The Ohio State basketball team welcomed back some former players for their Hoops Pro Week. It’s a time when hoopers from hardwood past ascend on Columbus to reconnect and help the current team understand what it means to be a Buckeye.

In attendance are former star players Evan Turner, John Diebler, D’Angelo Russell, Jae’sean Tate, Keita Bates-Diop, Aaron Craft, and more. While in town, the veterans are helping the young guys with skills, pick up games, and what it takes to be a winner.

Aaron Craft is pleased with what he’s seeing from the current group.

“Just being here for two days, we’ve seen that their expectations, they’re willing to work for. So, I love the group they’ve put together, the work ethic they have. I love the coaching staff, so hopefully we can keep building and find a way to put another banner up.” Craft said
