Brice Sensabaugh earning trust of Chris Holtmann in clutch situations
Brice Sensabaugh is already earning his place for Ohio State. Especially in late game situations, per Eleven Warriors’ Josh Poloha.
Averaging 14 points per game, Sensabaugh has established himself as a scorer for the Buckeyes, and his teammates are taking notice.
Sensabaugh has helped lead the Buckeyes to a 7-2 start, including a clutch performance against Rutgers where Ohio State won on a buzzer beater in the final seconds. Chris Holtmann had high praise for the young guy:
I feel like he’s probably our best guy at creating his own shot. I think that’s what you’re looking for late in games is those guys that can create their own shot. There’s an art to getting your shot off of a great defense and he was being guarded by a really good player. I think if he would’ve stopped maybe a half-step early he would’ve been able to get to his sweet spot there. I have tremendous confidence in his ability to do that.
He still has a long season ahead of him, but Sensabaugh is giving Buckeyes fans confidence early this season.
We’ll see how Sensabaugh’s role with the Buckeyes continues to grow as a matchup with North Carolina is up next on Dec. 17. Tipoff will be at 3 p.m. ET on CBS.
