Unique senior day to finish regular season

Justin Ahrens is one of seven players Ohio State will be honoring on senior day.

In practice, Ohio State will observe senior day Sunday afternoon at Value City Arena. In reality, the name could stand a review.

Yes, both before and after their regular-season finale against Michigan, the Buckeyes will pay tribute to a sizeable group of players who won’t be in uniform when the 2022-23 season gets underway. But that list of seven players features one in his sixth year (Joey Brunk), four in their fifth years (Kyle Young, Jimmy Sotos, Cedric Russell and Jamari Wheeler), a third-year player destined for the NBA (E.J. Liddell) and, finally, one traditional, fourth-year senior in Justin Ahrens.

Also being honored are senior managers Kevin Marklay, Luke Trondson, Michael Adamo, Jack Betz, Tyler Hicks and Bryce Hawkins.
