Badgers raise Final Four banner, take down Northern Kentucky

first_imgFor just the second time in the history of the Kohl Center, a Final Four banner was raised into the rafters.Before the third-ranked Wisconsin men’s basketball team took to the floor for their regular-season opener against Northern Kentucky Friday night, the 2014 Final Four banner was raised into the rafters and last year’s team was given their Final Four rings in a pregame ceremony.“The hype is good, the people are talking about us, it’s cool, it’s fun but at some point you have to turn the page from last year,” junior forward Sam Dekker said of the ceremony. “I think after that, everyone came back down to earth and it’s always good to get back on the court against a different opponent in a game that matters now standings-wise.”Once they came back down to earth after the pomp and circumstance of the ceremony, No. 3 Wisconsin (1-0, 0-0 Big Ten) showed the 17,279 in attendance at the Kohl Center why they’re a top-five team, disposing of Northern Kentucky 62-31 Friday night.Preseason Big Ten Player of the Year Frank Kaminsky started the 2014-15 season right where he left off last season, chipping in his first double-double of the year with a game-high 16 points and 11 rebounds. Dekker added 15 points for UW while sophomore forward Nigel Hayes hauled in 10 rebounds of his own.The UW defense was in mid-season form Friday night, holding Northern Kentucky to only 26.4 percent shooting (14-for-53) from the floor and 12.5 percent shooting (2-for-16) from beyond the arc. No player from NKU scored in double figures with Daniel Camps leading the way for the Norse with eight points. The Badgers dominated the glass as well Friday night, outrebounding NKU 42-28.“I think we did really well defensively tonight,” Kaminsky said. “Holding an opponent to 31 points is pretty good. We had a little slip-up at the end; we wanted to hold it to under 30 but it’s a good start and hopefully we can build on it.”Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan was well prepared for the Norse offensive attack Friday night, recognizing their quickness and their ability to attack the basket. Shutting down Northern Kentucky’s dribble-drive was key to the Badgers equaling the fewest points they have given up while under the direction of Ryan.“We know the strength that [Northern Kentucky] brought in here with their quickness off the dribble-drives and their throw backs and things like that; they’re pretty effective with that,” Ryan said. “So I thought that defensively Vitto [Brown] and Nigel [Hayes] and the other guys…they did a good job of moving their feet and shutting off the driving lanes.”Both teams came out slow the first five minutes of the game before the Badgers went on an 18-4 run to take an 18-8 lead over Northern Kentucky with 9:05 left in the first half. UW would take a 27-15 lead at halftime, holding NKU to 28 percent shooting (7-for-25) in the half. Kaminsky led all scorers with 10 points while he and Hayes each added seven rebounds for the Badgers. Wisconsin also had assists on eight of their 11 field goals with Kaminsky leading the way with three.In the second half the Badgers started on an 18-6 run with senior guard Traevon Jackson scoring seven of his nine points during the run while Dekker added five points of his own. At this point the Badgers had opened up a 46-21 lead over NKU and were well on their way to their 17th-straight home-opening win.Returning four of their five starters from last season, the cohesiveness of the Badgers was on display Friday night as well. UW finished the game with 13 assists on 23 field goals with Kaminsky leading the way with four.“Returning so many people from last year’s team we have an understanding on how to play with each other already…building on last year,” Kaminsky said. “Everyone knows everyone’s strengths so we just try to play to that.”Following the win, the Badgers will have a short turnaround as they take on Chattanooga Sunday at the Kohl Center. Tipoff is scheduled for 12 p.m.last_img read more

Oxford and Cambridge gear up for Varsity Esports Match 2018

first_imgOxford and Cambridge have a long-standing competition that takes place on water, but the feud has also carried over into esports in recent years. The Varsity Esports Match 2018 is their fifth annual competition, and it’s set to take place once more on June 17th.This was, fittingly, first reported on by the British Esports Association.  More than 120 people are expected to be in attendance to the varsity matches, with streams being hosted on Twitch by Oxford Esports. Oxford University eSports Society (OUES) will take on Cambridge University Digital Gaming Society (CUDGS) at Oxford’s campus.The organisers explained that “the Oxford-Cambridge rivalry has had the two universities competing in sporting events for well over a century, and we are very excited to see the Varsity Esports Match adding to the history of these two world renowned universities.”Teams will be carefully selected by each university, with matches taking place over six separate esports titles: Dota 2, League of Legends, Overwatch, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Hearthstone, and StarCraft 2.Couch Casters is on board as an official partner for the event, providing experienced event coordinators, a tech team, production crew, and casters. Twitch is also involved, helping with transport and actual coverage of the event on the platform’s homepage. DinoPC, Razer, noblechairs, and Zowie are all partners of the Varsity Esports Match 2018, too.Esports Insider says: The Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge has been around for what seems like forever, and we hope their rivalry becomes as established and hardly fought in the world of esports for just as long. It shows the universities are staying in touch with current trends in sport, and with six titles involved it should prove a fun watch.last_img read more

