Ohio State will face Illinois in Sunday’s Big Ten Tournament championship game, but the Buckeyes likely won’t have the services of forward Kyle Young.

OSU coach Chris Holtmann said Saturday that Young is “day-to-day” after suffering a concussion vs. Purdue on Friday. He’s not expected to be available vs. the Illini, but could play in the NCAA Tournament.

Young was not able to be with the team today due to the concussion. However, Holtmann said the team FaceTimed with Young immediately after their 68-67 win over Michigan on Saturday.

They also posted a photo of Young’s jersey from last season in the locker room before the game.
