The loss snapped IU’s four-game win streak and moved them into a tie for second place in the Big Ten standings with Maryland.
D’Angelo Russell had 22 points, six rebounds and a career-high 10 assists for the Buckeyes (16-5, 5-3). Yogi Ferrell led the Hoosiers (15-5, 5-2) with 26 points and three assists.
Indiana started out hot, going 8-for-8 from the field before missing its first shot after nearly seven minutes had gone by in the first half. But that hot start would not be sustained for long.
Following its first miss, the Hoosiers committed turnovers on back-to-back possessions. They finished with 15.
Indiana’s Troy Williams, who had a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds in the two teams’ Jan. 10 matchup, was a non-factor as he scored just eight points and collected only two rebounds Sunday.
Collin Hartman continued his impressive play, finishing with 12 points on 4-of-5 shooting from 3-point range. As a team, the Hoosiers shot 52 percent from the field.
The Hoosiers will look to get back on track on the road Wednesday when they travel to West Lafayette, Ind. to face Purdue at 9 p.m.
