Latest Aaron Craft News

Did You See This? Craft jumps over expensive seats

What is it about Aaron Craft’s style of play that makes so many respect him? Pardon the terrible cliches, but it’s that the Ohio State point guard gives 100 percent all the time and does whatever to help his team- even if it means he puts his body at risk. Craft showed these qualities in Tuesday’s win over Iowa, when he jumped over the first row of seats as he tried to keep the ball in play. Watch the play right now. That’s some hustle, and athletic ability! Craft could have been injured – or he could have injured a

Floor to mouth: Craft disgusts Michigan State fans

Earlier this season, Indiana coach Tom Crean dropped a piece gum on the court and put it right back in his mouth (watch it here). To be fair, as Crean later tweeted, it was a fresh piece that he fumbled in the process of putting in his mouth. The five-second rule applies there. But what about a wet mouthpiece that rests on the floor for several seconds? [ RELATED: Want to embed a BTN.com video? Here’s how to do it! ] Ohio State’s Aaron Craft has no problem with it. The point guard had his mouthpiece knocked out in Saturday’s

Big Ten Geeks: Inconvenient Truths

This may surprise you, but every now and then we say something that really gets fans riled up. The best example of this is our belief that while Aaron Craft is a very good defender, he is not, nor has he ever been, Ohio State’s best defender. And this year, he’s not even the team’s best perimeter defender. Rather than take this as a complement to Ohio State’s collection of outstanding defenders, a lot of people take this as a slight to Craft. Well, today I want to say all sorts of things that I think are true, but I

Big Ten Geeks: Master of his Craft?

Ohio State picked up a solid road victory at Purdue last night, but the bigger story may be the point guard controversy simmering in Columbus. After just five minutes of play, the Buckeyes’ Aaron Craft  picked up his second foul and headed for the bench, with his team leading by a point. Replacement Shannon Scott would ignite the team, helping to grow a double digit halftime lead that Ohio State would not relinquish, despite some valiant efforts from the Boilermakers. Scott was excellent in many ways, but most impressive was his ability to create for others on the offensive end. Scott finished with

Did You See This? Jim Jackson vs. Aaron Craft

During Saturday’s Ohio State game against Chicago State on BTN, our crew showed a little video that captured BTN analyst and former Buckeye player Jim Jackson and current Buckeyes guard Aaron Craft trying the same trick shot. Both men missed their first attempt but they each make their second and it’s an impressive angle. “I let him get his confidence,” Jackson said of his approach to the competition with Craft, “and I took his cookies right away from him.” Later in the game, Jackson and BTN announcer Eric Collins discussed all of the great players were had jerseys hanging in the rafters at Ohio State.

Big Ten Geeks: On the chin

The Big Ten had a relatively bad weekend, dropping marquee games against other high-major conference teams. The main event was a battle between two top-10 teams when Kansas visited Columbus. Given that the game was on the Buckeyes’ floor, Ohio State should have won this game, and probably by more than just a point or two. Instead, Kansas ended up with a relatively comfortable 8-point win. The Jayhawks led most of the way, and started pulling away with about ten minutes left. There was no great mystery as to why OSU lost—they were terrible shooting the ball, both inside and

Boilers, Buckeyes, Spartans win exhibitions

Michigan State, Ohio State and Purdue all hosted exhibition games Tuesday night. As expected, the three teams carded wins over Northwood, Walsh and Montevallo, respectively. Michigan State’s Branden Dawson and Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas both opened the season with a flurry, registering back-to-back buckets off the opening tip. Watch Dawson’s opening sequence and Thomas’. Check out Dawson’s left-handed jam now and get our video recaps from all three games in this post.

Did You See This? Craft beats first-half buzzer

You may never see a more awkward buzzer-beater than the one Ohio State’s Aaron Craft hit at the end of the first half in Tuesday’s exhibition win over Walsh. Consider the mess that occurred before Craft beat the buzzer: There was a loose ball following an errant 3-pointer, which led to Walsh attempting to save the ball from going out of bounds, which led to Sam Thompson trying to do the same before finding Craft, who dribbled backward, to the left and then to the right before finally getting a shot off that touched seemingly every part of the rim
