COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Thad Matta is happy with his team. He is just not happy with how it is playing right now.
The Buckeyes are 11-0 against unranked teams but now stand 0-3 against Associated Press Top 25 teams after sustaining a 74-55 beating at No. 12 Illinois on Saturday.
The inability to beat elite teams has dropped the Buckeyes from No. 4 in the preseason to No. 15 in the latest media balloting.
The common denominator in all three losses was poor shooting by the Buckeyes. Compounding their misery in the loss to the Illini, they also were unfocused on defense and played sloppy with the ball.
Heading into Tuesday night's game at Purdue (7-7, 1-1), Matta may make some changes to his lineup in order to shake things up.
