Penn State basketball isn't very good this season. They weren't very good last season either, but that didn't stop them from beating Ohio State not once, but twice during the regular season. The Nittany Lions have played many Big Ten teams tough, and are capable of beating the Buckeyes if they aren't on their A game. Can Ohio State still grab the win, playing without second leading scorer Marc Loving again?
Ohio State sits in a five-way tie for second place in the Big Ten right now, and with games still to play against Michigan State and Wisconsin, the Buckeyes can't afford to drop a league game that they should win, short handed or not. Ohio State will look to D'Angelo Russell to lead the way, but also to Keita Bates-Diop, who picked up 14 points and nine boards against Rutgers, and Jae'Sean Tate, who threw in 20. Penn State has one of the most dynamic guards in the conference in D.J. Newbill.
Can Ohio State win their 19th game and take a step towards cementing a spot near the top of of the league? Join us here in the GameThread to find out.
