Were Ohio State's Struggles Inevitable?

With the recent defections of Jared Sullinger and Deshaun Thomas to the NBA, maybe it was only a matter of time before the Ohio State basketball hit a losing skid. Having lost five of their last six, the Buckeyes will head to Madison looking for a bounce back win against Wisconsin.

Buckeyes hope they learned lesson

There's something about traveling to Northwestern that seems to summon problems for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Scott Ready For Bigger Role

With Jared Sullinger on the roster last season, Ohio State basketball coach Thad Matta did all that he could to surround the Buckeyes' philosophy around the All-American big man. It worked, as OSU advanced to its second Final Four in Matta's tenure. Without Sullinger this year, OSU will take a faster approach. That could start with Shannon Scott.
