Badgers fight through adversity for 65-57 victory over Indiana

first_imgForward Lin Zastrow shined in her last game at the Kohl Center hitting 8 of 12 shots from the field and all 5 free throws for 21 points.[/media-credit]The 2010-2011 Wisconsin women’s basketball season has had its fair share of nail-biting finishes that concluded with the Badgers on the proverbial short end of the stick. Wednesday night saw Wisconsin fight through multiple forms of adversity and pull off a much-needed win against the Indiana Hoosiers 65-57.The contest began with a furious pace that saw Wisconsin score 16 points before even missing a shot. The impressive run would end with a 19-5 lead seven minutes into the game, but the Hoosiers finally woke up going on several small runs before the end of the half to make it 30-26 at the break.Turnovers were huge a problem for Wisconsin, committing 20 through the course of the game and a key reason as to why Indiana was able to crawl back and even take a four-point lead about eight minutes into the second half.The Badgers needed someone to step up and it was senior forward Lin Zastrow who took control of the game, scoring 15 points in the second half and finishing with 21 points on 8-of-12 shooting, including a perfect 5-of-5 from the free throw line. She also had a game-high five assists, one shy of her career high.“She is one of the best five players in the conference,” Indiana head coach Felisha Legette-Jack said. “It is not a secret about Lin Zastrow. She is an unbelievable player.”Indiana entered the game boasting its own star player, the Big Ten’s third leading scorer at 19.2 points per game, senior guard Jori Davis. Unfortunately for Indiana, Wisconsin was able to showcase a Davis of its own, Jade, a lockdown defender.Jade Davis won the first half battle, holding Jori Davis to two points from the free throw line and forcing her to shoot 0-of-8 from the field.Second half star power was the common theme for both teams. Just like Zastrow, Jori locked on in the second half and seemed to win part two of the Davis vs. Davis matchup, converting seven of her 13 field goal attempts to finish with a total of 17 points.Wisconsin needed every single one of Zastrow’s points in order to prevent another late game fold like the ones that seem to have haunted the Badgers this season. With the loss of senior forward Tara Steinbauer to a torn ACL last week, carrying the scoring load may be something Zastrow will have to continue doing come tournament play.“I thought Lin responded in a big way in the second half,” Wisconsin head coach Lisa Stone said. “She took over when we needed her to.”Wisconsin had the added help of guards Alyssa Karel and Davis, scoring 12 and 10 points respectively, but most impressive was Karel’s game high and career-tying day on the glass, corralling eight rebounds. Rebounding was something Karel hinted earlier in the week was something she might try to improve with the loss of Steinbauer, and it appeared the ball wanted to bounce her way Wednesday night.“I was sitting on the ground at one point and I looked up and the ball landed in my lap,” Karel said. “I was just trying to maybe be a little more aggressive here and there going after the boards and maybe trying to pick up something we lost in Tara.”It was the second game in a row and only the fourth time all season Davis has scored 10 or more points in a game, and she continues to look more confident when her number is called to shoot the ball.“My shot is really coming together,” Davis said. “It’s taken a long long time definitely but the confidence has always been there. It’s just that I have to step up and take the big shots sometimes and it kind of relieves a lot of pressure off Lin and Alyssa when I am able to step up and take a shot. It gives them more open shots.”The collective effort and solid free throw shooting down the stretch, 18-of-22 for the game, allowed Wisconsin to fight back and take the lead for good at 49-47, so the seniors were able to walk off the Kohl Center floor for the final time with a victory.“They were not going to let each other lose this game today,” Stone said. “They really hung together and got over the hump and made the free throws down the stretch.”last_img read more

