Mumps a Buckeyes awarded 6-seed, to face Dayton threat despite vaccinations Eric Seger Sports editor email@example.com
Brandon Merriman Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org With 21 cases of mumps reported at and around Ohio State, students are being advised that a vaccination will not completely guard them from infection. Jose Rodriguez, spokesman for Columbus Public Health, said Saturday 21 cases had been reported as of Friday. “Seventeen are OSU students, one is a staff member, one is a family member, and two have community links to OSU students,” Rodriguez said. Mumps is a viral infection of the salivary glands, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. It can spread through coughing, sneezing or contact with saliva or mucus. Those affected by mumps might have swollen and tender salivary glands under the ears or jaw on the side of the face, fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, loss of appetite and inflammation of the testicles in men,

Ohio State said it was ready to go up against some fresh blood and break away from the rugged Big Ten for the NCAA Tournament. Little did the team know, though, its first opponent in the Big Dance houses a former teammate, in addition to a descendent of Thad Matta’s extensive coaching tree roaming the sidelines. Meet Ohio State’s first matchup of the 2014 NCAA Tournament: the University of Dayton. The Buckeyes are set to take on the Flyers (23-10, 10-6) in Buffalo, N.Y., Thursday, after they were awarded a No. 6 seed in the tournament’s South region Sunday. For Matta, playing a school located a mere 72 miles away has its benefits. “For this team, it’s a great thing,” Matta said Sunday. “I like that. Because there won’t need to be a wake up call, there won’t need to be a, ‘Who is this? Who are they? What conference are they in? I haven’t heard of that guy,’ or anything like that. So I like that from that perspective.” After falling to top-seeded Michigan, 72-69, in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament Saturday, the Buckeyes (25-9, 12-9) were given lower than a No. 2 seed in the tournament for the first time in five seasons. Headed by coach Archie Miller — who spent two seasons as an assistant under Matta before heading to Arizona with his older brother, Sean — the Flyers are led by former Buckeye and redshirt-junior Jordan Sibert, who transferred to Dayton following the 2011-12 season. Sibert, an outside sharpshooter, leads the Flyers with 12.5 points per game while shooting 43.9 percent from beyond the arc. He was a member of the same recruiting class as OSU senior guards Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr., who both said they haven’t talked to him recently and are just excited to start the NCAA Tournament. “We’re excited, obviously, this is the time of year we want to play for and we’re in the tournament so got a great game against Dayton coming up and we’re excited about it,” Craft said Sunday. Smith Jr. agreed, but said if he put himself in Sibert’s shoes, he would be plenty excited to play against his former teammates. “At the same time, we’re both in the same boat

Coach Thad Matta and players high five each other during a timeout. OSU lost to Michigan, 72-69, in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament March 15 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. — you lose, you go home,” Smith Jr. said Sunday. “So I think we’re both going to be jacked up for the same purposes.” Sibert left Columbus for Dayton because he wasn’t getting the playing time he wanted — he played just 481 minutes in 49 games over his two seasons at OSU. “When he left he said, ‘Look. I want to play a lot.’ And he’s definitely getting to do that, and he’s honestly having a great career there,” Matta said of Sibert. “I’m one of those guys that says, ‘Hey, as long as everybody’s happy in terms of where they are and what they’re doing, I’m happy for them.’” The Buckeyes enter the second round matchup after winning nine of their last 13 games, but failed to make the Big Ten Conference Tournament Championship game for the first time in six years after the loss to Michigan Saturday in Indianapolis. Although it was a little different watching the Selection Show at home instead of after playing for the championship, junior forward Sam Thompson said the mindset didn’t change too much. “The location was different but I don’t think the seeding was too much different,” Thompson said
Sunday. “We know whatever seed we get, wherever we’re placed in the NCAA Tournament, there’s no such thing as an easy game, there’s no such thing as an easy opponent.” In what is now his 10th season at the helm of the men’s basketball program, coach Thad Matta had led the Buckeyes to a victory in their first game of the NCAA Tournament six of the seven times they have played. The lone loss was a 74-72 double overtime loss to Siena in 2009. OSU was on probation in Matta’s first season — 2004-05 — and won the National Invitational Tournament following the 2007-08 season. Initially, Matta said he was excited to see Dayton make the tournament because of Miller — then he realized it was his team that was matched up with Miller’s. “I wanted Arch to get in the NCAA Tournament. Then I was kinda like, ‘Huh, here we go,’” Matta said. “But I think from the perspective, I’m so happy for him in terms of getting in … the longer you do this, the more inner workings there are that it works itself out.” Tipoff Thursday between the Buckeyes and Flyers is yet to be determined.
Leaving Gateway a murky battle for Gooeyz owners Nearly $9K of property stolen from OSU team Danielle Seamon Arts editor email@example.com
From sewage leakage to an air conditioning system riddled with problems, a husband-and-wife team with Ohio State ties described its first small business venture in the South Campus Gateway as one in which the best of times became the worst of times. Spouses and Gooeyz co-founders Lanne and Dave Bennett set up shop in the alley of the Gateway plaza in August 2010, welcoming college students to campus with a taste of home in the form of cheesy, greasy comfort food. Lanne Bennett graduated from OSU with a degree in food business management and was a varsity cheerleader, and Dave Bennett also attended OSU. In November, however, Gooeyz closed its doors, taking its giant skillet and leaving a tweet thanking patrons for “all of the Cheezy Love.” Gooeyz later reopened in a partnership with Woodland’s Backyard at 668 Grandview Ave. However, the announcement of the restaurant’s departure from the South Campus Gateway came less than two weeks after Charlie Bear: Land of Dance, a dance club that was located inside the Gateway’s alley at 1562 N. High St., confirmed it was moving to Olentangy River Road, and about two months before athletic shoe and apparel store Finish Line announced its closing at 1624 N. High St. in the Gateway. All of those announcements were preceded by Kildare’s Irish Pub, which was located at 1576 N. High St., leaving the South Campus Gateway last summer. The Gateway is a subtenant of Campus Partners, which is a private nonprofit corporation that works on community planning in the campus area alongside OSU and the city of Columbus. Lanne Bennett said she couldn’t speak for all of the businesses of the South Campus Gateway, but she attributed the recent business blackout of the alleyway and the surrounding area, as well as the unexplained, sudden departures, to Gateway’s general management being uncooperative with business owners. “The overall takeaway of why we closed is just the physical plant of the building and the deficiencies in there,” Lanne Bennett said. “We couldn’t afford to stay there.” Lanne Bennett tells the South Campus Gateway’s story as the tale of two cities, where “the Eddie George’s, the Panera corner … is doing very well, is very active right by the (Ohio) Union, and the alley is (on) its own.” She said that story is one other Gateway

