Box Score | Notes
Junior Terence Dials notched his sixth double-double of the season and ninth of his career with an 18-point, 13-rebound effort in Ohio State’s 67-60 loss to Indiana. Senior Tony Stockman scored 14 points and sophomore Ivan Harris added 11.
Bracey Wright led all scorers with 23 points, including 18 in the second half, for the Hoosiers. The Buckeyes trailed 31-23 at the half but rallied to take a 37-35 lead with 15:19 to play in the second half on a 3-pointer by Harris.
Ohio State’s 12-2 run led to a back-and-forth shootout until Indiana took the lead for good at the 12:40 mark when a Wright jumper broke a 44-all tie. Ohio State stayed close and got to within one point at 55-54 at the 4:52 make but the Hoosiers slowly pulled away hitting eight-consecutive foul shots down the stretch.
Dials has led the Buckeyes in scoring 10 times this season and has been the top rebounder in 17 games. He leads Ohio State in both categories with 16.4 points and 8.4 rebounds a game on the season.
He has posted back-to-back double doubles twice this season, which includes a three-game streak earlier this year vs. Mercer, New Hampshire and St. Joseph’s. Dials scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds against Minnesota prior to the IU game.
The Buckeyes have played four of their last six games on the road and two overtime games in the last three contests.
