B10 basketball is absolutely loaded this year.  It's probably top to bottom the deepest league.  It's going to be a great season.  tOSU, Purdue, Mich, and Mich St can play with anyone in the country.

On a basketball related note: The basketball Bucks faced North Carolina at the Garden in NYC tonight. 

UNC (ranked #4) showed why they are one of the top teams in the nation.  They got off to a quick start and dominated the Buckeyes for most of the game.  But OSU rallied late to narrow the UNC victory to 77-73.

Ohio State Loses Turner In 111-60 Win
Evan Turner did not return after injuring himself on a dunk attempt as No. 15 Ohio State took care of Eastern Michigan.
ESPN video of Turner's injury at "Turner out 2 months with spine fractures".

Scary looking injury for Evan Turner.  He'll be out for at least eight weeks.  Big blow to the team.  And unfortunately too similar to Lightly's season-ending injury last year.  Lightly got injured in game 7 last year.  Turner got injured in game 8 this year.

OSU men's basketball: Turner's recovery expected
Monday,  December 7, 2009 - 2:54 AM
By Bob Baptist, The Columbus Dispatch


Evan Turner is "down but not out" and should be able to play again at the level he was if he has a normal recovery from the lower back fracture he suffered Saturday, said Vince O'Brien, athletic trainer for the Ohio State men's basketball team.  Turner suffered a transverse process fracture of his second and third lumbar vertebrae when his hands slipped off the rim after a missed dunk and he fell flat on his back from about 7 feet in the air.  O'Brien said Turner has some pain and is taking medication for it but is able to walk and has no limitations on his normal everyday routine.  He has a brace available to wear as needed for comfort, but he is not required to wear it more than that.

O'Brien said Saturday that the prognosis for recovery is eight weeks, which is Jan. 30.  In that case, Turner would miss 13 games, starting with one at No. 23 Butler on Saturday.  He would miss eight Big Ten games, five on the road.  Turner was averaging a team-best 20.6 points, 12.7 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game for the No. 15 Buckeyes and was being touted as an early front-runner for national player of the year and a top-five NBA draft pick in 2010.

Ohio State 70, No. 6 Purdue 66
Men's basketball: Turner leads Ohio State to upset at Purdue


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Evan Turner scored 23 of his 32 points in the second half to rally the Ohio State men's basketball team from a 13-point second-half deficit to stun No. 6 Purdue 70-66 tonight in Mackey Arena.  Turner had the last word in a terrific duel with Purdue's Robbie Hummel, who scored 35 points, 29 in the first half, when he made eight three-point field goals.  The Buckeyes (12-5 overall, 2-3 Big Ten) had lost three games on the road in their first five conference games.

By the way.  It was great to see that Turner recovered from that horrific back injury.

OSU Basketball: The 1960 Championship Team - 50 Years Later

This year is the 50th anniversary of Ohio State's only NCAA Championship basketball team.  All five starters -- Jerry Lucas, John Havlicek, Mike Nowell, Larry Siegfried and Joe Roberts -- played in the NBA.  Lucas and Havlicek are Hall of Famers.  Even one of the team's bench players, Bob Knight, recame famous (and infamous) later while coaching Indiana to three NCAA titles and going on to coach the most Division I men's victories.

Expectations were high for 1959-60 because of a sophomore class led by phenom 6-foot-8 center Jerry Lucas from Middletown.  He was joined by a stellar recruiting class that included Havlicek, Nowell, Knight and Gary Gearhart.  Freshmen weren't eligible to play varsity, but the freshmen showed a glimpse of the future when they beat the upperclassmen during scrimmages.

The Buckeyes were loaded with offensive talent and averaged more than 90 points that season in an era that didn't have a three-point line or shot clock.  All five starters averaged in double figures, led by Lucas' 26.3 points (on .637 shooting from the field, which remains an OSU record).

The Buckeyes lost only three regular-season games, at Utah and Kentucky, and at Indiana after they'd clinched the Big Ten championship.  They had a first-round bye before playing Western Kentucky in the Mideast Regional semifinals in Louisville.  The Hilltoppers led 43-37 at halftime before Ohio State dominated the second half for a 98-79 victory.  The Buckeyes then beat Georgia Tech by 17 points to advance to the Final Four in San Francisco.

Before leaving for California, Havlicek cut the fingers on his shooting hand on a paper-towel dispenser in his dorm bathroom, requiring 10 stitches.  Even with Havlicek hampered, Ohio State handled New York University 76-54 in a national semifinal at the Cow Palace.  In the final against defending champion California in front of a partisan Bears crowd, the Buckeyes were considered the underdog.  However, the game was essentially over at halftime.  The Buckeyes led 37-19 and coasted to a 75-55 victory in front of a stunned crowd.

This same team of Buckeyes advanced to the NCAA title game the next two seasons as well.  Only to lose both times to Cincinnati.  UC spoiled an undefeated season in 1961 with an overtime victory.  And Ohio State lost again in 1962 after Lucas suffered a knee injury in the semifinal.  Lucas played against UC but made only 5 of 17 shots in a 71-59 loss.

