first_img Published on January 10, 2016 at 12:54 am Syracuse fell to No. 6 North Carolina 84-73 in the Carrier Dome on Saturday night, again faltering late after going punch-for-punch with a superior team.Isaiah Hicks’ 21 points led a balanced offensive effort by the Tar Heels (15-2, 4-0 Atlantic Coast), who scored 46 points in the paint and looked inside to pull away from the Orange (10-7, 0-4). SU made nine of its 31 3-point attempts, and shot 56.3 percent from inside the arc in the game to give itself a fighting chance at an upset in Jim Boeheim’s return from his nine-game suspension.In the end, it wasn’t enough. Here’s what we learned from Syracuse’s fourth straight ACC loss in as many contests.More Coverage:Trevor Cooney shines and Michael Gbinije shrinks in Syracuse’s 84-73 loss to No. 6 North CarolinaFast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 84-73 loss to North CarolinaSyracuse falls to No. 6 UNC, 84-73, in Jim Boeheim’s return to sidelineGrade Syracuse’s performance against UNC and vote for the player of the gameSyracuse community reacts to loss against North Carolina 1. Syracuse can be dominated inside without a team dominating the offensive glassWhen the Orange has been bullied in the paint this season — which has been most of its games — the other team has done a lot of its damage on the offensive glass.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat wasn’t the case with the Tar Heels, who came into the game with the country’s 11th best offensive rebounding percentage according to Kenpom.com. North Carolina did score 15 second-chance points, but that was only a fraction of its 46 points in the paint. Instead of using rebounds to create scoring opportunities, UNC attacked the high post of the 2-3 zone and used interior passes to exploit SU’s thin back line.Hicks came off the bench to lead the Tar Heels in scoring. Kennedy Meeks, returning from injury, also came off the bench and finished with eight points in 14 minutes. Brice Johnson finished with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting and doubled his career-high with eight assists by distributing out of the high post.In the final 8:15, the Tar Heels shot 12-of-13 from the field and made 10 field goals in the paint. SU’s inability to defend the paint was again the difference between a win and a loss, but this time it came in a different form.“It’s going to get there, but we have to defend it once we get there,” Boeheim said of ball getting into the high post and, subsequently, the paint. And he pointed to the late defensive lapses inside to illustrate what did Syracuse in on Saturday.2. Syracuse’s guards can be a big help on the defensive glass As mentioned above, North Carolina didn’t give the Orange fits on the offensive glass. Actually, SU finished with four more offensive rebounds than the Tar Heels and won the rebounding battle, 35-33.A big part of that was because Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije — who make up the SU backcourt and play the top of the 2-3 zone — stayed back and helped collect long rebounds. Cooney finished with five rebounds, three on the defensive end. Gbinije collected six, four on the defensive end.In past games, the pair would sometimes break out in transition and the Orange would get burned on long rebounds it could have feasibly grabbed. A lot of the rebounds SU doesn’t get are gathered by stronger big men around the basket. But the guards can control the area 15 or so feet away from the rim, and Cooney and Gbinije made sure they did against the Tar Heels.“We rebounded well against Pittsburgh and we did a great job tonight,” Cooney said. “Out of the 2-3 zone, it’s a lot different than man-to-man. You’re not just boxing out your one guy, you’re kind of boxing out the zone and you might have two guys in your zone.“Mike and I, we just have to come back, and a lot of the rebounds we get might be the tipped ones or the ones the bigger guys aren’t going to get. We just have to keep coming back in and keep rebounding like we did today.”3. Tyler Lydon is, understandably, hitting a freshman rutBoeheim was highly critical of the freshman forward after the loss, in which Lydon scored just two points and grabbed one rebound in a season-low 23 minutes.For most of this season, Lydon has played “starter” minutes off the bench in place of starting center Dajuan Coleman. But against the Tar Heels, Lydon was no match for UNC’s size inside and was largely unproductive.The lanky 6-foot-8 forward made one of his four field-goal attempts and his two points were also a season-low. He was also playing on the back line of the zone for a good portion of crunch time, in which North Carolina exploited the Syracuse wings with bounce passes from the high post into the short corner.Lydon’s been pledging to be more confident with his jump shot since conference play started, but Boeheim asserted that the first-year contributor needs time more than anything.“He’s a freshman, he’s just trying his feel his way around. He’s just not quite ready yet, physically to do some of the things,” Boeheim said. “I think he’s doing a good job, he’s just not quite ready yet to play.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgGerman playmaker Ozil could make his Premier League debut at Sunderland on Saturday, having made a deadline day move from Real Madrid which was greeted by disbelief from his former team-mates at the Bernabeu.Wenger is in no doubt the arrival of such a high-caliber player can only help bring on the talent of 21-year-old Wilshere, who has been troubled by injury in recent seasons and is the subject of debate over burnout following a somewhat laboured display in the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine earlier this week.