Horace Broadnax just hopes his team gains something from a road beating. Arnold Louis came off the bench to score 14 points but there was little production elsewhere as Savannah State came out on the wrong end of an 85-45 drubbing at the hands of No. 7 Ohio State on Wednesday night. ''We did some bad-habit things and if it carries over to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference it's going to be a long season for us,'' Broadnax said.

Thompson more comfortable, confident

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Last season, there were times that wide-eyed and skinny-legged freshman Sam Thompson felt alone at Ohio State. Not because he was homesick. Mostly because no one was guarding him.
