March 17, 2013 at 5:57 PM   |   Comments

CHICAGO, March 17 (UPI) -- Deshaun Thomas struck for 17 points Sunday and No. 9 Ohio State got past 23rd-ranked Wisconsin 50-43 to corral its fifth overall Big Ten Tournament victory.

Thomas grabbed seven rebounds while Aaron Craft added nine points and six boards as the Buckeyes (26-7) used a swarming defense to shut down the Badgers' attack.

Ohio State socked away its third Big Ten tourney title in four years with an 11-2 run down the stretch.

With the victory, the Buckeyes were likely to earn a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Wisconsin (23-11), which will earn an at-large NCAA berth, got 10 points from Traevon Jackson in the loss.
