Big man Lee tranferring to Ohio State from Temple

Anthony Lee
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State has filled a big hole with a big man.

The Buckeyes confirmed Saturday that Temple post Anthony Lee is transferring in and will play next season.

The 6-foot-9 Lee, set to graduate from Temple in May, has one year of eligibility remaining.

Lee, from Columbia, Md., averaged 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds for the Owls last year. He adds an inside presence for the Buckeyes (25-10), who were often overmatched in the paint with 6-11 junior Amir Williams and 6-8 Trey McDonald combining for 9.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

The Buckeyes have scholarships to give after the graduation of Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr., and with leading scorer and rebounder LaQuinton Ross and sub Amedeo Della Valle leaving the program to pursue pro careers.

Lee did not play in 2010-11 because of a back injury. He played the last three seasons for the Owls before deciding to transfer.

He shot 49.5 percent from the field (153 of 309) and 66 percent at the line in 28 games last season with Temple. Lee had 11 double-doubles, including 23 points and 14 rebounds against Texas.

In 92 college games, he has averaged 9.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and one blocked shot per game. Lee started 27 of 28 games as a junior, 29 of 32 as a sophomore and 17 of 32 as a redshirt-freshman.
