Did You See This? Ohio State's Craft

Ohio State point guard Aaron Craft has plenty of brains to go along with his skills on the hardwood. As it’s been reported recently, the sophomore sensation received the first “B” of his academic career last year. And it was a B-plus in chemistry, so it’s not like he should feel bad. On Tuesday, Craft was caught doing a Rubik’s Cube with one hand while conducting a phone interview with CBSSports.com’s Jeff Goodman. So, naturally, BTN asked Craft to give the Rubik’s Cube a try in front of one of our cameras Wednesday. He succeeded. In just more than a minute, too. Watch the video now.

As for the game on BTN, Ohio State drilled South Carolina-Upstate, 82-58, following a slow start. Read the AP recap.

Not surprised – he always had a Rubik’s Cube in high school he was playing with. He’d sit at the girl’s basketball games watching his girlfriend and sister play and worked on a Rubik’s Cube the whole time.

I bought my son a Rubik’s Cube and told him Aaron gets it done in less than 2 minutes. Thanks for the video. I now have the proof to show him. Craft is an awesome representative for the university epitomizing the term “student-athlete”. Go Bucks!

Aaron is my favorite basketball player in the world. I want to be just like him. I got to see him play in LA for the sweet sixteen and the elite eight. He waved at me while everyone else ignored me. He is a great person. I really want him to go far in his life. He is very smart too.
