No. 17 Buckeyes hold off IL for 20th win

I thought they did a great job. Ohio State has a really, really great team.

"It's been a unusual week knowing, obviously, we're coming into the match without (Jason) Nolf".

One of Penn State's five NCAA champs - 157-pounder Jason Nolf - will miss the dual with a knee injury suffered in a match with Rutgers' John VanBrill on Sunday.

The Buckeyes have just one loss during Big Ten play, which came via a miracle for the Penn State Nittany Lions.

"It (stinks) it's a smaller venue and we won't have the fan support", said Martin. "We prepare for them like they're at the top of the Big Ten".

In any event, I think we can all agree that it's pretty cool seeing tickets to a wrestling match in such high demand, especially like, way higher than basketball even. "We have to be ready for those moments".

The Illini had all the makings of an upset early and the first win over a ranked team in the Brad Underwood era, they led the 17th-ranked Buckeyes by 15 midway through the first half but OSU went on a 20-0 run.

But Penn State took the lead 16-15 with huge victories in three of the last four matches.

Unfortunately for MSU, the Buckeyes made it 3-1 at the 6:49 mark as Dakota Joshua took the puck to the net and snuck it past Lethemon. He amassed 1:40 in riding time for another point and a 6-4 win.

"I don't know what I was thinking. I'm just going to try to clear my mind". It was just a culmination of a lot of ups and downs over the past few years.

"I think it's an experience thing", Bates-Diop said.

Nevills scored the initial takedown, and another in the second, to keep the match close. Snyder took down Nevills six times, but Nevills landed two takedowns of his own, in addition to escaping six times to prevent the major. Carson Kuhn got the start and wrestled in his first bout in a year, after transferring from Boise State last month.

"Really looking forward to it, I've said it before, in my mind I'm No. 1 so every guy I go against is faceless and formless in my mind, so whoever it is I'll go out there the same", said Cassar. "Two of the three periods were what we expected".

Ohio State has won six of the last seven meetings with IL, but the two have yet to meet this season.

Playing in his 100th game for the Buckeyes, Bates-Diop reeled off 11 unanswered points including a pair of dunks, a 3-pointer and a tip-in off an offensive rebound.

Tomasello held onto the big lead through the third period, rolling to a 21-12 major, but a late escape and near-reversal in the final seconds kept the Rec Hall crowd on its feet. OSU's Luke Pletcher followed with a 5-4 win at 133 vs. Corey Keener. No. 6 Nick Lee, 7-6. Like UW, she fell to 26-2-1. 165: No. 1 Vincenzo Joseph, PSU, maj. December. 174: No. 2 Mark Hall, PSU, December. Many expected Sanderson to go with 10th-ranked Shakur Rasheed at 197 but the choice was unranked Cassar, and it was the right call. No. 1 Kollin Moore, 6-3. The Nittany Lion battled Snyder tough but lost a close 15-10 decision.
