#OSUrank (#14) – Mason Cox

I’m ranking the OSU basketball squad NBA-style leading up to OSU’s first exhibition affair on November 1 with Ottawa. Use the #OSUrank hashtag on Twitter to join the convo.

Who: Mason Cox #30

Why: Really it’s pretty remarkable he’s on this list at all. Our count of “members of the Cox family who didn’t play one minute of high school basketball but somehow found our way onto the OSU basketball team” currently sits at two[1. Including one of our own here at PFB — Nolan.].

Your move, Austin[2. He’s the third brother, also 6’9+, and he may have some grad school eligibility left…].

Seriously though, Mason is a big (well, tall) body that can help push Cobbins (and Jurick?) in practice and give Ford the depth he needs for scrimmages[3. Something we apparently lacked last year given that Ford was running with the teams half the time.].

He can block shots, run the floor, and apparently sports a punchy turnaround hook.

Unfortunately he will never be 1/4 the dunker (or FIFA gamer) his older brother is.

Twitter: @masonsixtencox

Stats: 3 GP (that is literally the only number in his career statistics).

Twitter reaction:

While you're here, we'd like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It's a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.

The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we've been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up.
