Chris Holtmann is working on getting Ohio State ready for the 2022-23 basketball season. The Buckeyes are also headed to the Bahamas this week for an exhibition series to get some extra work in.

Heading into the season, Holtmann has a new contract that was agreed to this offseason. He also has the endorsement of AD Gene Smith who recently said the “future’s bright” for the Buckeyes with Holtmann leading the team.
