Men’s tennis team hosts Ohio State in season finale

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s tennis team (8-12, 2-7 Big Ten) hopes to end their regular season with a Big Ten victory today when they play host to No. 30 Ohio State (16-6, 7-1) at 3 p.m. at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium.While Wisconsin has a 32-29 all-time record against Ohio State, the Buckeyes have won the last nine matches including victories over the Badgers in the Big Ten Championships over the past four years. In last year’s regular season match, the Buckeyes shut out the Badgers 7-0 in Columbus.Today’s match will play a large factor in determining Wisconsin’s seeding for the upcoming Big Ten tournament. A victory for the Badgers will guarantee the No. 9 seed, however, a Wisconsin loss and Iowa win will drop the Badgers to the No. 10 seed. Although Ohio State has secured the No. 2 seed regardless of today’s outcome, head coach Pat Klingelhoets does not see the Buckeyes taking the match lightly.“We’re going to have to play really well,” Klingelhoets said. “They’re a real solid team — doubles is good, singles lineup is good all the way down. We’re going to have to play one of our better matches of the year, so hopefully we can catch a couple of their guys a little off and have a chance to win.”The Bulgarian duo of brothers Alex and Lachezar Kasarov will have their hands full in the No. 1 doubles match, as they will most likely face the Ohio State partnership of juniors Scott Green and Ross Wilson, which is ranked No. 1 in the ITA doubles poll. At the No. 3 doubles spot, Wisconsin freshman Jeremy Sonkin and junior Mark Weinig look to continue their strong play following a victory over Illinois last week. The two will square off against the tandem of sophomore Joey Atlas and freshman Drew Eberly who have lost only once in their last 14 matches.In singles action, Klingelhoets is anticipating close matches throughout, and believes inclement weather could play in Wisconsin’s favor, as the match would be moved indoors, giving the Badgers a home court advantage. “There’s going to be some really good matches,” Klingelhoets said. “I guess I’m looking forward to seeing how our top guys, Alex [Kasarov] and Jeremy [Sonkin], can step up and get it done against some really strong players — but there is going to be good matches all the way down the line. Hopefully [the courts] will help us a little bit. We’re really comfortable on these courts so if we do go indoors then I think that could help us out, but we’ll wait and see on the weather.”At the No. 1 singles position, senior Alex Kasarov will play his final match at the Nielsen Tennis Stadium against No. 56 Devin Mullings. The sophomore Mullings, 24-8 overall in singles, is currently riding a 13-match win streak and was honored as the Big Ten Athlete of the Week on April 20.Mullings’ teammate, junior Ross Wilson, has also been playing inspirationally lately, winning 13 out of his last 15 matches at the No. 6 singles position.Ohio State’s overall singles lineup is an opposing coach’s nightmare due to each player’s athletic ability and the assortment of playing styles each has to offer. “They’ve got a lot of variety,” Klingelhoets said. “They got a guy like Scott Green who is a pure serve-and-volley player, but then they’ve also got a number of guys who just like to sit on the baseline and grind it out too. [Devin] Mullings, who might play the one spot, he will just sit back and hit a million balls, [Chris] Klingemann is the same way … they have a good combination of guys and they’re all good players.”Despite the Buckeyes’ superior record, Wisconsin freshman Jeremy Sonkin does not feel intimidated and has instead focused his attention on earning a better seed in the Big Ten Tournament.“[Ohio State] is going to be a big match,” Sonkin said. “We really want this one because it will help us a lot with the seeding for the Big Ten tournament and give us a better shot. We really need to come out on fire … all the guys need to be ready to go, well-rested and ready to play because it’s going to be a tough match all throughout the lineup. I think if we give it our best effort and fight as hard as we can, we can come out with the win.”last_img read more

