Current Records: Towson 6-3; Ohio State 6-2
What to Know
The Towson Tigers are staying on the road on Wednesday to face off against the #21 Ohio State Buckeyes at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 8 at Value City Arena. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.
The Tigers didn’t have too much trouble with the Kent State Golden Flashes on the road on Monday as they won 73-58.
Meanwhile, the Penn State Nittany Lions typically have all the answers at home, but on Sunday OSU proved too difficult a challenge. OSU strolled past Penn State with points to spare, taking the game 76-64. OSU can attribute much of their success to forward Kyle Young, who had 16 points in addition to seven rebounds. Young hadn’t helped his team much against the Duke Blue Devils last week, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Young’s points were the most he has had all season.
Towson have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 14 point spread they are up against. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-0 against the spread when expected to lose.
The Tigers are now 6-3 while the Buckeyes sit at 6-2. Towson is 2-3 after wins this year, OSU 3-2.
