UW remains undefeated after Big Ten, Big 12 challenge

first_imgDEREK MONTGOMERY/Herald photoAmy Vermeulen proved she was ready to play this weekend. The senior captain led the No. 25 Badgers (3-0-1) with three goals, as the Badgers went undefeated against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.Vermeulen’s first goal was delivered against Oklahoma last Friday. Vermeulen’s goal came at 27:19 in the first half off an assist from junior Allison Preiss.During the first period, Wisconsin out-shot the Sooners 8-3, but maintained only a slim 1-0 advantage.In the second half, Vermeulen used a penalty kick at the 59:00 minute-mark to add another point to the scoreboard and give the Badgers a 2-0 lead. Vermeulen’s penalty goal attempt was the only shot for the Badgers during the second period.“Amy is the type of player that is going to get five or six shots a game,” Wisconsin head coach Dean Duerst said. “She does a great job with the ball, and we do a good job of using her.”The Badgers ended their game against the Sooners with a 2-0 victory. It was the second shutout this season for sophomore goalkeeper Lynn Murray.“It’s hard to not feel happy about a win, but that was not our best game,” Duerst said. “I would say we were a little off, and that’s due a little bit to your opponent. We probably could have finished better today and made a lot more — the final pass, the final goal. Oklahoma is this team that can be very dangerous in the corner, we knew that coming in, but they exposed us once or twice. But, it never broke down the team. Overall, team defense was pretty good today.”“It’s very nice to pick up the win,” Vermeulen said. “We can play better, though, and we know that. So even though we won, which is always good, we can learn from it.”Though down two starters, Wisconsin carried the momentum from its first weekend victory to its game Sunday afternoon against Oklahoma State.The Cowboys struck early in the first half to send the game into a 1-0 Oklahoma State advantage at halftime.During the second half, Vermeulen and the Badgers quickly struck back. With the momentum shifting towards the net, Preiss quickly delivered a pass to freshman Elise Weber, who kicked the ball over to the back post, where Vermeulen headed it in to the net to knot the contest at 1-1.The remainder of the second period would go scoreless. The Badgers and the Cowboys continued to battle through two overtime periods, but neither was able to break the deadlock, ending in a 1-1 tie.“As a group, I don’t think it was our best effort,” Duerst, said. “It is always tough to tie. It was a very exciting game and both teams could have won it. Our first-half performance was a level down and it affected the outcome of the game. We need to learn from that. We definitely came back in the second half and played with a lot more energy. It was a great battle.”“[From this game], we learned that it is going to be a really physical season,” Vermeulen said. “Every game is going to be like this. It’s going to be tight and it’s going to be hard. It’s not going to be easy. I think we have to go into every game [knowing] that it is going to be hard and knowing that we are going to have to put everything into it. We just have to put this game behind us and move on.”Wisconsin will next play at the Portland tournament, where they are scheduled to face No. 7 Portland (4-0-0) on Sept. 9 and No. 20 Washington (0-2-2) on Sept. 11.Last weekend, Washington lost to San Diego State, 1-0, and tied with Pacific in double overtime, 1-1, while Portland beat San Diego State 3-0 and Pacific 2-0.last_img read more

