Another fall weekend, another above-200 KenPom ranked Ohio State non-conference opponent.
After a string of four difficult to stomach losses (albeit two against far better than this opposition), Thad Matta's basketball Buckeyes look to get back on track against what should be an easy W in VMI (OSU's 15.5-point favorites).
The good news for the Buckeyes? Including this one, their next two games are winnable.
The bad news? At least for Saturday, they'll have to do so with rising star big man Daniel Giddens. Giddens is sidelined for this one with an undisclosed illness.
