Matta, OSU hoops continue to grow

The Ohio State basketball program is giving football a run for their money in popularity and “big name” signings. Last year Coach Thad Matta came through with his promise to bring Buckeye hoops into the national spotlight by having the number one recruiting class in the country.

This year Coach Matta continues to have success, ranking number four in the country for 2007. The recent signing of Solon basketball standout Dallas Lauderdale has the Buckeyes excited for many years to come. This is a switch from the past, as Ohio would watch hometown talent leave the state for Indiana, Duke or North Carolina.

Coach Matta and football Coach Jim Tressel give Ohio State a combination of class and coaching that may be the best in the country.
