Thad Matta Ohio State look to rebound against Indiana

Thad Matta stands on the sidelines during a game against Minnesota. OSU won, 64-46.Credit: Ritika Shah / Asst. photo editorWhen a college basketball game is closing on the the final minutes of play, most coaches would say each possession becomes increasingly more important.The value of making the correct read, protecting the ball, making free throws and getting good shots goes up in such a way that if a team fails to do those things, they are likely to end up on the wrong side of the scoreboard when the buzzer sounds.Ohio State coach Thad Matta said Saturday doing the little things — like converting free throws, keeping proper spacing on offense and defending to his team’s capability — is what ultimately led to its 65-63 loss Thursday night against Penn State.Even junior guard Shannon Scott knew something was off that night in State College, Pa., mentioning that at times when the Buckeyes (22-7, 9-7, fourth in the Big Ten) were trying to decipher the Nittany Lions’ zone defense, not everyone was on the same page.“We’re not seeing it all the way the whole time. There’s been possessions where three players are running one play, and two players are running a different play,” Scott said Saturday. “We’ve gotta have a better focus on our offense, especially against the zone.”When Matta was told that Scott said the team sometimes has trouble getting into the right sets offensively — even though the team is 29 games into the season — he said it shows how OSU’s mind wasn’t in the right place against Penn State.“That just tells you the concentration wasn’t there. And a lot of that is on Shannon and (senior guard) Aaron (Craft). We were going way too quick the other night,” Matta said. “We had a guy stop and tie his shoe twice during the game, and we didn’t start our offense until there was 22 seconds on the clock. We had wasted possessions on those two possessions.”The No. 22 Buckeyes are likely going to need to have those little things corrected when they are set to travel to Bloomington, Ind., to take on Indiana (16-12, 6-9, eighth in the Big Ten). The Hoosiers won the Big Ten regular season title last year, beating the Buckeyes by a game in the standings.OSU’s second loss this season to Penn State this year was not exactly what the Buckeyes had planned, Scott said, but there’s no time to worry about that with a quick turnaround to take on Indiana.“It cuts us deep, losing another game. But we can’t really dwell on it. It’s too late in the season to start dwelling on our mistakes,” Scott said. “It’s not time for that right now. We gotta all be men and move on from that and make the most of our next games.”Despite falling to Penn State Thursday, OSU would still be the fourth seed in the Big Ten Tournament — and get a first-round bye — if the season ended today, because Iowa also lost Thursday, on the road at Indiana.The Hoosiers are led by sophomore guard Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, who is currently fourth in the Big Ten in scoring, averaging 17.6 points per game.“Ferrell is obviously one of the top point guards in the country and (freshman forward Noah) Vonleh is a monster,” Matta said of the Hoosiers two leading scorers. “Just a well-coached basketball team, very good basketball team and it’s another Big Ten war for us.”Despite their record, Indiana isn’t going to be an easy opponent, Scott said.“We know none of our games are going to get easier. Indiana’s a great team,” Scott said. “Their record doesn’t show how good they really are, so we all know that coming into the game. We’re going to be prepared for them and hopefully be ready to play.”The loss to Penn State came on the heels of six wins in seven games for OSU, but Matta said he’s not concerned about his team’s confidence level.“It’s funny because with this quick turnaround, I’m not even worried about confidence,” Matta said. “Our focus is quite honestly, ‘Hey that’s behind us. We can’t change that. Here’s what we gotta do to try to win the basketball game’ … In terms of being 25 games or whatever we are into the season, come on — you gotta man up. You gotta carry your weight around here and get the job done.”Tipoff is set for 4 p.m. Sunday at Assembly Hall. read more

