Odemwingie lays into Baggies

first_img Odemwingie delivered a series of Twitter rants against the club after having a transfer request rejected at the start of the year, and he has once again vented his frustration after being omitted from the Baggies’ starting line-up for the last four games. He tweeted on Sunday: “Keeping me on the bench now is worst than what they did on the 31st. New advisers told me to take say its all my fault cos its better or me. If they like they shouldn’t even give me 10 mins to play. Threatening to ruin my career? Career I closed already last summer? No harm to me. Want to treat me like an average player. The abuse and praise I get is it average ? So get some extra from me too.” The 31-year-old striker had been a target of QPR throughout January and had repeatedly voiced his displeasure at not being allowed to leave. Odemwingie then memorably turned up at Loftus Road without permission on transfer deadline day only to be left in the cold as his planned move to QPR collapsed, an act described by Baggies head coach Steve Clarke as “total lunacy”. The Nigeria international last month apologised for his actions during that period and also accepted the disciplinary action taken by West Brom for his conduct. The Baggies would have been hoping that was the end of the issue but, after only featuring as a second-half substitute in the club’s recent fixtures, Odemwingie has once again hit out. He continued: “Former Albion sporting director in the presence of the new and Manager apologised to me in private. Publicly not good ? “Drive was lunacy ? Missing in the training section that day also lunacy ? They forgot to complain about that though cos they knew were I was. “Things have almost got back to normal till Peter spoilt it again. What’s normal ? We see things differently obviously. “Has anyone seen me give interview to clubs website for a year now ? What about an interview in match day magazine ? I am on my own there. “Was ready to give half of the contract there and earn less to make it happen. Forcing a move really is when u want to leave 4 free.” Press Associationcenter_img Peter Odemwingie has launched a fresh Twitter attack on West Brom after being consigned to the substitutes’ bench since his failed bid to leave The Hawthorns in January.last_img read more

56 straight: Germantown captures second-consecutive Division 1 title

first_imgPerfection.It’s something few teams can boast. But, with Wisconsin Mr. Basketball winner Luke Fischer leading the way, Germantown can now say they’ve done it two consecutive years.And, well, they can say they’ve won 56 straight games, too.Being named the MVP of the tournament and finishing the game with 17 points and seven rebounds, Fischer led Germantown (28-0) past Mukwonago (23-5) 57-28 Saturday night at the Kohl Center, capping the program’s second-straight perfect season.“It’s been a long journey and a long March to get here,” Germantown head coach Steve Showalter said. “Once we did it once, it was much more difficult to do it again. This game, while the score probably doesn’t reflect it as much as it reflects inside of me, this game was a battle, a war, a struggle the whole way.”It wasn’t the usual way of victory for Germantown. The usual hot-scoring hands of juniors Jake Showalter and Lamonte Bearden were limited to a combined eight points and the team’s prolific offense was held below 60 points for the first time all season.The transition opportunities weren’t there either, as Mukwonago’s physical, tough style of play allowed its opponent only four fast-break points and brought the pace of the game to a grinding halt in a half-court slugfest.The game was tight the entire first half, with Germantown holding a 25-18 lead going into the break thanks to a layup from Fischer with 42 seconds left.While Germantown is known as an offensive team, it was the group’s defense that got the job done to capture the State Championship. The Warhawks held their opponent to just 20.9 percent shooting from the field and didn’t allow a single Indians’ player to get into double digits.“Germantown is a heck of a basketball team,” Mukwonago head coach Jim Haasser said. “I thought we battled about as hard as we could battle. I’m very proud of the boys. I thought we competed right up to the end.”The Warhawks’ balance and depth proved too much for the Indians to handle throughout the game. Every time Mukwonago would make a run or spark their fans to life, Germantown had an answer, as all six players in its rotation scored.Fischer, a member of the Indiana Hoosiers’ 2013 recruiting class, made his presence known in the game, going 8-for-10 from the field with high percentage looks while contesting every rebound in the paint.But, Mukwonago made a point to attack the 7-footer early in the game, as their strong game around the rim forced Fischer into two quick fouls in the first quarter and limited him to just 12 minutes in the first half. Still, Fischer scored 11 points, including seven in the second quarter after checking back in.Just a day earlier, Fischer had enjoyed exerting low block position on Oshkosh North in the semifinals, but against a physically-gifted Indians’ squad Fischer found himself many times far out of the paint.“It wasn’t like last night where I could float around and have the ball lobbed up to me,” Fischer said. “I had to work for it and we all did a great job busting our butts to try to get offensive rebounds, but they’re just a big solid team.”Fatigue finally worked its way into Mukwonago in the game’s final eight minutes. Entering the fourth quarter trailing 36-22, the Indians whittled the Warhawks’ lead down to 10 with 5:23 left in the game. But, the floodgates burst open, as Germantown went on a final and season-defining run, scoring 19 consecutive unanswered points to close the game while not allowing their opponent to score a single point.“We just kept missing shot after shot,” Mukwonago junior Dominic Cizauskas said, who finished with nine points to lead his team. “We shot awful, it was pretty bad. We just weren’t hitting anything.”The Indians played with a short rotation, as every starter logged more than 24 minutes of play in the game. But, a day removed from winning a tremendously physical game against Milwaukee King, it became apparent there wasn’t much gas left in the tank, as the team committed uncharacteristically sloppy passes and shots in the final minutes of the game.“80-2 in three years, that’s a pretty good record for Luke Fischer and our team,” Showalter said. “Winning is so much sweeter. We’re going to do whatever we can to keep something going here.”last_img read more
