An old-school win for Ohio State duo

first_imgJust like their high school days, when Greg Oden wasn’t on the floor, Mike Conley Jr. took over. Conley Jr. scored a career-high 23 points, and when Oden was around, he created havoc at the defensive end to lead No. 3 Ohio State past Michigan 76-63 on Tuesday night. “Mike can take over a game when he wants to,” said Oden, his teammate at Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis. “I just sat back and watched and did my part. He can do a lot. He’s a great player.” Conley was a constant for the Buckeyes (21-3, 9-1 Big Ten) as Oden battled foul trouble and sat out 8 minutes of the second half. The freshman point guard hit 9 of 12 shots from the field, including two 3-pointers, and made all three of his foul shots. He also had sixassists, one steal and just one turnover in 38 minutes. Oden added 15 points, eight rebounds and six blocked shots. Jamar Butler added 11 points for Ohio State.
