Gabriela Knutson and Miranda Ramirez lose in 2nd round of NCAA Tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments No. 8 Gabriela Knutson and Miranda Ramirez ended their season on Friday with a second round defeat against Oklahoma State’s No. 14 Vladica Babic and Sofia Blanco, 4-6, 7-5, 8-10. In a match filled with nine deuce points, numerous errand shots and a healthy dose of I-formations, the Orange could not hold on after forcing a super tiebreak.SU’s first doubles pairing opened the match up with three errors to drop the first point of the game. Babic commanded the net in the first couple of games, but her partner started to falter during serves. Blanco hit the net five times in the third game and faulted twice to give the Orange its first game of the match.The conclusion of the first set centered around deuce points. With four of the last seven games of the set resulting in a 40-all score, SU could not capitalize. At 40-40 at 2-2 and 3-3, associate head coach Shelley George implored Ramirez to get closer to the net, but the sophomore was outshined by Blanco with her 5-foot-11-inch frame up close to take both points.At 4-4, with Ramirez serving, the Orange started to play the I-formation. After consecutive failed serves, Ramirez elected to change strategies for the moment. With one of the deciding games on the line, Knutson attempted to recover a net cord that ultimately led her to fall onto one knee to go down 4-5. Down 15-40, Babic placed a forehand winner directly in the back left hand corner past the outstretched arms of Knutson, taking the first set.SU opened the second set similarly to the first by getting swept to start. An airmailed shot from Ramirez, which left the Leighton Family Court parameters, topped off the early deficit for the Orange. After the changeover, SU recovered to go up 2-1 on a cross court volley from Ramirez to go up a break.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKnutson clinched two straight games at 40-all to help SU level at 3-3 midway through the second set. As the set winded down, the Cowboys started to employ an I-formation of its own when Blanco served. Unlike the Orange, who only used it five times in the first 15 games of the match, OSU began to attempt it on almost every first serve. SU held strong though, fought off the tactics and forced a super tiebreak.Syracuse opened the super tiebreak firing, going up 5-1 at the first changeover. But it wouldn’t sustain. Eventually, OSU went on a run of its own to tie it at 6-6. After swapping the next four points, Babic ended SU’s season on two forehands to close out the match. Blanco and Babic screamed and embraced after the victory. Knutson and Ramirez walked off the court with their heads down in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.The loss ends the Orange’s season as it finished without a quarterfinals birth in all three NCAA tournaments — team, singles and doubles.center_img Published on May 25, 2018 at 4:30 pm Contact KJ: kjedelma@syr.edu | @KJEdelmanlast_img read more


Jose Mourinho Rules Out Zlatan Ibrahimovic Signing for Tottenham Hotspur

first_imgLondon: Jose Mourinho says there is “no chance” of Tottenham signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the veteran forward was linked with a move to the club following his exit from LA Galaxy.Mourinho worked with Ibrahimovic at Inter Milan and Manchester United but said signing the 38-year-old would not make sense with Harry Kane at his disposal. “You are right about the connection, we have more than a connection,” Mourinho said when asked on Monday whether he would be trying to sign the Swede.”I would say also passion and understanding, an amazing player and an amazing guy, but I would say ‘no’. No chance.”We have the best striker in England, we have one of the top two or three strikers in the world, it doesn’t make any sense for a striker of Zlatan’s dimension, obviously in his late 30s, but still a striker that can play in any club in the world.”It has been a hectic first week for Mourinho at the Spurs helm following his appointment last week.After his unveiling to the media on Thursday, he had his first game 48 hours later at West Ham, which Spurs won 3-2, and is now preparing for a Champions League clash with Olympiakos on Tuesday.Tottenham, who reached the Champions League final last season, would qualify for the knockout stages with a win or if they drew and Red Star failed to beat Bayern.Mourinho said he had not yet contacted his friend Mauricio Pochettino, who was sacked by Spurs last week.”I needed that little bit of space to process things when I left previous clubs,” said the former Chelsea and Manchester United boss. “It does not take just five or six days to be open again.”You take a little bit of time to process things and understand and to think and rethink. You speak with people and in a couple of weeks he will be fine and I will call him.”Part of Mourinho’s remit at Spurs is to do one thing that Pochettino could not do — win silverware.”I love the competition (Champions League) as much as everyone in football,” said Mourinho, who won the trophy with Porto and Inter Milan.”It’s something that everybody dreams about, to win it. Not everyone has the privilege to be a Champions League winner, which I was happy enough to do twice.”Do I want to win it a third time? Of course, I would love it but I know the difficulties of it.”But with these boys, I will never be afraid of any Champions League match that comes into our faces. I repeat, we need to qualify, that is the focus. I always say that.” Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

FRAMOS: ON Semi release X-Class CMOS image sensor platform devices

first_imgThe XGS 12000 and XGS 8000 devices in the new X-Class CMOS image sensor platform from ON Semiconductor provide 12.6 megapixel and 8.8 megapixel (4k UHD) global shutter imaging for machine vision, ITS, and, broadcast applications.  All ON Semiconductor image sensors and accessories are available from FRAMOS.The 1″ optical format XGS 12000 and the 1/1.1″ optical format XGS 8000 enable compact 29 x 29 mm² camera designs due to their small package size and low thermal profile. These devices provide superior image quality with high quantum efficiency, broad dynamic range, and, low dark noise and dark current.   A single camera design can support these first members of the X-Class image sensor platform.  In addition, other resolutions based on the 3.2 µm XGS pixel – and, additional X-Class products using different pixels – can be supported in the future.The XGS 12000 offers high-speed frame rates at 12-bit and up to 90fps at full resolution with a configurable HiSPi output covering three speed grades (24, 12, or 6 lanes). The XGS 8000 achieves up to 130fps at the same pixel depth. A companding mode at either 30fps with 6 lanes, or 60fps with 12 lanes is available for full resolution in the XGS 12000. Higher frame rates and more efficient image capture can be achieved with programmable control, for up to eight regions of interest (ROI). This impressive flexibility in the available speed grades allows tailored performance to specific application requirements.In addition to excellent image performance, the XGS 12000 and XGS 8000 leverage the low power X-Class output architecture, enabling energy efficient designs. This footprint compatible and scalable family simplifies both evaluation and integration support for short camera design times, and simplified logistics. Product sampling begins in the second quarter of 2018, with mass production scheduled for the third quarter.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous SECO becomes platinum member of Wind River Partner ProgramNext VadaTech: octal versatile wideband transceiver with UltraScale+ FPGAlast_img read more
