Hughes: Badgers are silencing Big Ten’s top talent

first_imgJust when you think you’ve figured out the pecking order in Big Ten men’s basketball, a peasant rises up and convincingly buries an elite.If you watched the Badgers’ last two games, you witnessed two perfect examples. Thursday, fourth-place Wisconsin got dispatched by eighth-place Iowa for the second time this year. Then, on Sunday, Wisconsin upset second-place and then-No. 9 Ohio State on its own floor.There are examples like this with basically every team in the conference this year. Your guess as to how the Big Ten tournament will play out is as good as mine.Michigan State, though looking like a champion, could nevertheless be upset on a neutral floor (the Spartans have lost to three different Big Ten teams this season on the road, and only one is currently in the top four of the standings). The winner of this tournament will likely exude some sort of critical ingredient over its four- or three-game tournament run that none of the others will have.This ingredient could be anything – a guard that scores at will, or a posse of free throw shooting machines, or a defense that doesn’t let you get to the rim.Who knows what the key ingredient will be. But one thing I do know is that the Badgers themselves are developing a pretty solid card to play. With an occasional exception, the Badgers have been able to contain most of the league’s top offensive threats.A tendency like that – to quiet a player not only the best on his team, but one of the league’s top talents – could be a ticket that can take them far in the conference tournament.Tournaments are, of course, (and please forgive the clich?) do-or-die time. And that kind of atmosphere brings out the best performances in any teams’ most talented players.To no one’s surprise, teams win when their best player is kicking names and taking ass – or something like that. Luckily, the Badgers haven’t let their names get kicked or asses taken by the Big Ten’s stars much this year.Indiana’s Cody Zeller was a ghost at the Kohl Center, scoring seven points and notching four personal fouls (credit to Jared Berggren). Illinois’ Brandon Paul scored 10 points on 3-for-11 shooting and didn’t have an assist to his name (credit to Josh Gasser).Northwestern’s John Shurna dissolved in the second half against the Badgers, scoring seven points and grabbing two rebounds. Purdue’s Robbie Hummel managed 13 points against Wisconsin, but on 5-of-17 shooting, and had only three rebounds despite playing at home.These are all top 10 scorers in Big Ten play, by the way.Continuing on: Iowa’s Matt Gatens (33 points) and Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger (24 points) each have had productive games against the Wisconsin defense but had rough days too. In their first meeting, Gatens went 2-for-9 and put up six points. In a rematch with Sullinger, the Badgers gave him an allowance of just eight points and six rebounds.There are three players in the top 10 that got the better of Wisconsin, however: Michigan State’s Draymond Green, Penn State’s Tim Frazier and Michigan’s Trey Burke. (For those that are counting, UW’s Jordan Taylor is the top 10 scorer I have not mentioned.)Should the Badgers run into those three players again in the tournament, there’s no telling what damage they’re liable to inflict. What we do know, though, is that Frazier has little, if any support, on his Nittany Lions squad, so his offensive outbursts don’t mean as much.Gatens has been subdued before – and when he tore the Badgers apart last Thursday, he was amid an incredible two-game shooting streak where he hit 12 consecutive three-pointers. He’s a consistent scorer, but the chances of him repeating a performance like that are slim.Green is the one to worry about. In two games, he put together 38 points and snagged 24 rebounds against the Badgers. Green and Sullinger are forces around the rim that Berggren struggled to contain earlier this season. (Green would also get my Big Ten Player of the Year vote as of this moment, along with many others.)Berggren made quite a leap in defending Sullinger on his second go-around, and when you consider his work on other conference bigs (like Illinois’ Meyers Leonard), it leads me to wonder if he can deliver a humbling experience to Green, an absolute double-double machine.Either way, the Badgers have shown a propensity to pipe down the kinds of players who are most likely to take over a game and make those around him play better. In tournament time – and just in any game, for that matter – that’s huge.Elliot is a senior majoring in journalism. What do you think of Wisconsin’s work against some of the Big Ten’s finest talent?

