Michigan's run either in sole possession or tied for first place in the Big Ten is over. Ohio State's 64-49 win over the Wolverines in Columbus on Sunday afternoon took care of that.

In reality, though, this was always going to be one of Michigan's toughest games of the season -- on the road against one of the top teams in the country. It is a matchup where the Wolverines -- like they did on Sunday -- have to almost sell out defensively on doubling Ohio State star Jared Sullinger, allowing for open offensive rebounds and kick-outs for 3-pointers.

That, along with offensive struggles, were the difference in the game. Here are three major factors to what happened in Value City Arena on Sunday afternoon.
