Ex-Bucks find good homes

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.
