Ivey’s Late 3-Pointer Finishes Purdue’s Rally Past No. 15 Ohio St.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — With the clock ticking down to the single digits, the score tied and the ball in his hands, Jaden Ivey had no doubt what would happen next.

Ivey’s step-back 3-pointer from the top of the key with 5 seconds left was true, completing Purdue’s rally for a 67-65 victory over No. 15 Ohio State on Tuesday night.

Ivey finished with 15 points, eight of them in the final 3 1/2 minutes as the Boilermakers rallied from a six-point deficit. Purdue led for less than three minutes overall.

Trevion Williams scored 16 points for the surging Boilermakers (11-5, 6-3 Big Ten), who have won four straight, three of them on the road. Sasha Stefanovic also had 15 points.

Duane Washington Jr. led Ohio State (11-4, 5-4) with 21 points, shooting 6 of 9 from 3-point range. Justin Ahrens added 12 points for the Buckeyes, whose three-game winning streak ended.

After Ivey’s go-ahead 3-pointer, Purdue fouled Washington to prevent the Buckeyes from attempting the tying 3. Washington made the first free throw, missed the second and Aaron Wheeler secured the rebound for the Boilermakers.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Mike Smith made three early 3-pointers as Michigan raced to a 17-3 lead and cruised past Maryland.
