UW looks to rebound after first home defeat

first_imgUW redshirt freshman forward Ryan Evans and the Badgers suffered their first home loss to an unranked Big Ten team Tuesday. They get a chance to get back on track against struggling Indiana.[/media-credit]After suffering a home loss for the first time this season, this week has been a different experience for No. 11 Wisconsin as the Badgers look to avoid losing consecutive games, something they have not done in 2009-10.UW welcomes the Indiana Hoosiers to the Kohl Center for a Saturday afternoon matchup the Badgers cannot afford to lose. With only six games remaining, Wisconsin will likely have to win all six to earn even a share of the Big Ten title.Still, forward Ryan Evans insists it has, for the most part, been business as usual the past two days in practice.“It’s the same old, we stick to the same routine,” he said. “We’re just preparing for Indiana.”As a redshirt freshman, Evans had a courtside view of the Badgers six-game losing streak a year ago. Based on what he’s seen, though, the 6-foot-6 forward does not expect a similar result following the Badgers’ first home loss since Jan. 27, 2009.For true freshman Mike Bruesewitz, on the other hand, losing at the Kohl Center is an entirely new concept after the Badgers went 13-for-13 to open the season at home.According to Wisconsin’s other 6-foot-6 freshman forward, the team’s reaction was much like that which he experienced as a member of his high school basketball team.“What I’ve noticed, like in high school, a lot of times when we’ve lost, usually the next day practice is pretty good, pretty competitive, people got after it,” Bruesewitz said after practice Thursday. “And that’s kind of what happened here again today.”After losing to unranked Illinois, the Badgers will face another unranked opponent in the Hoosiers, who currently sit ninth in the Big Ten conference standings.Much as they were a year ago, the Hoosiers are an athletic, yet young and inexperienced team in head coach Tom Crean’s second year at the helm.Last year, Wisconsin struggled early against Indiana on the road before dominating the second half en route to a 17-point victory at Assembly Hall. When the “Crean and Crimson” came to the Kohl Center, UW dominated throughout, cruising to an 85-61 win.Indiana enters the game with the Badgers having lost 69-52 at home to No. 13 Ohio State with Wisconsin being the second of three straight games for the Hoosiers against ranked opponents.The Badgers will have another tough guard-forward combination to deal with Saturday, albeit one with far less experience than that of Demetri McCamey and Mike Tisdale.IU sophomore guard Verdell Jones III, who scored 39 points in two games against UW a year ago, ranks second among second-year players in the Big Ten with 14.7 points per game. Alongside the 6-foot-5 Jones is 6-foot-9 freshman forward Christian Watford.A native of Birmingham, Ala., Watford leads Big Ten freshmen in scoring with 12.5 points per game, while also pulling down a team-high 5.9 rebounds per game.According to Bruesewitz, keeping IU off the glass will be a key factor in the game.“They’re the second-best offensive rebounding team in the Big Ten,” he said. “We’ve got to make sure we keep people off the glass, because second opportunities just kill teams. It deflates you defensively and inflates them. So we’ve just got to make sure we keep them off the glass, that’s probably the biggest thing.”In nine career matchups, UW head coach Bo Ryan owns a 6-3 record against Crean, with seven of those decisions coming while Crean was at the helm of in-state rival Marquette.Though the contest with Indiana lacks the marquee-nature of many of the Badgers’ recent games, Ryan’s squad recognizes the importance of getting back on the right track following a tough home loss to the Illini.“We have to get ready for the next game,” senior guard Jason Bohannon said following the Illinois loss. “We have to put this behind us and realize there is another very good team coming in on Saturday. We have to be ready to play.“It’s just the nature of the Big Ten; if you lose a game and you are still focusing on that game, you will lose the next game down the road. We have to look ahead and come ready to play.”last_img read more

