COLUMBUS, Ohio - The Buckeyes are back in action Wednesday night at home against Penn State (7 p.m. EST - Big Ten Network) after having an extended break from games since the win at home on the 23rd against Illinois. The win against the Illini snapped a four-game losing streak and helped lift the spirits of a team that was going in the wrong direction.

Few of the Buckeyes, if any, have ever experienced a four-game losing streak so this has been a learning experience but not anything that any of them want to go back and relive and a win against Penn State on Wednesday will give the Buckeyes their first winning streak since the start of Big Ten play as a tough road trip sits on the horizon.

We talked with Thad Matta, Amir Williams and Marc Loving on Tuesday to get their thoughts on that and much more and have some highlights from their meeting with the local media.
