Ohio State Basketball vs. Illinois: Preview and prediction

Ohio State Basketball vs. Illinois: Preview and prediction

OSU's bid to win the conference will receive its steepest test yet Wednesday with a visit to No. 3 Purdue, which has not lost a game since November and not lost at all in the Big Ten. "No. 3 in the country in turnover percentage, No. 8 in the country in offensive rebounding percentage". "We can show video and do some things in practice but until you get in it, it's challenging". We kind of fell apart a little late in a couple matches.it looked like the nerves got to us a little bit in a couple of those matches.

With Jason Nolf (knee) out at least for the dual-meet season, Ohio State's Micah Jordan took down Penn State's Bo Pipher 11 times and his tech fall gave the Buckeyes that 10-point lead at the break.

Should No. 17 Ohio State have any trouble at home when the Buckeyes play host to IL today at Noon ET?

February could be challenging.

The Illini have played themselves out of multiple wins this season - see Northwestern, Maryland and Minnesota losses.

"They're clearly a team that can reach a Final Four and win a national championship", OSU coach Chris Holtmann said of Purdue. Holtmann doesn't think that's a problem with this team. Winning the Big Ten first is another matter. The OSU size and defense was too much for the Hoosiers to handle as they held IN to just 36.4 percent shooting IN the game while out-rebounding them 39-26. They really needed this game if they wanted any hope at making a run to the NCAA tournament. "That's not to say you can still be ready and lose the game because they present a lot of problems". Keita Bates-Diop is leading Ohio State with 19.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per contest while Jae'Sean Tate is adding 12.9 points and 6 rebounds per game. "We just weren't able to create much today". "We prepare for them like they're at the top of the Big Ten". The Buckeyes have won the doubles point in all three matches this year, including capturing it against United Kingdom with victories of 6-2 and 6-1 at three and one, respectively.

"Being at Rec Hall, with everyone right on top, it's even better than the BJC match", he said. We quit passing the ball, and we start dribbling it. The Illini played a very solid overall team game, with all five starters finishing in double figures. He attacked Tomasello with aggressive shots and took an 8-7 lead after a first period that saw him score three takedowns.

Mark Alstork paced IL (12-12, 2-9) with 19 points and freshman Trent Frazier added 12 - all after halftime. He has scored in double figures in 12 of the last 13 games.

"It was just fun to have everyone cheer", he said after the Nittany Lions' 19-18 win Saturday night. "It's about shooters and passers, to be quite honest".

Before Saturday night, both Penn State and Ohio State had claims to No. 1 in the multiple ranking systems.
