Buckeyes look forward to next year

It was only a couple years ago; Ohio State’s basketball program was spinning downward and in the news for allegations and possible suspensions. Jim O’Brien had taken the Buckeyes from the final four to an embarrassing low, as the papers were loaded with infractions and bad press for the Bucks program.
Ohio State fired O’Brien and hired the “Jim Tressel of basketball” in Thad Matta. Matta is a hard working, clean cut, emotional leader that has brought this program back to its feet in record time. The last two years, the Buckeyes have been playing solid basketball and exceeding every expectation, including capturing a Big Ten Championship this season. Coach Matta’s incoming class is loaded with talent and ranked as one of the best to ever hit the Ohio State hardwood. As we head into summer, it’s nice to see this talent from other states receiving all their accolades as they head to Columbus next season. There was a time when Ohio State couldn’t touch a recruit out of Indiana; with Matta those times have changed.
