C Kaleb "Bully" Wesson ('18 All B1G Freshman, '19 Honorable Mention All B1G, '20 2nd Team All B1G)

    another tough test for K. Wesson today. MSU will bring the defensive pressure for sure. I hope OSU, the guards especially, are able to handle it and the refs let them play a little. May not be the most asthetically pleasing to the eye to watch, but the winner of this one will have earned it.

    With a win and a decent run in the conference tourney, I could see them reach the 4 line. With a loss and an early exit in the conference tourney at worst an 8 seed. I think a 5-6 seed is most realistic at this point, which is amazing considering where they were 6-7 weeks ago.

    For the second year in a row, Kaleb Wesson earned honors from the Big Ten.

    After getting named honorable mention all-conference a year ago, the junior big man was voted a second-team All-Big Ten selection by both coaches and media on Monday after the regular season wrapped up.

    The first-team picks were made up of Iowa's Luka Garza, Maryland's Jalen Smith, Michigan State's Cassius Winston, Penn State's Lamar Stevens and Maryland's Anthony Cowan Jr. (coaches) and Illinois' Ayo Dosunmu (media). Wesson was joined by Michigan's Zavier Simpson, Michigan State's Xavier Tillman, Minnesota's Daniel Oturu, Cowan (media) and Dosunmu (coaches) on the second team.

    Wesson, who underwent a body transformation in the offseason to cut more than 30 pounds, leads the Buckeyes in both scoring and on the glass. He's averaging 14 points and 9.3 rebounds, doing so by increasing stamina and cutting his foul rate to play a career-high 29.5 minutes per game. The 6-foot-9, 255-pounder, who has started in all 31 games, is also recording 1.9 assists, one block and 0.7 steals per game.

    More so than in any previous season, a large portion of Wesson's offense has come from behind the 3-point arc, where he's shooting 42.5 percent. He's hitting 44.4 percent of his shots from the field.

    His more diverse offensive game combined with more activity on the defensive end of the court has made him one of the conference's most productive big men.

    “Kaleb today, I think, was who he is and that is one of the best bigs in the country,” Holtmann said after Wesson's 23-point, 12-rebound performance at Michigan on Feb. 4. “Sometimes he can have games where he struggles, just like everybody else. But he played like one of the best big men in the country.”

    Wesson has recorded 11 double-doubles this season.

    I guess we don't need consistency from Kaleb any longer.

    i'd probably lose, but if i'm forced to make a bet, i'm going with kaleb returning. especially in light of his brother missing out, the tournament cancellation might be the catalyst. don't think i'd have this foolish optimism if next year's team with kaleb didn't look so promising. if kaleb returns, we're looking at a top 6ish team heading into the season.

    Wesson and the Buckeyes went through a roller-coaster season, which included both nearly ascending to No. 1 and also losing six of seven. Through it all the big man did it all for Ohio State, leading the team in scoring and rebounding and shooting 42.5% from three. Without Wesson, the Buckeyes wouldn't have turned things back around after their midseason slide.
