Ohio State-American 2013: GameThread

New, 80 comments

Ohio State's other Top Ten squad is in action tonight, so why don't you join us?

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

After a dominant win over Marquette, the basketball Buckeyes are back in business, taking on the American Eagles of the Easton Mall Patriot League. The Eagles, at 1-1, are struggling to score this season, which probably means this is the absolute worst time to face the abject terror of a defensive team the Buckeye project to be (ask Marquette). American will try to use their Princeton Offense to shorten the game and generate high percentage looks to give themselves a shot.

If you want to learn more about the recent history of American University basketball, and get a better handle on the key players in this matchup, you're going to want to read my Preview, which you can see here.

The Eagles are heavy underdogs here, but anything can happen, and you wouldn't want to miss the next SLAM THOMPSON DOT GIF would you? Of course not. So come join us here in the GameThread below. Make jokes, share observations, post funny GIFS, and join me as I taunt my previous undergraduate institution, before wisely becoming a Buckeye. It'll be fun.
