Pick almost any season for the Ohio State basketball program and the goals will probably look about the same—a Big Ten regular season championship, a conference tournament crown, a trip to the Final Four and, ultimately, a national championship.
While only one Buckeye team has ever been able to place a check mark next to each of these goals, the scarlet and gray have recently made a habit out of at least contending for each. The upcoming season should be no different.
However, the only way to accomplish a list of team goals is oftentimes to start at the individual level. Therefore, here is a preview of the primary goal that each member of the Buckeyes’ starting five should have for himself entering the 2012-13 season.
The starting five was taken from my earlier projection of what Thad Matta’s starting lineup will look like.
