first_imgIn the final regular-season game for both Batesville and Heritage Christian, both teams failed to find the back of the net in a 0-0 draw.  The Bulldogs came out with good energy and controlled the play most of the game.

Indian Premier League IPL 2019: Delhi Capitals has one of the best bowling attacks, says Ishant Sharma

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: India speedster Ishant Sharma believes his IPL franchise Delhi Capitals has one of the best bowling attacks for the upcoming edition of the event. The Delhi Capitals boast of a perfect combination of fast and spin bowlers with the likes of New Zealand pacer Trent Boult and Kagiso Rabada in their side, according to Ishant.     “Our team has picked up some great bowling options in the squad and with the likes of Trent Boult and Kagiso Rabada also in the team. I think we have one of the best bowling line-ups this time. We have some very good all-rounders along with great spinners, which shall help us in restricting teams from scoring freely,” Ishant said.Talking about his goals, the Indian pacer said he is eager to take more wickets in the IPL, starting March 23. “I feel there is a huge ambition for me this season. I am very focused on taking more wickets throughout the tournament instead of just bowling well.“Of course, taking wickets depends on how well you bowl, but the most important thing is that you use your good performance by helping the team in taking important wickets,” said the 30-year-old. Ishant, who has taken 58 wickets with an economy of 8.2 in his IPL career, believes that his team has a great blend of pacers and spinners in the squad. Speaking on his return to Delhi, Ishant said he is extremely happy to represent his home city in the IPL.“I have played for different teams in the IPL but it makes me immensely happy to be able to represent Delhi Capitals this season. Being a Delhi boy, it is a great chance for me to represent my home side and my most important target is to make the Capitals win the coveted title,” said the lanky bowler.“It will be crucial for us to start well against Mumbai Indians in their home ground. We know the crowd will be behind them, but our team has enough experience to tackle the pressure and perform against a strong line-up. We are all looking forward to playing our first match of this exciting new season,” Ishant said. last_img read more

With return from ankle injury, Oklahoma State’s Hunter back to doing what he loves

