Final Score Iona College Gaels 70, Ohio State Buckeyes 95
The team headed over to the Dayton Arena at 5:30 pm.
Iona rented a band for the game. A local high school from the Dayton area. By show of hands most admitted to being Ohio State fans. Not a good sign.
Iona got off to a good start, scoring the first 4 points of the game but was soon down by as much as 16 points a little more than 10 minutes into the 1st half.
The Gaels were tenacious and rallied back to within 4 points with a 1:31 left to go in the first half.
Ohio State pushed up and ended the half up 10, 43-33.
The second half did not get off to a good start with Ohio State opening up a 59-40 lead with 15:33 left.
Ohio State was simply too tall and too tough on defense for the Gaels. There was a series of spectacular dunks, all for Ohio State.
Then things started to get ugly.
The Buckeyes opened up a 30 point lead wit 4:22 to go in the game and appeared poised to hang a triple digit score on Iona.
The game ended 95-70.