West Ham players need to “step it up”, warns Moyes

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | New West Ham boss David Moyes warned his under-performing players to “step it up” or face the axe as he appeared before the press for the first time on Wednesday.The former Everton and Manchester United boss replaced Slaven Bilic on Tuesday and faces a tough task to turn around the fortunes of the London club, mired in the Premier League relegation zone.Moyes has already overseen two gruelling training sessions since he was appointed.Questions were raised about the fitness levels of the squad under Bilic, with damning statistics showing they were bottom of the class when it came to sprints and distance covered.But Moyes, who is in talks to bring in no-nonsense former Hammers defender Stuart Pearce as part of his coaching staff, said there would be no easing up on his watch.“If you are asking me where my best attribute is, it’s out on the grass training with players, but we need the players to show it,” he said.“Once they know they are running the least and sprinting the least they need to take responsibility.“The sessions will be tough for them but hopefully they will enjoy it too. We are working them hard and trying to get the best we can out of them.”Moyes, who believes he needs to rebuild his reputation after a number of managerial failures, said the players were anxious to showcase their worth but said if they did not put the effort in, they would not play. “Step it up or you won’t play, if you don’t run you won’t play. I’m in a hurry and they need to be in a hurry too,” he said.Moyes has been given a contract until the end of the season, with a clear brief to pull the club away from relegation trouble.“It’s good for us both,” said the 54-year-old Scot. “It’s good for me because I’m back in, it’s what I do and want to do well. I think it’s good for West Ham as well, they’ve got a good manager.“Managers aren’t now having long-term contracts so I’m more than comfortable. If I’d taken over at the start of season I’d have said a year at the time.“It gives me a chance to see the east end of London, to see the players, and let West Ham see what David Moyes can do.“My ambition at the moment is only short term, I have to win games, get us away from the wrong end of the table — and the squad is good enough.”Moyes managed Everton for 11 years from 2002 before leaving the club to replace Alex Ferguson at Manchester United but was dismissed after just 10 months in charge. He also had a disappointing stint in Spain with Real Sociedad.“I do have a point to prove,” he said. “Sometimes you have to repair things and maybe I’ve got a little bit to repair.”Moyes has been out of management since he resigned from his post at Sunderland at the end of last season after failing to prevent the northeast club being relegated from the Premier LeagueShare on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Westinghouse, Obama top 2013 All-City Girls Basketball Team

first_imgThe New Pittsburgh Courier 2013 All-City Girls Basketball Team is a mirror of the top teams in the reduced number of league teams this season. Obama, Westinghouse, Carrick and Allderdice were the best teams placing the most players on the team. There is only one player returning from last season’s First Team, Jasmine Myers from Westinghouse. She not only repeated on the First Team but was almost a unanimous choice as the Player of the Year. Joining Myers on the first team are two players from last season’s Third Team, Aaquila Youngblood from Obama and Chardonnay Littlejohn from Carrick. Also making the First Team is Brittany Jackson from Westinghouse and Sierra Fordham from Allderdice. Sydnee Abernathy from Allderdice barely missed the First Team. The only other repeats were: Latosha Fortson from Perry who moved from Third Team last season to Second Team this season, and Sierra Fordham from Allderdice who moved from Honorable Mention to First Team, receiving one vote for Player of the Year.

