UW’s defense starts with Davis

first_imgLaura Hill/The Badger HeraldWisconsin women’s basketball guard Jade Davis possesses the key characteristics of a defensive-minded player: intensity, energy, aggressiveness and a sense of pride in her ability to defend. The junior out of Lone Tree, Colorado may not have the offensive statistics that senior stars Alyssa Karel, Lin Zastrow and Tara Steinbauer have, but she is one of the Badgers’ strongest defensive players. Davis, who spent part of the year coming off the bench, has solidified a starting role and is often faced with the task of guarding the best players in the Big Ten. “She’s arguably our best defender; we 90 percent of the time put her on the other team’s best player,” assistant coach John Barnes said. “She’s done a great job of taking that role, of trying to shut down the opposing team’s big scorer … We expect her to play great defense and make open shots.”Davis averages 4.5 points per game, the lowest of any starter, but ranks second on the team with 1.14 steals per game. Her defensive intensity is quickly apparent in any of Wisconsin’s games, as she can always be heard yelling “ball” from the sidelines.While other player’s measure their performances on how many points they score or how many rebounds they collect, Davis focuses on the statistics of the player she defended. Her list of achievements include keeping Purdue’s star guard Brittany Rayburn from scoring a single point in their matchup earlier this year.“I pride myself on defense sometimes,” Davis said. “Some people feel good scoring 17 points; I feel good when [the player I’m defending] doesn’t score 17 points. So I think there’s just some sort of difference there.”The junior guard has truly had a breakout year as she has averaged more points and almost doubled her minutes from last season. Setting career highs in essentially every category, Davis seems to have found a comfortable role for the Badgers this season. Having started just one game coming into this year, UW fans may not have expected to see such improvement in Davis. However, coaches and teammates had confidence that she was ready to become a major contributor for the Badgers. “In preseason…we expected her to be in this role,” Barnes said. “She’s improved on [her game] throughout the year, and that’s the way you win the Big Ten, is if you can get better every day in practice, and learn from your mistakes and use the game situations to get you better. And hopefully at the end of the year you’re playing your best basketball, and that’s the way she’s headed.”Like many players coming in as freshmen, Davis admits that her expectations may have been a little ambitious coming in. A player who won three state championships in high school, she averaged just 14.1 minutes a game during her first year in a Wisconsin uniform. “Every player comes in as a freshman thinking, ‘Oh I’m going to get this, I’m going to get that,’” Davis said. “I mean, it was kind of a reality check at first, but I think I’ve kept working, and I just wanted to be better every single day. So I think that’s helped.” Much of Davis’ development can be traced to the game-like intensity that she maintains during practice. A fierce competitor, her teammates realize that there is never an easy matchup if she is facing up with them. Although she may not fill up the box score, it is hard to deny that Davis’ presence on the court encourages the whole team to play strong defense. “She comes to every practice just battling, and just working as hard as she possibly can,” sophomore guard Taylor Wurtz said. “I think Jade has a really solid defense, and she brings that ‘X-factor’ to our team…Jade’s a hard worker, and I expected great things from her.”Beyond her defense, Davis is one of the most enthusiastic and vocal members of the Badgers’ squad, something that certainly has a positive effect on her teammates. A crucial aspect of her defense, the junior guard seems glued to the ball and always has a hand in the defender’s face. On a team that is built around defense, Davis seems to be the perfect player to have on the Wisconsin roster. Her love for stopping the best players from scoring appears to have rubbed off on her teammates, and since she has become a regular starter, the Badgers have been winning a lot more games.“You don’t want Jade to guard you,” Wurtz said. “She gets up in your shorts, and she just plays great defense and she’s always talking out there too, which communication is a big part of defense.”The rest of the Big Ten is hoping it won’t be guarded by Davis, too.last_img read more

