Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State Buckeyes are on back-to-back victories against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Purdue Boilermakers. If it was not for their loss against the Wisconsin Badgers, they could have been in a six-game winning streak. They are currently placed 9th in the stacked Big Ten conference but still, they hold the #25 ranking in the NCAA. On the road, the Buckeyes do not have a good record by winning three of their eight matches. This team will have Wesson leading the charge as he almost averages a double-double with 14.1 points and 9.4 rebounds a night. Washington and Carton each do 10 points a game for the team and are good support players for Wesson.
