The Huskies trailed 47-17 at the break. Northeastern, despite outscoring the Buckeyes, albeit mainly their bench, 38-33 in the second half, stood no change.

Donnell Gresham Jr., who was the only member of his team to reach double-digit points, scored 16.

Northeastern committed 16 turnovers to Ohio State’s nine in the loss.

The Huskies – losers of two straight – look to get back into the win column on Thursday at 3 p.m. against Utah State (3-2).
