  • Barkley’s understudies prepare for the future

    first_imgThe USC football team wrapped up its second scrimmage at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday. The scrimmage, which was open to the public, emphasized the immense competition occurring during spring practices.As spring practices come to a close in two weeks, USC coach Lane Kiffin emphasized the need to continue individual skills development. “I don’t really think there is any real big thing but just continuing with individual development,” Kiffin said. “Guys like Tre Madden have come over with not a lot of experience there and continue to develop them in their roles.”Back-up battle · Freshman quarterback Max Wittek is battling fellow freshman Cody Kessler for the second spot on the depth chart. – Corey Marquetti | Daily TrojanωAside from major roster changes, like Madden switching to running back, much of the spring practice attention has been fixed on who will be the back-up quarterback. Following Saturday’s scrimmage, Kiffin stated that he would be confident playing either of the quarterbacks [Wittek and Kessler]. Yet Kiffin is not sure who will earn the number two position.“I would be very comfortable with both of them. I think they are doing a great job,” Kiffin said. “Neither of them has gone beyond the other to know who the No. 2 is yet.”ωThe quarterback competition for the coveted backup position has not phased redshirt freshman quarterback Max Wittek.Wittek believes that the quarterback competition is necessary to prep for the future.“If you go out there trying to compete to be the backup, that is not going to serve you well in the future when Matt is gone,” Wittek said. “You have to compete to be the starter every day.”As emphasized by Kiffin, players are using spring ball as an opportunity to work on their individual skills before the season officially commences.ωRedshirt junior offensive tackle Kevin Graf has been switched to the right side during spring practices.“Right now, I’m focusing on my game and getting better at it,” Graf said. “You can always get better at everything. Most specifically, I have been working on my run-and-pass game.”Entering the 2012 season, Graf is asserting himself as a leader on and off the field.“I am one of the older guys and one of the leaders now,” Graf said. “I’m trying to be vocal and I am trying to be that guy that is always there for everybody, hyping them up, if they ever need help giving it.”ωThough the scrimmage was open to the public, having family and fans in the Coliseum seats does not worry the USC Trojans.“I don’t think it makes much of a difference at all,” Wittek said. “We come out here and practice whether it’s over at USC or here in the Coliseum. I think we take it as it is and the more people that come out, the better it is because we have to get used to playing in that environment.”The Trojans have two weeks remaining in official spring practices before returning to the Coliseum for the spring game on April 14.last_img read more

  • Angels GM Billy Eppler addresses fan questions in Q&A

    first_imgWhile we are waiting to see if and when the baseball season will start, Angels general manager Billy Eppler took some time on Friday morning to answer questions submitted by fans, via Twitter, email and Facebook.Although Eppler couldn’t answer many of the specific questions about how the baseball season may unfold this year, he spoke in general terms about his optimism that there will be a season, despite the current Covid-19 pandemic.“There are a lot of intelligent and well-thought rational people talking about a lot of different ideas,” Eppler said. “With that type of brain power and those resources, I am optimistic that something can get done.”Beyond that, Eppler addressed his day-to-day life during the quarantine, the draft, the way this year’s team was built and a seminal moment as a young baseball fan. The answers have been edited for length and clarity. A: He actually threw a bullpen today (Friday). He threw 15 pitches today, fastballs only. He threw another one earlier this week, on Monday.Q: Where are we with signing (Andrelton) Simmons to an extension? @AckriteHalo (Simmons is set to be a free agent after the 2020 season.)A: We’ve had internal discussions about Andrelton, more at the start of spring training. With the circumstances of Covid-19 and how baseball and the world were going to change, and what kind of accommodations we would make, we haven’t really had the opportunity to stay engaged on that. Ultimately there haven’t been any conversations with Andrelton or his representatives.Q: What is your approach in the draft? Is it best player available or are you looking for a specific tool/tools in players? @GrifCanningplsA: With the draft we take a best-player approach, but generally we do gravitate to “toolsy” players. We do put a premium on size, speed, strength and athleticism. You can rank in a range, but then once you get them in a range, you use separators, like the interview, the makeup, the statistics, was he in a very strong conference. All of those little elements become separators. Yes, it’s the best player available, but we have some nuance available based off things like makeup, character and injury history and so on and so forth.Q: With a log-jammed corner infield and outfield, is there any merit to Taylor Ward – and his improved bat – picking up a catcher’s mitt again? @danmansometimesA: Good question. With all of our players, we hold individual meetings in the first week of spring training. One of the things that we conveyed to Taylor was that his avenue to making this team is as a corner outfielder. We’re going to dabble with you in center field a little in some games. Don’t be surprised if we throw you out there at the back end of game. And if you do make this team, you will be catcher No. 3. It might be worth catching a bullpen or two as we get deeper into games. You could find yourself back there. (As for playing catcher regularly), we haven’t had those discussions.Q: Knowing that pitching was the main need of this team going into the offseason, what caused your decision to add another high priced bat rather than break up that money for 2 or 3 quality pitchers? @FishkillergalloA: We looked at every single one of the free agents, pitchers and position players. We look overall at what productivity we would expect out of that player. A couple days before Thanksgiving, (Joe) Maddon, myself and (John) Carpino got on a plane and flew to Atlanta to meet with Zack Wheeler. We pursued Wheeler pretty aggressively. Ultimately he and his wife expressed a desire to remain a little closer to the East Coast (signing with the Philadelphia Phillies). Then with Gerrit Cole, we put together something that was at that time the largest free agent contract the Angels had ever handed out. The largest free agent contract for a pitcher ever. We stepped in there very aggressively. We made a hard run at that. We saw how that ended up eventually with the winter meetings. So when we got to that point and Gerrit signed (with the New York Yankees), we pivoted immediately to the next best player on the board for us, and that was Anthony Rendon. Probably 12 hours (after Cole agreed with the Yankees), we already put a framework in place and it felt like we were fairly locked in to (Rendon) at that time. That’s where we felt we were going to get the best return on investment at that moment in time.Q: Does the delay of the season change the potential plans for prospects on their way to the bigs? For instance, if Jo Adell wasn’t going to make the opening roster in March, does the delayed season open that possibility? @FletchWRLDA: That’s a good question. With prospects that were competing for a spot on the major league club, we needed to see them play. That was the way they were going to make their way to the team. If the players still had still more seasoning needed, then we can’t achieve that until they get those tests. The best way to get those tests is to be playing baseball. It doesn’t change the potential plan.Q: If you weren’t a baseball GM, what other career would you be doing? @CanHitWRISPA: I went to one year of law school while I was an area scout. I probably would have continued going to law school and finished that and become some kind of litigator, or using it in some fashion.Q: What was your most memorable or exciting baseball moment growing up? -@JEllisPA: Steve Garvey homer, 1984 NLCS (for the Padres) to push it Game 5. Homer in the ninth at Jack Murphy Stadium. My dad had tickets to the game. I didn’t make the cut. No joke. There were 2 tickets. I was in the parking lot tailgating. Myself and my sisters would sit in the parking lot. They were older so they could make sure I wasn’t getting lost or into too much trouble. I was watching on a black-and-white TV in the parking lot, and Garvey goes deep. I was going nuts in the parking lot. I was 9 years old. That was a really memorable moment. That’s where the hook got set.Q: As a college student studying with the goal of getting into baseball, just how important is this knowledge of computer programming to front offices and what language is most valuable to you and your staff? -Grant CarverRelated Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros center_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Q: What kind of work are you able to do during this time with so many unanswered questions about the season? Are you already working on plans for next season? — Andrew WilsonA: Right now we are holding conference calls with draft prospects. We are doing Zoom calls with candidates for our first pick at No. 10. We are offering them the opportunity to ask us a bunch of questions. It’s a unique time for everybody. I have some empathy for those kids that potentially lost their senior year of high school or their junior year of college. And our quantitative department has plenty of time to get to projects that have been on the board but that we haven’t had the bandwidth or time to complete (under normal circumstances). We’re able to put together some pretty interesting tools and models that ultimately can just make us more efficient. As for next season, I have a depth chart for about two to three years out, and I am always glancing at the columns to the right to see what could be coming.Q: Is there a point where if this season is not looking like it’s going to happen, will Griffin Canning have Tommy John surgery? – @KingJDub25A: Surgery wasn’t recommended in Griffin’s case. It was something that we talked about and ultimately the different physicians we had him see didn’t recommend it. We would not proactively subject him to that surgery unless there was new evidence or a new injury that took place. He is doing good. His throwing program is back to 120 to 150 feet this week, at about 70 to 80 percent intensity. That would put him on track to be on a mound in seven to 10 days.Q: Any update on (Shohei) Ohtani? Where he’s at pitching wise? @Big_Jermmm A: Computer programmming’s a good skill set to have in a front office if you’re going to work on the development or analytics side. If you are going to work in general baseball ops or scouting or in (player) development, it’s not necessary. Most of our programming is done in SQL and R. Having a physics background will really help you. A general statistics background and speaking a second language are also important. There are a number of things. If you can have degrees in all of them, great.Q: How have you been getting through the quarantine when not doing Angels/baseball things?  Any crazy panic Amazon purchases?  What shows are you binge watching?  -Klay ChavezA: I jumped into the Tiger King world. It was fairly entertaining. I finished Ozark. Usually around 8:30 at night, our kids (5- and 2-year-old sons) are in bed and all the dishes are done and the house is relatively quiet, so my wife and I carve out an hour to an hour and a half to put on a show. We have date nights twice a week where we go outside and put on some music to recreate a date without having a sitter come over.

