TENNIS : SU preps for opening weekend slate highlighted by rivalry game with Georgetown


first_img Published on January 26, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 Facebook Twitter Google+ Luke Jensen doesn’t mask his feelings about Georgetown. The Syracuse tennis coach says whenever he sees the Hoyas in an airport, his mood turns sour.‘You walk into the airport and see them,’ Jensen said, ‘you just don’t like them.’The Orange and the Hoyas have a heated history. And one year after the Orange dominated Georgetown in a 7-0 shutout, the more talented Orange will play its rival in the finale of a three-match opening weekend. Aside from the bad-blood which will surface against Georgetown, SU will take on Navy and Maryland to start the season.The opening weekend will provide competition for the Orange as well as a Big East opener very early in the season in the form of the rivalry game. But after winning its last 14 regular-season Big East contests, SU junior Alessondra Parra sees the Orange itself as SU’s greatest opponent.‘I think that if we play well, then we’re going to do well against all 3 teams,’ Parra said. ‘Mentally, if we’re not in it, we’re only going to trip up.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJensen is not looking past the season opener with Navy, even if the Big East opener with the Hoyas is looming two days later. The meeting will mark the first time the Orange will take on Navy under Jensen. The coach emphasized the fact that the Cadets are strong-willed individuals. It something he expects they will translate to the tennis court from their day-to-day Annapolis-bred determination.‘To be honest, especially when you’re playing a Cadet kid – Army, Air Force, Navy – this is a different type of kid,’ Jensen said. ‘This kid is committed to putting their life on the line for this country. So you’re getting a very determined individual. No matter what their ranking was coming in, no matter what the situation is. … They bite their tails off.’Emily Harman isn’t underestimating the cadets either. The junior said she anticipates Navy will be feisty and fighting the favored Orange every step of the way.Jensen feels that Navy’s focus makes them a perfect season opener. He and the rest of the team know that to get to Maryland and Georgetown, they must get through Navy.‘This isn’t the sisters of the poor,’ Jensen said. ‘This is the real deal, man. But we need that. We need that focus. I like the fact that we’re playing that kind of character in a team because we need to focus on No. 1. That gets us to No. 2.’The Orange will face Navy Friday in Annapolis, Md., and will then trip to College Park, Md., for a noon match against the Terrapins. SU will then return to Drumlins Tennis Center to face the rival Hoyas at 11 a.m. on Sunday.And though Georgetown was unable to win a single match against the Orange last season, there is mutual discontent.Harman shared her coach’s sentiments. Her mindset too turns sour when referring to the Hoyas.‘We have a history with Georgetown,’ Harman said. ‘We don’t like them. We want to beat them. We have a competitive run with them, where we always want to come out with a 7-0 win.’Harman, as always, is aiming for the shutout. But she and Jensen know that just because they blanked the Hoyas last year it’s not going to be a sure thing this year. Especially coming off a whirlwind weekend tour to kick start the season.‘It doesn’t matter what happened the year before,’ Jensen said. ‘It doesn’t matter which recruits came in. It’s a rivalry match. You circle the calendar.’sebail01@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more

