Buckeyes’ Jared Sullinger Playing Happy
The grin on Ohio State center Jared Sullinger’s face was partly about the Buckeyes’ 88-71 victory over Purdue, partly about the 30 points he scored and mostly because he’d been advised to don’t worry, be happy by those whose opinions he values most.
“My support system: Julian Sullinger, James Sullinger Jr., James Sullinger Sr., Barbara Sullinger and DeAnn Smith told me I don’t smile enough,” Jared Sullinger said. “They said when I’m smiling and having fun, my game comes out.”
In order, that group comprises Jared’s brother, his other brother, his dad, his mom and his girlfriend of nine months.
