No De Bruyne approach – Wolfsburg

No De Bruyne approach – Wolfsburg

first_img Pellegrini said: “We are near to the start of the Premier League so I think that the senior players will have more minutes than the last game and I think Delph will be involved.” Pellegrini was joined for pre-match media duties ahead of the International Champions Cup fixture by midfielder Yaya Toure, who was asked about his own future. Toure’s status was again thrown into doubt after more comments from his erratic agent Dimitri Seluk late last season but the player stated his commitment and has reiterated that position. The 32-year-old said: “There was too much speculation about me leaving – it’s clear that I have my contract at City and I want to see out my contract.” Former Barcelona player Toure has two years remaining on his deal at the Etihad Stadium but hopes to play on beyond that. The Ivory Coast international said: “I always try to be at my best. Sometimes it’s not easy but that’s part of the game. “Football for me is everything. I know my job well and sometimes I hear people try to know better – I don’t want to respond. “I want to do my best for the club and to try to help my team-mates. I can play until 40, I know my quality and that’s all.” Wolfsburg say they have not received an approach for Kevin De Bruyne despite strong reports linking the former Chelsea midfielder with Manchester City. “Nothing has arrived here. And neither Kevin nor his agent have told me they want to leave,” sporting director Klaus Allofs told the German media. City have been linked with De Bruyne, who was sold by Chelsea for £18million last year, throughout the summer but have not commented on the speculation. Club officials again declined to comment when asked about the latest reports. Manager Manuel Pellegrini, however, has been speaking about the future of striker Edin Dzeko, who has been linked with Roma. Dzeko, a £27million signing four years ago, did not feature in City’s pre-season outing against the Italian side in Melbourne on Tuesday and Pellegrini has indicated he could leave the club. Speaking at a press conference in Australia ahead of City’s next friendly against Real Madrid, Pellegrini said: “Edin didn’t play the last game as it’s not clear if he will continue here or not, but he is still working here with the whole squad.” Bosnia international Dzeko, 29, signed a four-year contract at City last summer but scored only six goals in an injury-hit 2014-15 campaign. New £49million signing Raheem Sterling made a goalscoring debut against Roma and another high-profile capture, Fabian Delph, is likely to make his first City appearance against Real at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday. England international Delph initially rejected a move after City activated his £8million release clause from Aston Villa but then changed his mind and signed last week. It has been claimed City have opened talks over a deal for the 24-year-old, with suggestions the club could be prepared to pay a British record £60million. But the Bundesliga club, who have previously insisted the player is not for sale, claim there has not been contact. Press Associationlast_img read more

Joseph, Berridge deal Volcanoes innings defeat

Joseph, Berridge deal Volcanoes innings defeat

first_imgGROS ISLET, St Lucia, (CMC) – Test pacer Alzarri Joseph struck a cavalier half-century and enterprising seamer Sheeno Berridge captured a devastating five-wicket haul as Leeward Islands crushed Windward Islands Volcanoes by an innings and 165 runs on the final day of their third round match in the Regional Four-Day Championship here Monday.In a rain-hit, day/night contest at the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground which appeared headed for a stalemate after the entire first day was lost to rain, Joseph turned the game on its head when he slammed an unbeaten 64 from 56 deliveries as Hurricanes, resuming on 234 for five, powered their way to 354 for eight declared.Armed with a first innings lead of 216 runs, Berridge then snatched five for 22 from 10 overs to send Volcanoes tumbling for 51 in their second innings – their second lowest total ever in the championship. Test off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall supported with two for seven from six tight overs as only 20-year-old wicketkeeper/batsman Emmanuel Stewart, with 11, managed to reach double figures.The victory broke a run of two defeats for Hurricanes while Volcanoes tasted defeat for the for the first time this season.Not many envisaged the outcome at the start of the day, especially after left-hander Amir Jangoo fell to the first delivery of the evening without adding to his overnight 51 and with Hurricanes yet to add to their tally.Entered Joseph, already with a five-wicket haul in the first innings, to transform the game, belting half-dozen fours and three sixes while adding 49 for the seventh wicket with Jaison Peters who converted his overnight 39 into 57 – his second first class hundred.Peters faced 116 balls and counted four fours in just over 2-¼ hours before he was bowled by fast bowler Sherman Lewis who claimed two of the three wickets to fall to finish with three for 80.Joseph then combined with Cornwall, whose 37 came from 24 balls and contained two fours and three sixes, to post another another 58 for the eighth wicket and push the Hurricanes lead beyond the 200-run mark.Needing to simply bat out the day to save the game, Volcanoes’ second innings lasted a mere 33 overs as Berridge claimed four of the first five wickets to fall, with just 28 runs on the board.The best stand of the innings was 14 for the fifth wicket between Stewart and Montcin Hodge (9) but once Berridge bowled Stewart, the last five wickets tumbled for 15 runs.Berridge finished with match figures of nine for 61 while Joseph picked up Man-of-the-Match honours for his all-round display.last_img read more

