COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State moved to 2-0 on the season with a 107-61 win over Purdue Fort Wayne Sunday afternoon at Value City Arena.

What They’re Saying – Jon Coffman, Purdue Fort Wayne head coach
On Ohio State’s performance
“Chris (Holtmann) has the Buckeyes playing really good defense right now. You’re going to have a lot of success when you play that kind of defense. I attribute our lack of success in the second half to what Ohio State did today. They’re going to be a really good team.”
