The Ohio State basketball season ended to Dayton in Buffalo in mid-March. The Buckeyes ended the season with an overall record of 25-10 and a conference record of 10-8, placing them 5th in the B1G. Similar to WVa’s article on the women’s season, I’ve asked several writers at tBBC their impressions on various aspects of the season. Below are our thoughts.
1. What is your impression of the 2013-2014 season?
Scott: Disappointing. They didn’t seem to have a killer’s mentality and struggled with pansies.
WVa: Missed opportunities. So many close games and so many missed free throws cost this team. When they got into slumps they struggled to get out if them. When they were good, they were one of the better teams in the country. Not how season finished though.
Eric: Insert raspberry here. -> http://www.thesneeze.com/art/
(It’s amazing that a 25-10 season elicits this response. But with the talent and experience we had, this is appropriate). [Eric gets bonus points for the Bill the Cat reference. Well done]
Ken: Frustrating. For a team that had 5 upperclassmen on the court, there were too many moments of poor decision making. Marginal-to-poor 3-point shooting and free throw shooting along with a seeming lack of interest to offensive rebound all season long was disappointing to me.
Mali: Meh. I wasn’t allowed to watch much of it, but I felt bad for Aaron that this was the way his final season would go. There seemed to be no “guts” to the squad- no killer instinct, just a commitment to playing down or up to the level of whoever they were facing, but no ability/desire to put the other teams away.
