Delaware hung around, but in the end, the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes were too much. Ohio State stayed unbeaten with a 76-64 win over the Fightin' Blue Hens Wednesday night in Columbus.
The victory was the eighth in a row at home for the Buckeyes, who are now 11-0 on the season with a game against Notre Dame looming this weekend.
Ohio State opened up an 11-point lead by halftime, but the Buckeyes were not able to put much more distance between themselves and Delaware. With every run from Ohio State, Delaware would answer back, thanks in part to a trio of threes from Kyle Anderson.
Devon Saddler scored 17 points to lead the Blue Hens.
Junior LaQuinton Ross led Ohio State once again. Through an inconsistent season, he has scored 18 or more points three times, including 19 points and six rebounds on Wednesday.
But perhaps the biggest advantage came on the glass for the Buckeyes. They dominated the boards, 46-30, led by a double-double from center Amir Williams (11 points, 12 rebounds).
