Press Association Wales international Boaz Myhill, who returned to training this week after a wrist injury, is likely to step in for Foster. The Baggies can also call on Luke Daniels, who made his first-team debut when he replaced Foster at Everton. Clarke added: “I’ve got two other very good goalkeepers to choose from. “Boaz did well when he deputised for Ben last season and Luke showed on Saturday he is a more than capable goalkeeper.” Foster, 30, who had retired from international football in 2011, returned to play for England against the Republic of Ireland in May. Foster, who limped off in the 77th minute of the 0-0 draw at Everton on Saturday, will undergo surgery in the next few days. West Brom boss Steve Clarke told the club’s website: “There’s no hiding the fact this is disappointing news as Ben is a key player for us. He was excellent on Saturday before his injury forced him off.” West Brom’s England goalkeeper Ben Foster will be sidelined for up to 12 weeks after a scan showed he has suffered a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot.

CMC – WHILE the West Indies won’t be underestimating South Africa in their World Cup encounter on Monday, assistant coach Roddy Estwick says the regional side is confident it can come out victorious.The two sides will meet in a crucial matchup, with South Africa having lost their first three games, while the Windies are coming off a heartbreaking loss to Australia.While Estwick believes the Proteas will come out firing in a “must win” game for them, he is still backing his side to pick up the valuable two points.“We are obviously confident, but we have to respect South Africa as well. They are a good side. They have lost three games. We know they have got world-class players, so we can’t underestimate their ability and we have to go out and play hard and smart cricket and stick to our game plans.“We have to target 100 overs. At the end of the 100 overs, we have got to make sure that we are on the winning side. We just can’t single out one part of the game. Once you do that and that part of the game has any resistance, then your game plan falls down. We have a plan for 100 overs and we have to go and execute,” Estwick maintained.“There are areas that we can still improve. We are looking to do better and we can still improve. We can cut down the extras in one or two areas. We have missed a few chances as well, so these are areas we can back up on. We are more focused on ourselves and if we can execute our skills well, then it will take care of the process.”The assistant coach said the Windies’ bowling unit had been impressive thus far.He said the fact the Windies had dismissed their opponents for less than 300 in both games in what has been a high scoring tournament, showed their quality.“Before the start of the tournament, everybody was saying that teams are going to make 360, 380, some teams will make 400, some teams will make 500. We bowled both teams out for under 300 runs, so we are very happy with the way the bowlers have executed (their plans).What we must do is play the one percenters a bit better and I’m sure if we did that in the last game, we would have won the game. It’s nothing to do with the bowlers. We are all in it together. We are not going to single out the bowlers and say the bowlers did a poor job, or the batsmen did a poor job, it is a team. If you are looking for excuses in the cricket game, you can find it wherever you look,” Estwick maintained.Estwick said while both Andre Russell and Chris Gayle had picked up “some nicks” they would both be available for Monday’s game.SQUADS:WEST INDIES – Jason Holder (captain), Fabian Allen, Carlos Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Nicholas Pooran, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Oshane Thomas.SOUTH AFRICA – Faf du Plessis (captain), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi.
A WELL-PACED half-century from opener Parmesh Parsatam and an equally responsible 37 from his partner Navindra Persaud guided Imam Bacchus Cricket Club to a comfortable eight-wicket win over the NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team when the NAMILCO 50th Anniversary Sports programme, Essequibo leg, came off last Sunday at the Imam Bacchus ground, Columbia, in the Cinderella County of Essequibo.A colourful crowd including well over 50 NAMILCO staff members, host Sam Baksh of the famous Imam Bacchus & Sons – host of the day’s proceedings – along with NAMILCO’s Fitzroy McLeod (Finance Director) and Atomaram Lakeram (Personal Assistant to Managing Director Bert Sukhai), all soaked up an absorbing day of action in very sunny conditions.The programme, which had been pushed back for a few weeks owing to the prolonged rainy season, was well received by the participants and dozens of spectators.After winning the toss and deciding to take first strike, NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team started well, but were kept in check by some steady bowling from the home team. Opener Travis Persaud looked the part in his innings of 38 off 26 balls decorated with eight (8) fours, timing the ball well as he set the foundation for their eventual total of 117-5.Imam Bacchus & Sons CC team captain collects anniversary trophy and cash from NAMILCO’s Fitzroy McLeod and Atomaram Lakeram.But once Persaud succumbed to the Imam Bacchus bowling attack, his teammates were not able to get the better of the pace and spin attack even though they got starts. Sudesh Persaud was left unbeaten on 18 when the overs ran out.Support came from Abdool Razzak (17) and Daniel Basdeo who was left not out on 12. N. Cadogan and K. Persaud were the pick of the Imam Bacchus bowlers with two for 12 and 13 runs, respectively.Needing to score 118 to win off their 20 overs, Imam Bacchus CC were very businesslike in their approach, led by openers Parmesh Parsatam and Navindra Persaud. The duo blasted the