What We Learned From Week 1 of College Basketball

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe 2020-21 college basketball season is back, and while this isn’t the time to make any definitive claims, here are some observations we’ve noticed after week one.  The Zags’ are a team to be reckoned with Last season, Gonzaga spent four weeks at No. 1 and seven weeks at No. 2 in the AP Top 25 poll, which is where it finished in the final rankings.

Buckeyes Avoid Upset From UMass Lowell With 74-64 Win: Second Half Resurgence

Reading Time: 2 minutesPhew. College basketball has officially begun in Columbus, Ohio! Seeing the way the game played out, UMass Lowell honestly could have pulled this out in convincing fashion. It was good to have one of these games now, so the Buckeyes can be better prepared for late game situations moving forward. They do need to find a flow going offensively, and they have to be able to hit some shots. They can’t have an over-reliance of their defense like they did at times last season. Offensive Struggles The Buckeyes shot a horrendous 4-18 from three, and struggled...

Maryland Basketball: Record Prediction

Reading Time: 3 minutesThe college basketball season is starting in UNDER TWO DAYS! I’m here to predict the Terps’ whole schedule from start to finish: November 25th: Old Dominion at Maryland – W: In the first game of the season the Terps should win in commanding fashion. Aaron Wiggins starts out as expected. November 27th: Navy at Maryland – W: We should see another easy win here. I expect a big game out of Jairus Hamilton here. November 29th: Mount St Mary’s at Maryland – W: Hakim Hart goes for his career-high and the Terps get the W. December 1st: Monmouth at Maryland – W: First game in December and the Terps win by 20+. December 4th: George Mason at Maryland – W: This game will be extremely close but our defense ends up making winning plays. December 9th: Maryland at Clemson – W: This is the only game we could possibly come out with an L in our non-conference but I think the best player on the floor in Aaron Wiggins makes big plays. December 14th: Rutgers at Maryland – L: The Terps, tired off of a tough win @ Clemson will drop their first Big Ten game to a Rutgers team that is competing for a Big Ten title. December 22nd: Lasalle at Maryland – W: Maryland will win but Lasalle is going to stay hanging around....

Buckeyes Dismantle Illinois State in Season Opener

Reading Time: 3 minutesJustice Sueing is the real deal. Sueing scored 19 points in his debut with the Buckeyes, shooting 8-9 from the field to go along with 8 rebounds and 3 steals. A transfer from California, Sueing averaged roughly 14 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and over a steal per game over the last 2 seasons, shooting 43% from the field, and 30% from three. This might be the most well-rounded group the Buckeyes have had in a few years, and they have a plethora of scoring threats. They are usually a stout team defensively, and they have...
