first_imgThere was a lot of optimism surrounding the Wisconsin women’s basketball team (11-18, 3-15 Big Ten) entering the 2019-20 season, but a mixture of blowing late-game leads, defensive struggles and battling a grueling conference schedule has allowed the 2019-20 season to become another rebuilding year for the Badgers.After a strong finish to the 2018-19 season in which Wisconsin won two games in the Big Ten Tournament and almost knocked down the NCAA tournament bound Michigan, fans believed Wisconsin had a chance to turn the corner. They outperformed their seed in the Big Ten and showed potential to compete with the best of the best.   Women’s Basketball: Badgers fall on road to Rutgers, end regular season on seven-game losing streakFor a season which began with five out of six wins in non-conference play, the 2019-2020 Big Ten campaign for Read…With all four scoring leaders returning including rising star Imani Lewis, the Badgers appeared to have a strong nucleus of players who could help the team return to their first postseason appearance since the 2010-11 season.Initially, things clicked early for Wisconsin. Before the start of Big Ten play, the Badgers stood an impressive 8-3 and competed well against top competition. In November’s Bahamas Hoopfest, Wisconsin took a 22-win Arkansas team to the wire, only losing by four to the Razorbacks, who will likely head to the NCAA tournament. Though any loss isn’t satisfying, it appeared the Badgers could compete with the Big Ten’s best. Women’s Basketball: Ranked conference opponents Maryland, Northwestern dominate faltering BadgersComing into back-to-back ranked contests, the University of Wisconsin’s women’s basketball team (11-17, 3-14 Big Ten) lost four in a Read…While Wisconsin proved the ability to compete with tournament teams, the depth of the Big Ten tests teams night in and night out. With eight teams projected to make the NCAA tournament field, the most out of any conference in the country, Wisconsin struggled to combat against the Big Ten’s grueling schedule. Throughout the season, Wisconsin has struggled immensely in conference play. The Badgers are 12th in the Big Ten with a dismal 3-15 record. The Badgers have lost seven consecutive conference games and are 2-13 in their last 15 conference games.The last six of Wisconsin’s games have been against NCAA tournament projected teams. Wisconsin’s matchups were against anything but marginal tournament teams, as these Big Ten teams are legitimate tournament contenders. Also, Wisconsin’s previous three opponents have been ranked in the top 20 with Maryland at No. 6, Northwestern at No. 11 and Iowa at No. 19.Women’s Basketball: Badgers fall to Minnesota, Ohio State as conference woes continueAfter managing to defeat Illinois at Champaign’s Assembly Hall Feb. 2, the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (11-13, 3-10 Read…This slate of games is challenging for any team, especially one struggling in conference play. Though Wisconsin lost all three games by double digits, they have also shown the inability to finish games in crunch time against quality teams. In a two week January stretch, Wisconsin squandered chances for upsets against ranked opponents Iowa and Indiana. First, in a home game against the Hawkeyes, the Badgers dominated the first half, taking a 15 point halftime lead into the intermission. The Badgers were clicking on all cylinders, shooting a solid 21 of 34 from the field. With a 50–35 lead, it appeared Wisconsin was primed for a momentum-building upset. In the second half, the Hawkeyes took control, outscoring the Badgers by an astounding 22 points en route to an 85–78 win. Iowa shot a 11-15 from the field in the third quarter and the Badgers could never seem to get a stop. This game was a missed opportunity for Wisconsin for a signature win on their home floor. Another Wisconsin meltdown came in the Jan. 30 road loss to No. 20 Indiana. Traveling to raucous Assembly Hall, the Badgers were composed early, taking a commanding 33–21 lead into the break. Freshman guard Sydney Hilliard was enjoying her best game, finishing with 23 points on 10 of 14 shooting.Women’s Basketball: Badgers need win in ‘prove it’ games with Big Ten schedule nearing closeTo say that the University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team (10-10, 2-7 Big Ten) has gotten off to a rocky Read…Hilliard’s tremendous play was not enough as the Hoosiers used a 23–13 fourth-quarter advantage to force overtime. Indiana dominated the extra frame, eventually winning the game 75–65. Like Iowa, Wisconsin yet again squandered a golden opportunity to gather momentum and collect a signature win. The inability to finish during crunch time is one reason for the Badger’s disappointing season. The final reason for the Badger’s struggles this season has been their inconsistency on both the offensive and defensive ends as a team. On the offensive end, Wisconsin has struggled to string together proficient scoring numbers as the team ranks 12th in the Big Ten in scoring average, scoring 64.7 points per game. Conversely, the Badgers have struggled to prevent opposing teams from easy jump shots and baskets. Again, Wisconsin ranks in the bottom half of the Big Ten in scoring defense, giving up 67.5 points per game — the fifth worst in the Big Ten. In a season that was once filled with a young core and hopes of a postseason appearance, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team has not lived up to expectations during the 2019-20 campaign. With struggles both offensively, defensively and in crunch time, Wisconsin barred themselves from finally becoming highly competitive within the Big Ten.last_img read more

