Trojans to travel the Oregon trail

first_imgThe Trojans aim to end their longest losing streak since 2003 when they face Oregon (13-5, 4-2) at Matthew Knight Arena on Thursday. The Pac-12 matchup is the first of a two-game road trip for USC in the Beaver State, concluding on Saturday with a game against Oregon State    (11-7, 1-5).Leader of the pack · In last week’s loss to the Bruins, Maurice Jones was the only Trojan in double figures. Jones scored 13 points. – Luciano Nunez | Daily TrojanThe Ducks are coming off a 59-57 road victory against Arizona, handing the Wildcats their second home loss of the season. The Trojans, meanwhile, are trying to move on from a blowout loss against crosstown rival UCLA.“We have to get back on track,” said freshman guard Alexis Moore, “It’s obvious we need a win, so our goal is to get better in practice every day.”USC coach Kevin O’Neill echoed similar sentiments as his team geared up for a difficult inter-conference clash.“Win or lose, your job is to do your job on every play, every single day,” O’Neill said. “That’s the way we approach practice, shooting, individual work, all of that.”Even as the losses continue to pile up, the Trojans have maintained a positive outlook regarding their upcoming schedule.“In terms of team morale, we still have to stick together and keep spirits high in order to finish out the rest of the season,” Moore said.One point of emphasis for the Trojans against Oregon will be the rebounding battle, especially after getting dominated on the boards by the Bruins by a wide margin — 66-47.“I’m going to have to start really focusing on [rebounding],” said redshirt sophomore forward Dewayne Dedmon.The Ducks are a veteran-laden team, starting three seniors and two juniors. Meanwhile, the Trojans are a much younger squad without any seniors logging significant minutes.“[It’s] not just that [the Ducks are] older, they’re talented,” O’Neill said. “They’re playing well right now, and they’re playing at home. It’s going to be a challenge. We’ll have to play our best game to have a chance to win.”In addition to their edge in the experience department, Oregon has multiple shooters whom the Trojans will need to keep from getting hot from beyond the arc.“We basically have to run them off of threes and contest all their two-point jump shots,” Moore said. “Obviously they’re going to make some shots, but our goal is to try to minimize that as much as possible. We have to get up in them and pressure them and force the drive.”Forward E.J. Singler, perhaps the Ducks’ biggest offensive threat, garnered high praise from O’Neill.“I don’t think there’s any question. … He’s one of the best [in the Pac-12],” O’Neill said. “Singler is the guy that glues this team together, and he has a bunch of guys he’s played with that understand the game.”After Thursday’s game, the Trojans will take on the Pac-12’s most potent offensive squad, Oregon State. The Beavers are averaging 82.7 points per game — tied for fifth-highest in the country and nearly 30 points higher than USC’s current output (53.6 points per game).As the Trojans play out the two-game set against Oregon teams and move on in Pac-12 play, O’Neill has a message for disgruntled USC hoops fans in search of some victories.“I understand [fans’] frustration,” O’Neill said. “I’m frustrated too, the players are frustrated … We appreciate their loyalty, we appreciate them cheering for their team.”last_img read more

Wembley Stadium supporting ‘Lights Out’ campaign

first_imgAt 11pm on 4 August 1914 the lights around Europe went out as Britain declared war on Germany. As the moment approached, the British Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey made the famous remark: “The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime”. On Monday night Wembley will join the UK wide ‘Lights Out’ campaign to commemorate the start of one of the darkest periods in British history. The national stadium will show the words ‘Lest We Forget’ on the screen from 9pm and then at 10pm the screen will be switched off in line with the Lights Out campaign. Lights Out, working closely with the Royal British Legion, will be one of the largest participatory events of its kind ever seen in the UK, and will complement the candlelit vigil held at Westminster Abbey on Monday.last_img read more

