The first national predictions for the 2018-19 Big Ten men’s basketball season are out, and they don’t forecast great things for Chris Holtmann’s second season at Ohio State.

In his offseason Big Ten power rankings, CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein predicts a 10th-place finish for the Buckeyes. Last season, Ohio State was among the nation's biggest surprise stories and finished in second place, one game out of first.

However, the Buckeyes lose 56.9 percent of their scoring from a season ago including their three of their top five scorers and their top two rebounders.
