Carver-Hawkeye Arena, Iowa City, Iowa
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Iowa has been just about everybody's trap game this season. If not for a pair of stellar second-half efforts from David Lighty and Evan Turner, Ohio State (No. 24 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) might have fallen right in.Lighty scored 20 points, including 18 in the second half, and the Buckeyes rallied past pesky Iowa 65-57 on Wednesday night for its fourth straight Big Ten win.
• Ohio State outscored Iowa 27-12 over the final eight minutes for the win.
• David Lighty scored a game-high 20 points and Evan Turner added a double-double (16 points, 12 rebounds). Turner posted his third consecutive double-double, and Ohio State is 5-2 since Turner returned from injury.
• Eric May led Iowa with 18 points, twice his season average (8.9 PPG), but no other Hawkeye scored in double figures.
• Iowa lost its 15th straight game to a ranked opponent and fell to 2-6 in Big Ten conference play.
