I’m ranking the OSU basketball squad NBA-style leading up to OSU’s first exhibition affair on November 1 with Ottawa. Use the #OSUrank hashtag on Twitter to join the convo.
Who: Mason Cox #30
Why: Really it’s pretty remarkable he’s on this list at all. Our count of “members of the Cox family who didn’t play one minute of high school basketball but somehow found our way onto the OSU basketball team” currently sits at two1.
Your move, Austin2.
Seriously though, Mason is a big (well, tall) body that can help push Cobbins (and Jurick?) in practice and give Ford the depth he needs for scrimmages3.
He can block shots, run the floor, and apparently sports a punchy turnaround hook.
Unfortunately he will never be 1/4 the dunker (or FIFA gamer) his older brother is.
Stats: 3 GP (that is literally the only number in his career statistics).
@pistolsguy Desmond Mason?
