Aaron, you will have had the pleasure of playing with three great senior leaders and I hope you will be at OSU to have been the same thing for the in coming classes! Congrats on your first regular season!Keep up the intensity!

Aaron Craft keeps getting better and better. He's well on his way to becoming one of the best point guards in the country in the next few years.

WOW....what a great job Buckeyes!! I will say, I have never been much of a basketball fan. OSU football is what I love but this team this year is just so fun to watch. What a treat. I got my dad a ticket for the Big 10 tourney for his birthday this weekend. We are so looking forward to watching the Buckeyes take the trophey home! GO BUCKEYES and keep up the great work!

Craft absolutely manhandled Taylor. Great gameplan, it worked out well.

These kids took this game in a very personal fashion. They played angry throughout the game and everytime Wisconsin cut the lead to 9 or 10 it seemed to make them mad! Here's to Purdue advancing to the the Big 10 Championship game so we can exact revenge on them as well.

Moreover, although I hope this doesn't happen some pundits are suggesting that Jared won't be named Big 10 player of the year and he'll be the only Buckeye on the conferences first team which is an abomination. I'm not greedy, but Craft is the conferences best sixth man and he deserves at least a second team all conference award. And Diebler, Buford, Ligthly and Sullinger all deserve to be on the conferences first or second team. And Thad should be coach of the year, but pundits are projecting that we'll get 2 players and that b/c of the injury to Hummel, Matt Painter is the coach of the year. This is a travesty if it happens.

Why exact revenge on Florida?

I thought we beat them.

Johnson should be the Big Ten POY. I would love for Sullinger to get it, but Johnsons stats and case is better. Jared went through a stretch where his averages dropped. The entire starting team plus Craft deserves to be on the Big 10 conference team, but who knows if it will happen. Thad deserves COY. Everyone says Painter deserves it because they lost Hummel and are still 25-6. Thad lost National POY Evan Turner and they are 29-2 and ranked #1 in the country. How is that not more impressive?

I think Craft could stick around all four years and be the type of leader Dave Lighty has been. They play very similar games and have similar attitudes on and off the court. I love this kid.

Great game by everyone. Craft played much better (fighting over the top of screens instead of going under) but defense is a team thing and the rest of the team really helped shut down all the Badger.
