OSU keeps winning, stays atop the Big Ten

The Ohio State Buckeyes came one step closer to the Big Ten championship today by defeating a very competitive Michigan Wolverine team 64-54. Terence Dials led the Buckeyes with his 5th consecutive double/double scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

This was a very physical contest as the Wolverines stayed within striking distance till the Bucks went on a 10-0 run late in the game. Ohio State’s outside shooting has been inconsistent the last three games, so Coach Matta stressed that defense would lead them to victory.

The last time these two teams matched up, it was offense show as OSU hit 15-25 from 3 point land and the Buckeyes won 94-85. Today, it was the defense as Dials was a force underneath every time the Wolverines took the ball inside. If Ohio State wins their last two conference games, the worst they can do is share the Big Ten title with Iowa.
