Ross Goes Off for 22 as Buckeyes Roll

Finally getting minutes for long stretches, LaQuinton Ross exploded for a career-high 22 points as Ohio State shook off the loss to Duke by blowing out Northern Kentucky, 70-43, this afternoon in the Schott. 

Ross was in control all day hitting 8/12 from the floor, including 3/6 from downtown, and he did work on the glass pulling down eight boards. 

Deshaun Thomas added 14 but was hardly dominant as he struggled from the field (5/14) as the Buckeyes mostly abandoned the pick and pop, instead running him off staggered screens and feeding the post. 

The Buckeyes shot just 38% overall but hit 17/20 from the stripe while holding the Norse to 27% from the field. 

The win improves the Buckeyes to 5-1. 

Kyle will have your full recap shortly.
