The Moment That Changed Everything for a Rising College Basketball Program with Thad Matta

The place was Coach Thad Matta’s house. The date was March 4, 2005. It was two days before Ohio State was to take on the undefeated and number-one team in the nation, the Illinois Fighting Illini. No one gave the Buckeyes a chance. But it was in Coach Matta’s house on that day that the coaches knew they needed to have a winning mindset. And then two days later, late in the game, the Buckeyes had a decision. To go for the tie or to go for the win… the rest as they say is history. And this short episode, featuring then Buckeyes’ Assistant Coach Alan Major and Head Coach Thad Matta, talks about this moment that changed everything for the Thad Matta-led Ohio State Buckeyes basketball program.

(a quick ask: a review on Apple Podcasts or Spotify goes a long way!)
