COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Purdue coach Gene Keady isn't making any plans for the NCAA tournament.

"At the rate we're going, we're not headed for the NCAA," Keady said after Tuesday's night's humiliating 72-43 loss to Ohio State. "We're not headed for the NIT. We're headed for practice in the spring."Michael Redd scored 30 points as Ohio State (14-5, 4-2 Big Ten) snapped a two-game losing streak and reversed last year's lopsided loss to the Boilermakers (14-5, 2-3).

It was Keady's worst loss to the Buckeyes in his 18 years at Purdue and Ohio State's most lopsided victory over the Boilermakers since a 92-62 win in 1961.

"I asked them afterward, 'Are you happy now? You did it your way.' This is no Frank Sinatra deal. This is basketball," Keady said. "I sensed some attitudes that they were not buying into the system. . . . We've got a lot of things to work out."

The victory gave Ohio State a rare January sweep over teams from Indiana. The Buckeyes beat Indiana 73-56 on Jan. 9 for their largest victory margin over the Hoosiers in the Bob Knight era.

Redd, mired in a 9-for-28 shooting slump in his previous two games, snapped out of it with a 14-of-21 performance against the Boilermakers.

"Michael was much more patient," Ohio State coach Jim O'Brien said. "He's one of the most difficult guys to guard in the country."

Ohio State, which improved to 10-1 at its new Value City Arena, shot 56 percent from the field while Purdue sank only 32 percent.

Greg McQuay had 12 points and Jaraan Cornell 10 for the Boilermakers, who suffered their worst beating since a 106-65 loss at Indiana seven years ago and had their lowest point total since an 86-43 loss to Illinois in 1985.

"We need some leadership. Some of our guys don't know how tough Division I basketball really is," Keady said. "We're not playing with a lot of heart, and a lot of teams are good in the Big Ten."

Redd's second basket of the second half gave him 23 points -- one more than the Boilermakers had at that point.

Ohio State rolled to a 42-22 halftime lead and was never threatened in the second half.

Last year, Purdue set a Big Ten record with 16 3-pointers in a 107-75 win at Ohio State. This time, the Boilermakers missed 14 of their 15 attempts from behind the line.

(4) MARYLAND 77, GEORGIA TECH 62: At College Park, Md., Terence Morris scored 20 points and forced Georgia Tech into 27 turnovers.

After Tech scored seven straight points to take its only lead of the game at 57-56, Maryland closed with a 21-5 run to beat the Jackets for the sixth straight time.

Laron Profit scored 15 points and Steve Francis 14 for the Terrapins (17-2, 5-1 ACC), who matched their best record after 19 games in school history.

Jason Floyd scored 16 points for Tech (11-7, 2-4), which has lost four of its last five games.

NEW MEXICO STATE 76, (12) NEW MEXICO 55: Billy Keys scored 24 points as New Mexico State handed New Mexico its worst loss in the series in 40 years.

New Mexico State (12-5) won its fifth straight, and snapped a seven-game losing streak in the series. It was Lou Henson's 693rd career victory, leaving him seven shy of becoming the 13th Division I coach to reach 700.

Kenny Thomas had 18 points and nine rebounds for visiting New Mexico (16-3), which shot only 34 percent from the field.
