No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 10 Ohio State final score: Hoosiers outgun Buckeyes in 81-68 win

Jamie Sabau

The Indiana Hoosiers pulled away from the Ohio State Buckeyes on Sunday to win on the road and recover from a tough loss to Illinois.

Ohio State's Deshaun Thomas led his team with 26 points but didn't get enough help as Victor Oladipo matched his output and Cody Zeller topped the 20-point mark on Sunday, leading the No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers to a 81-68 victory in Columbus.

Oladipo filled out the box score with 26 points, eight rebounds and three assists while Zeller scored 24 points. The duo combined to shoot 16-of-21 from the floor.

The No. 10 Buckeyes held steady and trailed by only four with two minutes left in the first half, but the Hoosiers led 41-33 at the half. Indiana slowly increased the lead and took a 62-46 lead on a Christian Watford three-pointer with less than 10 minutes to play in the game.

Watford added 20 points and went 4-of-5 from three-point range to help the Hoosiers. And a relatively clean game with just 20 combined turnovers was ultimately decided by the shooting percentages. Indiana connected on 7-of-18 three-pointers, and held OSU to three total threes and 42.4 percent shooting for the day. Meanwhile, the Hoosiers shot 53.1 percent from the floor.

Aside from Thomas, Aaron Craft and LaQuinton Ross were the only Buckeyes to score in double digits. Craft scored 16 and Ross had 11.
