Shannon Scott Pass Throw the Legs to Trey McDonald Dunk

No doubt about it, Shannon Scott has struggled during Ohio State’s recent Big Ten slide. The junior guard came off the bench for the first time this season Saturday at Wisconsin, and he just so happened to help lead the Buckeyes to a 59-58 road win. Oh, and he also tallied one of the best assists you’ll see all season. Let’s just say, Scott caught Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky by surprise on his dime to Trey McDonald. Watch the highlight pass in this post.

Shannon Scott Starts Off Hot

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Ohio State’s Shannon Scott entered his junior season with a grand total of 12 3-pointers. In Saturday’s season opener vs. Morgan State, Scott hit a trio of early treys in succession, the first coming at the 19:03 mark and the final at 17:55. That’s three 3s in 1:08 of game time. Not bad for a guy who’s known for his defense.

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday, Iowa defended its home court with a win over Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes raced out to a 30-10 lead before the Badgers finally got something going on offense, though I think that early start for Wisconsin overshadows what kind of game this really was.

Big Ten Geeks: On the chin

The Big Ten had a relatively bad weekend, dropping marquee games against other high-major conference teams. The main event was a battle between two top-10 teams when Kansas visited Columbus. Given that the game was on the Buckeyes’ floor, Ohio State should have won this game, and probably by more than just a point or two. Instead, Kansas ended up with a relatively comfortable 8-point win. The Jayhawks led most of the way, and started pulling away with about ten minutes left. There was no great mystery as to why OSU lost—they were terrible shooting the ball, both inside and outside the arc. On twos, Ohio State converted just 35 percent, and they were at 26 percent on threes. Kansas, meanwhile, shot 53 and 46 percent, respectively. Otherwise, OSU outplayed the Jayhawks, but shooting trumps all.
