Following Ohio State’s 83-80 loss to Penn State at the Bryce Jordan Center, head coach Chris Holtmann spoke to the collective media about his team’s urgency and what changes Penn State made at halftime that his team was unable to adjust to. After speaking with Holtmann, Ohio State media (literally just Land-Grant Holy Land and the Columbus Dispatch) spoke to Roddy Gayle, Bruce Thornton, and Zed Key outside the Ohio State locker room.

Gayle described his team as “lackadaisical” in the second half. After Ohio State went up by 18, its defense sagged and Penn State started knocking down all of its shots. Thornton said that it is “too soon to tell” if the team is resilient or not because this is essentially the first adversity it has faced so far this season. Key said that he was “totally alright” after taking a fall on his head during the game and that the loss hurts because it was a game they know they should’ve had.
