Melo Trimble scored 27 points, and a tip-in by Dez Wells with 1.4 seconds left capped a furious comeback that enabled No. 13 Maryland to squeeze past visiting Northwestern 68-67 Sunday night.
The Terrapins (18-3, 6-2) never led until Trimble made two free throws with 21 seconds remaining to make it 66-65. After Tre Demps hit a jumper for the Wildcats, Trimble missed a three-point try and Wells snared the rebound before scoring with a layup off the glass.
"He was going to get to that ball," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "It was a big-time tip."
Northwestern (10-10, 1-6) called timeout but could not get off a shot before the buzzer.
Maryland trailed by 14 in the first half and 63-52 with 3:46 left.
Trimble went 9-for-10 at the foul line and Wells scored 17 for the Terrapins.
Brian McIntosh scored 21 for the Wildcats, who have lost six in a row — the last three by a total of five points.
Ohio State 82, No. 23 Indiana 70: 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) knocked off the visiting Hoosiers (15-5, 5-2).
The Buckeyes won consecutive games for the first time since nonconference play.
"Let's see what we can do from here," Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. "Today was a step in the right direction."
The Hoosiers hit their first eight shots of the game but committed 15 turnovers as their four-game winning streak ended despite 26 points from junior guard Yogi Ferrell.
