2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament: Ohio State Blows Out Texas-San Antonio, 75-46

Nobody expected the Ohio State Buckeyes to have a great deal of trouble with the Roadrunners of Texas-San Antonio and. . .well, they didn't.

The Buckeyes went out today and looked exactly the way a number one overall seed should look, as they rolled over Texas-San Antonio on Friday afternoon by a score of 75-46 and leading by as many as 38 points in the second half.

William Buford put in 18 points for the Buckeyes to lead the way, with Jared Sullinger adding 11 before getting a little more rest than he's used to getting.

Devin Gibson led the way for the Roadrunners, leading all scorers with 24 point, meaning that he accounted for more than half of Texas-San Antonio's entire offensive output for the game.

The Buckeyes will now move on to play George Mason University on Sunday. The Patriots defeated the Villanova Wildcats earlier in the day to advance to the Round of 32.
