It’s been a great year for Ohio State athletics and the freight train shows no signs of slowing down. This weekend the Ohio State Women’s Golf team became the latest Buckeye squad to win a Big Ten championship. The conference crown was the program’s second-straight and 13th since 1972.

From an individual perspective, there were Buckeyes all over the leaderboard:

Four Buckeyes can be found in the final top-8, each finishing tied for fifth place or better on the individual leaderboard. Sophomore Katja Pogacar placed the highest, sharing runner-up honors with Maryland's Juilet Vongphoumy at 2-under on the weekend. Senior captain Jan Chanpalangsri was one shot back to place fourth of 84 competitors. Jessica Porvasnik andRio Watanabe both tied for fifth at 1-over.

Former Ohio State Buckeye Mike Conley is a key part of the Memphis Grizzlies playoff plans, but the team is unsure how much they will be able to rely on him in light of recent facial surgery.

According to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

fter surgery to repair a facial fracture on guard Mike Conley, the Memphis Grizzlies need to wait 48 hours for the swelling to subside before gaining a clearer understanding of a timeline for a possible playoff return, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

There are scenarios in which Conley could return in a possible Western Conference semifinal series against the Golden State Warriors, league sources said, but that’s uncertain until the healing process begins, the pain lessens and Conley can be fitted for a mask.

Here’s hoping he makes it back in time because the Grizzlies will need all the help that they can get against #1-seed Golden State.

With just three days left until the NFL draft, Devin Smith is still very much hoping for a first round selection, and if his visits are any indication, there are a number of teams that might be willing to make his wish come true. The Panthers, Saints, 49ers, Cowboys, and Dolphins have all had the Buckeye wideout in for visits and the Cowboys and Panthers both held private workouts with Smith. The bottom line, if you want to draft Smith, hurry because if you blink he might be gone… just ask the Alabama secondary.

In the latest installment of "not really news, but the title ‘Why is this news?’ gives me tons of leeway," the Ohio State football video team is the best period. It takes a certain kind of skill to narrow an occasionally boring spring game into just under four heart-pounding minutes that has you ready to run through a wall by the end… and they’ve done just that.
