After leading Ohio State in both scoring and rebounding this past season, junior forward LaQuinton Ross has made the decision to forego his senior season and enter the 2014 NBA Draft.
After a string of quality performances in the 2013 NCAA tournament Ross put together his most productive season in Columbus as a junior, averaging 15.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. Ross surpassed the 20-point mark in seven games this season, scoring a career-high 26 points in Ohio State’s Big Ten quarterfinal victory over Nebraska.
Ross becomes the second underclassman to leave the Ohio State program, with guard Amedeo Della Valle leaving to play for a professional team in his native Italy days after the Buckeyes’ season came to an end in the NCAA tournament.
