One and Done Duo, BJ Mullens and William Buford, Shine against NC Asheville

BJ Mullens and William Buford showed why they were top recruits coming out of high school and how they can dominate lesser opponents tonight when Ohio State played NC Asheville in Value City Arena. They only worry for Ohio State fans is the length of time these two dynamic players will stay in college.

Not a Close Game

NC Asheville made a run late in the first half but where not able to get any closer than 5 points. An as has been the pattern with the Buckeyes this season, half time led to a big run after the team came out of the locker-room.  When the second half began Ohio State took over the game and went on a run that would but them up by 26 points.

Freshmen Shine

Freshmen Williams Buford and BJ Mullens had the best games of their young college careers. Mullens finished with 19 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 blocks. There were so many open dunks by Mullens that anyone viewing at home thought maybe they were seeing a replay when Mullens slammed down another two. Buford was able to score 16 points with 7 rebounds looking very smooth with his midrange jumper and floater near the rim.

Other Young Players

Other players got a good amount of playing time with the lead so healthy in the second half. Walter Offutt played 10 minutes scoring three points. Anthony Crater was the biggest recipient of playing time with 21 minutes on the night. He finished with 4 points and 5 assists showing great quickness on the court but needing some additional control at times.
