Brice Sensabaugh has played a strong role in Ohio State’s surprise run to the B1G Tournament semifinals. The freshman power forward averages over 16 points a game for the Buckeyes and is responsible for a large chunk of what the Buckeyes do on offense.

But disaster struck Saturday, when it was revealed that Sensabaugh will miss the remainder of the year for the Buckeyes with a knee injury he suffered against Iowa. The Buckeyes were able to beat Michigan State without Sensabaugh, but Purdue is a different animal.

Ohio State has run into a number of injury problems to end the year now. Zed Key was declared out for the year in February, another top player for the Buckeyes. And in the midst of a 3-game winning streak (matching their regular season B1G win total) that’s the last thing the Buckeyes need.

Ohio State looks to keep their magical run alive Saturday at 1 p.m. EST on CBS.
