Carlos Hyde ran for 146 yards and No. 4 Ohio State’s defense shut out 20th-ranked Michigan in the second half to grab a bruising 26-21 victory on Saturday, completing an improbable 12-0 season for the Buckeyes. It was a sweet win for the Buckeyes, just 6-7 last season with a loss to their archrivals in a transitional year in which they were facing heavy NCAA penalties.
Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 23 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead No. 4 Michigan to the Preseason NIT title Friday with a 71-57 win over Kansas State at Madison Square Garden in New York.
