MBB: Wednesday Wrap Up

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
#10/11 MICHIGAN STATE def. #17/20 WISCONSIN,  54-47
Chris Allen was the only player on the court two hours before Michigan State played Wisconsin, solemnly making jumpers from all over the court.

It paid off.

Allen scored 16 points while some key teammates struggled, helping the 10th-ranked Spartans hold off No. 17 Wisconsin for a 54-47 win Wednesday night.

"Being there 2 hours early is just something I do because confidence is everything," Allen said. "When you have it, the game is easy. When you don't, every move is tough."

Michigan State (12-3, 2-0 Big Ten) did not trail, but it could not put the pesky Badgers (12-3, 2-1) away in a closely contested defensive struggle until the final minutes.

Jon Diebler scored 21 points and Evan Turner returned early from an injury to give Ohio State a boost in a 79-54 victory over Indiana on Wednesday night.

Turner played his first game since breaking two bones in his lower back while dunking during the Buckeyes' Dec. 5 victory over Eastern Michigan. The original prognosis was that he would be out eight weeks, but he was back in 4 1/2 weeks. He had eight points, five assists and five rebounds in 19 minutes for the Buckeyes (11-4, 1-2 Big Ten), who had lost their first two Big Ten games on the road without Turner.

William Buford added 16 points for Ohio State.

Verdell Jones III had 22 points and Christian Watford 11 for the Hoosiers (7-7, 1-1), playing their first game on an opposing team's home court this season.
