UW scoreless in senior day finale

first_imgThe Wisconsin women’s soccer team refuses to go down without a fight. The Badgers kept their Big Ten tournament hopes alive this weekend with a 2-0 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes. Heading into Friday’s matchup with Iowa, Wisconsin sat in 10th place, five points behind Northwestern for the final tournament berth. With only three games remaining — and a potential of nine points to be earned — the Badgers knew it was win or go home.However, following Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Minnesota, Wisconsin is no longer in control of its own destiny.In Sunday’s matchup, Wisconsin failed to come out strong and the first half saw the Badgers struggle to maintain possession offensively and fight to stop the Gophers’ offensive attack.”I thought we came out flat,” head coach Paula Wilkins said of the loss. “As a coach, I need to do a better job of motivating them, especially in such a big game.”Minnesota scored the eventual game-winner in the 40th minute on a header off the crossbar by forward Lindsey Schwartz. For Schwartz, the goal increased her team-leading total to eight and was her second game-winner in as many contests.Despite the goal late in the first half, the Badgers did not give up. The team came out with increased intensity in the second half and fought hard to the end, firing up seven shots in the period.”I think everyone put it out there,” senior co-captain Ann Eshun said. “Everyone worked hard, but we could not come up with it. We all wanted to get a win, especially on senior day.”For Wisconsin, the team’s lack of offensive output was once again its downfall. In addition to failing to net a goal, the Badgers did not even force the Gophers’ goalkeeper to make a save.”We didn’t even get a shot-on-goal,” Wilkins said. “When we get our opportunities on offense, we need to be able to finish them off. We did not do it again today and it is something that we need to go back and refocus on this week.”Friday was a different story, as the Badgers came out strong against the Hawkeyes, netting the eventual game-winner in the 20th minute off the foot of midfielder Krysta Liskevych — a goal that took a moment to register with the sophomore.”[Krysta] didn’t really realize that she had scored at first,” junior forward Taylor Walsh said. “Either way, she will take what she can get; that goal was big for her confidence level.”Wisconsin maintained its strong play throughout the first half, as the defense did not allow Iowa to post a shot-on-goal in the half. “[The first goal] gave us a bit of momentum,” Wilkins said. “Anytime you can keep the momentum going [through the end of the half] with a lead, it is very important.”In the second half, the Badgers and Hawkeyes battled for nearly 37 minutes before junior forward Tricia Krombach tallied the final goal for Wisconsin, her fourth of the season.”Tricia played really well tonight,” Walsh said. “She got in line and created some chances, which was good. It was something that she has needed to do.”Friday’s win over Iowa, coupled with a Northwestern loss to Minnesota put Wisconsin exactly where it hoped to be after the matchup. The Badgers moved within two and three points of Northwestern and Iowa, respectively. However, Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Minnesota left Wisconsin sitting at six points while Northwestern defeated Iowa 3-0 to move to 11 points — 2 points out of reach for the Badgers. The silver lining for Wisconsin is the fact that all hope is not yet lost. With Iowa losing both games over the weekend, the Badgers remain in the race.”We have one game left and we need to put this loss behind us,” Eshun said. “We’ve come a long way together and we have one more game to dig it out and just see what happens.”Senior co-captain Katy Meuer hopes the loss and the Badgers’ postseason chances will be motivating factors for the squad this week in practice.”I think everyone will realize how important this week is and that should motivate them to practice harder than they have all year,” Meuer said. “We have to play like there is no tomorrow, because pretty soon there will not be.”last_img read more

