Image gallery from win over Northwestern

Ohio State got a key Big Ten win against Northwestern in Value City arena Wednesday night, pulling away late for a 81-71 victory. Truth be known, it might be an underrated result with how tough it is to play against the Wildcats, especially with the Buckeyes missing its two best ball-handlers because of injury.

However, the entire team pulled together, ran an efficient floor game on offense and played solid defense to run the overall record to 10-3, and the Big Ten record to above .500 now at 4-3.

There was plenty of action on the court, and our photographers captured a lot of it in stunning still images. We flipped through our image library and picked out some of the best for your viewing enjoyment.
