Thad Matta coached at Ohio State for 13 seasons. During that time, Ohio State reached nine NCAA tournaments, including two Final Four appearances. Matta won 337 games, and his teams won five Big Ten regular-season titles.

Tomorrow, he will be recognized by Ohio State at halftime as the Buckeyes will take on Syracuse in the Big Ten-ACC challenge.

Matta helped turn around the Ohio State basketball program after it was left in a dire state after coach Jim O'Brien's infamous departure. 

Despite being let go before the 2017-18 season, Matta has clearly remained in the minds of the new Ohio State coaching staff, as Chris Holtmann is continuing to honor the past, as well as build a solid future.
