Ohio State 75, GEORGIA TECH 66 – Evan Turner can play. The Buckeye’s star shook off one of the worst shooting nights of his career by coming within an assist and a rebound of his third triple-double of the season.

Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets who have been plagued by turnovers all year, tossed the ball around like it came from Jiffy Lube committing 21 turnovers..

Turner, a leading candidate to add national player of the year to his Big Ten honors, finished with a game-high 24 points.

Jon Diebler added 20 points and David Lighty had 18 for the Buckeyes.

ACC Freshman of the Year Derrick Favors (#14) played just 5 minutes in the first half after picking up two quick fouls.

Beating the Buckeyes was a tall order, but Georgia Tech (23-13) had no chance with Gani Lawal and Favors, their two leading scorers and rebounders, in foul trouble for much of the game. Favors, who finished with 10 points and four rebounds, fouled out in the last minute. Lawal, who had three fouls before halftime, had 11 points.
