No. 14 Buckeyes pull away from No. 2 Indiana

Posted: Updated:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -

Deshaun Thomas and Aaron Craft scored

nine of Ohio State's points in a decisive 11-2 run, leading the

14th-ranked Buckeyes past No. 2 Indiana 67-58 on Tuesday night.

Thomas finished with 18 points and Craft added 15 as the

Buckeyes (22-7, 12-5 Big Ten) won their fourth straight.

Indiana had big plans for Senior Night.

After clinching a share of its conference league title in 11

years with losses by Michigan State and Wisconsin on Sunday, the

Hoosiers (25-5, 13-4) were trying to claim their first outright Big

Ten crown since 1993. They will have another chance Sunday at No. 7

Michigan.

Cody Zeller scored 17 points and Christian Watford added 12 but

the Hoosiers weren't themselves.

Ohio State retook the lead midway through the second half when

Indiana went more than 5 minutes without a basket, took control

with the late run and never allowed the Hoosiers to get closer than

six points.
