After loss to Huskies, Orange focuses on speeding up tempo

Posted on

first_imgSporting a somewhat bulkier version of Rip Hamilton’s trademark face mask to cover her newly fractured nose at practice on Tuesday, sophomore Skylar Sabbag could definitely vouch for the speed of the game this past weekend. ‘There was, like, 10 seconds left,’ Sabbag said. ‘Connecticut was taking a corner kick, and I was marking my player. The ball came to us, and I was trying to head it out. So she (the Connecticut player) was on my left, Alyscha (Mottershead) was on my right, and then we all went up, and I don’t remember what happened after that.’ What happened after that, among other things, was the final horn to a match in which the Orange held very little control over the pacing. In turn, SU was shut down. And pacing, thus far, has fluctuated with the success and tribulations of the Orange. It appears it will continue that way. A couple weeks ago, when facing highly ranked schools like Portland and Washington, Syracuse was trying to slow the game down. This week in practice, preparing for division foes in Notre Dame and DePaul, SU will need to find a way to speed it back up. Between then and now, Syracuse has gotten more comfortable as a team and, as a result, has been able to control possession a little easier against lesser opponents. But Sunday’s game served, at the very least, as a wake-up call that these Big East teams can run, too.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text The focus of the next few practices will be on speed of decision making and technical execution under pressure as the Orange prepares for quicker, more decisive teams on the horizon. ‘We get the ball, and we take one or two touches,’ SU head coach Phil Wheddon said. ‘When against these fast teams, you can’t do that. You’ve got to move the ball much, much quicker. Receive it and play it. We’re going to put some players under some pressure today, to perform individually in a one-on-one situation, and it’s going to be about competing on both sides of the ball.’ Wheddon needs to see how his players will react in the midst of constant pressure, often when it is difficult to communicate between teammates about who guards whom or who needs to be positioned where. These are all decisions the head coach wants to see his team make on the fly. ‘We’re really trying to make sure that players are aware on both attack and defense what their responsibilities are,’ Wheddon said. If the Orange is going to be able to run with the Irish, a team known for being both quick and technical, it is going to have to work on staying alert on both sides of the ball. Connecticut was able to force frequent turnovers because it chased and pressured the Syracuse defense. Casey Ramirez, one of SU’s defensive leaders, recognizes the effect of natural foot speed in every situation. ‘Always being on your toes,’ Ramirez said. ‘If someone gets past you, you always have to recover or watch the ball to make sure that they have to step past someone. If we get better at it, it makes you a better team in general. The faster you play, the better you are.’ Good defense breeds a good offense. Wheddon will be looking to put together some quick-shifting packages to outthink and outrun future conference opponents, because Syracuse can no longer afford to be outhustled. Ramirez is one of the quicker players on the team, but it will rest on the entire squad to pick up the pace. Sabbag has confidence SU will be up for the challenge. ‘I think we’re a fast team,’ she said. ‘I think we just need to play smart. We just need to stay with our players and really do whatever we can to not let them score.’ Last weekend, Sabbag suffered a similar injury to the Detroit Pistons’ Richard Hamilton. An injury Hamilton repeatedly attempted to overcome without the mask. But then he gave in, and he won a championship. Sabbag will now be looking for similar results from herself and the rest of the SU team. And the Orange hopes it will get off to the races. Said Sabbag: ‘Yeah, I’ll be alright. I can play with a broken nose.’ [email protected] Published on September 28, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more