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Leafs appeared to have solved that dreaded problem scoring.Now the two-time Kootenay International Junior Hockey League finalist has added some grit in front of the net, which could make finding goals even easier.Leaf coach and GM Chris Shaw announced Thursday the team is getting a bigger presence in front of the net after the team acquired 6’2”, 190-pound Evan Moir from the Calgary Canucks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.The acquisition of Moir comes on the same weekend that Shaw is getting back 6’2”, 200-pound winger Cody Abbey back from a shoulder injury.“Evan is a power forward that’s a good fast skater who can carry the puck and has a good physical presence on the ice,” Shaw told The Nelson Daily Thursday. “And now that we have Cody Abbey back also, it should make a big difference for us.”The on-again, off-again Leafs appear to be back on after racking up a pair of wins. The first win was not totally unexpected against Grand Forks. However, Sunday’s win in Spokane over the red hot Braves was a victory that could provide the Leafs with some much-needed confidence as the squad attempts to climb the Murdoch Division standings.“We got back to the basics in practice and put in some hard work,” Shaw explained. “I’ve always been a believer you play the way you practice so we put our hard hats on, did some dryland and it paid off for us.”The dedication to detail combined with a few changes on the power play allowed the Leafs to snap out of a 1-for-31 slump with the man advantage.“We changed some things as far as entering the opposition zone differently,” Shaw said. “Once in the zone the guys were really passing the puck around and had some good finishing.”The Leafs hope to extend the streak a few more games than two when the club plays host to Kimberley Dynamiters Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.Sunday it’s off to Spokane once again for an afternoon contest against the Braves.LEAF NOTES: Kyle Alexander’s stay in Nelson was brief after Shaw sent the former Flin Flon defenceman to Helena, Mont. of the Northern Pacific Junior Hockey League for future considerations. Alexander played only two games in a Leaf jersey . . . Two Leaf players, forward Tanner Burns and Colton Malmsten, will see action Friday for the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BCHL.

Taylor Made and Perry Martin own California Chrome.Meanwhile, Espinoza, the transnational tourist, is laughing all the way to the bank, although the self-proclaimed “happy Mexican” doesn’t need a vault of dinero to appease him.Espinoza’s cut of the $6 million winner’s share is $600,000.“Victor has a smile on his face 24-7,” Beach said.Any wonder?

The son of Curlin was beaten 2 ¾ lengths despite trouble in the race.“I don’t have any complaints about how the San Felipe set up,” Desormeaux said about Exaggerator’s third-place finish behind front-running Danzing Candy and closer Mor Spirit. “He ran a decent middle quarter to make up the distance that he was from off the pace, and he should be able to do that.“The horse is very talented, yet I still can’t explain why he didn’t finish better. Even if there’s more speed in the Santa Anita Derby, it doesn’t matter to me. The way my horse ran last time, I hope he does the same thing, except for the finish.“I can’t explain why he didn’t finish.”Probable for the Grade I Santa Anita Derby: Danzing Candy, Mike Smith; Mor Spirit, Gary Stevens; Exaggerator, Kent Desormeaux; Uncle Lino, Fernando Perez; Smokey Image, Victor Espinoza; Iron Rob, Stewart Elliott; and Denman’s Call, Rafael Bejarano.last_img read more

The researchers screened potential participants for depression, non-specific psychological distress, and health status using established measures. Data from the 2011 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH)provided a comparison group of similar women in the civilian population. The comparison samples totaled 569 military wives and 567 married women from the NSDUH survey.Results of the surveys indicated that military wives believed that they faced a number of barriers to receiving mental health treatment that differed from the civilian population.
