2H Illinois +5.5

Ohio State was up 30-22 and then hit 1 bucket in the final 7:20 and hit 2 ft... had 9 turnovers in that span of time.

34-38 at half ohio state trails

only reason they are only down 4 is Illinois also has 10 turnovers... but the Buckeyes kept failing to capitalize on them and either missed shots, got blocked or turned it back over. Playing frantic. Can't execute offense. Refs are allowing them to play real tight defense all over OSU and giving them home cooking at the united center with a number of bad calls and no calls then osu was fouled
