His first shot didn’t go, neither did shots by two other Marshall players and Michael Carter-Williams’ block sent the ball back to the Marshall forward about midway through the second half.But the fifth time was the charm. Tinnon ended the mad scrambles and missed buckets, at least for one possession. Two possessions later, after two missed 3-point attempts, Tinnon tipped in another offensive rebound.‘They’re a physical rebounding team,’ SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. ‘They really got on the boards, exposed a weakness there. We didn’t do a good job on the boards. We forced a lot of missed shots and then we didn’t get the ball back.’While Marshall shot a subpar 33.8 percent, Syracuse never fully ran away from the Thundering Herd because of an exceptional performance by Marshall on the offensive glass. Led by Tinnon’s 15 boards, Marshall outrebounded the Orange 46-33, including grabbing 20 offensive rebounds. Syracuse (9-0) gritted its way to a 62-56 win over Marshall (5-2) on Tuesday anyway, but the Thundering Herd’s physicality tested the Orange’s resiliency.‘They’re definitely very physical,’ SU forward C.J. Fair said. ‘They remind me of a team like Cincinnati. They’re big, their guards are fast and quick, and they’re athletic.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMarshall entered Tuesday’s game ninth in the country in rebounding margin, outrebounding opponents by 9.7 boards per game. That edge was due much in part to Tinnon, who had three 14-rebound performances already, before his 17-point, 15-rebound game against SU.Much of it came in the second half, when the Thundering Herd grabbed 15 offensive rebounds compared to 15 total rebounds for the Orange in that span. It was a performance unseen by a Syracuse team with a positive rebounding margin itself this season.Boeheim said it’s a concern even though some pockets for offensive rebounds were opened by SU’s defense getting out on Marshall’s shooters.‘Whenever you’re going to play zone there’s going to be some opportunities because of the way we play our zone,’ Boeheim said. ‘… And that’s going to happen. I think we could have done a little bit better job than we did, but (Tinnon) is a good offensive rebounder, and he did a good job.’With the Orange leading by 14 with about five minutes to play in the second half, Marshall guard Damier Pitts missed a 3-pointer long from the right wing. But his backcourt mate Shaquille Johnson was there for the weak-side rebound. The ball was cycled back out, and Pitts knocked down a second opportunity from long range.Boeheim also pointed out that this was the first game all season Fair struggled to find himself. The sophomore forward entered the game as SU’s leading rebounder with 6.6 per game.But he said he never got into a rhythm. After James Southerland contested a shot by Marshall center Nigel Spikes, Fair went with Spikes toward the loose rebound. He didn’t win the race, but SU did manage to gain possession as center Baye Keita finally corralled the rebound.‘We just have to attack the glass a little better,’ said SU forward Kris Joseph, who had eight rebounds to pace SU. ‘Our leading rebounder, which I think is C.J., only had one rebound tonight and that won’t happen too many nights.’Other than Scoop Jardine, who had seven rebounds, the Orange guards didn’t pitch in as much on the boards either. Brandon Triche had three rebounds — one defensively — and Dion Waiters had zero against a more physical Marshall team with a rotation that included just one player shorter than 6 feet 3 inches.‘Their guys are pretty athletic, pretty big, and they kind of punked us on the boards today,’ Waiters said. ‘And myself, the other guards, we got to get more involved, like Scoop had seven rebounds today I heard, so that’s a big stat right there.’For just the second time all season, Syracuse was outrebounded. And this time, it wasn’t even close. Against a team that perhaps matches the physicality SU will face when it enters Big East play, the Orange was forced to gut out a win.It was a learning point.Said Boeheim: ‘It’s a physical game, and they are coming at you, and there are going to be a lot of games like that down the road.’email@example.com
