OSU Men’s Basketball Weekly Wrap-up

We missed last week’s wrap-up, so were covering two week’s worth of exciting Ohio State basketball. 24-0 baby!

First, let’s take a break to consider how cool college athletes can be. Jared Sullinger is one of the most recognizable college basketball players and is currently living quite the charmed freshman life. It’s good to see he’s got a good sense of humor, too.

(12) Purdue 64 vs (1) Ohio St 87 – Coming off a close game against Illinois, the Buckeyes man-handled Purdue from start to finish. With a hoop looking like a hula-hoop, Ohio State hit 55% of their shots from the field, including 11-19 from behind the arc. At one point Ohio State was up by 31. This game cleared up any doubts of whether this was a #1 team or not.

(1) Ohio St 58 vs Northwestern 57 – Freaking trap games, how do they work?!

Michigan 53 vs. (1) Ohio St 62 – Michigan led Ohio State a one point by almost a touchdown. Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke are wondering what that felt like.

(1) Ohio St 82 vs. (20) Minnesota 69 – For a couple years now I’ve been meaning to put together a post about the Minnesota/Ohio State fight from back in the day. But after bullying the Gophers for forty minutes Sunday afternoon it just didn’t feel right.

Which brings us to this weekend, when the Buckeyes travel to Madison to take on the Wisconsin Badgers at the Kohl Center. 11W look at previous visits to Wisconsin with the ugly details. The BBC has a Wisconsin preview. What is it with Ohio State and struggles against Wisconsin, whether it be in football or basketball?

Call me an optimist but I sense a big win tomorrow.


  1. Knock on wood Kaiser 😉

  2. Sorry about that, Eric 🙁

  3. No worries. I figured we were gonna lose anyway, so I’m not terribly disappointed…other than ditching that 15 point lead midway through the 2nd. Ugh…

  4. Yeah, I know but man why did it have to be Wisconsin!?
