The Spurs Noticed Serge Ibaka Wasnt on the Court

In the run up to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals between the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs, the Serge Ibaka story dominated the series. Ibaka injured his calf in the final game of the Thunder’s series against the Clippers and isn’t expected to return, leaving the Thunder without their starting power forward. It was clear how that might become a problem for the Thunder; Ibaka was one of the most active and effective rim defenders this season, according to the NBA’s SportVU Player Tracking. He defended an average of 9.5 shots at the rim per game (defined as any shot attempt where he was within 5 feet of both the basket and the shooter), seventh most in the league, and held opponents to 43.9 percent shooting on those attempts, sixth lowest among players who defended at least five shots at the rim per game.Without Ibaka on the floor, the Spurs partied down low Monday night, making 67 percent of their shots in the paint, 33 of 49 overall. With Ibaka healthy, the Thunder’s playoff opponents had made only 51 percent of their inside shots.Scott Brooks, Oklahoma City’s coach, decided to go small for much of Game 1, playing Kevin Durant at power forward and entirely neglecting a big lineup that had been instrumental in helping close out the Clippers. According to SportVU, the Thunder defended 34 shots at the rim Monday night, just a touch under the 35.1 they’ve been averaging in the playoffs. But far fewer of those shots were defended by front-court players — the tall guys.Thunder Defense at the RimDurant, Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson are fantastic, but their size offers less resistance at the rim than a guy nicknamed “Iblocka.” During the regular season, those three players combined to defend 6.3 shots at the rim per game. On Monday night, they defended 16. The Spurs made 12 of them.In Game 2, there may be an opportunity to play Steven Adams more minutes, but the Thunder simply don’t have the bodies to avoid these small lineups. If they can’t figure out how to assemble a better defensive structure with the players available, this series might not last long. read more

Did OSU torpedo 2011 season

The Boys of Columbus face two key early-season tests that could derail their road back to New Orleans for next year’s BCS National Championship Game. OSU struggled in every road game except Minnesota in 2010. After two cupcake home games against Akron and Toledo, the Buckeyes play at Miami (Fla.) in week three. The Hurricanes played zombie football the last half of 2010 — anyone who watched Notre Dame dismantle them in the Sun Bowl could see that. The new eye of the Hurricanes, Al Golden, is a strict disciplinarian. He’ll have slackers running stadium stairs or shown the door. Come week five, the Spartans will visit Columbus. If the NCAA reduces the suspensions of Pryor, Herron, Posey, Adams and Thomas to four games, this could be their first game of the season. But if the NCAA upholds the suspensions, it’s likely Joe Bauserman, Jordan Hall, Corey Brown, Chris Fields, Andrew Norwell and Adam Bellamy will play major roles in beating Sparty, who loses veteran players on defense but returns with a strong offense. If OSU goes without the suspended five against Sparty, it might be a home underdog, which is rare for the Buckeyes. The last time this happened was against USC in 2009. The Sugar Bowl triumph feels good, but OSU might have mortgaged away another national title run in the process. “Through all adversity lies a blessing.” Solomon Thomas said that after Ohio State’s Sugar Bowl victory over Arkansas on Jan. 4. In a game full of turbulence, it was fitting that five of the Shameful Six played fabulous roles in the win. But now it’s time to look to next season. By letting those players work their magic in the bowl, OSU might have cursed its 2011 national title hopes. Thomas, Terrelle Pryor, Dan Herron, DeVier Posey and Mike Adams say they’ll return next season, putting OSU ahead of the Big Ten class: Michigan State will lose key players, including All-American linebacker Greg Jones; Wisconsin will lose powerhouse Scott Tolzein, winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, given to the top senior quarterback; Iowa has to start over; and Michigan is nowhere to be found. Big Ten newcomers, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, will compete for the 2011 conference crown with quarterback Taylor Martinez. However, it’s a catch-22 for OSU: The Shameful Six were allowed to play in the Sugar Bowl, but all except Jordan Whiting can’t play the first five games of next season for their part in Tattoo-gate. OSU appealed to reduce the suspensions. The Sugar Bowl win salvaged 2010 for the Buckeyes, who snapped their nine-bowl-game losing streak against the SEC, dating to 1978. By letting the suspended athletes play in the bowl, OSU might have pulled the plug on a 2011 National Championship run. read more

