It was only fitting that a game featuring 18 lead changes and seven ties came down to the final shot.
Or, rather, two shots.
Melo Trimble and Dez Wells each scored 18 points, and No. 19 Maryland edged Indiana 68-66 Wednesday night in College Park, Md.
The Hoosiers had a chance to win in the closing seconds. After Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell missed an open three-pointer, he got his own rebound and missed again as the buzzer sounded.
Only then could Maryland coach Mark Turgeon breathe a huge sigh of relief.
"The first one went up and I said, 'OK, they're trying to win it.' It was probably the most open look he had all night. I was hoping he'd miss it; I'm like every other fan in the building."
The Terrapins (20-5, 8-4 Big Ten) trailed 61-59 before Wells tied it with a shot in the lane. Jake Layman scored inside with 1:02 remaining to put Maryland ahead for good.
Two free throws by Trimble made it 65-61 with 30 seconds to go. After Indiana (17-8, 7-5) closed to 67-66, Wells sank one of two foul shots with 12.5 seconds left.
That set the stage for Ferrell, who finished with 23 points.
"Probably the best shot I took all game," he said of the three-pointer. "Felt like it was going in."
No. 23 Ohio State 75, Penn State 55: Sam Thompson scored 22 points and D'Angelo Russell flirted with his second consecutive triple-double to lead the Buckeyes (19-6, 8-4 Big Ten) over the Nittany Lions (15-10, 3-9) in Columbus, Ohio. Russell, the nation's top freshman scorer, added 17 points, six rebounds and seven assists.
