Alaba Boost for Bayern ahead of Liverpool Clash

first_imgThe defender has played 23 Bundesliga and six Champions League matches this season, and Kovac believes Alaba whose parents are Nigerians is ready to contribute on Wednesday (today).“So far, I assume he’s ready to go,” the Bayern Munich boss said.Coman, 22, on the other hand has missed each of Bayern’s last two matches as he’s battled a hamstring issue.He has dealt with a number of knee issues throughout his Bayern career, and even hinted in December that he could retire if he was hit with another serious injury.However, the recent hamstring issue proved not to be serious and he will be ready for Wednesday’s match.“He (Coman) handled the maximum load in training on Monday, so he is fit,” Kovac told reporters ahead of the game yesterday.“I’m very happy. That gives us an alternative, one more dimension.”Kovac added that “we have to look” at whether Coman was fit to start or would be more capable with coming off the bench in a more limited role.Kovac sees Wednesday’s clash as a “highlight game” against the “cream of world football”, as Bayern look to seal a spot in the Champions League’s quarter-final round.Bayern have reached that quarter-final round in each of the last eight seasons, last falling in the Round of 16 in 2012 to Inter.In the Bundesliga, they currently sit first in the table as they compete with Borussia Dortmund for the top spot.Bayern maintain a lead on goal difference, with 35 compared to Dortmund’s 33, as the club prepares to take on Mainz on Sunday following the conclusion of their Champions League tie against Liverpool.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram David Alaba and Kingsley Coman are back in the Bayern Munich squad ahead of today’s UEFA Champions League clash with Liverpool, Manager Niko Kovac confirmed yesterday.Bayern and Liverpool played out a 0-0 draw in the opening leg, which took place at Anfield on February 20.Alab is set to return after irritating a tendon issue and has missed two matches.last_img read more

MBB : Brown: UNC Asheville outplayed top-seeded Syracuse, deserved to make NCAA Tournament history

first_imgPITTSBURGH – UNC Asheville head coach Eddie Biedenbach phrased it in a way some of the Syracuse players couldn’t disagree with.‘Syracuse is better than Asheville,’ he said. ‘Tonight, we were better than Syracuse. …These guys played their tails off for 40 minutes and played better than Syracuse. I have all the respect for Jim Boeheim, their team being 31-2. He’s a fantastic coach. They deserve all the recognitions they’ve got this year. (UNC Asheville) was the better team tonight.’Aside from Boeheim, everyone else on both sides agreed. Matt Dickey, J.P. Primm, C.J. Fair, Brandon Triche, the list goes on.UNC Asheville should have done the unthinkable Thursday in Pittsburgh. They should have gone into the record books as the first No. 16 seed ever to take down a No. 1. This Orange squad could play UNC Asheville 100 more times and win every single one of them. In fact, most of those games would likely be far more lopsided than the 72-65 final from Thursday.But in this one game, UNC Asheville deserved to make history.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd Syracuse knows it.‘I say 80 percent of the game they were a better team than us,’ Fair said. ‘They were executing. You could tell they had a great game plan for us coming into the game. And they were knocking down shots. It’s hard to beat a team when they’ve got that confidence, knocking down shots.’When asked if he thought the Bulldogs were the better squad after the game, Boeheim aptly pointed out that the scoreboard should give that answer.But his own players definitely felt otherwise.‘I definitely felt like they were definitely the better team out there,’ said SU’s leading scorer James Southerland. ‘We just picked it up. We had to make an adjustment without Fab and all, but they played their hearts out.’That they did.They played with emotion that an indifferent Syracuse lacked for almost the entire contest. And for much of the game, it was enough.The Bulldogs took a four-point lead into halftime that left SU walking to the locker room with their heads down as the upset-thirsty crowd rained down chants of ‘overrated.’UNC Asheville somehow managed 20 points in the paint despite not playing anyone over 6-foot-5 for more than a few seconds.But ultimately, the Bulldogs couldn’t overcome the Orange.And a blown call or two.‘It’s tough when things don’t go your way,’ Primm said. ‘In college basketball, sometimes you have to play everybody in the building, you know.’Everyone in the country knows.The referees must have been the only people in the arena that didn’t see the ball go straight through Triche’s hands and out of bounds with the Orange clinging to a three-point lead late in the second half. Triche even said he touched the ball, and his only explanation for the call was that maybe the refs held their whistle because he got bumped on the play.There was also the goaltend-that-never-was by Rakeem Christmas at the start of the second half that turned a potential three-point play into a single made free throw.‘We made some mistakes, and it cost us,’ Biedenbach said. ‘… But they made plenty of mistakes and some of them didn’t cost them.’To Syracuse’s credit, it once again found a way to survive. Even if the refs had made those calls, the Orange might still have pulled it off.But that doesn’t mean it deserved to win.SU jacked up 23 3s against a team it should have owned on the interior. The Orange hauled in just one more rebound than the Bulldogs in the entire game.UNC Asheville played with heart and soul that Syracuse didn’t match. That allowed them to make up for their lack of size.But it couldn’t make up for the calls.‘No one thought we were going to be in this game,’ Primm said. ‘We had the game. Like I said, sometimes you get the short end of the stick.’The Bulldogs absolutely did Thursday.Instead of going down in history, UNC Asheville will be the team that almost pulled off the unthinkable for a couple years. After that, everyone will forget this game ever happened.The Bulldogs were the better team and deserved to play Saturday.But in the end, it doesn’t matter. Just ask the Orange. Just ask James Southerland.‘It doesn’t mean anything because we’re advancing to the next round,’ Southerland said.Zach Brown is a staff writer at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Lakers blown out in Denver; Lonzo Ball injures ankle