Freshmen shine in 1st game of season

first_imgLUKAS KEAPPROTHThe freshmen got their first taste of University of Wisconsin basketball Saturday night as the Badgers routed the Augustana Vikings 81-51 at the Kohl Center.Augustana, a Division II school based in South Dakota, was physically overmatched. Its tallest player checked in at 6-foot-8, and the Badgers took advantage of their height bonus, dominating the paint all game. Augustana head coach Tom Billeter was not particularly surprised with the outcome of the match.“They’re bigger than we are, they’re stronger than we are, they shoot it better than we do, and they’re quicker,” Billeter said. “I think we played a team tonight of some men that are very good players.”The freshmen made a major impact in the game, combining for 18 points and seven assists. Most notably, freshman guard Jordan Taylor — who was Minnesota’s Mr. Basketball last year — contributed with five assists, five points and two steals in 21 minutes of play.“[The freshmen] all contributed,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “There’s things that a coach sees that they have to correct and get better. … You have to start playing in college as if there’s nothing else around and stay focused all the time.”“I think they played really well,” Wisconsin forward Marcus Landry said. “Today they seemed a little more comfortable out there in the way they played. They played good defense, didn’t turn the ball over — for the most part, they were pretty good.”Right from the start, the Badgers attacked the rim, and it paid off quickly. With 15:18 left in the first half, Augustana went into the bonus, and Wisconsin gradually took control of the game.After the Vikings cut the Badgers’ lead to 15-12 with 11:24 remaining in the first half, Wisconsin went on a 24-12 run to close the half, ending the first period with a commanding 15 point lead.The Badgers came out firing again in the second half, hitting three consecutive three pointers by Marcus Landry and Jason Bohannon.“They were good shots to take,” Wisconsin forward Joe Krabbenhoft said. “They didn’t force anything. Guys were finding [Landry] open, and he did his job in knocking them down.”With the Badgers up by 18 points with 10:46 left in the game, freshman guard and forward Ryan Evans made a layup while getting fouled as the Badgers continued to roll over the Vikings.Landry led all scorers with 21 points, shooting 8-for-12 from the field. Sophomore forward Jon Leuer also contributed with 15 points and shooting 7-for-11. The Badgers shot nearly 49.1% as a team, and junior guard Trevon Hughes feels the team is heading in the right direction in terms of offensive flow.“We got into our offense kind of well,” Hughes said. “We don’t have much plays yet, so it’s a little slow just running the swing and some ball screens. … The swing helped us a lot, and we’ll introduce some plays in practice this week, and we’re slowly going to get into things.”Aside from playing its first competitive game since the 2008 NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin was able to get every freshman into the game and get them acclimated to Division I college basketball. Even though the game was a blowout, Krabbenhoft feels it was an important learning process for the freshmen to go through.“I think it was really beneficial just by looking at the [score] sheet,” Krabbenhoft said. “You see all the names under Wisconsin and see all those guys get in and get a chance to show what they’ve learned, what they’ve gotten better at in the summer and what the freshmen can bring to this team.”last_img read more

