The Tar Heels' Robinson hit a three-pointer of his own but the Buckeyes answered with a 14-4 run over 3:36 to regain the lead at 20-12 with 12:05 left to play in the half. North Carolina shot just 27.4% and played much of the way without freshman big man Armando Bacot, who exited in the first half with a left ankle injury. We won a game and now we get back with probably another top-10 team coming in Notre Dame, who comes off Maui playing really, really well. Four Buckeyes finished with 10 or more points in a balanced attack, and five different players made at least one 3-pointer to help clinch their best win of the season.
The rush attack is spearheaded by Jonathan Taylor, who has more or less carried Wisconsin this season. The Tar Heels have also not been very efficient on offense even when healthy so far this season, averaging just 0.84 points per possession on the season. They lost to now-No. Now they've scored fewer than 80 points in each of their first eight games for the first time since the 1949-50 season. Before these two anomalous results, UNC's biggest home loss was a 29-point beatdown by Duke in 2002.
"It's a great history here", Liddell said.
The Buckeyes lead the FBS in scoring (49.9) and rank fourth within the nation in scoring protection (11.8). The Buckeyes held a 48-32 advantage on the boards, a 25-10 lead in bench points and 30-10 stronghold in points in the paint in the contest. In their 7-0 start, the 6-9 junior has put up 12.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game. "My guess is he'll be out a while".
It should come as no surprise that Ohio State is being backed heavily by bettors in the Big 10 Championship Game. Each of the previous three went on to win the national championship.
North Carolina and Ohio State meet on Wednesday night in one of the headlining games of the 2019 ACC-Big Ten Challenge, a game that will also have major ramifications nationally. Ohio State's biggest win of the season came at a half-hour before midnight ET.
