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

Duke’s Zion Williamson, for now, is the one and only candidate for player of the year

first_imgOr you can just see for yourself.“The thing about that kid is that he doesn’t want all of that attention,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said, “and he handles it so well.”He’ll need to get used to it. He’s going to have a busy weekend at the Final Four, either playing with the Blue Devils or attending award ceremonies. There seems little doubt which is preferable: After all, they can FedEx him all the trophies. What’s important is there was more than one guy mentioned. So it was stretching the truth.MORE: Quit the comparisons: Zion is one of a kindSeveral major national POY awards are available for the season’s best in college basketball. There’s no single award, no Heisman Trophy, that stands alone. There are at least five that are widely recognized: the Oscar Robertson Trophy, the Naismith Award, the Wooden Award, the Associated Press Player of the Year and the Sporting News Player of the Year.And Duke’s Zion Williamson will take home every one of them. He’s going to win every state, take the popular vote and take the electoral college too.If you weren’t convinced of this after Saturday, you’re trying way too hard not to be convinced. Williamson put on a show against St. John’s that would have made Lady Gaga envious for its astonishing levels of outrageousness and virtuosity. For the most part, it was nothing we haven’t seen before — but that’s rather the point. Williamson keeps doing these things, over and over, stacking points and rebounds and blocks and steals and highlights that grab you by the throat and don’t let go.Against St. John’s: 29 points, 6 rebounds, 5 steals, 13-of-17 shooting.“I think he’s had that impact on every team, quite frankly,” St. John’s coach Chris Mullin told reporters following the game. “He’s shooting 73 percent in the ACC, so he’s going a good job against everybody.”SCONZO: Chris Clemons forging unforgettable legacy at CampbellSince the start of the new year, Williamson has not once scored fewer than 22 points in any game he completed (Williamson fell short when he scored just 11 in a half against Florida State before leaving with a minor eye injury). In that same period, again in games he completed, he hasn’t converted fewer than 62.5 percent of his field goal attempts. He missed gathering seven rebounds only once, and that includes his one-half appearance against the Seminoles, when he got eight.There was foul trouble in the December game against Texas Tech in Madison Square Garden, so he contributed only 17 points and 13 rebounds. He made only four shots in the win over Auburn back in Maui, so his numbers lagged at 13 points and 9 rebounds. Duke won both of those games. He has played 21 games as a collegian, and those were his only real duds.And were they really duds? Honestly, no one has come close yet to shutting him down.Seriously, now. The SN college players of the year this decade have been, in order: Evan Turner, Jimmer Fredette, Anthony Davis, Victor Oladipo, Doug McDermott, Frank Kaminsky, Buddy Hield, Frank Mason and Jalen Brunson. We are proud of all these choices, and they were wonderful college players. But none arrived at this point of the season consistently demonstrating the same degree of excellence at both ends of the floor that Williamson does each time out.We are talking about a 6-8, 285-pound forward who plays above the rim, whose strength and dynamism leaves opposing coaches wondering what tactics might slow him. Opposing players often decide the safest maneuver is to get out of the way. Even with a team that ranks worse than 300th in 3-point offense, the Blue Devils have the No. 4 offense. Zion is not the only reason for that, but he is the biggest reason.“I said coming in probably one of the best things about him is his attitude and his personality. He’s got a great joy for the game and passion for the game,” Mullin said. “I think it rubs off on his teammates. He’s very unselfish. If he doesn’t like his shot, he shares with his teammates. Those things get overlooked. Obviously, his physicality, his athleticism is unmatched.“A lot of these kids, when they’re critiqued and they’re rated, sometimes by the time they get here they’re worn out. He seems to have been able to maintain that smile and that passion. I think that’s contagious to their team. It’s good to see.”MORE: SN’s 2018-19 midseason All-AmericansFirst-team All-American is an underrated honor. To be one of the five best players in any season, out of roughly 4,500 in Division I, puts a player into an absurdly elite club both currently and historically. Imagine being able to boast having something in common with Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson.And the competition for those positions might be the best in a generation: Carsen Edwards of Purdue, Rui Hachimura of Gonzaga, Ethan Happ of Wisconsin, Markus Howard of Marquette, Dedric Lawson of Kansas, Ja Morant of Murray State, Grant Williams of Tennessee, Cassius Winston of Michigan State and Williamson’s Duke teammate, RJ Barrett. Are all magnificent candidates for a list that only can contain five names.Well, four plus Zion.Their performances over the next six weeks will determine which of them can survive the cut from nine to four. But the only way any of them is entering the conversation for player of the year is if Williamson somehow plays himself out of it.If you want to use analytics, statistician Ken Pomeroy at KenPom.com puts Williamson in a category almost of his own, with only Happ in the same zip code in his player of the year rankings. Williamson’s offensive rating of 132.2 is more than five points better than any player has recorded over the past 15 years — and nearly eight points better than second-best this season.You could stick with the basics: 22.3 points per game, 9 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2.1 steals and a .687 field goal percentage. Sometime during the course of watching all or part of a dozen different college basketball games on Saturday afternoon, I noticed on one of these telecasts a graphic listing the young men considered to be candidates for national player of the year.It’s not important who was on the list, and you probably can guess most of the names.last_img read more
