Iowa travels to Columbus, OH and meets Greg Oden; Frosh abuses the Hawks, dunks ensue, Iowa's streakiness continues

Just like the Illinois game in Champaign-Urbana, Iowa's opponent on Saturday was rude to the rim. Value City Arena was the host of yet another dunkfest courtesy of Iowa's lack of interior defense. Freshman Greg Oden abused the rim on a constant basis in the second half of the ballgame.

Surprisingly, Iowa's Seth Gorney was able to do an average job against Oden in the first half. Unfortunately after taking a charge from Conley Jr., Seth wasn't able to return to the floor. Ohio State capitalized on Gorney's absence. Fouls began to mount up on the Iowa bigs, and being down a player on an already below average front court was too much to make up. I, for one, was astounding that Gorney's presence would turn out to be a turning point in the ballgame. Looby, Angle, and Tate were no match for Oden down low. After holding Oden to 11 and 5 in the first half (I say hold will complete seriousness in my tone), Oden exploded in the second half with 18 and 5 (8 for 8 from the field and most of the FGs being huge two handed Shaq-esque dunks).

Going into the ballgame, I assumed that Oden would be able to put 20 and 10 against Iowa. He finished the game with a career high 29 points, and added 10 boards. While Oden did lead the team with 4 turnovers, he was clearly the reason Ohio State won (and handily at that). The Buckeyes' perimeter shooting was horrid (2-12 in the first half, 6-20 in the game), but Oden was there to take the game into his own hands.

While I have not been a big fan of Oden (I still feel he isn't the best freshman on his own team and isn't as complete as Durant from Texas), he was able to prove to me that he's an absolutely force in college basketball. A game like the one played on Saturday magnified Oden's game primarily because Iowa's front court is one of the worst in the Big Ten.

That said, Iowa was very much in this ballgame with 13 minutes to go, but then Oden went off. The score wasn't indicative of how competitive the game was for 30 minutes (yes, I realize games are 40 minutes and that's what counts).

STICKIES OF THE GAME (stats from the game that stick out at me):
  • Points off turnovers-IOWA 8, OSU 21 *
  • Bench points-IOWA 9, OSU 24
  • Points in the paint-IOWA 26, OSU 46
  • Ohio State: 25-33 from 2 pt FG range
  • Conley, Jr. had 10 assist, dude is crazy good
  • Iowa outrebounded Ohio State
* - Stat of the Game

IOWA'S STREAKINESS IN OFFENSIVE PRODUCTION CONTINUED ON SATURDAY NIGHT.

During their 8-0 run early in the first half, they made 3 field goals in 1 minute, 31 seconds.
The last 8:21 of the first half, Iowa only made 3 field goals, yet they had 5 turnovers in the same amount of time. Ohio State's lead went from 4 to 11. See below.
