OSU wallops Minnesota, 71-45



Published: Wed, February 20, 2013 @ 10:35 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — No. 18 Ohio State played great defense, there’s no question about it.

But much of the blame for Minnesota’s lopsided 71-45 loss to the Buckeyes tonight stemmed from a world of mistakes by the Golden Gophers.

“You get beat bad when you don’t make shots,” coach Tubby Smith said. “It’s a combination of shooting poorly and turning the ball over — that’s a perfect storm for getting beat.”

Deshaun Thomas overcame a slow start to score 19 points and the Buckeyes used a 16-0 second-half run to wallop the offensively challenged Gophers.

“We didn’t play perfect, but we kept pursuing the ball, kept moving,” Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. “A couple times in the first half we made mistakes, but we recovered from them. The thing I was most pleased with was, we just kept playing.”
