Buckeyes come up with a big win

The Buckeyes came up with a huge 77-67 win over the Wisconsin Badgers Wednesday night. This is a big win in a lot of ways. It is the most notable win so far for Ohio State, but it also showed that this team is for real. They are no longer forced to cling to narrow losses to Indiana and Michigan State to prove they belong as they proved they are the Big Ten’s second-best team tonight (still behind MSU at this point IMO) with a strong showing.

Note to Ohio State fans- Thad Matta is a fantastic basketball coach. Yes, this Buckeyes team is underrated, but Matta is a big reason they are a top-20 team. A lot of people close to the program keep telling me that the coaching is the reason they are where they are this year and it’s looking more and more like Matta is one of the great young coaches in the game right now.

It is a great time to be a Buckeye basketball fan.
