  • WBB : Syracuse enters daunting matchup against UConn with shot at season-defining win

    first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ It’s a matchup that has puzzled Syracuse for more than a decade. With Connecticut on the slate year after year, the burden to knock off the perennial powerhouse looms larger and larger each year.Some players have downplayed the significance, simply taking it as another Big East contest, but guard Elashier Hall cautiously admitted what the contest and a win could potentially mean to Syracuse’s season.‘It means a lot,’ Hall said. ‘UConn is one of the dominating teams in the country, so it would mean a lot for us as a program and as individuals.’Syracuse (13-7, 2-4 Big East) will look to tackle that tall task when it squares off against No. 3 Connecticut (17-2, 6-1) at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Carrier Dome. The Orange has lost 20 straight contests to the Huskies, with its most recent triumph coming more than a decade ago on Jan. 2, 1996, on SU’s home court.A win would seemingly push SU back to the brink of NCAA tournament consideration, a feat that the Orange hasn’t accomplished since the 2007-08 season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘It’s a great opportunity,’ head coach Quentin Hillsman said. ‘Normally we have the opportunity to play the No. 1 team in the country, but right now they’re the No. 3 team in the country. It’s just a great opportunity to play against a great program and against a great team.’The Huskies are undoubtedly the biggest test SU has faced all season. Although last season’s national player of the year, Maya Moore, has moved on to the WNBA, the Huskies haven’t skipped a beat.This year’s UConn team features three players who average more than 14 points per game. The Huskies also have three returning starters from a team that pummeled the Orange 82-47 a season ago.Tiffany Hayes, who scored 18 points in that contest, remains a catalyst in the Huskies’ four-guard lineup this season. Hayes is shooting an astonishing 53.3 percent from the field this season.‘Now they’re a really guard-oriented team,’ Hall said. ‘They have a lot of good shooters, so of course we have to get out on their shooters and just be ready for rotations and penetrations.’Hillsman will combat UConn’s strong guard play with the same consistent formula that he has used all season long. But it won’t come easy for Syracuse center Kayla Alexander and forward Iasia Hemingway. The Huskies are beating opponents by a nation-leading 37.1 points per game behind a defense that yields just 43.7 points per game.SU’s inside duo will have to contend with 6-foot-5 center Stefanie Dolson and 6-foot freshman phenom Kaleena Mosqueda-Lewis on the glass — an area of the game in which both teams excel.‘We’re just going to continue to do the things we’ve been doing,’ Hillsman said. ‘Our scheme is throw the ball inside, and we’re going to continue to do that. That’s our best option right now, throwing the ball to Iasia and Kayla, and that’s what we’re going to do.’The Orange leads the Big East in rebounding this season, averaging 49.1 boards per contest, but the Huskies sit just above SU at sixth in the nation in rebounding margin. Alexander said she knows the matchup will be a physical affair.‘It’s going to be a battle,’ Alexander said. ‘We’re going to have to bang inside, especially in the post. … We’re going to have to go hard on the outside and get out there and contest shots.’The Huskies are coming off a dominating effort over No. 23 DePaul, defeating the Blue Demons by 44 points. Hillsman said when he watches UConn, he sees the team’s capacity to get hot from anywhere on the floor.‘They have a lot of balance, and we can’t key on one or two people because they have the tendency of having three or four going off against you,’ Hillsman said. ‘You just have to play your principles, do the things you’ve done all season, keep them in front of you and be able to contest shots.’[email protected] Published on January 24, 2012 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Commentslast_img read more

  • Editors give students inside look of The Onion

    first_imgThe Onion was unpeeled yesterday during a presentation and Q&A with the satirical publication’s Editor-in-Chief Cole Bolton and Managing Editor Ben Berkley.“It is an absolute pleasure to be here in your finest chemistry room,” Bolton said, immediately bringing the crowd to laughter. “We are America’s finest news source. The history of The Onion is the history of America itself.”After fabricating a laughable story about The Onion’s fictional 1765 origin, Bolton and Berkley launched into a both satirical and informative discussion about tips for success in the professional arena.The two had many suggestions for students looking to get ahead. They suggested finding internships that give back, such as deforestation. Additionally, they stressed the importance of finding a passion, providing humorous “sample passions,” such as scooping, carnival litigation, telling others about your volunteer work and lions. Finally, the crowd of students burst into laughter when these two tips for success flashed up on the screen: be born white and male, and be born with assets exceeding $2.3 million.All jokes aside, the editors explained what goes on behind the scenes. The company is based in Chicago and has 12 full-time writers and editors. Fifteen hundred headlines are pitched every week, and approximately 30 are chosen. The Onion’s writers are used to having their ideas shut down.“Every last thing starts with the headline,” Berkley said. “There are no articles that are written in full and sent to us and submitted.”There is a meeting held once per week during which the writers present a list of headline ideas. Many of them are rejected until they find the perfect fit, one that is eye-catching and surprising. They don’t go for the easy jokes, the ones that have been used repeatedly by other news sources. Bolton and Berkley said the greatest headlines have nuanced angles that aim to entertain and enlighten people, not trick them. The editors want people to understand the joke so they are interested and will read the story.“There’s always people who are just going to read the headline,” Bolton said. “It’s just quicker that way.”Though there is a lot of thought that goes into each headline, the writers are looking for funny stories that are rooted in truth.“We just trust the writers’ room,” Berkley said. “We’ll follow stupidity wherever it goes.”In addition to headlines, visuals are very important for the story, the editors said. The graphics department adds a level of depth to each story. Berkley also praised the writing staff.“Our writers go through hot and cold streaks,” Berkley said. “These are obviously very good writers. Might even say great. They are getting ripped to shreds every day. They have a lot of self-doubt moments, but they ultimately push through it, which makes them admirable and much better writers.”last_img read more

