COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Evan Turner scored 14 of his 22 points as Ohio State built an 18-point first-half lead, and the Buckeyes hung on to beat Michigan 72-54 on Wednesday night in a chippy showdown between the rivals.

The game was held up for several minutes near the finish after Michigan's Zack Novak elbowed Ohio State's P.J. Hill in the face. The officials separated the players before the skirmish escalated. Novak was called for a flagrant foul and was ejected from the game.

It was the second time in two weeks the Buckeyes (14-5, 4-4 Big Ten) had beaten the Wolverines (14-7, 4-5).

Jeremie Simmons matched his career high with 12 points for Ohio State, which had lost its last two games, both to ranked opponents. B.J. Mullens also had 12 points.

Manny Harris had a triple-double of sorts for Michigan, totaling 22 points, 12 rebounds and 10 turnovers. DeShawn Sims added 13 points.
