Kansas Vs. Ohio State Halftime Score: Jayhawks Struggling, Trail 34-25

The Kansas Jayhawks offense is struggling quite a bit against the Ohio St. Buckeyes and trail 34-25 at the half, and they trailed by 13 points multiple times. The Ohio State defense has completely shut down the Kansas offense who is shooting only 37 percent from the field, and Kansas' two best players Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson have combined for 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

Taylor and Robinson have been missing open shots and with those two players have taken half of Kansas' shots, so when they do not play well it is likely that Kansas is losing at the half. Kansas has also struggled getting to the free throw line and they took their first free attempt with 23 seconds left in the half.

Ohio State has their nine-point lead due to making 46 percent of their shots and converting 5-of-6 three-point shots. The scoring for Ohio State has been balanced with William Buford leading the team with eight points and is a perfect 3-of-3 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line.

Kansas will need to have Taylor and Robinson step up their game and make their open shots if they want to get back in this game.
