That means bus travel and a second look at opponents who saw you once in person and probably a few other times on film.</p> <p>Two, keeping the hype in perspective is key to understanding the task at hand. So just because the Bucs ran the table in the first half of Sunshine State Conference play doesn&rsquo;t mean they&rsquo;re not going to get their opponents&rsquo; best this time around.</p> <p>That time around begins 4 p.m. Saturday when Barry (16-1, 8-0 SSC) plays at Saint Leo (11-9, 3-5). The game will be carried on the Buccaneers Broadcast Radio Network.</p> <p>&ldquo;Any time you start the second line in the league, no matter what place you&rsquo;re in, it&rsquo;s about the mental focus,&rdquo; Bucs assistant coach Justin Furr said. &ldquo;Now it&rsquo;s all about which team can carry out the game plan and execute for 40 minutes.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry has not won in the Bowman Center since Feb. 27, 2010. That&rsquo;s a string of five straight losses in Saint Leo. Saint Leo is 8-3 at home, but has lost two of its past three in the Bowman Center. All history aside, this Buccaneers team is different. They&rsquo;ve proven that over the first half of the season.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re a different team,&rdquo; Furr said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s a new year. Last year, they swept us. They&rsquo;re one of the toughest teams to play. But it&rsquo;s about game-to-game preparation and being mentally ready to play. I&rsquo;m big on treating every game the same, and treating every opponent the same.&rdquo;</p> <p>Saturday&rsquo;s opponent is built around forward Ron Foxx, who had 14 points, two blocks and five rebounds against the Bucs in Miami Shores in early December. Foxx leads the Lions in scoring at 15.9 points per game, while pulling down 5.4 rebounds.</p> <p>&ldquo;Our post guys are really going to have to get focused on doing their job and trying to stop him,&rdquo; Furr said.</p> <p>Lions guard Devin Crisosto went four of seven from the field, finishing with 10 points in 23 minutes, and forward Cale Girten had 11 points the first time these two teams met. Trey Griseck had 10 points and seven boards in 24 minutes. Crisosto is averaging 9.8 points, and is the team&rsquo;s leader in assists.</p> <p>Saint Leo is scoring 65.2 points per game, while holding teams to 61.3. The Bucs are averaging 87.9 points offensively, but were held to 64 in an eight-point win over the Lions in Miami Shores.</p> <p>As for what&rsquo;s transpired recently, the Bucs are coming off a home game in which all five starters scored in double figures. That followed a road game along the same West Florida trek in which Barry overcame a late 17-point deficit to win in two overtimes.</p> <p>&ldquo;It helps anytime you have an upper classmen team going into the second half of the season,&rdquo; Furr said. &ldquo;They have more of an investment.&rdquo;</p> <p>Still, this is fundamental Saint Leo we&rsquo;re talking about. This is an opponent whose regimented system is polished without all the flash. This is a system that has worked.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re going into the game with, in my mind, not one the best coaches in the conference, but the country,&rdquo; Furr said of Lions coach Lance Randall. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s trying to get his guys motivated to play. What better motivation than to knock off the No. 3 team in the country.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><span style="color: #ac1a2f;"><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=197998&amp;streamType=audio" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ac1a2f;">BUCCANEERS RADIO BROADCAST</span></a></span></strong></p> <p><a href="http://stats.statbroadcast.com/statmonitr/?id=66265" target="_blank">LIVE STATS</a></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/saintleo/full.htm?eventId=197800&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank">LIVE STREAM</a></p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong> Barry used a strong second half to beat Tampa at home, completing the first half of Sunshine State Conference play ...

Still, there's another month and a grind left ahead as basketball moves into February Frenzy.</p> <p>No. 3 Barry University men's basketball team used a 63.6 percent three-point shooting effort in the second half to overcome a game Tampa team that played without conscience throughout to prevail, 99-93. The win improved Barry's record to 16-1 overall, 8-0 in the SSC through the first round of league games. The second half begins at Saint Leo 4 p.m. Saturday.</p> <p>The Spartans (11-7, 4-4) led by as many as 11 midway through the first half, but a streaky shooting performance keyed by Barry's Anders Haas lifted the Bucs after the break.</p> <p>Haas scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half, going six of seven from the field, and had three assists that led to eight more points -- two of his dimes resulted in threes by Yunio Barrueta and Juan Ferrales. Haas hit a triple with 13:48 to go to give Barry a five-point lead. He buried another 1:45 later to push the lead to six.</p> <p>But Tampa battled back to tie the game -- one that featured eight lead changes and six ties -- at the 5:10 mark before Barrueta hit two straight buckets. Deric Hill's steal led to a Ferrales triple in transition to extend the Bucs lead back to eight.</p> <p>The Spartans whittled it down to five on Jordan Davis' layup with 52 seconds remaining before Hill sank two free throws. Davis and Barry's Adrian Gonzalez each hit two free throws to keep the Bucs in front by seven before Tampa's Austin Rettig canned a 3-pointer with 21 seconds left to trim Barry's lead to four.</p> <p>Haas sank two of his next four free throw attempts, the latter coming with 12 seconds on the clock to cushion Barry's lead to six, and Hill sank two from the stripe to seal it.</p> <p>Barrueta had 25 points, six boards and two steals. Savad Garner scored eight of his 12 points in the first half, and grabbed seven rebounds. Ferrales had 15 points, six assists and two steals. Hill had 10 points, seven assists and three steals.</p> <p>Eugene McCrory had 26 points, 13 boards, and was 10 of 15 from the field for the Spartans. Davis had 26 points, eight rebounds, six assists and a block, playing all 40 minutes. Rettig finished with 24 points, and Othniel Shelton had 10 points and five rebounds.</p> <p>The Buccaneers were outrebounded for the third time in the last five games, losing the battle on the boards, 36-29. Barry was outscored, 42-32, in the paint. But the Bucs forced 17 Tampa turnovers, converting them into 22 points. Barry had 12 turnovers, allowing the Spartans to turn them into 14 points.</p> <p>Barry shot 53.6 percent from the field. Tampa hit 50.7 percent of its field goals. The Bucs went 13 of 26 from beyond the arc for 50 percent. The Spartans were 12 of 25 for 48 percent. Both teams shot over 81 percent from the free throw line.</p> <p><strong>TIP-INS</strong></p> <p>Deric Hill's three steals moved him within one of eight all-time at Barry. He has 117 in his two-year career. All the other Buccaneer leaders in the top 10 played three or more seasons.</p> <p>The 99 points marked the ninth time this year the Bucs have scored 90 or more.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mb0128.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25633Wed, 28 Jan 2015 23:14:00 GMTNo. 3/4 Men's Hoops Tangle with Tampa Wednesday<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25623___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. &ndash; This much the Buccaneers know about Tampa: the Spartans have one of the best big men in the league.</p> <p>Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball team is about to get an up-close look at 6-foot-8, 260-pound senior center Eugene McCrory as the No. 3/4 Bucs (15-1, 7-0 Sunshine State Conference) host Tampa (11-6, 4-3) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Health &amp; Sports Center. The game will be carried on the Buccaneer Broadcasting Network.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/VnJS_OQ3Zso" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>McCrory is averaging 17.2 points per game, which ranks fourth in the league. The University of Central Florida transfer is second in rebounding at 9.8 per game. He&rsquo;s shooting a league-best 68.6 percent from the field, going 120 of 175 from the floor</p> <p>And no, none of them are 3-pointers.</p> <p>&nbsp;&ldquo;McCrory scores in the post as well as anyone we will see all year,&rdquo; Barry second-year assistant coach Justin Furr said. &ldquo;Our bigs have a tough assignment trying to contain him, and make it tough as possible.&rdquo;</p> <p>Last week, Buccaneers head coach Butch Estes said he wanted to improve his team&rsquo;s interior play. Wednesday&rsquo;s matchup with McCrory beckons for that. &nbsp;</p> <p>Of course, the Spartans aren&rsquo;t limited to its strong post presence. Senior guard Jordan Davis, a week removed from being named SSC Player of the Week, is averaging 15.1 points, 7.1 rebounds and 6.8 assists per game. He is second in the league in assists behind Barry senior point guard Deric Hill. Davis is shooting 90.7 percent from the free throw line, which ranks third behind Barry junior guard Anders Haas. All the more impressive, Davis is fifth in the league in rebounding &ndash; <em>as a 5-10 guard, mind you </em>&ndash; behind Barry forwards Yunio Barrueta and Jevoni Robinson. &nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;Davis is one of the toughest guards for us to defend, dating back to last season,&rdquo; Furr said. &ldquo;He has a tendency to always make the big play, and really does a great job of finding open guys and hurting our pressure.&rdquo;</p> <p>Last year, Davis had 17 points and 10 assists in Barry&rsquo;s win at the Health &amp; Sports Center. He scored 15 points, had eight assists, five rebounds and two steals in the Spartans&rsquo; win in Tampa.</p> <p>&ldquo;Tampa has the best one-two punch in the league with McCrory and Davis,&rdquo; Furr said.</p> <p>Spartans sophomore swingman Austin Rettig is averaging 14.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, while shooting 45.3 from the field and 80.4 percent from the stripe. He is seventh in the league in rebounding.</p> <p>&ldquo;We have our hands full tomorrow night,&rdquo; Furr said.</p> <p>But the Buccaneers have been game for challenges all season, overcoming deficits to prevail, racing out to large leads to win comfortably and making just enough to plays to win tight games. The Bucs have won six of their conference games by nine points or less.</p> <p>Wednesday is another test.</p> <p><strong><span style="color: #ac1a2f;"><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=190071&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ac1a2f;">BUCCANEERS BROADCASTING NETWORK</span></a></span></strong></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/stats.htm?eventId=190071&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank"><strong><span style="color: #ac1a2f;">LIVE STATS</span></strong></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT</strong>: Barry overcame a 17-point deficit in the final 6:59 to win in double overtime at Eckerd ...

