first_imgPhoto: Dave Vann Photo: Dave Vann Photo: Dave Vann On Saturday night, Umphrey’s McGee continued their West Coast winter tour with a performance at Seattle, WA’s Showbox SoDo. Ghost-Note–the explosive brainchild of Snarky Puppy alumni, drummer Robert Sput Searight and percussionist Nate Werth–handled the evening’s opening duties with an uptempo, funky set.Umphrey’s McGee opened up their first set with “Glory” before smoothly segueing into “Rocker Part 2”. The six-piece moved forward with “Sociable Jimmy”, played for only the second time in 2019, which was followed up by “Conduit”. Backed by Kris Myers, Ryan Stasik, and Andy Farag‘s tight-knit rhythm section, Brendan Bayliss and Joel Cummins laid down some silky-smooth vocal harmonies on last night’s hard-hitting “Conduit”. A seamless pairing of “Nothing Too Fancy” into Make It Right” followed before the sextet brought their first set to a halt with a cover of Paul McCartney and Wings‘ “Live and Let Die”, played only eight times since 2015.Following a brief setbreak, Umphrey’s McGee returned to open their second set with “Draconian”, which was followed up by “Seasons” and “JaJunk”.

USC Women’s Tennis to host ITA Kick-off Weekend

first_imgThe No. 6 USC women’s tennis team will have its home opener Friday at Marks Stadium as USC hosts ITA Kick-off Weekend. Throughout the month of January, the team began the spring season playing in various tournaments across the U.S., specifically in Las Vegas, Nev., Palm Springs, Calif. and Port St. Lucie, Fla. Playing at home will be a nice change of pace as USC welcomes opposing teams St. Mary’s, Utah and North Texas for the weekend tournament.Juniors Giuliana Olmos and Zoe Scandalis started their spring season on the right foot by taking home the doubles title at the Freeman Memorial Tennis Championships in Las Vegas (WHEN?). The duo is ranked seventh in the nation together. Senior Brynn Boren and freshman Zoë Katz, ranked No. 3 in the nation together, were upset by an unranked pair from Duke.Meanwhile, junior Gabriella DeSimone, senior Kaitlyn Christian and sophomore Ellie Yates participated in the National Collegiate Tennis Classic in Palm Springs. After making a deep run in the tournament, junior Gabriella DeSimone said the team is ready to bring their success back to their home court.“We are excited to kick off the season off at home. Every match is a chance for us to get better and build more confidence and that is what we are aiming for this weekend,” DeSimone said. “Playing at home is fantastic. Home court advantage always helps and being able to keep certain rituals. Also, being able to sleep in your own bed is always a plus.”In the first round of the ITA Kick-off Weekend tournament, USC will face a solid squad in No. 60 North Texas, led by head coach Sujay Lama. The Mean Green fell this past weekend to No. 34-ranked Oklahoma and is looking to rebound against the Women of Troy. The team played last weekend without Kseniya Bardabush and Franziska Sprinkmeyer, and may have to again today.When asked how she and fellow teammates are preparing for an unfamiliar opponent in North Texas, DeSimone said she’s preparing for this team the same way she does for all opponents.“I am looking at North Texas just like any other match,” DeSimone said. “I don’t pay much attention to the school or the individual I will be playing against but mainly what I need to do to get myself ready to compete this weekend.”The other match today will feature No. 37 St. Mary’s, led by Jenny Jullien, versus No. 58 Utah and top player Tereza Bekerova. Both St. Mary’s and Utah could provide intriguing singles and doubles matchups against USC in the second round of play, but DeSimone guarantees that USC is focusing on North Texas and not looking ahead to a potential match with Pac-12 conference rivals Utah, whom USC will face later during the season in conference play.“As for potentially facing Utah, I am not looking that far ahead,” DeSimone said. “[I’m taking it] one match at a time for now, so my focus is all geared towards North Texas for now.”The tournament will start today at 10 a.m. with Utah versus St. Mary’s, followed by USC versus North Texas at 1 p.m. The tournament will conclude on Sat., Jan. 25, with a consolation match at 2 p.m. and the championship match at 5 p.m. All games will be played outdoors at Marks Stadium.last_img read more

