Pioneer Perfection: Men’s Basketball Undefeated

The Pioneers needed to keep things clean against a winless Wilmington, and they did.

With an 89 to 78 victory over the Wilmington College Quakers, the Men’s Basketball team moves to 5-0 in the Ohio Athletic Conference, and a 10-0 record overall.  This comes as the Pioneers gather more Top 25 votes in the D3hoops.com Poll.

Freshman Tyler Hammond is really stealing the show, as the Freshman from Cleveland, OH scored 22 points.  That’s his second game in a row with 20 or more points.  Junior Trevor Halter added 10 more points, and in a surprise, eight rebounds.  That’s more than junior Kevin Knab, who usually leads the team in rebounds.  He ended the night with 12 points and seven rebounds.

The Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams head out for a West Coast swing after the Christmas holiday, then return to face the University of Mount Union and Heidelberg University in the new year.

Check out the full Ohio Athletic Conference standings below.  Should be an interesting week when Marietta takes on both Capital University and John Carroll University in the same week.

Cheap Sports For All Sorts

As prices rise for all the fun things in life, sometimes it’s nice to have a Student ID.  And this post highlights several of those great opportunities.  Major teams in Ohio and Pennsylvania are advertising great pricing on tickets to students.  We’ll highlight some of them today.

Browns Excursion for Marietta College Students

College Union Board is taking a busload of students up to Cleveland Browns Stadium on October 3 for their division match-up against the Cincinnati Bengals.  A $20 ticket can be purchased in the Student Activities office in Andrews Hall.  The ticket will get you on a charter bus up to the game, a ticket to the game itself, and transportation back to Marietta when the game is complete.  Bus leaves at 9 AM on the 3rd.

This is a great opportunity for MC students to go see an NFL game for a very low price.  Instead of paying anywhere between $30 and $50 in gas for your car and anywhere between $40 to $60 for a ticket, you are only paying $20.  Take advantage while you can.  Tickets are going fast.

98.5 Provides Diverse Listening Opportunities

It’s Tuesday night. Maybe you’re working on homework and need a little background music. Maybe you’re avoiding homework and need a distraction. Your iTunes playlist is overplayed and Pandora can’t seem to get your musical style just right. So what do you do? Perhaps turning to the good old radio is the way to go.

Senior Danette Curiale, of Cleveland, Ohio, and junior Alissa Bambarger, of Conneaut, Ohio, recently started broadcasting their own hip-hop radio show on Marietta College’s own WCMO 98.5 FM. The duo’s show, Hip Hop Hour to the Second Power, runs from 7-9 p.m. every Tuesday.

“We both like hip-hop a lot,” Curiale said, “We pick songs that are popular and that we like.” They are happy to take requests, both girls said, and they will play any suggestions they get, as long as they fit into the show’s genre.

Bambarger, who goes by “A-Bam” on the show, said her favorite aspect of doing the show is getting to play the kind of music she likes because there aren’t really stations around here that play it. “I never thought I’d have a radio show,” Curiale, better known as “D-Money,” said, “It’s different. That’s what I like.” Neither thinks having a show is very hard, the most difficult thing for both is finding edited versions of the songs they want to play. During the course of the show, they also have to break for campus and community announcements, as well as play public service announcements.

Curiale and Bambarger heard about an opening for a show through their sorority sister, Amy Hayes, who has had a show for the past two years. “We just had to e-mail the station manager and fill out some paperwork with a basic idea and timeslot. It was really simple,” Curiale commented. Now they grace the airwaves for your enjoyment on those boring Tuesday nights, so take a break and tune in.

iTunes Story now up on Examiner.com's Cleveland Page

If you remember me talking about it, I was recently hired to write technology-related stories from a college student perspective for Examiner.com‘s Cleveland page.  And low-and-behold, I am now published on the site, starting with my story discussing Apple’s changes to iTunes.

You will still receive the great Marietta College reports that I’ve been doing.  The only thing that will change is that all technology-related stories will be published on Examiner.com.  A link to the article will be posted here on Writing on the Mall.

I encourage you to please go check out my stories, and those of the other Cleveland Examiners.  There are some great writers on many topics at the site.

Weather Outlook for Your Drive

I hope that everybody has a Happy Thanksgiving and is able to enjoy the day with friends and family.  I also hope that you’re able to get home safely, so I wanted to make a note of the weather buttons that Writing On The Mall has.  On the bar to the right, you can see the current weather conditions for Marietta, Cleveland, Cincinnatti, and Pittsburg.  The image in the background shows current conditions (sunny, cloudy, rain, snow, etc, etc), while the tempreture and time is displayed.

While your drive won’t be as bad as it was for those of us who trekked through the blizzard that hit Ohio last Spring, expect areas of light to moderate snow as the day progresses through most parts of Ohio.  Just keep both hands on the steering wheel, the defrosters on high, and both eyes on the road, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a safe, simple drive.
