Ohio State was looking to close out its 2017-18 regular season with a win against Indiana on the road on Friday night and did so with an 80-78 double overtime victory.
With the win, the Buckeyes are now 24-7 overall going into the Big Ten Tournament. As it currently stands, the team’s 15-3 record in conference play means they are currently in second-place in the standings. The Big Ten Tournament is slated to take place from Feb. 28-March 4.
In the team’s double overtime win over Indiana, Keita Bates-Diop led all scorers with his 24 points and he grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds as well.
After the thrilling victory, first-year coach Chris Holtmann spoke with the media.
Chris Holtmann: “I’ll never forget this regular season. Ever.”

The fun seems to only be getting started.
And, by fun, we mean horrific nightmare for many people around the landscape of college basketball. The sport as a whole is essentially under fire, as major programs within the sport — which involve iconic coaches — are tied to potential NCAA violations.
The latest name to be brought up in regard to NCAA corruption is Michigan State assistant coach Dwayne Stephens.
Stephens was a name mentioned in one of Christian Dawkins’ emails to ASM Sports agency founder and president Andy Miller.
Michigan State associate head coach Dwayne Stephens mentioned here. Stephens has been with the Spartans for 14 years. https://t.co/m6DPzWMX4X

According to Yahoo’s Pat Forde and Pete Thamel, “On the same July day, Dawkins wrote to Miller that he connected with two Big Ten assistants, Dwayne Stephens of Michigan State and Chuck Martin, formerly of Indiana. The email recounts the interactions from Dawkins’ perspective:
“Dwayne Stephens – Trying to close the deal on Brian Bowen for Michigan State. Trying to do a trade deal for (Spartans) Gary Harris, Miles Bridges, etc”
If this email is indeed true, Stephens is going to be in a world of hurt. Michigan State is already being heavily looked into as it is and it appears as though Stephens may have only intensified the eventual disciplinary actions that could involve the Spartans.
