Unbeaten Buckeyes whip Gophers

David Lighty scored 19 points and Jared Sullinger had 18 points and 13 rebounds to help top-ranked Ohio State remain unbeaten with an 82-69 victory over host No. 18 Minnesota on Sunday.

Every starter for the Buckeyes (24-0, 11-0 Big Ten) scored 10 or more points as they stretched the second-longest winning streak in school history. William Buford had 15 points, four assists, four rebounds and two steals for Ohio State.

Blake Hoffarber led Minnesota (16-7, 5-6) with 16 points, while Ralph Sampson III and freshman reserve guard Chip Armelin each had 14 points.

Minnesota made a late rally to come within three points in a loss at Ohio State last month; but without senior leader and steady point guard Al Nolen, the Gophers matched their season high with 19 turnovers.

The Buckeyes went just 10 for 20 from the free throw line and still won by 13. Sullinger was 2 for 8.
