Men’s hockey: Badgers seek to prolong season at Big Ten tournament

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s hockey team will get a chance to salvage the worst regular season in program history this weekend, but it’s going to have to nearly double its total wins.After victories in just four of their first 34 games, the Badgers (4-25-5, 2-15-3 Big Ten) head to the Big Ten tournament this weekend in Detroit, where their season will likely come to an end. UW would have to win three straight games and the Big Ten tournament title to secure an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.But despite the tall task of winning out, head coach Mike Eaves is optimistic about his team’s improvement in the second half of the season heading into the conference tournament.“It’s a brand new start. It’s a beginning, and I think it raises that thought of hope for us,” Eaves said. “We have, in the second half, talked about playing our best hockey coming into March, and we have done that.”However, Wisconsin opens with Michigan Thursday night, a team it has yet to beat this season in four games. In the first series with the Wolverines, UW jumped out to a 4-1 lead early on in the second period, but ended up allowing six straight goals in a 7-4 loss. After those first four goals in the first game, the Wolverines ended up outscoring the Badgers 20-2 in the final three and a half games.The road trip to Michigan featured slightly closer games, but still resulted in 3-0 and 5-2 Michigan wins.“They lead the country in offense, and we saw that firsthand here,” Eaves said. “We played them much tighter in their building. Even Red complimented our team [on] how the second series was closer.”Going up against a team in Michigan that averages 3.88 goals per game, Wisconsin will have a tall task on its hands. Wisconsin hasn’t scored more than two goals in a game in more than a month, which coincidentally was its last win, a 3-2 victory over Ohio State Feb. 14, and has scored more than two goals in a game only seven times. The Badgers have also been shut out in five of their last seven games.After two conference tournament championships the last two seasons for Wisconsin, the Badgers will have to start fast if they hope to reclaim a tournament crown for the third straight year.Wisconsin will also have to do it in a different venue, as this year’s Big Ten tournament will take place at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, following 14 straight years for the Badgers at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.“The next time the tournament comes up to go to Detroit, that arena won’t be there,” Eaves said of the only opportunity to play in the historic NHL barn. “They are building a new arena for the Detroit Red Wings, and this arena, excuse the pun, but it reeks of history, like spilled beer and cigarettes and championships gone by.”Should Wisconsin win in the first game against Michigan, it would take on Michigan State in the semifinals. The Badgers did manage one win against the Spartans this season, but then got swept in the final three games against MSU, all by a score of 3-0.  Spartans’ goaltender Jake Hildebrand has keyed the Spartans’ success this season, with the second-most shutouts in the country (6) and the ninth-best save percentage (93.0).Goaltending could also be a key to Wisconsin’s success in the tournament. UW has relied heavily on Joel Rumpel throughout the season, and despite less than average numbers compared to the rest of his career, Rumpel has kept Wisconsin in most games. Despite allowing the fifth most goals per game in the country as a team, Rumpel still has managed a .904 save percentage.But considering Wisconsin is the fourth-worst offense in the country, the Badgers’ attack will have to support Rumpel to keep the season on life support.“Hope is a great thing,” Eaves said. “This time of year, how many Cinderella stories have been written in March through basketball or hockey? We will find out together if we can write one of those stories again.”Game VitalsWhat: Big Ten men’s hockey tournamentWho: Wisconsin vs. Michigan StateWhere: Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, MichiganWhen: Thursday, 7 p.m. Televised on the Big Ten Network.WisconsinLeading scorers: Grant Besse (11 G, 11 A), Joseph LaBate (6 G, 12 A), Morgan Zulinick (5 G, 10 A)Probable goaltender: Joel Rumpel (4-22-4, 3.43 goals-against-average, 90.4 save percentage)Michigan StateLeading scorers: Matt Berry (11 G, 17 A), Mackenzie MacEachern (11 G, 14 A), Michael Ferrantino (12 G, 11 A)Probable goaltender: Jake Hildebrand (17-15-2, 2.12 GAA, 93.0 save percentage)last_img read more

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly to return in 2014, sources say

first_imgEven before a Source With Knowledge of Don Mattingly’s Situation anonymously confirmed that Don Mattingly’s situation looked good for 2014, it had come to this: The Dodgers doing anything less than picking up the team option on his contract would be a surprise.Whether it was Ned Colletti or Stan Kasten or Mark Walter or Magic Johnson, anybody I spoke to recently about Mattingly’s performance was upbeat. Not tepid. Not cautious. Always positive, though always unwilling to go on the record about 2014 — anonymously or otherwise. (In fact, Kasten gave the Daily News a very cold shoulder — the New York Daily News — in a typical exchange about the subject Tuesday.)Read more at the Inside the Dodgers blog.

