  • Free Concussion Baseline Testing in February

    first_imgThe St. Mary’s Sports Concussion Alliance is offering a baseline screening date for local athletes. These baseline tests and post-injury tests are computerized assessments that measure Reaction Time, Memory Capacity, Speed of Mental Processing, and Executive Functioning of the brain. They also record baseline concussion symptoms and provide extensive information about the athlete’s history with concussions. It is recommended that baseline ImPACT testing begin at the age of 10. These scores can help determine when an athlete is ready to return to normal activities. By receiving a pre-concussion test, a baseline cognitive function can be established. Results can be compared to a post-concussion test later if the athlete suffers a head injury. This test lasts about thirty minutes.A concussion is a brain injury. Concussions are a serious matter and can occur in any sport or recreational activity. Even a minor bump or blow to the head can be serious. Signs and symptoms of a concussion can show up immediately or may show up some time after the injury occurs.St. Mary’s Center for Advanced MedicineFourth Floor, Computer Lab 4 & 5901 St. Mary’s Drive, Evansville, INFREESaturday, February 18Testing every 30 minutes from 7:30 a.m. to Noon.Slots are limited.

  • FA Cup: Arsenal ease past Portsmouth, book quarter-final ticket

    first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal Arsenal secured safe passage into the sixth round of the FA Cup as they overcame a spirited Portsmouth side at a raucous Fratton Park. The Sky Bet League One hosts are unbeaten at home in the league this season and more than played their part in an entertaining cup tie, with the Gunners eventually running out 2-0 winners. Kenny Jackett’s side had the better of the first half, only for Sokratis Papastathopoulos to brilliantly volley Arsenal ahead, with Eddie Nketiah doubling the lead soon after the break. For Arsenal and head coach Mikel Arteta, who made nine changes, including resting captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, this was a good response to crashing out of the Europa League. Arsenal’s somewhat slow start was not helped when Lucas Torreira was floored by a strong challenge from James Bolton, which resulted in the midfielder being taken off on a stretcher to be replaced by Dani Ceballos. The Gunners finally forced Alex Bass into action as Bukayo Saka burst forward down the left and shot low at the Pompey goalkeeper before Harness had a curling effort deflected behind at the other end. Gareth Evans spurned the best chance of the game just before the half-hour mark, miscuing a header having steamed into the box to meet Steve Seddon’s cross following a quick free-kick. It was Arsenal’s turn to bemoan a missed header as Gabriel Martinelli could only steer Reiss Nelson’s flashed cross over from close-range as the first-half looked set to end goalless. That changed in the fourth minute of added-on time as an Arsenal corner was cleared to Ceballos, who played in Nelson to cross for Sokratis to turn home with a fine volley. Arsenal were much faster out of the traps for the second half and doubled their advantage soon after the restart, Nketiah finishing well from close-range following another Nelson centre. England Under-21 international Nelson was enjoying himself and broke through to see a shot blocked behind before Saka had a strike tipped over with the visitors in complete control of proceedings. They could not add to their lead, Andy Cannon coming closest as Portsmouth searched for a consolation at the other end in the closing stages. With the strength of the opposition still left in the cup it is unlikely Arteta will be afforded the luxury of making sweeping changes next time out and, for Portsmouth and Jackett, focus can now shift back to their League One promotion bid.Tags: ArsenalEddie NketiahFA CupMikel ArtetaPortsmouthlast_img read more

