But the OSU head coach said he spoke to Stockman and has every reason to believe the Clemson transfer will play in Ohio State's next game.

Stockman leads the Buckeyes in...

The Cleveland franchise continues to evolve in the LeBron James era. First, Ricky Davis... and now, the Cavs trade Darius Miles to Portland for point guard Jeff McInnis and forward Ruben Boumtje Boumtje. Miles had skipped practice a few days earlier, supposedly unhappy with his lack of playing time. Like James, Miles came to the NBA straight out of high school, but with the Clippers.
