Ohio State Runs Past Youngstown State 75-56

The Buckeye basketball team took the floor once again this season Tuesday night against Youngstown State. The Bucks are coming off of a tough, close win against Bucknell. The test came after a 10 day lay-off and Ohio State looked rusty and out of sorts to start this game.

1st Half
Chris Holtmann’s Buckeyes got off to a rough start against the Penguins and fell behind 7-0 early not scoring in the first four minutes of the game. The whole first half would be a struggle as they couldn’t score easily and failed to stop Youngstown State early on. Darius Quisenberry and Naz Bohannon were scoring easily for the Penguins and were the main reasons why the Buckeyes found themselves down the entire half. The defense would shape up and the offense started to form a rhythm as the half went on. A huge made three off a scramble from C.J. Jackson and a stop after to end the half really gave the Bucks some momentum heading into the locker room. They still however found themselves down 25-22 and would have to make some new adjustments for the final 20 minutes of play.

2nd Half
Ohio State came out of the break looking much more comfortable and quickly fought back into a lead. Kaleb Wesson did however pick up his third foul very early in the half. Coach Holtmann decided to leave him in the game and Kaleb certainly stepped up his play. Wesson took a charge almost immediately after picking up his third foul in a momentum-shifting play. After this, the Buckeyes began almost exclusively playing through him going inside and allowing him to read the defense. He found a great rhythm and put up 26 of his 31 total points in the final half. He drew numerous fouls and converted at the rim time and time again. This really forced the Penguins to double him and perimeter shots opened up for the likes of C.J. Jackson and Luther Muhammad who also got going in the game. Both players primarily handled the ball, made play after play, and made shot after shot. They absolutely controlled the pace and flow of the game as the Buckeyes began to extend the lead and run away with the game. Ohio State tightened up their play and would go on to win 75-56 in Columbus.
