Buckeyes coach Chris Holtmann gets speeding ticket before Maryland win

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Ohio State men’s basketball coach Chris Holtmann said he was written up for speeding Saturday on his way to Value City Arena for a game against Maryland.

“He got me pretty good,” Holtmann said Monday during his weekly news conference. “I deserved it. I was anxious to get into work and watch a couple more hours of film. I had no idea how fast I was driving.”

Holtmann originally brought up his speeding ticket during his weekly radio show on The Fan 97.1 FM. When asked how his weekend was, Holtmann responded, “Good. Outside of the ticket I got coming into work.”

“He gave me my speed, and I said I deserved whatever you’re going to give me then,” Holtmann said.

The Buckeyes went on to beat Maryland in double overtime, 79-75, to snap a five-game losing streak. Ohio State returns to the floor on Tuesday night at No. 20 Wisconsin.
