Maui Invitational Game #2: Ohio State

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022
5:00 PM
Lahaina Civic Center
ESPN2

The Bearcats will look for redemption in paradise this evening as they hope to atone for yesterday’s 101-93 loss to Arizona while also aiming to defeat Ohio State for the first time in 60 years.

The Buckeyes (3-1) lost to #17 San Diego State 88-77 yesterday in a game that took on a similar trajectory to the UC-Arizona matchup. The Aztecs built a sizable advantage midway through the first half, took an 11-point lead into the halftime break, and comfortably held on for the duration of the game.

OSU was hardly tested in their first 3 games of the season, which saw them win each by an average margin of 29 points, but struggled to slow down an Aztecs offense that shot 50.6% from the field, 47.6% from 3, and 16/20 from the free throw line.

Once-Bearcat transfer candidate Sean McNeil led the Buckeyes with 22 points on 9/14 shooting.

The Buckeyes don’t boast impressive size (in comparison to Arizona) but have good athletes and a number of hungry freshmen from a top 10 2022 recruiting class.

The Bearcats are 3.5 point underdogs.

Two similar teams by the stats. Ohio State shoots even more from the midrange than we do. Hopefully that holds today. They also turn it over a lot and don't get to the line much like us.

Their field goal defense is really good, but defensive efficiency is just ok because they don't cause turnovers.

Davenport is such a liability defensively and rebounding wise.

They are trash. Davenport and ddj force everything. They need to be benched. Miller as usual cannot coach, what a mistake of a hire he was.

What an embarrassment the last three games have been.

This team has zero identity on offense or defense.

We are really bad.

We need players. And Wes needs to develop an identity.

They could pay anyone a million dollars to let guys go out and hope their talent can win on offense. There is zero offensive coaching and a bunch of guys who take ridiculous shots but continue to go unchecked. Miller will be gone after next season. To bad it will take that long.
