Rob's Hoops Notebook
By Rob Ogden
It's been expected for a while, but Ohio State coach Thad Matta made it official Sunday: freshman guard Kam Williams will redshirt.
Williams, a Baltimore, Md. native, spent the first two months of the season getting back into shape after contracting mononucleosis during pre-season training.
He missed about a month of practice because of the illness, Matta said earlier this season.
Last month, Matta said Williams was "about 90 percent" back to form while trying to regain all the weight he lost while ill.
Williams, a 6-foot-2 combo guard, averaged 21 points per game during his senior year of high school.
Della Valle Good to Go
Sophomore guard Amedeo Della Valle is back practicing and available for Monday's game at Nebraska, Matta said.
Della Valle missed Thursday's loss at Minnesota because of a bone bruise he suffered during the Buckeyes' Jan. 12 loss to Iowa.
Delle Valle is averaging 5.2 points per game and shooting a team-leading 37.3 percent from 3-point range while averaging 13.1 minutes per game.
