With postseason hopes bleak, Orange volleyball needs 2 wins against Big East’s best

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The season is on the line. The only option for the Syracuse volleyball team is to win. But it won’t be easy. The prospects are bleak. SU (23-7, 5-7) faces the top-two teams in the Big East conference in Cincinnati and Louisville this weekend. Upset both and SU has a good shot at making the Big East tournament, contingent upon Pittsburgh and St. John’s performances this weekend as well. As of Thursday, all three teams have Big East records of 5-7. SU sits behind Pitt and in front of St John’s in ninth place in the conference, SU lost to the Panthers but beat the Red Storm earlier in the season. Only eight teams qualify for the tournament. ‘I think if we have that mentality going into these two games then we’ll hopefully do some amazing things,’ SU outside hitter Hayley Todd said. leak, Orange volleyball needs 2 wins against Big East’s bestThe Panthers currently hold the tie breaker over SU for that last spot over the Orange with its win earlier in the season. But because Pitt will be playing its first game of the season against St. John’s this weekend, things could get even more fuzzy.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text If the Panthers beat SJU, it will have the tiebreaker over both St. John’s and Syracuse. But if SJU beats Pitt, then it becomes a three-way tie between all three teams. A tie means the conference will have to go more in depth for the season statistics of each team, SU assistant coach Carol LaMarche said. It may be one weekend, but there is long way to go before the final tournament team surfaces. And despite the long odds, Syracuse feels that it will put themselves in the most attractive of positions. They feel they can win both. ‘We want to go out this weekend winning two,’ assistant coach Carol LaMarche said. ‘It doesn’t matter who the teams are on the other side of the court.’ LaMarche shares her attitude with her players. They’re not intimidated by the likes of the Bearcats and the Cardinals. Even though the Orange isn’t favored to win either game, anything can happen in the Big East. The team remains focused on winning. Losing never enters their mind. And it can’t, if SU wants to win and make the Big East tournament. Syracuse plans to play like the team that started the season 17-0 in this final two-game stretch. The Orange plays its best when it is relaxed and having fun — playing like it has nothing to lose, Todd said. But heart alone won’t get the team wins against the best teams in the league. Which is why the team has a game plan for Cincinnati. One it hopes will get it the win, something 11 of Cincinnati’s 12 Big East opponents failed to do this season. In the second game of the weekend, SU faces a Louisville team that is not as highly ranked as Cincinnati. But the Cardinals did give the Bearcats its only Big East loss this season. The Cardinals will prove to be a tough challenge. But not an impossible hurdle like in years past. ‘Louisville’s not as intimidating to us as it used to be,’ LaMarche said. ‘They’re a little more level but they’re still a really good team. Anything can happen.’ If Syracuse gets the Louisville coach yelling, that is a good sign for SU, LaMarche said. That means Louisville has done something wrong and the Orange has a good chance of winning. But for everything to click this weekend, everyone on the team must step up. There is no room for errors anymore. Not with the season living or dying with these two final games. ‘We all need to be playing at the same time and have everyone on at the same time because we’ve been lacking that lately,’ senior captain Sarah Hayes said. ‘All we can do is give our best.’ If SU leaves everything on the court, it could win both games. That may seem unrealistic to outsiders. Beating the top teams in the league in back-to-back games seems too tough. But not to the Orange. This is a team that raced off to the best start in program history. It may be 5-7 in the Big East, but swap a couple of its close games, and SU could just as easily be 7-5. LaMarche wouldn’t be surprised if Syracuse won both games. This team is 23-7. She feels the record speaks for itself. ‘We’re a good team,’ LaMarche said. ‘We’d be super-ecstatic (if we won both), but this team can do it.’ Come Friday, the team faces its first test against Cincinnati. A team SU believes it can beat. The same will be true against Louisville just two days later. ‘All you can think about is winning,’ Todd said. ‘That’s the game plan.’ Published on November 10, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Rachel: rnmarcus@syr.educenter_img Commentslast_img read more

Dodgers’ Hanley Ramirez wasn’t about to be denied

first_imgHanley Ramirez was loaded up on everything from painkiller medication to a protective vest around his ribs Monday. Everything except for sleep.“This is no time to lay down right now,” Ramirez said. “You’ve just got to keep going out.”A CT scan on Ramirez’s left ribcage revealed a hairline fracture of the eighth rib, a diagnosis that eluded an earlier X-ray. Ramirez suffered the injury in the first inning of Game 1 of the National League Championship Series on Friday when he was hit with a 95-mph fastball by Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly. He played the remainder of the 13-inning game. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Ramirez was too hurt to play in Game 2 on Saturday, and was only somewhat limited in pregame activities Monday.He stretched, but did not jog, with teammates in the outfield grass at Dodger Stadium. Ramirez took a few ground balls at shortstop and a full round of batting practice, hitting a few balls over the fence among several line drives.Then, he declared himself ready.“I’ll do anything for this team and this city,” Ramirez said. “I’m going to go out there tonight for the fans and for my teammates just looking for the first win.”Ramirez finished 2 for 4 with an RBI single in the eighth inning of the Dodgers’ 3-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

He jogged from first base to the edge of the outfield grass under the watch of Cardinals manager Mike Matheny and a team trainer and was allowed to continue. But after going to second base on a single by Matt Adams, Freese was replaced by pinch-runner Daniel Descalso.Descalso didn’t last long, either. He was thrown out on the back end of a double play when Dodgers left fielder Carl Crawford caught a line drive by Jon Jay, then threw to second base.The Cardinals announced that Freese is day-to-day.Dusty in the houseFormer major-league manager Dusty Baker was wearing his familiar Dodgers No. 12 jersey, but declined comment when asked if he would be interested in managing here in the future. “Oh man, I’ve got to leave that alone,” he said.

He was dismissed as the Cincinnati Reds’ manager 10 days ago and would like to manage again.“Yeah, why not?

School Security guard accidentally shoots coworker

first_imgThe Broward County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating after an armed private school security guard accidentally shot a maintenance worker in the face.The incident was reported Thursday at The Sagemont School in Weston.Officials say the security guard and the maintenance worker were in the parking lot when the gun accidentally went off and struck the maintenance worker in the eye.The security guard then drove the worker to an area hospital before notifying the police about the situation.Not much is known about the incident at this time including the condition of the maintenance worker.Authorities did, however, report that no charges have been pressed against the guard at this time despite the guard also not being authorized to have a gun on school property.Legislatures passed a law requiring all public schools to have an armed police officer, guard or another employee on campus at all times after the Stoneman Douglas shooting that left 17 people dead and 17 injured, however, the ruling does not reportedly cover private schools.Authorities are continuing to investigate the incident.last_img read more
