Kansas Vs. Ohio State Final Score: Jayhawks Upset Buckeyes, 78-67

The Kansas Jayhawks pulled off the upset over the No. 2 Ohio St. Buckeyes, 78-67 and gave Ohio State their first loss on the year. Ohio State was without their leading scorer Jared Sullinger who missed the game due to back spasms. The Buckeyes were not able to make up the 19 points and 10 rebounds which Sullinger averages per game.

Kansas took advantage of Ohio State missing their star player and had one of their better defensive efforts on the season as they held Ohio State to 38 percent shooting from the field and 29 percent from the three-point line, and held Ohio State to 15 points below their per game average. Ohio State did have three players in double figures and were led by William Buford who scored 21 points on the day, but their bench was of little help and scored only four points.

Kansas on the other hand shot extremely well by shooting 58 percent from the field and 52 percent from beyond the arc. Kansas was led in scoring by Thomas Robinson who scored 21 points to lead all Jayhawks and all of his points came on three point shots.
