Aaron Craft is one of the most unique college basketball players in the country. The Ohio State Buckeyes‘ point guard has proven he is a winner on the court and a recent video released, celebrating National Pi Day, shows he’s also a winner off the court.
Craft is a hustling machine and an animal on the court. If you are matched up against the somewhat undersized guard, you can basically assume you won’t be scoring much that day. As the best defender in the Big Ten and one of the best defensive stoppers in the nation, Craft draws respect from nearly every fan and expert — unless you’re his opponent.
He can drive teams mad and he has done so for four years as the Big Ten’s most intense defender. Well, he’s pretty intense when it comes to his studies, too, apparently. Check out how smart Craft is when reciting the numerical form of pi to about the 50th — or larger — decimal.
Well, I did a little math of my own and counted out 63 decimal places in which the Ohio State guard spouted off pi to. What an incredible memorization tactic and intellectual feat for the senior basketball star.
This could be a memorization thing, but he has done intellectual things in the past — he even solved a Rubik’s Cube on camera not too long ago. Yes, Craft is basically a genius off the court and it translates well to his game on the court as well.
Yes, that was extremely accurate.
