NCAA Basketball: Buckeyes Cruise Past North Florida

Jared Sullinger played like an All-American should play against a foe like the North Florida Ospreys, inflicting his will time and time again to lead the Ohio State Buckeyes to an 85-50 win on Monday night at Value City Arena.

The sophomore preseason All-American poured in 27 points and 12 rebounds and made 9-10 from the line to help Ohio State roll past the overmatched Ospreys, who have already played and lost to three teams ranked in the top 20 this season, following previous losses to Alabama and Florida.

Deshaun Thomas added 16 points and six rebounds as the Buckeyes forced 23 turnovers against the Ospreys, who only totaled six assists on the evening.

Ohio State, ranked third in the country, moves to 4-0 with a third 30+ point victory -- having passed its one true test thus far in beating Florida last week.

The Buckeyes host Duke on Nov. 29 and play at Kansas on Dec. 10, so they will have at least a couple more difficult games before conference games commence.
