Formidable foes will test Trojans at Marks Stadium

first_imgAfter notching its first two conference wins last weekend, the USC men’s tennis team is coming home to face two top-20 conference rivals this weekend.The No. 4 Trojans (16-2, 2-0) are coming off a four-match road stretch to face No. 7 Stanford (11-4, 1-0) on Friday at 1:30 p.m.This will be the Trojans’ fifth match against a team ranked in the top 10 this season. USC holds a 3-1 record against top-10 opponents.In late February, USC traveled to Palo Alto, Calif., and narrowly defeated Stanford, 4-3, in an unusual match where singles play was decided before doubles play.In that match, No. 15 senior Robert Farah, No. 104 junior Peter Lucassen and No. 83 sophomore Daniel Nguyen won their singles matches.USC displayed toughness in the doubles play with juniors Jaak Poldma and Lucassen winning 9-7, and sophomores Steve Johnson and Nguyen winning 9-8 (3) to clinch the match victory against Stanford’s tough doubles lineup.The Trojans have won their last three matches against Stanford, but all of these recent battles were closely contested.“We know Stanford extremely well and have a ton of respect for them,” USC coach Peter Smith said. “We know how tough a match it will be and how tough the matches have been in the past, so our mindset has to be ready for a battle.”On Saturday, USC will continue to battle it out against No. 17 California (10-4, 1-0) in the first meeting between the squads this year.A previously scheduled match against the Golden Bears was cancelled because of rain.Cal has three ranked singles players — No. 16 Pedro Zerbini, No. 71 Christoffer Konigsfeldt,                                No. 116 Jonathan Dahan — and two ranked doubles teams — No. 23 Nick Andrews and Konigsfeldt and No. 26 Dahan and Zerbini.With back-to-back matches against the Bay Area schools, USC hopes to continue to build on the success they have had so far this season.“We have prepared the whole season for these matches,” Smith said. “This is all part of the process of getting us ready for NCAAs; I’m looking for our discipline and toughness to come out.”With all of the miles the Trojans have acquired traveling throughout the country, the team is glad to play in familiar surroundings.“We are happy to be coming home,” Smith said. “Looking forward to a good crowd at the Stanford and Cal matches this weekend.”last_img read more

Ryan eyeing progress in frontcourt, pleased with Jackson

first_imgWhen an entire frontcourt departs, a few aches and pains are expected to occur in the ensuing transition for any college basketball team.Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan held his weekly press conference Monday, two days after his Badgers turned out an 80-54 exhibition win over UW-Stevens Point. Ryan echoed similar sentiments from Saturday night, talking at length about the frontcourt’s need to improve its defense.“In the front line, we’re looking to replace, as I’ve said many times, the defensive read-and-reacts that the three guys that moved on this past year in the front line,” Ryan said, referring to Jon Leuer, Keaton Nankivil and Tim Jarmusz.And apparently the backcourt is a bit ahead of the curve.“That’s where we have a lot of work to do, to get our front line ready to be as advanced as maybe the guard positions defensively on how to read and react to … all the different ball screen reads,” Ryan said.Ryan placed junior Mike Bruesewitz, along with redshirt juniors Ryan Evans and Jared Berggren, in the starting lineup Saturday in the frontcourt. Together, they combined for 35 points and 11 rebounds.But on defense, however, the Pointers were able to execute. UWSP hit 17 of 24 shots inside the arc on the night, including 11 of 13 in the first half.In regard to Evans, specifically, Ryan suggested that while the 6-foot-6 forward gambled a few times on screens Saturday and was rewarded with three steals, there were times when the gamble failed and another man was left open for a layup.“If you get a lot of steals, it doesn’t mean that you’ve played great defense for a game,” Ryan said. “You don’t measure a defensive player just by steals.”Berggren, on the other hand, also needs to work on defending screens, preventing opponents from getting to the rim and forcing kick-out passes, according to Ryan.“He’s a little better this year, but we need him to get a lot better in the next month or two before we get into the Big Ten,” he said.Freshman Jackson earning timePlaying well defensively is a surefire way of earning time on the court in Ryan’s system, and one player clicking in that respect is freshman guard Traevon Jackson.Jackson’s 17 minutes on the floor against the Pointers was the seventh-highest mark on the team that night, and he was one of three underclassmen to play for 10 minutes or more. Sophomore guards Josh Gasser and Ben Brust both notched at least 25 minutes.According to Ryan, Jackson has been keen on defending screens well, and it has been his ticket onto the court.“The thing about defense is somebody might look good on the ball, but yet their help and their decision making on screens [are] not that good,” he said. “Traevon has developed very quickly and has adopted our reads a lot quicker than some of the other guys, and that’s why he’s got the potential to get more minutes.”A native of Westerville, Ohio, Jackson finished the night hitting two of four shots from the field, including one three-pointer, and grabbed two rebounds.Jackson is one of six freshmen on the Badgers’ roster, and as of Monday, Ryan said he still had not had any discussions with any players about a redshirt season. All 16 active members of the team made appearances on court Saturday.With Wisconsin’s regular season opener this Saturday against Kennesaw State at the Kohl Center, any decision to stay on the bench all season would have to come this week.“I haven’t even discussed it (with anyone),” Ryan said. “Again, it’s always on the player … It would have to be this week, a decision, if somebody wanted to.”last_img read more

