Ohio State's Seth Towns scores for first time in nearly 3 years
Ohio State’s Seth Towns has scored his first bucket in nearly three years after he had to sit out due to medical reasons.
It took over 1,000 days for him to get that basket, according to Colin Hass-Hill:
Seth Towns with his first points at Ohio State. Took over 1,000 days, but he's back on the court.

As the tweet also says, he was the former Ivy League Player of the Year during the 2017-2018 season.
Before transferring to Ohio State, he averaged 14 points per game as well as almost five rebounds per game with Harvard. He was a 42% shooter from the floor and a 41.7% shooter from three-point range coming into this season.
His career-high in points came during a game in 2018 against Columbia where Towns had 31 points. He also had three rebounds and one assist in that game.
That bucket in the game against Rutgers is likely just the start of a big season for Towns as he works his way back into the lineup.