Roberson continues growth as starting forward heading into Virginia Tech matchup


first_img Published on February 3, 2015 at 12:15 am Contact Jesse: jcdoug01@syr.edu | @dougherty_jesse Before beating Wake Forest on Jan. 13, Syracuse’s forwards lined up behind the 3-point line and, like they do before most games, staged a pseudo dunk contest.B.J. Johnson swooped in from the top of the key and threw down a left-handed windmill. Rakeem Christmas finished an around-the-back-360 slam that drew “Oohs” and “Ahhs” from the baseline crowd. Walk-on Doyin Akintobi-Adeyeye tossed the ball off the backboard and dunked it two-handed, drawing laughs from the guards who stretched near midcourt.Then Tyler Roberson dribbled twice and lightly laid in a layup off the backboard. No dunk. All fundamentals.“That’s just me,” Roberson said, laughing, after the WFU game. “I’m laid back, quieter. I guess I like to save it for the game.”At the beginning of SU’s season, Roberson was the same in games as he is before them — passive and largely ineffective with the ball. Now, as Syracuse (14-7, 5-3 Atlantic Coast) hosts Virginia Tech (9-12, 1-7) for a must-win 9 p.m. contest on Tuesday night, the Orange can’t afford a down game from its de facto starting power forward.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRoberson has scored in double-figures in SU’s last three games, and his in-season transformation into a high-post threat is coming at a critical time.“He’s got a great opportunity and he’s really done a great job on the boards,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said on the ACC coaches’ teleconference Monday. “… If he gets an open look and knocks it down or makes a good play, and he’s done that the last two games. That’s important for us.”The 6-foot-8 forward from Roselle Catholic (New Jersey) High School is used to shifting roles.Roselle Catholic head coach Dave Boff said that Roberson was “strictly a back-to-the-basket player” as a sophomore in high school, but smaller teams started to pack it in against the Lions. Boff taught Roberson to expand his game to the high post and the forward ascended up the national recruiting rankings as a junior.This season, Roberson began the year starting on the wing for the Orange before an injury sidelined him for three games. He resurfaced as a backup forward after the injury and, after Chris McCullough went down for the season at the start of ACC play, is back in the staring lineup as SU’s power forward.Now Roberson’s role is simple: provide enough offense to alleviate the pressure on Christmas, and do so without the consistent hesitation that mired the first half of his season.“I think I can do this,” Roberson said of the Orange’s increased dependency on him. “I just need to be confident in my jump shot and not think twice when I’m in the right spot.”Roberson played more than 30 minutes just once in 10 nonconference games. Conversely, he’s played less than 30 minutes in just one of the Orange’s eight ACC games and teams have dared him to score in the increased time. In 18 games, he’s playing 27.3 minutes per contest and averaging 7.4 points with 7.1 rebounds.On Jan. 24, Miami used a 4-5 trap to smother Christmas, with Tonye Jekiri leaving Roberson wide open to double-team Christmas in the post. Christmas scored five points in the first half but Roberson tallied eight, which forced Hurricanes head coach Jim Larranaga to switch to a 1-5 trap that used a guard to double-team Christmas instead of a big man.Syracuse lost the game, but Roberson’s first-half productivity caught Miami’s attention and led to 18 points for Christmas in the second.Two days later against North Carolina, Roberson saw little pressure throughout the game and scored eight second-half points to keep the Orange within striking distance in an eventual 10-point loss.“We need Tyler to be good when he gets the ball,” Christmas said after the Miami game. “It opens things up for me and everyone else.”And while Roberson turned in one of his best performances against the Tar Heels — scoring his second-highest total of the season with 13 points and dishing out a season-high five assists with no turnovers — he also grabbed a meek three rebounds and fouled out.He was unhappy with the incomplete performance and said that his next game, which comes against the Hokies, could be the one where he puts it all together.“It’s hard to get Tyler to say too much, if anything at all,” SU forward Michael Gbinije said, adding that Roberson is by far the quietest player on the team. “… You just wait for it to happen with him.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Viterbi lab shoots to send rocket into space


first_imgWarren Poh | Daily TrojanRocket man · Neil Tewksbury, a freshman majoring in mechanical engineering, works on the nose cone of a rocket at the Viterbi lab.The Rocket Propulsion Laboratory of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering allows students of all experience levels to participate in design teams where they complete projects for competitions.Their ultimate goal, though, is to create the first university-built rocket to go to space.Each year, the team aims to make improvements on their rocket from previous years to increase its distance and height. “Our goal, to be the first university to go to space, is an ambitious goal. It’s a feat that takes faithful people,” Chief Composite Engineer Roberto Lopez said, in an email to the Daily Trojan. “The kind of people rocket lab attracts are internally motivated and excited about going to space.”Members of RPL can work with a number of sub-teams that specialize in order to work more efficiently. Chief Propulsion Engineer Damian Balla co-heads the propulsion team, whose main function is to design and build motors. Members in that sub-team focus on improving the motors to gain more altitude by collecting data on the performance of the propellant.Over the remaining semester, Balla and his team will find ways to improve the propellant. “We have several performance improvements to make to the propellant, which include making denser propellant that burns longer and has a different ‘thrust profile’ which allows us to gain massive amounts of performance,” Balla said in an email to the Daily Trojan.Last semester, RPL came in with the goal of testing their newest rocket, Fathom II, on the ground and in the air successfully in September. The plan proved too ambitious when the front end of the rocket burned through during static firing. “This made us push back our launch date until we had a working case design,” Lopez said. “After redesigning, we came back a month later only to have the same thing happen on the aft end of the vehicle.”While the first two tests were demoralized, Balla said that they were able to make progress with new member training and building hardware. Despite these setbacks, the team was able to regroup by November and attempt a third test. This time, the case they tested did not burn through. “With this new qualified design, we have built another case and attached fins to it getting ready for our much deserved flight March 4,” Lopez said.Balla said that the ability for RPL to press on in spite of hardships is emblematic of USC. “The ‘Fight On’ motto is extremely important for us because after all, it is rocket science, and it’s extremely difficult,” Balla said. “Because we continue to make improvements and iterate our designs at a rapid pace, we are able to truly ‘Fight On’ and achieve amazing things.”Lopez also believes it is the Trojan spirit that makes it possible for RPL to continue to make progress. “RPL produces engineers that are skillful and ambitious like Trojans. At RPL, we like to do things ourselves,” Lopez said. “We are more than just designers. We are builders. We machine all the metallic components on our manual mill and lathes. From this attitude, we gain valuable hands-on skills that help us design better components.”last_img read more

