Follow Noon on Twitter | Rowland | Givler
COLUMBUS, Ohio - After blowing out teams by a margin of more than 20 points at home in Big Ten play the Buckeyes had a knuckle-buster against Purdue on Tuesday night. Purdue's D.J. Byrd did his best to channel his inner-Brandon Paul going for 24 points on 8-12 shooting from beyond the arc. But William Buford found his stroke and helped Ohio State (21-3, 9-2) gut out a win against a Purdue (15-9, 5-6) that refused to go away, 87-84.
