NCAA Game Summary - Ohio State at Marquette



(Saturday, November 16th)

Final Score: (10) Ohio State 52, (17) Marquette 35

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Tenth-ranked Ohio State snapped No. 17 Marquette's 27-game home winning streak with a 52-35 victory on Saturday.

Marquette lost at home for the first time since Dec. 29, 2011.

These same two teams were supposed to open last season against each other aboard the USS Yorktown in South Carolina, but due to condensation on the ship's deck, the game was canceled.

Sam Thompson and Shannon Scott both had 13 points for the Buckeyes (3-0), who outscored Marquette by a 33-16 margin in the second half. Aaron Craft tallied 10 points and 10 assists.

Todd Mayo scored 11 points and Davante Gardner had 10 for the Golden Eagles (2-1), who shot just 18.9 percent from the field.

"In the 55 losses since I've been here, I've always given credit to our opponent. When we get beat we say we got beat," said Marquette coach Buzz Williams. "All of the coaching cliches like there was a lid on the basket, I don't ever buy into that. I thought Ohio State was great."

The game was tied 19-19 following a back-and-forth first half.

Ohio State started the second half on a 12-4 run. Scott tallied six points during the surge that Lenzelle Smith capped with a layup for a 31-23 margin.

The Buckeyes followed with a 15-2 spurt moments later to essentially seal the victory. Thompson scored nine points during the burst, including a jumper with 5:07 left to make it a 48-28 game.

Game Notes

Ohio State leads the all-time series by a 6-4 margin ... The Golden Eagles had 20 turnovers ... The Buckeyes shot 42.3 percent from the field.
