Big Ten Tournament 2012, Michigan Vs. Ohio State Score Update: Wolverines Down 13 At Half, 34-21

With a chance to advance to the Big Ten title game against the Michigan State Spartans, the Michigan Wolverines are did just about everything wrong against the Ohio State Buckeyes in the first half on Saturday. Despite being out of sorts, they're lucky to be down by only 13 points, 34-21.

Michigan had eight turnovers in the first half and only seven baskets. They were 1-for-13 from three-point range and shot 28-percent overall. The starting five for Michigan was a combined 5-for-20. Trey Burke, who scored a career high 30 points last night, was 0-for-5.

Michigan does not have an answer for Jared Sullinger, either -- he had 16 points on 8-for-10 shooting and six rebounds.

Again, Michigan is lucky to be down 13. Maybe they can get going in the second half and still squeak one out.
