Gotta give props to the Big Ten refs because once again they were on top of their game and the game went as it was suppose to, with the better team finding a way to hang on for the win.
Micah Potter/ Mentor, Ohio) came off of the bench to lead the team with 13 points. He also pulled down 3 boards.C.J. Jackson(Charlotte, NC) and Jae'Sean Tate(Pickerington, Ohio) each chipped in with 12 points. Both had 5 boards. The Buckeyes(16-4, 7-0 Big Ten)(11-9, 2-5 Big Ten) connected on 76.5% of their free throws.
For a struggling Northwestern Scottie Lindsey(Hillside,Ill) had 13 points. A big problem for the Wildcats only hit 5-10 free throws.
