We understand that it’s in the mind of so many people, but it’s a long shot so we have to be ready and prepare hard for this,” he said. “There are so many teams which built their team and they’re almost there, but our experience is there, they know how to win, they understand how to win.

TORONTO — Large crowds, especially in confined spaces, can turn deadly in the case of a security incident or panic. Some expert tips for staying safe:— Retain situational awareness i.e.: know what’s going on around you— Have several escape routes— Know where the nearest exit is, including alternatives— In the event of panic or stampede, stay calm, don’t fight crowd, work toward the periphery— Suffocation can occur even while upright, so try to ensure you can breathe — If you fall and can’t get up, roll up in a ball and try to keep from being trampled.— Have a designated meeting place in case of separation from friends and familyQuote: “These are really sobering things that nobody really wants to talk about (but) it’s important to have a dialogue about what do you do when a bad thing happens.” _Russ Simons, managing partner Venue Solutions GroupSOURCE: York University, Venue Solutions GroupThe Canadian Press
Ohio State has a hard time losing when center Jantel Lavender records a double-double. Lavender’s 22-point, 22-rebound game against Indiana on Wednesday was her eighth of the season and 65th of her career — good for more than any other active Big Ten player. The Buckeyes are 8-0 this season and 54-11 over her four-year tenure when she registers double-digit points and rebounds in a game. The 22 rebounds were a career-high for the 6-foot-4 center. “I take a lot of pride in (rebounding). I know that when we rebound, when we get fast breaks and we can push the ball because I throw good outlet passes and (point guard) Sammy (Prahalis) is a great outlet player,” Lavender said. “I know if I get her the ball, we can get fast break layups and we like to play fast. It’s fun.” Lavender was named preseason Big Ten Player of the Year and came into Wednesday night second in the country in scoring at a clip of 24.7 points per game. Her 11.3 rebounds per game lead the Big Ten. The Cleveland native has scored double-digit points in every game she has played going back to middle school. Lavender’s current collegiate streak of 116 games of scoring in double-figures is only nine games shy of Mississippi State’s LaToya Thomas’ NCAA record of 125 consecutive games. “I just know that my teammates need me to rebound. I know that if I’m rebounding well then we’re flowing a little bit better,” Lavender said. “I know if I can get those offensive rebounds and defensive rebounds we can run into our offense a lot quicker.” Suffocating defense Only once has coach Jim Foster’s man-to-man defense allowed an opponent to shoot 50 percent from the field this season. It was against Geno Auriemma’s UConn Huskies, who tied the NCAA record for most consecutive wins Dec. 19. “Our energy on defense is terrific and it’s a good thing for us. It just gives us different looks that we can throw at another team’s point guard,” Foster said. “We can throw five or six different people of various lengths and quickness” at them. Indiana shot 36.5 percent on field goals Wednesday, largely because of Foster’s pressure scheme that focused on switches and close-outs on shooters. Lavender’s length on the interior prevented the Hoosiers from getting many good looks in the lane. Sophomore guard Amber Stokes provided 15 valuable minutes off the bench, scoring a career-high 10 points and providing the Buckeyes with energy with her on-ball defending on the perimeter. “I love playing defense,” Stokes said. “When coach puts me in the game, I’m going to pressure the ball.”
