Ross will enter NBA draft

COLUMBUS (AP) — LaQuinton Ross, Ohio State’s leading scorer and rebounder, notified coach Thad Matta on Friday that he plans to give up his senior season to pursue a pro career.

Ross, a 6-foot-8 junior from Jackson, Miss., averaged 15.2 points and 5.9 rebounds a game while leading the Buckeyes to a 25-10 record last season that ended with a second-round, 60-59 loss to Dayton in the NCAA tournament.

Also, confirmed on Saturday that Temple post Anthony Lee is transferring in and will play next season.

The 6-foot-9 Lee, set to graduate from Temple in May, has one year of eligibility remaining.