Ohio State womens hockey to feature veteran leadership in 201213

After finishing 16-16-4 last season, Ohio State’s women’s ice hockey team is scheduled to kick off its 2012-2013 campaign this Friday with a handful of veteran players in new leadership roles. The team nominated senior forward Hokey Langan to be the Buckeyes’ team captain. The Chatham, Ontario, product is seventh on OSU’s career scoring list with 105 points thanks to 46 goals and 59 assists. Buckeyes Coach Nate Handrahan said choosing Langan to be the team’s captain was a pretty simple choice. “Girls look to her for leadership and she is a very talented player, has a lot of experience, knows a lot from playing in the level she played at prior to being here with international competition,” Handrahan said. Handrahan commented on Langan’s individual strengths. “I think her hockey IQ and knowing the game, but I think she bleeds scarlet and grey and wants to win,” Handrahan said. “I think that has to be at the crux of your leadership and she is willing to do what it takes to win.” Langan said she is happy that her team chose her to be its captain and thinks the team has confidence in her. “It was an honor and one of the goals I had set freshman year,” Langan said. “I like to say I am a leader and that my teammates respect me and have faith in me to bring this team wins.” Langan attributed her strengths to her teammates and her knowledge of the game. “My teammates make me a lot better than I am myself, but I like to say that I can read the ice really well,” Langan said. “I am a good passer when I am given an opportunity.” Langan, though, won’t be the only member of the Buckeyes in a leadership role this season. Senior forwards Paige Semenza, Tina Hollowell and Minttu Tuominen will serve as the three assistant captains. Semenza, a two-time Ohio State Scholar-Athlete from Pittson, Pa., severed as assistant captain last season and said her new role is about having experience. “It was definitely honoring being an assistant last year and it gave me experience that I was able to build on,” Semenza said. “Coming into my senior year, I wanted to be a leader and help my teammates.” Handrahan said Semenza’s attention to detail is what makes her a qualified leader. “Paige is a quiet worker who pays attention to all the little details in her life and that helps her on the ice,” Handrahan said. Hollowell, a native of Clinton Township, Mich., was named an Academic All-Big Ten selection and Ohio State Scholar-Athlete last season. Handrahan said Hollowell is the core of the team and inspires each player. “Tina is our heartbeat, our emotional leader, our warrior that inspires us to play well,” Handrahan said. Tuominen, a native of Espoo, Finland, is a former member of the Finnish National team and Olympic bronze medalist. Handrahan said the senior forward is an excellent leader. “Minttu is someone that has international competition and she is an Olympic medalist, obviously a talented player,” Handrahan said. Handrahan has not set any goals for the team but said he thinks the team has a good work ethic that will take them far. “I think this team can work hard and compete,” Handrahan said. “The potential for good things is there but we won’t really know until we drop the puck on Friday.” The Buckeyes will host its season opener against Lindenwood at the Ohio State Ice Rink on Friday at 7:07 p.m. read more

Mens soccer looks to bounce back against Oakland

Redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov (32) takes a goal kick during a game against Northwestern Oct. 20 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The teams tied, 0-0.Credit: Eric Seger / Sports editorThe Ohio State men’s soccer team is getting a break from its Big Ten schedule Wednesday, when it welcomes the Oakland Golden Grizzlies to Columbus.Oakland (5-3-5, 3-0-1) is a member of the Horizon League, but Buckeye coach John Bluem said his team would be wrong to take the small conference school lightly.“We’ve played Oakland many times before and they are a very good attacking team,” he said. “One of the things we’ll have to make sure we do is to first, (is) bounce back after (Sunday’s game). It’s a short turnaround to play again on Wednesday night. We’ll also have to make sure we respect our opponent, we can’t look at Oakland and say, ‘This is a team from a smaller conference and we should be able to win.’ Well you know, that’s not how it’s going to happen for us, we’re going to have to fight every single game as hard as we can if we want to get a result.”Oakland enters the match against the Buckeyes (2-6-5, 0-2-2) coming off a 3-0 loss to another Big Ten team, then-No. 14 Michigan State. The Grizzlies sit in second place in the conference.Defense has been crucial to The Golden Grizzlies’ success this season, as they have only allowed an average of 1.23 goals per game this year. Oakland junior forward Joey Tinnion leads the team with 14 points (six goals and two assists) in 2013.Bluem said the Buckeyes have been “riding the coattails of an incredible goalkeeper this year,” and the defense will have to remain strong in Wednesday’s match.OSU redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov said his job is to keep the team in the game at all times and that the team needs to remain focused in its upcoming matches.“It’s very important to keep the spirits of the younger guys up and make sure that they’re still checked in and focused on the season,” he said. “(The season) is still not over — everything is up for grabs. I think because we’ve been so close, the soccer gods will come through. We’ll get something eventually.”Three of OSU’s last four opponents have been ranked in the top 20 at the time it played them. Sophomore midfielder Zach Mason said confidence from playing those teams, after tying all three of them, will help the team finish the season strong.“We’re going to do what we’ve been doing (in practice),” he said. “I think we have a lot of confidence. You know, we’ll stick to the basics, stick to what we’ve been doing, we’ve been really close and I think we are right there.”Wednesday night’s game is set for 7 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The team’s next match is scheduled against Cleveland State Oct. 27, before it resumes conference play against No. 13 Penn State in Columbus Nov. 2.An earlier edition of this story noted that OSU had lost to the last three ranked teams it had played. The Buckeyes have in fact tied all three of these opponents. read more