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 14, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Kendall Hunter couldn’t help but feel the irritation coming on. Unable to play, he had let the pain from his busted ankle get all the way to his head. Many had started to question the Oklahoma State running back’s talents as he struggled and played through the ankle injury last season. He started only two games and ran the ball just 89 times for less than 400 yards in for the Cowboys. But the worst part for Hunter, the Big 12’s leading rusher in 2008, was frustration that he couldn’t be out on the field doing what he loves. Playing time in every game was hit or miss week to week. The waiting became too much, mentally. ‘It was a waiting process,’ Hunter said. ‘It was just one of those nagging injuries that was like, ‘OK, I’ll be back next week.’ I kept thinking that, and then the more I was out, the more frustrated I was getting.’ But this year, it’s the opposing defenses that are getting frustrated with Hunter now 100 percent healthy. The soft-spoken senior has stormed into the 2010 season with 414 yards and six touchdowns through Oklahoma State’s (2-0) first two games this season. The disappointment from last year has all but disappeared as Hunter’s rushing total currently ranks second in the country.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Now the love has crept back in. ‘I just love the game,’ Hunter said. ‘Love to be out there having fun. Love to have the ball in my hands.’ Hunter quelled any doubts about health in OSU’s first game against Washington State (1-1) by exploding for 208 yards and three touchdowns — in the first half. He tacked on another score early in the third before being pulled from the Cowboys’ 65-17 win. The senior followed that performance with a 157-yard, two-touchdown outburst in Oklahoma State’s 41-38 win over Troy (1-1) Saturday. He also took a kick return 100 yards for an apparent score against the Trojans, but it was called back on a penalty. Offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen said it’s the 5-foot-8, 200-pound Hunter’s deceptive strength that separates him from other running backs. ‘The kid’s strong,’ he said. ‘His strength is unbelievable. He’s got good quickness. He’s got good balance. He’s got good speed. But he’s stronger than people think he is.’ Holgorsen joined the Cowboys coaching staff this season after coaching at Texas Tech and Houston for the past nine years. The Red Raiders and the Cougars have been known to throw the ball 50 times per game and use screens and short passes as their running game. But with a back like Hunter, Holgorsen said he has no issue keeping the ball on the ground. The Cowboys did go to the air 39 times against Troy, but also ran the ball on 37 plays, with Hunter getting 28 of those carries. Those numbers did come as a small surprise to Holgorsen. But he added they were somewhat reflective of his senior running back’s character. In his mind, those 28 touches were a quiet 28 touches, just like most of the things Hunter does. ‘You forget he’s there because he doesn’t ever say anything,’ Holgorsen said. ‘Even (against Troy), he didn’t rip off very many long ones. I was surprised to hear that he carried it 28 times. He was just consistently getting five to eight to five to eight to five to eight and moving the chains a lot. ‘You got a guy as reliable as that, and it makes your job as a play-caller a lot easier.’ Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy is also pleased with the way Hunter has recovered this season. The Big 12 has seen some good numbers from its running backs this season. But Hunter is on top of that group once again. ‘There are several running backs, obviously, that are playing very well,’ Gundy said in the Big 12 coaches teleconference Monday. ‘We’re proud of what Kendall’s accomplished here.’ And for Hunter, this is his way of proving himself. He said this shows he is the running back who led the conference in rushing two years ago, not the one who was frustrated with an injury last year. The statistics thus far demonstrate that to the rest of the country. But he added it’s not about the numbers or individual accolades. It’s about doing what he loves. ‘I’m just out there having fun and doing what I can to help the team win,’ Hunter said. ‘It just feels real good to be back out there having fun and playing with my teammates.’ Big Man On Campus Denard Robinson Sophomore Quarterback Michigan Last Week’s Stats: 24-for-40, 244 passing yards, 1 TD, 258 rushing yards, 2 TDs In his first start as Michigan’s quarterback, Robinson set a school record in rushing yards for a quarterback and total offense while engineering the Wolverines’ 30-10 home win over Connecticut. In his second start Saturday at Notre Dame, Robinson shattered those marks, boosting Michigan into the Top 25 for the first time this season, and may have established himself as college football’s most exciting player. Against the Fighting Irish (1-1), Robinson scored on an 87-yard touchdown run and, with the Wolverines (2-0) down by three, drove the ball down the field before sealing the 28-24 win on a two-yard touchdown run with 27 seconds left. Through two games, Robinson has compiled an unheard of 855 yards of total offense by himself. He also leads the country in rushing (running backs included) with 455 yards on the ground. He’s also pushed himself to the top of many Heisman Trophy lists with his performance thus far. Team of the Week No. 7 Oklahoma (2-0) Last Week’s Result: W, 47-17 vs. Florida State (1-1) After barely squeezing past Utah State 31-24 in Week 1, Oklahoma looked like it may be in trouble with Atlantic Coast Conference power Florida State coming to Norman, Okla. And then came the first half. The Sooners stomped on Florida State early and jumped out to a 34-7 halftime lead. The defense kept Seminole quarterback Christian Ponder in check, holding him to 11-for-28 passing, 113 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. On the other side of the ball, OU’s Landry Jones threw for 380 yards and four touchdowns to power the Sooners’ offense. Sooners head coach Bob Stoops improved his record against ranked opponents at home to 14-0 with the win. zjbrown@syr.edulast_img read more

