Lamolinara’s strong title-game performance not enough to lift Syracuse past Duke

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ PHILADELPHIA — Dominic Lamolinara has been through the grind of college lacrosse. He’s played for two storied programs — first Maryland, now Syracuse — in two hotbeds of lacrosse. He’s been a walk-on and a transfer, a starter and a backup goaltender, playing the position with more pressure than any other.And after Monday, he can add a strong performance in a national championship game to his already crowded resume.“He really played solid, especially in the second half,” SU head coach John Desko said. “He not only made good saves, made some spectacular saves, some one-on-one saves that allowed us to be in the game today.”Lamolinara made 11 saves — eight in the first half as his team led and three in the second as he faced a barrage of shots in Syracuse’s 16-10 NCAA championship loss to Duke.He opened up the game by stuffing midfielder Jake Tripucka at the doorstep in the opening minute, but for the most part the Orange defense did a good job keeping the Blue Devils away from the net.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLater in the quarter, though, Lamolinara made perhaps his best save of the game when Duke midfielder David Lawson used a spin move to get free at the net. Lamolinara made one of the one-on-one saves that Desko raved about to preserve SU’s shutout first quarter.“Yeah, they stopped us,” Duke attack Josh Dionne said, “but I think it was more we were stopping ourselves because we were just trying to make a play instead of playing the way we know how to.”Lamolinara turned away eight of the 13 shots on goal he saw in the first half, but was left out to dry in the second. There was nothing he could do when the Blue Devils won 11-of-17 faceoffs, his offense rushed possessions and he saw an onslaught of 23 shots, 14 of which found their way on goal. A game where Lamolinara stopped less than 50 percent of the shots he saw, felt like a victory anyway.The biggest victory of all, though, on a day that Syracuse lost the biggest game of its season, was the affirmation that Lamolinara could get it done on any stage. Since taking over for Bobby Wardwell at halftime of a win over Johns Hopkins on March 16, he’s passed every test thrown in front of him.He starred in the Big East tournament, backing an otherworldly defense, and played three stellar NCAA tournament games before proving his mettle again on Monday.“A couple (shots) in these playoff games could have gone in and we might have been watching today,” Desko said. “But fortunately we weren’t, and we had the opportunity to play in this game. I think a lot of it had to do with Dom.” Comments Published on May 27, 2013 at 9:00 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2center_img Related Stories DEVIL’S X: Faceoffs doom Syracuse as Duke beats Orange 16-10 in national championship gameDuke’s plethora of offensive weapons one-ups Syracuse at own gameWilson: Seniors Marasco, Megill leave behind polished legacy despite loss in championship gameRice carries Syracuse offense as Orange builds 5-goal lead, fades away in second half of NCAA title gamelast_img read more

A gallant effort by Clippers falls short in 90-87 loss to Memphis

first_imgThe Clippers had done much better than anyone could have anticipated in the five games they had played without the services of the injured Blake Griffin. In going 4-1, three of the victories came against Western Conference playoff-bound teams.But none of them were the Memphis Grizzlies, who came to town Monday fresh off a thrilling victory at Portland. Memphis entered play in second place in the Western Conference standings, so a victory over them would have been almost too much to ask.It was, as it turned out, as Memphis held off the Clippers 90-87 in a tremendously exciting game before 19,131 at Staples Center.The Clippers led 22-21 after one quarter, 44-38 at halftime and 68-66 after three quarters. The Clippers were down by just three points with 3:18 to play in the game, but when Courtney Lee buried a 3-pointer with 2:28 left, Memphis held its largest lead at 88-80 and the Clippers couldn’t overcome that. “We’ve gotta give him room to maneuver,” he said.Paul was bummed.“We gave ourselves a chance,” he said. “We had the ball. You at least have to get a shot up, not a turnover. That’s on me. Last play, just turned the ball over. All I can think about is if I was at home watching this game, I’d say, ‘This dummy didn’t get a shot up.’ In that situation, you’ve got to give yourself a chance.”The Grizzlies’ Zach Randolph praised his teammates for forcing the turnover.“Chris is special,” he said of Paul “We knew he was going to have the ball, but Courtney and Mike did a good job on the defensive end.”Randolph then applauded his entire team.“Coming in here and getting a win is always tough, and tonight was one of those games — especially on a back-to-back,” Randolph said. “We showed a lot of heart and resilience and kept playing.“Guys stuck together and everybody contributed. That’s what we have to do. It was a team win.”Paul scored a game-high 30 points on 13-of-22 shooting. He also had 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and four turnovers. Jamal Crawford scored 15 and was the only other Clipper to score in double figures, but he shot just 4 of 15 from the field. DeAndre Jordan had nine points, 17 rebounds and two blocks. Spencer Hawes scored nine, but the 7-foot-1 post had just one rebound; he did block three shots.The Clippers (37-20) had their four-game winning streak snapped.Conley led the Grizzlies (41-14) with 18 points, Jeff Green scored 16, Marc Gasol had 14 points and six rebounds, Tony Allen scored 10, Lee nine and Randolph had just seven points with 10 rebounds; Randolph shot 2 of 12 from the field.The Clippers shot 44.3 percent, the Grizzlies 40.7.The loss notwithstanding, the Clippers are 4-2 without arguably their best player in Griffin. Rivers was told post game that he has to be happy about that.“I was, until we lost this game,” he said. “I’m competitive just like everyone else. And I just believe we should still win the games, and we can’t worry about who’s not playing. We’ve gotta win games.”The Clippers now embark on a four-game road trip starting Wednesday at Houston. But they almost did, scoring the next seven points to pull within 88-87. Then when Chris Paul tried to work for one last shot that could have won the game, he was harassed by Lee and had the ball stolen by Mike Conley with just 1.5 seconds left.Conley was fouled and made two free throws for the game’s final points. The Clippers did not get off a final shot as their length-of-the-court pass was intercepted at the buzzer.Coach Doc Rivers said the turnover by Paul was created partly because Paul’s teammates didn’t give him enough room to operate.“There was just no spacing,” Rivers said. “Listen, it was a random play because we didn’t have a timeout. It was a fast break for the most part, but I thought our spacing was horrendous. And I told our guys that at the end of the game.”Indeed, he did. Matt Barnes, who had eight points and seven rebounds, concurred.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
