Ohio State Buckeyes
Isn’t it better when the teams hate each other? Here are the top 5 team rivalries in sports.
Buckeyes trailed at half, but ralllied for 48-39 win.
Illinois found the end zone several times, but not enough against #3 Ohio State.
Sam Thompson reached back with his right hand, snared the slightly off-target pass and dunked it in one forceful motion, providing Ohio State with its grandest slam. And far from the only one.
Even though Ohio State hasn’t fared all that well in Dayton since he’s been the head coach — never made it through the opening weekend of the NCAA tournament intact — it’s still the place for his fondest college basketball memory.
Buckeyes haven’t forgotten about Jan 5th thumping at Champaign.
The Illini , now 14-2 overall and 1-1 in the Big Ten, led 37-25 at halftime and used a 13-2 run early in the second half to build a 50-27 lead.
