From there the Buckeye (18-4, 12-4 Conf) went off on a 15 point run to take control of this one and avoid losing for the third straight time on Penn State's home court. E.J. Liddell scored 17 of his team-leading 23 points in the 2nd half. Duane Washington JR. added 21 points in the win. Myreon Jones (Birmingham, AL) led the home team with 18 points.
