everytime he touched the ball down low, giving the Buckeyes'
perimeter shooters a clear window to shoot. And shoot they did.Sullinger hit 4 of 5 shots behind the arc in the opening half as
Ohio State opened up a 43-33 lead. They hit 9 of 20 3-pointers.The Buckeyes built the lead to 64-43 midway through the second
half, thanks in part to 3s on consecutive possessions by Stockman,
Harris and Je'Kel Foster early in the half.The Mocs drew as close as 67-54 on Brown's tip-in with 7:43
left, but then Ohio State pulled away again with its outside
shooting. Harris broke the record with Ohio State's 14th 3-pointer
with 6:24 left and then hit another shot from the opposite corner
with 4:10 left to eclipse the mark for 3-pointers attempted.Harris' 5 3-pointers were a career-best while Sullinger tied his
high without shooting one in the second half.The game was played in St. John Arena, Ohio State's home court
from 1956 to 1998.
