Thad Motta has been one of the best coaches recently in Big Ten Tournament play and right now his team is in desperate need of a win or two here.
Ohio State certainly sits on the bubble as they get set to take on Penn State, a team that has caused a lot of fits in the Big 10 this season.
Ohio State took the lone meeting this year in a 66-46 victory, but that doesn’t indicate how dangerous this Penn State team is.
Penn State Nittany Lions
The Nittany Lions bad conference record really has put a damper on them being a bubble team. Just 7-11 in conference play and finishing in the bottom tier of the conference, Penn State will now need an epic run to secure a title.
Penn State does have some solid wins under their resume though which won’t do anything with the committee, but will give them that confidence.
The Nittany Lions have wins over Indiana and Iowa to their credit, which means they’ve shown they do have the ability to take top teams down in the Big 10.
In their matchup against Ohio State, they shot just 33.3% and really never got their feet underneath them as they took bad shots and turned the ball over.
Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State is the most confusing bubble team right now.
The Buckeyes have wins over Kentucky and Iowa on their resume that should be enough to get them in, but a loss to Penn State here early in the Big 10 tournament could really hurt their resume.
Ohio State also has some bad losses in Texas Arlington, Louisiana Tech, and Memphis in out of conference games. It makes things interesting as they do have more bad losses than good ones.
Regardless this team did finish the season winning 5 of 7 which includes a win over Iowa.
Ohio State has gone 19-2 as the higher seed in Big 10 tourney play under Thad Matta.
