I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for a nice, basketball-related distraction. Lucky for us, we have one today. Hopefully we'll have the next few hours to gush over Deshaun's deluge of jumpers, Craft's sudden revitalization of his offense, and a few more FLYING SAM THOMPSON DOT GIFS after a nice Buckeye win.
The Buckeyes, winners of three straight after a close loss at Duke, are looking to continue their development of their younger players, and help Aaron Craft find his way out of a shooting funk that may be impacting other parts of his game. They'll be lead by Deshaun Thomas, who averaging 20.8 points per game, and that's with taking some time off during the last few blowouts.
The UNC Asheville Bulldogs are our opponent tonight. They're 3-6, but on a two game winning streak, after beating an NAIA school and a D2 school. They are also 0-13 all time against Big Ten teams, and 0-4 lifetime against Ohio State. If you'd like more specifics, why not check out our preview thread? It has everything you need to know to impress your friends today.
The rules, as always: don't be a jerk. Feel free to post your commentary, your questions, and your funny GIFs in the comments. We'll be around to make sure things don't get too crazy.
Be good to one another, and Go Buckeyes.
