Syracuse not getting distracted in wake of reports of NCAA investigation

first_img Published on March 20, 2013 at 9:48 pm Contact Michael: mjcohe02@syr.edu | @Michael_Cohen13 Facebook Twitter Google+ SAN JOSE, Calif. — For the second time in two years, Syracuse entered the NCAA Tournament in the middle of a story where basketball was not the focus. Its on-the-court achievements and current preparation once again took a backseat to reports of NCAA activity that cast a bit of a cloud over a team playing arguably the best it has all season.“Same story they had last year at this time,” head coach Jim Boeheim said. “I guess that’s annual. I guess next year we’ll get it again.”CBS Sports reported Wednesday that the Syracuse basketball team has been under investigation for a period of years, and that the school has received a letter of preliminary inquiry from the NCAA. The article comes one year after Fab Melo was pronounced ineligible two days before the Orange took the floor against UNC-Asheville in Pittsburgh.Boeheim fielded a handful of questions on the matter in his press conference Wednesday afternoon inside HP Pavilion, offering little more than several variations of “no comment.” Daryl Gross, Syracuse’s athletic director, would not comment on the record. He referred all questions to the answers Boeheim provided minutes earlier.“There’s no distractions for me,” Boeheim said. “And these players, there’s absolutely no distractions for them. They’re here to play Montana, and that’s it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse takes the floor against the Grizzlies on Thursday at 9:57 p.m.Boeheim explained that the biggest difference from this year to last year is that the 2011-12 team was forced to deal with the absence of one of its most important players. Melo, a 7-foot center who was the Big East Defensive Player of the Year, had emerged as a threat on both ends of the floor for a team that lacked quality depth at the center position.This year’s story is “just talk,” as Boeheim described it.“Last year was completely different,” he said. “That was not a distraction, it was an absence. And they handled it as well as they could.”Gross grew frustrated when asked about the CBS Sports report. He said Boeheim’s comments provided everything that needed to be said, and he walked away when asked to confirm that the school had received a letter of inquiry from the NCAA.Brandon Triche, a senior guard, said he had not heard about the report, meaning it wasn’t any sort of a distraction. He said he and his teammates were not a part of it, so it won’t take away from their focus.Boeheim, though, is a part of it. And though the moderator attempted to quell reporters from probing the matter, Boeheim seemed to welcome the questions if only for an opportunity to deflect them.“I don’t mind,” he said. “You can ask a hundred of them.”But even when all the questions were asked, no new information was offered. Syracuse still has a game to play, and that, Boeheim said, is most important.“Doesn’t bother me,” Boeheim said. “Not at all. We’re concerned about playing Montana.” Commentslast_img read more

Viterbi professor featured by NASA

first_imgThe National Inventors Hall of Fame and the History Channel’s Modern Marvels program has named Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis research as one of the top 25 best inventions of 2006. Khoshnevis, a professor in USC’s Viterbi School of Engineering presented his work in Washington D.C. on July 23, NASA’s annual Technology Day.Out of this world · As well as teaching, Professor Behrokh Khoshnevis also serves as a Felllow member of the Institute of Industrial Engineering. – Photo courtesy of USC Viterbi School of EngineeringKhoshnevis’ research is based on his invention of the groundbreaking automated construction method called “Contour Crafting,” which creates large scale structures layer by layer, similar to that of the process of 3-D Printing.For his work with NASA, Khoshnevis tailored the process of “Contour Crafting” for extraterrestrial applications.“I was looking at areas where my technology could be used besides the applications in building construction,” Khoshnevis said. “I thought about construction on the moon or on Mars, and I noticed that primarily, everything is based on taking stuff from Earth.”Khoshnevis, in collaboration with NASA, is developing landing pads for the moon and Mars.“So far, everything that has landed on the moon and Mars has landed on soft soil, and that is pretty dangerous… You need a flat surface which is also strong, which is also capable of handling high temperature of the exhaust fumes.”If successful, Professor Khoshnevis’ endeavors could vault USC onto the global stage.“Professor Khoshnevis’ research really establishes USC as a global community, and I think many students will be inspired by his passion to further pursue their own goals,” said Ying Ying Lei, a sophomore majoring in electrical engineering.Brian Weiniger, a junior majoring in astronautical engineering, also praised Khoshnevis’ research.“Colonizing the moon can be done in many ways. Rather than sending rockets to build lunar outposts piece by piece, this new technology holds the capability to build everything on the moon while using materials that are already there,” Weiniger said. “It goes to show how brilliant the professors are at USC. Having role models like Khoshnevis teach at our school is inspiring for students to push the envelope and create the ideas that will mold our future.”Khoshnevis teaches both industrial and systems engineering, and civil and environmental engineering classes, and is the director of the Center for Rapid Automated Fabrication Technologies, as well as the Manufacturing Engineering Graduate Program at USC. His work, however, is not limited to the field of engineering.“There are a lot of students sending me emails who want to be a part of the technology development,” Khoshnevis said. “There are students from architecture, engineering, business school, even social sciences and the arts. There is a sense that we are on the edge of something that could change the face of civilization.”While his research has already achieved significant results, Khoshnevis has even loftier expectations for it.“What I basically envision and hope is that one [of] the most major technologies that will have a very significant impact on the well-being of the whole population is about to emerge out of this activity,” he said.last_img read more

