COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Kyle Young will miss Ohio State’s road game at Michigan State on Thursday due to a concussion, coach Chris Holtmann said during his pregame news conference Wednesday.
“Kyle Young will be out with a concussion for the game. It’s significant,” Holtmann said. “There’s no minimizing the hit to our depth and team.”
Young’s head collided with a Michigan player late in the Buckeyes’ 92-87 loss to to the No. 3 Wolverines on Sunday. Despite the loss, Ohio State remained as the fourth-ranked team in the country.
The Spartans (12-9) are having an average season for their standards but are coming off their biggest win of the season, upsetting No. 5 Illinois 81-72 on Tuesday.
OSU’s loss to Michigan snapped the Buckeyes’ seven-game win streak, but they still carry a six-game road win streak as they travel to East Lansing.
Tipoff is set for 9:00 p.m.
