Off To A Good Start

Basketball season is off to a reasonably good start.

The Ohio State women, under first-year coach Kevin McGuff, are 3-1. The lone blemish is a 4-point loss at Georgia, one of the better SEC teams. Starting tonight, the Bucks play three games in three days in the Basketball Hall-of-Fame classic. This includes a game against Marist who has eliminated the Buckeyes from the NCAA tournament in years past.

The Kentucky women are undefeated and have not yet had a close game. This includes a win at Marist. The Cats will be at Middle Tennessee Sunday afternoon, a place where they have lost recently.

The Ohio State men are unbeaten, including an impressive 52-35 win at Marquette. The Kentucky freshman lost by 4 to an experienced Michigan State team in Chicago. Had the Cats shot free throws better it might have been a different story. They made a nice comeback after being down big early.

The Blue Jackets are 8-11-3 and tied for last place in the Metropolitan division. But there are plenty of opportunities to get back in the hunt. Road wins over Ottawa and Calgary bracketed a 7-0 blow out loss in Edmonton. The Jackets have games at Vancouver and Toronto before heading back home.
