Penn State Basketball: Nittany Lions dominate Ohio State in season-defining win

Ohio State vs Penn State Penn State vs. Ohio State - 2/15/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Frederick Owens | 18 February, 2018, 06:28

In its biggest home game in years, Penn State jumped out to an early 14-4 lead and dominated No. 8 Ohio State from start to finish en route to blowing the Buckeyes out of the Bryce Jordan Center, 79-56.

The Nittany Lions dominated the Buckeyes for most of the game, leading by as many as 30 points. But with three road games in the last four, there are certainly plenty of potential road blocks along the way. And after the victory, Pat Chambers' team is getting some national recognition. The Nittany Lions don't have a quality non-conference win on their resume, but caught many people by surprise when they upset then-No.

Carr tossed an alley-oop Watkins' way and the forward jammed home the run's second basket to give Penn State the lead for good just 3:20 in.

Bates-Diop and Ohio State will welcome back senior guard Kam Williams, who is expected to play after being suspended for the past three games for violating team rules.

Of course, for Ohio State, this isn't just a game that will get them closer to a Big Ten title, but more importantly it's a chance to continue to improve their seed.

No. 10 Auburn can't overcome slow start at SC
Bryce Brown missed his first eight 3-point attempts and finished 2-of-13 from beyond the arc, scoring 10 points. The afternoon got a lot worse for an Auburn squad already undersized and lacking depth in the front court.


And in case you've lost sight of Penn State recently, let me point out that it has won five of its last six games to start conversations about a fringe NCAA tournament team.

Penn State scored 26 consecutive points with:01 left in the 1st Half, making the game 45-21 in favor of Penn State.

"We really have a hard time guarding him", Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann said. If Williams can come off the bench and provide the ability to spot up and hit some open looks on the outside, it'll create more room for Keita-Bates-Diop on the other side of the floor, as well as Jae'Sean Tate and Kaleb Wesson in the paint. He added five rebounds and three assists in the blowout.

Wesson, similar to Reaves, is a tenacious defender, which the Buckeyes needed against Penn State the first time they met when the Nittany Lions connected on 11 of 14 3-point attempts. I think there are people watching and people notice us and I think they like the way we play and they like the players we have and I think they know we're playing for something. "I think it was important for those guys to learn on the fly and through in-game experience". Ohio State's Kelsey Mitchell is second at 24.6 and Michigan's Katelynn Flaherty is fifth at 23.6.
