Ex-Bucks find good homes




BY MIKE DeCOURCY
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        UC forward Jermaine Tate is one of several players who found homes elsewhere after beginning their careers under Randy Ayers at Ohio State:

        • Jami Bosley, 6-foot guard, Akron. As a junior, Bosley led the Zips in scoring (18.7) and assists (3.8). Akron finished 18-9. “Every team needs someone that's got to take the big shot or make the big play,” Akron coach Dan Hipsher said, “and he's not afraid to do that.”

        • Shaun Stonerook, 6-8 forward, Ohio. At 13.6 points per game, Stonerook was one of three double-figure scorers for an 18-10 Bobcats team.

        • Damon Stringer, 5-11 guard, Cleveland State. Stringer sat out the 1998-99 season to establish eligibility with the Vikings, who finished 14-14. Stringer led the Buckeyes in scoring and assists in each of his two years there.

        • Trent Jackson, 6-4 guard, Bowling Green. As a sophomore, had 15 points and five rebounds against Western Michigan, 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting against Central Michigan.
