Bowman tore the anterior cruciate and medial
« on: March 15, 2019, 03:55:07 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. Cheap Reds Jerseys . Lynn was tied for 16th entering the fourth round, six shots behind leader Paul Waring.

Cheap MLB Jerseys . -- David Price didnt think he would be in Port Charlotte this spring. Johnny Bench Jersey .com) - Jahlil Okafor had 21 points, Tyus Jones scored 16 with 10 assists and No.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - NaVorro Bowman realizes that just by strapping on a helmet again and stepping onto the practice field he could provide the San Francisco 49ers and their defence a serious emotional lift when they desperately need one.Even if his surgically repaired left knee isnt quite ready for game day, and might not be before seasons end. Almost certainly not in time for Sundays return to Seattle, where he injured the knee in an NFC championship game loss last January.Im going to get out there when I feel 100 per cent, lets be clear on that, Bowman said Tuesday. Throughout this rehab process, Ive been doing everything to get me this far. Now its time for some football activity, some quick-reaction, things like that. Of course I want to be there, if Im ready to go. It just comes to if Im ready. Im listening to the doctors. Theyre being great, cautious about what I do. As far as me, once Im out there, I dont know how to go slow. I just know one speed.San Francisco activated the star linebacker Tuesday to the 53-man roster at the conclusion of its 21-day window to do so before it would have had to decide to rule out any chance of a return and end his season. The 49ers (7-6) are in a must-win mode the rest of the way to have even a slim chance of making the playoffs for the fourth straight year under coach Jim Harbaugh.After back-to-back embarrassing losses to Seattle and Oakland, Harbaughs future is in question.Weve been on an up-and-down slope this year, but Ive been behind these guys since Day 1, Bowman said. Its hard to go out there and play teams like Seattle where youve got young guys that havent been in those type of games yet. Just me putting on a helmet again, guys seeing me put the work in, just showing them that I really do love this game, hopefully it will raise the morale of the team.Bowman, for his part, never considered not trying to play in 2014.While defensive co-ordinator Vic Fangio said Bowman would likely need a couple of weeks of practice before playing, it might depend on the teams chances whhether he does get in a game at all.dddddddddddd The 49ers havent said whether Bowman will practice this week.Its obviously big. Hes not just a defensive leader for our team but last year I think he was the best defensive player in the NFL, linebacker Dan Skuta said. Im happy for him, just to have another great player out on the field.Being without Bowman was a huge blow to a defence that missed pass-rushing specialist Aldon Smith for the first nine games because of a suspension and lost Patrick Willis for the year a month ago because of a strained muscle in his left big toe that required surgery. He was hurt in the third quarter at St. Louis on Oct. 13.Regardless of Bowmans game-day status, having him as a potential option means so much.Thats awesome. I know they might want to ease him into this, given its been awhile and hes fresh off his injury, second-year safety Eric Reid said. Its been different for me a lot, being that last year being my rookie year, all I knew was Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman sitting there in front of me making plays, Reid said. This year, theres some new faces, but theyve been playing great. I dont think we can ask them to play any better. Its been different but it will be awesome to have him back.Bowman tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his knee then had surgery to repair the ACL. In recent weeks he has begun to cut again and simulate football movements.He was an All-Pro in 2011, 12 and last year, and earned Pro Bowl selections in 12 and 13.Any time a player of his calibre becomes available its always a positive thing, punter Andy Lee said. Hes been working really hard to try to get back on the field. Hes definitely somebody that if he can get back out there, why wouldnt it help us?The 49ers cleared roster room by placing second-year tight end Vance McDonald on injured reserve with a back injury. McDonald has appeared in 23 games and has 10 receptions for 149 yards for his career.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
