The Ohio State men's basketball team arrived in Tinseltown shortly after 4 p.m. local time Tuesday and did what a lot of tourists do in LA: They hit up the Third Street Promenade in nearby Santa Monica. Here they are posing for a photo with the famous Santa Monica Pier in the background.

Quick observations from the photo: 

  • Aaron Craft looks thrilled to be in California and not to be studying for his organic chemistry exam.
  • Lenzelle Smith Jr. is clearly the team dad. The dad belt gives it away.
  • Amedeo Della Valle brought his Hollywood clothes for the trip.
  • LaQuinton Ross's body language speaks volumes about where he is in his career right now. Ready to be alpha, but not quite there yet.
  • Deshaun Thomas is good at striking Dr. Dre poses.

Other highlights from the team's first day in LA:

Slow down, gents. Can't have too much fun. Dad says it's time for bed:
