Volleyball eyes strong start to season

first_imgJunior outside hitter and first team All-American Khalia Lanier prepares to serve an ace. (Daily Trojan file photo)The women’s volleyball team begins its 2018 campaign in the Trojan Invitational at Galen Center on Friday with a match against the University of Kentucky. The team will also face Creighton and Northern Iowa on Saturday in the round-robin tournament. Ranked 10th in the AVCA national preseason coaches poll and second in the Pac-12 preseason coaches poll, the Trojans field a strong team in 2018. They are led by junior outside hitter Khalia Lanier, last season’s leader in points and kills, and senior setter Reni Meyer-Whalley, 2017’s leader in assists. Also returning are senior libero Victoria Garrick, who was first on the team in digs and third in assists, and senior middle blocker Brittany Welsh, third on the team in blocks.The Trojans lost a true star in All-American opposite hitter Brittany Abercrombie, who was second on the team in both kills and blocks. With Abercrombie showcasing her talents with the Team USA Pan Am Cup preliminary roster instead, the Trojans will need to find a suitable replacement if they want to live up to their ranking.USC has added five freshmen to this year’s squad. Middle blocker Abby Hansen, at 6-foot-4, is an intimidating presence with the potential to be an offensive force. Setters Ashley Humphreys, who went undefeated throughout her high school varsity career, and Raquel Lazaro, who won two Spanish National Championship gold medals, also join the fray. The newcomers are topped off with powerhouse outside hitter Brooklyn Schirmer, who comes off winning a club national championship and competing for Redondo Union High School. These aren’t the only new faces, however. This weekend will also mark the beginning of the Brent Crouch era. The newly minted head coach, who inherited a winless Portland team in 2014 and led them to their winningest season in 25 years by 2016, was given the top job in January. In addition, middle blocker Jasmine Gross transferred to USC for her junior season. Gross excelled in her two years at Pepperdine, earning All-West Coast Conference first-team honors twice and ranking fourth in the nation in blocks per set in 2017 with 1.52.The Trojans take on fifth-ranked Kentucky in their first game of the season Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Wildcats are an aggressive and dangerous offensive team, finishing fourth in both hitting percentage and kills per set a season ago. They return their top two leaders in points in junior outside hitter Leah Edmond and sophomore outside hitter Avery Skinner.This is a tough opponent for the Trojans to face in their opening game. Kentucky is prolific, having made it to the quarterfinals of last year’s NCAA Women’s Volleyball Championship tournament, and should only improve as its young stars mature. However, the Trojans should be able to put up at least a good fight, as they made it just as far in last season’s bracket.USC faces Northern Iowa the following morning at 10:30 a.m. The Panthers are unranked but not to be underestimated. They boast the high-scoring hitter duo of Piper Thomas and Karlie Taylor, who combined for an incredible 1,166 points last season. They rode these two stars to the most kills per set in the nation in 2017. Northern Iowa set up Thomas and Taylor well, ranking second in assists per set a year ago.UNI did have to replace leading server Bri Weber, however, so the Trojans should look to take advantage of any shortcomings early in plays. Finally, the Trojans play 13th-ranked Creighton Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. The Bluejays are another strong offensive team, albeit not as intimidating as Kentucky or UNI. They ranked 14th in hitting percentage and 18th in kills per set in 2017. Creighton also returns its two best scorers from last season in senior outside hitters Jaali Winters and Taryn Kloth, both of whom topped 350 kills. Liberos Brittany Witt and Samantha Bohnet, who each had at least 28 service aces and 109 assists, will be leading its defense.This weekend is a test to see what the Trojans are made of. Their performance against two top-12 teams in the country and perhaps the best offensive team in the nation should be a good indicator of just how good USC can be this season.last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: James Conner, Damien Williams, Jordan Howard, more RBs affect Week 13 waiver wire pickups

