Ohio State never trailed in besting the Wolverines (16-1, 3-1), who lost their status as the nation's lone unbeaten team.

Michigan has a chance to grab with lead in the closing seconds but Trey Burke (15 points) saw his potential go-ahead 3-pointer rattle off the rim.

Tim Hardaway Jr. was held to 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting as the Wolverines managed to sink just 38.3 percent of their shots from the field.
