Gabby Cooper experiences struggles of Syracuse’s 3-point heavy offense

first_img Published on November 29, 2016 at 10:24 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ In Syracuse’s home-opener against Rhode Island on Nov. 11, freshman Gabby Cooper threw up 18 3-pointers.She made just four.In the Orange’s next game, Nov. 14 in the Carrier Dome against Siena, Cooper again relentlessly heaved shots from beyond the arc, this time attempting 14 3-pointers.She made three.After the Rhode Island game, SU head coach Quentin Hillsman was asked whether Cooper needed to relax with the 3-pointers. He said he almost took her out a few times for not shooting enough. In his offense, Hillsman said, open shots need to be taken.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“That was one of the more difficult things to adjust to,” Cooper said. “Sometimes you don’t feel ready to shoot.”Shooting just 23.6 percent from the 3-point line in the first seven games of her freshman campaign, Cooper has experienced the tough love that comes with running as a guard in Hillsman’s deep-ball offense. She’s shot at least 10 3-pointers in four of SU’s (4-3) games this season but has made only 17 of her 72 attempts.When Syracuse recruited Cooper, she said she expected to receive significant minutes on the court. But after playing 194 minutes already this season, the third highest total on the team, even Cooper admits that she didn’t expect to be playing this much, and she didn’t expect to be shooting nearly as many 3s.Hillsman said at the beginning of the season that the Orange would have to rely on 3-pointers to survive this season. After the team’s national championship appearance last year — a by-product of its heavy reliance and success with 3-pointers — Hillsman said the team “has no other choice” than to live or die from 3-point range.But after losing guard Brianna Butler following last season, the SU staff knew it needed a third guard to complement Alexis Peterson and Brittney Sykes. That’s where Cooper came in.“(Cooper) can make shots, she’s athletic enough and she’s smart enough,” assistant coach Tammi Reiss said. “The biggest thing was, could she pick the schemes up quick enough to learn everything to play? Gabby’s a very smart player. “With Cooper tasked to replace Butler’s stellar numbers from the 3-point line, this reliance on 3s has been rough for SU in the early part of the year. Syracuse has lost three of its last four games and dropped nine spots to No. 20 from No. 11 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll.In SU’s 62-61 loss at Drexel last Monday, the Orange shot just 28 percent from 3-point range, and it hasn’t shot above 34 percent since Nov. 11.Still, Hillsman said, when players such as Cooper are on the court shooting 3-pointers, even if the shooters don’t make every shot, it spreads out the floor and opens up the middle for inside players like center Briana Day.“Either they come and guard me and give the lane to (Peterson) and (Sykes), or they don’t guard me and I pull up and shoot it,” Cooper said.The 5-foot-10 Cooper said playing in Hillsman’s offense has taught her that if she isn’t ready to shoot, it’s her fault that she’s missing open looks on the basket. She said she has to get ready to shoot all of the time if she wants the number of looks from beyond the arc that Hillsman asks for.And even though Cooper’s numbers aren’t where she would like them to be right now, she’s learning that the more open looks, the better. The makes could come as the season goes on.“She’s doing well, she’s taking her shots when she has them and being aggressive for us,” Hillsman said. “We have to give her a lot of credit, she’s a freshman, she’s a baby playing in a huge environment.” Commentslast_img read more


Revived with Marlins, former Dodger Miguel Rojas is the latest cautionary tale in judging trades too soon