  • Men’s soccer: Badgers prepare for in-state battle against Marquette

    first_imgFollowing an undefeated two-game home stand, the University of Wisconsin-Madison men’s soccer team hits the road for a short trip to face in-state rival Marquette University Wednesday night.The Badgers will look to carry the momentum gathered from last week in a 2-0 victory over St. Louis University and 1-0 win over conference foe Rutgers University.Meanwhile, Marquette has been struggling as of late. The Golden Eagles have been unable to strike a mark in the win column since Sept. 5, when they handed Northwestern University a 4-1 defeat at home. In the team’s last five games, Marquette has gone 2-0-3 after posting three consecutive draws followed by a pair of losses before Wednesday’s battle with UW-Madison. One of these draws came against Wisconsin’s most recent opponent: St. Louis University.Men’s Soccer: Badgers cruise in a rebound win over St. LouisThe Wisconsin men’s soccer team returned home Tuesday in a solid 2-0 non-conference win over Saint Louis University. The Badgers (4-2-1, 2-1-0 Read…For the Badgers, this game not only marks a chance to extend their winning streak to three games, but also a chance to improve their play on the road this season. At this point in the year, the squad has managed a 1-2-1 away record — a frustrating total compared to a 4-0-0 record at home.Recent history between the two teams predicts a tough showdown. While Marquette won last year’s decision 1-0 in Madison, the game was close throughout. Marquette only attempted one more shot than UW-Madison with a 16-15 advantage, but the Golden Eagles made the key difference by placing four more shots on goal. The lone goal and game-winner came on a 77th-minute strike from senior forward Kelmend Islami.Wednesday’s game also marks the first of three in-state matchups for the Badgers this season. After Marquette, UW-Madison will play UW-Green Bay Oct. 11 and UW-Milwaukee a week later.Last year, the Badgers posted a combined record of 1-2-0 record against these three in-state rivals. A win over Marquette would be a step in the right direction toward bragging rights as the best team in the state, a title that could reward UW-Madison in the local recruiting battle.It’s important for the Badgers not to look ahead past their matchup with the Golden Eagles though, given a date with a talented Michigan State University team looms later this week. Friday night’s battle with the Spartons should prove an important conference game with respect to Big Ten standings as the two teams are currently tied for the No. 2 spot.If UW-Madison can focus its full effort on Marquette, the Badgers should leave Milwaukee with a three-game winning streak and a boost of momentum to carry them into East Lansing.last_img read more

  • Esports Integrity Coalition sign MOU with UKGC

    first_imgThe Esports Integrity Coalition (“ESIC”) has made its latest move in signing an information sharing Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) with the UK Gambling Commission. The move will see esports being considered alongside football, cricket and other traditional sports in the detection and prevention of betting malpractice. The move will see the Sports Betting Intelligence Unit (“SBIU”) work alongside ESIC to widen its remit into esports. The SBIU will now deal with reports of betting integrity-related corruption on esports, together with ESIC. It’s not the first Memorandum of Understanding signed with the integrity coalition. The organisation now adds the UKGC to Nevada’s body, which monitors all esports tournaments held in Las Vegas. ESIC will now benefit from the intelligence available from the regulators and in turn, the UKGC and Nevada will benefit from the information gathered from ESIC’s members who are not just licensed in the UK or Nevada – but see esports wagering worldwide. “This MOU is a significant step for ESIC and the esports community,” commented Ian Smith, Commissioner. “The Gambling Commission has significant resources and powers that will be invaluable in helping to combat any emergence of organised crime or serious fraud within our rapidly growing sector.As esports continues to grow successfully, so will the inevitable attempts to profit on the back of that success through illegitimate means. This agreement will help protect all the individuals, teams and companies working so hard to make esports successful for players and fans alike” Smith continued.ESIC will be issuing guidance notes to members in the coming weeks to explain the implications of the MOU, and how it will improve the integrity of the esports gambling scene within the UK.Richard Watson, Programme Director at the Gambling Commission adds, “Esports is a developing sector that offers new challenges for the betting industry, with potential for further market growth. This agreement demonstrates our commitment to supporting ESIC in addressing the potential integrity risks, to help maintain public confidence in esports both as entertainment and for those who wish to place bets on British licensed markets. Esports Insider says: Another big move from ESIC as they continue their good work on integrity in the space. MOUs in both Nevada and the UK are both big news and should go a long way to helping safeguard esports.last_img read more
