The National Hockey League playoffs are underway, but the Columbus Blue Jackets are watching from home after an injury-riddled season.

Senior point guard Aaron Craft joins WOSU Public Media’s Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley to talk about his career at Ohio State. Craft has stolen and harassed his way into the permanent memory of OSU basketball fans. The pesky senior point guard known for his great defense plays his final game in Value City Arena on Sunday. We caught up with him to talk about his four years at OSU, Taco Tuesdays and being one of the most hated college players in recent history. Craft and fellow senior Lenzelle Smith Jr. are preparing for their final regular season game as a college basketball player. Is there truth to the rumor that Craft could pull a “Greg Paulus” and play some college football this year?
