COLUMBUS, Ohio - Velimir Radinovic scored all six of his points as Ohio State ran off the first 11 points and coasted to an 88-41 victory over Santa Clara on Wednesday night.

It was the worst loss ever for the Broncos (1-5), topping a 98-52 loss at Purdue a year ago.

Brian Brown scored 15 points and Boban Savovic had 12 points for Ohio State (6-0), with Sean Connolly adding 11 points. Twelve Buckeyes scored.

Ohio State set a school record with 30 3-point field goal attempts and tied the school mark with 13 3-pointers. Savovic was 4 for 6 behind the arc, scoring all of his points on 3-pointers.

There was little drama left after Ohio State dominated the first 5 minutes.

The Buckeyes led 28-6 on Brandon Fuss-Cheatham's 3-pointer at the 8:05 mark. Ahead 39-17, Ohio State ran off the final eight points of the half and the first nine of the second half to build a 56-17 lead.

Santa Clara went scoreless for the first 4:25, then went without a point for 7 minutes in the middle of the game.

The Buckeyes were 8 of 18 on 3-pointers at the half while Santa Clara was 6 of 23 from the field and missed all four 3-pointers it tried. Ohio State also had a 25-10 advantage on the boards and a 10-0 upper hand in assists.

Not until there was just 4:25 remaining did the Broncos finally hit more field goals overall than Ohio State had made behind the arc. Jason Morrissette's 3-pointer, which cut the Buckeyes' lead to 79-34, made Santa Clara 13 of 48 from the field to Ohio State's 12 of 28 on 3-pointers.

No Bronco hit double figures. Jordan Legge and Morrissette each scored nine points.

Santa Clara shot 29 percent (16 of 56) to Ohio State's 50 percent (34 of 68). The Buckeyes finished with a 50-27 rebounding advantage.

Seven Buckeyes hit at least one 3-pointer.

Ohio State also hit 13 3-point field goals (in 28 attempts) against Oakland in 1998.
