Video: Chris Holtmann Breaks Down 90-59 Win Over Alabama A&M in Final Non-Conference Game, Looks Ahead to Northwestern Matchup

Twelve Buckeyes scored during a 31-point rout of Alabama A&M in Ohio State's final non-conference contest of the regular season.

Brice Sensabaugh led the way once again with 21 points, his third 20-point performance of the season, and Justice Sueing added 18 as four Buckeyes finished in double figures by the end of the 90-59 victory.

But even more importantly as Ohio State heads into a stretch of 19 straight Big Ten games over the next couple months, the Buckeyes had their full roster available for the first time all year. Eugene Brown made his season debut with a two-point effort in five minutes of action and Isaac Likekele, who Chris Holtmann only expected to use in an emergency ahead of the game, finished with five assists over nine minutes in his first contest since Dec. 3.

Following the contest, Holtmann said he was "really proud" of Likekele's contributions, which should only help the Buckeyes in a matchup with what Holtmann called "the best Northwestern we’ve seen in our five-plus years" in Evanston, Illinois, on Sunday.

Check out everything Holtmann said in his post-game interview in the video above.
