January 29, 2015
Another slow start and another ink-drying night for D’Angelo Russell. It’s become the norm for the Ohio State men’s basketball team as the freshman guard filled up the box score and led the Buckeyes to a 80-56 win against No. 16 Maryland on Thursday night at the Schottenstein Center. Freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate said the victory was a result of OSU’s best performance of the season. “We had great energy from the start.

New lineup brings results as Buckeyes win 3rd-straight game

January 29, 2015
The Ohio State men’s basketball team stood at 14-5, 3-3 just eight days ago when coach Thad Matta decided to make a change to the starting lineup. Since then, the Buckeyes are 3-0, including back-to-back wins against top-25 teams at home, the most recent an 80-56 shellacking of the No. 16 Maryland Terrapins on Thursday night. Matta flipped senior center Amir Williams and sophomore forward Marc Loving in favor of redshirt-senior forward Anthony Lee and freshman forward Jae’Sean Tate, and the Buckeyes haven’t looked back. Matta said the reason for the switch was more a matter of Tate’s improved play than a lack of contribution from Loving. “We felt that… Read more

Ohio State prepares for American Heart Month

January 29, 2015
Outside of the Ross Heart Hospital at the Ohio State Wexner Medical Center, red hearts can be seen dangling from trees in preparation for February — American Heart Month. Many young people do not pay attention to the issue of heart-related illnesses because they don’t think it’s pertinent to them, said Dr. Martha Gulati, a cardiologist at the hospital and the director of Women’s Cardiovascular Health, in an email. Gulati said it is important that college students, no matter their gender, keep track of their cholesterol and lead a healthy lifestyle. “College-aged kids should know, (and) they’re usually surprised to know, that heart disease is their No. 1 killer, too,”… Read more