Salah snatches winner as Egypt edge Tunisia in Cup of Nations

first_imgJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP | Mohamed Salah scored in the final minute to give Egypt a 3-2 home victory over Tunisia on Friday in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations match between two countries who have already qualified.The Liverpool star chipped the ball into the net to complete the scoring in a seesaw matchday 5 struggle during which both sides led.Salah has scored four goals in Cup of Nations qualifiers — two less than chart-topper Odion Ighalo of Nigeria.Naim Sliti gave Tunisia an early lead that Mahmoud ‘Trezeguet’ Hassan cancelled before half-time at the 86,000-seat Borg el Arab stadium in Alexandria.Baher el Mohamad nodded Egypt in front on the hour only for Sliti to score again with 18 minutes remaining and a draw seemed likely until Salah struck.Before flying to Egypt, Salah continued a return to form after a slow start to the English Premier League season by scoring the first goal for Liverpool in a 2-0 win over Fulham.It was his sixth league goal this season, and eighth for his club in all competitions.Salah had a sensational first season with Liverpool, scoring 44 goals in all competitions in the 2017/2018 campaign after joining from Roma.Victory brought Egypt level with Tunisia in Group J on 12 points, but the losers retained first place on head-to-head records.Tunisia entered the match as the only team among the 48 in the qualifying competition boasting a 100 percent record having beaten Egypt at home, eSwatini away and Niger twice.It was the first match in charge for Tunisian co-caretaker coaches Mourad Okbi and Maher Kanzari after veteran Faouzi Benzarti was axed despite delivering four victories.– Ziyech brace –Madagascar, Senegal and hosts Cameroon have also qualified for the 2019 Cup of Nations — the first to feature 24 teams — and another 15 countries could secure places this weekend.Morocco are almost certain to be among the finalists after a second-half brace from Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Hakim Ziyech brought a 2-0 win over Cameroon in Casablanca. Share on: WhatsApp With Cameroon qualifying automatically from Group B as hosts, Morocco have a six-point advantage over Malawi for the other qualifying place.Malawi will have to win away to out-of-contention Comoros Saturday and then achieve an unlikely four-goal home victory over the Moroccans next March to finish second.Ziyech converted a 54th-minute penalty to put the Atlas Lions ahead and netted again on 66 minutes.Cameroon, suffering their first loss in four matches since Dutch coach Clarence Seedorf took charge, were reduced to 10 men on 80 minutes when Karl Toko Ekambi was sent off.In Juba, Burundi climbed above Mali and Gabon to top Group C with a 5-2 win over South Sudan as Fiston Abdul Razak scored four goals.A close first half ended with the Burundians leading 2-1 as Razak scored, Atak Lual equalised and Cedric Amissi put the east Africans ahead a second time.Dominic Aboy brought bottom team South Sudan level again before Razak netted three times in 11 minutes for Burundi, who have seeking a first Cup of Nations appearance.Burundi have nine points, Mali eight, Gabon seven and South Sudan none with the second and third-place teams meeting in Libreville Saturday.The top two finishers qualify and a Malian victory over Gabon would assure them of a place at the June 15-July 13 tournament.last_img read more

Financial rules at risk of being ‘scuppered’ if Man City overturn European ban

first_imgManchester City fortunes have been transformed by owner Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s takeover of the club in 2008London, United Kingdom | AFP |  European football’s financial fair play rules risk being “scuppered” if Manchester City overturn their two-season ban from continental competition, according to a soccer analyst.UEFA announced the punishment on Friday and also imposed a fine of 30 million euros ($32 million, £25 million) on the English champions for what it said were City’s serious breaches of its FFP regime.City, however, wasted little time in responding by saying they would appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in the hope of securing an “impartial judgment”.Since the Sheikh Mansour takeover in 2008, which put the financial might of Abu Dhabi behind them, City have won 10 major trophies — including four Premier League titles.Yet the prize that has eluded them is the one the Abu Dhabi project most desires — the UEFA Champions League.The Chinese government have provided City with additional backing, as has US private equity firm Silver Lake.They are all set to ensure City has a no expense spared legal team that will challenge the validity of UEFA’s ruling.Should City succeed, the entire FFP system could collapse, according to Professor Simon Chadwick, director at the Centre for the Eurasian Sport Industry.– ‘Transnational power’ –“In essence UEFA has to try to win this because, if it doesn’t win or is undermined in any way, then its position on Financial Fair Play begins to unravel…FFP is scuppered,” Chadwick told Britain’s Press Association news agency.“However, they are not taking on Wigan, they are taking on Asian governments, US tech investors and some of the smartest, most-talented people in football.“It is transnational power versus localised governance.”Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was just one of several leading football figures stunned by the severity of the UEFA punishment. “It was a shock,” said Klopp, whose Champions League title holders are on well on course to succeed City as champions of England.“What they have done on the football pitch is exceptional. The rest, I don’t know,” added Klopp, speaking after a 1-0 win at bottom-of-the-table Norwich on Saturdy saw leaders Liverpool extend their advantage over second-placed City at the top of the Premier League to 25 points.UEFA say City have breached FFP rules that place restrictions on how much money a club can lose.Over a three-year period, clubs are not permitted to lose more than 30 million euros with exceptions for costs such as youth development and women’s teams.UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body found City ensured they did not fall foul of those restrictions by overstating their sponsorship revenue between 2012 and 2016.If City’s appeal fails, manager Pep Guardiola and several star players could leave the club.Guardiola’s contract runs until the end of the 2020/21 season, but the only major task left for the Catalan in Manchester is to make City European champions for the first time.City play Real Madrid in the last 16 of this season’s edition and if the campaign ends with the club yet to lift the Champions League trophy, Guardiola may bow out rather than compete for domestic honours alone.Similarly, players of the calibre of Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling are unlikely to want to waste two of their peak years without the lure of Champions League football.

