City clinch title with victory

first_img Press Association But realistically – with City having a two-point advantage – that was always a long shot and there was never any hint that the nerve-jangling final-day drama of their title win two years ago would be repeated. It was raining heavily at kick-off but the atmosphere was raucous and City approached the game with the confidence of a side that were comfortable and in control of their destiny. City’s top scorer Sergio Aguero was back in their side after injury but not at his sharpest, although on this occasion his brilliance was not needed. West Ham did play more positively than the previous visitors to Eastlands, Aston Villa in midweek, but the occasions they threatened were still few and far between. The hosts appealed unsuccessfully for a penalty early on after Mark Noble deflected a Pablo Zabaleta cross onto his hand. Their first real chance came after David Silva and Aguero combined well on the edge of the box. Yaya Toure’s initial effort was blocked before Silva volleyed over from a Zabaleta cross. Zabaleta then wanted a penalty after going down under a challenge from Mohamed Diame before Aguero showed some nimble footwork to spark an attack from inside his own half. The ball was worked across the field and Aguero tried to finish from distance but slipped as he shot and Adrian saved comfortably. Nasri then had a good cross turned behind and Toure curled a shot narrowly wide as news filtered through that Liverpool had fallen behind in their game against Newcastle. City maintained the pressure, with Aleksandar Kolarov forcing Adrian to tip over a powerful drive from distance. Nasri finally broke through six minutes before the interval as he took aim from 20 yards and struck a powerful low shot which went in off the post after a possible touch from Adrian. City fans then increased the volume significantly and Aguero glanced a header wide before Silva saw an effort deflected onto the bar off Carroll. City truly got the party started four minutes into the second half when Kompany stabbed home from six yards after Edin Dzeko won the ball from a corner. The City captain celebrated with unconfined joy. West Ham did make a rare charge to the City end but Matt Taylor’s mistimed shot bounced wide. Aguero had two opportunities to extend City’s lead but headed wide at the near post and then failed to connect in front of an open goal from a Zabaleta cross. Aguero appeared to pick up another knock in the closing moments and he showed his frustration by bundling over Noble off the ball. That sparked an unecessary scuffle between several players of both sides and Aguero was eventually booked, but it could not dampen City’s celebrations. They knew the job was completed and the hosts duly played out the closing minutes with little alarm to prompt a pitch invasion and jubilant scenes.

International students: living in two worlds

first_imgGraphic by Jenny Chung | Daily TrojanDuring her first week at USC, Ana Lucia Rivera would introduce herself to people as just “Ana.” As a freshman international student from Honduras, she didn’t want people to deal with two names.But Rivera, an international relations major, came to realize that her name wasn’t just “Ana,” and she didn’t need to sacrifice her identity just because she was in America.“Every time I meet someone [now], I’m like, ‘My name is Ana Lucia,’” Rivera said.In many ways, Rivera’s anecdote epitomizes the experience of an international student at any university in the country. It is the struggle to adapt to a new country, a new culture. It is the dilemma of whether to change your identity. It is the challenge to fit in while speaking a second language and moving away from home for the first time.But it is especially true at USC, which enrolls among the most international students of any university in the country. This academic year, the University brought in its most diverse freshman class in history, with international students now comprising nearly a quarter of the student body. Sixteen percent of the incoming freshman class came from 50 different countries, a figure that rose 2 percent from the 2016 freshman unit. Prior to 2014, USC had been the most popular option for international students for 13 consecutive years, according to the Los Angeles Times.At a school of 44,000, it’s easy for international students to get lost in the shuffle. And oftentimes, they are. USC has championed a culture of diversity, the various international flags hanging at the Von KleinSmid Center serving as a symbol of welcome. But at the personal level, it’s difficult to grasp how each international student will adapt to a campus,  country and  culture they may not have experienced before.A different worldThere is one similarity every international student shares upon entering the United States: culture shock.A common trigger is the food. Rivera, who grew up in Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras, was accustomed to eating a heavy diet of beans, especially baleada, a classic Honduran dish. “I’m a freshman so I have to eat from the dining hall,” Rivera said. “It’s just eggs, bacon — the same thing.”Another is football knowledge, or lack thereof. At a school where every Saturday of fall semester is centered around football games, many international students enter USC not knowing that football isn’t “soccer.” Xiaoyue Zhang, a senior from Shanghai double majoring in business administration and accounting, was one of them.“At USC, people are really eager to talk about sports or football and stuff, and I had no clue what they were talking about the first few years,” Zhang said. “I think that’s common.”Felix Tam, a junior majoring in  international relations and the global economy who grew up in Hong Kong, said he has a professor in his business law class who frequently brings up football during class, and it makes him feel out of place.“He’s gone to every football game since he was a freshman,” Tam said. “Every time he talks about football so enthusiastically and the class echoes with him, I don’t feel like I’m a part of it.”There are minor things, too, like greetings. In Honduras, Rivera was accustomed to saying “Good morning,” or “How are you doing?” to people all the time, whether she knew them or not.“Here, people don’t really do that,” Rivera said. “When I go into any place, I’ve been inclined to do it, and some people won’t answer back. Some people will look at me like I’m weird.”But ultimately, Tam has come to accept the cultural discrepancies, comparing it to a semester-long study abroad program, except for four years.“I just kind of embraced the cultural shock,” Tam said. “It’s just something that every international student is going to experience. It’s tough for international students to integrate into the culture, but that’s one part that is inevitable. It’s also the reason why we came here.”Language barrierRivera went to an American school in Honduras, one that taught classes in English. Having spoken the language her entire life, she felt confident with it coming into USC. But she only used English in academic settings, switching to Spanish whenever she talked to friends.“I know what I want to say, but I know I can say it a lot better or faster in Spanish,” Rivera said. “So that’s been a huge difference, learning to just think in English and how to say things in English. I was very confident in my English skills before coming here, but I’ve become more self-conscious about what I’m saying and how I’m saying it.”Conversational English takes some getting used to for international students. Tam, for instance, didn’t know what the phrase “I’m good” meant when he first arrived in the country. His resident assistant, sensing more questions, referred him to Urban read more

