Over the years, Ohio State Buckeyes teams, whether they’re good or bad, have had trouble winning in 80-year-old Williams Arena on the University of Minnesota campus.

However, the #1-ranked Buckeyes overcame the jinx, the fans and the elevated floor of Williams Arena to beat the 18th-ranked Gophers for only the second time in the past six visits to Williams Arena, 82-69.

David Lighty, the only player on the Ohio State roster who had ever won a game at Williams Arena, led the way with 19 points. The sixth-year senior along with Jared Sullinger, Dallas Lauderdale and DeShaun Thomas helped shutdown the Minnesota Gophers inside trio of Ralph Sampson III, Trevor Mbakwe and Colton Iverson.

The Gophers have had problems in their backcourt since point guard Al Nolen broke his foot and sixth man Devoe Joseph transferred. Head coach Tubby Smith has had to rely more on his inside players.

Sullinger scored 18 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for his 11th double-double of the season.

The Buckeyes also controlled the offensive boards with 22.

OSU improves to 24-0, 11-0 in the Big Ten, while Minnesota drops to 16-7, 5-6.
