Aaron Craft ties Big Ten record for career steals

Bloomington, Indiana- Ohio State senior point guard Aaron Craft tied the Big Ten’s all-time steals lead during Sunday’s game at Indiana.

The record of 324 was previously held by Bruce Douglas, who played at Illinois from 1983-86. The NCAA did not officially recognize steals until 1985-86.

Craft also ranks seventh on the Big Ten’s all-time assist list and could move into to the top three by season’s end. 

Craft is a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation’s top point guard, and the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. The Findlay, Ohio native is a three-time Academic All-American and has played in 143 career games heading into his final regular season game next Sunday vs. Michigan State.
