Opponent preview: What to know about North Carolina

first_img Published on April 13, 2019 at 12:13 pm Contact Andrew: aegraham@syr.edu | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+ No. 9 Syracuse (7-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) visits No. 18 North Carolina (7-4, 1-1) in the Orange’s regular-season conference finale. A win potentially keeps SU out of the new play-in game, between the four and five seeds, in the ACC tournament. A loss guarantees an appearance in the Apr. 25 contest.Here’s what to know about the Tar Heels.All-time series: Syracuse leads, 17-8Last time they played: At the Carrier Dome almost a year ago to the day, then-freshman midfielder Brendan Curry scored two goals in the final 1:34 of the game to force overtime. He then assisted on Brendan Bomberry’s overtime winner. The win sealed SU’s No. 1 seed in the ACC tournament and it’s second-straight undefeated conference season.The North Carolina report: Though the Tar Heels have hung behind the rest of the ACC in the national polls, UNC is the only team besides Virginia with a chance to finish 3-1 in conference (UVA holds the tiebreak). Three of their four losses came against the Top 10.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the Tar Heels have one of the best offenses in the conference, churning out 19.73 points a game, No. 17 nationally. UNC’s 13 goals a game ranks 14th.Still, North Carolina struggles to get the ball to its offense at times, winning barely more than half of faceoffs (50.3 percent). In turn, the Tar Heels scoring defense is good (9.91 goals per game), but not a unit to smother an opposing attack line.How Syracuse beats UNC: Hope one of Jakob Phaup and Danny Varello gets hot and ride them to victory.Syracuse demonstrated how it can beat a dominant offense when it muzzled Cornell on Tuesday: Deny the ball. Phaup dominated at the faceoff X and the Orange in turn ran long possession after long possession, generating goals and keeping the ball away from it’s defense at the same time.If the Orange can do the same against the Tar Heels — command the ball as much as possible — it should have a very clear path to victory. And with Phaup, the country’s fifth-most effective faceoff man, it’s a viable plan, too.Stat to know: -3 — Syracuse’s conference goal differential. In avoiding the four-five ACC game, there are two scenarios in which SU gets stuck in a three way tie with Duke and Notre Dame for the second, third and fourth or third, fourth and fifth seeds, respectively. If it comes to that, the tiebreak is conference goal differential, where the Orange lack. Notre Dame, still to host North Carolina in a week, sit at -5, currently and Duke, which plays Virginia on Saturday, is +3 in goal differential.Player to watch: Nicky Solomon, freshman attack, No. 5The true freshman and younger brother of Syracuse attack Nate Solomon is third on the Tar Heels with points (24) and tied for second in goals (16). Last Saturday against Virginia, he recorded his first career hat trick and ninth multi-point game. Commentslast_img read more

The best Tennis Player in the World Novak Dokovic visited Pyramids in Visoko

first_imgThe best tennis player in the world, Novak Đoković, arrived in Sarajevo on Monday, and accompanied by the founder of the “Archaeological Park: Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun” Foundation, Semir Osmaganić, he visited the pyramids in Visoko. As confirmed to Fena news agency from the Foundation, Djokovic’s arrival was prepared for two months and he so far visited the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun, the Foundation Museum and the prehistoric underground tunnels of Ravna. Djokovic is an extremely spiritual man who is interested in energy and spirituality, which is why he decided to visit the Bosnian Valley of the Pyramids, and it is planned that he will stay in BiH until Wednesday, accompanied by his parents.“Bosnian valley of pyramids is the largest world complex of pyramidal structures and an archaeological phenomenon that should be researched intensely.”This was one of the conclusions from international scientific conference in which 55 leading experts from 13 countries of the world participated. Today, this research is the largest global archaeological project that attracts dozens of thousands of tourists to Visoko every year.In addition to the Bosnian Pyramid of Sun and a complex of tunnels under the valley of pyramids whose electromagnetic, ultrasound and ionized energies have healing features, the Archaeological and Tourist Park Ravne 2 was opened in this are recently. This park covers around 40.000 square meters and offers a whole series of new contents to the visitors.“Archaeological and Tourist Park Ravne 2 is something new in Europe. This unique park is a combination of archaeological, tourist, recreational and energetic contents. We turned neglected wetlands into a beautiful natural ambience. There are yoga platforms, areas for meditation and relaxation. People feel comfortable here. When you arrange an area that has been neglected for 100 years, the soil starts breathing again and paying you back multiply. It is an area where soul gets to rest,” said Semir Osmanagić.When entering the complex of tunnels, visitors notice that the temperature is significantly lower than on the outside. Another interesting fact is that temperature in the tunnel is always the same – twelve degrees. It is scientifically proven that concentration of negative ions, which clear the atmosphere from bacteria and viruses, is significantly higher in the tunnel than usual, which explains the beneficial effect of the tunnel on human body.“A healing chamber is located 220 meters from the entrance to the underground tunnel labyrinth Ravne. People who have problems such as asthma, high blood pressure, elevated sugar and similar issues can solve them precisely by staying in this healing chamber. When we enter the tunnel, our body has no enemies, and our cells can work in peace and renew our body without disturbances,” Osmanagić said.After eleven years, this project became the most active archaeological locations in the world. Every year, hundreds of volunteers from all around the world come to Visoko, together with dozens of experts. In the past seven years, 2.350 volunteers from 62 countries from six continents actively worked in this area.Tunnels Ravne are located only several kilometers from the entrance to Visoko and the entire complex is open for public 365 days a year.last_img read more