Angels salvage final game of Freeway Series, beat Dodgers 3-2

first_imgANAHEIM >> If such a thing as a must-win interleague game on Sept. 9 even exists, the Angels won one Wednesday.Their 3-2 win over the Dodgers before 42,799 at Angel Stadium salvaged the final game of the Freeway Series and allowed them to momentarily pull a game closer to the Texas Rangers.The Rangers (73-65), who lost Wednesday, currently lead the Angels (70-69) by 3 1/2 games in the race for the American League’s second wild-card position. The Dodgers maintained their 8 1/2-game lead over the San Francisco Giants atop the National League West. The game was tied 2-2 when Kole Calhoun led off the eighth inning with a double to right field off Dodgers pitcher Luis Avilan (2-5). He went to third base when the ball caromed off Andre Ethier’s glove, an error on the Dodgers’ right fielder.Pedro Baez relieved Avilan and struck out Mike Trout with an impressive 99-mph fastball, but Albert Pujols followed with a single up the middle, driving in Calhoun with the game-winning run.“I was trying to do my job and get the ball up, try and hit a sacrifice fly, something deep,” Pujols said. “I was lucky enough to get a base hit back up through the middle. In that situation, with one out, infield in, I think I have enough experience to calm myself and just get a good pitch to hit and try to do some damage. Or hit a sacrifice fly. Try not to do too much, just let the pitcher provide the power, especially when the guy is throwing 98- and 100-mph sinker.”The Angels had lost their last eight games against the Dodgers, their longest head-to-head losing streak since the Freeway Series began.Making his second major league start of the season, Dodgers right-hander Joe Wieland subbed in for Mat Latos as an 11th-hour replacement. He allowed two runs in four innings: the first on back-to-back doubles by Erick Aybar and David Freese in the second inning, the second on a triple by Taylor Featherston and a sacrifice fly by Calhoun in the third. “I thought I was going to be more rusty,” said Wieland, who hadn’t pitched a game at any level since Aug. 26. “My arm felt great. I thought toward the end maybe I was going to lose some in the tank, but I came in after that fourth (inning) and I told (pitching coach Rick Honeycutt) I’m good.“They told me, though, this was the plan.”Wieland said he was first told Tuesday night that he might get the assignment. The official word came down when he arrived at Angel Stadium on Wednesday.His opponent was Angels ace Garrett Richards — an unfair matchup on paper, but one that tilted in Wieland’s favor quickly. Richards allowed a home run to Dodgers rookie Scott Schebler on his first pitch of the game, then settled in masterfully. He didn’t allow another hit until Corey Seager led off the fifth inning with a single. Seager was then picked off base when first baseman C.J. Cron held the gloved ball on Seager’s leg when it came off the bag.In 7 2/3 innings, Richards allowed four hits, walked three batters and struck out 11 — tying his career high.“That was a tremendous effort from Garrett,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “Early in the game he was trying to find his release point. Once he found it, he was spinning it well. Everything came together. …. Not many mistakes tonight from Garrett after the first couple of innings.”The Dodgers trailed 2-1 in the eighth inning when Joc Pederson greeted Richards with a leadoff double to left field. Austin Barnes bunted Pederson to third, giving Schebler and Chase Utley a chance to cash in with one out.Richards struck out Schebler swinging on a vicious curveball. Utley must have been looking for the curve on Richards’ 1-2 pitch; he got it and stroked an RBI double down the left-field line, tying the game 2-2. “He wanted the ball to start the eighth inning,” Scioscia said of Richards. “It’s hot. … That’s what a lead dog in the rotation does, what Garrett did tonight. You go out there and you stop a streak. You shut down a team that’s been scoring a lot of runs. They have a great offense over there.”Jose Alvarez (4-3) got the Angels out of the eighth inning without incurring further damage, striking out Adrian Gonzalez on a fastball just below the knees for the final out. He was the Angels’ pitcher of record despite throwing only four pitches. Huston Street tossed a scoreless ninth inning for his 33rd save.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

