AN OVERVIEW Jordan Sibert provided support off the bench in his freshman season, averaging just over eight minutes a game with 2.1 points and 1.0 rebound per game on the season. Known for his ability to cut between defenders and get to the rim with speed and athleticism, the sophomore guard had a career game vs. Michigan in the Big Ten semifinal a year ago. Although he only tallied two points, Sibert's spark off the bench eased the Buckeyes out of first-half slump and into position for an 18-point lead in the second half and eventual win.
