I’ll keep it 100 with you guys — there is absolutely nothing going on right now in college basketball to cover.
We could have a season with some fans, we could have a season with no fans, or we could have no season at all. The conference schedules have not been released, in part because we don’t know if there will even be a conference season to play.
Things are’t so much bleak as much as they’re just unknown, which hurts all the same. Ohio State football has been pushed to the spring (or winter? Who knows at this point), but all indications are that if there is a college basketball season, it’s going to start right around the same time it typically would, right in the middle of November.
....but even that is not guaranteed. No Ohio State football or basketball would really put my mental health in the toilet though, so we’re going to flush that out with a bunch of dunks today.
Below, I’ve put together a collection of the top dunks of the 2019-2020 season, strictly for the serotonin they provide us during these tough times. Happy Friday Buckeyes, it won’t be long until we get to see these slams live on the hardwood once again.

Muhammad tosses a dime, Liddell cashes it in:
