first_imgThe women’s golf team enters South Carolina today with momentum and confidence, ready to prove its worth at the E. Watts/Palmetto Intercollegiate Invitational. Coming off a brief three-week break from competition, the Badgers feel rejuvenated and think they haven’t lost any momentum built up over a three-tournament stretch in which the team took second place twice.”We played three weekends in a row, and I actually think that this break in our schedule came at a good time,” head coach Todd Oehrlein said. “[The girls] should be sharp, and we’ve had a great week of practice here leading up to competition.”The team last took to the course in early October, an outing in Iowa in which senior standout Katie Elliot placed first. Elliot has performed well all season, but the standings haven’t reflected as much. “Being able to capitalize and put three solid rounds together for the first time this season felt really good,” Elliot said. “It has given me more confidence and definitely relieved some of the pressure I was feeling. I just had to go out and play.”Two second-place finishes in tournaments with a strong field of competitors would be cause for celebration for some. Wisconsin, however, has maintained a positive mentality and kept the same composure year round, regardless of its previous outing.”The atmosphere is great. [The girls] have worked really hard, and they’re passionate about what they’re doing, and that’s really been consistent around our team all year,” Oehrlein said. “I think that’s one of the reasons they’ve improved and continue to get better — because of their work habit, intensity and passion.”For Elliot, the mental part of the game seemed, at times, overbearing.”I had to stop worrying about trying to control what happened out there and more importantly, stop looking at it as my final season,” Elliot said. “That’s something my coach has really tried to help me with.”Today and tomorrow’s outings will test the team on all levels, as it faces off against one of the strongest fields it has faced all season. The team needs to string together solid performances by each individual if it wants to continue its success on the leader board. “This tournament has a really strong field, and it is going to be a great test for the team, but I’m confident we will do well. We have had a good couple weeks of practice, and the girls that are traveling are eager to play,” Elliot said. “We need to step up to the challenge and capitalize on our opportunities by staying calm, committed and patient.”Oehrlein’s main goal for his team is to just play golf and not worry about the bigger scheme of things.”You always want to compete and perform the best that you can, and that really has to be our focus,” Oehrlein said. “We have to resist the temptation to focus on finishing in a certain position in the field.”Elliot offers a simple approach for her team as it heads to South Carolina.”Just [look] to put up solid scores in each of the three rounds, but in order to do that, you have to go out there and play smart,” Elliot said. “This is a course we can definitely score low on if we stay patient.”Continued improvement will become invaluable as the fairly young Wisconsin team strives to close out the fall season. With several months off, the team would ideally like to end fall with a strong performance that would carry into spring, but Oehrlein only asks that each team member give her best.”Do the absolute best that you can with each individual swing, and if [the girls] do that, I think we’ll have a strong finish, and we’ll see where that puts us,” Oehrlein said. “Play round-by-round, maximizing each individual round and getting better with every hit.”last_img read more

first_imgHead coach Leonid Yelin knew he had a scholarship available for the 2014 season. While he recruited, he found right-side hitter Stacey Smith at the University of Georgia.Yelin had no intentions of starting Smith after her transfer to Syracuse, but due to injuries at outside hitter, he’s been forced to start her six times this season and play her at a position she’d never played before.It hasn’t been successful for Smith and the Orange. Her lone season for SU (8-15, 1-10 Atlantic Coast) has disappointed Yelin as she’s finished four contests with more attack errors than kills — most recently against Louisville on Friday.Smith played two positions in four years at Georgia: middle blocker initially and right-side hitter in her last two years. But she’s struggled to develop her footwork and communication at outside hitter with the Orange.“I’m used to hitting off of one foot. The slide approach which is kind of like a layup in basketball and the two-footed approach on the outside is totally different,” Smith said. “It’s the normal volleyball approach, but it’s not what I’m used to.