Ross leads No. 4 Ohio State over Northern Kentucky

COLUMBUS, Ohio — LaQuinton Ross scored a career-high 22 points to lead cold-shooting No. 4 Ohio State to a 70-43 victory over Northern Kentucky on Saturday.

Ohio State (5-1) rebounded from a 73-68 loss to No. 2 Duke on Wednesday night in which the Buckeyes led most of the way but faded at the finish. They had another bad shooting game against the Norse (0-5), making only 38 percent of their shots.

Deshaun Thomas added 14 points, and Sam Thompson scored 10 for the Buckeyes, who opened an eight-game homestand.

Jalen Billups had 11 points for Northern Kentucky, in its first year in Division I. The Norse haven't beaten a Division I team in a regular-season game since a 66-64 win over Tennessee State on Jan. 14, 1984.

The lead remained around 20 points throughout the second half.
