Ohio State Falls To The Spartans 86-77

The Ohio State basketball team fell to the 8th ranked Michigan State Spartans this afternoon 86-77. The Buckeyes were always in it and lead numerous times, but were not able to come out on top at the end. The Ohio State defense was more than exceptional and the offense looked great at times. The Spartans proved to be as good as advertised being lead by Cassius Winston and Nick Ward. The battle between coach Chris Holtmann and Tom Izzo was a great one all the way through.

1st Half
Kaleb Wesson was the focal point of Ohio State’s offense and he would finish the 1st half with 18 points affecting the game in a monumental way. Ohio State played well early moving the ball and consistently getting solid looks at the rim. They would go through a dry spell, but battled through it and managed to never fall behind too much. The Bucks would go on a 10-0 run to pull ahead and also managed to end the half with numerous big plays. Duane Washington hit a big corner three off of a steal with some incredible hustle from every Buckeye on the floor. That was huge for Ohio State’s momentum along with a three from Kaleb Wesson to end the half with the Bucks leading 43-36.

2nd Half
The Bucks extended the lead quickly to 9 points to start the 2nd half, but Michigan State did go on a solid 10-0 run soon after and would take a lead themselves. Wesson would however pick up his fourth foul with 9:00 minutes to go forcing him to go to the bench while also putting the Spartans in the bonus. Coach Holtmann would preach making the Spartan bigs work for the ball and communicating more on defense. Kyle Young would force a turnover on that very next possession and also throw down a monster put-back slam to tie the game soon after. The Wessons made huge plays with Andre hitting a three and Kaleb taking a risky charge down at the other end. Nick Ward and Xavier Tillman continued to attack down low for Michigan State and scored consistently down the stretch. C.J. Jackson also seemed to be kept on the bench late with some sort of injury. This allowed Keyshawn Woods to run the offense as the point guard, but C.J. would return with a few minutes left and seemed to be fine. The Bucks would fall down 77-72 and Kaleb Wesson would foul out then with 1:52 to go in the game. Andre Wesson would then foul out just 61 seconds later and the Bucks wouldn’t be able to surmount a comeback. They would lose 86-77 and moved to 12-2 on the year.

    Kaleb Wesson: 25 points, 8 rebounds
    Luther Muhammad: 12 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds
    C.J. Jackson: 10 points, 5 assists, 6 rebounds, 4 steals
    Cassius Winston: 24 points, 5 assists, 2 rebounds
    Nick Ward: 21 points, 7 rebounds, 3 blocks

    33 3PT FG%
    36 Rebounds
    14 Assists

The Buckeyes were truly tested today and weren’t quite able to come out on top despite their incredible effort. The Bucks were in foul trouble constantly and weren’t able to be as aggressive and comfortable they would have liked. The game is certainly going to be a teaching point for Holtmann’s squad and they will be able to use it moving forward. They will go on the road next to take on Rutgers this Wednesday at 7:00.
