    Wow, I did not recall Campbell ever scoring 20+ points in the pros, but I do recall him being a very tough, undersized PF at Ohio STate. Probably the first star I ever remember from Ohio State basketball when he played along with Ronnie Stokes and Troy Taylor.

    A Tie at No. 8: Kelvin Ransey and Tony Campbell


    1. Tony Campbell came to Ohio State with a "scorer's mentality"—he never saw a shot he didn't like!

      Tony had God-given ability, and he wasn't shy about displaying it. At 6'7" with a muscular build, he was a handful to defend. He wore the scarlet and gray from 1980-1984.

      He entered the NBA in 1984 as a first-round selection of the Detroit Pistons. He played 11 years in the league and averaged over 11 ppg.

      Last we heard Tony was coaching high school ball in his hometown of Teaneck, New Jersey.

    Wish nothing but the best for Tony, he was truly a great player here that doesn't get the "pub" that he deserves.

    Maybe Script, or any other poster can help me with this one. I vividly remember watching a Buckeyes game where the announcer referred to Tony as "Vince Campbell" for the entire game. I couldn't for the life of me say who the game was against but I beleive it was Tony's senior year in a Big Ten game on ESPN. I'd Love to hear from anyone who remembers this.

    He remembers Bobby Knight's 2-3 zone? Methinks the old memory chip might need a reboot . . .

    TONY CAMPBELL - 1983-84
    Out of Teaneck, New Jersey, Tony Campbell arrived at Ohio State as a prototype small forward capable of scoring in a variety of ways.

    Entering his junior season, big things were expected from Campbell after a sophomore campaign in which the first-year starter averaged 12.8 points and 5.0 rebounds per night.

    Campbell would deliver as a junior, averaging team highs in points (19.0) and rebounds (8.3) while shooting a respectable 50.3% from the floor to earn first-team All-Big Ten honors.

    Across a five-game stretch early in the non-conference slate, he hit Florida for 28 points in an 80-74 win, contributed 22 points, 10 boards and four steals in a double-overtime loss to West Virginia and tossed in 23 points in a tough loss to Syracuse. He'd back up those outings with 20 points and seven boards against Youngstown State before capping the run with 28 points and 10 rebounds in an 88-77 win over Arizona State.

    Campbell didn't just pick on non-conference foes. Early in the conference schedule he put up 23 points and eight rips as part of a 40-minute effort against Michigan. A few games later, he gave Minnesota a preview of a historical night to come with 22 points and 17 rebounds.

    Less than a week later, he kicked off a three-game stretch with 23 points in a four-point win over Wisconsin and backed it up with 37 points and 11 rebounds against the shell-shocked Gophers. Campbell shot 14-of-26 from the floor and 9-of-9 from the stripe on the night. A few days later, he dropped 21 on Northwestern, keeping Ohio State on a modest winning streak.

    Toward the back-end of the conference slate, Campbell logged 55 minutes in a triple-overtime loss to Michigan State, scoring 29 points and adding eight rebounds.

    Standing at 19-9, Ohio State earned an NCAA Tournament bid and Campbell promptly led the Buckeyes to a revenge-win over Syracuse, 79-74. Despite fouling out after logging just 23 minutes, Campbell led Ohio State with 17 points and nine rebounds.

    The tournament victory was the program's first since 1980 (Arizona State) and the third since 1971 (Marquette).

    The Buckeyes would lose to North Carolina to end the season at 20-10, marking just the third time in 12 seasons the program reached the 20-win plateau.
