And Another Thing

It's Buckeyes

To paraphrase Ron Burgundy in "Anchorman": That got out of hand in a hurry.

Purdue hung with Ohio State as long as it could, but in the end, the Buckeyes' advantage down low was too much to overcome. Purdue exits the Big Ten tournament a few hours after Indiana, falling 88-71 as the Buckeyes broke it open with a 14-0 run in the last six minutes.

The main culprits were Jared Sullinger, who punished the Boilers inside for 30 points and 12 rebounds, and Deshaun Thomas, who finished with 22 and seven.

Purdue pretty much lived on the arc, hitting 12 of 26 threes, and eventually died there. Ohio State's 48-18 advantage in the paint was simply too much for the Boilers to overcome.

So it's on to Selection Sunday for Purdue.