The South Campus Gateway where Gooeyz opened in August 2010. The restaurant left in November 2013 after numerous problems with Campus Partners and the South Campus Gateway. business owners are afraid to recount for fear of the Gateway’s management. “It’s just everyone’s scared, no one will talk. And why shouldn’t they be? I mean, it’s a big ol’ monster coming after you,” Lanne Bennett said. Amanda Hoffsis, president of Campus Partners, gave a statement in an email when asked to comment on Lanne and Dave Bennett’s experience at Gateway. “Gooeyz turned over their space to us on Monday, Dec. 2, 2013,” Hoffsis said. “We are currently working to ensure obligations, based on the terms of their contract, are fulfilled by both parties.” Heating, ventilation, air conditioning issues In January 2010, Lanne and Dave Bennett began to inquire about the space at 1554 N. High St., a unit nestled between the Gateway Film Center and the Ohio Art League that was formerly owned by Greek and Mediterranean restaurant The Happy Greek. The South Campus Gateway was 5 years old at that point, and Lanne Bennett said she and her husband were told by the management, which was Columbus Commercial Real Estate of CBRE Group at the time, the space was fairly new, a turnkey restaurant where the two could come in and launch Gooeyz after signing the lease. Dave and Lanne Bennett signed a three-year lease that May, agreeing to take everything “as is” and projecting to open Gooeyz’s doors Aug. 1, 2010. But upon firing up the power and electricity of the
space, something Lanne Bennett said they could not do until after signing the lease, problems with the HVAC units’ mechanics became apparent. “We got into this space and there was so much stuff that was broken and didn’t work that they knew about but didn’t tell us about, especially the HVAC units,” Lanne Bennett said. One of the couple’s first service calls to repair one of the two HVAC units revealed the unit was disconnected because it had “catastrophically failed” before Lanne and Dave Bennett took possession. “(Management) knew about (the HVAC unit being disconnected), but they never told us that. So it became our responsibility when we took it over, and (management) said, ‘Well, you’re just going to have to deal with it.’ So we dealt with it,” Lanne Bennett said. The issues with the HVAC in addition to the GFI breaker, which is a device that protects against electrical shock in high-risk areas, such as restrooms and basements, not being installed “up to code” postponed Gooeyz’s opening by nine days to Aug. 10, 2010, Lanne Bennett said. Sewage leaks Michigan met OSU at Ohio Stadium Nov. 27, 2010, for The Game, resulting in a crowded campus and a “crazy, busy day” at Gooeyz, Lanne Bennett recalled.

Karlie Frank Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org The Ohio State women’s rowing team had approximately $8,925 worth of personal belongings stolen from its vans at the Dayton Boat Club in Moraine, Ohio, earlier this month. The theft was reported March 1 at about 1:15 p.m. to the Moraine Police Department. OSU rowing coach Andy Teitelbaum told police four of OSU’s five vans had been broken into and 19 team members had items stolen from them during practice, according to the Moraine Police Department report. OSU athletics spokesman Dan Wallenberg referred The Lantern, on behalf of the athletics department, the coaches and team members, to police for comment. Teitelbaum told police the team members were away from the vans from 10 a.m. to noon while they were practicing, according to the report. Two officers checked the surrounding area and dumpsters for any discarded stolen items or other evidence, but nothing was found. No suspects had been identified at the time the report was filed.

campus Speculation looms over replacements for vacated bookstores FranciS Pellicciaro Lantern reporter email@example.com The empty spaces left by three former High Street bookstores might soon have new occupants. Buckeye Books, formerly located at 2060 N. High St. in the Ohio Stater Shopping Center, closed during Fall Semester. Sue Clark, manager of the Ohio Stater, which owns the space Buckeye Books occupied, said she couldn’t disclose what might take that spot while discussions are taking place. “Every time I talk to someone, it’s normally a restaurant,” Clark said. Clark said she expects a new business will fill the space by either summer or Fall Semester 2014. Jill Kanney, a first-year in biomedical engineering, said she’d be happy to see a restaurant move in.
“I’d like to see a restaurant (in one of the vacant spots) because with books, everything’s going toward online. It’s more efficient for buying books to just go to one place like Barnes and Noble,” Kanney said. Other students, though, said they’d rather have another textbook store occupy the space. “I’d prefer to see another bookstore in (Buckeye Books’ former spot) over a restaurant. I went to (Buckeye Books) a couple times,” said Holly Rankin, a third-year in economics. “It would show a little more diversity in this rough economy. We have enough restaurants.” Rankin added she’d also like to see a kitchen appliance or electronics store in one of the closed spots. College Town, located at 1770 N. High St., vacated its space Jan. 31. Plans are in the works for a business to take over the space it left, said Brian Wade, the director of property management at RS Garek Associates Ltd., the real estate firm that owns the building.
Gooeyz from 1A During the game, Dave Bennett said sewage, originating from the Gateway Film Center, spilled on customers — something he said happened nearly 10 times during Gooeyz’s term at the Gateway. “With the leak and the theater, (management) would send maintenance down after they just ruined some people’s experience,” Lanne Bennett said. “I mean, I’m probably never going back to a place that that happened to me (at). (Management) would send people over and clean up, but it never got fixed.” Dave Bennett said Gateway’s management addressed and cleaned up any messes caused by the leakage. Lanne Bennett said, however, the problem was a recurring one and resulted in many free, compensated meals to smooth over customers’ experiences. Lack of advertising, signage and foot trafﬁc On paper, Lanne Bennett said, the location of South Campus Gateway looked “amazing.” Sitting between campus, where a portion of the university’s roughly 57,400 Columbus campus students are housed in residence halls, and OSU’s off-campus sector, where many of the rest reside, the Gateway’s website states its stretch on High Street sees foot traffic of about 9,000 per day across its 225,000 square feet that run parallel to OSU’s campus.
“At this point, we are in negotiations with a business. If we can come to terms, I would guess that we might have a contract in four weeks,” Wade said in an email Feb. 24. Wade said in an email Wednesday there were no updates on the situation. University Book Exchange, located at 10 E. 15th Ave., closed Jan. 31. A representative from Pella Company, the real estate firm that owns the space, said the company could not provide comment because legal matters regarding tenants are kept private. Ahmed Al-akash, a second-year in chemistry, said he hopes another textbook store moves into one of the empty spaces to help keep prices low. “I’d like to see more bookstores (in the vacant spots) because it’d be better for competition. It’d give students more options,” he said. Karlie Frank contributed to this article.
During Gooeyz’s first year as a business during football season in fall 2010 and throughout 2011, Lanne Bennett said business was “great.” “Business was on point,” she said. “I’m the finance person and I had it modeled, and you don’t really know until you open your doors about how many tickets per day, how many customers you’re going to have … and 2011 was great, it really was.” But then, she said, something changed. “Then 2012 rolls around, and, just something, the dynamics — it started in about April of 2012 is when everything really just started changing for whatever reason,” Lanne Bennett said. It was then, she said, traffic began to dissipate. While Gooeyz had been open to serve a breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night crowd, that weaned into a two-shift restaurant, open only for dinner and late-night meals during weekdays. “And in a time like that, I always look inward and go, ‘OK, what are we doing wrong?’” Dave Bennett said. “I go and start looking at our reviews … and say, ‘OK, people are having a good experience, so it’s not a lack of our draw.’” Since day one of scoping out the South Campus Gateway space, Lanne Bennett said, management promised the business wayfinding signage, and Dave Bennett recalled seeing a set of plans for a “huge sign” on High Street to direct people to the variety of tenants in the Gateway’s alleyway.

