Freshman guard Brycen Goodine enters transfer portal

first_img Published on March 13, 2020 at 8:06 pm Contact Michael: | @MikeJMcCleary Goodine’s game-winning putback layup against Wake Forest was one of Syracuse’s highlights of the season, which ended abruptly. Individually, Goodine was trending upward as the season progressed because of strong on-ball defense, Goodine’s road to minutes next year looked similarly bleak. With Goodine, the Orange would’ve had six guards under scholarship next season.Kadary Richmond, a four-star recruit, further adds to the logjam at point guard which includes the injured Jalen Carey, Howard Washington and current starter Joseph Girard III. Comments Syracuse freshman guard Brycen Goodine has entered the transfer portal, according to Verbal Commits. Goodine played just 8.7 minutes per game and scored 1.9 points per outing in his first season with the Orange.“It is time for me to seek out a new beginning,” Goodine wrote in a Twitter post.Goodine started the season a game-to-game contributor. He played in SU’s first nine contests of the year, but due to ball security issues, inefficient scoring and an inability to hit any of his 10 attempts from beyond the arc, he fell out of the rotation. He appeared in just three of Syracuse’s next 10 games, playing just 10 minutes total over that stretch.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury: SN staff predictions

first_imgMORE: Join DAZN and watch Canelo plus more than 80 fight nights a yearAndreas HaleDeontay Wilder def. Tyson Fury via eighth-round (T)KOMy primary issue with this fight is that Fury has returned from a 30-month hiatus against subpar competition. Had Fury faced a fighter in the realm of Joseph Parker, Dereck Chisora or even Carlos Takam, I would have felt more comfortable selecting the unbeaten “Gypsy King”; however, neither Francisco Pianeta nor Sefer Seferi was the opponent that would put Fury’s skills to the test. It’s like a pitcher returning from Tommy John surgery and pitching nine strong innings against a Single-A club and immediately taking the mound for a playoff game against the Red Sox. Fury has the boxing IQ but the conditioning will be a huge question mark against an opponent who hits like a diesel truck traveling downhill when the brakes go out. Wilder’s technique has always left something to be desired but I just don’t believe this version of Fury is the right one to take advantage of those flaws. If he had had a few more fights, I’d like Fury a lot, but this may be a case of too much, too soon.  At some point, Wilder should catch Fury, but “The Gypsy King” isn’t going to make it easy. The end will be part conditioning and part Wilder finding Fury’s chin.Mark LelinwallaDeontay Wilder def. Tyson Fury via seventh-round (T)KO)It’s going to take “The Bronze Bomber” a while to figure out Fury’s unorthodox style — and swinging for the fences is going to leave him vulnerable early — but when he does, it’s going to be “Timberrrr!” Fury’s 6-9 frame is going to get dropped courtesy of Wilder’s right hand — a punch Fury will never see coming.Steven MuehlhausenTyson Fury def. Deontay Wilder via unanimous decisionWhen you really sit down and look at it, this should be a walk in the park for Wilder. He’s facing Fury, who has only fought two times since November 2015 because of a litany of personal issues. The bouts he has taken haven’t been against world beaters and were more about getting his feet wet. Instead of continuing to work his way into the deep end, the former unified heavyweight champion decided to plunge right in with the hardest-hitting heavyweight since Mike Tyson. Beyond his most recent fight against Luis Ortiz, which was one of the best fights of 2018, Wilder hasn’t faced a lineup that would get fans too excited. Wilder showed he was more than vulnerable. He got outboxed until the fifth round when he dropped Ortiz with a blistering right hand. Wilder also showed he could be hurt when Ortiz nearly finished him on the feet in the seventh round. The “Bronze Bomber” survived and finished Ortiz in the 10th round. Fury isn’t Ortiz and won’t get himself into a firefight, which proved to be the downfall of Ortiz. Wilder is going to have to show the world he has more than just a right hand. As with Tyson, once someone walks through your best shot, what is your Plan B? Fury will do to Wilder what he did to Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015. He will use his unorthodox style and continuous lateral movement and throw the jab ad nauseam to frustrate the WBC titleholder and cruise to victory.Bradley CullenTyson Fury def. Deontay Wilder via unanimous decisionIf you have any