Ohio State's made it to the 2012 Final Four without much help from senior shooter William Buford. Now, on the biggest stage of the season, Buford seems to be coming out of a slump against Kansas. He's staked Ohio State to a 21-13 lead with under eight minutes to go in the first half.
Buford's eight points have come on two threes and another field goal, and he's also grabbed four rebounds. He leads Ohio State in both categories, though he's tied with Jared Sullinger (five points, four rebounds) for the lead on the board.
Kansas hasn't been able to keep up so far, either. The Jayhawks are a miserable 6-for-21 from the field.
