Women’s basketball: Badgers have disappointing loss in final regular season game

first_imgUniversity of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (9-20, 2-14 Big Ten) finished their regular season this past Wednesday, losing against Michigan State (17-12, 7-9 Big Ten) 69-61 in East Lansing. Though a loss, senior Cayla McMorris and junior Marsha Howard took the offensive reins in this game.While some were impressed by the Badgers’ effort last week in a close defeat versus Rutgers, the performance by leading scorer McMorris last night at the Breslin Center was perhaps more exciting. McMorris started the game hot, scoring 12 out of her 15 points in the first quarter.Though slowly losing steam, the Badgers were down by only three against the Spartans to end the half. For the Badger fans, this was an exciting moment as the team was within arm’s reach of taking the lead at halftime.Women’s Hockey: Another successful regular season comes to a close against MinnesotaDespite some late-season slip-ups, the No. 1 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team lived up to their lofty expectations and Read…Unfortunately, it was going to take more than the Badgers provided to actually secure the win. Wisconsin took the loss because of low numbers in rebounding, which for the majority, were offensive.It was a close game, with Wisconsin ending the contest down by just eight. While Wisconsin had a similar field goal percentage, Michigan State’s rebounding gave the team more shooting opportunities.Howard scored 28 points, her season-high, along with 11 rebounds. This gave Howard an impressive double-double in the box score. With almost 46 percent of the team’s final points, Howard had a personal field goal percentage of 63 percent, much higher than any of the Spartans’ top-scorers.Figure skating club glides into second place in synchronized skatingAmidst the hullabaloo of the Winter Olympics, among the voices of novice figure-skating viewers critiquing Biellmann spins and bracket turns Read…Impressive as each of these are individually, one-third of Howard’s season highs now come from this final game of her junior year, which shows promise for her season year. She is now working her way up as a strong leader of the women on this team, especially now that she’s nearing her senior year and final season as a Badger.It was almost as if the game was a passing of the torch with senior McMorris. As McMorris finishes her time here, joining the 1,000 point club last Sunday, Howard is stepping up.Badger fans should be excited to see if Howard can continue this level of play in the Big Ten Tournament next week in Indianapolis.last_img read more

Lakers’ Luol Deng understands being placed on inactive list

first_imgEL SEGUNDO >> The move marked the latest sign on how Lakers coach Luke Walton has accelerated his shift toward developing his young players. It also marked the latest sign of the Lakers’ stock plummeting on reserve forward Luol Deng, whose four-year, $72 million deal has yielded only a 7.6 points per game average on a career-low 38.6 percent shooting in his 13th NBA season.Walton put Deng on the inactive list during the Lakers’ 115-95 loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday at Staples Center for a simple reason. As Walton put it, “We’re trying to get looks at all the young guys that we can.”“I totally understand what we’re doing,” Deng told Southern California News Group. “He wants the guys to be in situations where they learn and play minutes. It’s always about what we’re trying to do. Why am I going to be on the bench if I’m not playing?”Deng originally lost his starting spot on Feb. 6 against New York in favor of rookie forward Brandon Ingram. After averaging 4.1 points on 27.8 percent shooting in 21.3 minutes in seven games off the bench, Deng sat out Tuesday’s game against Charlotte because of a coach’s decision. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersWalton cited the need to play Ingram, third-year guard Jordan Clarkson, newly acquired guard Tyler Ennis (from Houston) and newly acquired guard/forward David Nwaba (signed to 10-day contract). It is not clear what Deng’s status will be when the Lakers (19-43) host the New Orleans Pelicans (24-38) on Sunday at Staples Center, or if either Walton or Deng would be open toward him playing on even more reduced minutes. “He wants to play the young guys, so I’m not going to play,” Deng said. “So there’s no point of being on the active roster and sit on the bench. He’s got to keep all the guys he’s going to play and evaluate.” Different viewpointsThe words sounded puzzling, both for the substance and in how Lakers second-year guard D’Angelo Russell delivered them. Of all the factors that led to the Lakers’ double-digit loss on Friday to the Boston Celtics, Russell refused to chalk it up to the team’s youth. Instead, he cited something indicting for any professional sports team. “I feel like we stopped playing,” Russell said, “stopped competing.”center_img Walton and his players have occasionally lamented the team’s effort this season. But not against the Lakers’ heated rival. “I don’t agree with that,” Walton said of Russell’s assessment. “I thought our team did show up to play. I think Boston is a very good team and was executing and making their shots. When we hit adversity, that’s when we crumbled.”Walton pulled his starters three minutes into the second half after becoming frustrated with the team’s stagnant offense. Later, the Lakers’ reserves helped chip away a 31-point deficit down to 15 entering the fourth quarter. While the Lakers have occasionally lamented their effort this season, they frequently admit they have struggled with handling adversity. “When people go on runs, we can’t put our head down and start losing our minds and try to do it on our own,” said Clarkson, who scored all of his 20 points in the second half. “We have to come together and push through that. This league and these games, it’ll go up and down. You have to fight through those runs. That’s how you build yourself up.” last_img read more
