Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netChris Ross prides himself in being a really serious student of basketball.

Ohio State sophomore guard C.J. Jackson attempts a shot over Indiana’s Thomas Bryant on March 4 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorOhio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta said the Buckeyes defense would have to be at an “all-time high” on Saturday against Indiana to close out the regular season with a win.It was quite the opposite.The Indiana Hoosiers (17-14, 7-11 Big Ten) made their first six shots and 13 of their first 15 en route to a 96-92 win over Ohio State on Senior Day at the Schottenstein Center. The Hoosiers shot 59 percent from the field and 65 percent in the first half.Indiana junior guard Robert Johnson led all scorers with 26 points and snapped his shooting slump by making 10-of-17 shots from the field, including 5 of 8 from 3.Sophomore center Thomas Bryant, redshirt junior guard Josh Newkirk and junior guard James Blackmon were also in double figures with 16, 18 and 22, respectively.Junior forward Jae’Sean Tate led the Buckeyes with 20 points. Sophomore guard C.J. Jackson, and sophomore guard JaQuan Lyle each had 18 points, while redshirt junior center Trevor Thompson added 19.“We scored 92 but they scored 96 so obviously we weren’t playing the defense that we play,” Tate said. “I’m more focused on the defense and giving up 96 points — unacceptable, especially 50-plus at half.”Johnson had been shooting 7 for 42 combined from 3 in his last eight games, but came out firing from the get-go. Johnson’s early offensive output severely dictated how the game was going to play out for the OSU defense.“We’re a get-well card for guys,” Matta said. “You’re struggling? Play Ohio State and you get out of your slump just like that. It’s been like that all year long.”From the tip, OSU was outpaced by the Indiana offense. Blackmon drilled a 3 to cap an 11-0 run in the first two minutes and 18 seconds. Indiana had scored 19 points by the first media timeout and led 32-15 at the under-12 timeout. The Hoosiers led 54-40 at the half.“It seemed like every shot they were taking was going in,” Tate said. “We knew they were a transition team and that killed us. We didn’t get back, build walls, stop the ball fast enough for them to run their half-court offense, and that was the game plan.”Matta called for a double team in the post when Bryant caught the ball, and even implemented a zone press on occasion to slow down the Indiana attack. Tate said that at halftime, OSU knew Indiana couldn’t continue to shoot the way it did in the first half.Sure enough, the Buckeye defense stepped up in the second half, allowing just four points from the 18:05 mark to 9:14 remaining. Starting with a layup from junior forward Jae’Sean Tate and a 3 by sophomore guard C.J. Jackson, the Buckeyes went on a 10-0 run before the first media timeout, cutting the deficit to four.Then, less than three minutes later, back-to-back 3s from senior guard Marc Loving and Jackson grabbed OSU its first lead of the game, 62-61.However, Blackmon ended that short-lived lead on the next possession with a 3 of his own. After a Tate layup tied the game at 64, Indiana’s shooting came to life with a 10-0 run. At the final media timeout, the Hoosiers led 84-74.“They were hitting tough shots, they were making 3s and that kind of killed us from there,” Jackson said.OSU continued to answer Indiana free throws with buckets of its own. Jackson made a shot from deep with 3.3 seconds remaining to cut the Hoosier lead to 94-92. But Blackmon was iced the game with two free throws with 2.7 seconds left.With the loss, OSU is now guaranteed to play on Wednesday at the Big Ten Tournament. If Nebraska beats Michigan at home on Sunday night, OSU will be the 12th seed and plays Penn State at 4:30 p.m. If Michigan wins, OSU will be the 11th seed against Rutgers at 7 p.m.“Every loss is going to not feel too good,” Tate said. “What’s done is done and we just got to prepare to make a run in the tournament.”

The Big Red (13-2, 5-0 EIWA) has won their most recent duel in dominant fashion against North Carolina 29-5.Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said this non-conference duel is important for the sport of wrestling.“For the growth of this sport, [having] big duels is important,” Ryan said. “It is a good team and it is going to [have] some competitive matches.”The Buckeyes are coming off a 21-12 victory against then-No. 7 Nebraska on Sunday while winning six of its 10 bouts.

Reports from the local media suggest that Barcelona is worried for French midfielder Adrien Rabiot pulling another Griezmann and leaving them stranded. During last summer there was a general feeling that French midfielder Adrien Rabiot had the burning desire to leave Paris Saint-Germain and play for FC Barcelona this season. The arrival of German manager Thomas Tuchel to Paris prevented the player from making a final decision and ultimately decided to stay at the club, with the alleged verbal agreement that Rabiot would try to sign for the Catalan club either during the winter transfer window or next summer. However, new reports suggest that English club Liverpool has interfered in the negotiations and the player has already started to doubt if Barcelona is really a good destination to continue his professional career. There have been reports coming from the English press that suggest Jürgen Klopp is keen on the Frenchman joining Liverpool next summer, which is something that has put the Barcelona club board uneasy because they feel like there is a new tendency of players turning their back on the club for other squads and they are scared that Rabiot pulls another Griezmann like last summer.Reports out today that #LFC have had conversations with Adrien Rabiot’s agent over a proposed move. His agent also happens to be his mother. Last October, in an interview with French radio station RMC, Rabiot said that he grew up loving Liverpool (ESPN). pic.twitter.com/XyI4D8MnCh— LFC Scout Watch (@Mobyhaque1) September 5, 2018With this fear very present among the club’s high command, sporting director Eric Abidal got the direct order from Josep Maria Bartomeu to stay in constant communication with the player and keep him convinced that playing for Barcelona is on his best interest. The former French player travels to Paris constantly and has a very healthy relationship to the Parisian club’s board member Maxwell, who was also a Barça player during his prime and is the link that maintains the Catalan club’s great relationship with owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi. The whole manner in which Antoine Griezmann conducted himself during the negotiations with FC Barcelona was taken as a direct classless act that they will hardly forget, this has brought a whole new outlook on how to conduct future transfers with any player and they also have an open book with plans B, B and D for when Plan A fails to come through. Adrien Rabiot is part of two Plan A’s the club has, the other one being Paul Pogba but a much less likely one to happen in the near future.Barcelona are confident of beating AC Milan over the signing of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot. (Source: CalcioMercato) pic.twitter.com/QmWCiV8vd8Top 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.— Transfer News Live (@DeadlineDayLive) September 6, 2018Time is running out for Barcelona.The problem with Liverpool getting in the way of the negotiations with FC Barcelona, is that the player’s agent and his mother have already established contact with the Reds according to ESPN because Rabiot has a soft spot for the English club since he was a kid. Plus, Jürgen Klopp prefers to stay silent for the next year and hope that Rabiot doesn’t sign a contract extension with the club which would effectively set him as a free agent next summer and he could go to any club of his choosing completely free after June of 2019. Barcelona would suffer a similar fate to the one Sevilla got this summer with Real Madrid and the whole Mariano fiasco, but the transfer market is ruthless that way. Any club that starts getting cozy with any player’s negotiation, can end up losing their effort in the end because a slicker club came and took the asset from right under their nose. Barcelona has been known for messing up transfers of this nature in the past, players they think are easy to obtain and they end up losing them in the end against another club that was a faster negotiator.Barcelona?
