On the penultimate day of the competition, India finished with just two silver in the Greco-Roman wrestling even as Prem missed out on a bronze medal finish. Gurpreet had to be satisfied with a second spot after being handed a 0-8 defeat by Hyeonwoo Kim of Korea in the final of the 77kg category. However, on his way to the final, Gurpreet put up an impressive show, thrashing Bakhit Sharif K Badr of Qatar 10-0 in the quarterfinals before eking out a narrow 6-5 victory over Tamerlan Shadukayev of Kazakhstan in the last four round.     In 87kg, Sunil Kumar stormed into the final after prevailing over Azamat Kustubayev of Kazakhstan 6-6 in his semifinal bout, while he had earlier beaten Tokhirdzhon Okhonov of Tajikistan 14-7 in the last eight stages. But just like Gurpreet, Sunil too failed to clinch the top spot as he went down to Hossein Ahmad Nouri of Iran in the title clash.RELATED     Prem, who was another Indian wrestler in contention for a medal after he made the bronze-medal play-off in the 130kg class despite going down to Muminjon Abdullaev of Uzbekistan in the quarterfinals, could not finish on the podium.     Prem had made it to the playoffs after Abdullaev reached the gold medal round. Prem lost to Kazakhstan’s Damir Kuzembayev in the third-fourth place fight. Earlier in the day, India’s campaign got over in the 55kg and 63kg weight divisions when Manjeet and Vikram Krushnath Kurade lost their respective quarterfinal bouts to bow out of the tournament.last_img read more

Malachi Richardson continues hot streak in win over Notre Dame


first_imgMalachi Richardson was still thinking about the emotions of the play before when his 3-pointer from straight-on extended a far-from-tenuous Syracuse lead to 24 with 8:22 to play.He was thinking about getting his arms tangled with Notre Dame’s Matt Ryan. He thought about Ryan pushing him and he thought about the double-technical foul that was assessed after bumping Ryan with his body before the two were separated.Richardson pulled up just 11 seconds later, on the next time down the court, and swished the 3 to the roar of a crowd that wanted revenge as much as he did.“I knew it was going in before I shot it,” Richardson said.Richardson scored 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting to follow up his 23-point night at No. 13 Virginia just four days earlier. His emotional moment was the highlight of Syracuse’s otherwise drama-less, 81-66 win over No. 25 Notre Dame on Thursday in the Carrier Dome.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“That was a frustration shot,” Michael Gbinije said. “He was looking to get back at them. That’s the only way he could have done that. It helped us out.Richardson wasn’t as much of an offensive factor for the Orange as it jumped out to an 17-point lead thanks to a 23-1 run, but his offense continued as it has throughout conference play. He hit a 3 in the first half to make it 31-14. He connected on a four-point play to end any idea of a Notre Dame rally after the Irish cut the lead to 12 in the second half.With two minutes left, he went one-on-one to the basket, and finished at the rim with ease, long after the Fighting Irish had any fight in them.But his best part of the night was the way he responded to the worst part. Teammates told him that the best way to get back at Ryan was to knock down a shot, dunk on him, do whatever it takes to get yourself going.And it didn’t take long for him to answer that call.“I was already a little frustrated at the choppiness that the kid did,” Richardson said. “It happens, and I moved on from it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 28, 2016 at 10:21 pm Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3center_img Related Stories Syracuse smashes No. 25 Notre Dame in 81-66 upsetFast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 81-66 win over No. 25 Notre DameGrade Syracuse’s performance against Notre Dame and vote for the player of the gameSyracuse community reacts to upset win over No. 25 Notre Damelast_img read more
