Buckeyes up at half

INDIANAPOLIS -- Apparently the Purdue Boilermakers were watching Rob Wilson do his thing for Wisconsin earlier today.

It's halftime here in the last game of the night, and the Boilers are still in this, despite a horrendous 1-of-8 start. Mostly they're in it because the arc has been friendly; they're 6-of-13 from the three-point line so far, which is why they're only down four to the Buckeyes, who are absolutely flaying them inside.

As for the Buckeyes .... Deshaun Thomas has his shot working. He's got 14 at halftime. Jared Sullinger, meanwhile, has 15 and six boards.

If the Purdues can slow either one of them down, they've got a real shot here.