He also went a combined 15 of 15 from the line in the two victories for the No. 3-rannked Buccaneers.</p> <p>A preseason Honorable Mention All-American by the Sporting News, Barrueta had 22 points, eight boards and three blocks, while going a career-best 11 of 11 from the free throw line at No. 16 Lynn Wednesday.

PETERSBURG, Fla. -- In yet another form of adversity, Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball found a way.</p> <p>The No. 3-ranked Buccaneers overcame a 17-point deficit &ndash; the largest of the season -- with 6:59 to play to pull out a wild one at the McArthur Center, 111-108.</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s 111 points tied the second highest scoring total in school history behind the 115 the Bucs scored against Puerto Rico-Humacao on Dec. 12, 1999. Barry also scored 111 points on two other occasions, most recently against Puerto Rico-Mayaguez last season.</p> <p>&ldquo;We were on the brink of falling off, but we found a way,&rdquo; Barry coach Butch Estes said. &ldquo;For 30 minutes, they dictated the tempo of this game. You talk about a clinic. We couldn&rsquo;t stop &rsquo;em.&rdquo;</p> <p>A relentless pressure defense effort that appeared to be costly for the first 35 minutes of the game finally paid off late for the Buccaneers, who came up with big steals and forced turnovers to get themselves back in the game. Barry (15-1, 7-0 Sunshine State Conference) forced 17 turnovers, 13 of them coming after the 10:56 mark of the second half.</p> <p>&ldquo;When we were running our traps in the backcourt, before they got it past half court it was working, but once they got it past half court, they were able to move it to the opposite side corner for a shot,&rdquo; Bucs assistant coach Mike Bradley said. &ldquo;Then we were able to move it up, and make the trap effective before they got in their half court set.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry used a 19-3 run to force overtime.</p> <p>Arie Williams&rsquo; steal and three-pointer brought the Buccaneers within 10. Juan Ferrales&rsquo; steal led to a Jevoni Robinson dunk with 3:51 left in regulation to cut the Tritons&rsquo; lead to 80-77. Ferrales came up with another steal on the ensuing possession and scored to make it a one-point game.</p> <p>&ldquo;We just scrambled,&rdquo; Estes said.</p> <p>Eckerd (9-8, 3-5) built its lead back to five on Trevon Young&rsquo;s layup with 2:17 to play, but the Bucs got within one on three straight free throws by Williams at the 1:37 mark. Williams buried a triple 36 seconds later to put the Buccaneers ahead by two, but Young tied the game with 41 seconds left. Both teams missed triples to send it to overtime.</p> <p>Adrian Gonzalez, who was a cool nine of 10 from the field to finish with 21 points, scored at the 3:27 mark in overtime to give Barry a three-point lead. He sank two free throws 50 seconds later to keep the Bucs ahead, 94-91. But Jerrick Stevenson hit a three with 50 seconds on the clock to cap a 5-0 Tritons run that lifted Eckerd ahead, 97-95. Gonzalez stuck a jumper with 36 seconds remaining tied the game to force a second overtime.</p> <p>Deric Hill&rsquo;s layup and another by Yunio Barrueta put the Bucs in front by four 42 seconds into the second extra session. Eckerd&rsquo;s Kendall Roberts tied the game at 101-101 before Williams delivered with another big three at the 2:46 mark. Williams sank a free throw to make it a four-point Bucs lead, but Eckerd responded again when Kevin Walsh scored in the paint and Jerrick Stevenson hit a free throw to cut it to 109-109 with 37 seconds left. Barrueta sank two free throws 23 seconds later, and the Tritons&rsquo; final triple try was off the mark, giving Barry its third win at the McArthur Center in the last four years in a game decided by three points or less. &nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;When you&rsquo;re third in the country, you&rsquo;re getting shots from everybody,&rdquo; Estes said, who jokingly kidded he deserved a raise after working overtime. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s a really good win against a really good team.&rdquo;</p> <p>Stevenson had 23 points, and Young 21 for the Tritons, who were 11 of 25 from long range. Eckerd outrebounded Barry, 45-34, marking the second opponent which has beaten the Bucs on the glass.</p> <p>Williams finished with 16 points, going four of seven from behind the 3-point line. His four triples matched a career-best. Ferrales finished with 20 points and two steals, and Barrueta had 25 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks and a steal. He was eight of 16 from the floor. Hill had 19 points, nine assists and four steals.</p> <p>The Buccaneers were 15 of 31 from long distance. The 15 3-pointers fell one shy of the school record set on Dec. 16, 2011 versus Trinity.&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;We feel extremely fortunate to pull out a win because night in and night out we&rsquo;re going to get every team&rsquo;s best shot,&rdquo; Bradley said. &ldquo;We&rsquo;ve become a team that people really get up to play now. They bring their A game when they&rsquo;re facing Barry, and prepare harder. From our standpoint, each preparation day becomes crucial to stay focused and get ready to receive each team&rsquo;s best shot, and give &rsquo;em our best shot right back.&rdquo;</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mb0124.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25610Sat, 24 Jan 2015 20:44:00 GMTNo. 3/4 Men's Hoops Hits Road to Eckerd <img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25607___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>In two of the last three trips to Eckerd, the tension in the McArthur Center has been razor sharp.&nbsp;</p> <p>Barry won two of those three games by a total of five points -- one of them being decided by a gamewinning three-pointer with four seconds left.</p> <p>"It's tough to win on that court," Buccaneers assistant coach Ryan Saunders said. "They play very, very well at home. Just their physicality in the past allowed them to stay in games. We've been lucky to go up there and steal a couple. Hopefully it's not as close this year, but we're going to have to come to play for all 40 minutes. We'll have to play through a lot of adversity going up there."</p> <p>No. 3/4 Barry (14-1, 6-0 Sunshine State Conference) will make another trip to St. Petersburg to meet Eckerd (9-7, 3-4) at 4 p.m. Saturday in a game to be carried on the <strong><span style="color: #ac1a2f;">Buccaneers Broadcast Network</span></strong> radio stream.</p> <p>"Eckerd's one of the most physical teams, not only in the conference, but in the nation," Saunders said. "They beat us up twice last year, and gave us a rough game in the conference tournament. Their style of play is they're going to try to overpower you, pound it inside, get to the free throw line and really try and beat you up the entire game on both ends."</p> <p>Eckerd's Jerrick Stevenson is averaging 14 points and 5.5 rebounds per game. E.J. Moody is the league's best free throw shooter. He's shooting 94.7 percent from the line, where he is 36 of 38 on the season. Malcolm Brunner Jr. (9.7 ppg), Kevin Walsh (8.9) and Ray Darnell (8.8) are also capable scorers. Walsh is also shooting over 90 percent from the free throw line.</p> <p>"They have a good point guard in E.J. Moody, who runs the show and is a terrific shooter," Saunders said. "Jerrick Stevenson is one of the best scorers in this league. He can create his own shot, and hits very, very tough shots. They have big guys inside. Ray Darnell gave us some fits last year. He's a tough guy. He's going to be a load, tough to match up with."</p> <p>Needless to say, low-post matchups will be big in this one, especially on the glass. The Buccaneers have outrebounded 14 of their 15 opponents this year. Barry ranks ninth in the country in rebound margin, bettering its opponents by 9.3 boards per game. But the Bucs narrowly outrebounded Lynn Wednesday on the road, 44-42. Eckerd is averaging 35.3 rebounds per game.</p> <p>Barry's bench accounted for just 18 of its 80 points, and 13 of the 44 rebounds Wednesday. That's area the coaching staff is seeking more production from come Saturday.&nbsp;</p> <p>"Our bench is going to be key against them, especially if we're playing as hard as we can," Saunders said. "Guys are gonna get subbed out, so our bench is going to be huge in this game."</p> <p><span style="color: #ac1a2f;"><strong><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=196424&amp;streamType=audio" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ac1a2f;">BUCCANEERS RADIO BROADCAST</span></a></strong></span></p> <p><a href="http://www.sidearmstats.com/eckerd/mbball/" target="_blank"><strong>LIVE STATS</strong></a></p> <p><a href="http://eckerdtritons.com/watch/?Live=666" target="_blank"><strong>LIVE VIDEO</strong></a></p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong> Barry held off Lynn on the road Wednesday to take over sole possession of first place in the league ...

