COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Air Force Falcons started slowly and never fully recovered as Ohio State defeated them, 74-50, on Tuesday night. Marc Loving recorded 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Buckeyes (4-4).

Ohio State never trailed while picking up its second consecutive win. The Buckeyes had lost four straight before beating VMI 89-62 on Dec 5.

Trevor Lyons led Air Force (6-3) with 13 points. JaQuan Lyle scored 12 points and Jae'Sean Tate added 11 for Ohio State.

Ohio State outscored the Falcons 24-5 over the last 13:19 of the first half, including a scoreless stretch of 6:44 until CJ Siples' put-back with 3.1 seconds left.

To show what kind of first half it was for Air Force, Loving answered with a running 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer, giving the Buckeyes a 37-16 halftime lead.

Air Force scored the first four points of the second half, but the Falcons did not get closer than 17 points the rest of the way.
