B1G Tournament Game 2 (Nebraska) Semi-live Blog

We are about 10 mins away from tip off. Just saw Michigan avoid getting upset by the Illini 64-63. This match with Nebraska is a rubber match game. Ohio State beat Nebraska at home by 31 points earlier this year than 2 weeks later went and lost at Nebraska by 6 points. Ohio State needs this win to advance to play Michigan tomorrow in the semi-finals. The game will come down to who shots the ball better today LaQuinton Ross for OSU or Terran Petteway for the Cornhuskers. I will do my best to give as many updates as possible as soon the game starts. Go Bucks!!!

FIRST HALF

Under 16 minute timeout- Early on the Buckeyes are playing extremely well and lead 6-3. Defensively they have held Nebraska to 1-6 shooting and have a steal that led to a Slam Thompson fast break slam dunk. Amir Williams and Trey McDonald both with awful offensive fouls on moving screens. OSU is shooting 43% early.

14:54 left in the 1st half- Tim Miles and Nebraska are forced to take a quick timeout after OSU comes out hitting. Lenzelle with a 3 and Q with a long 2. Up 11-3 now. Go Bucks!!!

Under 12 min timeout- Things are getting sloppy and chippy. Ohio State with 6 turnovers and 4 fouls right now. Nebraska with 2 TOs and 3 fouls. Ohio State is shooting 56% right now and if they could just make better passes would have a big lead. Nebraska is shooting 16% right now. OSU up 11-7 with Amedeo going to the line to shoot 2 FTs.

Under 8 min TO- It is the Amir Williams show folks it is his world and we just live in it. Amir is 4-5 for 8 points and 3 rebs and 1 block. OSU is shooting 60% and leads Nebraska 20-14.

Under 4 mins TO- LaQuinton Ross is starting to get hot now. He is 4-4 for 8 points and 4 rebounds. Nebraska is keeping themself in the game with 3 pointers galore. They are 5-13 from behind the Arc and just 4 for 15 from inside it. OSU is up 27-25 and has the ball.

Halftime- Nebraska hits a few open looks to end the half and now lead OSU 31-28. OSUs big issue is 9 turnovers in the first half and poor 3 point defense. If OSU can clean up their passes and keep shooting at 52% they will win this game. If they go cold early in the 2nd half it wont end well.