Jets’ Nelson hosting foster kid who made headlines

first_imgNew York Jets wide receiver David Nelson kneels during the second half of an NFL football game against the Oakland Raiders, Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013, in East Rutherford, N.J. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — David Nelson needed to do something as soon as he heard Davion Only’s story.The New York Jets wide receiver was blown away, just as so many others around the world were, by Only’s emotional adoption plea in October. Only, a 15-year-old boy who was born in prison and raised in foster care, stood up in front of a church congregation in St. Petersburg, Fla., and begged for a family to love him.“I’ll take anyone,” Only said. “Old or young, Dad or Mom, black, white, purple, I don’t care. And I would be really appreciative. The best I could be.”It was enough to send many to tears, eager to try to help. Nelson, who started the nonprofit organization i’mME with his two brothers to aid orphaned children, got on the phone with his publicist immediately.“It’s a powerful story,” Nelson said in an interview with The Associated Press. “I read it and just felt a calling to reach out to Davion.”5-year-old Davion Only has been inundated with people offering to adopt him after his public plea for a familyOnly, who has since been featured on various television talk shows and news programs, is getting a chance at his dream as he’ll spend the holidays with prospective adoptive parents. But first, he’ll be a guest of Nelson and his organization in New York this weekend.Only and a friend will tour Manhattan, including trips to Rockefeller Center, FAO Schwartz and Central Park.“A crash course in Christmastime in the city,” Nelson said, smiling.Only will also meet with Nelson and other players Sunday before the Jets’ game against the Cleveland Browns at MetLife Stadium.“My reasoning was to get him out here, get him to the football game and get him around the guys, not so he could be blessed by the guys but so the guys could meet him and kind of be blessed,” Nelson said. “He speaks on behalf of all the orphans across America who are in his shoes, to speak on behalf of the voiceless.”That’s a subject close to Nelson’s heart, one that drives him each day to try to make a difference.It’s a journey that began during Memorial Day weekend in 2011, when he traveled to Haiti with his then-girlfriend and her sister to visit abandoned and orphaned children. Nelson, then playing for the Buffalo Bills, figured it would make for a nice publicity opportunity. Once he got there, everything changed.“Honestly, I went there for selfish reasons, really,” he said. “To see these kids, who have nothing they can call their own or have anything to hold onto, you get to know them and spend time with them, you realize, ‘Wow, these kids don’t want my money, or the toys or candy that I brought for them. They just want me to hold them, sing them a song or play soccer with them.’“That touched me on a deep, intimate level. I was wrecked and completely humbled.”He and his brothers Patrick and Daniel had drifted apart over the years, but while in Haiti, he felt an inexplicable urge to re-connect with them. So, after returning from the trip, he told his brothers about his experience and asked them if they’d like to join him when he went back to Haiti.Less than two months later, all three Nelson brothers were in Haiti, reunited and spending time helping abandoned children.“The whole time we were there,” Nelson recalled, “we were saying, ‘We were made for this. We were made to help these kids.’”The brothers decided to make their mission official, establishing the nonprofit i’mMe on Jan. 5, 2013.“We just haven’t looked back,” said Nelson, who has traveled to Haiti about seven times. “And, it’s been an incredible journey.”The brothers are currently holding a 35-day campaign called “House The Vision,” a fundraising drive to help them get started on building a family village in Haiti. With the Jets out of the playoff picture, Nelson is scheduled to fly to Haiti on Jan. 15 and get to work on the planned eight or nine cottages which will house six or seven kids each.He keeps in touch with several of the children he has met, using Skype and emails to stay connected. Nelson and his brothers are also in the process of obtaining legal guardianship over 22 kids in Haiti.“We were leaving one time and a kid walked up to me to give me a hug, and she said something in Creole and I didn’t know what it meant,” Nelson said. “I asked a translator about five minutes later and he said that she said to me, ‘Please don’t ever forget me.’“As soon as I heard that, I lost it.”Nelson’s efforts aren’t exclusive to Haiti. He and i’mMe are also holding a toy drive through Sunday at The Grasshopper off the Green in Morristown, N.J., to benefit an orphanage in Denville.“I find inspiration in these kids,” Nelson said. “When you talk to them, you can tell there is still hope and you can see it in their eyes. They know they have a purpose and they just don’t know how to bring it to the surface. There’s greatness inside of them, but it just isn’t being ignited.”Nelson is tied for third on the Jets with 27 catches for 324 yards after being signed by New York as a free agent in October. While establishing himself as an important part of the Jets’ offense, he has also found balance between football and his passion off the field.“This experience has changed perspectives for me,” Nelson said. “I love football and I love what I do, and when I’m here, I’m here. I give it everything I have. But at the same time, football is what I do. It’s not who I am.“This organization and the kids, helping other people, that’s my life. That’s who I am.”___Online: http://www.imme.org___NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org___Follow Dennis Waszak on Twitter: http://twitter.com/DWAZ73last_img read more

TRAINER MIKE MITCHELL SUCCUMBS TO BRAIN CANCER AT AGE 66, AFFABLE CONDITIONER RANKS AMONG ALL-TIME WINNINGEST TRAINERS IN CALIFORNIA

