As Urban Meyer would gladly tell you, the best part about being 2-0 is the chance to go 3-0. Tonight, the basketball Buckeyes look to go 3-0 against the Sacred Heart Pioneers (1-1) of the NEC.
If you want a more detailed breakdown of Sacred Heart, you can find it here, but I can sum things up for you. Sacred Heart isn't very good. You remember UMass-Lowell, the team Ohio State clobbered in their first game of the season? Those guys beat Sacred Heart. But the point of this game isn't really about whether the Buckeyes should beat the Pioneers. It's about watching the growth and development of Ohio State's young players, Matta's rotation, and the excellent play of Shannon Scott.
The Buckeyes lead the country right now in FG% (.633), and Shannon Scott's distribution is a major reason why. Scott is averaging a crazy 12.5 assists per game, and he has a great chance to add to his early season statbook tonight.
Which Buckeye will blossom tonight? How many SLAM THOMPSON DOT GIFs are we going to see? The only way to find out is to watch, so let's do it together, in the gamethread.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, Nov. 23 at 7:00 p.m. ET
