On senior day, Michigan gets revenge against Ohio State

ANN ARBOR — When Ohio State’s men’s basketball team took the floor Sunday at Crisler Center, Chris de Burgh’s classic hit “Lady in Red” serenaded the Buckeyes, a playful jab that signaled these uneasy neighbors remain estranged.

For the first time since November and just the second time all season, the No. 8 Buckeyes lost back-to-back games, dropping a 74-62 decision Sunday at No. 22 Michigan. The loss to Michigan came after a no-show Thursday at Penn State, and the Buckeyes went from alone in first place in the Big Ten to a game behind Michigan State with two to play. FULL STORY
