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.

The Ohio State women’s basketball team started the first of 17 Big Ten conference games up north against the Michigan Wolverines. In a game where each team had respective runs, the Buckeyes didn’t have enough to overcome a strong home environment and the maize and blue. After the 69-60 defeat, head coach Kevin McGuff and guards Rikki Harris and Celeste Taylor spoke with Land-Grant Holy Land, who was live in Ann Arbor.

Coach McGuff discussed what did the Buckeyes in that day: Rebounding, turnovers and poor shooting from deep. Plus, his thoughts on the recent form of sophomore Cotie McMahon, who’s in a scoring slump over the last four games.

Harris and Taylor talk about the crowd noise of 8,000 in attendance, and that it didn’t impact their play in the defeat. Harris talks specifically about what the team needs to work on next and her own increased presence for the team of late, sharing her nickname of “bench starter.” Taylor talks playing against Michigan for the first time in her career, and her first time in the storied rivalry between the two teams.

That and more on the latest Land-Grant Uncut.
