OSU sophomore forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) carries the ball during a game against Maryland on Jan. 31 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 61-66. Credit: Muyao Shen | Asst. Photo EditorIf the goal was to improve upon its 35-point loss the last time the Ohio State men’s basketball team took on Maryland, Sunday’s tight matinee affair at the Schottenstein Center could be considered a sort of victory.But with the need for signature wins at an all-time high as its NCAA tournament hopes vanish further and further into the rearview mirror, OSU (14-9, 6-4) is in no position to pick up “sort of victories.” It needs all the real victories it can get, one of which it failed to achieve against the No. 8 Terrapins (19-3, 8-2) on Sunday despite a strong effort against one of the nation’s better teams, falling 66-61.“I’ve never been a big fan of moral victories,” OSU coach Thad Matta said. “…You’ve got to find some positives, but we had a chance to win the basketball game.”A strong beginning to the game quickly devolved into an immense struggle to put the ball in the hoop, as the Buckeyes missed 27 of the final 37 shots they took in the game, shooting 35.1 percent overall. Maryland also struggled from the field, particularly in the second half, shooting 30 percent over the final 20 minutes.“We just came out with more energy, more effort, we put it all on the line,” OSU sophomore forward Jae’Sean Tate said. “Just there at the end we came up short. Also credit to Maryland, they made some big-time shots down the stretch.”The game began at a torrid offensive pace for both teams, with 31 combined points being scored in the first seven minutes. The Buckeyes did much of their damage from the outside, knocking down each of their first three 3-point attempts and receiving a very quick 10 points from Tate.But OSU knew well not to put too much stock in the early happenings against the Terrapins. On Jan. 16 in College Park, Maryland, OSU trailed by just two points at the 11:42 mark and went on to lose 100-65. On Sunday, it was OSU holding the slim two-point lead at that time, hoping to hold off a similar Maryland onslaught.But the Buckeyes went ice cold from that point, hitting just one of their next nine field-goal attempts. Fortunately for the home crowd of 16,592 at the Schottenstein Center, Maryland failed to completely take advantage, only managing to grab a lead as high as six points, which was the 37-31 score at the half.As has been a recurring theme this season, OSU managed to leave a good deal of points at the free-throw line in the first half, shooting just 6-of-11. Those misses came at an inopportune time for the Buckeyes, as all five happened during OSU’s 1-of-12 shooting stretch to end the half. OSU made just three of its eight free throws during that time.“I was very upset at halftime, just with the way we closed out the first half,” Matta said.Tate led OSU with 10 points in the first 20 minutes, though all of them came within the first seven minutes of the game. Freshman guard A.J. Harris and sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop chipped in six points apiece.It was a more balanced effort in the first half for Maryland, which has five points averaging double-figure scoring this season. Senior forward Jake Layman led all first-half scorers with 12 points, while sophomore guard Melo Trimble had nine points and junior forward Robert Carter Jr. and freshman center Diamond Stone each had eight.The Buckeyes shot just 34.4 percent from the field in the first half, a number almost unthinkable after their 10-of-20 start. Maryland countered at a 50-percent clip, shooting 15-of-30. The Buckeyes were able to hold on in part due to a 7-4 turnover margin and a 10-6 second-chance point advantage.Things did not warm up in the second half, with the Buckeyes missing five of their first six shots. That was balanced out by an equally cold 1-of-7 start to the half for Maryland, as OSU was able to cut the deficit to just two points after a 3-pointer by redshirt sophomore guard Kam Williams.Maryland grew the lead back to five points from there, but a split at the free-throw line followed by a put-back dunk by freshman center Daniel Giddens brought the margin back to two points and rose the home crowd to its feet.A quick Maryland timeout failed to stop the momentum, as a turnover and missed layup gave the Buckeyes a few chances to tie the game or take the lead. OSU was unable to capitalize, however, with a good look at a layup by Tate rolling out.“I definitely thought that going into the last 10 minutes of the game that we had this one,” Tate said. “But give credit to Maryland as a top-five team.”But the Terrapins kept missing the shots and the Buckeyes kept battling, eventually grabbing the lead with seven minutes remaining on an and-1 jumper by junior forward Marc Loving, putting the home team up 49-48.“Give Ohio State a lot of credit, we struggled offensively, they did a nice job defensively, and it kept the game close,” Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said.But a loose ball foul put Maryland back up by a point, giving it a lead it would not relinquish despite a close score throughout the final minutes of the game. Back-to-back 3-pointers by senior guard Rasheed Sulaimon and Trimble were the back-breakers on the OSU upset bid.“Veteran players make veteran plays,” Matta said. “I thought they did a heck of a job with staying with what they were trying to do, and I thought that was the difference.”Tate didn’t have an easy time scoring after his hot start, but he was a huge factor for the Buckeyes on defense, finishing with a pair of steals and matching up with some of Maryland’s top scorers. He finished with 16 points on just 6-of-18 shooting. He ended the day as the only OSU player in double figures, though Williams added nine points in the second half and Loving also finished with nine.“He’s a great player,” Turgeon said about Tate. “He’s got high energy. He’s a great athlete at the 4 which gives us fits.”Trimble led all scorers with 20 points, followed by Layman’s 16. Layman had a double-double for the Terrapins, adding 10 rebounds.A big difference in the contest came at the charity stripe, where OSU was 14-of-24 while Maryland was 20-of-23. “We were inches away, and those are things we’ve got to continue to — we’ve got to close that gap of that inch,” Matta said.“(Free throws) are the little things, that inch that we have to close down.”OSU is set to continue its Big Ten grind at Wisconsin on Thursday as the calendar flips to February. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. in Madison. read more

