Ohio State Vs. Penn State: Buckyes Grab Lead

Penn State turns the ball over coming out of the break but forces a stop. Andrew Jones is fouled coming back down the court.

Aaron Craft is into the game for Ohio State. He had 19 points in the Buckeyes' win in Columbus back in January.The Nittany Lions definitely don't want him to beat them this time around.

At the under-12 timeout, it's 13-8 Ohio State. Penn State is shooting 18% as I write this. Pretty remarkable the Lions are only down five here.

Jared Sullinger is definitely a man-child in the post. He's got a big butt for lack of a better term and he can really move people around almost at will.

The crowd is growing restless as the Lions continue to throw up bricks.

Billy Oliver will take over the assignment on Sullinger as Andrew Jones goes to the bench with two fouls. Sullinger exposed Oliver one-on-one in Columbus on the game's final possession so we'll see how that goes this time around.

Jeff Brooks ends Penn State's drought, but Sullinger answers at the other end. Buckeyes follow that up with a run out dunk to William Buford to put Ohio State up 22-10 with 7:52 to play. Ed DeChellis calls timeout.
