Syracuse senior point guard Frank Howard could return for 1st game

first_imgSyracuse senior point guard Frank Howard could return to practice about one week before the season opener, SU head coach Jim Boeheim said Friday. That timetable could put him on track to play in Syracuse’s first regular-season game, which is Nov. 6.Howard, wearing a protective boot on his left leg, sustained a basketball-related injury sometime in September. The injury was announced Sept. 14. Howard has not practiced since then. He expects to return to practice in about three weeks, before the Orange’s 2018-19 regular-season opener Nov. 6 against Eastern Washington inside the Carrier Dome.“We expect that, if all goes well, he would be able to practice about a week before our first regular-season game,” Boeheim said Friday afternoon. “If everything goes according to plan.”Howard will begin walking next week without the boot. In the meantime, freshman guard Jalen Carey has taken many of Howard’s point-guard time in practice, Boeheim said. The preseason experience aids in Carey’s acclimation to the SU system, familiarizes him with the running the offense and could set him on track to be Syracuse’s first guard off the bench.“It hurts a little bit,” Boeheim said of Howard’s injury. “But if he was playing and Jalen wasn’t playing, it would hurt Jalen a lot more because he’s learning the system. Frank knows what we do. He sees what’s going on. I thought coming in off the summer and fall that Frank was playing the best that I’ve seen him play here. And I think he’ll get right back to that pretty quickly.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLast season, the Orange went 23-14 overall and 8-10 in conference play. They return all five starters, including Howard, who averaged 14.4 points and 4.7 assists. He shot 37.6 percent from the floor and 32.7 percent from 3-point territory.As a junior last season, Howard improved in his ball handling while limiting his turnovers (3.41 per game), both of which prevented him from playing significant minutes during his first two seasons. In 2017-18, he became the floor general SU needed him to be at the top of the offense, starting in all 37 games and averaging 38.4 minutes per contest.Boeheim said last month that Howard will be “as important” this coming season as he was last year.Syracuse’s first exhibition game is Oct. 25 versus Saint Rose in the Carrier Dome.

DONEGAL LEAD AT CROKER: HISTORIC DOUBLE STILL ON THE CARDS

first_imgMichael Murphy: put Donegal ahead.Donegal 1-08 Dublin 0-10Donegal’s senior footballers’ dream of  joining their minors at All-Ireland finals day is on the cards as they lead reigning champions Dublin in their semi-final clash at Croke Park.Jim McGuinness’s men are ahead by a single point at the break against a Dublin side that threatened to over-run the Ulster champions with the type of football that has them the bookies’ favourites to retain the title. However, after a shakey start Donegal have fought back and are well in contention for retaining the title they last won in 2012.Donegal got off to the a great start, Colm McFadden firing over a free in the first minute to put the Tir Chonaill men ahead.However, Dublin were three ahead within four minutes, putting over four unanswered points.Karl Lacey put over a lovely point in the 13th minute to settle the nerves but Dublin hit back with three unanswered points to open up a five point advantage in the 20th minute. Michael Murphy kept his nerve to successfully convert a free in the 21st minute to keep his side in touch.Funston and Kavanagh exchanged points before Durkan got down brilliantly to push out what looked an almost certain goal from Connolly.Connolly made amends with an excellent point which was followed by two unanswered points for Donegal to put three between the sides in the 28th minute.Murphy had an excellent chance to reduce the arrears but his weak shot from 20 yards fell tamelessly short.But he made up for the miss with an excellent long distanee point immediately afterwards. Ryan McHugh put Donegal ahead when he took advantage of poor Dublin defending when slid the ball to back of the net two minutes from the break.A late Dublin point sees Donegal lead by the slenerest of lead at the break and on course to emulate their minors who earlier reached their first ever All-Ireland final with a thrilling win over Dublin.Donegal: Durkan, E. McGee N. McGee McGrath; Thompson, Lacey, McGlynn; Gallagher, MacNiallais; David Walsh, McLoone, McHugh; Kavanagh, Murphy, McFadden.DONEGAL LEAD AT CROKER: HISTORIC DOUBLE STILL ON THE CARDS was last modified: August 31st, 2014 by johngerardShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:alldonegaldublinFootballIrelandsemi-finalSeniorlast_img read more
