The Buckeyes have won three straight and eight of their last nine, but they remained outside of the top 25 in this week's Associated Press poll released Monday.
Senior transfer Andrew Dakich who averages just over three points a game, hit a three pointer to start the scoring run.

I think that's a huge improvement from past year. "He was defending, he was making shots, and he was making us hard to guard... But I don't think we can expect these offensive numbers". Asked whether he would text Matta after the game, Holtmann said he likely would call him this week and then also shared his thoughts on the man he replaced.

Once they got there, the trio allegedly made a decision to kill McAlister, stabbing him to death leaving his body in the woods. Hawkins continued, saying that there hadn't been a moment where he hadn't been remorseful for what he had done.
