Syracuse men’s basketball could have a versatile duo at point guard

first_img Published on November 14, 2016 at 2:19 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds While Boeheim said he doesn’t think he’ll use Howard and Gillon together all that much, both players cited the benefits of it. Howard said it would be useful against teams that press a lot like North Carolina and Louisville since having two players on the court that usually handle the ball could negate the opposing defense.“Playing with (Howard) makes the game easier on me because normally I have to do more things when it comes to making a play,” Gillon said on Friday. “But when I have somebody on the other end who can shoot, which he showed tonight, and that can handle the ball, it really gives me an outlet because you can drive and it spaces the floor as well at the same time.”Whether Howard and Gillon get more minutes together remains to be seen, but on Friday night, Boeheim said, “I thought they really played exceptionally well.”What was once perceived as a weakness entering the season has almost immediately transformed into a strength. Comments After eight and a half minutes against Colgate, Howard impressed with six assists and three points. But then came in Gillon, who put up four assists and two points in the next 6:36.“We bring different things to the table,” Howard said. “I get things started then he comes in, switches the pace up. … I think we feed well off each other”During part of last season, Howard had mononucleosis. His weight dropped to around 170 pounds. He struggled taking on defenders in the lane and he resorted to passing. But after an offseason in which he improved his jump shot and bulked up to 205 pounds, Howard is better suited to fully embrace the point guard role.Gillon’s instinct on the court is to find a way to the rim. While growing up, his father had him play football to try and make him tougher. Over the years, he’s improved his jump shot and grown more well-rounded as a point guard, averaging 3.8 assists per game last year at Colorado State and shooting 33.3 percent on 3-pointers.“He’s more like me at the same time. I’m just a little taller. He can facilitate, he can score,” Howard said. “… I can come in, keep the pace, get guys involved and he can do the same thing. I think we’re kind of a reflection of each other, just a little different.” For a minute and 38 seconds on Friday night, Syracuse flashed all of its potential at point guard. As head coach Jim Boeheim hinted earlier in the week, Frank Howard and John Gillon took the Carrier Dome floor at the same time.On the Orange’s second possession with the lineup, Gillon found Howard drifting into open space on the right wing and delivered him the ball. Howard sunk his second 3 of the season opener, topping his total from all of last year.On SU’s next possession, Howard penetrated, drawing the defense in and he found Gillon at the top of the key. Gillon knocked down the 3 and held one finger up in the air to celebrate.Howard and Gillon played together for a total of 4 minutes, 9 seconds in No. 19 Syracuse’s (1-0) season-opening win on Friday. Aside from playing together, something Boeheim said likely won’t happen much in the future, the two players’ skill sets provide a weapon at point guard that Syracuse has rarely had in recent memory. Against Colgate, they combined for 24 points and 15 assists.“It’s important for those guys to play well. It helps everybody,” Boeheim said. “… That’s a lot of assists out of one position and they scored as well.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe 6-foot-5 Howard has improved his shooting in the offseason and prides himself on being able to control the game from the point. He said he was affected by Boeheim telling him not to shoot much and often worried that if he shot, he’d be subbed out.Gillon, listed at just 6 feet, has a propensity to use his quickness to get to the rim. His speed also helps Syracuse in the full-court press, which Boeheim used while he was in the game on Friday.MORE COVERAGE: Tyler Lydon works through struggles after two-point performanceOshae Brissett becomes first member in SU’s 2017 classWhat we learned from SU’s win over Colgate Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Mayor scolds Benson