  • 3 things Jim Boeheim said at Syracuse men’s basketball media day

    first_img Published on October 21, 2016 at 7:12 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Syracuse held its annual media day on Friday afternoon and head coach Jim Boeheim kicked off the day with his season-opening press conference. The Orange welcomes three transfers — Andrew White, John Gillon and Paschal Chukwu — as well as freshmen Tyus Battle, Taurean Thompson and Matthew Moyer. They join a group that returns Tyler Lydon, Tyler Roberson, Dajuan Coleman and Frank Howard from its Final Four team in 2015-16.Here are three things Boeheim said ahead of his 41st season.Boeheim is open to discussing players sitting for the national anthemSeveral athletes across the country have been sitting or kneeling during the national anthem in recent weeks. Following the lead of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, players are using the action to protest against police brutality. The controversy has swept across the nation as some argue the action is disrespectful to American soldiers in the military.Boeheim said he hasn’t spoken with his team about the topic but plans to.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’ve always been a believer in if you want to do something, do it,” Boeheim said.But he added that he personally isn’t “a protest guy.” Boeheim cited Team USA’s forum with community members in Los Angeles as more productive than simply not standing during the national anthem.“I’ve always believed you stand for the national anthem, that’s important. When I do that, I think about the soldiers who serve our country. I just look at it that way,” Boeheim said. “But everybody’s got their own way of protesting something and drawing attention to something and I’m not gonna criticize anybody for doing that and our players are welcome to talk about it.”Syracuse’s depth allows for flexibilityBoeheim said he can’t remember a year where five new players received significant playing time. With White, Gillon, Chukwu, Battle and Thompson, the Orange could consistently play nine or 10 players, Boeheim said. Moyer has missed time throughout the preseason nursing a foot injury but has gained ground in the past couple days.With depth, Syracuse could push the pace of the game and press more since it has players to sub in. Boeheim said teams are built to beat presses and using just seven players makes it impossible to press successfully. Having the option is something he hasn’t had in recent years.“That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work, but we will do some more things,” Boeheim said. “It’s going to take a while to fit all those things together. When I spoke in the summer, I said we have more depth, which is true and we have people at every position, a couple guys at every position, which we haven’t had in a long time.”Boeheim doesn’t like the fifth-year transfer rule, but is taking advantage of itFollowing Malachi Richardson’s decision to leave for the NBA, Syracuse dipped into the transfer market to pick up White and Gillon. Had Richardson stayed, Boeheim said, Syracuse probably would have stayed with the eight scholarship players it had. Since White and Gillon both have a fifth year of eligibility, they could transfer without sitting out a year. It’s a rule Boeheim said he doesn’t like but was able to take advantage of in order to help the Orange.The rule, he said, is here to stay and that over 100 players transferred as fifth-years in the offseason. Since the transfer market doesn’t open up until the offseason, Boeheim said it’s too late in the year to pick up an incoming freshman who would legitimately help the team. He doesn’t have much of a history taking transfers, but ones he does take usually have an impact.“We certainly helped our team with Johnny and with Andrew so that’s what we’re looking to do,” Boeheim said. “It’s not something we would always do. It’s something you do in certain circumstances.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

  • Dzeko one Step from the Transfer, Chelsea and Roma agreed on the Price

    first_imgThe captain of the national football team of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and Roma striker, Edin Dzeko, has been actively linked with the transfer to London’s “Chelsea” for seven days, and the his fate, according to the Italian media, should be known in the next 24 hours.“Tuttomercatoweb” reports that Dzeko will be left out of the Roma starting lineup for the match with Sampdoria on Wednesday, adding that Radja Nainggolan, Patrik Schick and Gregoire Defrel will be the strikers.Eusebio Di Francesco, the Roma coach said on the Tuesday’s press conference that everyone counts on the best striker of Serie A from the last season, and that he will be part of the starting lineup for the match in the third round of Italian Cup, unless the situation with his transfer does not change until then.Renowned Gianluca Di Marzio has revealed yesterday that Chelsea and Roma have agreed on the price of a 50 million (plus ten million in bonuses) for the transfer of Emerson Palmieri and Edin Dzeko, and adds that the only thing left is that the BH striker agrees with the London club about the conditions, which the Brazilian player has already done.The biggest problem in negotiations between the two sides can be the fact that Chelsea has not signed up contracts in duration of several years with players older than 30 in the past, including legends like Lampard, Drogba and Terry, but some English media have said that Dzeko could get a two-year contract who will connect him to the club by 2020, which he would agree to.It should be noted that Chelsea has tried to bring Dzeko to its team in the past, more precisely at the time when Jose Mourinho was Chelsea’s manager, and Edin player of the Manchester City, but there was no final agreement among them at the end.Besides Dzeko, who is currently really close to getting Chelsea jersey, England’s current Champion showed interest for Ashley Barnes from Burnley, Marko Arnautovic from West Ham, and the English media went so far that they even connected Peter Crouch with the club from Stamford Bridge.What was known earlier, the first potential candidate of Roman Abramovich was the West Ham’s striker, Andy Carrol, whom Conte did not want in his team, and because of the new injury, the Englishman was not an option for a potential reinforcement anymore.
