It seems safe to say that fans of the Ohio State Buckeyes basketball team are not taking their recent loss to Michigan in stride. Following Tuesday's 65-49 loss at the Crisler Center, the mother of one of Ohio State's top players had some harsh words for the hosting Wolverines.

Stephanie Wesson, the mother of Ohio State sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson and junior forward Andre Wesson, took to Twitter after the game and openly complained about the Michigan student section.

Wesson accused the students of a variety of disrespectful behaviors including spitting, cursing, and throwing things at the Ohio State players.

She also called out the Michigan administration for allowing the behavior, and added that it was the second straight year she had experienced it.

"I have NEVER seen more disrespectful student section than Michigan. WOW spitting, cussing, throw foam lights at the guest team. Horrible and the administration allows this type of behavior. This is the second year in a row that I have witnessed this," she tweeted.

The 49 points scored by the Buckeyes was their lowest output in years.

Kaleb Wesson led the team with 12 points - the fewest by any leading scorer in an Ohio State game this season.

The loss was Ohio State's sixth in their last seven games, and has dropped them to a 13-7 record with a 3-6 conference record.
