Brittney Sykes is more than a mentor to freshman Gabby Cooper

first_imgTheir relationship started when Sykes was picked to host Cooper on her official visit last year. It wasn’t unusual, as Sykes had already hosted plenty of current SU player before, including the Day sisters, Davida Dale and Abby Grant.But something about her connection with Cooper was different with the two immediately bonding. They had a shared high school experience, Sykes said, of coming close to, but never winning a state championship. The mutual understanding helped make that initial visit a success.Cooper, who’s from a suburb of Chicago, then came to watch Syracuse play in last year’s Final Four in Indianapolis. There, Sykes told her that she needed to come to SU to help them make it back there this year.She stepped into the role vacated by Brianna Butler last year as a 3-point shooter who had a constant green light. But she struggled with her shot, hitting just 25 percent from deep on nearly 70 attempts through the first six games.As the season nears its conclusion, Cooper’s level of play has elevated. Up until the Notre Dame game, she was averaging eight points per game. Over the last six games she’s bumped that to 14.7.“She’s had some games where she’s missed a lot of shots,” head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “But she’s really stayed with it and she’s been very consistent in her effort.”In the season opener against Rhode Island, Cooper became the first freshman to start for Syracuse since Alexis Peterson started halfway through her freshman year in February 2014.Sykes also had experienced being thrust into a big role as a freshman. She knew the pressure of having to take on a large scoring role for her team, and of having to play at a level that isn’t asked from most freshman.Ally Moreo | Photo EditorExcept when she was a freshman, Sykes said she didn’t have somebody who had her experience, somebody to teach her how to navigate the newness with a need for results. She’s trying to be that person for Cooper, and in return is getting something too.“She doesn’t know this, but she taught me a lot this year that she won’t ever understand,” Sykes said. “She has helped me to grow as a person, she’s helped me to grow as a player.”Cooper and Sykes laughed when describing their relationship in the postgame press conference, especially when Cooper called it “weird.” Sykes said that she calls Cooper her kid.The two don’t have much time left together as teammates. At most, they’ll have five games. They could also have just one more if they don’t find a way around four-time defending national champions Connecticut.Sykes has prepped Cooper to take over her role next year after she’s gone. And in taking Cooper under her wing, she gained a new experience she hadn’t had in her basketball career before.“Haven’t really met a freshman like her before,” Sykes said. “It’s just one of those things where you see something in somebody and you just want to grab a hold of it.” Comments STORRS, Conn. — Brittney Sykes and Gabby Cooper have a tradition of touching foreheads before every game. The Syracuse starters stare at each other, getting into game mode by pumping each other up and offering words of encouragement.Usually, Sykes said, it’s just little words of encouragement and reminders to play strong defense. Before Saturday’s game against Iowa State, Sykes had something else to say.“Today I just told her,” Sykes said. “… ‘I need you to break the single-game record for 3s.’”The duo led eighth-seeded Syracuse (22-10, 11-5 Atlantic Coast) on Saturday in a dominating victory over ninth-seeded Iowa State (18-13, 9-9 Big 12). Cooper fulfilled Sykes request, setting the SU program record for 3s made in an NCAA Tournament game by knocking down eight, including five in the first quarter. Sykes followed up Cooper’s hot first quarter with 21 first-half points in the Orange’s 85-65 victory.The relationship between Sykes and Cooper — the former a fifth-year senior whose name is plastered in the SU record book, the latter a freshman who has started every game this year — goes past that of just a mentor and a mentee.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“She’s been amazing. She’s my best friend,” Cooper said. “She leads me in ways that I can’t even describe.” Published on March 18, 2017 at 8:01 pm Contact Tomer: tdlanger@syr.edu | @tomer_langercenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Football: Reliving some of Camp Randall’s greatest moments

