Last year Ohio State didn't make the NCAA Tourney and didn't go far in the NIT. This year after graduating 0 players the Buckeyes are poised to shock some teams and finish as high as 2nd and no lower than 6th in the Big Ten and get back into the NCAA Tourney. The Buckeyes return lead scorers Marc Loving(14 ppg), Keita Bates-Diop(12 ppg), Jae'Sean Tate(12 ppg) and JaQuan Lyle(11 ppg). The Buckeyes lost Daniel Giddens, A.J Harris, Austin Grandstaff and Mickey Mitchell who all transferred but gain 4-star recruits Derek Funderburk and Micah Potter. Expect the Buckeyes to make some noise this year.
