The regular season couldn’t have ended much sweeter for Ohio State.

The Buckeyes entered Friday night with a 23-7 record overall and traveled to play Indiana in their final game of the regular season. A potential — depending on Michigan State — share of the Big Ten regular season championship was at stake.

Ohio State had the lead for most of the game, but in the final few minutes of regulation, Indiana took the lead. The Buckeyes would tie it back up and overtime ensued. Then, the overtime period proved to not be enough, leading to a second overtime.

Following an Andrew Dakich turnover with the Buckeyes leading, 77-76, with 16 seconds remaining — Indiana called a timeout. After the timeout, the Hoosiers got a lay-up with seven seconds left to take a 78-77 lead.

Then, this happened:

C.J. Jackson decided to let one fly from behind the arc despite only needing two points for the win, but boy did he deliver.

The Buckeyes are now 15-3 in conference and are in second-place of the Big Ten standings. The Big Ten Tournament is set to take place from Feb. 28-March 4 and the top-four seeds in the tournament will receive a double bye.