Other business owners recalled hearing similar promises. Nate DeMars, founder and CEO of Pursuit, a suit store located at 1572 N. High St., said his overall experience with management has been good, but the Gateway had been promising a “special sign” on High Street since before his suit company began its term about two and a half years ago, he said. “A lot of that talk started before we opened, and I know it has kind of stalled and not happened,” DeMars said. Elizabeth Lessner, Columbus Food League owner and founder and owner of the Torpedo Room inside the Gateway Film Center, which opened in January, called the Gateway alleyway “a challenging location.” “There’s very little visibility in that alley from High Street, which is really too bad,” Lessner said. “There’s planters and trees and all sorts of things, and if you’re driving down High Street and you blink your eye, you’ll just miss it.” Lanne and Dave Bennett gave management additional suggestions on how to advertise the alleyway tenants, Lanne Bennett said, including a sign along a wall facing Ninth Avenue and High Street, a building the South Campus Gateway owns that currently houses OSU’s Technology Commercialization Office, and buying space on a billboard along State Route 315. “(Management) said, ‘Well, Lanne, go find that
information out (how much the billboards cost) and you can come back to us,’” Lanne Bennett said. “Well, I’m sorry, I have a business to run, I have a restaurant to run. I don’t need to figure out your strategy for a project.” The ideas for advertising have yet to come to fruition, she said. “You know, the fact that, here it is, four years later and there is no signage on High Street yet for any of those alley tenants is baffling to me,” Lanne Bennett said. Leaving the Gateway In July 2013, Gooeyz was nearing the end of its lease and the HVAC system was still proving problematic. New management, Colliers International in partnership with South Campus Gateway LLC, had taken over the South Campus Gateway, and Lanne Bennett said she and Dave approached its representatives, saying they would consider keeping Gooeyz in the space if management assisted them in fixing the units. Upon request, management claimed it did not have a record of past service calls for the HVAC units before Gooeyz moved in, Dave Bennett said. So after a bit of digging, Dave Bennett approached management with a paper trail of service calls for Gooeyz’s HVAC system, he said. Visit thelantern.com for the rest of this story.

Cheerleaders run onto the court before the game. OSU lost to Michigan, 72-69, in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament March 15 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
according to the CDC. The website also says there is no specific treatment for mumps, but it is usually gone in a week or two. Rodriguez said notices have been issued to health departments across the country because many potential carriers left Columbus for spring break. “We’re hopeful that students will come back healthy and safe, but because there is a (15 to 25 day) incubation period, we know there is a possibility that we’re going to see new cases,” Rodriguez said. Rodriguez said those who have received two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine still have a 10 to 20 percent chance of being infected. Rodriguez called the group of cases in the outbreak “highly vaccinated,” meaning most of the people had their vaccinations. “Even within folks that are vaccinated, they are still at risk of illness,” Rodriguez said. OSU students are not required to get an MMR vaccination unless it is a specific requirement for their program, as is the case for some medical programs, according to the Student Health Services website. Students interested in a vaccination are able to receive one through health services after a screening. Rodriguez said students who have not been vaccinated should seek vaccination immediately, but he said every student needs to practice “common sense” and take precautions. “If you’re sick, you need to be isolated,” Rodriguez said. “You need to wash your hands, cover your coughs and sneezes, and especially stay home if you’re sick … don’t share personal utensils, cigarettes, drinks.” Rodriguez said one-third of those infected with mumps are just carriers who don’t show symptoms of the disease. “(Carriers) don’t get a chance to isolate,” Rodriguez said. He said those infected at OSU have been encouraged to isolate themselves. OSU spokeswoman Liz Cook said in an email Friday OSU has a plan to defend students from mumps. “In anticipation of classes resuming and students’ return to campus, the university will be working proactively — broadening its communications efforts and heightening awareness to keep students informed, lessen the risk of infection through proper hygiene practices and, in the event of illness, where to get medical treatment,” Cook said.
Theft from 1A One of the team members reported at about 9 p.m. that day her stolen credit card had been used earlier in the day at a gas station in Englewood, Ohio, for a fuel transaction totaling $73. Moraine Police referred the victim to the Englewood Police Department, but there was no video surveillance at the fuel pumps, according to the police report.
Cook said OSU is working with Columbus Public Health and the CDC to investigate the cases. Rodriguez said OSU has been sending samples to the CDC for testing. “It does take a little longer (to send them to the CDC) … but accuracy in testing is critical and really important to any investigation like this,” Rodriguez said. The university sent an official statement and answers to some frequently asked questions in Sunday’s Buckeye Net News newsletter, which Cook said is sent to all students. She said similar messages would be sent to faculty and staff. OSU also plans to leverage its health-related social media and deliver posters to on- and off-campus locations to encourage healthy habits, Cook said. There was recently a mumps outbreak at Fordham University in New York, with 13 suspected cases reported as of Feb. 21, but Rodriguez said there is no evidence of a connection to the OSU outbreak. Rodriguez said epidemiologists will say when the outbreak is over in a public statement. The outbreak will be considered over once there are only one or two cases in the community and that number holds for a certain number of weeks, Rodriguez said. For now, the most Columbus Public Health can do is connect as many cases as possible, Rodriguez said. “We are … contacting every (infected person) immediately so we can start gathering information as soon as we can, and start putting the puzzle together,” Rodriguez said. Haiwei Su, a fourth-year in applied mathematics, said he is focusing on staying healthy. “You’re pretty safe as long as you don’t have exposure,” Su said. “I wash my hands … just focus on my own hygiene.” Stephen Zhou, a third-year in marketing, said there was concern about the outbreak while he was in Florida on a Buck-I-SERV trip through OSU. “Our adviser (on the trip) said to pay attention to symptoms while we were there,” Zhou said. “Luckily, nobody had any symptoms.” Robert Maupin, a fourth-year in logistics, said he had cold-like symptoms over the weekend, which worried him because he knew about the outbreak. “But it ended up being just a cold,” Maupin said. Maupin said he is not vaccinated for mumps, but he isn’t concerned about catching it. “I probably wouldn’t turn down a vaccine if I was offered it, though,” Maupin said.
The stolen items included at least four iPads, 12 cell phones, two laptops, seven backpacks and seven wallets. The vans had the drivers’ door locks punched, but there was no other criminal damage, according to the report. A Moraine Police representative who responded to the incident could not be reached for comment.

