The BasketBucks are 2-0, but haven't really played any teams of note yet. In fact, their most recent win, over Grambling State, came over the worst team in all of D1, according to KenPom. That isn't going to change tonight, as Ohio State's opponent, the UT Arlington Mavericks, isn't exactly an immediate threat to crash the AP Top 25. But that doesn't mean the game isn't worth watching, or that there aren't insights we can glean from the game.
This is the last "tune up" game before Ohio State faces Memphis, their first real test of the season. Tonight, it will be worth seeing if Ohio State can cut down on the turnovers that have limited their offense over the last two games. Can the Buckeyes also continue their efficient shooting? Will we see any GIF worthy plays?
KenPom likes Ohio State to win tonight, 82-66. Will they? You have to tune in to find out, so why not watch with us?
