Syracuse offense shines in 1st open practice of spring

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 8, 2014 at 9:29 pm Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass Terrel Hunt saw a wide-open Jarrod West jetting toward the end zone. Hunt darted to the right and lofted up a pass that West corralled for a 32-yard score.“He just made a great play,” West said. “He extended the play and scrambled out of the pocket, and we just stayed alive for him and he hit me on a nice ball.”That was one of Syracuse’s five touchdowns on the day in the team’s first open spring practice Tuesday. The Orange offense showed off its new fast-paced look in the Carrier Dome, consistently torching a banged-up defense.Four of SU’s touchdowns came in the air and one was on the ground. Hunt and Co. got off plays efficiently and flaunted the big-play ability George McDonald wants to see regularly.SU head coach Scott Shafer said the scrimmage started off with the defense dominating, recording a string of tackles for loss, but that quickly changed.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I was like ‘Holy mackerel, we may not gain a yard,’ and then all of a sudden, ‘Bam,” Shafer said, clapping his hands for emphasis. “It took off.”The Hunt-to-West connection was the first massive gain of the day. Then George Morris II burst through the middle for a 35-yard touchdown run, getting mobbed by his teammates once he crossed the plane.On the very next play, Hunt found Brisly Estime on a bubble screen on the right side. Estime juked a few defenders and took it to the house, scoring from more than 50 yards out. McDonald said Estime has impressed this spring, and it’s clear he’ll have a more significant role this season after bursting onto the scene toward the end of last year.Then incoming-freshman quarterback AJ Long found rising-sophomore Corey Winfield for a touchdown, and Mitch Kimble connected with Ben Lewis on the outside for a score.“We had players in space make plays out there,” Shafer said. “I’d say today, especially the second part of the scrimmage, the offense made some plays out there.”Adonis Ameen-Moore had a couple nice bounces to the outside for sizable gains. Overall, the offense was fluid and effective.A speedy offense means many players will cycle in and out for the Orange, and West feels speeding things up will help Syracuse immensely.“Going fast is a good thing,” West said. “It tires out the defense.” Commentslast_img read more

Beane’s 31 Points Sinks Men’s Basketball At SIU, 75-60

first_imgStory Links CARBONDALE, Ill. – Anthony Beane, the Missouri Valley Conference’s second leading scorer, scored 31 points to push SIU past the Drake University men’s basketball team, 75-60, Saturday afternoon at SIU Arena.Drake (6-20, 1-13 MVC) was led by junior Kale Abrahamson’s (West Des Moines, Iowa) 15 points, his most in MVC play on 5-of-10 shooting. Ore Arogundade (Chicago, Ill.) continued his strong play with 11 points and a team-high nine rebounds to match a career high. Dominik Olejniczak (Torun, Poland) added 10 points on 5-of-5 shooting.Beane’s 31 points for SIU (20-7, 9-5 MVC) came on 12-of-20 shooting along with six rebounds. Bola Olaniyan added a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double in the win. The Salukis converted on 50.9 percent of their shots in the game and pulled away by converting at 55.6 percent clip in the second half.”Anthony Beane is really good, he makes hard shots and one guy can’t try to guard him,” said Drake head coach Ray Giacoletti. “His athleticism hurt us tonight, but our guys fought.”Olejniczak scored eight of his points in the first half as he was 4-of-4 from the field. The Bulldogs took a 12-10 lead eight minutes into the period of a Nick McGlynn (Stoughton, Wis.) putback that capped a 9-0 run for the Bulldogs. But, SIU fired back with a 17-2 spurt that saw six different Salukis score to give SIU a 27-14 lead with 5:29 left in the period. “The first half we were a mess offensively,” Giacoletti said. “We couldn’t get into anything and couldn’t get an entry. They took it away and you have to play through that. We didn’t do a good job of that and took bad shots.”Three points from Casey Schlatter (Iowa Falls, Iowa) in the final 90 seconds of the period pulled the Bulldogs within seven points but a three-point play from Mike Rodriquez gave SIU at 10-point, 37-27, lead at halftime.Schlatter, making his second career start, finished the game with seven points, five rebounds and two assists.Drake opened up the second half by shooting 54 percent from the field in the first eight minutes and got as close as six points, but Beane scored nine points during that span to keep SIU’s lead in double-digits for the majority of the time. With less than 10 minutes left in the contest, a Beane three-pointer started an 11-3 run the built up a 16-point, 64-48, lead with 6:36 left.A pair of baskets from Abrahamson with less than three minutes left twice got the Bulldogs within 11 points, but the Salukis, and especially Beane, continued to make shots to earn their 20th win of the season.Drake returns home for its next contest on Wednesday, Feb. 17, against Evansville.
