OSU has the quietest fans ever for a basketball game. They didn't make any noise until they were down by 9 pts. in the second half. This was a good win, and it will force this team to play hard the rest of the year no matter who the competition is. Sullinger will get Freshman of the week again with his 40 points. It's hard to believe that no freshman has scored more than 30 since Michael Redd did it many moons ago. Buford missed some easy layups and opened shots. He is thinking too much.

Good win Buckeyes against a hot shooting well-coached underrated team.The Bucks were not sharp but they played hard for forty minutes and pulled out a tough win. Sullinger was dominant in the paint,Diebler hit some key 3's and Craft played a great floor game with some terrific assists. Excellent team defense during the last 10 minutes of the game saved the day.Only wish Coach Matta would use his bench more.Bench experience under pressure game conditions might be helpful later in the season in addition to giving the starters some rest. Great start to the season.Keep up the good work. GO BUCKS!!!!!

The big kid showed what he can do when his team's back is against the wall. He has a great leadership traits, as he always seems to portray a fierce but positive warrior-ship personality rubbing off on all the Buckeye players. Too often, star players' show negative egotistic attitudes toward thier fellow teammates. This isn't the case with Jared Sullinger; this is the sign of a True Champion.
The weakness I feel about this team though is that they may not be using a power forward that could alleviate, and also open more easy buckets for Jared once they meet up with the bigger teams. In other words, if they have a power forward on the bench, they should be grooming him against these "little-sister" opponents.
Good luck Buckeyes.