Houston Law Professors Among Those Petitioning Against Kavanaugh Confirmation

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /06:08 Some Houston law professors are among more than 1,700 across the country who have signed a letter urging Senators not to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.The letter was published in The New York Times on Wednesday. According to The Times, the letter will be presented to the Senate today.This comes as Senators are reviewing the FBI’s supplemental background check about allegations of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court nominee. The Senate is expected to vote on his confirmation in the coming days.The letter says: “We are law professors who teach, research and write about the judicial institutions of this country. Many of us appear in state and federal court, and our work means that we will continue to do so, including before the United States Supreme Court. We regret that we feel compelled to write to you, our Senators, to provide our views that at the Senate hearings on Sept. 27, Judge Brett Kavanaugh displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land.”The full letter with attorney’s signatures:View Fullscreen In the audio above, we hear from several law professors from Houston and Texas who have signed the letter.For Ellen Marrus of the University of Houston Law Center, she says for her it came down to ethics. She says she also signed another letter going before the Senate today specifically from women who teach law across the country.Her fellow UH Law colleague, Blake Hudson, also signed the letter in The New York Times. He says while the law professors who signed might have differing opinions on a variety of issues, they all agreed that Kavanaugh’s temperament was unfit for the highest court in the land.Emily Albrink Hartigan is with St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio. She says she wants Senators to find another nominee to the Supreme Court.And law professor William Forbath from the University of Texas at Austin School of Law says he signed the letter against Kavanaugh’s confirmation because he thinks the judge can’t move beyond partisan politics.

How One Tiny School District In Rural West Texas Is Making It

first_img Sally Beauvais / Marfa Public RadioAlmost half of the students who attend Valentine ISD transferred in from nearby districts. X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharecenter_img 00:00 /00:00 It’s early yet in the 2019 state legislative session, but lawmakers have already named school finance reform as a top priority at the Texas Capitol this go-round.Cities and suburbs can dominate the conversation when it comes to policymaking, but this story brings us to a tiny West Texas town — population 130. There’s no gas station, and you have to drive 30 miles to find a grocery store, but there is a school. And somehow, year after year, it outperforms the state in academics.Junior high gym class is a good place to start if you want to understand why the students at Valentine ISD earn high marks every year.A group of kids huddle up at the edge of the basketball court, watching a classmate gear up to take a free throw. The stakes are higher than normal — if she misses, everyone has to run sprints.“If you don’t make it, we’re not friends anymore!” one student yells.She sinks the shot, to cheers of, “looks like we’re staying friends!” And then, “Well…we probably would have stayed friends anyways.”7th grader Claudia Figueroa agrees. “It’s, like, such a small school community type thing,” she says. “You can’t stay mad at anyone for very long.”Figueroa has two other classmates in her grade at Valentine ISD — Ed and Fabiola. “The days when someone is gone, you can tell,” she says. “At first, me and Fabiola are like, ‘Yes! We don’t have Ed today.’ And later when it’s all quiet, we’re like, ‘Where’s Ed?’”Students in Valentine spend all of their time together. It’s the first secret ingredient making the school so successful: everyone gets along, because they have to. History teacher and coach Rebekah Oñate is thankful for that, because it means she doesn’t have to spend time policing classroom behavior. She can just focus on the job.Sally Beauvais / Marfa Public RadioRebekah Oñate is the youngest teacher at Valentine ISD. Most of her colleagues are old enough to retire.“I’ve always admired my teachers,” Oñate says. “They were such a big part of my life in school. And my coaches even more so.”Oñate’s the youngest teacher at Valentine ISD, fresh out of college in El Paso, where she studied criminal justice and political science. She says Valentine is a great place to learn the ins and outs of teaching, but she’s still adjusting to small town life.“I miss the constant hum of traffic, or lights…stuff like that. I don’t like to leave the house at night. It is extremely dark and I am a scaredy cat,” she says.Valentine is really isolated. There’s no gas station, no stores. The school’s the heartbeat of the community. To get a Coke in town, you go to the vending machine in the schoolyard.But being in the middle of nowhere actually works to the school’s advantage in some ways. Currently, Valentine ISD has 39 students, and 10 teachers. That can mean teachers are responsible for curricula across many grade levels, but Superintendent Debbie Engle says the high student-teacher ratio is another reason the students do so well at school. Especially when it comes to state tests.“Every time, you know, I’m tickled to death when our scores come out and I think, ‘Oh my gosh, I hope we can do that again next year,’” says Engle. “Because I understand how little it would take to flip it.”The flipside is, if just a couple of kids do poorly on their STAAR tests, the district’s scores will come down. If the school falls out of the Texas Education Agency’s good graces, Engle worries they would be a prime target for consolidation with a neighboring district.Sally Beauvais / Marfa Public Radio39 students attend Valentine ISD, from 1st through 12th grade. The district has no juniors or kindergarteners.But for now, the kids are doing well. The district earned the equivalent of an A in the TEA’s new A-F grading system in 2018, among 39 other single-district campuses in Texas.“I’ve had people say that Valentine is the best private education public funds can buy,” says Engle.Almost half of Valentine ISD’s students actually transferred in from nearby districts, where Engle says they weren’t getting along with the other kids, or weren’t getting close enough instruction.Valentine native Angelica Urias moved back to town recently from Pecos, in part so her daughter could attend the school.“When we came back her teacher was Mrs. Porras. And she was my kindergarten teacher,” says Urias. “So the confidence there was a relief — not having to worry about bullying, or anything like that. It was awesome.”That’s the third thing Valentine has going for it. With the exception of Coach Oñate, the school has a veteran teaching staff. Even if they haven’t been in Valentine the whole time, most of the teachers have decades of experience.Including Irma Porras. She’s been in the business for 32 years. “I always thought I’d be teaching until I was 80,” she says. “I’m really going to miss these kids.”Sally Beauvais / Marfa Public RadioSecond and third graders in Irma Porras’s class at Valentine ISD cap a Friday afternoon watching Charlotte’s Web.While her first and second graders watch Charlotte’s Web, she discloses that she’ll be retiring at the end of the year. She’s getting older, and she wants to spend more time with family in El Paso.“For better or for worse, we can all be replaced. I’m not irreplaceable,” she says, laughing.But Porras may be more valuable than she realizes. According to Superintendent Engle, 80% of Valentine ISD’s teachers are old enough to retire. She says a handful of them are what she calls “retire re-hires,” former educators who come out of retirement to teach again.Engle worries about future recruitment. Valentine can’t pay as well as surrounding districts, and it takes a certain kind of person to live in the middle of nowhere.But so far, she says, she’s been lucky.This piece was originally published on http://marfapublicradio.org/ Listenlast_img read more

