Indiana's Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall has seen its fair share of nail-biting thrillers since its opening in 1971-72, and Friday night served as the latest addition of classics in Bloomington.
After regulation and one overtime period weren't enough to settle the game between the Hoosiers and No. 16 Ohio State, it took until the last 10 seconds of double-overtime to crown a winner.
Indiana junior forward Juwan Morgan converted a layup to give the Hoosiers a 78-77 lead with just 7.4 seconds remaining in double overtime. However, Buckeyes junior guard C.J. Jackson had the rebuttal. Jackson took the ensuing inbound up the court and launched an NBA-range 3-pointer that hit nothing but net with 1.6 seconds left to give Ohio State the 80-78 win.

Jackson finished with 13 points, three rebounds and two assists for the Buckeyes, while Morgan scored a game-high 18 points for Indiana and also added seven rebounds.
With the win, the Buckeyes' chances at becoming co-Big Ten champs with Michigan State and earning the No. 1 conference tournament seed stay alive.
