Ohio State vs. Syracuse Instant Reaction: 3 Things We Learned In Defeat

Live And Die By The Three

Okay, so maybe it’s not that extreme, but a big part of a guard oriented offense like Ohio State’s is the ability to shoot from the outside. Coming into today, that had actually been an unexpected bright spot and the hope was that it would continue.

But not so against Syracuse.

Again, we can probably attribute a lot of that to the length out on the perimeter with that 2-3 zone, but we also all know that there’s games when shots just aren’t falling.

The Buckeyes got a little too content with trying to splash threes tonight instead of being aggressive and active on the interior of the zone, and the lack of shot-making was too much to overcome.

It’s a part of Ohio State’s game that will be the difference between beating good teams and coming up just short like it did in this one.
