Ohio State Heartbreak

Author: Ainsley Gibbs

When someone mentions Ohio State on campus, the topic is met with a despondent grunt and an ashamed shake of the head.

A heroic performance from Bischel put the Irish one win away from the Big Ten Tournament semifinals and, likely, a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
