Zach Gentile paced the 7th graders with 13 points while Bryce Wrightsman added 8 points, Ryan Miller 4, Dalton Smith 3, and Nick Schwarte 2.    Grade 8-SR 54 Batesville 47  The host Raiders withstood a furious 4th quarter comeback attempt by the Bulldogs in a 54-47 victory. Both teams opened the game with full court presses, but behind some sharp shooting from South Ripley the Raiders pulled ahead 20-10 at the end of one quarter of play. The home boys put the clamps on the Bulldogs in quarter two, allowing only 3 points while scoring 11 to take a 31-13 lead into the break. Each team scored 15 third quarter points which set the stage for a frantic fourth. Batesville scored 19 points, but the Raiders weathered the storm to hold on for the win, their fourth in a row.

Nastasic: No issue with Pellegrini

first_img Nastasic said: “I had a couple of options but, with my agent also, I decided with the club, and Man City, that it was the best option, Schalke. “At the moment it is a loan and at the end of the season we will see what will happen.” The move will see Nastasic link up with Schalke’s former Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo. Nastasic said: “I already spoke with him and he told me about the club, about the team and I hope we have a good relationship there.” Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic claims he has no issues with manager Manuel Pellegrini as he prepares to join Schalke on loan. That represents a considerable slump in fortunes for Nastasic, having been one of City’s players of the season under Roberto Mancini two years ago, but he insists his relationship with Pellegrini was fine. “No, everything was all right,” said Nastasic, when asked on Sky Sports News HQ about whether there were problems with Pellegrini. “I think that is the best option for me and I hope everything will be all right. “It was hard for me. In six months I didn’t play one game. I wanted to go because for my career it is best at the moment to play a lot of games.” Nastasic joined City from Fiorentina in 2012 and became a regular in his first season at the Etihad Stadium. Calf and knee injuries robbed him of game time last season and he then fell behind Martin Demichelis in the pecking order. The summer signing of Eliaquim Mangala then limited his opportunities further and Pellegrini has since appeared to view Dedryck Boyata as a better prospect. He is now set to join Schalke until the end of the season with the Bundesliga club – who, like City, are still in this season’s Champions League – revealing they also have a “purchase option” on the player. Press Association The German club have announced the signing of the Serbia centre-back – subject to a medical – on a temporary deal that could lead to a permanent move. Nastasic, 21, has fallen out of favour at City under Pellegrini and has not featured since the Community Shield clash against Arsenal on August 10. last_img read more

