It’s the Buckeye Leafcast, b-ball style! Normally reserved for football talk, me and the Intergalactic Buckeye Fan, Chris Stefanick, are joined by special guest (and TTUN fan) Brandon Richey! We wax poetic on the firing of Thad Matta, whether it was justified or not and is new coach Chris...

Newly hired Ohio State men’s basketball coach Chris Holtmann wanted to make one thing clear during the official press conference held at the Schottenstein Center on Monday that introduced him as the new head coach: he will be putting an emphasis on getting back to recruiting the state of...

On Wednesday afternoon, Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith put to rest some of the rumors that have been swirling around the latter half of this season about head coach Thad Matta’s return for next year and put his official stamp of approval on Matta coming back next year....

If the Ohio State men’s basketball season were to start today, the starting lineup would look like this: PG – JaQuan Lyle (sophomore); SG – Kam Williams (fourth-year junior); SF – Jae’Sean Tate (junior); SF – Marc Loving (senior); PF – Keita Bates-Diop (junior). Not a bad starting lineup....

If starting both halves of their second round matchup of Sunday’s National Invitation Tournament game against the No. 2 seeded Florida Gators on the wrong end of 14-2 runs was any indication that 3rd-seeded Ohio State would have serious problems in winning the game, then you would be right....

The No. 3-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes survived a scare from sixth-seeded Akron in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament on Tuesday night and did just enough in overtime to stave off the Zips in Value City Arena, 72-63. Ohio State head coach Thad Matta said his guys...

Instead of dancing at the prom, this year’s Ohio State men’s basketball team is going to spring homecoming when they were picked as part of the 32-team field for the National Invitation Tournament. Since the modern era of the 64-team bracket, the selection committee has never shut out a...

The Big Ten Conference announced the lineup for the 2016 tournament bracket on Sunday and drawing the No. 1 seed is tenth-ranked Indiana (25-6, 15-3 Big Ten) with the second-ranked team in the country, Michigan State (26-5, 13-5), drawing the No. 2 seed. After finishing smack dab in the...

Coming into Tuesday night’s game against Michigan State, Ohio State desperately needed a win worse than ever if they wanted to beef up their resume for the NCAA Tournament. They got a solid victory one week ago against Michigan when they handled the Wolverines for virtually the entire game,...

Maybe it was the fact that Evan Turner was being honored at halftime of Ohio State’s game against Michigan on Tuesday night that helped the Buckeyes get a sorely needed win to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive. Maybe it was the magic they showed on the jumbotron that...

The last time Northwestern beat Ohio State in Columbus, Elvis was still alive and John Madden’s Oakland Raiders were fresh off of an NFL crowning win when they beat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI. It was almost 39 years to the day when the Wildcats walked out...

Revenge is a dish best served cold. After getting embarrassed by Maryland earlier in the season when they suffered the worst loss of Thad Matta’s career, Ohio State was looking to avenge their 35-point spanking when they welcomed in the Terrapins to the Schottenstein Center on Sunday afternoon in...

It was another nail biter between Ohio State and Illinois on Thursday night but unlike the first showdown, in which the Buckeyes escaped a full-court buzzer-beating shot that would have given the Illini a one-point win in regulation, this one had to be settled in extra innings. In the...

First half, second half. Up, down. The roller coaster ride continued for the basketball Buckeyes and once again it was a tale of two halves for Ohio State, this time coming against Rutgers in Value City Arena on Wednesday night, putting together a second half where they outscored the...
