BlackRock Gotham Classic- OSU VS ND

Ohio State will be taking on the Fighting Irish in the annual Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden. The game till tip off at 7:30 PM and will be televised. The Buckeyes are coming into the game ranked 3rd in country with a record of 11-0. This is one of their final non conference games and there are many things Buckeye fans are questioning about the team. Our last away game was at a not so great Marquette team. This is only the second time the Buckeyes take the road for a game. But, this is a neutral site which will most likely be filled with Ohio State fans. Notre Dame is coming into this game 8-3. I believe this will not be an easy win for the Buckeyes. Last year Temple had an upset over Syracuse in the premiere game of the Gotham Classic.

Notre Dame is lead by senior guard Jerian Grant averaging a little over 19 points per game. They are also lead by senior center Garrick Sherman who averages a little over 14 points a game and a little over 7 rebounds a game. This will not be a breeze for Amir and Trey. Notre Dame has three loses. Two loses to teams that don’t have a high prestige. Their other lose comes from a ranked Iowa. I think this is one of the Buckeye’s hardest games played so far in the season.


Ohio State is looking to fix out the little flaws before heading into conference play. They came out very slow against Delaware. I think Ohio State will come out firing with the excitement of playing on the big stage at MSG. Ohio State fans a looking for a little more offense out of Laquinton Ross. He is the guy that can put up big numbers for OSU. Craft and Scott should be able to shutdown the back court for ND. If Amir and Trey hold up in the paint it will all work out for Ohio State.


The Garden hold a lot of history in sports. I am sure both teams will be coming out playing at full force. This will be a interesting game to watch. I will be at the game and am hoping to see a lot of Buckeye fans!
