Ohio State-Nebraska score update: Bucks in control, 40-30

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Buckeyes started slow, and while Nebraska played a solid half, OSU regained control and head into the second half comfortably up 10.

Ohio State got out to a slow start for the second time in as many Big Ten conference games. It's almost like a noon game after a gut-wrenching Orange Bowl that ended around 1 a.m. ET may have had something to do with it. Regardless, after the lackluster start, Thad Matta's basketball Bucks got back on track and head into the intermission in control of the flow of the game.

Shannon Scott led the way for the Buckeyes with 8 points on a 3-for-5 shooting performance. Sam Thompson made a pair of late first half free throws to pad his point total to 6 while LaQuinton Ross and Marc Loving weren't far behind with 5 a piece. Aaron Craft had a Craft-ian 2 steals in the first. As is usually the case, Terran Petteway paced things for the Huskers with Ray Gallegos also hot (both finished with 6 points).

For the second half, Ohio State just needs to continue playing their game. They're the better team, and particularly toward the end of the first, they looked it. Both the Buckeyes' defense and offenses were clicking and if they stay motivated, they should be able to do as expected.
