Sophomore guard has helped Ohio State to current 10-game win streak going back to last season

Jon Diebler has helped the Buckeyes carry momentum from the 2008 NIT championship run into the 2008-09 season. Ohio State has won 10 games in a row, the final five last season and the first five this year. Diebler led the Buckeyes’ comeback win Tuesday at Miami with a career-best 20 points.

Ohio State has several factors playing into its next game Saturday vs. Butler. Not only did head coach Thad Matta and assistant Brandon Miller play and coach for the Bulldogs, but the Buckeyes have a little redemption on their mind after dropping a 65-46 decision at then-No. 16 ranked Butler last Dec. 1.
