5 stars from the Syracuse Orangemen at Ohio State Buckeyes basketball game

The ACC power took on the Big Ten juggernaut in a Wednesday night matchup.

The Syracuse Orangemen took on the Ohio State Buckeyes on Wednesday night. In many ways, it was a litmus test for both programs. The Orange managed to toppled OSU 72-62 in Columbus. Players on both sides managed to stand out from the pack in the game.

1

CJ Jackson

The senior guard did everything he could to try and help the Buckeyes to win. He scored 19 points and hauled down four rebounds. His 4-for-14 shooting was likely part of the problem for OSU.

2

Tyus Battle

The Syracuse junior played all 40 minutes on Wednesday night. He made the most of them, as he scored 20 points, had three rebounds and two assists.

3

Elijah Hughes

Like Battle, the Syracuse forward managed to play all 40 minutes. He scored 18 points thanks in large part to the fact that he hit 4-of-9 three-point shots.

4

Kaleb Wesson

Wesson had an ... interesting game on Wednesday. He hit just 1-of-8 shots. For whatever reason, Syracuse put him on the free-throw line often. He hit 11-of-14 free-throws and scored 13 points.

5

Oshae Brissett

One of the youngest starters on the court on Wednesday night, Brissett had himself another good game in what has been a solid season. Brissett scored 14-points and was 2-of-4 from beyond the arc.
