MBB : Joseph leads Syracuse to blowout victory over DePaul

admin No Comments

first_img Comments Note to our readers: In an effort to cut costs during a non-print publication period, The Daily Orange Board of Directors voted after much deliberation to cut travel expenses to the DePaul game. The decision was based on the paper’s tight budget and made in order to ensure costs for later sports travel could be met. The Daily Orange continues its pledge of providing objective and original coverage of Syracuse athletics.In Syracuse’s last game, Kris Joseph was held scoreless for the first time since his freshman year. But on Sunday, he made sure that wouldn’t happen again, scoring early and often.The senior forward scored in a multitude of ways. When Syracuse broke the DePaul press — as it often did in the first half — Joseph knocked down a wide-open 3 to put the Orange up by seven midway through the first half. He finished a fast break off a defensive rebound by slamming home a pass from Brandon Triche.And he had success driving to the hoop, as well. Joseph’s 22 points and seven rebounds were indicative of the dominant performance by the Orange. Syracuse was on point from the field, shooting 19-of-29 (65.5 percent) in building a 19-point halftime lead. The No. 1 Orange (15-0, 2-0 Big East) cruised from there to an 87-68 victory over the Blue Demons (9-4, 0-1) on Sunday at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill. The Orange fell behind in the opening minutes as DePaul jumped out to a 7-2 lead, but went on a 15-2 run to gain a cushion and never trailed again.SU snapped DePaul’s five-game win streak and blew out a Big East opponent for the second straight game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I think the first half we did a good job against their defense, their pressure,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said in his postgame press conference, obtained via email from an SU athletics official. ‘… Our defense was really good in the first half and that was the game. The second half was just trading baskets.’Five players were in double figures for SU, who shot 58.6 percent from the field for the game. Joseph led the way with 22 points, but C.J. Fair had a season-high 16 points, Dion Waiters added 13, Fab Melo scored 12 — along with six blocks — and Brandon Triche had 10.Syracuse got a major contribution from Joseph, who failed to score a point in SU’s 75-49 win over Seton Hall on Wednesday. He made it look much easier against the Blue Demons, who used a full-court pressure defense for most of the game to try and slow down SU. At times, it worked, evidenced by SU’s 12 first-half turnovers.But many times it backfired, leading to easy baskets for the Orange.Scoop Jardine, Waiters and Triche were forced into some tough passes as the Blue Demons defense tried trapping them in the backcourt. But most of the time, they got the ball out.Early in the game, Joseph received a pass as SU broke out of the press and drove to the hoop for a layup. He missed the attempt but made his own follow to give SU its first lead, 9-7. Later, Jardine threw a long pass upcourt out of the press, and James Southerland finished inside, putting SU up 29-18.‘We got a lot of layups,’ Boeheim said. ‘Whenever you get pressed, they’re going to get some steals. They’re gambling. You’re going to make a couple mistakes. … I thought overall, we handled it well. We made a couple bad turnovers but that happens.’Syracuse got plenty of points in transition as it built its lead, many of them also coming off defensive rebounds. SU has struggled at times this season to end possessions on the defensive boards, but a strong effort rebounding allowed the Orange to get out and run.Joseph got his points quietly, accumulating them across the first half as SU built a large lead. The Orange broke the press again about 10 minutes into the first half, getting Joseph a wide-open look on the left wing, and he hit a 3 to put the Orange up 22-15.The rest of the team joined him in a scorching-hot first half for SU shooting-wise. Syracuse led 45-26 at the break.In the second half it was much of the same. The Orange and Blue Demons traded baskets for much of the final 20 minutes, and the lead didn’t really fluctuate.DePaul forward Cleveland Melvin managed to get his points, finishing with 23 and eight rebounds, but the Blue Demons’ second-leading scorer, Brandon Young, failed to make a shot. He came in averaging 16.1 points per game, but shot 0-of-8 from the field.The Orange extended its lead to as large as 28 in the second half, easily defeating the team picked this preseason to finish last in the Big East.‘We haven’t played the hard teams that we have to play,’ Boeheim said. ‘We haven’t proven anything yet. We’ve beaten people that we probably should have.’mcooperj@syr.edu  Published on January 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjrcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Villanova quarterback Robertson exposes Syracuse’s defensive inefficiencies despite Orange win

