What exactly is Ohio State getting itself into against UCLA?

New, comment

UCLA tests the theory if the best defense is a good offense.

NCAA Basketball: Michigan at UCLA Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

On this Ohio State basketball episode of "The Hangout in the Holyland," LGHL’s Matt Tamanini chats with BruinsNation.com Managing Editor Joe Piechowski about this Saturday's matchup between Ohio State and UCLA. The game will tip at 3:00 p.m. EST from Las Vegas, NV, and is part of the 2016 CBS Sports Classic.

So far this season, the Bruins are an impressive 11-0 and are scoring nearly 98 points per game. The Buckeyes on the other-hand are a frustratingly sloppy 8-2.

We ask Joe what he thinks the Buckeyes have to do to pull off the upset, whether or not Las Vegas will give the Bruins a home-court advantage, and look at what makes this team so special.

We also discuss...

  • Steve Alford’s sordid coaching past.
  • whether or not the best defense is a good offense.
  • whether or not UCLA has any weaknesses.
  • what the difference is between this season’s squad and previous teams.
