Sunday’s Big Ten afternoon showcase brings us to Columbus, OH, where the No. 16 Ohio State Buckeyes will host the Maryland Terrapins.
Ohio State (13-5, 6-3 Big Ten) is back in action for the first time in a week, having its three-game winning streak snapped in an 81-78 loss to Purdue last Sunday. Trailing by 20 in the second half, the Buckeyes battled back to tie the game late and seem poised for overtime. That was before Purdue’s Jaden Ivey buried a three with 0.6 seconds left to deliver the dagger. Malaki Branham had 20 points and seven rebounds in the loss.
Maryland (11-11, 3-8 Big Ten) came up just short in its efforts to upset Michigan State on Tuesday, falling 65-63. The Terrapins were also victims of late-game heroics for their opponent as Malik Hall made the go-ahead layup for the Spartans with four seconds left. Eric Ayala had 15 points and four rebounds in the loss.
