Bates-Diop hit a three and Michigan's Simpson fouled Kaleb Wesson, who converted both free throws.

After a blistering first half, MI shot just 37.3 percent from the floor for the game.

Down 13 at halftime, Ohio State outscored MI 41-19 in the second half.

On Tuesday, five-star defensive back Tyreke Johnson (6-foot-1, 191 pounds, Jacksonville, Fla.) announced via video with 247Sports that he had committed to Ohio State. "Coach (Chris Holtmann) was telling us all week that we've either got to get exhausted of losing or we're just going to get lessons taught to us over and over again". "We had really bad fouls to put them in the one-and-one early", Beilein said.

The Buckeyes took advantage and rattled off 10 straight points with two layups from Tate and four straight points by Bates-Diop to grab a 49-46 lead with 11:41 remaining.

MI would take a 60-56 lead before Tate and Williams both scored to level the game at 60 all with 3:34 to play.

Charles Matthews made Michigan's lone field goal over the final seven minutes on a dunk with 16 seconds left before Ohio State sealed the deflating road loss with four free throws in the final 15 seconds. The crowd energy in the second half was exciting, he said.

"We had 20 fouls in the game".

It was a completely different story in the first half for MI. Ohio State actually projects him to cornerback and he can also provide some special teams value immediately in the return game.

"We just got to play better in the second half, specifically, to win and we didn't do that", Robinson said.

The Buckeyes were able to close the first half with momentum swinging their way, ending the half on a 7-0 run to cut the MI lead to 43-30.

MI led 43-30 at the half with six different players hitting a 3-pointer, and Wagner hitting 2 of 3 attempts. "I'm incredibly disappointed, I think everybody on the bus is incredibly disappointed".
