2022-2023 Ohio State Men's Basketball

    Let us not forget that most of these players have been playing, coached since they were six. What with the travel ball, different leagues, and players traveling across state lines to suit up with a certain team, can hardly call them rookies. OK, yeah, with the 'new' players, 'new' system, actually having to play defense at the college level, but I believe they can all put it in the hole from wherever. Only real difference might be the body shape, strength, and conditioning between the freshmen and the upper classmen. Guess I'm trying to say that the differences between a 'young' team and a 'seasoned' one may not be that huge.....

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    I have no idea on how to feel about this team. Like some have said, the freshmen could make it something special....or not. I just have one thought on the upcoming season: please, in the name of all that is sacred, don't lose to the juggalos in Maui.

    Got to get past San Diego St first. I remember the last Maui matchup between the Buckeyes and Aztecs. I believe it was O'Brien's last year, and it was as embarrassing a loss as OSU hoops has had. Worst opening to a season ever - losing on the road at San Francisco and then getting boat raced by the Aztecs in Maui.

    ORD_Buckeye Wrong glass, Sir.

    I don't know how those brackets work. Is it single elimination? Or are there loser brackets?

    Ohio State will leave the Bahamas with two exhibition wins over international competition.

    The Buckeyes beat the Puerto Rican national team 75-68 Sunday to improve to 2-0 at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. Ohio State defeated the Egyptian national team in a 72-68 result on Saturday.

    Ohio State's starters against Egypt were pulled from a group of Brice Sensabaugh, Zed Key, Bruce Thornton, Sean McNeil, Tanner Holden and walk-ons Colby Baumann and Owen Spencer, but Chris Holtmann and company switched up the lineup with all-new starters on Sunday.

    Against Puerto Rico, the Buckeyes' starters were assembled from a group of Felix Okpara, Kalen Etzler, Roddy Gayle, Isaac Likekele, Eugene Brown and Bowen Hardman, with Justice Sueing and Seth Towns sitting out as the veteran forwards continue to rehab from injury.

    THE BUCKEYE WAY. Ohio State men’s basketball will have a lot of turnover from last season. There will be new players, new coaches and – given the first two changes – a new offensive and defensive scheme.

    However, one thing will always remain constant about the program so long as Chris Holtmann continues to be the program's head coach. That would be doing everything “The Buckeye Way,” a principle Holtmann said he would implement during his introductory press conference in June 2017.

    “Aggressive, attacking,” Holtmann said of what he expects from Ohio State’s style of play. “We want to be physical and tough and tough-minded. We want our guys to play with freedom. We want them to cut loose and play. I think that’s what people will see.”

    Buckeye fans saw just how physical, tough and tough-minded the men’s basketball team could be when the program’s Twitter account posted highlights of a team conditioning workout inside Ohio Stadium.

    So honest question, is there any chance of being a top 25 team or making any sort of run in the Tourney? With all the players we lost, seems like we would be in for a down season unless the incoming freshmen are legit...which I know they were mostly highly rated guys, but the class before only had Etzler and Branham, and of course Branham is gone now. I know we hit the portal hard but I just look at the roster and can't help but wonder if we're going to be in for a middle-low B1G finish and NIT appearance. Obviously I hope that isn't the case, but I don't follow basketball as closely as football and just curious on everyone's thoughts.

    I mostly ask because if we do have a down year, I am thinking they keep CH because once the '23 class gets paired up with the '22 class, I think they are going to be lights out. But we may have to weather the storm until then.

    There should be enough talent there to make the tourney at least. I'm not sure about a run in the tourney though, that will depend on how the freshmen develop as the year goes on.

    Zed Key is still around. He's a solid veteran anchor. Hopefully Justice Sueing can comeback somewhat at pre-injury form that would help a lot. Tanner Holden the Transfer from Wright State should help with scoring as well.

    There's not really a "superstar" type player (yet at least) but there's a pretty decent core to start.

    I think they'll end up somewhere between 4th and 6th in the B1G and end up being a 8 or 9 seed in the tournament.

    Given the roster turnover, incoming and expected classes and his recent track record and extension, CH is going nowhere for at least 2 more seasons, probably more.
