Big Ten Championship 2012: Ohio State Trail Michigan State 34-32 At Half

The Ohio State Buckeyes are trailing at the half to the Michigan State Spartans 34-32, but it wasn't for a lack of good basketball. Ohio State out-rebounded the heck out of the Spartans throughout the first half and were able to keep their fouls down as well but a late flurry of points by the Spartans kept them top as the half ended.

Both teams have had their problems, and Ohio State has been particularly bad at shooting three pointers with zero makes from downtown. The Spartans haven't done incredibly well either but do have three makes from past the line out of their chances.

The Buckeyes' William Buford leads all scorers in the game so far with ten points and a rebound. The bench hasn't done much outside of Shannon Scott for Ohio State, who has all four bench points.

After an absoluely thrilling finish from both teams the last time they met on the last day of the regular season, we might just see another wonderful ending to determine who gets the Big Ten championship.
