#20/24 OHIO STATE def. MINNESOTA, 85-63
Soon after the school honored its 1960 national championship team, the Ohio State Buckeyes (No. 24 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) showed they could play a little, too.

William Buford scored a career-high 26 points and Evan Turner and Jon Diebler each had 19 to lead the Buckeyes past Minnesota 85-63 Sunday for their fifth win in six games.

"We weren't blind. I'm sure everyone could feel the presence of them," Turner said of the 50th-anniversary team, which was watching from a suite. "It was a big day. It was huge."

#10/12 PURDUE def. PENN STATE, 66-46
Robbie Hummel
needed just three minutes to squash Penn State's upset hopes.

Hummel scored nine of his 23 points during a 13-0 run right after the halftime break to help Purdue (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP) beat Penn State 66-46 Sunday for its fourth straight win.

The Boilermakers led 41-26 after Hummel's shots.

"Rob made some shots there in that stretch, but he also made some good plays," Purdue coach Matt Painter said. "Even when they made some baskets to kind of counterpunch us, he'd step up and make another one or make another play."
