Wisconsin heads to Happy Valley for bout with Penn State

first_imgMEGHAN CONLIN/Herald PhotoIt’s back to the future for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team this weekend. After putting the breaks to their three-game losing skid, the Badgers will travel to State College, Penn., Saturday to take on the only team they managed to defeat during the rough stretch where they lost five of six — Penn State. The Nittany Lions (11-10, 3-7 Big Ten) are a team on the rise this season, though their record betrays such an assertion. Several times this season Penn State has had some of the conference’s best teams on the ropes or has kept the game close until late, but come away with only losses to show for it. Still one more conference victory would be the most for Penn State since the 2000-2001 season, when they went 7-9.”People look past a team like Penn State because their record’s not so good, but they can take any team out on any given day,” senior forward Ray Nixon said. That was proven just last Saturday, when the Nittany Lions cruised into Illinois and emerged victorious over the Illini 66-65, in one of the more surprising upsets of the conference season.”They moved the ball pretty well and they were patient and they really attacked Illinois. I think they took Illinois off their game and got on a roll a bit,” Nixon said. “They’re a great team.”In the earlier match-up between UW and Penn State at the Kohl Center, the night was defined by the Badgers shooting lights out in the first half and holding Penn State’s supporting cast in check in a 72-43 blowout. The only player who was able to find success against the Wisconsin defense was sophomore standout Geary Claxton, who is fast becoming one of the conference’s top performers.”He is so good athletically, he is going to hit his shots, it’s just a matter of whether they go down,” Badgers head coach Bo Ryan said of the second-year forward. “He’s aggressive. He’s so long and active that if he can get going his team can be dangerous,” Nixon said. Claxton leads the Nittany Lions in a litany of categories including scoring (15.6 points per game), rebounds (7.0 per game), steals (1.2 per game) and blocks (0.7 per game) and also can flash a three-point shot from time-to-time.”He has a long wingspan, really tough post-up and he can slash,” Ryan said. “He’s not a bad outside shooter. So anytime you have an all-around game you have to get help.” Although Wisconsin was able to keep Claxton’s running mates under wraps in Madison, Penn State does have other weapons, such as freshman-of-the-year frontrunner candidate Jamelle Cornley who is averaging 12.3 points and 5.3 boards a game. Forward Ben Luber and guard Travis Parker also can create problems for a defense, especially when the outside shots are falling.”They know Penn State can score,” Ryan said, reaffirming that his players know full well the capabilities of the Nittany Lion attack. “[The players] know Claxton is quite the athlete. They know that [the guards] have range with their threes. They know Parker can shoot the three and take it inside. Cornley is tough and physical around [the basket].”Wisconsin, fresh off ending one three-game losing streak, will try to end another by defeating Penn State, as UW has lost it’s last three (and five of six) road contests this season. “Man, it’s very important,” Kammron Taylor said of picking up a road win. “To go on the road and get wins, that is definitely key to the Big Ten because a lot of home teams are holding down their home court, so to go into a place like Penn State, where we know the environment is going to be tough, would definitely be good for us.”The tough atmosphere that Taylor speaks of is not the typical, raucous, sold-out arena atmosphere that the team usually sees at Big Ten venues like Michigan State, Illinois and Indiana, but instead will be a less than half-full Bryce Jordan Center. For a team used to playing in front of over 17,000, a crowd of possibly under 7,000 could make things difficult. “It makes things a little bit tougher,” Nixon said. “You are used to having sold out games all the time at your house and you go to a place where they really can’t see the fans, but that is when the team has to come together and be our own fans.””You got to get yourself motivated a little more and just be ready when tip-off comes and that you have enough energy, because you aren’t going to get much from the crowd.”The overall feeling was that Penn State, for a variety of reasons, is not a team that can be taken lightly.”It just shows in this league you can’t take a night off any night, whether you’re home or away,” Chappell said. “You know that any team is capable of beating you so you just have to be ready.”last_img read more

