Badgers have trouble stopping opponent inside

first_imgOn Thursday night, the Wisconsin post players once again could not handle a tough defensive task. Now the questions begin ? are the opposing players that good, or are the Badger post players simply mediocre?It is not simply that the Wisconsin presence down low was absent, but rather that during this season, it has been very inconsistent. This difficulty presented itself particularly when Wisconsin faced the Fighting Illini.Smith ran all over the Badgers, scoring 12 points and grabbing seven rebounds in the first half. By the end of the game, she had doubled her points (24) and rebounds (14) while adding four blocks.?My coach just kept telling me to sit on their knees,? Smith said. ?My teammates just kept throwing passes and we kept running plays to get myself open and my other teammates open. It?s mostly just my teammates giving me great passes.?With Zastrow emerging as a strong post player against Ohio State Jan. 20, the Badgers were poised and excited for a change of pace, where their presence down low would be stronger.In Thursday?s game though, Smith dominated the Badgers, and besides being Illinois? strongest force on offense, she shut down the lane for all Wisconsin players.On the rebounding side, Ward and Zastrow combined for only 10 rebounds. In comparison, Wisconsin guard Jolene Anderson, who usually stands on the perimeter, got 12 rebounds, eight of which were in the first half.Nevertheless, the Badgers watched the first half go by as Smith rolled over the Wisconsin backcourt and made several easy layups. In the second half, the Badgers bounced back, and manage to make some defensive adjustments on the Illini center.?What Lin and Danielle do for our team is that they complement each other very well,? Wisconsin head coach Lisa Stone said. ?Lin picked it up defensively. … It took a couple of early experiences against [Smith].?Despite their late game improvements, Zastrow and Ward know they could be better post players, even with the tough play of Smith. For Zastrow, she still has much time to become a better defensive stopper down low.?Like coach said, you can?t take anything away from her because [Smith?s] a very good player,? Zastrow said. ?She really uses her body well and is an overall smart player.?Perhaps against Illinois it was not the inconsistent play of Ward and Zastrow, but rather that Smith is a premier presence down low, unlike most of the players the Badgers have played this season. However, when they have played teams with similar players, the results have been quite similar.Against Ohio State, the Badgers allowed forward Jantel Williams to tally 22 points and seven rebounds and Hoosier center Amber Jackson scored 15 points against the Wisconsin defense.Two of Wisconsin?s most important players barely reaching double digit rebounds in a game against a conference opponent hurts the Badgers significantly. Moreover, if the Badgers wish to compete with the best, their post play must drastically improve, and the players know it.?I just … I think I have to watch film and learn how to play against someone like [Smith],? Zastrow said. ?She?s very smart ? she?s probably two inches shorter than me and still can shoot over me.?The win over the Illini could have been far easier for the Badgers with stronger post play, and though the point has been visited several times this season, it should continue to be addressed until the problem is solved.With the Badgers? season coming to a close very soon, if they hope to compete in the Big Ten Tournament, their post players must play accordingly. Making defensive adjustments throughout games is a good start and a necessary attribute, but Zastrow and Ward must be able to at the very least contain players of Smith?s abilitylast_img