What we learned from Syracuse’s win over Montana State

first_imgSyracuse (9-3) mauled Montana State (5-7) in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday night, 82-60. With 2:11 left in the game, the Orange’s lead peaked at 30 before interim head coach Mike Hopkins subbed in walk-ons Shaun Belbey, Evan Dourdas, Adrian Autry, Doyin Akintobi-Adeyeye and Ky Feldman.The Orange managed to outrebound Montana State, 48-45, the second straight game SU has outrebounded its opponent. Syracuse had not gotten more boards than its opponent in consecutive games since the Orange played Elon, Charlotte and Connecticut.The matchup with the Bobcats served as SU’s second-to-last nonconference game. Its last will be against Texas Southern on Dec. 27.Here are three things we learned from SU’s win over Montana State.Malachi Richardson hasn’t found his shooting strokeAdvertisementThis is placeholder textMalachi Richardson had another off shooting night, going 3-of-9 from the field and 0-of-4 from beyond the 3-point arc. Hopkins praised Richardson, who corralled five rebounds, for battling down low, but in 25 minutes, the guard scored just seven points.Before Syracuse’s game against Wisconsin, Richardson shot better than 40 percent from the field, but since, he’s shot just below 30 percent. The trend is the same behind the arc. Before SU played the Badgers, Richardson shot nearly 40 percent from behind the arc, and since he’s hit just 15 percent of his shots from deep.In the last six games, the freshman has only hit six 3s, the same number of 3s he hit in his first two games at Syracuse. At the beginning of the season, he was supposed to be SU’s third shooter after guards Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije, but those two have had to carry the load for a team that was supposed to get much of its production from beyond the arc.Against Montana State though, Richardson’s poor shooting performance didn’t hurt Syracuse as much because Dajuan Coleman, Tyler Lydon and Chinonso Obokoh outmatched the Bobcats’ undersized frontcourt.Missed free throws continue to cost Syracuse pointsMontana State picked up a total of 24 fouls against Syracuse on Tuesday, giving the Orange 24 free throws throughout the night. SU made just 11, or 46 percent. On the year, Syracuse shoots about 67 percent from the charity stripe, and the performance against the Bobcats was SU’s worst of the season.Although Montana State came in as an inferior opponent, the same performance could hurt SU moving into conference play just over a week away. The only Syracuse players to take multiple free throws and make more than half of them were forward Tyler Roberson, who hit 3-of-5 and Coleman, who hit all three of his.Tuesday was an uncharacteristically awful performance from a team that isn’t great at free throws already, ranking 158th in the nation.Tyler Lydon is nearly a double-double machineDuring the Battle 4 Atlantis, ESPN color commentator Jay Bilas drooled over Tyler Lydon’s pro prospects, even comparing him to Dallas Mavericks star Chandler Parsons. The hype has died down a bit since he shot 60 percent from the field, 70 percent behind the arc, averaged 15 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game in the three games in the Bahamas.But the forward has still been averaging nearly a double-double. Against Montana State, Lydon scored 10 points and corralled nine boards. His performance dipped right after SU played in the Battle 4 Atlantis, racking up a total of just six rebounds and 11 points in two games against Wisconsin and Georgetown. Since then, his numbers have progressively gotten better, as he registered a double-double against St. John’s.Obokoh and Coleman may have had solid performances for SU against Montana State, but Lydon’s consistent success has been and will be a key for Syracuse going forward.

Volleyball: Gophers win in four sets, prove to be too much for Badgers

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin volleyball team (16-5, 9-4 Big Ten) dropped a tough battle against Big Ten rival Minnesota (19-2, 13-0) Halloween night.

The rest of the set was all Badgers. The team finished the set on a 19–6 run, to take the set 25–16, including seven kills from Rettke and a stretch of six straight points thanks to several errors from the Minnesota squad.Men’s basketball: Aleem Ford out indefinitely with knee injurySophomore forward Aleem Ford has been ruled out indefinitely after sustaining a knee injury during practice and having surgery earlier Read…The second set of the match once again started slow for the Badgers, with Minnesota jumping out to a 12–5 lead early on and never looking back. Led by sophomore Stephanie Samedy, Minnesota was able to win the set 25–22 despite a late comeback by the Badgers.The third set of the match was a back and forth battle much of the way through. With the Badgers leading 13–12, the Gophers needed a momentum shift, and they got one in the form of six straight points, including three kills from freshman Adanna Rollins to give them the lead, 18–13. The rest of the set continued to be close, with Minnesota prevailing for a 25–19 win and 2–1 lead in the match.In the fourth set, both teams battled hard, with the score tied 10–10 early on. The two teams exchanged points until it was again tied 15–15. Minnesota then found their groove, pulling away for an 18–15 lead which they never relinquished, winning the final set 25–19 for a 3–1 match victory.Football: Takeaways from jaw-dropping loss in EvanstonUp until Saturday’s disappointing display from the Wisconsin football team, in which they lost 31–17 to the Northwestern Wildcats (in Read…Along with Rattke’s record breaking performance, teammate Sydney Hilley finished with 56 assists, making it a point to go to Rattke every opportunity she got. Despite the loss, Wisconsin also managed to finish the match with a better hitting percentage — .296 for Wisconsin and .272 for Minnesota — as well as two more blocks than Minnesota.The Badgers have a busy week ahead, beginning with a match against No.14 Michigan Sunday at the UW Field House.
