This fall, the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame inducted 15 new members, including men’s lacrosse alumni Greg Bice.
Bice, a two-time All-American defenseman for the Buckeyes, was a four-year starter during his Ohio State career from 2001-04. He was named the Great Western Lacrosse League co-Player of the Year as a senior in 2004 when he led the Buckeyes to their second consecutive NCAA Tournament berth. His play helped Ohio State to a 38-20 record over his career and back-to-back GWLL regular season titles in 2003 and 2004.
Following his Ohio State career, Bice went on to play 13 seasons in Major League Lacrosse. He was a four-time MLL All-Star and twice was the New Balance Sportsman of the Year while playing for five different teams, including the hometown Ohio Machine.
Bice continues to be involved with the game of lacrosse and helping others. He’s a color commentator for BTN’s coverage of Big Ten lacrosse and is on the advisory board the non-profit organization Lacrosse the Nations, which is an “international humanitarian organization that utilizes sport and play to foster education and the development of critical life skills for children living in impoverished communities worldwide.” He and his wife, Emily, spent time teaching at the orphanage in Honduras.
Bice is now the sixth men’s lacrosse player to be inducted into the Hall. He joins Dan Cheney (1957-59; inducted 2013), Terry Gilmore (1977-79; inducted 1993), Paul Hartman (1955-57 and head coach 1960-66; inducted 2000), Fred Keller (1955-58; inducted 2008) and Skip Van Bourgondien (1971-73; inducted 2003).
