At the end of the season, they don’t ask you how you won, just how many you have. And for Ohio State, it can say that it’s three for three on the season.

It wasn’t a clinic on offense, but the Scarlet and Gray made plays when they had to and pulled away at the very end to march on and continue to look for improvement.

Here’s three things we learned.

This Team’s Calling Card Is Defense And Tenacity

Ohio State is going to win this year by making things tough on the opponent, not by playing silky smooth offense or running up and down the court. No, this team will need to dig in, work hard on the glass and just fight for forty minutes.

Creighton made a big run in the second half to take the lead, and a weaker team would have folded. But not Ohio State. It pulled its scarlet and gray britches up and got some key rebounds, locked down in the half-court on defense, and made some finishes around the bucket to pull away as the sands of the hourglass ran out.
