Tomorrow night, the Ohio State men's hockey program is making some history by hosting Pride Night. The Buckeyes are partnering with local and national tolerance programs as part of what should be an evening to remember.
Ohio State's disastrous January came to a close with yet another women's basketball loss, this time 62-53 to visiting Nebraska. Jordan Hooper poured in 28 points to lead the winning effort for the Cornhuskers, who sent the Buckeyes to a third straight loss.