OSU sophomore offensive lineman Isaiah Prince (59) embraces redshirt freshman running back Mike Weber (25) after Weber’s touchdown in the first half of the Buckeyes game against Nebraska on Nov. 5. The Buckeyes won 62-3. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorWith today’s presidential election being arguably one of the largest ever, even the sports world is talking about politics — even Ohio State’s football team.On Monday, after a 62-3 drubbing of then No. 10 Nebraska, the questions asked by the media should have been all-encompassing of the way the Buckeyes systematically picked apart the Cornhuskers. Instead, OSU coach Urban Meyer fielded a few political questions near the end of the media availability session.When asked about the election, Meyer cracked a grin and gave one of his patented short replies.“What election?” Meyer said.Granted, it seems fair to assume he knows exactly what election he was asked about. Most of Meyer’s day entails dissecting opposing defenses and analyzing how to attack the offense of other Big Ten teams. Still, it would be hard to ignore the current political undertakings. With some coaxing, Meyer finally addressed the subject. Refraining from speaking any of his own political standpoints, he said the team has had discussions towards the process, and even set aside time during the offseason to further educate the team on how important voting is.“We had Patriot Week where I wanted to educate because it’s such a big and such an important day, in all seriousness, for all of us,” he said. “And so we had zero discussion about it now. Beat Maryland. I’m sure the families will have their conversations. I hope our guys vote, and we move forward. That’s why we did that, because I wanted to make sure when they go they educate themselves — not themselves. We educate them on the process, the job responsibility and how to.”Players have been discussing how important the brotherhood they share is for team success this season. An election that has driven a divide through the country could be grounds for ripping apart even the most tight-knit teams and locker rooms. This would seem bizarre for a team that has spoken so strongly towards the criticism of the media when a player has a down game. Redshirt junior Billy Price is a prime example of standing up for his fellow Buckeyes. When asked about the performance of sophomore Isaiah Prince following a loss to Penn State, Price did not hold anything back.“I’ll go to war for him right now,” Price said. “I have no problem (with that). I will not sit here and allow someone to nit-pick at him.”Price was not angered by the criticism, but said he felt the issues after Penn State were team issues, and should not fall on one player. That kind of camaraderie has been a vocal desire of Meyer since his arrival in Columbus.It seems unlikely every member of the Scarlet and Gray leans towards one side of the aisle. A team of over 100 total members on both the active roster and the practice squad is bound to have political feelings that differ from other teammates.But OSU has made a point of keeping feelings towards presidential candidates from dividing the team, while ensuring all members fully comprehend the gravity of a vote. Redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett said he, along with the rest of the team, accepts the choices all team members make today at the polls.“I think we have a team that understands that that’s part of what makes our country great is that people are … they have that opinion and that’s perfectly okay,” Barrett said. “I think that’s something great that we have as Americans and I understand that has something to do with your personal life and personal opinions but I don’t think that’s going to interfere with the way we play.”Some players have taken to social media with politically charged tweets and links to articles, but that has not stopped the team progress and production so far. Against Nebraska, the team blew away all expectations and showed how well OSU plays together.Meyer fully understands how easily a group can be separated by opposing viewpoints, especially in a time when the entire country seems to be two-sided. But, through the maturity and character of his players paired with the effort of his staff to keep things together, OSU is standing tall in a time of national turmoil.“Yeah, this is a pretty mature team in that regard. That’s something I always watch. I have guys around this program that’s their job, to monitor,” Meyer said. “When I talk about good guys, now, I have some guys that are like family in this team that they would tell me if something is going on. And I listen and I hear, and the heartbeat of our team is very solid right now. It’s not always perfect, but it’s very solid, but that’s a great question. And am I concerned about it, you’re damn right. That’s when you start having issues, but I also have great trust in the people that I’m listening to.” read more

The Drake University Bulldogs scored in overtime to get the upset bid over the Ohio State men’s soccer team Sunday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The second round tournament game saw the Bulldogs score a goal in the seventh minute of overtime to defeat the Buckeyes 1-0 and move to the third round.The winning goal was scored by midfielder Luke Gorczyca. The ball was kicked into the box and bounced off several players before Gorczyca poked it over OSU goalie Matt Lampson. “It was a scramble,” coach John Bluem said. “We failed to clear the ball, and the ball was bouncing awkwardly. They’re a team who was attacking, and when the ball is in the air, it’s easier to get in [the goal] than out.”  There were several OSU defenders who had a chance to clear the ball. Somehow the ball snuck into the net and set off a celebration among Drake players.The first half saw few scoring chances for both teams. Drake held the ball several times inside the box, but the OSU defense kept the ball out of the goal. OSU goalie Matt Lampson had a key save that helped keep the score at zero.   The Buckeyes had their first great opportunity to score on a free kick just outside the 18-yard box, but the ball floated just wide of the goal.  OSU turned up the pressure in the second half and dominated the ball, consistently keeping it on the Drake side of the field.OSU had several shots on goal but failed to make anything of the opportunities. “It just wasn’t our day; it wasn’t meant to be,” Bluem said. “I thought we had the majority of play in the second half, and I thought we were going to get one. Our inability to produce a goal eventually bit us, and a team like that hangs in there long enough, they catch a break.”   Drake caught a break on the last play and capitalized on its chance. Drake finished with nine shots, and OSU had 10, but the Bulldogs had the one they needed most. The Buckeyes end their season with a record of 12-5-4, a Big Ten regular season championship and a Big Ten tournament championship. “We had a great season and we accomplished a lot,” Bluem said. “Today we fell short of a dream on a day where things just didn’t go our way.” read more
