11 minute scoring drought dooms Illini in loss to Ohio State

The Irish are coming off consecutive 7-0 wins to open the season over Western Michigan and Eastern Illinois.

With Penn State football coach James Franklin sitting mat side and Harrisburg High star Micah Parsons - the Lions true freshman football signee - intrigued enough to stop by, the Lions won four of the final five bouts to catch Ohio State (12-1, 7-1) at the finish.

Up next - IL is back at the State Farm Center on Thursday for an 8 p.m. contest against the Wisconsin Badgers; Ohio State will travel to West Lafayette, Ind.to face the Purdue Boilermakers on Wednesday.

"Look at their last game and see that they were up 40 on Rutgers to see how good they could be", Holtmann said.

IL led 63-60 with just more than five minutes to go in the game, but Bates-Diop started a 10-0 run by making a 3-pointer, and OSU did not trail again. The OSU size and defense was too much for the Hoosiers to handle as they held IN to just 36.4 percent shooting IN the game while out-rebounding them 39-26. "It was frustrating because it's something that we've got to continue to grow from", Underwood said. "We do everything right". We move the ball, we share it, we're playing together. Then we fall in love with (shooting the 3).

In the midst of talking about the undisclosed team infraction that left fifth-year senior guard Kam Williams indefinitely suspended from the team, Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann took a macro view of that the Buckeyes are doing. After Pletcher wrestled gingerly throughout the third period, Keener earned a stall point with a second to go, but it was too late for him to make a full comeback.

IL forced 10 turnovers in the first half. Wisconsin handled them in the 5-0 loss but the 1-0 overtime loss to Minnesota last week was anybody's game and Notre Dame rebounded nicely on Saturday.

"There are a lot of positives, " Underwood said.

The Fighting Illini, on the other hand, will go as far as the Big Ten Tournament.

In addition to concentrating on Mitchell, UW must also turn its attention to redshirt senior forward Stephanie Mavunga, another player who has surpassed the 1,000-point mark, and who is just 19 blocks short of 300 for her career. IL also beat Rutgers by 31, holding the Knights to just 60 points.

Trent Frazier scored in double figures for the 13th time in 14 games, but he made just five of his 15 shot attempts. The Nittany Lion scored a takedown and four nearfall points in the second to build an 11-4 lead.

"I just wanted to come out and be aggressive", Alstork said.

"If our guys aren't ready, then that's on them and me and us".

No. 1 Penn State did what very few thought was possible Saturday night in front of an electric Rec Hall crowd of 6,699 - beat No. 2 Ohio State without Jason Nolf in the lineup.

IL will return home to face Wisconsin on Thursday.

Last games - The Illini rolled over the Rutgers Scarlet Knights 91-60 on Tuesday; while the Buckeyes defeated the Indiana Hoosiers 71-56 on Tuesday in Columbus.
