This Buckeye News Update starts with a look back at Buckeye athletics, both home and away. First we take you back at the men’s basketball team’s road loss to Michigan State. The loss came at the hands of Spartan guard Denzel Valentine, who made a clutch three to give MSU the win on Valentine’s day.
Our hockey reporter Evan Szymkowicz takes you to the Schottenstein Center for a report on the men’s hockey team’s weekend series with Wisconsin. The Buckeyes won the first game by a score of 2-1, but the second game went to the Badgers who won 3-2.
After the loss, Coach Steve Rohlik said “I talked to the guys after and I said “you guys have to play desperate”. And we talked about playoff hockey, and to me – that’s certainly a different version of playoff hockey than I understand”.
Next up, Amanda Vaughn takes you inside the Ohio Union for Friday night’s Taste of OSU, where different cultural and ethnic groups danced and brought food for the multicultural event.
Megan McCarthy, a program director from the office of international affairs, said of the event ; “We have sixty-eight hundred international students and so its really exciting for them to have the opportunity to share where they’re from”.
Lastly, our meteorologist Russell Bird tells you if the frigid temperatures are here to stay in Columbus. For more on today’s stories, search for the print stories here on the lantern.com.
