Ohio State men’s soccer advances to NCAA Tournament 2nd round after PK thriller

November 21, 2014
Five rounds of penalty kicks weren’t enough to decide a winner. Nor were six, or 10 or 14. It took a 15-round penalty kick shootout for the Ohio State men’s soccer team to advance past Akron, 1-1 (13-12), in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night. “I think this result is what being a Buckeye is all about,” redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov said. “We battled through the end, we believed we could do it, we persevered and we did it.” The teams went back-and-forth until Ivanov denied Akron redshirt-freshman midfielder/defender Robby Dambrot to open the 15th round. OSU junior midfielder Zach Mason then put it into the net… Read more

Ohio State men’s hockey falls 3-1 in Big Ten opener

November 21, 2014
Late in the third period of Thursday’s game, Ohio State men’s hockey junior forward Tyler Lundey hopped over the boards and onto the ice. The Buckeyes’ extra attacker cut his team’s deficit to 3-1 with 2:33 remaining, but the goal did little more than prove OSU’s ever-apparent inconsistency. “I certainly see some mistakes that are becoming too much of an every game appearance for us,” OSU coach Steve Rohlik said. “It’s not an X’s and O thing, it’s a matter of understanding.” Following a flurry of offensive activity, the Buckeyes (3-7-1, 0-1-0) lost, 3-1, at home against Michigan State in its first Big Ten matchup of the season. OSU’s desperation… Read more

Ohio State women’s volleyball completes regular season sweep of Iowa

November 20, 2014
The Ohio State women’s volleyball team got back on the winning side Wednesday as the No. 20 Buckeyes defeated Iowa, completing a season sweep of the Hawkeyes in three sets. The Buckeyes’ (19-10, 10-7) closest set was the second, as their largest lead was three. OSU won the first and second sets by at least five points each  (25-20, 28-26, 25-19). Coach Geoff Carlston said winning that extended second set allowed the momentum to shift toward OSU going into the third. “We weren’t playing well,” Carlston said.  “That (second set) was a game changer.  You lose that one and it’s a different night.” Buckeye junior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell led… Read more

Ohio State basketball eases to 11-point win against Marquette

November 19, 2014
The No. 20 Ohio State men’s basketball team overcame early mistakes to top Marquette for the second time in as many seasons. The Buckeyes (2-0) won, 74-63, to give the Golden Eagles (1-1) their first loss of the season on Tuesday night at the Schottenstein Center. Senior guard Shannon Scott finished the game with 14 assists, tied for the second most in a single game in program history. Scott credited the players beside him on the court for his big assist numbers. “I just have so many weapons around me, it makes the game a lot easier,” Scott said after the game. Scott proceeded to name off all nine of… Read more

Mirror Lake jump cost about $100K last year

November 17, 2014
The Mirror Lake jump cost the university an estimated $100,000 last year — more than double what it cost before students were required to obtain wristbands for entry into a fenced-off area around the lake. And while many students took to the lake a night early last year to protest those requirements, it’s unclear what University Police will do if that happens again. As for this year, the cost of the event won’t be known until after the event, Administration and Planning spokesman Dan Hedman said in a Monday email. “Because this is not a university event, it is difficult to know in advance how much will be needed to… Read more

Robin Wright: ‘There’s always another pinnacle to strive for’

November 17, 2014
Robin Wright hasn’t hit all of her goals quite yet. The actress and director came to Ohio State on Monday to speak at the Ohio Union in a forum akin to “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” The Texas native is famous for her roles as Princess Buttercup in “The Princess Bride” and Jenny Curran in “Forrest Gump.” Since 2013, she’s starred as Claire Underwood in the Netflix political thriller “House of Cards” — a role that’s made her the first actress to win a Golden Globe for a television series distributed online only. But now, at 48, she told The Lantern she’s hoping to move away from acting into directing. She… Read more

Ohio State women’s hockey swept by No. 2 Minnesota

November 16, 2014
The Ohio State women’s hockey team improved after a 4-2 loss to Minnesota, but still found itself on the losing end of a weekend sweep. The Buckeyes fell by a score of 5-3 to the Golden Gophers in Saturday afternoon’s game, completing Minnesota’s road sweep. Although the game didn’t go the way OSU hoped, senior forward Taylor Kuehl said she was happy with the team’s fight in Saturday’s matchup. “I think we came out with a lot more energy today, I think we knew we had to,” Kuehl said. “We didn’t want to play to them, we wanted to play our own game, which I think we did a lot… Read more

Opinion: Scottish haggis hurling a worthwhile cultural experience

November 16, 2014
Haggis is a traditional Scottish food, consisting of sheep heart, liver and lungs — encased into a sheep’s stomach. Despite my study abroad professor’s persistent persuading to get us all to try it while we were in Edinburgh, Scotland, this past May, I admittedly never did. I saw fellow classmates order the dish as an appetizer at a group dinner, but looking at it was enough for me. Good news, though: the Scottish don’t just eat this obscure food (obscure by U.S. standards that is — seriously, it’s illegal here because of the lung), they’ve made a sport out of it called haggis hurling. So, we did it. My study… Read more

Ohio State women’s basketball splits first 2 games of 2014-15 season

November 16, 2014
The Ohio State women’s basketball team opened its season with a loss on the road to Virginia but bounced back with a win in its home opener against St. Francis, 113-97. The Buckeyes kicked off the game with a 22-11 run to take the early lead against St. Francis. The offensive momentum continued for OSU as it held a lead of 15 halfway through the first half. The Red Flash refused to go down, closing out the rest of the half with a 36-20 run. The Buckeyes entered halftime with a lead of 57-55. Coach Kevin McGuff said he wasn’t pleased with what he saw from OSU on the defensive… Read more
