Dosunmu's return powers No. 4 Illinois over No. 7 Ohio State

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After missing three games with a concussion and facial injuries, Illinois star Ayo Dosunmu returned Saturday wearing a protective mask he chose because it makes him look a little like a superhero.

Dosunmu played the part with a 19-point performance, and the No. 4 Illini rallied late to beat reeling No. 7 Ohio State 73-68.

"They gave me different options of masks to wear, and I thought this was the best mask for me," he said of the protective covering over his broken nose and upper face. "I'm into comic books and stuff. I feel like a superhero with a black mask on."
