Looks like a work in process for the coaching staff with so many Freshman and younger players plus several missing a lot of practice with injuries.
These early games do mean a lot when the committee does the seeding and selection for the NCAA tourney. They reference all the time that Team A beat Team B in December and that shows us how strong they are. This was a great win for the Buckeyes in that regard.Villanova came out flat and paid the price for it, early season game doesn't mean a lot ( Ky. losing to Evansville ). Was very impressed with Kaleb Wesson, much improved defensive player however not much depth right now behind Wesson at the center position. Guard play is much better than last season and deep. IMO OSU will finish anywhere between 1st and 3rd in the BIG.
