Ohio State’s only senior ended Michigan State’s regular season on a sour note. William Buford made a high-arcing jumper from the top of the key with 1 second left, lifting the Buckeyes (No. 11 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP) to a 72-70 win over the fifth-ranked Spartans on Sunday to forge a three-way tie for the Big Ten championship. “I was fortunate to knock down the big shot of the night to give us another Big Ten title,” Buford said. Draymond Green had a chance to put the Spartans ahead in his final home game with 32 seconds left, but missed a long fadeaway from the right wing. Just before the buzzer, Green had a heave that missed the mark.
