Brian Hahn

first_imgBrian Hahn recently resigned as the boys’ basketball coach at Pendleton Heights.  Although he has been quite successful in his 9 years as Pendleton Heights head coach, he wants to start a basketball academy in the Indianapolis area.According to several media reports Hahn believes that there is a need to teach basketball skills to all ages of kids from k-12 grades.  He plans to start this summer at a yet unnamed location with kids from 3rd grade and up.  If this is successful, he will eventually include all aged kids.His academy will operate for the 8 months that athletes are not involved in a high school program so that he will not interfere with the programs there.I wonder if this is an attempt to help young basketball players who do not want to go the AAU route or are not good enough to be recruited by an AAU coach?  Hahn eventually hopes to have enough kids enrolled to operate at 2 locations around Indianapolis.If my memory serves me correctly, Hahn played basketball at New Castle High School and later at Butler University.last_img read more

Wisconsin stuns powerhouse Penn State

first_imgSunday’s win over Penn State is the first 5-set victory Wisconsin experienced all season. It was also the Badgers’ first win over the Nittany Lions since 2006.[/media-credit]To be the best, you have to beat the best – and the Wisconsin women’s volleyball team did just that Sunday.The Badgers (14-12, 6-8) knocked off defending four-time national champion No. 6 Penn State (17-6, 11-3) at the Field House in five sets, 26-24, 25-19, 32-34, 14-25, 15-12.Sunday afternoon’s match resembled more of a boxing match than a volleyball contest, as Wisconsin and Penn State exchanged blow after blow on the court in one of the hardest fought and most exciting matches of the season, featuring 32 tied scores and 12 lead changes. Wisconsin beat Penn State for the first time since 2006 and won for the first time in five sets all season.“That was a great win for our program in a lot of ways,” head coach Pete Waite said. “We saw some very good ball on our side of the net Friday against Ohio State in the first set, but we didn’t sustain that. This time we sustained it.”Helping in large part to sustain that performance was junior Alexis Mitchell, who fought admirably against Penn State’s gigantic front line, as the middle blocker totaled 10 kills and seven blocks against one of the nation’s best squads.“I’m still in shock,” junior Alexis Mitchell said. “It’s just great to win like that, especially after letting them come back. We felt a little bit down, but we dug deep and pulled it out in the fifth set. It was a great game to play and be a part of.”Right off the bat, it was a tight one. In an opening set that had seven tied scores and two lead changes, the Badgers came back after trailing for a majority of the set. Down 17-14, Wisconsin used a combination of Penn State attack errors, blocks and several strong kills from the front line to down Penn State.In the opening set, the Badgers hit a lower percentage than the Nittany Lions, as Penn State outhit Wisconsin .250 to .182. However, the Badgers benefited nicely from five Nittany Lion service errors, as Penn State ultimately committed 13 on the day compared to Wisconsin’s three.“A big stat for me in the match was the service errors,” Waite said. “It should make the players feel good that [serve-receive] came together when it needed to.”However, after a Badger win in the second set it looked like the wheels might fall off, as the Nittany Lions took the third and fourth sets. The Badgers had numerous opportunities to complete the sweep in the third set, since the team had the Nittany Lions at match point five separate times in extra points. But momentum looked to be shifting to Penn State, especially after Wisconsin dropped the fourth set 14-25.But the Badgers finished what they started in the fifth and final set – thanks in large part to a key 7-2 run that helped break a 2-2 tie. The final point of the set and the match came on a kill by junior Bailey Reshel, bringing a thunderous roar from the home crowd and a jubilant team celebration onto the floor.“I think we knew after the fourth set we needed to make a change,” sophomore Annemarie Hickey said. “All of us wanted to win really bad; we’ve just been really sick of losing. We talked all week about playing for our team, and I think we really came together as a team that game.”It was an impressive victory for Wisconsin, considering the team was coming off arguably its most disappointing loss of the season. Friday night at home against No. 22 Ohio State was a completely different affair, as Wisconsin looked terrific in the first set but faded fast, falling in four sets, 20-25, 25-20, 25-18, 25-21.Wisconsin hit its second-lowest hitting percentage of the season, as the Badgers posted a measly .098 ratio (44 kills, 30 errors, 143 attempts). After Friday, it looked like the Badgers might be losing grips on their NCAA tournament hopes, but the Badgers showed a giant burst of life by responding from a disappointing loss in the biggest way possible.“We really found a way as a team – everyone on the bench and the court – to pull through and get this game,” Mitchell said. “Five set games so far this season haven’t gone our way, so we really wanted to get back on track. This was a great win for us and a great confidence builder going into facing Michigan and Michigan State next weekend because we know what they’re capable of, but now we know what we’re capable of.”last_img read more

