In a sloppy game that saw the teams combined for 26 turnovers, Ohio State took down UMass Lowell 76-56 on Sunday.

Young is averaging just 22.5 minutes on the court through the first two games, but he leads the Buckeyes in a number of categories, including points, steals and blocks.

Meanwhile, Villanova took care of business in a 97-54 victory over Army in its only game this season. Four players scored in double digits for the Wildcats, led by freshman forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, who finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds. Sophomore forward Saddiq Bey also had a big day against the Black Knights, adding 22 points and five rebounds. The Wildcats will certainly be relying on their explosive young playmakers in a hostile road environment against a ranked opponent on Wednesday.

This should be a fun game to watch; both have the play makers to help each team make a run in the NCAA Tournament.  Jay Wright and Chris Holtmann are both great coaches as well.  These will be two teams, that don’t let the turnovers beat them in close games.  The Buckeyes have gotten off to a slow start in each of the first two games of the season.  This is a situation, where the Buckeyes cannot get off to a slow start, if they want to win at home.  Villanova has a little bit more fire power offensively then the Buckeyes do.  However, both teams are great defensively.  Both teams are giving up less than 56 points per game this year.  This should be a defensive battle all the way through.