studentvoice Colleges should increase online presence to charm potential students LEE MCCLORY Lantern reporter email@example.com Ah, the days of college applications, when no one knew where they were going to end up, just that they would likely end up somewhere. For many, it was the first time anyone heard real numbers as to how much college cost. We have a general idea of expense, but no numbers until that first college we fall in love with gives us their tuition costs and makes our eyes pop out of our heads. On Feb. 20, Jon Boeckenstedt, associate vice president for enrollment management and marketing at DePaul University in Chicago, published an editorial in The Washington Post, with an idea that could change the whole situation. Boeckenstedt proposed a new way to find your ideal college: instead of relying on old fashioned letters, college visits and word of mouth, what if colleges had Yelp reviews, stats on Google about how much college on average cost (not just a sticker price, but a better estimate of how much you would pay at any one college) and social media just played a larger role in the college admissions process in general? Yet while a lot of this information is important, it’s already available online. It’s just not clear, nor is it that quick to find. Putting this information into a single database run by a tech giant would help make searching for that perfect college far easier. Ohio State has posted under Undergraduate Admissions in a page titled “Quick Facts” that the average aid package given to incoming freshmen is $13,070, but not specifying if that was for in- or out-of-state students. The percent of different ethnicities of studentsis posted on that same page as is the percent of males to females. A lot of that information would help a potential OSU student figure out how they might succeed here. But it’s not enough.
We need to know a real financial aid number. The $13,070 financial aid package might be skewed by the amount of domestic out-ofstate students (21.2 percent) and the amount of students who get a full ride (not specified). More specific averages such as the average in-state financial aid package, the percent of students with full scholarships from in- and out-of-state, and the percent of students on campus with Office of Diversity and Inclusion scholarships would help parents estimate better. Some of these numbers can be found online, but only through careful searching. Sometimes people don’t realize they will do well at a different school other than the one they chose. For example, first semester I met a girl from out of state. By the end of that semester, she’d decided to move back to her home state, not because of her grades or because of money or because she didn’t have friends, but because she missed her family. That’s something she might have been able to realize had she gotten more reviews of OSU from out-of-state students. Another problem with the current system is that people need to travel to campus to get a feel for it. Changing the system to a virtual tour, with testimonials from real OSU students, would help a lot of students from out of state make better decisions about college, and be able to do it more effectively and with less expense. A good feel for OSU might be easier to get through a coherent database full of financial aid numbers, virtual tours and testimonials. However, to really attract the best students for their school, OSU needs to acknowledge the other things they might not otherwise want to stress: the huge amount of students, the number of sororities and fraternities, the amount of drinking that goes on here and the crowds that descend on OSU for gamedays. The best way to do it? Let students write their own reviews. We love this school, but we know the highlights and the lowlights. To attract more students, the best thing the university can do for itself is let us advertise for them. It would be real, it would be positive and it would be the best way to attract students who will enjoy OSU.

Palestinians met with injustice First legal drink will be worth the wait
Letter to the editor:
As my fellow high school Advanced Placement government classmates discussed their weekend rager, I remember subtly rolling my eyes as I listened to their humiliating stories of being intoxicated. Since enrolling at college, I’ve had roommates stumble back to our dorm drunkenly at 3 a.m. on a Thursday, watched an inebriated freshman uncontrollably soil himself in the lobby of Sloopy’s SHAY TROTTER Diner on Halloween and cringed at firstname.lastname@example.org the photos posted on Facebook by people too drunk to remember what they did the night before. If I hadn’t already decided to remain sober until my 21st birthday, that would have been enough to convince me to wait. As an incoming freshman at Ohio State, I knew that alcoholinduced fun wasn’t for me. While I was able to find other students like myself, it wasn’t long before our substance-free hangouts became fewer and far between. Luckily, I was able to become friends with others like myself who didn’t need a drink to have a good time. For me, drinking before you are of legal age is like opening up your Christmas presents in July. Why would I want to indulge too early and ruin the special occasion? I couldn’t justify having my first drink at some random house party like many other college students. It’s too mundane and something I likely wouldn’t even remember later. I want it to be on my 21st birthday, when it’s supposed to matter. I guess I always figured I will have the rest of my life to drink, so why rush it? My decision to remain sober means I will actually have something to look forward to on this milestone birthday. When I take my first sip of alcohol on March 23, I feel it’ll be worth the wait.
One of the arguments frequently made against the campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel, is that it poses a threat to academic freedom. This fails to acknowledge that one of the casualties of Israel’s decades-long illegal occupation of Palestinian land is precisely what critics of BDS proclaim to defend: academic freedom and the right to education. Israel’s military rule over Palestinians, described as ‘apartheid’ by South African veteran activists, entails an ethnicallybased discrimination against the original inhabitants of the Palestinian lands occupied by Israel in 1967. Since 1967, Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza have been subject to daily acts of military violence, encroachment on their land by lawless Israeli settlers, and the construction of massive, prison-like structures such as the separation wall. Looking at threats to higher education is one way of grasping the urgency of ending Israel’s occupation of the West Banks and Gaza. Consider the case of Palestine’s leading research university, Birzeit University, located near the major West Bank city of Ramallah. The university cannot be approached without going through checkpoints manned by Israeli soldiers, where students are interrogated, searched and frequently subjected to violence and humiliation. The Israeli military has on multiple occasions made incursions onto the Birzeit campus itself, made arrests there, and even used blockades to close down the entire university for extended periods. Because they do not hold actual citizenship, have no state, and hence no passports, Palestinian scholars or students who seek to study, lecture or teach outside the territories can only hope for travel documents, issued at the Israeli government’s discretion. Even if granted travel documents, they live in fear they will ultimately be denied permission to exit the territories, the internal borders of which are under Israeli control. Similar obstacles are imposed on foreign faculty or exchange visitors wishing to collaborate with Palestinian universities. The uncertainty of whether or not they will be granted entry into the occupied territories is a constant threat, with the consequence that normal cross-national collaboration cannot be maintained.

