James “Satch” Sullinger announced recently that he would be retiring at the end of the season to spend more time with his family.

The 61-year-old former Oberlin College basketball star, has coached at several levels of competition since 1978.

He will continue to teach until 2014.

Sullinger caoched two of his sons, Julian and Jared. Some Columbus area fans might not recall, but his oldest son, J.J. played at Thomas Worthington before going to Arkansas and transferring back to Ohio State.

A native of Columbus, Sullinger has a record of 255-137 in coaching stops at East, Beechcroft, Reynoldsburg, Northland. When his alma mater came calling, he was Oberlin’s head coach for three seasons.

The past five seasons, Northland has posted a 116-5 record. The Vikings won the 2009 Division I championship. Last season, he and son, Jared, were named James A. Naismith national coach and player of the year respectively.

This season, Northland has a 21-1 record and a #2 seed in the Central District.

#1 Ohio State loses to Wisconsin, this time in basketball

Kohl Center has been bad news for Ohio State (courtesy of Wisconsin athletics)

The Ohio State Buckeyes men’s basketball team won the first 24 games of the season, the best start by any team in the country in three years.

Another startling fact at OSU is that they won 12 straight Big Ten road games, which is a feat in a top-notch conference.

But has the schedule wound down, everybody saw the Wisconsin game as a possible roadblock. And it was.

The Buckeyes lost to Wisconsin, 71-67 after blowing a 15-point lead in the second half at the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

The Kohl Center has been a nightmare for Ohio State who has not won in Madison since 2000 which is nine straight losses.

The loss is mind-boggling because the Buckeyes played well in all phases, 54 percent from the floor, 88 percent from the foul line, outrebounded the Badgers 25-24 and only had seven turnovers.

The Badgers won the game from the three-point line, 36-9.

Point guard Jordan Taylor scored 27 points, 21 in the second half. Jon Leuer and Mike Bruesewitz each added 12 points.

#13 Wisconsin ups his record to 19-5, 9-3 while the #1 Buckeyes drop to 24-1, 11-1.

William Buford with 21 points and J.J. Sullinger added 19 for Ohio State.

The Northland Vikings honored their senior basketball players before playing Columbus East earlier in the week.

Getting a nice round of applause was Trey Burke, Lavonte Justice, Jakyl Cornley, Roberto Pierre and LaQuan Williams.

Also in the crowded gym were former Vikings stars, J.J. and Jared Sullinger.

The game was over before you knew it.

The Vikings were just too much for a scrappy East team who is short on depth and talent, winning 82-43.

Northland, who upped its record to 17-1, 13-0 in the City North Division, was up 4-0, and 24-6 at the end of the first quarter as East head coach Bob White used two timeouts to stop the bleeding. The Vikings used a fullcourt press and sticky defense to fuel their uptempo attack.

From there it was simply a rout, as Northland lead 48-17 at the half, 68-27 at the end of three quarters and basically just played sportsmanship in the fourth quarter by taking perimeter shots and head coach Satch Sullinger dug deep into his bench to play his reserves.

Trey Burke led the Vikings with 20, Devon Scott added 16, Kechaun Lewis knocked in 12 and Jaylen Benton scored 10.

Columbus East, who fell to a disappointing 2-17, 1-12 in the North Division, was led by Darius White with 13, Carnell Willoughby and Mycol Madison with nine points each and James Davis with 8.

Our players of the game were Darius White of East and Trey Burke of Northland.
