NCAA Basketball

Manning and Colts win Super Bowl

by Andrew Poloni

The Michigan Wolverines and Ohio State Buckeyes took their rivalry to the hardwood Tuesday night in Columbus. Ohio State beat Michigan 76-63 and improved their record to 22-3 and 9-1 in the Big Ten.

Michigan hung tough early going into halftime trailing the Buckeyes by only four points. In the second half, though, it was all Ohio State with the Buckeyes proving why they are ranked number three in the nation.

Points were hard to come by for both teams at the start of the game. The first points were scored by Ohio State freshman center Greg Oden almost three full minutes into the first half.

Ohio State point guard Mike Conley Jr. scored a game high 23 points and had six assists and broke Ohio State’s record for freshman scoring that was previous held by Michael Redd who is now a Milwaukee Buck.

Wolverine center Courtney Simms led Michigan with 17 points and eight rebounds.

Oden contributed a strong defensive effort for the Buckeyes even though he spent a number of minutes on the bench in the second half when he got into foul trouble. Oden had five blocks and eight rebounds and chipped in offensively with 15 points.

Senior guard Dion Harris and freshman forward Ekpe Udoh both added 14 points for the Wolverines.

The loss drops Michigan to 16-8 overall and 4-5 in the Big Ten. The Wolverines are going to need a strong finish in the regular season and a decent run in the Big Ten tournament to have a chance at making it into the NCAA tournament in March.

The Wolverines will get another shot at upsetting the Buckeyes when the teams meet in Ann Arbor on March 3 for the final game of the regular season. Michigan will return home to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers this Saturday.