Week 16 Fantasy QB Rankings: Several surprising quarterback sleepers on the start ’em, sit ’em bubble

first_imgWEEK 16 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerBoth the Dolphins and Bengals are in the top 10 in fantasy points allowed to QBs, so statistically, these are good matchups. And, statistically, these are QBs who can take advantage of favorable matchups. Realistically, though, you probably don’t want to trust either with your fantasy championships on the line. However, they are the top widely available streamers, and they’re better than a lot of bigger-name QBs this week, such as Tom Brady (vs. Bills), Derek Carr (@ Chargers), Carson Wentz (vs. Cowboys), Josh Allen (@ Patriots), Baker Mayfield (vs. Ravens), and even Kirk Cousins (vs. Packers). If you were counting on any of those guys, you might be forced to go with FitzMagic or the Red Rifle. WEEK 16 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endIf you have to dig even deeper, you should be able to live with Gardner Minshew (@ Falcons) or Drew Lock (vs. Lions) thanks to highly favorable matchups, and even Mitchell Trubisky (vs. Chiefs), who’s averaged 298.5 passing yards, 28.5 rushing yards, and 2.5 TDs over his past four games, is in play. The Chiefs are quietly solid against the pass, especially WRs, so Trubisky doesn’t have as much upside as you might think, but clearly he’s playing well and could be in position to run a lot next Sunday night. MORE WEEK 16: Waiver pickups | FAAB planning | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsBut, again, do you trust Trubisky with a fantasy title on the line? Probably not, but we see crazy Week 16 performances every year, and given all the tough matchups for decent starters this week, someone like Fitzpatrick, Dalton, Minshew, Lock, or Trubisky just might be who you have to turn to. WEEK 16 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPP It’s easy to think that Lamar Jackson and Deshaun Watson or Patrick Mahomes are the starting QBs in every fantasy football championship game, but you might be surprised by how many owners are streaming quarterbacks this time of year. In the Sporting News Experts League, Ryan Tannehill and Ryan Fitzpatrick were starting in the semis (the Tannehill team is in position to win, the Fitzpatrick team lost) against Jameis Winston and Drew Brees — nary a Jackson, Mahomes, Watson, or Russell Wilson to be found. Does that mean our Week 16 fantasy QB rankings are irrelevant…or more important that ever?Eh, let’s say both. If you’ve made your title game, chances are you’re set at QB — either because you have a stud or you’ve been preparing for this week and have your stream safely tucked away on your bench. But if you just want to weigh your options, there are several interesting candidates, starting with a Toilet Bowl matchup in Miami, where Ryan Fitzpatrick and Andy Dalton are squaring off.  Note: These rankings will be updated throughout the week, so check back for player movement and individual analysis.MORE WEEK 16 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderWeek 16 Fantasy QB RankingsThese rankings are for standard leagues with 4-point passing TDs.RankPlayer1Lamar Jackson, BAL @ CLE2Russell Wilson, SEA vs. ARZ3Deshaun Watson, HOU @ TB4Patrick Mahomes II, KC @ CHI5Jameis Winston, TB vs. HOU6Dak Prescott, DAL @ PHI7Drew Brees, NO @ TEN8Ryan Tannehill, TEN vs. NO9Matt Ryan, ATL vs. JAX10Philip Rivers, LAC vs. OAK11Aaron Rodgers, GB @ MIN12Kyler Murray, ARZ @ SEA13Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA vs. CIN14Andy Dalton, CIN @ MIA15Mitchell Trubisky, CHI vs. KC16Drew Lock, DEN vs. DET17Gardner Minshew, JAX @ ATL18Jimmy Garoppolo, SF vs. LAR19Kirk Cousins, MIN vs. GB20Carson Wentz, PHI vs. DAL21Jacoby Brissett, IND vs. CAR22Josh Allen, BUF @ NE23Derek Carr, OAK @ LAC24Jared Goff, LAR @ SF25Daniel Jones, NYG @ WAS26Baker Mayfield, CLE vs. BAL27Tom Brady, NE vs. BUF28Devlin Hodges, PIT @ NYJ29Dwayne Haskins, WAS vs. NYG30Sam Darnold, NYJ vs. PIT31Will Grier, CAR @ IND32David Blough, DET @ DENlast_img read more
