Upset alert? Ohio State basketball tied with UMass Lowell at halftime
Ohio State basketball could be in some trouble on Sunday afternoon.
The Buckeyes are tied with UMass Lowell at halftime after a hard-fought first half by the River Hawks.
Ohio State shot just 34.2 percent from the field in the first half and went 0-for-8 from 3-point range.
Duane Washington Jr. and E.J. Liddell both scored eight points before the break. All other Buckeyes combined for 17 points on 22 shots.
Surprisingly, turnovers were not a problem for the Buckeyes in the first half. They gave it up just three times and won the rebounding battle 25-17.
On the other side of the floor, the River Hawks lived on the 3-point ball. They made 6-of-15 attempts, good enough for a 40 percent clip in the first half. They were 35.7 percent from the field overall.
UMass Lowell has been frisky to start the season. It has a victory over San Francisco, who then turned around and beat No. 4 Virginia last week.
Ohio State is 1-0 this season after a 94-67 victory over Illinois State in the season opener.