Weaving stories into art

first_imgIf you ask them, people will give you varied definitions of what feminism means to them. For some it is raising their voice for equality for women, for some it is a fight for removal of patriarchy and for some it is resistance to any sort of inequality.  Baaraan Ijlal, a visual artist, sees feminism as a part of people’s struggle, for her feminism takes a form of visual expression on her canvas. Weaving stories of people that affect her and intricately painting them on her canvas is Ijlal’s form of expression against all strands of inequality she sees around irrespective of people’s sex or sexuality. This is what she explained to us at a discussion on canvas writing at the Oxford Bookstore. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The discussion was organised in association with Apne Aap Women Wordwide in continuation of their series of Feminism Beyond Boundaries. Art for Ijlal is very personal, she tries to bring out people’s pain through her paintings. She says that her pieces are a reaction to the ongoing struggle of people she sees around her. Describing a painting of hers where a red-haired passenger is sitting on the backseat of a bicycle, she says that the met the owner of that bicycle in a ghetto. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix She says that the boy-faced man with long hair which slightly curled at the end was sitting sipping his tea and staring intently at his bicycle which had a tightly screwed red tin box tied to the rear end. When Ijlal asked him about his story, he said that the bicycle was given to him by his lover as a parting gift. The emotions attached to that object and the inner struggle of the cyclist struck her where he symbolically reserved a seat for his lover at the end with the red tin box and she  drew out that emotion her canvas and filled in the colours. Ijlal says her canvas is an instrument to fight for justice. When asked more she explained, ‘I try to fight for justice because I have seen fairness. I have seen my parents always stand up for justice no matter what.’ And the lessons she has grown up with find expression in the works she creates on canvas. Ijlal owes the narrative style of her work to the early influences of writers such as Manto, Albert Camus, Garcia Marquez and Faiz Ahmad Faiz. These and many other early influences have inspired this artist to create a space where she can tell her stories, and stories of others, on canvas, where language is not a barrier, where possibilities are endless and where cultural and social taboos are challenged constantly.last_img read more