Scheer Mulcair join to press Trudeau on official appointments process

first_imgOTTAWA – The leaders of both the Conservatives and New Democrats say the prime minister needs a new system for choosing officers of Parliament.In a joint letter, Andrew Scheer and Tom Mulcair say they want Justin Trudeau to clarify how he plans to handle other vacant positions in the wake of the controversy around his pick for official languages commissioner.Madeleine Meilleur withdrew her candidacy this week, saying she didn’t think she would be able to do the job properly given the uproar since her name was put forth by the Liberal government.Meilleur, a former Liberal member of the Ontario legislature and provincial cabinet minister, told a House of Commons committee she’d talked to Trudeau’s advisers about her interest in the job prior to the nomination, though the government disputes that.The Liberals had said Meilleur’s selection was based on merit, experience and a track record of defending francophone rights and reiterated that Thursday in defending both her and the process.But Trudeau has tainted the process of selecting what are supposed to be completely independent officers of Parliament, Scheer and Mulcair wrote in their Thursday letter.“By attempting to appoint someone with such a highly partisan background to a position which is supposed to be free, not just of partisanship, but even the hint of being susceptible to political influence or partisan interests, you have shown a great lack of judgment on the role of an officer of Parliament and its interaction with Parliament,” the letter says.“As leaders of the recognized parties in the House, we demand that you refrain from turning such appointments, which are supposed to be non-partisan, into havens for political patronage.”The two leaders want Trudeau to follow the law and consult them about future appointments, but the Liberals offered no signs Thursday that’s in the cards.“Our government promised Canadians a rigorous, open and merit-based process for public appointments and we are keeping that commitment,” Sean Casey, parliamentary secretary to the Heritage minister, said during question period.The opposition said the Meilleur appointment could have been a watershed.“You can bet that had this appointment occurred, the dominoes would have fallen quickly to fill the other vacant, non-partisan positions with Liberal insiders,” Conservative MP John Brassard said.Casey said more information on next steps to fill the languages commissioner position would be unveiled in the coming days.In addition to the official languages commissioner, there are seven others traditionally referred to as “offices of Parliament,” known as such for their arms-length and independent work assisting Parliament and holding government and bureaucrats to account.The Liberals are currently looking for replacements for the access to information commissioner, the conflict of interest and ethics commissioner, the lobbying commissioner and the chief electoral officer, in addition to the languages commissioner.The three other posts — auditor general, commissioner of public integrity and privacy commissioner — have a few years left on their termslast_img read more

NonBJP opposition parties unlikely to meet on May 21

first_imgAmaravati: The non-BJP opposition parties are unlikely to meet on May 21 as Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee has requested TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu to fix a date after the declaration of results on May 23 for it, at the convenience of other parties.”Our leader is yet to take a call on this. It depends on the outcome of the elections. The meeting, though, is bound to happen after the 23rd,” a member of the TDP politburo said here on Monday. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghDuring their meeting on Thursday last, the AP Chief Minister reportedly suggested to his West Bengal counterpart that a meeting of the non-BJP opposition parties be convened on May 21 to discuss the post-poll strategy. She, however, expressed reservations over this, citing the impending counting of votes on May 23. TDP sources here aver that Mamata Banerjee expressed apprehensions over the safety of the EVMs stored in strong rooms across the country and, as such, there was a need for all opposition parties to keep a constant vigil to thwart the BJP’s “nefarious plans.” Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadShe also felt that opposition leaders should remain in their respective states to monitor the counting arrangements, as well as safety of the strong rooms. “Hence, she wanted the opposition meeting to be held after May 23. Anyway, the opposition meeting has to happen after the results are out,” the TDP leader said. Meanwhile, Chandrababu Naidu continued his tirade against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying a certain despondency has crept in in the latter. “His latest utterances are an indication of Modis despondency. He is talking about Rajiv Gandhi, who died 28 years ago. He is also trying to derive mileage from the sacrifices of Army men,” the TDP chief said at a meeting of the partys Nandyal Lok Sabha constituency leaders here Monday.last_img read more