Coleman returns to court in Syracuse’s win over Virginia Tech

first_imgBLACKSBURG, Va. — DaJuan Coleman patiently waited by the scorer’s table. He’d waited almost three full games for a chance to get back on the court, so what were a couple more minutes?“It was annoying, but I just used that extra couple minutes to stretch out, make sure I’m nice and stretched so I can get in there and be ready to play,” the forward said.Coleman was out of the starting lineup for the third straight game on Tuesday, a 72-52 win against Virginia Tech (8-5, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) in No. 2 Syracuse’s (15-0, 2-0) first Atlantic Coast Conference road game. Coleman was once again active and this time got onto the floor with 3:27 remaining.It was garbage time, but it was still minutes.“It felt good,” Coleman said. “After a whole week of treatment and different stuff, my knee is better and better every day.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJerami Grant made his third straight start at forward in place of the injured Coleman and Rakeem Christmas slid into the middle of the Orange’s zone.Coleman was a full participant in warm-ups before the game, but wore a knee brace on his left leg.Jim Boeheim had called the sophomore a game-time decision during the ACC coaches’ teleconference on Monday, but said after the game that Coleman practiced on Monday. After that, the head coach had determined that he was healthy enough to get some time late in the game.“He’s been better in practice, but I didn’t want to go early with him,” Boeheim said. “I wanted to give him a chance there to see how he felt. He said it felt good. I think he needs a couple days of practice and then we’ll see how he responds to that.”Coleman started the first 12 games of the season, but hadn’t played since injuring his knee against then-No. 8 Villanova on Dec. 28. He’s averaging 4.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13 minutes per game.Boeheim didn’t say that Coleman will be ready for more significant minutes against North Carolina on Saturday, but with a few more days of practice Coleman expects to be ready.“I only had two days of practice. I want to get like a full week of practice,” Coleman said. “That will be Friday.” Comments Published on January 7, 2014 at 9:13 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

10 quotes from former Syracuse RB Prince-Tyson Gulley on Scott Shafer’s firing

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 23, 2015 at 12:24 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Syracuse fired head coach Scott Shafer on Monday morning though he will coach his final game on Saturday against Boston College. Former SU running back Prince-Tyson Gulley played for the Orange from 2010-2014 and spoke with The Daily Orange about Shafer.Here are 10 of Gulley’s quotes from that conversation:“We’ve been discussing a lot of things as alumni. I just feel like this is one of the problems with why Syracuse can never get to the point that we can get, is because every 3-4 years we are switching coach.”“Shafer, they just need to give him a chance to build the program. Me knowing him personally, if he would be able to get enough time just to mold these kids and get a full at least five or six years … he has to create the culture that he wants.”“This is what great coaches do, they look at the team that they already have and they build within. They build from what they have. Most coaches nowadays, they come on in and they clean out.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“What I will say is if the next coach comes in and tries to build from what he already has, then maybe something happens.”“Honestly, the reason why Shafer should’ve been able to stay is because they should let him build that culture. It’s gonna be slow.”“I understand it’s a results business, but results take time in this game. All the big teams, they’ve had rocky roads but they’ve figured it out. We’ve had too many rocky roads and we still haven’t figured it out. What have we learned?”“Someone has to look in-depth of this program, really in-depth into the program. If there was a coaching change, obviously they already made that choice. We need to look deeper.”“To be truthfully honest with you, I love Coach Shafer, but a big name would work out perfect.”“My last season there, we were terrible on offense. I’ve seen the life in this offense.”“Honestly, we got to trust (Director of Athletics Mark Coyle). We’ve got to trust him, that he knows exactly what he’s doing, because it’s already done.” Commentscenter_img Related Stories Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer fired, will coach final game vs. Boston CollegePoll: Should Syracuse have fired Scott Shafer?Potential replacements for Scott Shafer as Syracuse’s head coachStorify: Social media reactions to Syracuse football head coach Scott Shafer’s firingBlum: Scott Shafer needed to be firedlast_img read more

