Wisconsin men’s golf finishes 10th in Big Ten Championships

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s golf team’s 2013-2014 season came to a close over the weekend with a 10th-place finish in the Big Ten Championships in French Lick, Ind.The tournament began Friday with two rounds where Wisconsin got off to a slow start 23-over par 311 through the first 18 holes, but the Badgers rebounded, improving its second-round score by nine strokes with a 14-over par 302 to put UW firmly in 10th place.The third round of the tournament proved to be the low point for Wisconsin as the Badgers posted a 24-over par 312 — its worst score of the tournament — but low scores by every team Saturday kept UW in the 10th spot.With the motivation of grabbing its best finish in the Big Ten Championships for several years, Wisconsin posted its best score of the tournament with a nine-over 297 to give the Badgers a final score of 1222, good for a 10th-place finish and just one stroke behind Penn State.After finishing in 12th place in last year’s Big Ten Championships, this seasons outcome was a marked improvement for the Badgers. The 10th-place finish marks the best finish for Wisconsin since it finished 10th in the 2009 Big Ten Championships.Junior Thomas O’Bryan was a big reason for the Badgers success in the tournament as the Illinois native finished tied for 12th at the end of the weekend.After posting two 76s Friday, O’Bryan improved his score by two strokes for the home stretch with a pair of two-over 74s Saturday and Sunday. The junior finished with a score of 300 or 12-over.O’Bryan finished last year’s Big Ten Championships in a tie for 49th overall. His 12th-place finish ties a career best that he posted in 2012.Fifth-year senior Jack Watson wasn’t too far off O’Bryan’s pace as the Illinois native finished with a 16-over 304 on the weekend, good for 24th overall.Fellow fifth-year senior Zach Balit matched Watson’s score with a 304.Fifth-year senior Robert Jacobsen and freshman Ben Skogen rounded out Wisconsin’s score with a pair of 33-over 321 scores.last_img read more

Dino Babers compares Syracuse’s recent run to catching a wave

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Sitting at 7-2, Dino Babers compared his team’s recent run to a wave. “I wouldn’t say we’re on the top of that wave,” Babers said, “But we’re definitely catching it.” The No. 19 Orange defeated Wake Forest 41-24 last Saturday for their first November victory under Babers. The Orange moved up to No. 13 in the AP Poll on Sunday and await an anticipated jump in Tuesday’s release of the CFP rankings. Throughout the season, Babers has alluded to a healthier roster and how that’s played a role in this year’s success. On Monday, he noted the team’s emphasis on rotations this year. In games, the defensive line shifts regularly with each member of the two-deep tallying a tackle for loss this season. The offensive line has rotated six players, often subbing in redshirt sophomore Sam Heckel. And at the skill positions on offense, both running back and wide receiver, the team has shifted around several players based on that day’s production. “We’re trying desperately to try to rotate and do things from a physical and a game standpoint to give different units an opportunity to rest their bodies,” Babers said, “so we have an opportunity for everybody to come through this thing clean and not overuse one specific unit two or three games in a row where we may not be able to recover that use.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen asked about how this year’s team has stayed focused through the success — something Syracuse hasn’t done in the past— Babers said his team learned from post-Virginia Tech and -Clemson fall offs in 2016 and 2017, respectively. “They’re not letting their nightlife affect their day life,” Babers said.After the Wake Forest win, Babers refused to look past 2-7 Louisville and evaluate the looming matchup with a currently undefeated Notre Dame team. Again on Monday, Babers refused to look ahead.On Sunday when the team met, Babers presented them with the stats from Syracuse’s last two games against Louisville. Syracuse lost those two games by a combined score of 118-38, allowing 1,572 yards in the two losses. “I told them that we play games one game at a time, and that we’re in third game of the second half of our season,” Babers said. “And they said OK.”Injury notesBabers said senior Tyrone Perkins, who left Saturday’s game on a medical cart with an apparent leg injury, is still in North Carolina. He said Perkins is “in good shape and he’s going to get better.” Babers said he didn’t have an update on junior running back Moe Neal, who left late in the fourth quarter. center_img Published on November 5, 2018 at 2:00 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44last_img read more
