Story: In a game with big implications for the Big Ten title race, Ohio State went into Assembly Hall and hung tough with the Hoosiers from start to finish.
With a win, Cody Zeller and company would have clinched the Big Ten Championship, but Zeller was held in check for much of the first half while a balanced attack kept the Hoosiers on their heels. Sam Thompson got off to a hot start, hitting four of his first five shots while the Buckeye backcourt terrorized Jordan Hulls and Yogi Ferrell.
Shannon Scott provided a spark off the bench, picking up four steals, while Craft and Thomas combined for nine points during an 11-2 run down the stretch to put the game out of reach.
Some Buckeyes will suddenly find themselves cheering for the Maize and Blue.
