Lets find out what the BBC writers want to see out of the basketball team this week.
Healthy Sully. Whatever’s going on with his back, make it all better in time for conference play.
The New Kid. I want to hear how Ross is getting involved in the team’s preparations… will he be up to speed?
Defend The Line. Ohio State has the ability to play with anyone in the country unless they struggle to defend the deep bombs- they stifled the Blue Devils, will they do the same to the Jayhawks?
Courage Under Fire. I’ve been to a game in the Phog Alllen Fieldhouse, and it’s not an easy place for visiting teams. Can the Buckeyes win their first true road test?
A healthy Jared Sullinger. the nature of college basketball and the nature of back spasms create a situation where there is absolutely no need to rush Sullinger back on the court before he is ready, potentially re-aggrevating and prolonging the injury. Losses in college basketball don’t matter, especially against quality opponents so, as much as we’d like to see him play against Kansas, only if he is truly 100% healthy por favor.
DeShaun Thomas continuing to roll. He showed what he can do on the biggest stage against the Dukies, let’s see him continue to build on that performance and become a more consistent scoring force down the stretch.
Aaron Craft. It’s just fun watching him play.
