Just like football. 

In a complete talent mismatch, Ohio State used big runs to build a 36-17 halftime lead and never looked back on the way to a 70-44 win over Nebraska tonight in the Schott. 

Deshaun Thomas keyed the victory with 22 points, 18 in the first half, on 9/16 from the floor with eight boards. 

Lenzelle Smith also went off for 17 points while Aaron Craft added eight assists and six rebounds. 

The win improves Ohio State to 11-2 on the season and 1-0 in conference play with a much tougher test on the docket Saturday at 2:15pm in Champaign.
