UConn at Ohio State…1st half…

 

 

____

  • Excited, nervous, worried, hopeful for this game…
  • Jalen Adams gets off 1st – a two…
  • Looks like an active crowd…how many are there?
  • Great look by Lyle…three by Kam goes down.
  • Brimah hooks for two…
  • Another good pass by Lyle…J.Tate for two…
  • Quick, nonsensical pass by Tate…to Potter…comes in hot, unexpected and over his head backwards…can do better than those kind of decisions…
  • Lyle is under control tonight…layup, picks up UConn turnover at half-court, waits on team to come back down court instead of shootitng quickly, feeds Loving for a deep three!!!
  • 10-4—-
  • Tate left hand two bank
  • Jalen Adams for two…
  • Lyle to Potter to Tate…nice pass by Potter…
  • (Sorry, had to take a break to help with Christmas presents)
  • 13-10…Buckeyes have cooled off a little…

So far the pace and decision making is good for Ohio State…now keep making good decisions and trust the game plan…

  • KBD drops in a three-quarter hook jump hook….5 feet from rim after a drive…
  • Is that Thompson’s 2nd foul or KBD’s?
  • Jalen Adams is really good…rolls a fast break right hand going left bank shot in…
  • Trevor Thompson with the turn around rebound for two…
  • 17-13 Buckeyes
  • Potter is shooting too quickly…take another split second to gather and then shoot, Micah…
  • Nice drive and bounce pass by Lyle to Thompson…fouled…hits one…
  • Close game…Buckeyes are okay so far…I’m okay…LOL…
  • Dang big pile in lane after Thompson falls and gets bodies on top of him
  • 18-17…7:19
  • UConn slowly getting comfortable…Buckeyes are missing shots they get…not getting the good looks they earned early…

Won’t be able to deal with aftermath of this game if Buckeyes lose…fans will rant minus any mercy…

  • Adams hits two FT shots…UConn 19-18
  • Tate dumps to Loving cutting to basket…spin and pump fake…makes one FT…
  • Lyle’s hand too much on top of the ball…
  • UConn post, rebound and turnaround two..
  • Thompson hits first FT…off foul on offensive rebound…hits second…
  • 21-21
  • Thompson turns to the baseline…TWO! (I get excited when he makes shots within the offense)  : )
  • 23-21 Buckeyes
  • Loving bounce pass to Thompson…BOOM!
  • Thompson D rebound…pass ahead to Loving…drives..hard UConn foul…
  • Timeout

Marc Loving better make two FTs here…concentrate and make two, senior…

  • 25-21 w/two FTs coming…makes first…makes second…Ah-Ha! I knew he could do it!
  • CJ Jackson running the point…
  • Vital w/too easy of a layup…what the heck?
  • Rebound by Andre…fouled makes one FT…
  • J. Tate left hand in the lane…his usual money…
  • What happened on that oop? Jackson to Loving…was open…but didn;t get it over rim…
  • Steal, drive and hoop by JaQuan Lyle…
  • 32-28…Buckeyes…Timeout

On top of Buckeye runs they need to get stops!

  • 32.8…Didn’t get a stop…Timeout after a UConn three…Buckeye ball…23 seconds left on shot clock…32-31…Buckeyes
  • Buckeyes stunk out of the timeout out of bounds…Wide open UConn three by Adams….Tate left him to go all the way to the baseline to try and cover a Husky…UConn pulled the right trigger on the pass…halftime UConn leads 34-32…Tate’s shoulders sink in disappointment…

Buckeyes can win this…teams are evenly matched it seems…Jalen Adams is an excellent talent…UConn has momentum…
