A home loss

The Ohio State men lost to Michigan State 58-48 on Saturday. It was the first home loss this season for any team that I follow, and broke a 39-game home win streak by the Buckeyes. The main problem in that game was extremely poor shooting. This was after an 87-84 home win over Purdue in which OSU had its worst defensive performance of the year. The Bucks bounced back and won at Minnesota Tuesday night 78-68. Looking at the standings, Ohio State and Michigan State have 3 losses in the league.

The OSU women have lost 3 conference games on the road, the latest a heartbreaking 66-65 set back at Illinois. The Bucks did manage to beat Purdue 80-71 in Columbus Sunday afternoon. There is a logjam at the top of the Big Ten standings as Penn State, Purdue and Ohio State all have 3 conference losses.

The Kentucky men are still ranked #1 and are running away with the SEC regular season.

The Kentucky women are all alone in first place in the SEC despite losing two in a row. A 61-51 loss at LSU got the ball rolling. After that was a disasterous trip to Knoxville resulting in a 91-54 thrashing. If the Cats will stand strong for the remaining 4 regular-season games, they are conference champs.

The Blue Jackets went 3-2 since my last post. As the trade deadline approaches, there is even talk that Rick Nash might be traded. He would have to agree, as he has a no-trade clause in his contract.
