DeShaun Thomas and Sam Thompson had 19 points apiece helping No. 10 Ohio State rout Nebraska 71-50 in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals Friday night in Chicago.

The Buckeyes turned a close game into a runaway with an impressive 30-5 spree spanning halftime that included a little bit of everything. LaQuinton Ross connected on three consecutive three-pointers, Aaron Craft made a couple of nifty passes and Thompson had two jams to go along with a three-pointer.

Thomas closed it out with a strong reverse dunk that lifted the Buckeyes to a 54-28 lead with 12:01 left. The junior forward flexed and yelled after the big slam led to a celebration on the Ohio State sideline.

Ross finished with 11 points for the Buckeyes (24-7), who have won six straight games and seven of eight overall.

Brandon Ubel had 16 points and seven rebounds for the Huskers (15-18).
