Ohio State stuns MI with second-half rally

Keita Bates-Diop scored 18 and C.J. Jackson added 17 as Ohio State rallied in the second half to beat MI 71-62 on Monday night.

"As good as we were in the first 18 minutes of the first half, we were just equally as bad in the second half", MI coach John Beilein said.

Johnson burst on the scene at Trinity Christian Academy, and he made his presence felt in the defensive backfield to such a degree that he solidified himself as the 38th-ranked player in the country. Somehow we did a lot again in what we did in the North Carolina game and the LSU game. "We couldn't make a basket or couldn't really make a bright play in that time".

"The ball was in the air, there it was - foul, basket is good and they get the two foul shots", Beilein said. "I'm just telling you - and this is my favorite saying - we get what we deserve".

Meyer's success in Florida since his arrival at Ohio State includes Joey Bosa, Nick Bosa, Johnnie Dixon, Trevon Grimes and defensive tackle Taron Vincent, among others. Keita Bates-Diop led the Buckeyes with 18 points and nine rebounds. He finished with three points.

But the shooting spell eventually caught up with MI and it couldn't hold on. Ohio State turned up the defensive pressure and hit 11 free throws in the last 2:15 to pull away and complete the comeback.

Charles Matthews made Michigan's lone field goal over the final seven minutes on a dunk with 16 seconds left before Ohio State sealed the deflating road loss with four free throws in the final 15 seconds. The crowd energy in the second half was exciting, he said. "I'm sure us getting down 20 had something to do with it". Those first four minutes are crucial. "It's a mistake that we shouldn't have made and we made it".

It was a completely different story in the first half for MI.

Moritz Wagner had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Wolverines.

ABOUT MICHIGAN (7-2, 1-0 Big Ten): Freshman guard Jordan Poole came off the bench to drain five 3-pointers en route to a career-high 19 points in the win against Indiana. "They make them both, five points and all of a sudden (20-point lead) goes to 13 (at halftime) just like that". MI led by as many as 20 in the half, but the 7-0 run - capped by a monster dunk by JaeSean Tate - pulled it closer.

MI looks to continue its recent success in Big Ten play when it hits the road to face Ohio State on Monday.

"We knew in the first half if we kept playing like that, we would have gotten run out of the gym", Williams said.
