COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – LaQuinton Ross, Ohio State’s leading scorer and rebounder, is giving up his senior season to pursue a pro career.

Ross, a 6-foot-8 junior from Jackson, Miss., averaged 15.2 points and 5.9 rebounds a game while leading the Buckeyes to a 25-10 record last season that ended with a second-round, 60-59 loss to Dayton in the NCAA tournament.

He scored at least 15 points in 18 of the last 26 regular-season games and hit double figures in 17 of his final 19 games overall.

Ross becomes the second Buckeyes player in a week to leave the program early. Substitute guard Amedeo Della Valle announced late last week he was withdrawing from Ohio State after his sophomore season to play pro ball in Europe.