ball to all parts of the ground as neither of the NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team bowlers escaped the willow.Parsatam hit the boundary ropes on eight occasions in his match-winning 51 before he fell. And even though his opening partner, Navindra Persaud went back for 37, the foundation for victory was already laid for the winning prize of $50 000.Formalising the win were Yogeshwar Lall and Latchman Rohit who were left unbeaten on 16 and 13 respectively when the win was achieved. For their efforts, NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team collected $10 000; both teams were presented with trophies.During brief opening and closing ceremonies, host Sam Baksh expressed delight at being able to host the programme for the NAMILCO 50th Anniversary celebrations. He said that Imam Bacchus & Sons was more than elated to welcome Executive and Staff of the National Milling Company of Guyana.McLeod, in his remarks, stated that Imam Bacchus & Sons has been a faithful partner of NAMILCO from the time it started business in Guyana and the company thought it fitting to host such a programme there.Sincere gratitude on behalf of Managing Director Bert Sukhai – who was unavoidably absent – was extended to Mr Baksh, Imam Bacchus & Sons, players, staff members and fans by Sukhai’s Personal Assistant, Lakeram.He stated that the company was more than happy to give back to the community as they celebrate this milestone. A similar programme was held in the Ancient County of Berbice in May of this year.NAMILCO is also the title sponsor of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) national Intra Association Under-17 League which involves all nine (9) Regional Members Associations. The two entities inked a five-year deal back in 2016.NAMILCO was the first company in Guyana to sign a multi-year partnership deal with the federation.
The Hawkeyes have their eye on UW running back John Clay, who is a catalyst for Wisconsin\’s offense.[/media-credit]With the Border Battle already on the books, the Badgers now must turn their attention to another heated rivalry within the Big Ten against the Iowa Hawkeyes.Over the course of 84 games between the two teams, the overall record between Wisconsin and Iowa is tied at 41-41-2, making it one of the closest rivalries in all of college football. The battle for the Heartland Trophy, which began in 2004, has been won by the Hawkeyes three out of the five times, and most recently last year when the game was not really ever close with Iowa winning 38-16.Despite Iowa’s success against Wisconsin last year, however, Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz noted how different his team is from last year. So far this season, the Hawkeyes have already upset then-No. 5 Penn State and have climbed to No. 11 in the country.“We have had some major changes since last year, (we) lost some key players,” Ferentz said in his teleconference Tuesday.The most notable loss for the Iowa Hawkeyes comes at running back where they lost All-American, All-Big Ten junior Shonn Greene, who also won the Doak Walker Award for the best running back in college football. Now only averaging 130.2 rush yards per game, Ferentz sees a big difference in the team’s offensive makeup.“We’re getting by without Shonn, but he was such a big part of our offense. … It’s hard to compare anyone to Ron Dayne, especially in these parts, but that’s who I feel the best comparison is in terms of importance to our football team on and off the field.”Many feel the Hawkeyes’ 6-0 record can be attributed to their stout defense as well as their explosive special teams. Iowa’s defense, which lacks any top prospects or superstars, makes up for it in strong team chemistry and great tackling. In addition, the punting unit came up with one of the most key plays in college football this year, blocking a Penn State punt in the fourth quarter, which gave the lead and eventually the win to Iowa.“Our team is composed of some very physical players, we don’t have any superstars, (but) we play well together,” Ferentz said. “In my opinion the best teams start with a great defensive line.”Iowa’s offense has continuously sputtered throughout the season. The Hawkeyes lost who they thought would be there next starting running back to a knee injury early in the summer, and now use two freshmen in the backfield. In addition, the quarterback position, which was thought to be a steady one on offense, has been inconsistent throughout the season. Junior Ricky Stanzi has 10 touchdowns to go along with eight interceptions and at times has seemed out of sync with the offense.“Ricky’s play hasn’t always been pretty, it hasn’t always been good, but I can say it has been effective and we are where we wanted to be right now before the season,” Ferentz said.Wisconsin returns home to Madison this week to face a tough Iowa team, a game which is even more critical with the loss against Ohio State. If the Badgers can win this weekend, they will be tied with Iowa and Penn State — both of whom still have to play Ohio State — for second place in the Big Ten. However, a loss most likely puts UW out of contention for a Big Ten title.“We know they’re going to be even more hungry, we know there gonna want this one even more, and that’s what we’re preparing our players for down here, so when we go up there we know what to expect,” Ferentz said.The two most known offensive weapons for the Badgers, John Clay and Scott Tolzien, both struggled against Ohio State. Tolzien threw two interceptions, both of which were returned for touchdowns, and John Clay mustered out only 59 yards on 20 attempts. Nevertheless, Ferentz is certain the Badger offense will bounce back from its poor performance against the Buckeyes.“We expect Tolzien to return to his previous form, and big John Clay to be ready to go,” Ferentz said. “You got to be ready to go in a game like this.”

