Lack of rebounding means losses for Ohio State womens basketball

When they are outrebounded, the Buckeyes are 3-13.The Buckeyes (14-14, 4-8) are currently ranked 10th in the Big Ten in rebounding margin, getting outrebounded by an average of 4.9 boards per game. That includes getting beat 57-33 on the boards in their most recent game, a 70-49 loss to No. 25 Michigan State Feb. 15, something coach Kevin McGuff said is unsatisfying.“We did not have the intensity or discipline that we had in the Penn State game,” McGuff said Tuesday, referencing his team’s performance on Feb. 9 when they outrebounded then No. 9 Penn State by a 40-38 margin. “It was disappointing.”During its current four-game losing streak, OSU has been outrebounded 187-144 and each game has been decided by 11 or more points.The deficiency in rebounding seems to fall largely on senior centers Ashley Adams and Darryce Moore, who played reduced minutes in the loss to Michigan State because of the emergence of redshirt-freshman center Lisa Blair. McGuff said Blair played more simply because she gave more effort.“She (Blair) seemed to be playing harder than the other ones,” McGuff said. “Whoever is playing the hardest is who I am going to play.”The rebounding effort is something everyone needs to improve on in order to be successful, redshirt-junior guard Amy Scullion said. Scullion is fifth on the team in total rebounds with 110.“That is definitely an area where I have to step up my game,” Scullion said Tuesday. “But rebounding is honestly a team effort so it has to be everyone.”When the Buckeyes have had success rebounding this season, it has typically come against smaller opponents. Their upcoming opponent No. 17 Nebraska (19-5, 9-3), lists their tallest player as 6-foot-5-inch freshman forward Allie Havers. In comparison, Blair is OSU’s tallest player at 6 feet 6 inches tall.The upcoming tilt against the Cornhuskers is a game junior guard Raven Ferguson said the Buckeyes need to win.“We have not beat them since they came into the Big Ten (in 2010),” Ferguson said Tuesday. “This is one of those games that you really want (to win).”Ferguson, who is the second on the team in scoring and third in rebounds, said despite their current losing streak, the feeling in the locker room is still upbeat.“We are still a confident team,” Ferguson said. “I still think we feel like we can win and we can beat anybody. We have seen spurts of that in past games.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to try to rebound their way out of their four-game skid against Nebraska Thursday at the Schottenstein Center. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. read more

Bafta voters chose as best live event the coverage of the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, rather than the BBC’s coverage of the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! was named best reality show for a series in which Holly Willoughby stood in for Ant McPartlin, who took time off after admitting to drink driving and addiction problems.Louis Theroux won his first Bafta since winning the Richard Dimbleby Award for presenting in 2002, this time for his Altered States documentary. Fiona Shaw won best supporting actress for her role as spy chief Carolyn Martens in Killing Eve, her first Bafta nomination. She called the job “probably the greatest pleasure of my life” and thankedWaller-Bridge for her “glass-shattering genius and wayward imagination”. Patrick Melrose, the Sky Atlantic drama based on the novels of Edward St Aubyn and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, beat A Very English Scandal in the best mini-series category and Cumberbatch beat Hugh Grant to best actor.“I’m used to being a bridesmaid, not the bride,” Cumberbatch said.But Ben Whishaw won best supporting actor for his performance in the latter as Norman Scott, lover of the Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe.Best single drama went to Killed By My Debt, a BBC Three drama based on the life of Jerome Rogers, a 20-year-old motorcycle courier who killed himself after two unpaid £65 traffic fines spiralled to £1,000. If the past 12 months have also seen women promoted to top presenting jobs at the BBC, the Bafta host, Graham Norton, was on hand to poke fun at the corporation’s gender pay gap.

We just need to catch up here,” she said.

Lucy Worsley won the specialist factual award for her documentary on the Suffragettes, and Baroness Bakewell was honoured with the Bafta Fellowship.Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment, the only Bafta category chosen by the public, went to the scene in Bodyguard where Keeley Hawes’ character, Home Secretary Julia Montague, was assassinated. A Doctor Who episode re-telling the story of Rosa Parks was a runner-up. But Hawes said: “I have noticed a change, I think we all have. In terms of content, so much more is being made and so much more is being made with women in mind. They’ve been hugely successful shows, which goes to show it’s what people want.” Ruth Wilson It was the year that women dominated television, from the first female Doctor Who to Killing Eve and the killing off of Keeley Hawes in Bodyguard.The Bafta TV awards stuck to the script, with Killing Eve winning best drama, accepted by its creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Bodyguard’s most heart-stopping scene being named the year’s must-see moment.Bafta bent its rules to allow its inclusion, as the drama category is usually restricted to shows that have their premiere in the UK and Killing Eve was first broadcast in the US.The best actress award went to Jodie Comer as Killing Eve’s assassin, beating her co-star Sandra Oh and Hawes.A tearful Comer dedicated the award to her grandmother, who died before the show began. “She never got to see Villanelle but she was the life and soul of everything when she was here. She used to say ‘You get it off me, you know.’ Nana Frances, you were absolutely right all along.” Jodie Comer, who starred in the hit TV series Killing Eve, won the award for best actress at the Bafta TV awards 2019Credit:Grant Pollard/Invision read more
