    The Buckeyes travel to Assembly Hall, where they look to avenge last season's 72-64 loss to the Hoosiers.

    Huge game. Looking at OSU's conference schedule, the road portion of the schedule is front-loaded with the first 3 road games being among the 5 toughest they will have in conference play. OSU has never won on the road at Minnesota, Indiana and MSU all in the same season. Leg 1 is done. Leg 2 is here.

    IU laid an egg in their last outing at MSU. They also got handled against Louisville. However, they have only lost once at home, early in the season and surely will be looking to make a statement vs. OSU just like Minnesota was. IU has a great shooting team and loves to play fast. IU has a great offense but poor defense, as they don't block shots, don't force turnovers and don't keep teams off the offensive glass very well - not a very good combination. It will be interesting to see how this game plays out. KenPom rates IU as a worse team than Minnesota.

    If OSU wins this game, they will have put themselves back in position to contend for the Big Ten title I think.

    Just won 2 great seats to this game from my work. Some salty people in the office that "a Buckeye" won the IU tickets. :lol:

    Win or lose, I'm sure Tom Crean has some scissors he plans to break out.

    This game is going to tell the Buckeyes a lot about who they are and how badly they want to achieve their goals.

    Bucks made their first 3 point attempt today. Didn't make any of their 11 tries last year at IU.

    Early 7 point lead quickly evaporates.

    Some dude for IU picked up 2 in less than 90 seconds and had to leave before they scored a point. :lol:

    Lee blows a layup, then just stands there shaking his head while IU goes 5 on 4 the other way. I'd sit him down straight away and let him know that's unacceptable - not hustling back down the floor.
