Saturday, December 5, 2009 - 2:41pm

Ohio State's Evan Turner fell hard on his back on a dunk attempt and left the 15th-ranked Buckeyes' game against Eastern Michigan.

Turner was taken to The Ohio State University Medical Center for X-rays of his lower back.

Team spokesman Dan Wallenberg said Turner was able to walk out of the arena and that he was accompanied by his family.

Turner drove the lane and was fouled as he went for a dunk with 13:27 left in the first half on Saturday.
