Track team playing favorites

first_imgHaving just taken a monumental step forward in the history of the program by earning its first-ever No. 1 ranking, the Wisconsin men’s track team is attempting to take the next step at the national meet this weekend. Already known as the perennial power in the Big Ten — UW won its seventh-straight Big Ten Indoor title just two weeks ago — these Badgers feel like this is the year they will truly step into the national spotlight.”I think we could definitely win it all this weekend,” said Craig Miller, 2006 Big Ten Indoor Freshman of the Year. “We’ve got just as many guys going in as some of the other top teams, so there’s no reason we can’t come out with an NCAA Championship.”As the Badgers head to Randal Tyson Center in Fayetteville, Ark., they go into the meet in unfamiliar territory. They are now the top-ranked team in the nation, taking over the top spot from Florida State, who has been ranked No. 1 the entire indoor season, in both polls released earlier this week. They also go into the meet with all eight qualifiers ranked in the top eight in their respective events.”It’s the meet that you look forward to as far as doing the best you can at the highest level,” head coach Ed Nuttycombe said at a press conference Monday. “We had a very good conference championship meet and obviously came out on top. But that’s kind of old news now. We’re looking to try to see what we can do at the NCAA level. And we’ve got a good number of athletes ready to go and we’re hoping to make a big impact.”The Badgers are led by senior Chris Solinsksy, who goes into the meet as the favorite to three-peat in the 3,000-meter run and is favored to win the 5,000-meter run — an event he won at last year’s NCAA outdoor championship. Some think Solinsky may have deeper motivation going into this weekend’s championship. As a member of the cross country team last fall, he was a favorite to win the individual title but did not run up to his ability, finishing 73rd overall.”He’s an awful good cross country (runner), but he’s just a better track athlete and has more confidence on the track than he does in cross country,” Nuttycombe said. “And I think it made him hungry. He was embarrassed and it made him hungry for the track season. I think he’s ready to go.”Other qualifiers include senior Demi Omole, who is ranked second behind Jacoby Ford of Clemson in the 60-meter dash. Omole’s Big Ten Conference record time of 6.55 is just .03 slower than Ford’s.Sophomore Stu Eagon is seeded third behind Solinsky and Colby Wissel of Kansas in the 3,000 meters at a time of 7:54.09. He is also seeded fourth in the 5,000 meters running in 13:41.52. Senior Tim Nelson joins Solinsky and Eagon in the top five of the 5,000 meters with a time of 13:42.18.Wisconsin’s distance medley relay team consisting of Miller, James Groce, Joe Pierre and Solinsky is seeded fifth in 9:34.54. Rounding out the list of qualifiers is senior Joe Detmer, ranked eighth in the heptathlon with a UW-record total 5,651 points.”The first thing you have to do is get the opportunity to score and then take advantage of the moment,” Nuttycombe said. “When you have that few opportunities, you’re right, it’s about hitting on a great number of them, if not all of them in some capacity.”The Badgers earned their first No. 1 ranking in their team history this week, and, with that, are looking to top their best finish of third at an NCAA meet. They are also looking to become the first Big Ten team ever to win the NCAA Indoor Championship.last_img read more

Ross Haselhurst, Bede Gaming: How a modular platform approach puts operators on the path to global success

first_img Share Companies looking to diversify their offerings in a bid to enter into emerging markets frequently hit challenges in resource, focus and market knowledge. Ross Haselhurst, Commercial Director at Bede Gaming, explains how partnering with the right platform is essential to unlocking elusive opportunities. SBC: With more markets regulating, what benefits do you see in a modular approach to integration?RH: For a business to thrive in a global industry evolving at pace, it needs to be flexible. If it were only as simple as transferring operations from one market to another in cookie-cutter style, those responsible for expansion into new markets would have an easy job. Unfortunately, most know it doesn’t work like that. With each jurisdiction having its own unique blend of demands, requirements and regulations to meet, the conversations we often find ourselves having with operators is that they struggle to capitalise on new markets whilst they’re still investing heavily in their core markets and that is often just to stand still, especially in the UK.With more countries regulating and competition intensifying, operators are under mounting pressure to secure competitive advantage. Our iGaming platform ‘HUB’ gives operators the ability to bring to bear a tailored selection of modules and third parties relevant to a given market, such as content, payment providers, identification systems, and fraud prevention tooling as an example. And, allowing operators to build and layer their own IP on top of our ours provides even more optionality and flexibility.SBC: In what ways does a digital platform help when entering new markets?RH: Capacity is frequently a stumbling block for operators in new market entry. Alongside the growing competition, regulatory pressures and the associated costs, many with legacy or proprietary platforms can often find the whole process costly and time-consuming. Sometimes it is the proprietary platform build that doesn’t quite hit the mark, other times it’s more a question of pulling resource off a new market to concentrate on other challenges causing a dilution of impact in either the core or new markets. Both ultimately hindering the prospects of genuine long-term success. Adopting a platform like Bede solves these issues by providing a turnkey solution that gives operators global support, while also allowing them to retain total control of their own software and consistently deliver on their USPs. It provides a whole other resource from which operators can draw. Our platform facilitates the creation of great player experience. The ability to tailor games and journeys, as well as campaigns and responsible gambling measures are all easily adapted according to individual player demands, making the bespoke platform offering a powerful ally when entering a new market. SBC: What features stand out to make the Bede platform one of the most digitally-advanced in the industry? RH: We continue to add a host of innovative new features and functionality on the platform, which are informed by a combination of client feedback, industry shifts and experience expertise. As well as all the usual tools you’d expect to find in a platform, it’s our cutting-edge campaign management and ring-fenced bonusing that really sets us apart. Bede’s campaign manager tool allows for automated or real-time promotion, on an extremely granular level to give players that truly personalised brand feel. This teamed with our real-time bonusing capability that allows operators to cross-sell and promote different verticals will significantly benefit our partners for many years.Operators aiming to unlock new markets require a localised approach that is fast and adaptable. They need to be able to instantly react to regulatory changes and new developments, as well as release new products to increasingly demanding audiences. Along with a consistent two-week release cycle, the Bede platform delivers great value to customers by giving them the ability to respond rapidly to changes in market priorities. Our partners have access to a carefully curated selection of over 3,000 games from more than 150 of the world’s best providers, with localised content to target specific markets. The addition of two premium sportsbook providers, SBTech and Kambi, also enables our partners to select from the best of breed sports betting suppliers via the industry’s most complete, powerful product.

