For most of the second half they were dead in the water. Fans were already looking forward to Sunday’s game against Iowa.
But somehow, the Ohio State Buckeyes almost found a way.
Overcoming a 17-point deficit with seven minutes left, the Buckeyes forced overtime and nearly pulled off a stunning win over Michigan State on Tuesday, losing 72-68, at the Breslin Center.
Trailing 55-38 Ohio State turned up the pressure defensively and went on a 20-3 run, forcing turnover after turnover while finally getting hot offensively. One of the key plays was when Craft through an inbound pass off Payne’s backside and made an easy layup to cut the lead to one.
Ohio State actually had a chance to win at the end of regulation but a Shannon Scott layup rimmed out at the buzzer.
In the overtime Ohio State took it’s first lead since … [Read More]

Big Ten Championship game
I’m sitting here putting this together and still can’t belive the Buckeyes lost and the way in which it happened. I knew the Spartan defense was good, I just didn’t realize how physical they were. I knew the Silver Bullet defense was much maligned, essentially, all season but they’ve held on long enough to claim wins. Maybe the biggest shocker was that I didn’t think the Spartan offense was good enough to wear them out the Buckeye defense like they did.
Charles Davis pointed out in the late stages of the third quarter that the Buckeye defense, most notably the front four, were giving away all the tell-tale signs of … [Read More]
