After kicking off the season less than stellar, Thad Matta's Ohio State basketball squad have won four of their last five ball games. Coming off victories over Northern Illinois, Kentucky, Mercer, and South Carolina State, the Buckeyes are looking to keep their new found momentum rolling tonight against the Gophers of Minnesota.
Richard Pitino, and Minnesota head to Columbus 6-6 on the year.

Can Jae'Sean Tate, Keita Bates-Diop, and OSU fight off Minnesota for their ninth win? Let's find out together in our GameThread.
