Hoosiers vs. Buckeyes Leads the Way
February 10, 2013
College basketball will be hard pressed to duplicate the drama of last night's game in South Bend. It took five overtimes for 25th-ranked Notre Dame to upset No. 11 Louisville 104-101.
Top-ranked Indiana is looking to bounce back from Thursday's 74-72 loss at Illinois with a victory at Ohio State (1 p.m. Eastern). The 10th-ranked Buckeyes are coming off a 76-74 overtime loss at No. 3 Michigan on Tuesday. The Hoosiers are 20-3. They are 8-2 in the Big Ten and can tie Michigan State for the conference lead with a win in Columbus. Ohio State is 7-3 in the league and 17-5 overall.
With all of the upsets this week, Duke could be poised for a return to No. 1. The fourth-ranked Blue Devils are at Boston College today.
Also on the college hardwood, No. 7 Arizona hosts California, ninth-ranked Syracuse is home to St. John's and giant-killer Illinois is at No. 18 Minnesota.
