COLUMBUS, Ohio — After a nearly flawless offensive effort in last Thursday’s win over Michigan, Indiana displayed perhaps its ugliest of the year against Ohio State.
The Hoosiers committed 24 turnovers, including 14 in the first half in a 79-54 blowout loss to Ohio State in front of 13,712 at Value City Arena. With about five minutes left in the first half, Indiana had more turnovers (12) than points (8).
When they did manage to get through an offensive possession without turning it over, they weren’t much more successful. They shot 34 percent (18-for-53) from the field and 22.2 percent (4-for-18) from beyond the 3-point arc.
Ohio State junior guard Jon Diebler scored 21 points and sophomore William Buford had 16. Junior guard Evan Turner battled foul trouble in his return from broken vertebra in his back, but still managed eight points, five assists and four rebounds.
We’ll have audio shortly.
