Following Ohio State’s 73-56 win over the Western Michigan Broncos Sunday afternoon, Jamison Battle, Dale Bonner, and Chris Holtmann spoke to the media about the contest, which was technically the opening round of the Emerald Coast Classic.
Battle and Bonner spent some time talking about Zed Key when asked about his recovery from shoulder surgery and his quality of play so soon after getting back on the court. Battle said that Key is a “gamer” and that his years of experience in the Big Ten show how tough he is. Both he and Bonner said that they loved Key’s three-pointer he knocked down in the first half.
Holtmann gave credit to Western Michigan, and said, “Once they’re healthier they’re going to have a really good year.” He discussed the difference in pace when you’re playing against a zone defense vs typical man-to-man, and also talked about Bruce Thornton’s progression into a more natural and effective point guard.