The win improved Barry&rsquo;s record to 13-1 overall, 5-0 in the Sunshine State Conference.</p> <p>Barry never trailed, and shot 59.7 percent from the floor, knocking down 10 triples for the 10<sup>th</sup> time this season. Juan Ferrales had 22 points and six rebounds, and Adrian Gonzalez scored 19 points on nine of 10 shooting for the Bucs.</p> <p>&ldquo;Finally, I broke out of that slump I was going through,&rdquo; Gonzalez said.</p> <p>Gonzalez, who made his first six field goals, gave Barry an eight-point lead at the 8:27 mark of the first half. Yunio Barrueta&rsquo;s basket with 4:38 to play in the half pushed the Buccaneers ahead by 10. Nova (6-8, 2-4) went on a 7-0 run to cut it to three with 2:15 remaining on the first half clock. But Savad Garner scored in transition, and Ferrales canned one of his four triples with four seconds remaining in the half as Barry nudged its lead back to eight entering the break.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/YXpXe3eD8go" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>Gonzalez scored 6:03 into the second half to extend the Buccaneers lead to 14, but the Sharks trimmed it to four following two Chris Page free throws at the 9:05 mark. Barry then went on a 10-2 run over the next 4:01 to bump the lead back to 14 on Barrueta&rsquo;s dunk, and that all but sealed the deal.</p> <p>Barrueta had 18 points and 10 rebounds for his sixth double-double this season. Deric Hill had a double-double of his own with 10 points and a school record-tying 16 assists. Hill also had five boards and four steals, and did not commit a turnover in 28 minutes.</p> <p>&ldquo;Preparing for the game, Coach told us what was going to be open,&rdquo; Hill said, following his milestone game. &ldquo;When I passed the ball, I just told &rsquo;em, &lsquo;Just turn around and shoot it.&rsquo;&rdquo;</p> <p>Hill also recorded his second career dunk when he threw down a breakaway inside the last minute.</p> <p>Barry outrebounded the Sharks, 39-19. It was the 13<sup>th</sup> opponent the Bucs have beaten on the boards this season.</p> <p>&ldquo;We work on rebounding every day in practice,&rdquo; Gonzalez said. &ldquo;Even though it&rsquo;s a pain in practice, it paid off.&rdquo;</p> <p>Page scored 22 points, Harrison Goodrick had 17, and Brian Cahill 14 for the Sharks, who hit nine triples and shot 52.6 percent from the field.</p> <p>Barry had 36 points in the paint, and outscored Nova, 25-11, in second chance opportunities.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was a good attack of the zone,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s such a good team. They&rsquo;re so explosive. I never really could relax until the last minute because of their ability to hit the three. They&rsquo;re the best 6-8 team in the country.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Buccaneers will play at Lynn 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in a battle in Boca Raton.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s going to be a big task for us,&rdquo; Gonzalez said.</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mb0117.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a>&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25581Sat, 17 Jan 2015 20:03:00 GMTBuccaneers Men's Basketball Hosts Nova SE 4 p.m. Saturday<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25577___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. &ndash; Don&rsquo;t let the records fool you.

Florida Tech (10-5, 0-4 SSC) hit 45 percent of its shots, going 27 of 60.</p> <p>The Bucs trailed by as many as nine in the first half.

Arie Williams steal and no-look alley-oop pass to Jevoni Robinson, who finished off the play with a thunderous dunk, gave Barry a three-point lead with 13:18 to play.</p> <p>Florida Tech went on a 8-0 run to open up a five-point lead, but the Buccaneers used an 11-4 run to take a 59-57 lead on Anders Haas&rsquo; triple with 6:44 to play.

It starts with 6-foot-6 junior forward Corbin Jackson, who is second in the Sunshine State Conference in rebounding (9.3) and 12th in scoring (13.4). He also ranks third in the country in blocked shots (52). Panthers guards Jermaine Jackson (14.1) and Chris Carter (13.7) are also among the league's top scorers.&nbsp;</p> <p>"Florida Tech is a dangerous team to play because of their athleticism and ability to score at all five positions," Bucs assistant coach Ryan Saunders said. "They are going to be hungry for a win. We expect them to play very hard so our guys must be ready."</p> <p>Barry has athletes itself. Junior forward Yunio Barrueta is third in the league in scoring (19.3) and rebounding (8.6). Senior guard Deric Hill leads the SSC in assists (8.1) and is second in steals (2.6). Senior guard Juan Ferrales is tied for 14th in scoring (12.4), and junior guard Anders Haas is 15th (12.2). Senior forward Jevoni Robinson is fourth in rebounds (7.2) and sixth in blocks (1.3).</p> <p>But there is more to this game than just athleticism. It's about grit and determination. It's about defending the home court for the Buccaneers. Barry is 7-1 at home this season. Florida Tech is 2-2 on the road.</p> <p>Last year the Bucs needed overtime to beat the Panthers in Miami Shores.</p> <p>"They jumped on us here last year, and we had to fight back to win a close game," Saunders said. "This year, we must get off to a better start, much like we did against Palm Beach Atlantic (Saturday) in the first half.

