COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After a tough win Thursday at Northwestern, Thad Matta was hesitant to say that Ohio State might be hitting its stride.
Sunday afternoon, Matta was willing to grant that things are trending in that direction. Freshman D'Angelo Russell scored 22 points and added 10 assists for his second double-double of the season and the Buckeyes (16-5, 5-3 Big Ten) knocked off No. 23 Indiana 82-70 in front of 17,322 fans at Value City Arena for their first winning streak in conference play.
"Let's see what we can do from here," he said. "Today was a step in the right direction."
