Syracuse heads into final two weeks of season hoping to end on positive note

No Comments

first_img Published on November 21, 2013 at 1:07 am Contact Eric: [email protected] Following Friday’s loss against Pittsburgh, the slim chances that Syracuse had at making it to the NCAA tournament vanished.The Orange wants to win, but with nothing to play for, it is hard to keep going. Instead, SU sets goals for the final two weeks of the season.“To get better,” head coach Leonid Yelin said. “With everyone coming back next year, we just want to build something for next year.”The Orange (14-14, 9-7 Atlantic Coast) will hit the road this weekend to face Clemson (13-14, 7-9) on Friday at 7 p.m. and Georgia Tech (10-18, 4-12) on Sunday at 1 p.m. SU played these two teams at home earlier in the season, beating both in convincing fashion, but when it faces them this weekend it will try to work on the little things, including getting blockers involved and serving.Syracuse will finish its season with a home game against Boston College on Wednesday at 7 p.m. and then a trip to South Bend, Ind., next Saturday against Notre Dame at 2 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textComing into the season, the Orange wasn’t expected to contend in its first ACC season. SU was only ranked at No. 12 in the ACC’s preseason rankings. Winning 8-of-10 propelled Syracuse up to seventh going into the weekend. The Orange felt underestimated even during its recent run of success.“At the beginning of the year many people underestimated us,” outside hitter Nicolette Serratore said. “We have started to prove ourselves though. People think it is a fluke that we have won these games. So we just want to prove that we are a stable team and bigger threat next year.” Although the tournament chances have slipped away, Yelin and the players say there are still things they can work on. One of these issues is getting the middle blockers more involved in the game. Having the middle blockers more involved with the game makes a team’s game more unpredictable. They are the first ones able to touch the ball from the setters’ hands.“You have to play to them since they are the first step to hit the ball,” Yelin said. “If you are not going to use them, nobody is going to pay attention to then and everybody else is going to face the double block. So it is a balance to find out when to use them and how often to use them.”This burden falls on the hands of freshman setter Erica Handley. Just three weeks removed from winning her first-ever ACC Freshman of the Week Honors, Handley now has another. After her strong performance this weekend, she garnered attention for the award.One thing that she struggled with this weekend was serving. Handley had three aces, but she still feels like she missed too many serves.“Missing serves comes with aggressiveness,” Handley said “We do not just want to lollipop it over the net and give them an easy serve receive. So I just have to try and minimize that.”Yelin says it is not just one player, but also a collective issue. He also acknowledges the balance that must exist between serving it harder or softer over the net.“Without going with an aggressive serve, you put yourself defensively in a really tough situation,” Yelin said. “These are two things, with the serve and serve receive, that if you are doing these two things better you start winning.”He went on to explain that it is sort of a give-and-take system. Getting an ace is not the only effective way of serving. Making the ball difficult to play is something that can upset the opposing team’s setter.Syracuse looks to improve on these two things in its final four games of the season, showing that the winning is not a fluke and that it is here to stay.“We just want to win it out.” Handley said, “We want to prove that we can be a winning team. Pitt didn’t expect us to beat them the first time and I feel like that is how a lot of the conference feels about us. We just have to keep proving them wrong.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Despite the lack of abundance of recognizable names, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth both plan to play.Typically held in May, the tour changed up its schedule this season to make this the final pre-Masters tournament rather than the Houston Open.

Just 17 of the tournament’s 144 golfers are playing in Augusta next week, led by world No. 8 Rickie Fowler. Last year’s third-place finisher at the Masters, Jordan Spieth, is looking for one final tuneup as well. What could be better than one final shot for an up-and-coming golfer to punch his ticket to golf’s most legendary event?For what the Valero Texas Open lacks in big-name firepower, it compensates as the PGA Tour’s version of a Willy Wonka golden ticket. The tournament serves as the last opportunity for a golfer to earn an exception for the Masters, which starts April 11.

Dallas Stars’ Corey Perry did the ‘walk of shame’ — and Twitter had a field day with it

No Comments

first_imgThe Winter Classic is a premier event on the NHL’s calendar and this year’s version was no different. But for Dallas Stars forward Corey Perry, it was over in a mere two minutes and 44 seconds when he was ejected for elbowing the Nashville Predators’ Ryan Ellis in the head. Ellis (concussion) did not return to the game. Normally, when a player is ejected they go right to the tunnel and to their dressing room. Well, with the rink situated in the middle of the Cotton Bowl — the walk to the Stars’ locker room on Wednesday was a little longer than usual. So, of course, Twitter did what Twitter does and had some fun with Perry’s walk of shame.The Corey Perry walk of shame, paired with “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day just hits different. pic.twitter.com/o5dn10LmXY— Hockey Daily 365 (@HockeyDaily365) January 1, 2020Corey Perry’s walk of shame, but I added the penalty song from The World Juniors pic.twitter.com/NwRj0QPEFM— Gongshow Gary 🇨🇦 (@SuckMyDeke) January 1, 2020I love the walk of shame for Corey Perry.

There is no certainty that it will be concluded.“President [Antonio] Percassi and I were able to speak with [Milan Vice-President] Adriano Galliani, who showed great interest in the lad.“Milan have a moral first option on our player, yes, but I absolutely would not say that the deal is already done.”last_img read more
