Tokyo: Ace Indian shuttlers PV Sindhu and HS Prannoy moved into the second round of Japan Open with contrasting wins over their respective rivals in the women’s and men’s singles events here on Wednesday. Fifth seed Sindhu, who came out second best in last week’s Indonesia Open, took 37 minutes to get the better of unseeded Chinese Han Yue 21-9 21-17 and set up a clash against Aya Ohori of Japan.Sindhu came agonisingly close to winning her first title of the year before losing to another Japanese Akane Yamaguchi at the Indonesia Open last week. But it was curtains for eighth seed K Srikanth, whose poor run of form continued as he crashed out after suffering defeat at the hands of compatriot Prannoy earlier in the day.Prannoy stunned the higher-ranked Srikanth 13-21 21-11 22-20 in a match that lasted 59 minutes at the BWF World Tour Super 750 tournament.It was disappointment for Sameer Verma as well as he lost to Denmark’s Anders Antonsen in straight games in another men’s singles match. The unseeded Indian lost 17-21 12-21 in the contest that lasted 46 minutes.The eighth seed Srikanth, who holds a superior head-to-head record against Prannoy, started of well clinching the first game 21-13.However, the unseeded Prannoy came back strongly taking the second game 21-11. The decider went down to the wire with Prannoy having the last laugh. He will face Rasmus Gemke of Denmark in the second round.Srikanth, the former world No. 1, has been struggling for consistency this season. He made a second-round exit from the Indonesia Open last week.It was good news for India in the men’s doubles competition as Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty defeated the English pair of Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge 21-16 21-17 to enter the second round.They will next be up against the winner of another first-round match between Korean pair of Solgyu Choi and Seung Jae Seo and China’s Kai Xiang Huang and Cheng Liu.But the women’s doubles combination of Ashwini Ponappa and N Sikki Reddy crashed out after losing 16-21 14-21 against Korea’s So Yeong Kim Korea and Hee Yong Kong.The Indian mixed doubles pair of Pranaav Jerry Chopra and Sikki Reddy also bowed out of the tournament, losing 11-21 14-21 to top seeded Chinese duo of Zhend Si Wei and Huang Ya Qiaong in just 26 minutes.

… Hosts Zimbabwe to feature on the opening day March 4 in Bulawayo; Windies to start campaign in Harare on March 6TWO-TIME world champions Windies will be the star attraction when 10 sides converge on Zimbabwe next month for the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018, to battle it out for the two remaining places in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.The announcement marks 500 days to the ICC’s pinnacle 50-over tournament, which will be staged in the United Kingdom from May 30 to July 15.Queen’s Sports Club and Bulawayo Athletic Club in Bulawayo, Harare Sports Club and Old Hararians Sports Club in Harare and Kwekwe Sports Club, Kwekwe, will share 34 matches from March 4 to 25, with Harare Sports Club staging the final.The Windies, along with Afghanistan, Ireland and Zimbabwe, had missed out on automatic qualification for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 by finishing outside the top eight on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings at the September 30, 2017 cut-off date.These four sides have been joined by Hong Kong, the Netherlands, Scotland and Papua New Guinea, who finished in the top four of the ICC World Cricket League Championship.The remaining two sides for the Zimbabwe tournament will be confirmed in Namibia February 8-15 when Canada, Kenya, Namibia, Nepal, Oman and the United Arab Emirates will fight it out in the ICC World Cricket League Division 2, with the finalists getting a step closer to cherishing their dreams of playing in the ICC Cricket World Cup.Eighty-three teams had embarked on the road to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 way back in 2013 through the ICC World Cricket League, introduced to give the teams outside the top 12 meaningful competition as part of the World Cup qualification.The 10 teams taking part in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018 are split into two groups of five teams. The Windies, Ireland, the Netherlands, Papua New Guinea and winners of the ICC World Cricket League Division 2 make up Group A, while Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Scotland, Hong Kong and