MBB : LAST BITE: Syracuse stifles Wolfpack comeback with late run in win

first_img Published on December 17, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjr Comments RALEIGH, N.C. — Scoop Jardine and Dion Waiters threw chest passes back and forth in the backcourt, watching the North Carolina State zone while trying to communicate with C.J. Fair. The Syracuse guards wanted an alley-oop, but couldn’t relay that information to Fair as the raucous crowd got louder with less than eight minutes to play.Finally, after a series of passes, Jardine got a screen from Fair instead. He dribbled to his right, and as the Wolfpack defender attempted to go under the screen, Jardine took advantage of the opening at the top of the arc.‘I just came off the screen, I knew I had the shot because nobody was up there,’ Jardine said. ‘And I made it.’The senior’s 3-pointer extended Syracuse’s lead to six in what had become a back-and-forth game, and it was part of the key run for the Orange in a game of runs to earn the win. Jardine and Waiters scored all 13 of Syracuse’s points in a late run that put the Orange back ahead by double digits, and No. 1 Syracuse (11-0) commanded the final minutes of an 88-72 victory over NC State (6-4) in front of a sold-out crowd of 19,400 in the RBC Center on Saturday. In the Orange’s first game as the newly-anointed top team in the country — and its first true road game — it fought off an energized NC State team and quieted its crowd to remain undefeated. Waiters led SU with a career-high 22 points, Kris Joseph scored 21 and Jardine had 16.Syracuse used a 23-0 run late in the first half to take a 47-33 lead into halftime, but the Wolfpack closed quickly in the second half. It took another Orange run to pull away for good by game’s end.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘We talked at halftime they’re going to come back and they did,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said.  ‘And I thought the single best thing was that when they made that comeback our players kept their poise. They were really steady, they just kept getting good shots.’Through a flurry of outside shooting — eight first-half 3s — Syracuse pulled ahead by as many as 17 late in the first half.  A 3 by Joseph, followed by back-to-back 3s by forward James Southerland, from nearly the same spot on the right wing, forced NC State head coach Mark Gottfried to call two timeouts as a two-point lead became a 36-29 deficit for NC State within 59 seconds.Syracuse had silenced a frenzied crowd hungry for a big upset and was playing with the swagger of a top-ranked squad.But early in the second half, momentum shifted quickly. A 17-3 NC State run to start the half was finished by a short jumper by Wolfpack forward C.J. Williams to tie the game at 50.The Orange led 58-56 at a media timeout with 11:22 left, and that’s when the team’s closing run began.‘Just we do this. Basically that’s all I can say,’ Joseph said. ‘Dion Waiters hit big shots, Scoop hit two 3s, myself included I had a couple good drives to the basket, and Fab (Melo), we just made plays down the stretch.’NC State guard Scott Wood knocked down a 3 in transition to bring the Wolfpack within 63-61 with 8:38 to play.But off the inbounds, Jardine pushed the ball quickly up the floor. He didn’t allow NC State to get set in its zone, and whipped a pass to Waiters beyond the arc on the right side. Before Wood could close on him, Waiters launched a 3 of his own, severing sharply into the Wolfpack’s momentum.After Jardine’s 3 put the Orange up 69-63 with 7:31 to play — SU’s largest lead in nearly 10 minutes — NC State continued to wither against the dominant guard tandem. Williams’ pass from the right wing toward the top of the arc was stolen by Waiters, and he took the turnover all the way to the rim.‘They gave us a lot of difficulty trying to stop them,’ NC State head coach Mark Gottfried said. ‘They can score a lot of different ways, because they’re really good at getting to the basket.’Williams got a look from 3 next time, but it clanked long off the rim to Jardine, who corralled the board and darted into transition. He pulled back, but then pulled up for 3, knocking it down over Wood. That put SU up 74-63 and the lead grew in the final minutes.‘I came off aggressive and they gave me some open shots,’ Jardine said. ‘And I got into the lane and I got a layup to get me going and that’s what I had to do. I always have to take what the defense gives me and in the second half I was able to score.’mcooperj@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Students voice concerns about Master Plan