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs With Rajon Rondo out for a few more weeks and Ball’s status up in the air, the Lakers might be headed for more uncomfortable terrain during their upcoming homestand, which starts Thursday with back-to-back games against Indiana and Dallas. Without Ball, Walton said the team lost ball movement, facilitating a drop from 50 first-half points to just 35 in the second.But the larger issue for the Lakers was a team sense of surrender. As their misses piled up, they felt Denver started playing harder, and they started ball-watching as the Nuggets out-hustled them on the boards. They simply lost their spirit when the shots weren’t falling.Related Articles AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“We stayed in it as much as we could to stop the dam from running over,” LeBron James said, resigned in his corner of the visiting locker room. “But at one point, it just broke open for us. We couldn’t make enough shots, and that team’s very dangerous.”What’s more concerning for the Lakers, however, isn’t even taking the road loss. Starting point guard Lonzo Ball turned his left ankle tripping over Nuggets guard Malik Beasley close to the end of the first half, and immediately went to the locker room. Though he made a go at starting the second half, he was quickly shelved less than three minutes in and did not return.There was some disagreement over the severity of the injury, which the Lakers were relieved to find wasn’t more serious after an X-ray. Ball said he felt he could have played through the second half, but Coach Luke Walton and head trainer Marco Nunez made the decision to sit him after watching Ball shuffle around on his ankle. Said Walton: “It just didn’t feel right to leave him out on the court.”Officially, the Lakers said Ball would be considered day-to-day, with the team anticipating learning more about the injury after flying back to L.A. Ball saw his future as less cloudy.“I’m playing Thursday,” he said afterward, matter-of-factly. No one was immune: Even leading scorer Kyle Kuzma (21 points) was 1 for 7 from the perimeter. James had a season-low 14 points on 5-for-15 shooting, and as the game went on and the Lakers got colder, the Nuggets defense swarmed him. Even when he made the right pass, the Lakers couldn’t hit the shot.“I mean listen: You’re 5 for 35, you ain’t gonna win no games like that,” James said. “It’s that simple.”Still, the Lakers, despite all of their flaws against Denver, focused on the long run. Walton described the loss as “something we’ll work on,” and the locker room veterans seemed to view it the same way.It was the mid-game quit that worried Tyson Chandler the most. When the shots aren’t falling, the veteran center said, there has to be something else keeping the Lakers going.“It can’t be just about hitting shots and feeling good about yourself,” he said. “It has to be all the time. Like, we got to be able to hit teams with waves. That’s the only way we’re going to have real success and try to wear teams down. And if we’re relying on our shots, we’ll have long nights.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers center_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions PreviousLos Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James acknowledges the crowd as he warms up for the team’s NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018, in Denver.

As the third quarter ended, the announcer reiterated anyway: “We’re at 5,280 feet!”There are games when the Denver Nuggets count on the edge, mental or physical, that comes with playing in the Mile-High City and look for that extra bit of separation in the fourth quarter.On Tuesday against the Lakers, the advantage wasn’t necessary.The Lakers (11-9) were gassed long before, in a game of diminishing returns. As time ticked on, the Nuggets (14-7) kept racking up rebounds (plus-22 advantage on the glass) as quickly as the Lakers were missing 3-pointers (5 for 35), and the gap between two teams hoping for a Western Conference breakthrough this season got wider with Denver’s 117-85 victory.

SENORITA STAKES QUOTES-SATURDAY, MAY 4, 2019

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTESKENT DESORMEAUX, MAXIM RATE, WINNER: “I watched the tape of her last race (Grade III Providencia Stakes on April 6) and you could see she was very unlucky to lose. Simon called me up before we ran and told me she was delightful, that she would do whatever I asked, he thought she would be best with a target, so I asked him who that was going to be. There was absolutely no pace but I was super-pleased to see Rafael, (Bejarano aboard Ladymidtown) lead with some aggression and set me up with a target. When Joe, (Talamo aboard Miss Flawless) came to her at the eighth pole she had to find two more gears. I think the pressure factor from the neighbors helped her progress. Just trying to win with the horses coming behind her on the backside, they pushed her; I had my hands full.”TRAINER QUOTESSIMON CALLAGHAN, MAXIM RATE, WINNER, AND HOSTESS, FOURTH (reached by phone in Kentucky, where yesterday he saddled favored Bellafina in the Kentucky Oaks): “I watched the race (Senorita) here and it was very exciting. I thought she’d be hard to beat after her last race (second by a nose in the Grade III Providencia at 1 1/8 miles when she bobbled at the start). She got the trip we expected today and cutting back to a mile wasn’t a concern.”OWNER QUOTESRYAN COSATO, MAXIM RATE, WINNER: “It was a tough one to take last time. She ran awfully good – too good to lose. But we figured we’d re-group and cut her back to a mile in distance. Unfortunately, Flavien didn’t ride her today because he’s out of town for the Derby, but it never hurts when you replace him with a Hall of Famer like Kent. Things worked out.“With it being a short field, the race looked to have a lack of speed, so that was nice because I think our filly can place herself in a close position. I thought she would sit in a nice stalking position, and the race unfolded that way. Fortunately she had enough left in the tank to hold off Lady Prancealot.”NOTES: The winning owner is Nick Cosato of Slam Dunk Racing.last_img read more
