No. 8 Ohio State basketball vs. Penn State preview

Penn State vs. Ohio State - 2/15/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Wolverines are 14-1 at home this year and will look to keep the good times rolling on Senior Day.

While Ohio State managed to decrease the deficit later in the second half, the Penn State lead proved to be insurmountable. That includes a 71-62 win over the Wolverines on December 4. Ohio State has won four straight heading into its game at Penn State on Thursday night.

He'll need to be on his game as he likely will be guarding Ohio State's Keita Bates-Diop, the favorite to win the Big Ten Player of the Year award.

LOOKING AHEAD: As of Wednesday, bracketologists project the Big Ten will have four teams in the NCAA Tournament.

On the subsequent Spartans' power-play, Lewandowski converted a centering feed from Patrick Khodorenko for the second time of the evening to extend Michigan State's lead to two goals. He comes in averaging 12.5 points per game.

The Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in one of the college basketball games on Thursday, start time at 8:00 PM ET, at Bryce Jordan Center, University Park, Pennsylvania. Whether that is a good or bad thing for MI remains to be seen. Ohio State cut it to 16 before the Nittany Lions rebounded thanks to key buckets from Carr and sophomore forward Mike Watkins.

One would have to think that Penn State can control its own destiny to make the tournament this year.

Holtmann was unsure how big a role the one-time starter will play, but did say Andre Wesson will get the start, not Williams. In Michigan's last three games, Zavier Simpson has scored a combined 10 points.

ESPN, however, likes the Buckeyes.

The X-factor is Charles Matthews.

Michigan State jumped out to a 1-0 lead just 2:15 into the contest on a shot from the right dot that should have been saved by Jones. It's a brutal stretch on the schedule with back-to-back-to-back games against ranked opponents before finishing on the road against Nebraska, but with Penn State playing their best ball of the year it at least gives them a shot of chasing a potential NCAA Tournament bid, one that Penn State hasn't had since 2011.

Offensive coordinator Ryan Day also becomes a $1 million assistant for the Buckeyes.

MI ranks second nationally in fewest turnovers per game (9.32). It was the fourth 30 point game from Carr, who shot 9-15 from the field in the victory.

MI has two players ranked in the Top 10 nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio; Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman leads the nation and Zavier Simpson checks in at No. 15.
