Women of Troy fall victim to poor play, conditions

first_imgThe No. 5 USC women’s golf team struggled through two days of wind, rain and 40-degree temperatures on its way to a 12th place finish at the Wildcat Invitational at the Arizona National Golf Club in Tucson, Ariz.The Women of Troy finished at 50-over-par 618 (308-310), 42 strokes behind No. 3 Arizona State. The finish is their second worst of the year, after the 16th place finish at the UNCW Fall Preview in October.For that tournament, the Women of Troy were missing No. 1 golfer sophomore Jennifer Song and lost senior Belen Mozo in the final round to injury. This week, the team had its lineup at full strength but struggled in conditions so poor the tournament was forced to cancel the second round of play.The break in action and the poor conditions wreaked havoc on scores across the board, as Arizona State’s winning combined score was an 8-over-par 576. Second place and host team Arizona recorded two rounds of 10-over-par to finish 12 strokes back of the Sun Devils at its own event.Not even the No. 2 team in the nation, the Auburn Tigers, could handle the conditions, finishing a combined 37-over-par.Mozo finished as the team’s low scorer for the week at eight-over-par 150 (77-73). Mozo, seeking her team-record fourth All-American award this year, balanced her four bogeys with two birdies to have the lowest round of the tournament for any of the Women of Troy. Mozo finished tied for 22nd, 16 places up from her finish in the first round.Song had her worst finish of the season with a tie for 40th at 12-over-par 154 (74-80). Her final round, which was marred by three double bogeys, is the first time Song has not scored below 80 in her USC career.Junior Lizette Salas, seeking a third All-American award this season, finished tied for 53rd at 15-over-par 157 (79-78). Two birdies in the final round were not enough to overcome five bogeys and two double bogeys.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson says team’s offense this year will be ‘totally different’

first_imgRavens coach John Harbaugh made headlines earlier this week by suggesting Jackson might run the ball more than 139 times in 2019, but Jackson countered that notion Thursday on “The Rich Eisen Show.”“Absolutely. I put on weight,” Jackson said (via ESPN.com) when asked if he could replicate the last season’s rushing production. “But I don’t think I’ll be running as much as I did last year. There were a lot of (run-pass options) and a lot of sudden changes in last year’s game. This will be totally different.” Related News Andrew Luck injury update: Colts QB (calf) remains off field but is ‘getting some work’ Jackson declined to go into detail about Baltimore’s new-and-improved offensive approach though.“I can’t talk about it,” Jackson said. “Each and every day we’re looking better and better in what we’re doing, whether it’s RPO, running the ball with our backs, or the pass game, it’s all looking incredible right now. But you’re going to have to see when it’s game time. Practice is going to be practice; games are going to be games.”Should we “take the over” on @Lj_era8 rushing attempts this #NFL season, like John Harbaugh suggested?The @Ravens QB wasn’t exactly giving away the game plan: pic.twitter.com/r0TZnV6uAH— Rich Eisen Show (@RichEisenShow) August 1, 2019Jackson has completed 99 of his 170 career NFL passing attempts for 1,201 yards and six touchdowns with three interceptions. It’s safe to say that the Ravens will try to even things out and monitor the volume of his rushes moving forward, as he was among the league leaders in fumbles (12) in 2018. He fumbled in nine games last season.”I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised that Lamar is not going to be running 20 times a game,” Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said in May. “That’s not what this offense is about.” It appears Baltimore could have some serious changes on the way offensively, according second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson.Jackson, 22, set a single-season NFL record for quarterback rushing attempts last year, with 147. He reached that mark despite starting only seven games as a rookie (though he played in all 16).center_img Broncos’ Drew Lock calls debut against Falcons a ‘learning game’ Baltmiore traded Joe Flacco to the Broncos to make room for Jackson to shine and added Mark Ingram to the backfield this offseason. It also signed star safety Earl Thomas to a four-year deal to bolster its defense.Jackson adding a new dimension to his game could help the Ravens win the AFC North for a second consecutive season and push them deeper into the playoffs.