This weekend, the group has returned to Columbus from around the country to celebrate the golden anniversary of their championship.  This afternoon, they were introduced at halftime of the OSU-Minnesota game in Value City Arena. 

The Dispatch ran a series of articles the 1960 Championship Team.  Here are the links to those articles:

Reunited: Being part of Ohio State's only national championship team in men's basketball left an indelible print on the lives of players and coaches alike

Bob Hunter commentary: 50 years after title, coach deserves recognition, too

1960 champions: 50 years later

Four players score in double figures to help OSU clinch at least a share of Big Ten championship


Ohio State (24-7, 14-4; AP 7th) won 13 of its last 14 conference games after a 1-3 start.  The Buckeyes also clinched the No. 1 seed in the Big Ten tournament next week in Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.  Their first game will be at noon March 12 against the winner of the previous day's first-round game between the No. 8 and 9 seeds.  Those teams will be determined after the conference season ends Sunday.

MEN'S BASKETBALL
Evan Turner named Big-Ten Player of the Year
Thad Matta named Big-Ten Coach of the Year


Evan Turner, who led Ohio State to a share of its third Big Ten championship in five years, was the consensus choice of coaches and the media as the Big Ten player of the year.  Turner led the Big Ten in scoring (20.1 points per game), rebounding (8.3) and steals (2.0) and finished second in assists (5.9) in conference play. 

Turner is the only player to finish in the top two in scoring, rebounds and assists since assists became an official statistic in 1983.  After he returned from a back injury, the Buckeyes won 13 of their last 14 Big Ten games and are the No.1 seed in the conference tournament that starts Thursday in Indianapolis.

Ohio State coach Thad Matta was voted coach of the year by the media.  Matt Painter of Purdue received the nod from his fellow coaches.  Ohio State and Purdue shared the regular-season title with Michigan State.   Matta also won the award in 2006 and 2007.  He has been voted coach of the year five times in 10 years as a coach in three conferences.

OSU had one great conference tourney.  First, the nailbiter win over Michigan.  Then, the 2OT win over Illinois.  And finally today's 29 point blowout win over Minnesota.

OSU ended up making the NCAA tournament as a #2 seed.  They will play the #15 seed UC Santa Barbara on Friday at Milwaukee.

I think they got jobbed by being placed in the ultra-competitive Midwest region, but I still like their chances to get to the Final Four.  Would have rather seen them in either region with Duke or Syracuse.  Oh well...

I'll honestly admit I've got a bad feeling about the NCAAs ... we've just been so charmed for so long.  In the tournament, if we get ourselves into situations like we faced with Michigan and Illinois, well, if Turner's buzzer-beater hadn't fallen against Michigan, we'd never have seen the 2OT win vs. Illinois or the walkover of Minnesota; we'd be talking about how we blew a 14-point lead and lost to an unranked team on the eve of the tournament.  That magic may abandon us at an inconvenient time in the tournament.  The Michigan and Illinois games were great for highlights--but I'd feel better if the margins of victory had been just a little bit wider.

Who said LSD doesn't impact perception?  Just Joshin' C-Dawg!

That being said whats up with the Midwest Bracket?  Clevelander17 pointed it out already but after we pummel UCSB, we get Ga Tech or Ok St. (Ga Tech will beat Ok St. I don't care if its a 10 seed vs 7 seed) and then either G-Town (which will SMACK Ohio, sorry C-Dawg,) or Tenn (which had some STELLAR RPI victories this year...) after which point, Kansas.  Thats whack, the NCAA always drops the soap in front of the ACC re: Duke.  I hope we get to the finals against Duke and molly-whop them. 

Note: Since my dad is a Georgetown Alum I would love a match-up with them.  Does anyone else recall when Oden went airborne over Green??  I do, if he would have made that dunk I would have been stupified to this day.

Men's basketball: OSU puts away Georgia Tech

MILWAUKEE -- Georgia Tech lost track of the Ohio State men's basketball team in transition in the second half and the Buckeyes made Tech pay, connecting on six three-point baskets to pull away for a 75-66 victory today in the second round of the NCAA Midwest regional in the Bradley Center.

Jon Diebler had four three-pointers and a three-point play as the Buckeyes' increased a two-point halftime lead to 15 with 4:56 left.  The Buckeyes had to survive a last-ditch run by Tech, which cut its deficit to 65-61 with 1:47 left.   

Turner scored 24 points to lead Ohio State (29-7), the No.2 seed in the region.  Diebler added 20 points and David Lighty 18 for the Buckeyes, who will play #6 seed Tennessee in a regional semifinal Friday night in St. Louis.

D'oh!  Now you've gone and jinxed us! :-P

Tennessee is a solid team, too; they're 27-8 coming out of a tough league.

It's also a shame that if we win and MSU wins against Northern Iowa, we're going to have to play each other to get to the Final Four rather than playing each other *at* the Final Four.