Syracuse ice hockey offense stifled by Bemidji State’s backup goalie in 3-0 loss

first_imgErin Deters spent the whole game on Bemidji State’s bench Friday night as she watched her fellow goalie Brittni Mowat hold Syracuse to only one goal. Deters did her one better on Saturday.Deters stopped all 28 shots she faced. Everything from slap shots from the point to quick cross-crease jams. Deters looked every bit the part of a star as Bemidji State (2-0) cruised to a 3-0 victory and a weekend sweep over Syracuse (0-2) on Saturday afternoon at Tennity Ice Pavilion.From start to finish, Syracuse struggled to generate scoring chances, even on the powerplay, as it went 0-for-6 on Saturday. The Orange are now 1-10 on the advantage this season.“I really look at the chances we manufactured. Whether we scored or not is one thing but I think were too hesitant,” Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan said. “I was telling the team we’re almost trying to be too precise and I think when you get that way and you’re trying to be so fine-tuned and you look for that perfect goal it becomes a mindset and you start forcing passes.”Flanagan and players both admitted that SU became too fancy at times. For long stretches of the game it seemed the Orange kept on passing and passing, often letting shot opportunities go by. Then players got too precise. Stick-handling too much and passing up on shots to carry the puck and look for a more open shooter, never really testing Deters.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEven when Syracuse did manage to get decent opportunities, shots either missed the frame, or Deters stonewalled them.The Orange’s best opportunity came when Stephanie Grossi skated in behind the rush in the second period to find the puck on her stick in a shooting lane. She missed wide.“I think that just comes back to practice and skill sessions, working on ‘sniping’ or getting it into those little corners,” Grossi said. “If we can do that on a goalie it won’t matter how good the goalie is.”On a weekend where Syracuse was outscored 5-1, the Orange’s offense lacked flow. After 14 penalties on Friday night, there were an additional 19 called on Saturday which limited either side from getting into a rhythm. Flanagan said his team may have been hurt by “overthinking” as well as the Beaver’s persistent physical play.After this weekend, SU is off for two weeks until hitting the road to take on Northeastern, giving Flanagan and the players some much needed time to work and improve.“We can maybe just take a step back and get back to fundamentals and start relying on instincts and keeping the game simple.” Flanagan said. “Maybe we can just relax, we need to do some conditioning, and we can really spend some time on conditioning.”All the time spent on special teams, both power play and penalty kill, as well as combatting Bemidji State’s feisty style had Syracuse off its game all weekend.Moving forward the Orange’s emphasis is to play tougher and put more pucks on net to try and generate chances. Savannah Rennie was frustrated by being shutout by Deters, but said some of the blame lies within the SU offense.“The biggest thing is to get traffic in the net,” Rennie said. “The less she can see, the less she can stop. Put pucks on net, get traffic and we’ll be golden.” Comments Published on October 1, 2016 at 8:14 pm Contact Andrew: aegraham@syr.edu | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Florida Schools Remain Closed For The Remainder of the School Year

