Ohio State Basketball: 5 Things We Loved About Bucks' Beatdown of UMKC
Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes improved to 4-0 on Friday night, absolutely destroying the Missouri-Kansas City Kangaroos, 91-45.

OSU dominated from whistle-to-whistle, taking a 53-18 lead into halftime and never looking back.

There was plenty to love about the Bucks' performance against UMKC, from their merciless defensive pressure to their through-the-roof offensive efficiency.

The Roos were simply overmatched in every aspect of the game and it was apparent from the opening tip.

Junior forward Deshaun Thomas led all scorers with 21 points, while emerging sophomore guard Shannon Scott posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 assists.

Ohio State will look to ride the momentum from this win into its first road game of the season, which will take place next Wednesday at Cameron Indoor against the No. 5 Duke Blue Devils.

But before we can look ahead to the duel in Durham, let's take a moment to relive the Buckeyes' blowout win.

Read on for five things we loved about the Ohio State victory over the Kangaroos.
