Buckeyes show strength on road

The Buckeyes were dealt their first loss of the year and it was in heartbreaking fashion as they fell 81-79 against Indiana. AGAIN, in what is becoming a common occurence for the buckeyes, OSU was homered against the Hoosiers.

A charge against Dials in the waning seconds of the game gave IU the free throws they needed to take the lead for the eventual win. That simply isn’t a call you see ANYWHERE in the last few seconds of the game, but the officiating seemed inconsistent the entire night.

That being said, this was a very strong game for the Buckeyes. There are always problems with officiating, but the great teams have to rise above all of that. OSU isn’t great yet, but they are good and a very solid Big Ten team. A strong showing on the road against a tough IU team proves that they can hang with anyone, but If I’m ranking the b10 top five right now, it’s looking

1. Michigan State
2. Illinois
3. Indiana
4. Iowa
5. Ohio State
