UW’s hockey veterans finish strong

first_imgAfter devoting at least four years of work, sweat and time to a college hockey program, it seems unlikely that any meaningful conclusions can be drawn from the final game in front of a home crowd just because this particular Saturday was labeled “senior night.”On this rare occasion, however, the symmetry of senior night — all seven members of the graduating class scored at least one point and they accounted for 10 points in all — might have actually summed up the contributions from the veteran group this season.On the season, Michael Davies leads the team in points with 40, while Blake Geoffrion is close on his heels with 36. Fifth-year senior Ben Street is one of three captains along with Geoffrion, while the understated game of Aaron Bendickson — he wreaks havoc on the penalty kill and finishes checks despite his small size — often sets the emotional tone for the rest of the players.In what might be the last game in front of the Kohl Center faithfuls, the collective effort would be a fitting way to go out.“Everybody stepped up and chipped in,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said.“The seniors got the hard hat tonight.”Street, who decided last year not to return from injury and play on senior night, changed the momentum and tone of the game with his buzzer beating breakaway goal to end the second period.“Tonight, I just decided to make the most of it,” Street said. “There is not (a) point in being emotional that it might be the last home game; just seize the moment, and make the best of it.”Gudmandson gets the nodWith playoff time quickly approaching, Eaves has decided to try and figure out who will be between the pipes each night for the stretch run.Despite giving up five goals Friday night, Gudmandson was given the nod based on his body of work this season.The junior netminder struggled again Saturday, allowing several fluky goals and only finishing with 19 saves in 23 chances. Though requested, Gudmandson declined to appear for post game interviews.“Guddy struggled,” Eaves said. “There is no question there. I thought the way he had been playing he earned it… he would be the first one to tell you, for whatever reason he struggled. The thing I said to him after the game: ‘back to work.’”Energy MissingThursday night in Minnesota, the Wisconsin basketball team blew its shot at a conference title with a disappointing showing against the Gophers.One night later against St. Cloud State, the Badger hockey team may have done the same.The Badgers’ slide started when Brendan Smith took a two-minute interference penalty just under 90 seconds into the game. Though UW managed to kill the penalty, Wisconsin lost the jump in its skates and gave up a wrap-around goal to senior Ryan Lasch several minutes later.In a game with heavy conference implications, Eaves was disappointed with his players’ effort in the first 10 minutes.“The first 10 minutes, we didn’t have a great start,” he said. “For whatever reason, we were flat.”Street echoed his coach’s thoughts.“It was kind of a weird start,” Street said. “There was a penalty early. Jordy [Murray] kind of got caught in a long shift… the first 10 minutes only a few players played. No one really got in the flow. It was pretty stagnant on our bench too.”Though Eaves believed UW picked up the intensity for the final 50 minutes of the game, Wisconsin still made enough mistakes to suffer a 5-1 loss.The second mistake came when Gudmandson came out aggressively to prevent a breakaway — but ended up turning over the puck to Garrett Roe for a wide open net.Sloppy on defense for much of the night, Gudmandson was left in no-man’s land when the defenseman let Roe slip between them.“If I didn’t clear that puck he would have had a clear cut breakaway,” Gudmandson said. “It was a gamble… but he knocked the puck out of air and made a good play. If I had to do it again I probably would have gone out and tried to fire it.”Mistakes were also made on the penalty kill — St Cloud’s Tony Mosey was left unchecked near the net — and in the third period when the final tally sapped all energy from the building.Both Eaves and Street believe the Badgers out-chanced their opponent, but were unable to capitalize when presented the opportunity. For the Huskies’ part, no strong chance went to waste.“Every time we made a mistake, we found the puck in our net,” Eaves said. “We didn’t capitalize on our opportunities. I think we will find in the game that we had a lot of good chances and didn’t bury them.”last_img read more

Ware’s horrid injury motivating Louisville teammates ahead of Final Four clash with Wichita State