Kobe Bryant autopsy results: Blunt force trauma for all crash victims

first_imgMORE: Sheriff acknowledges deputies took unauthorized photos of sceneThe coroner’s office listed accident as the manner of death as it closed its part of the investigation, the Times reported. Federal investigators are still looking into what happened.  Toxicology tests found no illegal substances or alcohol in Zobayan’s system, the Times also reported. Bryant had Ritalin, a drug to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, in his system.Bryant’s widow, Vanessa, filed lawsuits in February against Island Express Helicopters, Island Express Holding Corp. and Zobayan’s estate, for the wrongful deaths of her husband and daughter. She has also taken preliminary legal steps to sue the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, claiming deputies took unauthorized photos of the crash scene.Dan Bernstein contributed to this report. Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven other people were likely killed instantly when a helicopter carrying them to an AAU basketball game on Jan. 26 crashed into a hillside in Southern California, according to autopsy results released Friday by Los Angeles County officials.The county medical examiner-coroner’s office ruled that all nine people on board suffered blunt force trauma and almost certainly died on impact (per the Los Angeles Times, subscription required, and The Associated Press). The pilot, Ara Zobayan, was attempting to maneuver the Sikorsky S-76 through low clouds at the time of the crash in Calabasas, Calif.last_img read more

Qualifiers claim their Brabazon places

first_img Tags: Brabazon Trophy qualifers, Hindhead, Lindrick Over 60 players came through regional qualifiers today to clinch their places in the field for the prestigious Brabazon Trophy.Warwickshire’s Liam Phipps (pictured) and George Leversuch of Essex led the way at the southern event, both scoring four-under 66 at Hindhead Golf Club in Surrey.At the northern event at Lindrick in Yorkshire, Charlie Daughtrey – from the host county – and Scotland’s Blair Morton shared the honours on two-under 68.They lead the 33 qualifiers from each course who will join the exempt players for the championship at Alwoodley Golf Club, Yorkshire, from 30 May to 2 June.It’s England Golf’s flagship tournament for men, attracting an international amateur field and two past winners have gone on to win Majors.Phipps, who works at The Belfry, also qualified for last year’s Brabazon and had the top individual score at the 2018 English Champion Club tournament. The 23-year-old from Olton commented: “It’s a goal to try to get a little bit better every year. I’ve played the county stuff and done well in that and now the plan is to try to play well in national events this year.”Leversuch, from Wanstead, matched his score with a round which started with four birdies in the first six holes. He had three more on the back nine, including one on the last.In the north, Daughtrey (Rotherham) came in late in the day with a very tidy card of three birdies and a bogey. “I’ve had a tough couple of years swing-wise, but I’ve worked really hard over the winter and it all seems to be coming together,” said the 18-year-old.“I played really solid today round a tough course. It was stress free, which is nice, fairways and greens.”Daughtrey, who has twice helped Yorkshire win the English Boys’ County Finals, will be playing in the Brabazon for the first time.So, too, will Blair Morton, from Royal Troon. He reaped the benefit today of great preparation, having arrived on Friday, in time to play the Lindrick Open over the weekend. His scores then included a 67 and he came second. “Today is probably the fifth or sixth time I have played the course and it definitely helped,” said the 22-year-old.Behind them were three players on 69: Ben Goodison (Coventry), James Cass (Fulford) and Sam Turner (Royal Lytham & St Annes).Click here for the northern scores from LindrickClick here for the southern scores from HindheadImage copyright Leaderboard Photography 14 May 2019 Qualifiers claim their Brabazon places last_img read more

