But, in the first round of the National Invitation Tournament on Wednesday night and away from the Purdues and Indianas of the world, the 6-foot-8 Ohio State freshman stepped into the spotlight. Carter scored a career-high 25 points and had 10 rebounds as the Buckeyes rolled to an 86-73 victory over Old Dominion. "The Big Ten is a tougher conference. What's the name of their conference? The Sun Belt? "Carter asked. Old Dominion Coach Tom Young said Ohio State — led by Carter — simply pushed his team around. "They played us more physical than (NCAA teams) Maryland or DePaul did," Young said. "They manhandled us." Ohio State outrebounded the Monarchs 38-25, including a 20-10, upper hand in the second half. "I think it's helped me playing in the Big Ten," said Carter, who came into the game averaging 9.3 points a game. "There wasn't a lot of banging going on like there is in the regular season. It's hard to get any boards in the Big Ten, with all that goes on." Carter was 12 for 18 from the field. Nine of his 10 rebounds came on offense. "I think that who Perry Carter played against the last two months had a lot to do with the way he played tonight. I really think he's improved his offensive play. That's where he's made the most improvement ... He's a much better player than he was in October," Ohio State Coach Gary Williams said. The victory, before a St. John Arena crowd of 10,009, improved Ohio State to 17-12. Old Dominion went on an early 20-8 spurt to take a 24-14 lead with 10:32 left in the first half. Associated Press Perry Carter (R) shoots over Darrin McDonald But Ohio State held the Monarchs scoreless for the next 6:09 and outscored ODU 15-0 to take a 29-24 lead. Jerry Francis scored the first seven points in the streak and Carter the final four. Carter went on to score the last 11 Ohio State points in the half as the Buckeyes took a 36-34 lead. Ohio State then took control of the game by scoring the first 12 points of the second half, with Carter adding four more. The Monarchs never got closer than 11 points again. "We were playing seven guys, and you don't want to play Ohio State, on the road, playing catch-up ball, with seven guys," Young said. "We were in deep trouble from the 18-minute mark on." Old Dominion, which finished third in the Sun Belt, had six turnovers in the first three minutes of the second half. Jay Burson added 18 points for the Buckeyes, with Grady Mateen adding 11 and Curtis Wilson 10. Wilson also had 10 assists. Ohio State hit 37 of 69 shots from the field for 54 percent and had 12 turnovers. Old Dominion placed five players in double figures: Garrick Davis with 17, Steve Trax with 14, Bernard Royster with 12, Anthony Carver with 11 and Frank Smith with 10.
