Ohio State 69, No. 22 Michigan State 67 

It was only fitting that on his Senior Day, Aaron Craft made the big plays when Ohio State needed it the most. 

Craft hustled for a rebound and forced a Denzel Valentine miss on two of the final three Michigan State possessions to hand the Buckeyes their 10th win in Big Ten play. 

Craft also made one of two free throws with 20 seconds left to help seal the victory for his team. 

The Buckeyes held Michigan State without a basket during the final four minutes of the game to avenge their January 7 overtime loss in East Lansing. 

Craft was one of two Ohio State players in double digits as his 12 were only bested by LaQuinton Ross' team-high 22. 

Adreian Payne scored 23 for a Michigan State team that is now 5-7 in its last 12 games.
