Kadiatou Sissoko out 3 to 5 weeks after ‘minor procedure’ on right knee

first_img Published on December 2, 2018 at 5:53 pm Contact Eric: erblack@syr.edu | @esblack34 Facebook Twitter Google+ Syracuse freshman guard Kadiatou Sissoko will be out 3-5 weeks after having surgery on her right meniscus, SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said Sunday after Syracuse’s 98-55 win over Towson. “She had a minor procedure on her knee,” Hillsman said. “It’s one of those things where it’s easier to get it cleaned up now than let it linger on.”The Paris, France native was averaging 4.8 points and 2.6 rebounds a game in the Orange’s first five games before injuring her knee against Princeton on Nov. 23. Against the Tigers, Sissoko played just one minute and scored three points before twisting her knee and exiting the contest.As Syracuse’s fourth player off the bench, she had the ability to be swapped in for a guard or a forward because of her 6-foot-2 frame. Sissoko thrived specifically at the top of SU’s full-court press, where she was usually stationed, and used her length to wreak havoc on opposing guards.In her absence, Gabrielle Cooper has filled in the top position of the press, which she played last season. Hillsman praised her play in the zone against Towson on Sunday, a game in which she was responsible for four of Syracuse’s 18 turnovers.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHillsman said that Sissoko is “up and moving around” and doing well following the procedure. He explained that the Orange hope to get her back on the court later in the season.“We miss her length and her size, her athleticism,” Hillsman said, “so when we get her back we’ll be a better team.” Commentslast_img read more

Arnold Palmer Invitational: Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka added to stacked field

first_imgThe 44-time PGA Tour champion hasn’t played in the tournament since 2013, and his addition could mean an absence in the following week at the Players Championship. Mickelson said he may skip the tour’s flagship event, according to Golf Digest.He already admitted he would be taking it easier, especially on courses that have thick rough similar to The Champion Golf Course, where this week’s Honda Classic will be played.”I’m 48. I’m not going to play tournaments with rough like that anymore, it’s a waste of my time,” Mickelson said in January. “I’m going to play courses that are playable and that I can play aggressive, attacking, make a lot of birdies, style of golf I like to play.” The annual event held at The Bay Hill Club and Lodge already has seen commitments from eight-time winner Tiger Woods — who announced recently he would forgo the Honda Classic for the API — defending champion Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Bryson DeChambeau​.But, the addition of Mickelson is a surprising one.  Related News 2019 Masters updated betting odds: Dustin Johnson new favorite after win at WGC-Mexico Championship Tiger Woods to skip Honda Classic, play Arnold Palmer Invitationalcenter_img Mickelson won the API in 1997.The invitational will begin Thursday, Mar. 7.

The Carndonagh defence worked very hard in the first half, turning over a lot of ball with some great defending with Daragh Browne standing out. The half forwards along with Midfield gave great support to the defence when looking for an outlet for the ball, which resulted in some good scores in the first half. Carn finished the half well with a good lead. Jamie Mc Laughlin and Conor Doherty came on for Carn and were not long in settling into the game. Carn kept the tempo up with some good work throughout the field; there were some nice passages of play, which led to some fine scores in the second half. Luke McLaughlin, Roy Davidson and Cathal McCallion all came on for Carn to bring fresh legs to the team, with all contributing well to the game. Carn went on to win this game well in the end with solid displays from Daragh Browne Conor McCormack and Mathew McLaughlin.Carndonagh: Fergal Bradley, Daragh Browne, Fergal Doherty, Ronan Hartin, Jamie Lee Loftus, Cathal Kelly (Capt.).Christopher Doherty, Declan Donaghy, Conor Mc Cormac, Christopher McCormac, Mathew McLaughlin, Nathan Toland, Liam Fox, Thomas O’Sullivan, Mark Diver, Subs.

Housing Outlook—Where Is the Market Headed in 2019

first_img 2019 Housing Market Affordability Metro National Association of Realtors Realtor.com 2019-05-20 Mike Albanese Speakers at the 2019 REALTORS Legislative Meetings and Trade Expo voiced strong expectations for the remainder of 2019, including continued economic expansion, rising home sales, and an increase in wages that are on par with the growth of home prices.Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors, predicted changing future migration patterns in his 2019 midyear forecast, adding buyers search for more affordable markets. The report states inventory in the U.S. has grown for eight-consecutive months on a year-over-year basis, which Yun expects to continue.Diverting from the recent trend, wage growth and home price growth are more closely aligned as average hourly wages continue to grow.”With strong job creation, wages are growing at a faster pace. Finally, wages and home prices are aligning,” Yun said. “This is good news for employees.”Yun added that this shift is a healthy development toward keeping housing affordability stable.Price differences in the metro markets could cause a shift in relocation, as people and companies will seek more affordable regions of the country, Yun said.”While affordability has been sliding, it is still better than we saw in the year 2000. This is due to much lower mortgage interest rates today,” Yun said.A report earlier this month from realtor.com found that while home prices in suburban areas have increased 57.3% since 2013, they pale in comparison to the 93.4% increase found within major cities.”As more people look to the suburbs for affordability, homes are harder to find there, too,” said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor.com. “Buyers not willing to go farther out may have to make other trade-offs such as accepting a smaller home or buying a home in need of renovation.”Hale said at the Expo that year-over-year inventory growth will be moderate nationwide, and the company has been listing prices up 6.9% year-over-year in April.”We used to see home price growth only around the coasts, but now we’re seeing it throughout the country. Nationwide there are not enough affordable homes on the market, and those numbers have been declining,” Hale said. Housing Outlook—Where Is the Market Headed in 2019?