Classic R&B comes to Miramar Amphitheater

first_imgLovers of old-school Rhythm and Blues welcome Jam Fest at the Miramar Amphitheater on Oct 28.When Keith Parker wants to unwind, he listens to some good, old Rhythm and Blues. And he likes when others listen with him.Parker is head of Club Entertainment, a company that promotes live concerts showcasing classic R&B acts like The Whispers, Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, and Betty Wright. On October 28, he takes his Florida Jam Fest to the Miramar Amphitheater in South Florida.Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly, Lenny Williams and veteran reggae band Third World are on the card.First production in FloridaIt will be Parker’s first production in Florida. He has done others in Kansas City, Missouri, Greenville, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. The Atlanta native always features a package of classic R&B acts.“I’m from the old school era…It’s what I identify with and I own that,” he told CNW. “I work with old school acts on my shows ‘cause I love these guys. It’s a selfish reason but a fulfilling one.”Attracts diverse audienceAccording to Parker, the shows attract a diverse audience, 30 years-old and up. He said many of the younger fans discovered artists like Maze and Williams through classic soul radio, a fast-rising medium in the United States.“That helps us a lot because they might not know Frankie Beverly but when they hear his songs they hear good music and they love it,” he reasoned.Frankie BeverlyMaze Featuring Frankie Beverly have been around for 40 years. Led by the charismatic, Philadelphia-born Beverly, the group is known for songs like ‘While I’m Alone’, ‘Happy Feelin’s’ and ‘Lady of Magic’.Lenny WilliamsWilliams got his musical start in San Francisco during the 1970s with the band, Tower of Power. He went solo later that decade and released several powerful songs such as the yearning ‘Cause I Love You’, which is revered in soul circles.Parker and his team have a strong market in the South and Midwest. He would love to establish a foothold in South Florida, home to a large West Indian community, which has a long love affair with R&B music dating from the 1970s.Next year, he hopes to bring George Benson and Earth, Wind and Fire to the region.last_img read more

BETR sportsbook app gets design and navigation uplift

first_img Submit BETR smart contract upgrade features new affiliate program January 9, 2019 StumbleUpon MannBenham forms ‘specific advisory’ for transforming global gambling marketplace August 27, 2019 Share Related Articles BETR launches multi-cryptocurrency betting February 22, 2019 Share Blockchain-based BETR has released a new client version of its app –https://bet.betrodds.io, designed to be more familiar to traditional sportsbook users.It is another update to the app first released ahead of the FIFA World Cup in June 2018, just four months after the close of the company’s Initial Coin Offering (ICO).Since then, the app – which provided one of the first opportunities for two parties to bet with one another on the blockchain using BETR and secure smart contracts, has been subjected to various updates including in-play betting and enhanced wallet features.The new interface, developed based on the suggestion to be more familiar for traditional sportsbook users, focuses on simplifying navigation, delivering a more vibrant look and encouraging more adoption by layers (taking the other side of each bet).CEO Adriaan Brink said: “Coming out of the ICO in early February, we had to focus on functionality and core systems efficiency. The challenges of managing latency and scaling – particularly for in-play odds – are formidable but the distributed systems are now solid and performant.“Once we had the underlying systems and APIs working efficiently, we could turn our attention to design and UX.  We love the new look and the simplicity of the user interface and we are in talks with sportsbooks to come on board to support the lay side.”BETR has also developed and launched a unique new app for Telegram messenger – @TheBETRBot, which has been described by BETR as a “simple, fast and fun way to use BETR tokens to place peer-to-peer bets on Telegram”.It has its own set of commands and features that allow users to have a conversation with the betting system in a straightforward, easy to use format with minimal clicks and typing.Each command, or button, is a self-explanatory call to action producing a menu driven conversation. The user can choose which sport and league to follow, as well as view upcoming games and instantly bet peer-to-peer against any of the available lays.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — Wellington may or may not be going to the dogs, depending on your point of view, but you do need to get a dog tag for your animal if you live in town. The deadline was March 1, but tags are always available and are cheap. The cost is $3 for a spayed animal, or $6 for one non spayed.The value of having a dog tag on your animal is that if the animal gets lost, it can be identified and returned to the owner.There is a rather hefty fine for not getting a tag. An owner can be fined $106 if a dog is picked up running at large with no tag. Another drawback is that authorities have no way of identifying the owner, and in this case an animal could be put down in six days.Police Chief Tracy Heath said it is not a huge problem, but it does exist. He estimated 25 percent of animals that are picked up do not have tags.  Cats must also be tagged, and Heath said the problem of cats is much worse, and there is a problem of feral – or wild – cats that is more common than with dogs.Last year there were 262 dogs and 192 cats picked up by the animal control officer after having been reported running at large.Animals are taken to the Wellington Animal Clinic and are held there. If no owner claims the animal, there is an attempt to find a home. The local humane society is involved in adopting animals. Heath said homes are found for many of the dogs, but not many of the cats, so a lot more cats are put down.There are about two dog bites reported per month on average, and often this is a dog at large.Dog tags are available at City Hall or at area veterinarians.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