first_img Related Stories SNEAKING BY: Fake-field goal TD pass helps Syracuse past Villanova after Hunt’s ejectionQ&A: Villanova linebacker Lucas discusses being punched by HuntGallery: Syracuse takes on Villanova in Carrier Dome to open season Published on August 30, 2014 at 3:09 am Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Villanova head coach Andy Talley thought his team was running out of steam. That’s why, after quarterback John Robertson threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Gary Underwood to pull the Wildcats within one in the second leg of overtime, Talley kept his offense on the field. Robertson took the snap out of the shotgun and shuffled in place, but the Syracuse front collapsed on the pocket and squandered Talley’s roll of the dice. “It was a QB run,” Robertson said of the game’s last play. “It was a good designed play, it just got blown up.”Talley had good reason to put the ball in his quarterback’s hands. Before Syracuse (1-0) used a fake-field goal pass by punter Riley Dixon to ultimately beat Villanova (0-1), 27-26, in the Carrier Dome on Friday night, Robertson was driving the game toward a different conclusion. The dual-threat quarterback counteracted Syracuse’s blitzes with his legs and did even more damage with his arm, a performance that was only overshadowed by the Wildcats’ overall misfortune. Robertson finished 16-for-27 with 199 yards and a passing touchdown while adding another 115 — the most of any Villanova rusher — on the ground. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“What we tried to do was we tried to spiral him, but that was hard,” said SU safety Durell Eskridge through some laughter after the game. “He’s a very good quarterback. Coach Talley and his team put together a very good offense, and we tried to go out there and spiral him. “But he was out there making plays and we just had to play football.”That’s what it came down to — just one play that pitted Robertson against a front seven that sniffed it all out. But for most of the game, when Syracuse wasn’t sacking him or stuffing him for the win, Robertson exposed some of the Orange’s defensive weaknesses. Facing a Football Championship Subdivision offensive line, SU’s defensive line had no problem generating pressure. Yet wrapping Robertson up proved a much harder task. When the pocket tightened up, Robertson hightailed it to the edge or danced inside to give himself enough room to unleash one of his 27 throws. A lot of it was improvisation, but some was part of the plan. “When you blitz a team like us with (Robertson’s) running ability, you have to really spy him and know where he is going to be,” Talley said. “They ran past the line and he was going north and south, and he kept us in the game with his feet.”The space that Robertson created for himself in and around the pocket also opened up space downfield. When plays broke down in the backfield, the Syracuse cornerbacks and safeties had a hard time sticking with their assignments. And it didn’t get better as the game went on.Every Robertson scramble opened more holes than the last, before his last attempt fell a bit short. “They’ve got all types of trick plays, different plays that they run that throw you out of your defense, try to mess with your eyes and knock you off your keys,” Eskridge said. “There wasn’t really anything we could do but play the defense that our coach taught us and give 110 percent effort.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Banged up Badgers look to get back on track