WBB : Syracuse pressure defense stifles Marquette in win

first_img Published on February 18, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: | @chris_iseman Facebook Twitter Google+ It seems after every game Syracuse has played, Quentin Hillsman has had to explain why SU appeared to abandon its pressure defense. Hillsman always has the answer, often marked with frustration at his team’s offensive woes.When the Orange didn’t hit shots, it couldn’t set up the press.Finally, against Marquette, Syracuse controlled both ends of the floor. It drained shots from the outside and, perhaps most importantly, gave the Golden Eagles fits with its pressure defense.‘We knew that we needed to get into our pressure,’ Hillsman said. ‘But when you don’t score, you can’t press. Obviously, shooting 54 percent from the field allowed us to get into our pressure. I thought that was big for us.’Syracuse turned that hot shooting night into a defensive showcase, overwhelming Marquette’s offense with its full-court press to the tune of 21 forced turnovers in its 79-63 win Saturday in the Carrier Dome. The Orange scored a stellar 32 points off those turnovers, showcasing Hillsman’s season-long defensive game plan that has rarely been possible to implement.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange came into the game looking to increase its intensity at both ends of the floor. And its effective use of its press reflected that plan precisely.‘We were just real intense up top,’ guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. ‘A lot of energy, a lot of effort and we had our hands ready and were in the passing lanes. So we’re just getting after it.’Syracuse made it evident early that it was going to rely on its defense to help propel it to a win. That became especially important after Marquette started the game on a 6-0 run, prompting Hillsman to call a timeout to give Syracuse time to regroup and refocus on its game plan.A little more than five minutes into the game, Tyson-Thomas stole the ball away from Golden Eagles’ point guard Gabi Minix and passed it off to forward Iasia Hemingway, who dished it down low to center Kayla Alexander for a layup to pull SU within two.Barely 10 seconds later, Alexander stole the ball from Minix, leading to a jumper from guard Elashier Hall to tie the game at 6-6, and the Orange hit its defensive stride for the rest of the day.Guard Phylesha Bullard, who started in place of Tyson-Thomas, put on a defensive clinic at times. With just more than seven minutes elapsed in the second half, Bullard stole the ball away on an inbounds pass, then scored a fast-break layup to put Syracuse up 53-39.‘We knew we needed this game,’ Hall said, ‘so off the break we wanted to set the pace and get the momentum going for us.’When the Orange fell back into its zone, it still managed to frustrate MU’s offense but not nearly as successfully. With SU’s zone running smoothly, Marquette tried to beat Syracuse in the half court. In the first half, MU attempted six 3-pointers and hit three of them.After halftime, the Golden Eagles found its shooting stroke once again and drained four more 3-pointers. But the seven 3s Marquette sank weren’t enough to knock the Orange out of the game.Several times after MU grabbed a defensive rebound, its shooters raced back on offense and rushed shots to beat SU’s zone in transition, but most clanked off the rim. The Golden Eagles managed to get the deficit to four with less than 16 minutes to go in the second half, but that’s as close as they would get for the rest of the game.SU’s defense, specifically its press, was too tough to beat.‘I thought that at one point when we pulled the press off and went back to our zone, we got five straight stops and got it to 20, 22 points,’ Hillsman said. ‘And we came out, had some miscues and they just made some 3s.’The Orange needed this win coming off two straight losses to Notre Dame and Louisville. With its offense hitting shots from the outside, Syracuse was in perfect position to take advantage of its pressure defense.And against Marquette, it did so effectively, and it did so with a purpose.‘They were in the same mode we were in: desperation,’ Hillsman said. ‘We both needed this win, and obviously, our kids came out really competing.’cjiseman@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more

