COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Evan Turner of Ohio State (No. 25 ESPN/USA Today, No. 21 AP) says he's about 90 percent back to where he was before breaking two bones in his back in early December.After Turner had 20 points, 13 rebounds and eight assists in Ohio State's 76-56 win over his team on Tuesday night, Northwestern coach Bill Carmody was asked if he thought Turner still was that far from being on top of his game."Next question," Carmody cracked. Then he added, "Yeah. He's doing OK."
• Evan Turner (20 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists) became just the second Buckeyes player (after Jimmy Jackson) to record 1,000 points, 500 rebounds and 300 asssists in his career.
• Ohio State won for the 19th time in its last 20 games against Northwestern.
• John Shurna led the way with 22 points for Northwestern, but the Wildcats couldn't overcome a 40-17 halftime deficit.
