Ohio State grinds out OT win

Jared Sullinger's overtime free throw heroics led the Buckeyes to a narrow 67-61 win.

Top ranked Ohio State made it harder for them then they would have liked Friday, but still came out with a victory over the Northwestern Wildcats in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament by a score of 67-61 in overtime. Jared Sullinger starred, scoring 20 points and pulling down 18 boards. His 10 overtime free throws resulted in the difference in the game. Last year, now-Philadelphia 76er Evan Turner shot a near half-court buzzer-beater against Michigan. John Shurna provided some hope for the Wildcats, who are unlikely to make it to the NCAA Tournament, scoring 23 points. The game was close throughout, with Northwestern’s largest lead was 4, and Ohio State’s largest lead, and ending lead of 6. Sullinger and Ohio State are now very likely to get a #1 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes have a rematch against Michigan Saturday at 1:40 PM Eastern Time on CBS.
