17 commits prior to the early signing period, but f Antworten

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The future is now for the U.S. mens water polo team. Thats about all the Americans can do with whats left of their time at the Olympics.The United States won silver in Beijing but slipped to eighth in London and will fare even worse in Rio after losing 8-5 to Montenegro on Friday, eliminating any chance of making the quarterfinals. Every time the U.S. pushed for the advantage, Montenegro answered, and an unusual brutality call on?Alex Roelse?made life even more difficult for the Americans.Hungary, Greece, Spain and defending champion Croatia also won on the fourth day of the competition, sharpening the picture for the next round. Greece handed Brazil its first loss with a 9-4 victory and moved into a tie with the host country for the Group A lead.All thats left for the U.S. is one more preliminary game on Sunday against Italy, which lost 10-7 to defending champion Croatia on the fourth day of the competition and is tied with the London gold medalists for the Group B lead with six points.U.S. coach Dejan Udovicic, who took over the program in May 2013, provided no indication that he would treat the finale any differently, but he could give more time to Thomas Dunstan and Ben Hallock to help with the growth process for the teenagers.We knew that every game would be tough for us before we come here, Udovicic said. We are the youngest in here. We are fighting like lions here, you know, and we will do the same last game.Hallock, a 6-foot-6 center, and Dunstan, a 6-4 attacker, just faced off in Californias top high school division in November, with Dunstan helping Mater Dei High School beat Hallock and Harvard-Westlake 9-8 for the state championship. Hallock got a good look in the second period against Montenegro but was unable to convert a backhand try.Next up for Hallock is Stanford in the fall, and Dunstan is committed to Southern California.I think its pretty impressive to have two athletes who can compete at this level at the age of 18, said Harvard-Westlake coach Brian Flacks, who traveled to Rio to watch Hallock play. Hopefully in 2020 in Japan it leads to a medal.While Hallock and Dunstan look like the future of U.S. water polo, it looks as if captain Tony Azevedo, goaltender Merrill Moses and defender Jesse Smith are on their way out. The 34-year-old Azevedo is playing in his fifth Olympics, a record for USA Water Polo, and its the fourth Games for Smith, 33. Moses turns 39 on Saturday.Azevedo failed to score against Montenegro, and Moses allowed a goal in the second on a shot he probably should have stopped.Today, the ball didnt go in for me, Azevedo said.Montenegro rebounded from a 6-5 loss to Italy on Wednesday, clinching a spot in the next round. It can improve its positioning for the quarterfinals with a victory over Spain in their Group B finale.Darko Brguljan scored two goals and Milos Scepanovic made 13 saves. Uros Cuckovic put the U.S. away with a man-up goal with 10 seconds remaining.Scepanovic was fantastic today, Montenegro coach Vladimir Gojkovic said. I hope so stay until the end of the championship.Montenegro had a 4-3 lead when Roelse received a brutality penalty early in the fourth, resulting in a four-minute exclusion and also shelving the defender for the matchup with Italy. U.S. assistant Jack Kocur also was thrown out and will not be able to coach in the finale.Mladan Janovic then scored with the man advantage, giving Montenegro a 5-3 lead with 7:18 remaining. The Americans twice pulled within one goal down the stretch but were never able to make up the difference.Nothing, not one thing, went on out of the water. They called a brutality. Its really amazing to me, Azevedo said.Also Friday, Gabor Kis scored five times to lead Hungary to a runaway 17-7 victory over winless Japan.?Gonzalo Echenique Saglietti had three goals as Spain cruised to a 10-4 win against France. . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. .2 billion agreement with Rogers Communications for the leagues broadcast and multimedia rights. .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at Boston Strong - a citys recovery from tragedy. . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. . -- The proud fathers huddled near the Dallas Stars dressing room, smiling, laughing and telling stories while wearing replica green sweaters of their sons team. Five-star point guard?Quade Green?has committed to Kentucky.Green chose the Wildcats over Syracuse, although Villanova, Temple and Duke were also on his final list of five schools.Syracuse appeared to be the prohibitive favorite for Green for most of the fall, taking the lead from Duke in late August. The Orange hosted Green on at least four visits since the summer, but Green was impressed with Kentucky when he visited Lexington for Big Blue Madness. The Wildcats offered Green in June and remained heavily involved in his recruitment.Green, a Neumann-Goretti High School (Pennsylvania) product, is ranked No. 22 in the ESPN 100 for 2017. The No. 3 point guard in the class, Green pushed into five-star status after an impressive spring and summer with the PSA Cardinals on the Nike EYBL circuit. He averaged 14.9 points, 9.8 assists and 3.2 steals, leading the competition in the latter two categories. At 6-foot-1, Green is at his best when attacking the basket, utilizing change of speed and crafty dribbling ability to beat his man and get into the lane. He has excellent passing vision and has improved his offensive arsenal, including his 3-point shoooting, floater and midrange game.ddddddddddddKentucky badly needed guards in the 2017 class, with freshmen DeAaron Fox and Malik Monk and sophomore Isaiah Briscoe all potentially leaving for the NBA draft next spring. There are zero scholarship guards on the roster expected to return to Lexington next season. The Wildcats landed four-star point guard?Shai Gilgeous-Alexander?(No. 44) in the middle of the early signing period, but the two incoming point guards are capable of playing together.Green and Gilgeous-Alexander join a recruiting class that was ranked in the top five entering the week. John Calipari and Kentucky had zero 2017 commits prior to the early signing period, but five-star frontcourt prospects?Nick Richards?(No. 12) and?P.J. Washington?(No. 16) committed on the same day in mid-November.Calipari remains involved with five-star forwards Kevin Knox (No. 7), Mohamed Bamba (No. 4) and Jarred Vanderbilt (No. 23), and he could also look at wing prospects moving forward, primarily Hamidou Diallo (No. 13).
