Thomas leads No. 15 Buckeyes past Purdue 74-64

Updated:

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Deshaun Thomas scored 22 points to lead No. 15 Ohio State to a 74-64 victory over Purdue on Tuesday night.

The angry Buckeyes (12-3, 2-1) rebounded from their first Big Ten loss by shooting 56.4% from the field. They took a 10-point halftime lead despite losing point guard Aaron Craft for all but 4:19 of the first half because of early foul trouble, and Buckeyes coach Thad Matta got his 100th Big Ten victory.

Ohio State has won 4 of the last five in this series and 8 of their last 10 overall.

Purdue (7-8, 1-2) has lost two straight to Top 20 teams since upsetting No. 11 Illinois last week. The Boilermakers were led by the Johnson brothers, Terone, who had 18 points, and Ronnie, who had 11 points, six rebounds and seven assists.
