Women’s soccer: Badgers look to get back on track after disappointing road trip

first_imgAn interesting match up is ahead as both the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (8-3-1, 2-2-1 Big Ten) and Indiana Hoosiers (5-6-2, 1-3-1 Big Ten) have faced difficulties in their respective seasons as of late.Both Wisconsin and Indiana have struggled, each dropping two of their last three.  For the Badgers, a statement win could be monumental in turning around the spirits of a team that’s been on the losing end of some close games recently.Women’s soccer: Wisconsin falls to Rutgers in tight road contestThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (8-3-1, 2-2-1 Big Ten) lost the final game of their East Coast trip Read…Each of Wisconsin’s five Big Ten matchups thus far in the season have gone to overtime.  While the team’s defense has kept scores low, they need more offensive production if they want to start winning consistently again.Against their last opponent, Rutgers, Wisconsin only totaled two shots on goal.  Head coach Paula Wilkins may want to reevaluate some of her lineups as to create more opportunities for the offense to score.While strikers Dani Rhodes and Lauren Rice have played excellent, more players need to be involved in the offensive attack if the team wants to put up a high number of points. At the moment, 11 of the eighteen goals scored by the Badgers have come off of this duo.While these two players have a higher shot percentage than the rest of the team, if you can get some of the mid fielders in better opportunities, their percentages could raise considerably. Involving these midfielders or even running more three forward formations could significantly improve offensive production. Emily Borgmann may be someone to look to in these lineups as the freshman has already scored two goals on just eleven shots.Women’s soccer: Wisconsin, Maryland end game in tieOn Friday afternoon, the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team left College Park, Maryland on a rather neutral note as Read…Indiana will counter Wisconsin’s offensive efforts with standout goalkeeper Bethany Kopel. Kopel has maintained a solid .761 save percentage this season and looks to be a defensive obstacle for the Badgers.On the other side of the ball, the Hoosiers top two scorers are Maya Piper and Chandra Davidson. These strikers have combined for 11 goals thus far in the season and should be a challenge, even for Wisconsin’s star goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem.This game is Wisconsin’s final contest at home for three weeks and could be an emotional turning point as the team heads out on a long stretch of road games.Kickoff will be 1 p.m. Sunday at the McClimon complex and will also be available to stream on BTN Plus.last_img read more

Lakers’ Russell, Bass, Huertas considered doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. Maccabi Haifa

first_imgEnergizer bunnyDespite the Lakers overseeing a surplus of power forwards, Lakers rookie Larry Nance Jr. has impressed observers in training camp with his endless hustle. “I’m just trying to be a guy you can put on the floor and you don’t have to worry about me. You don’t have to worry about me playing hard,” said Nance Jr. who has averaged four rebounds in 11 minutes through two exhibitions. “As long as I’m doing that, I’m happy and I’m pretty sure Coach Scott is happy.” Nance Jr. is right.“I love his energy,” Scott said. “He’s been very patient. He doesn’t rush or force anything.”Light workKobe Bryant participated in the Lakers’ light practice on Saturday that lasted only about an hour. But Bryant skipped out on the team’s shooting drills since he completed his own shooting workout beforehand. Scott reported that Bryant made “700 shots in a full-out sweat.” All three players completed practice on Saturday without any noticeable limitations. But the Lakers have listed rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell, veteran point guard Marcelo Huertas and power forward Brandon Bass as doubtful to play in Sunday’s game against Maccabi Haifa at Staples Center. Russell has nursed a bruised glute since taking a hard fall in Tuesday’s game against Utah, while Bass bruised his left knee after taking another fall in the same game. Huertas strained his right hamstring since practice last Saturday, forcing him to miss all three of the Lakers’ first three exhibition games. The 32-year-old Brazilian native spent part of his absence traveling to Vancouver to retrieve a work visa.“With D’Angelo, most of his pain is when he’s moving to his right,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “With Brandon, it’s just soreness in his knee right now. He says it feels pretty good. But once we get up and down the floor tomorrow, we’ll see how they feel.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Huertas said he feels “better” and that his hamstring “doesn’t hurt at all.” Yet, Huertas added the hamstring is “not 100 percent,” and that he will not play if it is not fully healed. Scott remains “very curious” to see Huertas after the Lakers signed him to a non-guaranteed contract. He played for FC Barcelona in Spain for the past four years. “He’s a very good floor leader,” Scott said of Huertas. “He’s going to try to guard you. He’s a guy that will make plays.”Still, Scott downplayed how much Huertas could mentor Russell, given Huertas’ lack of NBA experience. “Here, it’s much more physical, aggressive and explosive,” Huertas said. “In Europe, everyone is settled down and organized. Teams have good structure and people don’t take fast shots. You usually take care of the ball really well and try to play inside of a system longer.”last_img read more