Freeholders Call On Towns To Restrict Sales of Cats and Dogs…

first_imgBy Joseph SapiaFREEHOLD – The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders has passed a resolution calling on county municipalities to adopt ordinances putting severe restrictions on the sale of dogs and cats.The resolution, passed 5-to-0 on Jan. 21, asks towns to require pet shops to sell dogs and cats only obtained from or displayed in cooperation with animal-care facilities or rescue organizations. Also, it asks towns to disallow pet shops from selling dogs or cats younger than eight weeks.“I think it’s phenomenal,” said Janice Fisher, who coordinates the Puppy Mill Awareness Campaign in New Jersey for the 1,200-member Friends of Animals United (FAUN) New Jersey.Fisher, a Manasquan resident, worked with Freeholder John P. Curley to get the resolution passed.“We need to take care and not abuse pets and animals,” Curley said.Curley said he motioned for the resolution to be passed at the Jan. 21 meeting and other freeholders came aboard.“We’re thrilled,” said Fisher, a former paralegal who lives in Manasquan. “I think our freeholders are wonderful and, in particular, Freeholder Curley. He took the time to listen, research the matter, (and) talked to his colleagues.”“We’re so grateful,” said Danielle Mania, development manager for the Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. “We’re trying to stop overbreeding, puppy mills, the abuse that goes on in puppy mills.”Monmouth County SPCA said puppy mills, or large-scale breeders, emphasize profit over animal welfare and breed pets with health or behavioral issues. Instead, pets should be bought from reputable hobby breeders, shelters or rescues, according to Monmouth County SPCA.Calpurrnia, an approximately 3-year-old female awaiting adoption at the Monmouth County SPCA.“Monmouth County took a strong stand against the cruel puppy mill industry, while promoting responsible breeders and pet adoption,” said Kathleen Schatzmann, state director for the Humane Society of the United States.Gary Hager, who sells dogs at his Bark Avenue Puppies store in Red Bank, believes this type of legislation is flawed in various ways – such as painting with a broad brush and taking in well-operated pet stores, along with going at animal abuse the wrong way.“They’re looking down the wrong end of the telescope,” Hager said. “They’re kind of pointing the gun in the wrong direction. You’re not going to stop a puppy mill by stopping a pet store.”Bark Avenue deals with only about 10 to 15 “five-star breeders” who are “all vetted,” Hager said, adding that he keeps only 12 to 15 puppies at a time at his store. Certain dogs that consumers want are not available at shelters and it is unrealistic for people to deal directly with quality breeders who may be more than 1,000 miles away, he said.Hager compared the puppy mill issue to chicken farm operations, both of which have come under fire for abusive ways. All egg farmers have not been shut down, so why shut down all puppy sellers?Rather, Hager said, go after the bad players – puppy mills with abusive methods or pet stores with bad records.“Go after the puppy mill-breeder operations where they are,” he said. “Why throw all (pet stores) under the bus?”Of the county’s 53 municipalities, only Fisher’s hometown of Manasquan has such an ordinance, she said. Of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities, an estimated 25 have this type of ordinance, Fisher said.“This resolution will encourage towns,” Fisher said. “It will embolden.”The county resolution includes a sample ordinance.County Counsel Andrea I. Bazer said Monmouth County followed Camden County’s lead on the resolution.“The county doesn’t have the ability to enforce, but the municipalities do,” Bazer said.Camden, Monmouth, Ocean and Mercer counties have passed resolutions, Fisher said.“I had received a great deal of background from Janice and her group,” Curley said. “I was very pleased to bring that to the freeholders and the educational process to the municipalities. It was a pleasure working with that group and I thank the SPCA.”last_img read more

“I already saw that the Board was divided, so I left it”