Badgers head west to try to add to strong start

first_imgAfter starting the year off with four straight wins at the McClimon Soccer Complex, the Wisconsin women’s soccer team is hitting the road for the first time, as the Badgers head out west to a tournament in Seattle.Wisconsin will go up against Washington (4-0) in its first Husky/Nike Invitational game Friday night, and finish the tournament Sunday afternoon taking on the Portland Pilots (1-2).  Dartmouth College will also be participating in the four-team tournament, but will not face the Badgers.The last time Wisconsin made an appearance in the Husky Invitational was 2010, when midfielder Kodee Williams was a rookie. Williams is one of the only players still on the roster from that season.“I went to this [tournament] my freshman year. It was really exciting,” Williams said.  “It’s definitely nice to get some out of conference play.”Williams has been off to a tremendous start this season, with two assists already under her belt, along with an overtime goal against Tennessee a couple weekends back, proving herself to be a clutch player.  But the fifth-year senior said that she, along with the rest of the roster, is going to be exposed to a very new kind of soccer this weekend.“The style of soccer is different out there,” Williams said.  “They’re a lot more tactical and use smaller players, whereas the Big Ten is known for being a pretty physical conference.”Head coach Paula Wilkins added that a tactical team is typically more aggressive on the ball and boasts a strong offense.“They can hold the ball individually and keep possession well, so we have to be really good at team defending,” Wilkins said.  “They’re a little more attack oriented, whereas I think sometimes the Midwest is a little more defensive oriented.”The attacking style of play has worked well for Washington so far this season, as they have defeated top contenders such as Kentucky and Pittsburgh. One specific offensive threat is senior forward Jaclyn Softli who has been the key player in each of those wins, scoring four of the team’s eight total goals so far this season.Wilkins said when an opponent has standout players like Softli, it’s important to keep an eye out for them, but to not lose sight of others on the field.“Obviously when someone scores a bunch of goals, we’re going to have to spend a little more time focusing on them,” Wilkins said.  “But [Washington] has a good group of attacking players, so if you focus in on just one, somebody else will exploit you.”And if the Badgers have proved anything this season, it’s that they don’t underestimate any one player or team.  In just the first four games, the Wisconsin bench already looks like a completely different group from last year, when they finished with a 10-7-2 record.Badgers continue to dominate with pair of weekend victories Coming into the weekend with an undefeated record, the No. 19 Wisconsin women’s soccer team kept the good times rolling Read…The key in these early victories, according to both Wilkins and Williams, has been a focus both on and off the field that allows them to adapt to each team they play.  Wilkins pointed out that against Tennessee back in late August, her squad took a defensive approach to counter Tennessee’s strong offense, but last weekend, against two weaker opponents, the Badgers stepped up and attacked the ball more, leading to 5-0 and 3-0 victories.What’s more, this taste of success has not resulted in Wisconsin lowering its defenses; the focus is still there, each practice and game, and has only left the roster hungry for more.“We’re not content with our start,” Williams said.  “We know that we have bigger teams to play and bigger battles to win.”And the Husky/Nike Invitational is definitely a good time for the Badgers to have that mentality.  Both teams they’ll face, especially Washington Friday night, will pose a challenge that the team hasn’t yet seen.“Obviously we don’t expect to win every game 5-0 and 3-0 like we did this weekend,” Williams said.  “Portland and Washington will definitely be some of the teams that will be able to put our backs up against the wall, and hopefully we can step up to that challenge.”last_img read more

Baseball beats LMU, falls in exhibition

first_imgThe Trojans split a pair of midweek games on Tuesday and Wednesday, defeating Loyola Marymount 4-3 but being shut out 5-0 in an exhibition game by NC Dinos. On Wednesday, the incredibly loud and energetic Dinos fans danced, sang and chanted words of encouragement in their native Korean to the Dinos,  who outhit the Trojans 6-4. The Dinos were led by two home runs from former MLB player Eric Thames. The loss came a day after the Trojans defeated LMU for their first road victory of the season, where freshman Pitcher CJ Stubbs recorded his first collegiate win Tuesday as USC baseball escaped a 2-run ninth inning scare. Stubb shined in his six-inning USC debut, allowing one run on four hits and a strikeout. Head coach Dan Hubbs credited Stubbs’ ability to move to the ball in and out of the strike zone, which enabled him to get weak contact so that his defense can make a play. “For a freshman to come out in his outing and do that was big because winning is hard to do and there is so much parity in the game that you have to play extremely well,” Hubbs said, “That was big and great to see.” Sophomore infielder Frankie Rios’ turned a game-ending double play that sealed the game for the Trojans, who had been leading the contest 4-1 until the bottom of the ninth when senior reliever Marc Huberman allowed two runs on two hits with two walks. He was replaced by junior Jeff Pachke, who allowed one hit, loaded the bases and escaped by forcing LMU sophomore Jamey Smart to hit into a double play. Sophomore Adalberto Carrillo gave the Trojans the initial lead in the third inning with his first hit of the season, a solo home run, but LMU infielder Ted Boeke tied the game with a solo home run of his own in the fourth inning. Later in that inning, USC retook the lead when sophomore Angelo Armenta utilized a sacrifice fly to make it 2-1. “We have got to get a big hit on that situation where we can put up a crooked number and really start to separate a game,” Hubbs said, “Because we have played four one-run games in four games now, but I think we will be better for it in the long run.” Senior Timmy Robinson, whose first hit of the season was a walk-off single against North Dakota in USC’s last game, continued to make an impact despite battling elbow tightness with a two-run homer in the sixth inning to give the Trojans a 4-1 cushion heading into the bottom of the ninth. Next up, the Trojans return to their regular season schedule, facing Wake Forest at home on Friday night to kick off a three-game set.last_img read more
