Sunday will be a homecoming of sorts for Ohio State point guard Jamari Wheeler.

The Buckeyes open conference play on the road against Penn State, and Wheeler will return to the arena in which he played his home games over the past four years before transferring to Ohio State. Wheeler said at a press conference Friday that he believes there'll be a mixed reaction at the Bryce Jordan Center when he takes the floor in scarlet and gray.

"Some cheering, some booing, it's just how it goes," Wheeler said. "I've had a couple of fans and friends reach out to me already saying they're excited to watch the game, they're gonna be at the game and stuff like that. Obviously they're a school, we're a different school, we're competing. So I wouldn't be surprised if I got a couple boos and whatnot."

To hear everything Wheeler, freshman guard Malaki Branham and Ohio State assistant coach Ryan Pedon said about the upcoming conference opener, check out the videos above and below.
