q123 Feb 14
Saint Marys coach Randy Bennett offered Adam Caporn a scholarship in the summer of 2001 having never taken a recruiting trip to Australia or seen him play in person. Roberto Firmino Liverpool Jersey .Caporn accepted having never stepped foot on the campus in Moraga, California.And so it started.In every season since, the Gaels have had at least one Australian player on their roster. That list includes?Patty Mills and Matthew Dellavedova, two of Australias most revered national team players, who both have carved out NBA careers through Saint Marys.An unorthodox beginning has blossomed into more than Bennett or Caporn ever envisioned. A program-high seven Aussies will suit up for the Gaels this season.Its the 15th year in a row weve had a kid from Australia on our team, Bennett said. So whatever that is -- a pipeline, a partnership -- its a big part of our program.The Gaels wouldnt have their first ever preseason top-25 ranking (No. 19 in Thursdays coaches poll) without them. Saint Marys returned every player of note, including senior forward Dane Pineau, a Melbourne native who led the team with 8.1 rebounds per game; and junior guard Emmett Naar, a Sydney native who led the team in scoring (14.0) and assists (6.4) and was named to the all-West Coast Conference first team last season.Pineaus father, Brad, is from the States and played collegiately at Hawaii before playing professionally in Australia. Pineau knew he wanted to play college basketball in the U.S. like his father and early on, he focused in on Saint Marys because of the success Australian players had there.Theres a good chance that if [other Australian players] didnt do well guys like me wouldnt have got a chance to come over, Dane Pineau said.The Gaels Australian players didnt assimilate to American culture. They brought their own, and others in the program learned to embrace it.McKeon Pavilion, the Gaels home venue, proudly displays an Australian flag. Saint Marys students respond to big plays with Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oy, oy, oy, chants during games. The Boomers even made singing in the locker room cool. After wins, the entire team sings a song, although good luck trying to get any of their players to reveal the lyrics. They protect their celebration songs like a state secret. Pineau would only say that it was similar to a song they would sing at the Australian Institute of Sport.Winning is fun, but when you can do something with the team in locker after that, it makes the team closer, Naar said. We tried to add stuff like that. ... Im sure the Americans have more fun now that were here. It rubs off.Well, not quite everything rubs off.Caporn waited until a second Aussie, Daniel Kickert, joined him on the roster before introducing Vegemite to the team. The popular brand of yeast extract spread over toast is considered a normal part of breakfast in Australia. Caporn told ESPN.com via email that his Saint Marys teammates were always in shock that we were eating that stuff.The salty flavor never picked up among their American-born teammates. Try as they might, Naar said most of the Saint Marys students who attempt to speak with an Australian accent never quite picked that up either.Theyre terrible, it sounds British and stuff like that, Naar said. A lot of peoples understanding comes from [Outback Steakhouse] ads. Thats not quite an accurate [representation] of what were like.Bennett said it wasnt some master plan to corner the market on Australian talent.When he was hired in 2001, Bennett needed players in the way just about every newly hired coach with a late start on recruiting scrambles to assemble a roster.It was getting late in the recruiting calendar and Bennett still had two available scholarships. He wasnt to the point of desperation, but he wasnt about to ignore free advice.Russ Pennell, who is currently the head coach at Central Arkansas, was an assistant coach at Arizona State, and the Sun Devils had just completed a foreign tour in Australia.Caporn was the one player in particular who made an impression on Pennell. It wasnt enough to pique the Sun Devils interest, but Caporn did just enough to earn a referral.I never saw him play, I never met him or anything, Bennett said. I watched a video, took some peoples word on it and took him. We kind of lucked into that, then it kind of went from there.Marty Clarke, who coached Caporn at the Australia Institute of Sport, said the timing couldnt have been better for both parties.If it was somebody different, he might have hated it and the word gets back out in Australia, Dont go to Saint Marys, said Clarke, now a Gaels assistant coach. It wasnt like that. He loved it here. He thrived in it.So much so that Caporn believed his 6-foot-10 best friend would love it too. He suggested Bennett recruit Kickert, who went on to become the schools all-time leading scorer until Dellavedova surpassed him.Theres no need for luck or happenstance now.Saint Marys track record is well established within Australian basketball circles, and it keeps the Boomers coming.It certainly helps that Caporn, who after serving a stint as an assistant coach under Bennett, returned to Australia as an associate coach at the Centre of Excellence. Its essentially the rebranded AIS and it is the Australian equivalent to an American playing for USA Basketballs youth teams.His presence helps, but Caporn said Aussies continue to want to play at Saint Marys for other reasons too.The school and community embraced us wholeheartedly from Day 1, Caporn told ESPN.com via email. Secondly, I think Coach Bennett and the leadership at Saint Marys have similar values that Aussie athletes and teams have -- such as team-first and toughness. This meant that the Aussie imprint was not only embraced but reinforced.Its difficult to distinguish what had more influence, Bennetts preferred playing style or the Australian players blending in the system. The Gaels are suited for international play -- lots of ball screens, and ball movement that puts a premium on good passing and good shooting.It suits the Australian kids strength, Clarke said. We can play to their strength, which is not their out-and-out athleticism. Its not high-powered, one-on-one basketball.It is, however, good enough for Saint Marys to continue to seek out more Australian players in the future.Everyone who has come over -- I think were on our 18th right now -- theyve had good careers, Bennett said. Theyre not all pros like Delly and Patty, but they all fit. They had a lot to do with the culture of our program, which is pretty good right now. Theyve had their fingerprints all over that. Trent Alexander-Arnold Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Andrew Robertson Liverpool Jersey . Self was acquired from the Buffalo Bandits in a trade for Alex Hill midway through last season, and made his debut in Rochester on March 16, 2013. http:///...rn-Liverpool-Jersey/ . The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries.Former Chelsea midfielder Gus Poyet relives his greatest game in English football - the 2000 FA Cup semi-final victory over Newcastle at Wembley. The Uruguayan enjoyed a trophy-laden four-year spell at Stamford Bridge, winning the UEFA Cup Winners Cup, Super Cup and the Community Shield. But it was the role he played in sealing the clubs passage to the first FA Cup final of the new millennium which continues to hold significance.In an exclusive feature with Sky Sports Digital Media, Poyet looks back on the afternoon where he sealed Chelseas place at a second FA Cup final in three years, following their victory in 1997.He struck 17 minutes into the contest to give the Blues the lead at the break but Rob Lee hauled the Magpies level with midway through the second half. Sadio Mane Jersey. But it was to be Poyet who had the final say, heading home Jon Harleys cross 18 minutes from time to cap of the perfect match-winning performance.And the Blues would go on to lift the trophy later on that season, with Roberto Di Matteos 73rd-minute strike earning a 1-0 victory against Aston Villa in the last Cup final played at the old Wembley.Hit the video at the top of the story to see Poyet reminisce about his greatest game!