runners-up of the ICC World Cricket League Division 2 form Group B.Each side will play the other teams in their group once with the top three from the groups progressing to the Super Six stage. The teams each play three Super Six matches against the sides they did not meet in the group stage. All points won in the groups will be carried over to the Super Six stage apart from those gained against the bottom two from each group.The finalists will both progress to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, whilst the Netherlands (ICC World Cricket League Championship winners) and the three highest finishing Associate Members will earn ODI status till 2022 upon the conclusion of the event.As such, only matches between Afghanistan, Ireland, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, Scotland, the Windies, Zimbabwe and potentially the United Arab Emirates (if they qualify) will have ODI status in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier 2018.Hosts Zimbabwe will feature on the opening day of the tournament on March 4 when they take on the runners-up from the Namibia tournament at the Queen’s Sports Club, Bulawayo, while the Windies will square-off against the winners of the Namibia tournament on March 6 at Old Hararians Cricket Club in Harare.GROUPS:GROUP A: Windies (A1); Ireland (A2); Netherlands (A3); Papua New Guinea (A4); ICC World Cricket League Division 2 (WCL Div.2) winner (A5)GROUP B: Afghanistan (B1); Zimbabwe (B2); Scotland (B3); Hong Kong (B4); ICC World Cricket League Division 2 (WCL Div.2) runners-up (B5)Fixtures (warm-up matches):Tuesday, February 27 – Afghanistan v Windies, Harare Sports Club (HSC); Hong Kong v Netherlands, Old Hararians (OH); WCL Div..2 (winner) v WCL Div..2 (runners-up), Kwekwe (KK); Zimbabwe v Ireland, Queen’s Sports Club (QSC); Scotland v PNG, Bulawayo Athletic Club (BAC)Thursday, March 1 – WCL Div..2 (winners) v Windies, Harare Sports Club (HSC); Afghanistan v Netherlands, Old Hararians (OH); Hong Kong v WCL Div..2 (runners-up), Kwekwe (KK); Scotland v Ireland, Queen’s Sports Club (QSC); Zimbabwe v PNG, Bulawayo Athletic Club (BAC)TOURNAMENT PROPER (FIRST ROUND):Sunday, March 4 – PNG v WCL Div..2 winner, HSC; Ireland v Netherlands, OH; Zimbabwe v WCL Div..2 (runners-up), Queens Sports Club (QSC); Afghanistan v Scotland, BACTuesday, March 6 – PNG v Ireland, HSC; Windies v WCL Div. 2 (winner), OH; Zimbabwe v Afghanistan, QSC; Scotland v Hong Kong, BACThursday, March 8 – Netherlands v WCL Div.2 (winner), HSC; Windies v PNG, OH; Scotland v WCL Div..2 (runners-up), QSC; Afghanistan v Hong Kong, BACSaturday, March 10 – Windies v Ireland, HSC; PNG v Netherlands, OH; Zimbabwe v Hong Kong, QSC; Afghanistan v WCL Div. 2 (runners-up), BACMonday, March 12 – Windies v Netherlands, HSC; Ireland v WCL Div. 2 (winners), OH; Hong Kong v WCL Div. 2 (runners-up), QSC; Zimbabwe v Scotland, BACSUPER SIXESThursday, March 15 – A1 v B1, HSC; A3 v B3, QSC; A5 v B4 (play-off), OH; A4 v B5 (play-off), KKFriday, March 16 – A2 v B2, HSCSaturday, March 17 – 9th/10th position play-off, OH; 7th/8th position play-off, KKSunday, March 18 – A2 v B3, HSCMonday, March 19 – A1 v B2, HSCTuesday, March 20 – A3 v B1, HSCThursday, March 22 – A1 v B3, HSC; A3 v B2, OHFriday, March 23 – A2 v B1, HSCSunday, March 25 – FINAL, HSC

Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 30, 2013 at 9:55 pm Contact Phil: firstname.lastname@example.org | @PhilDAbb Brian Wright needed a kicker.The one from the previous season had graduated, and the Cherry Hill West High School head coach was so desperate that he brought in a lacrosse player to try out.He didn’t cut it.But then Rodney Williams, the New Jersey high school’s starting quarterback and safety, walked over and told his coach he could do it.“The first time he kicked an extra point, it probably would’ve been good from about 50 yards out,” Wright said. “He’s just an awesome athlete.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s by far one of the best players in South Jersey and it’s a pretty talented area in terms of high school football.”Williams, rated a three-star recruit by Scout, is one of Syracuse’s first verbal commitments in the Class of 2014. He is being recruited as a defensive back, SU’s second in the incoming group. Williams announced his verbal commitment to the Orange instead of Temple and Buffalo in June.Not only is he Cherry Hill West’s starting quarterback, safety and placekicker, but Williams also occasionally lines up as a slot receiver and as a cornerback. He also returns kickoffs and punts for the Lions. For a player who was sidelined four weeks with a pulled hamstring a year ago, the idea of playing essentially every snap might not be so enticing, but the potential of re-injury doesn’t diminish how much the Lions like to utilize his versatility.