Columbus is buzzing about this year's Buckeye basketball team. They are now 22-0 after squeaking past a pesky Northwestern Wildcats team in Evanston.
The whole country is talking about a balanced attack that is getting better as the season progresses.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are more than just football. Thad Matta has established a basketball powerhouse on the banks of the Olentangy. One has to wonder how good this team may prove to be.
There has been a long line of basketball greats from the Ohio State University. Few people know that. Many have forgotten, but the Ohio State University is also a basketball school.
Our compiled list is to commemorate some of those great players and their achievements. Please keep in mind this is a writer's opinion and based on the player's overall basketball prowess and skill. What intangibles did he bring to the game? What is his basketball IQ? Would he enjoy success in today's game?
I have not included current players or players that have moved on to the league the last three or four seasons. It is a little too soon to see what impact these players will have on the game of basketball. But this allows them to set a goal: They can set their sights on becoming a Buckeye basketball immortal.
Are you ready?
Here's the list.
