McConnell. Those defenders gave Russell trouble Saturday evening, as he shot a dreadful 3-for-19 from the field in the Buckeyes’ loss to the Wildcats. Russell refused to give a specific Arizona player credit following the win, though. Just asked Russell who the best defender he’s faced this year: “Nobody.”— Ari Wasserman (@AriWasserman) March 22, 2015That’s obviously a bit of sour grapes from the star freshman, but he deserves to be a little frustrated following what probably is going to be his final game as a college player. Ohio State fans are certainly going to miss him.last_img
