Buckeyes squeak by Badgers with stifling defense down stretch

Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS -- Evan Turner scored 19 points Friday and Ohio State held Wisconsin without a field goal for the final 6 minutes of the Buckeyes' 61-57 victory in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament.

The Badgers led 54-47 with 6 minutes to go but missed their final seven shots, managing only one free throw by Marcus Landry and two by Jason Bohannon during the 14-3 run by the Buckeyes. Turner had six points during that stretch.

Fifth-seeded Ohio State (21-9), which lost to Michigan State in the Big Ten quarterfinals last year, will play the top-seeded and seventh-ranked Spartans in the conference semifinals Saturday. Jeremie Simmons added 10 points for Ohio State. No. 4-seed Wisconsin (19-12) was led by Trevon Hughes with 15 and Bohannon with 13.
