Womens Basketball Ohio State takes down Penn State 7873 in highscoring battle

Ohio State redshirt senior guard Carly Santoro (10) controls the ball in the Buckeyes’ game against Indiana on Jan. 10. Ohio State won 55-50. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorRivalry games are a constant. Regardless of the trajectory of a team, players will get fired up and ready to play when they see certain teams on their schedule. The Ohio State and Penn State women’s basketball teams are no exception.The Buckeyes beat Penn State 76-71 on Jan. 17 in overtime after coming back from down double digits. Since then, Ohio State has gone 2-3 while the Nittany Lions have dropped three of their past four games. While the teams have faced similar struggles since their past matchup, their rivalry was the only thing that mattered Wednesday night when Ohio State (10-11, 6-6 Big Ten) beat Penn State (10-12, 3-8 Big Ten) for a second time 78-73.Averaging more than 15 turnovers per game, ball control has been a point of emphasis for the Buckeyes as of late. With a Penn State team averaging 7.7 steals per game coming to town, the Nittany Lions stingy defense was a tough test for Ohio State.“Penn State is good,” Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff said. “They’re talented, they’re a hard matchup because they’ve got some really fast, athletic guards. They were beating us off the dribble early, one guarding the ball and one in the gaps to kind of help each other.”The Nittany Lions forced five turnovers in the first quarter, but a strong defensive performance gave Ohio State the 16-12 lead heading into the second quarter.Penn State searched all night for the 3-ball in an attempt to jump ahead of the Buckeyes, but poor shooting and strong pressure from Ohio State limited the Nittany Lions to just 5-of-19 from deep, with eight of their attempts coming in the first quarter. The Buckeyes connected on 5-of-13 of their attempts from 3.The teams continued going back and forth in the second quarter with neither gaining more than a three-point advantage. After a missed layup by Penn State with less than 30 seconds remaining, the Buckeyes quickly made their way back down the court and freshman forward Dorka Juhász found the basket as the buzzer sounded to tie things up 29-29 at halftime. Juhász notched a double-double, scoring 14 points and earning 11 rebounds.“I think [Dorka] is getting back closer to 100 percent, we needed her tonight, obviously,” McGuff said. “She’s a difference maker for us and it’s great to see her play so well.”Coming out of the locker room, the Buckeyes went on a quick 6-0 run to take the lead again 35-29, though it didn’t last as the Nittany Lions responded with a 6-2 run of their own to make it a two-point game.The Buckeyes later took a 49-39 lead with less than four minutes remaining in the third quarter, but Penn State refused to go away, finishing the quarter on a 12-2 run to tie things up heading into the fourth.Ohio State made its living at the free throw line on Wednesday, connecting on 25-of-32 attempts at the charity stripe and hitting 18-of-22 in the fourth quarter. The first eight points for the Buckeyes in the fourth quarter came from the free throw line, which wasn’t broken until a layup from redshirt senior guard Carmen Grande with 5:26 remaining. Adding 14 points and four assists, Grande said she knew fouls and free throws would be an important part of the game for the Buckeyes. “We were in the bonus early in the fourth quarter, so it was either get some layups or some free throws and just rack up points because we were having some trouble moving,” Grande said. The back and forth continued late into the fourth quarter, as neither team was able to put the other away. Penn State took a three-point lead, its largest of the game, with 3:30 remaining, but Ohio State quickly responded with a 3-pointer by Grande to tie things up. Freshman guard Janai Crooms stole the ball by deflecting a Penn State pass and Grande quickly found the basket at the other end to give Ohio State a 72-68 lead, but Penn State junior guard Jaida Travascio-Green responded with a 3-pointer to make it a one-point game. After a miss by Grande on the ensuing possession, Penn State junior guard Siyeh Frazier hit a jumper to take 73-72 with just 30 seconds remaining. Despite the earlier miss in crunch time, Grande came back and scored on a layup to give Ohio State the 74-73 lead.Penn State missed on its possession and the ball went out, and after a review possession was given to Ohio State and the Nittany Lions were forced to foul. Santoro was fouled twice in the final seconds and made all four free throws to make the final 78-73.Santoro finished with 20 points on 4-of-8 shooting, going 11-of-13 from the free throw line.Redshirt senior Makayla Waterman, who finished with a career-high 19 points and seven rebounds on 4-of-6 shooting, knocking down 10 of her 14 free throw attempts, said the team knew it would come down to its defense.“We knew that eventually it was going to come down to getting a couple stops in a row regardless if we’re scoring or not,” she said. “I put that in my mind and I think our whole team did, and we ended up getting a lot of good team stops at the end.The Buckeyes shot 49 percent from the field and tied a season high in points scored with 78. Four players reached double digits.Ohio State will stay home to take on Iowa at 4 p.m on Sunday. read more

