Mo Wagner led the Wolverines with 14 points and nine rebounds, while Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and Zavier Simpson each had 11 points.

The Buckeyes (7-3, 2-0 Big Ten) sprinted out on a blistering 19-3 run to begin the second half, following a 7-0 burst to end the first.

"We knew in the first half if we kept playing like that, we would have gotten run out of the gym", Williams said.

"I think all of them have had moments where they've played really well and also stuff where we can look and say, 'OK, this is how we need to improve in these particular areas, '" Holtmann said.

"As good as we were in the first 18 minutes of the first half, we were just equally as bad in the second half", MI coach John Beilein said.

Ohio State trailed MI by 20 points in the first half, yet outscored the Wolverines 48-19 the rest of the game to rejuvenate what had been a lifeless crowd.

The play in question occurred right after MI had taken its largest lead of the game, 43-23, on a Moritz Wagner 3-pointer with 1:31 remaining before halftime.

The Wolverines (7-3, 1-1 Big Ten) shot a dismal 17.2 percent in the second half, after hitting 56.7 percent in the first.

Although Ohio State did not make a single 3 in the second half, the Buckeyes used their bothersome defense to take control of the game. MI led by as many as 20 in the half, but the 7-0 run - capped by a monster dunk by JaeSean Tate - pulled it closer. "We could have had this win today". "I'm just telling you - and this is my favorite saying - we get what we deserve".

Eli Brooks temporarily stopped the bleeding with a corner 3-pointer but it wasn't enough to keep Ohio State at bay as MI missed its next eight shot attempts. The crowd energy in the second half was exciting, he said. "When things got a little tough, we really had trouble stepping up".

Ohio State's defense continued to offer little resistance as MI went on a stretch where it scored on 10 of 12 possessions to take command and start pulling away. He finished with three points.

But the Buckeyes didn't buckle and scored the final seven points of the half, which included an unconventional five-point play on a made 3-pointer and a foul away from the basket with Ohio State in the bonus, to shift the momentum and pull within 43-30 at the break.