Trojans head north to end regular season

first_imgThe USC men’s basketball team might have played its last game at the Galen Center in its victory over Arizona State last Sunday, but the season isn’t over. The Trojans (14-15, 9-7 Pac-12) will travel to Washington to face the Huskies on Wednesday and the Washington State Cougars on Saturday to finish the regular season before entering the Pac-12 championship next week.Last shot · Junior guard J.T. Terrell (above) and the Trojans have an outside shot at passing Arizona and Colorado in the Pac-12 standings. – Ralf Cheung | Daily Trojan Senior guard Jio Fontan sprained his wrist in the victory over the Sun Devils last Sunday but was cleared to play Wednesday. Fontan admitted that the wrist was still sore but that he hoped to be ready for tipoff. In preparing for the Huskies, the floor general was emphatic about starting strong, as the Trojans have done in big wins over Arizona and UCLA.“First and foremost, just get stops,” Fontan said. “Whenever we get stops and get out in transition, we’re very effective. If we can get stops early on in the game, we’ll put ourselves in a position to win later on. If we give up too many points in the first half, a lot of the baskets will have to come in the half court and [that will] slow everything down.”The importance of pace was echoed in practice by assistant coach Dieter Horton, who at one point stopped a drill to emphasize how opting for a bounce pass instead of a standard swing pass at the wings could interrupt rhythm and slow the delicately timed pacing of the half-court set.For veterans like senior forward Eric Wise, keeping up with the pace of the offense is just a matter of preparation. Wise, who is coming off a season-high 22 point outing in last week’s win over Arizona, will look to continue his strong play in finishing the season.“We just have to come out ready to play and warm up hard,” Wise said. “I know for me, I just try to come into every game focused. Hopefully [last week’s success] can carry over into this weekend.”Junior Dewayne Dedmon emphasized the importance of defensive intensity in facing the Huskies’ own brand of fast-paced offense.“We have to come out with the same intensity that we had the first time we played them,” Dedmon said. “We have to come out with energy and make sure that we get stops on the defensive end.”The Huskies (16-13, 8-8 Pac-12) are led by sharpshooting senior guard Scott Suggs and junior guard C.J. Wilcox. Wilcox leads Washington in scoring at 17.3 points per game, good for sixth in the Pac-12, and Suggs is shooting a respectable 38 percent from beyond the arc on the season. When asked what the Trojans must do to limit the Huskies’ tandem of wings offensively, USC interim head coach Bob Cantu started on the other side of the court.“Transition defense — they’re very good at home, they have a great crowd and a great environment,” Cantu said. “They like to push the ball and do a good job of getting out in the open court. We have to get back and defend the three-point line against Wilcox and Suggs, [and] we have to be able to take good shots on offense that don’t lead to long rebounds and easy baskets for them. If we can control tempo and execute, then I like our chances.”Despite a season filled with trials and difficulties, the Trojans have been surprisingly stellar in conference play, and they have an outside shot at securing a first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament. USC owns the tiebreaker over No. 18 Arizona (23-6, 11-6 Pac-12) and is tied with Colorado (19-9, 9-7 Pac-12) who plays host to No. 19 Oregon (23-6, 12-4 Pac-12) Thursday. A loss from Colorado and Arizona would open the door to the No. 4 seed for the Trojans, who can then secure the bye with two wins to finish the season. When asked if the thought of the first round bye was on the Trojans’ mind, Fontan eschewed bravado in favor of perspective.“At this time, I think it’s just a matter of getting better,” Fontan said. “A lot of our veteran guys like Eric Wise and Dewayne Dedmon are starting to get more comfortable in the offense, and defensively getting more accustomed to what we’re trying to do.”The Trojans have steadily improved since Cantu took over for former head coach Kevin O’Neill, and they are starting to play up to the expectations that had prefaced their season. The Pac-12 has yet to see one outright dominant team, as the top-six teams in the Pac-12 are separated by three losses. All of this considered, the prospect of missing the first-round bye didn’t fluster floor leader Fontan in the least.“If we have to play four games out in Vegas, we’ll take it,” Fontan said.last_img read more

Steelers vs. Browns brawl: A complete list of suspensions and fines, from Myles Garrett to Mason Rudolph

first_img“The way I saw it, on the final play of the game with the game in hand the way it was, it had been, we had already lost two of our players to targeting penalties from the game,’’ Rudolph said. “As I released the ball, I took a late shot. Did not agree with way he took me to the ground and my natural reaction was to get him from off on top of me. And again, I should have done a better job of handling that situation.”Other Browns, Steelers: Fined $3,507 apieceFines were announced Nov. 23 for 29 players who entered the “fighting area.”Full list of fines and suspension from the #Browns-#Steelers brawl: pic.twitter.com/8jftCj6bWy— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 23, 2019Steelers and Browns: $250,000 fines eachThe NFL fined each organization $250,000. For comparison, the Patriots received a $1 million fine for Deflategate, and the Saints paid $500,000 for the bounty program.

