Luther Muhammad scored 22 points and No. 25 Ohio State beat No. 7 Maryland 79-72, snapping the Terrapins’ nine-game winning streak.  Ohio State (18-9, 8-8 Big Ten) defeated a Top-10 team for the fourth time this season.

“He had big 3s, great confidence,” Holtmann said of Muhammad, who went 4 of 8 from beyond the arc. “They went under a lot of those ball screens at times and he was able to raise up and shoot it behind it, which was huge. I think he’s playing with a lot of confidence.”

Four other Buckeyes scored in double figures, led by Kaleb Wesson with 15 points. Duane Washington Jr. added 13, while Andre Wesson and C.J. Jackson each had 12.

Ohio State played much of the game without forward Kyle Young, who went down at 4:29 off the first half after landing awkwardly on his right foot off a rebound. Young limped off with help, putting no pressure the leg, which has bothered him for weeks.
