COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Buckeyes couldn’t hit the nets in Assembly Hall from farther away than a few feet Sunday in dropping a 72-64 decision to an Indiana team that has struggled most of the season, but has proven to be formidable at home.

LaQuinton Ross and Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 19 points each for No. 22 Ohio State (22-8, 9-8) which lost its second straight — both road games against teams in the bottom half of the conference race.

Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell scored 20 points and Will Sheehey added 19 for Indiana. It was the second win over a ranked team in four days for the Hoosiers (17-12, 7-9). And this one came on a day the Hoosiers were without freshman Noah Vonleh, the conference’s leading rebounder, because of an injured foot.

After falling into an early 19-12 deficit, the Hoosiers took control. They closed the half on a 21-5 run to take a 33-25 lead, fended off two second-half charges from Ohio State and sealed it from the free throw line in the final minute.

The Buckeyes scored 48 of their points in the paint and were 0-11 from outside the 3-point line.

While scoring only seven points, Aaron Craft collected three steals, tying Bruce Douglas of Illinois for No. 1 in Big Ten history in career steals with 324.
