    Little brother might be a better post defender then big brother. This probably will come in helpful with the Potter defection.

    buckeyes_rock Great day to be a Buckeye

    I continue to be impressed with Andre. When he first signed, I didn't see him as a BIG level guy but he proves his worth every game. Dude gives such great effort and always seems to come up with a timely bucket or two.

    Ohio State men’s basketball | Notebook: Andre Wesson loses three teeth in Bucknell win
    By Adam Jardy

    The most important thing to get out there following No. 15 Ohio State’s win against Bucknell is that Andre Wesson is fine.

    When the junior forward went mouth-first into the court at Value City Arena early in the second half Saturday afternoon, he immediately started to kick the floor in obvious pain. Once play stopped, he was eventually helped to his feet and immediately taken into the locker room.

    The news was gnarly: three missing teeth for the oldest Wesson brother. As postgame interviews were conducted, he was already at the dentist after having played with a protective mouthguard for the remainder of the game.

    Once it was established that he was fine, a little levity was allowed. Younger brother Kaleb, who had a double-double with a career-high 22 points and 10 rebounds, was dismissive in a way only brothers can be.

    “He’s going to be good,” he said. “Ain’t nothing wrong with him.”

    So this wasn’t the first time he’d had teeth knocked out? The backyard battles between the brothers are the stuff of local legend.

    “Oh, we’ve both lost teeth before,” he said. “He lost teeth at (Westerville) South. Oh yeah, he’s cool.”

    Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann said his first concern, even as he realized what had happened, was about Andre Wesson’s well-being.

    “Really at that point, I’m worried, does he have a concussion? How’s his neck?” Holtmann said. “At that point you go beyond the teeth, the cosmetic stuff that’s going to happen. It’s, ‘OK, does he have all his faculties, is he feeling OK?’ Once we figured that out, then we could look for the teeth.”

    They didn’t have to look far for one of them.

    “I thought it was one (tooth),” Holtmann said. “I didn’t know it was three. I thought it was one because I grabbed one of them on the floor when I was out there. I actually stepped on it, so I apologize for that. I grabbed it and gave it to Jeff (Deits, the athletic trainer).”

    After going to the locker room, Andre Wesson returned to the game after missing 3:08 of action. He finished with a career-high nine rebounds and added four points and two assists in 28:23 and actually scored the first two baskets of the game for the Buckeyes. Both of them were assisted by his brother.

    Holtmann lauded the fact that he came back into the game and played as much as he did.

    “Andre Wesson’s a tough kid and he wanted to come back and play,” the coach said. “That’s why I love Andre as a kid. That’s why I love him. I’d go to war with that dude, go to battle with that dude any day because he competes on the defensive end and he’s got a real toughness to him. It’s one of the things I really love about him – both he and his brother are really tough kids.”

    As further evidence of his affection for the junior, Holtmann offered the fact that he picked up his whole tooth off the court.

    “I’m a bit of a germophobe, so that shows how much affection I have for Andre,” he said.

    I do not think that I would have returned to the game if I have lost 1 tooth to the floor yet to lose 3. Props to Andre for returning to the game.

    ANDRE WESSON WILL PLAY AGAINST YOUNGSTOWN STATE AFTER GETTING THREE TEETH KNOCKED OUT VS. BUCKNELL
    By James GregaDecember 17, 2018 (4:38 pm)Basketball, James Grega

    Andre Wesson isn’t expected to miss any time, despite missing three teeth.

    The junior forward played 29 minutes in Ohio State’s 73-71 win over Bucknell on Saturday despite having three of his top teeth knocked out while going for a loose ball. He is still getting dental treatment for the incident, but head coach Chris Holtmann said Monday that the Westerville, Ohio native shouldn’t miss any game time.

    “He is fine and able to do everything that we need him to do,” he said. “Our medical staff has been on top of that. His head, neck and all of the stuff you get really concerned about all checked out fine.”

    Despite the injury occurring early in the second half of the win over Bucknell, Wesson stayed aggressive when returning to the court and collected a career-high nine rebounds. While he isn’t Ohio State’s most prolific scorer by any stretch, his toughness and willingness to do the little things is something Holtmann has always admired about Wesson.

    “He has really grown and that’s a credit to him that he became so instrumental after an offseason where he wasn’t able to do anything last year,” Holtmann said, discussing Wesson’s health issues that limited him in the offseason separating his freshman and sophomore seasons. “By the end of (last) year, he was one of our most valuable guys. I think every guy wants to score more, but I think Andre also understands that he as a player adds value in a lot of different ways.”

    Wesson has always been praised for his defensive abilities at Ohio State, and has often been assigned to one of the opposing teams best offensive players because of his defensive versatility. As a junior and first-year starter, Wesson has seen his offensive numbers increase significantly in 2018-19. Through 10 games, he is averaging eight more minutes per contest as he did last season and is scoring 7.3 points per game, more than double his output from last season (2.9 ppg). He also led the team in scoring for the first time in his career Dec. 2 when he finished with 16 points in a 79-59 win over Minnesota.

    As Ohio State prepares to take on Youngstown State on Tuesday night, Holtmann said he wants to see more aggressiveness from Wesson on the offensive end as his game continues to develop.

    “We have to continue to get consistency from him on the offensive side of the ball and I think that will happen,” Holtmann said. We want him to continue to attack mismatches inside and rebound the ball better. We love coaching him.”
