COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann warned his team to avoid a letdown after his team's upset of No. 3 Purdue.
A letdown at this point for the Buckeyes would be as hard to imagine as them owning sole possession of first place of the Big Ten in mid-February.
That's where they are after Keita Bates-Diop had 14 points and eight rebounds in No. 14 Ohio State's 82-64 victory over Iowa on Saturday.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — With Texas Southern leading a second-half comeback, Ohio State had to hold off the surging Tigers who chopped their deficit from 18 points to two. But Ohio State had more than enough to stave off Texas Southern.
Keita Bates-Diop, Jae'Sean Tate and Micah Potter scored 17 points apiece to help Ohio State defeat Texas Southern 82-64 Thursday night.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State fought back furiously from a 10-point deficit in the second half against No. 20 Purdue on Thursday night, but a desperate rally came up just short.
Purdue's Caleb Swanigan hit a free throw with 5 seconds left and the Boilermakers held off a final Ohio State rush to win 76-75 in a physical Big Ten contest.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — When star freshman Lonzo Ball arrived at UCLA, Aaron Holiday lost his starting point guard job.
Holiday showed Saturday he can provide the surging Bruins with a needed boost off the bench.
Holiday and Bryce Alford each scored 20 points and No. 2 UCLA overcame a rough shooting game from Ball to beat Ohio State 86-73 and remain unbeaten.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Marc Loving scored 18 points and Kam Williams added 17 more to lift Ohio State to a 70-62 win over Fairleigh Dickinson on Saturday.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Jae'Sean Tate scored 21 points and pulled down 10 rebounds as Ohio State overcame cold shooting and some ugly play to beat North Carolina Central 69-63 Monday night.
Ohio State (2-0) struggled for much of the game and let the Eagles hang around. The Buckeyes shot just 46.4 percent from the floor and were lucky to get away with the victory over the less-talented Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference team.
"We just didn't come out ready to play today," Tate said.
