Grades: Bohannon earns high honors

Grades: Bohannon earns high honors

first_imgSenior guard Jason Bohannon led the way for UW in both games this week with 37 points.[/media-credit]Every week, Herald Sports will look back at the Wisconsin men’s basketball team and grade the Badgers in various aspects of the games played.Here is how the Badgers fared in their games at home against Michigan State and on the road at Michigan:Offense — 4.5 of 5The Badgers were no less reliant on the three-ball against the pair of Michigan schools than they have been in any other game since Jon Leuer’s injury — they just made a lot more of them.Wisconsin made 34 percent of its deep attempts against the Spartans last Tuesday, but connected on 40 percent in the crucial first half where the Badgers built a 15-point lead.In Ann Arbor, UW nailed a crazy 9-of-13 from beyond the arc in the first 20 minutes and finished the game shooting 52 percent from three-point range. The perimeter barrage proved unstoppable with UW winning easily in both games carrying big leads into halftime.The scoring load was spread out with seven players scoring in double digits in the two games and senior guard Jason Bohannon leading both games with 19 and 18 points, respectively.Though the Badgers only shot a combined 16 free throws, they finished both games shooting over 50 percent from the field.Defense — 4 of 5Wisconsin displayed its usual brand of solid defense, but didn’t have to do as much work defending its hoop with the team clicking so well on the offensive end.Michigan State shot itself in the foot on many possessions hoisting up the first decent look it saw, often resulting in possessions under 10 seconds long.It is hard to screw up on the defensive end when you are only there for a short time.Against Michigan, DeShawn Sims once again had his way, collecting 18 points on over 50 percent shooting.The big man couldn’t help his teammates, though, turning the ball over twice and grabbing a mere four rebounds in 33 minutes of action.The Badgers throttled dynamic scorer Manny Harris for the second time this season, however, limiting the junior to 11 points on four-of-11 shooting.Bench — 2.5 of 5Rob Wilson continues to play clutch minutes and provide efficient scoring off the bench. His court awareness has improved leaps and bounds. Wilson often established deep post position against both Michigan teams and finished at the rim when given the ball. He provides solid D as well, often against bigger players in the four-guard offense.After Wilson, however, there is virtually nothing. Ryan Evans’ minutes have been decreasing, as the redshirt freshman proves unreliable and at times an extreme liability on the offensive end. Against Michigan Evans went scoreless and turned the ball over twice in 16 minutes of play. At home versus Michigan State, Wilson was the only bench player to crack double digits in minutes.Badger of the Week — Jason BohannonBohannon stretched defenses with his three-point shooting (7-for-16 shooting on the week), and provided strong scoring inside 20 feet, going 15-for-26 over the two game stretch. He led the team in points both games, and he has rocked the black eye look on top of it. Even more impressively, Bohannon collected seven assists to only one turnover while leading the team in minutes played.Play of the Week — Jason Bohannon’s buzzer-beating half-court heave at MichganUp 11 points after a Sims rebound put back, Bohannon raced down the court with two seconds left and let fly a running three-point attempt just inside the half court line.Then the lead stretched to 14, and though UW head coach Bo Ryan wasn’t happy with the lack of boxing out on the defensive end, Bohannon let loose a roar of emotion and pumped his fist heading back to the locker.It was the ninth 3-pointer made in the first half, and probably demoralized Michigan with 20 minutes left to play.last_img read more

Fennell blasts Jamaican doping allegations

Fennell blasts Jamaican doping allegations

first_img The low levels of clenbuterol found, “below 1ng/ml”, was in the range to suggest “potential meat contamination cases”, the IOC said. China has a reputation for using clenbuterol in livestock farming to increase animals’ muscle, and Olympic athletes were warned of contamination risks before going to Beijing, China. “The IOC has stated that it’s not just Jamaican athletes, but others have the same situation and not to the extent to cause what we’d call an adverse analytical finding or a positive test. With all of these allegations, it’s very, very disturbing that people are attacking us like that,” Fennell said. “Why they have sought out Jamaicans is because we still live in a world where people feel that there’s no good justification for Jamaica showing very good results. It’s a pity they weren’t here last weekend to see the incredible talent that we have at the schoolboy and schoolgirl level (referring to the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships). That would have displayed that we are a country with considerable talent.” Fennell said that he’s, however, not worried about specific Jamaican athletes being named in the near future. “I think that the system protects from that, and that’s why one has to be careful not to overreact to some of these allegations, because, let’s face it, we live in a free world and we must respect the fact that others may have the ability to shape those opinions. But equally, we must be very strong in defending the rights and the cleanliness of our athletes.” Seppelt and German network ARD have consistently revealed and reported on doping scandals, including working with whistle-blowers to expose systematic cheating in Russian track and field. LOW LEVELS Jamaica Olympic Association President Mike Fennell said that he is very concerned about what he describes as “wild allegations” being made that Jamaican athletes at the 2008 Beijing Olympics were not prosecuted for positive tests by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). These allegations were made by German documentary maker Hajo Seppelt, who also said that the Jamaicans, who were not specifically named, had traces of clenbuterol, a banned muscle-building substance, in recent retests of eight-year-old urine samples. “There’s no basis nor foundation for that,” Fennell told The Gleaner. “No official or other report has been received from either the IOC or WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) that any of our athletes have been (tested) positive. The fact that some of these have claimed to be found in traces from the retesting is a matter that is left for much speculation.” The IOC also responded to the claims made yesterday, saying that it concluded that there was no pattern of organised cheating after consulting WADA. “After careful consideration, WADA informed the IOC further to the pattern analysis that the IOC had conducted that WADA could not find any significant and consistent pattern of abuse of clenbuterol in these cases and that it would be appropriate not to take these cases any further,” the IOC said in a statement.last_img read more

Canada will feel oilpatch pain but likely wont be as bad as

first_imgOTTAWA — The head of the Bank of Canada says the negative impacts of low oil prices that have struck Western Canada will reverberate across the entire national economy.But governor Stephen Poloz says the sting of weaker crude prices will likely have a smaller impact across Canada than the 2015 oil-price crisis, which contributed at the time to a slight, technical recession.In prepared notes of his speech today in Toronto, Poloz says oil and gas production now makes up just 3.5 per cent share of Canada’s, compared to six per cent in 2014.Looking at the positive side, Poloz says the latest oil-price shock also arrives at a time when Canada’s economy is running close to full tilt and the unemployment rate is at a 40-year low.The central bank has been on a rate-hiking path to keep inflation from running too hot — but on Wednesday it left its trend-setting interest rate unchanged as it underlined negatives such as the recent drop in oil prices and an unexpected decline in business investment.Poloz says in his speech that economic data since October have been on the disappointing side and market watchers believe the developments will delay the timing of future rate hikes.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
