Hawkeyes Revert to Old Ways in Loss at Ohio State

Purdue Drops a Heartbreaker to Ohio State

Purdue Drops a Heartbreaker to Ohio State

Cook was held to just eight points, his lowest total since January 7, and the Hawkeyes also got just 11 points from Jordan Bohannon. It was the first sold-out game at Value City Arena this year. Cost them pursuit of an historic undefeated conference season after getting two-thirds of the way there.

All eyes in the Big Ten were on West Lafayette Wednesday night. It would be the 11th seed if the tournament started today.

Freshman forward Jack Nunge turned out to be a bright spot for the Hawkeyes.

Jordan Bohannon (11) was the only other Hawkeye to score in double figures. Bad news: MSU is No. 1 in the Big Ten in rebounding margin (+10.4). As both forwards play similar games, Jackson has four inches and 20 more pounds on Vincent. BTN televises the game.

The thing about Purdue is that they don't have one single guy who is in running to be Big Ten Player of the Year.

In Big Ten play, Iowa is No. 4 in offensive efficiency, No. 3 in assists, No. 3 in 3-point field goal percentage, and No. 4 in field goal percentage. Purdue committed a reasonable 12 against Ohio State.

Those defensive woes make an upset seem unlikely Saturday, but Iowa has won two of its last three games at Ohio State.

The Boilers continued to lead as the second half wore on, but Michigan State remained close.

Detroit Lions Officially Announce Matt Patricia As Their New Head Coach
The Lions should benefit from his football experience, but I'm fully convinced that Paul is going to die on the sideline. He certainly couldn't pull the Belichick act if he can't bring the Belichickian winning with it.

Latest line: Ohio State (-13.5).

At halftime against the Iowa Hawkeyes, C.J. Gary Dolphin is the play-by-play broadcaster with Bob Hansen as the color analyst.

Bill's pick: Ohio State 81, Iowa 75.

Painter said that in the moment he figured Ohio State accounted nearly entirely for Purdue's relative struggles - and it should be noted that Purdue did do enough on offense to lead by more than a dozen with 10 minutes left - but saw something different on film. Those visits are to Penn State, which knocked off Ohio State in Columbus last month; No. 20 MI and Indiana. Iowa's slump extended to an 0-5 start and now sit 3-10 in conference play. They had undergone a coaching change in June with long-time coach Thad Matta abruptly departing and Chris Holtmann being brought in from Butler to replace him.

Painter explained that he isn't anxious about the big picture in terms of the conference race; he said that his sole focus is on today's game, and if his team is successful in that, then the rest will take care of itself. It could have serious ramifications on the Big Ten title race. Iowa is right there offensively, but defense has crushed Iowa's chances to climbing into postseason contention. Defensively, Ohio State yields 66.1 points per game against the opposing teams. The Spartans trail both Purdue and Ohio State in Big Ten play. The Buckeye women are also hosting the Big Ten Championships (Feb. 14-17) and NCAA Championships (March 14-17) this season.

"You obviously have got to pay attention to wherever he is", Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said.

"Having a big game after losing, you can't ask for anything better than that", Thompson said. It gets them going.

"We needed the door open", Izzo said. He's making progress to get to that point. "You don't win something like this without playing as a unit".
