COLUMBUS, Ohio – Men’s basketball head coach Thad Matta participated in the weekly Big Ten teleconference Monday. He reflected on the Buckeyes’ two close wins vs. Iowa and Northwestern last week and looked ahead to the Big Ten tournament game vs. Wisconsin Friday.

Opening Statement:
“Obviously we had a good week, tough week, with a win in Iowa City by two and yesterday’s game vs. Northwestern. Just another hard-fough battle. It’s interesting – in your mind, you look back and say, that’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever gone through as a coach, going through a conference season like it is. I think that speaks volumes about the Big Ten and how good that this league is this year.”
