Ohio State’s basketball program is deep with history and tradition. The Buckeyes have seen many players go on to join the NBA ranks after claiming Big Ten titles. This historic program has only one national championship to its name, which came in 1960.
Ohio State has been close several times since, but has never been able to achieve the ultimate achievement again. This doesn’t take away from the programs prestige, but adds focus to its current players. Being great at Ohio State has already be done, to set themselves apart from players past have to go above what has already been accomplished.
