Buckeyes Tame Nittany Lions, 106-74

The Penn State Nittany Lions (7-2) ventured to the Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio to kick off the Big 10 Basketball schedule against the (9-0) Ohio State Buckeyes on a crisp Saturday afternoon.

The Buckeyes blew the game wide open with a 60 point second half to exhibit why they are the sixth-ranked team in the NCAA.

Shooting issues would prove to be fateful for Penn State when they were only able to shoot 11 of 28 on field goals and a woeful 4 of 14 from three-point land.

Kaleb Wesson (11) and Andre Wesson (9) combined to push OSU to a 46-25 halftime advantage.

Things would improve for the Lions who would finish the day shooting 25 of 59 for a paltry 42.4% with the long-range shots not faring much better with a 35.7% on 10 of 28.

Kaleb Wesson led the way, putting up 28 points and snatching 10 rebounds.

Andre Wesson accounted for 15 points to keep the Buckeyes perfect season in place

Free Throws; OSU had a big advantage in rebounds, 44-26.
