The Buckeyes lost two games this year and they were both road games to Wisconsin and to Purdue. In the game against Wisconsin, the Badgers rallied from a deficit behind a strong scoring performance by Jordan Taylor.
The Wildcats have a very talented point guard in Brandon Knight that can carry the Wildcats, much like Taylor did in the victory over Ohio State. If strong guard play is a weakness of the Buckeyes, the Wildcats have it covered.
The Badgers also shared the scoring load. Mike Bruesewitz and Jon Leuer scored 12 points apiece, while freshman Josh Gasser added 11 for Wisconsin. The Wildcats can get scoring from anywhere on the floor and they have the ability to spread the ball around. This could be a winning recipe for taking down the Buckeyes.
Those losses for the Buckeyes could be forgotten, considering they were on the road against teams that had no losses at home and were in-conference.
Let’s move onto other reasons why the Wildcats could upset the Buckeyes.
