  1. Number 4 Purdue at a huge road win at #12 Ohio State 60 to 57.  This was the ninth straight victory for the charging Boilermakers and their first win at Ohio State's Value City Arena ever. JaJuan Johnson led Purdue with 25 points and E'Twaun Moore added 15 points. The win gets Purdue to within one half game of conference leader Michigan State, Purdue has Illinois up next at home. We will be moving Purdue up to being a number 1 seed in our March Madness 2010 bracket as they have been playing very well down the stretch.
