Ohio State Vs. Kansas, Final Four 2012 Halftime Score: Sharp Buckeyes Lead Jayhawks 34-25

With a date in Monday's finale against Kentucky on the line, the Ohio State Buckeyes lead the Jayhawks 34-25 after 20 minutes of action in Saturday night's Final Four battle.

Thad Matta's team is shooting an impressive 50% (5 of 10) from three-point range, and leading scorer William Buford (8 points) has added a pair of triples in addition to his team-high (tie) four rebounds.

The Jayhawks have managed to grab seven offensive rebounds in the game, but are shooting just 36.7% as a team. All-American forwards Jared Sullinger (7 points, 4 rebounds) and Thomas Robinson (8 points, 3 rebounds) have each made their respective presences known during the game, and will be expected to go toe-to-toe in the low post in the second half.
