COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The month of January had been unkind for Ohio State and its sophomore center Kaleb Wesson.
The Buckeyes were a woeful 1-6 in January with the typically reliable Wesson averaging just over 11 points and six rebounds in those games.
But Wesson and the Buckeyes got February off to a strong start on Saturday. He had 21 of his game-high 27 points in the first half as Ohio State defeated Rutgers 76-62.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Kaleb Wesson was alone behind the defense, with a chance for an easy dunk or layup.

"He just competes," Michigan coach John Beilein said. "He's relentless in his desire to win."
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Maryland's depth and shooting touch were too much for Ohio State.

CHICAGO (AP) — Ohio State was locked in a tight game with UCLA when Buckeyes coach Chris Holtmann made a small tweak to his approach against the Bruins.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State's first half against mid-major Youngstown State was a train wreck. But then the No. 15 Buckeyes managed to get back on track with their game plan — primarily getting the ball inside to Kaleb Wesson.
The 6-foot-9 sophomore took control in the second half, scoring 26 of his career-high 31 and rallying Ohio State to a 75-56 rout of the Penguins on Tuesday night.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Bucknell saw its chance but couldn't quite get there.
Trailing No. 15 Ohio State by two points, the Bison had the ball after a Buckeyes turnover with 14 seconds left. But a 3-point shot by Bruce Moore bounced off the front of the rim. Ohio State rebounded and held on for a 73-71 victory Saturday.
CHICAGO (AP) — After going scoreless in the previous game, Keyshawn Woods was determined to make a positive impact Wednesday night.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio State knew what awaited when the Buckeyes agreed to help Cincinnati reopen its on-campus arena. It was even louder than expected until the closing seconds, when the Bearcats fans were silently filing out.
With a solid effort, the visitors from up north spoiled the party.

Who's gone: F Keita Bates-Diop, F Jae'Sean Tate, G Kam Williams, G Andrew Dakich.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann warned his team to avoid a letdown after his team's upset of No. 3 Purdue.
A letdown at this point for the Buckeyes would be as hard to imagine as them owning sole possession of first place of the Big Ten in mid-February.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — After starting slow at times this season, No. 17 Ohio State didn't waste time jumping all over Indiana on Tuesday night.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) — Ohio State opened up the season without much expectation. So, making the Top 25 and leading the Big Ten surely wasn't anticipated.
Now, when the new weekly rankings come out, the Buckeyes will likely have both.
"We had talked about it a little bit," first-year coach Chris Holtmann said. "We talked about it a little bit when we beat (No.4) Michigan State because I think that alerted people."
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A delay and evacuation after a fire alarm couldn't deter Ohio State from winning its fourth straight game when Jae'Sean Tate scored 19 points in an 80-67 win against Appalachian State at Value City Arena on Saturday.
Keita Bates-Diop added 18 points, Kaleb Wesson had 16, and Kam Williams 11 for the Buckeyes (9-3), who also opened the season with four consecutive victories.
