You have to then be objective and see what reality has in store for us.“There is a gap and it’s a difficult one to bridge, as I arrived with two clubs (Juventus and Napoli) who have been building together for years.“We have just started our journey, so with hard work and clarity can improve to become competitive and make our fans proud of us. We need a clear mission for the present and what the future can become.“You can only become protagonists with hard work. We mustn’t set limits for ourselves, but at the same time be honest and realistic.

Zion Williamson Packed A Lot Of Greatness Into A Short College Career

September 28, 2019 0 Comments

College basketball’s biggest weekend will be missing college basketball’s biggest star. After Michigan State knocked off Duke 68-67 on Sunday to advance to the Final Four, the Blue Devils are out of the NCAA Tournament — and that means we won’t see forward Zion Williamson again until the NBA draft. (Presumably.) CBS had invested a lot in following Williamson’s every move during the tournament, and with good cause. By at least one metric, Williamson had the best season in recent college history. But that’s all in the past now. So how weird is it that Zion won’t be present for the tournament’s finale in Minneapolis? And what can we make of his brief, brilliant stay in the college game, possibly as one of the final megastars of the one-and-done era?Williamson has spent most of the season as the heavy betting favorite to win the men’s Naismith college player of the year award. His money-line odds were as high as -700 (that’s roughly 88 percent without removing the vig) before his midseason injury, and they currently sit around -300 (75 percent). Other players could potentially take the honor when it is announced April 7, but it would be a surprise if Williamson were not the winner.If Zion does pick up the award, he will become only the third freshman (joining Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis) and 12th underclassman to do so in the history of the honor. It’s an elite award to earn, having been won by the likes of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton and Michael Jordan, in addition to KD and AD. But it hasn’t exactly been out of the ordinary for the Final Four to move on without the nation’s best player. Through 2018, the Naismith award winner has seen his team make the Final Four just 48 percent of the time — meaning roughly half of college basketball’s very best stars since 19691The first year the award was given out. have watched the Final Four from home. Williamson wouldn’t be the first to fit that description, and he likely wouldn’t be the last.But even among players of the year, Williamson would be unusually good — particularly by the standards of some recent winners:2We went back to 1996 in the table below because that’s the earliest season for which Sports-Reference.com calculates its win shares player-value metric. 2010Evan TurnerOhio StateGJr.6.8.247 2012Anthony DavisKentuckyCFr.✓9.9.310 2015Frank KaminskyWisconsinFSr.✓9.8.299 The 2019 Naismith winner will be announced April 7Sources: Wikipedia, Sports-Reference.com 2013Trey BurkeMichiganGSo.✓8.6.249 2014Doug McDermottCreightonFSr.7.7.261 1996Marcus CambyMassachusettsCJr.✓8.1.320 2019Zion WilliamsonDukeFFr.8.3.335 2002Jason WilliamsDukeGJr.6.3.213 1999Elton BrandDukeFSo.✓10.0.350 Zion’s place among Naismith Award winnersFor Zion Williamson and Naismith College Player of the Year winners since 1996, team Final Four status and win share statistics 1998Antawn JamisonNorth CarolinaFJr.✓8.3.271 2007Kevin DurantTexasFFr.8.8.280 2011Jimmer FredetteBrigham YoungGSr.8.5.256 On a per-40-minute basis, Williamson would have the most win shares of any Naismith winner since Andrew Bogut in 2005 (Bogut went No. 1 overall in the NBA draft that summer) and the fifth-most since 1996, period. And unlike some of the other names on the list above, Williamson wasn’t a one-man show dragging a bunch of weak teammates along. Duke ranked fourth in our pre-tournament Elo ratings — higher than the team of anyone ranked ahead of Zion in win shares per 40 minutes except Elton Brand (whose own Blue Devils ranked first going into the 1999 tourney).In that regard, maybe the best comparison for Williamson’s freshman season was that of Davis on the 2012 Kentucky Wildcats — a stellar, standout individual year on a highly ranked squad full of other elite NBA prospects. But while Davis got to the Final Four and ultimately won the NCAA championship, Williamson and Duke fell short, relegating him to a separate list of freshman phenoms — one including Durant and Michael Beasley, whose individual efficiency in 2008 was (amazingly) even greater than Zion’s this year — on teams that couldn’t get to the tournament’s third weekend.The end of Duke’s season won’t diminish the personal success Williamson had during his one NCAA season, nor will it affect his presumptive status as the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. And few fans outside Durham will be crying for Duke, which had its chances to close out Michigan State late on Sunday but was unable to do so (in large part because Williamson took only one shot in the game’s final six-and-a-half minutes). Even so, the Final Four won’t be quite the same without Williamson’s dizzying array of highlight-reel drives, dunks and swats. Instead, the Season of Zion Williamson will come to an end with Zion Williamson nowhere in sight. 1997Tim DuncanWake ForestCSr.10.4.367 2018Jalen BrunsonVillanovaGJr.✓7.7.241 2006J. J.

Mens hockey Ohio State completes sweep of Robert Morris with 31 win

Ohio State redshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo during the game against Ryerson on Sep. 30. Ohio State lost 7-4. Credit: Wyatt Crosher | Lantern ReporterTwo late goals by sophomore forward Tanner Lacyznski were enough for Ohio State (5-1-2, 1-1-0-0 in Big Ten) to win a defensive battle 3-1 against Robert Morris (2-5-0, 2-3-0 in Atlantic Hockey).The Buckeyes found the net late in the third period on a goal by Laczynski off an assist by senior defenseman Janik Möser. Laczynski scored again, this time on an empty net, to ice the game and secure the fourth straight victory for Ohio State.The goalies made most of the highlights on the night, as neither netminder gave up a goal for over forty minutes. Redshirt junior Sean Romeo made 13 saves in the victory. Senior goalie Andrew Pikul stopped 37 in the losing effort.The first period ended without a goal, and featured equally low shot totals out of both teams. Ohio State ended the opening frame leading in shots 7-6.While the score remained 0-0 after the second period, the shot totals told a much different story than in the first. Ohio State outshot Robert Morris 15-3 in the second and had three attempts on the power play, but could not find the back of the net against Pikul.Ohio State found a way to break the scoreless tie in the third period on a goal by sophomore defenseman Matt Miller. Senior forward Matthew Weis and freshman defenseman Michael Rounds earned assists on the play. The assist was Rounds’ first career point as a Buckeye.The Colonials countered six minutes later on the power play with a goal by junior forward Alex Tonge off assists by senior forward Brady Ferguson and redshirt junior Michael Louria.Robert Morris almost took the lead on a goal by Luke Lynch five minutes later, but the play was overturned on goaltender interference, and the score remained tied at one.Ohio State returns to conference play next weekend with two home games against No. 8 Notre Dame at the Schottenstein Center. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. read more

Brighton manager warns of Danny Ings

A classic number nine that’s a hold-up player or a classic number nine that’s a runner,” Hughton told The Argus.“I think with him he has very good attributes in the forward area. If you want someone who can run behind, that’s very much him with his pace.”“If you want someone who can link a bit more, play a little bit more like a number ten, he can do that,” he added.“I heard one of his interviews and he spoke very, very well about his time at Liverpool. Even though he didn’t play as many games as he would have liked because of injury, I think his experience at Liverpool has helped his all-around game.
