No. 13 seed Wake Forest upsets 5th-seeded Syracuse in 2nd round of ACC tournament

first_imgGREENSBORO, N.C. — Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman stood still on the court. Wake Forest head coach Jen Hoover trotted onto it grinning ear to ear. Hillsman’s players walked toward him as he waited for a team manager to hand him a whiteboard. The Demon Deacons leapt off the bench, running to greet their teammates.Six minutes earlier, the game was tied at 46. But with eight minutes left, WFU held a 13-point lead. The Orange had missed six of its last nine shots, prompting Hillsman to call a timeout.“We weren’t scoring,” Hillsman said. “That was the biggest thing. We didn’t score the basketball for a large chunk of the game and when we get into those droughts where we don’t score, that means we can’t press. That’s our game.”And since fifth-seeded SU (21-9, 11-5 Atlantic Coast) wasn’t able to play its game, it fell to 13th-seeded Wake Forest (12-20, 2-14) 85-79 in the second round of the ACC tournament at the Greensboro Coliseum. No. 22 Syracuse’s next game won’t come until the NCAA tournament, which doesn’t start until March 20.The Demon Deacons – who outrebounded the Orange by 10 – relied on a 22-5 second-half run to propel them to the upset win while two of Syracuse’s best three rebounders, Briana Day and Taylor Ford, sat on the bench for large portions of that run before each fouled out.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe run began when Amber Campbell hit a jumper to tie the game at 48 and then Wake Forest scored the next nine points. The crowd of 9,386 grew louder with each basket as the lead grew at the same time.“Our emphasis was to get stops,” Demon Deacons head coach Jen Hoover said. “… We really felt that in the half court, we could force them to one shot and if we would get stops, we would run out and we knew we wouldn’t have to face the press.”WFU beat Syracuse at its strong suit with easy layups in transition with 36 points in the paint and 15 on fast breaks. The Orange prides itself on forcing turnovers, pushing the tempo and pressing after made basket. But since SU’s shots weren’t falling, Wake Forest took advantage.Day grabbed just one rebound in 13 minutes against Dearica Hamby, the ACC’s third-best rebounder and scorer. Ford was Syracuse’s leading rebounder but only played 20 minutes. Each of them had three fouls by halftime, forcing Syracuse to go to its backup centers Bria Day and Amber Witherspoon.“The key to this game was we didn’t have our best players on the floor,” Hillsman said.When either Bria Day or Witherspoon made a productive play, Briana Day and assistant coach Sasha Palmer would stand up and cheer them on from the bench. But those moments were rare, as Hamby and forward Kandice Ball combined for 37 points.When Day committed her fifth and final foul, her jaw dropped in disbelief.On WFU’s next possession, Millesa Calicott nailed a 3 to put the Demon Deacons up by 15, its largest lead of the game. She celebrated by lifting three fingers in the air and jamming them into the side of her head as she spun around and jogged back on defense after yelling with excitement.“They just happened to get their run at the right time,” Alexis Peterson said. “We just wanted to stay composed, stay poised and keep turning them over and keep playing hard.”And Syracuse had its opportunities at the end. The Orange went on a 13-2 run to make it a three-point game with 45 seconds left courtesy of three 3-pointers.Wake Forest’s Ataijah Taylor missed a shot with 24 seconds left and the game depended on the ensuing rebound. Players from both teams sprawled across the court and the ball ricocheted around the paint before ultimately landing in Hamby’s hands. Had SU gotten the board, it would’ve had a chance to send the game to overtime.But that chance never came and fittingly, the game’s most important moment was a rebound that Syracuse couldn’t control.“If you look at the stat line, it’s amazing,” Hillsman said. “It tells a story.” Comments Published on March 5, 2015 at 1:02 pm Contact Paul: pmschwed@syr.edu | @pschweds Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