We were the best team John Robertson

first_imgThe former Nottingham Forest left winger talked about how his club become one of the most important in English football in the late 70s and early 80sScottish winger John Robertson played with Nottingham Forest in the English First Division from 1970 to 1983, and again from 1985 to 1986.He was part of one of the most important teams in those years, winning the First Division once, the League Cup twice, the European Cup two times and the European Super Cup once.“We were the best team or the second-best team to Liverpool,” he recently told Tifo.“Maybe people did try to buy us, but we [usually] never found out about it. Cloughie kept that sort of thing secret. He wouldn’t be telling us.”Nottingham Forest v Leeds United - Sky Bet ChampionshipRemembering Brian Clough and his most memorable quotes Boro Tanchev – March 10, 2019 “Rome wasn’t built in a day. But I wasn’t on that particular job.”  – a quote from one of the most controversial and self-confident managers in English football, Brian Clough.“Most of it was instinct,” Robertson added.“Usually when I did think about [my game], when I did visualize how to beat a full-back, it was when I’d had a nightmare the previous week. When everything’s going great you don’t think too much, then suddenly you have a bad game.”“I used to worry about when I hadn’t played well. Martin O’Neill always used to say I was a nightmare, always asking him ‘Do you think I played well today? Was I any good?’ I was a bit insecure like that,” he commented.“I hated playing badly, and yet, because of the make-up of our team, we had some of our best games when I never had a kick.”last_img read more

Other times, it’s valuable to understand what people are thinking about. Ultimately, a combination of the two — data plus insight — produces the most promising path forward.

Genocide committed against Rohingyas says Holocaust Museum

first_img.The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has said there is compelling evidence that the Myanmar military committed ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Rohingya, the Muslim minority population of Myanmar.The Museum came to the conclusion based on: a careful analysis in consultation with an advisory group of atrocity experts; its own on-the-ground, original research that resulted in a joint report in 2017 with Fortify Rights; and information recently released in the Department of State’s documentation report and the United Nations Fact-Finding Mission.“The Burmese [Myanmar] military’s campaign against the Rohingya, especially the attacks of August 2017, have been deliberate, systematic, and widespread,” said Lee Feinstein, a member of the Museum’s governing Council and the Chairman of its Committee on Conscience, which advises the genocide prevention work of the Museum.“For the sake of the remnant community of Rohingya still in Burma and those threatened with being returned, we hope this announcement prods action,” Feinstein added.For decades, the Myanmar government has persecuted the Rohingya, stripping them of citizenship and subjecting them to waves of mass violence, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.In March 2015, the Museum issued a report warning that preconditions of genocide against the Rohingya were clearly evident. Other organisations also issued warnings that went unheeded. The Burmese government has consistently denied any wrongdoing.In August 2017, attacks on the Rohingya community by the Burmese military and others included mass killing, rape, torture, arson, arbitrary arrest and detention, and forced displacement of more than 700,000 people.The 2017 report issued by the Museum and Fortify Rights, “They Tried to Kill Us All,” documented these atrocities.“Our analysis concludes there is compelling evidence that Burmese authorities have intentionally sought to destroy the Rohingya people because of their ethnic and religious identity,” said Naomi Kikoler, Deputy Director of the Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide.“The Rohingya victims we work with feel abandoned. The world has turned a blind eye to their persecution – just as it did for victims of the Holocaust,” Kikoler said.The Museum’s reporting shows that other religious and ethnic communities in Burma, including the Kachin and Shan, are also at risk of mass atrocities at the hands of the Burmese military.In order to respond to crimes of this magnitude, Kikoler said, the Burmese government needs to be pressed by other states to undertake genuine efforts to prevent further atrocities; protect all vulnerable communities, including the Rohingya who remain in the country; cooperate with international investigations and assistance programs; hold perpetrators accountable in a credible and independent court; and undertake significant reforms to end discrimination against the Rohingya and restore their citizenship.A living memorial to the Holocaust, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum inspires leaders and citizens worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity.The Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide works to make the prevention of genocide and related crimes against humanity a national and international priority.The Museum’s far-reaching educational programs and global impact are made possible by generous donors.last_img read more