The man Broad and Anderson found ‘impossible’ to bowl to

The man Broad and Anderson found ‘impossible’ to bowl to

first_img…England seam duo reflect on their battles against former South African opener Graeme SmithPROLIFIC England pace pair Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad say they found former South African skipper Graeme Smith to be one of the toughest batsmen to bowl to in their careers.Smith enjoyed great success in his 21 Tests against England, scoring seven hundreds and averaging almost 57, with the high point being his consecutive double centuries against them in 2003.While Broad didn’t play in that 2003 campaign, he says he found Smith “an absolute nightmare” to bowl to because of the left-hander’s ability to score freely through the leg side.Broad enjoyed great success against another left-handed opener, Australia’s David Warner, during last year’s Ashes campaign when bowling around the wicket and says he laments not being skilled enough early in his career to try that approach against Smith.“Graeme Smith, I found an absolute nightmare,” Broad said in an Instagram Live video with Anderson.I wish I could have bowled at him having worked on my around the wicket stuff and try and draw him to drive through extra cover.“But for me just over the wicket trying to swing it into the stumps, hopeless.”South Africa’s 2003 tour of England was arguably Smith’s greatest performance as a Test player, highlighted by his scores of 277 and 259 at Edgbaston and Lord’s respectively to start the series.Anderson played in that series as a 20-year-old Test rookie and concedes he also had no idea how to quell Smith’s prolific scoring through the leg side.“I had exactly the same problem,” he said.“When I first started, my first series against him was 2003 and all I could do then was swing the ball back in. I didn’t have an out-swinger to a left-hander and I couldn’t wobble the ball across him.“So I was just feeding his strength. I just go so annoyed.“And when you thought ‘alright, I’ll start the ball a bit wider outside off stump’, and he still got it through the leg-side.“He got two double hundreds in that series in 2003. He was just impossible to bowl to. I hated it.”While Anderson did get the better of Smith later in his career, dismissing the opener six times in 17 Tests, Broad got the left-hander out only once in 10 matches.(Cricket Network)last_img read more

