Kiss delighted with Best call-up

first_img Press Association Kiss added: “He’s been immense for Ulster and Ireland. I do know that he’s the type of player Australia will hate to play against and if he gets his chance, he’ll take it.” Best was originally chosen to lead the tour to North America – Jamie Heaslip, Brian O’Driscoll and Paul O’Connell are with the Lions – but that post has now been passed to O’Mahony. The Munster flanker, who has been capped 14 times, is relishing the role and feels that justice has been done after Best joined the elite of British and Irish rugby. “It’s a huge honour for me and my family. I was delighted by the call and delighted for Rory to get his chance with the Lions,” the 23-year-old said. “We all thought he deserved it in the first place and we should have been sending text messages of congratulation on April 30. “This is an exciting Ireland squad with a good mix of youth and experience, so it should be a fun and interesting trip. Some things are different when you’re captain, but on the pitch you just do what your normally do.” Ireland acting head coach Les Kiss and captain Peter O’Mahony have welcomed Rory Best’s call-up by the British and Irish Lions, but claimed he should have been in the original squad.center_img Best was the biggest name omission when the 37-man touring party for Hong Kong and Australia was announced on April 30, with the Ulster hooker losing out to England’s Dylan Hartley. But a twist of fate has given the 30-year-old his chance after Hartley was banned for 11 weeks for abusing referee Wayne Barnes during Northampton’s Aviva Premiership defeat by Leicester. Kiss, speaking in advance of Ireland’s two-Test tour of North America, said: “It’s something that all of us in this island thought was deserved in the first place, but that’s the way it happens in selection sometimes. We’re extremely happy for what Rory’s got, it’s great reward for everything he’s done over the last four years.” last_img

Chipper days have returned for a balanced Orange team.

Published on February 8, 2011 at 12:00 pm Point guardScoop Jardine vs. Chris WrightRelatively even matchup here between two of the Big East’s more seasoned point guards, all the way down to the negative stats. Each point guard is averaging 2.9 turnovers per game on the season.Shooting guardBrandon Triche vs. Austin FreemanAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange will look to keep Triche constantly moving to get him open for his shot. Freeman is the Big East preseason Player of the Year and has backed it up all year long.Small forwardKris Joseph vs. Jason ClarkJoseph will get an edge through his hungry effort all over the court, like he showcased against USF on Saturday. Clark is a scrappy scorer, though, evidenced by his 50 percent clip from the field.Power forwardRick Jackson vs. Nate LubickRick Jackson made a statement for SU in the team’s last game against USF. Will he have the same performance against the Hoyas and Lubick? No. But he will feast on another spot where Georgetown is undersized.CenterFab Melo vs. Julian VaughnThe freshman Melo is still soft, and Vaughn will exploit that.

