Buckeyes fall to Wolverines

Columbus, OH (WOIO) - The Buckeyes had the Michigan Wolverines on the ropes on Tuesday night, and couldn't finish them off, watching a six point second-half lead turn into a ten point loss, 70-60 at Value City Arena.

LaQuinton Ross threw down a game-high 24 points, and Lenzelle Smith Jr. added 13, but it still wasn't enough to offset a double-double by Derrick Walton Jr., who racked up 13 points and 10 rebounds.

The Buckeyes are 19-6 overall, 6-6 in the Big Ten.