This time Ronaldo Souza will look to be more Thiago Santos and less Luke Rockhold when he challenges Jan Blachowicz in Jacare’s native Brazil. The duo is all set for the Light Heavyweight main event seizing the limelight and keeping their fans up from their seats. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, a veteran in the UFC roster, has very strong control on the mat and John might have a tough time grappling him. At 40, he is an explosive athlete however what causes the slightest tension for the fans is that despite his strong calves, he might be giving up a substantial amount of reach to Blachowicz, who is only one inch taller and has a 78” reach compared to Jacare’s 72”.Jan “John” Błachowicz, on the other hand, might not have physical strength at bay but is known to take over with his strong mental game, which has always rendered the opponent unconscious around the fence. However, the fight is predicted to be very simple and if Jacare can get Blachowicz down then there’s every chance he can get him out of there with a submission, as well.Light Heavyweight Title Bout (Main Event) – Maurício Rua and Paul CraigThe co-main event this week is a reminder of the abode of talent that exists in the Light Heavyweight with the incredible opening act with Maurício Rua and Paul Craig.Keeping his boat afloat this year after that violent knockout by Anthony Smith, Maurício “Shogun” Rua is back this weekend to face Paul “Bearjew” Craig. Craig is almost everyone’s favorite all over the world right now. He may not the best athlete or isn’t as skilled but has got to this level due to sheer hard work and dedication. He’s not terrible from the clinch to be fair, but against some of the more explosive 205lbers, he always has a tough time as he struggles to grapple.Shogun, on the other hand, is a BJJ black belt and a skilled grappler and is known to steer his opponents away by reminding them of his incredibly hard punches. Amongst these two, Craig might have some success early on by clinching with Shogun, but we really doubt his strength and stamina to combat the heat that Shogun’s going to throw at him. Of course, Shogun’s power and finishing instincts undoubtedly remain intact. Advertisementlast_img read more

Temple women’s basketball outplayed on ‘both sides of the floor’ in loss

first_imgSophomore guard Marissa Mackins, who led the team with 19 points, said that the Eagles were playing aggressive, but the Owls largely beat themselves.  “They were doubling [junior forward] Mia [Davis], who is our go-to on offense,” Mackins said. “But like coach [said], we weren’t doing what we were supposed to be doing on either end of the court. So really it was on us.” “They have guys that can beat you off the dribble, and are capable of knocking in threes,” Cardoza said. “And they’re really quick, just stopping them in transition was really difficult.” Offensively, the Owls struggled to take care of the ball. The Owls finished with 15 turnovers, compared to just four from Florida Gulf Coast. The Eagles took the ball away 12 times, while the Owls recorded just one steal.  “I thought that we would compete a little bit better than we did today,” Cardoza said. “I thought on both sides of the floor they dominated us and made it difficult to defend them and difficult for us to score.” Redshirt-sophomore guard Ashley Jones dribbles the ball down the court during the Owls’ game against Florida Gulf Coast at McGonigle Hall on Dec. 22 | NICK DAVIS / THE TEMPLE NEWS Cardoza felt that the Owls were giving up too many wide-open threes, a shot that Florida Gulf Coast was capable of hitting. The Eagles’ balanced offense was difficult to defend, Cardoza said.  Redshirt-senior guard Davion Wingate gave the Owls trouble, in particular, scoring 31 points on 10-of-15 shooting from the field. Wingate is currently shooting 50 percent from three on the season after making six threes out of eight attempts against the Owls. The Owls did not give enough attention to her threat, Cardoza said. center_img The Owls struggled all day to find their shot, while Florida Gulf Coast did not. The Eagles took more than twice as many three-pointers as the Owls did, hitting them at a 40.4 percent rate, compared to the Owls’ 27.3 percent shooting mark from three.  Temple University women’s basketball (6-6, 0-1, The American Athletic Conference) fell short to Florida Gulf Coast University (12-2) Sunday afternoon at McGonigle Hall, 93-67.  “It’s something that we just haven’t been able to focus on,” Cardoza said. “Knowing where the shots are coming from and knowing where we need to go.”  The Owls lacked intensity from the beginning of the game, coach Tonya Cardoza said. Florida Gulf Coast’s ability to grab offensive rebounds killed any type of comeback the Owls could have mounted in the second half. The Eagles took long-distance shots, which yielded longer bounces on rebounds. The Eagles grabbed six offensive boards in the last two quarters. The Owls’ next game is at La Salle (6-6) Dec. 30 at 7:00 p.m.last_img read more

Wimbledon will receive 114 million euros for its pandemic insurance

first_imgThe cancellation of Wimbledon 2020 will not be such a tough monetary blow for the group of the match. As reported by The Occasions newspaper, The All England Membership will receive £ 100m (€ 114m) as insurance towards pandemics after the cancellation of the match for the primary time since World Warfare II.Wimbledon is the one one of many 4 Grand Slam which have such a insurance in case of a pandemic. The match group took this step, for which it pays 1.7 million annually, following issues in regards to the unfold of the SARS virus in 2003. These 114 million euros signify a cushion that cushions the financial harm brought on by the cancellation of Wimbledon, which anticipated to exceed 284 million euros in income. that the group registered within the 2018 version.This additional highlights lRoland Garros’ drastic choice to maneuver the match to September 20, only one week after the US Open. The Parisian Grand Slam doesn’t have such a insurance and, if it’s not disputed, it might imply losses of greater than 260 million of euros.last_img read more
