Ohio State elected to play there days before they travel to Chicago to take on North Carolina, making it their first of two contests away from home this week.
Head coach Thad Matta spoke about what he hopes his team can gain playing away from Value City Arena.
Two weeks removed from their first loss of the season, a 64-55 loss at Louisville Dec. 2, point guard Shannon Scott spoke about what the team has gained from that experience.
Heading in to their ninth game of the season, Matta said he was pleased with how the young players have mixed with the upperclassmen. The Buckeyes have three true fershmen, a redshirt freshmen, one sophomore, four seniors and a fifth year senior in their rotation.
