The Ohio State Buckeyes had another disappointing and tumultuous season in 2023-24 that included the firing of head coach Chris Holtmann. Assistant coach Jake Diebler was promoted to interim head coach, and things improved immediately. Diebler got off to a tremendous start by leading Ohio State to a win over then-second-ranked Purdue in his first game as coach. The Buckeyes won five of their final seven games after that upset. The Buckeyes were in the bottom third of the Big Ten standings. Their metrics were of a mediocre team that did not stand out in any category. As a result of their improved play, Ohio State made Diebler the permanent head coach.

Despite its well-deserved reputation as a football powerhouse, the Ohio State Buckeyes also have a proud and highly successful basketball reputation. Ohio State has ten Final Fours in its history, with one national championship and four runner-up finishes.

Additionally, the Buckeyes made the NCAA Tournament 27 times in their history. The Buckeyes emerged as a national power in the mid-1940s under Harold Olsen and made three consecutive Final Fours from 1944 through 1946. Fred Taylor was the next great coach at OSU and led the Buckeyes to three straight national championship game appearances from 1960 through 1962. His 1960 national championship team included superstars such as Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek. And a future Hall of Fame coach named Bob Knight.

While there have been some high moments, things have not exactly gone as planned for Chris Holtmann and Ohio State Basketball in recent years. The Buckeyes won at least 20 games in each of his first five seasons in Columbus, but the program really struggled last year. Ohio State finished the season under .500 for the first time in 19 years and was an abysmal 5-15 against Big Ten play, earning a 13th-place finish in the league. This year was not better, and Holtmann did not survive this season, as he was fired in February.
