Ohio State was playing VCU is their Round of 64 game in the NCAA Tournament, and got off to a slow start, down 28-18. Despite being a 10 seed up against a seven seed, Ohio State was actually considered the favorite in the game, led by star D’Angelo Russell, but were down ten at one point in the first half.
Many viewers were less than impressed with the Buckeyes’ play in the early going. Among them was Boston Celtics forward and former Buckeyes star Jared Sullinger, who took to Twitter to express his feelings about the team’s play.
I haven’t done any research, but I would be very surprised if Sullinger had any eligibility left, and if he does, it would be an impressive feat if he was able to get accepted to the university and suit up in time to join the team. But who am I to stand in the way of Sullinger’s dream? He wants to help the Buckeyes, and he should do so however he can.
After Sullinger’s tweet, the Buckeyes tightened things up considerably against VCU, tying the game with seven minutes left. Did Sullinger inspire them? Coincidence? I think n–yes, yes it was a coincidence.
Sullinger updated his tweets accordingly.
He was not happy with the refs in the game either:
Sullinger was part of the 2012 Final Four team at Ohio State, making the AP All-American team in both of his season in Columbus.
Sullinger was a starting forward most of the year for the surprising Boston Celtics, after being chosen in the first round of the 2012 draft. He was averaging 14.4 points and 8.1 rebounds per game, but he’s currently out for the year, giving him plenty of time to provide Twitter critiques to his old team, the Buckeyes. And if it’s working, who’s to blame him?
