Photo: Thad Matta Promised His Ohio State Team An NBA Jam Arcade Game For A Winning Streak, He Delivered Today

Ohio State's new NBA Jam arcade game.

No Big Ten men's basketball team has been playing better of late than Ohio State. The Buckeyes (17-5, 6-3 Big Ten) have won three straight games, including back-to-back comfortable wins against two ranked foes in Indiana and Maryland. 

We now know why Thad Matta's team has been performing at such a high level. The Ohio State coach promised his team an NBA Jam arcade game for their players' lounge in exchange for a win streak. 

The Buckeyes are on a winning streak, so Matta delivered the game Friday. 

Is there a better arcade game than NBA Jam?


Ohio State faces Purdue at Mackey Arena next Wednesday.