Syracuse women’s basketball opponent preview: What to know about Michigan State

Syracuse women’s basketball opponent preview: What to know about Michigan State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 30, 2016 at 2:04 am Contact Matt: mjfel100@syr.edu A week after Syracuse lost three of four games and drop to No. 20 from No. 11 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, Syracuse (4-3) will host unranked Michigan State (6-1) in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge Wednesday at 7 p.m.Here’s what you need to know about the matchup.All-time series: Michigan State leads, 1-0Last time they played: In the Florida Sunshine Classic, MSU guard Aerial Powers dropped a career-high 32 points and 17 rebounds in No. 18 MSU’s 89-76 victory over the No. 19 Orange. The Spartans outscored SU by 13 in the second half, but SU almost brought it back after two Cornelia Fondren free throws put the Orange within six with just over two minutes to play. But from there, the Spartans made 11 of 12 free throws, sealing the game.The Spartans report: MSU is 6-1 on the season, the Spartans’ best start in two years. Guard Tori Jankoska ranks second in the Big Ten in scoring, and is one of only three players in the conference averaging more than 20. This will be the Orange’s second matchup in the past week against a Big Ten leading scorer, after facing Ohio State’s Kelsey Mitchell on Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHow Syracuse beats Michigan State: The Orange needs to shut down Jankoska and limit her looks at the basket. With an extended zone, the Orange will be able to cut down on her 3-point opportunities, but Briana Day and SU’s other rotating centers will have to stay at home and step up when the zone extends far.SU will also have to limit its turnovers, and make sure it can stick with the Spartans’ 3-point shooters. Hillsman preaches that if his team can stick with the opponents’ shooters and make a 3-pointer for every 3 the other team makes, his team can hang around. As long as the Orange is able to punch back and not get down by too much, it can keep the game close and give itself the chance to chuck up some shots and stretch the lead.Stat to know: 6.75 — The Orange has been outscored by an average of 6.75 points in its past four games, three of which it lost. SU had blown out each of its first three opponents by at least 18 points each.Player to watch: Tori Jankoska, guard, No. 1Jankoska was an All-Big Ten second team selection last year. She has 222 career 3-pointers to spearhead the Spartans’ attack, and is just 73 3-pointers away from breaking the MSU all-time record. The 5-foot-8 senior is averaging 21.9 points per game thus far.

Kia Nurse’s historic night for UConn ends Syracuse’s season, 94-64, in NCAA Tournament second round

Kia Nurse’s historic night for UConn ends Syracuse’s season, 94-64, in NCAA Tournament second round

first_img Published on March 20, 2017 at 10:47 pm Contact Tomer: tdlanger@syr.edu | @tomer_langer STORRS, Conn. — Kia Nurse put her head down, shook it and ran back down the court to play defense. A wry smile crept across her face as she set up on the other side of the court after knocking down her seventh 3-pointer of the first half.As head coach Geno Auriemma said after the game, the 6-foot junior had come to Connecticut to be a spot-up shooter. She found success too, hitting at a 45.5-percent clip on the year. She had two games earlier this season where she shot well and nailed a then-career-high six 3s, including in Saturday’s first-round matchup against Albany.None of that compared to what happened on Monday night. In No. 1 seed UConn’s (34-0, 16-0 American Athletic) 94-64 thumping over No. 8 seed Syracuse (22-11, 11-5 Atlantic Coast), Nurse had the shooting performance of her life. She drilled eight first-half 3s and tacked on a ninth in the second half — banking in one from the corner — to tie the all-time record for 3s made in an NCAA Tournament game.“Usually when Kia hits the side of the backboard in practice it goes out of bounds,” Auriemma quipped. “This time it happened to go in, so you knew it was a big night for us.”Syracuse’s defense got shredded for most of the game. But in the beginning, SU compounded those issues by struggling to make shots, hitting just five field goals. UConn consistently pushed through easily and scored early. The four starters who scored in the game each had at least one basket in the first quarter. Three of those were 3s from Nurse, but it didn’t seem anything out of the ordinary flow of UConn’s game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the ball kept finding her in the second quarter, as she was open behind the arc. After SU made more baskets, it had a bit longer to set up. But once the press got broken Syracuse scrambled to find players in the halfcourt, and Nurse kept ending up with open looks behind the arc.Syracuse head coach Quentin Hillsman said that UConn inverted its offensive sets, which confused the SU defense and resulted in Nurse getting all those looks. Normally, Hillsman said, Nurse is the one bringing the ball up the court. UConn switched things around, camping Nurse out on the 3-point line. SU’s defense collapsed when the ball reached the high post and as that happened, Nurse slid up or down to the open spot and buried shot after shot.“We as a staff and myself particularly,” Hillsman said, “gotta do a better job of making sure that our players can adjust if they invert their personnel.”Nurse’s five 3s in the second quarter nearly matched SU’s 18 points in the frame and it overshadowed any positives the Orange could try and take from the game. The Gampel Pavilion crowd noisily anticipated every touch she had. After her last 3 of the quarter, the fans gave her a standing ovation even as play was still going on.Nurse’s celebrations after every made long ball grew as the half progressed. Small nods turned into large fist pumps toward whichever teammate had assisted on the shot. Nurse became seemingly confident with the shots she took and surprised at how frequently they went in. It was a culmination of extra shooting that Nurse did in the time leading up to the start of the Tournament.“A little bit of both, maybe,” she said. “… I felt like this week, if I could get in the gym and see a couple go through the net, just shoot them confidently and if you’re open, knock them in.”Nurse said that playing against a team that claims to have “America’s best backcourt” helped her play with a chip on a shoulder. At one point in the first half, she had scored more than Syracuse’s entire team.Hillsman and SU did manage to find and limit Nurse in UConn’s inverted offense, limiting her to just three points in the second half. But all the damage had already been done.“The performance, Kia’s, it just speaks for itself,” Auriemma said. “Kids dream about, I wanna have a game like that.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Trojans come up short against Colorado

