We're fortunate this week to be able to have the help of an old friend. If you follow sports in Central Ohio and are a long time listener to WTVN, you know Larry Larson. Mr. High School Sports worked for us for 20 years and retired to California almost two years ago. He lives only 20 minutes from the Staples Center, so when the Buckeyes were sent out West, we called Larry and he agreed to cover the Sweet 16 for us.
Larry delivered, getting one-on-one interviews with some of the top Buckeyes. Thanks to Larry's hard work, here are the thoughts of the Buckeyes as they prepare to face Arizona in the West Regional semifinals.

Thanks to social media, we can get a glimpse at the Sweet 16 Buckeyes in L.A. Below is a photo posted on the Twitter account of freshman Amedeo Della Valle that he simply named "The Squad." Cool picture. The only person missing is Sam Thompson. My guess is he was either a) taking the photo or b) dunking on someone at a nearby playground.
