Michigan Vs. Penn State First Half Updates: Wolverines Tie The Game

Out of the timeout, Penn State only has two of its regular starters on the floor. They'll need their role players to continue to hang in there as the game moves along.

Not sure if I mentioned this before, but the video boards are out here today at the Bryce Jordan Center. The scoreboard malfunctioned during the Wisconsin game last week as well, so it hasn't been a good week for the Jordan Center, a building independent of the athletic department. Bon Jovi is using the building to practice for its tour, so that might have contributed to it.

Tre Bowman checks into the game for Cammeron Woodyard.

Andrew Jones picks up his second personal foul. That's big. David Jackson checks back into the game for him as a chorus of boos rains down on the refs.

Darius Morris is getting booed loudly every time he touches the ball for allegedly flopping to draw Jones' second foul. He's drawing more abuse from Nittany Nation than anyone has in a long time.

Michigan hits a trio of 3-pointers to cut the Penn State lead to two. And 11-point lead just dissolved in a matter of a minute or two. Penn State calls timeout.

Darius Morris gets a basket and-one tie tie the game. He'll shoot for the lead when the teams come back. With 1:51 to play in the half, the score is tied at 24.
