Well, someone had to win

first_imgSenior guard Trevon Hughes and the Wisconsin Badgers escaped with a win Wednesday night at the Kohl Center, thanks in large part to the 20-point performance by Hughes. The native of Queens, N.Y., helped UW rally past the Wolverines with 16 second-half points.[/media-credit]When the final horn sounded Wednesday night at the Kohl Center, the scoreboard read 54-48 in favor of the Wisconsin men’s basketball team — and thankfully for the Badgers, that is the only stat that matters.Playing its ugliest game of the season so far, UW finished with several offensive statistics that would make James Naismith blush.Wisconsin shot 34 percent from the floor and a cool 16 percent from beyond the arc. The Badgers didn’t score their first points until six minutes had bled in the game, and they ended the half with a mere 18 points. Calling this matchup a Big Ten slugfest would be putting it kindly.Still, Wisconsin came out with a “W” on the left-hand side of the column due in large part to a resiliency that has marked Bo Ryan’s teams for the past nine years.“I think it just shows a lot about our team,” UW’s only true big man to play, Keaton Nankivil said. “We have a setback with Jon (Leuer’s wrist injury), but we are not the kind of team to make excuses… even when we don’t shoot well, we still do a lot of stuff well that puts us in position to win and that is the way Coach coaches us.”Making up for the dreadful shooting night was Wisconsin’s intelligent play. For the game UW only turned the ball over five times, including just once in the second half. And with the outside shots not falling — or even coming close in the case of two ill-advised attempts from Tim Jarmusz — the Badgers worked their way to the free throw line and connected on 14 of 17 attempts. Those 14 makes were more than Michigan had attempts.“That is how you get it done. When you are shooting a poor percentage you need to be making free throws and you need to not turn the ball over,” Ryan said. “That is the only way you have a chance, when those two things happen.”Wisconsin started the game missing its first seven shots — six of which were three pointers — but managed to stay in the game by only allowing Michigan to score six points.According to Ryan, the six minute stretch to open the game doesn’t bother him because all teams go through scoreless bouts some time during the course of play.“If you are not hitting shots it’s called a slow start,” Ryan said.“In every game there are little spells. We have talked about this a million times. It could have been with five minutes to go in the game… in this case it happened early.”While the Badgers’ scoring was balanced, with three different players reaching double figures and seven guys getting at least one bucket for the game, Michigan’s attack was based almost solely on getting DeShawn Sims and Manny Harris shots.Unfortunately for the Wolverines, only one half of that combo was clicking.Sims finished the game with 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting, but Harris was held to 11 points — eight below his season average — and only reached the charity stripe once.While a lot of credit can be given to Jarmusz for keeping the athletic guard in front of him, Michigan coach Jim Beilein thought some of the trouble was Harris simply missing makeable shots.“[Wisconsin] always has a guy that can do that, but I do think several times Manny got a couple of good looks,” he said. “Tim is a good defender but I’m sure Manny would want to have some of those shots back.”As Badger fans should be used to seeing by now, the ball was in Trevon Hughes’ hands down the stretch, and the senior guard did not disappoint.Finishing the game with 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting, UW’s leading scorer poured in eight points over the final five minutes, including a backbreaking layup with the shot clock about to expire.“I had to get a spark and get something going,” Hughes said. “I had to stay aggressive, I know my teammates feed off of that.”Playing in the third straight game without Leuer, the Badgers attempted 24 three-point attempts to only 28 two-point field goals. In this three-game stretch, nearly 50 percent of UW’s shots have come from beyond the arc, and the team has only averaged 55 points a game.With a hint of stubbornness in his voice, though, Ryan said the team has no plan to change how they are playing — saying in effect, they will continue to take what the defense gives them.“Who knows?” Ryan said about the three-point attempts. “We are just going to keep finding ways. It could be ten the next time, it could be 40 the next time.”last_img read more

Clippers president Andy Roeser taking indefinite leave of absence

first_imgLongtime Clippers president Andy Roeser will take an indefinite leave of absence, effective immediately, the NBA announced Tuesday.Roeser took over the franchise’s day-to-day operations after owner Donald Sterling was banned for life last week, though Roeser would have had to answer to a new CEO.“This will provide an opportunity for a new CEO to begin on a clean slate and for the team to stabilize under difficult circumstances,” Mike Bass, the NBA executive vice president of communications, said in a statement.Sterling was banned for life from the NBA and fined $2.5 million last week for making racist remarks caught on audio tape that were released by TMZ. Roeser’s name was attached to a press release that questioned the veracity of the audio capturing Sterling’s comments.Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said Tuesday in Oklahoma City that Roeser being linked to the statement defending Sterling was upsetting.“Yeah, I think that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way,” Rivers said. “And Andy right away said that was the wrong statement, so he apologized for that and then we moved on.”When asked if Roeser’s leave of absence was necessary, Rivers said: “I don’t know, I don’t know. I don’t really have a comment on that yet, so we’re just going to keep moving forward.”Nevertheless, the news Tuesday did take Rivers by surprise. “Yeah, yeah, it does. And I didn’t know it. I knew they were going to bring a new CEO in eventually, but it does,” said Rivers, whose team has a 1-0 lead over the Thunder in their best-of-seven series after Monday night’s 122-105 victory.“I mean, I just didn’t know about it. And I’m glad that I didn’t know about it, honestly. I think the NBA is doing their job and we’re just trying to keep this thing together.”After play-by-play broadcaster Ralph Lawler, Roeser is the second-longest tenured member of the franchise. Roeser became executive vice president in 1984 after the Clippers moved from San Diego. He was promoted to team president in 1986.The Long Beach resident was also the team’s alternate governor, representing it in league matters.Despite being in charge of the team’s business operations, Roeser had worked mostly behind the scenes and often was involved in negotiating players’ contracts. He took on a significantly more visible role when he represented the Clippers at the 2009 NBA draft lottery. The Clippers won the first pick, which they used to select star forward Blake Griffin.Rivers, who is also the team’s senior vice president of basketball operations, conceded Tuesday he isn’t sure who his boss is at this point.“Don’t know yet. So I’ll have to find that out today. … I mean, honestly, the way we’ve worked, that’s how they have allowed me to work for the most part anyway, so that hasn’t been a big change,” Rivers said. “Andy, he basically let me do what I needed to do. I would have to call him every once in a while about stuff. So it’s nothing big. In the next couple of weeks it’s going to have to be decided anyway and I think the league probably understands that.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
