Aaron Craft preparing for post-Ohio State career with Golden State Warriors

September 11, 2014
When the 2014 NBA Draft concluded, and his name hadn’t been called, Aaron Craft was unfazed. Like the majority of his career at Ohio State, Craft dusted himself off and began to move forward. Despite going undrafted in June, Craft was invited to play with the Philadelphia 76ers and Golden State Warriors during the NBA summer league before being officially signed by the Warriors last week. For most, receiving an offer from an NBA team would be cause for celebration. For Craft, it led to a deep breath before getting back to work. “It wasn’t anything super crazy. There’s definitely a little bit of relief once we actually figured out… Read more

The King is set to make another return, this time to the Ohio State sidelines. Cavaliers forward LeBron James is expected to be on the sidelines for OSU’s matchup with Virginia Tech on Saturday night, and is set to address the Buckeyes prior to kickoff, OSU athletic director Gene Smith confirmed in an email to The Lantern on Friday. “He is planning to come and we have made arrangements for him,” Smith said in the email.

Former Buckeye Aaron Craft officially signs with Golden State Warriors

September 3, 2014
Former Ohio State basketball player Aaron Craft has officially signed with the Golden State Warriors, according to NBA.com. Golden State elected not to release the details of Craft’s contract — nor the contracts of fellow free agents James McAdoo and Mitchell Watt, who were signed along with Craft — in accordance with team policy, the website said. Craft played in five games for the Warrior’s NBA Summer League team and averaged 7.4 points per game to go with better than two steals, rebounds and assists per game for the summer. The Findlay, Ohio, native played four years at OSU and earned a plethora of individual honors including being named the… Read more

Opinion: Ohio State seems to bring injured athletes back sooner than ready

August 28, 2014
The Ohio State athletic department pushes its athletes to be ready to go as hard as they can for as long as they can. But what happens when they get injured? What happens when they can’t “go” anymore? Does OSU jeopardize these young athletes’ health for the sake of a great season or a championship? With all of the injuries we have seen lately to OSU student-athletes, I am starting to think the school is rushing its athletes back onto the field or the court too soon. After hearing the devastating news about senior quarterback Braxton Miller’s season-ending shoulder injury during fall practice, I was shocked. I couldn’t help but… Read more
