INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Madison Green scored 13 points, Dorka Juhasz had a double-double and sixth-seeded Ohio State held off seventh-seeded Michigan 66-60 to advance to the championship game of the Big Ten Conference tournament.

Aaliyah Patty and Jacy Sheldon, who had a steal and layup in with 5.8 seconds to go, both scored 11 points. Juhasz and Brextin Miller had 10 each with Juhasz grabbing 11 rebounds.
