Buckeye Hoops 411

Buckeye Football 411

  • The Wait Is Over! As you’re reading this, the Ohio State football team is preparing for it’s first practice of the spring; and the coaches are as excited as the fans are, it seems. Be on the lookout for news and notes from today’s open practice, as well as a great preview from the Athletic Department later Wednesday. As happy as Buckeye fans are to see the new regime, I’d have to say Badger cheerleaders were even more excited.
  • Tonight! We Dine In The WHAC!!!! Monday was the “Champion’s Dinner” as a reward for hard work during spring conditioning, and while details are still forthcoming we know that there was a relatively small number of Buckeyes who were honored for their efforts in the classroom, weightroom, and on the practice field. Sounds as if the “winners” were treated to filet and other goodies, while the rest of the team had “grilling” fare- hot dogs, burgers, etc.  Please note that I said “grilling”…

Impressions: Missouri and Kansas

Written February 9th, 2011 by Jay

Early in the college basketball season it’s not uncommon to see a high-scoring game, at least for one of the teams involved in any particular matchup.  With a diet heavy in cupcakes in the early going, elite teams are given an opportunity to light up the scoreboard at least a few times as they simply overpower weaker opponents and work on the jump shots and fast break drives they hope to use later in the season in a more limited fashion.  However, there are times when two top level teams get together well into the season and have a good old fashioned shootout.  Such was the case on Monday night in Lawrence when the Kansas Jayhawks played host to the Missouri Tigers.

The final score on the night was 103-86 in favor of Kansas.  The Jayhawks shot a blistering 60.7% from the field and 57.9% from three, which is always going to give you a good shot at picking up a W.  The Kansas scoring was complemented by an impressive 23 assists, and for good measure the team recorded 38 rebounds, 14 of which came on the offensive end.  The Tigers’ field goal percentage of 51.7% would draw the praise of most coaches and commentators on a typical night, but on this date it simply wasn’t enough.  Missouri bested Kansas in the free throw department, shooting 18-22 from the line, but only logged 20 rebounds and ended up having three different players foul out before the game was over.
