Kent Bates-Diop, Ohio State stun No. 1 Michigan State


Ohio State closed out the week in Big Ten men's basketball action in a big way Sunday, defeating No. 1 Michigan State, 80-64. Rather than calling timeout, he let them play through the blaring cheers. Ward still had 10 rebounds, despite his poor offensive showing.

If the first portion of the schedule reflects the team the Buckeyes are in Big Ten play, they're in a good position; they will beat the teams they should beat and give Purdue a run for their money. Troy Lewis, Todd Mitchell and Everette Stephens were part of a special era in Boilermaker annals in the mid-1980s, leading the program to back-to-back Big Ten titles in 1987 and 1988. "They mixed it up in every way and made it hard".

Struggling on the road has been a theme with this team since I started covering them past year. "We've had a down couple years, obviously, but this is the start of what we - inside this locker room and inside this place - wanted to get to by the end of the season".

Ohio State's 80-64 rout of the visiting Spartans didn't merely highlight the remarkable job new coach Chris Holtmann has done developing the unheralded collection of players he inherited from Thad Matta this summer. "We did not move the ball very well, got very stagnant and very one-on-one which we haven't done all year". "[Michigan State] played hard, they played well, they're a good hockey team". Cassius Winston added 12 points and Jaren Jackson Jr. chipped in 11. I don't think right now we can rest on our laurels. The things we did in that game were kind of mental lapses.

Before the season, I commented that senior Jae'Sean Tate will be the imperative to the tournament birth of Ohio State; he's living up to that standard. The Jayhawks also lack a surefire National Basketball Association draft pick on their roster for the first time in awhile. It was great coaching by Coach Holtmann. "We were able to hold Nick to one shot, and that was the key to our win".

Kent Bates-Diop, Ohio State stun No. 1 Michigan State

Davidson 86, George Mason 59: Jon Axel Gudmundsson hit four 3-pointers and scored 24 points and the visiting Wildcats took control early for a win over the Patriots.

"Maybe I'm wrong on it but I thought, in this day and age, I think that was worthy of assault and battery". "I saw it the way I saw it and I said what I said and I deserved the technical, but I want my mother to know I didn't swear at him".

Ohio State was a much tougher battle than Michigan State expected to see on Sunday evening in Columbus, but it didn't help that the Spartans - the nation's top shooting team - finished with a measly 39 percent shooting rate from the floor. The Nittany Lions are one game back of Ohio State heading into next weekend's pair of games with the Buckeyes at the Pegula Family Ice Arena.

The previous best this season was Notre Dame, which shot 44.4 percent. The Spartans recorded double-digit wins for just the eighth time in school history - and the sixth time under Dantonio - after thrashing No. 18 Washington State in the San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl, 42-17, for their 10th win of the season.
