In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Cleveland State at Ohio State.
The Cleveland State Vikings is a very inexperienced team which is rightfully considered as a big underdog in this game. The Vikings started the season really badly and they haven’t turn things around since but they are starting to learn how to get to the basket and convert their opportunities to points. They are averaging 76 points per game while they are allowing 74 points.
Ohio State is in the top-25 and it is ranked 23rd. The Buckeyes have bench players that can really hurt their opponents. Last time out Kaleb Wesson came off the bench to score 19 points and he also added 7 rebounds in their win 68-50 win over Samford. Ohio State is also averaging 79 points per game with 50% shooting from the floor while they are allowing just 57 points.
Both teams are coming off games against Samford. Cleveland State lost by 73-60 while the Buckeyes won their game by 68-50. I expect the Vikings to have an even lower scoring numbers in this one. I can’t envisage them scoring more than 50 while Ohio State can easily go over 80, especially when their bench players are on the floor.
