BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Deshaun Thomas and Aaron Craft scored nine of Ohio State’s points in a decisive 11-2 run, leading the 14th-ranked Buckeyes past No. 2 Indiana 67-58 on Tuesday night.

Thomas finished with 18 points and Craft added 15 as the Buckeyes (22-7, 12-5 Big Ten) won their fourth straight.

Indiana had big plans for Senior Night.

After clinching a share of its first conference title in 11 years with losses by Michigan State and Wisconsin on Sunday, the Hoosiers (25-5, 13-4) were trying to claim their first outright Big Ten championship since 1993. They will have another chance Sunday at No. 7 Michigan.

Cody Zeller scored 17 points and Christian Watford added 12 but the Hoosiers weren’t themselves.

Ohio State retook the lead midway through the second half when Indiana went more than five minutes without a basket, took control with the late run and never allowed the Hoosiers to get closer than six points.

The Hoosiers lost for the second time in three games and for the second time at home this season.

Vander Blue had 22 points and made two game-sealing free throws with 13.9 seconds left for Marquette, which kept pace with Georgetown and Louisville for the regular-season title with one game remaining.