Trojans come up short against Colorado

first_imgThe USC men’s basketball team began its last regular season road trip Thursday with a 70-66 loss to No. 18 Colorado in Boulder, Colo. The loss prevented USC from avenging its 21-point Feb. 1 defeat to the Buffaloes, dropping the Trojans’ conference record to 8-6.  The loss mirrored the last minute effort that came up short against No. 24 Arizona nearly two weeks ago during an 85-80 loss. For a team on the bubble of making the NCAA Tournament, Thursday’s loss dealt a critical blow to the Trojans’ hopes of making the Big Dance. The game came down to the last minute and 20 seconds when USC cut Colorado’s lead to 3. Unfortunately for the Trojans, they couldn’t produce off their next possession. Senior guard Daniel Utomi traveled while about to take a 3-pointer during the game’s final seconds, giving the Buffaloes the ball and the game. Colorado hit a free throw during its last possession and escaped with the 4-point win.  Senior guard Jonah Mathews offered an admirable performance Thursday, shooting 63.6 % and scoring 17 points. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) From the start of the second half, it was clear Colorado had made the necessary adjustments and was ready to perform on offense. In the first three minutes of the half, the Buffaloes scored 12 points without missing a shot, overcoming the first half deficit and establishing a lead USC would never take back.  Much of Colorado’s comeback was predicated on exceptional ball movement. This left USC’s man-to-man defense scrambling and allowed for open looks both beyond the arc and in the paint against USC’s top defenders in freshman forward Onyeka Okongwu and senior forward Nick Rakocevic. Colorado finished the game with 16 assists in comparison to USC’s nine. USC’s offense still dominated in the paint and shot over 50% in the second half, but this couldn’t make up for Colorado’s lethal 3-point shooting. The Buffaloes dwarfed the Trojans with 24 points from beyond the arc compared to just 6 from USC. Okongwu’s offensive production kept USC hanging around. The star freshman was coming off of two missed games due to a concussion but didn’t stray much from his season scoring average by putting up 21 points.  Unlike Okongwu, USC’s bench was not up to the challenge Thursday. The Trojans’ subs shot 2-of-17 from the field. The only bench player to come off the bench and score was sophomore guard Elijah Weaver, who chipped in with 4 points.  Colorado shot 23% from the field through the game’s first 10 minutes. This improved to 34.5% by the half while USC’s offense began to lose its rhythm, leading to frantic shots and turnovers that reduced its 14-point lead to just 3 by halftime. “We’re happy to have [Okongwu] back,” head coach Andy Enfield said. “I thought he played a really good game tonight. Unfortunately, when it’s crunch time, we need all five guys to not make mental mistakes.” Early in the game, the Trojans looked like they could limit the Buffaloes’ offense, forcing seven turnovers in the first 10 minutes and establishing a 14-point advantage. Colorado fell into a five minute scoring drought but was revived by junior guard Tyler Bey. Bey’s drives to the rim repeatedly drew fouls and chipped away at USC’s lead.  The Trojans travel to Salt Lake City to face the Utah Utes Sunday. Tip-off is at 3 p.m.last_img read more

