Team Penske has uncharacteristic struggles at Milwaukee Mile

(Jeffrey Phelps, AP)Juan Pablo Montoya, left, and Helio Castroneves rebounded from early struggles to post top-five finishes at the Milwaukee Mile Sunday. (Jeffrey Phelps, AP)WEST ALLIS, Wis. — A crash at the Milwaukee Mile dealt a significant setback to Will Power’s bid for a second straight Verizon IndyCar Series championship.But considering the fact that Helio Castroneves had to start at the back of the pack because of a penalty and Juan Pablo Montoya got caught speeding on pit road, things could have been even worse for Team Penske on Sunday.Despite the setbacks, Castroneves wound up finishing second and Montoya finished fourth — allowing Montoya to hold onto the IndyCar Series points lead. Montoya came into Milwaukee with a 46-point lead on Power, and leaves with a 54-point lead over Scott Dixon.“We grew our points lead with only four races to go,” Montoya said.RACE RECAP: Sebastien Bourdais wins Wisconsin 250It wasn’t Penske’s best day, but it wasn’t a complete disaster, either.“At times, it was a little bit hard to start from the back, no question,” Castroneves said. “But the team delivered the pit stops very well, and that put us in position to fight for the win.”Things didn’t end up nearly as well for Power, who got caught up in a crash when Ryan Briscoe spun just after a restart on lap 131. The 22nd-place finish knocks Power back to fifth in the IndyCar Series points standings, 70 behind Montoya; he came into Milwaukee in second place in the standings.“I saw (Briscoe) start to spin and I gave it some gas,” Power said. “I thought I was going to get by him. Unfortunately I didn’t and he took me and we’re done. I guess you can’t get frustrated. You’ve got to keep moving on. Eventually it will change. We’re just going to keep focused and move on to the next one.”Simon Pagenaud finished a respectable ninth for Penske.BOURDAIS: Quietly building strong IndyCar legacyThe day started with Penske being uncharacteristically off target in qualifying, with the most notable mistake by Castroneves’ team. His crew didn’t get its car in line for qualifying 10 minutes before their scheduled run, as required by IndyCar rules. That meant he had to start at the back of the pack.“It was really frustrating,” Castroneves said. “Obviously there was a mistake, showing up 10 minutes late for the line. And certainly, I heard the weekend before, Fontana, somebody had the same issue. So these are the rules they really enforce.”None of the other Penske cars qualified particularly well, with Montoya eighth, Power 14th and Pagenaud 17th.THUMBS UP, THUMBS DOWN: From the Milwaukee MileThen Montoya earned a drive-through penalty for a a pit road speeding violation just before the race’s halfway point, dropping him out of the top five all the way back to 15th.“We pitted early and I was running third and I came for a stop and I downshifted and I pressed the (pit speed limiter) button,” Montoya said. “I don’t know if I didn’t press the button hard enough or something and we got behind the eight ball there. We made a good call to keep me out and it was fun. It was a tough, hard race but it was fun.”last_img read more

Rebels fall to George Mason 68-62

first_imgCHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — George Mason coach Dave Paulsen understands it will take time for the Patriots to become a polished group on offense. Their showing against Mississippi was a good start.Ole Miss opened the Gildan Charleston Classic with a 68-62 loss to George Mason on Thursday.Ole Miss opened the Gildan Charleston Classic with a 68-62 loss to George Mason on Thursday.The Patriots (1-2) won their first game since Paulsen took over last March, outlasting the Rebels of the Southeastern Conference 68-62 to open the Charleston Classic on Thursday.Shevon Thompson had 19 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks to lead the Patriots, who saw their 13-point second-half lead disappear before rallying back.“We’re a work in progress offensively, so that’s to be expected,” Paulsen said of the late breakdowns. “A couple of the plays our freshmen made the last minute, I think they’re trying to put me in the box. But they bounced back.”Marquise Moore had the biggest plays down the stretch for George Mason. He hit his only 3-pointer after Ole Miss had come from 52-39 down to tie the game at 56-all.Moore again came through after the Rebels (2-1) closed to 61-60 with 91 seconds left with a driving layup that seemed to catch Ole Miss on their heels.Thompson’s defense came into play with a block on Sebastian Saiz in the final minute with Mississippi down just three. The Patriots closed with a 7-1 run.Ole Miss coach Andy Kennedy said the 6-foot-11 Thompson was decisive and effective beneath the basket. Thompson made his first six shots before forcing the Rebels to pack down low with more than one defender.“We allowed Thompson to get to his left hand and he shot over the top of us a couple of times,” Kennedy said. “I thought he was really dominant against us.”Jaire Grayer had 15 points and Moore 12 for the Patriots. Stefan Moody led Ole Miss with 18 points, 13 coming in the second half.Saiz came into this game with double-doubles in his first two contests for the Rebels. But he was just 3 of 9 with Thompson underneath.Mississippi was looking to build on its solid start and open 3-0 for the fourth time in five seasons. But the Rebels got off slowly, going 2 of 10 from the floor to fall behind. COLD SHOOTING The Ole Miss starters struggled to hit shots against George Mason. Other than Stefan Moody, who made 7 of 12, the four other starters combined to go 9 of 35. That included double-digit average scorers Saiz and Sam Finley. Saiz finished 3 of 9 while Finley was 4 of 14. The Rebels shot 34.8 percent for the game, their lowest showing this season. EXTRA PASS All 15 of George Mason’s assists came from their starting five. 6-8 senior Marko Gujanicic led the way with six while Otis Livingston and Moore had three apiece. Paulsen said he liked seeing his players find their open teammates. TIP-INS George Mason: The Patriots are back in the Charleston Classic for the first time since 2010. That year, they defeated Charlotte in the opener before falling to North Carolina State and Wofford.Mississippi: The Rebels are 18-6 in regular-season tournaments in Kennedy’s previous nine seasons. They won the Emerald Coast Classic in 2014, the Barclays Classic in 2013 and the San Juan Shootout in 2007.

“It’s very likely” – Belief Chelsea player will leave this summer,…

first_imgThe French magazine explained the Blues had recently reached out to the Paris Saint-Germain defender’s entourage about a potential move this summer when the player will be a free agent, and the interest was received favourably.However, it was made clear Kurzawa wanted to first know what Chelsea’s intentions were, as he knew both Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri already occupy his role in the squad.Well, we speculated this could mean one of the two could be on their way out, and Luca Marchetti, a journalist for Sky Italia, reckons it’s the latter.Embed from Getty ImagesHe said in an editorial for TuttoMercatoWeb and relayed by Area Napoli: “Juventus and Inter are already well informed for months about Emerson Palmieri, whom Chelsea wanted €40m for in January.“Today, the slightly lower prices could help. Maurizio Sarri and Antonio Conte know him well and would like him after having studied him and valued him at Stamford Bridge. Will he leave? It’s very likely because Chelsea are looking for someone on the left”.That last bit isn’t exactly news, as reports from both Portugal and France also suggested Chelsea were interested in Alex Telles, needing to fight Paris Saint-Germain for his signature.Kurzawa would be free, but Telles would cost around €30m, and if Marina Granovskaia can get something similar for Emerson Palmieri, then all the better.This is also echoed to some extent by Tuttosport, who claim on Friday the defender is moving ‘further and further away’ from Chelsea, but that before Juventus can make a move, they need to get rid of Mattia De Sciglio.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoHero WarsGetting this Treasure is impossible!

Barcelona 4-0 Sevilla: Two late red cards taint big Blaugrana win

first_img However, Barca’s win was tainted by Mateu Lahoz’s late show.
