Looking ahead a bit, it's starting to look like Ohio St. will come into Haas with a record of 9-0 and a possible Top 10 ranking. After knocking off then #18 Oklahoma on the road yesterday, the Buckeyes have climbed to #13 in the latest AP Poll:
And I think this is a good match up for us. OSU doesn't have much of a frontcourt, which has been our strength. Defense will be the key, to see if Boyd, Pierre, Lay, and Fu can slow Prahalis and Hill (ironically, IIRC we recruited both of them). With the benefit of home court advantage, this could really be a statement win for us if we live up to our potential. Boyd vs. Prahalis should be quite a show.
This could be a statement game for us. We lost against 2 highly regarded teams.. Texas on a neutral court and against Rutgers on their home court. We beat Virginia..and though they beat Tennessee I don't think they are as good as Texas or Rutgers. If we can get a win against Ohio st..this would be our best win yet!!
