No. 6 Buckeyes hope they learned from last game
Monday, February 13, 2012
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- After one of Ohio State's worst shooting days ever, the sixth-ranked Buckeyes are trying to point to their next game instead of pointing fingers at each other.
Forward Jared Sullinger says the Buckeyes played like spoiled brats in Saturday's 58-48 defeat to No. 7 Michigan State. They shot just 26 percent from the field, in large part due to the Spartans' physical, smothering defense.
But the Buckeyes also say they spent most of the game complaining to the officials and about each other instead of buckling down and playing within their system.
A long film session helped them see what they did wrong. Now they're gearing up for a big game at Minnesota on Tuesday night.
