Eventhough the Ohio State Buckeyes hockey team has gotten off to a solid start in the current CCHA season, the Michigan Wolverines is still the team to beat if they want to be league champions.

With Gordon “Red” Berensen on the bench since 1984, spanning 28 seasons and has a record of 743-346-75 and will always have the Wolverines in CCHA contention.

Michigan is working on a 22nd straight NCAA Tournament appearance.

Before a Friday night crowd of 9,828 at Value City Arena,  Michigan showed that they are the team to beat, by scoring twice in the first period on their way to a 4-0 win over the shocked Buckeyes.

Before the game, OSU was in first-place and ranked #2 in the nation.

The win by Michigan (13-8-4, 7-6-4-1 CCHA) have more experienced team than OSU, with 10 players on their roster who have been drafted by NHL teams.

Ohio State plays eight freshmen and are getting their feet wet with on-the-job-training in the rugged Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

Michigan, who got off to a slow start, has been playing well in its last eight games at 6-0-2. Ohio State, lost last weekend to Bowling Green in back-to-back shootouts.

WRIGHT STATE visits OHIO STATE: WSU’s Donlon ready to use own recruits in second season

The Wright State Raiders will try to upset the Ohio State Buckeyes when they travel to Columbus tonight for a Big Ten Network game at Value City Arena at 9 p.m.

The Raiders head coach Billy Donlon looks just as young as his players.

Only 34 years old, Donlon is a coach on the rise in just his second-year. He took over last season, when his mentor, Brad Brownell bolted for Clemson as soon as Oliver Purnell left to take the job at DePaul.

Donlon earned a 19-14 mark, 10-8 in the tough Horizon League, good for 5th-place.

This year, armed with many of his own recruits, he is looking to improve on those records of a year ago.

Some experts who cover the Horizon League feel that this is a rebuilding job for Donlon and his staff. The only returning starter is 6’8, 245-pound center Johann Mpondo, who takes up space in the middle, plays good defense and rebounds.

There are seven newcomers on the roster and one of those is North Carolina State transfer Julius Mays, who is a shooting guard with two years of eligibility left. He is much better than the 4.7 points per game he earned with the Wolfpack.

Junior college transfer John Balwigaire shot 44.o percent from three-point land last year.

The other two players who have experience under Donlon is Cole Darling and Matt Vest.

The Raiders usually are good for 15-20 wins a season. And with Donlon at the helm, he won’t settle for rebuilding.
