Down goes the No. 1!
The Ohio State Buckeyes are usually known for their football prowess, not so much for basketball. However, they Buckeyes like to stay relevant in NCAAB with some unreal wins, just like this one!
OSU played host to Big Ten rival and No. 1 ranked team Michigan State this fineafternoon, and absolutely DOMINATED the Spartans from whistle to whistle, toppling the top team in the country with an epic home win.
It was all OSU from the very start in this one.
Forward Keita Bates-Diop dropped a game-high 32 points for the Buckeyes, as Ohio State notched four different scorers in double-digit points. To make that even more impressive, they only had THREE POINTS off the bench.

However, those three points came on one of the biggest plays of the game.
The Buckeyes jumped out to an early lead and maintained it throughout the entire first half, stealing momentum even further with unreal plays like this.
That's Andrew Dakich with the buzzer beater, which would count as Ohio State's ONLY bench points of the game.
From there on it was all Buckeyes, as OSU dominated the Spartans for the remainder of the game to seal their win.
