Ross leads No. 24 OSU in scuffle-marred game

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - LaQuinton Ross scored 16 points before being ejected because of a scuffle, leading No. 24 Ohio State to a 76-60 victory over Northwestern on Wednesday night.

The scuffle late in the game delayed play for several minutes while the officials deliberated penalties for the players. Northwestern's Nikola Cerina also was ejected from the game. The teams shot 10 free throws as a result of the shoving match.

The victory was Ohio State's 33rd consecutive win over Northwestern in Columbus, dating to an 83-72 loss on Feb. 24, 1977, at old St. John Arena.

Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. each added 14 points for Ohio State. Sam Thompson, who had not hit double figures in his last eight games, had 11 for the Buckeyes (21-6, 8-6 Big Ten), who have won five of their last six.

Drew Crawford scored 22 points and Tre Demps 14 for the Wildcats (12-15, 5-9), who have lost four in a row.
