Ohio State Buckeyes
It has been tough for the Buckeyes for the past few weeks as they lost three straight games. These were against the West Virginia Mountaineers, Wisconsin Badgers and the latest was against Maryland Terrapins. In their last game, Kaleb Wesson had 15 points, nine rebounds and three assists while his brother Andre Wesson had 14 points, five rebounds and two steals.
DJ Carton also had 14 points but other than that, there is not much production from other players. Ohio State Buckeyes need the rest of the roster to be involved as it was what they did in the past games that is why they went on a 7-game winning streak to start the season.

The Indiana Hoosiers had a good bounce-back game after losing two straight. Their last match was against the Northwestern Wildcats and they came up with a tight win, 66-62. In that match, Trayce Jackson-Davis led the team with 21 points and seven rebounds while Justin Smith contributed with 18 points and six rebounds.
Al Durham stepped up with 16 points as Devonte Green had only 1 point and was 0-for-6 from the field. The Hoosiers are going to have to try to defend their homecourt and they are coming in as the underdogs so they can’t afford their top players to have bad games.
