Buckeyes Hold Off Indiana, Prepare To Cheer On...Michigan?

The unthinkable.

Score: No. 14 Ohio State 67, No. 2 Indiana 58

Star(s): Ohio State:Aaron Craft 15 Pts, 4 Reb, 4 Ast, 4 Stl. Deshaun Thomas 18 Pts, 8 Reb, 1 Blk. Indiana:Cody Zeller 17 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast.

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.

Oh and here's a picture of Evan Ravenel.