USC Village dining hall emphasizes health, sustainability

first_imgComplete with stained glass windows, a collegiate gothic ceiling and cardinal and gold banners showcasing the Five Traits of a Trojan, the USC Village dining hall has been frequently compared to Hogwarts. However, Chef Nathan Martinez is trying to set it apart as an icon that stands on its own.“We’d rather call it a cathedral for culinary masterpieces,” he said.Located on the ground floor of the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Foundation Honors Hall, the new dining hall will align with the principles of USC’s Food Philosophy and the Menus of Change University Research Collaborative, which focuses on seasonal foods and plant-based dining, smaller portions of red meat and the reduction of salt and sugar. It will also have an emphasis on healthy foods, sustainable practices and a variety of food options.“There’s different things in every station to give it that complete variety — to give it that feel that you’re getting some of the food from Parkside [Restaurant], some of the food from EVK, some of the food from old [Café] 84, and then some of the newer developments in the USC Village,” Martinez said. “Most of the stuff we try to do is not repetitive.”The dining hall features a 42-item salad bar, a deli station where students can create their own sandwiches on artisan bread, and an Asian cuisine station with hot pot, gyoza, dim sum and moo shu wraps. For dessert, students can choose from sweet and savory crepes, gelato, cobbler, pastries and local, sustainable and organic hand fruits. However, the dining hall’s flagship feature is its plant-based station, according to Martinez. “Everything there is vegan, down to the breads and the offerings that we give,” he said. “My biggest thing on it is that it’s actually made for everybody to enjoy. I try to create flavors and profiles that anybody would want to eat on a regular basis, and not realize they’re eating plant-based at the same time.” Aside from healthy and sustainable food, the new dining hall aims to have a restaurant-like atmosphere that goes beyond collegiate dining, according to associate director for residential dining Erik Russell. The 8,000 square-foot space seats up to 450, and is prepared to serve 3,000 meals a day. “We’re really working on upgrading the food experience and dining experience as a whole,” he said. “It’s completely different than anything we’ve done … It’s a big step forward for us.” One of Martinez’s main focuses is to provide USC students with the highest quality of food possible.“I don’t want to have subpar anything, because you guys deserve it,” he said. “You guys work just as hard as we do to get through classes. You guys deserve some of the best food out there.”Katie Chin | Daily Trojanlast_img read more

In ‘weird’ times, Freiburg’s Schmid prepares for football’s restart

first_img“Now we are working in groups of four. Avoiding contact; no tackling.”“Football is a contact sport. A player needs that,” Schmid said.“We’re already happy to be back on the pitch, on the ball, and having fun with a few team-mates on the field.“We’re ready to go! We’ve been training more intensely than we do in the pre-season. There have been a lot of sprints, a lot of changes of direction.“To avoid injuries that we are training harder. Maybe there will be less training and more games. As a player, I’d rather play lots as they do in England than train for five days!”– Giving it your all –If the Bundesliga resumes it will be behind closed doors, with players’ voices echoing around empty stadiums. It is not the way Schmid wanted to try to lead his club into a place in European competition next season.“I’ve never played behind closed doors. There’ll be something missing. With the stadium and the fans behind us, it’s tough for away teams to win at Freiburg. It’s always a plus,” said Schmid, who came up through the club’s youth system.“You have to be prepared for that and keep giving it your all.”There has been talk of Bundesliga players wearing masks on the field.“Walking around with a mask is uncomfortable. I wear one when we go shopping. It’s not comfortable to breathe. So playing football…,” he said, ending with a laugh.Like their Bundesliga counterparts at other clubs, Freiburg players have taken a pay cut.“The club asked us to lower our salaries to help groundstaff and office workers. We agreed. It was a good thing to do it compared to everything they do for us.“We wanted to give back something that would allow them to continue to live, because they also have families and rent to pay. It’s harder for them than it is for us. A little gesture does good.” Jonathan Schmid is looking forward to playing again though he says he would miss the Freiburg fans Jonathan Schmid is looking forward to playing again though he says he would miss the Freiburg fansParis, France | AFP |  Freiburg midfielder Jonathan Schmid said he is “not at all” afraid to return to the pitch but acknowledges that a second wave of coronavirus infections would put paid to German football’s plans to complete its interrupted season.“Germany wants to finish their championship,” the 29-year-old Frenchman told AFP. “We’re training for that. We’ll be ready when it resumes.”The German Football League (DFL) wants to restart matches in empty stadiums from May 16, providing it gets the final green light from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government. A decision is expected on Wednesday.Those plans were thrown into question on Monday when the league said its testing of players, coaches and backroom staff had produced 10 positive cases. Three are known to be from top-flight side Cologne.Germany has been less affected by the pandemic than other European countries, an outcome partly attributed to mass testing.Schmid said any signs that football’s return had produced a new surge in infections would halt the restart plans.“If there is a second wave and it affects some clubs, I think the season will be over,” said Schmid.“The clubs don’t want to risk everything. But it’s also important to get back on track for the economic survival of the clubs.”Despite having two children, Schmid said he was not worried about the possibility of infection.“No, not at all afraid. If we’re allowed to do it, then it’s safe,” said Schmid.“We get tested once a week. If I am positive, I will stay away from my children and my wife. That’s the advantage for us, we’re being followed.”Most German clubs resumed training on April 7 but put in place stringent social distancing measures.“At first it was weird. You arrive at the training area already changed and go straight home for a shower. We don’t have a lot of time to communicate either.“We don’t shake hands, we greet each other from a distance. It feels weird. The coaches don’t want us to get too close to each other.“But the most important thing is to get back on the pitch… with the ball, doing a few exercises and a fresh environment, it was a change compared to being at home!”The training is evolving.
