Ohio State freshman Daniel Giddens took to Twitter last night to apologize to fans after the Buckeyes got waxed by Maryland yesterday, 100-65.
The loss was the worst in coach Thad Matta’s tenure and the Buckeyes fell to 12-7 (4-2 Big Ten). The conference is tougher than years past this season and the future doesn’t get any easier. Ohio State next takes on Purdue on Thursday in a game that will be nationally televised, and it’s clear that these are not the Ohio State teams fans have grown accustomed to seeing play over the past few years. The Buckeyes made the Final Four in 2012 and the Elite Eight the year after, and could be in serious danger of missing the postseason in 2016 barring a major turnaround.
Hopefully, this loss rallies the players and induces a strong run.
