The Buckeyes hit the blacktop Thursday as fans showed up to cheer on both the Ohio State men's and women's basketball teams.

To kick things off at the outdoor courts outside the RPAC, Tanner Holden picked up a win in a "shooting stars" competition that pitted the men's team against the women. Then Brice Sensabaugh won the subsequent 3-point shooting contest, and came in second to fellow freshman Roddy Gayle Jr. in the slam dunk contest.

Buckeye quarterback C.J. Stroud showed up to judge the dunk contest alongside former Ohio State walk-on Joey Lane, sixth-year forward Justice Sueing and Brutus Buckeye.

 Also in attendance for the event were past, present and future Buckeyes like Cardale Jones, Sonny Styles, Jayden Ballard and Devin Royal.

Following the aforementioned contests, the Ohio State men's team scrimmaged itself in a fullcourt 5-on-5 contest that included an Elam ending, with Sueing nailing the game-winning shot.

Afterward, the Buckeyes took pictures and signed autographs with fans. Eleven Warriors caught up with Gayle and Ohio State junior center Zed Key for interviews, and you can check them out below.
