Thad Matta's statement on the loss of Larry Siegfried:

"Our basketball program has lost one of its finest members. His legacy at Ohio State and as a professional is so impressive. He was a player that could do it all and it was a thrill to have him around our team during the 1960 Championship Celebration Weekend last year. Our hearts go out to his entire family."

I'm old enough to have seen Larry play in his OSU days and as a pro. He was the ultimate team player....solid, a great defender and unselfish. Larry was the the leading scorer for the Bucks before Jerry Lucas arrived. He gave up that role to mainly feed Lucas the ball and never complained. RIP Sieg and thanks for the memories.
