NFL draft Darron Lee picked No 20 overall by the New York

Former OSU linebacker Darron Lee returns an interception for a touchdown during a game against Northern Illinois on Sept. 19. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorFormer Ohio State linebacker Darron Lee was selected by the Jets with the No. 20 pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. Lee becomes the fifth Buckeye taken in the first round of this year’s draft. NFL.com’s draft analyst Mike Mayock ranked Lee as the fourth-best linebacker prospect.The local product of New Albany, Ohio, quickly became a dominant force for Urban Meyer’s “Silver Bullets.” Lee came into OSU as an athletic high school quarterback and safety recruit who was 6-foot-2 but hardly weighed 200 pounds. After sitting out his freshman season with a medical redshirt, Lee gained close to 30 pounds and started at outside linebacker in 2014.With his bigger frame to go along with his incredible athleticism and lightning-quick speed, Buckeye fans saw Lee transform into a Big Ten linebacker poised for the spotlight.In his first game with the Buckeyes, down 7-6 in the 2014 opener against Navy, Lee charged through the line to scoop up a fumble forced by defensive lineman Joey Bosa and took it the distance to give OSU a lead it would never relinquish.The 6-foot-2, 232-pound linebacker totaled 81 tackles his redshirt freshman season, including 16.5 tackles for loss and seven and a half sacks. Lee was named an Associated Press Freshman All-American and defensive MVP in OSU’s Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama after he had three tackles for loss and two sacks.In his redshirt sophomore campaign, Lee’s numbers went down slightly, but he still ended up with 66 tackles, 11 of which were for a loss, and four and a half sacks. His performance was enough for the AP to award the linebacker second-team All-American honors. Lee started 28 games for the Buckeyes in two seasons.Lee ran the fastest time of all linebacker prospects at the NFL combine in February (4.47), and finished as a top performer in the vertical jump at 35.5 feet.The Jets are scheduled to open up the 2016 regular season against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sep. 11 at 1 p.m. read more

Womens Basketball Ohio State wins secondstraight game defeating Cincinnati 6956

Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternThe Ohio State women’s basketball team gained its third victory of the season and second in a row after defeating the Cincinnati Bearcats 69-56 on Sunday.The Buckeyes got off to a hot start with a 15-4 lead midway through the first quarter, making six of seven from the field and three of four from 3-point range to start the game, one of which was a milestone 3 from redshirt senior guard Adreana Miller.Miller recorded her 1,000th career point on a 3 ball, helping Ohio State to the highest scoring quarter of the season, scoring 26 points to pair with a season high 85 percent shooting for a quarter.The Buckeyes carried their momentum into a 17-point lead at halftime powered by freshman forward Dorka Juhasz’s game-high 10 points and seven rebounds.The second half turned into a much more competitive affair as the Bearcats chipped away against Ohio State behind the strength of a team-high 14 points by junior guard Sam Rodgers, who played a game-high 37 minutes.The Buckeyes made many mental mistakes and had missed opportunities that allowed Cincinnati to get back into a game that head coach Kevin McGuff said should have been wrapped up earlier.“Good to kind of see us getting together and finish the game out,” McGuff said. “But it was disappointing. We played such a good first half and thought in the third quarter had chances to really stretch the lead out, and put a lot of game pressure on them and probably end it. But they kept playing hard and we kept making mental mistakes.”Cincinnati narrowed the lead to just three points in the second half when the Bearcats went on an 11-0 run. Comparably, Ohio State was unable to find its scoring touch, going more than five minutes without a basket.“I think the problems were like mental problems,” Juhasz said. “We missed lots of great shots, free throws, lots of turnovers. I think we have to reduce it because we will have tougher games.”While Ohio State’s 19 turnovers illustrated the mental breakdowns during the game, the team was able to stay resilient and end the game on a 10-0 run highlighted by two 3-point shots off the bench by junior guard Jensen Caretti.The Buckeyes (3-2) next face the Washington Huskies (4-3) on the road Wednesday. read more