Men’s hockey gets glimpse of future against PSU

first_imgKelsey Fenton / The Badger HeraldThings are about to change for the Wisconsin men’s hockey team in a B1G way.After almost 43 years in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, the Badgers will leave the conference next fall to join the new Big Ten conference in its inaugural season.When the Badgers host the Penn State Nittany Lions this upcoming Sunday and Monday in their first meeting since PSU created a Division 1 program this fall, fans will get a glimpse of one of the Big Ten hockey conference’s new annual matchups.Over the years, the WCHA has proven itself to be one of the toughest conferences in the country. Since 1951, the conference has produced 37 national champions and at lease one team in the National Championship round of the NCAA playoffs in 56 of the last 60 seasons.For freshman forward Nic Kerdiles, the chance to play in the storied WCHA conference was a major factor in his decision to play hockey for Wisconsin.“I’m really impressed by [this conference] and it is one the reasons I decided to come here,” Kerdiles said. “It’s got a lot of history, and it is unfortunate it is going away, but this year it has been a lot of fun. If you look through the standings, there are a lot of teams with only one point, two points difference.”But beyond the current crop of players, the WCHA holds an important place in the history of hockey at UW.UW interim assistant coach Matt Walsh played in the WCHA for the Badgers from 1982 to 1986 – earning a National Championship with the team as a freshman in 1983. While teams have joined the conference since he graduated, he believes the level of talent and competition in the WCHA over the years is unrivaled.“You can’t take a night off,” Walsh said. “Maybe before some nights you could depending on who you played, but now … you can’t afford to take a night off.”Joining Wisconsin in the inaugural season of the Big Ten conference next year are five other teams – Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State and Minnesota.After years of consideration, the formation of the new conference was spurred on by the announcement this past offseason that Penn State would upgrade its club hockey team, the Penn State Icers, to a Division 1 program with a new name – the Nittany Lions.According to Big Ten rules, six teams are required to have a conference championship, and before PSU’s announcement, only five traditional Big ten teams existed.Now with six schools hosting Division 1 hockey programs, the Big Ten finally has the green light to start a hockey conference.The move to a new Big Ten conference – while exciting for fans and players – means some of the Badgers’ traditional rivalry games will no longer be conference games with WCHA points on the line.“It’s going to be different for sure,” Kerdiles said. “We are going to try to keep some of those rivalries. I talked to coach and I think they are already working on making sure we play North Dakota next year and keeping at least one rivalry going.”Still, with only 20 conferences games slated for each of the inaugural members, this leaves 14 games for each team to schedule games with other nonconference opponents, such as North Dakota.In addition to maintaining old rivals, Wisconsin will have its fair share of new rivalries to develop.While Penn State’s history in college hockey may still be in its infancy, both Michigan and Michigan State already have successful hockey programs established.In 2011, Michigan was the runner up to Minnesota-Duluth in the National Championship game while, just a few years earlier in 2007, Michigan State won it all.Add those finishes to two National Championships in back-to-back years for Minnesota in 2002 and 2003 with a National Championship for Wisconsin in 2006, it becomes clear the Big Ten conference has all the makings of a potential powerhouse conference in the years to come.Combine stronger nonconference matchups with a difficult conference slate and Walsh believes future schedules could have much more quality competition than in years past.But, potentially more important for each of the teams entering the Big Ten, regularly scheduled matchups against familiar opponents could help strengthen ties to the sport for Wisconsin fans who are used to the Badgers playing teams like Ohio State and Michigan in football and basketball.“Having Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State – all of those teams come in – to the average fan, they will recognize those teams,” junior defenseman Frankie Simonelli said. “When they hear Colorado College is coming to town or Denver, they might not be as familiar with it.”“I think it will bring a bigger variety of fan base to our team and could help make the sport more popular [here].”last_img read more

Lakers’ Larry Nance Jr. back on practice court after having cast removed

first_imgLOS ANGELES — The night Larry Nance Jr. broke his hand, he sat in front of his locker in Portland, imagining the worst.Little more than two weeks later, he appears to be on the cusp of a return to the court.“My spirits are much higher for sure,” said Nance, whose cast was removed on Nov. 14, 11 days after he underwent surgery to repair a fractured second metacarpal in his left hand.Related Articles The Lakers gave a four-to-six week timeline for Nance, which the power forward now says was “extremely overly-cautious.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersHe said he is back to doing everything with his injured hand except “holding heavy dumbbells” and “hanging from the rim.”“I didn’t think he’d be shooting and doing all this stuff already after breaking his hand,” Luke Walton said.The Lakers have not adjusted their timeline. The Lakers have games Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday before a four-day break over Thanksgiving.The question facing Walton is whether Nance resumes his role as a starter or if rookie Kyle Kuzma has won that spot in Nance’s absence. Before Friday, Kuzma was averaging 16.1 points and 9.1 rebounds as a starter.“Kyle’s played great and he’s the starter until Larry comes back,” Walton said, “and then we’ll re-evaluate and discuss what we should do.” Nance has maintained he is not concerned with whether he starts or comes off the bench.“If Kuz is who they think will give us best chance to win,” he said, “then Kuz it is.”OHMIJOSH!If you think Lonzo Ball has faced criticism as a rookie, imagine if the Lakers had drafted Josh Jackson instead.It could have happened, although how serious the Lakers ever were about drafting anyone other than Ball remains unknown, but the Lakers twice worked out Jackson, who ultimately went fourth to the Suns.“He’s a versatile player obviously,” Walton said. “And a hard-nosed defensive player. Everything we talked to him about and the coaches we spoke to all talked about how competitive of an athlete he was, no matter what you were doing.”His rookie season, however, has been a bit of a struggle. He entered Friday averaging 9.7 points and 3.5 rebounds while shooting 39 percent from the field. He caught the attention of both Walton and Suns’ interim head coach Jay Triano with his late effort against James Harden in a blowout loss to the Rockets on Thursday.“When we drafted him he was going to be a defensive guy,” Triano said. “I think that’s who he will be in the NBA. Not restricted to just that, but with his length and quickness we think he can be a good defender.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Heisler: Lakers dream of LeBron James, even a middle-aged one Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball gets a new haircut last_img read more
