Purdue Drops a Heartbreaker to Ohio State

Schilling gave everything he had guarding Purdue big man Isaac Haas and Goins frustrated Vince Edwards all night. They can both shoots the light out (Purdue is second in the nation in three-point percentage; Michigan State is seventh).

No. 3 BAYLOR 83, No. 24 TCU 63: In Waco, Texas, Kalani Brown scored 3 points as the Bears (23-1, 13-0 Big 12) won their 20th game in a row. "I wish we would've made some threes in the second half". The Bulldogs had won three straight vs. Villanova, and looked they might continue the streak when they led by as many as 13 in the first half behind Martin's hot hand. We were able to do that for the most part. They saw uncustomary missed free throws and balls that didn't bounce their way. He didn't think much about what would happen if it didn't. They have a lot of people in there. He joked that they were "real close friends". One win and, at worst, Purdue would have remained in a tie for first place. "So it's still a good option". Haas missed on the other end, marking his first miss in more than seven minutes, and after a timeout Bridges hit his shot from near the top of the key.

Bridges connected on a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left and finished with 20 points, helping the fourth-ranked Spartans beat No. 3 Purdue 68-65 on Saturday. That and the belief the Buckeyes can win every game they play; Something they didn't have a year ago. "We came in with the mindset that we had to do our job".

Michael Briggs: When Michigan State welcomes Purdue to the Breslin Center on Saturday, the Spartans will play their first ranked team since November 30, when they hosted then-No. Izzo picked and stuck with it. "We were just so paranoid with the threes. That's what I always say". "In the game, everybody knows what they're going to do and so you don't have to adapt on the fly". Saturday, it was the Big Ten's preseason Player of the Year, Bridges, who delivered a dagger from 25 feet over Mathias' outstretched arm with 2.6 seconds left.

But Villanova closed the half on a 9-2 run, capped by a 3-pointer from freshman Collin Gillespie right before the buzzer, and took its first lead two minutes into the second half when DiVincenzo followed a game-tying 3-pointer with a pair of free throws.

"We've had a really good year", he said. In an extremely high-scoring affair, Iowa fell shy of knocking off the No. 4 Spartans in their last game, losing a 96-93 affair. However, they must first avoid a letdown tonight as they take on a struggling Iowa team. "He stepped up and that was a big basket". Grant Golden added 24 points and six rebounds.

Judging from how the Cavs handled the Irving situation, their front office might not have such a persuasive communicator. Now the two teams are preparing to meet Wednesday with the Cavs' roof collapsing and foundation beginning to crumble.

Yet Michigan State found a way to stay in the game.

"Our game plan was not to give up a lot of threes", Goins said. They fight to protect it, the same as we do. "We need to get it to him deeper than that".

"Hopefully we'll be ready to go", Painter said.

Still, just like the Buckeyes football team when it was derailed by Iowa after an emotional comeback win against Penn State, the basketball Buckeyes might be facing Iowa at the wrong time if they can't put Purdue behind them. Michigan State snagged the rebound and the celebration ensued. That, Izzo admitted, made Saturday's game even bigger. Jae'Sean Tate, who is five inches shorter with comparable strength and athleticism, did most of the work in keeping Cook from getting the ball and every time he did get it, he was quickly double-teamed. "I mean, that was his kind of game".

"Those type of moments, that's the main reason I came back", he said. "He told me, 'Be a senior when you win and a senior when you lose.' Look at what you could have done better and be a leader". 2 Spartans lost to then-No.
