Ohio State, which brought the nation's No. 1 men's basketball ranking and a 24-0 record into the University of Wisconsin's Kohl Center in Madison, suffered its first loss of the season, as the Badgers prevailed 71-67. Wisconsin used two big runs, outscoring the Buckeyes 15-0 and 10-0, to gain the victory.

Elsewhere in the Big 10, Michigan beat Indiana, 73-69, but the way in which the Wolverines played down the stretch cannot have been comforting to Wolverine fans. In the same fashion as in Wednesday night's win over Northwestern, Michigan again gave up a major run to nearly blow a huge lead, but still hung on. Today against IU, the Wolverines led 66-44, only to give up a 17-2 spurt.
