The one thing missing from the Ohio State Men’s Basketball season so far is a big road win against a ranked opponent. Although Illinois isn’t ranked, they are the probably the closest thing to a ranked opponent the Buckeyes will meet on the road until mid-February.
Big Ten player of the week Jared Sullinger is coming off one of his best weeks at Ohio State putting up 27 points and 40 rebounds in his last two outings. No Meyers Leonard of Illinois will try to slow Sullinger and the two should provide an interesting matchup. Buckeyes should win this one but the Illinois home crowd could be a factor.
