With the Buckeyes’ season over after a 90-84 loss to Gonzaga in the second round, we reflect on Ohio State’s season, look to the future and also examine the words of Keita Bates-Diop from Saturday night about his possible thought process for making a decision to turn pro.

Topics discussed on Inside the Shoe Monday include:

  • The 90-84 loss by Ohio State to Gonzaga in the NCAA Tournament second round on Saturday in Boise and how it was a valiant effort even in defeat for the Buckeyes.
  • Why it was a fitting way to go out, disappointing as it may be for fans to see the season end.
  • The future of Ohio State basketball and how better days are ahead for the Buckeyes.
  • An attempt to analyze comments made by fourth-year junior Keita Bates-Diop after the loss on Saturday about his decision whether to declare for the NBA draft or return to Ohio State for a final year of eligibility. Bates-Diop said despite the assumption he would leave, he has not made a decision about his future.

On the podcast Wednesday, Ryan Ginn will join Kyle to talk basketball and also spring football. Later this week, Ryan Donnelly will provide a recruiting update and also comment on the latest commitment to the football program, this one from 4-star running back Sampson James.
