Recruiting woes .. .
plague Ohio State'


Question - Which Big Ten school has won the most confer-t
ence basketball games since 1959?
Answer - Ohio State University. Under the tutelage of Coacht
Fred Taylor the Buckeyes have won seven Big Ten titles, a na-
tional championship, and 158 league games since his first year
at the helm in 1959.
Recently, Ohio State has suffered through some dismal
seasons on the basketball court. OSU Athletic Director J. Ed-
ward Weaver gave Taylor a "win-or-else" ultimatum at the
start of this season, and Taylor resigned last week, with the
Buckeyes mired in ninth place in the Big Ten.
Taylor built the Ohio State basketball powerhouse of the
1960's from scratch with players like Jerry Lucas, John Havlicek,
Bill Hoskett, Gary Bradds, Dave Sorenson and Jimmy Cleamons.
For times Ohio State reached the final four of the NCAA tourn-
The downfall of the OSU basketball program can be traced
to a lack of talent. Despite Taylor's great ability as a tactician
and bench coach, the Buckeyes have been losing. No matter
how good a coach is, he can't win in the Big Ten with mediocrei
talent. And Taylor has not been able to recruit top-notch bas-
ketball players.
Insisting on staying within Ohio for his players, he hasn't

a full - court press for the
