  • Ohio State Basketball Predicting The Finishing Stretch Of The Big Ten

The Ohio State University Department of Athletics is increasing salaries and benefits for the members of the football assistant coaching staff after a season in which the team won at least 12 games for the fifth time in six years while winning a Big Ten Conference championship and a Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic championship with a decisive victory over No. 8 USC.

Penn State buried the Buckeyes early with its red-hot shooting to take a 24-point lead into halftime, and the magic at Bryce Jordan Center carried the team the rest of the way.

The Ohio State-Penn State rivalry has come alive as of late. The Nittany Lions could pick up a much-needed third resume win on Sunday when they go on the road to face No. 6 Purdue.

Police say no active shooter at Highline College Friday morning
Kent Assistant Police Chief Rafael Padilla said authorities walked the entire Highline College campus and did not find anything. The first alert went out at 8:55 a.m., advising all "to lock down all offices and classrooms until further notice".

Ohio State has just two losses in league play this season - both at the hands of the Nittany Lions. You have to make Penn State work for open shots, lock up man-to-man, and force dribble-drives and look for help, rather than sagging back and allowing open threes. There's some actual NBA-type skill and it all starts with sophomore guard Tony Carr, who's second in the Big Ten in scoring at 19.2 points per game. Moreover, while in some situations this could be described as a trap game for the Buckeyes with a matchup at rival MI looming on the weekend, you can bet they'll be plenty fired up to avenge their only conference loss of the season.

Coach Pat Chambers sees a silver lining looking back at that rough stretch. Garner said. "I think the home court advantage, that atmosphere is what this school has been waiting for and it'll be great for a lot of fans to show up and support us". To get Nazeer (Bostick) those quality minutes. "As far as the game, I just thought we played really good basketball as far as defending and rebounding". He added five rebounds and three assists in the blowout.

Penn State: G Shep Garner (6-2, Sr., 10.2 ppg); G Tony Carr (6-5, Soph., 19.2 ppg); G Josh Reaves (6-4, Jr., 10.8 ppg); F Lamar Stevens (6-8, Soph., 15.5 ppg); F Mike Watkins (6-9, Soph., 12.9 ppg). Bates-Diop leads in rebounds with 9.0 while Jackton tops in assists with 4.2 per game.

Ohio State had their best run in the 2nd Half with 10:32 on the clock. "He's proven it over and over again, his value to our team on each possession".

Ohio State has been on a tear lately, and they've lost just one game since Christmas. He doesn't get rattled and it wouldn't be a surprise if he came up big in this matchup.