first_imgNEW ORLEANS — Mayor Ray Nagin disparaged Saints owner Tom Benson on Wednesday for working with San Antonio officials to permanently keep the NFL team in Texas. The mayor’s comments came after the departures of two top Saints executives who were supportive of keeping the Saints in Louisiana. Nagin is concerned that San Antonio officials said publicly that Benson is working with them to relocate the franchise to Texas. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said he had no comment on the matter. “For them to be openly talking to other cities about moving is disrespectful to the citizens of New Orleans, disrespectful to the Saints fans who have hung in with this franchise through 30-something years under very trying times,” Nagin said. The Saints joined the NFL in 1967. In 1986, Benson was part of an ownership group that bought the team to ensure it would stay in Louisiana. Benson eventually bought out other members of the group. During Benson’s ownership, the state of Louisiana has built him a new headquarters, including spending $6.75 million for an indoor practice field in 2003. The state also has paid for repeated improvements to the Louisiana Superdome at Benson’s insistence during the past two decades. On Monday night, Benson fired Arnold Fielkow, the team’s top business executive since 2000. Fielkow had overseen a 36-game sellout streak at the Superdome and negotiated an unprecedented stadium lease that called for the state to pay Benson $187 million in direct subsidies over 10 years. “We want our Saints, we may not want the owner back,” Nagin said while attending the reopening of Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter. “I’m ready to go to the NFL and to (commissioner Paul) Tagliabue and say, ‘Give us the Cleveland plan,”‘ Nagin added, referring to the league awarding Cleveland an expansion team almost immediately after the Browns moved to Baltimore after the 1995 season. “Whatever the Saints want to do, you let them leave, but they can’t take our logo, they can’t take our name, and you give us a promise to give us a franchise when this city’s back.” center_img But Fielkow has said he believed the Saints needed to be leaders in New Orleans’ rebuilding process after Hurricane Katrina and repeatedly praised Saints fans in Louisiana as the best and most loyal in the NFL. Fielkow has since said that stance led to his dismissal. On Tuesday, Conrad Kowal, senior director of marketing and business development, also resigned. Nagin called Benson’s recent actions a “doggone shame.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Late Sidwell goal rescues point for Fulham

first_imgFulham 2 Everton 2Substitute Steve Sidwell netted a last-minute equaliser to rescue a point for Fulham.The outstanding Marouane Fellaini struck twice in the second half and appeared to have given Everton a deserved victory.But after Dimitar Berbatov had failed to connect with Sascha Reither’s right-wing cross, Sidwell crept in behind the Bulgarian to score at the far post.Fulham made the perfect start, going ahead when Bryan Ruiz’s seventh-minute free-kick was pushed onto the post by keeper Tim Howard and then rebounded into the net after hitting the unfortunate American.But Everton, who have now recovered from going behind in five consecutive league matches, responded strongly and should have been level by half-time.Phil Jagielka’s deflected shot flew inches wide of Mark Schwarzer’s right-hand post before Nikica Jelavic missed a great chance to equalise, lifting the ball over the bar following a mistake by Chris Baird.Fulham had another lucky escape early in the second half when both John Heitanga and Fellaini, with the goal at their mercy, could not get a touch to Jagielka’s left-wing free-kick.But Fellaini atoned soon afterwards, firing home from the edge of the six-yard box after Kevin Mirallas had pulled the ball back from the right.And the Belgian talisman went one better on 71 minutes, holding off Aaron Hughes to chest down Jagielka’s long ball before smashing an unstoppable shot into the corner.Fellaini almost netted a late third, his effort deflecting off Brede Hangeland and onto the post, with Steven Naismith’s attempt to force in the rebound blocked on the line by Hughes.Schwarzer then had to produce a fine save to keep out Fellaini’s classy volley from Naismith’s right-wing cross.It proved to be a crucial stop because, having dominated much of the game, Everton switched off at the back and Sidwell pounced to score his third goal of the season.Fulham: Schwarzer, Riether, Hughes, Hangeland, Riise (Dejagah 59), Duff, Diarra (Petric 75), Baird, Kacaniklic (Sidwell 68), Ruiz, Berbatov.Subs not used: Stockdale, Senderos, Karagounis, Rodallega. 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

YYCs International Terminal opened one year ago

first_imgIt’s been one year since Calgary’s airport opened a new international terminal.In the last 12 months, YYC has welcomed 21,000 flights, 3.7 million pieces of baggage, and 4.8 million passengers.“I think early on we received feedback and we worked on that and we actioned it,” Dean Paddock, Director of Communications said, acknowledging there has been a bit of turbulence.A common complaint is getting around on time due to the size of the space.“There didn’t seem to be enough places to eat, places to get coffee, that has improved, but it is problematic, if you’re having to connect from a domestic flight because it is so spread out,” one passenger tells CityNews.Paddock said they’ve been working at it.“We have a really unique to Canada solution, which is a Canadian-built, custom designed electric vehicle. These shuttles move our passengers through our connections corridor at a rate of about 3,500 people per day,” he said.“We worked with airlines and we received customer feedback to ensure that our link shuttles are moving at the proper pace when flights are arriving and when flights are departing to ensure that our wait times are actually very low.”Paddock said the airport is very pleased with new routes added on WestJet and Air Canada, and the addition of two new airlines to the terminal: Aeromexico, and Hainan Airlines.last_img read more