Aduana hit with two-match home ban and fined GH₵3000 for crowd trouble


first_imgDormaa based Aduana Stars have been struck with a two game home ban, plus a GH₵3000 fine, after crowd trouble in their matchweek 7 clash between themselves and Medeama at the Nana Agyeman Badu I Park.Aduana were initially given a temporary ban by the GFA Disciplinary Committee after the incident, which saw their home fans invade the pitch and hurl missiles at the Medeama technical area.Angry Aduana fans also attacked the referee, who had to be escorted out of the match venue by the police.The Dormaa based side will now serve an extra one game ban, having already played their previous home game at the the Baba Yara against Bechem United due to the initial temporary ban.The Disciplinary Committee’s ruling said, “In view of the plea of Guilt and mitigation put in by the club before the Disciplinary Committee, the club is hereby handed a two-match ban from using the Nana Agyeman Badu Park, Dormaa as its home venue.“In this respect, the temporary home ban imposed on the club by the Normalisation Committee of the Ghana Football Association would be lifted after Aduana Stars serves its next home ban.“Additionally, the club is fined GH₵3000 payable to the GFA within 14 days from the date of communication of this decision.“The Club shall be liable to a further fine of GH₵2000 if it fails to furnish the Disciplinary Committee with evidence of actions it claims to have embarked upon to avoid reoccurrence of such incidents at its home venue, including evidence of a complaint lodged with the police.”last_img read more

Lakers are hurting up front; Pau Gasol, Chris Kaman will be game-time decisions


first_imgTalking BynumNick Young hasn’t followed Andrew Bynum’s lone season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He also said he wasn’t aware that Cleveland suspended Bynum indefinitely Saturday for undisclosed conduct detrimental to the team.But the mere mention of Bynum’s name prompted Young to laugh as he recalled their lone season together last year with the Philadelphia 76ers, a year that featured Bynum sitting out the entire time because of lingering knee issues.“He just does his own thing,” Young told this newspaper. “Bynum is going to be Bynum no matter where he goes. He doesn’t care what people say or think about him.” Young mentioned Bynum’s eccentric hairstyles and worsening his left knee injury while going bowling in the middle of the season. Still, Young argued that Bynum received unfair criticism from Sixers fans who believed that he didn’t show enough interest in overcoming his injury.“He’s hurt. He’s somebody who has been playing games with bad knees,” Young said. “He’s trying to get back each game. In Philly, they’re tough. They were on Bynum everywhere he walked.”Bynum helped the Lakers to two NBA championships through seven seasons before being traded in 2012 to Philadelphia in a four-team, 12-player deal that brought them Dwight Howard. “He tried to get back, but he wasn’t right last year,” Young said of Bynum. “It was probably good for him to sit out.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Within a week, the Lakers went from having too many frontcourt players for coach Mike D’Antoni to juggle to suddenly having very little at all.Both centers Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman are considered game-time decisions when the Lakers (13-17) host the Philadelphia 76ers (8-20) tonight at Staples Center.Kaman suffered a moderate sprain in his left ankle in the final minute of the Lakers’ 105-103 loss Friday to the Utah Jazz. Gasol sat out two of the past four games because of an upper respiratory infection. D’Antoni said neither of them practiced on Saturday.Gasol hasn’t spoken to reporters since a visit with an eye, nose and throat specialist on Thursday showed his respiratory illness worsened. Kaman didn’t talk on Saturday, either, but he appeared downtrodden about both his injury and sitting in 13 of the Lakers’ 30 games.center_img “I have no approach,” Kaman said Friday after posting 19 points and 10 rebounds in the Lakers’ loss to Utah. “I get shuffled around so when it’s my turn, I try to take advantage of the opportiunities I’m given and it’s not easy.”D’Antoni offered some encouraging words about Kaman’s health.“It’s pretty favorable,” D’Antoni said. “He feels better about it. The swelling’s not too bad.”If neither Gasol or Kaman play, Jordan Hill will likely start along with Shawne Williams. Robert Sacre would likely receive significant minutes off the bench. Both Hill and Sacre stayed after practice on Saturday working on post drills with Lakers player development coach Larry Lewis.“You just have to stay mentally prepared,” Sacre said. “Obviously it’s tough. You never know when you’re going to go in. But you have to make sure you’re ready to go. When your name is called, you have to be prepared.”last_img read more

