WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — LaQuinton Ross had 25 points and 12 rebounds, both career bests, and Shannon Scott added a career-high 18 points to lead No. 3 Ohio State to a 78-69 victory Tuesday at Purdue.

The Buckeyes (14-0, 1-0) started the day as one of eight perfect teams in country and finished it by matching the fourth-best start in school history.

A.J. Hammons led Purdue (10-4, 0-1) with 18 points, 16 rebounds, five blocks and four assists in the Boilermakers’ first home loss. Ronnie Jonson added 16 points for Purdue.

Ohio State took a 34-33 halftime lead on a buzzer-beating layup by Lenzelle Smith Jr., then struggled to pull away until the final 12½ minutes.

The Buckeyes broke a 46-46 tie with six straight points. Scott and Ross accounted for all of the points in a decisive 10-2 run.
