Ohio State edges Indiana in double OT
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Keita Bates-Diop finished with 24 points and 14 rebounds and C.J. Jackson made a long 3-pointer with 1.7 seconds left in double overtime to give No. 16 Ohio State an 80-78 victory at Indiana on Friday night.
With the win, the Buckeyes (24-7, 15-3) can claim a share of the conference crown in coach Chris Holtmann's first season - if No. 2 Michigan State loses at Wisconsin on Sunday.
Juwan Morgan scored 18 points and Robert Johnson added 17 to lead the Hoosiers (16-14, 9-9). But Johnson, playing what could be his final home game, couldn't make the dramatic half-court heave at the buzzer to win a wild game that was tighter than expected.

Jared Terrell had 17 points to help the Rams (22-5, 15-1) win for the 18th time in 19 games. It was their second straight after their school-record 16-game winning streak was halted by St. Bonaventure last Friday night.
In 1980-81, the Rams tied Duquesne for a share of the conference title, their only other regular-season A-10 championship.
When the game ended, blue and white confetti - the school colors - and streamers fell from the ceiling. Terrell climbed the scorer's table, waving to the crowd.
