Despite loss, Illini looking ahead to postseason

Despite losing three of its last four games, Illinois is looking forward to playing close to home in this week's Big Ten tournament at United Center in Chicago. Even a 68-55 loss at No. 14 Ohio State on Sunday didn't dampen the expectation of playing for keeps in front of a lot of friendly faces. ''It's fun. It's closer to home for many of us,''...

Illinois-Ohio St. Preview

The Buckeyes won't take the bait. Yes, they know a home win over Illinois on Sunday afternoon coupled with an Indiana loss later in the day at Michigan would leave them in a multi-team tie for the Big Ten championship. But they refuse to let anyone think they're getting ahead of themselves by saying they'll be rooting for the archrival Wolverines. Instead, the party...

Finally, A Signature Win.

Craft Leads Buckeyes In Win Over Sparty

In a game that I couldn’t necessarily see, as I was being directly blocked by the backside of the basket, Ohio State got a much needed win against a great Michigan State basketball team. From the get-go, it was clear that the “good version” of the Buckeyes were out to play. They were hustling and calm, two things that Ohio State has seemed to lack in bad losses. Although Ohio...

Buckeyes Force 24 Turnovers, Whack The Gophers

This year’s Buckeye team was always going to have an offense that trailed the defense. The defense has been on an elite level among the college ranks for the last couple years, and they showed exactly why last night. The 18th-ranked Ohio State’s defense forced 24 turnovers and held Minnesota to under 30% shooting as they allowed just nine points in a stretch of 15 minutes in...

Buckeyes Survive Late Press From Iowa

Fresh off their home victory against the previously undefeated in-conference Wisconsin as well as close losses to Indiana and Michigan State earlier in the season, the Iowa Hawkeyes were looking to draw more Big Ten blood in Columbus to show they belong in the discussion of Big Ten contention. They nearly did so behind a flurry of offensive rebounding and a very effective fullcourt...

Hawkeyes trail big, come back, fall short, 72-63

With three freshmen in the starting lineup, every game's a learning experience for the Iowa Hawkeyes. It might not have been a new lesson Tuesday night, but that made it no less painful.

With the light part of their Big Ten schedule behind them and several stiff challenges awaiting, we’ll soon find out just what the Michigan State Spartans are made of in 2013.

Buckeyes' 56-53 win over Michigan extra sweet

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State's win over Michigan Sunday ended Michigan's 16-0 start. It also kept the Wolverines from being No. 1 in the new national polls released Monday. Those are subplots to what was a very intense, very important game in what's going to be grueling Big Ten race. But every Ohio State player knew that Michigan came into the game as the nation's...

Ohio State falls to Illinois in blowout, 74-55

Deshaun Thomas, Evan Ravenel and Aaron Craft headed to the Ohio State bench for good Saturday with just under 2 minutes to play. Their faces dripped with sweat and, as each tried to catch his breath, they looked beaten. They were. Badly. Thad Matta, the coach of the eighth-ranked Buckeyes, was pulling the heart of his lineup from the game, throwing in the towel in a 74-55 loss...

Williams Hopes To Get Past Mental Struggles

Ohio State center Amir Williams seems to boast the physical tools needed to be the Buckeyes' next dominant force in the paint. However, the 6-11, 250-pound sophomore has remained behind Evan Ravenel on the depth chart despite coming into this season as the favorite to be OSU's starting big man. Williams feels as if his mental struggles could be the reason for that.
