Frank Kaminsky came up two huge
« on: February 11, 2019, 01:43:21 am »
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The way Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan sees it, the 16th-ranked Badgers are playing better because theyre making shots. Theyre also making plays -- and Frank Kaminsky came up two huge ones to beat No. 15 Iowa on Saturday. Kaminsky had 21 points and a crucial late steal as Wisconsin won 79-74 for its fifth straight win after a 1-5 stretch marked by poor shooting. Sam Dekker added 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Badgers (22-5, 9-5 Big Ten), who swept the season series and moved a half-game ahead of the Hawkeyes (19-7, 8-5) in the Big Ten standings. "We like to get into our classroom and in the gym and teach guys things. Show them film, work with them," Ryan said. "Frank is one of those guys thats doing a heck of a job on his learning curve. Hes really been pretty sharp." No one was sharper than Kaminsky in the final 36 seconds. Josh Oglesbys jumper with 1:01 left put Iowa up 72-71, but Kaminsky answered with a jumper that gave Wisconsin a one-point lead. Kaminsky then stripped Iowas Roy Devyn Marble under the basket and hit two free throws as the Badgers went up 75-72 with 24.5 seconds left. "He was trying to make a play, and he presented the ball and I just hit it out of his hands. Thats one of those plays where its kind of up to the (referee) to see what theyre going to call. I thought I got it clean," Kaminsky said of the steal. "Im just happy it came out in our favour." Marble had 21 points and 11 assists for the Hawkeyes, who lost their third home game in four tries. Marble could have milked the shot clock down to just over a second on the games biggest play. He instead attacked the rim and paid for it with a turnover that the Hawkeyes didnt recover from. "You call a play and then hes got to read it. Thats what he did," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. This was just the second game in two weeks for Iowa. The Hawkeyes were off ahead of last Saturdays 82-70 win at Penn State, and Tuesdays postponement at Indiana gave the Hawkeyes an extra week off. After a rather rusty start, Iowa asserted itself in the second half. Marble hit a 3 and Aaron White followed with a strong drive to the hoop that put the Hawkeyes ahead 62-58 with 6:27 left. The Badgers seemed flummoxed at times by Iowas zone defence, scoring just 20 points in the first 16 minutes of the second half. Still, Wisconsin tied it at 66-all with 3:18 left on a three-point play by Nigel Hayes, and freshman Bronson Koenigs jumper put the Badgers ahead 71-70 with 1:21 left. "Hes a good player. Youre going to see a lot more of him over the next few years," Ryan said of Koenig, who had a career-high 12 points. Iowa was forced to make a rare lineup change. Forward Zach McCabe started in place of Melsahn Basabe, who was limited to just a minute because of illness. Basabe is one of Iowas top interior defenders, and the Badgers took advantage of his absence early on. Wisconsin hit 12 of its first 16 shots, and Dekkers 3 put the Badgers ahead 34-24. Wisconsin shot 57 per cent from the field in the first half, and Koenig matched his previous career high of 10 points in just 10 minutes as the Badgers led 40-31. But Wisconsin missed its first six shots after the break and Iowa eventually retook the lead, 52-51, with 10:55 left. Oglesby matched a season high with 17 points for Iowa. But White was held to just four points, and McCabes 3-point attempt with less than 20 seconds left and the Hawkeyes down 3 never reached the rim. "It didnt come out of his hand cleanly, but he was wide open," McCaffery said of McCabe. "I dont think hell make any excuses." Kaminsky shares Ryans assertion that shot-making has keyed Wisconsins recent surge. But Kaminsky added that the belief that those shots are going to fall has been whats really reinvigorated the Badgers over the past three weeks. "Having the confidence to step up and take those shots is back. I think we had that at the start of the season. It kind of went away for a little bit, and now I think we have that back," Kaminsky said. Achraf Hakimi Jersey . QUARTERBACKS Carson Palmer (vs Colts)Last week: 30/42, 419 yards, 2 TDsWinners of their last three and now tied for the final wild card spot in the NFC, the Cardinals are worth keeping an eye on. Maximilian Philipp Jersey . Hes the same player he always was, only now his efforts are being rewarded. The rookie manager has made a habit of heaping praise on others when things are going well, and accepting criticism when they arent.  But in the case of Hurtado, its what the coach is NOT saying that may be the secret to a superb run of form. http://www.footballdortmundpro.com/Kids-Mario-Gotze-Jersey/.

But what are their strengths and how far can some of Uniteds next generation go in the game?McGuinness spoke to Sky Sports to discuss three of the brightest hopes... Timothy Fosu-Mensah has the pace to get himself out of trouble Timothy Fosu-MensahAge: 18Nationality: DutchAppearances: 10McGuinness says: Timothy really settled in during his second year at United. Hes got wow factor pace and acceleration. I mean, really, his acceleration is outstanding, which can get him out of trouble when defending and means hes quick to cover people. Its quite dramatic and the crowd have seen that on occasions when hes suddenly burst past people.It surprises opponents whether in defence or midfield because a big strength of his is to run into spaces. They are his main strengths. The other side to that is he will have to get a consistency of concentration and the ability to be reliable, but hes certainly got the attributes. Andreas Pereira still needs to learn how to become a team player Andreas PereiraAge: 20Nationality: BrazilianAppearances: 11McGuinness says: Andreas Perreira is one of these players who could be something special in the end.dddddddddddd At the moment, hes got to learn how to fit into the team and how to be a team player. But he has the belief and the ego to be a top player - and, importantly, the talent to go with it. Hes got the running power too.Its just a case of putting it together and knowing how to play your role in the team. Sometimes these players with real talent, they want to show how good they are all the time but when youre a playmaker, you have to make everyone else play well. Im sure hell learn that and Im sure there could be a top player emerging when hes 25 or 26. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson faces a battle with Luke Shaw at left-back Cameron Borthwick-JacksonAge: 19Nationality: EnglishAppearances: 14McGuinness says: Hes another local lad who has just been a steady-Eddie and kept improving. Hes done very well when hes been in the first team, looked very calm and with no nerves. Hes been strong defensively in winning balls in the air and not being beaten but there have also been some fantastic crosses going forwards.Hell have a battle on his hands when Luke Shaw is back because hes a fantastic young player as well but to have two young players like that bodes well for the future.