first_imgWith all college and professional sports postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19, there is little to look forward to for Badger sports fans in the immediate future. At the beginning of the crisis, it was believed that football beginning in the fall was one event that could be counted on to continue as planned. The NFL made it clear that they had no plans to delay their season or even limit fans’ ability to attend their 16 game season. Yet, even these plans are now called into question as this pandemic continues to wreak havoc on American society and the world at large. As unfortunate as it may be for all those competitors and fans who were looking forward to the beginning of football in the fall, there is a greater and greater chance that large gatherings will still not be allowed roughly four months from now. Even if college and NFL seasons are able to continue, it is hard to imagine they can continue with crowds of 80,000-plus fans attending their games on a regular basis. For Wisconsin, this means Camp Randall is increasingly becoming an improbable destination for flocks of Badger fans come August. With almost everything in the sports world in question, it’s a great time to look back at some of the best moments in Camp Randall history.Arguably the best regular season win in Wisconsin history and the most monumental upset pulled off at Camp Randall, the Badgers’ win over the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes in 2010 starts off our list. Badgers teach No.1 OSU how to BuckyAfter the Badgers defeated the Ohio State University Buckeyes 31-18 Saturday night, thousands of fans took to the field in Read…The Buckeyes entered Madison undefeated and boasting a top-12 win over Miami of Florida. Yet, the stage was set early for a special upset victory as David Gilreath returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. I’ve seen some loud moments during the games I’ve attended at Camp Randall, but even through the grainy-quality YouTube video of the ESPN broadcast, you can tell this crowd was on another level. This is certainly a time that I would pay quite a bit of money to have the ability to witness in person. John Clay would go on to punch in another Badger score just five minutes into the first quarter, giving the Badgers a commanding 14 point lead early in the game. The Ohio State showed life late, though, as they brought the game within three points early in the fourth quarter — they clearly weren’t intimidated by jump around. With unrelenting defensive stops, led predominately by Wisconsin legend J.J. Watt, the Badgers ultimately held on for the remainder of the game and came out on top 31–18.Pandemonium ensued. Fans flooded the field in celebration of a win for the ages. It’s the type of win every competitor hopes to have just once in their life. More relevant for the rest of us, it’s the type of game we can only hope to be lucky enough to attend. I will forever envy those who were fortunate enough to be in Camp Randall that night in October of 2010. The second moment I feel warrants recognition as one of the great moments in the history of Camp Randall is the first ever “Jump Around.” This has become a signature tradition that makes its way into multiple areas of university culture, including Badger apparel and even commencement ceremonies. It was homecoming night of 1998 and, “Jump Around” was a five-year-old hit song which had largely fallen by the wayside in the ensuing years. Yet, for some reason, it found its way onto Camp Randall’s playlist that night and sparked a movement that would be suspended shortly in 2003 only out of concern that the vibrations caused by the thousands of jumping bodies would damage the stadium that was under construction at the time.UW Athletics: Top Badger sports moments to enjoy during COVID-19 pandemicWith live sports absent for the time being, sports fans worldwide have been isolated at home with what feels like Read…For students and all Badger fans who have found their way to a football game at Camp Randall sometime over the last 21 years, there is little that can compare to the uniqueness of the “Jump Around” tradition and the energy it brings to the stadium. Even if you end up out of breath after the whole ordeal, it always seems to spark a rally from the crowd when the Badgers need it most. Those who played that song for the first time against Purdue in 1998 surely didn’t know they had sparked a tradition, but the lasting impact the choice had on Badger culture is the reason it warrants a spot on this list.This list is far from exhaustive, but the third and final moment I’ll bring up here as part of the highlights of Camp Randall’s history is former Wisconsin band director Mike Leckrone’s final fifth quarter celebration. Leckrone is undoubtedly one of the great all-time figures in Wisconsin lore and his image is one that will always be tied to Wisconsin’s impressive band program.The fifth quarter was his brain-child and it continues to inspire joy from all those who choose to stay a little longer after a football game and witness the absurdity it offers. There’s little that it can be compared to, and it’s one of those things that’s hard to describe to someone who has never experienced it before.Especially after winning a big game or taking down a rival, there is little that can match the celebration and ridiculousness that is all wrapped up in the fifth quarter. Even after the Badgers lost their rival game to Minnesota in November 2018, rows of Badger faithful stayed back to honor Leckrone and his massive contributions to UW during his final fifth quarter.Football: Top recruits, developing talent leave Badgers primed to reload in key positions for 2020 seasonAs the 2020 NFL draft approaches at the end of next month, Badgers Jonathan Taylor, Zack Baun, Chris Orr and Read…It was a wonderful moment and a great sendoff for a man who has dedicated so much of his life to improving the Wisconsin band and the experience of generations of fans who visited Camp Randall. Even if Camp Randall’s status as the center of UW during the Fall is in Jeopardy, it is always worthwhile to take a look back and what makes it such a special place for everyone who attends UW or calls themselves a Badger fan.last_img read more

Chilwell confident ahead of Fulham test

first_imgLeicester City defender Ben Chilwell is confident of getting a positive result when they travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.Chilwell is buoyed by Leicester City’s a six-game unbeaten run in all competitions since mid-October, despite the fact that four of the six games ended in draws.“Even though we’ve not played as well as we could have, we’ve managed to get the results,” Chilwell told the club’s website.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“The effort has been 100 percent there. The Brighton game’s a good example of that, where we’ve gone down to 10 men, going 1-0 down quite early in the game and we’ve ended up getting a draw.“If you said to any of us in the 20th minute of the game, when Madders [James Maddison] got sent off, that that was going to be the case, I think we’d have definitely taken that.“The effort’s there and although we haven’t been getting the wins that we would have liked, the performances are there and with the run we’ve got coming up over Christmas, we can get a lot of points.”last_img read more

Four juveniles due in court for alleged Chula Vista restaurant assault

It allegedly stemmed from an ongoing feud originating from a dispute on social media between the victim and one of the juvenile suspects, police said.Uy and Pasunting pleaded not guilty to assault and battery charges Thursday afternoon and were being held in lieu of $100,000 bail each. The four minor defendants are scheduled to appear in San Diego juvenile court this morning for a detention hearing — the juvenile court equivalent of an arraignment.The victim was with his girlfriend at the eatery in the 1300 block of East Palomar Street when he was confronted, beaten and robbed, Capt. Phil Collum said.The boy was unable to positively identify his assailants, Collum said.“A video of the attack was shared on social media and gained significant media attention,” Collum said. “All six suspects were identified, in part, by the video.”School officials and the management of the restaurant also helped police track down the suspects, according to Collum.On Tuesday, investigators arrested Pasunting and Uy for their alleged roles in the crime. Both had attended Mark Twain High, a continuation school with a campus at Morse High School.The other four suspects, who range in age from 15 to 17, also were taken into custody Tuesday. They all attended Morse High School prior to being suspended following the fracas at the restaurant.Their names were withheld because they are minors.The crime “appeared to be related to an ongoing online dispute between the victim and one of the juvenile attackers,” Collum said. “The dispute began last month, when the victim and suspect got into a heated exchange on social media over comments made to one of the victim’s friends.”RELATED: Six suspects arrested in restaurant assault on teen Updated: 9:07 AM KUSI Newsroom, April 22, 2019 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwittercenter_img Posted: April 22, 2019 Four juveniles due in court for alleged Chula Vista restaurant assault KUSI Newsroom last_img read more