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 8, 2015 at 10:44 pm Contact Liam: email@example.com When Syracuse lost to UConn in the national championship last season, the team felt crushed. SU’s offense averaged 3.25 goals a game and 17.7 shots per game in 2014 had been shut out by a Huskies defense that only allowed the Orange to shoot seven times.The quick, forward-pushing Syracuse offense couldn’t overcome UConn’s “half-court press” defense that swarmed the defensive zone with bodies and refused speedy SU forwards opportunities to cut towards the cage.Fast forward to Syracuse’s home-opener this past Sunday and things have changed drastically.After the game, head coach Ange Bradley was pleased with her team’s ability to adapt to Massachusetts’ half-court press in the 4-0 win. The Minutewomen deployed the same defense UConn used to stop the Orange, but after an offseason of preparing for such, SU was ready.“(The difference) was our ability to maintain possession and ability to play a full game of hockey which we have not been able to do in the past,” Bradley said after the game. “… That’s something we’ve made a focus to learn and understand against that type of defense to find a way to win.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse (4-0) is off to a hot start in large part to its newfound versatile offense. The difference this season is knowing when to push forward and when to play more conservatively, working the ball around the outside and attacking weaknesses with purpose.Other teams know the Orange is built to run and choose to pack their defensive zones by gradually sinking back midfielders and even forwards, making it difficult for SU to thrive in open spaces. It’s a crowded defense, but against an aggressive offensive team like Syracuse, it works.“If we can play two systems very well like we have so far this year, we’re going to be dangerous,” forward Emma Russell said.SU’s default offensive attack is to utilize its speed, push forward and create opportunities through aggressive passing, but this year, teams are prepared.In a three-game swing to open the season in California, teams modeled their defensive approaches after UConn’s. Syracuse used its training camp and offseason to become used to playing quick hockey through 2-on-1 and 3-on-2 drills while limiting space to simulate a compressed defense.Opponents pack the defensive zone and rob Syracuse of its speed, shifting the focus from quick movement up the field to cutting more in smaller spaces. Instead of constant movement, the team has been forced to make stop-and-go play a regular part of its offense.“We’ve changed the whole structure of how we’re playing,” said midfield Alyssa Manley. “We’re focused on playing, passing and cutting in small spaces with large numbers of people.”Syracuse doesn’t know exactly what defense it will see from opponents from week to week but by diversifying its offensive attack and focusing on developing a plan for the “drop-back half-court press,” the team feels more comfortable either way.“It’s worked before so other smart teams will try to do it to us,” Russell said. “It’s something that, to be a very good team, we need to master and we’re on our way.” Comments

At the time he was an assistant at Baylor, a wide receivers coach looking for an opportunity to be a coordinator, to call plays.Babers had gotten offers at other schools, but nothing good, nothing that would let him bring another assistant with him. Unless he found the right opportunity, the then-25-year assistant coach would continue to be just that.He confided his concerns in Homer Smith, a former coach who had cancer at the time. Smith told him to step back from his misery and look in the room he was in. Half the people in there were without jobs. The other half were looking to hire.“’Dino, that’s a bunch of garbage,’” Babers remembers Smith, who died less than a year later, telling him. “‘You need to get off your butt and get it done.’”In 2011, Babers left his job as a Baylor assistant. But he got it done, getting hired at Eastern Illinois en route to major success at the FBS level. After two years, he moved to Bowling Green, where he just led his team to a Mid-American Conference championship on Friday. Four years as a head coach, three conference championships.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd by morning the morning of Dec. 5 — he went to sleep at 3:30 a.m. after celebrating — he had taken the job at Syracuse. Twenty-seven years as an assistant. Four more as a mid-major and FCS head coach. Fifteen different schools, six different positions coached. Now, he’s at Syracuse, in what he calls a “destination job.”“One of the reasons why I like this university over other universities that were available is that I thought at the other universities that I could win, but I’d have to move again,” Babers said. “What I was looking for is some place that I could win and have an opportunity to stay, because I have moved so much.