    Fitting end to a terribly frustrating season. Hopefully some new blood, and some addition by subtraction means better days ahead.

    We have no scorers besides Deangelo because we don't play but 6 to 7 guys and really to heavily on our go to player. We have other guys that can score, but we don't groom and integrate them into the game.

    Good season everyone maybe D'Angelo will shock us like Jared Sullinger did when he came back after a disappointing loss in 2011 tournament.

    Just sayin': A Wildcat vs Wildcat semi-final game would be interesting.

    Rebounding is an attitude and one we sorely lack...look at MSU, year in and year out they are a great rebounding team, because Izzo emphasizes the importance of it.

    They are what we thought they were. Pleased that they won the first game. Predicted a 72-55 loss in this one, so pretty close there. Ready to see new players next year.

    Agree. Rebounding, especially defensive rebounding when you're 'supposed' to be in better position for a rebound, is about effort and 'wanting' it.

    You might have noticed that McConnell totally dominated Russell! Lockdown D, and near perfect PG play.

    Played poorly in a game where we were playing a better team and had to play very well to win.

    Thanks to the seniors. They won a lot of games.

    Now on to football. I hear our team might be pretty good this year.

    Ehhh Russell played poorly but a lot of guys gave us more than they usually do. Team is what it is.

    ArmyVet83 Prepare yourselves. For now, I summon...the end!

    I have not seen McConnell play this year but I have spoke to a few 'Zona fans that compare him to Aaron Craft. Not as tenacious of a defender but a much more polished offensive player than AC. Zona did not play their best game but OSU did play them pretty tough defensively for more than half the game. One of these days Thad will learn to develop better depth. As much as I hate to see the season end, I won't miss watching this team play. The last two seasons have been painful to watch. Hope that Russell returns, Loving hits the gym and gets stronger. Hope that the big guys coming in can perform better than McDonald, Williams and Lee. Sad to see when our best post player is Tate. And hope the guys returning and the guys coming in can make some FT's.

    Win or lose, we are all Buckeyes. Thank you Seniors. Take that degree and go grab life by the balls.

    And Fuck M*ch*g*n!

    Who are the "Big Guys" coming in. I was always hoping that someday Amir Williams could really surprise us but it never came to be. It just seemed to me, his footwork was not that good.

    They played with a lot of fire and toughness, especially in such a mismatch of size. Amir fought hard.

    In the end, the second half began and they were who we thought they were. A team of non scorers who need a freshman to take almost every shot because the others struggle to convert. He shouldn't force things but him doing so is usually a better option than wide open shots from Thompson, Williams and sometimes tate and Scott.

    I agree with the lack of rebounding from Thad's teams over the years and the lack of utilization of the back up wings, but this just wasn't a very good team.

    I just wanted to see heart and fight and I saw that for most of this week.

    I hope DAR does what's best for him. He has a lot of things to improve upon but this isn't the nfl.

    When you come back in basketball, those flaws become weaknesses. Right now his potential is remarkable. If he does not improve as much as expected during a sophomore college season, he could slide in the next draft. That's without considering a potential injury.
