Do you think any of OSU core players leave after this year? Be nice to bring the same team back next year, with 2 good freshman coming in. Plus 2014 class looks like it could be epic.

I think he's getting tired. He goes all out on D against the best offensive player the other team has. It's no coincidence he seems to consistently fade down the stretch.

Yea I can see that, thats when we should go to thomas anyways.

Why the fuck are we talking about Matta being fired? What a retarded discussion, OSU basketball has never seen success like this. Its more likely that Ohio State wants to lock him up on a 10 year extension. How do people think Ross' game will translate to the pros?

He needs another year then we can discuss that. If he declares now, he will be playing in the D-League.

Ross needs to improve his ball handling and learn how to play something that resembles defense. However, with his physical tools and scoring ability, he has NBA ability. I'd say he's the best NBA prospect on OSU's roster.

I knew all that Cody Zeller top 5 pick pre-season shit was nonsense. What a stiff. God I hate white American bigs.

PG or just sit on the bench and wave your towel.

I thought Ron Lewis would make it somewhere in the NBA with his ability to shoot the rock, but it hasn't turned out too well for him.

Ross' game needs to improve, on both ends. Being just a shooter isn't going to earn him a roster spot in my opinion.

Why do you think? Corey trolling us as always. Well at least I hope he's trolling.

Ron Lewis was also a lot smaller and not nearly as good of a scorer. Ross clearly has an NBA body along with a position (SF), and that's half the battle.

I don't understand how Indiana can look so lost against Syracuse's zone when they had a week to prepare.

I had Syracuse winning this game because I thought their zone along with their personnel created some problems for Indiana, but there's no excuse for looking lost.

I'm not sure whether is a lack of execution or a lack of preparation, but this has just been a dreadful performance.
