Ohio State, 67, Northwestern, 61, OT, Postgame Thread

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - MARCH 11: Jared Sullinger #0 of the Ohio State Buckeyes drives inside against Alex Marcotullio #4, Luka Mirkovic #12 and John Shurna #24 of the Northwestern Wildcats during the quarterfinals of the 2011 Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament at Conseco Fieldhouse on March 11, 2011 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Northwestern played Ohio State as hard as they could. For the second time this year, NU took the No. 1 Buckeyes down to the wire, but, well, it... just... came... short.

I really don't have much to say, except that in three years, no athlete has made me like him less than Ohio State's Jared Sullinger, and that Northwestern really deserved this game, but they couldn't get a bucket against Ohio State in the game's last minute or overtime.
