(AP) -- Evan Turner scored six of his 26 points in overtime, leading Ohio State past No. 12 Purdue 80-72 on Tuesday night to end the Boilermakers' six-game winning streak.
William Buford had 22 points and fellow freshman B.J. Mullens added 17 as the Buckeyes (16-5, 6-4 Big Ten) won their third straight while shooting 60 percent from the field.
Purdue (17-5, 6-3), which needed a win to share the Big Ten lead with Mo. 13 Michigan State, had not permitted an opponent to shoot better than 43 percent all season.
JaJuan Johnson scored a career-high 30 points and Keaton grant added 14 for Purdue, which was without third-leading scorer Robbie Hummel, who has a hairline fracture in his back. He was cleared to play but never left the bench.
The Buckeyes pulled away in the overtime with an 8-0 run -- four of the points from Turner.
