Can the Ohio State Buckeyes Win Without Evan Turner?

Evan Turner will be out eight weeks with two cracked vertebrae. Turner was averaging over 18 points a game and 11 rebounds.

Turner is a game changer. Opponents had to pay special attention to him, which created open looks for other players. His ability to rebound and create plays will be missed. Still, the Buckeyes have encountered injuries in the past and rebounded well.

Can other Buckeyes step up and keep this team going in Turner's absence?

Turner will miss the Buckeyes' showdown with No. 20 ranked Butler this Saturday, as well as the first month of Big Ten play. Expect other Buckeyes like P. J. Hill , Jon Diebler , and David Lighty to step up. Each brings capable skills to the table and can keep the Buckeyes a contender while Turner heals.
