Ohio State struggled at times against UMASS-Lowell's zone defense, but the Buckeyes hit just enough shots and made just enough stops defensively to beat the River Hawks on Sunday, 74-64.
Notably, this was the first game in program history ever played in the Covelli Center. The arena is home to Ohio State fencing, men's and women's volleyball, men's and women's gymnastics and wrestling. The basketball team played in Covelli on Sunday because the ice hockey team had a game over at Value City Arena.
