COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Buckeyes outscored Wisconsin by 11 in the second half to pull out a 58-49 win in Columbus.
No. 11 Ohio State was led by 25 points from Deshaun Thomas.
“We did real well down the stretch. We screened and passed the ball really well. Coach told us we needed to be aggressive and start out with a fast tempo and that’s what we did,” he said.
It was the first time this season OSU has won a game after trailing at the half. The Badgers (14-7, 5-3) took a 26-24 lead into the locker room at the break.
“We came out slow in the beginning and that is something we need to stop. We need to play all the way through” sophomore forward LaQuinton Ross said.
OSU (16-4, 6-2) plays at Nebraska on Saturday.
