tBBC Radio Hour: OSU Hoops Legend Kelvin Ransey

It’s not very often that you find yourself talking to a legend.tbbc-Radio-Hour-itunes

We’re joined this week by former Ohio State point guard Kelvin Ransey, who has played with and against some of the best basketball players in college and pro basketball history.

Isiah Thomas, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and Kevin McHale just begin the list of players that the former Macomber High School product has played against.

Yet the true story of the Toledo product isn’t just about who was on the court with him.

Plain and simplyHe might be one of the most underrated player in Buckeye history.

The floor general that Eldon Miller put his trust in from day one is 2nd all-time in field goals made at Ohio State.

His name appears fifth on the school’s all-time scoring list.

More importantly, Ransey was a key cog in putting Buckeye basketball back on the map.

We’re so glad to be able to share the story of the 4th overall pick in the 1980 NBA Draft.

After six seasons in the Association, Kelvin Ransey left on his own terms.  And now for 29 years, instead of assisting his teammates on the court, he’s delivering the word of god.

With the lord as his head coach, Ransey has learned that not only is he a floor general on the court.

He’s a point guard for the congregation and community.

Thanks for listening and as always you can find the show on iTunes. Clair and I will be back tomorrow to prepare you for Penn State and Ohio State on Saturday.

As always, Go Bucks!
