Is anyone else concerned about wearing down ET? Playing the point and scoring and rebounding sounds like a tall order. This team has potential to be pretty good, but w/o a great inside game, they'll need their perimerter guys to be on their game. When March rolls around, I'd hate to see ET worn out. He needs to play Point Forward for parts of the game, but not all, imo.

Not really. As I recall, they played 3 OTs during a five or six game stretch last year during the final week of the Big 10 season and tournament, and ET average 43 minutes per game during that stretch. Deibler also went over 40 per, also, during that stretch. The upset of MSU in the tourney came at the end of that streak, and it'd be hard to argue that the tank had been drained.

you better worry about a much more experienced OSU team than your tar heels that played sloppy basketball against valpo.

besides that, that is one hell of a compliment for Turner from Matta, but Turner is one hell of a player.

Cant say it enough, Thad Matta is the man. He works his butt off and it pays off. Truly amazing what he is accomplishing at Ohio State. I wish players had to stay at least two years in college basketball. It would improve both the NBA and college basketball. It would also be fitting for all the hard work Matta and his staff put in to bring these kids to Ohio State.

Can Anyone Tell Me Why Coach Matta Starts John Diebler Over Walter Offutt? Offutt Is Way Better On Defense & He's Pretty Good At The Offensive Side As Well. It's Ridiculous How Good This Kid Is & He Sits The Bench Game After Game. What The He__ Is Matta Thinking?? Also, I Would Have A Heart Attack If David Lighty Could Make A 3 Point Basket... His Outside Shooting Is Horrible !!! Thank God He Play's Good Defense.. He's Another One That Can Sit The Bench At Times So That Offutt Could Play Alittle More.. Wake Up Coach Matta,, This Kid Can Play !!!!
