Jackson to stay with Ohio State

March 14, 1991

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State's Jim Jackson, the Big Ten's Player of the Year, says he has decided to stay with the Buckeyes, at least for his junior season.

The 6-foot-6 Jackson, who had been considering turning pro after the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament, averaged 18.8 points a game and 5.3 rebounds while shooting 53 percent from the field during the season.

The Buckeyes will play Towson State tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. in a first-round game in Dayton.

"I'm going to be back next year because I feel I have a lot yet to accomplish, both academically and in basketball," Jackson said Tuesday.
