Hoosiers wilt in season's first road game (The Indianapolis Star)
"Ohio State's Evan Turner played for the first time in a month, but it was the Indiana basketball team Wednesday night that looked like it hadn't played since early December. The Hoosiers spotted Ohio State a 23-point lead in the first 15 minutes and the Buckeyes went on to an easy 79-54 victory at Value City Arena."

"The Indiana Hoosiers (7-7, 1-1 Big Ten) scored the first basket of the game against Ohio State (11-4, 1-2 Big Ten) at Value City arena. It was on a dunk by Jermiah Rivers to give the Hoosiers a 2-0 lead. It was just two points, but the play rankled OSU Head Coach Thad Matta so much that he took the unusual action of calling a timeout just 47 seconds into the game. "
Crean says Hoosiers lacked toughness in loss (Indiana Daily Student)
"IU coach Tom Crean made up for the emotion missing from his team’s performance in his postgame press conference. Veering away from questions about Ohio State and its star guard Evan Turner, Crean was intent to take on what he said was his team’s lack of communication, togetherness and leadership."
Indiana suffers season-worst loss at Ohio State (The News-Sentinel - Fort Wayne IN)
"Reality hurts, humbles, humiliates when you’re too new to the road (first true road game), certainly this Ohio State venue, when turnovers mount (a season-high 24) and Buckeye shots fall (46.2 percent shooting, 42.1 percent on three-pointers) and nothing is sure but this season-worst defeat (previous worst -- 89-71 to Mississippi)."

Simply put, the IU men’s basketball team’s first Big Ten road game couldn’t have gone any worse. Aside from a 14-for-17 effort from the free throw line and a game-high 22 points from sophomore guard Verdell Jones, it’s hard to pinpoint anything else that went right for the Hoosiers.

"We were not tough enough," said Indiana coach Tom Crean, who declined to talk about Turner. "We were not aggressive enough at either end of the court. We played like a team on its first road game."

"Jump shooter Jon Diebler ran upcourt like a man just released from prison, pointing at Ohio State teammate Evan Turner with a look of elation on his face. Turner, the Buckeyes' previously ailing playmaker, was back on the court, and Diebler was shouting about the pass Turner had just thrown him, reliving what it was like to shoot a wide-open 3-pointer again.

Good, Bad and Ugly: Ohio State (Inside the Hall)
"Do you know what we learned tonight? Because I’ll tell you what we learned tonight. This Hoosiers team is trending as such: good performances buttressed by bad ones. Really, really bad ones. Where one could take pride in games like IU’s victory over Michigan, or Pittsburgh or even their work against Kentucky in a loss, they’ve underachieved in Puerto Rico, looked woeful at home in a loss to Loyola (Md.) and looked equally bad against Ohio State in Columbus this evening."
