A gold-medal experience from a former Buckeye, a sexual assault case from the University of Michigan and the state of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Join Steve Brown and Thomas Bradley for this week's episode of After The Score.

Fresh off her trip back to North America, Natalie Spooner (@natspooner5) of the Canadians women’s hockey team caught up with Thomas Bradley and Steve Brown to talk about her experience in Russia and her gold medal. Spooner a Buckeye great in the women’s hockey program, plays for the Toronto Furies and got the call to play for the National team. She is the all-time leading goal scorer in Buckeye history and now has an Olympic gold medal to add to her trophy case.

Later, we dive into a sexual assault case involving a Wolverine football player in Ann Arbor, Michigan that had largely been lying beneath the radar until recently. Matt Slovin (@MattSlovin), a reporter for the Michigan Daily newspaper at the University of Michigan, joins the show to talk about the case and what is transpiring on campus.

And to close out the show, WOSU Public Media’s After The Score catches up with Brian Dulik (@BrianDulik), a Cleveland Cavaliers beat writer for NBA.com. Are the Cavs causing more harm than good with their recent string of wins, or do they have a real chance at the playoffs?
