Vavic and Trojans begin quest for fifth straight title

first_img“We feel very good,” USC coach Jovan Vavic said. “We have had a very productive and good training, and I think the guys are very anxious and excited about starting to play finally.”The biggest storyline of the offseason has revolved around who will replace departed star goalkeeper Joel Dennerly, and though the season is finally set to begin, Vavic still has yet to officially name a starter, and might not do so anytime soon.“Our team doesn’t really have starting positions; we have guys who play and guys who don’t play,” Vavic said. “So both of our goalies are going to play. We’re going to have [redshirt sophomore] Ely [Bonilla] and [junior] James [Clark] compete for the playing time.”When asked if there was any timetable on how long the two would share playing time, Vavic made it clear there was no rush to anoint a main goalie just yet.“It’s hard to say right now,” Vavic said. I would say that they are both good enough so we can play both of them against any opponent and then we adjust.” Regardless of when, or if, a decision is made, USC opens its season with a doubleheader against the University of La Verne and Pomona-Pitzer College, followed by scrimmages against tougher foes Pepperdine, UC Santa Barbara, Chapman and UCLA.USC has defeated UCLA each of the last two seasons for the national championship.“We’ve been looking forward to [the first game] all summer,” senior driver Michael Rosenthal said.  “It’s a lot of fun playing in real games and we can’t wait for the season to start.”In addition to breaking in a pair of new goalies, the rest of the squad plans to focus on helping Bonilla and Clark adapt to their potential starting roles.“We always try to work on defense,” Rosenthal said. “These scrimmages are a good chance for us to see our opponent and see how they’re going to play against us.”The team will also use the invitational as an opportunity to incorporate as many players as possible into the lineup.“We’re going to try some different things,” Vavic said. “We’re going to play as many players as we can, and give everybody an opportunity to show what they can do and get ready for some of the more important and tougher games.” The USC men’s water polo team has waited patiently. Now the time has come to defend its water polo title. The journey begins this weekend at the UCLA Invitational, which will serve as an opportunity for the team to get into midseason form as quickly as possible.Back for more · Senior driver Tobias Preuss scored 16 goals last season for the Trojans.

Kyrie Irving puts in a record-breaking performance on his debut.

Irving took his time but suddenly stepped it up a notch, as he beat the three Wolves players who tried to block the shot. He then got caught up in the moment and appeared to count each defender he beat after netting the basket. Interestingly, during his 50-point display, Kyrie Irving also went on to set a record. The former Celtics star now holds the record for most points in an NBA debut. Nets fans will be licking their lips at the prospect of having one of the most potent scorers in the league, as the Nets look to challenge for the crown this season. Also Read | NBA: Kawhi Leonard Leads Clippers To A 112-102 Win Over LakersAlso Read | LeBron James Has Epic Stare Down With Clippers Guard Lou Williams WE RECOMMEND Written By In dropping a 50-point display against the Minnesota Timberwolves, Irving became the just the seventh player in Nets’ history to net 50 points in a game.

