Fast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 105-57 blowout victory over Eastern Michigan

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Behind one of SU’s best offensive half of the season, Syracuse (7-4) raced out to a 52-24 lead at the break and cruised to a 105-57 win over Eastern Michigan (6-5) in the Carrier Dome on Monday night. The Orange assisted on all 19 field goals in the first half and hit eight 3-pointers in the opening 20 minutes. The rest was a formality, even without Tyler Lydon, who didn’t play in the second half due to a strained right Achilles suffered late in the first period.Here are three quick takeaways from SU’s dominant win over the Eagles.The status of Tyler LydonAfter coming down flat on his right foot following a rebound late in the first half, Lydon limped off the court and headed to the locker room with trainer Brad Pike. He hobbled into the tunnel under his own power and didn’t return to the court until the second half was just starting.Lydon was being held out as a precaution and would be available if the game was closer, per the ESPNU broadcast. Instead, with Syracuse leading comfortably at half, the sophomore sat in between assistant coaches Mike Hopkins and Gerry McNamara while wearing a blue T-shirt and warmup pants with ice on his right foot/ankle.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore his injury, Lydon led the Orange with 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting. He hit both of his 3-pointers, both of his free throws and chipped in six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal.The guards answered Jim Boeheim’s pleasGranted, it was against an inferior opponent, but Eastern Michigan came into the game averaging the second-most steals per game in the country. Rob Murphy’s 2-3 zone, the one he learned while an assistant under Boeheim from 2004-11, was no match for the Orange’s backcourt.The SU head coach has harped on the fact his team needs more from its guards, in whatever capacity that may be. On Monday night, they delivered. Andrew White, Tyus Battle, John Gillon and Frank Howard combined to score 56 points while shooting 17-of-33 from the field.Howard registered 11 assists and Gillon nine, while Battle seemed back to his normal self following a week of not practicing an being eased back into competition against the Hoyas. Howard shed his offensive demons to an extent, scoring 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting, snapping a dreadful 2-for-20 streak over the three games prior to Monday’s.White and Gillon continued their steady play of late, combining to score 28 points while hitting a total of seven 3-pointers.Tyler Roberson emerges from the doghouse, for nowWith Lydon sidelined the entirety of the second half, Roberson played over 20 minutes for the first time since Nov. 26 against South Carolina.He scored 10 points, almost equaling his total of 12 points from the last six games. Roberson also pulled down eight rebounds, holding down frontcourt duties with either Dajuan Coleman and Taurean Thompson in the second half.Roberson has been mainly a non-factor this season with the emergence of the freshman Thompson as Syracuse’s best low-post scorer. In the first half, the combination of Lydon and Thompson was lethal, as the pair connected on high-lows on multiple occasions to stretch Syracuse’s lead to enough where it didn’t need arguably its best player for the second stanza.And even if it was at the expense of an injury, Roberson got his chance, which he didn’t too all that badly with.

MustardBet – Enhancing the in-play experience

first_img MustardBet shuts down business October 14, 2019 Share Submit Share Golden Race launches La Libertadores virtual football cup April 30, 2019 StumbleUpon Interwetten targets €100 million GGR mark for 2019 August 5, 2019 Related Articles The world of online sportsbooks is becoming an increasingly saturated environment, so much so that the team at MustardBet took the decision to completely rethink the sports betting experience, and develop their own bespoke platform.Believing it has now developed an attractive product, the overall aim to make Mustardbet stand out by doing “things a little bit differently to the other bookies” has been stressed, in addition to appealing to bettors of all shapes and sizes.Engagement and retention are undoubtedly the key factors here, something the firm’s Head of Marketing Tom Brew highlights as being integral: “Our key difference to the customer will obviously be the betting interface. It’s been said that it looks a bit more like a betting exchange, a bit more like a trading platform than a traditional sportsbook.“It’s a dynamic interface, it catches your eye but it also informs you. And I think this focus on key metrics like price movement and market liquidity will appeal to high volume bettors. Our speed of bet placement has been measured at under half a second too so it’s pretty fast.“The speed of our in-play is actually very impressive. In some cases it’s ahead of the TV broadcast”“Price changes are communicated with each selection flashing either red or blue, depending on whether the price is lengthening or shortening. And those movements are happening instantly based on every bet placed on that event by all customers across the sportsbook. It’s this speed, and transparency, that will help our customers react quicker.”A roll-out of an in-play product took place before the World Cup, following months of testing; “The speed of our in-play is actually very impressive. In some cases it’s ahead of the TV broadcast. There’s also no bet delay for the vast majority of the game.” MustardBet achieves this through the implementation of a feature they have dubbed Dangerball.The concept will be similar to those familiar with asian sports betting: “Whenever there’s an increased possibility of a goal or game changing event, the match enters a pending state called Dangerball. If nothing significant happens, all bets requested during Dangerball will be confirmed, if not then bets placed during this period will be voided. We’re essentially creating a level playing field between the customer and us,” explained Brew.However, the interface and betting experience forms just a small part of what Brew believes stands MustardBet out from the crowd: “Our prices are very competitive, of course you will hear all bookies saying that, but the combination of our in-house traders’ expertise and bespoke market making technology allows us to offer very tight margins.”“If you’re better than us, then well played. We’ll see you again next time”“And these prices are available to all, even successful customers. It’s this approach to bookmaking that I think will appeal too, we are happy to accept the high turnover players, the winners. Our max-bet feature allows customers to bet the maximum stake available at that time, then instantly re-bet the max amount. We hear a lot of stories of people having accounts closed by the big boys, because they’re winning, but our approach is that we’ll take them on. If you’re better than us, then well played. We’ll see you again next time.”Not encapsulating a traditional sidebar betslip throughout the MustardBet experience, is a UI feature that is to be carried through to its next crucial development: “The next big thing for us is our accumulator product, and we’ve got some really good ideas on that.“As with everything we do, we’re aiming to make the whole process of betting on multiples much quicker. Our multiples product will adopt a similar UI approach to our current betslip – ie inline controls straight from the selection itself but with a new way to visualise your bets that we think makes more sense to the modern bettor.”An online desktop offering only composes one arm of a sportsbook however, with the instantaneous nature of everyday life meaning the MustardBet app is now live and available on both Apple and Android.“We are looking how we can communicate value to our customers as fast as possible”“It’s been a big debate for a while now whether native mobile apps or mobile optimised sites are the best way to go from a UX point of view. So while there remains no convincing case either way, for us, we just see it from the customer’s point of view. If they prefer standalone apps on their device rather than accessing betting sites via a browser then we should give them the choice of doing so.”“We’re well aware of the trends when it comes to mobile gambling and are committed to developing our mobile experiences further across the whole usage spectrum,” continued Brew. “From a marketing point of view we are looking how we can communicate value to our customers as fast as possible, price or event updates, in the most relevant way too – whether that’s app notifications, social media or other channels.”last_img read more
