Onuaku expected to play in NCAA Tournament, while Orange await seeding

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 11, 2010 at 12:00 pmcenter_img NEW YORK — Syracuse’s team physician, Irving Raphael, said the X-rays from the injury Arinze Onuaku sustained during the second half of the Orange’s 91-84 loss to Georgetown Thursday came back negative following the game. Raphael does expect Onuaku to play next week in the NCAA Tournament. Raphael said this means there is nothing wrong with Onuaku’s kneecap, knee joint or thigh bone, but cautioned that X-rays do not provide conclusive feedback on muscle or tendon-based injuries or ACL tears. Onuaku will be on crutches and will receive a steady treatment of pain medication and ice, Raphael said. ‘Someone said, ‘Do you expect him to play?’ And I expect him to play unless there’s a surprise,’ Raphael said following Syracuse’s quarterfinal loss. ‘But we’ll get the MRI and we’ll treat what we get.’ Raphael said that by the way Onuaku was describing his pain, it seemed like the same condition he suffered from back in 2006-07 when the center took a redshirt season to rehabilitate his left knee after injuring his quadriceps tendon. Onuaku also had surgery on both of his knees in April 2009 to clear up lingering pain caused by tendonitis. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘I don’t know for sure, but his previous condition was not an ACL, and it’s very likely in the same area as that problem from what he’s telling me,’ Raphael said. ‘But again, we’ll know after the MRI tomorrow.’Still No. 1?Though it’s still to be determined, Syracuse’s hopes for a No. 1 seed in next week’s NCAA Tournament seem to be safe at the moment. Because the Orange is the No. 3 team in the country, it would (theoretically) take two teams to push SU out of one of the spots as a No. 1 seed. The teams directly behind Syracuse, though, haven’t exactly been on a roll.  No. 4 Duke lost to Maryland on March 3 and has five losses on the season. The Atlantic Coast conference is down this year, and even winning the conference tournament might not push Duke ahead of the Orange. No. 6 Purdue will have a tough road to win the Big Ten conference tournament, and even if No. 5 Ohio State can win that tournament, it still would have seven losses on the year.   West Virginia is the only team in the Big East with a shot — though it is an outside shot — at getting a No. 1 seed. But even winning the Big East tournament probably won’t be enough to get it done.   Despite all of this, the media did not give the Orange a break Thursday, inquiring about SU’s seeding numerous times. ‘I think we’ve still been one of the most consistent teams in the country where we can get a No. 1 seed,’ sophomore guard Scoop Jardine said. ‘But it doesn’t matter, but I think we should.’ And with a two-game losing streak and a starting center battling an injury, it’s safe to say the Orange have other things to worry about.  ‘We’re not concerned about that,’ senior guard Andy Rautins said. ‘We just want to get there and play well, regardless of who we play. Either way, you’re going to have to beat teams. Everybody is going to be at their A-game. There aren’t going to be bad teams at that tournament. We’ll be satisfied and prepared wherever we’re at.’ Monroe explodes — again  John Thompson III knew Syracuse did not want Greg Monroe to score. That’s why the Orange threw bodies at Monroe every time he touched the ball in the high post, making it hard to get shots. Luckily for the Georgetown head coach, his center is quite the passer.   Monroe led Georgetown with seven assists in the Hoyas’ upset of top-seeded Syracuse Thursday afternoon. He also scored 15 points and hauled in a game-high 10 rebounds despite being hounded for most of the game.  ‘We’re fine because he did a good job of finding his teammates for open shots, open layups, open cuts. So I think that’s what they did,’ Thompson said. ‘Everyone knows Greg is an unselfish player. Had a terrific game without getting a lot of shots. I’m not sure how many points he ended up with. 15 (points), 10 (rebounds), seven (assists). That’s pretty damn good.’  Monroe scored just four points in the first half, but he never forced anything as he patiently waited to find open teammates. In the second half, he continued that process, catching the ball in the high post and waiting to discover holes in the Orange zone. He assisted on a Chris Wright field goal that gave the Hoyas a 72-63 lead with 5:43 remaining, and had four assists and 11 points in the second half.  The sophomore also hit 5-of-8 free throws down the stretch to help ice the game. Monroe kept Syracuse’s big man combo of Rick Jackson and Arinze Onuaku to just seven points combined.  ‘They found Monroe in the middle and he did a great job finding the shooters,’ Jackson said of Syracuse’s change in game plan Thursday. ‘It wasn’t about him out there scoring points, he did a great job passing the ball and that’s what it is.’  [email protected]@syr.edulast_img read more

$50 million charges deep cut 888 Holdings 2017 results

first_img The governance of FTSE250 listed 888 Holdings, is assessing its future strategic options as regulatory charges of $50 million have drastically impacted the firm’s full-year 2017 profits.Publishing its FY2017 results, 888 reported a 4% group revenue increase to $541 million, supported by the double-digit growth of its sports betting division up 45% to $75.5 million (FY2016: $51.9 million).Despite facing ‘heightened regulatory scrutiny in the UK market’, 888 details strong progress and a strengthened commercial pipeline within the majority of its regulated/taxed territory activity.Closing 2017 accounts, 888 would declare a corporate adjusted EBITDA of $100 million up 12% on corresponding FY2016’s $90.2 million.Nevertheless, as reported in H1 2017, 888 has been forced to absorb a combined $50 million in ‘exceptional charges’, relating to $45 million VAT penalty for its German market activity prior to 2015, alongside its $5.5 million relating to its UKGC social responsibility settlement.The penalty charges would see 888 declare FY2017 profits of $18 million, down 65% on FY2016’s $59 million.At present, 888’s governance and its legal counsel, are reviewing the firm’s regulated market positions, with a focus on its German market activity.“Following a recent ruling by the Federal Administrative Court of Germany, the Board of 888, together with the Group’s legal counsel, is assessing the status and breadth of its offerings in the German market.”Despite 888’s profit woes for 2017, Itai Frieberger Group CEO remains positive of the firm’s future outlook stating that 888 operations had been resilient against adverse conditions.“888 has delivered another year of progress achieving record revenues of US$541.8 million and a 12 per cent increase in Adjusted EBITDA. The Group’s growth was driven by further expansion in Casino, Sport and across regulated markets. This very robust outcome was achieved despite the Group’s withdrawal from certain markets during the year and demonstrates 888’s resilience and agility that is underpinned by first-class technology and an outstanding team.The Group has continued to reap the rewards of its investments in recent years in several growth markets including Spain and Italy. These markets helped to drive very strong revenue growth in regulated markets excluding the UK of 26%. The Group continues to gain momentum in Sport where revenue increased an impressive 45%. Current trading since the start of the year is in line with our expectations with average daily revenue 6% above the previous year, representing an 8% increase when adjusted for the withdrawn markets. 888 is a resilient and diversified operator with scalable proprietary technology. The Group has a number of significant growth opportunities ahead and the Board is confident of another year of operational progress.” Winning Post: Swedish regulator pushes back on ‘Storebror’ approach to deposit limits August 24, 2020 Share Related Articles StumbleUpon Share UKGC launches fourth National Lottery licence competition August 28, 2020 Submit MoneyMatrix boosts wire transfer options by integrating Klarna’s Sofort August 24, 2020last_img read more