Brickman continues to prove himself, leads country in assists as LIU senior

first_img Published on February 4, 2014 at 2:24 am Contact Sam: sblum@syr.edu | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ Jason Brickman was getting his house ready for one of the most important visits of his life. Stephen F. Austin head coach Danny Kaspar was coming to Brickman’s home to talk about him playing for the Lumberjacks.He cleaned all the rooms and replaced the nets on his indoor basketball court. The normally even-keeled Brickman couldn’t hide his anticipation.But then the phone rang. It was Kaspar. They had found a new point guard. His services were no longer needed.Brickman broke down into tears.“That really hurt him,” said his father, Bruce Brickman. “I could see in the look in his eyes. He was really hurt. I said, ‘Listen, you’re too great of a player. It’s going to be his loss.’”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe words didn’t ease the pain in the moment, but have proven true four years later. Now a senior at Long Island University-Brooklyn, Brickman leads the nation in assists with 10 per game — a full 2.5 ahead of the next highest player — and has made the NCAA Tournament in his first three seasons.The Filipino-American star that only received one Division I offer has NBA scouts lining the Steinberg Wellness Center bleachers for each of his home games. He’s established himself as one of the most fine-tuned guards in the nation.“I definitely wanted to prove myself, and not a whole lot of colleges recruited me,” Brickman said. “I just wanted to prove that I could play at this level. I definitely had a chip on my shoulder.”The only Division I school that wanted Brickman was LIU.Then-assistant coach Jack Perri was making his annual recruiting visit to Texas when he first saw Brickman.The way he played fascinated Perri, who knew that Brickman would fit right into LIU’s high-octane offense.“We watched him three or four times and we just kind of followed him around,” said Perri, who was promoted to head coach before last season. “We’re watching him and we’re looking around and no one is in the gym watching this kid.”Brickman was the point guard on an LIU team that finished third in the nation in scoring his sophomore year. He led the country in assists as a junior. This year, with a far less talented team, he’s basically been the Blackbirds’ only weapon.“It’s great to have that for the program, but he deserves it,” Perri said. “He’s absolutely, 100 percent the hardest working kid on our team.“We have five guys in double figures, all because of him.”Being a senior on a team full of underclassmen has forced Brickman to be the defunct team leader. It’s a role that he isn’t necessarily comfortable with. Brickman might light up the stat sheet, but he’s far more comfortable in the background.Growing up, concerned coaches would ask his dad if he ever talked. On his visit to LIU, his quiet nature had the coaches worried he wouldn’t sign.“I think that’s part of his charm, why he’s so good,” Perri said. “You can’t faze him. He doesn’t get too high, get all amped up when things are going really well. He’s straight. So he doesn’t get too low.”Though soft-spoken, Brickman’s poise shouldn’t be mistaken for a lack of determination. He often goes to practice at the SWC alone, early in the morning, and comes back late at night. Sometimes, when Perri sleeps in his office behind the court, he does so to the noise of a bouncing basketball.“Someone like Jason has to keep proving himself,” Bruce Brickman said.It’s an attitude that Brickman has, but doesn’t show.This season, when the Blackbirds traveled to play at Texas State, where Kaspar, the former Stephen F. Austin coach, was in charge, Brickman said it meant more for him to win that game.He did. And it felt good.But after the game, Kaspar approached Brickman. The same man that had crushed his dream with a simple phone call told Brickman that letting him go was the worst mistake of his life.Brickman knew that the moment Kaspar had called him, but continued to spend the past four years proving it.“I just told him thank you,” Brickman said. “It was great to hear from him after the game.” Commentslast_img

USC comes up short at Pauley Pavilion

first_imgSenior guard Donte Smith thought he had an open fast break layup and an opportunity to close UCLA’s eight-point lead.Instead, Smith found himself stumbling to the ground with a little more than four minutes to go.Streak snapped · Junior guard Jio Fontan and the Trojans had their four-game win streak against their crosstown rivals snapped. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan The Bruins’ Lazeric Jones had chased him down and cleanly rejected the shot, stuffing the ball back into Smith’s hands.That’s the type of night it was for USC and its guards as they fell 64-50 to crosstown rival UCLA (15-7, 7-3).Despite 32 combined points from junior forward Nikola Vucevic and senior center Alex Stepheson, the Bruins controlled the game throughout.Vucevic and Stepheson got no help from the guards, who made only four jump shots in the game.The Trojans’ (12-11, 4-6)  starting guards managed only seven points and USC didn’t have a single perimeter point in the final 25 minutes of play.Just like the first crosstown showdown this season, UCLA entered on a hot streak having won five of six.Unlike last month’s game, the Bruins guaranteed themselves a victory by jumping out to an early lead with a 12-4 run after Stepheson scored the first two points of the game.UCLA would not trail again.USC showed some life ending the first half on a 9-2 run, punctuated by a Maurice Jones drive and dish to Vucevic for an emphatic slam just before the first-half buzzer expired.The run trimmed the lead down to a one-point halftime lead after the Bruins had led by as much as nine.Joshua Smith came off the bench to lead UCLA with 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting. He also collected six rebounds.As a team, the Bruins shot 48 percent while in the second half USC made only seven field goals, shooting 30 percent from the floor.The Trojans have a week to lick their wounds before hosting the Oregon schools.They will play Oregon State at the Galen Center next Thursday.last_img

