Surprising Ohio State faces IL next

Leron Black

While the Illini still play three ranked opponents this year in Ohio State, Michigan State and Purdue, the odds of them upsetting any of the trio seem extremely unlikely given their level of play thus far.

Ohio State trailed Big Ten leader Purdue by one game before Purdue's game against Rutgers on Saturday. Their best chance of taking down any of the three would be tomorrow against the Buckeyes, whom they will have to hope is already looking ahead to their matchup with the Boilermakers on Wednesday.

Coming up on Sunday from Value City Arena, the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Ohio State Buckeyes will be meeting up in college basketball action. They fell just short, but fans clearly see the potential in this team. "No. 3 in the country in turnover percentage, No. 8 in the country in offensive rebounding percentage".

Penn State's wrestlers edged Ohio State 19-18 on Saturday night to clinch a share of the Big Ten Conference dual-meet championship.

Ohio State: The Big Ten bottom feeder gave the Buckeyes a scare.

February could be challenging. Holtmann doesn't think that's a problem with this team. They edged IN 73-71 and then routed Rutgers 91-60 at home on Tuesday for their first two Big Ten victories. 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 told me that they need me to be free and play and be who I am and so I wanted to go out there and show them that I was listening". "I feel for our guys".

"They wrestled very well in the second half". With more than a dozen friends and family on hand, the OH native knew this was his last chance to play in his home state and the senior came to play scoring a season high 19 points on 6-for-11 shooting but an 11-minute, 31 second first half scoring drought ultimately proved to be too much to overcome. "We're going to have to just be a little bit better until Kam returns".

Tomasello held onto the big lead through the third period, rolling to a 21-12 major, but a late escape and near-reversal in the final seconds kept the Rec Hall crowd on its feet.

Bates-Diop scored a career-high 35 points to help OSU beat IL, but Holtmann said everyone on the roster will have to help make up for Williams.

"Listen, this is special what this group is doing right now". "They're just built and put together that well, and they play that well together. Illinois' defense is incredible in terms of how much they can take you out of stuff".

Junior Bo Nickal (Allen, Texas), ranked No. 1 at 184, dominated No. 2 Myles Martin, controlling the bout from start to finish as he rolled to a 10-2 major decision with 2:07 in riding time.

Mark Alstork paced IL (12-12, 2-9) with 19 points and freshman Trent Frazier added 12 - all after halftime.
