For Ohio State, the shine of a big win Saturday against Long Beach State was marred by a minor injury to star guard Aaron Craft. Craft needed six stitches above his eye following the 89-55 victory over the 49ers.

The news came via Cleveland Plain-Dealer Ohio State beat writer Doug Lesmerises who tweeted the following:

Thad Matta said Aaron Craft will need about 6 stitches for cut near eye. Matta also said he can't handle looking at blood.

The news followed a quiet day for Craft, who was picked as a member of the preseason All-Big Ten team back in October. Craft played a season-low 19 minutes, and finished with just five points and three assists. He is averaging 12 points and 4.3 assists on the season.

Luckily for Ohio State, the injury doesn't seem to be serious enough where Craft will have to miss time because of it.