Almost 200 people took part in a demonstration held outside the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Dec. 29, 2008, protesting the military operation in the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators held signs reading ‘Free Gaza’ and ‘Free Palestine’ and waved Palestinian flags. The BDS campaign, founded in 2005 by multiple Palestinian civil society groups, is currently finding increasing support around the world. Following decades of failed peace negotiations, BDS might emerge as the most effective tool in ending the human rights abuses suffered by Palestinians, including the right to education and academic freedom. This brings me back to the accusation made, in a recent statement made by Ohio State, that BDS is “the antithesis to academic freedom.” The statement, issued in response to the decision of the American Studies Association to endorse BDS, fails to acknowledge the brutal suppression of academic freedom which takes place on a daily basis in the occupied territories. In contrast, BDS does not entail a violation of the academic freedom of individuals, nor does it mean barring them from their right to education. The call for an academic boycott of
Israel is a call for the responsible exercise of academic freedom, one of those freedoms being the right to choose on ethical grounds which institutions and governments with which to be partnered. By withdrawing from voluntarily collaboration at the institutional level, BDS sends a strong message to the Israeli state, and to the world, that academic communities will not stand idly by as fellow students and faculty are deprived of their basic freedoms.

Jillian Michaels to share knowledge on healthy living sTaCiE JaCkson Senior Lantern reporter email@example.com With the seemingly endless cold weather hovering in Columbus this winter, it’s easy to opt out of going to the gym and choose the couch instead. Jillian Michaels, a trainer on reality series “The Biggest Loser,” is set to bring her motivational live tour, titled “Maximize Your Life,” to Columbus Thursday at 8 p.m. to encourage physical and emotional well-being. At the show, Michaels is set to promote goal-setting, to “unleash your full potential and discover your best self,” according to Jillian Michaels’ website. “It really is for anybody that in one facet of their life or another feels stuck, unfulfilled or a lack of meaning and purpose,” Michaels said in an interview with The Lantern. Michaels said the show is designed to help people build not just a better body, but a happier and healthier life. “Whether you’re a kid just getting out of college going, ‘OK, you know, now what the hell am I supposed to do? I’ve been in school my entire life, and the job, the marketplace is crazy, now what am I supposed to do?’ Or you could be a 40-year-old having a mid-life crisis going, ‘I hate my job, I’m unhappy, I follow all of the rules, I follow all of steps and I’m completely unfulfilled, now what?’” she said. The event is first about engaging the audience in a conversational dialogue, Michaels said. “So, it’s a visual show of course, but at the same time. I put them through a series of exercises, not physical but more emotional and psychological where they have to evaluate what they’ve been doing and what’s been going on previously and currently in order to get to the bottom of why they behave in self-destructive ways,” Michaels said. “And then from there, we have the ability to essentially rebuild our behavior and our patterns so they are life-affirming and work for us instead of against us.” Michaels said the way she does this is through a Q-and-A session, which will be built into the show. When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle in college, Michaels said it is most important to find balance. “It really is looking at your life and saying, ‘OK, I have all of these different aspects and components of my life that require attention,’ (which are) your physical health, your emotional health, your schoolwork, which is essentially your profession, the effort and energy you put into your relationships with your friends and your family and learning how to … divide your time up amongst these things,” she said. Michaels said the balancing act isn’t always obvious or constant, based on the needs of a particular circumstance or situation, and it might fluctuate throughout the course of a person’s everyday life.

Jillian michaels, trainer from ‘The Biggest Loser,’ is set to speak at the palace Theatre Thursday. “But the reality is that now is the time to start figuring out that balance in your life so that you’ll have it when you get a little bit older and you start adding on more like being a mom, being a wife or husband, and so on,” Michaels said. Rick Smith, a second-year in business, is in the process of earning his personal training license and said he would probably attend the tour. “From the work I’ve seen of hers, I think it would be helpful for a lot of people,” Smith said. Grace Herbener, a third-year in international studies, has done some of Michaels’ workouts in the past and has found them effective.
“I think she is really fit and I strive to be like her physically,” Herbener said. “I didn’t know about her tour … but I think I would enjoy it because I am interested in mind and body health.” The Maximize Your Life tour is set to come to the Palace Theatre, located at 34 W. Broad St. Tickets start at $25 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster. JOIN THE CONVERSATION
J.K. Rowling provides more basis for Harry Potter world in new fan installment sHELBY LUm Photo editor firstname.lastname@example.org “Zooming In” is a weekly series in which Photo editor Shelby Lum provides her insight on pop culture. The doors of Hogwarts reopened, tears for Fred Weasley dried, and Ron and Hermione were finally together. All was right in the wizarding world at the close of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” For a decade, the books took over the bedrooms of second-grade children and adults alike and then suddenly, the world of Muggles mourned the loss of Harry Potter — and author J.K. Rowling likely did too, not wanting the franchise to end either. Friday, the British author released the first part of “History of the Quidditch World Cup” on pottermore.com, a website dedicated to Harry Potter fans, adding unknown back stories for the characters as well as allowing visitors to take a look back at the books in an interactive way. In one of her longest installments on the site, she has penned rules and regulations for the Quidditch World Cup as well as added several infamous cups. A dragon cannot be used as a mascot or a warmer for the winning cup, and no physical changes may be made to the referee (even if he or she asks for it), some of the rules read. The history doesn’t include any of the beloved characters from her seven Harry Potter books, but still has the same tongue-in-cheek style of writing fans have grown to love. “The Quidditch World Cup is simultaneously the most exhilarating sporting event on earth and a logistical nightmare for the host nation,” Rowling wrote in the piece. Are these facts pertinent to the understanding of the original story? No, but for Rowling (and for most Harry Potter lovers), those characters never ended, and neither did the wizarding world she lovingly created. What she has done is created a never-ending world with pottermore.com, and the new Quidditch World Cup rules are just another section of that universe we all met through Harry Potter and his cupboard under the stairs. While the lightning-bolt hero made no appearances in “History of the Quidditch World Cup,” the original stories intertwine when the “Reappearance of the Dark Mark” makes it into the Quidditch annals. Listed as one of the most recent infamous tournaments, it is the tournament Harry Potter attended in the fourth book.

