After improbable win, Ohio State's rise continues

Minnesota Snaps Purdue's Home Win Streak

Holtmann held off on any talk of winning the league, even though his team is in position to do so during the final month of the season. No. 14 Ohio State completed a regular-season sweep with a 82-64 victory in a game that got out of hand early in the second half. Isaac Haas and Carsen Edwards will be trouble, but the Spartans will match Purdue tit for tat. Joshua Langford hit back-to-back shots early in the second half to keep the deficit from going to double digits. It looked respectable for most of the first half. They saw uncustomary missed free throws and balls that didn't bounce their way. Fran McCaffery isn't necessarily one of them.

McCaffery's Hawkeyes (12-14, 3-10 Big Ten) are just looking to salvage some respect out of what has been a disheartening season. "So it's still a good option". The Spartans game was a 16-point blowout.

Kaleb Wesson added 18 points and C.J Jackson scored 14 for the Buckeyes (21-5, 13-1 Big Ten), who were 9 for 20 from 3-point range. "We are not going to be the best rebounding team in the country, but we can be better than we are now".

Miles Bridges is the team's leading scorer with an average of 17.7 points per game, but the key to the Spartans' success is their depth and versatility.

Inside how Purdue built the nation's longest winning streak. "Tonight, I was able to do that".

Michigan State closes its regular season with three of its last four games on the road, beginning with Tuesday's matchup at Minnesota.

"Nothing really changed (for us)", Martin said. "You wish have some possessions back and you get it corrected and hopefully you're a better player because of it". "We were having a tough time simply catching the ball and concentrating". Give our fans credit. "He comes off a lot of down-screens hard, you've got to be on his footsteps at all times", Winston said. The Boilermakers first loss of the season came to Tennessee, and they followed it up with a loss to Western Kentucky.

The Hawkeyes shot 25 from 59 from the floor (42.4 percent) from the floor Saturday, including just 6 of 20 (30 percent) from behind the three-point arc.

"Oh yeah, Coach would have been mad", he said. "Had he played, they wouldn't have won 17 games; they probably would have won 24 games and it would have been a completely different situation over there". "He stepped up and that was a big basket".

If Bridges can continue making big plays, Michigan State has the potential to beat the best teams in college basketball. Jackson plays the five in about 51 percent of Michigan State's lineups. They fight to protect it, the same as we do.

Ohio State's McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion will be a frequent destination for the Boilermakers over the next six weeks.

Purdue coach Matt Painter put it more succinctly: "You make your breaks".

Purdue has won three of the last four meetings with the Spartans dating back to 2015. "I mean, that was his kind of game". Their response was another reason for Holtmann and his players to start believing a bit more in one another. "I thought we had some out-of-character offensive possessions".

The Buckeyes are now ranked 22nd nationally with a 3-1 record to open the 2018 season, but they are coming off their best season in program history a year ago.
