    Ayo Dosunmu withdrawing from NBA Draft.

    If we have college basketball this year, Illinois might be a good bet to win the B1G.

    Misspelled "Wisconsin".

    But alas, due to possible ties in league standings, I don't think you can bet on the regular season hoops champs of the B1G.

    Not sure if I agree with this writer's starting five for the Buckeyes come basketball season. Has Sueing as the starting SF with Ahrens as his backup. Has Towns as the starting PF with
    E.J. as the backup. I know it is a long way until basketball season but I think that there is no way you can definitively list Liddell as a backup. I think all three of those guys will probably share equal minutes and would not be surprised to see E.J. see the majority. I could also see him getting some minutes as Young's backup at the 5.

    High vote: 2nd | Low vote: 9th | Average rank: 6.5

    Last year's record: 21-10 overall (11-9 Big Ten)

    Key losses: C Kaleb Wesson (14.0 ppg, 9.3 rpg0 F Andre Wesson (9.2 ppg, 3.9 rpg), G D.J. Carton (10.4 ppg, 3.0 apg), F Alonzo Gaffney, G Luther Muhammad (7.0 ppg)

    Key returners: G Duane Washington Jr. (11.5 ppg), G C.J. Walker (8.7 ppg, 3.5 apg), F Kyle Young (7.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg), F E.J. Liddell (6.7 ppg, 3.8 rpg), F Justin Ahrens (2.9 ppg), C Ibrahima Diallo, G Musa Jallow (missed 2019-20 due to injury).

    Key additions: G-F Eugene Brown III (No. 134 composite), F Zed Key (No. 142 composite), F Seth Towns (Harvard transfer), F Justice Sueing (Cal transfer), G Abel Porter (Utah State transfer), G Jimmy Sotos (Bucknell transfer); must sit out this season).

    Comment: Ohio State will look a lot different in 2020-21 with the departure of top scorer and rebounder Kaleb Wesson, who left after three seasons to pursue the professional ranks. Washington moves into a highlight role at the two guard. Towns and Sueing each have double-digit scoring potential at the three, provided they are healthy. Young and Liddell figure to handle much of the work inside. But if Diallo and/or Key can help out it would be huge. Defense has been key for Ohio State under Chris Holtmann. This new group needs to embrace that mantra for this team to excel.

    I guess we're on to hoping we get a basketball season. I can easily see this getting pushed to January with some OOC games erased from the schedule.

    If the NBA completes its season successfully with very few COVID-19 cases, that would augur well for a college season. Players would need to be bubbled, though.
