OSU Wins First Contest Against OU In 19 Years
Aaron Craft scored 18 points – including eight free throws down the stretch – to help No. 10 Ohio State hold off neighboring rival Ohio 79-69 on Tuesday night.
Amir Williams had a career-high 14 points, reserve Sam Thompson had 12 and LaQuinton Ross added 10 for the Buckeyes (2-0).
Ohio State built a 12-point halftime lead and never trailed in a game with little continuity due to the constant whistles calling the new contact rules. Ohio State was 37 of 50 at the line.
Stevie Taylor, a Gahanna native, and Nick Kellogg, son of former OSU star Clark Kellogg, each had 21 points for Ohio (1-1), down by as many as 17 before cutting the gap to five points with 4 minutes left.
The teams, just 75 miles apart, hadn’t met on the court in 19 years.
