COLUMBUS, Ohio – Chris Holtmann, head coach of the Ohio State men’s basketball team, announced the addition of Justice Sueing to the 2019-20 roster Wednesday.
Sueing, a 6-for-7-inch forward from Honolulu, Hawaii, played the last two seasons at California before electing to transfer. He will sit out the 2019-20 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remaining starting with the 2020-21 season.
“We are excited about the addition of Justice to our program,” Holtmann said. “He brings experience, positional versatility, ability to score as well as a natural ability to impact the game in a variety of ways. He is hungry to continue to grow and develop as a player. This upcoming season where he will sit out, will be important for his overall growth. We were really impressed with his maturity in recruiting him and we believe his experiences his first two years in college are going to benefit him moving forward here at Ohio State.”
Sueing played in all 31 games for the Golden Bears last season, averaging a team-high 14.3 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. He also shot 78.2 percent from the free throw line, handed out 61 assists and recorded a team-high 52 steals. As a freshman in 2017-18, Sueing, who went to high school at Santa Ana Mater Dei in California, ranked second on the team with 13.8 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest.
