Ohio State surprised a lot of people last year, and if UNC-Pembroke head coach Ben Miller is to be believed, they’re going to do it again in 2018-19.

The Buckeyes played a lot of bodies last night and cruised their way to a 81-63 win last night that wasn’t even as close as that score would indicate. If last night is any indication, the team is deeper than past years, has some strength girth and rebounding ability that should serve it well in the Big Ten.

When asked about Ohio State being picked No. 8 in the Big Ten by the media in the preseason, Miller couldn’t believe it.

“They were picked eighth in the Big Ten? That’s nuts, if that’s the eighth best team in the Big Ten. They’re going to shock a lot of people and I was really impressed with their team.”

He’s not the only one that had glowing remarks. Miller’s assistant coach just happens to be his father and former Ohio State standout Eldon Miller. He also was very impressed.

“I think they are stronger than they have previously been and their guards are very experienced. They have a chance to be very, very good. They are deep and they have several guys that can shoot the basketball. The most important statistic in basketball other than the final score is rebound margin and they have a lot of guys who can rebound the basketball. This was a special night and we all wanted to see how we were going to react against that physical strength.”

Whether both Millers are right remains to be seen, but we’ll get a better measuring stick when Ohio State travels to Cincinnati to take on the Bearcats in its first real game next week.
