    That recovery block Andre had late in the UCLA game... I didn't even know he could do that.

    i'm looking forward to next year's lineup that consists of carton, muhammad, liddell, young/gaffney, and kaleb.

    yes, this is the appropriate thread for this post.

    over the 10 games since conference play resumed:

    10.9 points
    4.1 rebounds
    50% overall
    35% behind the arc
    76% from the line

    for a starter who logs big minutes, those stats won't blow anyone's hair back. but, man... this team needs his consistent play. it may not always be pretty, but andre brings his lunch pail every game.

    every once in a while he gets lazy with some of his passes but you cannot forget his defense either because he plays pretty solid on that end

    zero doubt about that. by far our most variable defender. it will be a luxury to have him and liddell as two guys who can guard 3, if not 4, positions. if andre polishes his offensive game this offseason, he's going to break out next year.

    solid game all around. His post-up jumper game was on point today. Starters got off to a great start and played harder than IU early on and it set the tempo for the entire game.

    Even when OSU had their stretch of bad offense and streak of TO's, they were in it the entire way and it allowed them to pull it off late.

    Great, much needed win for the post-season resume.

    Men’s Basketball: Andre Wesson shows improvement with post play


    During Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann’s first season, forward Andre Wesson did not make a great first impression.

    Averaging 18.5 minutes per game off the bench, he shot 37.9 percent from the field, averaging 2.9 points per game along with 2.3 personal fouls. Holtmann said the then-sophomore forward took bad shots, especially early last season, and struggled with turnovers.

    “I remember everyone was yelling at me, ‘Bench Wesson and bench [Andrew] Dakich,’” Holtmann said.

    But to the head coach, it was the uncertainty Wesson had of his own game in Holtmann’s first season that caused the forward to have problems.

    “I think he struggled with, ‘where do I, how do I impact the game, where do I impact the game?’” Holtmann said.

    Without a true expectation for how significant Wesson’s impact would be for Ohio State during the 2018-19 season — many viewed him as a defensive specialist off the bench — Wesson has slowly begun to find his identity on the basketball court.

    In the past two games, the junior forward has scored 30 points, making 11-of-18 attempts from the field, including two 3s on six attempts.

    “My teammates have always been on me, ‘just keep shooting the ball,’ so I have put it on them,” Wesson said. “They have done a great job of boosting my confidence.”

    Now Wesson’s role has shifted this season when he is on the court.

    As his brother, sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson, averaged 3.8 fouls per game in Big Ten play, fouling out of four of his past 10 games, and sophomore forward Kyle Young was sidelined due to injury, Andre Wesson took more of a prominent role in the post. He is second on the team in rebounding, averaging four per game in Big Ten play.

    In Andre Wesson’s past two games against Penn State and Indiana, he has recorded 14 rebounds, more than the previous five games combined.

    This change in mentality has affected Wesson’s offense as well, increasing his shooting percentage 5.7 percent from nonconference to conference play.

    Holtmann views Wesson as a player who has figured out his role.

    “He’s moved into this year where he’s gotten even a better understanding of that: how can he impact the game based on his skills,” Holtmann said.
