Mackay front-runner for Palace job

first_img Tony Popovic on Tuesday downplayed speculation linking him to the vacant post, insisting his former club had not been in contact. The 41-year-old former Australia international has strong ties with the Eagles, having played for the club for five seasons before returning in 2011 as part of Dougie Freedman’s backroom set-up. Popovic is now manager of Western Sydney Wanderers and, despite having been as short as 6/1 with one bookmakers to replace Pulis, insisted talk of taking charge at Selhurst Park was wide of the mark. “No there’s been no conversations with anyone in regards to that and it’s not for us to speak about speculation,” Popovic said. “If there was something happening we’d certainly speak to you about it. “I’m very fond of that club. I have great memories and history there and many friends I have there. “I wish them the best in whoever they choose as a manager.” Palace have signed just Fraizer Campbell, Brede Hangeland and Martin Kelly so far during the transfer window, with the board intent on adding at least three more recruits. Caretaker coach Keith Millen assumed control for Palace’s opening league fixture, the 2-1 defeat at Arsenal. Press Association The former Cardiff boss is now the clear front-runner to succeed Tony Pulis at the south London club, but Palace have remained tight-lipped on the situation. Selhurst Park bosses are believed to be close to finalising a three-year contract for Mackay, with bookmakers suspending bets on his appointment. Malky Mackay is expected to beat Tim Sherwood to the vacant Crystal Palace job. Former Tottenham bosses Sherwood and Martin Jol had been under serious consideration by the Palace board, but Mackay’s close relationship with sporting director Iain Moody should tip the balance in his favour. The duo worked in tandem at Cardiff, before Mackay was sacked in December. Former Watford manager Mackay could be in place to lead Palace in Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with one of his former clubs, West Ham. Pulis walked out on Palace on the eve of the league season after reported disagreements with co-chairman Steve Parish over transfer strategy. The ex-Stoke boss landed the manager of the year award for steering the Eagles from the depths of a relegation battle to an impressive 11th-place finish last term. His forthright style clashed with Parish and Moody across pre-season, leading to his departure. Now Palace look prepared to reunite Mackay and Moody, while also retaining the remainder of the backroom staff that worked under Pulis. Sherwood had been understood to favour a reshuffle of the behind-the-scenes coaching roster, while Palace are aiming to keep what semblance of continuity possible in the wake of Pulis’ surprise exit. last_img read more

MBB : Great Danes guards break down Orange zone defense in loss

first_img Published on November 15, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: | @Michael_Cohen13 Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Gerardo Suero sliced into the left side of the Syracuse zone. As he neared the basket, there stood 6-foot-9 forward Rakeem Christmas to protect the hoop against the penetrating 6-foot-4 Albany guard.Suero went airborne, leaping directly toward Christmas’ chest. But in midflight, he contorted his body and ducked under the all-encompassing wingspan of Christmas. And as he fell to his right — toward the center of the paint — Suero flung an off-balance shot toward the basket that somehow rattled in off the glass to give Albany an early four-point lead.‘I told everybody he’s not passing the ball,’ SU guard Dion Waiters said. ‘He was doing some crazy shots on one-on-threes, all this acrobatic stuff in the air.’Reckless as he may have been, Suero willed his way to a game-high 31 points against the Syracuse 2-3 zone. A relentless attack against the SU defense opened up opportunities for fellow guards Logan Aronhalt and Mike Black to score from the outside. The trio combined for 62 points in the 98-74 loss to the No. 5 Orange on Tuesday and pointed out several key weaknesses in SU head coach Jim Boeheim’s zone.For the Great Danes to have any shot of pulling an upset, the offense had to start and finish with Suero. The Dominican Republic native found any possible crevice in the 2-3 zone and threw himself at the basket sans caution.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThough he’s played against zone defense all his life growing up in the Dominican Republic, he had never seen anything like the labyrinth presented by the Orange.‘Oh my god,’ a visibly exhausted Suero said. ‘These guys, they are so long. Their arms are so long I don’t even know. Every time I got to the middle, there were like two or three people playing defense on me.’Part of the result was six turnovers by Suero, who was stripped in the lane on several occasions. But more often than that, he drew fouls.With 10:21 remaining in the first half, Suero received a pass in the right corner from center John Puk to break the SU full-court press. He beelined for the basket, attempting to use the rim as a shield for a reverse layup.The long arms of Fab Melo blocked the shot and clobbered Suero on the follow-through, though the foul was assessed to Brandon Triche. He was slow to get up, but went on to make both free throws.‘You can do good things against their zone and get a good shot, and it could be punched into the seventh row by a 7-footer who is protecting the rim,’ Albany head coach Will Brown said. ‘So I’m trying to look at did we get the ball where we needed to get to and realize that in our league, no one is going to be there blocking it into the seventh row.’Suero’s ability to get to the free-throw line was due in part to ‘dumb reach-in fouls,’ as Waiters called them. And though his shots were often blocked by a converging Baye Moussa Keita or Christmas, Suero drew contact with his body to receive a foul call and converted 11-of-12 from the free-throw line.And like Suero, the Great Danes sharpshooter — Aronhalt — won’t face forwards with 7-foot wingspans launching out at him on every 3-point attempt.He missed each of his first two attempts from long range as well as a layup from in close, but he responded well from that point forward. Aronhalt connected on 4-of-11 3-pointers, finishing with 20 points.He made back-to-back 3s in the final six minutes of the first half that drew the ire of Boeheim, who called an immediate timeout when he felt his defenders didn’t extend far enough to contest.‘We didn’t block as many shots as we do,’ Boeheim said. ‘I think we were a little slow, a little step off tonight. We didn’t do as good a job there as we have been.’Fortunately, Boeheim said, Aronhalt missed a few open 3s or the game would have been much closer in the first half.Still, the fact that the two players SU’s defense was supposed to key in on — Suero and Aronhalt — burned the Orange didn’t sit well with Boeheim.Said Boeheim sarcastically: ‘We did talk in the scouting report about the two guys that were guys we wanted to be careful of and be aware of, and we held them to 51, so that was good.’mjcohe02@syr.edulast_img read more

Wisconsin volleyball faces in-state rival Marquette Friday
