Ohio State men beat weary Oakland, 92-63

The Ohio State basketball team was aware of Oakland University who beat Tennessee earlier in the year. They also knew that the Grizzlies were very fatigued having played four games in six days.

So they turned up the defensive pressure and withstood several comeback attempts to win 92-63 over the team from the Detroit suburb of Rochester.

Deshaun Thomas scored 17 points and Jared Sullinger in only 19 minutes of play, had 16 points and nine rebounds. Jon Diebler and David Lighty added 13 points apiece and William Buford scored 12.

The Buckeyes pushed their record to 12-0 while Oakland falls to 7-8.

Travis Bader led the Grizzlies with 15 points. His teammate, center Keith Benson, an NBA first-round projected draft choice by several basketball publications next year, was held to eight points, which is nine below his average. The Buckeyes challenged him everytime they could and were very successful as he only blocked one shot.

The 12-0 start by the Buckeyes is it’s best start since the 1990-91 team which won its first 17 games.
