COLUMBUS, Ohio -- All year long Ohio State's fans wondered whether Aaron Craft -- one of the nation's top defenders -- ever would make major contributions at the other end of the court.He picked the perfect time finally to break loose.Craft continually slashed through the lane for a career-high 21 points on Sunday -- more than he had scored in the last three games combined -- to lead the 18th-ranked Buckeyes to a 68-60 victory over No. 4 Michigan State."Give Aaron Craft credit. In the second half, he tore us apart," Spartans coach Tom Izzo said. "It was Aaron Craft. He beat us every way you could beat us."
