Ohio State’s men’s basketball team lost in its bid for a transfer to add to the 2012 recruiting class earlier this week.

Mississippi State transfer Rodney Hood choose the Duke Blue Devils over the Buckeyes.

Hood was named to the SEC All-Freshman team last season after finishing the season as the Bulldogs third-leading rebounder at 8.4 and scorer at 10.3.

The 6-foot-8 forward from Meridian, Mississippi, is a friend and former AAU teammate of Ohio State sophomore LaQuinton Ross.

Marshall of Akron Zips named MAC East Player of the Week


CLEVELAND – Akron Zips center Zeke Marshall was named Mid-American Conference East Division Player of the Week the league office announced on Monday.

Marshall, a junior from McKeesport, Pa., earned his first MAC East Player of the week honor of the season and the second of his career (Jan. 10, 2011).  He helped the Zips to a 2-0 records last week with victories over Arkansas-Pine Bluff (87-64) and Florida A&M (91-69).  For the week, he averaged 17.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.0 blocked shots, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal per game.

In Thursday’s matchup with Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Marshall scored a season-high 21 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field and 7-of-10 from the charity stripe.  He also grabbed six boards and blocked seven shots, setting the Rhodes Arena record for blocked shots by an Akron player and posting the fourth total of six or more blocked shots in a single game of his career.  His seven blocked shots also helped Akron break the Rhodes Arena record for blocked shots by a team with 12.

Against Florida A&M on Saturday, Marshall just missed his first double-double of the season, posting 13 points, nine rebounds and blocking three more shots.  He closed the week shooting 68.4 percent from the field (13-of-19) and 72.7 percent from the free throw stripe (8-of-11).

Through Dec. 18, Marshall leads the MAC in field goal percentage (.651) and blocked shots (2.9 blocks/game) and is blocking 10.11 percent of the shots taken by opponents while on the floor, the tenth-best mark in the nation.  His 2.9 blocks/game average is 19th-best in the nation (through Dec. 18).

Marshall joins Akron junior Quincy Diggs as a recipient of MAC East Player of the Week honors this season.  Diggs earned his first POW on Nov. 14 following Akron’s 2-0 start to the season, which included a road victory at Mississippi State on Nov. 9.

Lack of success at Ole Miss leads Nutt to resign

Two years ago, Mississippi Rebels head coach Houston Nutt seemed to have his football program on the upswing.

The Arkansas native arrived in Oxford, Mississippi after a 10-year career at SEC rival Arkansas and he helped lead the Rebels off to a good start of 18-8 during the first two years which included Cotton Bowl wins over Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in back-to-back years.

The Rebels had not enjoyed that kind of success two seasons in a row in almost 40 years. But everyone overlooked the fact that Nutt achieved success with the players left over from previous head coach Ed Orgeron. He could not upgrade the roster with his own recruits.

That is the reason why on Monday, the 54-year-old Nutt announced he’ll resign at the end of the season. He’ll stay on to coach the final three games against Louisiana Tech, LSU and Mississippi State, according to Rebels athletic director Pete Boone.

Ole Miss has lost 12 straight SEC football games, including the 30-13 debacle last Saturday against Kentucky. The Rebels are a disappointing 2-7, 0-6 in the tough SEC this year.

Nutt, who is earning $2.7 million this season, has a 24-23 record at Ole Miss.

The downward spiral for Nutt and his program was in the 2010 season opener, when Jacksonville State upset the Rebels in double overtime 49-48. The fans in Oxford were appalled and called for his resignation. That was the first time in the school’s football history that the Rebels had lost to a Football Championship Subdivision team.

The Rebels can’t seem to find and keep a football coach for long. The next hiring will be their fifth since 1998 and third since 2007.
