Sullinger Leads #2 Buckeyes To Win

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Freshman Jared Sullinger 30 points, a

career-high 19 rebounds and showed his range by hitting a 30-foot

bank shot at the first-half buzzer to lead No. 2 Ohio State past

South Carolina 79-57 on Saturday.

William Buford added 12 points and Jon Diebler 11 for the

Buckeyes (10-0), who expected one of their biggest tests of the

young season but dominated throughout.

Sam Muldrow scored 14 points and Malik Cooke 13 for South

Carolina (7-2), whose only losses this season have come against

second-ranked Big Ten teams. The Gamecocks lost 82-73 at then-No. 2

Michigan State on Nov. 16.

Sullinger's previous best in rebounds was 14 against North

Carolina A&T last month.

His 14 defensive rebounds were an Ohio State record.
