Ohio State smothers Iowa in dominant win

Ohio State smothers Iowa in dominant win

He came off a dribble-hand off, found himself isolated on the right wing against one of the Big Ten's best defenders in Dakota Mathias and proceeded to bury a 24-footer with 2.7 seconds left to give Sparty a 68-65 win over No. 3 Purdue.

That said, Bridges isn't why Michigan State was able to beat Purdue on Saturday.

Bridges finished with a team-high 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are in first place alone in the Big Ten Conference after an 82-64 win over Iowa.

And you have to wonder if Williams, who's missed the last three games due to a violation of team rules, will be sent to the bench when he returns - possibly on Thursday night at Penn State. Forward Kenny Goins tied the game for MSU at 65 with 46.7 seconds left.

Cassius Winston had 10 points and 10 assists for the Spartans. The bench has averaged right around 14 points per game during Big Ten play, a number boosted by the 27 combined points C.J. Jackson had when he was coming off the bench in the first two conference games against Wisconsin and MI. "But we still have some games left where we know we can still get hot for the Big Ten tournament".

Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann warned his team to avoid a letdown after his team's upset of No. 3 Purdue.

Purdue made 6 of its first 12 from beyond the arc.

Devon Hall had 16 points for Virginia (23-2, 12-1). A 3-pointer the right wing by Bridges with 2.7 seconds left sealed the win.

Michigan State opted to defend Haas one-on-one. That happened four days after they lost at home off of an offensive rebound when they blew a 14-point lead.

The Buckeyes completed a sweep of their season series with the Hawkeyes (12-15, 3-11), after scoring a 92-81 victory at Iowa on January 4. They shot 6-for-19 from three as a team and had their two stars, Carsen Edwards and Vince Edwards, shoot a combined 8-for-26 from the field.

Trae Young and Christian James scored 22 points each to led the Sooners (16-8, 6-6). It allowed 18 points off of the turnovers.

In the game of the night in college basketball, Purdue traveled to Michigan St. hoping to bounce back from Wednesday's loss to Ohio State.

Fellow rookie Cam Lard had 19 points with 17 rebounds for the Cyclones (13-11, 4-8 Big 12). The Huskies, who shot 47 percent from the field, had two starters - forwards David Onuorah and Isaiah Whaley - score zero points. You can tell, they hit big shots, they made big plays, but we came down with a key stop, a key rebound, a key basket. Purdue enters the toughest part of its schedule - against Ohio State, at Michigan State - having not lost since late November.

Heathcote, who died at age 90 in August, led Michigan State to its first national title in 1979 and hand-picked Izzo has his successor.

Kentucky (17-8, 6-6 Southeastern Conference) led 30-26 at halftime, but the Aggies (17-8, 6-6) made 11 of their first 16 shots in the second half - including all four of their 3-point attempts - to take a 14-point lead.

Landry Shamet had 16 points and Conner Frankamp added 14 off the bench to lead the Shockers over the visiting Huskies at Charles Koch Arena. Bowman added 24 points, 12 rebounds and six assists as Boston College (15-10, 5-7 ACC) won for the second time in three tries.

Purdue (23-4, 12-2) didn't hit a single 3-pointer in the second half. He was completely off, missing five shots before that, and was a non-factor for most of the afternoon.