The ICWQC (International Confederations of Wizards Quidditch Committee) censured the Ministry of Magic heavily after event, judging that security arrangements had been inadequate given the known existence of a violent Pure-blood tendency in the United Kingdom.” The wand that casted that dark mark: Harry Potter’s. The preliminary rules and infamous tournaments are just the first part of the “History of the Quidditch World Cup” and part two is set to release on pottermore.com Friday. “Frankly, if I wanted to, I could keep writing stories until Harry is a senior citizen, but I don’t know how many people would actually want to read about a 65-year-old Harry still at Hogwarts playing bingo with Ron and Hermione,” Rowling said after the completion of the books.

Ohio State alumnus Chukwuemeka Onyejekwe went from practicing law in New York to raising more than $20,000 for his first official album. On March 4, the artist, who goes by Mekka Don, released his debut album “The Dream Goes On,” which chronicles his life story and aims to inspire others to follow their dreams. “The album represents my story, my family’s perspective and paying my dues. It’s also about my perspective on how to be successful. I want it to be inspirational for people to fight for a dream and have the passion and to get there,” he said. Onyejekwe said the title song would make the greatest connection with listeners. “‘The Dream Goes On,’ I expect to get a lot of reactions, particularly because of the quality and production of it, and also the story and lyrics of it is real and people can relate to it,” Onyejekwe said. Prior to his new album, Onyejekwe released “Let’s Go (O-H-I-O),” a single that was influenced by former OSU President E. Gordon Gee and was played during the 2012 home football games. The following season, Onyejekwe then wrote the song “Juice,” based on football coach Urban Meyers’ mantra — “bring the juice” — which became an official OSU licensed product and was also played at home football games this past season. From a young age, music was a passion for Onyejekwe. His older sister Nwando Olayiwola, a doctor in San Francisco, said via email that Onyejekwe “has had a very sincere and diverse passion for music since he was a child. This included singing and emulating musicians, dancing and playing the drums in a band with his older brother and cousin.” At a certain point, music became too big of an interest to be covered up, Onyejekwe said. Before hip-hop became a full-time gig for Onyejekwe, he received a political science degree from OSU, where his parents worked as professors. He then went on to work as an attorney for a firm that dealt with corporate litigation, Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York City, earning $200,000 yearly. Only a year into his law career, Onyejekwe said he built up courage to walk over to his boss’s office — describing it as “a movie scene” — to let him know he had decided to leave the firm to pursue music. “He said, ‘One day I hope you’re one of our clients,’ and I was so grateful at that response. I walked back to my office, packed my stuff and it was a wrap.”

Columbus coffee shop competitive with Boston brews mark spigos Lantern reporter firstname.lastname@example.org A few weeks ago, The Lantern reported on the “underrated” Columbus coffee scene. Shortly thereafter, I had the opportunity to the travel to Boston, which was recently voted the 17th best “coffee city” in America by “Travel + Leisure” magazine, a list in which Columbus was not a part. As a self-proclaimed coffee enthusiast, the trip seemed like a great chance to test the merits of an up-and-coming coffee city like Columbus against those of an established one. It also meant I could fully justify going out for coffee more than I already do. Overall, the two beverages were very comparable in freshness, taste and quality. The major difference between Stauf’s and Equal Exchange can be seen in their respective atmospheres. While the Columbus spot has the feel of a first rate neighborhood coffee shop, the Boston shop’s character seems trendier, with a considerably more urban vibe. Stauf’s Coffee Roasters (Columbus, Ohio) Stauf’s has been a mainstay in the Columbus coffee scene since it opened its doors in 1988. Located at 1277 Grandview Ave., the coffee shop has made its mission to achieve the finest cup of coffee possible. A quality cup of coffee begins with a quality coffee bean. Stauf’s sources its Arabica beans from more than 20 countries around the globe, roasting them to order in their gas-fired roasters. With such a variety of fine, flavorful blends to choose from, I usually order a French Press; at just $3.95, it’s a very affordable way to enjoy four cups of freshly brewed coffee. However, during this visit, I wanted to allow the baristas a chance to show off their skills. So, I ordered a latte — a classic beverage that is a great indicator of both the quality of ingredients used,
as well as the level of craftsmanship displayed by a café’s employees. At Stauf’s, a regular 16-ounce latte with a double shot of espresso goes for $3.40. Served in a white ceramic mug, my beverage was a gorgeous, creamy brown color. The frothy surface was adorned with a “latte leaf,” the quintessential example of simple, tastefully-done latte art. Though there was plenty of seating available within the cavernous interior of Stauf’s, I chose to take my drink on the outdoor patio — a great place to experience the adorable dogs of Grandview. With both my appetite for atmosphere and presentation satisfied, I found myself equally pleased with the quality of my beverage. The latte was extremely wellcrafted. With a healthy portion of foam on top, the taste was balanced and smooth with minimal bitterness. Between the friendliness of the staff, the relaxed, pleasant atmosphere and the satisfying product, Stauf’s Coffee Roasters is a microcosm of the increasingly versatile coffee scene across Columbus. Whether it’s used as a hangout spot, a site for a job interview, or a place to study, one thing always remains true about Stauf’s: It’s a wonderful place to grab a really good cup of coffee. Stauf’s Coffee Roasters is open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 6:30 to midnight Fridays, 7 to midnight Saturdays, and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sundays. Grade: A Equal Exchange Café (Boston) Located at 226 Causeway St. in Boston, in the shadow of TD Garden — the home of the Boston Celtics and Bruins — Equal Exchange Café has a very different from than Stauf’s. At about a quarter of the size of Stauf’s, the Boston coffee shop’s walls are painted several shades of green — giving it a vibrant and chic atmosphere.

