Sarikopoulos tells Buckeyes he will not return

Telling head basketball coach Thad Matta that he had struggled for several weeks with his decision to return to Ohio State for two more years or to go pro, Junior center Zisis Sarikopoulas will not be returning but will remain in his native Greece and play professional basketball.

The 7-foot Sarikopoulos played just one season for Ohio State after transferring from Alabama-Birmingham (UAB) after the 2007-2008 season. He sat out the 2008-2009 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules before playing in 14 contests for the Buckeyes last season.

But with the Buckeyes having a glut of talented frontcourt players coming in as freshman, Sarikopoulos figured his role and playing time wouldn’t change much.
