Throughout the year, Land-Grant Holy Land will be bringing you uncut audio primarily from Ohio State press conferences, but also from individual interview sessions.

Tuesday night, the Ohio State women’s basketball team welcomed in-state Ohio University to the Schottenstein Center. After 40 minutes, the Buckeyes record against the Athens, Ohio side improved to 23-1 after defeating the Bobcats 85-45.

In the win, guards Emma Shumate and Kaia Henderson had career nights. Shumate led all Buckeyes with 22 points (a career high), with six shots from beyond the arc. Henderson followed suit with a career-high six points on perfect shooting from the floor. This episode of Uncut features both guards plus head coach Kevin McGuff.

Coach McGuff discusses what guard Emma Shumate needs to do to get into bigger games, what he said to the team at halftime, already up 29 points, and looking ahead to the first conference game of the season against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Shumate and Henderson talk about their impressive evenings. Shumate talks about the support from her teammates, the boost in confidence from last season to this season and Henderson goes deeper into her perfect shooting performance.
