Badgers battle back, but falls to No. 18 Ohio State

Trailing 30-15 in the first half, the Buckeyes went on a 17-0 run to take a 32-30 lead into the half. He scored all of 12 of his points in the second half to keep the Illini in the game, but it wasn't enough.

Study the box scores and play-by-plays from every Illini basketball game this season and you'll find about a half-dozen of them that make no sense whatsoever. OSU finishes the regular season with four of six games on the road, starting with the trip to West Lafayette, Ind.

The Buckeyes, however, struck 15 seconds into the second period and goalie Kassidy Sauve (26 saves) made the goal stand up in a 1-0 victory over UW in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series opener.

Then came some missed free throws and what Underwood called "silly fouls" - all mistakes the first-year coach said can't be made trying to win a game.

OSU's bid to win the conference will receive its steepest test yet Wednesday with a visit to No. 3 Purdue, which has not lost a game since November and not lost at all in the Big Ten.

While Illinois has had it struggles with a first-year coach, the same can not be said about Ohio State.

By the time Trent Frazier broke the drought with a 3-pointer in the second half, 11 minutes and 30 seconds had passed between IL points.

Fittingly, it came down to the nation's top wrestler in Ohio State heavyweight Kyle Snyder in the last match of a matchup of the nation's top-two ranked teams.

Now, Illinois (12-11 overall, 2-8 in the Big Ten) will attempt to duplicate the effort, and ultimately, the results when the Fighting Illini take on the 17th-rated Ohio State Buckeyes today at the Value City Arena in Columbus. The Illini didn't continue with the same type of assertiveness on the offensive end that helped them build their double-digit lead.

"This is my 32nd year doing this, and I've done No. 1 vs No. 2 back in the day, and when people ask me where my favorite place to do a meet is, I will tell you: 'Anywhere it's packed, and anywhere it's No. 1 vs 2, '" Big Ten and ESPN wrestling analyst Tim Johnson told the Centre Daily Times.
