It may just have been a modeling gig, but Aaron Craft was back in an Ohio State basketball uniform, with the Buckeye Twitter accounting photographing the former point guard in scarlet threads.
The Buckeye Hoops account got their Twitter base excited when they said they were seeking to find out if Craft had exhausted his eligibility–Of course he did, but why let that get in the way of the fun.
Of course, Dayton fans piled on Craft declaring the school The Ohio State University which was the headline in the Dayton Daily News after the Flyers’ big tournament win over the Buckeyes a few years back.
The school school also posted pictures of Sam Thompson and John Diebler in some classic looking Buckeye uniforms.
the Buckeye celebrities were back in town to workout with the current crop of Ohio State hoopsters.
Craft reportedly returned to Ohio State to pursue a medical degree, and just finished his first year, according to his own tweets.
Craft was a great college basketball who will go down as one of the program’s all-time fan favorites. I’ve met more than a few people who’ve gotten to meet Craft pre-pandemic at some of the post-college tournaments he’s competed in, and the recollection of meeting the point guard always brought a smile to their faces.
Moving on from Ohio State basketball
Ohio State Hoops won’t have Duane Washington Jr. back. the 6-foot-3, 21-year-old retained the option to return after he declared, but ultimately decided to forgo his legibility after the recent NBA combine.
Washington led the Buckeyes with 16.4 points per game. He also averaged 3.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.
With Washington making his plans known, coach Chris Holtmann will not turn his attention to the team’s second leading scorer, EJ Lidell.
Like Washington, Lidell announced he was initially declaring for the NBA Draft, but has yet to make a final decision.