“I’ll do anything that I have to and more for my team,” Williams said. “Now that I’m healthy, I have coaches and players pushing me every day. I’m back to 100 percent now and I’m confident running full speed.“I like having the ball in the open field. I think I’m a pretty decent weapon with the ball in my hands.”Last season, Williams bounced back from his injury in grand style. In his second game back, the quarterback threw a touchdown pass, ran for two scores, caught a 47-yard touchdown and returned a punt 62 yards to the end zone.Yet Wright’s favorite Williams highlight comes from a team practice at the end of last year.Lined up at cornerback, Williams read a play that couldn’t have been much farther away from where he was. He broke off his coverage, sprinted across the field, jumped and perfectly timed a one-handed interception, keeping his feet in bounds.“Everyone just sat there with their mouth wide open,” Wright said. “He just flipped the ball to my coach that was right there, went back and got ready for the next play like it was no big deal.”Cherry Hill West defensive backs coach Tyree Jackson hasn’t seen many athletes quite like Williams.He hadn’t ever seen a slot receiver facing double coverage take a slant 60 yards for a touchdown, before Williams. Jackson said he’s added an improved, more aggressive tackling technique to an already outstanding skill set.The 5-foot-10 Williams said he expects to be a good fit with the Syracuse defense, especially in defensive back blitzes. Williams said he sets the edge well when he blitzes, and he’s confident his hands and footwork allow him to cover any receiver he’s paired against.Williams reads offenses well, his coaches said. If a receiver is quick enough to pick up a few steps on him, Williams’ explosiveness allows him to catch up and make a play on the ball.“He’s built like no one else,” Jackson said. “This past week, we played against the No. 1 receiver — supposedly — in the state.“Shut him down.”Timber Creek wide receiver Adonis Jennings, a four-star Rutgers commit, went into Friday’s matchup against the Lions with 23 receptions, 443 yards and six touchdowns to his name through just two games.The Chargers steamrolled Cherry Hill West by 24 points, but Jennings, shadowed by Williams, finished with just two catches for a measly 10 yards.Wright imagines Williams will have no less success when he joins the Orange next year.“I’ll match him one-on-one with anyone in South Jersey, and he’s going to win,” Wright said. “The kid, to his credit, has worked his butt off to put himself in this position. He has a goal in mind, he’s prepared to make the sacrifices to accomplish those goals.” Comments
Comments Published on February 20, 2019 at 9:03 pm Contact Matthew: email@example.com | @MatthewGut21 Finally, a fast start. Finally, momentum before intermission. The Carrier Dome roared when Syracuse took a 16-point lead in the first half over a ranked opponent. Everything that didn’t go right last week clicked: ball movement and dribble penetration against Louisville’s pack-line, tight defense. Oshae Brissett’s bounce-back. A balanced offense that was absent week ago in a blowout loss to unranked-North Carolina State.On Wednesday night at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse played as well as it has in the past four weeks, dictating tempo and forcing the Cardinals to resort to outside shots. No. 18 Louisville (18-9, 9-5 Atlantic Coast) created open 3-pointers. Some were contested. But they shot a dismal 21.4 from deep against the 2-3 zone in SU’s (18-8, 9-4) 69-49 victory, the Orange’s third Top 25 win of the season. Junior guard Elijah Hughes led SU with 18 points, while Brissett added 16, Buddy Boeheim had 14 and Tyus Battle had 11 in front of 22,988 fans.