Second-year Bucs coach Butch Estes recorded his 300th win at a four-year school.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;ve enjoyed every minute of it, but none more than what we&rsquo;ve done here at Barry,&rdquo; Estes said after improving to 473-319 in his 32nd year at the college level.</p> <p>Barry led by as many as 24 late in the first half &ndash; a half the Buccaneers shot 50 percent from the field. But the Sailfish (5-7) used a 13-5 run to start the second half to cut the lead to 49-35 with 14:40 to play. Triples by Anders Haas and Arie Williams pushed the Bucs lead back to 20, however, just 1:28 later.</p> <p>Juan Ferrales scored at the 10:52 mark to extend Barry&rsquo;s lead to 23. Savad Garner scored in transition to make it a 25-point game, and Yunio Barrueta canned one of his four triples to push the Bucs up 76-48 with 5:22 on the clock.</p> <p>Barrueta had 28 points and 10 rebounds, shooting 9 of 13 from the field. It was his fifth double-double of the season. Ferrales scored 18 points. Williams had 11 points, and Hill 12 assists and three steals. Haas had eight points and six assists. Evin Graham led the Sailfish with 17 points and six assists. Clayton Williams scored 14 points, and Garet Tucker had 13 points and seven boards.

So here's a little history lesson:</p> <p>This year's start is one of the three best of all time in Barry's 31-year history. A win over Palm Beach Atlantic Saturday would match the 2000-01 team's 11-1 start.</p> <p>"Any time you can set a school record for wins to start a season, it is a special accomplishment," Bucs second-year assistant coach Justin Furr said. "We want to continue to build this program that was started with so many great teams and coaches before us."</p> <p>No. 7/8 Barry hosts PBA (5-6) at 4 p.m. Saturday in the Health &amp; Sports Center in a game to be carried on the&nbsp;<span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Buccaneers Broadcast Network</strong></span>.</p> <p>The Buccaneers beat Palm Beach Atlantic twice last year, but both games were decided by single digits. Barry won its home game against the Sailfish last season, 78-69. This year, PBA is 1-4 on the road. Conversely, the Bucs are 6-1 at home.</p> <p>This marks the first game in the HSC since Dec. 16 -- the Bucs' only loss of the season, a 78-73 setback to No. 9 Indianapolis. Saturday's game is also the start of a three-game homestand. Barry will also host Florida Tech on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and Nova Southeastern on Jan. 17 at 4 p.m.</p> <p>Barry has won four straight -- all away from the HSC.</p> <p>"We had a great first semester and a strong start in conference play here in early January," Furr said. "Our guys' mental focus has been sharp. They have really been focused on one game at a time."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong>&nbsp;Barry came back in the second half to beat Rollins on the road Wednesday ...

Rollins (7-6, 0-2 Sunshine State Conference) shot 62.5 percent in the first half, including 54.5 percent from 3-point range. Barry (10-1, 3-0) hit 39.3 percent of its first half shots, going just 2-for-8 from long distance.</p> <p>&ldquo;While we were in the locker room, we decided we were going to take the momentum away from them,&rdquo; said Robinson, who had 10 rebounds, six points and two blocks in an unsung hero role. &ldquo;In the first half, the speed of the game was played to their favor. In the second half, we were able to speed it up.&rdquo;</p> <p>It wasn&rsquo;t until the 9:28 mark in the second half where Barry grabbed its first lead on a Yunio Barrueta three-pointer. He hit another on the next trip down the floor to put the Buccaneers ahead by four on one of Deric Hill&rsquo;s eight assists.</p> <p>With those eight assists, Hill reached 300 in his two-year Barry career. He ranks third in school history all-time.</p> <p>Hill sank three straight free throws over two possessions to extend the Bucs lead to seven, but Chris Uhle buried one of his five triples, and Jeff Dirkin hit a free throw as the Tars cut the gap to two, 58-56, with 6:22 left.</p> <p>Robinson followed up a missed shot with one of his six offensive rebounds, flushing home a dunk with 5:32 remaining on the clock, and Arie Williams added a driving layup to extend Barry&rsquo;s lead back out to nine.</p> <p>Robinson, whose flying-out-of-nowhere block with 8:10 remaining protected a four-point lead, had two offensive rebounds on one possession inside the four-minute mark, and Williams grabbed another. All of it led to two Anders Haas free throws that put Barry ahead by 13.</p> <p>&ldquo;I was just thinking, &lsquo;get my hands on every ball I can.&rsquo; Offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds,&rdquo; Robinson said. &ldquo;I was also trying to play helpside defense. I just wanted to contest every shot, and make it tough for them and disrupt every shot.&rdquo;</p> <p>Robinson&rsquo;s 10 boards marked the second straight game and the third time this year he&rsquo;s reached double-digit rebounds. But his hustle to get back and block the shot at the 8:10 mark on a breakaway Tars basket opportunity was one of the defensive gems of the season.</p> <p>&ldquo;I was a safety,&rdquo; Robinson said. &ldquo;I was being overly aggressive in stepping up, wanting to go for every steal. I just used my athleticism to block it.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry, which shot 60 percent in the second half, finished 16 of 18 from the free throw line. Hill was 7-for-8 in a game he finished with 17 points, eight assists, four rebounds and two steals.</p> <p>Barrueta had 19 points on 7 of 12 shooting, and pulled down nine rebounds. He hit three of his six triple tries. Uhle finished with 23 points on 9 of 12 shooting for the Tars, who were 2-for-8 from the free throw line.</p> <p>Barry outrebounded Rollins, 33-18, marking the 11<sup>th</sup> straight opponent the Bucs have beaten on the glass.</p> <p>More than anything, it was a win in a game where an ominous start had things working against the Buccaneers.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s definitely a breathtaking moment after beating the No. 1 team in the country,&rdquo; Robinson said, the remnants of Barry&rsquo;s win at Florida Southern still lingering. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re definitely going to learn from this, and make sure we come out and execute from the start of the game.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mbb0107.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25516Wed, 07 Jan 2015 23:27:00 GMTNo. 7/8 Men's Hoops Hits Road to Rollins<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25512___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>Barry University men's basketball team is well aware of Rollins' patented trapping zone defense.

The past two wins were decided by two points, including an overtime thriller in 2013.&nbsp;</p> <p>But the Bucs recall their last meeting with the Tars when they spoiled Barry's Homecoming in Miami Shores last season -- a 75-71 Rollins win. It was an indication of proper execution of an effective system put in place by Rollins' 35-year coach Tom Klusman, who is one of 16 Division II coaches to win over 600 games.</p> <p>That system hinges primarily around the zone.</p> <p>"They use it to control tempo and slow teams down," Saunders said. "If you are stagnant offensively and struggle to make shots, you're in for a long night. Our goal is to put five weapons on the floor at all times and attack their zone, whether it be from the inside or outside. We are capable of scoring either way, and just have to take care of the ball and play with confidence, which our guys do."</p> <p>Barry, which returns home Saturday for a 4 p.m. matinee against Palm Beach Atlantic, is second in the league in field goal percentage defense. That is something Bucs head coach Butch Estes will forever lay his hat on as a necessary staple of producing successful basketball.&nbsp;</p> <p>"If we can use our defense to create some missed shots and turnovers, then we can get out in transition, where I think we are at our best," Saunders said.</p> <p>Of course, there was one more important element the Bucs studious assistant wanted to throw in.</p> <p>"And score before they can set up the zone."</p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=193161&amp;streamType=audio" target="_blank"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">BUCCANEERS RADIO BROADCAST</span></strong></a></p> <p><a href="http://www.rollinssports.com/liveEvents/liveEvents.dbml?db_oem_id=19500&amp;SPID=11254" target="_blank">LIVE STREAM</a></p> <p><a href="http://stats.statbroadcast.com/broadcast/?id=63070" target="_blank">LIVE STATS</a>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong> Then-No. 10 Barry beat No. 1 Florida Southern, 107-102, in Lakeland ...

