That was a really good half of basketball. Both of these teams are legit.

This is so fucking fun.

The anticipation of March is killing me, as are my own expectations for how far this team CAN go.

Setting myself up for disappointment, but we deserve a worthwhile March Madness season.

Yeah. This is really high quality basketball.

This team has been a blast to watch.

Folded down the stretch. Poor rotations, no energy, most likely fatigued at the end, and one killer turnover that led to an And1. Let's see if they learn from the mistakes and be ready come Madness.

They had a lot of strength inside. Tough loss but a great game between great teams. Too bad we didn’t get football game.

Yeah, really pooped ourselves down the stretch but clearly we can hang with what may be the best or second best team.

Feel like this Buckeyes team is an enigma in March. Could lose in the sweet 16, could make the championship game.

Yikes. There goes the 1 seed in all likelihood.

You can’t go the final 4:30 without a FG and expect to win. Offense looked clunky all night. Real sloppy game

Washington taking William Buford style iso sets was gross.

Perhaps they needed that clunker to learn from it, but that was painful.

One can hope. I think it should benefit them to be more hungry come tournament time, but who knows with this team. Holtmann is getting this team to overachieve with no real star.

Yikes. There goes the 1 seed in all likelihood.

ESPN and CBS both updated their bracketology's this morning and the Buckeyes are still the fourth 1 seed. Obviously, that speaks more about the lack of viable options to put over them at the moment.

That was a game Ohio State should've won. Can't put everything on the officials but Sparty 100% had some home cooking in this game. That 3 pointer Washington hit but was waived off as a shot clock violation, reviewed and inexplicably still ruled no good, ended up being the difference. It's almost like the Big Ten is trying their ass off to get Michigan State into the tournament.

They missed Kyle Young big time. Ahrens and Jallow played 52 combined minutes and attempted 1 shot and had 0 points. They were basically playing 3 on 5 on the offensive end with those two being complete non factors. It's almost hilarious they should've won that game despite that fact.

I mean that game was laughably officiated

But yeah one seed is out the window. Though I suppose they could back into it, the final stretch of the season has been rough and they need to find some wins.

Not really seeing how the chance at a one seed is officially dead. Unless, of course, you believe they're dropping their next two against Iowa and Illinois (sans Dosunmu) at home. Both those games serve as resume boosters.
