Ohio State basketball key to the game
Play at a high level
Ohio State has made a habit this season of playing to the level of its opponent. That would be fine if the Buckeyes had picked up some big wins, but games against top competition have instead ended in close losses. Furthermore, there have been a couple of close losses. Ohio State has more talent than Nebraska. However, that won’t mean anything if the Buckeyes underperform.
Nebraska basketball key to the game
