Purdue's perfect Big Ten record is no more. Ohio State upset the No. 3 Boilermakers in West Lafayette, and Twitter erupted.
Freshman Musa Jallow scored his first points since early January, dropping 10 from off the bench and he was feeling it after the win.

Let's hear from the punditry:
The Ohio State revival is real and it's turning out to be spectacular. Chris Holtmann and the Buckeyes shock Purdue in West Lafayette. Mackey Arena is silent.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) February 8, 2018
Pure class from Chris Holtmann post game crediting Thad Matta and the previous Ohio State staff. Only good things happen when you attribute.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) February 8, 2018
If the season ended today, Chris Holtmann would be my National Coach of the Year.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) February 8, 2018
Corn Dogs? And Ohio State's career points leader? Sign us up.
Great Win Buckeyes!!!— Dennis Hopson (@DennisHopson) February 8, 2018
The win was so impressive, it snapped Mark Titus' Twitter hiatus. Chris Holtmann has that kind of power.
I'm happy to announce that the Twitter hiatus is officially over, folks. I just can't keep it in my pants when Chris Holtmann and Keita Bates-Diop are taking dumps in the luxurious Mackey bathrooms. It's good to be back. Shout-out to the 7% of you who are real people.— Mark Titus (@clubtrillion) February 8, 2018
No, really. Chris Holtmann is that good.
In the last two seasons, Chris Holtmann has beaten:— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) February 8, 2018
No. 1 Villanova
No. 2 Villanova
No. 1 Michigan State
No. 3 Purdue
FINAL: No. 14 Ohio State 64, No. 3 Purdue 63 at Mackey Arena. The Buckeyes were picked 11th in the preseason Big Ten poll. Theyre now tied for first in the league. Unreal stuff from Chris Holtmann. He took over in June.— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) February 8, 2018

No. 14 @OhioStateHoops has gone into Mackey and snapped No. 3 Purdue's D-I leading 19-game winning streak!— Big Ten Network (@BigTenNetwork) February 8, 2018
And the B1G's leading scorer, @KBD_33, converted the winning putback to help seal it. The Ohio State Buckeyes are now in first place in the Big Ten: pic.twitter.com/S25JRNhovk
