Ohio State stunned No. 2 Purdue on Sunday, winning 73-69 one day after the NCAA Tournament selection committee picked the Boilermakers as the early favorite to be the No. 1 overall seed during March Madness. Bruce Thornton scored 22 points and Jamison Battle added 19 points to help Ohio State pull off the upset in interim coach Jake Diebler’s first game at the helm. Chris Holtmann, of course, was fired last week after the beleaguered Buckeyes had lost nine of their last eleven games.
