How Syracuse pressed Virginia out of its own game to advance to the Final Four

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ CHICAGO – The style of offense Virginia predicated its dominance on, the kind that dismantled, dissected and chewed apart every piece of the zone for over 30 minutes, was fading. And fading fast.The Cavaliers built a 16-point lead that seemed insurmountable. A lead sure to shatter Syracuse’s glass slipper with Virginia’s methodical execution of threading passes and slipping cuts through a zone whose cracks were stretched open wider than in any of the Orange’s prior three games.So with under 10 minutes remaining in the second half and SU trailing by double digits, its Cinderella run on the brink, Syracuse started to press. It had to. Against a team who is arguably the best in the country at doing what SU was trying to force it not to.“We weren’t going to cut a 15-point lead against Virginia down by playing half court,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “The best we could hope for is lose the game by seven, six or seven, if we play well…if we play well.”One of the first times Syracuse picked up full court, Virginia easily broke the press for a seamless layup, proving its code wouldn’t crack like the defense Syracuse predicates its own success on did. But slowly, the Orange chipped away. With each steal, each forced shot, each sped-up possession, the Cavaliers were inched out of their method of dominance and into a defensive mode. Not defense like the stringent kind that ranked second-best in the country this season, but a defense that was slowly crumbling at the hands of a raging Syracuse offense that threatened to make a comeback once unimaginable.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen London Perrantes missed a layup in transition with just less than six minutes left and Malachi Richardson converted an acrobatic layup at the other end, Syracuse took a 59-58 lead less than three minutes after it trailed by double digits. Now it was Syracuse dictating the pace and Virginia on its heels, a stark contrast that defied the logic of everything in the game up to that point. The 10th-seeded Orange (23-13, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) held onto that lead and somehow, some way, flipped the game on its head to pull off a stunning 68-62 upset of top-seeded Virginia (29-8, 13-5) and advance to the Final Four.“They’re a tough team to press…good guards and old experienced guards,” Trevor Cooney said. “It just worked for us and some things just fall into place.”Perrantes, a 48-percent 3-point shooter coming into Sunday, hit five 3-pointers in the first half and dictated a game separated by 14 at the break. He’s a junior. Malcolm Brogdon, one of four finalists for the 2016 Naismith Award given to the country’s best player, began the second half receiving passes at the foul line and orchestrating an offense that had an answer for any rotation, trap or pressure Syracuse put on. He’s a senior.The two pioneering Virginia along a seemingly clear path to the Final Four now had a challenge that, on the surface, was elementary. Especially after one Syracuse stop was quickly followed with a transition layup, the Cavaliers affirmed its wherewithal to break Syracuse’s last resort that allowed it to barely escape against Gonzaga.But a 2-on-1 fastbreak was nullified when Anthony Gill stutter-stepped and was called for traveling. Richardson finished at the other end to cut the lead to nine. The emotional turn of the game came when Virginia tried to beat the press over the top but Richardson intercepted the arching ball before throwing it off an opponent, diving over the scorer’s table and earning SU a possession, much like many down the stretch, that granted it just another breath.“The inbounds pass was a little too far for him and I knew I could get to it but I was probably going to end up going out of bounds,” Richardson said. “I knew once I threw it back at him I wanted to get out of the way of it. I think I did fall into a monitor. I just wanted to make sure it didn’t hit me once I threw it off him.”It seemed buried in the tale of the freshman who scored 21 second-half points and shouldered the offensive tirade for Syracuse. But most of his second-half outburst was jumpstarted by an SU defense that made plays far less spectacular than Richardson’s circus act near midcourt.Sometimes, Syracuse didn’t force turnovers. Others, the Orange didn’t heavily contest a Virginia shot. A formula that, on paper, would be destined for failure on any night against a Cavaliers team that rarely leaves openings unexploited. But not on this night, not when Syracuse refused to fade.“A few times, even though we didn’t get turnovers, we forced early shots, we did a pretty good job in transition at contesting vertically,” assistant coach Gerry McNamara said. “It just changed the pace of the game.”That pace, the one that ended Virginia’s season and kept Syracuse’s alive, only slowed when SU inbounded the ball with two seconds left, finally able to walk out the waning seconds of a game it wasn’t supposed to win.Then the pace vastly changed for one last time, even with nothing left on the clock. This time, it was Syracuse’s bench dictating it as the players charged onto the court, ones that had been slouched until the start of an improbable run that added one more chapter to an improbable season.