src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25509___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MELBOURNE, Fla. -- Barry University's Yunio Barrueta was named the Sunshine State Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week.</p> <p>"Especially after a big win, it feels good," said Barrueta, a 6-foot-6 junior foward. "With our team coming on and me personally performing, it's a great feeling. But more importantly, getting that win against the No. 1 team in the country was the best part of it."</p> <p>Barrueta scored 26 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and had one block in the No. 10 Buccaneers' 107-102 win at No. 1 Florida Southern Saturday. It was his second straight double-double, and his fourth this season.&nbsp;</p> <p>"I'm trying to stay consistent," said Barrueta, who leads the Bucs in scoring (18.5) and rebounding (8.4). "In that one week break, I was trying not to lose it. Consistency is what it is."</p> <p>This marks the first SSC Player of the Week award for Barrueta, last year's league Newcomer of the Year and First-Team All-Conference selection.</p> <p>Barry men's basketball has been represented with two consecutive SSC honors. Junior guard Anders Haas received the previous award before Christmas.</p> <p>"We've been making history these past couple weeks," Barrueta said. "So we just got to continue to keep on performing the way we have, and maintain our focus."&nbsp;</p> <p>The Bucs play at Rollins 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Winter Park, Florida, before returning home Saturday for a 4 p.m. tip against Palm Beach Atlantic.</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25509Mon, 05 Jan 2015 13:48:00 GMTNo. 10 Men's Basketball Knocks Off No. 1 Florida Southern<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25505___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>LAKELAND, Fla. &ndash; For the first time in school history, Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball team knocked off the No. 1-ranked team in the country, beating Florida Southern on the road, 107-102, Saturday night.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s an awfully, big quality win,&rdquo; said Barry second-year coach Butch Estes, who collected the first win over a top-ranked opponent in his 32-year career.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m excited for the players as a reward for all their hard work and dedication. However, in the big picture, it&rsquo;s just one of 16 conference games. I hope the guys will use it as motivation to continue to work hard, stay focused and stay grounded as we move on through the regular season.&rdquo;</p> <p>It marked the first time Florida Southern scored 100 or more points and lost in its storied history.</p> <p>Juan Ferrales hit a driving basket with 1:07 remaining to give the Buccaneers (9-1, 2-0 Sunshine State Conference) a five-point lead. Florida Southern answered seven seconds later when Stephen Battle canned a 3-pointer to cut the Bucs lead to 104-102.</p> <p>After a Bucs turnover, Florida Southern (11-1, 0-1) couldn&rsquo;t convert with 21 seconds remaining. Barry&rsquo;s Anders Haas sank one of two free throws to extend the lead back to three with 14 seconds to go. On Florida Southern&rsquo;s rush up the floor, Barry guard Deric Hill came up with a steal from behind, and Haas scored to put the finishing touches on a game that witnessed nine ties and nine lead changes.</p> <p>&ldquo;The resilience in a hostile environment is a positive thing for us to build on,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;I think also we are the beneficiaries of an experienced basketball team, particularly in the backcourt with Deric Hill, Juan Ferrales and Anders Haas.&rdquo;</p> <p>Hill had 15 points, 12 assists, five rebounds and three steals. Ferrales scored 13 points on 5-for-7 shooting, and grabbed five boards. Haas had 18 points, going 7 of 12 from the floor.</p> <p>Barry's Yunio Barrueta, a Sporting News preseason Honorable Mention All-American, had 26 points and 11 rebounds, while shooting 10 of 17 from the field. Arie Williams canned three triples to finish with nine points and three assists in 11 minutes.</p> <p>Battle had 29 points on 10 of 16 shooting, Capers finished with 22 points, and Dylan Travis had 21 or the Mocs, who erased two nine-point second half leads by the Buccaneers.</p> <p>Barry had a season-high 29 assists, which led to 53.9 percent field goal shooting. Hill&rsquo;s 12 assists were also a season-best.</p> <p>&ldquo;I thought he played an outstanding floor game,&rdquo; Estes said of his senior point guard. &ldquo;Having him in the game and staying out of foul trouble in a foul-played game was really a key. I don&rsquo;t think we would&rsquo;ve won the game without him.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry and Florida Southern were whistled for a combined 48 fouls. The Moccasins went 21 of 31 from the free throw line. The Bucs sank 15 of 23.</p> <p>Ferrales, known for his outside shooting prowess, flashed a different dimension to his game as he drove into the paint for four of his five buckets &ndash; none of which was bigger than his basket at the 1:07 mark.</p> <p>&ldquo;Huge,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;I think we took a chapter out of their book. I think he was wise to drive the basketball, and not take an outside shot.&rdquo;</p> <p>Florida Southern shot 34 of 80 from the floor for 42.5 percent. The Mocs were 13 of 34 from 3-point range.</p> <p>&ldquo;We switched to zone, and they made the first shot, but after that they missed a couple, and we were able to get out in transition and hit some shots,&rdquo; Estes said.</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s power forwards, Tray Leonard and Jevoni Robinson, combined for 16 points, 15 rebounds and five assists. Leonard was 6 of 8 from the field, finishing with 12 points.</p> <p>&ldquo;Tray and Jevoni brought us an inside presence that was critical down the stretch, especially on the defensive end of the floor,&rdquo; Estes said.</p> <p>The win was just the fourth in school history at Florida Southern, which entered the game with a 46-15 advantage in the series. And while it was big because wins in Lakeland have come few and far between, the Bucs realize it&rsquo;s just one in a long season left to be played.</p> <p>&ldquo;From that perspective, we have to rely on our senior leaders to lead this team as we prepare for future opponents,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;The thing I like is we&rsquo;ve been really consistent. I&rsquo;m proud of our consistency.&rdquo;</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mbb0103.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE&nbsp;</a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25505Sat, 03 Jan 2015 23:49:00 GMTNo. 10 Men's Hoops Meets No. 1 Florida Southern Saturday<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25501___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>LAKELAND, Fla. -- Barry University men's basketball team returns to Sunshine State Conference play for Saturday's 7:30 p.m. tip-off at No. 1 Florida Southern.</p> <p>The game will air on the Buccaneers Radio Broadcast Network.

named the Sunshine State Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Week.</p> <p>Haas, a junior guard from Copenhagen, Denmark, burst into the spotlight Friday night after scoring a career-high 35 points on 11 of 13 shooting, including eight of nine triples in No. 8 Barry&rsquo;s 97-70 win over Nyack (N.Y.) in Lynn&rsquo;s Boca Raton Classic. He also had six rebounds, three assists, a block and a steal, while making all five of his free throws.</p> <p>One night later, the Albany transfer had 21 points, four rebounds, two steals and two assists, while going four of eight from the field and three of six from 3-point range in the Buccaneers&rsquo; 98-90 win over Winston-Salem State, which was receiving votes in last week&rsquo;s national polls. He went 10-for-10 from the free throw line to complete a perfect week from the stripe.</p> <p>Against No. 9 Indianapolis on Tuesday, Haas sank all three of his free throws. He capped 2014 with 20 straight free throws over a four-game stretch. &nbsp;Haas is shooting 93 percent from the stripe this season, while averaging 12.6 points per game.</p> <p>&ldquo;Anders had the breakout game that we had been expecting from him on Friday night,&rdquo; said Barry assistant coach Justin Furr, who played a key role in bringing the Albany transfer to Miami Shores. &ldquo;He was able to build on that on Saturday, and we look forward to him carrying that momentum into SSC play.&rdquo;</p> <p>In the three games, Haas averaged 20.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists during the week.</p> <p>Barry will play No. 1 Florida Southern 7:30 p.m. Jan. 3 in Lakeland, Florida.</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25496Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:30:00 GMTNo. 8 Men's Basketball Overcomes Winston-Salem State<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25495___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p><span>BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Barry University's No. 8-ranked men's basketball team won the Boca Raton Classic at Lynn University after beating Winston-Salem State, 98-90, Saturday.</span></p> <p><span>Barry (8-1) was the only team at the four-team event to win both weekend games.

