Ohio State's Evan Ravenel was all over Indiana's Christian Watford on this drive to the basket. But No. 15 Indiana got the best of No. 2 Ohio State Saturday. The Hoosiers (13-1, 1-1 Big Ten) defeated the Buckeyes (13-2, 1-1 Big Ten) in Bloomington 74-70, with Victor Oladipo scoring the go-ahead basket with 36 seconds left. This Indiana team is legit.
