Keita Bates-Diop scored 18 points, including the decisive putback with 2.8 seconds left, to give No. 14 Ohio State a 64-63 upset at No. 3 Purdue, ending the nation’s longest winning streak at 19 games Wednesday night.

The Buckeyes (21-5, 12-1 Big Ten) grabbed a share of the conference lead as Ohio State won for the 11th time in 12 games.

Carsen Edwards finished with a career-high 28 points to lead the Boilermakers (23-3, 12-1), who lost for the first time since Nov. 23. Isaac Haas had 18 points but missed an 8-foot jumper at the buzzer to win it.

Purdue’s school record 14-game winning streak in conference play and 21-game winning streak at home also ended with a surprising finish.

Purdue led 58-51 with 5:29 to go, but Ohio State closed the game on 13-5 run, retaking a 62-60 lead on Wesson’s banked 3-pointer 1:13 to go.

Twenty-four seconds later, Middletown native Vincent Edwards answered with a three-point play that gave Purdue the lead. He finished with 11 points.

But on the Buckeyes’ final possession, they grabbed two offensive rebounds — the second being Bates-Diep’s putback to win it.

BIG PICTURE

Ohio State: The Buckeyes’ come-from-behind victory just turned the Big Ten back into an interesting race. A loss would have left Ohio State two games behind Purdue and down a tiebreaker. Now, the Buckeyes have a share of the lead and own the tiebreaker over Purdue with less than two weeks to go.

Purdue: The hottest team in America just kept finding ways to win — until their shooting touch went awry Wednesday. Make no mistake, Purdue remains one of the nation’s best teams and still could win a second straight conference crown. But losing this one, on the same night No. 1 Villanova also lost, hurts.

UP NEXT

Ohio State: Heads home to face struggling Iowa on Saturday.

Purdue: Will try to keep its perfect road record intact at No. 4 Michigan State on Saturday.

After Fergie’s flop, former Alabama CB Marlon Humphrey ‘convinced’ he can sing national anthem

Published: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 @ 4:03 AM

After Fergie flopped while singing the national anthem on Sunday, former Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey is convinced he can pull it off.

Fergie’s curious effort before the NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles left the internet scratching its collective head. The singer even apologized for her showing after she became the butt of jokes for many throughout the country.

Hey, in showbiz, not all buzz is good buzz. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

On Monday night, Humphrey felt compelled to chime in about the popular topic. The current Baltimore Ravens player used Twitter to suggest that he’s “convinced” he can do the national anthem justice.

He might be right. After Sunday night, the bar is rather low. In case you need a refresher, here’s Fergie’s infamous attempt:

For now, Humphrey should concentrate on sticking to his day job. The Ravens took him 16th overall in the 2017 NFL Draft. He had 34 tackles and 2 interceptions as a rookie last season.

But perhaps Humphrey will have the chance to show off his vocal chords at some point. Never say never, right?

Sorry, Fergie, but you made the whole singing-the-national-anthem thing seem far easier than it should be.

Oklahoma mailbag: Should Mark Andrews have returned to school?

Published: Tuesday, February 20, 2018 @ 4:00 AM

DieHards wants to tackle the best questions from Oklahoma fans. Look for our Oklahoma question of the day Monday through Friday. Join the conversation by sending your questions to @john_shinn, by email to John at jshinn.oudiehards@gmail.com or at the Oklahoma DieHards Facebook page.

The NFL Scouting Combine begins in a week and Oklahoma has six invitees heading to Indianapolis.

Most of the NFL Draft talk surrounding Oklahoma centers on quarterback Baker Mayfield. Offensive tackle Orlando Brown seems like a safe bet to go in the first round. But there hasn’t been much discussion about tight end Mark Andrews lately.

Otis Malone asks, do you think Mark Andrews should’ve stayed for another year?

We won’t have to wait until the 2018 NFL Draft to make the determination. But February is a bit premature. Mayfield is a big topic because he participated in the Senior Bowl.

Andrews, who won the Mackey Award as college football’s top tight end last season, hasn’t done anything for NFL talent evaluators since the Rose Bowl. That will change after the combine and Oklahoma’s pro day on March 14.

There’s going to be a knock against Andrews that won’t go away, and it’s that he rarely played the traditional tight end spot at Oklahoma. I don’t know what the percentage was, but I would guess 85 percent of his snaps were at slot receiver.

Still, he looks the part. Andrews has the size (6-foot-5, 255 pounds). There’s little doubt he’s the best receiver of any tight end (112 career receptions and 22 touchdowns over three seasons) in this draft.

Could he have elevated his stock by staying in school another year? Yes, but only if the Sooners were going use him more as a traditional tight end. There was no guarantee of that happening.

There are some teams that will not draft him early because of the knock on his blocking skills. On the other hand, it’s a passing game these days and Andrews is one of the best receivers in this draft class.