admin No Comments

first_imgAfter starting the season 10-2, the Badgers men’s tennis team has been besieged by several significant injuries and has lost its last seven matches, including six straight in B1G play.Wisconsin, now ranked No. 75 in the nation, will try to get back on track this weekend when it plays host to the No. 58 Purdue Boilermakers on Friday night and the No. 56 Indiana Hoosiers on Sunday afternoon.“[The Purdue match] comes at the perfect time,” senior Alexander Kostanov said. “We play at home so we cannot complain about anything, or make any excuses, which will allow us to focus and will allow us to beat them.”The most notable injury affecting the team has been to senior captain Billy Bertha. Back problems have kept him out of the lineup for the past three matches.With only six players available, the practices have taken on a different feeling and have served a new purpose.“You obviously want to make sure that you have enough guys available for the matches so I’m not pushing them as hard if they’re injured,” Wisconsin head coach Greg Van Emburgh said. “It’s getting towards the end of the season so you want to make sure you’re staying on course while being injury free.”And while the injuries have been changing the Badgers’ practice structure, it hasn’t exactly interfered with the team’s doubles’ play. So far this season, Wisconsin has won the doubles point in five of seven matches in Big Ten play.“The injuries haven’t affected our doubles that much because we’ve won a lot of doubles,” freshman Oskar Wikberg said. “There are only seven guys on the team to begin [with] so we practice with each other all the time so [the new doubles pairings] haven’t made a big difference. In singles, however, it is a little different because with Billy injured, everyone has to move up a spot, which makes it more difficult to win.”The Badgers have a 57-18 all-time record against Purdue and have won the past 10 meetings with the Boilermakers.“Last year, we won at their place,” Kostanov said. “We were down 3-0 and came back to win 4-3 so we know that it’s going to be a strong match, but we also know that we’re going to be stronger than them.”That type of confidence going into a match is something that the Badgers have lost since the beginning of the season – and they admit that if they’re going to make any noise in the postseason, then they’re going to have to get it back.“We were off to a great start and had some great wins,” Van Emburgh said. “But, we’re playing a young group and when you lose a little confidence. Sometimes it’s tough when you have a strength of schedule like us where eight or nine of the teams in the Big Ten are ranked, but we have to get it back.”Wikberg supported coach Van Emburgh’s statement pointing to when the team lost two matches in a row against Michigan and Michigan State earlier in the season. “That’s where we lost the confidence,” Wikberg said. “We have to get back to being confident, that’s the key moving forward.”If the Badgers are able to get some of their confidence back in Friday night’s matchup, they’ll look to use it heading into Sunday’s match against a very talented and deep Indiana squad.“They’re a good team,” coach Van Emburgh said of the Hoosiers. “They’re pretty solid with good depth and good players so we have to go out there and be confident and execute our opportunities when they’re there in order to win some tennis matches.”Indiana freshman standout, Sam Monette, holds a record of 25-5 record this season, including a respectable 2-3 against nationally ranked opponents. Monette and his partner, Isade Juneau, are the ranked No. 21 in the nation for doubles.“It’s not easy to get back on track [against the Purdue and Indiana] but hopefully we can bounce back and get on track with some wins,” Van Emburgh said. “I told the guys that from here on out that we’re not going to have an easy match and you have to be ready to go and believe that you can beat these teams.”last_img read more

first_imgAs Onda Cero advanced, Carles Pérez will travel to Italy on Tuesday to sign the contract that will join Rome in the coming seasons. The giallorosso club has seduced the striker and has reached an agreement with Barça, which he will pay 13 million euros for the transfer. In principle, and according to the statements of Petrachi, sports director of Rome, no repurchase option for the azulgrana. Carles Pérez will be Barça’s third casualty in this winter market after Todibo and Aleñá, assigned to Schalke and Betis respectively. Setién told the player on Friday that they did not have him while the club was already negotiating with the Romanian club, where Carles Pérez will not have easy play with extremes like Kluivert or Under. Barça still does not incorporate a single player in the winter market and has already lost three.Carles Pérez, given as an example of love for some colors recently, is already another merchandise in the history of the Barça club. Barça’s treatment of the player has surprised Carles Pérez himself, his surroundings and the partner.last_img read more

Arsenal Fan in Monrovia Dies after Chelsea Victory

first_imgA Liberian man, who collapsed while watching Arsenal losing to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, was pronounced dead by doctors after he was rushed to a local clinic in Monrovia.According to eyewitnesses, shortly after the game ended in favor of Chelsea with 2 over Arsenal, the elderly man, only identified as Fofana, fell to the ground.“Fofana apparently had a heart attack when the final whistle sounded,” an eyewitness told this newspaper, following the stampede that ensued after the match, at a video club on Benson and Lynch Street in Central Monrovia.The deceased, a resident of Clara Town, was a professional tailor, who worked as president of the Fofana Tailoring Shop on Benson Street, neighbors said.Paramedics, who arrived at the video club around 2p.m. and took the man to the clinic, confirmed his death.An eyewitness, who claimed to be a Chelsea fan, said Mr. Fofana’s death was a tragedy, because he was a loyal member of Arsenal Club. It was also reported that a van conveying Mr. Fofana’s body to a local mosque was reportedly involved in a crash on Broad Street, Crown Hill.Meanwhile, in keeping with the Moslem tradition, the remains of Fofana were reportedly buried yesterday morning. On the game itself Coach Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his players, following Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge Saturday.The Blues scored twice in the second half, through Kurt Zouma and Eden Hazard, to secure a much-needed three points, and it was no more than the team deserved having been much the better side.The visitors had both Gabriel and Santi Cazorla sent off, but Mourinho preferred to focus on the qualities of his own side.“It was a very good performance, a deserved victory, I’m happy with the performance and points,” Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s Manager said after the match.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
