LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Zed Key scored 19 points and Brice Sensabaugh and Bruce Thornton had 17 apiece for Ohio State, which beat rival Cincinnati State 81-53 on Tuesday in the group losers at the Maui Invitational.

Judge Sueing added 11 for the Buckeyes (4-1), who improved to 9-4 all-time against the Bearcats, including four straight wins. It was the teams’ first meeting since the 2019-20 season opener in Columbus.

Cincinnati had just four assists and didn’t get their first until the second half.

Ohio State had 19 offensive rebounds that led to 27 second-chance points. The Buckeyes outshot the Bearcats 42-29.
