Estan Tyler and the UMKC Kangaroos look to play spoiler for the #4 Ohio State Buckeyes. - Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE
Thad Matta's Buckeyes seek to move to 4-0 on the season.
While hardly the opponent of Washington's caliber, the Ohio State Buckeyes and 9th year head coach Thad Matta welcome in a team from The Summit league, the University of Missouri-Kansas City Kangaroos. Deshaun Thomas and Aaron Craft have more than lived up to their billing in the early goings, but can they avoid a potential look ahead game with Duke looming just on the horizon?
The Ohio State basketball starters this evening will be Aaron Craft, Lenzelle Smith Junior, Sam Thompson, Deshaun Thomas, and Evan Ravenel. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? The Buckeyes will look to continue the momentum that led them to the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off championship this past weekend and in doing so keep their perfect 2012-2013 season alive.
Below is your GameThread. As per usual, we don't have a ton of rules, but we do have one. The rule? Don't talk about the GameThread. Just kidding; tell EVERYONE about it. Facebook it, tweet it, pinterest it, put it on some social media network none of us have even heard of yet. But when they (and you) come to talk hoops, please always pay it forward. If you can't be respectful of your fellow Buckeyes (or visiting Roos), you probably need to find somewhere else to take in the game.