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor the slide approach as a right-side hitter, Smith stepped left, right, left and leaped using her left foot, finishing the play with a spike.Outside hitters launch using two feet. It involves a four-step approach in which Smith starts on the right foot before alternating feet, jumping off both and plucking the ball out of the air and spiking it.When Yelin recruited Smith, SU had four hitters in Gosia Wlaszczuk, Nicolette Serratore, Valeriya Shaipova and Silvi Uattara. Since then, Wlaszczuk was converted to setter and Serratore and Shaipova suffered season-ending injuries.Smith has played in 67 of the Orange’s 86 sets as SU has searched for an option to complement Uattara. They haven’t found her.Wlaszczuk’s rapport with Uattara, Shaipova and Monika Salkute is naturally better than the one she has with Smith too, as they’ve played together nearly three years.“I know what (other teammates) can give me, I know how they’re handling pressure. Before we had (Shaipova). (Smith) wasn’t even practicing on the side with me,” Wlaszczuk said.Meanwhile, Smith has only been with the team for a summer and three-quarters of the season. Building a relationship with a setter in less than a year is difficult, but adding a mid-season position change ratchets up the difficulty. Wlaszczuk playing setter for the first time in her career increases the difficulty.Against Louisville on Friday, Smith appeared to start her approach to the net and stop around the 10-foot line, caught in limbo. Wlaszczuk then set a ball to the 10-foot line and Smith could barely jump off the ground as she pounded the ball into the Cardinals blocker’s hands.“First of all, I wouldn’t set (to) her, too. How am I supposed to feel? Why am I setting (to Stacey)? I said, ‘Gosia, you feel she’s somebody who’s struggling, leave her for a while.’” Yelin said. “Find out when you know its going to be a good situation, one block and you know she’s going to crush it.’”Yelin wants Smith to emerge as an option to make it harder for other teams to game plan. Uattara and Wlaszczuk are established options, but having Smith and Salkute would make SU’s attack more lethal.The head coach believes the team could have success offensively. But time is running out for Smith and SU’s season.Said Yelin: “If Stacey was giving us more as a hitter, (it) would be (a) huge help. And hopefully, someday it’s going to happen.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 4, 2014 at 12:08 am Contact Chris: cjlibona@syr.edu | @ChrisLibonatilast_img read more

first_imgPhotos by Ralf Cheung. For more photos, check out our photo gallery from the game. The Trojans ushered in the Steve Sarkisian era on Saturday afternoon following a chaotic week in Troy. USC’s 15th-ranked football team silenced all the whispers about senior cornerback Josh Shaw’s suspension and senior running back Anthony Brown’s departure by charging to a 52-13 victory over the Fresno State Bulldogs.The events of the past week proved to be no distraction at all, as the Trojans put up their highest yard total (701) since 2005 in Sarkisian’s first game as USC’s head coach. The Trojans achieved those 701 yards on 105 total plays, which broke the previous Pac-12 record.The Trojans looked a bit shaky out of the gates, as true freshman wide receiver JuJu Smith committed a holding penalty on the opening kickoff and redshirt junior quarterback Cody Kessler nearly threw a pick-six to Fresno State safety Derron Smith on the first play from scrimmage. But from then on, Kessler and Smith were two of USC’s most dynamic players.Kessler proved to have mastered Sarkisian’s new uptempo offense, putting up a career-high 394 yards and tying career-highs with 37 attempts, 25 completions and four touchdown passes. The Bakersfield, California native got the Trojans’ scoring storm started with a one-yard touchdown run on the first drive of the game.Though Kessler’s aerial abilities might have surprised some Trojan fans, Sarkisian insisted that Kessler has always had it in him.“The way [Kessler] throws and his athleticism in short areas is better than a lot of people,” Sarkisian said. “He has the ability to buy time and make plays down the field and throw an excellent ball.”Kessler looked in sync with all of his targets, old and new. He spread the ball out between nine different receivers, including true freshman tight end Bryce Dixon and true freshmen wide receivers Smith and Adoree’ Jackson.Sarkisian lauded the abilities of the group of freshmen.“I’m not surprised, quite honestly, that they were able to go in and play,” Sarkisian said. “We’ve challenged them every single day and thrown them in with the ones, whether it’s JuJu or Adoree’ or Bryce Dixon or the young O-linemen that were in there, all those guys stepped in and played well.”Freshman Ajene Harris was slated to start at wide receiver, but Smith started in his place, and it made a huge difference for the Trojans. Smith, who also wreaked havoc on the defensive side of the ball, eclipsed 100 receiving yards early in the second quarter. Smith achieved that mark on just his fourth reception of the game, a 43-yard catch-and-run, and finished the game with 123 yards.Junior wide receiver Nelson Agholor looked capable of filling former All-American wide receiver Marqise Lee’s shoes at the Trojans’ No. 1 wideout at times, but dropped a few easy catches as well. In addition to hauling in two touchdowns, Agholor had a circus catch that bounced off his helmet and into his hands in the second quarter.After a hign-scoring first quarter for USC, the trains came off the tracks a bit in the second. Sophomore running back Justin Davis lost a fumble on Fresno State’s 42 yard line, but Fresno State quarterback Brandon Connette returned the favor by throwing an interception to senior safety Gerald Bowman. The Trojans handed the ball right back over, though, when redshirt junior running back Javorius “Buck” Allen fumbled again.Like Bowman, junior defensive end Leonard Williams also hauled in the second interception of his career on Saturday.“It felt pretty wild to be honest,” Williams said. “I got one freshman year and even that one felt like it was good luck or something. I never thought I’d get another one. It felt crazy, it just happened so fast.”While Kessler and the Trojan defense flexed their muscle Saturday evening, the Fresno State signal callers struggled all game.Fresno State entered the game with no clear frontrunner at quarterback. Head coach Tim DeRuyter started Brian Burrell, but after he went 3-for-6 with only 14 yards in a little over a quarter of action, DeRuyter replaced Burrell with Connette, who transferred this spring from Duke. The two alternated throughout the game and finished with a combined 150 yards.Though the Bulldogs struggled on offense in the first half, they came out strong to start off the second. The Trojan defense looked sluggish, perhaps letting up a bit after the offense had built up a 31-7 lead at the half.The Bulldogs marched down the field and running back Marteze Waller punched in his second of two rushing touchdowns on the day. After a failed extra point by Fresno State kicker Colin McGuire, the score sat at 31-13.The Trojan offense responded, though, reeling off two straight touchdowns after that to increase their lead to 45-13. Allen, the 2013 team MVP, busted through Fresno State’s defense for a 9-yard touchdown before Kessler connected with Dixon for the Oxnard, California native’s first receiving touchdown as a Trojan.Kessler and the crop of freshmen stole the show, but there’s much to be said about USC’s defense as well — the Trojans held the Bulldogs to 317 total yards of offense, most of which came in the second half.With such a big lead in the second half Sarkisian allowed redshirt freshman quarterback Max Browne to get his first reps as a Trojan. Browne looked like a capable future leader, going 4-for-5 for 30 yards.Despite the record-setting performance and the impressive debuts of so many freshmen, Sarkisian seemed most proud of the fact that his team had fun. But it’s not all fun and games, as the Trojans must now prepare to head north to Palo Alto, California to begin Pac-12 play against Stanford, who has been a thorn in USC’s side for years.“We’ll enjoy it for a moment,” Sarkisian said. “We gotta get back to work.”last_img read more

first_img Published on February 15, 2016 at 8:31 pm Syracuse (18-8, 8-5 Atlantic Coast) has now won eight of its last nine games and faces a tough test in No. 18 Louisville (19-6, 8-4), who self-imposed an NCAA Tournament ban. The Orange finishes the season with two home games and two away games after it plays the Cardinals. With ACC play winding down, beat writers Sam Blum, Jesse Dougherty and Matt Schneidman discuss three questions surrounding Syracuse basketball.1. Which games left on Syracuse’s schedule are must-wins and why?Sam Blum: It’s important that Syracuse wins three of its last five games to put itself in great position to not only be a lock for the NCAA Tournament, but also have favorable seeding and possibly the (always feared) double-bye in the ACC tournament. Syracuse must win at home against North Carolina State. The Orange is stockpiling good wins, but a bad loss like that does a lot of damage. Then they really must win either at home against Pittsburgh or on the road at Florida State. Three out of five would be nice, but two out of five is a must.Jesse Dougherty: The only must-win games left for Syracuse are against Pittsburgh and N.C. State, which are the two home games left on the schedule. After that, I don’t think the Orange “has to” beat any of Louisville, North Carolina and Florida State on the road, although a win over the Seminoles would help avoid any tournament-bid question marks.Matt Schneidman: In order to solidify a bid to the NCAA Tournament, I think Syracuse has to win three of its last five games. That would mean matchups against Pittsburgh, N.C. State and Florida State are must-wins since games against Louisville and North Carolina are acceptable losses, at least moreso than the others. None of the final five games on the Orange’s regular season schedule would be considered “bad losses” because even N.C. State (who sits 3-10 in conference) has arguably the most talented player in the league in Anthony “Cat” Barber. But the home stretch of the season is when a team like Syracuse, one that’s straddling the bubble even if it’s on the good side as of now, can’t afford any sort of loss to a team it should beat.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text2. The last time Syracuse severely lost the rebounding battle was against Pittsburgh (-18). Is SU’s improvement on the boards the new normal for the Orange?S.B.: It’s as though the answer to that question is in the question itself. It certainly is one of the most underrated aspects of Syracuse’s success, and better rebounding has coincided with more wins. But better rebounding has also coincided with better defense. And better defense typically means more missed shots, which means more chances to get defensive rebounds. But this team, as Jim Boeheim said on Monday, is gradually getting better in almost every aspect. It’s been a fun evolution to watch.J.D.: It’s really hard to judge rebounding success, especially because so much of it is tied to how many shots Syracuse’s opponents are missing (which has been more and more as the zone has tightened up in the last month or so). But it does seem that the Orange is an improved team on the glass, and you’d have to think that Dajuan Coleman is going to continue to be a big factor on the defensive glass since his absences have coincided with a lot of the Orange’s “rough” rebounds stretches. Coleman doesn’t necessarily have to be grabbing the rebounds himself, but having his strength and size in the middle of the zone goes a long way in helping his teammates get the job done on the defensive glass.M.S.: Syracuse has outrebounded its opponents in eight of the last 10 games, so yes, it’s definitely become the new normal. The days of being outrebounded by double digits are gone and Wisconsin’s +26 margin on the glass in SU’s first loss of the season seems like eons ago. The key to this turnaround has been Tyler Lydon, who has asserted himself as a physical presence on the interior. Sure, he’s still getting pushed around on occasion (see: Boston College’s Dennis Clifford taking him off the dribble on back-to-back possessions) but starting with a nine-rebound performance against Duke and Marshall Plumlee, the SU freshman has nicely complemented his expanding offensive game with more of a reinforcement to Tyler Roberson down low.3. Matt Milon is just the latest player to hurt SU without much of a history of high scoring. Why does that frequently happen and will it hurt Syracuse down the stretch?S.B.: Everyone is going to have a career night some night. I know that the rhetoric is that Syracuse always gives up big games to unknowns, but I’d be willing to bet it doesn’t happen to SU more than it does anyone else. The Orange is always a team that is subject to get burned by outside shooters. It literally always combats that problem by extending the zone. It’s like Boeheim lulls teams into a sense of confidence, and then takes that away. Milon made one 3-pointer in the second half. So clearly there’s a way to stop the bleeding when necessary.J.D.: Let’s get something straight: Weird players lighting up the scoreboard is not a “Syracuse thing.” It’s a “college basketball thing.” Even further than that, it’s a “sports thing.” Teams logically prepare for the other team’s best players and, in turn, unlikely scorers, or heroes if you will, show up in box scores across college basketball every night. With that said, Milon scored 25 points for Boston College with the Orange held the Eagles’ best scorer, Eli Carter, to seven points while making just 2-of-9 shots. Yes, it’s never good to let any player to score 25 points, but SU shut down the player that BC runs its offense through and a 14-point win was the result.M.S.: From T.J. Sorrentine in the first round of the 2005 NCAA Tournament to Milon on Sunday, it seems that some no-name sharpshooter always gets the best of the Syracuse zone. Don’t buy into the myth. It’s how the zone works. Some shooters will get hot and buy real estate from beyond the stretches of the zone and hit a couple in a row. It happened with Pittsburgh’s Lamar Patterson two years ago and it happens with bigger-name players than ones like Milon. The less popular names just stand out more and it’s fun for everyone to pick them out. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
