COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Jim Jackson scored a career-high 29 points and 11th-ranked Ohio State set a team record for points in a 116-67 victory Wednesday night over Delaware State.
The previous school record for points was set in a 112-89 victory over Butler in 1969 and matched in a 112-80 decision against Ohio University in 1972.
Mark Baker added 19 points and 8 assists, Perry Carter had 15 points and 13 rebounds, Treg Lee scored 12 points, Jamaal Brown 11 and Chris Jent 10 for the Buckeyes (2-0).

Scott Reeves matched the 112-point total with a free throw with one minute remaining. Steve Hall set the record with a slam dunk off a long pass from Tom Brandewie with 47 seconds left.
The victory marked the second time this week that the Buckeyes had battered a team from the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. Ohio State defeated Bethune- Cookman 111-72 Sunday night.
Much as they did against Bethune-Cookman, the Buckeyes rolled to a big early lead and never were threatened. Behind five points by Jackson and four more from Baker, Ohio State took a 14-2 lead and built it to 61-37 at the half.
Jackson had 20 points at the intermission.
The 61 points was the fourth-highest total for an Ohio State team in one half. The Buckeyes set the record of 65 in the first half of their victory over Bethune-Cookman.
Ohio State hit 44 of 76 shots from the field for 58 percent while the Hornets were 24 for 72 for 33 percent. The Buckeyes also held a 57-35 advantage in rebounds.
Ohio State guard Alex Davis was out with a hyperextended knee.
