USC places 13th in NCAA Championships

first_imgOne year after finishing fourth overall at the NCAA Championships, the USC men’s swimming and diving team had a slightly more difficult time putting together the kind of team effort it would have taken to top last year’s performance. After only dropping one head-to-head meet during the regular season and finishing second in the Pac-12 Championships, the Trojans finished 13th overall at the NCAA Championships in Atlanta, Georgia.Texas, the winner of last year’s national championship, repeated this year with a dominant collective effort. Led by junior Will Licon and sophomore Joseph Schooling, who each set NCAA records in their respective events, the Longhorns never trailed on their way to the national title. With their win in this year’s championships, Texas ties Michigan for the most all-time men’s swimming titles with 12.At 13th overall, the Trojans were the second-highest finisher of all Pac-12 competitors. Cal, last year’s Pac-12 champions, finished second overall at the meet with 351 points. USC edged out Stanford — this year’s conference champion — by 4.5 points; the Trojans scored 117 to the Cardinal’s 112.5.The Trojans began the tournament on Wednesday with a ninth-place finish in the 800-yard freestyle relay to match their ninth overall ranking in the nation. Freshman Patrick Mulcare, junior Michael Domagala, senior Morten Klarskov and junior Reed Malone turned in solid times in their individual legs, but collectively they were not quick enough to repeat their title-winning performance from last year.On Thursday, the Trojans saw strong efforts from Malone and their two star divers, seniors Collin Pollard and Deon Reid. Malone placed third in the 500-yard freestyle with a time of 4:12.55; Malone also reached the podium at the 2015 championships with another third-place finish.Pollard, last year’s Pac-12 swimmer of the month, was an NCAA “A” Finalist for the first time this season with a seventh-place finish on the 1-meter. Last year, Pollard scored twice to become a “B” Finalist for the first time, but his score this year was good enough to make him a first-time All-American, a fitting finish to his stellar collegiate career. Reid finished ninth on the 1-meter for his first-ever “B” Final.“I am so pleased with the first diving event [Thursday],” diving coach Hongping Li said. “Collin and Deon really opened it with a super performance. The key success for both divers was to dive with fun and to meet a personal target score, which they did.”Malone continued his strong showing on Friday, finishing 5th overall in the 200-yard freestyle. His time of 1:32.54 is USC’s second-best time in the event in school history, and his new personal best time in the event. Sophomore Ralf Tribuntsov also placed fifth in his event, the 100-yard backstroke, after finishing 8th last year as a freshman. Mulcare also scored points for the Trojans on Friday, finishing seventh in the “B” Final in the 100-yard backstroke.Several USC swimmers scored on Saturday, the final day of the meet. Sophomore Pawel Furtek was the first swimmer to contribute with a personal-best time in the mile, good enough for 10th overall. Mulcare, swimming in his first NCAA “A” Final, finished 8th in the 200-yard backstroke, an event he has dominated all season. Tribuntsov scored again with a 15th overall finish in the 100-yard freestyle.Two Trojans scored in the 200-yard breaststroke: junior Steven Stumph, who has won the past two conference titles in the event, won the “B” Final with a ninth place overall finish, and freshman Carsten Vissering scored his first-ever NCAA points with a 16th overall finish in the event. Tribuntsov, Mulcare, junior David Morgan Jr. and Malone placed seventh in the “B” Final of the 400-yard freestyle relay to close out the meet for the Trojans.Despite not matching last year’s top-four finish, the future looks bright for USC. All of this year’s scoring swimmers, with the exception of Klarskov, will be returning next season, and the young core of talent now has one additional postseason under their belts. The diving team will have a difficult time replacing Pollard and Reid, but whoever steps in to replace those divers will look up to rising junior Dashiell Enos and the rest of the veteran squad.last_img read more

ICC World Twenty20: Virat Kohli better batsman than I was, says Sourav Ganguly

first_imgFormer India skipper Sourav Ganguly today refused to accept that Virat Kohli was the best batsman in the world but conceded that the Indian run-machine was one of the greatest and compared him with the likes of AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla.Kohli stood out for India once again, slamming an unbeaten 55 off 37 balls on a tricky Eden Gardens pitch in a six-wicket victory over Pakistan. While most in India have started equating the Delhi dasher to Sachin Tendulkar after Saturday’s innings, Ganguly restored some sanity to the debate. (Also read: Here’s what Team India should learn from Virat Kohli) “When Kohli bats it looks easy for the team. His hunger stands out, he is one of the best in the world,” Ganguly told Sports Today. “But I don’t think he is the BEST in the world because you also have to look at someone like AB de Viilliers and don’t forget Hashim Amla, whose record is outstanding.” (Also read: Virat Kohli dedicates match-winning knock to Sachin Tendulkar)However, Ganguly said Kohli was a better player than he was. “Kohli a better player than me. When I see him on the ground, he wants to compete hard. He is a 100 per cent man and he is blessed with special abilities.” (India now a dangerous unit after blowing away Pakistan )Ganguly said Kohli was an amazing player and recalled some of the sensational chases he was part of. “I have seen him score 50-ball hundreds against Australia in unbelievable chases and they were not bad bowling attacks.” (Virat Kohli’s hunger to perform sets him apart, says MS Dhoni)advertisementKohli has been the cornerstone of India’s victories over Pakistan in their last three matches against the arch-rivals. He had smashed a hundred against them in the 2015 World Cup at the Adelaide Oval, cracked a classy 49 on a green Dhaka pitch at the Asia Cup T20 before unleashing some breathtaking shots Saturday night. However, Ganguly said the Pakistani teams Tendulkar played against and the ones Kohli bats against were very different.”The Pakistani teams of the two eras are like chalk and cheese. They had the likes of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Shoaib Akhthar.”Former England skipper Nasser Hussain also felt that it was unfair to compare Kohli with Tendulkar but said the Indian Test skipper is a league above the rest of his contemporaries.Hussain, like everyone else who watched the India-Pakistan game on Saturday, was floored by Kohli’s special effort at the Eden Gardens.”It looked like Kohli was batting on a different surface from everyone else. Everyone was struggling but him. He was imperious in his timing. He is an absolute supertar in all three formats. Give him any total and he can chase it down,” Hussain told India Today.last_img read more
