BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP)—Evan Turner had 29 points and 10 rebounds Saturday as Ohio State beat Indiana 93-81, a school record-tying 11th straight loss for the Hoosiers.

William Buford added 24 points for the Buckeyes (15-5, 5-4), who won for only the sixth time in 35 tries at Assembly Hall and posted their first regular-season sweep of the Hoosiers in a decade. Coach Thad Matta is now 50-25 in Big Ten games, becoming the second fastest in school history to reach 50 conference wins. Former Buckeyes coach Fred Taylor did it in 61 games.

Freshman Matt Roth led the Hoosiers (5-15, 0-8) with 29 points, making nine 3s to tie a single-game school record, but it wasn’t enough to avoid matching the worst losing streak in school history. Indiana’s 11 straight losses is its worst skid since 1943-44.
