COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Jared Sullinger set an Ohio State freshman
record with 40 points, leading the second-ranked Buckeyes back from
a nine-point second-half deficit to beat IUPUI 75-64 on Thursday
The 6-foot-9 Columbus native hit 12 of 17 shots from the field
and 16 of 23 free throws - both of which were also records - and
had 13 rebounds as the Buckeyes (7-0) escaped on a night when the
pesky Jaguars (4-6) shot 51 percent from the field and constantly
William Buford added 14 points and Jon Diebler 13 for the
Buckeyes, who looked rusty at times after a nine-day layoff.
Alex Young had 20 points, Leroy Nobles 16 and Donovan Gibbs 12
for the Jaguars.