first_imgFlorida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that all of the state’s K-12 schools will remain closed for the remainder of the school year.The governor made the announcement during a press conference on April 18.“We spoke with a lot of folks throughout the state. There were some differing opinions. Some parents were not interested in their kids going back. Some mothers [said] it’s been tough around the house, they would have liked to have seen them go back,” he said, “but I think, as we looked at the clock to see how well it would look like, we’ve got pretty good momentum for distance learning.”Following spring break, some 162,000 students in Broward County were able to successfully log on to the learning platform Canvas, to resume classes.“It’s not the ideal situation, but given where we are in the school year, we felt that was the best decision to go forward,” said DeSantis.Broward Public County Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie showed support for the announcement, saying that “I think it was a very good decision”.Runcie said he understands it could be a hard time for some parents, but he is confident they will get through it.“I just want parents to know that look we’re there to support you,” he said. “We will work together, we will get through this. We have to, because our children depend on us.”last_img read more

NBA playoffs 2019: Is ‘The Process’ complete for the 76ers?

first_imgJrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Michael Carter-Williams, Fultz, Landry Shamet, Dario Saric and Robert Covington are just a few of the players who were sacrificed to push “The Process” forward. Now the 76ers have a window of opportunity, and they have to seize it.So, is “The Process” complete? Nobody is sure at the moment, but it will be clear once the 2019 champion is crowned. Because anything short of the 76ers holding up the Larry O’Brien Trophy in June means there remains work to do. NBA playoffs 2019: 5 players who can swing a series Is “The Process” complete in Philadelphia? The 76ers success in this year’s NBA playoffs could answer that question.The seeds of the term “trust the process” were planted by former 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie in 2013. NBA playoffs 2019: 3 reasons the postseason without LeBron James will be differentcenter_img “We talk a lot about process — not outcome — and trying to consistently take all the best information you can and consistently make good decisions,” Hinkie told reporters at a press conference after he was hired. “Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t, but you reevaluate them all.”The 76ers were coming off a 34-48 season and missed the postseason. Philadelphia’s fans couldn’t help but latch on to Hinkie’s use of “process,” which was likely in reference to the rebuilding period that was about to follow. Related News The 76ers finished 2013-14 with a 19-63 record, the second worst mark in the NBA. They ended up getting the third pick in the 2014 draft, and it probably turned out better than expected. They selected now-All-Star center Joel Embiid out of Kansas, who nicknamed himself “The Process,” adding more fuel to the fire.Embiid, however, suffered a foot injury leading up to the season and had to sit for two years. The 76ers were dreadful in his absence, winning just 28 total games while he was out. The big man’s rookie season was then riddled with injuries and he played in just 31 games. The 76ers matched their win total from the previous two years, though, winning 28 game in 2016-17.While Embiid was waiting in the wings, Hinkie stepped down from his general manager position just before the 2016 draft. Philadelphia selected Ben Simmons with the top pick that year.Simmons, a 6-10 point forward with the potential to turn the franchise, also suffered a foot injury that kept him out for a full season. But he returned with a vengeance in 2017-18. Simmons won Rookie of the Year and Philadelphia ended its five-year playoff drought, making it to the second round, where it lost to the Celtics.It wasn’t the result the 76ers wanted, but it showed that there was hope for the future.Now fast forward to today’s NBA.The 76ers’ top pick in 2017, Markelle Fultz, didn’t pan out, but they have been able to swing some impressive trades in 2018-19.The Sixers managed to land Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, and these moves have the potential to be game-changers when the postseason begins. Butler, 29, is a four-time All-Star and has developed a reputation for being one of the league’s most dangerous offensive threats in clutch situations. Harris, a journeyman for most of his 10-year NBA career, was playing at an All-Star level for the Clippers before being traded in February. The talent on Philadelphia’s starting unit, it could be argued, is rivaled only by Golden State. At least, on paper.The 76ers legitimately have four All-Star caliber players, but they’ve had limited time to jell and improve team chemistry as the playoffs approach.Embiid, Simmons, Butler and Harris have started together in a measly 10 of a possible 26 games, according to Basketball Reference. Philly has gone 7-3 when every member of the quartet starts.Philadelphia secured the third seed in the Eastern Conference and will play Brooklyn in the first round of the playoffs. Barring something unforeseen, the 76ers shouldn’t be tested until the second round, where the Raptors will likely be waiting.The road ahead could be tough, but Philadelphia’s push to win an NBA championship needs to be now. Butler and Harris will be free agents after the season, and there’s no guarantee they will stay for the long haul. If the 76ers fail to retain at least one of them, it could be poised to decline in the seasons to come. last_img read more

