Brice Sensabaugh, Roddy Gayle Jr. and several other young Buckeyes are gearing up to play the first Big Ten opponent of their college career on Thursday.
Ohio State hosts Rutgers in its ninth game of the season at 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. The Scarlet Knights will be a step up in competition from the Buckeyes' last time out against St. Francis, a mid-major team it blew out by 37, but Ohio State has already taken on three ranked opponents in 2022-23.
The Buckeyes' four standout freshmen are fresh off a performance in which they combined for 50 points and each scored at least 10, a feat that hadn't been done at Ohio State since 2014. Now they'll begin Big Ten play as a crucial part of the Buckeye lineup before the start of 2023.
"The four of us are special in my opinion," Gayle said during an interview session on the practice court at the Schottenstein Center Tuesday. "I feel like we have great runs, especially in practice and stuff, I feel like we kind of get in on the other guys."
