Ohio State Vs. Kansas Score Update: Buckeyes Trail 35-29 At Half

The Ohio State Buckeyes find themselves trailing in a tilt of top-15s on Saturday, as the Kansas Jayhawks lead them at the half by a margin of 35-29. It's not a wide margin by any means, but it's significant because OSU is at the other end of the top-15 spectrum, sitting at No. 2 and sporting an undefeated 8-0 record, while Kansas, with a 6-2 record, is at No. 13.

Ohio State clearly is missing their best player, as Jared Sullinger is not playing this game with back spasms. Sullinger also missed the team's last game, against Texas-Pan American. Evan Ravenel filled in for him at that point and had a career high 11 points. At the half, though, Ravenel is currently 0-2 in shooting, but has made all four of his free throw attempts.

Deshaun Thomas is leading the way for the Buckeyes, with 15 points, two rebounds and a steall, and is shooting 5-for-8 and 3-for-5 in three pointers. Tyshawn Taylor leads the way for the Jayhawks, with four points, two rebounds and eight assists.
