Ohio State was one of two Big Ten teams to earn the NABC Team Academic Excellence Award.
The National Association of Basketball Coaches has been handing out Team Academic Excellence Awards for seven years, and Ohio State men's basketball earned its second consecutive honor.
To receive the award, a team must record a team GPA of at least 3.0.
The Buckeyes were led by guard Joey Lane, who was honored by the Big Ten as a 2018019 Distinguished Scholar. To qualify for the distinguished honor, a player must record at least a 3.7 GPA the year before.
The only other Big Ten team to earn the award in 2018-19 was Northwestern. This was Ohio State's second time making the list, which corresponds with the two seasons that Chris Holtmann has been the head coach of the Buckeyes.
Ohio State begins its 2019-20 season at home against Cincinnati in early-November.
