Ohio State 72, Iowa 63
Deshaun Thomas, who missed part of the second half with a cut above his eye, scored 16 points and No. 14 Ohio State built a big lead and then held on to beat Iowa 72-63 on Tuesday night. Thomas, the Big Ten's leading scorer at 21 points per game, sat out about 3 minutes while an open cut over his right eye was bandaged. The Buckeyes (14-4, 4-2 Big Ten) led by 24 points with under 13 minutes left but watched as Iowa cut the lead to four with 1:30 remaining. Aaron White, an Ohio native playing his first college game in his home state, had 13 points for Iowa (13-6, 2-4). RECAP

Michigan State 49, Wisconsin 47
higan State coach Tom Izzo says some teams make the mistake of trying to speed up Wisconsin. Instead, the 13th-ranked Spartans decided to grind the Badgers down. Keith Appling scored 19 points and Branden Dawson added 18 while grabbing 13 rebounds to lead Michigan State to a 49-47 victory over Wisconsin in a defensive struggle Tuesday night. "They don't turn it over. I don't care who they're playing," said Izzo, whose team finished with 10 turnovers, one more than Wisconsin. "So we said we have to play like them in that respect. We wanted to run, but we wanted to be solid with the ball, and I think we did a good of that." RECAP
