Ohio State wasn't quite able to avenge their first loss against Maryland this past weekend, but they can try and take their frustrations out on an old nemesis, the Wisconsin Badgers.
Though Bo Ryan's long since ridden off into the sunset, Thad Matta can try to get career win number one against interim Badgers head coach Greg Gard. But it comes in an always tough to play locale against a team that despite all their struggles is still Top 55 in KenPom at present.
The math says Ohio State's roughly four-point dogs this evening. Our partners at OddsShark says the gulf is even bigger (-6.5). Can the baby Buckeyes get back on their toes or will they become another loss closer to an NIT (or worse) bid?