"We're going to have to put our big boy pants on."</span></p> <p><span>After an ominous start in this one, Barry put its working clothes on, recovering from a potentially disastrous first half to take a&nbsp;54-43 halftime lead.&nbsp;</span>The Buccaneers bounced back from a 1-for-11 start 4:20 into the game by shooting 15 of 25 the rest of the half for a respectable 44 percent at the break.&nbsp;</p> <p>Anders Haas' three-pointer with 5:55 to play in the opening half gave Barry a 32-31 lead after falling behind by as many as 10 less than seven minutes into the game. Deric Hill's 3-pointer with 2:29 left on the clock pushed the Bucs lead to seven, and Savad Garner scored on a layup to make it 49-40. Yunio Barrueta, who scored 22 points in the first half on 8 of 14 shooting, hit a layup before Marquez Jones canned one of the Rams' nine first-half triples.</p> <p>Winston-Salem State finished with a season-high 15 3-point goals, shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc.</p> <p>Barry never trailed in the second half, but the Rams cut the Buccaneers' double-digit lead down to six on WyKevin Bazemore's basket with 2:03 to go. But Jevoni Robinson hit a floating jumper in the paint, and Deric Hill and Haas combined to sink three free throws down the stretch, allowing the Bucs to hold on.</p> <p>"I might have to get a little bit more involved in some of the things we're doing down the stretch," said Estes, who is 4-0 in Lynn's pre-Christmas tournament in his first two years at the de Hoernle Center. "There was some chinks in the armor.

&ndash; Barry University&rsquo;s No. 8-ranked men&rsquo;s basketball team hosts No. 9 Indianapolis 7:30 p.m. Tuesday in a battle of unbeatens to kick off the Cruzin&rsquo; Classic hosted by Trip Sports.</p> <p>The game will air on the Buccaneers Broadcast Network with Danny Rabinowitz handling the call.</p> <p>This marks the first ranked opponent for both teams this season. Barry (6-0) and Indianapolis (7-0) have not played since each won their respective conference openers on Dec. 6. Tuesday&rsquo;s tilt is the first between the two schools since Dec. 18, 2010 when the Greyhounds beat the Buccaneers, 67-57, in Boca Raton, Fla.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/imsaGtx-Nwk" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s not about the polls or the standings,&rdquo; Bucs second-year coach Butch Estes said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s about trying to conduct yourself each and every day as a champion.&rdquo;</p> <p>Both teams competed in the NCAA Division II National Tournament last season. Both teams are scoring over 84 points per game. Both teams rank in the top 12 in the country in five different team statistical categories.</p> <p>The Greyhounds are second in the nation in assists per game (22.1). Barry is eighth (20.0). Indy is outscoring teams by 27 points per game, which ranks second nationally. The Bucs are eighth at a 22.0-points per game differential. Barry ranks seventh in the country in rebound margin (12.0). Indianapolis is 11<sup>th</sup> at 11.0.</p> <p>&ldquo;Playing against the No. 12 team in the country, you always have to have your mind right, and know the team you&rsquo;re playing against,&rdquo; said Bucs junior forward Yunio Barrueta, who is averaging 16.5 points and 7.7 rebounds. &ldquo;Taking the rankings away, this is a regular game &ndash; just go out there and play hard like we always do.&rdquo;</p> <p>Indy point guard Lucas Barker, a 6-foot junior from Cranbourne, Australia, leads the nation in assists per game (8.9). A Kentucky Wesleyan transfer, Barker is also shooting 51 percent from the field, including 44 percent from three-point range, while averaging 9.7 points per game. He&rsquo;s had a career-high 11 assists in two games this year.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Bw_dm3dc3SU" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>Barker will be matched up with Barry senior point guard Deric Hill, who is tied for 15<sup>th</sup> in the country in assists per game at 6.2. Hill was fourth in the nation (7.6) last year. He is averaging 9.8 points per game, and shooting 47 percent.</p> <p>Greyhounds 6-7 senior forward Joe Lawson is averaging 21 points and 8.7 rebounds per game,while shooting 59 percent from the floor. Brennan McElroy, a 6-7 senior forward, is shooting 76.8 percent, which ranks second in the country. He&rsquo;s averaging 13.9 points and 9.4 rebounds. Guards Jordan Loyd (11.4) and Dai-Jon Parker (10.1) are also scoring in double figures.</p> <p>&ldquo;Statistically, they are as impressive as any team that I&rsquo;ve ever coached against,&rdquo; said Estes, who is in his 32<sup>nd</sup> year as a collegiate coach. &ldquo;We did have an opportunity to watch a few minutes of their (exhibition) game against the University of Indiana, which they competed very, very well against. This is a strong, big, physical team with impressive numbers, coming here undefeated. They&rsquo;re used to winning. They&rsquo;ve been in the Top 20 the last three or four years on a consistent basis, so this is a premier program. And you know, it&rsquo;ll be a great opportunity for our guys. What a challenge, and our guys like those challenges, and they usually rise to the occasion. So it will be so much fun to see how we can compete at ultimately the top level of Division II basketball in the country.&rdquo;</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/QFYEyqVAWlE" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong>&nbsp;Then-No. 12 Barry waged through its lowest scoring output of the season in the conference opener, holding on to beat Saint Leo for the first time in seven games ... Sr. G Juan Ferrales scored 17 points, and Sr. G Deric Hill had 16 points, six assists and two steals.</p> <p><strong>SERIES RECORD:</strong> Barry is 1-2 all-time against Indianapolis ... In the last meeting, the Greyhounds won 67-57 on Dec. 18, 2010 in Boca Raton, Fla. ... Indy beat the Buccaneers, 73-55, on Nov. 27, 1999 in the only meeting in Miami Shores ... Barry&rsquo;s win, 44-43, came on Dec. 21, 2002 in Boca Raton.</p> <p><strong>EYES ON OPPONENTS:</strong> The Greyhounds are averaging 89.1 points per game, and have a 27-point average margin of victory in their seven games ... Indy&rsquo;s closest game was a 19-point victory ... Sr. F/C Joe Lawson is averaging 21 ppg, 8.6 reb and 1.7 blk, while hitting 59.2 percent of his shots ... Sr. F Brennan McElroy is averaging 13.9 ppg, 9.4 reb and 2.5 stl, while shooting 76.8 percent from the floor, which ranks second in the country ...