OSU won, 42-14.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOhio State junior quarterback Braxton Miller has made the decision to return for his senior season and not enter the 2014 NFL Draft.An OSU spokesman confirmed Thursday that Miller will return to OSU.Miller is the two-time defending Big Ten offensive player of the year and is coming off a season in which he finished in the top 10 in the conference in both rushing and passing yards per game.“I want to help this team win a Big Ten championship next year,” Miller said in a press release Thursday night. “Plus, I want to improve as a quarterback in all aspects of my game. I’m looking forward to working for another year with coach (Urban) Meyer and (offensive coordinator quarterbacks coach Tom) Herman.“And I want to graduate, so this will help get me close to my academic goal.”The quarterback is also coming off back-to-back losses, including a 40-35 defeat at the hands of Clemson in the 2014 Discover Orange Bowl Jan. 3. Despite the losses, he has compiled a 28-8 record as the starting quarterback at OSU.Meyer said he is looking forward to working with the quarterback for another season.“We look forward to having Braxton Miller return to this team for his senior season,” Meyer said in the release. “He has been an extremely valuable member of our team and he is also a fine student. His desire to lead our team to a championship, to earn his degree from The Ohio State University net spring and to continue to improve as a quarterback are his motivation.”With Miller’s decision, the Buckeye offense will return five starters from a offense that finished the year third in the country in scoring offense with an average 45.5 points per game and seventh in total offense with 511.9 average yards per game.After the Orange Bowl loss, Miller said he was going to talk to coach Urban Meyer about whether or not he should turn pro.“I’ve got to think hard about it. I will talk to coach Meyer and see what he thinks,” Miller said. “He’s been through the process many times, so that’s the guy to go to. He never steers you wrong and ever since I got here, he took me under his wing and taught me a lot of things.”The Buckeyes are set to open their 2014 season with an Aug. 30 trip to Baltimore against Navy. read more

Official Sevilla sign Marko Rog on loan from Napoli

first_imgSevilla have completed the loan signing of Napoli midfielder Marko Rog until the end of this season.The 23-year-old midfielder joined Napoli for a reported fee of €13m in 2016 from Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb on a five-year deal and has since managed 67 appearances in all competitions.Under new coach Carlo Ancelotti, however, Rog has only started four of his 11 games this season at Napoli.This had prompted talk of a move to Spain with Sevilla, despite reported interest from German side Schalke 04.Speaking in a press conference last week, Ancelotti confirmed that Rog will likely leave Napoli in this month’s transfer window with Sevilla president Jose Castro announcing on Monday that a deal was close to being completed.“We’ve made two quality signings [in Munir El Haddadi and Max Wober] and there’s another [Rog] who has just landed in Seville. We hope to close a deal for him tomorrow,” Castro told Diario de Sevilla.“It’s good proof of this club’s ambition to build a more competitive team and fight for all the objectives we have in front of us.”Now Sevilla have confirmed the news of Rog’s arrival but made no mention of an option to buy him at the end of his five-month loan deal.“Sevilla FC and SSC Napoli have reached an agreement in principle for the loan of Marko Rog until the 30th of June 2019,” read a statement on the club website.Jose Mourinho, Lionel MessiMourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.The transfer brought up quite the little scandal in Spain after Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli vowed to take Spanish news outlets to court after being falsely quoted as saying that Rog will leave them for Sevilla earlier this month.However, the Croatian has now begun training at Sevilla and will be hoping to put his troubles from Italy behind him at Andalusia.It’s uncertain yet whether Sevilla manager Pablo Machin will select him in the squad that will face Barcelona in the second leg of their Copa del Rey quarter-final clash on Wednesday night.Los Rojiblancos hold a 2-0 aggregate lead over the cup holders and will need to avoid losing the return leg by more than two goals to progress to the semi-finals of the competition.📸 Rog arrived in time to take part in his first training session with #SevillaFC. 🇭🇷⚽️Here’s how the session went ➡️ https://t.co/5zbh7L0O6w#vamosmisevilla#WeNeverSurrender 💪❤️ pic.twitter.com/6vsrBgGWnV— Sevilla FC (@SevillaFC_ENG) January 29, 2019last_img read more
