Battle of Unbeatens--Rush The Court

Ohio St. 54, Butler 51. We gotta hand it to Thad Matta. In a game that, by all indications, Ohio St. should have lost, his squad gutted out a hard-nosed victory against another unbeaten team who could have really used an RPI-boosting win for later in the year. OSU barely hung on in this one, missing its last nine FGs from the floor and six of its final eight foul shots, but its hallmark defense (#1 nationally in defensive efficiency) was the difference, as Butler’s Gordon Hayward (25/7) missed a game-tying three with two seconds remaining. The Buckeyes held Butler to a mere 32% shooting, but one concern should be that Butler outrebounded the bigger Buckeyes.
