lady muskies snap losing streak in 15 point win

The Muskingum University Women’s Basketball team ended their 10 game losing streak beating rival Marietta 76-61 Wednesday night.

The Muskies were led offensively by Taylor Maurer who finished with 17 points in the contest. Maurer made seven of nine shots from the field, which included making three out of four shots from behind the three-point arc.

The ladies shot 41% from the field as a team and only missed three times from the free throw stripe. On the night the Muskies made 23 of their 26 free throws which was good for 88% in the contest.

The Muskies held a twelve point lead at halftime 41-29. The Pioneers desperately tried to claw their way back in the second half, but the Muskies used a large portion of their 24 points off 22 Marietta turnovers to keep hold of the lead, which never dipped under eight points.

With the win the Muskies improve to 4-14 overall and 2-9 in the OAC. The team also now sits just one game out of OAC Tournament contention with seven games remaining in the season.


Marty’s Midweek Pick Me Up 1/28/15

So for my second show this semester, I decided I wanted to do something a little bit different. I wanted to promote positive vibes  and feel good stories or moments from different people or news stories.

So this week, I brought in one of my favorite people and somebody I’ve known for almost my entire life. Father Mike Surufka, who is the current Vocations Director for the Franciscan Friars, is an extremely positive person and I talked with him about the city of Cleveland, where I’m from. The city of Cleveland is a wonderful place, even though it gets a bad rep as an urban environment.

Later I talked with him about his own hometown of Chicago, which has some similarities and differences to Cleveland, which we discussed.

I just want to thank Father Mike for being on my show, and I’m sure I’ll have him on again this semester!
