IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Evan Turner scored 22 points and dished out nine assists as Ohio State held off Iowa 60-58 Tuesday to snap a three-game road losing streak.
Jon Diebler added 12 points for the Buckeyes (19-9, 9-8 Big Ten), who won their first road game since beating Indiana 93-81 on Jan. 31.
Turner missed a free throw with five seconds left and the Hawkeyes raced down the floor behind 60-58. Iowa's Jermain Davis got a good look at a 3 as time expired, but the ball rimmed out and the Buckeyes survived.
Davis also missed a layup with seven seconds left that would have tied the game.
Devan Bawinkel scored a career-high 24 points on 8-of-13 shooting from 3-point range for Iowa (14-16, 4-13), which lost for the fifth time in six games.
Jake Kelly had 19 points and 11 rebounds for the Hawkeyes.
