    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Evan Turner scored 16 points and had a career-high 13 rebounds and Ohio State held Samford to the fewest points by an opponent in 69 years in a 59-22 victory on Saturday.

    The Bulldogs (3-2) had only nine field goals. The Buckeyes (3-0) blocked seven shots.

    Dallas Lauderdale had 10 points for the Buckeyes.

    The game was over almost before it began, with the Buckeyes scoring the first seven points while holding Samford scoreless over the opening 7:25. The Bulldogs scored on consecutive possessions -- then didn't score again for 8 1/2 minutes.

    By that time, they trailed 24-4 and had hit 2 of their first 19 shots from the field.

    Still, they remained in their Princeton-style offense while the Buckeyes piled up a 30-6 lead at the half. The Bulldogs hit just 3 of 23 shots from the field, were 0 for 7 behind the arc and never shot a free throw.
