What fatigue? Ohio State beats Michigan with second-half run to advance to title game

0


INDIANAPOLIS – As the higher seed, Michigan got to take the court at Lucas Oil Stadium. A few moments before Saturday’s Big Ten tournament semifinal showdown with Ohio State, the Wolverines charged onto an empty court as their fans rose to their feet.

And from the speakers, “Buckeye Battle Cry” rang out. Someone had hit a wrong button somewhere, and after a few bars the music changed to a prerecorded version of “Hail to the Victors.”

It was a sign of what was to come. Playing their third game in as many days and down a key player, fifth-seeded Ohio State (21-8) advanced to the conference tournament championship game for the first time in eight years with a 68-67 win against No. 1 overall seed Michigan (20-4).
