Ohio State hasn't lost at home since last March, and its three-game homestand this week should give the Buckeyes ample opportunity to gain some momentum.

Ohio State's three-game home stand, and the competition it stands to face, could not come at a better time as the Buckeyes look for consistency.

29.4%Of course, four of Ohio State’s home opponents this season have been mid-major programs. But even when you throw those games out, the Buckeyes still average almost six more points at home with a field goal percentage that’s nearly 5 percent higher. Ohio State has actually held Duke and the three Big Ten opponents it has played at home to a lower combined shooting percentage than the eight-game home average, and that is also true of the 3-point shooting numbers.

When the Buckeyes take on IUPUI Tuesday, Ohio State will get a Horizon League opponent that is just 1-14 on the season and has scored fewer than 50 points in six games this season. When Nebraska comes to town four days later, Ohio State will get the last-place team in the Big Ten (0-7 in conference play), though it did take the Buckeyes to overtime earlier this month.
