Andre Wesson Becomes A Buckeye
WessonAndWesson

Ohio State signs Andre Wesson; Andre Wesson has officially signed his letter-of-intent to become an Ohio State Buckeye, choosing them over Richmond and Butler.

Talent runs in the family of the 6-7 Wesson with his brother being the 6-10, 290 lbs., Kaleb Wesson. In fact the brothers' father is Keith Wesson - a former Buckeye himself in the mid-1980s.

Andre's prospects were boosted by a stellar senior year as part of the Westerville South team that won the Division 1 State championship with a 26-4 season. He was honored with being voted player of the year in the Ohio Capital Conference after a game average of 17.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

Ohio State Basketball Scoop

OhioStateBasketball

Non-conference Schedule

The 2016-17 non-conference schedule for Ohio State Basketball was released on Tuesday.

The Ohio State Basketball squad has the entire starting lineup returning from the 2015-16 season. Last year's disappointing performance culminated in an NIT invite. This year's team will have the opportunity to avenge 2 of their losses in non-conference suffered last season.

Ohio State's non-conference schedule has some of the same teams from last year. For the second year in a row, the Bucks face Virginia from the Big Ten/ACC challenge. They travel to play the Cavaliers on the 30Th of November. Additionally, they host Connecticut on Dec. 10Th, which is the second game of a home-and-home contest against the UConn Huskies.

Evan Turner's Jersey Hung At The Jerome Schottenstein Center

EvanTurner

History was made on Tuesday night as Evan Turner became the fifth ex-Buckeye to have his jersey hoisted into the rafters at the Jerome Schottenstein Center. It joins John Havlicek's, John Lucas's, Gary Bradds's, and Jim Jackson's in receiving this honor. The ceremony took place as the Buckeyes played (and beat) the Michigan Wolverines, a very fitting opponent to celebrate Turner's college career. Indeed, his dramatic buzzer-beating three-pointer in the quarterfinals of the 2010 Big Ten Tournament is perhaps the defining moment of the 2010 National Player of the Year's Buckeyes career.

You might think that the ideal opponent was planned, but it was not. Turner currently plays for the NBA's Boston Celtics, meaning that he could only personally attend the ceremony during the NBA All-Star Break. The Buckeyes only had one home game during the NBA break, and it was the luck of the draw that it happened to be against Michigan.

Daniel Giddens To Join The Ohio State Men's Basketball Team

EXCLUSIVErun15

Daniel Giddens is to join the recruiting class of the 2015 Ohio State Men's basketball team. The coach has a history of recruiting basketball team hopefuls by taking them to the university's football games. With this approach, the potential new players can experience the dedication of the Buckeyes fans.

Giddens had already made his official campus visit after committing to becoming the fourth new recruit on the basketball team. He visited on June 27th through the 29th with his family. He felt it was the perfect time to see the team's summer training regimen. He decided to visit the school over the summer because it made for a more private, low-key atmosphere.

It has taken almost a decade, but finally there was an NBA draft yesterday, that did not call a player from Ohio State.

Both LaQuinton Ross (small forward) and Aaron Craft (point guard) were left out of the sixty players chosen over a couple of rounds.

Each player is likely to enroll with a squad on a freelance basis, to participate in the July NBA summer tournament, and attempt to gain an invite to a squad's pre season training base.

Key OSU Basketball Player Did Not Start Classes

DAngelo Russell

D'Angelo Russell is a freshman who was supposed to start on the front lineup and have a starting position with the Ohio State men's basketball team. Although he should have been starting with the team, D'Angelo Russell was not able to begin classes this summer at Ohio State.

Russell is considered the highest rated freshman out of all the incoming new freshmen to join Ohio State men's basketball team.

Russell was unable to begin this summer term because his high school transcripts were not cleared. The NCAA Eligibility Center confirms that they still need to receive his standardized test scores.

Ohio State Defeats Northwestern In More Than One Way

Ohio State Defeats Northwestern In More Than One Way

The Northwestern team experienced more than one loss when Ohio State overpowered them by winning 76-60. They suffered an additional loss when the officials tossed Nikola Cerina, the backup center, out of the game and suspended him for a wild punch.

Usually, it is Alex Olah who receives the spotlight. Nikola Cerina, who occasionally backs him up, only plays on an as-needed basis.

On this night however, Cerina finally received the attention that his teammate receives regularly. With six minutes left in the game, he gets into a shoving match with Amir Williams. When the official blows the whistle, Cerina swings and nearly hits Williams with a wild punch.

Michigan State is nearing a game with this season's second top-five matchup. Their coach, Tom Izzo, hopes they'll approach the game right. He admitted that he'd be disappointed if they treated it like just another game. Yet, he went on to say that he also doesn't want it to be their year's biggest game since there's going to be a lot of big games this year.

The Michigan State Spartans are ranked number 5 and will be hosting Ohio State basketball, which is ranked number 3, on Tuesday night. The game's winner will move into first place by half a point.
