"It's a tie game and then everything exploded in the last minute and a half".

Ohio State's 80-64 rout of the visiting Spartans didn't merely highlight the remarkable job new coach Chris Holtmann has done developing the unheralded collection of players he inherited from Thad Matta this summer. They're now allowing 1.21 points per possession in ACC play, dead last among the conference's 15 teams.

"We need great preparation, but I don't know if I've seen a better team in my six-plus years as a head coach". I liked our attitude. "But we've given the coach a good reason to trust us, so we're going to continue to learn to not let it happen again". "That was the attitude of our guys tonight". Whether it was their talent or the fact that they overmatched Ohio State, the Spartans took an early 11-4 lead.

Ohio State basketball has an imperfect roster thanks to a mixture of recruiting misses and transfers and washouts, and nothing the Buckeyes do this season can change that fact. Jackson wouldn't have been the difference in Maryland's 30-point loss to Michigan State last week. The 80-64 loss doesn't move the Spartans from the top of the Big Ten ― not even close ― but it provides a heck of a résumé for the Buckeyes. The Buckeyes kept outplaying them in every facet, hitting from outside, getting good post position, contesting every shot hard, etc.

Those felt like the two most likely outcomes. "I thought we were more consistent tonight and I think at the end of the day, you've got to win those type of games".

Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford each scored 17 points for the Spartans, who fell to 15-and-2 and 3-and-1 in conference play.

In its second true road game, Michigan State didn't respond well to a run by its opponent.

"Yeah, coaches get surprised", he said. We'll just have to see at the end of the tunnel what it is. "We've just got to keep moving forward".

The Spartans dropped to No. 4 in the latest Associated Press poll and will try to bounce back against Rutgers at the Breslin Center on Wednesday.

(7) TENNESSEE 86, VANDERBILT 73: Mercedes Russell scored a career-high 33 points as the Vols (15-0, 3-0 SEC) came from behind in the second half to outlast Vanderbilt (4-13, 0-3) at Knoxville, Tennessee, where the Commodores are 0-33 all-time. Isaiah Reese added 12 with seven assists and Crumpton finished with 11 points, 0-for-5 from 3. Kodi Justice scored 20 points and carried the offensive load most of the night for Arizona State (13-2, 1-2 Pac-12), but Evans scored 10 straight points down the stretch.

Can the Buckeyes become an NCAA tournament team in Year 1 of Holtmann's tenure? We were around the net. We only had four points off the bench.

Over the past few seasons, with so much talent on the edge of the Buckeyes" vaunted defensive line, Ohio State has employed the unorthodox "rushmen' package in obvious passing situations; namely third down and long. For us right now, everything has to be right and we have to get a couple of breaks. "There was no thinking we're better than we are".

Michigan State faces Wisconsin on the road next weekend.
