Ohio State continues its Florida pipeline with four-star commit Tyreke Johnson

"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.

But while the ball was in flight, guard Jaaron Simmons was whistled for a foul - Michigan's seventh of the half - underneath the basket on Ohio State forward Kaleb Wesson to put the Buckeyes in the bonus.

On Tuesday, five-star defensive back Tyreke Johnson (6-foot-1, 191 pounds, Jacksonville, Fla.) announced via video with 247Sports that he had committed to Ohio State. The Times-Union's 2017 Super 24 and defensive player of the year Shaun Wade signed with the Buckeyes in last season's class.

The Buckeyes took advantage and rattled off 10 straight points with two layups from Tate and four straight points by Bates-Diop to grab a 49-46 lead with 11:41 remaining.

MI regained the lead 60-56 with a 7-0 run, but the Buckeyes outscored the Wolverines 14-2 the rest of the way. The Ohio State official visit this fall, however, really secured the lead for Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes. "They made plays, and played with energy and toughness and we didn't". "I'm sure us getting down 20 had something to do with it".

It was a completely different story in the first half for MI. "They make them both, five points and all of a sudden (20-point lead) goes to 13 (at halftime) just like that".

The span started with nine straight points by the Wolverines on a Poole layup, Robinson 3-pointer, Wagner dunk and two Abdur-Rahkman free throws to make it 36-17 at the 4:05 mark. 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.

MI was just 5 of 29, including 1 of 12 from 3-point range, from the floor in the second half.

"We knew in the first half if we kept playing like that, we would have gotten run out of the gym", Williams said. "I'm incredibly disappointed, I think everybody on the bus is incredibly disappointed". The Buckeyes basketball team shocked the Wolverines on Monday with a 71-62 home win.