first_imgRunning back injuries could be the difference between making the fantasy playoffs with a Week 13 win and missing out due to playing an eight-touch pickup from the waiver wire. Our Week 13 RB rankings have a number of question marks due to injury news. James Conner, Damien Williams, Jordan Howard, Matt Breida, and Devonta Freeman all will have a big impact on pickups and start/sit decisions. At least we already know that Marlon Mack (hand) is out, leaving Jonathan Williams on the “start” side of the start ’em, sit ’em bubble.For the latest news on injured WRs Adam Thielen, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Tyreek Hill, and more, go here; for updates on TEs Austin Hooper and Evan Engram, click here. Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 13 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs James Conner playing Week 13?Conner told reporters Monday that “it’ll be a little longer” before he’s ready to play again. That makes it sound like he’s not going to be ready for Sunday’s matchup with the Browns as he works his way back from a recurring shoulder injury.Benny Snell Jr. is the biggest beneficiary of a Conner absence, receiving 21 carries in the same arrangement in Week 12. Snell is a solid RB2 play against the Browns if Conner is out, while Jaylen Samuels becomes a PPR FLEX option with no Conner.WEEK 13 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endDamien Williams injury updateWilliams hurt his ribs in Week 11 before the Chiefs bye, exiting Monday Night Football and not returning. His absence meant more work for LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams. Andy Reid has yet to provide any updates on Williams’ status for Week 13 against the Raiders.Whoever gets the KC running back start slots in as a fantasy RB2, so if that’s McCoy while Williams is out, so be it. Darrel Williams actually led the Chiefs in carries that night and has remained tantalizing in short bursts, so he’s also worth a pickup in most formats. WEEK 13 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | Y! Cash | Y! GPPWill Jordan Howard play Week 13?Doug Pederson said Monday that Howard (shoulder) remains day-to-day. With how liberally Pederson has used that term all season, that could mean basically anything as Howard has yet to be cleared for contact in return from his shoulder injury. Pederson added that Howard hasn’t yet regained full strength in his shoulder.(Update: Howard still hasn’t been cleared for contact as of Wednesday morning.)The Eagles play the Dolphins on Sunday, so the starting RB for Philly will be an automatic fantasy starter. If Howard plays, Miles Sanders is no more than a boom-or-bust FLEX play, while if Howard is out and Sanders starts, Jay Ajayi would be a TD-or-bust FLEX play.Is Devonta Freeman playing on Thanksgiving?On the Falcons’ estimated injury report Monday, Freeman (foot) was listed as a limited participant. Freeman hasn’t actually practiced in the past two weeks as Brian Hill has picked up two Atlanta starts at RB. The Falcons host the Saints on Thanksgiving night.(Update: Freeman returned to practice Tuesday in a limited fashion.)Freeman is a sure-fire RB2 in PPR leagues if he’s active, but Hill is less of a sure thing if Freeman is out. He’s been inefficient and the Saints are solid against the run. You still probably would play Hill as a FLEX because he’s likely to see 15 touches. Qadree Ollison would remain in a touchdown vulture position if Freeman remains out, but you can’t really bet on that in season-long leagues.MORE WEEK 13 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup BuilderMatt Breida injury updateSpeaking in broad terms about injured 49ers, including Breida, on Monday, Kyle Shanahan said they have a “chance” to play Sunday afternoon against the Ravens. Breida has now missed two straight games because of a foot injury. At this point, you can really only trust Tevin Coleman in Baltimore if Breida is out. Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. both get backup work, but without consistent double-digit touches for either, they aren’t as strong of plays.When will Marlon Mack be back?Colts head coach Frank Reich has already announced Mack won’t play in Week 13. That means another week of Jonathan Williams as the Indianapolis starter with Nyheim Hines as the change-of-pace back.After 29 touches a week ago, you’ve got to fire Williams right back up as a fantasy RB2 against the Titans on Sunday. Hines remains in play in PPR formats coming off a season-high nine carries to go with his usual handful of catches.last_img read more
