Wisconsin looks to ride hot shooting in border battle

first_imgAnya Covington (40) burned Northwestern’s defense on Jan. 22, hitting 9 of 17 shots and 5 of 8 free throws for 23 points. Minnesota gives up the fourth-highest shooting percentage in the Big Ten.[/media-credit]When a struggling team needs a quick boost of confidence, there’s nothing that helps more than a victory. Laying down an old-fashioned beat-down, however, is something else entirely.Fresh off the heels of routing Northwestern 75-55, Wisconsin (6-13, 2-5) looks to continue its solid play Thursday when it travels to Minnesota (11-10, 3-4) for a border battle with the Golden Gophers.Wisconsin will face one of the better one-two guard punches in the conference when it plays in Williams Arena, as Minnesota’s backcourt duo of freshman sensation Rachel Banham and tested senior Kiara Buford lead the Gophers’ offensive attack that averages 65.7 points per game.Banham, Minnesota’s Miss Basketball just a year ago, has already impressed in her first season as a Gopher. Against the No. 1 Baylor Bears earlier this season, the freshman posted a career high 19 points to go along with five rebounds and two assists. Banham leads Minnesota with 15.4 points per contest and is also a tremendous threat from deep. Besides being in the top ten in the conference in points per game, Banham currently boasts the second-best shooting percentage in the Big Ten from beyond the arc, averaging an amazing .444 percent.Complementing the young Banham is Buford, a senior and consistent scorer from anywhere on the court. There is little if no drop off between the two, as Buford averages 13.5 points per game, 15th-best in the conference. Besides owning a streak of 14 consecutive games of double-digit points at one point this season, Buford is also a three-point threat, as the senior shoots .372 percent from downtown.Wisconsin head coach Bobbie Kelsey knows if the Badgers hope to win Thursday night, they must contain the Gophers’ scoring pair.“Well they are obviously a big key to what Minnesota is trying to do,” Kelsey said. “Banham, being a freshman, is really getting it done for them. We’re going to have to try to get the ball out of her hands.”“Same thing with Buford she’s a really nice shooter for them, and she takes what the defense gives her. She’s got a nice pull up, and we have to make sure we don’t let her get going either and everybody else for that matter. You take two away and sometimes the other players go off, so we’ll need a total team effort. We have a little plan, so we’ll see how it works.”Although Kelsey wasn’t revealing anything about the plan before the game, there are a few areas that the Badgers can look to exploit in their matchup with the Gophers. The first is three-point shooting. While the Badgers shoot the third-highest percentage in the conference from three at .337 percent, the Gophers give up the fourth highest percentage from beyond the arc at .316 percent.Minnesota is also catching Wisconsin at a bad time, as the Badgers are coming off one of their best shooting games of the season. Against Northwestern this past Sunday, the Badgers shot over .400 percent from three, including a stretch where sophomore guard Morgan Paige hit four in a row.“Hopefully, the shots we do take go down because in the past we’ve taken a lot of three point shots and they haven’t gone in,” Kelsey said. “People on our team seem to be a little hot, and I’m not sure what [Minnesota] is going to do to stop us, like keep Morgan from hitting four in a row. I don’t anticipate Morgan being open, but again, more people scoring means they have to key in on somebody, and if they do that on Morgan we can throw it inside and go to work on the block.”If Wisconsin hopes to receive truly consistent scoring against Minnesota, it will need its frontcourt to have a strong showing. While Wisconsin senior Anya Covington will most likely battle down low with Minnesota’s Katie Loberg, the Gophers lack height across the boards to challenge the likes of Covington and fellow Badger post sophomore Cassie Rochel. With only one Gopher player in the immediate rotation taller than 6-foot-3, the Badgers will look to lean on their own bigs.“I think we’re just going to try to play our game,” Paige said. “Anya’s been having some great matchups inside, so I feel like the more touches we get to her it’s going to be a positive result. I wouldn’t say that’s our game plan, but she’s just one of our top options right now.”last_img read more

Obama Highlights Recovery in State of the Union

first_imgObama Highlights Recovery in State of the Union Share in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News During his State of the Union address Tuesday evening, President Barack Obama did not make any substantial announcements regarding the housing market, government mortgage-backed securities, or the GSEs. However, “lower mortgage premiums” were mentioned, alongside “child care and sick leave and equal pay” as “ideas [that] will make a meaningful difference in the lives of millions of families.”Obama said his budget proposal is aimed at “middle-class economics,” with goals of “helping folks afford childcare, college, health care, a home, retirement.”However, in addition to mentioning the need for lower mortgage premiums, Obama also spoke of one American family who spends more on childcare than on their mortgage, prompting Jed Kolko, chief economist and VP of analytics at Trulia, to tweet in response, “Not a hard sell for lower FHA premiums.”Wall Street Journal journalist Joe Light tweeted during the speech, “Not much on housing in #SOTU but not much there could be. Housing needs stuff like wage growth to get going rather than legislation.”Obama did mention wage growth as he spoke of the overall progress of the national economy. “Today, thanks to a growing economy, the recovery is touching more and more lives,” Obama said. “Wages are finally starting to rise again.””The shadow of crisis has passed, and the state of the union is strong,” the president said early in his speech.The nation has experienced “the fastest economic growth in over a decade, our deficits cut by two-thirds, a stock market that has doubled, and health care inflation at its lowest rate in fifty years,” Obama said.Obama touted the past year as “a breakthrough year for America” as job growth outpaced any year since 1999 and unemployment fell below pre-crisis levels.However, not all agree with this rosy portrayal. “If only we could get more people to leave the labor force, the unemployment rate could fall some more,” tweeted Mark Calabria, director of financial regulation studies at the Cato Institute, a public policy research group.center_img Barack Obama Politics 2015-01-20 Krista Franks Brock January 20, 2015 538 Views last_img read more
