Thad Matta's undefeated basketball Buckeyes look to stay that way against ULM zombie rockstar legend Keith Richard (okay, okay, so he's the Funroe native son, not the plural last name possessing rock god) and the Louisiana-Monroe WarHawks.
It'd be impossible to forget this past Saturday's epic, come from behind victory over Notre Dame (particularly if you were one of the many that changed the channel out of frustration in the waining moments). But with a transcendental performance for the ages like that, you always have to worry about a hangover effect. Though the Buckeyes find themselves double digit favorites against ULM, they'll have to close their 2013 non-conference slate the right way if they want to open B1G play against Purdue still unscatched.
