Last Week in Buckeye Basketball: Week 15

Men’s Basketball

Weekly record: 0-2

Season record: 16-9

Gonna be honest with you: Not a great week for the men’s squad. They took on two conference opponents and finished the week with two more losses and their worst offensive showing of the season.

On Valentine’s Day, the Bucks had the chance to capture all our hearts at home against Illinois, but couldn’t seal the deal. The squad went just 2-of-13 from beyond the arc and committed 18 turnovers, which isn’t exactly a recipe for success. C.J. Jackson led the Bucks with 17 points and tied with three others for the team rebounding lead at 5, however, he also committed 7 turnovers. The Illini took down the Bucks 56-63.

If you thought the Illinois game was heartbreaking, shield your eyes: Traveling to East Lansing to take on Michigan State on Sunday, the Bucks put up only 44 points, the worst showing of the season. Kaleb Wesson led the team ins coring with 12, and no other Buckeye scored in double digits. Ultimately, they lost 44-62.

The team’s next game comes Wednesday, Feb. 20 vs. Northwestern.

Women’s Basketball

Weekly record: 2-0

Season record: 12-12

What was a bad week for the men’s team turned out to be one of the best in recent weeks for the women’s squad, as they gathered two conference wins with a smothering defense.

While the men’s squad may have broken your heart on Valentine’s Day, the women’s squad showed up to impress. In a dominant showing (albeit against Rutgers), Adreana Miller led the charge with 14 points and three total Buckeyes scored in double digits, all while the team held Rutgers to just 39 points. Behind the power of Miller’s scoring and Dorka Juhasz’ dominant rebounding (13 on the night), the Bucks won 59-39.

Then, on Sunday, the Bucks returned home and hosted the Wisconsin Badgers, who fought hard against the Buckeyes but ultimately fell short. Dorka Juhasz was balling, and finished her night with 21 points and 15 rebounds, both of which led all players. Each of Janai Crooms, Carmen Grande and Carly Santoro poured in over 10 points as well, and their performances propelled the Bucks to a slim 70-68 victory.

The team’s next game comes Thursday, Feb. 21 @ Michigan State.