Resurgent Egypt star Mohamed Salah scored the only goal of the game to lift nine-man Fiorentina to a 1-0 win over Inter Milan in the Italian Serie A on Sunday at the San Siro.The 22-year-old, who started on the bench before replacing injured Senegalese striker Khouma Babacar in the 43rd minute, blasted home from inside the box after Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic parried a shot into his path.On loan to Fiorentina from English side Chelsea until the end of the season, Salah has now scored in three straight Serie A games – that is all but his first game.He has now made six appearances for the Viola and his goal against Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League on Thursday means he has now scored in four of those games.Not bad for a guy used as a makeweight in a deal that saw Colombia winger Juan Cuadrado head the other way.Salah’s arrival, in addition to the $27m paid for Cuadrado, has proved an inspired piece of business for Fiorentina boss Vincenzo Montella who admitted last week that his side got the better deal. “Who did better out of the Cuadrado exchange? Fiorentina earned a lot of money and, on the pitch, they are similar players.” Montella had said.”Salah is a player that, even if he takes some breaks, is devastating over 40 or 50 yards,” he added.–
Seattle Dragons at St. Louis BattleHawksKickoff: 5 p.m. ETTV: FOXLive Stream: Fox Sports AppThe Dragons have struggled to maintain a steady offense, and I suggested they switch to backup quarterback B.J. Daniels. We’ll see if that happens this week as Seattle gets a tough test. Not only will the Dragons be entering a tough road environment in St. Louis, but the BattleHawks have been one of the more dominant teams this season. Quarterback Jordan Ta’amu has been impressive, although his stats may not fully show it. St. Louis fans were rocking in their Week 3 debut, so expect nothing less in their second straight home game.How to watch XFL games on SundayHouston Roughnecks at Dallas RenegadesKickoff: 4 p.m. ETTV: FS1Live Stream: Fox Sports AppThis is easily the game of the week for the XFL. Not only is it an in-state rivalry, but these have been two of the more fun teams to watch so far in this league. The Roughnecks have scored the most offensive touchdowns out of any teams with quarterback P.J. Walker leading the way. His reliable option Cam Phillips has been incredible, with six touchdown receptions in his last two games. The Renegades lost in Week 1, but have gone 2-0 since the return of starting quarterback Landry Jones. Expect a good ol’ fashioned Texas shootout.D.C. Defenders at Tampa Bay VipersKickoff: 7 p.m. ETTV: ESPN2Live Stream: WatchESPN appThis is the latest start of the XFL this season with the game not kicking off until 7 p.m. ET. This will be an interesting game to watch as the Defenders were humbled last week against the Wildcats who served the D.C. franchise its first loss of the season. Tampa Bay will likely be without offensive weapon Quinton Flowers, who left the team this week in apparent frustration. Week 1 starter Aaron Murray is healthy, but the Vipers are relying on Taylor Cornelius to start the game. Tampa Bay showed signs of life in Week 3, and could give the Defenders another surprising upset. The XFL ratings have fallen every week, but that’s somewhat of a misleading statement.Week 1 was always expected to draw more attention since it’s a brand new product. The ratings have been strong overall, and have been much better than the AAF’s ratings from last year. Expect the ratings to level out soon now that we’re nearing the midway point of the first season. Speaking of which, Week 4 brings us plenty of entertaining matchups. We have the Los Angeles Wildcats against the New York Guadians and Seattle Dragons against the St. Louis BattleHawks to start us off on Saturday. And on Sunday we get the Texas Showdown between the Houston Roughnecks and Dallas Renegades to start, and D.C. Defenders against the Tampa Bay Vipers to finish.If you’ve been watching the XFL consistently, you’re probably used to essentially the same schedule every week. Things remain steady on Saturday, but change dramatically on Sunday. The first game starts at 4:00 p.m. ET, and the second game is the latest start of the season so far at 7:00 p.m. ET.A storyline to keep an eye on is Quinton Flowers, a fan favorite for Tampa Bay, who has left the team this week. He’s still on the roster, but he appears to be frustrated over his lack of playing time and reports claim he wants to be traded.For betting odds and predictions you can read my previews from earlier in the week.MORE: SN Q&A with XFL commissioner Oliver Luck ahead of Week 4XFL schedule Week 4: What games are on today?Here’s the full schedule for Week 4 of the XFL season, plus final scores and how to watch every game live.Saturday, Feb. 29GameN.Y.

GuardiansKickoff: 2 p.m. ETTV: ABCLive Stream: WatchESPN appAs mentioned in the predictions column, this is a game between two teams going in opposite directions. Although the Wildcats only have one win on the season, Josh Johnson’s return to the offense has done wonders for this team. P.J. Walker is getting most of the attention, but Johnson’s numbers in his two starts have been very impressive. The NFL veteran will be looking to extend his team’s winning streak against a Guardians team that has fallen apart in these last two games.
