Ohio State 71, Nebraska 67
Down by 12 and with LaQuinton Ross in shambles after a technical foul, Ohio State was in a world of hurt.
When the final buzzer sounded, the Buckeyes were victorious and Ross ended up as the leading scorer with 26 points.
Ross powered the comeback for the Buckeyes, who will now face rival Michigan in the semifinals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Saturday. The Buckeyes were down by as much as 18 in the second half.
Amadeo Della Valle also played well in the closing minutes for the No. 5 seed, sinking four free-throw shots in the last 13 seconds.
Nebraska, who saw star Terran Petteway foul out with just under a minute left, did not have an answer for Ohio State in the waning minutes of the game.
