Video: Watch Sam Thompson's Saturday dunk-a-thon

Only a sophomore, Sam Thompson has plenty of individual highlights ahead of him. Thing is, the high-flying Buckeye may have a difficult time topping the highlight reel he directed in Saturday’s rout of Long Beach State. Thompson made a living high above the rim, throwing down a pair of impressive alley-oops and slamming home an inbound pass. Watch Thompson dunk the inbound pass now, and see his two alley-oops in this post. As for the poke on the inbound pass, this is nothing new for Thompson. At some point, teams will learn to keep him away from the paint on

No. 7 Ohio State pummels Long Beach State

Deshaun Thomas had 18 points to lead No. 7 Ohio State past tired Long Beach State 89-55 on Saturday. LaQuinton Ross had 16 points in a reserve role, Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 14, and Sam Thompson had 13 for the Buckeyes (6-1), who built a 42-point lead before experimenting with different lineup combinations. [RELATED: Watch Sam Thompson’s Saturday Dunk-A-Thon] Dan Jennings scored 16 points and James Ennis had 12 for the 49ers (3-6), who have dropped three straight. They lost at No. 4 Syracuse 84-53 on Thursday before taking on another top-10 team just over 40 hours later. Up by

Big Ten Geeks: Four weeks in & what do we know?

With the volume of competitive games slowing considerably this week, it seems like a good time to reflect on what we’ve seen in the first four weeks of the 2012-13 basketball season. In bullet point format, here’s what I’ve found interesting so far: Jared Berggren is an NBA player. This statement could prove a bit premature, as Berggren has struggled with conference play in his career, but Wisconsin’s senior center has been off the charts. Berggren is shooting 65 percent on twos, 41 percent on threes, and 84 percent on free throws, all while dominating the offensive glass and rarely

Ohio State to get new floor at Value City Arena

The Ohio State basketball teams will have a late present waiting for them when they return to the hardwood following the winter holiday. According to The Columbus Dispatch’s Bob Baptist, Value City Arena is getting a new floor that will be ready after Christmas. The design rivals that of Illinois’, particularly the school logo at midcourt superimposed over an outline of the state of Ohio. Ohio State fans should enjoy this new feature, because it was a staple at St. John Arena. No, it’s not the same logo as the one in the old gym, but it’s a modern nod

Did You See This? Greg Oden interview

Former Ohio State standout Greg Oden stopped by the BTN booth to talk with Tom Hamilton and Jim Jackson during Saturday’s game against Northern Kentucky. At one point, he was asked what he remembered most about the season that ended one win short of an NCAA championship. Oden didn’t miss a beat and replied: “We lost.” Oden, 24, is taking classes at Ohio State and he talked a little bit about his time with the Buckeyes, his future plans, and then he gave his thoughts on the current Buckeyes basketball team. Watch the video in this post.

Big Ten Geeks: The ACC Strikes Back

In a bit of a surprise, the ACC took four of six games last night to clinch a tie in this year’s Challenge. Let’s look at how they did it. Ohio State played an excellent first half at Cameron Indoor, but the Buckeyes’ defense let them down after the break as Duke pulled away. The change in Duke’s efficiency was startling: First Half Efficiency Second Half Efficiency Ohio State 1.04 1.03 Duke 0.77 1.39 This scalding second half can be explained with a basic stat: the Blue Devils made eight dunks or layups in the second half, after making only