Rapper from 5A A year or so later, Onyejekwe said he connected with freshmen year hall-mate Viswant Korrapati, now his manager and business partner, to pursue music full time. At first, the two partners didn’t know how to go about financing “The Dream Goes On” until a friend suggested Indiegogo.com. “We asked ourselves how we were going to pay for this thing, and that’s when we started hearing about crowdfunding. Basically a friend of ours advocated for crowdfunding,” Korrapati said. Indiegogo.com is an online platform for artists to seek funds from

In the spirit of equality and for the sake of comparison, I chose to order another latte. Whereas Stauf’s regular size was 16 ounces, Equal Exchange’s was just 12 ounces. What’s more is that it was still 10 cents more expensive, at $3.50. The latte was served in an “Ecotainer,” a disposable cup made from fully renewable resources. The beverage itself was nearly identical in color to the
the public for their project. The artist doesn’t receive the funds in full, as a certain percentage goes to the website for its usage. The contributors receive special perks from the artists for their donations. “Mekka was trying to convince me of it. I was scared. I was like, ‘I don’t want us to only raise $500.’ There’s a risk in crowdfunding because everything is public. I knew we had fans but I didn’t know how much money they would invest in us,” Korrapati said. Their campaign on Indiegogo.com lasted from Jan. 20 to Feb. 24 with an initial goal of $12,500, which they exceeded by raising $21,040 “within the first two weeks of the campaign,” Onyejekwe said.
Stauf’s latte, but was decorated with a more complex ornamental heart design. Because of the smaller size of Equal Exchange, there weren’t any tables available. There was, however, a small, brightly colored nook with bench seating and reading material located in the back corner of the shop. So, I settled down on a pillow and drank my Boston-made latte — which, though pricey, was excellent. Made with what was clearly very fresh espresso, the drink was slightly stronger and less frothy than the latte at Stauf’s. It was worth every penny. Grade: A-
Korrapati said the budget was allocated to the making of the album, marketing and music videos. “We are hoping and we believe that, all that work we put into and the fact that we were able to raise $20,000, the album will sell, that we will get booked for performances, music will be licensed, and all our other products will sell,” Korrapati said. Onyejekwe said he knew the risks of quitting his law career to pursue music, but his passion is what kept him assure of his decision. “I knew this is what I wanted to do, and it was all about going after it and doing it,” Onyejekwe said. “ It was the best decision I’ve ever made.”

Junior guard Shannon Scott (3) fights to get a shot off during a game against Michigan March 15 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. OSU lost, 72-69.
INDIANAPOLIS — Down by as many as 16 points early against Michigan (25-8, 17-4) in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals, it was like nothing had changed for the Ohio State men’s basketball team. One day after completing an 18-point comeback against Nebraska in the final 13:45 of the game, OSU allowed Michigan to come out hot and seemingly shut the door on the Buckeyes early. Although OSU (25-9, 12-9) came close to pulling out another victory — even taking the lead with less than three minutes to play — the Wolverines hit their shots down the stretch and pulled out a narrow 72-69 win. So what went wrong for those first few minutes? Why do the Buckeyes continue to put themselves in deep holes? “It starts from the beginning of the game, and you don’t know why guys aren’t ready to go,” senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. said after the loss to Michigan. “I don’t know why that is and it’s something I’m obviously not used to. As a senior, that’s leadership — we need to try and make sure guys are ready to go when we tipoff … Those are situations where it’s tough and you come over and talk to the coaches and say ‘We don’t have it right now, we don’t have the juice,’ and coaches can’t do anything about that, and that’s on us out there. “I can’t think about the whole team and I’ve just got to fight and hope a spark will get lit.” Coach Thad Matta said against the

A winless team was exactly what the Buckeyes need. Returning from a road trip to Oregon after losing three of four games — two losses to Oregon and one to Oregon State — the Buckeyes played host to the Siena Saints (0-17, 0-0) in their home opener. After giving up numerous runs on errors in its Friday win, the Ohio State’s baseball team (11-6, 0-0) shored up their defense and had strong outings from the bullpen to win two more games Saturday against Siena to complete the sweep. Freshman pitcher Zach Farmer started on the bump in the second game for the Buckeyes and did enough to claim the victory going 5.1 innings and gave up just one run on seven hits. The Buckeye offense gave him confidence early by putting four runs on in the second. After a leadoff double by sophomore first baseman Zach Ratcliff, redshirtsophomore infielder Ryan Leffel drove him in with a single. Later in the inning, with the bases loaded, junior catcher Aaron Gretz scored on a passed ball by Saints sophomore pitcher Bryan Goossens. With men on second and

OSU won, 8-5. third and one out, sophomore infielder Troy Kuhn drove both of them in with a shot to center, but was thrown out trying to round it into a triple. With the score 4-1 in the top of the sixth, the Saints were threatening with the bases loaded and only one out. The Buckeyes turned to freshman pitcher
Travis Lakins and he responded in a big way turning a double play to get out of the inning with no damage. The bullpen didn’t allow a hit for the rest of the game and the offense added three more runs in the eighth to seal the 7-1 victory for the Buckeyes. “I’m always looking for a real good
pitch to hit,” Kuhn said. “But really I have the same swing every time … it was a pretty good weekend.” Senior pitcher Greg Greve was given the ball to start the first game and found himself in some early trouble giving up a two-out RBI double to Saints senior outfielder Andres Ortiz. The Buckeye bats had Greve’s back, though, plating two on a single by redshirt-junior first baseman Josh Dezse in the bottom half of the frame. The Saints tied things up in the fourth on an RBI single from freshman catcher Patrick Ortland and then both teams traded runs in the fifth to keep the tie going into the sixth inning. Unfortunately for the Saints, Buckeye freshman relief pitcher Tanner Tully came in and dealt smoke for the final four innings. Tully pitched perfectly retiring all 12 batters he faced. “I was just throwing strikes, trying to get batters out,” Tully said after the last game Saturday. “I keep letting them hit it, but they kept hitting it to our guys.” Meanwhile, the Buckeye offense finally woke up in the eighth, taking the lead for good. They scored four runs capitalized by a two RBI triple

Buckeyes aim to fix free throw struggles in Big Dance daniel rogers Asst. sports editor email@example.com The whistle blows, the official bounces the ball and every eye in the arena is focused on a single player. Standing at the free throw line with the game on the line, even the simplest things can go wrong. Players spend years perfecting the technique of the shot, just to be placed under the spotlight and wither. In the Ohio State men’s basketball team’s contest against Michigan Saturday in the Big Ten Tournament semifinal, the pressure finally caught up to the Buckeyes. “We knew it was going to bite us in the butt sooner or later, and unfortunately it happened today,” junior guard Shannon Scott said after the loss. On the season, OSU (25-9, 12-9) shot 68.9 percent from the free throw line, 210th out of 351 teams in Division I. But in Big Ten Tournament wins against Purdue and Nebraska, the Buckeyes’ struggles at the line weren’t enough to lose them the games.

