Portions of this story from Wright State press release

The Wright State men’s basketball team will travel to the University of Missouri-Kansas City as part of the 2012 Sears BracketBuster Series to be played on Saturday, February 18.  A game time is yet to be decided.

The teams have met twice before as Wright State won both meetings during the 1990-91 season–98-90 in Kansas City (1/5/91) and 101-90 (1/19/91) in the first year of the WSU Nutter Center.  The Kangaroos are currently 9-15 overall and 3-9 in the Summit League while the Raiders sport a record of 11-12 overall and 6-5 in the Horizon League.

Sullinger drops in 40 points against IUPUI

We all knew before coming to Ohio State, Jared Sullinger was a great basketball player.

So when he scored 40 points against IUPUI recently, that was not shocking at all.

But those points came in a week when his uncle, Harold Sullinger, a former basketball player at Iowa, passed away.

The 6’9, 270-pound Sullinger, a freshman, set an Ohio State record for freshman with 40 points, including 26 in the second half, leading a rally by the Buckeyes to get past Indiana-Purdue-Indianapolis in Value City Arena.

This was the first 40-point game by an Ohio State player  since Dennis Hopson had 41 in a loss at Dayton in 1986. Sullinger also grabbed 13 rebounds and set a couple more freshman records by sinking 16 of 23 free throws.

The 40 points by Sullinger might’ve been all-for-not if OSU had lost. The Buckeyes were losing 50-41 with 12:30 to go in the second half. Sullinger scored 14 points in a 24-4 run which turned a possible upset into win number seven for the 7-0 OSU squad.

The Buckeyes have not lost a home game to an opponent outside of the six major conferences (Big Ten, Big East, Pac 10, ACC, SEC and WAC) since losing at St. John Arena to Bowling Green.

The Jaguars known to everybody as IUPUI, is actually Indiana-Purdue-Indianapolis, beat Ohio University in Athens last weekend, 66-56.

Leroy Nobles scored 23 points, including 11 during a key run in the game led the Jaguars to the win.

The Jaguars upped their record to 5-6 while Ohio drops to 5-4.

IUPUI trailed 40-39 after the Bobcats used a 9-0 run to pull ahead on DeVaughn Washington’s layup with 8:25 to go in the second half.

The Jaguars then took control of the game by going on a 16-9 run sparked by Nobles, who had three, three-point baskets to put the school from Indianapolis up 55-49 with 2:05 left.

D.J. Cooper of Ohio had an off-night. He came into the game averaging 19 points, but was just 1 of 9 from the field scoring four points.
