Unfortunately, a bigger cause for concern for Ohio State is the health of Zed Key. Key went down with 7 minutes left in the game with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
After the game, head coach Chris Holtmann discussed that injury. While Holtmann is hopeful the team gets Key back quickly, he also admitted it is that time of the year when Ohio State will have to think about postseason play as they work Key back onto the floor.
Holtmann on Zed Key, who turned his ankle and left the game in the second half: “Hopefully we’ll get him back, but obviously we’ve got postseason to think about as well.”