Chelsea frustrated in Everton stalemate


first_imgConte has already conceded his inconsistent team won’t be able to defend the Premier League title and this was another frustrating afternoon for the Italian as the Blues squandered their territorial dominance.Chelsea remain third and are 13 points behind leaders Manchester City, who play Bournemouth later on Saturday.Initially, it looked like being an encouraging day for Conte as Chelsea quickly established a pattern of complete dominance.It took an impressive double goal-line clearance by veteran defender Phil Jagielka to deny the visitors what would have been a deserved lead.The Everton captain read the situation perfectly as Marcos Alonso’s cross flew through the home area after 10 minutes, reacting sharply to block Tiemoue Bakayoko’s effort.Jagielka then responded even more impressively as Willian looked certain to convert the rebound, the defender positioning himself to keep out the follow-up effort in similar fashion.Yet for all their superiority in those opening stages, Chelsea struggled to carve out many meaningful chances to trouble home keeper Jordan Pickford.After 20 minutes, Cuco Martina was booked for a blatant foul on Victor Moses on the edge of the Everton area but Willian sent his free-kick sailing well over.And while the passing and movement of Willian, Pedro and Eden Hazard was pleasing on the eye and threatening at times, Everton stuck to their defensive duties well. It was easy to see the impact Allardyce has made since his arrival at Goodison Park although Everton were not helped by the pre-match loss of in-form Wayne Rooney due to illness.In the absence of the 10-goal forward, Everton’s attacking play was likely to be hindered and so it proved, with Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois a virtual spectator.– Major reshuffle –A promising counter-attack, just after the half-hour, ended with Morgan Schneiderlin sending away Tom Davies but his strike from 25 yards was always drifting away from goal.And before the interval, Dominic Calvert-Lewin showed great persistence to strip Andreas Christiansen of the ball and advance into the area where his shot was blocked by Antonio Rudiger.But Chelsea responded in kind when Bakayoko broke up an Everton attack on the halfway line before playing Pedro clear for a powerful shot which drew a spectacular one-handed save from Pickford.Allardyce made a major reshuffle at the interval, bringing on Sandro and Ashley Williams as he switched to three central defenders, a move that proved something of a gamble when he lost Idrissa Gueye to injury within five minutes of the restart and was forced to use his final substitute.By then, Chelsea had already threatened Pickford’s goal, with the keeper saving well from Pedro’s drive before Williams did well to block Alonso’s effort.There was some anxiety for the visitors when Hazard was hacked down and required lengthy treatment, with Michael Keane booked for the foul.But the Belgian quickly shook off the effects of the injury and was soon forcing Pickford into another fine diving save after receiving a pass from Willian.Williams got his head to Victor Moses’ fierce 75th minute cross, deflecting it onto the Everton bar before it flew out of harm’s way.There was also a late chance for substitute Cesc Fabregas when Jagielka stuck out a foot and deflected his powerful, long-range shot just wide.Share on: WhatsApp Liverpool, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea wasted a chance to move level on points with second placed Manchester United as Everton maintained their improvement under Sam Allardyce in a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park on Saturday.It marked a sixth game unbeaten for Everton under former England boss Allardyce, but Chelsea’s failure to convert possession into goals will not have pleased Blues manager Antonio Conte.last_img read more
