BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Trayce Jackson-Davis had 27 points and 12 rebounds, and Indiana used stifling defense down the stretch to pull away for a 67-51 victory over No. 13 Ohio State on Thursday night.

Jackson-Davis made 11 of 17 from the field for the Hoosiers (11-3, 2-2 Big Ten), who went on a 13-0 run while holding Ohio State without a field goal for more than five minutes.

Malaki Branham led the Buckeyes (9-3, 3-1) with 13 points, and E.J. Liddell scored 11.

Ohio State was held to 30.8% shooting and committed 15 turnovers, including five in the last 6:41. The Hoosiers held a 41-33 rebounding edge.

Indiana shot 41% but made only 2 of 15 3-point attempts as it bounced back from a loss at Penn State on Sunday.

Ohio State kept it close for much of the second half, and Meechie Johnson Jr.’s 3-pointer cut Indiana’s lead to 52-48 with 6:41 left. But Ohio State only made one basket the rest of the game.

Xavier Johnson hit a pull-up jumper with 5 seconds left in the first half to give the Hoosiers a 33-30 lead. That was his only basket of the game. Jackson-Davis scored 16 points in the first half.

TIP-INS

Ohio State: Former Indiana player Joey Brunk, who sat out last season with the Hoosiers after back surgery, scored six points, all in the first half.

Indiana: Trey Galloway returned to action for the first time since breaking his left wrist on Nov. 17. He had eight points and two steals.

POLL IMPLICATIONS
