Ohio State continues to be ranked 7th in the latest Associated Press and Coaches’ Polls.
How have they gotten there? Well, heading into the week, they were ranked:
21st in Scoring Offense
24th in Scoring Defense
9th in Assist to Turnover Ratio
31st in Field-Goal Percentage
23rd in Field-Goal Percentage Defense
22nd in Rebounding Margin
19th in Three-Point Shooting Percentage
24th in Turnover Margin
Deshaun Thomas is 19th nationally in points per game, and guess who’s tied for 25th in steals per game?
Nope. Guess again.
Shannon Scott averages 2.56 thefts every time out.
Of course, outside of the Buckeyes road game against Duke, their biggest challenges still await them.