‘Divisive and unhelpful’ – Mitchell quits sub-committee; accuses ‘couple’ leaders of undermining CARICOM

first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada (CMC): Grenada’s Prime minister, Dr Keith Mitchell, said he resigned as chairman of CARICOM’s sub-committee on cricket governance because he was angered by the behaviour of “a couple of our leaders in the region”. Prime Minister Mitchell did not call out the names of his regional counterparts, but accused them of undermining CARICOM’s position by making “divisive” public statements after agreements would have been reached at the heads-of-government level. In an interview with Grenada Sports, Prime Minister Mitchell said he has that suggested Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent and the Grenadines take up the role. “I gave it up because I felt angered by the behaviour of a couple of our leaders in the region and the way they behaved when we took a decision, and I felt that they undermined the authority of the chairman of the sub-committee at the time, and therefore, I did not feel I could continue in that position,” the Grenadian leader explained. “I spoke to Ralph, and in fact, I sent a message to him because I hold that position of recognising his leadership seriously. So and I told him that I was going to issue a statement as the Prime Minister of Grenada, and he knows my position as a cricket lover.” In June, Antigua and Barbuda’s Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, “categorically rejected” the call for the dissolution of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), putting him at odds with the Grenadian leader. “Today, I categorically reject the call for the dissolution of the West Indies Cricket Board and I do so in my capacity as chairman of the CARICOM Cricket Committee governing West Indies cricket,” Prime Minister Browne said to an audience that included WICB president Dave Cameron. “I believe firmly that to dissolve the West Indies Cricket Board would be to plunge West Indies cricket into further chaos and confusion,” Browne had said. Dr Mitchell has been at the forefront of spearheading efforts to restructure the WICB and has endorsed the recent Barriteau Report, which last year recommended “the immediate dissolution” of the embattled WICB. He stressed that if regional leaders refuse to speak with one voice the WICB would continue to operate without being made to account for their actions. “We have to speak with one voice. The problem is when you have some of us going in different directions, especially when we make decisions at CARICOM level and then one or two of us go off on our own and making opposite statements and claiming that we are not part of the decision,” Prime Minister Mitchell pointed out. “I think that becomes divisive and unhelpful, and it gives those who wish to continue to do as they want the opportunity to do so, and I think that’s unfortunate because the region is the one that is losing.” The Barriteau Report was commissioned by CARICOM, with agreement from the WICB, and authored by UWI Cave Hill Principal Professor Eudine Barriteau. The WICB rejected the findings. ‘CHAOS AND CONFUSION’last_img read more

Notre Dame’s Quinn forced to play defense

first_img“It’s funny to hear some of that and you’re thinking, `Man, did I not lift today? Did somebody see me in the weight room miss a rep?’ ” Quinn wondered. “I’m kind of confused. It’s one of those things you can use as motivation.” Northern Illinois running back Garrett Wolfe would like to tell NFL teams to look past the numbers, in this case his 5-foot-7-inch stature, and focus on numbers that matter – 179 all-purpose yards per game. “People are entitled to their beliefs, and they feel that I wouldn’t have accomplished those same things playing in a bigger conference,” Wolfe said. “But my offensive line coach (Sam Pittman) said it best when he said everything I’ve accomplished I’ve accomplished with a Mid-American Conference offensive line. It wasn’t like I was out there playing with a Big Ten offensive line. (And) I wasn’t running up and down the field against air.” Because much of the NFL is obsessed with what they can measure, Wolfe is prepared to be ignored by many teams. “I’m a running back who may not fit everyone’s scheme,” he said. “I may not fit what everyone’s trying to do offensively, so there probably will be 15 or 20 teams not interested in me at all. But with the NFL draft, you just need one team.” INDIANAPOLIS – Brady Quinn is not working out at the NFL scouting combine this weekend. He will do the interviews, take the Wonderlic intelligence test and go through medical evaluations with teams, particularly those concerned with the knee injury that occurred during the USC game, aggravated in the Sugar Bowl loss to LSU and is not fully healed at this point. But as far as he is concerned, talk that his stock in the April NFL draft may be slipping is something to be ignored and laid to rest on pro days March 4 and 22. He is unequivocal; he will tell NFL general managers he clearly should be one of the top three picks in the draft. “There’s not one other player who has had the kind of coaching I’ve had the past couple of years,” Quinn said. “There’s not one other player who has done what I’ve done the past couple of years. You’ve seen the progress, the numbers and everything we’ve done at Notre Dame, and I feel I am the best leader for a team that needs someone to fulfill that job.” What about the negatives that are coming up, as they inevitably do before the draft? center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
