Ohio State-Ohio Score update: Bucks lead 40-28 at half

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

After a half in Columbus, the Buckeyes lead their in-state rivals from the southeast.

After 20 minutes of play in Columbus, Ohio State are out to a 40-28 lead. OSU jumped out to an early 7-0 lead, which forced Ohio head coach Jim Christian to take a timeout 1:49 in, and the Buckeyes haven't looked back.

The Bucks have used a balanced attack with five players with at least 5 points, including Sam Thompson who is leading Ohio State with 8 points. Aaron Craft has added 7 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds for the Buckeyes.

Stevie Taylor has paced Ohio with 13 points, but the Bobcats were plagued with some early foul trouble, letting Ohio State get into the bonus with just over 5 minutes gone in the first half. Senior Nick Kellogg has added 9 points for the Bobcats, with his father Clark watching from the stands at Value City Arena.

KEY STATS:

  • Aaron Craft picked up his 250th career steal in the first  half making him just one of three Big Ten players all-time with 500+ assists & 250 steals.
  • Ohio State shooting 11-24 from the field (46%), OU is just 9-26 (35%).
  • Ohio State bench points, 14, Ohio U bench points, 1.