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Apr. 15, 2015)–Trainer Mike Mitchell, an iconic and dominant figure on the Southern California racing landscape for nearly 40 years, passed away Tuesday, at his home in Monrovia following a lengthy battle with brain cancer at age 66.Born April 25, 1948 in Bakersfield and the son of a trainer, Earl Mitchell, Mike Mitchell worked for legendary trainers Farrell Jones and Willard Proctor prior to taking out his first trainer’s license in 1974. Married in 1982 to the former Denise Weaver, Mitchell is survived by his wife and their two daughters, McCall (Rounsefell) and Shea (Leparoux).Known primarily as a wizard at the claim box, Mitchell had a finely tuned ability to analyze the way races would be run and the ability to communicate pertinent pre-race information to those in his employ.“The thing about Mike that I loved about him, was he had so much faith in himself, so much confidence,” said retired Hall of Fame jockey Laffit Pincay, Jr. “He was one of my biggest supporters and we had a lot of success together. He knew his horses and every time he told me a horse was doing well, they ran that way. When I rode for Mike, he never gave me instructions and when I rode for him, I had a lot of confidence. He was a great trainer with claiming horses and with stakes horses. He was one of the best I ever rode for.”Santa Anita’s leading Winter Meet trainer in 1992-93, and again in 2007-08, he handed his stable over to his longtime assistant, Phil D’Amato on April 21, 2014 and retired due to his illness as Santa Anita’s fifth all-time leading trainer with 659 wins, behind only Bobby Frankel, Charlie Whittingham, Bob Baffert and Ron McAnally.Mitchell’s first Santa Anita stakes winner was Johnny’s Image, who won the 1978 Santa Catalina Stakes (now run as the Robert B. Lewis), and he saddled a total of 20 overall stakes winners at The Great Race Place, his final added money Santa Anita win coming with Egg Drop in the Grade II Goldikova Stakes in 2013.“Mike was a very aggressive guy when it came to where he was placing his horses,” said veteran jockey agent, Scotty McClellan, who represented several top riders during Mitchell’s career, including Darrell McHargue, Chris McCarron, Alex Solis, Corey Nakatani and Joe Talamo. “He always ran them in live spots. There were a lot of times a horse would run good and I’d be looking for a race for $40,000 (claiming), and he’s looking for a race for 25 or 32 (thousand). He did phenomenal with his claims over the years and if he said he had a runner, believe me, it was a runner.”McClellan also touched upon the kind of person Mitchell was.“As competitive as he was, Mike loved to laugh,” he said. “He just loved to laugh and hear new jokes–and play practical jokes. He was a great trainer and a great person as well–One of the best I’ve ever been around.”Mitchell, who won his first race at Bay Meadows in 1974, won 21 overall training titles in Southern California. In addition to his two Santa Anita Winter Meet titles, he won four training titles at Santa Anita’s Oak Tree Meeting; in 1983, 1995, 1996 and 2004. He also took seven overall Hollywood Park titles that included the 1982, 1985, 1993 and 1997 Spring/Summer Meets, and Hollywood Park Fall Meets in 1983, 1996 and 2011.Del Mar’s all-time leading trainer with 476 seaside wins, Mitchell won seven Del Mar titles; 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1995, 1996 and 2011. He was also leading trainer at Fairplex Park in 2008.“I haven’t seen too many guys that were ever better with a condition book than Mike,” said TVG’s Kurt Hoover. “He knew where to place his horses and when to run ’em. In addition to that, I’ve known several people that had great success with Mike as their trainer, but they all say that along with racing success, the fun they had with both Mike and Denise was just as important.“On top of all of his professional achievements is the fact that he had a great family. You could see that they all genuinely enjoyed being together. He was just an all-around good man.”Although known (and feared) as one of the top claiming trainers of all-time, Mitchell also developed a number of stakes winners, including the top sprinter Kela, who provided him with his first Grade I win, in the 2004 Bing Crosby Handicap at Del Mar.His greatest stakes success came late in his career with Irish-bred Obviously, who won five graded stakes, including the Grade I Shoemaker Mile, between August, 2012 and August, 2013. Obviously also finished third for Mitchell, behind eventual Horse of the Year Wise Dan, in the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Mile at Santa Anita.In addition to his wife and two daughters, Mitchell is survived by a twin sister, Cheryl, and brothers Earl, Jr., Guy and Casey. Funeral services are pending.