NCAA investigation reportedly involves internship hours, connections between Syracuse athletes, Tri-Valley YMCA

first_imgAn internship program involving Syracuse athletes and their connection with Tri-Valley YMCA in Oneida, New York is part of the NCAA’s inquiry in its investigation of Syracuse Athletics, the Post-Standard reported Monday afternoon.The NCAA concluded its investigation at a hearing in Chicago last month and Syracuse is awaiting the announcement of violations, if any, which the NCAA said would be announced 30–60 days after the investigation came to an end.The documentation of hours completed by athletes for internships at the YMCA, along with who was responsible for approving those hours, is included in the possible violations, The Post-Standard reported.The internship under question was part of a requirement to graduate with a degree in child and family studies, a popular major among Syracuse University athletes. Eighteen percent of football players were enrolled in that major from 2004–05, the time in which investigators are looking at, according to The Post-Standard.Hank Leo, the chief executive officer of the Tri-Valley YMCA and a former tutor for Syracuse football, attended the NCAA hearing last month, Leo’s lawyer, Robert Whitaker, told The Post-Standard. Whitaker also told The Post-Standard that the NCAA didn’t accuse the YMCA of any faults.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the former sports director of Tri-Valley YMCA, Jeff Cornish, is the one under investigation for providing extra benefits to SU men’s basketball and football players, The Post-Standard reported.The Post-Standard also obtained a lawsuit that shows the YMCA sued Cornish in state Supreme Court in 2008. It claimed that Cornish set up a bank account using the YMCA’s not-for-profit tax ID number without permission and redirected possibly as much as $338,462 for his own use. It’s unknown how much of or if this money was used or if any was given to SU athletes, the Post-Standard added.The YMCA had close ties with Syracuse athletes, and the athletes participated in charity events to raise funds for the YMCA, the Post-Standard reported, but specified that it is unknown whether any of these events are part of the investigation.

Men’s basketball: Badgers need to lock down win against Nebraska

first_imgThe pressure is on for Wisconsin men’s basketball to notch victories in winnable games and they’ll be put to the test when they host Nebraska Wednesday night.Looking for their sixth-straight win, Wisconsin (14-9 overall, 6-4 Big Ten) will have to contain a hot-shooting Nebraska team (13-11 Overall, 5-6 Big Ten) at the Kohl Center.The Badgers only have seven games remaining in their regular season schedule, including matchups against ranked opponents such as No. 2 Maryland, No. 4 Iowa and No. 8 Michigan State.Last time outWisconsin was impressive in their 79-68 victory over Ohio State last Thursday.Men’s basketball: Badgers use three-point stroke to get past Buckeyes for fifth straight victoryThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team overcame a horrendous night of free throw shooting to pull away from the Ohio Read…The Badgers rode their three-point shooting to victory, knocking down 13 of 27 from downtown. Sophomore Jordan Hill hit three of those for nine points in a solid bench outing, while Nigel Hayes, Bronson Koenig and Ethan Happ each had more than 10 points.The win made Wisconsin’s case for a tournament bid all the more plausible and set them up for a promising last stretch of the season.Wisconsin’s key to victoryLong-range shooting:Wisconsin’s range from three-point territory made its offense increasingly versatile in the Ohio State game.Six different Badgers hit at least one three-pointer, which made Ohio State commit to defending the perimeter and opened up driving lanes to the basket.As a team that is often more comfortable with layups than pure shooting, Wisconsin should look to continue this trend. As the team has found its groove, better shot opportunities have encouraged more outside shots since the beginning of the season, which makes the process even easier.Opposing player to watch: Andrew WhiteWhite will most likely not have right-hand man Shavon Shields by his side against the Badgers. That means almost all of Nebraska’s offense will be channeled through the junior guard who averages 17.2 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1 steal.White has consistently hovered around the 20-point mark for the past four games, but will need to produce more without Shields, who is recovering from a scary fall against Rutgers.last_img read more

Prisoners arrive in St. Lucia from BVI

first_imgSeven so-called ‘high risk’ prisoners from the British Virgin Islands (BVI)  arrived in St. Lucia on Monday to continue serving their sentences at the Bordelais Correctional Facility (BCF). The arrival of the prisoners falls under an agreement reached between the two countries following the passage of Hurricane Irma late last month which damaged the main prison in the BVI.The group of prisoners arrived on a Royal Air Force Airbus that touched down at Hewanorra International Airport (HIA). They were later transported and were transported under heavily armed guard to the Bordelais facility.Government offers temporary housing St. Lucia Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, had earlier announced that his government had agreed to temporarily house prisoners from the BVI, after the prison there was severely damaged during the passage of the hurricane.Fears allayedThe BCF has sought to allay public fears about the presence of the foreign prisoners indicating that special arrangements have been in place to ensure the visitors are secured and no threat to St. Lucia residents.BCF programs manager, Virginia Lesmond-Joseph, told the media on  Monday evening that the  BVI inmates, whom she described as ‘high risk’, will be separated from the general population. “Our capacity is supposed to be five hundred but presently we are at our lowest,” Lesmond-Joseph said.150 prisoners originally escapedOne hundred and fifty (150) inmates escaped after the BVI facility was damaged by Hurricane Irma on September 6, but most were recaptured and some returned on their own.Only six “low risk” prisoners remain at large, BVI officials said.last_img read more

Mission Impossible: Hearts of Oak hold WAFA away for first point in 5 years

first_imgAccra Hearts of Oak secured their first point in 5 years at Sogakope-based Wafa, after playing out an exciting 0-0 draw in the Premier League on Wednesday afternoon.Hearts of Oak head coach opted to hand Emmanuel Nettey a debut and his partnership with Benjamin Afutu and Frederick Ansah Botchway caused Wafa all kinds of problems in the first half.Hearts dominated, created the better chances and controlled the game in the opening exchanges and limiting a usually dominant Wafa side to attacking from counter attacks.Wafa goalkeeper, Ferdinand Sabi was made to work to keep his team in the game, collecting a long drive from Nettey before tipping over Botchway’s corner kick that looked destined to loop in.The first half ended with Hearts of Oak the better side, assured and untroubled.After the break, Hearts goalie, Richard Attah, pulled off an impossible save at full stretch to deny Forson Amankwah’s left footed free-kick that seemed destined for the top corner.Not long after that, Kojo Obeng Junior was down the other end, released by Benjamin Afutu from a neat one-two and with Joseph Esso waiting unmarked in the area, Obeng Junior opted to shoot but his tame left-footed strike was calmly collected by Sabi.Esso was furious.As Wafa threw everything forward in search of a goal, Hearts of Oak embarked on a mission to starve them of the ball as much as possible.Odoom took out striker Kofi Kordzi and brought in midfielder Nurudeen Abdul for his debut.Daniel Owusu’s weak shot into the waiting arks of Attah had everyone at the Wafa Park gasping for air in disbelief.That was the last significant action as referee Alphonso Atiapaj brought proceedings to an end. Hearts of Oak had secured their first point at Wafa for the first time in 5 seasons.last_img read more

Inside the Dodgers: Who were the most and least clutch Dodgers of all-time?

