The Ohio State Buckeyes may be trailing the Michigan State Spartans 34-32 at halftime, but they do have the leading scorer in the game so far with William Buford putting together a good first half.
Buford had 4/9 shooting in the first period and was the only player on the court who scored in the double digits, with ten points along with a rebound.
The Buckeyes bench hasn't done all that much to help out Ohio State's chances in this one so they'll need the names like Buford to keep producing if they want to stage a comeback like they did in the last game of the regular season and take home their second straight Big Ten title.
