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.
It was a difficult end to the 2023 calendar, as the Ohio State women’s basketball team fell to the Michigan Wolverines in a lackluster display. Friday night, the Buckeyes turned the calendar to 2024, and left the bad form with the discarded 2023 pages, defeating the Northwestern Wildcats 90-60.
Following the 30-point victory, head coach Kevin McGuff, forward Eboni Walker and guard Diana Collins spoke with the media.
Up first was Coach McGuff, discussing what went right for Ohio State, namely taking care of the ball and limiting turnovers. Plus, the late illness scratch for starting forward Rebeka Mikulášiková forced a lineup change for the first time this season, with Walker taking the Slovakian’s place. McGuff talks about the key performance for Walker who scored 11 points, grabbed six rebounds and created six assists. Plus, no turnovers.
After McGuff was the duo of Walker and Collins. Walker talked about her mentality of doing whatever it is the team needs in a game, stepping in the lineup when necessary. Also, the improved performance after the defeat to the Wolverines. Collins, who played limited minutes as a second half substitution, talked about her 10 points in only 13 minutes on the court.
That and more on the latest Land-Grant Uncut.