Women of Troy come up short in ITA Regionals

first_imgKatz, a freshman from Los Angeles, and Boren, a senior who hails from Laguna Niguel, Calif., but played at Tennessee before transferring to USC this season, were seeded second in the tournament.The duo, ranked No. 19 in the ITA preseason doubles poll, enjoyed a first-round bye before defeating teams from Hawai’i, UC Santa Barbara and Pepperdine with ease to land a spot in the semifinals. There, they were set to face off against their teammates, juniors Giuliana Olmos and Zoë Scandalis, who were forced to withdraw due to injury, earning Katz and Boren a spot in the finals.In the championship match, Katz and Boren faced off against UCLA’s fourth-seeded Jennifer Brady and Catherine Harrison, who have been dominant this season. The Bruin pair most recently defeated Scandalis and Olmos in the ITA All-American Championship finals.Brady and Anderson proved too powerful for the Women of Troy, defeating Katz and Boren 8-2 and handing them only their second loss in 10 matches together.USC’s No. 1 doubles team of senior Kaitlyn Christian and junior Sabrina Santamaria saw their first action of the season in the tournament this weekend. The defending NCAA champions reached the semifinals of the tournament before falling to Brady and Harrison, 8-1. Though the score was one-sided, Santamaria was not at full strength, as she withdrew from her singles match the day before due to an injury.Santamaria’s injury rendered her unable to match her achievement in last year’s regional tournament, where she reached the finals as the second seed.On the rest of the singles side, Boren once again led the Women of Troy. She finished as the tournament’s runner-up, ultimately falling to UCLA’s Chanelle Van Nguyen, 6-1, 6-0, in the finals.

Christian also bowed out in the third round, while Paige Keating, a sophomore who recently transferred from Ole Miss, was defeated in the second round.The tournament demonstrated the depth of USC’s women’s tennis team and proved that USC and UCLA will be the biggest contenders in the Southwest this spring season.Next up for the Women of Troy is the ITF Florence Open in Florence, S.C. USC’s women’s tennis team has achieved success across the board this fall. In each tournament, different players have stepped up, and this week was no different. In this week’s Intercollegiate Tennis Association Southwest Regional Championships, held in San Diego, Calif., newcomers Zoë Katz and Brynn Boren set the bar for the team, reaching the finals of the tournament.Rough start · The doubles tandem of senior Kaitlyn Christian (above) and junior Sabrina Santamaria lost to UCLA on Monday in the semifinals. – Ralf Cheung | Daily Trojan Follow Aubrey on Twitter @aubreykragenlast_img

Syracuse records 15 steals in 65-49 win over Jacksonville

first_img Published on December 21, 2015 at 10:05 pm Contact Connor: cgrossma@syr.edu | @connorgrossman Facebook Twitter Google+ With the game already in hand, Cornelia Fondren pressed up against Jacksonville forward Briona Brown as she dribbled the ball past half court.Fondren extended her arms out wide to play defense as Brown froze. She tried passing to her right, but Fondren’s left hand nicked the ball away and set off a foot race. The Syracuse guard swooped up the ball off the ground to notch her fifth steal of the game and was fouled before reaching the basket.She sank both free throws to extend the Orange’s lead to 65-44 with under two minutes to play, and recorded the last of SU’s 15 steals against the Dolphins.Syracuse (7-3) beat Jacksonville (6-6), 65-49, and reestablished its aggressive defensive style to generate more offense on Monday night in the Carrier Dome. The Orange was hamstrung in its last game, scoring a season-low 54 points against Arizona State and recording just six points off fast breaks.Because of plays like Fondren’s near the end of the game, SU caused 26 turnovers and scored 14 of its points on fast breaks. Fondren led the Orange in steals, but Brittney Sykes, Briana Day and Julia Chandler all recorded multiple takeaways.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGoing into Monday’s game, SU led the Atlantic Coast Conference with an average of 13 steals per game through nine contests this season.But Syracuse leaned on the long ball to initially build up a cushion on the scoreboard. All five of SU’s shots from behind the arc swished through the net in the first quarter, including all three of Brianna Butler’s tries.The Orange’s perimeter-heavy offense only netted six 3s against the Sun Devils nine days prior.Senior guard Maggie Morrison kept SU’s hot streak going by sinking an open 3 to start the second quarter and draw out her team’s lead to 24-11. It kicked off a 7-0 Syracuse run that kept the Dolphins from scoring for nearly seven minutes leaking back to the first quarter.The Orange entered halftime with a 16-point lead, and scored its first basket of the second half when Briana Day weaved between Kimberly Dawkins and Christin Mercer en route to an and-one layup.Sykes shouldered much of Syracuse’s offense and defensive load in the second half, and finished the night with 10 points and 11 rebounds to record her first double-double of the year.On an inbound play midway through the third quarter, Sykes caught her defender off guard and stood flat-footed before leaping high up to tap in Alex Peterson’s lob pass toward the 5-foot-9 guard.They ran the same play again in the fourth quarter, but Brandi Buie fouled Sykes on her way up so she wasn’t able to cleanly grab the ball. Sykes sank 1-of-2 free throws before driving to the basket on SU’s ensuing possession to stretch the lead out to 20.Sykes and the Orange never relented, leading the entirety of the 40-minute contest and burying the “funeral” mood felt by head coach Quentin Hillsman after his team’s worst loss of the season against Arizona State.