first_imgStudents and staff members discussed on Thursday at the Von KleinSmid Center USC’s Master Plan and its potential community impact.The potential for job creation as part of the Master Plan’s initiatives for development struck interest with David Galaviz, executive director of local government relations for USC.Attentive · Students attended a forum where they could voice concerns about the potential impact of USC’s plans to renovate the U.V. – Priyanka Patel | Daily Trojan“[USC] will make sure that there is a local hiring component, so that the residents have access to these jobs,” Galaviz said.Community impact was a theme of the night, as the potential for affordable retail stores as well as easing housing concerns in the areas surrounding USC were discussed.“We are creating 5,200 beds, meaning we could ease some of the housing pressure in the community,” Galaviz said.Galaviz also noted that the increase in housing as outlined by the Master Plan could put some downward pressure on rents, thus making neighborhood housing more affordable.Karina Casillas, a senior majoring in public policy, management and planning and American studies, said USC is only showing the “sunny side” of the development.“Students want more affordable housing options, not necessarily new ones,” Casillas said.Max Hoiland, a senior majoring in critical studies, is also concerned about a possible rise in housing prices as a result of the Master Plan.“I live about a mile off campus with a bunch of students,” Hoiland said. “This plan would probably increase rent in the area since USC hasn’t made any specific commitment to affordable housing, and private landlords would have the ability to raise their prices too.”The possibility that a higher-end retailer would replace Superior Grocers also worried Casillas.“Everything found in those [higher-end] stores is at a higher price, which means the community won’t be able to afford it, and they will have to shop in a different neighborhood,” Casillas said.Galaviz tried to dispel commonly held fears by stressing that over the last four to five years, the university has sponsored at least 200 community meetings through either an advisory council or door-to-door outreach in order to give community members a chance to voice their opinions.Community members were also able to have their voices heard during the two open houses organized by the City Planning Department, which more than 350 people attended, 300 of whom supported the plan.Casillas, however, feels that the student body has not been afforded the opportunity to fully understand and discuss what the Master Plan entails. She plans to work with the United Neighbors in Defense Against Displacement, and will conduct an open forum regarding the development plans.“This event is not about being ‘for’ or ‘against’ the Master Plan but merely a call for equal consideration,” Casillas said.Joshua Sena, a junior majoring in sociology, said including everyone in the discussion about the Master Plan encourages its success.“The best course of action would be a collaboration between students, the community and USC,” Sena said. “Everyone affected should have an input as to what should be done.” Burke Gibson contributed to this report.last_img read more

USC looks to avenge NCAA final loss to Pepperdine on the road

first_imgLast year, the USC men’s volleyball team got swept in three quick sets at Pepperdine.It might be a little bit different this time around.Teamwork · Junior setter Riley McKibbin sets up junior middle blocker Austin Zahn for the spike. The two were a part of a talented recruiting class that has helped the Trojans acheive the nation’s top ranking. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily Trojan “That [loss] is in the back of everyone’s mind,” junior outside hitter Murphy Troy said.The Trojans (6-1, 4-0) come into the match at Pepperdine’s Firestone Fieldhouse tonight as the top-ranked team in the nation, while the No. 11 Waves (1-4, 1-3) are reeling from the loss of their superstar. Even though the Waves finished second in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation last year, they lost 2009 National Player of the Year and three-time All-American Paul Carroll to graduation and are struggling to learn a new, quicker offense.But the Trojans aren’t taking the Waves lightly; they know it’s not easy playing at Pepperdine.“It’s one of the toughest environments in NCAA volleyball and Pepperdine’s the kind of school and program you can’t underestimate,” junior outside hitter Tri Bourne said.That said, the Trojans come into the match boasting the best record in the MPSF, and they are off to their best start since 2000. They have five returning starters from last year’s squad, which beat Pepperdine in the MPSF Championship.USC could get another victory if it pulls out the win tonight — albeit only a mental victory.“We divided our season into three segments, and Friday will be the final piece of the first segment,” USC coach Bill Ferguson said. “If we could finish the first third being undefeated in the league, that’s going to be a huge deal.”One of the bright spots for the Trojans during the first third of the season has been Bourne. Bourne was part of the talented recruiting class that included 2009 All-American Troy and 2009 third team All-Americans, junior setter Riley McKibbin and junior middle blocker Austin Zahn.Yet Bourne was hampered by injuries in his first two seasons. He missed the fall of his freshman year due to appendicitis, and he missed significant time the summer and fall of his sophomore year with a herniated disc.This is the first time Bourne has been able to train year-round, and it’s paying off. Bourne has a .345 hitting percentage and averages 3.23 kills per game, which are both well above his career average.With other teams focusing on Troy, Bourne can take advantage and punish the opposition.“He’s an unbelievably talented young man,” Ferguson said. “He’s as good an outside hitter as anyone in the country. He’s just been sitting in the weeds the past few years.”With a healthy Bourne, the Trojans have improved a lot over the first two weeks of the season in the serving and passing category.Blocking, however, is an area the team realizes it needs to improve upon.USC has been out-blocked in the last two matches, which have been sweeps. While the Trojans focused on offense the first part of the season, the team turned its attention to defense this week as they worked on blocking.Ferguson isn’t too worried about the team’s problems in the blocking category as it is built to succeed without needing to block.“Part of what we do is not play to get the stuff block — we’re a better digging and transition team right now,” Ferguson said. “We’ve been so good over the past few years defensively digging the ball.”Also, the fact that the Trojans get a lot of aces — USC is third in the MSPF averaging 1.46 aces per game — means that there’s less opportunities to block balls.If the Trojans can step it up defensively, they will be tough to beat. But they know that Pepperdine has the talent to be a very competitive team.“They’re going to be heard from and that’s the scary thing about them,” Ferguson said. “They have unbelievably talented players, it’s just a matter of when they put things together.”last_img read more