Costa Rica coach Paulo Wanchope resigns after brawl

first_imgCosta Rica coach Paulo Wanchope resigned on Wednesday after being involved in a brawl with a security guard at the end of an Olympic qualifying match against Panama.Wanchope, who was observing the match on Tuesday in Panama City between the respective countries’ under-23 teams, was shown in video footage to retaliate after being pushed by the man.”After a cordial meeting between Paulo Cesar Wanchope and federation (officials), the trainer decided to step aside and leave the position of coach of the national team,” the Costa Rican Football Federation (Fedefutbol) said.Wanchope apologised to Costa Rica and Panama fans for his behaviour, saying he lost his head when he was denied access to the pitch after the match, a 0-0 draw.”We are human beings and unfortunately I reacted in an unacceptable way for the position I held,” Wanchope told a news conference. “But let this not stain what I have done for all of you,” added Wanchope, who played for his country for a decade until 2006. “The (football) ambience is tough, it’s tense, but until yesterday I managed to handle it. One can tolerate comments by reporters and on social media and stay calm but it’s hard to hold back when someone puts their hands on you.”Footage showed that, at the end of the game, Wanchope opened a gate leading down to the pitch and was pushed from behind by the security guard. Wanchope turned around and pushed him back.The man kicked the coach in the thigh and then threw some punches at him, while Wanchope tried to wrestle him onto some plastic seats. Several other security guards then intervened to pull the men apart.Former Derby County, West Ham United, Manchester City and Malaga player Wanchope was named as Costa Rica coach in February. He was previously assistant to Jorge Luis Pinto when Costa Rica reached the quarter-finals at the World Cup. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM. Our hashtag is #JoySportslast_img read more

DraftKings Week 16 Monday Night Showdown: Picks, advice for Vikings vs. Packers NFL DFS

first_imgMORE MNF: Alexander MattisonDraftKings Showdown Picks: Vikings vs. PackersCAPTAIN (1.5x points, 1.5x price): WR Adam Thielen, Vikings ($12,900)Thielen is the lowest priced of any of what you would call this game’s “studs.” It makes sense – he’s just a week removed from returning from his hamstring injury, and he had only three catches in that return. But this is an uber-talented receiver who, if he has a game like many he had last year or even early this season, could return huge value.FLEX: RB Aaron Jones, Packers ($10,800)You could choose to fade Green Bay’s running game against the Vikings’ front seven in this one, but Jones too consistently gets touches and picks up chunk yardage to avoid him. The other route you could take, if you so chose, is to find a way to fit in Davante Adams or Kirk Cousins instead. Jones balances our lineup a bit more so we touch on the game’s different facets.FLEX: QB Aaron Rodgers, Packers ($10,400)Rodgers underwhelms from a statistical perspective more often than not these days. But he’s still Rodgers, and by playing him with Jones we hopefully get a part in every Green Bay touchdown.FLEX: RB Mike Boone, Vikings ($9,000)If Alexander Mattison is a surprise active, he might be the play in this spot. But Mattison should be out, which would leave Boone to get 15-plus carries against a weak Green Bay run defense, and there could be some people who stay away from Boone as mostly unproven.FLEX: TE Jimmy Graham, Packers ($3,200) Vikings vs. Packers is the final Monday Night Football game of the season, so it’s the final time you can close out your week with our DraftKings Showdown advice after your Sunday picks potentially went poorly. RB injuries for Minnesota create some uncertainty in a game where otherwise we’d like to think we know how the players will perform. A lot of veterans often leads to unexciting NFL DFS advice.Our attempt here is to snag a slightly underpriced Adam Thielen as our captain. That leaves room to get both Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones, while also jumping on the Mike Boone bandwagon while there’s still space. This is mostly a touchdown-dependent play, but we know Rodgers will look Graham’s way in the end zone, so it’s a better bet than any of the other Green Bay TEs.FLEX: TE Irv Smith Jr., Vikings ($3,000)Smith is on the field a lot for a player who doesn’t rack up a ton of catches. But he’s an athletic rookie who will make plays if given the chance, and he’s got more chance of breaking a long one than you’d normally think for a guy with the TE designation.last_img read more
