The Michigan Wolverines are in Columbus to play the Ohio St. Buckeyes on Sunday afternoon as the two Big Ten teams meet in a ranked match-up. The Wolverines entered as the No. 22 team in the nation, but would seem in prime position to move up if they're able to knock off the third-ranked Buckeyes on the road.
The Wolverines are in striking distance of doing just that heading into halftime, too, as Michigan trails by just three points against the former top-ranked Buckeyes. Lenzelle Smith Jr. scored nine points and pulled down seven rebounds in the first half to give the Buckeyes a 24-21 halftime lead.
The Wolverines were led by Jordan Morgan with six points and three rebounds in the first 20 minutes of Sunday's game, but he'll need some help in the second half if the Wolverines want to keep the game close.
