Ohio State Vs. Loyola Score: Buckeyes Lead 42-31 At Halftime

The Loyola Greyhounds have been competitive in the first half, but there's a pretty clear talent gap between them and the No. 2 seed Ohio State Buckeyes. Jared Sullinger isn't having a fantastic game for OSU -- he's just 4-12 from the floor -- but the Buckeyes have still been able to create lots of quality buckets in the paint. Loyola is playing very hard on defense, but just isn't making enough baskets to match Ohio State, and the Buckeyes lead 42-31 at the half.

Deshaun Thomas leads the Buckeyes with 14 points on 5-12 shooting, and he has six rebounds, along with Sullinger. Lenzalle Smith leads the Buckeyes with seven boards, and that's where OSU has their biggest advantage. They're shooting just 34 percent, but they have the lead thanks to their 10 offensive rebounds. They're also getting to the charity stripe, and they're 15-18 from the free-throw line.
