    One thing that has consistently frustrated me with Matta's teams is free throw shooting, and that was probably the difference here. 5-13 from the charity stripe is unacceptable.

    Gotta draw something up better knowing the players switch on any crossing (unless you're UM).

    Didn't expect this win unfortunately.

    Gotta go right back up to that shithole state and beat that school up north now. Fuck Michigan.

    You shouldn't front-run and post Henry. Uh oh, don't look now, one of your other favorites is playing now :roll1:

    Yep. And as good of a coach as I think Thad is, his final possession play-calling leaves something to be desired at times. They had about 5 minutes of real time to set up that final play, and the best you can do is attempt a half-court pass to Thompson, who is posting his man up at the middle of the court? Pffffft.

    Sam has to go to the ball. Trying to catch a pass falling back on that play was a recipe for disaster.

    Or you could try to do something other than the 'woe is me' schtick non-stop.
    1:34 HenryMuto - Guys 5/13 that is why we are going to lose if we do JFC
    1:35 scarletmike - Buckeye lead thanks to the jumper from Scott! Boom!

    But seeking to prove Jim Tressel right about some fans and misery, you don't miss a beat and offer this up instead:

    1:36 HenryMuto - There is no reason Ohio State should lose this game Michigan State is just not that good

    1:36 OHSportsFan - Woo woo. Keep it up Bucks!


    Maybe if you would stop being a fan of every team in america, especially Kentucky, you could find pleasure in good things happening to OSU basketball.


    Not a freaking peep from you after any good play down the stretch. Just moaning about how everything is awful and this is going to end badly. Well, I guess you had the last laugh :(

    We all get grumpy during games but mercy, you don't even enjoy contested threes by slam Thompson to tie the game!

    They looked good until the last six or seven minutes of the first half. They came out and took it to them in the second half. Not at all impressed with their free throw shooting again.

    I could have gone to the game today with some Sparty buddies of mine, but the weather did not cooperate for me to get there. One of my buds texted me that the Buckeyes were definitely more talented but Matta just got out coached. 5-13 from the line doesn't help.

    And it was even worse than the numbers show--Russell's miss late in the game was the front end of a 1-1 and thus could've been two points. Ugh.

    Kudos to Scott for elevating his game in Loving's absence and Russell's slump. It looked like it might get out of hand early but they weathered the storm

    Still a lot of work to be done but if Loving can earn his spot back this could be a surprisingly solid team.

    I have watched video of that last play about 5-6 times and you are exactly about your comment regarding the team defense. Costello set a pick close to the top of the circle and Valentine (who was being guarded by Thompson) came from the left side and Thompson ran into Costello a little which was just enough time for Valentine to catch and shoot. I do not know who was supposed to be guarding Castello but they were nowhere in sight and no one from the opposite side of the court came over to help. Pretty frustrating because I think we were the better team.

    Thompson went under or tried to go through screens on both of the Valentine threes near the end of the game. You have to go over that screen 100% of the time. Craft was adept at it but then we knew that.
