Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann and select Buckeyes players held a press conference with reporters after their win over Minnesota in the second round of the Big Ten Tournament.
Ohio State is the No. 5 seed in the Big Ten Tournament this week and will now move onto face No. 4-seed Purdue in the quarterfinal on Friday at about 2 p.m.
The Buckeyes dropped both games against the Boilermakers this season. Ohio State fell, 67-60, at Mackey Arena in December, and Purdue won 67-65 in late January at the Schottenstein Center.
â€œItâ€™s always something youâ€™re aware of,â€ Holtmann said of playing Purdue in the next round. â€œTheyâ€™re the only team to sweep us this year. It was a couple close games, particularly the one at our place with their freshman [Jaden] Ivey made a great play. Itâ€™s going to be a physical game, as it always is. Trevion [Williams] is a tremendous, tremendous player as is the big fella. Should be a great challenge for us here tomorrow.â€