Indy is shooting 54.5 percent from the field, including 40 percent from 3-point range.</p> <p><strong>SHARING MEANS SCORING</strong>: Barry ranks eighth in the country in assists per game (20.0) ... Indy ranks second (22.1) ... That helps explain why both teams are scoring over 84 points per game.</p> <p><strong>BARRY IT OR BURY IT?:</strong> In four of the six games this year, the Bucs have hit 10 or more 3-pointers, with a season-high of 12 ... In two games, Barry made just six triples ... The Bucs are coming off a season-low .214 three-point shooting effort after going 6 of 28 from beyond the arc.</p> <p><strong>TAKING CARE OF THINGS:</strong> The Bucs committed a season-low six turnovers in the win over Saint Leo ... That is the fewest amount of turnovers Barry has committed under head coach Butch Estes in his two years.</p> <p><strong>2 FOR 20s:</strong> Only two players have scored over 20 points for the Bucs in a game this year, Jr. F Yunio Barrueta and Soph. F Adrian Gonzalez ... Conversely, Indy&rsquo;s Joe Lawson and Dai-Jon Parker have reached 20 or more a combined six times, with Lawson accounting for five of them.</p> <p><strong>ON THE REBOUND:</strong> Barry has outrebounded all six opponents this year.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>2014-15 BUCS RECORD WHEN ...</strong> <br /><strong>Overtime Games:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Home Games:</strong> 6-0<br /><strong>Road Games:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Neutral Games:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Night Games:</strong> 5-0<br /><strong>Day Games:</strong> 1-0<br /><strong>Leading at Halftime:</strong> 6-0<br /><strong>Trailing at Halftime:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Tied at Halftime:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>After a Loss:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Scoring 80+ points:</strong> 4-0<br /><strong>Scoring 70-79 points:</strong> 1-0<br /><strong>Scoring 60-69 points:</strong> 1-0<br /><strong>Scoring 50-59 points:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Games Decided by 2 points or Less:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Games Decided by 5 points or Less:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Games Decided by 10 points or Less:</strong> 1-0<br /><strong>Games Decided by 11-20 Points:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Games Decided by over 20 Points:</strong> 5-0<br /><strong>Outrebounding Opponents:</strong> 6-0<br /><strong>Opponents Outrebound Bucs:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Matching Opponents in Rebounds:</strong> 0-0<br /><strong>Committing 15 or Fewer Turnovers:</strong> 5-0<br /><strong>Committing over 15 Turnovers:</strong> 1-0</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/stats.htm?eventId=188063&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank">LIVE STATS</a></strong></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=188063&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank"><strong>LIVE STREAM</strong></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25474Mon, 15 Dec 2014 16:56:00 GMTBarry University Athletics Hosts HANDY Christmas Party<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25472___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. &ndash; Barry University&rsquo;s athletic department and School of Human Performance and Leisure Sciences hosted a Christmas party for underprivileged children from South Florida, spreading holiday cheer.</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s student-athletes and staff members from the athletic department staff and HPLS played basketball, games and other fitness activities, decorated Christmas stockings and spent time talking and mentoring with children from Helping Abused Neglected Disadvantaged Youth Inc.&rsquo;s Pompano Beach location. HANDY is an award-winning non-profit organization serving over 45,000 Broward County children in foster and relative/non-relative care associated with the child dependency system.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s always nice when you are able to put a smile on a child's face,&rdquo; Buccaneers women&rsquo;s soccer player Natalie Diaz said. &ldquo;The HANDY party really embodied the spirit of the season.&rdquo;</p> <p>Members from each of Barry&rsquo;s 12 athletic teams spent time with the kids, and the athletes even donated money to help purchase gifts for the HANDY children. The kids were also treated to pizza and drinks.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was amazing seeing the kids to be so happy by something so small,&rdquo; Barry women&rsquo;s golfer Eiken Hansen said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s not about giving them presents, but more about helping out and making them happy. All of them had fun playing in the gym, eating pizza and interacting with athletes. As long as all of them went home with a smile, we did everything right.&rdquo;</p> <p>Santa even made an appearance.</p> <p>&ldquo;I don&rsquo;t know who had more fun, the student athletes or the children who came?&rdquo; women&rsquo;s basketball player Emily Schahczinski said. &ldquo;Many athletes enjoyed getting to know the children while they decorated Christmas stockings. The children also had many questions for us, too. I believe it was a great time for all who participated.&rdquo;</p> <p>Being able to talk to the HANDY kids was the simplest form of giving Barry&rsquo;s student-athletes offered, but it was also maybe the most worthwhile -- for all parties.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s twofold when you consider the impact a smile and a few simple words can have on a person,&rdquo; men&rsquo;s basketball player Juan Ferrales said. &ldquo;Being able to spend time with these kids meant something to us as athletes, knowing we could maybe enlighten them, cheer them up or give them hope for their future. But to be honest, I myself felt like I was getting something as equally meaningful in return.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25472Fri, 12 Dec 2014 15:43:00 GMTMen's Basketball Ranked No. 9/11 in National Polls<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25465___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball team is ranked No. 9 in this week&rsquo;s National Association of Basketball Coaches poll, released Tuesday.

Juan Ferrales&rsquo; basket extended the Bucs lead to 11, but the Lions cut it to five with 6:42 left.</p> <p>The Bucs responded with a 10-2 run, capped off by one of Ferrales&rsquo; four 3-pointers to give Barry its largest lead at 13 at the 2:45 mark. Saint Leo&rsquo;s Cale Girten answered a dunk by Barry&rsquo;s Yunio Barrueta with a triple to cut the gap to four, 58-54, with 50 seconds left.</p> <p>But Barry sank six of its last eight free throws to seal it in a game that featured 11 lead changes and five ties.</p> <p>The Buccaneers shot 40 percent from the field, while the Lions hit 42 percent of their shots.

What they may not know is the history between these two teams hasn't been kind even beyond last year.</p> <p>Try the last four seasons.</p> <p>Barry University men's basketball team has dropped the last seven games to the Lions, who owns the series record, 34-28. The Bucs' last win over Saint Leo was a 74-59 victory on Jan. 26, 2011 in BarryU's Health &amp; Sports Center.</p> <p>That's the site of Saturday's 4 p.m. Sunshine State Conference opener between the No. 12/14 Buccaneers (5-0) and the Lions (4-3) in a game that will air on the Buccaneers Broadcast Network with Danny Rabinowitz handling the call.</p> <p>Saturday's game has been dubbed a #Blackout. All fans are encouraged to wear Barry black.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/qf66Z50tJ28" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>"Saint Leo is a tough, hardnosed group," Bucs assistant coach Justin Furr said. "They are coming off back-to-back-to-back NCAA Tournaments, and have a veteran team returning."</p> <p>The Lions won a school record 24 games last season, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. They were the only SSC team to advance out of the first round of the South Regional. Over the last three seasons, the Lions have gone 64-29 under head coach Lance Randall, who began his fourth season in Saint Leo this year.</p> <p>This year the Lions, who are coming off a 59-51 loss at Flagler Monday, are averaging 70.9 points per game, while shooting 42 percent from the field. They are shooting 80 percent from the free throw line, which ranks eighth in the country and leads the conference.</p> <p>"They are a well-coached team that really rebounds the ball, and makes it tough on your team to score," Furr said. "They take great shots on the offensive end, and move very well without the ball."</p> <p>Lions senior forward Ron Foxx is averaging 15.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. Sophomore guard Marcus Dewberry is averaging 14.4 points and 4.4 assists per game. Junior center Lucas Johnson is good for 9.1 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, and senior guard Devin Crisosto averages 8.7 points and four assists per game. All of them are shooting 75 percent or better from the free throw line.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the Buccaneers have outscored opponents by just under 25 points per game, which ranks sixth in the country. Their 20.8 assists per game is tops in the SSC and sixth in the nation. Barry has outrebounded all five of its previous opponents by nearly 14 boards per game, which ranks ninth in the country and first in the league.</p> <p>Barry junior forward Yunio Barrueta, who earned the Most Valuable Player award in the Cesar Odio Thanksgiving Classic, is averaging 17.8 points and 8.4 rebounds per game. He's shooting 59 percent from the field. Senior guard Juan Ferrales, also named to the All-Odio Classic Team, is second in scoring at 12.6 points while shooting 46.7 percent from the floor. Sophomore forward Adrian Gonzalez is scoring 10.4 points off the bench, and junior guard Anders Haas is scoring 10.2 points per game.</p> <p>"It's going to be imperative for us to continue to rebound and share the basketball," Furr said. "We also need to be sound defensively, but keep Saint Leo off the free throw line because if they get there, they've proven they can knock 'em down."</p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=188062&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;">LIVE STREAM</span></a></strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=188062&amp;streamType=stats"><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong><span>LIVE STATS</span></strong></span></a></span></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25455Thu, 04 Dec 2014 21:45:00 GMTMen's Basketball Receives Highest Ranking in School History<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25445___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball team moved up to No. 12 in the National Association of Basketball Coaches poll and No. 14 in the NCAA Division II Sports Information Directors of America media poll, both released Tuesday.</p> <p>This marks the highest rankings ever for the Buccaneers in men&rsquo;s basketball in any poll.

