ools with not one, but two players taken in the first round of the NBA draft. Guard Wade Baldwin IV, a starter for both of his s Antworten

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Vanderbilt Commodores have their first new coach since the turn of this century, and Bryce Drew already is making quite an impression.He was hired away from his alma mater Valparaiso in April to replace Kevin Stallings, who left for Pittsburgh despite being the winningest coach in Vanderbilt history over his 17 seasons. The Commodores have been adjusting to the change since summer workouts.Pretty much night and day from how Stallings was, junior guard Matthew Fisher-Davis said. I think itll be good for us. Everybodys working hard, and itll be a good season.The Commodores disappointed last season going 19-14 after some very high expectations with a roster that had two players taken in the first round of the NBA draft in June. They also lost to Wichita State in Dayton to open the NCAA Tournament, and Stallings bolted shortly after despite going 332-220 at Vanderbilt since 1999-00.Fisher-Davis said the attitude all starts with Drew with he and his assistants bringing positive energy every day.Drew knows he takes over a bit of a challenge. The Commodores have been picked to finish sixth in the Southeastern Conference, but he not only has to win games but lure fans back to Memorial Gym after attendance has dropped in recent seasons.We want to work extremely hard, Drew said. We want to play a style of basketball thats exciting for the fans, the passion that we put out and the work that we put out. We might not be the tallest team or we might not be the most athletic team, but hopefully when we leave, our fans hearts will be captured by how hard were playing.---Here are some other things to know about Vanderbilt this season:NBA DRAFT PICKS: The Commodores were one of only three schools with not one, but two players taken in the first round of the NBA draft. Guard Wade Baldwin IV, a starter for both of his seasons, was the 17th pick overall by Memphis, while center Damian Jones was the 30th pick by Golden State. Vanderbilt also lost its top two scorers with Baldwin leading the team scoring 14.1 points per game and Jones adding 13.9.RETURNING STARTERS: Vanderbilt still has some size in 7-foot-1 senior Luke Kornet, who ranked fourth nationally in blocked shots. Drew has plenty of experience too in junior Matthew Fisher-Davis, who led the SEC shooting 44.6 percent from 3-point range, in averaging 9.7 points per game. Junior Riley LaChance added 6.9 points. Redshirt senior guard Nolan Cressler played in 30 games last season after sitting out a transfer year from Cornell.NEWCOMERS: Drew will have only 10 scholarship players available, which luckily includes redshirt freshman Djery Baptiste, a 6-10, 240-pound center who picked Vanderbilt over Connecticut, SMU, Oregon and Southern California. Drew also has a pair of freshmen in forward Clevon Brown and guard Payton Willis. Larry Austin Jr. is sitting out this season after transferring from Xavier.SCHEDULE: The Commodores open the season Nov. 11 playing Marquette in Annapolis, Maryland, and it doesnt get any easier. Vanderbilt also plays Belmont on Nov. 15 and Chattanooga on Dec. 17 while visiting Middle Tennessee, the team that upset No. 2 seed Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament, on Dec. 8. The Commodores also play Butler in the Las Vegas Invitational with a possible game against Arizona State, and a neutral site game with Minnesota in North Dakota. Vanderbilt also has its usual home-and-home with Kentucky starting with the Wildcats visiting Memorial Gym on Jan. 10 with in-state rival Tennessee in Nashville on Jan. 14.SEC TOURNAMENT: Once again, the Commodores will have to travel only a couple miles for the league tournament being held once again at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.---Online:More AP College Basketball: and AP-Top 25 Twitter feed: Teresa M.

A statement from the worlds top-ranked player says all checks "were satisfactory and showed positive evolution" regarding the injury, which contributed to his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka in the final in Melbourne. Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko believes Max Verstappen has become Formula Ones most popular driver worldwide.Verstappens popularity was clear to see at the Belgian Grand Prix, with swathes of Dutch fans making the trip across the border to see him race. The Dutchman has courted controversy since that race, getting into a spat with Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen over his driving at Spa and his subsequent refusal to accept blame.Marko thinks the fans like the traits Verstappen has demonstrated in his short career so far.Probably we are lacking strong personalities lately, Marko told On top, there are drivers doing their last season, so they are complaining about Max, about safety, about anything.With Max, here is someone who is really young with a strong idea of what he wants - and he is not shy of trying to get it, of trying to be successful. And the reaction of the fans plays to his advanntage.dddddddddddd I would say he is probably now the most popular driver on the grid - worldwide.The negative comments about Verstappen come in a season which has already seen Verstappen become F1s youngest race winner in Spain. He has also turned in memorable drives in Canada and Great Britain, where he pulled off an early candidate for overtake of the season on Nico Rosberg.?Marko thinks the recent criticism levelled at the driver he once compared to Ayrton Senna has been unjustified.Nothing is justified. Max is a different calibre. He has the traits of a future world champion and he is just doing what is necessary to get there.It obviously surprises some that this also involves overtaking and defending. If there had been something gravely wrong, the stewards would have penalised him.