12 ACC Students Successfully Complete the First Unmanned Aerial Systems Drone Pilot Course

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis12 students at Alpena Community College have successfully completed the first Unmanned Aerial Systems Drone Pilot Course. The students completed 16 hours of classroom time and 2 hours of hands on training within a four–week period.During the training the ACC students learned about UAS regulations, the national airspace system, weather, loading performance, and operations. Grant Director, Dawn Stone said she is excited to see how the students will use the technology with their future employers.“This class of utility tech students is so ground breaking…because the utility tech students will actually be able to test for the FAA exam and upon successful completion of the exam they will be able to take that technology to an industry. They will be able to go to an employer that uses drone technology, where some of the employers may not have someone who knows how to or is certified to fly a drone. So their on the cutting edge,” Stone said.The course allowed students to prepare for the Remote Pilot Exam, which will take place next week and the following week. Stone said she is positive the entire class will pass the exam.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: ACC Students, alpena community college, Drones, FAA Exam, Unmanned Aerial Systems Drone Pilot CourseContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena Auxiliary Donates to the MidMichigan Medical Center AlpenaNext Thunder Bay Arts Council and Gallery Display Alpena High School Students Artworklast_img read more

Ex-Arsenal star urges Pogba to join Chelsea

first_imgEx-Arsenal and Chelsea man Nicholas Anelka has urged Juventus’ Paul Pogba to snub Manchester United and sign for Chelsea, according to the Daily Express.Pogba, who used to play for Man United as a youth player, is reportedly available this summer as he looks to take the next step in his hugely promising career. The Frenchman would cost up to £80million, meaning only a handful of the world’s richest clubs can afford him.“My preference is for him to join Chelsea, who have very strong players and the financial power of [Roman] Abramovich,” said Anelka, who is a compatriot of Pogba’s and has experience playing at some of the world’s biggest clubs.Anelka also believes that Real Madrid would be a good option for the 21-year-old midfielder saying that “He would grow a lot under Carlo Ancelotti.”It’s likely that many players and important figures within the game will try and persuade Pogba, thus making it hard to tell what the youngster’s decision will be. However, one certainty is that if he does move this summer, it will be an almighty bidding war. More soon…………….last_img read more

Markieff Morris not with Lakers in Disney; status unclear for Marcus Morris with Clippers

