Best of Week 5: First week of 7 Big Ten matchups in 2016

Watch Buckeyes videobomb Greg Beals' BTN interview

BTN’s Kevin Kugler and Danan Hughes conducted a dugout interview with Greg Beals during Ohio State’s elimination game in the Big Ten tournament Saturday night. Thing is, the back-and-forth banter took a backseat to what was going on behind Beals. Loose as ever, hours after dispatching rival Michigan in an earlier elimination game, the Buckeyes choreographed an entertaining videobomb, complete with squirt guns and the team’s battle axe. “Uh, you’ve got squirt guns going pretty strong behind you,” Kugler said. “I’m sure you’re aware of that.” “Our guys have learned to enjoy (it), grinding it out and competing,” Beals said.
