Buckeyes Make it Three Straight Losses to Jayhawks

For the third time in 12 months, the Kansas Jayhawks took down the Ohio State Buckeyes, this time, 74-66, today in the Schott. 

The Buckeyes actually led, 31-23, in the first half but the latest episode of Clank City was too much to overcome as Kansas used a 15-4 run in the 2nd half to pull away. 

Ohio State shot a dismal 31% for the game including 25% in the final 20 minutes, missing 17 of 19 shots at one point paced by a 3/13 effort from Lenzelle Smith Jr. Aaron Craft (2/9) and Sam Thompson (3/10) also struggled to make shots.

A 23-11 edge in points off turnovers was the only thing keeping this one close. Well, that and Kansas totally spacing out in the last few minutes.

The loss drops Ohio State to 9-2 and gives them exactly zero quality wins in two attempts on the non-conference slate.
