No. 4 Ohio State dominated Northern Kentucky on Saturday, picking up the team's fifth win of the season (5-1, 3-0 at home) with the 70-43 performance. LaQuinton Ross had 22 points on the day off of the bench, shooting 8-for-12 from the field and sinking all three of his free throws. He also picked up eight rebounds, which was tied for the team lead with Deshaun Thomas.
Thomas shot 5-for-14, which wasn't stellar, but he did have 14 points on the day, good for second on the team. His eight rebounds helped Ohio State out-rebound the Norse by a margin of 42-38. All in all, Ohio State didn't have a great day shooting, with a 37.7 shooting percentage, but Northern Kentucky fared worse, at 27.1 percent.
