Unbeaten Buckeyes efficient in blowout
When Jackson State sits down Thursday for Thanksgiving dinner, friends and family should be prepared to wait. If Wednesday night’s game against Ohio State at Value City Arena was any indication, the Tigers will take their time passing much of anything to anyone.
With the visitors holding the basketball on the majority of their first-half possessions, often failing to start their offense until 10 seconds remained on the shot clock, the Buckeyes made them pay by being efficient on offense and keyed in again defensively. Ohio State (5-0) hit 65.2 percent of its first-half shots, led by 17 at the break and easily dispatched Jackson State (1-4), 78-47.
