MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The major scoring milestone E.J. Liddell reached will give the Ohio State star another feat to reflect on later.
The way he and his Buckeyes teammates cleaned up on the glass for a well-rounded road win was much more relevant in the moment.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — E.J. Liddell scored 28 points and No. 21 Ohio State shot 50% to defeat No. 22 Wisconsin 73-55 on Saturday.
The Buckeyes (8-2) outscored the Badgers by 13 points in the second half, running away with the game after leading by five points at halftime.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Meechie Johnson Jr. made a game-winning 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left and Ohio State beat No. 21 Seton Hall 79-76 on Monday night in the Fort Myers Tip-Off.
Seton Hall guard Jamir Harris stole it and raced for a fast-break layup to tie it at 76 with 15.9 seconds left.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Five players scored in double figures for No. 19 Ohio State, which routed Bowling Green 89-58 on Monday night.
After escaping with closer-than-expected wins in their first two games, the Buckeyes started pouring it on early and never allowed the Mid-American Conference squad to get close.