Transfer: Premier League Clubs Net January Profit

Transfer: Premier League Clubs Net January Profit

first_imgPremier League clubs have recorded a transfer window profit for the first time – despite spending reaching a six-year January high of £215m.Southampton and Burnley made late deadline-day deals, while Odion Ighalo moved from Watford to China for £20m.Saints paid about £14m for Napoli’s Manolo Gabbiadini, and the Clarets signed Robbie Brady for up to £13mHowever, top-flight sides brought in £40m more than they paid out, according to finance analysts Deloitte. Premier League teams have spent a record £1.38bn on transfers in the 2016-17 season, after a summer outlay of £1.165bn.Spending in January 2017 is the second highest – behind the record mark of £225m six years ago – and dwarfs the £35m spent in the first January transfer window in 2003.While the window is now closed for the major European leagues, there could still be departures as big-spending China has an official deadline of February 28.Deadline-day sales were led by Nigeria striker Ighalo, 27, moving to Chinese Super League club Changchun Yatai.Burnley were one of the busier sides, recruiting 25-year-old Republic of Ireland international Brady from Norwich for a club-record fee having earlier snapped up another midfielder, Ashley Westwood, from Aston Villa.Southampton bolstered their attacking options by bringing in Gabbiadini, 25, while Crystal Palace secured Liverpool centre-back Mamadou Sakho on loan and signed Serbia midfielder Luka Milivojevic from Greek side Olympiakos.Swansea City signed Aston Villa forward Jordan Ayew in a swap deal that saw Wales defender Neil Taylor go the other way.Several mooted moves did not go through on a relatively low-key day, with Celtic keeper Craig Gordon and striker Moussa Dembele staying with the Scottish champions despite reported interest from Chelsea.Sunderland, thwarted in their attempts to sign forward Leonardo Ulloa from Premier League champions Leicester City, had a bid of about £12m rejected by Southampton for forward Jay Rodriguez.Championship clubs spent a record £40m on deadline day, led by Aston Villa signing forward Scott Hogan from Brentford for a fee that could reach £12m.Wigan sold winger Yanic Wildschut to Norwich for £7m, but they ended the day with eight new players.Sheffield Wednesday have to wait until Wednesday to see if their £9.5m move for Middlesbrough striker Jordan Rhodes had gone through in time.Midfielder Ravel Morrison returned to QPR on a late loan deal from Italian side Lazio, and highly rated West Ham defender Reece Oxford, 18, moved to Reading on loan for the rest of the season.Striker Matty Taylor caused a stir by leaving Bristol Rovers, where he has scored 19 times this season, for local rivals Bristol City – the first time a player has done so since 1987.Championship side City wasted no time in winding up their League One foes, with manager Lee Johnson saying: “It’ll be a big step up in standard for him.”Meanwhile, Neil Danns’ tour of the clubs of the north west beginning with a B saw him tick off Blackpool. The midfielder’s loan deal from Bury follows spells at Bolton and Blackburn. He has also squeezed in Birmingham City and Bristol City along the way.Everton were the Premier League club to spend the most on a single player, paying Manchester United £22m for France midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin.However, the biggest fee was the £60m paid to Chelsea by Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG for Brazil attacking midfielder Oscar.Also departing the Premier League was Dimitri Payet – with West Ham accusing the France forward of lacking “commitment and respect” as he rejoined Marseille for £25m.The top six sides did not shell out – the only new purchase among the leading sides being Arsenal’s surprise signing of left-back Cohen Bramall from non-league Hednesford Town for £40,000. He had just been made redundant from his job in a car factory before a trial with the Gunners.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
