Ohio State Buckeyes
When Michigan State beat Purdue last weekend, Ohio State got a huge upper hand in the race toward the Big Ten regular season title.
The Buckeyes will still in the conference if they manage to win out but that might be what OSU has to do after dropping its second game of the season to Penn State.
Both of Ohio State’s conference losses have been to the Nittany Lions — a bubble team only because of those two resume-boosting wins. The first game was close but the second was not. PSU beat the Buckeyes by more than 20 points on its home court.
There is this game and then another roadie in Bloomington against the Hoosiers, with a home game against Rutgers in between. If the Buckeyes want to hold onto their position, we’ll see their best in this game.
But Michigan would love nothing more than to stick it to its rivals while improving its own position in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
The Wolverines have won four out of their last five games and are in line to be a middling seed in the Big Dance. It isn’t impossible to imagine the Wolverines on the five or the six line if they win this game and finish the regular season strong.
Moritz Wagner is a averaging 17 points per game over his last four, including two 20-point games. He’s shooting 40 percent from three while grabbing over seven boards a game.
Duncan Robinson will likely spend some time on the leading candidate for Big Ten Player of the Year, Keita Bates-Diop. With an individual defender who can do some work on Bates-Diop, one-on-one, Michigan has an angle to win this game.
