The Frogs dominated possession all night long and didn’t allow Kansas any scoring opportunities until late in the match. Bell praised his team for their efforts following the match.“I thought we played awesome,” Bell said. “We created a lot of scoring opportunities and had the ball for a large share of the game. Our defending was spot on and they didn’t have a lot of chances. Overall, it was a great performance in all three phases of the game.”Smith praised the crowd following the match, applauding their loud support on the night and for the entire season.“They’re always loud and energetic and that helped us out tonight,” Smith said.With the win, TCU is now 5-1 at home, the only loss coming to the hands of Northeastern. The game was the second overtime game the Frogs have played in this season, improving to 2-0. The game was TCU’s second consecutive shutout and fourth of the season.The Frogs will continue their three-game homestead as they face Kansas State, the Big 12’s newest member, Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina.

An 81st minute foul by first-year defender Tijana Djuricek awarded Kansas a free kick that found an opening in the defense and an open goal, but a quick reaction by first-year defender Ariana Owens sliding in front of the goal saved the game for the Frogs.“Kansas is a pretty resilient group,” Bell said. “After that red card, they hunkered down and held us, fought and battled. Their goalkeeper made some great saves to keep them in it, so credit to them.”The first overtime period didn’t prove to be any different from regulation play. A majority of the 10 minutes in the period were played in the TCU attacking third, but the Frogs couldn’t convert.The strong attack for the entire night finally paid off for the Frogs. In the 106th minute, Smith scored her second goal of the season and second-career goal, both of which have been game-winners. She ripped the ball from just inside the box into the upper corner of the net.

I was very pleased with the entire performance over the entire game.The first half began with back-and-forth action as neither team was able to generate a quality scoring chance until the 11th minute of the game. A pass from sophomore goalkeeper Katie Lund made its way into junior midfielder McKenzie Oliver’s lap, immediately turning on the jets and blowing by two Jayhawks defenders. Oliver’s cross into the box to senior forward Emma Heckendorn was right on target, but Heckendorn’s shot soared over the crossbar.The Frogs continued to amp up the pressure as the half progressed. The best scoring chance in the first half for the Frogs came in the 25th minute. Heckendorn drove into the box and passed the ball out to freshman midfielder Yazmeen Ryan who ripped the shot to goal, but an incredible diving save by Kansas’ senior goalkeeper Maddie Dobyns shocked the crowd in what seemed to be a guaranteed goal.The first half ended in a 0-0 tie but TCU dominated and determined play for a majority of the half, outshooting the Jayhawks 11 to three with five corners in the half.The Horned Frogs maintained the pressure from the first half through the break and into the second period. In the 64th minute, the Jayhawks were forced with a tough task to overcome. A major head-to-head collision at midfield between Kansas’ senior midfielder Hannah Lukinac and junior midfielder Karitas Tomasdottir resulted in a red card and ejection for Lukinac. During the most pivotal point in the match, Kansas were forced to complete the match down a player.

Georgetown couldn’t make its desperation heave, and the buzzer sounded.Syracuse (7-2) got off to a miserable start against Georgetown (7-2) on Saturday in the Carrier Dome. But the Orange roared back to start in the second half, taking the lead for much of the frame. In the end, SU beat the Hoyas, 72-71.Here are some takeaways from Saturday’s game.Atrocious startSyracuse’s season-high in 3-pointers attempted was the 28 it attempted against Oregon. In the first half against the Hoyas, SU attempted 14. The Orange made just one from beyond the arc, though.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse shot better from inside the arc in the first half, making 6-of-14 from 2-point range, but that still culminated in just 7-for-28 (25 percent) from the field in the first 20 minutes. After two points on Tuesday against Northeastern, Battle didn’t heat up early against Georgetown, making 1-of-8 shots in the first half.Coming aliveIt seemed like nothing would fall for Syracuse. That changed in the second half. In the first four minutes after the break, Battle scored 10 points. He hit a three from the left corner, finished twice near the rim and made three free throws. His ninth and 10th points forced a Hoyas timeout with the Orange having gone on a 14-4 run to start the second period to get within three.Georgetown found answers a few times, courtesy of Jessie Govan hook shots. But then Oshae Brissett drained a three from the left corner to get the Orange within two. The Carrier Dome rocked as loud as it had all day.Syracuse kept making shots. Battle kept scoring. Elijah Hughes hit multiple threes. What was a double-digit deficit at halftime ballooned to a six point Orange lead at one point in the second period.Magic MacMinutes before Saturday’s game started, a Syracuse student said “Mac McClung can’t shoot.” The 6-foot-2 Georgetown freshman is well known on social media for his dunks. Another student responded simply, saying “That’s a fact.”But the first points of the game came courtesy of a McClung three. He kept shooting, going 5-for-13 and 2-for-8 from deep in the first half. That meant a game-high 13 points at the break, including one layup where he sliced through the entire Syracuse zone before finishing a circus shot inside with his right hand.McClung slowed in the second half, as Greg Malinowski got hot on the wing instead to the tune of 11 of his own points.Not much in reserveJim Boeheim tried all sorts of lineup combinations in the first half against Georgetown, including one of Jalen Carey, Buddy Boeheim, Battle, Marek Dolezaj and Bourama Sidibe which hadn’t been seen yet this season. Carey and Buddy both played long stretches of minutes, as it seemed Boeheim was looking for some sort of spark.But no such spark came. The Orange got just four points in the first half from their bench.In the second half, Frank Howard picked up two more fouls very early on to get to four. That meant Carey had to play big minutes for much of the game from then on. A few minutes later, Carey led a fast break to set up a Brissett lay up with a bounce pass, and also used a sharp spin move to create space before dumping off to Paschal Chukwu for a lay-in.Carey contributed more than 10-consecutive second-half minutes. And then Howard fouled out with 3:57 to go and Carey played the rest of the way. He stepped up on back-to-back trips inside three minutes, first hitting a step back three from the left corner late in the shot clock, and then swatting a corner shot at the other end.