first_imgThe former sports vice president of Barcelona Jordi Mestre assured that internal problems and the division between members of the board of directors are not things of today and that they come from far behind, when he was at the club. “Board divided? I already saw it from the inside, that’s why I left it. I don’t know if things have changed, but when I was inside, we didn’t all eat from the same plate. That was clear”, Mestre explained in an interview on the ‘Tu Diràs’ program on the Catalan radio station RAC1.The former Barca leader, who He was in the club from 2014 until last summer, he knows first-hand the tensions of the board, since he himself left his positionor with a full transfer window open due to discrepancies in the sports area.Along these same lines, Mestre commented that “something” had to happen between the president and vice president Emili Rousaud, who yesterday Wednesday criticized the “presidential model” of Josep Maria Bartomeu and confirmed that he was not going to resign from his position. “If the president, who is the one who appointed me, tells me that he doesn’t trust me, I take things and leave. Each one is different, but I think that if he put you there, he also has the right to take you away, “he said. Rousaud, who had been considered the continuation candidate for the elections of the summer of 2021, acknowledged in statements to the SER network and TV3, that Bartomeu made a series of calls this Tuesday to four managers, including him, to express his intention to degrade them in case they did not want to resign, since it has no power to dismiss them due to a statutory matter.Mestre was surprised by Rousaud’s statements, since it considers that, if there were discrepancies between the president and him, the possibility of being president or candidate would never have been considered. “I saw that there were different sectors within the board. From what I read, it is irreconcilable. If President Bartomeu has made vice presidents resign, and I do not know if anyone else, it is because it is a really serious thing”, sentenced the former Barca manager.Since coming to office in 2015, changes have been constant in Bartomeu’s board, which has suffered a total of nine dismissals, if you include the last four managers questioned.The points of maximum tension were reached with the management of 1-O, which claimed the resignations of the vice president of the social area, Carles Vilarrubí, and the member and commissioner of the Barça Innovation Hub, Jordi Monés, and the recent case of “Barçagate” , when the company I3Ventures was commissioned to carry out work on social networks against players, former players and members of the Barcelona environment, the consequences of which continue to this day.last_img read more

Lindener slapped with attempted murder charge

first_imgTwenty-two-year-old Preston Skeete of South Amelia’s Ward, Mackenzie, Linden, Region 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) was last week slapped with an attempted murder charge when he appeared before Magistrate Clive Nurse at the Linden Magistrate’s Court.He was remanded to prison for the charge which alleges that he wounded 25-year-old Kevin Valladores, a labourer of Central Amelia’s Ward on September 6, 2018, with intent to murder him. The incident occurred at about 19:00h at Victory Valley, Wismar, Linden. According to the prosecutor’s case, Valladores was at a shop in Victory Valley imbibing along with Skeete and others when an argument ensued between the two. Skeete is alleged to have choked the victim, before pulling out a knife and slitting his throat. He then made good his escape.Following the alleged incident, Valladores placed a rag to his throat and ran East along Sunflower Street, Wismar. He was picked up by a driver but subsequently exited the vehicle while at Mackenzie/Wismar Bridge waiting for the traffic light. Valladores then ran in the direction of the Linden Hospital Complex (LHC) holding onto his throat. Another public-spirited person saw him, picked him up and rushed him to the LHC where he was treated for an eight-inch laceration to his neck.The injury resulted in him having to receive several stitches. He was then admitted a patient in a stable condition for observation. Skeete, who later went into hiding, was days later caught by Police and charged with the crime. He will make his next court appearance on October 16.last_img read more

MORE THAN 7,000 DONEGAL SCHOOLCHILDREN TAKE PART IN MATHS WEEK

More than 7,500 schoolchildren from across Donegal took part in the tenth annual Maths Week.The children from across 66 schools participated in the all-island event which has grown to become the largest of its kind in the world.Throughout the week, world renowned and locally acclaimed mathematicians enlightened and entertained people of all ages in the joys of maths through maths talks, workshops, games, teasers, challenges and magic maths shows. For example, Scoil Bhríde in Lifford designed maths trails around the school and Scoil Mhuire Gan Smál in Letterkenny held a fun maths workshop. Scoil Mhuire in Buncrana held a photography competition to find geometry in the real world.Tens of thousands of people across the country participated online, through games and competitions through www.mathsweek.ie, and puzzles on websites including irishtimes.com, thejournal.ie and siliconrepublic.com. Teachers participated in a Twitter discussion about the teaching of maths and thousands took part in two Twiznight quizzes on Twitter.Eoin Gill, Maths Week co-ordinator said: “Well over one million people have engaged with Maths Week over the past ten years, helping them to have a more positive attitude towards maths. Not only is maths important for a variety of careers, it is also a fundamentally important life skill. From budgeting to baking, some degree of mathematical ability is important for us all.”Speaking about the role of schools during Maths Week, Mr Gill said: “Every year we are impressed with the creativity shown by primary and post-primary teachers around the island in their efforts to engage and entertain their pupils during Maths Week. That effort will have an enormous impact in encouraging young people to have greater confidence in their ability to do well at maths”.
