He returned to practice for the first time Wednesday and intends to wear the mask until games start.“I feel really good,” Brogdon said. “My conditioning is not where I want it to be, of course. It’s not NBA shape. But I’ve heard people say I look more in shape than they thought I would. I will definitely be in shape by the time games start.”Coach Nate McMillan said the decision is entirely up to Brogdon.“He doesn’t have to do that,” McMillan said. “But we haven’t really thought about it (spreading) because of all the testing we have go through.”Brogdon also is coming back from a torn quad muscle in his thigh he suffered March 4.

EPL: Chelsea Back Top, United Sinks Spurs

first_imgThe Gunners’ north London rivals Spurs lost ground after going down to a 1-0 defeat at Manchester United. Spurs remain in fifth on 27 points, 10 adrift of Chelsea.United, for whom Henrikh Mkhitaryan opened his account in the Premier League before going off on a stretcher in the second-half with what appeared a left ankle injury, are 13 points shy of the leaders but only six off the Champions League spots.United manager Jose Mourinho, who said he didn’t think the injury to Mkhitaryan was serious and that the player risked missing just two weeks, hailed the three points haul as “magic”.West Brom made it difficult for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge until Costa seized on the ball 14 minutes from time, brushed off the attention of Gareth McAuley and rifled the ball past Ben Foster into the top far corner.Chelsea manager Antonio Conte feted his players for winning nine in a row — scoring 23 and conceding just two goals — in a “very tough league”.“I’m very happy. We faced a tough, physical team. They’re difficult to break down and we showed great patience to find the right solution,” said the 47-year-old Italian.“It wasn’t easy but my players showed great character and motivation to win.“We are working very well. When you don’t find the goal, it becomes more difficult but we were very good to find in the right moment to do it.”The United and Spurs match was of a far better quality with the hosts going close through Paul Pogba, who hit the post and also forced Spurs’ French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris into a superb save in the second-half.The visitors could have gone home with a share of the points but for a woeful misdirected header from unmarked Kenyan midfield enforcer Victor Wanyama.“Our heart was in our hands but the players gave us everything. These three points are magic because it’s against a very good team so it means more for us,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.In a match involving two struggling teams, Southampton ended a bad week with a much-needed win, beating Middlesbrough 1-0.Record signing Sofiane Boufal secured the three points with a delightful effort from the edge of the area.Victory — only Southampton’s second in seven matches — moves Saints eight points clear of the relegation places while ‘Boro remain mired in the battle for survival, just three points better off than third from bottom West Ham.RESULTSChelsea 1-0 West BromMan Utd 1-0 TottenhamS’thampton 1-0 M’broughLiverpool 2-2 West Ham Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A superb Diego Costa strike stretched Chelsea’s winning run to nine matches, equalling their streak from 2007, after they overcame West Brom 1-0 yesterday in the Premier League.Costa’s 12th goal of the season sees the Blues maintain their three-point advantage over Arsenal who briefly went top on goal difference after beating Stoke 3-1 on Saturday.last_img read more

Croatia Break Russian Hearts, Win Thrilling Q/Final on Penalties

first_imgDemola OjoRussia’s fairy-tale run to the quarter finals of the 2018 World Cup was ended in dramatic fashion by Croatia who prevailed on penalties for a second consecutive time at this competition.After 120 minutes of drama, suspense, and tension both teams were locked 2-2 with the lottery of penalties the only way to separate them. Both Russia and Croatia headed into this match in similar fashion, earning penalty kick victories after 1-1 draws against Spain and Denmark respectively. And despite Croatia enjoying most of the possession, they struggled to subdue a Russia side full of energy and commitment.However, Croatia reached the World Cup semi-finals for the second time in their history with Ivan Rakitic again the hero in a 4-3 penalty shoot-out victory.Having slotted home the winning kick against Denmark in the last 16, Rakitic held his nerve to convert from the spot, with Mario Fernandes going from hero to villain by missing from 12 yards after his 115th-minute header had made it 2-2 deep into extra time.After ending the home side’s incredible run, Zlatko Dalic’s side will aim to at least go one better than the famous 1998 vintage, who finished third in France, when they meet England at the Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday.Denis Cheryshev got Russia off to a brilliant start by marking his return to the starting line-up with yet another contender for goal of the tournament after his stunning efforts against Saudi Arabia and Egypt in the group stage, but Andrej Kramaric equalised just eight minutes later.Domagoj Vida headed Luka Modric’s corner home 10 minutes into the first extra period, only for Fernandes, the Brazil-born defender who was only granted Russia citizenship by president Vladimir Putin two years ago, to keep Russia’s hopes alive in a dramatic finish.However, it was not to be for the resilient hosts, with goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saving Fedor Smolov’s penalty and Fernandes firing wide before Rakitic kept his composure to send Croatia through.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