Tim Adams is in the midst of his 16th season as the full-time equipment manager for the OSU men’s hockey team, and 18th with the program overall.Credit: Courtesy of OSU athleticsTim Adams has never ventured into what he calls the “real world.” In his 18th season with the Ohio State men’s hockey team, the equipment manager has never seen the necessity.The man with a degree in natural resources has made his career within the confines of ice rinks, handling hockey equipment for the Buckeyes.Adams’ career path began at the OSU Ice Rink where he was a student employee under longtime manager Duke Johnson. Shortly after graduation, Adams received an offer he wasn’t expecting: become OSU’s equipment manager for the second half of the 1997-98 season.“I thought, ‘Hey, this will be a fun thing to do for a few years, then I’ll get out in the real world and get a real job,” Adams said. “Eighteen years later, here I am.”The job presented itself when the Buckeyes’ former equipment manager left the team mid-season to dress for the now-defunct Columbus Chill, OSU’s then-coach John Markell said.On New Year’s Eve of 1997, Markell, shorthanded, asked Johnson to serve as temporary equipment manager during a road series against Michigan. Shortly after, Markell requested an equipment manager for the rest of the season. Johnson recommended Adams for the position.“He was here the longest, had the most experience and he liked hockey,” Johnson said of Adams. “He probably had as much hockey experience as any of the kids working here.”Adams learned basic skate sharpening and skate repair skills during his time at the OSU Ice Rink, but had to familiarize himself with some of the job’s non-technical requirements such as operating a budget and ordering custom equipment, he said.The learning curve brought valuable lessons. After packing heavy for the first couple road trips, Adams gradually realized what he needed to take with the team and what he could leave in Columbus, he said. Fellow equipment managers from opposing teams guided his development, Adams said. “The equipment guys are kind of a fraternity in their own right,” Adams said. “We aren’t winning or losing the games for our teams.”For the Buckeyes, winning wasn’t a problem once Adams joined the team. After going 9-10-1 through New Year’s weekend, the Buckeyes went 18-3-1 for the remainder of the regular season.The second-half surge was enough to boost OSU in its only Frozen Four appearance in school history. After the season, Markell switched the equipment manager’s position from part-time to full-time, he said. Adams was offered to continue with the team. “There was no thought of ever having (Adams) replaced and I was very happy that he wanted to take it on full-time,” Markell said. “I think he was excited about the direction of the program.”Markell, who was replaced in 2010 and now coaches two Ohio AAA Blue Jackets girls hockey teams, said Adams’ success was a result of his organization and passion for the game.OSU coach Steve Rohlik, who replaced former Buckeye coach Mark Osiecki in 2013, is the third coach with whom Adams has worked. He echoed Markell’s thoughts. “He’ll die for this program, he’s passionate for this program, he’ll do what it takes,” Rohlik said. “That’s just the person he is.”Despite the turnover of coaches, Adams maintains his daily structure. During the week, Adams is at the rink by 8 a.m. and out at about 4:30 p.m. His shift is extended on gamedays. He pulls double-duty for home games, as he’s responsible for handling the visiting team’s laundry as well as OSU’s. The process can delay his departure until 12:30 a.m. on Fridays and 10:30 p.m. on Saturdays. Adams made $60,524 in 2013 — $14,180 was overtime pay.The players he accommodates are appreciative of his work. “He’s always been great,” senior forward Matt Johnson said. “Whenever you need something, he’s always got it for you.”As the longest-tenured member of the Buckeyes , Adams has done his best to meet the needs of the players, a task sometimes complicated by unusual requests.“It’s always to do with skates,” Adams said. “When you get that weird stuff to do with players, it’s always to do with skates.” Adams meets the needs of his team without making personal judgments, he said. In-game requests to change a skate’s cut are met with nods, not inquiries. An hour after a midweek practice, it was a request for new shorts that took Adams’ attention. Prior to the request, Adams’ phone had buzzed three times. For a man who works outside the “real world,” his job seems quite demanding.
Genoa boss Ivan Juric expressed delight at his dream debut after ending the perfect Juventus start saying “We pounced at the right moment.”Juric was brought back to replace Davide Ballardini, who was dismissed from the job following a poor run of games“I am back to doing what I love,” said Juric in his Press conference via Football Italia.“I saw positive things today and we have a big margin for improvement. I also liked the first half, as the team showed patience and pounced at the right moment, although we could’ve played with more quality.Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“The lads had the right spirit and we’ve got the foundations to build on this going forward.”Genoa’s position in the table – considering they have a game in hand to play against Milan – was not that bad, so the decision to fire Ballardini was surprising.“It’s going to be very difficult against Udinese, as they are particularly dangerous away from home on the counter. I have confidence and we’ll be working more on self-belief.”
