Syracuse falls 74-72 to Duke at Cameron Indoor despite Butler’s 7 3s

first_img Published on January 8, 2015 at 11:08 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Brianna Butler finally proved Thursday night why she was once given the green light to shoot whenever she wants. With SU down six points and 1:50 remaining in regulation against No. 13 Duke, she grabbed an offensive rebound, stepped back and drained a 3-pointer. Moments later, with the Orange trailing by three and 52 seconds to go, Butler sank another 3 to tie the game.Despite the heroics, the Blue Devils (11-4, 2-0 Atlantic Coast) responded with two made free throws to take a 74-72 lead with 26 seconds left, and that score would stand as No. 21 Orange (10-5, 0-2) missed two in-close floaters as the final seconds ticked off the clock. “You’ve got to have some fight,” head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “We made some plays to get ourselves back into the ball game.”Butler finished with a season-high 23 points, five rebounds and four steals. Point guard Alexis Peterson added 18 and four steals, and Diamond Henderson finished with 15 points.

She maintained an aggressive attitude on the offensive end.”Syracuse trailed by eight at halftime, but a stellar defensive effort – the Orange forced 15 total turnovers and out-rebounded the Blue Devils 37-35 – kept the Orange within striking distance. The Orange also grabbed a staggering 19 offensive rebounds, more than its 18 on the defensive glass. “We did a good job of getting into our traps and getting into the passing lanes,” Hillsman said. “ … Overall, we got stops and forced shots at the end of the shot clock. We got some steals, got down the court, and that was the key for us getting back into the basketball game.” Peterson connected on a layup with 7:06 left in regulation to bring the Orange to within 10 at 65-55. Two minutes later, the guard hit a 3 to cut Duke’s lead to 65-59.

Cornelia Fondren grabbed the rebound, but missed a layup from the right side as time expired.With the loss, the Orange once again fell to a top-25 opponent, bringing its season record to 0-5 record against such opponents. Said Hillsman: “I thought we did a good job of putting some fight into our game, and that’s what you’ve got to have.” Commentslast_img read more

‘THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WITH EMPTY CHAIRS AT CHRISTMAS’ TD TELLS PROTEST

first_imgHUNDREDS of people travelled from all over the county today to Buncrana to protest at the ongoing Government austerity programme ahead of this week’s budget and heard a local TD talk of the ’empty chairs’ at Christmas due to mass emigration.Donegal North East Sinn Féin TD, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn said that the large turnout sent “a clear message to the three Government Oireachtas members in Donegal to take to their Fine Gael and Labour colleagues in Government; Inishowen and Donegal says no to further cuts and austerity.”Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “The deep concern in Inishowen and Donegal about further cuts is palpable. Already huge numbers of our workforce are unemployed and thousands of mostly young people have emigrated across the county. “Many chairs will be empty at the dinner tables of Donegal homes this Christmas.“In our fully costed pre budget submission, Sinn Féin have proved that there is a better way. We have to stop strangling our own people at every budget to pay the debts of reckless international gamblers.”He went on: “Here in Inishowen, we now hear talk of garda stations closing in Malin and Culdaff, beds being lost at Buncrana Nursing Unit and Carndonagh Community Hospital, and the vital NowDoc service being downgraded. We also have seen funding removed from our schools, student grants slashed and more education costs pushed onto hard pressed families.“At some stage, this madness has to stop. How much damage will be done to our community, public and physical infrastructure before this Government realise that the well has long since dried up. How much of the life our people will they sqeeze before they stand up against this profound injustice that forces our people to pay for the recklessness and unbridled greed of global capitalism that gambled on private Irish banks like Anglo. All the rules of the game have been torn up. This is sheer madness and not one international economist can understand it. “You can not grow an economy and create jobs and new taxes while imposing crushing cuts and austerity year after year after year. This approach has failed dramatically yet our Government will stand up and tell the troika of the EU/ ECB/ and IMF that it has to stop. In particular, we have to stand up to the ECB.”He added: “Future generations will ask us what we did about it. Today’s protest shows that the people of Inishowen fought back and said no more.”‘THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WITH EMPTY CHAIRS AT CHRISTMAS’ TD TELLS PROTEST was last modified: December 4th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaprotestlast_img read more