‘Crazy’ Transfer Deals set to Break Record in England

first_imgFootball finance expert Rob Wilson says the market “hyper-inflation” means anyone selling to an English club is adding “at least 40%, if not 50%, to the deal”.And football agent Jon Smith says a £30m transfer – such as goalkeeper Jordan Pickford’s move from Sunderland to Everton – is “the new norm”.This week Deloitte released its annual football finances, which revealed record revenues of £3.6bn for Premier League clubs in 2015-16 – and that was the year before an improved TV broadcasting rights deal kicked in.It predicted that figure would be more like £4.5bn at the end of this coming season.Its report also said overall debt is falling and forecast the 20 clubs combined would return to profitability in the coming years.This transfer window comes a year after the new £5.136bn TV deal kicked in – a 71% rise on the £3bn negotiated in 2013.In the 2014 window – also one year after the previous broadcast deal was struck – Lukaku, then 21, was sold by Chelsea to Everton for £28m. The Belgian forward’s move to Manchester United is for an initial £75m, which represents a 168% increase in value in three years.Also in 2014, Swansea signed Icelandic playmaker Sigurdsson from Tottenham for a reported £6.8m. The Welsh club now value the Leicester and Everton target at £50m – a 635% increase in value.“Revenues keep going up, predominantly because of the rise in broadcast rights values,” said Chris Stenson, a senior consultant from Deloitte’s sports business group.“Every Premier League club now has more money and are willing to spend that on players,” he said.“It is the wealthiest league in the world and increasing its value makes it more attractive to sponsors and commercial partners.“So far we estimate Premier League clubs have spent about £500m in the transfer window, compared with £340m at the equivalent stage last year.”Once considered a landmark fee, £30m deals are now becoming more regular. There were 10 for at least that amount last summer, and already eight which could yield that much this time round.Pickford became the most expensive British keeper in history after Everton paid £25m – rising to what would be a club-record £30m – to sign the 23-year-old from Sunderland. Everton also spent £30m to bring in Michael Keane from Burnley.“There are players like him who would probably have been worth £12m a couple of years ago going for £30m,” said Smith, formerly a players’ agent.“£30m is a very big number, but it’s become the norm.”However Wilson, of Sheffield Hallam University, said it was unclear whether transfer values might still rise further over the next few years.“I can’t see the value of the English deal increasing because Sky and BT Sport haven’t picked up the subscription numbers they were hoping for,” he said.“Logic therefore says the value of transfers won’t rise over the next five years, although there is room for increased international TV rights packages.”Biggest transfer fees paid by Premier League clubs so far – summer 2017Romelu Lukaku (Everton – Manchester United) £75m, rising to £90mAntonio Rudiger (Roma – Chelsea) £29m, could rise to £33.3mAlexandre Lacazette (Lyon- Arsenal) £46.5m rising to £52.6mVictor Lindelof (Benfica – Manchester United) £31mBernardo Silva (Monaco – Manchester City) £43mMichael Keane (Burnley – Everton) Rising to £30mEderson Moraes (Benfica – Manchester City) £35mJordan Pickford (Sunderland to Everton) £25m, rising to £30mMohamed Salah (Roma – Liverpool) £34mDavy Klaassen (Ajax – Everton) £23.6mBiggest transfer fees paid by Premier League clubs – summer 2014Angel di Maria (Real Madrid – Manchester United) £59.7mAnder Herrera (Athletic Bilbao – Manchester United) £29mAlexis Sanchez (Barcelona – Arsenal) £35mRomelu Lukaku (Chelsea – Everton) £28mDiego Costa (Atletico Madrid – Chelsea) £32mLuke Shaw (Southampton – Manchester United) £27m (could rise to £31m)Eliaquim Mangala (FC Porto – Manchester City) £32mAdam Lallana (Southampton – Liverpool) £25mCesc Fabregas (Barcelona – Chelsea) £30mDejan Lovren (Southampton – Liverpool) £20mShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson has been valued at £50m, Everton have spent £90m and Manchester United bought Romelu Lukaku for £75m – so is Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez right to call this summer’s transfer window “a little bit crazy”?Premier League clubs’ spending has already surpassed £500m since the end of last season – and business analysts Deloitte say they are on course to set another new record by 31 August.Teams spent a record £1.165bn last summer, rising to £1.38bn after the January window.last_img read more

Kevin Love says he ‘loves’ Cavaliers teammates after on-court outburst

He finished with 12 points and three rebounds in 30 minutes Saturday as Cleveland lost at home to Oklahoma City, 121-106.If Love is intent on leaving Cleveland via trade, then he might have to wait a while, mostly because of the money he’s still owed.