Donald Sterling says no to L.A. Clippers sale, will sue NBA for $1 billion

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The lawsuit alleges the league violated his constitutional rights by relying on information from an “illegal” recording that publicized racist remarks he made to a girlfriend. It also said the league committed a breach of contract by fining Sterling $2.5 million and that it violated antitrust laws by trying to force a sale.“I have decided that I must fight to protect my rights,” Donald Sterling said. “While my position may not be popular, I believe that my rights to privacy and the preservation of my rights to due process should not be trampled. I love the team and have dedicated 33 years of my life to the organization. I intend to fight to keep the team.”Donald Sterling had agreed to ink the deal and drop the suit last week assuming “all their differences had been resolved,” his attorneys said. But individuals close to the negotiations who weren’t authorized to speak publicly said he decided to not sign the papers after learning the NBA won’t revoke its lifetime ban and fine.“There was never a discussion involving the NBA in which we would modify Mr. Sterling’s penalty in any way whatsoever. Any suggestion otherwise is complete fabrication,” NBA spokesman Mike Bass said.Shelly Sterling and her attorney Pierce O’Donnell declined to comment through representatives. Shelly Sterling utilized her authority as sole trustee of The Sterling Family Trust, which owns the Clippers, to take bids for the team and ultimately negotiate a deal with Ballmer. The deal would be record-breaking if approved by the NBA’s owners.An individual familiar with the negotiations who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly said Monday that there were two options for Donald Sterling — to either sign or go to court. But even if he wins in court, he’s ultimately winning a judgment against himself because his wife Shelly Sterling has agreed to indemnify the NBA against all lawsuits, including by her husband, the individual said.Donald Sterling’s comments to V. Stiviano included telling her to not bring black people to Clippers games, specifically mentioning Hall of Famer Magic Johnson. They resulted in a storm of outrage from the public and players and even prompted President Barack Obama to comment on what he called Sterling’s “incredibly offensive racist statements.”Donald Sterling said in his statement that he was “extremely sorry for the hurtful statements” he made privately but said them out of anger and jealousy and didn’t intend for them to be public.NBA Commissioner Adam Silver ultimately decided to ban Donald Sterling for life, fine him millions, and began efforts to force Sterling to sell the team. Those efforts ended with Shelly Sterling’s deal with Ballmer.If this deal ultimately goes through, its terms allow Shelly Sterling to remain close to the organization by allowing for up to 10 percent of the team — or $200 million — to be spun off into a charitable foundation that she would essentially run.Shelly Sterling and Ballmer would be co-chairs of the foundation, which would target underprivileged families, battered women, minorities and inner city youths.Under the deal Shelly Sterling would also get the title of “owner emeritus” and be entitled to continuing perks such as floor seats, additional seats at games and parking.One of the individuals said the deal also includes conditions that allow Ballmer to buy back the 10 percent portion of the team for a pre-designated price upon Shelly Sterling’s death.___AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney contributed to this report.center_img LOS ANGELES >> Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has pulled his support from a deal to sell the team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and will pursue his $1 billion federal lawsuit against the NBA, his attorney said Monday.“We have been instructed to prosecute the lawsuit,” said attorney Maxwell Blecher. He said co-owner Donald Sterling would not be signing off on the deal to sell.Donald Sterling issued a one-page statement dated Monday titled “The Team is not for Sale” and said that “from the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers.”The $2 billion sale was negotiated by his wife Shelly Sterling after Donald Sterling’s racist remarks to a girlfriend were publicized and the NBA moved to oust him as owner.last_img read more

The landscaping of the Roundabout is a work in progress.Putting up an undecorated Christmas tree doesn’t really constitute landscaping the roundabout. But White said it’s a start to recognize that this is something that can lead to a beautification project in the community so many want to see.The tree is to be decorated White promised on Wednesday. There is water and electricity available at the location.  But she hopes it can be decorated soon.The tree was donated by Mill Creek Lumber & Supply and it was erected sometime last week.The plan is to put up lights, nothing elaborate, she said.“This really is a joint effort of the chamber and the city,” White said.The WACC,  and the city public work departments made this tree possible, White said. Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

He remains at the club as assistant coach and is also in charge of the youth programme. Patrick returned to Waterhouse as interim coach of the Red Stripe Premier League outfit following the resignation of Calvert Fitzgerald, who started the season in charge.
