Ohio State's last game, an 82-74 loss to the North Carolina Tar Heels didn't go as planned, with the game not really as close as the final score indicated. The Tar Heels dominated the glass and the paint, the Buckeyes couldn't convert on a few open shots in the second half, and only a barrage of missed free throws helped keep Ohio State in the mix. That was Ohio State's second loss to a top team, and the quality win section of their resume remains awfully barren. Sorry Marquette, you're not impressing anybody.
That's probably not going to get fixed tonight. The Miami RedHawks aren't very good, and Ohio State should throttle them. But that doesn't mean Ohio State can't work to correct some of their problems, and hey, ask Michigan State, Michigan, Nebraska or Purdue how things are going with THEIR ability to beat crummy teams?
So let's see how Ohio State is able to get more production from their big men, and if their backcourt can find their shooting stroke. Let's watch the game together. Join us in the Game Thread.
