But this season was when everything materialized for Lyceum, completing one of the biggest turns in the local collegiate scene after sweeping the eliminations and establishing itself as a legitimate title contender.Perez was also a key cog in making that shift a reality, matching his hype with a Season Most Valuable Player after averaging 19.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 1.9 steals.The Pangasinense forward continued that tear in the Finals, where he anchored the surprise top-seed Pirates in the tussle against the Red Lions and averaged 23.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.5 steals.Unfortunately, Lyceum settled for second place.However, the 23-year-old Perez argued that the Pirates have nothing to be ashamed about with how they fared this year.ADVERTISEMENT “When we’re winning, we didn’t let go of each other. The change started in all of us and that culture will not change. Even though our season is over, we won’t leave each other,” he said.And rather than be down, Perez noted that these hardships will just make the Lyceum bond stronger as it seeks to bounce back strong next season.“We won’t promise anything, but we’ll just continue playing our game. After this, tomorrow will be the start of Season 94 for all of us,” he said.

Football Ryan Day talks TCU matchup in Big Ten coaches teleconference

Ohio State redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) fakes a handoff to sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins (2) in the first quarter of the Ohio State-Oregon State game on Sept. 1. Ohio State won 77-31. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorBefore his largest game as acting head coach for Ohio State, Ryan Day faced many questions on the preparation going into Saturday’s matchup against No. 15 TCU during the Big Ten coaches teleconference on Tuesday.Day said the Horned Frogs are a “veteran group whose played big games before,” while also saying that the neutral-site game is basically an away matchup for No. 4 Ohio State, considering AT&T Stadium is “right down the street” from his opponent.Day also complimented TCU’s deep and diverse defense group, which was ranked No. 16 in 2017 in points allowed.“It’s hard to find matchup problems when they have guys that can do multiple things,” Day said.A comparison was made to last season’s matchup against then-No. 5 Oklahoma that Ohio State lost to 31-16 in Week 2, hurting the Buckeyes’ chances at the College Football Playoff at the end of the season.Day said the game against TCU is entirely different, because “that was a different team last year and that was a long time ago.”“Last week if we lose to Rutgers, that could have been the reason too,” Day said. “We know that every time we go out and play we are on the line, and that’s no different this week”Progress in the quarterback roomAfter redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins threw for at least four touchdowns for the second straight game, Day said that he has done a great job at finding receivers in his two starts thus far.But, when talking about where Haskins has improved the most, Day said that it has been in two areas off the field: in the classroom and in the weight room.Though Haskins has proven himself as a threat through the air, Day said he expects that Haskins will continue to improve his run game as the season progresses.“He’s a big guy back there,” Day said. “I do think as the season goes on he will run more.”Day was also asked about redshirt freshman quarterback Tate Martell, who completed all 10 of his passes, both throwing and running for touchdowns of more than 40 yards.Day said that Martell “has improved significantly in the last couple of months,” and that the more he can improve the pass game, the more his running ability will open up opportunities.Praise for OkudahFollowing the 52-3 win over Rutgers, where the Buckeyes allowed only 11 completions on 30 attempts, and 65 yards through the air, Day had nothing but praise for sophomore cornerback Jeffrey Okudah.Okudah finished the game with two tackles, including one solo tackle, but Day said he is “one of the best kids you can be around,” and complemented his work ethic in practice.Day said that Okudah has really developed over the year, and that “he’s got a lot of great football ahead of him this year.” read more

Spain were the better team – Southgate

first_imgEngland coach Gareth Southgate has reflected on their 2-1 loss to Spain at Wembley and conceded they came up against a “tough test”.England scored the opener with a Marcus Rashford strike, but Spain came from behind to win the game 2-1 thanks to goals from Saul and Rodrigo.“They pressed us and we didn’t keep the ball well enough,” Southgate told Sky Sports, via Team Talk.“I have to give the players credit. We could have folded and disappeared. In the last 25 minutes, we came into the game and could have got a draw.“We are under no illusion that Spain were the better team for long periods. We are still at the early stages of what we want to do.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“They pressed well. It took us a while to work out where that was coming from and solutions to it. We are still finding our feet in playing out. We can go back to an old style but we will never be a top team. Or we stick with it and accept it won’t always work.“The system in Spain has produced some of the best midfielders in the world. We are a different profile of players who can’t play like they do. But we can move the ball. When we are match fitter we will function better up the pitch. It takes time. We have come a long way.“Today was a tough test in terms of pressing and a team who are so good in possession. We have to keep reviewing and looking at what we do. But we want to stick to the plan and get better at it.”last_img read more

For us, it was the best trophy you can win as a footballer,” said Pogba, according to the Evening Standard.“But we like challenges, too. We have goals.
