No. 1 Badgers lose to No. 6 Ohio State

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY

His best game of the year came in the team's win against Grand Canyon, wherein he recorded a double-double with 20 points and 11 boards.

The Spartans (9-17-1, 3-13-1-1) kept the play in the OSU zone for stretches of the second and got rewarded with 8:21 to play in the period as Lambdin made it a 2-1 game.

Ohio State travels to face No. 3 Purdue for their first and only regular-season meeting Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. Notre Dame's 11-point lead seems like an ocean to everyone else, but the Irish know how quickly that can evaporate when games are worth three points.

When Kipper Nichols converted a jumper with 10:11 remaining, the Fighting Illini led 30-15. The Illini didn't continue with the same type of assertiveness on the offensive end that helped them build their double-digit lead. "We do everything right". We quit passing the ball, and we start dribbling it. Then we fall in love with (shooting the 3).

No. 22 Ohio State is 2-1 on on the spring. Did they miss Williams, whose suspension for an unspecified violation of team rules was announced hours before the game?

"Guys get in on him and make small mistakes and he'll scramble out and get two".

IL used its aggressive defense to create offense in the first half of the first half.

They'll go as far as star Keita Bates-Diop is able to take them. The 19 points he scored Sunday was his season-high since transferring from Wright State.

Looking towards Saturday's game, UW must not only defend the dominant OSU trio, but it likely must also rebound the Buckeyes. Senior forward Vincent Edwards ranks with Bates-Diop as a Big Ten Player of the Year candidate. MI is one point behind Wisconsin in the conference standings, and a split seems like the logical pick. Second-ranked Luke Pletcher scored a couple takedowns in the first period and made them stand up in a 5-4 decision. Then, trailing 62-58 with six minutes left in regulation, the Buckeyes closed the game on 17-5 run to seal the victory.

"It was just fun to have everyone cheer", he said after the Nittany Lions' 19-18 win Saturday night. "I never want to take that for granted, so to have a little bit of a hiccup with a guy who's really been a big part of it - he's been an important part of it - I think is frustrating and disappointing".

Despite the poor outings from three of Illinois' top scorers, one bright spot was Alstork.

The dual, touted on social media as the "Super Bowl" of college wrestling, drummed up hype across the country, spiking ticket sales into the hundreds and leading Ohio State's coach Tom Ryan to call for the match to be relocated to the Bryce Jordan Center to accommodate a larger crowd.

IL will return home to face Wisconsin on Thursday.

"We just gotta finish", Underwood said.
