During this week’s episode, we catch up on all of the news that we’ve missed over the past two weeks. We start by giving a big picture look at Ohio State’s loss to Villanova in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Villanova was obviously the better, more well-coached team. But did the Buckeyes leave it all out there and give them their best punch? We think so.

We then discuss Malaki Branham’s future in Columbus — will the pain of this year’s tournament loss impact his decision at all? With Branham climbing mock drafts before the NBA combine even starts, it’s looking less and less likely that we will see him in an Ohio State jersey again.

We close by rambling about who we think will be filling the two vacant assistant coaching spots as well as which potential transfers Ohio State could go after. Will the Buckeyes add a former Ohio State point guard to their coaching staff who we’re already very familiar with? And will Holtmann and Diebler land a dynamic wing from the portal — a la a Terrence Shannon or Jalen Bridges?
