(5) Ohio State vs. (1) Michigan State

Line: Michigan State -7.5

Ohio State made it to the semifinals with a 61-57 win over Wisconsin on Friday. Ohio State shot 50 percent from the floor, and made it to the line nine more times than the Badgers.

Evan Turner led the way for the Buckeyes, with 19 points and four assists. Wisconsin has had issues with late-game execution throughout the season, and did not score a field goal in the last six minutes of this ball game.

Michigan State defeated Minnesota, 64-56, to move to the next round of the Big Ten Tournament. Chris Allen led the scoring charge for the Spartans with 17 points.

Michigan State has now won six straight as they push for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