JSE pushes Africa investment

first_img5 April 2012 As appetite for investment in the continent continues to grow, the JSE is implementing a new Africa strategy, migrating the companies listed on its Africa board to its main board and diversifying the instrument range it offers to African investors. The JSE said in a statement on Monday that African companies will be allowed to list directly on its main board and AltX smaller cap board from mid-year, as Africa’s largest stock exchange moves to position itself as a more attractive proposition for African listings. Included in its new offering will depository receipts and a broader range of exchange traded funds and debt instruments. Since its launch in 2009, the JSE’s Africa board has managed to attract only two successful listings: Botswana’s Wilderness Holdings, an ecotourism company, and Trustco Group Holdings, a Namibian-based microinsurance and microfinance company. However, the JSE said, it had found that companies wanted to be ranked with their sector peers, something the Africa board did not allow.‘The Africa strategy’ There were other reasons why it felt the time was right for a strategic shift. “First, the October 2011 announcement by National Treasury that companies previously viewed as foreign listings would in future be treated as domestic makes it easier for South Africans to invest in JSE-listed African stocks – that makes capital raising by foreign companies easier,” the JSE said. Second, the JSE had developed good relations with several stock exchanges on the continent. Third, investment flows into the continent’s markets and the number of funds focused on the region were increasing as investors searched for high returns in previously unexplored emerging markets. “All of this means that there is an opportunity for the JSE to work with these exchanges and various development institutions to build capacity on the continent,” said Siobhan Cleary, director of strategy and public policy at the JSE. “It also gives the JSE the opportunity to evolve its Africa strategy. “This has meant looking critically at what issuers – companies, governments and others – from the rest of the continent are looking for, and aligning their needs with the JSE’s objectives.” Diversifying the instrument range Nathan Mintah, chairman of the JSE’s Africa advisory committee, said the evolution in the JSE’s strategy was “a step in the right direction in the quest to increase capital flows into the rest of Africa”. “Offering issuers and investors the ‘whole JSE’ market platform for access to instruments across the capital structure in equities, mezzanine, and fixed income, combined with the JSE’s liquidity, will clearly benefit all stakeholders and serve as a catalyst for product innovation in areas such as exchange traded products for the rest of Africa.” The JSE is also working at diversifying the instrument range it offers investors from the rest of the continent. The bourse currently offers four interest rate instruments from the rest of the continent, as well as an African exchange traded product, Cleary said, but would be giving increased focus to listing further debt and quasi-equity products.Depository receipts “These will also include depository receipts (DRs), which are traded like shares and offer investors the same economic, corporate and voting rights as holding underlying shares directly.” DRs enable issuers to reach investors located outside their home markets while reducing the risk of cross-border investment. They would provide a way for African companies to raise capital on the JSE without requiring a secondary listing, Cleary said. “DRs are applicable for African companies regardless of whether they have an existing listing on an African exchange or any other exchange. Freely traded in South African rands, this will allow African companies to market themselves to both South African and international investors.” Previously, the Africa board only catered for main board listings. Smaller and medium-sized companies from the rest of Africa fulfilling AltX criteria will from now on be encouraged to list. “The JSE’s existing African offering includes 12 African companies,” said Cleary. “In future, there will be no differentiation (for listing purposes) between African and non-African companies. “For equities, this will mean that we will list the companies on the main board or AltX as applicable. We will also actively market and profile the African companies that are already listed.” The JSE said it believed that its approach provided a workable solution to the sometimes complex issue of investment on the continent, while also contributing to the development of markets within their own economies.

Cercospora leaf blight and seed stain

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Many times at harvest questions arise about the causes of discolored soybeans. One symptom sometimes observed is a purple staining of seeds (see the picture at top left). This purple staining is caused by a late-season soybean fungal disease that is called Cercospora leaf blight (CLB). When plants are infected by CLB, dark lesions can be observed on leaf surfaces and leaves can exhibit a puckered, leathery appearance. In addition to infection of the leaves, pods can also become infected causing a purple staining of the seed in infected pods.Although CLB is fairly common, it usually develops too late in the season to cause significant damage or yield loss.
