Ohio State's Sullinger impressive in exhibition against Walsh

COLUMBUS — Jared Sullinger scored 22 points with 10 rebounds in 28 minutes in an impressive freshman debut, helping No. 4 Ohio State defeat NAIA runner-up Walsh 102-56 in an exhibition game Sunday.

Sullinger, a two-time Ohio Mr. Basketball from Columbus Northland, started along with four returnees from a team that was 29-8 last season and won the Big Ten tournament.

The freshman forward missed his first shot 13 seconds into the game but made his second off a short jumper at the 17:53 mark en route to seven first-half points.

Sullinger finished 8-of-14 from the floor and made 6-of-9 free throws.

David Lighty had 19 points and William Buford 16 for the Buckeyes, who open their season Friday against North Carolina A&T.
