The Ohio State Buckeyes have dropped three in a row since starting the season 3-0. The most recent loss came against the Memphis Tigers in overtime on Friday. Now the team heads to the Big Ten/ACC Challenge with plenty of questions that need to be answered.
Things won’t get any easier for the Buckeyes on Tuesday when they face the 10th-ranked Virginia Cavaliers. Virginia’s been off since Wednesday, and marks Ohio State’s first game against a ranked opponent on the season.
A year after really making a name for itself on the defensive end, Virginia has been excelling at the offensive end of the court, shooting better than 51 percent from the field for the season and averaging 81 points per game while allowing only 58.3 points per game.
Seniors Malcolm Brogdon and Anthony Gill along with junior London Perrantes bring a lot of experience to the court, something Ohio State just doesn’t have, fielding seven freshmen, four sophomores, and a junior. Virginia has nine players averaging double figures in minutes.
Ohio State Buckeyes:
Ohio State’s 81-76 loss to Memphis was just the second time the Buckeyes have lost a game in which they scored at least 75 points since 2007 – scenario in which they had won 113 consecutive times. Junior Marc Loving leads the team in scoring with 16.6 points, and leads the team with 10 three-pointers made.
Freshman point guard JaQuan Lyle scored a team-best 18 points Friday, but only five of those points came in the second half and overtime. He leads the team with 31 assists, but also paces the squad with 18 turnovers.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ohio State +8
The Buckeyes still have something to offer, and as their young players gain experience, they’ll become a more formidable opponent. The Cavaliers will be a tough, early season test for Ohio State, but the tournament setting will help to keep the final score in this one in a manageable range.