The third-year defensive end’s suspension will keep him out of the final six games of the 2019 season and any potential postseason games. The NFL decided to uphold the suspension despite an appeal by Garrett, who had a meeting with the commissioner’s office Nov. 20. During the meeting, Garrett reportedly accused Rudolph of using a racial slur to incite the fight. Rudolph has denied those claims. Garrett tweeted Thursday night that “I know what I heard,” although he also said that Rudolph’s alleged actions “do not excuse my lack of restraint in the moment.”The suspension is without pay and came with a fine of an undisclosed amount. Officially, the suspension is for violating “unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules, as well as fighting, removing the helmet of an opponent and using the helmet as a weapon.”He was also fined $45,623, according to NFL Network.“Last night, I made a terrible mistake,’’ Garrett said in a statement Nov. 15. “I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable. I know that we are all responsible for our actions and I can only prove my true character through my actions moving forward. I want to apologize to Mason Rudolph, my teammates, our entire organization, our fans and to the NFL. I know I have to be accountable for what happened, learn from my mistake and I fully intend to do so.”Maurkice Pouncey: Two-game suspensionSteelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey was initially suspended three games for retaliating against Garrett following the helmet swing, a penalty that was reduced to two games following an appeal by Pouncey. He was also fined $35,096.Pouncey threw multiple punches and kicked Garrett’s helmet while he was on the ground.The suspension is without pay and came with a fine of an undisclosed amount.

Officially, the suspension is for “unnecessary roughness, specifically for shoving an opposing player to the ground during an altercation.”Mason Rudolph: No suspension, $50,000 fineRudolph, who helped cause the fight by attempting to take Garrett’s helmet off, won’t be suspended but did receive a $50,000 fine, according to NFL Media.Garrett accused Rudolph of starting the fight by calling him a racial slur, which Rudolph has denied.Rudolph did not admit fault while addressing the media with a prepared statement Nov. 20. The NFL wasted little time in beginning to punish the Browns and Steelers for the wild Nov. 14 night brawl that included Cleveland defensive end Myles Garrett tearing off the helmet of Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and hitting him in the head with it.Late morning on Nov. 15, a little over 12 hours after the fight, the league handed down a series of fines and suspensions for players involved. Those penalties were largely upheld during the NFL’s weeklong review of the situation, which concluded Nov. 21.last_img read more

