    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    So, how pumped will this fan base be if this kid comes in and really turns some heads?

    I think he has the potential.

    Everyone expects a down year. And w/ all the talent gone it surely will be compared to last season. But it doesn't have to be a wasted season at all. And I don't expect it to be. This dude could surprise some people.

    I've been working my way up to saying this, but with all the focus on Luther coming in and grabbing a spot or rotational minutes, I've really been going back and watching Duane Washington's film, and he may be the guy to grab those back up pg minutes because I believe he has the skill to do so and at 6-3ish maybe 6-4 he has the potential to do some things we haven't seen dne here since D-Lo he can post up smaller guards, see over defenses and he's a good enough athlete to go down hill and draw fouls when we need it...idk but he's one to look out for for certain

    Dude is a legit outside shooter too so if he gets in a rhythm early and starts knocking down shots he will certainly have his opportunity.

    OHIO STATE'S FRESHMEN GUARDS PLAY WELL BEYOND THEIR YEARS IN EMOTIONAL WIN OVER CINCINNATI

    During his press conference after the Ohio State basketball recruiting class of 2018 signed their letters of intent, Chris Holtmann had some strong words regarding guards Luther Muhammad and Duane Washington.

    “Duane is a prolific shooter,” Holtmann said about Washington. “He’s a very capable shooter. He’s high level when it comes to that. He can make plays with the ball in his hands, and he can facilitate for others.”

    Holtmann also had something to add on Muhammad. “Luther’s versatility defensively is terrific. I really believe he can guard three positions for sure. [Muhammad and Washington] complement each other very well I think, because we obviously anticipate playing the two of them together quite a bit."

    The two guards were at the epicenter of the action on Wednesday night, when Ohio State traveled the 90 minutes down I-71 and defeated the Cincinnati Bearcats 64-56.

    Of course, this was not an ordinary game. Cincinnati was opening the remodeled Fifth Third Arena, and the arena was at full capacity for what was the first matchup between these schools on a campus since 1920.

    Cincinnati, despite losing three of their top four scorers from a year ago, still came into the season with lofty expectations, with AAC coaches predicting the Bearcats to finish second in the conference.

    In addition, Ohio State came in to the game as 5.5 point underdogs, according to Vegas Insider.

    It makes it all the more impressive then to learn that Muhammad and Washington combined for 48 minutes with just one turnover.



    Washington, while not scoring (he had just three points in 19 minutes) still played a very effective game, recording four rebounds, playing solid defense, and most importantly not turning the ball over.

    Also, he too seems to have quite the competitive spirit, encouraging former Buckeyes star Evan Turner to put some respect on his name.

    Coming into the season, the expectations for Ohio State basketball were fairly low. If their freshman guards continue to grow, however, we may have another surprise on our hands.

    kid has some tools and a size advantage at his position, if he continues to grow I like what he brings to the table... he could be the steal of his class

    Going to be the player we thought Buford would be. Same smoothness but more energy out of him and that quick release is smooth.

    He might be more fun to watch on the bench than in the game. A big bundle of energy and charisma. After Ledee got called for a foul, he was immediately over to give him a hug and pick him up. He will be a leader on this team.

    Well the nutrition and strength program looks better then it was under Matta. There were a few that were jacked like lightly but most of players over the years didn't have much muscle tone and always looked like they could use more time in the gym