FIFA Shortlist Ahmed Musa’s Goal Among the Best at Russia 2018

first_imgThe speedy and mercurial Musa, who started the match as against bench role in the opening match against Croatia, has a great opportunity to put himself in the record books if his goal is eventually picked as the best.The goal contending to be the best for Russia 2018 was scored in the 75thminute. It was a fine individual effort as the Vice captain of Super Eagles outpaced Iceland’s Kari Arnason before rounding Goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson who sprawled helplessly on the turf to double Nigeria’s lead in the classic encounter and was eventually voted as the ‘Man of the Match’ and put the country back in contention to qualify from the group which Nigeria later relinquish to Argentina in the last group D match at Saint Petersburg.Musa got himself composed before firing into the net. It’ was his fourth goal in two World Cup matches having achieved a brace against Argentina at Brazil 2014 thus making him the second African player to score two World Cup braces, after Roger Milla in 1990.It is even still a big surprise that his first goal against Iceland did not make the cut. It was another superb goal good enough for exhibition on television.Musa controlled Victor Moses’ cross with one touch, setting himself up for an unstoppable half-volley with his second. The huge crowd at the Volgograd Arena rose in salute for the master piece of a goal.Now, Musa’s shortlisted goal is contesting with 17 others scored by notable players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Germany’s Toni Kroos among others.The poll presented by Hyundai will be open for a week till Monday. Nigeria with its huge population can help Musa achieve success by voting for his goal which is listed ninth among the 18.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Femi SolajaSuper Eagles pacy winger, Ahmed Musa, is in contention for the ‘best goal’ of the World Cup finals which was rounded up last Sunday in Moscow.With FIFA’s launch of a poll yesterday to pick the best of the 169 goals scored at the Russia 2018 World Cup, Ahmed Musa’s classy goal, the second against Iceland at Volgograd has been shortlisted among the tournament’s best 18 goals.last_img read more

Former soccer coach Laura Janke pleads guilty in college admissions bribery case

first_imgIn addition to Janke, several USC parents involved in the college admissions scheme also pleaded guilty. Los Angeles businessman Devin Sloane pleaded guilty Monday to paying $250,000 in bribes to admit his son to USC as a water polo player, despite the fact that his son never played the sport. Davina and Bruce Isackson, the president of a real estate firm in the Bay Area, pleaded guilty last month to getting their daughters into UCLA and USC through bribes. Janke conspired with college admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer, the scheme’s mastermind, who has pleaded guilty to four felonies. While working at USC from 2007 to 2014, Janke created false awards for prospective students’ admission profiles and altered images to make the students appear as athletes. Janke agreed to cooperate with the federal investigation into the scandal in April, the Daily Trojan reported. Former USC women’s assistant soccer coach Laura Janke pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy charge Tuesday. Janke created fake athletic profiles to admit the students of wealthy parents who bribed her and other University officials as part of the college admissions bribery scheme. Sloane and the Isacksons are among 14 parents who pleaded guilty to their involvement in the college admissions bribery scheme, code-named “Operation Varsity Blues” by the FBI. center_img In addition to pleading guilty, Janke entered into a formal cooperation agreement April 21, in hopes of receiving a more lenient sentence by providing information which could help prosecutors’ investigations, according to the Los Angeles Times. Janke’s plea agreement includes a sentence for up to approximately three years in prison, according to the Los Angeles Times. Her sentence could be reduced if the information she provides prosecutors helps the investigation. Janke will be sentenced Oct. 17.last_img read more

No. 14 Syracuse blows lead in final 5 minutes in 3-2 loss to No. 16 Stanford

first_img Published on October 5, 2019 at 8:43 pm Contact Danny: dremerma@syr.edu | @DannyEmerman With less than five minutes remaining, the Orange clung to a 2-1 lead thanks to goals from juniors Claire Cooke and Sarah Luby. SU’s sixth win in its last seven games was within reach. But the Cardinal had other plans. Stanford’s Frances Carstens’ goal in free play evened the score at 2-2, and Emma Alderton’s steal-and-score put Stanford on top. On Saturday night in Berkeley, California, No. 14 Syracuse (8-3, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) failed to hold its lead to No. 16 Stanford (7-5, 1-0 America East) in a 3-2 loss.In the first quarter, Syracuse out-shot Stanford 4-0 and had three penalty corner opportunities, but couldn’t find the back of the net. It was only a matter of time before SU scored.Seven minutes into the second quarter, Cooke put the Orange on top, 1-0, with her second goal of the season. Stanford, though had a response. Four minutes later, Stanford junior Corinne Zanolli set up Lynn Vanderstichele for an equalizer. Zanolli, who broke the Stanford single-season record with 26 goals last season, recorded five shots and that assist.In the third quarter, Luby put SU back on top. The Orange maintained a 2-1 lead for the next 20 minutes, until Alderton and Carstens led Stanford’s late comeback.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis week, Syracuse head coach Ange Bradley cited the back line as an area that needs improvement, particularly after Duke recorded 17 more shots than SU on Sept. 27. Saturday’s loss added questions about SU’s defense, as Stanford out-shot Syracuse by five in the fourth quarter.Syracuse’s defense wasn’t the only problem on Saturday. In total, SU was out-shot 11-9 and failed to convert on three penalty corner chances. Syracuse freshman Charlotte de Vries, who averages 1.33 goals per game (second in the ACC), was held scoreless and limited to one shot one day after she tallied a hat trick against California.With the 3-2 loss, Syracuse has now won five of its last seven games. In that stretch, SU beat No. 2 Duke, then-No. 14 Saint Joseph’s, but lost to No. 5 Virginia and, now, Stanford. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
