The ACC power took on the Big Ten juggernaut in a Wednesday night matchup.

NBA

The Syracuse Orangemen took on the Ohio State Buckeyes on Wednesday night. In many ways, it was a litmus test for both programs. The Orange managed to toppled OSU 72-62 in Columbus. Players on both sides managed to stand out from the pack in the game.

1

CJ Jackson

The senior guard did everything he could to try and help the Buckeyes to win. He scored 19 points and hauled down four rebounds. His 4-for-14 shooting was likely part of the problem for OSU.

2

Tyus Battle

The Syracuse junior played all 40 minutes on Wednesday night. He made the most of them, as he scored 20 points, had three rebounds and two assists.

Elijah Hughes

Like Battle, the Syracuse forward managed to play all 40 minutes. He scored 18 points thanks in large part to the fact that he hit 4-of-9 three-point shots.
