Myers has recorded a point in all but one game this season. He recorded a team-high nine points in the Buckeyes’ season-opener against Air Force and has recorded 10 multi-point games this season. Myers is just the second Buckeye to record 100 career assists and currently ranks second all-time with 114 helpers.

Van Buren has been a fixture of the Buckeyes’ defensive unit this season, starting all 13 games at close defense. The sophomore has neutralized some of the top scorers in the country throughout Ohio State’s 2023 slate, which is among the toughest in the nation.

In his fourth season as a Buckeye, Snyder has played in every game this year for Ohio State on defense.
