Cincinnati Reds legend George Foster will replace Hall of Famer Rod Carew as the speaker at tonight’s Schear Family Heart in Sports Community Conversation Series at 7 p.m. at the Dayton Marriott.
Carew, who had a heart transplant in December, was unable to travel after being hospitalized with a slight fever, according to a statement from his office.
“Rod Carew is very sorry as he was really looking forward to appearing at the Dayton Heart Institute. He apologizes for any inconvenience his absence may have caused.”
Foster will talk about his career with the Reds and be joined by legendary Dayton Daily News sports writer Hal McCoy, who was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002. Foster, a key member of the Big Red Machine team that won back-to-back World Series titles in 1975-76, was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 2003. A five-time All-Star, Foster was the National League MVP in 1977.

COLUMBUS — Ohio State basketball finalized its nonconference schedule Tuesday, announcing an intriguing slate for Chris Holtmann’s second year as coach of the Buckeyes.
The season begins Nov. 7 at Cincinnati, where the Bearcats will be opening their newly renovated home arena after a year of playing their “home” games at Northern Kentucky.
Ohio State hasn’t played at UC since 1920, and games between the Buckeyes and Bearcats on the hardwood have been few and far between in the last 56 years since UC upset Ohio State in back-to-back national championship games during the otherwise glorious Jerry Lucas era.
This game was originally announced last fall as part of a home-and-home arrangement.
“We are excited about the challenge of this nonconference schedule,” Holtmann said in a release. “Our hope is that it prepares us for the grind of a 20-game Big Ten season. We believe the schedule includes many exciting matchups that will be tremendous tests and games ‘Buckeye Nation’ will enjoy.”
The UC matchup is one of three games Ohio State will play against a team from Ohio. The Buckeyes will play host to Cleveland State on Nov. 23 and Youngstown State on Dec. 18.
The game against the Vikings will be played at historic St. John Arena, the first contest for the men’s team at its former home since December 2010.
Including the Bearcats, Ohio State’s nonconference slate has four teams that made the NCAA tournament last spring.
The Buckeyes play at Creighton on Nov. 15, host Syracuse on Nov. 28 and play UCLA in Chicago on Dec. 22.

The biggest weakness for the Wright State basketball team during a successful, championship season was depth, and it’s something that could be in play again in 2018-19.
The Raiders have two open scholarships after releasing incoming freshman Jeremiah Davenport from his letter of intent and allowing redshirt sophomore Everett Winchester a transfer to Florida Atlantic.
WSU coach Scott Nagy said the waiting game could go all the way until the school year begins.
“There’s still guys transferring now, there will be guys transferring in July, there will be guys transferring in August,” he said. “I mean, you wouldn’t think that would be the case but it happens.”
Nagy said he is looking for a player who fits the program, not just someone to fill a vacancy.
