THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

Game preview

OHIO STATE VS. JACKSONVILLE

9 tonight

• Where: Value City Arena

• TV: ESPNU

• Radio: WBNS-AM (1460),

WBNS-FM (97.1)

• Records: Ohio State 6-0,

Jacksonville 2-5

• Matchup to watch: Jacksonville isn't big but gang-rebounds with players 6 feet 5 to 6-7. The Dolphins are out-boarding opponents by more than seven per game, average 15 offensive rebounds and, because of that, get nearly nine more shots per game than opponents. Ohio State has to rebound collectively, as it did in its win over Notre Dame.

• Notable: Ohio State's 11-game win streak is tied with Clemson's for longest in NCAA Division I. Dallas Lauderdale is third nationally in blocked shots per game (4.7) and Evan Turner eighth in steals (3.2). Jacksonville has lost eight straight games to ranked teams (Ohio State is No. 17) and 36 in a row to teams from the six major conferences dating to a win over Florida in 1994. Ohio State won the only previous meeting, 85-74, on Dec. 19, 1986, in the Gator Bowl Classic in Jacksonville, Fla.

• Next: Iona, noon Saturday, Value City Arena.

Men's basketball: Buckeyes rely on offense, for a change

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

James D. DeCamp Dispatch

Ohio State's David Lighty, making his way around Jacksonville's Tevin Galvin, scored 21.

The defense that is one of the best in NCAA Division I wasn't so hot last night.

Fortunately for the Ohio State men's basketball team, the offense was.

David Lighty tied his career high with 21 points, and his aggressive play ignited an offense that set season highs in points and field-goal percentage in an 81-68 victory over Jacksonville in Value City Arena.

Evan Turner added 17 points and Jon Diebler 14 for the 17th-ranked Buckeyes (7-0), whose 10 three-point baskets also were a season high. Ohio State shot 64.3 percent from the field and 58.8 percent outside the arc.

"In the paper last game you guys said the defense helped us," Turner said. "Well, tonight our offense helped our bad defense.

"I mean, scoring is always nice -- that's what we attempt to do. But at the same time, one of these days we're going to have to put it all together and have a good defensive and offensive game."

The win extended the Buckeyes' winning streak in a Division I-best 12 games. The streak comprises the final five games of last season, when the Buckeyes won the National Invitation Tournament, and the first seven this season.

Lehmon Colbert led Jacksonville (2-6) with 14 points. The Dolphins' 68 points equaled the season high against the Buckeyes, and their 49.1 percent shooting also was a high.

"I was very pleased with our effort and our fight. It was just too little, too late," Jacksonville coach Cliff Warren said. "I was disappointed we didn't get the defensive stops down the stretch to make it an even closer basketball game."

Ohio State led by 19 points with 17 minutes left in the game, but as has been characteristic of the Buckeyes, they could not handle prosperity.

They scored only five points in the next five-plus minutes, missing 3 of 4 free throws in the process, as Jacksonville reduced its deficit to eight points with 12 minutes left.

Ohio State moved the lead back up to 12 with 9:05 left but missed an opportunity to increase it by even more by continuing to miss free throws -- 5 of 9 in a four-minute span.

Jacksonville took advantage, making three three-pointers from the corners in a 9-2 run that closed its deficit to 69-64 with 5:01 left.

But Jon Diebler stemmed the tide with a three-pointer from the left wing at 4:32, and the Buckeyes were able to keep the Dolphins at bay the rest of the way.

The Buckeyes made 17 of 27 free throws for the game.

"We weren't into the game defensively the way we needed to be tonight. That was the bottom line," Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. "We had no tenacity or toughness about us. Fortunately, we came out on top."

Jacksonville came into the game having played the second-toughest nonconference schedule in Division I. The only one to face a tougher one

is Butler, which the Buckeyes edged 54-51 Saturday in Value City Arena.

Before playing Ohio State, Jacksonville lost to five teams in the top 100 of the Rating Percentage Index by an average of six points. The five were Florida State, Georgetown, American, Baylor and Georgia Tech.

"That has been our story playing teams in the Big Ten, the Big 12, the ACC, the Big East," Warren said. "We've gotten down, made good runs, gotten stops."

Diebler made 5 of 10 attempts from the field, including 3 of 7 three-pointers. He is shooting 41.9 percent from outside the arc.

"We knew exactly what play they were going to run for Diebler," Warren said. "We were just late contesting the shot, and he's going to make open shots."

Ohio State continues its six-game December homestand Saturday against Iona in Value City Arena.
