Ohio State upsets Michigan State, 80-64, to stun the top-ranked Spartans


Only six days after being named the top team in the country in the AP and coaches polls, the Spartans suffered their second loss of the season, 80-64, at the hands of unranked Ohio State on the road in Columbus.

It was a back-and-forth game, with overlapping penalties and goals that came in batches. Not only did the Buckeyes have the opportunity to put the rest of college basketball on notice, but they even let their own fans realize that the scarlet and gray can be special in Holtmann's first season at the helm while securing their first signature win with their new head leading the way. Earlier in the week, MSU earned a 91-61 win over Maryland, while Ohio State bested Iowa, 92-81. Woodson helped lead MI to the 1997 national championship as he became the first primarily defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy. "I actually thought we played a better game than we did (Friday)". I liked our attitude. We could go in the tank for the next couple of weeks. "That was the attitude of our guys tonight".

(15) MISSOURI 83, (4) SC 74: Sophie Cunningham was too much for SC (13-2, 2-1 SEC) to handle for the second straight year, scoring 27 points to lead the Tigers (14-2, 2-1) at home.

Ohio State won't play another ranked opponent in Big Ten play for the remainder of January, which could pave the way for the Buckeyes to maintain their standing atop the league race.

Ward's teammates agreed they didn't do a good job of getting him the ball.

Those felt like the two most likely outcomes. "I'd say we played 15 of them pretty well, pretty solid in what we wanted to get done".

Sunday's upset win over Michigan State was the first time Ohio State has beaten a No. 1-ranked team since February 25, 2007, when the Buckeyes took down top-ranked Wiscosin, 49-48.

It only got worse for Michigan State after the break.

"Credit to RIT and their push there in the last 5 minutes", NU coach Jason Lammbers said. We'll just have to see at the end of the tunnel what it is.

Best dunk: Isaac Copeland posterized Purdue's Isaac Haas with a powerful one-handed slam late in a loss in West Lafayette on Saturday.

"It feels really good, but I hate to say it as a coach - it's going to sound Belichickian - but we really are going to try to move as quickly as possible onto the next thing", Holtmann said. "We will continue to build upon our past success and we're looking forward to the new challenges of the upcoming season".

Darius Banks scored 16 points for James Madison (4-13, 0-4).

(9) WICHITA STATE 95, SOUTH FLORIDA 57: Shaquille Morris scored 15 points to lead a balanced scoring effort, and host Wichita State (13-2, 3-0 American Athletic) blew out South Florida (7-10, 0-4). Isaiah Reese added 12 with seven assists and Crumpton finished with 11 points, 0-for-5 from 3.

The Black Bears (14-6-3, 8-3-2) completed a weekend sweep of the Eagles and won their third straight overall.

This team will ultimately be defined by its collection of veterans, with help from the young Buckeyes.
