The buckeye basketball boys barely survived in Happy Valley yesterday. After building a halftime lead of 40-19, the bucks stalled in the second half, and allowed the 10-14 overall, and 1-10 in conference play Nittany Lions crawl back in the game. Ohio state is lucky to win after 90% free throw shooter Jamar Butler, and 75% foul shooter Ron Lewis, both missed foul shots giving Penn State a three as time expired to win the game. The buckeyes hopefully will take care of Minnesota and Penn state so the Wisconsin game on the 25th should determine the big ten champ. The buckeyes however, can't keep blowing these big leads. A twenty point lead against MSU earlier in the year also turned into a barn burner, where the bucks won by two. I think the bucks have plenty of individual talent to win it all, but they'll be lucky to get to the sweet sixteen if they play like they did last night. I also wanted some oppinions on what people thought of the technical on Oden. That shifted the whole game. after that tech, PSU went on a 22-5 run.
