Evan Turner
of Ohio State (No. 25 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP) says he's about 90 percent back to where he was before breaking two bones in his back in early December.

After Turner had 20 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in Ohio State's 76-56 win over his team on Tuesday night, Northwestern coach Bill Carmody was asked if he thought Turner still was that far from being on top of his game.

"Next question," Carmody cracked. Then he added, "Yeah. He's doing OK."

Turner also keyed a fast start with five points in a 7-0 run as the Buckeyes (14-5, 4-3 Big Ten) broke out quick and cruised to their third win in a row.

#13/15 PURDUE def. ILLINOIS, 84-78
John Hart had played 33 minutes of basketball for Purdue this season before Tuesday night's game against Illinois.

Hart wasn't even listed in the game's official score book, costing the Boilermakers (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today, No. 13 AP) a technical foul and two points at the free-throw line when he did play. The Illini said they knew nothing about him.

Hart more than made up for the technical and introduced himself to Illinois with 14 points, five of them in an early second-half run that gave the Boilermakers a lead they rode to an 84-78 victory.