first_imgDee Gordon was a popular player in Los Angeles who never quite fulfilled his potential. He batted .289 in his final season as a Dodger. His first year as a Marlin, 2015, Gordon led the NL in batting average (.333), cut down on his strikeouts, and hit a couple more homers. He also won a Gold Glove at second base – a position he was never afforded the mentorship to master as a Dodger.Less than 12 months after the trade, some folks decided they had all the evidence they needed: Miami won the trade.The Marlins were on their way to collect their trophy when some funny things happened. Gordon was hit with a PED suspension in 2016, then later purged in a fire sale along with the Marlins’ other stars. Pitcher Dan Haren was traded to the Chicago Cubs in July 2015 and retired after the season. Before long, only Rojas remained in Miami.The Dodgers received four players in the trade. One, pitcher Andrew Heaney, was immediately flipped to the Angels for Howie Kendrick, who replaced Gordon at second base.Chris Hatcher was a catcher-turned-reliever who some in the Dodgers’ front office saw as a potential future closer. If you joined the-Marlins-won-the-trade bandwagon early, Hatcher was probably the reason. He posted a 4.64 earned-run average in two-plus seasons and blew as many saves as he converted (four). The Dodgers flipped him to Oakland for international slot money last summer.The other players the Dodgers received in the trade, Kiké Hernandez and Austin Barnes, hadn’t established themselves in the majors by December 2014. Yet by Game 7 of last year’s World Series, they were indispensable. In a couple short years, the pro-Marlins trade verdict seemed horribly premature.Hot takes have their place. But in a social media culture that shares “lost the trade” memes like cheap currency, we really don’t like our verdicts so nuanced.The Dodgers’ trade with the Seattle Mariners for Taylor cost them precisely one player: former first-round draft pick Zach Lee. This is the kind of trade fans can get behind.Lee, 26, is pitching for the Tampa Bay Rays’ Double-A affiliate. His name is about as popular in Seattle as Hatcher’s is in Los Angeles.Meanwhile, Taylor learned to play center field and hasn’t ceded the position since. He is still the Dodgers’ leadoff hitter and one of two reigning NL Championship Series MVPs. He also offers a cautionary lesson about the rush to judgment.Rojas, who started twice at shortstop and once at first base against the Dodgers this week, hopes the same lesson applies to him.“If you can’t prove that you can help offensively you can’t be an everyday player,” he said. “Every year I’ve been getting more at-bats and more opportunities to play. Having the opportunity this year to be an everyday shortstop and starting the year playing every day gave me a lot of confidence.”His hitting guru is Ricardo Sosa, based in Rojas’ adopted hometown of Miami. Unlike Taylor, Rojas hasn’t become a power hitter. He isn’t trying to.“I don’t have the kind of power to create an angle – say, a 32-degree angle, I’m not going to hit that ball out,” Rojas said. “I don’t have that kind of power. The kind of hitter I am, I have to hit line drives, try to hit doubles in the gap.”Related Articles Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ In the series finale Wednesday, Rojas hit a three-run home run against Clayton Kershaw to snap a scoreless tie. It was his third home run of the season, already a career high.If nothing else, Rojas will have a job by virtue of his versatility in the field. He was always a slick-fielding middle infielder. As a 25-year-old rookie with the Dodgers, he was a frequent late-game replacement at shortstop for Hanley Ramirez.Now 29, Rojas has learned third base and first base as well. Perry Hill, the Marlins’ veteran infield coach, said Rojas is “outstanding at all four” infield positions. He is too old to be considered a prospect but still young enough to think his best years might lie ahead.Maybe the biggest winner of the Miguel Rojas trade was Rojas himself. If this narrative rings familiar, it’s because Rojas’ story parallels that of Dodgers utilityman Chris Taylor to the last detail. Well, almost – Taylor was 26 when Dave Roberts installed him as the team’s leadoff hitter last summer.Considering all the parallels, it’s surprising how little attention Rojas has gotten since December 2014, when he was the seventh player in a seven-player trade between the Dodgers and Marlins. Rojas was so disconnected from the front lines of that deal, he said he learned he was traded on Twitter.The reason Rojas remains relatively anonymous says something about his team, to be sure. The salary-shedding Marlins entered Wednesday’s game against the Dodgers on pace for 120 losses, which would tie an all-time record. Rojas has batted first or second in the majority of his starts, and few teams would afford that privilege to a player with a .295 OBP and .341 slugging percentage (through Tuesday).It also says something about how trades are perceived, how that perception evolves (or doesn’t evolve), and how players whose strength rests in their versatility are valued.With the Marlins in town for a three-game series, it’s a good time to revisit that seven-player swap. Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense center_img LOS ANGELES — He rolled into town this week a new player with a new swing. His role as an everyday, top-of-the-lineup hitter was one the man who traded him four years ago didn’t see in his immediate future.Ask him for the secret to his success, and he will describe the long hours working with a private hitting instructor the last two offseasons. He’ll describe his new swing path, his conversion to the religion of hitting line drives, and the early baseball years he wasted pleasing the coaches who wanted him to hit the ball on the ground.Talk to his current coaches, and they describe a player who quickly learned a new defensive position with ease. They depict his success as a marriage of hard work with a new opportunity in a new environment. The fact that he became a major league regular at the relatively late age of 27 only makes the story that much more special.Yes, Miguel Rojas has turned himself into quite a ballplayer.

Victory moves Groves closer to title shot

first_imgGeorge Groves remained on course for a world title shot by stopping Noe Gonzalez in the fifth round at the O2 Arena.Hammersmith’s unbeaten super-middleweight, 25, showed his promise with a slick performance, landing effectively with his left jab and several stiff rights before ending the contest in brutal fashion.Groves, the Commonwealth champion, floored Gonzalez with a crunching right to the chin and although the Uruguayan got to his feet, he looked groggy and referee Terry O’Connor opted not to let the fight continue.Gonzalez, 34, came to the ring having lost only twice – against former world champions Felix Sturm and Adonis Stevenson – and had won both his previous bouts in the first round.But Groves, whose leaky defence has previously caused some concern, held a tight guard when necessary and deceived his opponent with clever movement before delivering the decisive blow.The victory took his record to 19-0 and he is expected to fight again in September ahead of a possible world title challenge later in the year.See also:Booth rules out Groves-Magee encounterFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