UW sweeps Northwestern, turns attention to Illinois

first_imgIn its first Big Ten road match of the season, the Wisconsin volleyball team defeated Northwestern in straight sets Wednesday night.It took Wisconsin (11-2, 2-1 Big Ten) three sets to take down the Wildcats (12-2, 2-1 Big Ten) 25-20, 25-16 and 25-23.Northwestern didn’t wither against Wisconsin, battling for the majority of the match. In the third set, Wisconsin distanced themselves from Northwestern by going on a 6-1 run behind the play of senior outside hitter Ellen Chapman and sophomore middle-blocker Haleigh Nelson after the score had been tied at 10-10. Chapman had three kills during that stretch, while Nelson added two.It looked like Wisconsin would run away with the set after establishing a 21-13 lead, but Northwestern fought back. The Wildcats staved off five match-point attempts by the Badgers. Finally, freshman outside hitter Kelli Bates, who shared match-high kill honors with 13, slammed home the final point for Wisconsin.In the first set, it was Wisconsin who had the catching up to do. The Badgers fell behind 9-5, but battled back with six straight points, highlighted by three aces from sophomore setter Lauren Carlini. UW led for the rest of the set until a 17-17 tie, when the Badgers went on a 8-3 run to capture the first set.The Badgers dominated the second set. After getting out to a 8-5 lead, Wisconsin rattled off seven straight points to take a 1o point lead. Nelson had four kills during that stretch. The Badgers scored the final three points to secure the second set and take a 2-0 lead over the Wildcats.Carlini turned in a double-double with 38 assists and 11 digs. Junior libero Taylor Morey had a team-high 14 digs for the Badgers.Nelson accumulated eight digs, and her five blocks were also a match-high. Chapman had nine kills, while seniors Dominique Thompson and Courtney Thomas racked up seven kills apiece.UW hit for a .396 percentage, while holding Northwestern to a .243 hitting percentage.Following the takedown of the Wildcats Wednesday, Wisconsin will be on the road once again, this time traveling to Champaign, Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini of Illinois Saturday night.The No. 16 Illini faced off against No. 18 Minnesota Wednesday. Illinois beat Minnesota and is now 3-0 in the Big Ten, with their first two victories coming against conference newcomers Rutgers and Maryland. All three of their conference wins came in straight sets.Since dropping its two matches at the Pac-12/Big Ten Challenge to UCLA and No. 1 Stanford, whom they played to five sets, Illinois has won eight out of its last nine matches. The lone loss was a five-set match against Virginia Tech. In that span, the Illini have won seven straight matches, and have lost only two sets during the stretch.“They have a really big front line,” Chapman said. “They’ve always been a scrappy team.”Illinois’ Jocelynn Birks is the reigning Big Ten Player of the Week after her performances against Rutgers and Maryland last week. The redshirt junior outside hitter averaged 3.87 kills per set heading into Wednesday’s match. Opposite senior Liz McMahon adds 3.18 kills per set for the Illini.“They have this wave of offense comin’ at you constantly,” Sheffield said.“They’re experienced, they’re a team that’s won a lot over the years. Very good blocking team,” Sheffield added. “I think they’re one of the most physical teams in the country.”Leading the blocking brigade for Illinois is Watertown, Wisconsin-native Katie Stadick. The sophomore middle blocker averages 1.24 blocks per set, while redshirt senior middle blocker Anna Dorn averages 1.22.Freshman defensive specialist Brandi Donnelly digs 4.27 balls per set. Her performance at the Creighton classic earned her Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors for last week.The Badgers are looking to avenge last season’s loss to the Illini. Illinois’ “Spike Squad,” the volleyball team’s devoted fan section, made the trip to the Field House for that match, during which Illinois won in four sets.This year, it will be much louder. Saturday night, Illinois fans will pack Huff Hall and attempt to break a 22-year old decibel level record, as part of the game’s theme, “IlliNOISE”.This won’t be Wisconsin’s first matchup in a loud environment. Their first match against a ranked opponent, which came on the road at then-No. 13 Colorado State, featured a crowd of 7,000 plus. The UW Field House has also had crowds averaging 4,303 attendees per match through only five home matches, good enough for third in the nation.The Badgers and Illini will get underway at 7 p.m. Saturday night in Champaign, Illinois.last_img