  • Marcus Morris finds opportunity – and fans –with Clippers

    first_img Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Shamet said he’s kept a close eye on the Morris twins in the NBA too, including this season, when Marcus was averaging a career-high 19.6 points per game with the New York Knicks before being traded to L.A.“Obviously he’s had a hell of a year this year,” Shamet said. “Kind of coming into his own and making a real name for himself.”Now, as a member of the Clippers, Morris hopes that he’ll be known as a contributor on a championship team – no matter what that means for his stats.The ninth-year forward is averaging nine fewer points on nearly five fewer shots with the Clippers, who are 5-3 in games he’s played.“You just see a guy that wants to win,” said forward Paul George, who will return to Oklahoma City, where he spent two seasons, on Tuesday (5 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket) for the second time this season.Related Articles “When you play for a winning team it’s about sacrificing and giving up to make the team better, and he’s doing that,” George added. “He wants to win and you can see it, and you can tell by his approach.”That’s absolutely the case, said Morris, whose assist (1.6), steal (0.9) and blocked shot (1) per-game averages are up slightly as a Clipper, despite a dip in playing time.“I’m happy to be a part of something bigger than myself, and trying to get a championship,” he said after the finally healthy Clippers extended their winning streak Sunday to four games. “It’s exciting playing here, and I’m excited.”Having played with him in Houston, Patrick Beverley said he expects Morris to make an impact come playoff time.“You guys haven’t really seen anything yet,” Beverley said. “He can do a lot of things. He can put the ball in the basket; he’s tough – the thing I love about him, he’s tough. He’s willing to take and make big shots. He’s willing to get timely stops that need to be, big-time rebounds that need to be, and he’s a dog.”Shamet, the longtime fan, might know something about that. “There are still some moments where it’s pretty cool, getting to play with a guy that I was growing up watching. You kind of take it for granted on a day-to-day basis, but it’s good to be reminded.”Morris said the Clippers’ second-year sharpshooter has shared those stories with him since he joined the team following the Feb. 6 trade.“He actually told me that the other day,” Marcus Morris said. “I feel old and I feel good at the same time. … And one thing about Kansas – kids in Kansas, they love KU.”Turns out that Morris became a fan of Shamet’s while he was honing his game in Wichita, leading the Shockers to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances.“I was watching him in college, actually,” Morris said. “I used to watch him a lot.” What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES — Seventh-grade Landry Shamet would have been thrilled by the trade last month that brought Marcus Morris to the Clippers.Who are we kidding? Twenty-two-year-old Landry Shamet was thrilled.Before he went on to star at Wichita State, Shamet grew up hooping in Kansas City, Missouri, rooting hard for the Kansas Jayhawks – and their standout twins Marcus and Markieff Morris.“I was a KU fan growing up,” Shamet said. “I was a die-hard. I lived in Kansas City, I was an hour away from Lawrence. I watched all the games. My uncle, through his job, he would get tickets to a preseason game every year, so we would go every year. … I was in seventh grade and I was watching him and his brother.

  • NBA, NBPA announce $300 million foundation to economically empower Black communities

They will reach particularly in NBA markets through local organizations and charitable partners that they hope will create lasting economic change to swing the scales of racial justice.The NBA restart in Disney World has been a platform for social justice messages, from plastering “BLACK LIVES MATTER” on the court, to players speaking out in media conferences, to messages on the back of their jerseys. But all parties in the NBA have said their larger commitment lies in creating lasting change to institutions that have created economic, legal and even health disparities that disproportionately hurt Black communities.“The creation of this foundation is an important step in developing more opportunities for the Black community,” said NBPA President Chris Paul in the statement.  “I am proud of our league and our players for their commitment to this long-term fight for equality and justice, and I know we will continue to find ways to keep pushing for meaningful institutional change.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThe foundation will aim to help Black men and women get their first jobs, get jobs out of high school and/or college, and advance their careers once employed.

  • Loose play is costly California falls to Chadwick

    first_imgTuesday’s 16-8 loss to visiting Chadwick was another example of the Condors’ inexperience. “We gave them a lot of open looks (at the goal),” coach Jeff Boline said. “We’re just not picking up the loose player, particularly the one with the ball, and that’s just our inexperience.” A wide-open Katie Hazelrigg then set the tone for the game when she rifled a shot from 7 meters into the left corner while Condors defenders just watched. The Patriots led, 4-2, after one quarter, and although they increased the advantage in the second quarter, California trailed only 7-3 to stay within striking distance at halftime. Chadwick all but slammed the door shut in the third quarter when Hazelrigg scored four of her game-high eight goals and the Patriots led, 12-4, going into the fourth quarter. “We were hot and cold today, which is pretty much the way we’ve been playing,” Boline said. “At times, we’ll not play well, and at other times, we actually look good, like we’re taking care of business. “We have moments when we look like were making strides in the right direction, but we’re definitely not where we want to be, especially with league starting next week. We need to make some improvements.” Carney and Vanessa Justin led the Condors with three goals each. Kern shared the spotlight for Hazelrigg for Chadwick, scoring six goals.

She had none in the second half when the Patriots scored on nine of 12 attempts. In fairness, at times it looked like Mancilla was on her own when the Condors’ loose defense allowed the Patriots to make their attempts against little, if any, pressure. In contrast, Chadwick goalie Zoe Naggotte needed to make only three saves. Most of California’s misses were way wide or too high. California (3-9) scored the first goal three minutes into the game when Sarah Fernandez made a soft pass to an open area and Maree Carney collected the ball and beat Naggotte with a throw from 4 meters.
