Former Buckeye basketball star opens barber shop


Just off High Street on campus, you will find 12 on Twelfth.

It’s a brand new barber shop that is the brainchild of Buckeye Basketball great Scoonie Penn.

That’s right, that Scoonie Penn who led the Buckeyes to the Final Four in 1999 now owns a barber shop.

Scoonie has always had a love affair with barber shops and he has always wanted to own one.

You can go there and get a great haircut but you can also debate sports or whatever hot topic.

“A barber shop is always a part of the community,” Penn said. “It’s a place where people come and they have debates about sports, about politics, about what is going on in the neighborhood."

Do you have an amazing story? An incredible woman or man cave? Some amazing talents? It doesn't have to be about sports. Please click the link and send Dom your ideas:
