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.

Buckeyes Upset Hoosiers on Indiana Senior Night

In their best performance of the season, Ohio State knocked off the #2 Indiana Hoosiers on their Senior Night in Assembly Hall. A truly amazing effort by the Buckeyes, Indiana were out hustled, out “toughed”, and thoroughly out played by the rowdy Buckeye bunch. On a night that could have very well been decided by the play of Ohio State’s bigs, Aaron Craft and Shannon Scott...

Dual Point Payoff: Craft and Scott Lead The Way, Stun Indiana

Throughout this season, the Ohio State Buckeyes have had their trials and tribulations on the offensive end of the floor. At times, playing both junior point guard Aaron Craft and sophomore point guard Shannon Scott simultaneously — while ideal on the defensive end — has damaged Ohio State’s halfcourt offensive attack due to a lack of outside shooting from those two. Tuesday...

The Minute After: Ohio State

Thoughts on a 67-58 loss to the Buckeyes: There would be no outright Big Ten title awarded on Senior Night, no fitting ending to the group that brought Indiana back to its rightful place on top of the college basketball mountain. No, the Buckeyes would come into this game like the Badgers did all those weeks ago, with confidence, no fear and the belief that they could rip the hearts...
