Stay another year Evan-perhaps OSU will manage to sell out at least one game legitimately next year. You deserved better support than what you received. Congrats to you and to the Buckeyes for a wonderful season.

I hope they will display these trophies somewhere in the Value City Arena where the fans can see them. Evan, did you rent a Uhaul to bring these trophies back?

Congrats Evan!!!! While I would love to see you back in scarlet and gray next season, man go pro. You broke your back this year, while these years are great, I wouldn't trade my four years at tOSU for anything, but I never had the guarantee of millions. Again, I would love for the entire starting five to be back, especially with the upcoming class, but let's be honest, Evan go and make your money and make OSU proud.

How sweet for the Basketball Buckeyes having the 2010 Naismith Award winner on the Collegiate Level in Evan Turner and the 2010 Naismith award winner on the High School level with Jared Sullinger from Columbus Northland HS ... Go Bucks !

Why so many of these awards? It is worse than Hollywood having awards banquets every two weeks congratulating themselves. So how about an award to Diebler for the CHOKER OF THE YEAR with his 3 points, 0 rebounds, 0 assists in the Tennessee game?

The only two time Naismith award winner sound good, ET? Put you in an elite position. Final four, national champions. Plus, get your degree.

GO BUCKS!!!!!

Without Diebler, OSU wouldn't have reached the Tennessee game.

Uh, he actually could get it in the offseason if he wanted it that bad. And the importance of an OSU undergrad degree to Evan Turner's future is real debatable.

Diebler didnt choke. Jerk. Tennessee took away his shot, and unlike Turner, he is not mobile. All players have their limitations. Diebler also didnt "lose" a game in which Ohio State gave up 50 points in the paint and way too many easy baskets.

Go watch the Nets. Then you will get the true definition of choke.