Rick Pitino watched Kevin Ware crash to the court as Ware’s leg broke in a horrifying way.After Louisville shook the shock of witnessing the injury, the Cardinals put together a dominant performance to bury Duke in the second half to advance to the Final Four. Ever since, it has been a constant outpouring of support for their injured teammate.One that Pitino gushed about on Thursday.“I don’t think I could be any prouder of young men. The outward emotion of love that they showed each other was, for me, just a great thing as a basketball coach to witness,” Pitino said. “Now we are refocused.”It’s a scary thought for the other three teams here at the Final Four. Louisville’s already an explosive team with a stifling defense. Now the Cardinals are even more driven to take the championship trophy home to Louisville after Ware’s injury, which required immediate surgery and will leave Ware with a long, arduous road back to the court.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWare was released from the hospital Tuesday and traveled with the team to Atlanta. Louisville plays Wichita State on Saturday at 6:09 p.m., and Ware will be on the bench to support the Cardinals. Meanwhile, Louisville will be doing everything it can to win the game and the championship for Ware.“It’s just incredible how adversity brings out the best in people,” Pitino said. “It certainly brought out the best in Kevin, as well as his teammates.”But Ware’s loss still has a significant effect on Louisville. Without him, the Cardinals are down a guard off the bench. It disrupts a rotation Pitino called “great,” one that helped Louisville earn a No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.With the Cardinals’ fast-paced style and full-court press, having extra bodies to turn to can be key. Louisville’s bench is now so depleted that it will have to turn to a non-scholarship player as a reserve.“Now we can’t change our style of play because we won’t win or have a chance of winning, so now we have to play a walk-on,” Pitino said. “He’s got to do the best job he can do.”Pitino said Thursday that the team learned a lot about Ware this week. The way he fought through the injury and urged his teammates to win the game for him gave this tournament extra meaning for Louisville.The injury, which has captured the country’s attention beyond college basketball, could make the Cardinals a more dangerous team.Said Pitino: “I think it’s going to be a great motivator for us.” Commentslast_img read more

Syracuse volleyball begins Nebraska Tournament with 3-0 loss to Oregon State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ After nearly an entire week of work prior to Syracuse’s trip for the Nebraska Invite, Annie Bozzo set up an Anastasiya Gorelina spike to open the game on top. That one to nothing lead was the last SU would see on the way to a loss in straight sets at the hands of Oregon State.The Beavers (3-1) received an enormous amount of offense up front from Lanesha Reagan who routinely received sets from McKenna Hollingsworth. Reagan recorded 16 of the team’s 38 kills while the latter racked up 29 assists. For the Orange (0-3) mistakes ran rampant.Several SU runs, like a six to three stretch in the first set, were broken up by an overwhelming amount of errors by the team. After Gorelina, who had five of the team’s 17 errors on the day, botched a serve; Oregon State went on a six to nothing run to take set one. On the other side the Beavers only recorded 23 errors..The Orange lost by totals of 25-10, 25-19, and 25-20. Prior to Friday, they had not lost a single set by four or more points all season. SU had surges, such as a seven to five rush down the stretch of the final set, but Reagan often stymied them with kills including one that sealed the game.Syracuse has not started 0-3 to begin a season since 2013, when they finished 16-16 on the year. Back then they played two teams ranked in the top 25 to begin the season. None of the Orange’s opponents so far have been ranked.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange’s next game is tomorrow at 6 p.m. against Iowa State.

Cameroon’s AFCON 2019 Runs into a Hitch

first_imgThe Comoros Football Federation (FFC) has lodged a case at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) over Cameroon’s participation at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.A post on social media from the General Manager of the Comoros team, Ben Amir Saadi, confirmed the move.The Comoros believe that Cameroon should be excluded from the 2019 finals after having the hosting rights for the tournament withdrawn from them. Comoros are in the same qualifying group as Cameroon, whom they face in March.The FFC claims that CAF has failed to implement its own regulations concerning the action to be taken.CAF rules (Article 92.3) state that if a nation withdraws from hosting or has the rights taken away one year before the finals, ‘a fine of five hundred thousand (500,000) U.S. dollars and a suspension from the next edition of AFCON of it’s A national team, without considering the concerned edition.’The latter words would suggest that Cameroon’s participation in the 2019 finals should not be affected.However, it remains to be seen how the FFC’s claim will impact, if at all, upon Cameroon’s hosting of the 2021 Nations Cup, which it is now set to stage.As things stand, the Nations Cup qualifier in March between Cameroon and the Comoros will decide who joins already-qualified Morocco in reaching the finals in Egypt, with the fourth team in Group B – Malawi – no long able to go through.With Morocco on 10 points, Cameroon 8 and the Comoros 5, a draw in Cameroon will be enough for the Indomitable Lions to advance – while the Comoros must win to advance.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