Women of Troy look forward to NCAA tourney

first_imgThe regular season might be over, but the USC women’s tennis team is not satisfied ending the season just yet.Despite losing a few crucial matches, the No. 20 Women of Troy (13-9, 5-3) remain poised as they prepare for their 19th consecutive appearance in the NCAA women’s tennis championships next month.“For these next few weeks, we’re just trying to get in the best shape possible by doing extra fitness and building our level of confidence,” junior Cristala Andrews said.Last year, the Women of Troy finished 21-3 overall and went undefeated in Pac-10 play. But the former USC’s No. 1 doubles team graduated from their roster in 2009, and this year proved to be a different story for the Women of Troy.Though USC began the season notched as the No. 9 seed, USC’s ranking bounced around frequently hitting its lowest at No. 21 in the latter part of the season.Throughout the season, USC battled trying to figure out the best possible doubles lineup. Overall this season, USC was 13-1 when the Trojans won the doubles point and 0-8 when losing the doubles point in dual-match play.“This season, we struggled to create a strong doubles line up, causing us to lose the doubles point a lot,” said junior Maria Sanchez.Sanchez is nationally ranked No. 3 in singles with a 19-3 singles record this season.“We lost so many of our toughest matches where the doubles point could have made the difference,” Sanchez said.USC lost three of its matches by 4-3 to some of its biggest Pac-10 foes: Arizona State, UCLA and Stanford. If the Trojans had won the doubles point against all of those teams, their season might have had a different feeling.“So far, we haven’t had the results we were expecting to get, but we know that we are a very talented team,” freshman Valeria Pulido said. “Right now we see the NCAA competition as a challenge, as well as a chance to really prove ourselves.”For now, USC has its doubles lineup secured and ready to compete at the NCAA’s.Sanchez and freshman Danielle Lao, who are also ranked nationally at No. 65 in this week’s Intercollegiate Tennis Assocation rankings, lead the way at the top doubles position. At No. 2 is sophomore Alison Ramos and Pulido, followed by the No. 3 duo of senior Sarah Fansler and junior Lyndsay Kinstler.“We’re just going to head into our matches with a clean slate, forgetting about previous disappointing matches,” Sanchez said. “We have to go in playing with a lot of energy and knowing we are the better team.”The NCAA tournament begins May 14 with regional play, after which teams move on to Athens, Ga., from the round of 16 on.last_img read more

Men’s hockey: New Badgers look to make their mark on Wisconsin program

first_imgBeing a college freshman is hard. You have classes, you need to find your way around campus and — more often than not — need to learn to cook for yourself.

