Ohio State will be without its starting point guard on Saturday.
A team spokesman announced C.J. Jackson will miss the Buckeyes' game against Maryland with a shoulder injury. He is "day to day."

He aggravated the injury during Wednesday's game against Northwestern, but after getting checked out he returned to action. However, Chris Holtmann said on Friday that Jackson's shoulder bothered him in Thursday's practice.
With Jackson out, Keyshawn Woods, Luther Muhammad and Duane Washington Jr. will likely play the majority of minutes in the backcourt.
Jackson has had issues coughing the ball up, averaging 2.5 turnovers per game, but he is second on the team with 12.5 points per game and averages a team-best 3.4 assists per game. He has hit 41.9 percent of his shots and shoots 40.3 percent from beyond the arc.
