WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Buckeyes had a chance to move back into the nation's top spot in the polls with a win at Purdue but it just wasn't in the cards. E'Twaun Moore went off for a career high 38 points while the Buckeyes were dismal from the field including 27 percent in the second half.
But Ohio State still controls its own destiny in the Big Ten race and as long as the team wins out the Buckeyes will hold the No. 1 seed going into the Big Ten Tournament. But that seems like a million miles away at this point with the Buckeyes on the quick turnaround to play Illinois on Tuesday night back at the Value City Arena.
Needless to say there were a lot of long faces if you favor the Buckeyes after the game and we caught up with Jared Sullinger, David Lighty and Jon Diebler to get their immediate reactions after the 76-63 loss at the hands of Purdue.
