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.

Ohio State Basketball In The NCAA Tournament

Ohio State basketball has made their presence known in the NCAA tournament by consistently having games go down to the wire.  The March 28th tilt against Arizona proved no different, as the Buckeyes downed the Wildcats by a slim margin of 73 to 70.  Ohio State has won each game by last-second shots, this time proving triumphant due to power forward LaQuinton Ross's stunning three-point shot with only two seconds left on the clock. 

Ohio State and Arizona entered the game as familiar foes.  OSU coach Thad Matta and Arizona coach Sean Miller both worked together at Miami of Ohio in the 1990s, both working their way up to the ranks of NCAA basketball head coaches.  Most recently, the two coaches faced each other in 2007 when Miller was at Xavier University.  For this tilt in the West Region bracket in Los Angeles, both teams entered the Sweet Sixteen hoping to punch a ticket to the Elite Eight. 

The crowd in Staples Center -- home of the Los Angeles Lakers, Clippers, and Kings -- was firmly behind the Arizona Wildcats, with only a token cluster of scarlet-and-gray Buckeye fans representing.  The crowd may have energized the Wildcats, since they had a more impressive first period than their adversaries.  The 'cats led by four points at the first buzzer, with shooting guard Mark Lyons scoring ten points.  They capitalized each time on Ohio State's five turnovers.

The second half, however, as a different story entirely.  Ohio State began with a ten-zero run, keeping the Wildcats scoreless for more than five minutes of possession.  Once the Buckeyes had their lead, they kept pushing strong and did not let Arizona back into the game.  Though they tied the game at seventy in the dying seconds thanks to a Lyon foul throw, the OSU buzzer-beater sent the Wildcats home and the Buckeyes into the next phase of the NCAA tournament.
