Ohio State’s Seth Towns backed by Chris Holtmann after being detained during protest

Ohio State Buckeyes forward Seth Towns has the support of his coach after being detained while protesting in Columbus.

Towns, an incoming graduate transfer from Harvard, was detained Friday while protesting following the death of George Floyd. An Ohio State spokesperson said Towns was not arrested, and was released and safely at home as of Saturday.

Towns issued a statement on Saturday urging people to speak up in favor of justice.

Towns was backed by Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann, who said the school “fully support(s) our players’ right to peacefully protest.”

Ohio State is taking the right stance here and deserve credit for that, and Towns should be applauded for standing up for justice.

It’s been a difficult week for many in the country, but there is definitely some light out there, too.
