More Like Long Day State

By Chris Lauderback on December 8, 2012 at 1:37p

The Buckeyes put four in double figures led by 18 from Deshaun Thomas as Ohio State wore out a well-traveled Long Beach State squad, 89-55, this afternoon in a sparsely populated Value City Arena.

Slam Thompson set a career high with 13 points thanks to three spectacular dunks while LaQuinton Ross added 16 points and nine rips. 

Lenzelle Smith Jr. shook off a two-game shooting slump, adding 14 points on 5/7 from the field. 

The win improves the Buckeyes to 6-1 on the season. 

Savannah State visits the Schott next Wednesday at 7:00 pm.

congrats to rogers for his first points of his career. got a warm fuzzy feeling on that nice move he pulled underneath the rim

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Fun game to watch, and glad to see the bench developing.

This is Ross's team. Love Crafty and Deshaun, but LaQ in a groove gets the whole team into a groove.

Goodness, Matta looks like a slightly older Trey Parker in that photo. Maybe he coaches Baseketball on the side.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

I'm a few days behind. 
I loved to see so many players scoring points in this game. 
Also, LQRossIsThePresent, that is all.
