07:34 AM ET 01.01 | No. 3 Ohio State opened its conference season on New Year's Eve with a 78-69 win at Purdue. The Buckeyes don't have much size up front. Amir Williams has played well this season, but it has come against mediocre competition. Against an NBA caliber big man like [A.J. Hammons], Williams managed to stay on the court for all of 14 minutes because of foul trouble. ... [Backup Trey McDonald] managed all of seven minutes against the Boilermakers. Sam Thompson and Marc Loving, the only other two players on the roster that can be considered front court players, played a combined 34 minutes off the bench. All told, Ohio State's four "bigs" committed 13 fouls in 55 minutes. What happens when Ohio State plays against the likes of Frank Kaminsky or Adreian Payne? What about an Elite 8 matchup with the likes of Julius Randle?

Yea, the Buckeyes are only 13-0. The only team to hold all opponents to less than 70 points. Hate on 'em, hate on 'em!!
