Ohio State Hoops Week 6 Recap: A Blend of Fire and ice in Columbus


2022 Ohio State University


The Ohio State men's team had just one game this week, but it was a tough one, as they had to go into a hostile Madison Square Garden and take on the preseason No. 1 team in college basketball in the UNC Tarheels. They would put together two of the best halves of basketball seen by the Buckeye Nation in years. Brice Sensabaugh cemented himself as the best young player on the team and may have even put himself in contention for the NBA Draft after his 22-point performance, a career high. He also hit what was almost the game winning shot with two seconds to go in regulation.


Thanks to Akron native and Revere High School graduate Pete Nance, son of Larry Nance Sr. and brother of Larry Nance Jr,, Sensabaugh's near game winner was not to be, as with 1.2 seconds left on the clock in regulation, Nance drilled a fadeaway to send the game into overtime. The young Buckeyes, who had not experienced this level of physicality all season, were outmatched and couldn't keep pace with the veteran Tarheel unit. They would lose their third game of the year, all of which to ranked opponents, 89-84. Brice took home Player of the Game honor's for the Buckeyes in the loss, despite showing off just how great he could be.


The Buckeyes will host Maine on December 21st at 8:30 p.m. before going on a near week-long holiday hiatus. They will then host Alabama A&M on December 29th.


2022 Ohio State University


The women of Ohio State have continued their historic run this season, overcoming injuries and cold shooting streaks. The women had two games this week and won both of them, despite a combined 11-points from the team leader in Rebeka Mikulasikova in the two games.


The first game was against the Michigan State Spartans, which was the closest a game has been all year long. They would pick up the win 74-68 behind the shooting of Taylor Thierry, who missed just three shots all game long and cashed in on 11 of her 13 free-throws en route to a 21-point performance. The Bucks also had Madison Greene and Taylor Mikesell combine for 31 points in the win.


Their second game was against the Albany Great Danes out of the America East Conference. This was a beatdown that ended in favor of the Buckeyes 82-57. They were led by Cotie McMahon with 24 points in total to lead the team.


Another perfect week extends their record to an outstanding 11-0. Next week, they will play host to South Florida on December 20th at 6:30 p.m. before their holiday hiatus that will last until the 28th when they will travel to Illinois to take on the Wildcats of Northwestern.
