For five minutes, the Campbell Camels kept it close. But five minutes later, the No. 16 Ohio State men’s basketball team held a 20-10 lead after going on an 11-2 run.

The Ohio State men’s basketball game against Sacred Heart was delayed for a matter of minutes because of a lighting conflict, but it didn’t keep the Buckeyes from lighting up the scoreboard once the game tipped off.

November 17, 2014
The last time Ohio State and Marquette faced off on the hardwood, it was “brutal.” At least that’s what OSU coach Thad Matta said Monday of the Buckeyes’ 52-35 win against the Golden Eagles last season.
