A proper send off

first_imgWisconsin Badgers seniors (l-r) Keaton Nankivil, Brett Valentyn, Jon Leuer, Wquinton Smith, Tim Jarmusz and J.P. Gavinski were honored after they helped knock off the Northwestern Wildcats Sunday.[/media-credit]Against the Northwestern Wildcats Sunday evening, seniors scored the Wisconsin Badgers’ first seven points. Senior forwards Jon Leuer and Tim Jarmusz led UW with six rebounds, while Leuer led all scorers with 26 points.All in all, Wisconsin’s Senior Day performance was fitting.“I think we did a good job of putting all the pregame emotion stuff behind us and taking care of business and then letting the ceremony take place afterwards,” said UW senior forward Keaton Nankivil. “It’s a pretty incredible feeling, just all the thanks you want to give to people.”Following the Badgers’ (22-6, 12-4) 78-63 victory, UW’s six seniors were honored with a video tribute on the Kohl Center scoreboard. Prior to that, once it was clear the Wildcats’ (16-12, 6-11) second-half rally would fall short, Badgers head coach Bo Ryan shuffled his lineup to get all six on the court.The move was, not surprisingly, met by thunderous applause. For the seniors, though, it might take some time to absorb the fact they have played their last game on the Kohl Center floor.“It hasn’t really set in, I don’t think, for me,” Leuer said. “I definitely have a lot of emotions going. It’s just been an unbelievable four years here at the Kohl Center. I’m definitely going to miss it; every gameday, lacing ’em up and going out there in front of our fans and our family members. It was definitely a good way to go out and get the win, celebrate with our families and friends after.”Leuer was the star Sunday – and not just among Wisconsin’s seniors. Along with his game-high 26 points and six rebounds, Leuer showed renewed aggressiveness around the hoop and in the paint. He shot 9-14 from the field and 8-11 from the free throw line.“I thought our guys did a good job, especially Jon, of scoring in the post,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “He didn’t rush things.”Nankivil was second in scoring for UW, contributing 15 points on 6-9 shooting (2-4 from three-point range) and four rebounds. Jarmusz, along with his six rebounds, also contributed six points on 2-3 shooting, all from behind the arc.The three remaining seniors combined for just three points, all of which came from guard Wquinton Smith on one shot. Guard Brett Valentyn received four minutes of playing time and center J.P. Gavinski was on the court for less than one, but the Badgers were quick to point out the most significant aspect of the night – as it has been in all 15 home games this season and 19 in a row dating back to last season, UW was victorious at the Kohl Center.“We just know with that crowd behind us, with Badger fans behind us, that when we’re at the Kohl Center, we don’t plan on losing – ever,” Leuer said. “This team did that this year. One of our goals we had was to always protect our home court, and we were able to do that. Check that one off the list.”In Ryan’s mind, though, talk of his team’s home play never focused on the streak.“Our guys are very well-educated; they can read,” he said. “They listen to their classmates; they know what’s going on. We’ve never talked about a streak.”last_img read more

(Photo by Steven Branscombe/Getty Images)Things were not looking good for Nebraska entering Saturday’s game against undefeated Michigan State. The Huskers were 3-6, with a few of the worst losses of the season, and some were already calling for first year Nebraska coach Mike Riley’s job. Many of those fans are probably a bit higher on him today. Nebraska won a dramatic game, knocking the Spartans from the ranks of the unbeaten, and today, the Huskers’ Twitter account dropped a cool quick video recapping the night in Lincoln.These fans. Our house. Unreal atmosphere.

NDP financial troubles continue as party reports raising less than 5M in

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal New Democrats pulled in less money this year than last, as newly released financial documents show the party raised just under $5 million dollars in 2017.The NDP’s annual fundraising returns posted to the Elections Canada website today show the party pulled in $4.86 million from 39,053 donors.In 2016, the NDP raised $5.39 million from 26,754 contributors one year after hauling in $18.59 million from 118,777 donors in 2015.The elections watchdog gave the party a filing extension that meant the NDP’s annual return is being made public two months after their federal rivals.The New Democrats have had a tough time establishing an campaign war chest that measures up to the Tories or the Liberals ever since the 2015 federal election when the party plummeted into debt.The years that followed have seen major expenses, including a federal leadership race and national conventions.The annual reports show the Tories raised $18.84 million from 94,786 contributors in 2017, outflanking the Liberals by nearly $5 million.last_img read more