“Our defense was really good right from the beginning,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I thought we covered their shooters and made them take tough shots inside. At the end of the day, in the middle there, they missed probably five or six shots that they would normally make. We took advantage of that.”The victory bolsters Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament resume, improving the Orange to 9-4 — their fastest route to nine conference wins in five years. For Syracuse, the first two ranked wins came on the road, at Ohio State and at Duke. The latest came Wednesday night, three days ahead of a rematch against the top-ranked Blue Devils in the Carrier Dome. The win over UofL doesn’t lessen the magnitude of the expected record-breaking crowd for Saturday, but it does boost SU’s NCAA Tournament hopes and position in the ACC standings.With a week of rest — “it really helped us,” Boeheim said — SU looked to regroup after a 73-58 loss at North Carolina State, against whom the Orange shot 35 percent from the field and just 20 percent from deep. Offensive stagnancy doomed SU. But players turned the time off into an advantage. “I forgot about it as soon as it ended, honestly,” Brissett said of the NCSU loss. Against UofL, instead, the Orange came out firing, and hit shots one after the other. They shot just 38.6 percent, but they won the rebounding battle and limited the Cardinals’ second chances.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith five contests left on the slate — three against ranked teams and two on the road — the Orange won’t have an easy road toward wins. “The gauntlet,” as senior point guard Frank Howard put it, has begun in earnest. But the first night of the rest of SU’s season didn’t look anything like a week prior because the Orange’s ability to dominate a Louisville team that once held a 23-point lead on No. 1 Duke shows SU’s progression since its loss at NCSU. It was a night when SU fans felt comfortable enough to put on their coats and leave — with five minutes remaining, the Orange up 20.“We knew there was a lot of gaps in their press,” Brissett said, “so we wanted to get the open guys into the middle and down the sideline.”The extra rest benefited Battle and Hughes, whose production had diminished in recent weeks. Hughes averaged 15.2 points per game through SU’s first 19 contests, but just 8.5 points over his last six. He shot 4 for 12 against Louisville.Louisville’s pack-line defense didn’t prevent Syracuse from dribble penetration. While the Orange couldn’t attack Virginia Tech’s similarly up-tight defense, they found crevices against UofL. High ball screens setup openings. Shooters caught passes on the perimeter in rhythm. Hughes was one of several beneficiaries. Behind a remodeled, new-look offense SU commanded a 35-23 halftime lead. SU had hit 8-of-9 free throws and scored six fast-break points Battle scored his 1,540th career point, surpassing SU associate head coach Adrian Autry to become the program’s 20th-highest scorer of all time.Despite a sluggish start to the second half, the Orange kept plodding along, and the shooting bug that swarmed SU last week kept smacking the Cardinals in the face. Passes through the high post, then to the baseline cutter, were there, but SU had sealed off any room for inside moves when UofL bigs caught the ball near the basket.Out of a Louisville timeout, Battle wasted no time to take a chance. With SU up 10, he gambled and jumped in a passing lane. He intercepted a lazy pass and dunked at the other end, all by himself. Louisville head coach Chris Mack placed his hands on his hips and stared straight ahead.Shortly thereafter, Syracuse pushed its lead back to 17 with a Buddy Boeheim 3. The building rocked. A minute later, Boeheim stepped into a 3 from just off the top of the key. All net. SU’s lead had swelled to 18, and the Orange were well on their way to their fourth win in their last six games.“We moved the ball well,” Boeheim said. “Marek (Dolezaj) was huge for us on defense. Oshae was playing like he did last year and just got going.”In the postgame locker room last week at NC State, while Howard was packing his belongings, the room fell quiet. He was one of the last players yet to walk out toward the team bus. He summarized the loss and SU’s state: “You can let a loss like this drag on you and mess up your next two games,” he said, “or you can build on it and come back strong.”Syracuse chose the latter in a double-digit win, an outcome that functioned as a reminder of the type of team the Orange can be. Time and again, Boeheim has emphasized that Syracuse doesn’t need a better plan. He’s echoed several iterations of the phrase, “We have a lot of work to do,” throughout the season, and Wednesday represented the strongest example in recent weeks that SU had done it.
