Hoosiers beat Ohio State

BLOOMINGTON – Will Sheehey had 19 points and six rebounds, while Yogi Ferrell scored 20 to help Indiana survive an injury to Noah Vonleh and surprise No. 22 Ohio State with a 72-64 victory Sunday afternoon at Assembly Hall.

Vonleh, the Hoosiers' standout freshman center, missed the game with left foot inflammation. Shortly before tipoff, Indiana announced Vonleh's absence in a post to coach Tom Crean's Twitter account. Jeremy Hollowell started in Vonleh's place.

Indiana (17-12, 7-9 Big Ten) won consecutive games for the first time since mid-December. The Hoosiers knocked off No. 20 Iowa at home on Thursday.

They are 14-3 at Assembly Hall, with a 4-1 record there against ranked opponents. Indiana hosts Nebraska on Wednesday before concluding the regular season at Michigan Saturday.

Ohio State (22-8, 9-8) trailed 33-25 at halftime despite leading by eight at one point. The Buckeyes were 0-of-11 on 3-pointers and 14-of-23 at the foul line.

Indiana shot 48 percent from the field and overcame 18 turnovers.
