Ohio State Vs. Iowa Final Score: Buckeyes Cruise To 76-47 Victory

The Ohio State Buckeyes won their second-straight game following an upset loss to the Indiana Hoosiers by cruising to a victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday. The Buckeyes led by nine points heading in the second half of play, but really started to light things up in the second half, where they out-scored the Hawkeyes by twenty points.

Jared Sullinger was definitely on point, with 28 points, eight rebounds, four steals and a block, nailing 13-of-18 from the field and his sole three-point attempt. William Buford had a bad night for the Buckeyes, shooting just 3-of-14, while Deshaun Thomas went a solid 4-for-6. Eric May led the way for the Hawkeyes with just nine points, six rebounds, two steals and an assist. He was 4-for-10 shooting from the field, a lot better than some folks, like Roy Devyn Marble, who made just one of his eight attempts.

It was a relaxed and dominating game for the Buckeyes, who were never in danger of losing. Next, they've got a game on Tuesday against Illinois, before they have a rematch against the Hoosiers.
