After Ohio State’s 71-65 road loss to the Indiana Hoosiers, we spoke with Bruce Thornton, Zed Key, and Chris Holtmann down in the bowels of Assembly Hall.

Thornton said that this loss stung because they know how much winning on the road means in the Big Ten, and they felt they had an opportunity to roll into Assembly Hall and pick up a win. Key said Ohio State got a lot of good, open looks and second-chance opportunities, but the shots that fall all the time for them were not falling on Saturday night.

Holtmann said one of Ohio State’s biggest struggles was getting clean, unobstructed looks below the basket. Even on second-chance opportunities, Malik Reneau and Kel’el Ware made it really tough to finish. He also said that, despite going 3-for-17, he does not think Roddy Gayle was “pressing.”
