first_img… says players gelling nicely By Clifton Ross AHEAD of the 3rd annual Inter-Guiana Games (IGG) which gets underway from February 25 in French Guiana, national volleyball coach Levi Nedd said he wants to use the games to assess the next crop of players who will form the core of the national team.Nedd, who is also the president of the Guyana Volleyball Federation (GVF) told Chronicle Sport yesterday, that he was quite optimistic about the Guyanese players giving a good account of themselves, come next week when the IGG commences.“I feel confident in the males and I know the females will do better this year. We are strong with our attack and I’m excited over the males because I’ve seen some improvemmts in them. We did a lot of gelling and we had training sessions which we went through to make sure everyone is ready,” Nedd stated.The two teams, 12 males and 10 females have undergone weeks of preparation in Berbice and in Demerara. Nedd, regarding the possibility of the females playing better than the previous years said he expected good performances from this batch of ladies.“I think the females will do well this year because they have continued their training and developmental works in order to improve their game. I think we have everything in place, I just want us to work on our attack and service reception while the other areas like blocks will come into play,” the coach pointed out.A former Guyana volleyball player in his youthful days, the GVF president said overall, this year’s IGG will be used as a measuring stick for players who could possibly be the next batch of national stars for Guyana going forward; especially with the GVF heavily scouting for players.“It’s extremely important that the next generation for Guyana stars to get proper nurturing and with this team this year, I’m really looking forward to making them the nucleus of Guyana’s volleyball team for the future,”  Nedd ended.Meanwhile, the coach said the players will continue their individual training in Berbice and in the city as they prepare to wing out for French Guiana next week ahead of the 2020 IGG which ends on March 1.last_img read more

John Gillon named ACC Player of the Week

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 6, 2017 at 3:20 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Syracuse fifth-year point guard John Gillon has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week, the conference announced Monday afternoon. It’s the first time a Syracuse player has won a weekly conference award this season.Gillon scored 43 points and dished out nine assists in a 100-93 overtime win at North Carolina State on Wednesday. His 43 points tied for fourth most in program history and were the most scored by an SU player since current assistant coach Gerry McNamara scored 43 in the 2004 NCAA Tournament against Brigham Young. Gillon’s nine 3-pointers tied a single-game program record,  beating out two-time NBA MVP Steph Curry for the PNC Arena single-game record.In Saturday’s upset of then-No. 9 Virginia, Gillon scored only six points and tallied four assists while turning the ball over four times. He also missed the only 3-pointer he took. Still, it was enough to finish the week with averages of 24.5 points and 6.5 assists to take home player of the week honors. N.C. State freshman point guard Dennis Smith Jr. won ACC Rookie of the Week, partly because of his triple-double against Syracuse.The Orange (15-9, 7-4 ACC) visits Clemson Tuesday at 8 p.m. with a chance to get its fifth consecutive win.

Syracuse struggles to score despite being the most accurate team in the country

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 26, 2018 at 9:44 pm Contact Eric: erblack@syr.edu | @esblack34 When Michael Lantry’s header bounced off the bottom of the crossbar late in the game against Virginia on Friday, John-Austin Ricks was there for the rebound — but his point-blank shot sailed high. Both players put their heads in their hands.Down 2-0 in the game, the Orange had turned up its aggressiveness in the second half to the tune of nine shots attempted to the Cavaliers’ two. One of UVA’s shots found the back of the net. None of SU’s nine got through. Despite putting four shots on goal in the second half alone, two more than Virginia totaled the entire game, Syracuse couldn’t convert. It was shutout for the first time since last October.The Orange (3-3-1, 0-2 ACC) hasn’t had trouble getting its attempts on target all season, notching at least three shots on goal in each of its seven contests. Its 56 percent shot accuracy leads the country, but among the 10-most accurate teams in the country, SU has the second-fewest goals. Syracuse is getting good looks game after game, but it’s struggling to find positive results from it.“We’ve had the opportunities,” senior Hugo Delhommelle said after the Virginia game. “We don’t finish them. They had a few chances and scored. That’s soccer. We are dominating the teams, but we are not winning games. That’s our problem.”Laura Angle | Digital Design EditorAdvertisementThis is placeholder textAgainst Colgate on Monday, it was more of the same. Midway through the second overtime period of the 1-1 draw, Djimon Johnson leaked away from the pack behind him to receive a pass before getting his shot deflected. Tajon Buchanan followed it up from point-blank range but sent it high. He leaned back, arching his back before coming forward into a dejected squat.Nearly four minutes later, SU-leader in shots on goal Ryan Raposo received a ball from Delhommelle near the right side of the goal. But his shot was off target, too, prompting the freshman to collapse to the ground in disappointment.The Orange put up 13 total shots, four more than the Raiders, of which five were on goal. But at the end of the night, SU had just one goal to show for it.“We need to just keep those quality shots,” Raposo said. “(We’ll) find throughout the season that a lot of those are gonna go in the back of the net.”Raposo and his teammates practice their accuracy primarily through drills like three-on-two situations.Three attackers take on two backpedaling defenders to simulate a transition opportunity, passing back and forth until a good shot becomes available. Once a shot is taken, the attacking team moves off the field while the two defenders add a player and move to offense. Two new defenders take the field, and the drill starts again. Practicing in live conditions improves the in-game accuracy.“We’re just trying to create the best chance,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “We talk about, as a group, if you can get shots on target, and if you can get shots on target in the penalty area, you’ve got more chance of scoring goals.”For senior midfielder Jonathan Hagman, shooting accurately is about “finding a good feel.” If it doesn’t come during a practice drill, Hagman will hang around afterward, get a few balls and shoot repeatedly until he finds it.Raposo is more detail-oriented. The freshman finds his range by setting up 12 balls on the left side of the goal, where he plays as an attacking midfielder. A cone is placed in front of the balls to dribble at, cut by and shoot past. Then he runs back and does it again, mimicking situations that may happen during the game.During pregame warmups, the offensive group shoots off passes from assistant coach Matt Verni in a mini-competition.“You don’t wanna be the guy that misses the net,” Raposo said. “It’s all in our head. You’re keeping track of how many goals you have … at the end of the day, you just want to score the most.”Syracuse has attempted more shots on target than its opponent in five of its seven games this season, but SU’s record in those contests is just 2-3. The Orange’s 42 shots on goal is eight more than the amount it’s allowed, but SU’s still even in goals.The Orange want more shots, though. Despite outshooting its opponents thus far, SU believes it can do better. Syracuse is currently last in the ACC with 75 total shots, 60 less as conference-leader Wake Forest.“You have to hit the target to score a goal, so this (accuracy) is a good thing,” Hagman said. “But … if we’re taking five and all of them are on target it’s not good. Coach talks about getting nine shots on target per game, statistically, that’s when you win games, that’s what we’re searching for.” Commentslast_img read more
