One of the highlights for Ohio State basketball tonight came on the sideline, from head coach Thad Matta.
The Buckeyes trail Maryland 52-44 early in the second half, but Matta is on his game. During a team huddle, Matta lost the gum that he was chewing, but someone snagged it in mid-air and popped it back in his mouth without hesitation.
Those reactions are pretty impressive for the 49-year old.
It’s OK, Thad Matta, we’ve all done this. 😉 https://t.co/mNCJSQQhX0

Unfortunately for Matta, his team is not playing very well against the No. 17 Terrapins at home, despite sloppy play from Maryland star Melo Trimble.