Atletico 1×1: Correa and Koke give life and João comes back with a goal

first_imgBelt: Return to the right starting band leaving your space up to Vitolo. With the goal of Alcacer returned to the front, where it is decisive. Currently the most decisive player above, and scored the goal of the draw by taking advantage of a pumped ball from Vrsaljko with great intelligence to get ahead of Pau and Asenjo. Shortly after he left a fantastic dribble with a control oriented to leave the central Villarreal. With the entry of João Félix he returned to the right wing. Although he does not participate with excessive continuity in the game, when he does it is decisive. He appeared to put a candy on Koke’s head in the second of the Atleti. It is very well understood with Trippier, who always looked for him inside.Saul: Inside left starting, he looked for Rubén Peña’s back constantly, very incisive in attack. With the goal of Alcácer focused his position to leave more freedom to Koke. Worker in the pressure, seeking to discomfort to the maximum the exit of Trigueros and Cazorla, recovered several dangerous balls in rival field. He saw the yellow one, but he didn’t give up on his efforts to recover the ball up. He looked for the goal with a shot that went up. Great job in the best rojiblancos minutes.Vitolo: Increasingly accustomed to playing in the lead, Alcacer’s goal returned to his left, his most natural position. He could not take advantage of a rebound in the area to overcome Asenjo when he seemed a goal sung. His header, after the stop of the palentino to Morata, also stopped the goalkeeper since it was not a good definition. He lacked precision when he could run with spaces. He left replaced by João Félix without having managed to take advantage of his opportunity as a starter. Morata: He is not yet at his speed tip after his injury. He had his first great option to see the door at 28 minutes with a volley that crashed in Asenjo, which also stopped Vitolo’s subsequent shot. Seven minutes later he tried again, with a comfortable header for the goalkeeper. Little participation in the game, sought less than usual space uncheck, probably because of his physical condition. He was not well with the ball, losing several options against not raising his head. As always, your work is essential. He left replaced in the 82nd minute without a good day at the office.João Félix and Trippier are backJoão Felix: He played the last 34 minutes at Vitolo’s place after missing four games due to injury. He started the play of Koke’s goal with a very precise game change for Trippier and sentenced the game with a left-footed shot that slipped between Asenjo’s legs. He left several very interesting unchecks where if his classmates have seen him he could stay hand in hand. Great maneuver in the area, sitting at Villarreal’s defender, but his shot hit an opponent. He saw a yellow one with a swipe. He tested Asenjo several times with distant shots, sometimes excessively individualistic, but his shots did not complicate the Palentino. Trippier: Recovered in less than a month of a pubalgia operation. He was not noticed in the least the inactivity, constantly climbing the band and looking very dangerously inside balls almost always for Correa. He participated decisively in the goal of Koke, receiving from João on the side and looking again to Correa for the center of the goal. Serious also in defense.Llorente: He had the last 10 minutes on the right to return Correa to the front. He put muscle and physique to finish the game while maintaining the advantage. Great defensive action in helping Trippier. JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Koke celebrates his goal with Correa.JESUS ​​ALVAREZ ORIHUELA (DIARIO AS) Oblak: The first Alcácer had ahead of Villarreal with a great right from outside the powerful area stuck to the stick, an impossible shot for the goal. If he could intervene at 62 minutes to leave a great hand to Alberto Moreno’s shot inside the area looking for the first stick still tied in the scoreboard. He also had to repel a distant focused shot and leave with great speed to avoid Alberto Moreno’s hand in minute 85 that could put Villarreal in the game.Vrsaljko: The Croatian has been taking the place on the right side, although before Villarreal was already waiting Trippier, recovered at a meteoric speed of his pubalgia. Constants up the right wing, from a ball pumped to the Croatian area came Correa’s tie, very fast to get his shipment. He has been growing in audacity with the parties and did not hesitate to face Alberto Moreno every time he had the opportunity. He left after 56 minutes for the Englishman after leaving a good game. Savic: He got to clear the center of Gerard Moreno, but his header hit Alcácer to make a great goal. Currently he has established himself as Felipe’s partner and as long as he continues with his good performance he will complicate Giménez’s return to eleven. Very fast to anticipate the balls looking for the rival front. His cuts were very important in the melee when Atlético sought pressure up, since they were practically hand in hand.Felipe: As always when playing with Savic, he placed himself on the left side of the center of the back, an area where he is most uncomfortable at the start of the ball since he has trouble using his less good leg. Like Savic, he had to be very attentive to the constant movements of Alcácer and knew how to constantly advance. Very powerful above in the moves to Villarreal’s stationary ball. I gave it: Villarreal placed Gerard Moreno in his band to complicate the Brazilian much in defense. In attack he always sought to double Saul first and Vitolo later, although his centers did not lead to danger. With Gerard further he felt comfortable in the game. He completed his second consecutive game after several substitutions in previous meetings.Thomas: Pivot of the team, left some good ball behind his back looking for the unchecking of the sides. However, in the first half he did not stand out when breaking lines or the distant shot, two of his great virtues. He had difficulties before the defensive framework of Villarreal, with the lines close together, very closed and with three quality players in the middle. But in the second part with Saul by his side he was growing in recovery, stealing very high. Great game finale, where he even left some driving from behind with a lot of power to lift the fans from his seat. Koke: His return to the team has been essential to recover the good feelings, this time with goal and capital participation in the third. The meeting began in the double pivot to give fluidity to the rojiblanco game. With the score against, he moved to the right with full freedom to find the ball in the middle. In a climb along the side came the center that Morata was about to take advantage of with a volley that stopped Asenjo. With the changes he moved to the left, but maintaining his freedom of intervention with the ball. He arrived perfect from behind to make the 2-1 with a great header to the center of Correa and in his pressure above he recovered for the goal of João Félix. He is always close to the ball and danger.center_img Atletico returned to LaLiga after his great victory in Champions over Liverpool with the only novelty of Vitolo in the eleven in the place of the injured Lemar. On this occasion led by Mono Burgos from the bench, Since Simeone was sanctioned, Atlético started with Koke in the double pivot, Correa on the right and Vitolo up, but Alcacer’s goal changed the approach. Saul in the middle, Vitolo on the left, Koke on the right and Correa on top, where he scored the tie. In the second half Thomas and Saul managed to prevail in the middle, stealing very high and the João Félix and Trippier entry, already recovered from their respective injuries, he reactivated the team in attack, with a fantastic play for the goal of Koke initiated by the Portuguese and continued by the Englishman who delivered the ball to the assistant Correa. João Félix himself made the third with a far left shot. last_img read more