“In midfield, Jack Wilshere is more comfortable in deeper positions and Ozil more in a higher position, that is why I don’t think they conflict,” said Wenger, who is set to be without Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky because of a thigh injury at the Stadium of Light.“I didn’t always think that, but looking at Jack over the years now, he likes to come deep to take the ball and make a difference, and then give and go again.“Ozil, though, is more behind the striker, higher up on the field.”Wenger had long tracked the third-generation Turkish-German playmaker, and tried to bring him to Arsenal when he moved from Werder Bremen in August 2010. Indeed it was a personal phone call from the French coach – who is fluent in German – on the eve of Arsenal’s win over Tottenham ahead of the international break proved pivotal to seal the move.Ozil, 24, was part of Germany’s successful Under-21 side which beat England 4-0 in the final of the 2009 European Championships, and is in no doubt he has signed for both a club and manager capable of taking his game to another level.Wenger said: “Ozil has the personality to express his game, which is for me the most important. He is a creative player, and that is what we want, to express his talent and develop it.“If you look well at his record, his assists are fantastic, his goal scoring record there is room for improvement.“In the next few years, you expect him to combine those two together.”last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe potential of that trio could not measure up to the tangible, present-day dominance of Davis, who again torched his former team for 46 points on 15-for-21 shooting, muscling in the paint for 13 rebounds and plucking away three steals. He also was perfect at the free-throw line, sinking all 13 of his attempts.The Lakers (28-7), who have won four in a row following their season-high four-game losing streak, again played it tighter than they had to, frittering away a 24-point lead to just single digits in the final minutes. But nothing summed up the evening’s affairs better than a dunk Davis finished on Ingram’s head while securing victory down the stretch.“He’s the recipient of our flow on offense, because he’s just as fast as anybody on the floor, more dynamic than anybody that’s on the floor, does it better playing in the interior, playing in the exterior,” James said. “He can do so many things.”And he’s a Laker because of the summer trade that sent Ingram, Ball and Hart away.The sellout crowd gave one more big salute to the former Lakers, cheering Ball in his starting lineup introduction, then getting even louder for Ingram – who is enjoying a season as a borderline All-Star. In the first timeout of the first quarter, the team played a tribute video for the trio, with a montage of the silver lining of three losing seasons. How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers That wasn’t to say the young Pelicans weren’t frisky against their old team. With his father LaVar watching in a courtside seat, Ball had 23 points for the first back-to-back 20-point games of his career. Ingram added 22, helping fuel a fast-break attack that scored 27 points against a Lakers team that was beaten down the floor more than they would like.But the veteran supporting cast that replaced them had a few bright spots, namely Green who scored 17 of his 23 points (and made five of his 3-pointers) in the first quarter alone. The Lakers were 14 for 29 from 3-point range for the night.The Pelicans are still awaiting their next star big man: rookie Zion Williamson did some pregame work on the Staples Center court, but he has not yet been cleared to play after being drafted No. 1 overall out of Duke. As they languish in 14th place in the Western Conference, hope will have to keep them nourished through a seemingly long rebuild.The Lakers? That time is over. They’re living gloriously in the present.“You’ve got Bron and A.D.,” Ball said. “That’s going to be hard for anybody.” “I appreciate the fans,” Ingram said. “The fans get us going every single night. For it to be an opposing team to give us love like that, I give respect and love to them also.”But any Lakers fan who witnessed the night’s proceedings would find it impossible to second-guess the trade that sent them away.Davis punched one of the most impressive baskets of the season in the first quarter, reaching back almost impossibly far for a one-handed alley-oop as the Lakers sprinted to a 42-point first quarter. James joked that Danny Green, who threw the off-target pass behind his head, was “one of the worst alley-oop passers” in NBA history.But Davis’ most dominant frame was the third, when he scored 19 of the Lakers’ 31 points. He had scored 41 points in the first meeting with the Pelicans, but on a force-feeding of post-up possessions. These 46 came on dunks, above-the-key 3-pointers and all organic shots.“It was just more flowing, we just run the offense and the ball happened to come to me in positions where I was able to score,” Davis said. “I’m finding my way.”Whereas the young core’s fit with James was tenuous, LeBron looked comfortable at the controls with Davis as his chief weapon. Aside from 17 points, James racked up 15 assists – eight in the first quarter alone – to remain the pace-setter for the rest of the league.Related Articlescenter_img Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs PreviousLos Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, right, talks with New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson, left, and guard Lonzo Ball during the second half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Jan. 3, 2020, in Los Angeles.

