Ohio State’s men’s basketball team has had a rocky start to the 2014-2015.
The Buckeyes have been upset three times, and their 15-5 record has them at seventh-place in the Big 10 conference. However, OSU has one major factor that could still allow them to make a splash in the Big 10 and NCAA tournaments: freshman guard D’Angelo Russell.
Russell has emerged as one of the most court-savvy young players in college, as illustrated by this wicked, one-handed bounce pass in Thursday night’s game against Northwestern.
Style points for days. Not only did that look ridiculous, but from a second angle, you can see how the spin Russell puts on the ball drops it right into his teammate’s breadbasket.
Ohio State hung on to beat Northwestern, 69-67.
