Getting a road win in the Big Ten in January is huge. Ohio State snapped their five game losing streak 70-60 at Nebraska.
The Buckeyes were able to crash the boards and grab rebounds as they out rebounded the Huskers 45 to 31. The Buckeyes used that to their advantage to get second looks in the victory
We finally saw the potential that freshman guard Luther Muhammad could provide for Ohio State, he was the star for the Buckeyes. Muhammad had a career high 24 points and six rebounds.
Muhammad was able to put the team on his back and seal the victory. His clutch three-point makes in the second half were the difference.
Sophomore center Kaleb Wesson continues to struggle to score only recording seven points on the day. On a positive note he was able to get a team high 11 rebounds.
Junior forward Andre Wesson added his fourth double-digit game in the past five games with 10 points. The junior provided energy and effort that you will not see on the stat line. He continues to get better as the season progresses.
Next up for the Buckeyes will be the biggest game of the season as they head up to Ann Arbor, Michigan Tuesday night to face arch rival, No. 5 ranked Michigan.