thoughts of this being a battle for the ages or having an amazing knockout finish, throw those thoughts out the window; this won’t be a fight to remember. Wilder is wild and isn’t blessed with any technical ability. He may have the big knockout capabilities, but for this fight, he needs his opponent to stand in front of him.”The Gypsy King” is the best technical fighter in the division and is far too clever to go toe to toe in a slugfest. Fury will be constantly moving around the ring landing his jab, and when Wilder looks to try to throw his hands, Fury will move his head or flick his shoulder, forcing Wilder onto the back foot expecting a punch to come. These are the very tactics that Fury used to confuse and frustrate a much superior fighter than Wilder in Wladimir Klitschko.Wilder may catch Fury every now and then, but Fury has the chin and defense to take it. “The Bronze Bomber” will get frustrated as the fight enters the final rounds and will lash out wildly, but Fury will just catch him with a hook and then move out of range. I expect boos to ring out when the scorecards are read, and Fury’s arm will be the one that is raised holding the prestigious green-and-gold WBC belt.Chris WalkerDeontay Wilder def. Tyson Fury via sixth-round (T)KO If someone could guarantee me that Fury was at 100 percent, then this would be one of the easiest picks to make. He’s better than Wilder in every area apart from power when at his best, but his absence from the top level of this sport combined with his poor living will surely catch up with him here. Wilder has proved beyond doubt that he’s dangerous at any stage in a fight, and when he takes that threat into a contest against a man who’s lacking recent experience, that’s a good position to be in. Wilder will be behind on the cards and will likely have lost every round, but he will find the target at some point, and when he does, it’ll be over shortly after.Kenneth BouhairieDeontay Wilder def. Tyson Fury via eighth-round (T)KOMy pick changes every day. Today, it’s Wilder. I see more paths to victory for Fury, who I believe can outbox and/or stop Deontay, but “The Bronze Bomber” keeps surprising me. His technique is all over the place but his ring IQ is underrated. If the moment doesn’t overtake him, I expect him to be at his absolute best and close the show in scintillating fashion.Mark OrtegaDeontay Wilder def. Tyson Fury via unanimous decisionI think I’m probably in the minority picking Wilder by decision. I think Fury probably gets dropped along the way in this one and Wilder wins a close but clear decision. I think Fury will aggravate him with his movement early on, but I expect Wilder to figure things out and his right hands will stand out more than Fury’s low-output effectiveness in the judges’ minds.Franklin McNeilDeontay Wilder def. Tyson Fury via 10th-round (T)KO Wilder’s superior athleticism will prove to be the biggest difference in this bout. His jab, hand speed, defensive movement and power gives him more ways to win. He will begin taking charge of this fight in the later rounds.* * * By a count of 6-2, Deontay Wilder is favored to defeat Tyson Fury. Of those six, only one person sees Wilder winning by decision with the other five picking a stoppage. The two staffers who selected Fury only see this fight going his way if it heads to the judges’ scorecards. Do you agree? It has been well over a decade since the last time an American was involved in a meaningful heavyweight title fight, but that time is now as Deontay Wilder will look to prove that heavyweight boxing is alive and well in the States when he faces lineal champion Tyson Fury in arguably the biggest showdown the division has had on American soil in many years. It will be Wilder’s bombastic power vs. Fury’s incredible ring savvy when the two clash at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Dec. 1.The Sporting News staff has made its final predictions for the clash of the titans:last_img read more

It’s also responsible for starting thousands of dangerous wildfires every year. Researchers have long known that lightning strikes are correlated with higher temperatures—hotter summers often mean more wildfires. Now, new research published online today in Science suggests that with climate change, the United States could see many more lightning strikes each year: about a 12% increase, or 300,000 more strikes, with every 1°C rise in temperature. By the end of the 21st century, the rate of lightning strikes per year could increase by as much as 50%.In order to make this calculation, researchers relied on counts of cloud-to-ground lightning strikes within the contiguous United States.
