After a shockingly flat first half, No. 18 Ohio State (16-6, 9-4) rallied back to pummel Minnesota Tuesday night, 70-45. Connor and Justin compared this game to a high vs low-seeded NCAA Tournament game, and note that OSU’s defense has steadily improved since the Rutgers game.

We also discuss Austin Parks’ commitment and what it means for the Buckeyes’ frontcourt, as well as our general excitement for both the 2022 and 2023 classes. Ohio State may not be great next season, but damnit, they’re going to be a lot of fun to watch.

The episode is closed with a brief preview of this weekend’s showdown with Iowa, and we ponder why Keegan Murray isn’t getting more national attention for the fantastic season he’s having. The battle between those two is going to be must-watch TV (on FOX at 2:30 pm E.T., specifically).
