COLUMBUS — It wasn’t as easy as it could have been for Ohio State.
After putting on an offensive outburst in the first half and building a lead that reached 20 at points mid-way through the second half, the Buckeyes let Rutgers crawl back into a game that never should have gotten back to a single-digit lead.
But after a tense final few minutes, questionable passing decisions when Rutgers decided to run a full-court press and plenty of free throws to put the game on ice Wednesday night, Ohio State survived with a 72-66 win inside the Schottenstein Center.
