Chris Holtmann is making sure everyone who doubted Ohio State on the court never lets that happen again.

The Buckeyes pulled off an 80-73 upset win over Texas Tech thanks to a 39-point 2nd half. Holtmann told reporters postgame that haters are simply “part of the business” and that you “gotta love them” every time a win occurs.

Justice Sueing scored a career-best 33 points, 23 of which came in the 2nd half to help Ohio State hold off the No. 21 Red Raiders. The senior forward scored 15 points in a row for the Buckeyes in the last 10 minutes, helping the B1G program go on a 19-point run to close out the game.

Sueing, a transfer from California, has been Ohio State’s best offensive player this season. He currently is averaging 10.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.2 assist per game through 6 outings.

Winners of back-to-back games, the Buckeyes will face Duke Nov. 30 as part of the ACC/B1G Challenge. Tip-off is set for 7:15 p.m. ET. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.
