D'Angelo Russell is the first Ohio State player to make the NBA conference finals in nine years, and he isn't satisfied. Russell scored 19 points in the Lakers' closeout victory over Golden State, and now hopes to help his squad swing back against the Nuggets as the series shifts to Los Angeles.

The Buckeye baseball team is ending the year strong; Ohio State has won eight consecutive games, and will look to complete its season with a sweep of Michigan on Saturday afternoon.

A pair of standout Ohio State forwards are up to exciting things this offseason. Former Buckeye E.J. Liddell is back to throwing down windmill dunks 10 months after tearing his ACL, and Cotie McMahon will represent the USA at the FIBA U19 Women's World Cup in July.

Transfer additions Tywone Malone and Josh Simmons have begun their Ohio State journeys, and both expressed excitement to be donning the Scarlet and Gray.

After inking NFL contracts, Antwuan Jackson and Taron Vincent will each have an opportunity to carve out a role ahead of the new campaign.
