Syracuse men’s basketball opponent preview: What to know about Georgetown

first_imgSyracuse takes on former Big East rival Georgetown on Saturday afternoon in the nation’s capital. The Orange (8-1) has not played in a week since escaping with a win over Colgate, while the Hoyas (8-0) have breezed through their weak, nonconference slate. Tipoff between SU and Georgetown is set for 12:30 p.m. from Capital One Arena. The game will air nationally on CBS.Here’s what you need to know about the Hoyas. All-time series: Syracuse leads, 49-43Last time they played: Last December in the Carrier Dome, Georgetown spoiled Pearl Washington Day with a 78-71 victory in front of more than 25,000 fans. Frank Howard scored four points and Tyus Battle added two as the only current SU players to have played in the game. The Orange and Hoyas were even at the break, but Georgetown pulled away in the second half with 45 points on 50 percent shooting from the field. The Georgetown report: The Hoyas and Orange will match up for the 93rd time since the 1929-30 season in the third edition of the teams’ post-Big East rivalry. Georgetown is one of only six remaining undefeated teams in Division I. The Hoyas play the weakest nonconference schedule in the country, according to Kenpom.com. Patrick Ewing, who torched the Orange as an All-American in the 1980s, is in his first year at the helm of a team that has won its first eight games by a margin of 17.8 points per game. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJessie Govan, a junior center, leads the team in points and rebounds, while Marcus Derrickson (13.5 points per game) and Kaleb Johnson (12.5 points) also average double digits. The Hoyas were projected to finish 10th in the Big East at the start of the year, following a second consecutive 18-loss season. That prompted the firing of legendary coach John Thompson III. Six players left along with him, including two due to graduation, two transfers, one to the professional ranks and one due to injury. That makes this a rebuilding year for the Hoyas, though the undefeated record doesn’t indicate that.Georgetown has thrived through eight games because of a quality frontcourt and strong wing play. But its backcourt has struggled to produce offensively. Battle and Howard possess experience and length at the top that could give Hoyas guards some trouble. How Syracuse beats Georgetown: The Orange won’t have the size advantage it has had all season. The Hoyas rank fifth in the country in rebounding margin (11.8). Otherwise, Georgetown doesn’t stand out. They remain a relatively typical Hoyas team, based on methodical offense that works the ball inside and out and chews up clock with each possession. Should Syracuse maintain its stronghold inside and improve its perimeter defense — getting freshman forward Bouarama Sidibe back from injury is a good start — the Hoyas may struggle to keep pace. Stat to know: 20.7 Battle’s 20.7 points per game average ranks second in the ACC. The sophomore guard has failed to reach double digits just once through nine games, his only blemish being an eight-point showing in a game he exited early due to a lower back injury. Battle scored a game-high 24 points in SU’s last outing and has played go-to scorer whenever SU needs an offensive boost. Kenpom odds: Kenpom gives Syracuse a 53 percent chance to win this game. Kenpom also gives SU a greater-than-50-percent chance to win in each of its next five games, four of which come inside the Carrier Dome. Player to watch: Jessie Govan, center, No. 15Govan is a 6-foot-10 junior center who weighs 270 lbs, immediately creating a size mismatch inside for Paschal Chukwu and Bourama Sidibe. Neither comes within 40 pounds of Govan, who averages team highs in points (20.6 per game) and rebounds (13.0). A year ago he made 19 starts, placing third on the team in points (10.1 per game) and tying for the team lead with almost five boards per game. On Saturday, Govan and his double-double average pose as a dangerous threat in the paint that Syracuse hasn’t yet seen this season.

Go back to the enewsletter Last month Etihad Air

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterLast month, Etihad Airways opened a competition to engage four young Emirati fashion designers to create new onboard loungewear.The design themes had to involve Emirati and UAE influences, and designers were required to work with traditional patterns and accents, but make their work contemporary.Rawdha Al Shafar (A Friend of Mine by Xpose), Manaal Al Hammadi (Manaal Al Hammadi), Asma Al Matrooshi (Epiphany) and Aisha Al Marri (1981 Boutique) developed designs over a one week period for a chance to win the prize of having their design offered in Etihad Airways’ first class cabins and in The Residence on board the Airbus A380.Over the three day voting period, nearly 71,000 votes were submitted over Zahrat Al Khaleej’s Snapchat channel and website. The two finalists, Rawdha Al Shafar and Aisha Al Marri were chosen to develop a prototype design within a week for the final judging round, with Rawdha Al Shafar winning the final design.Rawdha Al Shafar said of the competition: “I am so honoured to have won this prestigious competition. The team at Zahrat Al Khaleej and Etihad Airways have been incredibly supportive. The other designers have certainly been tough opponents as they all showed much skill and talent. This was an extremely challenging competition – to turn around a design and a prototype in just a couple of weeks was testing but certainly rewarding. I can’t wait to see my design on board next year!”The team from A Friend of Mine by Xpose will work closely with Etihad Airways’ Guest Experience & Delivery and Product & Brand teams to monitor the production of the loungewear over the next few months before being introduced onboard by quarter one next year.Linda Celestino, Etihad Airways Vice President of Guest Experience and delivery, said: “This is the first time an airline has done something such as this. I absolutely loved working with these incredibly talented young Emirati women, who showed such passion and determination. This gives Etihad Airways an opportunity to showcase the talent that exists in the region. It was certainly a tough choice but A Friend of Mine deserves the win.”Go back to the e-newsletterHala Al Gergawi, Managing Editor of Zahrat Al Khaleej, Fatma Al Mudhareb, Rawdha Al Shafar, Bouthaina Al Marri and Linda Celestino, Vice President Guest Experience and DeliverySketches of the winning design by A Friend of Mine by Xposelast_img read more
