Mike Conley

Last week, Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley was at the Ohio State/Wisconsin college football game getting special recognition for a large donation that he made to the Ohio State University basketball program.

Conley played for the Buckeyes from 06-07 and donated a cool $500,000 to the program as noted on the Grizzlies official team website:

Conley, a 2007 letterwinner for the Ohio State Men’s Basketball team, recently gifted $500,000 to the Ohio State Men’s and Women’s Basketball programs. In recognition of his donation, the weight room at the programs’ practice facility will be named the “Mike Conley Jr. Strength and Conditioning Room.”

Well played Mike, well played….
