Reserve Jordan Sibert added 15 points and freshman Sam Thompson debuted with four points for the Buckeyes, who open regular season play Friday night at home against Wright State.
Despite losing seniors Jon Diebler, Dallas Lauderdale and David Lighty from the Big Ten championship team that went 34-3 last season, the Buckeyes still have Buford, the lone senior, and sophomore Sullinger, a unanimous pick as an Associated Press preseason All-American.
Brad DuPont and Ryan Burrell had 13 points apiece for Walsh.
