Buckeyes advance

It wasn’t pretty, but the Buckeyes survived a scare and defeated Davidson, 70-62.

The Buckeyes trailed by four at halftime. Asked to rate Matta’s temper on a scale of 1 to 10, Sullinger laughed while pegging it at 13.

“But he told us what needed to be said,” Sullinger added. “We didn’t come all this way to play the way we did in the first half. We were reacting to them instead of them reacting to us. We just weren’t playing Ohio State basketball.”

They’ll need a better effort to beat Georgetown on Sunday.
