The Ohio State men’s basketball team began their season on Saturday with an 89-50 victory over Morgan State. While there were many highlights in a 39 point victory, the moment generating the most buzz happened before the ball even tipped off.
While in the tunnel signing autographs, Buckeyes’ senior guard Aaron Craft was handed a rubik’s cube by a fan. A little over a minute later, the cube was solved and the fan had one very unique piece of memorabilia from the Big Ten’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year.
Craft’s rubik’s cube skills first gained notoriety back in his sophomore season. After reportedly completing one with one hand while conducting a phone interview with CBSSports, Craft put his skills on display for the cameras at The Big Ten Network.
In addition to being known for his talents on the court, Craft was named the 2012-13 Men’s Basketball Academic All-America Team Members of the Year.
Craft had 5 points, 6 assists, and 6 rebounds in the Buckeyes’ blowout win.
