Nobody played more than 21 minutes and every player scored a minimum of four points.“We want to get them as much experience as we can,” head coach Raegan Pebley said. “I would love to be able to have a rotation that gets at least ten deep, to be able to stay fresh on the floor mentally and physically.”First-years Mikayla Christian, Ella Hellessey, Amber Ramirez and Kianna Ray all made their career debuts against Incarnate Word. At one point in the fourth quarter all four of TCU’s freshmen were on the court together, along with Moore.Ramirez, the first McDonald’s All-American in TCU history, posted a game-high three blocks.Pebley said the next game is always the most important one.“We have to train at a consistent level no matter what game is next or what game is coming in two weeks,” Pebley said. “Sam Houston State is the most important thing right now.”The Horned Frogs will face Sam Houston State on tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Ed & Rae Schollmaier Arena.

Achanta Sharath Kamal Blames Bureaucratic Process Behind Delay

first_imgNew Delhi: Ace paddler Achanta Sharath Kamal said that the cumbersome process of hiring a new coach for the Indian national team was a big reason as to why they were without a coach since the end of the Asian Games in September 2018. Italian Massimo Constantini, credited with turning around the fortunes of the country in the sport, left his post as head coach of the national team after the 2018 Asiad and it was only on Tuesday that new coach Dejan Papic was officially announced.Speaking during the opening press conference of the third season of Ultimate Table Tennis (UTT) on Wednesday, Kamal said that even after the Table Tennis Federation of India identified a coach, the bureaucratic process of completing the hiring, coupled by the fact that this was an election year slowed down the process significantly.“I think every time a coach left the national team, getting a new coach has been difficult because of the bureaucratic setup and because of the elections. I think the process (of signing a new coach) is a little cumbersome. Even though TTFI had identified a coach, it took its own time,” Kamal, representing Chennai Lions, said. The third season of the UTT starts on July 25 and ends on August 11.The 37-year-old said that new coach Papic’s role would be to adjust to the system that is in place at the moment instead of trying to make drastic changes with the 2020 Olympics just a year away. “There are many areas we need improvements on but for now, Tokyo 2020 is the focus. We now have a system in place and the players have carried on without the coach and have been doing well. Players like me and Sathiyan (Gnanasekaran) have been doing this for a long time without a coach. So we have to now come to terms with the coach that this is the way we have been doing it for a long time and so you need to come along into the system instead of trying to create a new system. You can create your system after the Olympics,” he said.Kamal said that the reason the Papic shouldn’t be trying to change too many things is that it takes time for players to understand and adjust to a new system and for the coach himself to know what works best for his wards. This normally takes a period of four years, which is the time between two Olympics or Commonwealth Games or Asian Games, and so imposing a new system so close to an Olympics is not good for the side’s prospects in Tokyo.

Clippers intend to carry this season’s winning culture forward

first_img Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum They accomplished all that despite featuring no All-Stars on a team that was overhauled halfway through the season, when they traded away six players, including then-leading scorer Tobias Harris, at the trade deadline — and then got better. They did that while starting two rookies in the backcourt, and with their top scorer coming off the bench.They did it, they said, by buying into a gritty, egalitarian approach.“It started from Day One,” said Lou Williams, who averaged 21.7 points and 7.7 assists off the bench in the postseason. “We didn’t have any ego problems. Every argument that we had was a basketball-related problem. And I’m thankful, this was a smooth year to play with these guys.”What’s next? Entering free agency, the Clippers are one of the NBA’s best positioned teams with the ability to pursue two maximum-salaried free agents. Reportedly, they’re focused on the Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard and Golden State’s Kevin Durant, who is expected to opt out of the final year of his current deal.“Previous Clippers offseasons we didn’t have any money, so those are the begging ones,” Rivers said. “Those are where you have minimum contracts and try to see who you can strike lightning in a bottle. We don’t have to do that. But we’re going to make the right choice, too. We’re not just going to spend money. Obviously there’s a lot of guys out there. If we get the ones we want we’ll use it. If not, we’ll just keep building away.” PLAYA VISTA — Still processing the season that just was, a handful of Clippers spoke Saturday from a raw, in-between space some 13 hours after their series-ending loss to the Golden State Warriors.Both proud of what they’d accomplished and disappointed it was over, they relished their part on a team so special it had opposing coaches expressing admiration and fans on their feet after Friday’s 129-110 loss. The Clippers also thought aloud a bit about the future, saying they expect to carry the same cultural tenets into next season — whatever the 2019-20 team looks like.“We know that we’re not going to have the exact team that we had last year, but we also know that we can change our team and still have the right culture,” Coach Doc Rivers said.Related Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 center_img For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory The Clippers moved on this season from their not-so-distant star-driven Lob City identity thanks to an inspired performance by a team lacking traditional star power. This group delighted in outdoing modest external expectations by winning 48 games, reaching the postseason in the cutthroat Western Conference and then pushing the two-time defending NBA champions to six games in the opening round. If the Clippers prove a desirable destination for some of the game’s most elite talents it’ll be because of how they’ve operated recently.“What’s been impressive is that they won while they were re-building,” Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said Friday. “It’s great for the league to see a team do what the Clippers are doing. Rather than trying to stink, they’re trying to be good.“When I see the Clippers,” he added, “I see a team building a foundation, something substantial, something real.”Patrick Beverley’s realness became increasingly appreciated around the league this season. The 30-year-old guard’s competitive spirit helped keep the Clippers fighting all season, whether trailing by 28 points with a vastly new lineup in Boston immediately after the trade deadline or by 31 points in Oakland during Game 2 of their first-round series against the Warriors.Beverley, among with Wilson Chandler (4.3 points and 3.1 rebounds), JaMychal Green (8.7 points and 6.5 rebounds) and Garrett Temple (4.7 points and 1.7 assists), all are unrestricted free agents this offseason. Ivica Zubac and Rodney McGruder will be restricted free agents.“I’m not going to get into all that,” Rivers said. “But I think (Beverley is a) very important part to our chemistry on our team.”Offered Beverley, who shot better than 43% from 3-point in games in 2019 and averaged eight rebounds per game in the postseason: “At the end of the day those are good decisions, (it’s) not like those are bad decisions you have to make. But, yeah, my heart is definitely with my teammates, for sure.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