OSU lost, 72-69. minutes of play against the Boilermakers and Cornhuskers, despite shooting less than 65 percent in each of the games. Against the Wolverines though, the problems at the free throw line were exposed. Senior guard Aaron
Craft missed two free throws with 2:27 remaining that would have put OSU in the lead, and junior forward LaQuinton Ross missed one of two with 44 seconds remaining. One more point could have led to a less desperate situation for OSU,
which would have only needed two points to tie instead of having to rely on a 3-pointer that slipped out of Craft’s hands right before the buzzer. Senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr.

sports Indianapolis from 1B Cornhuskers, the Buckeyes were completely to blame for allowing themselves to fall behind. But against Michigan, it was hard to stop the Wolverines from shooting so well. “I was not happy yesterday (against Nebraska),” Matta said. “I think today the way they (Michigan) came out and played that first 13 minutes was … I would venture to say they would be up by double digits on most anybody in college basketball.” Junior guard Shannon Scott, whose career-high tying 18 points was a major part of the comeback, said it’s hard to stop a team that shoots so well for long stretches. “Michigan hit some crazy shots,” Scott said. “I’ve never seen shots like that happen honestly. I feel like we have a great defense, we played our defense, they just hit some great shots. We can’t really stop that.” Junior forward LaQuinton Ross — who finished with a game-high 19 points in the loss to the Wolverines — was quick to add the hot shooting didn’t last the whole night, as OSU found its way back into the game. “But we fought back — we fought back and got in the game. That’s what we’ve been doing this whole tournament and it came down to the end, couple of plays that we didn’t make and that’s on us,” Ross said. Adversity spurs growth though, and that is
Fix from 1B said free throws are starting to become worrisome for OSU, but that the team managed to stay in the game was impressive. “Free throws are obviously big and this is where you see how big they can become,” Smith Jr. said. “All-in-all, even with us missing free throws down the stretch, we still had a chance to win the game. We were one rebound away, they miss a free throw and get the ball back, that’s a dagger. In the end, that takes the momentum away from our team and it just turns everything in their favor. But we start making those free throws and we have a chance to ice the game and we wouldn’t even be in this situation.” Craft said he wasn’t happy with his own performance down the stretch. “I’m disappointed in myself, obviously,” Craft said. “Came down the stretch and didn’t make some free throws, missed a couple shots that our team needed us to make.” Less than a week before, against Michigan
something Smith Jr. said he fully expects to come out of the way the Buckeyes battled back. “Once we get these (little things) corrected, I’d be afraid of us,” Smith Jr. said. “We’re definitely going to be a better team because of it. We take that with the type of fight this team has, and the effort we’re giving to dig ourselves out of holes, I think that’ll be something good for us.” Junior forward Sam Thompson said part of allowing themselves to get down was lacking the mentality to keep fighting. “We got a little soft, we started feeling sorry for ourselves, we started pointing the finger instead of looking in the mirror and hunkering down, coming together and being a tough basketball team,” Thompson said. “That’s who we are, we’re a tough basketball team. We’re a team that’s not going to give up, that’s not going to allow one play to affect the next and that’s what we need to be the next few weeks.” OSU, a six seed in the NCAA Tournament, is scheduled to take on No. 11-seeded Dayton (23-10, 10-6) in the second round of the tournament Thursday in Buffalo, N.Y. “Every game this tournament, we dug ourselves into a hole, we’ve got to stop doing that. Once we get that in our heads, it will be all right,” Scott said.
State in Columbus, OSU struggled at the line again late, only hitting two of its eight attempts at the line in the final two minutes. But like the first two rounds of the Big Ten Tournament, OSU managed to squeak by with a win despite shooting poorly at the line. Smith Jr. said the free throw shooting has turned into a consistent problem late in games, but if OSU can fix the problem, it will become a dangerous squad. “We’re not making free throws down the stretch,” Smith Jr. said. “Those are things that we can correct and once we get (those) corrected, I’d be afraid of us. We’re definitely going to be a better team because of it. We take that with the type of fight this team has, and the effort we’re going to dig ourselves out of holes, I think that’ll be something good for us.” The No. 6-seeded Buckeyes are scheduled to take on the Dayton Flyers (23-10, 10-6) Thursday in Buffalo, N.Y. in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Sweep from 1B from freshman outfielder Ronnie Dawson to give Tully and the Buckeyes a 7-3 win. After the impressive outings from Lakins and Tully, coach Greg Beals said he began to think about bumping them up to the starting rotation. “Our relief pitchers did a great job today, no question about that … Tully and Lakins have been really good,” Beals said. “Two freshmen that are getting good experience, those guys are fun to watch develop. We have to figure out whether our relievers are going to be starters.” Tully and Lakins looked like starters Saturday. Tully threw 51 pitches during his four innings of work, while Lakins showed poise getting out of a bases-loaded jam. Tully said his time as a starter will come later, but for now he is just trying to help the team. “I don’t really feel like a freshman anymore. Just
trying to go out there and throw,” Tully said. “Maybe as I get older (I’ll start).” Beyond pitching, Beals is still looking for improvement on the offensive side of the ball. While putting up big numbers in a single inning is nice, he said he wants to see his batters put up a fight every at-bat, no matter what the situation is. “We need to find that fire starter every inning and get ourselves going. This has been very indicative of how we’ve been all spring … big inning then a bunch of zeros,” Beals said after the games Saturday. “We give our opponents’ pitching too easy of innings … we have to chase those guys.” The Buckeyes are scheduled to return to action Tuesday against Akron at Nick Swisher Field at Bill Davis Stadium. First pitch is set www.thelantern.com for 5:05 p.m.
