"We had conversations and meetings that I will leave private. He has fulfilled those. I don't know that I can be certain on what it will look like in terms of his role, because obviously we have played well in this last stretch," Holtmann said Wednesday. "He will have to earn his way back to whatever role gives our team the best chance of winning."
Williams averages 8 points and 2 rebounds a game as Ohio State's most reliable three-point shooter, connecting on 46.3 percent of his shots from behind the arc. He scored 10 points against the Nittany Lions in the first matchup between the two schools, an 82-79 loss in Columbus.
Ohio State and Penn State are set to tip off from State College, Pa. at 8 p.m. on BTN.
