Much like the football team’s head coach, Ryan Day, did, Ohio State men’s basketball head coach Chris Holtmann shared a video through the basketball team’s Twitter account about the importance of following the guidelines to help prevent the coronavirus (COVID-19).

“I just wanted to remind you of a few things the medical community has reminded our family of in the last week or so during these uncertain times,” Holtmann said in the video. “No. 1, please practice social distancing, it’s so important. That includes, for those that can, working from home. I know, it’s hard.
“No. 2, as much as possible, let’s all be mindful of the most vulnerable in our community to this infection, let’s find ways where we can think about, and reach out, to them. No. 3, wash your hands thoroughly and regularly and the surfaces around you.
“And lastly, a big thanks to all of the healthcare workers in Columbus, in the state of Ohio, and around the world, thanks so much.”
Holtmann and the Buckeyes had their season cut short when the Big Ten canceled the conference tournament, and the NCAA shut down the NCAA Tournament, where Ohio State was projected to be a No. 5 seed by ESPN.
