Ohio State (10-4, 4-2 Big Ten) suffered its second loss in three outings on Thursday when falling 78-68 at Wisconsin. The Buckeyes fell behind early and had to play catch up throughout the contest, never leading for a single second for the evening. EJ Liddell led with 18 points and six rebounds.
Penn State (8-6, 3-3 Big Ten) dominated Rutgers on Tuesday for a 66-49 victory to pick up its third victory in four games. The Nittany Lions held control for the entirety of the contest and held the Scarlet Knights to just 34% shooting. Sam Sessoms came off the bench and provided 17 points and six assists in the win.

Ohio State is undefeated at home this season but will have to work to keep it that way against a Penn State team that’s gaining some momentum. This is a rematch of the the two team’s conference opener from December 5, a 76-64 Buckeye victory. Considering they’ve already played, this one should be a tighter game and favors the Nittany Lions to cover.