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The league has avoided publicly identifying players who have tested positive since mid-March in accordance with HIPAA regulations.The NBA is scheduled to tip off again July 30, when the Lakers and Clippers are set to face each other for the fourth time this season – and the second time since the Morris brothers joined their ranks.The league plans to complete the season – an eight-game seeding schedule ahead of the playoffs – entirely on a closed campus at Disney World. Personnel in the “bubble” are tested regularly and everyone who comes onto the campus has to wait out a quarantine process and test negative for the coronavirus before they’re allowed to move about.The 30-year-old Morris twins – both 6-foot-8 forwards – have posted on Twitter in recent days, though neither has shared anything that would indicate they had arrived in Florida.The Knicks traded Marcus Morris Sr. to the Clippers on Feb. 6 as part of a three-team deal that sent Moe Harkless, a 2020 first-round pick, the right to swap 2021 first-round picks (as long as that pick isn’t in the top four), and a 2021 second-round pick to New York. The Clippers also sent Jerome Robinson to the Wizards in the transaction.In 12 games with the Clippers before the season was interrupted March 11 by the coronavirus pandemic, Marcus Morris was averaging 9.5 points and 4.0 rebounds for the Clippers.Markieff Morris signed a one-year deal with the Lakers on Feb. 23. In eight games since arriving in L.A., he was averaging 4.8 points and 3.3 rebounds. “I don’t check. To be honest, JaMychal (Green) walked in (Wednesday) and surprised the hell out of me. So, because they’re in quarantine and stuff, you don’t ever know.”When Vogel was asked how Markieff Morris looked, he said: “You know, we’re trying not to comment too much on individual players’ performances right now. We’re still waiting to manage this time where we’re respecting players’ privacies. So, I’m going to refrain from commenting on that.”In response to a follow-up question about whether Markieff Morris was in Orlando, Vogel demurred again.“I’m not going to comment on which guys are here and which guys are not here out of respect for our players’ privacy,” Vogel said.On Monday, the league announced that since July 1, 19 NBA players newly tested positive for the coronavirus during in-market testing and that two others tested positive while in quarantine in Orlando. The league reported that those two players were quarantining at home or in isolation housing, away from others.center_img Marcus and Markieff Morris, the twin brothers who joined the Clippers and Lakers, respectively, in February, have not been documented with their teams in Orlando, Florida.A person with knowledge of the situation told Southern California News Group that Markieff Morris, who signed with the Lakers in February as a free agent, had an excused absence but was expected to join the team soon. It’s unknown whether Marcus Morris, his twin brother who was acquired by the Clippers two weeks earlier, has a similar arrangement with his team.When Doc Rivers and Frank Vogel were asked about their respective players’ whereabouts before their teams practiced Wednesday afternoon, both coaches answered evasively.“Yeah, I don’t even know to be honest,” said Rivers, who was also queried about whether the Clippers’ Landry Shamet and Ivica Zubac had arrived on the NBA campus at Walt Disney World Resort, where the NBA is preparing to restart the season July 30.last_img read more

Leyton Orient manager carried off field by steward who mistook him for a fan

Powered by Firework Leyton Orient’s manager Ross Embleton has been carried off field by steward who mistook him for a fan. Leyton Orient is one of the oldest clubs in England. They are currently situated at the 9th position in the League table of League 2. On Wednesday, they won a close match against Mansfield on Wednesday with a goal in the injury time and the manager started to celebrate with the players. The steward was not able to recognize the manager and he thought the manager as a fan. So he was carried off the field.Advertisement Mansfield were awarded two penalties in the first half of the match and Rose converted both of them. The comeback of Leyton Orient from that position was looking very unlikely. However, they started to make a comeback in the match in the second half. Wilkinson pulled one goal back at the 64th minute of the match. Angol scored another goal at the 78th minute of the match. Finally Drew scored the winning goal for Leyton Orient at the 96th minute of the match.Advertisement The manager was certainly excited with the Goal and that’s why he started celebrating with his own players.

Both pitchers combined to give up four hits, strike out 2 and walk four.The Bombers collected four hits, Lincoln picked up 2, Breaden Zarikoff, Brandon Huffty and Ben LeMarquand had one each. The L.V.
