Ohio State Leads Michigan 31-27 At Halftime Of Big Ten Semi-Final

Jon Diebler is leading the Ohio State Buckeyes over the Michigan Wolverines at halftime in Indianapolis, with 12 points and 3 rebounds. Freshman phenomenon Jared Sullinger is having his way with the Wolverines down low, with 7 points and 8 rebounds already. Given the size advantage the Buckeyes hold over Michigan, Sullinger may approach 20 rebounds again today.

The Wolverines have kept it close with the Buckeyes in this high scoring game by hitting four three pointers as a team, and getting good scoring production from Darius Morris.  Tim Hardaway jr. has played well so far as well, with 6 points. For the Wolverines to stay in this game though, they are going to need to hit many more of their three point shots, because they are already being out rebounded 18-9, and wont have many shots at second chance points.

The winner today will advance to the championship game tomorrow afternoon against the winner of the Penn State and Michigan State game later today.
