It’d be putting it lightly to say that 2019 hasn’t gotten off to the best start for the Ohio State Buckeyes men’s basketball team. A five-game losing streak put a large dent in the Buckeyes’ postseason hopes, and has somewhat dimmed the optimism the fanbase shared to begin the season. The good news is that the losing streak is over, and after tonight’s tough matchup against what looks to be another title-contending Michigan team, the schedule opens up for Chris Holtmann’s group to grow and improve as we get closer to March.
On this episode of the Hangout in the Holy Land, Patrick Mayhorn and Colton Denning talk about expectations for the rest of the season, why they’re still confident that the team will improve, and take all of your questions regarding the team, and also some 2019 football topics as well.