“Babers’ wife, Susan Babers recently bought a map to put every spot that the couple has moved to together over the past three decades. On the map it says, “home is where you live”. Only four months ago, Susan Babers had bought a home in Ohio. On Saturday morning, she found out that her husband would need a new one.Susan had gotten home around 2 a.m. the night of the MAC championship, only to wake up at 4:10 a.m. for a flight to College Station, Texas to watch her daughter play volleyball. On her way there, she got a call from Babers, telling her that talks of getting to a school might be happening. The next time he called, Babers was the head coach at Syracuse.It was his decision to make, just like it was when he went to Eastern Illinois and took a pay cut to leave Baylor.“(Babers) goes by faith,” Susan said. “And once he makes his decision, I know it’s going to be the right one.”The two hardly talked between then and when she got back Sunday night. On Monday morning, they flew to Syracuse. Her daughter Jazzmin, whose Texas A&M volleyball team lost in the NCAA tournament, came, too. At 10 a.m. he introduced himself to the school. At 11 a.m., he schmoozed with players, coaches and boosters. At noon, he did more media. At 1 p.m., he did even more. At 3 p.m., he got to meet his team, asking them to give him a round of applause.For Babers, the week has been a nonstop whirlwind. The life of a new head coach in the ACC. But the buildup was long. Thirty years in the making. Twenty-seven as an assistant. Fifteen different schools and six different positions.Now he’s where he wants to be, and doesn’t want to leave.Said Babers: “I really think that this is where I was supposed to come.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
At a new school with a new job, Wisconsin head coach Bobbie Kelsey may find comfort seeing a familiar opponent Friday night.After leaving her assistant coaching position at Stanford to become the head coach at Wisconsin, Kelsey will get a chance to face one of her old conference rivals as the Badgers (1-1) welcome the Washington State Cougars (1-1) to the Kohl Center in a non-conference matchup.While the Badgers may benefit from their head coach’s knowledge of the Cougars, Kelsey knows Friday’s game will come down to the Badgers executing their game plan.“Washington State might be running some different stuff,” Kelsey said. “But the player personnel is pretty much the same. They have some of the same players back from my time at Stanford. But we still have to put the ball in the basket. You can know all you want about a team, but if you don’t execute your stuff and you don’t defend on your end and turn it over, you’re going to lose.”The fastbreak-happy Badgers will face another team that loves to run in the Cougars. While Wisconsin hoists up an average of 56 shots per game, Washington State averages 71. Wisconsin will have to be careful with the ball as well, as Washington State forces an average 25 turnovers a game.UW has been hard-pressed to keep the ball in their possession on offense. Turnovers have been a thorn in the heel of the Wisconsin offense, as the team averages 22.7 turnovers per game this year. In a loss against Oral Roberts, the Badgers gave the ball away 31 times. In the team’s most recent loss to Marquette, Wisconsin coughed it up 19 times en route to a close 54-52 loss.Sophomore Morgan Paige emphasized the Badgers’ turnovers come not from their opponent’s defense, but the Badgers own lack of execution.“We watch tape, and usually our turnovers come when we don’t know what set we’re in,” Paige said. “It all comes down to executing our offense. So if we can start minimizing those instances, we can benefit from those extra opportunities we miss from turnovers. If we can capitalize and execute, the turnovers will go down. We had less last game then we did [against Oral Roberts], but there’s still another step we need to take.”Kelsey echoed a similar insight, pointing to the Badgers’ impatience in the half court as well.“I think the last game [against Marquette] showed us we didn’t execute our offense very well,” Kelsey said. “We got lucky on the defensive end with them missing some shots and traveling. They struggled to execute their stuff as well, but in that game’s first half we weren’t running our plays properly. I give [the players] a little bit of freedom to read stuff, but you have to let the play initiate. Then if you see an opening or a crack, you can take it, but right now we’re taking it right away and not letting the play develop.”Much like the Badgers, the Cougars are a very balanced scoring team across the board. With five players averaging eight points or more per game, Washington State distributes the ball as evenly as Wisconsin, which boasts five players averaging seven points or more.“They’re really guard-orientated,” forward Ashley Thomas said. “They run a lot of staggered screens for their shooters. We’ve talked about showing on screens and making sure we give that extra time for our defenders to work through those screens.”For Wisconsin, Friday night will be all about returning to Badger basketball.“Our main focus is really improving on us,” Thomas said. “Not to take away anything from the other teams we’ve played, but a lot of what we’ve been doing has been on us. No team has taken us out of our gameplan; we just haven’t controlled the ball like we should. When we actually run our offense right, we get good shots. It’s just on us to not get away from what we should do.”