What channel is NASCAR on today? TV schedule, start time for Sunday’s Michigan race

first_imgThe TV channel for a NASCAR race is elusive enough in a normal season when Fox and FS1 trade broadcasts of Cup Series events through the first half of the schedule before NBC and NBCSN take over for the second half. The schedule shake-up associated with the coronavirus pandemic make the “what channel is today’s NASCAR race on” question even more understandable.For the second time this season, NASCAR is working through a Saturday-Sunday doubleheader as part of those schedule changes, this time at Michigan International Speedway. As was the case for Saturday’s race, the TV channel for Sunday’s NASCAR race is NBCSN. The Consumers Energy 400 marks NBC/NBCSN’s sixth broadcast of the season, as Fox/FS1’s slate ended with the July 15 All-Star Race. The previously postponed races at Dover and Michigan are now part of Saturday-Sunday doubleheaders at those respective tracks in August.Because New York requires people to quarantine for 14 days after traveling from one of the states impacted heavily by COVID-19 (including North Carolina), the Watkins Glen race on Aug. 16 was moved to the Daytona road course. According to The Athletic, NASCAR tried to get a quarantine waiver for its Watkins Glen races but was denied by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office.The Aug. 16 race will be the NASCAR Cup Series’ first on the road course at Daytona. MORE: Watch today’s NASCAR race live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)Sunday’s race at Michigan is the 18th race in NASCAR’s return on an altered, short-term schedule, and the 22nd Cup Series races overall as NASCAR attempts to keep a 36-race slate intact for 2020. The first Michigan race originally was scheduled to run in early June but was rescheduled amid the pandemic and paired with the August Michigan race for a doubleheader.The start time for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan is 4:30 p.m. ET, 30 minutes later than the start time of Saturday’s race.Below is how to watch Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan, including the TV channel and live stream options.What channel is NASCAR on today?Race: Consumers Energy 400 at Michigan International SpeedwayDate: Sunday, Aug. 9TV channel: NBCSNLive stream: NBCSports.com | fuboTV (7-day free trial)Radio: MRNNBCSN is the TV channel for Sunday’s NASCAR race at Michigan as originally scheduled even though it’s now the second leg of a doubleheader. Of the 20 NASCAR Cup Series races NBC will broadcast in 2020, 12 were scheduled to be shown on NBCSN with the other eight on NBC’s flagship cable network.As for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race on NBCSN, the network has a channel finder feature for viewers to find the TV channel options in their areas.As is the case for all the Cup Series races on NBC and NBCSN this season, Rick Allen will call the race with the assistance of analysts Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Burton and Steve Letarte.What time does the NASCAR race start today?Date: Sunday, Aug. 9Start time: 4:30 p.m. ETThe green flag for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan will wave shortly after 4:30 p.m. ET, assuming there are no rain delays as there have been so often since NASCAR returned to live racing in May.Though NASCAR will have plenty of time to get the race in with the sun not setting in Brooklyn, Mi., until almost 9 p.m. ET, the relatively late start time for an afternoon race is notable because Michigan International Speedway does not have lights.Sunday’s race is scheduled for the same distance as Saturday’s race — 156 laps around the two-mile oval for a total of 312 miles.NASCAR live stream for Michigan raceAnybody who has a cable or satellite subscription can stream Sunday’s NASCAR race at Michigan live via NBCSports.com or the NBC Sports app. This should be the preferred route for a viewer who has such a subscription but isn’t able to get in front of his or her TV.For those who don’t have a cable or satellite subscription, there are five OTT TV streaming options that carry NBC and NBCSN — Sling, Hulu, YouTubeTV, fuboTV and AT&T Now.
