Re: Buckeye Basketball
COLUMBUS (AP) — Dallas Lauderdale, the starting center on the Ohio State men's basketball team, will miss four to six weeks after breaking a bone in his right hand during a workout on Monday.
The school announced on Tuesday that Lauderdale would have surgery on Wednesday.
The Buckeyes return every starter from last year's 22-11 team that was eliminated in the first round of the NCAA tournament, and are expected to be one of the top teams in the Big Ten this season.
Zisis Sarikopoulos, a 7-footer who sat out last season after transferring from UAB, likely will start the season as the Buckeyes center.
They begin practice on Friday night. The season opener is Nov. 9 against Alcorn State in the Coaches vs. Cancer tournament.
