Lyle's exit leaves another hole for struggling Buckeyes

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Another returning starter is gone from the Ohio State basketball team, casting even more doubt on whether coach Thad Matta can turn around a program that just slogged through a second straight disappointing season.

The school on Saturday announced that JaQuan Lyle, a rising junior and the team's third leading scorer from last season, had quit the team last month. That came to light after Lyle's arrest early Saturday on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct in his Evansville, Indiana, hometown. He hasn't commented publicly on the charges or his reasons for leaving Ohio State.

Lyle, a 6-foot-5 guard who averaged 11.4 points per game in a season that saw the Buckeyes finish without even an NIT invitation, is the fifth and final member of a 2015 recruiting class to depart. The other four previously transferred out, each saying Ohio State wasn't a good fit for them.