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season This logic fails to hold water when you consider that 86 non-Hall of Famers with 5,000 career plate appearances were more “clutch” than Baines. Number 1 on this list is Tony Taylor, a light-hitting infielder from the 60’s and 70’s who was an All-Star in one of his 19 major league seasons. I won’t tell Hawk Harrelson what Tony Taylor hit, but suffice it to say Taylor never got much Hall of Fame consideration despite raising his game in the clutch more than almost anyone in baseball history.So, who are the most “clutch” Dodgers of all-time?Setting a minimum threshold of 10 career hits, Baseball Reference allows us to research this data going back to the beginning of the Brooklyn era. You’ll probably find the answer satisfying. The most clutch Dodger ever is also regarded as one of the best hitters in franchise history: Pee Wee Reese.The top 10:1. Reese, 7.6 How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire 2. Ron Fairly, 5.93. Arky Vaughan 5.64. Bill Russell 5.15. Adrian Gonzalez 4.56. Maury Wills 4.27. Willie Davis 3.88. Pete Reiser 3.79. Steve Sax/Billy Herman/Dolph Camilli 3.4Perhaps not surprisingly, the highest-ranked current Dodger on the list is Kyle Farmer (1.1). Farmer has only 22 career hits but has driven in 11 runs, including a walk-off, pinch-hit RBI in his first career plate appearance.The least clutch Dodgers of all-time are, perhaps counterintuitively, not pitchers. Remember, to be truly bad at this, you have to perform below your personal standard in lots of clutch situations over years and years.Yasmani Grandal and Yasiel Puig (-4.0) are particularly un-clutch. Duke Snider (-4.1) was even worse. Gary Sheffield (-4.5) is worse than that. But the absolute least clutch Dodgers of all-time are still on the team’s roster: Joc Pederson (-4.6) and Matt Kemp (-5.0). How about that: Four of the six least clutch hitters in franchise history were on the team last year.I wonder what Hawk Harrelson would have said watching that.-J.P.This article is from the Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Sign up to get the newsletter in your in-box.Related Articles In doing research for a column today, I ran across this quote from longtime Chicago White Sox broadcaster Hawk Harrelson: “Don’t tell me what a guy hits. Tell me when he hits it.”You won’t believe this: there’s a stat for that.It’s called, simply, “clutch.” The purpose of the stat is to compare how well a hitter hits in high-leverage situations compared to how well he hits in all situations. You can find a more detailed explanation, including the math, over on FanGraphs.Harrelson was speaking in 2008, in praise of recently minted Hall of Famer Harold Baines. Harrelson asserted that Baines was among the most “clutch” hitters he ever saw. Indeed, if this is the primary criterion for judging a hitter’s worthiness of Cooperstown, Baines stacks up pretty well. Only 24 Hall of Famers were more clutch than Baines.

Two COVID-19 cases reported in Hancock County, local health officials ask you to make prevention a priority

first_imgMASON CITY — Cerro Gordo County health officials say they encourage all residents to continue making prevention a priority after the reporting of the first cases of COVID-19 in our area.Two cases of coronavirus in Cerro Gordo County were reported over the weekend, with both of those cases being adults who are in the 18-to-40-year-old range. Another case was reported in Kossuth County, with that also being a case in an 18-to-40-year-old. State public health officials this morning reported two more cases in Hancock County, with both being older adults ages 61-to-80.CG Public Health spokeswoman Emily Dunbar says they certainly won’t be the last cases of COVID-19 in our listening area.  “We will continue to see more cases more than likely, but it’s important for people to remember to stay home, if at all possible work from home, especially stay home if you’re sick, continue to practice those general infection control measures like washing your hands, covering your cough, and just staying home and you’re sick is just so important.”US Surgeon General Jerome Adams told NBC News this morning that “I want America to understand — this week, it’s going to get bad” when delivering a somber message about the spread of coronavirus. Dunbar says the county health department agrees and says they are prepared for what’s ahead.  “It’s different when it hits home, but we’ve been preparing for this for almost two months, since the end of January. We’ve got plans in place. We are communicating daily with our partners. We’re thinking ahead, that’s our job is to protect those people and plan for the unexpected and sometimes the inevitable.”Dunbar says if you do have to go out and shop for essential items, remember to keep your distance from others and to cover your coughs and sneezes.  “We’ve been hearing a lot about social distancing, so keeping six feet away from everyone surrounding you is the best way to limit the spread of the virus. Droplets is how that spread, so if we can maintain six feet from those around us. I know it’s hard when we’re right in front of us, someone that’s checking out our groceries or what-not, so that’s where it comes down to an individual matter. Cover your cough, please think of others.”Dunbar says most of those infected with COVID-19 will experience only mild to moderate illness and staying at home is the best option.  “Remember that this virus is 80% mild symptoms and you can recover at home. Your  diagnosis as far as having COVID or not having COVID, the treatment plan is going to be the same. Stay home and recover and monitor your symptoms if they worsen, and drinking fluids.”Dunbar reminds people that if they have general questions about COVID-19 to call the county’s call center, but if people think they have severe symptoms that could be coronavirus to call the Mercy Family Health Line.   If you have general questions, you can call the county’s hotline 494-3543, 494-3546 or 494-3547. “If you are feeling ill as far as fever shortness of breath and cough please call the Mercy One Health Line at 641-428-7777.”For guidelines on self-isolation or recovering at home, click here or go to cghealth.comlast_img read more
