Sam Thompson also scored 13, while Aaron Craft added 10 for the Buckeyes (3-0), who ended the Golden Eagles’ 27-game home winning streak, second-longest in the nation.

Ohio State slowly took control with a 12-4 run to open the second half, which included six points from Scott. The 6-foot-1 guard found gaps in Marquette’s interior defense, then extended the lead to 44-28 with 6:31 left on a layup on the break.

Todd Mayo led Marquette (2-1) with 11 points. It was the school’s first loss at the Bradley Center since Vanderbilt beat the Golden Eagles 74-57 on Dec. 29, 2011.
