COLUMBUS, Ohio -- No. 3 Ohio State had reeled off double-digit wins in its first 10 games. As Delawares players watched some of the film from those victories, they began to wonder, "What would the Buckeyes do if they were in a tight game?" They found out on Wednesday night, hanging around for most of the game before falling 76-64. "Thats one of the things that we realized, looking at their past games -- that they really hadnt been in a dogfight," said Jarvis Threatt, who had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Blue Hens (5-6). "We just tried to make it a game and we fell a little short." LaQuinton Ross scored 19 points, including eight in a decisive 15-0 run in the middle of the game, for Ohio State (11-0), while Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 14, Aaron Craft 12, Amir Williams added 11 points and 12 rebounds and Amedeo Della Valle finished with 10 points. The Blue Hens led by as many as six points in the opening 4 minutes. They never led after Marvin King-Davis hit a short jumper with 3:31 left in the half to put them up 26-25. Then the Buckeyes ran off the last 12 points of the half to take a 37-26 lead and then Ross opened the second half by hitting a 3-pointer. Still, Delaware didnt fold. The Blue Hens twice cut the lead to eight points, the last time at 68-60 with 1:48 remaining on a second consecutive layup by Saddler right down the heart of the lane. But Smith hit a jumper and two free throws and the game was out of reach. "Our guys stood toe-to-toe for the most part with who Im going to call the best team in the country," Delaware coach Monte Ross said. "Im just going to say that and Im going to keep saying that because we played them. I hope they win every game the rest of the way." Saddler, still rounding into shape after a seven-game disciplinary suspension, had 17 points to lead the Blue Hens, who have lost three straight. It was their second of three games in six days, all in the BlackRock Gotham Classic. Both teams will be playing in the same final round of the "tournament" at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, with the Blue Hens meeting Bryant and Ohio State squaring off against Notre Dame. "We played good but there were some things at our own end that we didnt capitalize on for us to pull out the win," said Davon Usher, who had eight points, seven rebounds, a block and a steal for Delaware. "We felt we had a chance to come in here and win but we just messed up on some things on our part." The Blue Hens hung tough despite being outrebounded 46-30. Ohio States guards -- Craft and Shannon Scott -- are considered among the best defensive tandems in the country. But the Blue Hens gashed them for 28 points in the paint, mostly on one-on-one drives through the middle of the defence. "We knew that Delaware has a heck of basketball team," Buckeyes coach Thad Matta said. "Theyve got guys who can really score it. They hit some difficult shots, but thats what they do and theyre good at it." The Blue Hens fell to 0-8 against Big Ten teams, 0-17 against Top 10 teams and 0-29 against ranked opponents. The only time the Blue Hens played a higher-ranked team was No. 2 Duke last season. But this loss certainly wasnt because they were intimidated. "I told our guys coming in, we couldnt blink," Delawares Ross said. "It was a terrific environment for college basketball that Ohio State, overstating the obvious, is used to playing in. But our guys didnt shrink from the moment or the atmosphere." Mario Chalmers Jersey . - Buffalo Bills running back C.

Despite the cloud of uncertainty that has followed them around from the moment general manager Masai Ujiri was brought in to put his stamp on the franchise, the Raptors have surpassed all pre-season expectations.MINNEAPOLIS - The Cleveland Indians hope struggling Carlos Santana and Nick Swisher continue to hit like they did Tuesday night. Having Danny Salazar pitch like he did wont hurt either. Santana homered among his season high-tying four hits and Salazar won in his first start in more than two months as the Indians beat the Minnesota Twins 8-2. Cleveland won for the fourth time in six games since the All-Star break. Minnesota has lost four of five. Santana, 3 for 18 coming in, hit a no-doubt solo shot to right field in the fifth to put the Indians up 4-1. He also had two doubles and a bunt single to beat a defensive shift to up his average to .214. "When hes going good, it makes us a whole different lineup," said manager Terry Francona. Swisher had his first three-hit game of the year. "It seems like me and him kind of been riding the same boat all year long," said Swisher, who entered the game hitless in his previous 10 at-bats and is now hitting .215. "Both of us popping out at the same time, same game is nice." Closer Cody Allen struck out pinch-hitter Chris Parmelee with a runner on third in a two-run game in the eighth inning before Cleveland scored four times in the ninth to negate a save opportunity when Carlos Carrasco pitched the ninth. Minnesotas Brian Dozier had three hits, including his career-high 19th home run in the seventh inning. Making his first appearance in the majors since May 15, Salazar (2-4) scattered six hits and allowed one earned run in five-plus innings. He walked three and struck out six. After eight starts with the Indians, Salazar was sent to Triple-A Columbus to work on his mechanics and build up arm strength to last deeper into games. He went 3-6 with a 4.02 ERA in 10 starts there, but was 2-1 with a 2.16 ERA in his last four outings while looking more like the right-hander who had a 3.12 ERA in 10 late-season starts for Cleveland last season. "I thought he looked confident. He was a little but more aggressive in his delivery," Francona said. "That was more of the stuff we had come to appreciate last year. If hes going to pitch like that and move forward with it, what a shot in the arm for us." He was erratic as the Twins often worked hiim deep into counts, but Francona said Salazar was able to "reach back for his best stuff" and emerge relatively unscathed as Minnesotas clutch hitting continued to be absent.dddddddddddd Minnesota was 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position and is 4 for 41 since the All-Star break. "I dont think you can point to anything," Dozier said. "To be a good offensive team you need the total package. Thats getting guys on base and driving them in." Twins starter Yohan Pino (1-3) was sent to Triple-A Rochester after his July 10 start largely to remain on somewhat of a routine during the All-Star break. In his lone start with the Red Wings, last Thursday, Pino allowed five runs and walked seven in five innings. Yet, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire didnt express much concern Monday. "He told me he was just working on a few things, so well leave it at that." Pino allowed seven hits and four earned runs in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out five and didnt issue a walk. A double, hit by pitch and single loaded the bases for Cleveland with no outs in the second. Yan Gomes struck out looking before David Murphy hit a 2-run single to right. A sacrifice fly by Mike Aviles made it 3-0. Salazar issued three straight walks to load the bases with one out in the bottom of the inning, before striking out Sam Fuld and Danny Santana. "I was trying to be too quick and I had to settle myself down with my delivery," Salazar said. Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera missed the game with back spasms that forced him out of Mondays game. Hes considered day to day. NOTES: Cleveland optioned right-handed reliever C.C. Lee to Columbus to clear room on its roster for Salazar. ... Cleveland RHP Trevor Bauer (4-4, 3.89 ERA) is scheduled to face Minnesota RHP Anthony Swarzak (1-0, 4.34 ERA), who will take Kyle Gibsons start Wednesday afternoon. Gibson was scratched because of a stiff back. ... Dozier was named the Twins 2014 Heart and Hustle Award winner by the MLB Players Alumni Association. The award honours active players who demonstrate a passion for the game and best embody the values, spirit and tradition of the game. The winner from the 30 team nominees will be announced Nov. 18.
