Mark Titus (left) says their feud turned physical at least once.

In 2010, Evan Turner and Mark Titus were at opposite ends of the Ohio State basketball team, and their relationship showed it. 

Turner was on his way to becoming the national player of the year and a top pick in the NBA Draft. Titus was buried at the end of the bench and rarely played, but his blog and writing career were taking off.

Turner’s number was retired by OSU this week, and it marked a high point to a long-contentious relationship between the two.

For WOSU's sports show After the Score, Titus sat down with Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley.
