The Buckeyes would survive a last-second shot from Isaac Haas to win 64-63.
Bates-Diop finished with 18 points, 11 boards and three assists in the win. Both the Buckeyes and the Boilermakers are sitting at 12-1 in the Big Ten, a game in front of Michigan State in the Big Ten standings. Purdue plays the Spartans on Saturday, which will be the last game between the three teams. Ohio State beat Michigan State in Columbus earlier this season.
