Ohio State basketball stuns highest ranked Duke

The Ohio State basketball team kept the game much closer than some thought. Although only 3 points behind, they still have to face the noble task of facing the number one team in the country Duke. Seems early is not good either.

The Buckeyes had nine goals in the first half and only three out of ten shots from the penalty spot in that half. While conversion rates were better in the second half, missed free throws still made up a monstrous proportion from the touchline, accounting for 50% of the game. If they had only played better from attack, the Buckeyes could have won more.

No problem. Ohio State takes care of business and makes the bad happen, beating Duke 71-66. The Buckeyes are once again led by their best player EJ Liddell got 14 points and 14 rebounds and hit some big shots in this game. He also added 6 assists.

Zed . key also had his best match as a Buckeye. He finished with 20 points in the 8-15 shooting game. Duke simply couldn’t stop him in a low position. He was a substitute for Ohio State in the second half and he brought them through.

Cedric Russell also huge for the Buckeyes this time around. He came on from the bench to score 12 points, including 3/3 from behind the arc. He also made thrilling free throws late in the game. Russell has certainly earned more playing time after this match.

This is a big win for the Ohio State basketball program. They ended this match with a score of 14-0 and knocked out the number one team in the country. Chris Holtmann needs a win like this to get his team on track. He did so while also missing three alternates.

It will be interesting to see how this team carries out this victory over their next matches. The ceiling for this group has just changed.
