March Madness 2012, Gonzaga Vs. Ohio State Score Update: Buckeyes Lead 39-37 At Halftime

The Gonzaga Bulldogs are trying to pull the upset over the Ohio State Buckets in the third round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament. Early in the game Gonzaga pulled out to a lead and held it for much of the first half. The Buckeyes began sinking their three-point shots however and got back into the game, taking a lead right before the half.

The Bulldogs played well in the first half, but will need to defend the three-point shot better in the second half of the game. Sam Dower led Gonzaga in scoring with nine points off the bench with six rebounds. Elias Harris and Kevin Pangos also added seven points each for the Bulldogs.

For the Buckeyes, Aaron Craft led the way in the first half with 10 points with 7 assists and 2 steals while Deshaun Thomas led the way in scoring with 12 points, hitting on two of his three three-point shot attempts.