Can acquisition of Marc Gasol convince Kawhi Leonard to stay in Toronto?

first_imgThe blueprint of trading for a superstar player with one year on his contract has worked before. The Thunder acquired Paul George before last season with the idea of giving George a look at their culture and using the season as a year-long recruitment for a long-term deal. The gamble ultimately paid off for the Thunder when George signed long term and spurned the Lakers. Toronto hopes Leonard follows suit. The decision by the Raptors to acquire Marc Gasol on Thursday was done with a purpose.In trading for the three-time All-Star, it shows Kawhi Leonard that the organization is committed to going all-in for a championship this season. Toronto was already a serious contender in the Eastern Conference, and getting a veteran low-post presence who is crafty around the rim can help in the postseason when you have to grind out victories. NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Biggest winners and losersOn the court, Gasol should mesh nicely with Leonard. When backing down in the post, Gasol has tremendous court vision and can draw attention that allows Leonard to slash to the basket. He also can draw double-teams, which leaves another teammate open, such as sharpshooter Danny Green. Gasol has the versatility to space the floor and make shots from the perimeter. In drawing a bigger defender away from the basket, lanes open for Leonard to attack the rim. Was this decision made with the inclination to win now? Yes. But the bigger payout in the ordeal would be to entice Leonard, who is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, to re-sign with Toronto long term. The Raptors stand in second place in the Eastern Conference and trail the Bucks by just 1.5 games. It will be important for them to try to secure the No. 1 seed throughout the playoffs to have home-court advantage, especially considering the Raptors are just 1-3 this season against the Bucks.The biggest threat to Leonard leaving is most certainly Los Angeles, with the Lakers and Clippers on the hunt for big names. Reports surfaced last week that Leonard even purchased a home in the area.However, this is worth the gamble for Toronto. MORE: Ranking worst trades of last decadeIf Toronto makes it to the Finals, how can Leonard walk away? Despite three main competitors in the Celtics, 76ers and Bucks, the path through the East is less of a gauntlet than what is presently constituted in the Western Conference. A deep playoff run would give the team national exposure to other incoming free agents. Instead of Leonard leaving to start or join a super team in Los Angeles, why not make one of his own in Toronto, where he can be the unquestioned leader?If Leonard wins in Toronto and gives the franchise its first championship, he will be immortalized not only in the city, but in all of Canada. last_img

Sumner County Economic Development hosted Van Pool meeting

first_imgSubmitted to Sumner Newscow — The Sumner County Economic Development Commission and Kansas Star Casino/Event Center hosted a meeting Thursday April 30, 2015 at the Event Center regarding the opportunity for Sumner County employers and employees to take part in a pilot program for van pooling.Mike Goulding and Cheryl O’Connor with VRide shared information with the companies on how the van pooling program works and the benefits to the employees and the employers.   A cost benefit comparison was shared with the group, showing how employees can save money with this program.  VRide provides a new vehicle, insurance, and maintenance for the ride sharing groups and Wichita Transit is providing a subsidy for each van in this pilot project.  This program not only can save the employees money and is environmentally friendly, but there are often individuals who are unable to take a job as they do not have reliable transportation to get to the job site.  A van pool can eliminate this barrier to employment for those individuals.If anyone is interested in additional information about this program, please contact the Sumner County Economic Development Commission at 620-326-8779 or scedc@co.sumner.ks.us.Follow us on Twitter.
