The Ohio State Buckeye have so far had little trouble in dispatching all-comers, but this week may bring their toughest game yet as they travel to Allen Fieldhouse to take on Kansas. The Jayhawks have one of the nation's most feared home courts. Until a lost to Texas last season the Jayhawks had a 69-game home winning streak, so the Buckeyes will face a very difficult test on Saturday. that game is their lone game this week, but it carries a 3:15 p.m. tipoff on ESPN.
After starting Horizon League play with two nice wins the Cleveland State Vikings step back out of conference this week. Cleveland State will head to Robert Morris on Thursday before hosting Akron on Saturday. The game with Akron carries a 2 p.m. local tipoff, and is the only game for the Zips this week.
Kent State will try to keep its hot 5-1 start going as they head to James Madison on Tuesday and Western Carolina on Saturday.
