Ohio State has looked good in winning its first two games, but that may not be good enough when the No. 16 Buckeyes host tenth-ranked Villanova on Wednesday in Columbus.

Despite home victories of 64-56 over Cincinnati and 76-56 against the University of Massachusetts Lowell, Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann is concerned about the Buckeyes' slow starts.

They went nearly eight minutes without scoring against their in-state rival and Sunday fell behind 6-0 nearly four minutes into the UMass Lowell game.
