Silver Bullet Points Celebrates Excellence

Written February 19th, 2014 by MaliBuckeye

This week we lost a musical legend and great Ohioan… so, this morning’s soundtrack should help you get through the middle of your workweek.

Silver Is Pretty Freaking Awesome

Buckeye 411

  • Net Success- Congrats to the Tennis-Bucks, who won this year’s NCAA Indoor Championship earlier this week. In doing so, Ohio State defeated top ranked Virginia (who hadn’t lost in 30+ matches) and perennial power Southern Cal. When you’re led by the B1G Athlete Of The Week, good things happen.
  • Decorated And Bona-fied- Tonight as the Buckeye hoopsters face off against Nerdwestern, Braxton Miller will be awarded his second straight silver football as the B1G’s top player. This brings Braxton up to 7 conference year end awards, most for any player according to OSU’s SID.
  • Mat Excellence- After falling to Minnesota in the National Duals, Ohio State rebounded with a solid beating of Oklahoma to pick up third in the tourney… although, I’d love to have seen them square off against second ranked Cornell.
  • Even More Awarding- The Aaron Craft Tour De Elegance continues, with Swoony C being a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award.
  • Proud Moment- Ignore the misspelling on this thing… I’d be totally down with an annual “Marcus Hall” award as an addition to the Gold Pants, for the MVP of The Game.  Thoughts??
  • Next- And this weekend in Indianapolis, six Buckeyes look to continue that legacy: Read More

Spotlight on: Ohio State Women’s Volleyball

The No. 15 Ohio State women’s volleyball team defeated No. 21 Purdue on Friday night 3-0. in West Lafayette.  Senior Mari Hole had 17 kills and 10 digs en route to her sixteenth double-double of the season.

In the first set, Purdue led 11-4 before the Buckeyes cut the lead to 11-9 after a 5 point run.  The set was tied at 14-14 before a few Purdue miscues allowed Ohio State to take a 17-15 lead. A 4 point run gave the Buckeyes a 21-17 lead, and an Emily Danks block would give them the set 25-19.

An early Boilermaker run in the second set was quelled by a few errors on their part that led to Ohio State taking a 7-6 lead.  Later in the set, a Hole kill gave the Buckeyes a 24-19 lead, but the Boilermakers fought back to tie it up. Eventually, the Buckeyes won 29-27 to go ahead 2-0.

The third set was all Ohio State. They took an early 10-2 lead before another 7-0 run gave them a 17-5 advantage.  A Danks service ace eventually gave the Buckeyes a 24-10 lead and a Kaitlyn Leary kill sealed it for them at 25-11.

The Buckeyes played again on Saturday, defeating Indiana in Bloomington 3-1.  Hole became the 20th Buckeye in the program’s history to notch 1,000 kills. She finished with 24 for the match. The win improved Ohio State’s record to 22-8 overall and 13-5 in the Big Ten.

Logan Stieber Exemplifies March Madness with Title Run

Written March 19th, 2012 by Joe Dexter

Logan Stieber is the first National Champion from Ohio State since J Jaggers repeated as champ in 2009

Logan Stieber just might have experienced the longest 11 seconds of his life on Saturday in the 133 lb National Championship Match against undefeated Jordan Oliver of Oklahoma State.

Holding onto a one point lead, the redshirt freshman saw an onslaught from who many considered the best wrestler in the country.

After escaping from bottom just 20 seconds into the third period, Oliver went on the offense, looking for numerous openings by dropping his knee to the mat and putting together several take down attempts with forward motion and hand control.

Down 4-3, everyone in the building had a feeling the defending champion would seize any small mistake made by the opposing redshirt freshman. Oliver had pinned all of his opponents on the way to the semi-finals, and cruised his way to finals mat with an 8-2 victory over Illinois’ B.J. Futrell.

For the first time though in two years, Oliver was in desperation mode.
