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.

Following a two-game stint against teams lower in the Big Ten conference standings, the Buckeyes had the first of three big tests in a week when the Michigan State Spartans visited Columbus. The then 12-3 Spartans entered Sunday’s game flourishing under first-year Big Ten head coach Robyn Fralick and played tough against Ohio State. However, the Buckeyes came out on top 70-65.

Head coach Kevin McGuff, guard Rikki Harris, and forward Rebeka Mikulášiková spoke with the media following the game.

Up first is Coach McGuff. The Buckeyes’ program leader discussed the strong half-court defense that gave Ohio State the win, a strong performance by Harris off the bench, and another diverse scoring game by the scarlet and gray lineup. Then Harris is up, talking about the team’s defensive effort, the play of Mikulášiková, and shutting down the Michigan State guards.

Mikulášiková closes out media availability, discussing the half-court defense work the Buckeyes put in leading to the victory, Harris’ meaningful minutes off the bench, and returning from illness to make big plays in important moments.

That and more on the latest “Land-Grant Uncut.”