Staples Center once swelled with cheers for the slender forward and his fellow young teammates. It was a dark era, but Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart represented promise ahead for the down-and-out Lakers franchise.It didn’t work out. The young core was shipped to New Orleans this summer in the interest of turning hope into actual results. And that tradeoff was the underpinning of Friday night’s 123-113 Lakers victory over the pieces of the puzzle they once thought would fit.

Gorillas before  getting drafted by the Oakland A’s in 2013.MiLB.com — Matt Stalcup didn’t only go the distance Tuesday, he set career highs in innings and strikeouts in the process.Matt Stalcup in Beloit, Vermont.The left-handed Oakland prospect went all nine frames in Class A Beloit’s 3-0 win at Peoria, scattering three hits and racking up eight strikeouts without issuing a walk. He hadn’t pitched more than six innings in a pro outing and bested his single-game strikeout mark by one.Stalcup improved to 5-4 and lowered his ERA to 4.02 in his 19th appearance and 12th start of the year. Over 80 2/3 innings, he has struck out 62 and walked 18 while holding opposing batters to a .268 average.The 2013 ninth-round pick allowed a two-out single to Richy Pedroza in the third inning, a one-out single to Pedroza in the sixth and a one-out single to C.J.

No Chiefs baserunners reached second in the game until McElroy swiped one on defensive indifference late.“(Stalcup) was mixing it up pretty good,” Pedroza told the Journal Star of Peoria, Illinois. “He had a good changeup going, throwing strikes and he’d get up ahead of our hitters, we had a hard time. I thought we threw away a lot of at-bats against him, though.”The 24-year-old Kansas native made 11 appearances, four of which were starts, last year for Class A Short Season Vermont, where he went 2-4 with a 2.83 ERA.On Tuesday, Beloit’s Michael Soto hit a solo home run in the sixth, while Melvin Mercedes chipped in a run-scoring sacrifice fly in the fifth and an RBI single in the ninth.

first_imgA long-time legislator from Cedar Falls resigned abruptly Thursday afternoon.Democrat Jeff Danielson had been a state senator since January of 2005. He’s a Navy veteran and for the past 25 years he’s worked as a Cedar Falls fire fighter. He resigned from that job yesterday, too. Danielson told the Iowa Starting Line blog and KWWL Television that he wouldn’t be leaving the state senate if he hadn’t decided to leave his fire fighting job.According to The Waterloo Courier, at least eight other Cedar Falls fire fighters have resigned in the past five months out of frustration over the city’s decision to train police to perform fire department functions.Danielson told KWWL he had a new job in the Cedar Falls area, but details of that job were still under wraps at 10 p.m. last night. Danielson’s senate district covered all of Cedar Falls, the community of Hudson and a portion of Waterloo. He won the district by 18 points in 2016. The governor must now schedule a special election to select a replacement who’ll serve the district until the 2020 election. The district looks to be competitive ground for both parties. There about about 850 more registered Democrats than Republicans in Senate District 30.last_img read more
