The Buckeyes are another elitist team left with a couple gaping holes, due to players leaving for the NBA, namely Deshaun Thomas (19.5 point average) and Evan Ravenel. But watch out for point guard Aaron Craft, a leading defender in the league, and now Ohio’s number one scorer. He will look to make even more moves as a seasoned senior, working in tandem with Lenzelle Smith Jr., highest rebound points and second highest scorer on the team, and LaQuinton Ross, a major threat on offense. Key newcomers will be Marc Loving and Kameron Williams.
