Ohio State vs. Rhode Island: Buckeyes look to improve to 2-0 Saturday

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

On Saturday, the Ohio State Buckeyes will look to improve to 2-0 when they play Rhode Island in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic in Connecticut. The Buckeyes beat Albany 82-60 in their only game of the regular season.

With just one game played so far this, Ohio State fans still aren't exactly sure what to make of the 2012-2013 Buckeyes basketball team. They should have a better idea after Saturday, when Ohio State matches up with Rhode Island in the first round of the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Classic in Connecticut.

Saturday's game should be a good barometer for the Buckeyes, who sole regular season game so far was an 82-60 victory last Sunday over Albany. Junior guard Aaron Craft led the Buckeyes with 20 points and seven assists in the win, while fellow junior Deshaun Thomas added 19 points as well. The victory came just two days after Ohio State's season-opening game against Marquette was cancelled due to condensation on the outdoor court in Charleston, S.C.

Meanwhile, Rhode Island enters Saturday's game struggling, and is still looking for their first win of the season. The Rams are off to an 0-2 start, with losses to Norfolk State at home and Virginia Tech on the road.

Saturday's game is scheduled for a 4 p.m. CT tip-off and can be seen on ESPN3.