MLB’s Non-Stars: Seven big names who haven’t been Cleveland-worthy in 2019

first_imgHarrison Bader, OF, CardinalsWhy he’s here: There were times last year when Bader looked like the team’s next superstar — flashing power, speed and defensive wizardry in center field. He finished 2018 with 12 homers, 15 stolen bases and a 3.8 bWAR in 427 plate appearances, and the stage was set for his emergence on a national stage. Instead, he’s struggled at the plate, batting .203 with an OPS+ of 83. He’s in an especially deep funk at the moment, with just two hits in his past 39 at-bats (.051 average). As Cardinals fans know, too, the team traded Tommy Pham to the Rays last summer in part to give full-time at-bats to Bader. In 117 games with Tampa Bay — 39 in 2018 and 78 this year — Pham has a .303/.406/.519 slash line and 5.2 bWAR and 149 OPS+.Brandon Crawford, SS, GiantsWhy he’s here: The longtime Giants shortstop finished 12th in the NL MVP vote in 2016 and was an All-Star in 2018, but his offensive numbers are full-season career lows, pretty much across the board. He’s batting .223 with a .289 on-base percentage. His OPS+ of 69 is by far the worst for any MLB shortstop with at least 200 plate appearances, and that -0.1 bWAR isn’t like Crawford, either (his career low is 2.0). For today’s All-Star conversation, we’re going to talk about players who won’t be making the trip to Cleveland for baseball’s annual Midsummer Classic. But we’re not going to talk about All-Star snubs.No, these are big names who have produced seasons — so far, let’s point out — that have not been even close to deserving of spots in the All-Star game. It’s not a list of the worst players in the sport, but more of a look at seven of the more disappointing seasons so far.  MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNThese guys reside — for the first half of 2019, at least — at the intersection of lofty expectations and disappointing production, if that makes sense. Let’s jump in. Jose Ramirez, 3B, IndiansWhy he’s here: Ramirez finished third in the AL MVP vote in 2017, and he was third again in 2018. In 2019, though? His production through the 81 games he’s played has dropped off the table. His OPS+ is 68, down from 151 in 2018. He has just five homers, after blasting 39 last year. His on-base percentage is .310, down from .387. He has just 21 extra-base hits this year, after 81 last year. It’s a shame, too, because it would have been great to see Cleveland celebrate another great season from Ramirez at the hometown All-Star Game. Bryce Harper, OF, PhilliesWhy he’s here: At that aforementioned intersection of expectations and production, it’s not a stretch to say no player has produced a more disappointing season to this point than Bryce Harper. The Phillies gave him a 13-year, $330-million deal early in spring training, hoping he’d be the final piece to take the franchise into the postseason and on to a World Series championship. The results — for the player and team — have been mixed, at best. Harper hasn’t been awful, but he hasn’t been great, either. For example, he leads the Phillies in plate appearances (371), but he’s seventh among position players in bWAR (0.8). Well, he’s tied for seventh with Jay Bruce, who has 85 plate appearances with the squad. Chris Archer, SP, PiratesWhy he’s here: The Pirates surprised many people in the industry last summer when they traded for Rays starter Chris Archer, a high-ceiling right-hander who had been the subject of trade rumors for years. He was good-not-great for the Pirates in 10 starts after the deal, posting a 4.00 FIP and 10.3 K/9 rate, with 3.1 walks per nine. This year has been rough. Through 14 starts, Archer has a 5.50 ERA and 5.80 FIP. His strikeouts per nine are similar (9.8), but his walks per nine number has skyrocketed to 4.6; that ranks 101 of 105 big league starters with at least 70 innings this year. He’s lasted at least six full innings only five times in 14 starts. His HR/9 number is up, but that’s mostly because of one particularly ugly start in Atlanta when he allowed five homers in six innings of work; aside from that start, he hasn’t allowed more than two in any game. It didn’t help that the two players the Pirates traded have looked like stars for the Rays. Tyler Glasnow had a 1.86 ERA in eight starts this year before he was sidelined by a forearm strain. Austin Meadows, the other piece, has cooled off lately but was just named to the AL All-Star squad. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B, CardinalsWhy he’s here: From 2013 to 2018 with the Diamondbacks, Goldschmidt produced a .301/.406/.541 slash line, with a 150 OPS+ and 6.1 bWAR. He averaged 30 homers, 100 RBIs and 100 runs scored. The Cardinals traded for him this offseason and gave him a five-year, $130 million extension before he played his first regular-season game for the franchise. And Goldschmidt started his Cardinals career with a bang, blasting three home runs in just his second game wearing the uniform. Since then, though? His production has been decidedly non-Goldschmidtesque. His slash line sits at .247/.337/.404 and his OPS+ is 97, below league average. And, yes, RBIs are a flawed statistic, but I don’t think anyone imagined a scenario in which Goldschmidt led the team in plate appearances but was fifth in RBIs, behind Kolten Wong and Yadier Molina. The Cardinals are 12th of 15 NL teams in runs scored, and though Goldschmidt isn’t the only issue — Matt Carpenter has an OPS+ of just 88 — he’s not helping much. Robinson Cano, 2B, MetsWhy he’s here: I could almost copy/paste part of what I just wrote about Goldschmidt. The Mets traded for Cano this offseason, after a year in which he hit .303/.374/.471 and produced an OPS+ of 135, despite being suspended for 80 games (OK, that part’s different than Goldschmidt). And he started his time with the Mets with a bang, homering in his first at-bat (off Max Scherzer) and delivering an eighth-inning RBI single in a 2-0 win on Opening Day. Since then he’s looked like an aging veteran in his Age 36 season. Cano has a .243/.293/.372 slash line and an OPS+ of 80. He’s still under contract through 2023, at $24 million a season (the Mariners are paying $3.75 million of that each remaining year).  last_img read more
