Thad Matta Lost a Player Today

Just two days before playing 4th-ranked Kentucky at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Ohio State freshman shooting Austin Grandstaff is leaving the program.

The 6’5″ shooting guard was ranked as the 56th-best player in the class of 2015, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings.  Grandstaff averaged 4.4 points a game, shot 34% from behind the three-point line while acting as the 8th-man for the .500 Buckeyes.

Losing a shooter shouldn’t hurt them too much on Saturday.  Excluding 6’11” center Trevor Thompson, their Top 5 players all shoot 32% or greater from behind the three-point line.

It also won’t matter because this poor team doesn’t stand a chance.  Ohio State has some athletes, but this team plays bad basketball.  They make a ton of silly mistakes and lack structure offensively.

They’ve lost to Louisiana Tech, UT-Arlington, and on Saturday they’ll lose to Kentucky in the House that Hova Built.  Losing to Kentucky is a feeling they’re familiar with.

    Man. What happened to Matta? Good thing OSU doesn’t give a damn about basketball because they’ve been thoroughly mediocre ever since Jorts strong armed that ball through whatshisname.
