Ohio State Buckeyes
Sam Thompson reached back with his right hand, snared the slightly off-target pass and dunked it in one forceful motion, providing Ohio State with its grandest slam. And far from the only one.
Even though Ohio State hasn’t fared all that well in Dayton since he’s been the head coach — never made it through the opening weekend of the NCAA tournament intact — it’s still the place for his fondest college basketball memory.
Let’s take a look at the floor and ceiling for each Big Ten contender as the regular season nears an end.
The 2012-13 college basketball season has been even better than most for the Big Ten. This is the year that the Big Ten is talented, powerful and deep.
Tim Hardaway Jr. kept Michigan in the game when the Wolverines weren’t playing a whole lot of defense. Then he ended it by smothering Ohio State’s final chance of overtime.
Deshaun Thomas scored 25 points, including 10 during a game-breaking 15-0 second-half run, to lead No. 11 Ohio State past Wisconsin 58-49 on Tuesday night.
Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee was born in 1944, but that didn’t stop good ol’ Gee from heading to the Twitter world to express his excitement for Monday night’s Ohio State- Wisconsin game at the Jerome Schottenstein Center in Ohio.
The Fighting Illini are an imperfect basketball team.
The only thing Urban Meyer lost during his first season at Ohio State was his cool — at the end of the last game. Carlos Hyde ran for 146 yards and the fourth-ranked Buckeyes’ defense shut out No. 20 Michigan in the second half to grab a bruising 26-21 win on Saturday, completing an improbable 12-0 season for the Buckeyes.
Carlos Hyde rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns and Braxton Miller passed for two scores and ran for another to lead No. 6 Ohio State past Illinois 52-22 on Saturday.
Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller was hurt late in the third quarter of the seventh-ranked Buckeyes’ victory over Purdue on Saturday.
Sure, Terrelle Pryor and Jim Tressel caused the mess, but Smith’s careless decision to play in the Gator Bowl last year likely cost Ohio State a chance at the National Championship this season.
Indiana is back on top of the college basketball world. At least to start the season.
Notre Dame’s 50-10 routing of Navy in Dublin, Ireland helped propel the Fighting Irish to No. 22 in the newest AP poll.
Predictions for every Big Ten team, including overall record, conference record and bowl game projection.
There’s no denying the rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan.
While Big Ten training camps are underway, Adam Hoge will devote an entire day to each of the 12 teams in the conference.
Beckman confirmed Thursday that he had eight coaches camped out at a State College restaurant outside the Penn State campus Wednesday.
Let’s just say A.J. Hawk got a little too excited during a game of touch football.
