Jared Sullinger Drops 40 as OSU beats IUPUI 75-64

Jared Sullinger absolutely dominated the IUPUI Jaguars last night as he scored 40 points on 12-17 shooting. In an emotional game for Sullinger, after attending his uncle's funeral earlier Thursday. Sullinger responded with his career high mark in points, crushing his previous record of 26 against Florida. Despite the amazing game by Sullinger, the Buckeyes were tied at halftime against the 4-6 IUPUI Jaguars. The Jaguars were able to stay in the game with their 51% field goal percentage and knocking down 8 of 17 three pointers. Alex Young had 20 points for IUPUI, but it wasn't enough to take down Sullinger and the Buckeyes.

Sullinger had more than half of the points for Ohio State and corralled 13 rebounds. The Jaguars held a 50-41 lead with under 13 minutes left in the game; however, Sullinger responded by scoring 22 points in a 34-14 run by the Buckeyes to end the game. Most of the game Sullinger was not double teamed because IUPUI tried to focus on defending the three point threats of Ohio State. That gave Sullinger an easy time down low against undersized IUPUI big men. Ohio State is now 7-0, sneaking by the Jaguars.
