Big Ten: Halftime Stats, Buckeyes Start Strong

By Phil Kasiecki - March 11, 2007

CHICAGO - After a good little ice cream snack, we're underway in the second half. A few halftime stats of note:

  • Ohio State shot nearly 46 percent from the field, while Wisconsin shot 33 percent.
  • Wisconsin had a 21-11 edge on the boards, continuing a yo-yo of performances on the glass by the Buckeyes to this point.
  • Wisconsin had 12 turnovers in the first half, which Ohio State turned into 12 points.
  • Mike Conley, Jr. leads the Buckeyes with 12 points on 5-7 shooting, while Wisconsin got seven each from Alando Tucker and Jason Boahannon.

As I write this, the Buckeyes have started strong in the second half, and after a dunk off a rebound by Greg Oden, they lead 34-23 with Wisconsin taking the 30-second timeout that extends to a media timeout at the 17:50 mark.

Halftime entertainment was the San Francisco Red Panda Acrobat, a lovely lady who did quite the balancing act on the unicycle. The only complaint was a bad toss from the Badger mascot to her that was a little too low to handle. As good as some of the halftime shows were in these four days, it's this writer's opinion that today's was the best of them all.
