Ohio State Basketball – Month in Review: Buckeyes Dominate Tough January Schedule

Reading Time: 3 minutesFor the foreseeable future, I have decided to write Ohio State “Month in Review” articles for the rest of the year, due to the efficiency and consistency with them. With that being said, Ohio State basketball enjoyed a phenomenal month of January. After beginning the month with with blowout loss at Minnesota, the Buckeyes won every game they played except Purdue, who got the successful season sweep of Ohio State, beating them twice in the last two months.

Buckeyes Basketball Begins New Year With Tough Loss to Minnesota

Reading Time: 2 minutesI mentioned in my last Ohio State basketball article how good Minnesota Guard Marcus Carr is, and how full Ohio State’s hands would be with him. Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, it was a different Golden Gopher who torched the Buckeyes in this game. 7’0″ Center Liam Robbins had 27 points, 14 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and five blocks against the Buckeyes, and a dominated second half by Minnesota was enough to pull off a 77-60 win in a ranked Big Ten matchup. Offense Duane Washington was the only Buckeye to show up offensively for the...

Buckeyes Second Half Surge Too Much for #11 Rutgers

Reading Time: 2 minutesRon Harper Jr. is one of the best players in the Big Ten this season, and Ohio State got their shot at containing him. Harper entered the game averaging over 20 PPG while shooting over 60% from the field. Harper went for 20 points again, this time shooting just 8-20 from the field (40%). The Buckeyes started off with another slow start in the first half against Rutgers, but then a second half explosion by the Buckeyes caught the Scarlet Knights slipping, and the Buckeyes prevailed 80-68 at home in the huge upset win.

Ohio State Collapses Late, Falls to Northwestern 71-70

Reading Time: 2 minutesUGH! The game was going perfectly fine as the Buckeyes were essentially in control of most of the second half, but started collapsing late. With 6:58 left on the clock, Ohio State led 64-57, but Northwestern closed out the game outscoring the Buckeyes 14-6, and Duane Washington’s layup with 2 seconds left allowed Northwestern to prevail in a close, tightly contested Big Ten contest. Shooting and Turnovers CAN SOMEONE OTHER THAN SETH TOWNS PLEASE HIT A THREE POINTER! Seth Towns at halftime was 4-4 shooting, including 3-3 from three for 11 points. Unfortunately, he took just...
