OSU Lantern – With a player like Ohio State’s Evan Turner on the court, there may be a tendency for the opposition to divert all of its attention in his direction. Unfortunately for Jon Diebler, however, that has not been the case. Since the start of Big Ten play, the Buckeye junior has found that, even with Turner on the court, teams are not exactly willing to let him run free.

Sluggish start a distant memory for Ohio State hockey team

OSU Lantern – Consistency and composure have been key for the resurgence of the men’s hockey team.
