WBB Recap: Ohio State edged by Nebraska, 67-59

Written February 20th, 2014 by Ken

The Buckeyes were trying to break a four game losing streak by hosting the #17 Nebraska Cornhuskers. Meanwhile, Nebraska is on a six game winning streak.  Umm.. The Buckeyes moved to 14-15, 4-9 on the season with the loss to Nebraska. Despite a lackluster first half by both team, Ohio State played very well in the 2nd half until they hit the dreaded “can’t buy a basket stretch. The Buckeyes went scoreless from the 8:02 mark to the :43 mark, well over 7 minutes, to see the game slip away.

 

This was truly one of their better games of the season, and hats off to Coach Kevin McGuff and his team. The Buckeyes were on a stretch where frankly, they weren’t playing very well, and were hosting a red-hot, ranked opponent. However, tonight, they pushed Nebraska to the limit
