Keita Bates-Diop scored 18 and C.J. Jackson added 17 to pace Ohio State, which beat Wisconsin by 25 points on Saturday. Somehow we did a lot again in what we did in the North Carolina game and the LSU game. The Times-Union's 2017 Super 24 and defensive player of the year Shaun Wade signed with the Buckeyes in last season's class.

Ohio State (7-3, 2-0 Big Ten) turned on the defense in the second half while sprinting out on a blistering 19-3 run, following a 7-0 burst to end the first half.

In Michigan's first 23 possessions, it made eight layups and six 3-pointers - which is to say that the Wolverines did whatever they wanted. "We just did not play well in the second half".

Aaron Boone knows he has to convince players he can manage
One introductory theme was Boone's role in vaulting the Yankees from their surprising ALCS appearance to "the next level". I think when that happens, you're going to put yourself in position to be successful come October".

Eli Brooks temporarily stopped the bleeding with a corner 3-pointer but it wasn't enough to keep Ohio State at bay as MI missed its next eight shot attempts. He finished with three points.

But the shooting spell eventually caught up with MI and it couldn't hold on.

With the ability to play physical press-man coverage along the boundary or serve as a rangy center fielder who can lay the wood and close on the ball in a split second, Johnson has the skills necessary to change the complexion of the Buckeyes' secondary for the better over the next few years. The crowd energy in the second half was exciting, he said. If we carry these things into the rest of nonconference and into the rest of the regular season Big Ten, I think the sky's the limit for us. Those first four minutes are crucial. On the majority of its first-half touches, MI created a high-quality shot. The Wolverines set the tone from tip-off by spacing out Ohio State and grabbing a 14-6 lead at the 13:56 mark behind five points from Brooks on a layup in transition and a 3-pointer off an offensive rebound, an Abdur-Rahkman 3-pointer and a scooping layup by Simpson. Ohio State actually projects him to cornerback and he can also provide some special teams value immediately in the return game. MI led by as many as 20 in the half, but the 7-0 run - capped by a monster dunk by JaeSean Tate - pulled it closer.

Ohio State: The Buckeyes came on strong and played stout defense to roar back and flatten their rival.

"We knew in the first half, if we would've kept playing like that, we would've gotten ran out of the gym, and you definitely don't want that in front of your home fans", OSU guard Kam Williams said.
