Also FACC’s first two club cyclist will also be recognized.The Grenville Felix Memorial Trophy is a lien trophy and will be given to the first person who gets his name on it three times.(Colin Bynoe Jnr)last_img read more

Men’s basketball: Despite rough end to season, Hayes’ NBA potential remains intriguing

first_imgIn the final four games of his junior season, forward Nigel Hayes took a total of 54 shots — he made only 11.That’s a grand total of about 20 percent shooting from the field in the four most important games of the season. It was win-or-go-home time for Hayes and the Badgers, and the first-team All-Big Ten performer was reluctant to show up.After shooting 2-15, his worst shooting performance of the season, in the loss to Nebraska in the Big Ten Tournament, fellow juniors Vitto Brown and Bronson Koenig bailed out Hayes in the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament, where he shot a combined 5-27.In the Sweet 16 game against Notre Dame, Hayes did manage to put up his best performance of the four games — a measly 4-12, which included two three-pointers. But there was no one to bail him out, and the end of the season could not have gone worse for the junior.But despite the poor performances and the criticisms that came as a result, Hayes is still testing the NBA waters, even if he is just dipping his feet in.Last Tuesday, head coach Greg Gard announced they were going to submit Hayes’ name to the NBA advisory committee, and he will then make his decision regarding the NBA draft. This means that Hayes will submit his name for consideration and have the ability to rescind his name up to 10 days after the NBA Draft Combine May 15.Given the way Hayes’ junior campaign ended, it’s more than likely he won’t garner much interest from NBA teams until maybe the end of the second round of the draft. But there is a reason this was initially thought to be Hayes’ final year at Wisconsin. There is a reason he was thought of a potential top-20 pick. There is a reason Hayes is even bothering to submit his name for consideration.Hayes is a very talented basketball player whose skill set is made for today’s NBA.After playing power forward for his first two seasons with the Badgers, Hayes made the move to small forward this season to make room for Brown and redshirt freshman Ethan Happ in the frontcourt. That move alone allowed Hayes to display his versatility on both sides of the ball and ultimately proved his ability to be viable two-way player at the next level.Men’s basketball: What Badgers will miss if Hayes decides to go proFor collegiate basketball players, the allure of the NBA is tantalizing. Reaching that level is what many have been working Read…OffensivelyAt 6 feet 8 inches tall, Hayes would be undersized as a power forward in the NBA, but an above-average height at small forward. These types of players are usually referred to as “tweeners,” as they are floating somewhere in between two positions.These types of players are usually seen as risks at the next level, but the way Hayes showed his play on the wing as a small forward should have removed a lot of doubts in terms of what position he should be playing.He’s a small forward, and when on the wing, Hayes is likely to be a mismatch for the defense on nearly every possession.This was on display in Wisconsin’s final game of the season against Notre Dame, where the already undersized Fighting Irish had no choice but to give 6-foot-5-inch guard Steve Vasturia the assignment of defending Hayes. While Vasturia is the team’s best perimeter defender, three inches is a lot to give up to a player with Hayes’ strength and finishing ability.Unfortunately, Hayes did not take advantage of this matchup, appearing reluctant to take Vasturia down to the block, where he has found the most success this season. But it won’t be the last time Hayes finds himself with that kind of matchup offensively, and it will only make it easier for him to both score and distribute.DefensivelyHayes’ versatility also allows him to excel defensively, as his prowess on the defensive end never wavered even when the success rate of his jump shot did.His ability to defend three different positions is intriguing enough, but his ability to be successful in doing so is what is most intriguing about the junior’s defensive prowess.On the short list of players Hayes defended this season for extended stretches, are two national player of the year: Michigan State’s Denzel Valentine and Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield, along with Iowa’s Jarrod Uthoff, Indiana’s Troy Williams and Illinois’ Malcolm Hill.That’s two shooting guards, two small forwards and power forward, and Hayes managed to defend all of them admirably.His length combined with his lateral quickness for someone with his size is something that NBA teams will most definitely find valuable. But that said, it is still clear that Hayes is not yet ready to take the next step.That doesn’t mean that he never will be.He struggled in the final stretch, which may even be an understatement, but those struggles don’t take away Hayes’ potential. He may be one year away still, but there is no doubt he’ll be ready.last_img read more