ISPS Handa European Masters invites for past champions

first_img17 Jul 2013 ISPS Handa European Masters invites for past champions Two former English champions will return to top level Tour golf in next week’s ISPS Handa Ladies’ European Masters at The Buckinghamshire – thanks to England Golf.Kiran Matharu (top) from Cookridge Hall in Yorkshire, and Lucy Williams, from Mid-Herts, have had players’ invitations passed to them by England Golf as part of a strategy to support former amateurs.Rebecca Wood, England Golf’s Performance Manager for women’s golf, commented: “We are keen to support and provide opportunities for young players to bridge the gap between amateur and professional golf.“These two invitations will give Kiran and Lucy a platform to step up and perform at the highest level in European professional golf and may change their fortunes for the future.”For both players the event, which starts on Friday July 26, marks a return to the big-time. Kiran, 24, took a few months off after losing her LET card at the end of last season and said: “I didn’t enjoy it anymore and that’s why I had a break. I only started playing again when I wanted to.“I really wanted to play at The Buckinghamshire so I really appreciated the invitation,” she addedNow, with some changes made, her game is in good shape and Kiran has already eased through this week’s pre-qualifying event for the Ricoh Women’s British Open. “I’m playing well – I wasn’t before, but I’ve made a few changes and now I’m getting ready for next week.“I played well there last year, even though I was struggling and hardly hitting any fairways, and I’m definitely a better player than last year.”Kiran was the 2006 English champion and turned pro later that year after playing in the Curtis Cup. Despite losing her card, she’s had a number of high finishes and is a past winner of the Volvo Cross Country Challenge, a mini order of merit covering events in the Nordic countries.Lucy Williams also 24, is also approaching the event with a renewed appetite for the game and a recent success under her belt, having won the WPGA championship at Slaley Hall by 11 shots.She combined her amateur golf with a degree in Applied Golf Management Studies at Birmingham University and also qualified as a PGA professional. Lucy enjoyed plenty of success, winning the 2011 English amateur, the 2008 English mid-amateur and helping her university to win the world student matchplay championship.She found the transition to Tour golf challenging, playing initially on the LET and, for the first part of this year, on the Access Series, where the top 25 players and ties make the cut. “I found that quite difficult and felt I was putting pressure on my golf and not enjoying it.“So I started playing smaller events to try and enjoy playing again and get my confidence up again. I’m playing nicely and looking forward to next week.”She knows and likes the course, it’s only 45 minutes from home, her father, David, will be on the bag, and there will be a get-together with friends who have also made the move from amateur to pro ranks over recent years. “I’m really excited about playing in it” said Lucy.In addition to these invites, England Golf is also supporting an inaugural LET Access Series event in England, the WPGA International Challenge at Stoke-By-Nayland in September.For more information at the ISPS Handa Ladies’ European Masters visit  Anyone who pre-registers by midnight on Wednesday 24th July 2013 will get a special offer price of a £10 season ticket per person.Image © Tristan Joneslast_img read more

Osama Bin Laden picture placed in stadium of English football team

Powered by Firework After more than three months, football is finally back in action in England, as the top leagues have all resumed the ongoing seasons. However, the atmosphere in the stadium is quite different, as the remaining matches are to be played in a behind closed doors format, due to the presence of COVID-19 threat. Meantime, a number of clubs decided to go ahead with cardboard cutouts of spectators in an attempt to recreate some of the pre-Coronavirus stadium atmosphere. However, it all went wrong in case of Leeds United, as the notorious Osama Bin Laden was spotted in their stands!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/MirrorWhile the stadium crazy spectators are unable to attend the matches, Leeds reached out to its fans to send the photos of themselves and their loved ones to be placed as cardboard cutouts at their home ground at Elland Road, for the price of £25 to have a 76cm x 46cm cardboard copy of themselves to be placed in the seats.Unfortunately, the move bit the EFL Championship back in the face, as the image of the al-Qaeda leader was spotted on one of the cardboard cutouts to be used during Leeds’ face off against Fulham this Saturday.Advertisement One fan spotted his own photo next to Laden’s cutout, and uploaded the image on Twitter which soon went viral all over the micro blogging website. While the photos were rapidly gaining hysterical reactions from the netizens, the club soon noticed the hilarious yet offensive error, and immediately took to action to have the cardboard removed.While it has been nine years since the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks was killed by the United States Navy SEALs in 2011, football stadium wasn’t an unfamiliar place for Laden. It was later discovered that the notorious terrorist mastermind was an avid fan of Arsenal, and often went to see the Gunners home matches during his residence in London in the 1990s.Leeds are currently second in the Championship table, with 71 points from 38 matches.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Reporter reminds hattrick hero Anthony Martial to collect matchball!37 year old Sreesanth admits he didn’t know about change in cricket rules during ban Advertisementlast_img read more
