The Ohio State Buckeyes are one of the hottest teams in college basketball and will look to keep their success rolling when they host the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday, February 13th.

Ohio State (16-4, 10-4 Big Ten) has won five straight games and eight of their last nine to move up to No. 4 in the country. Earlier this week, the Buckeyes got the best of the Maryland Terrapins on the road 73-65. Kyle Young and Duane Washington Jr. each scored 18 points to lead Ohio State. The Buckeyes can be scored on, but their offense ranks No. 4 in adjusted efficiency.

Indiana (11-8, 6-6 Big Ten) won two in a row, beating the Iowa Hawkeyes at home and went on the road to beat the Northwestern Wildcats in double overtime on the road Wednesday night. Senior Al Durham scored a career high 24 points for Indiana in the victory. The Hoosiers come in with the No. 20 ranked team in terms of defensive efficiency, and they will have their hands full with one of the best offenses in the country.
