Ohio State is sitting just outside the Top 10 in the AP Poll, and feeling a little better about themselves after a big second half to put away Colgate. Tonight, they'll face perhaps their toughest test of the nonconference outside of their showdown with North Carolina in Chicago, when they take on the High Point Panthers. Don't laugh. This could be a real basketball game.
The Panthers will be led by high flyin' John Brown, who averages about 20 and 5 a game, and has dropped 26 on Clemson this season. The Buckeyes will be looking to get their backcourt, especially Shannon Scott, back in order, after he's suffered a bit of a shooting slump after lighting up offenses at the start of the season.
Can Ohio State get a win over a mid-major that should be an NCAA caliber team? Can Ohio State continue their stifling defense and get their seniors back on track? Better watch the game with us. Join us in the Game Thread.
