LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) _ Ron Lewis and Mike Conley Junior have put
Ohio State into the N-C-A-A's South Regional semifinals.
Conley scored eleven of his 21 points in overtime as the
top-seeded Buckeyes outlasted Xavier 78-to-71 in Lexington,
Kentucky. Lewis had a game-high 27 points, including the game-tying
three-pointer with two seconds left in regulation.
Lewis capped the Buckeyes' second-half comeback after they
trailed 55-to-44 with seven and a-half minutes left in regulation.
Ohio State pulled out the win despite the loss of Greg Oden, who
fouled out in the closing seconds of the second half.
The 32-and-3 Buckeyes will carry a 19-game winning streak into
the Sweet 16.
Justin Cage had a team-high 25 points for the Musketeers, who
finish the season 25-and-9.
