Talor Battle has had a rough day shooting from the floor. He's 4-12 for the game. He does still have 11 points, but he's not nearly as efficient as he was against Illinois.
The good news for Penn State is that Ohio State already has seven fouls. The Lions will be shooting foul shots the rest of the way, which is good for an offense that hasn't been nearly as hot as it was shooting in the first half.
Andrew Jones gets another jumper. He's really developed a touch from outside of five feet. That really stretches defenses out, and that's good news for Penn State.
Penn State closes to 55-54 after a runner by Jeff Brooks in the lane, forcing a timeout. The Buckeyes still have all the peripherals going their way, but the Lions are finding a way to stay in the game.
Billy Oliver has grabbed a few offensive boards, but Talor Battle hasn't been able to make shots off of them.
With 6:33 to play, Penn State trails Ohio State 57-53 in Columbus.
