After losing to Michigan State at home this past weekend, the Buckeyes dropped two spots to No. 16 in the latest AP Top 25.
After beating High Point, Ohio State dropped one spot to No .14 in the latest AP Top 25.
After their win over Bucknell, Ohio State remained at No. 15 in the latest AP Poll, their highest ranking of the season.

Chris Holtmann’s Buckeyes honoring Thad Matta during halftime of the Syracuse game last Wednesday night was such an awesome (and well deserved) move. Kudos to all involved.
Everything about the basketball Buckeyes’ Throwback Night at St. John Arena last Friday night was so well done.
Projected to finish in the bottom half of the Big Ten (again), Chris Holtmann’s Buckeyes are ranked No. 23 in this week’s AP Poll.
Two games into the season, the young Bucks have already shown plenty of promise under Chris Holtmann.
It’s not even college basketball season and Chris Holtmann and the Buckeyes continue to win. They locked up their third top-50 commitment in the 2019 class when four-star power forward E.J. Liddell committed to Ohio State Monday night.
Only 14 years old and already 6-foot-6, Akron Buchtel hoops prodigy Chris Livingston has received an offer from the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Keyshawn Woods isn’t a well-known name in college basketball, but he’s the kind of player that the Buckeyes really needed heading into the 2018-19 season.
Keeping the top talent in Ohio is vitally important for Ohio State’s success on the hardwood. Getting a commitment from the top-rated in-state player in 2019 is a great start. Now Chris Holtmann and company just need to keep the momentum going.
Even though he will have to sit out the 2018-19 season due to transfer rules, Walker still has two years of eligibility remaining. With starting point guard C.J. Jackson entering his fourth and final year of eligibility next winter, Walker will have a chance to take over the starting point guard role when he becomes eligible in 2019-20. For what it’s worth, incoming freshman Luther Muhammad and Duane Washington could possibly be competing for the starting point guard spot as well.
They were able to work it out this season, but Ohio State is missing virtually an entire senior class next winter due to recruiting failures at the end of Thad Matta’s time with the Buckeyes.
Ohio State’s seniors could have easily given up on their final season in Columbus, one that was supposed to be a rebuilding year following Thad Matta’s departure, but they did the complete opposite. For that, Buckeye Nation should be forever grateful.
Tied at 70, Kam Williams’ and-one three-pointer was the biggest shot of the season for Ohio State and was just what the Buckeyes needed to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
It may have been ugly at times and Ohio State took to many three-pointers, but they got the win, and that’s all that matters in March. The Buckeyes will now take on No. 4 seed Gonzaga on Saturday, a rematch from earlier in the season.
Ohio State has already delivered an unforgettable season. They now look to continue this remarkable journey into the NCAA Tournament.
Although the Ohio State Buckeyes made the NCAA Tournament, it’s hard not to think “what if” if so many players didn’t transfer from the program during Thad Matta’s last couple years with the program. Among those transfers, four have also made the Big Dance.
