Savannah State vs. Ohio State: Game time, TV schedule, and preview

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Continuing a lengthy home stand that stretches into January, the Buckeyes host the Savannah State Tigers on Wednesday night.

The Ohio State Buckeyes host the Savannah State Tigers on Wednesday night as their lengthy home stand continues from Value City Arena. Since losing to the Duke Blue Devils in Durham, N.C., on Nov. 28, the Buckeyes have won a pair of home games against lesser opponents, Northern Kentucky and Long Beach State.

At 6-1 this season, the Buckeyes have mostly played well this season, but that loss to Duke is the team's only scheduled road game until Jan. 5, when they head to Champaign, Ill., to play the Illinois Illini. With only home games in December and the game against Kansas being the lone top-25 clash, the road is relatively smooth until Big Ten play begins.

In Savannah State, the Buckeyes will be facing one of the weakest offensive teams in the country. The Tigers currently average just 54.1 points per game, 343rd in the nation, and their overall shooting percentage from the field is a subpar 40.1 percent.

The Tigers are still above .500 this season thanks to solid rebounding and defense, but their wins haven't exactly come against quality opponents. In their one other game against a ranked opponent this year, the Tigers got crushed by then-No. 7 Florida, 58-40.
