Short-handed Orange roster may become even thinner this weekend

first_img Published on October 31, 2013 at 1:10 am Contact Ryan: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Every week during practice, Syracuse assistant coach Erin Little literally must work as a coach on the court.Due to Syracuse only having 11 players it uses on the roster, Little, who played at SU from 2008-11, must practice with the team every day just so it can run six-on-six scrimmages during practice.But as Syracuse heads on the road this weekend to take on No. 18 Duke (18-3, 9-1 Atlantic Coast) on Friday at 6:30 p.m. and Wake Forest (14-8, 3-7) on Saturday at 6:30, its already small roster may be shrinking. Gosia Wlaszczuk did not play last weekend, although she practiced Tuesday and dressed for SU’s (10-12, 5-5) victory over Clemson on Sunday. Redshirt freshman Valeriya Shaipova, who has played a key role in the Orange’s recent victories, left the court on crutches Tuesday after it appeared her knee gave out at the end of practice.While the Orange travels south with a short-sided bench, its opponents, the Blue Devils and the Demon Deacons, have 15 and 12 players, respectively.“I know it is unfortunate when we have injuries, we don’t really have a lot of subs,” redshirt junior captain Lindsay McCabe said. “But again, the benefit of having a small team is that we’re all really close.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We’re all used to playing with each other. Everyone’s a contributor so that always builds good team morale.”Having a smaller team limits some of the things the team can do in practice, as evidenced by Little, a coach needing to practice with her players.Teams such as No. 2 Penn State, which has 19 players on its roster, have the advantage of being able to do more in practice. Teams with larger roster sizes cannot only do six-on-six scrimmages without the coaches, but also more positional specific drills that improve techniques specific to position, Little said.Having a large roster size can slow a young player’s development, though. On game days, many players never get to see the court. This can be hard when younger players begin to get starting opportunities when they are older, but have not had much match experience.“When you have a larger team, a lot of the girls are on the bench,” Little said. “They don’t get to see as much playing time, and it’s hard that way.”Little, who also has experience playing with small rosters and large roster sizes, believes as a coach she can better develop her players with a smaller team.“With a small roster, you know you can keep it, the group tight,” Little said. “You can work more in depth with players. So like rather than having to focus on 18, you can focus on just the 11, focus on getting them better.”Although several players on the team said that they enjoy the small roster, many would argue that teams like Penn State have had so much success with a larger roster size for a reason.For sophomore Silvi Uattara, however, she does not believe that the team would improve if it had more players.“Our team is small but we’re all really close and really good friends,” Uattara said. “I don’t think that if we had more players on the roster we would be better.” Commentslast_img read more

A Malachi Richardson impostor spent a day fooling everybody: ‘I got catfished in person’

first_imgIn every way it was Malachi Richardson, except it wasn’t. The two pierced ears. A somewhat scraggly high-top fade haircut. The “Always Reppin’” shirt with the orange block “S” that Syracuse wore during warmups in the NCAA Tournament. And a face that, for someone not entirely familiar with the looks of the former Syracuse standout, could easily be mistaken for Richardson’s.For all intents and purposes, he’ll be referred to as the impostor. He rode a commercial flight early Saturday morning from Syracuse’s Hancock International Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport, where he stopped for pictures, videos and autographs before hopping on a plane to Florida. Two 20-year-olds from central New York, Dustin DuBrule and Sean Loveless, rode both flights with the impostor and fell victim to his charade. DuBrule posted his photo with the impostor shortly after 11 a.m. on Saturday, but it didn’t start circulating until late Sunday night, when Loveless tweeted at Richardson to clarify that he had in fact been duped the day before.“A normal person would be like, ‘It’s not me, but thanks,’ or just says, like, ‘I look like him,’” Loveless said. “I am pissed off … I just have a random picture with somebody who I don’t know who he is.”The impostor still remains nameless as of late Sunday night to the two 20-year-olds, most likely along with everyone else fooled throughout the day on Saturday.And while the real Malachi Richardson could see his name grow in popularity over the next month, another Malachi Richardson could be reveling in the humor of his stunt somewhere in Florida’s warm summer while remaining a mystery.“I got catfished in person,” Loveless said. “Like who gets catfished in person? And then I did.” Comments Related Stories Malachi Richardson reportedly signs with agent, officially ending his college careerHow Michael Gbinije and Malachi Richardson fared at the NBA Draft Combine on Thursday Malachi Richardson was on my plane tho— Dustin DuBrule (@DustinDuBrule) May 21, 2016AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe impostor signed DuBrule’s basketball and told him that he didn’t care which NBA team selected him in the upcoming draft, just that he wanted to be taken. He posed for a picture with Loveless, who waited to approach the impostor until the crowd of around 10 people surrounding him in the tunnel leading from the plane to the gate dissipated.  He even obliged to the request of a stewardess on the first flight, who asked that the impostor send a message to her son in a video.“He really woke up in the morning like, ‘I’m trying to be Malachi Richardson today,’” DuBrule said in a phone interview Sunday night. Published on May 23, 2016 at 2:06 am Contact Matt: [email protected] | @matt_schneidman When the impostor boarded the flight from Syracuse to Newark around 5 a.m. on Saturday, passengers mumbled amongst each other that a recognizable face had joined them. Loveless resisted the urge to approach him immediately and like other passengers on the flight, waited until the plane landed in New Jersey around 7 a.m. to ask for favors.After the impostor’s fellow passengers finished crowding around him, other bystanders in the airport began flocking toward the Richardson lookalike. He never swayed from character, even taking a video with a mom and her son while advising the son to stay in school.Richardson, of course, didn’t heed the impostor’s advice and will instead hope to hear his name called in the first round of this year’s NBA Draft after foregoing his final three years of eligibility at SU.That, in part, is what made the actual Malachi Richardson’s presence on the flight more believable.“He’s still the type of person where he’s humble because he doesn’t have all that money to own his own jet yet and he still has to drive and fly commercial,” Loveless said.This wasn’t an isolated instance where a well-known figure’s doppelganger jokes around with one person and pretends to be someone more famous than themselves. This was intentional, effectively scripted from head to toe, fooling masses of people in Richardson’s own home state about an hour’s car ride from his hometown of Trenton, New Jersey.
