Ohio State 76, Michigan 66: Was it Really that Bad if You Could Hardly See It?

The Wolverines -- and the broadcast -- looked all out of sorts in Columbus on Tuesday night.

This game was a tough watch, even without ESPN's attempt at an entire broadcast with the "floor seats" camera angle.

Michigan Basketball (19-8, 9-5 B1G) was unable to come up with a win in Columbus on Tuesday evening, losing to the Ohio State Buckeyes (17-10, 9-5 B1G) by a score of 76-66.

Mark Donnal led the Wolverines in scoring with 17 points, while Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton Jr. added 15 and 13 points, respectively. Marc Loving and Jae'Sean Tate had 13 points apiece for the Buckeyes.

Caris LeVert, who returned against Purdue and played 11 minutes, did not suit up for Michigan tonight.

Michigan struggled from beyond the arc again, shooting 5-of-24 (20.8 percent).

Ohio State had its way in the paint all night, scoring 38 of its points down low.

With this loss, Michigan misses an opportunity to really punch its ticket to the NCAA Tournament, and it does not get any easier from here. The Wolverines head to College Park for a rematch with Maryland on Sunday afternoon.
