Bucks hoop team winning too
The Ohio State Buckeyes basketball team continues to make headlines with their fast start. Last night, they crushed Youngstown State 91-57 to raise their record to 6-0. The Buckeyes continue to win big, even with superstar Greg Oden on the bench with his wrist injury.
The freshman duo of Mike Conley Jr. and Daequan Cook continue to lead the team, waiting for the dominant Oden to return. Ohio Stateís first true test will come on the road this Wednesday at 2nd ranked North Carolina in the ACC/BIG TEN Challenge. The Tar Heels and Buckeyes battled for the best recruiting classes in the nation last year.
Buckeye hoops out to fast start
The Ohio State Buckeyes basketball team has started 3-0 and jumped to number 5 in the AP poll. The Bucks won the BCA Classic by running past Kent State in the second half. This team only returns one starter and is playing without heralded freshman Greg Oden.
As soon as Buckeye football is done, the town of Columbus should prepare themselves for more excitement on the hard court. Thad Matta and his team are going to make some noise this year.
Buckeye hoops start 2-0
The Ohio State Basketball team isnít taking long to make a statement. The young Buckeye team defeated a very experienced Loyola-Chicago team 87-75 and is 2-0 on the season. Ohio State was lead by Ron Lewis, who scored the first 7 points of each half, and ended up with 27 points for the game.
Coach Thad Matta was happy with the 2-0 start, but quickly pointed out that the Buckeyes were a long way from where they needed to be. Tonight, in the championship game, the Bucks will take on Kent State, a fellow neighbor from northern Ohio.
Cool profile of Greg Oden
It’s easy to get excited about Buckeye hoops this season after reading this great profile of Greg Oden.
Buckeyes and Matta make long term agreement
The Ohio State Buckeyes and head basketball coach Thad Matta have officially agreed to a long term contract. Matta and the Buckeyes are expected to be very successful this year. This freshman class is one of the best in the country.
Coach Matta has a passion to win and continues to convince top recruits that the Ohio State basketball program is on the rise. The incoming class for next year is ranked in the top 5, with a couple top players still not committed. This extension is something AD Gene Smith felt was critical for the stability and growth of this program.
