Buckeyes win Big Ten Championship

The Ohio State Buckeyes captured their first outright Big Ten title in 14 years by rolling over Purdue 76-57. The game was close for the first half as Purdue played hard and tried to make it tough on the Buckeyes. The second half was all Ohio State. Terrance Dials led Ohio State with 20 points and was a dominant force under the basket. J.J. Sullinger and Jamar Butler added 16 and 15 points respectively.

The Buckeyes are beginning to get noticed around the country and will have the number one seed entering the Big Ten tournament. The men followed the women who had already won the Big Ten Championship last week. This marks the first time both the men and women from the same university have won outright Big Ten Championships in the same season.

Coach Thad Matta took the microphone after the game and praised the seniors for starting a strong foundation to the basketball program. So, optimistically, we should eliminate Matta from considering the Hoosier post.
