Ohio State Buckeyes Basketball Details


More often than not, when you think of Ohio State, you think of their rich football program. But Ohio State basketball has also had a lot of success over its history and continues to be one of the top schools in the Big 10. Under head coach Thad Matta, the Buckeyes are continually improving and attracting great players. Ohio State continues to get better and could soon be recognized as a power in both football and basketball..

Ohio State basketball has its tied back all the way to 1898. The program became prominent when it joined the Big Nine Conference which today is the Big Ten Conference. In 1923, Harold Olsen began head coaching and coached Ohio State for 24 seasons. With Ohio State, Olsen started to turn the spotlight on Ohio State. Olsen led the Buckeyes to 1 National Championship appearances, 4 Final Four appearances, 5 Big Ten Conference Championships, 15 winning seasons, and a 259-197 record before Olsen left Ohio State. The Buckeyes saw two more head coaches in the 1950’s which were Tippy Dye and Floyd Stahl who didn’t have a ton of success with the programs as Ohio State was considered mediocre in the eyes of college basketball after the 1950’s. Fred Taylor was who was hired in 1958 quickly turned around the program and Ohio State became recognized as a good basketball school. In his second season in 1959-1960, Taylor led Ohio State to its first National Championship. Taylor coached from 1958-1976 and had a good amount of success along with improving the reputation of Ohio State basketball. Taylor finished his career with Ohio State with a 297-158 record with 1 National Championship, 4 Final Four appearances, 7 Big 10 Championships, and 13 winning seasons. After Taylor left the program in 1976, Ohio State struggled and saw three different head coaches: Eldon Miller, Gary Williams, and Randy Ayers. None of these coaches had great records in their time at Ohio State. In 1997, Ohio State once again started to have success under new head coach Jim O’Brien. Under O’Brien, Ohio State was 133-88 with 1 Final Four appearance, 4 tournament appearances, and 5 winning seasons. O’Brien was fired in 2003 for NCAA violations.

In 2004, Ohio State hired current head coach Thad Matta. Under coach Matta, Ohio State had instant success and hasn’t had a losing season since he began coaching. Matta has led Ohio State to the national tournament each season as head coach except for his first season where the Buckeyes were ineligible because of NCAA violations under O’Brien. Matta currently has a 320-108 record with Ohio State with 2 Final Four appearance, 4 Big 10 Conference Championships, and 3 Big 10 Coach of the Year awards. Matta continues to improve the Ohio State program and will continue to do so heading forward. Ohio State has remained competitive in the Big 10 and could soon be a national powerhouse as they build their program and add the right pieces.

Through the ups and downs of the Ohio State Buckeyes basketball program, it has seen a lot of great players come through the program. Ohio State has had 3 National Players of the Year in Jerry Lucas (1961 and 1962), Gary Bradds (1964), and Evan Turner (2010) and all three of those players were Consensus All Americans. Other great players to come through the Ohio State program include: John Havlicek, Mike Conley Jr., Michael Redd, Dennis Hopson, Greg Oden, D’Angelo Russell, Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft, Kelvin Ransey, and many more. As this program continues to build, Ohio State will get great players that will help the program go above and beyond expectations.

Although Ohio State didn’t have the ideal 2015 campaign, the Buckeyes and coach Matta expect to turn up the intensity in 2016 and go far into the national tournament. Ohio State has seen good runs in the tournament over the past decade but hasn’t been able to get that national title. The potential of the Buckeyes program is there and it’s up to them to execute when it matters most to bring home their second national title.
