Marshall: Shockers’ experience means little against Indiana

first_imgOMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Wichita State coach Greg Marshall is downplaying his team’s NCAA Tournament experience as a factor in Friday’s game against Indiana.The Shockers have five players back from last year’s team that was unbeaten until it lost to Kentucky in the round of 32. Three of those players were on the team that went to the Final Four the year before.Indiana is the youngest team in the tournament.Marshall said UAB’s upset of Iowa State on Thursday is proof that experience doesn’t matter much once the game starts.Wichita State (28-4) comes in as the No. 7 seed in the Midwest, and its 63-5 record the past two years is the best in Division I.The No. 10 Hoosiers (20-13) have lost nine of their last 14.last_img read more

Final Four rematch: It’s UK-Wisconsin again

first_imgCLEVELAND – Since Aaron Harrison’s final dagger dropped with six seconds left in last year’s national semifinal, Wisconsin has been on a mission.“That loss left a sour taste in our mouth, so we wanted to get back,” Badgers forward Sam Dekker said Saturday after winning the NCAA Tournament’s West Regional to return to the Final Four.Since Connecticut ruined Kentucky’s storybook ending in the national championship game last season, the Wildcats have been similarly motivated.“Just two more games,” said Andrew Harrison late Saturday night after hitting the clinching free throws against Notre Dame to get UK into its second straight Final Four and fourth in five years under coach John Calipari. “You really remember that feeling you had after the (title) game last year. You don’t want to have that feeling again.”Tweet by Courier-Journal.comBut someone’s redemption tour will be stopped short in the rematch. The undefeated Wildcats (38-0) must go through red-hot Wisconsin (35-3) again, this time in Indianapolis, for their shot at a ninth NCAA championship and college basketball’s first 40-0 season.The Badgers, who returned eight of the nine guys who played in last year’s Final Four duel with Kentucky, have won 10 straight games and hit 10 of 12 3-pointers in the second half Saturday to blow by Arizona.“I know (Wisconsin coach) Bo Ryan, and he’s a great friend, and how good he coaches,” said Calipari, who has won 15 of his last 16 NCAA Tournament games. “I’ve said all along I thought the (four) best teams were us, Wisconsin and Arizona and Duke. And other teams are right there, but those four seem to be a little bit better than the others.”The Badgers have a combination of shooting and size – seven players 6-8 or taller, including 6-9 Dekker and 7-foot All-American Frank Kaminsky – to threaten the Cats. Kentucky, with just one major contributor shorter than 6-6, ultimately overtook the Fighting Irish with a massive mismatch in length.“That’s a great matchup,” said Notre Dame coach Mike Brey after his team fell just short in a 68-66 thriller. “Wisconsin’s a little bit like us: they’re skilled and they can spread people out. They have a little more bulk and frontline size, but they’re really skilled offensive guys, and certainly we were able to get some things tonight.”Analysis | Towns, UK outlast Notre Dame 68-66The Cats returned just five of the guys who played against Wisconsin the first time, and lost their top two scorers from that 74-73 classic, but that doesn’t mean the Cats are less equipped. This team is actually far better than that one. They added four McDonald’s All-Americans, including 6-11 freshman star Karl-Anthony Towns, who poured in 25 points against the Irish.Junior 7-footer Willie Cauley-Stein, the nation’s top defender who helped save Saturday’s game with a late block, was injured and didn’t play the Badgers last year. But he knows this will be a challenge.“I’m glad we have a week to prepare for them,” Cauley-Stein said. “The way they play together is the best in the country. This is when I’m glad we don’t have one day to prepare for them. One day to prepare for a team like Notre Dame? That’s why we couldn’t stop them. If we’d had a couple more days to see where the holes are …. but the way they run their offense is crazy. You really can’t stop it.Analysis | Towns, UK outlast Notre Dame 68-66“It’s really them missing shots, and you get the rebounds, and that’s how you stop them. Otherwise they’re going to get their shots up, and if they’re making them, it’s going to be a long night.”One of the Wildcats’ newcomers, rookie point guard Tyler Ulis, is still familiar with Wisconsin’s best player, Kaminsky. They’re both former Illinois high school stars and played in the same league.Ulis is new to this matchup, and this stage, but he knows what to expect.“Another hard-fought game,” he said, “and I feel like they want some get-back from last year.”Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361.

Ole Miss drops series opener to Missouri

first_imgOle Miss and Missouri both scored two runs in the fifth inning, but the Rebels couldn’t manage to manufacture any more offense thereafter on Friday night. The Rebels dropped its series opener to the Tigers 4-2 at Taylor Stadium. The loss brings Ole Miss back to one game above .500 with the regular season winding down. The Rebels are still projected to make the NCAA Tournament, but must remain above that mark to be eligible. Junior Christian Trent tossed a complete game, allowing four runs on nine hits.The southpaw struck out six Tigers without surrendering a walk as he pitched eight innings for the second consecutive game.The first 23 batters of the game were retired before Missouri’s Ryan Howard singled up the middle with two outs in the bottom of the fourth.The Tigers reached the scoreboard in three consecutive innings from the fifth to the seventh. For Ole Miss, Colby Bortles and Connor Cloyd continued their hot streaks at the plate. Bortles reached base for the 24th time in the past 25 games, going 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored. Cloyd increased his hit streak to eight games with an infield single.last_img read more

Ole Miss’ Friday night game vs. Texas A&M postponed

first_imgOle Miss coach Mike Bianco.Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco.OXFORD – Ole Miss’ Friday night game against No. 8 Texas A&M has been postponed due to inclement weather.The Rebels (29-25) and Aggies (43-9) will play two seven-inning games on Saturday starting at 1:30 p.m. The second contest will start following a 40 minute break.The Aggies downed Ole Miss 4-0 in the series opener on Thursday night. Texas A&M starter Grayson Long pitched a gem, working seven scoreless innings and striking out 12. He allowed just two hits.After getting to 29 wins earlier in the week with a victory over Arkansas State, the Rebels likely can only help themselves this weekend. But the loss to the Aggies on Thursday mathematically eliminated them from earning a bye into the double-elimination round of the Southeastern Conference Tournament.Ole Miss is projected as a No. 2 seed in the Tallahassee regional in the NCAA Tournament, according to D1Baseball.com. Texas A&M is still fighting to earn a national seed. Not looking very good pic.twitter.com/Flk1fn0znr— Riley Blevins (@Riley_Blevins) May 15, 2015Ole Miss sophomore Brady Bramlett is scheduled to start the first game on Saturday. Senior Scott Weathersby will likely go in the second.Bramlett has a 3.73 ERA and is 6-3 on the year. He’ll go against Texas A&M right-hander Ryan Hendrix, who owns a 3.48 ERA with a 4-1 record. Single-game tickets for Friday’s game will be valid for the full doubleheader on Saturday.last_img read more