Griffin’s 31 points, Jordan’s 23 rebounds lead Clippers past pesky Pacers

first_imgThe Clippers (18-7) led by as many as nine points in the first quarter, and led 78-72 after three quarters. Indiana came back to lead 89-83 with 7:37 to play and 93-88 with 5:36 left. But the Pacers (8-18) went scoreless for nearly four minutes and the Clippers emerged victorious.Trailing 93-92, Jordan made two clutch free throws with 3:34 to play and then Paul hit a 15-footer for a 96-93 lead. The Clippers never trailed again.But again, Indiana did not go quietly. C.J. Watson, who was fouled by J.J. Redick with 34.9 seconds to play, made three free throws to get his team within 99-98.After Watson’s free throws, the Clippers turned the ball over when Paul and Griffin couldn’t connect on a pass from Paul in the paint. Rodney Stuckey then missed a shot that would have put the Pacers ahead. Redick was fouled and made two free throws with 15.8 seconds left for a 101-98 Clippers lead.Watson made a layup and Redick made one of two free throws for the game’s final point with two seconds left. C.J. Miles missed a prayer of a 30-footer at the buzzer that could have won the game for Indiana. Blake Griffin led Los Angeles with 31 points and 16 rebounds, Chris Paul had 20 points and nine assists. DeAndre Jordan scored 15 points and grabbed 23 rebounds and Redick scored 16.West and Miles scored 17 points apiece for Indiana. West also had 10 rebounds. Lavoy Sloan, who scored 12 points off the bench, led the Pacers with 14 rebounds.Clippers coach Doc Rivers said his team “didn’t play great,” but he praised the Pacers.“They played hard,” Rivers said. “I think that’s what they’ve done. Frank’s done an amazing job under extreme circumstances.”The Clippers shot 43.6 percent from the field. Griffin shot 11 of 27. He admitted his team was fortunate to come away with the victory.“We made a lot of bad mistakes down the stretch,” he said. “I missed free throws; a lot of things that are uncharacteristic for us. But we got the win. That’s all that matters.”Griffin was 9 of 13 from the free-throw line, but he missed two in the final 2:35.Even though his team struggled to put away a team that likely won’t even make the playoffs, Rivers liked that when the chips were down, his team came through on defense.“You know what I loved was they got up and we needed stops and I think from the 5:30 to the 1-minute mark, they scored zero points and that’s the great sign of a team, when you’re not playing well and all of a sudden you can go on the defensive front,” he said. “And that’s what we did. We just got stops in a row.”Jordan, who was a beast on the boards and blocked two shots, concurred.“It was us strapping up at the end and getting stops,” said Jordan, who was 7 of 15 from the free-throw line. “Ultimately, that is what it came down to, us getting stops and executing. We had some foolish mistakes, like fouling on a 3, but things like that happen in a game. We just have to refocus.” A season ago, the Indiana Pacers had the best regular-season record in the Eastern Conference at 56-26. But no thanks to major injuries, the Pacers entered their game Wednesday against the Clippers with a record of 8-17. They are 11th in the conference standings.Forward Paul George averaged 21.7 points in 2013-14, but he’s been out all season with a broken leg. Point guard George Hill (knee/quadriceps) also has not played and power forward David West had appeared in only 10 games before Wednesday.“Yeah, it’s been tough, no doubt about it,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said prior to tip-off. “No fun losing. We are hoping that the way we started is not how we’re going to finish the season, and how the season is going to be defined.”It wasn’t easy, but the Clippers put another loss on Indiana, just barely beating the hard-playing Pacers 102-100 before a sellout crowd of 19,060 at Staples Center.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Liverpool studies Giménez as a substitute for Lovren

first_imgStrong in the air game, both in his area and the opposite, with 1.85 of height and inhuman determination to leave the skin in every set of the game, Giménez is one of those players who represent the shield, which the fans consider to be a youth team, arrived in the 2013-14 season. Third rojiblanco captain, at the moment Savic and Felipe seem to be the holders for the Cholo. Giménez must return to recover his place … While from the Premier they tempt him. Dejan Lovren (30 years) ends his contract with Liverpool this June and the Klopp team already manages a list of futures in which there is a rojiblanco central: Alessandro Bastoni (20 years old), from Inter; Dayot Upamecano (21 years old), from Lepzig; and José María Giménez (25 years old), from Atlético. Around these three the dais reho defoliate the daisy. They look for youth and forcefulness in the area. Commander have contract with the rojiblanco club until 2023 and a clause that amounted to 120 million in the last renovation. He is a pillar of Cholo, although this season he has been persecuted by injuries again.Called to inherit the presence of Godín in the dressing room and on the board, and not only on his bib, these injuries have barely allowed him to participate in the team. In the League he has played only 41% of the possible minutes, in total he has lost 18 games. He returned to Anfield to play 14 ’against Liverpool, ten games after the last time: it had been in the Spanish Super Cup that he played until his twins screamed for ice packs for pain. last_img read more
