The Buckeyes continue their undefeated streak yet again, this time against the Delaware Fightin Blue Hens as a part of the Gotham Classic.

Entering the game 10-0, the Ohio State Buckeyes have dominated just about every game on their schedule thus far, with not many true tests. Tonight, the Buckeyes will look to continue their streak against Delaware as a part of the Gotham Classic. The Fightin Blue Hens haven't had much success this year, as they sit on their 5-5 record heading to Columbus tonight.

Ohio State has won 46 consecutive home games against non-conference, unranked opponents, and is 2-0 all-time when matching up against Delaware. Buckeye fans will also be looking for another solid performance from Lenzelle Smith Jr., who has been on fire to start the season. Smith Jr. leads the team in points, and has been one of their more consistent threats overall this season, all while helping Aaron Craft and LaQuinton Ross shoulder the load.

Delaware didn't fare nearly as well against North Dakota State (as Ohio State did) on Monday, falling 85-66 in Fargo. The Blue Hens came in averaging 83.0 points, but shot just 39.7 percent and struggled despite the return of Devon Saddler.

Go Bucks!
