“E’Twaun, he may put his fingers up and tell you he hit a 3-pointer, but he rarely smiles,” Purdue guard Lewis Jackson said. “Once he smiles, he’s in a zone, and you probably won’t stop him that night.” Purdue guard E’Twaun Moore was smiling all day Sunday as he lit up Ohio State for 38 points en route to a 76-63 victory.

How they lost: The Boilermakers took the lead with 3:23 left in the first half and never looked back. The Buckeyes played catchup the entire second half, eventually getting within four points after a Jared Sullinger dunk. But, it was too much Moore for Ohio State as he hit a late 3-pointer to seal the victory for Purdue.
