Don’t look now, but at 21-5 (12-1), the Ohio State Buckeyes are officially in first place in the Big Ten. Thanks to a Keita Bates-Diop’ tip in with 2.8 seconds left, the Buckeyes secured their biggest win of the season Wednesday night.
Even though it was against two opponents that Ohio State should have easily beaten, getting the first-game jitters out of the way for both the new coaching staff and seven newcomers was important for the Buckeyes. Ohio State began a perfect 2-0 during the first weekend of college basketball after beating Robert Morris and Radford.
In just one month, Chris Holtmann and company at the Ohio State University have assembled the top recruiting class in the Big Ten in 2017 for the Buckeyes.
