Buckeyes Fall in Double Overtime to Siena

The Ohio State Buckeyes lost a heartbreaker in a 74-72 double overtime thriller to the Siena Saints Friday night at UD Arena in Dayton, Ohio. 


Even if the Buckeyes had won Friday night, I still think they would lose to Louisville in the second round.  The way the Buckeyes play slow-tempo, out-of-synch on offense, zone-defense the whole game, and how they had trouble handling the zone trap from Siena, no way would they have a chance against the defensive pressure and the uptempo of #1 seed Louisville.

Overall, the Buckeyes can be proud of another 20 win season and another NCAA tournament appearance and can look forward to another season with the same players (no graduating seniors this year) that will have more expereince playing together.  Hopefully next year, they will be a better team than this year’s team and can make a run in the NCAA tournament.