Men’s tennis returns to the court with two home wins

first_imgThe Trojans continue at home tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. with a double header against UC Davis and the University of San Francisco. In the opening match, USC will look to overwhelm a young UC Davis team that has only one upperclassman. It will, however, be a tricky matchup, as the young Aggies have a 6-0 record heading into tomorrow’s matches. USF comes in with an undefeated record as well, although they have only played one match. USC will look to best its result against the Dons last year, when USC won 5-2. The USC men’s tennis team continued its recent success in the ITA Weekend Kickoff Tournament last weekend. After returning from a trip to Australia, the No. 5 Trojans defeated Cal Poly Saturday and defeated UC Santa Barbara in the final on Sunday. USC went up against Cal Poly in the first round and swept them 4-0. All three Trojan pairings started off slow in doubles, with sophomore Daniel Cuckierman and freshman Bradley Frye losing their match 4-6. Juniors Brandon Holt and Riley Smith were able to overcome their slow start, however, and came up with a 6-4 victory. The deciding doubles match came down to the wire, but seniors Laurens Verboven and Jack Jaede were able to clinch the set with a 7-5 win. Holt and Cuckierman both played out their matches and in the end, Holt won his match 7-6, 4-6, 6-4. Cuckierman was the last to finish with a hard fought 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 win. At the end of the day, USC won both of its matches over the weekend and qualified for its 11th consecutive ITA National Indoor Championship, which will be held in Chicago on Feb 15. Smith secured a quick victory once again in singles with a 6-2, 6-2 win. Similarly, freshman Mor Bulis won 6-3, 6-2 in his match. Santa Barbara was able to get 1 point back, as Verboven lost 6-2, 6-3. After Holt and Cuckierman split sets in their matches, all of the attention turned to freshman Jake Sands to clinch USC’s win. Sands stood strong under the pressure and pulled out a gritty 6-4, 6-4 win to give USC the tournament.   The singles matches were much more straightforward, as the Trojans got three straight set wins from Holt (6-4, 6-0), Smith (6-3, 6-2) and Cuckierman (6-1, 7-5). This completed the sweep and secured USC’s place in the championship match on Sunday against the Gauchos.center_img The doubles on Sunday against Santa Barbara proved to be much easier for the Trojans. Holt and Smith dominated with a 6-1 victory, which Cuckierman and Frye followed up with a straightforward 6-2 win. With the doubles point easily secured, the match turned to singles. “As a team, we were all just ready to go, and we are excited for this year,” Smith said. “I think we are going to compete our butts off. I think we really have a chance to just do something special this year. Tournament is nothing different to us, and we are just going to go out there and compete.” The good news continues to come in for the Trojans. It was announced Tuesday that Holt won Pac-12 Player of the Week honors following his undefeated record this past weekend. Women’s tennis junior Angela Kulikov also won the same honor this week, marking the first time since 2015 that USC tennis has had a men’s and women’s player take Player of the Week honors in the same week. Junior Brandon Holt won Pac-12 Player of the Week honors after snagging two doubles and two singles victories in the ITA Kickoff Weekend. It is the second time in his career Holt has earned the honor. (Emily Smith/Daily Trojan)last_img read more

Where to consume foraged apples at The Orchard on Fortnite map

first_imgThe map above shows you where The Orchard is on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map.When you land there, you’ll notice apple trees in the area with some apples that have landed on the ground. If you’ve been playing for a while, you’ve likely consumed apples in the past. But if not, all you need to do is look at the apple and then a button will appear (depending on what system you’re playing on) that shows how to consume the apple. Just hold on to that button for about a second and you’ll eat the apple.As in the past, once you’ve eaten the apple you will gain five health (if you need it). (Epic Games) The Fortnite Trick Shot challenges were released today, and the name might have you a little confused. Although they’re called Trick Shot challenges, none of the challenges actually involve doing trick shots.Instead, most of the challenges are pretty straightforward (eliminations with Pistols, Damage with Shotguns) with a few that might need a little extra guidance. One of those is “Consume Foraged apples at The Orchard.” While somewhat easy to understand, you may not remember exactly where The Orchard is. That’s where we come in. The Orchard is located near Frenzy Farm, although it’s a little more north of there.MORE: Pipeman, Hayman and Timber Tent locations to dance at for Fortnite challengeConsume apples at The Orchard in Fortnite The hardest part of this challenge will be fighting off others for apples. Most likely, a lot of people will be landing here to complete the challenge on their own, meaning the apples may be gone if you wait too long. Other than that, this challenge is pretty simple and you should accomplish it quickly.The challenge requires you to consume three apples.last_img read more

Broh Wants Mawah Clinic Closed

first_img‘Gen.’ Mary T. Broh, head of the presidential taskforce to beautify the city, has recommended to the Ministry of Health and the Medical and Dental Board the immediate closure of Mawah Clinic for its unsanitary environment.She told a team of Ministry of Health officials assigned to the taskforce that the clinic should be closed to enable the management to carry out a full cleanup exercise.Mawah Clinic is a well-known private medical facility in Vai Town, Monrovia, offering a wide range of medical services, from lab tests to surgery. Speaking to reporters shortly after a tour of the facilities yesterday, Madam Broh said it was unfortunate for the most famous Mawah Clinic in Vai Town to be filthy, with loads of trash including needles, testing kits and syringes.Madam Broh said improper disposal of needles, testing kits and syringes is dangerous for children and adults in the community.Broh said she wants health authorities to urgently intervene by closing the clinic until the management improves sanitary conditions at the clinic. “We were around the entrance of Mawah Clinic last week and I thought by now they would have cleaned the place and sanitize the facilities to give it a facelift, which the management has not done. This is the place that has doctors and nurses who have been to medical school but what is happening to sanitation and hygiene at the place is unknown,” she said.Madam Broh said the doctors and nurses at the clinic are very reckless in observing hygiene and other health related rules, which is precarious for those seeking medical attention there.“This is the place that thousands of Liberians and even foreign residents get healthcare services, and they need to have or observe good hygiene. With the present unhealthy condition, there is no need for anyone to seek medication at Mawah Clinic,” she said.Madam Broh said 99.9% of the Liberian population deserves better and regretted that there are people in the country who will like to see a permanent class of people in abject poverty so that they can hold on to their power base.“This will not happen because some of us are here to eradicate the problem. We will not have school cafeterias, milk facilities, among others, filled with maggots and worms,” she added.Madam Broh said she is back and will continue to work tirelessly to clean the city because “I believe in the beautification of Liberia, that all of us can live better and clean.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
