The season starts next week. I'll keep this updated throughout the season, but let's get the conversation going!


Ohio State will play their exhibition game against UNC-Pembroke tomorrow.

OSU in 18/19 is short on raw talent and experience. Coach Holtmann however seems to have a knack for getting the most out of the players he has on hand. That said the young Bucks have a shot at twenty wins and a possible NCAA tourney berth.

In their exhibition game last night, there was lots of playing time to go around to get everyone prepped for the season with some actual minutes on the floor. OSU topped UNC Pembroke 81-63. Kaleb Wesson looked to be in mid-season form with a 12 point-10 rebound double double. Micah Potter notched 13 points. Kyle Young, Luther Muhammad and Jaedon LaDee notched 9 points each.

Now that they've prepped for the season, it kicks off on Wednesday when they travel to Cincinnati.

The Buckeyes suffered a huge loss today for their team this season. Junior, Micah Potter announced today that he will be transferring.

I haven't seen any reasoning yet, but that must have been the case. Especially transferring two days before the first game. I couldn't find anything where it said he was transferring to either.

Nice win for the young Buckeyes over UC. Really like Washington and Muhammad. Not often you get Freshman to play that well defensively, early in the season. They have a little "swag" to them also, which is refreshing. Andre Wesson looks much improved, C.J. Jackson played well, and K. Wesson looks trimmed up and poised for a big year. The x factor this team might be Kyle Young. He played very well. Not going to be a big scorer, but he does everything else. The Bucks will have their struggles, but I don't think the outlook is as bleak as first thought. The defensive end will keep them in a lot of games.

Despite a late surge in a comeback attempt from the Bearcats, OSU held on for the 64-56 victory over a very very good Cincinnati team. It was the opening game the Bearcats played in their new arena. Kaleb Wesson led the Buckeyes with 15 points, followed by CJ Jackson (13), Luther Muhammad (11) and Kyle Young with 10 points. Jarron Cumberland led all scorers for Cincy with 22 points.

Young was mister do-it-all for OSU in this one, and it looks like he'll be a lower scoring version of Jae'Sean Tate for the Buckeyes. The first ten minutes of the game were extremely low scoring for both teams. But, then the Buckeyes took over, holding the Bearcats to 14% shooting in the first half with their unbreakable defense. OSU rendered the Cincy offense almost useless for most of the game until the last 6 minutes or so, when they made their late surge. But, the Buckeyes had enough to hold on and claim a season opening victory.

Next up, Ohio State will have their home opener on Sunday when they host Fort Wayne out of the Summit Conference.

Playing against a very solid mid-major program on Sunday afternoon, the Buckeyes rolled to victory in their home opener over Purdue-Fort Wayne, 107-61. CJ Jackson led all scorers with a career high of 25 points. Freshman, Duane Washington Jr scored his career high of 20 points off the bench as well. Four total players went into double digit scoring for OSU. Fort Wayne was led by Kason Harrell and John Konchar with 13 points each.

For their next game, Ohio State will travel to Omaha on Thursday to take on Creighton.

Big road win for the Buckeyes(3-0)the announcers at the half on local radio said this is the first time in the history of the Creighton (2-1) basketball program has lost a home game this early in the season.

The Buckeyes blew a 12 point halftime lead and had to come from a point down to win this one.Leading the way was,senior transfer from Wake Forest Keyshawn Woods(19 points) Freshman Duane Washington Jr. had 12 points.

Ty-Shon Alexander had 16 points to lead Creighton.

OSU improved to 4-0 on the year with an 89-61 victory over South Carolina State, who dropped to 1-3. The Buckeyes had a balanced scoring attack with 5 players scoring in double digits. They were led by an 18 point effort from Kaleb Wesson, followed by 14 from Duane Washington. Damani Applewhite led South Carolina State with 15 points.

Next up, Ohio State will host Samford on Tuesday.

This young team is fun to watch! After years of watching guys like Amir Williams and Marc Loving, it's great to see the effort and enthusiasm of this team. Mohammed is quickly becoming one of my favorite players. He looks to be quite a leader for being a Freshmen. Very interested to see how this year plays out.

The first half wasn't pretty for OSU, but they pulled away in the second half to defeat Samford, 68-50. The Buckeyes move to 5-0, and for the Bulldogs, it was their first loss of the season, as they fall to 4-1.

Kaleb Wesson tied his career high with 19 points, followed by Keyshawn Woods with 14.

Myron Gordon led Samford with 18 points.

Next up, Ohio State will host Cleveland State on Friday at 8pm.

Big game against 'Cuse tomorrow night. I know they aren't ranked, but that would be a big win for this team.

Great start to the season. How good is this coach? Of course it helps to have a double dose of Wesson in the paint.

The improvement of Andre Wesson has been pretty astounding. I didn't expect he'd amount to much. Kind of disappointed in the lack of improvement by Jallow, but he's still a young guy, hopefully that comes.

For the first time this season, the Buckeyes have dropped a game, as they fell to Syracuse in the ACC/B1G Challenge in Columbus, 72-62. After the game, the Orange improved to 4-2, while OSU fell to 6-1. The Buckeyes struggled with the length of Syracuse all night, as the Orange were able to rotate long, athletic players in all night.

CJ Jackson led the Buckeyes in scoring with with 19 points. They also got solid performances from Kaleb Wesson (13 points, 8 rebounds) and Kyle Young (12 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals).

As Buckeye fans, you have to be excited about Kyle Young. The hustle he shows on every play is fantastic, and has really improved his offensive game.

Tyus Battle led Syracuse with 20 points.

Ohio State will try to get back on track against another strong team, as they open Big Ten play against Minnesota on Sunday.

'Cuse came into the game as a terrible shooting team, and hit shots all over the place. The Buckeyes went cold for too long a period of time. You have to hit the open shots against this 'Cuse defense, because you're not going to get many uncontested. With Frank Howard back, Syracuse will be back in the rankings before long. Biggest worry after this game for OSU is the injury to Luther Mohammed, hopefully it isn't serious and he misses little to no time.

Playing in their B1G opener today, the Buckeyes cruised past Minnesota in Columbus, 79-59. With the win, OSU improves to 7-1, and Minnesota drops to 6-2. Six different Buckeyes scored in double figures for the day, none better than Andre Wesson, who scored a career high 16. His brother Kaleb, dropped in 15 points. CJ Jackson and Musa Jallow each tallied 11 points, while Kyle Young and Duane Washington both scored 10.

Minnesota was led by Amir Coffey with a game high, 19 points.

Next up, Ohio State will play Illinois, not in Champaign, but at the United Center in Chicago on Wednesday.

Bucks should roll to 12-1 before the MSU game.