The Selkirk College Saints opened the 2016-2017 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) regular season with a slight stumble, but nobody said the quest for a fifth straight league title would be easy.Coming into the regular season as the four-time defending league champions, the Saints home opener Saturday night featured an entertaining game against the Simon Fraser University Clan.A pair of powerplay goals and stellar goaltending by Jordan Liem helped the Clan escape the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex with a 3-2 victory.“It’s a learning experience, by no means am I devastated by the loss,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven.“Last season we got off to slow start and then we had a lot of success in the second half. It’s a process and we are building towards an end goal, that goal doesn’t change because we lose one game.”After raising the banner to the rafters of the Castlegar arena pre-game, the Saints got off to a slow start. Simon Fraser controlled play for the first 10 minutes of the opening frame, before the Saints found their edge. A hard hitting first period ended with both Saints’ starter Brett Huber and Clan goaltender Liem keeping the puck out of the net.Simon Fraser opened the scoring four minutes into the middle frame when Mitch Crisanti scored on the powerplay. A minute later, a sloppy breakout by the Saints resulted in an Adam Callegari goal and a 2-0 Clan lead.Veteran Saints forward Alex Milligan gave the supportive home crowd something to cheer about with less than a minute remaining in the second period when he put away a rebound to cut the lead to 2-1.Saints assistant captain Ryan Edwards tied the score early in the third period when his blast from the point on the powerplay found the back of the Simon Fraser net. Four minutes into final period, the Clan struck again on the powerplay when Brendan Lamont stuffed a rebound past Huber.The Saints pressed, firing 12 third period shots on Liem but could not get the equalizer.“When they have seven opportunities to score with the man advantage, it’s tough to win those games,” says Heaven about the penalty problems that hampered the Saints in the opener.“You have to play a bit more disciplined to have good success in this league.”The Saints outshot the Clan 37-31 in the game.The Selkirk College team will now hit the road for two straight weekends where they will get a look at Trinity Western University, the University of Victoria and a rematch against Simon Fraser.They return home on October 28 for a game against U.S. rival Eastern Washington University.

Cattle and deer seem to align themselves to magnetic north. German and Czech scientists, reporting in PNAS,1 used aerial observations to detect the tendency of grazing herds to line up in north-south directions. The alignment was to magnetic north, not true north—indicating a sensitivity to earth’s magnetic field, as known to exist in migrating birds, lobsters and sea turtles (03/23/2004). They did not have an explanation for this apparent sixth sense in mammals, but remarked that “It is amazing that this ubiquitous conspicuous phenomenon apparently has remained unnoticed by herdsmen and hunters for thousands of years.” They speculated that it might be involved in predator avoidance or some physiological function such as temperature regulation. The correlation may just be a statistical fluke. About two-thirds of the herd members appeared to line up on a magnetic north-south orientation. If established, “Our findings open horizons for the study of magnetoreception in general and are of potential significance for applied ethology (husbandry, animal welfare),” the authors said. “They challenge neuroscientists and biophysics to explain the proximate mechanisms.” The BBC News also reported the story. PhysOrg asked whether this “surprising discovery” of a magnetic sense might also be detected in humans – at least those who follow the herd.1. Begall et al, “Magnetic alignment in grazing and resting cattle and deer,” Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences USA, published online 08/25/2008, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0803650105.What this means is that you will have a statistically better chance of getting your buck trophy if you look east or west.