Netherlands native Slim provides Syracuse with outside threat

first_img Published on November 13, 2013 at 2:51 am Contact Josh: jmhyber@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ At the 2013 FIBA U19 Women’s World Basketball Championships in Lithuania, Isabella Slim was the Netherlands’ sharpshooting two-guard with a knack for knocking down the outside shot. Syracuse women’s basketball head coach Quentin Hillsman was the Dutch’s assistant coach. Four months removed from those World Championships, Hillsman is once again coaching Slim, who is now a freshman shooting guard for the Orange. “Once I saw her I knew she was a very good player and had the ability to step out and shoot the ball,” Hillsman said. “With her being here now, she’s really given us another shooter and scorer. She’s going to be a very productive player for us in the next four years.”At Syracuse (1-0), Slim’s bright orange Netherlands jersey will turn a darker shade and her number will change from 11 to 10, but Hillsman envisions Slim playing the same brand of basketball she played for her national team — one that centers on stretching the floor and shooting from the perimeter. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut it wasn’t always a foregone conclusion that she would join her international coach in the United States. Slim had other college options, which didn’t make the recruiting process easy for Hillsman. “Because she knew me she had a chance to be brutally honest with me, and she was,” Hillsman said. “She let me know the concerns she had about coming to college and playing here.”Once Slim made her campus visit last December, though, she knew Syracuse would be a good fit. And having a pre-existing relationship with Hillsman didn’t hurt either. “We have a really good connection and I can talk to him about everything, which is important because my family isn’t here,” Slim said. “If I ever need anything I know I can always go to him.”On Sunday, the freshman started the Orange’s season-opener against Washington State, scoring three points in 10 minutes. Slim converted 1-of-2 attempts from beyond the arc, but did not shoot from inside the 3-point line. If Hillsman continues to surround center Shakeya Leary with four guard lineups, Slim may receive more playing time than the 10 minutes she played on Sunday. “Her decision was about her understanding she could come here and play and be effective right away,” Hillsman said. Shooting guard Brittney Sykes said Syracuse has been anxiously waiting for Slim’s arrival because they knew she could come in and make a “big impact,” especially to complement someone like Sykes, who thrives on penetrating and kicking the ball to open shooters. Sykes is glad that the team has another shooter in the fold. She also has an advantage because defenders can’t leave Slim, allowing Sykes a clearer path to the basket. “You can give it to her and she’ll knock down the shot,” Sykes said. “She can also put it on the floor. When teams try to run her off her spot, she can actually dribble into the paint and draw the defense in to pitch it out again.“It’s really good to have someone like that who’s a double threat.” Hillsman has helped coach the Netherlands team for three years now. Last season, he brought Netherlands-product Karen van den Nieuwendijk to Syracuse. But van den Nieuwendijk didn’t see any game action. It won’t be that way for Slim. “She’s a stretch the floor shooter who can get up and down the floor,” Hillsman said. “She’s a very smart technical basketball player, and she’s doing the same thing here as she did with the national team.”And Slim knows what she has to do to stay on the floor. “I just have to shoot the ball.” Commentslast_img

first_imgShare Q3 bounce back sees bet-at-home recover its 2018 expectations November 5, 2018 bet-at-home maintains 2020 outlook despite dire opening  May 4, 2020 StumbleUpon Submit Related Articles Share Swiss drama sees bet-at-home ‘peak performance’ unlikely to be matched in 2019 March 4, 2019 Markus Peuler -mybet SEPublishing its Q1 2017 trading statement, Frankfurt Xetra-listed European sports betting operator mybet Holding SE has detailed continued negative declines in its corporate revenues and earnings.A tough Q1 opening, has seen mybet post group revenues of €8.9 million, down 29% on corresponding Q1 2016’s €12.5 million. The operator detailed that its online casino product, had been ‘out of operation’ during the period due to ‘complaints raised by authorities’.Adding to mybet’s woes, was the high number of sports betting customer wins accumulated during February and March, which had a significant impact on earnings as the firm posted a period EBITDA of – €2.2 million (Q1 2016: -€800,000).Issuing a statement Markus Peuler, CEO of mybet commented on performance “In the first quarter the existing trend in the development of the business basically continued since we have put our new platform into operation by the end of the quarter. However, the sports results and the high number of won bets by customers connected with them formed an additional burden which we had never experienced this way during the last years. But in total the quarter clearly shows why we did not forecast a large growth in revenue for the financial year 2017 despite the new platform. We firstly have to break the downward trend”Despite a turbulent opening to its 2017 performance. mybet governance points to upcoming improvements as the company fully integrates its new IT platform which was launched in March following two-years of internal development. Further relief for mybet was announced this May, as the firm won its ten-year German High Court battle against Westdeutsche ‘WestLotto’ Lotterie GmbH & Co gaining an €11.8 million settlement.Issuing a May update mybet governance detailed that proceeds would be used to its credit facility. The company has stuck by its revised full-year EBIT target of €4.5-5.5 million combined with a group cash position at the end of the year of € 1- 2  million.last_img