The Madison native finished second on the team in points, totaling 45 (16 goals, 29 assists) in 60 games.Gorniak, Wisconsin’s Mr. Hockey of 2018 from West Salem High School, was selected in the fourth round (123rd overall) by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

In addition to his eye-popping high school statistics, the 19-year-old forward had 18 goals and 20 assists with Team Wisconsin U-18 this past season.Football: Badgers open up Big Ten play, hope to bounce back against HawkeyesThe bad news is the University of Wisconsin football team lost to an unremarkable team, Brigham Young University, last week. Read…Q: What made you decide to come to Wisconsin?Emberson: It was pretty obvious for me. I’m from Eau Claire, so a home-state kid, and obviously the coaching staff here is unbelievable, they’re second to none.

And then all the amenities we have in our locker room is second to none.Gorniak: One big thing was the coaching staff — the coaching staff here is unbelievable: They move guys on to the next level. Also, just the campus itself. It’s the perfect middle between a great school and a great hockey program.Q: What strengths do you feel you bring to the program?Emberson: I feel that I bring a solid defensive presence and a puck-moving defenseman. I think I also bring energy on the bench and physical play.Messner: I think I bring a competitive edge, high compete level and some skill to go with it.Gorniak: I bring speed, play-making ability and a strong work ethic.Volleyball: Badgers open up Big Ten play with Buckeye sweepThe No. 6 Wisconsin volleyball team opened up their Big Ten season with a return to the University of Wisconsin Read…Q: Have you received any advice from upperclassmen, and if so, what’s the best advice you’ve received?Emberson: Through the summer I’ve heard a lot from upperclassman: just enjoy your time here, it goes by way faster than you’d think. And come in every day like it’s your last, so just battle as hard as you can against the upperclassmen, it’ll make them better in the end.Gorniak: Yeah, I’ve received a bunch of advice. I’d say the best advice I’ve received is just have fun, be confident. You don’t want to go in there scared, you have to be confident to play at this level so that’s probably the best advice I’ve received.Q: What’s your favorite pre-game meal?Emberson: Pre-game meal is always chicken parm.Messner: Nothing, in particular, I like to switch it up.Gorniak: I’d have to say salad with French dressing and chicken.Men’s Soccer: Badgers look to end road woes in matchup against MarylandThe University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team (2-4-1, 0-1-0 Big Ten) looks to put an end to their road woes Read…Q: Do you have any pre-game rituals?Emberson: I play a little tennis game with my roommate K’Andre (Miller). We just play first person to drop three tennis balls loses. Then I always go left before right (Left skate, left glove, left shin pad when getting dressed before games). Messner: No, I don’t like to have a pre-game ritual because if you mess it up, then you think you might play bad.Gorniak: I always tie my left skate first, and also just listening to music, too.Now that you’ve gotten to know some of the new Wisconsin Badgers, look for them on the ice as we get closer to the first exhibition puck-drop on Oct. 7 against the University of Victoria Vikes.last_img read more

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder retires after 27 seasons

first_imgThe Wildcats went 5-7 (3-6) this season, missing a bowl for the first time since 2009 and just the fourth time since 1992 under Snyder.”If I was not wanted and didn’t feel like I was having an impact on the lives of young people and my family wasn’t interested in me continuing, I certainly wouldn’t,” Snyder said (via ESPN) last week when asked whether he would continue coaching. Kansas State coach Bill Snyder is ready to call it a career as he announced his retirement Sunday, the school announced. Snyder, known for pulling off one of the most improbable program turnarounds in college football history, went 215-117-1 over 27 seasons with the Wildcats. His time with Kansas State was split over two terms from 1989-2005 and 2009-18 as he led Kansas State to two Big 12 championships and 19 bowl games.  College Football Playoff rankings: Oklahoma jumps 2 spots to make playoffs; Ohio State, UCF out of top 4 When Snyder was first hired, the Wildcats had only appeared in one bowl game and they were in the midst of a 27-game winless streak. It took just three years for Snyder to turn around the program as he coached Kansas State to a winning season under his direction. What’s more impressive is Snyder had Kansas State one game away from playing int he BCS National Championship by 1998.The Hall of Fame coach previously retired in 2005, however, he came out of retirement after his successor Ron Price was fired three years later. When he returned to Kansas State, Snyder was 69. Snyder, 79, had agreed to a new five-year deal with the Wildcats over the summer that would have kept him at the helm until the 2022 season.
