Thad Matta's Ohio State's all-time winningest coach. If you don't see how that's a validation of how great he is for OSU, well, we can't help you.
In the more immediate here and now, the Buckeyes take on another Big Ten Tournament test in a rubber match with the Michigan State Spartans. The Bucks didn't play their best, but still had a chance to take down Sparty until Denzel Valentine pretty much did everything. After a slow-ish start to the season, MSU enter B1G tourney play with all the momentum in the world and the confidence fitting a Tom Izzo team heading into the heart of March. Can the Buckeyes find a way to derail them and sneak on to the Big Ten semifinals?
Below is your OSU-MSU GameThread. Be cool to one another, make fun of the "Fire Matta" crowd, and we'll all live harmoniously. Except them. On the plus, I hear their second favorite team Kentucky plays tomorrow.
