Craft's 21 lead No. 18 OSU past No. 4 MSU, 68-60

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Aaron Craft slashed through the lane for a career-high 21 points on Sunday - more than he had scored in the last three games combined - to lead No. 18 Ohio State to a 68-60 victory over fourth-ranked Michigan State.

The loss crippled the Spartans' hopes of catching up with top-ranked Indiana, which now leads the Big Ten race by two full games with four remaining.

Deshaun Thomas added 12 of his 14 points in the second half for the Buckeyes (20-7, 10-5), who stand fifth in the conference. Evan Ravenel added 10 points and a crucial block in the final minute.

Freshman Gary Harris had 14 points and Adreian Payne and Derrick Nix each had 12 for the Spartans (22-6, 11-4), who have dropped two in a row after winning 11 of 12.
