Great job to our basketball team! If I remember correctly, there is a pretty hefty bonus if Coach Holtmann achieves certain academic standards in his contract... I don’t remember the specific goal but glad our team prioritizes school as well as being an athlete!

The only other Big Ten team to earn the award in 2018-19 was Northwestern.

I guess those guys up north "ain't come to play school..."

This is why you hire a quality coach like Coach Holtmann.  He gets it.  Winning basketball is awesome but helping the young men succeed in life...that's what it's about!  Thankful for this leadership and proud to be a Buckeye fan!

One more indicator that we have a high quality, high character head coach both on the floor and off the floor.

Just require that the walk-ons maintain a 3.7 GPA or above in order to round up the team GPA.

This is outstanding.

Congratulations to the student-athletes, as well as Coach Holtmann and staff - go Buckeyes.

Hard to believe that Louisville made the list but that is after they kicked out Pitino.  Other than Gonzaga and Villanova there is not a single historically strong basketball program on the list.  No Duke, no Kansas, no Kentucky, no MSU. Not a single SEC or Big 12 school. 

I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan!