Pochettino accepts blame for ‘sloppy’ Spurs

first_img0Shares0000Ajax in wonderland: Donny van de Beek scored the winner as Ajax beat Tottenham 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final © AFP / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, May 1 – Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted he was at fault as Ajax closed in on a first Champions League final for 23 years thanks to Donny van de Beek’s early goal to win the first leg of their semi-final 1-0 on Tuesday.Van de Beek’s opener on 15 minutes was just reward for the Dutch side’s first-half dominance as Tottenham badly missed the presence of the injured Harry Kane and suspended Son Heung-min. Tottenham improved after the break despite another injury blow as Jan Vertonghen had to be helped down the tunnel after a sickening head knock, but lacked the inspiration needed to get back on level terms without their two top scorers.“Watching now of course I can accept it was a mistake the shape we used. But there were not too many options,” said Pochettino.“I am not happy, but our lack of energy from the beginning made our game difficult. We were a little sloppy.”Ajax had shown they are not fazed on the road despite the tender age of many of their squad by shocking Real Madrid and Juventus away to reach the last four and started confidently.Hakim Ziyech’s through ball picked out midfielder Van de Beek who took his time to leave Hugo Lloris prone before slotting into the bottom corner.“I think it was an amazing evening, an amazing result,” said Ajax coach Erik ten Hag.“In the beginning we very strong, we were completely dominating the game and we made a fantastic goal.”Lloris kept his side in the game 10 minutes later from another Van de Beek effort as Ajax threatened to run riot.“The way we conceded the goal was so painful, I think we were so poor in this action,” added Pochettino.“They showed more energy than us, but I think after 30 minutes we started to equalise the game.”– Spurs miss Kane and Son –On top of Kane and Son, Spurs were shorn of the injured Erik Lamela and Harry Winks and lost another key player when Vertonghen came off worst as he contested a high ball with Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana and teammate Toby Alderweireld.Tottenham’s injury woes continued as Jan Vertonghen (left) was forced off with a head knock © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONThe Belgian was patched up and briefly returned to the field before having to be helped down the tunnel leading to questions over why the Spurs medical staff allowed him to continue.“I wasn’t involved,” insisted Pochettino. “It is the doctors’ decision.“I think (the health of the player) is so important, the protocol is there and our medical staff follow the protocol.”Despite that latest blow, the hosts reacted well to end the half on top with Vertonghen’s replacement Moussa Sissoko driving a long-range effort wide.Pochettino’s half-time pep talk had the desired effect as Spurs dug deep into their energy reserves to raise the tempo and intensity of their display after the break.Yet, the quality needed in the final third to get back on level terms was missing without Kane and Son.“We arrived in the last third but we didn’t find a way to create clear chances,” continued Pochettino. “Always we missed the last pass or shot.”Ajax did not make the most of their chances on the break to kill the tie off, but were unfortunate when David Neres’s effort back across Lloris left the French captain helpless only for the ball to rebound back off the post.“We could have kept the ball more and played calmer and that creates opportunities,” said Ten Hag.“With for instance Neres that he didn’t score that was such a pity. Nevertheless winning 1-0 in Tottenham is an amazing result.“We know we can do a lot better next week to finish it off.”Son will be back for the trip to Amsterdam next Wednesday and Spurs will hope the South Korean can repeat his double away to Manchester City in the last eight, but Ajax are in pole position for a final against Barcelona or Liverpool come June 1 in Madrid.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