Saturday the Buccaneers did it again in a 96-75 win over Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras to win the Cesar Odio Thanksgiving Classic.</p> <p>Barry was the only team in the four-game weekend event to go unbeaten.</p> <p>The Bucs, ranked No. 20 in the NCAA Division II media poll and No. 24 in the National Association of Basketball Coaches poll, turned a two-point halftime lead into another rout in the Health &amp; Sports Center. The Bucs (5-0) led by as many as 32 in the second half in a game that featured eight lead changes in the first half.</p> <p>Early in the first half, the Bucs trailed by seven when Barry coach Butch Estes emptied his bench in a wholesale substitution, taking all five of his starters off the floor. The Bucs second unit of Arie Williams, Jevoni Robinson, Adrian Gonzalez, Alvaro Simoza and Kendall Leslie produced a 9-0 run to put Barry in front, 22-20. Josh Irving and Simoza scored back-to-back buckets, and Williams converted a three-point play to extend Barry's lead to six.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was another wake-up call and a chance for our second unit to come out with some energy," Williams said after scoring a career-high 19 points. "I thought our second unit did a great job.&rdquo;</p> <p>Rio Piedras (2-7) used 25 points on seven triples from Bryan Martinez to keep it a two-point game at the break. Martinez, who was named to the All-Odio Thanksgiving Classic Team, finished with 37 points on 11 of 16 shooting. It was the most an opponent has scored on Barry since Saint Leo's Jerrel Harris dropped 41 on the Bucs in an 84-81 loss last season in Miami Shores.</p> <p>Barry buried nine of its 11 triples in the second half, and shot 62 percent from the floor, outscoring the Gallitos, 56-37, after the intermission.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/HZ32ts57gKA" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>Tray Leonard, named to the All-Odio Classic Team, threw down a dunk on one of Deric Hill's seven assists 4:35 into the second half to give the Buccaneers a 15-point lead. Gonzalez's field goal at the 10:20 mark extended the lead to 25.</p> <p>Williams was four of nine from beyond the arc. He and Juan Ferrales have a team-best 12 triples this season. Ferrales, also named to the All-Odio Classic Team, scored 15 points on six of 10 shooting, and had three assists. Williams also had two steals.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think my effort on defense kind of picked me up offensively, so I was real happy I got into a groove again," Williams said.</p> <p>Barry's Anders Haas buried four 3-pointers on his way to 14 points and seven assists. Yunio Barrueta, named All-Odio Classic Most Valuable Player, finished with 13 points, eight rebounds and a block. Seven of his points came from the free throw line.</p> <p>Leonard had 13 points, seven boards and two steals.</p> <p>The Buccaneers outrebounded Rio Piedras, 42-18.</p> <p>Barry will host Saint Leo in the Sunshine State Conference opener next Saturday at 4 p.m.</p> <p>&ldquo;We had tough time with them last year," Williams said of the Lions, "so it&rsquo;s going to be a big game."</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mb1129.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>ALL-CESAR ODIO THANKSGIVING CLASSIC TEAM</strong></span></p> <p>CJ Wilson G Young Harris<br />Charles Ward G Sioux Falls<br />Bryan Martinez G PR-Rio Piedras<br /><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Juan Ferrales G BarryU</strong></span><br /><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Tray Leonard C BarryU</strong></span></p> <p><span style="color: #000000;"><strong>Most Valuable Player</strong></span><br /><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>Yunio Barrueta F BarryU</strong></span></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25442Sat, 29 Nov 2014 23:15:00 GMTNo. 20/24 Men's Hoops Run Away from Sioux Falls<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25440___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Barry University men's basketball team used a big second half to beat Sioux Falls (S.D.), 77-50, in the Cesar Odio Thanksgiving Classic Friday night.</p> <p>In the first meeting between the two schools, the Buccaneers (4-0) overcame a poor first-half shooting effort in which they connected on only seven of 24 field goals for 29 percent to outscore the Cougars (1-3) by 21 in the second half of a runaway win.</p> <p>Barry is ranked No. 20 in the NCAA Division II Sports Information Directors of America media poll and No. 24 in the National Association of Basketball Coaches poll.

He was named the Sunshine State Conference Coach of the Year twice, and his teams won 17 games eight times, including a school-record 23 victories in 2004-05 and 2006-07. Odio&rsquo;s 2009-10 team beat Florida Southern in Russellville, Arkansas, for the Bucs&rsquo; only NCAA Tournament victory in school history.</p> <p>&ldquo;First of all, I&rsquo;ve got a chance to meet Coach Odio. He&rsquo;s certainly a wonderful guy,&rdquo; said Robinson, who transferred to Barry from North Carolina State. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re happy to play this tournament for him. Being involved in the community is always a good thing. We&rsquo;ve volunteered for the Lymphoma Society the past couple weeks, and the outcome was great. This is just a wonderful opportunity for us to go out and represent Coach Odio and what he stands for.&rdquo;</p> <p>Odio has battled Leukemia twice during his coaching career, winning both battles &ndash; a symbol of his toughness as a coach and competitor. He played collegiately for Florida Southern, serving as team captain on a team that won the 1980-81 NCAA Championship. Odio now serves as an assistant athletic director at Barry.</p> <p>Barry (3-0) will host Sioux Falls (1-2) at 7 p.m. Friday and Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras (2-5) at 7 p.m. Saturday. Young Harris (2-2) plays Rio Piedras at 5 p.m. Friday and Sioux Falls at 5 p.m. Saturday. All games will air on the Buccaneers Broadcast Network with Danny Rabinowitz handling the call.</p> <p>&ldquo;Teams are going to come here and throw punches at us,&rdquo; said Robinson, who is averaging 6.7 rebounds, 4.0 points and one block per game. &ldquo;I think being able to respond is how we&rsquo;ll be recognized as a top team in the country and a good basketball program.</p> <p>&ldquo;As we progress on and on, the coaches get more intense, and we buckle down on things and do things the right way. From now on, I think we only get better as our opponents get better.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Buccaneers weren&rsquo;t at their best in the first half of Friday&rsquo;s 91-68 win over Florida Memorial. Then again, the athletic Lions came ready to play, and Barry wasn&rsquo;t ready for what hit them in the first 15 minutes of the opening half.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was definitely a wake-up call,&rdquo; said Robinson, whose highlight dunks have become commonplace when he&rsquo;s on the floor.</p> <p>&ldquo;We didn&rsquo;t come out and play as well as we should have in the first half. Coach (Butch Estes) did a good job of getting us back together, and we just went out there and dominated in the second half.&rdquo;</p> <p>Robinson, who is shooting .429 from the field and one of four Bucs pulling down over five rebounds per game, is convinced moving to Miami was the right move.</p> <p>&ldquo;So far, it&rsquo;s been wonderful,&rdquo; the sport management graduate student said. &ldquo;I made the best decision to come here. The coaching staff is great, and my teammates are even better. I&rsquo;ve learned a lot since I&rsquo;ve been here. My classes have been great. I think this is just a wonderful environment for learning and playing basketball.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Buccaneers have dished out 61 assists to their opponents' 19 in the first three games. While it&rsquo;s early, the 20.3 assists per game is tops in school history.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think it can take us a very long way,&rdquo; Robinson said of the Bucs&rsquo; share-the-basketball nature. &ldquo;Eventually, in the long run I think it will pay off. We&rsquo;re in it together, and we have one goal and want to accomplish everything we came here for.&rdquo;</p> <p>First things first, there&rsquo;s Thanksgiving basketball to feast on. Rest assured, Barry University is thankful for Cesar Odio, and the nationally-ranked Buccaneers will try to honor him with their play this weekend.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">CESAR ODIO THANKSGIVING CLASSIC SCHEDULE</span></strong></p> <p><strong>FRIDAY</strong></p> <p>5 p.m. &ndash; Young Harris (2-2) vs. Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras (2-5)</p> <p>7 p.m. &ndash; <span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>No. 20/24 Barry (3-0)</strong></span> vs. Sioux Falls (1-2)</p> <p><strong>SATURDAY</strong></p> <p>5 p.m. &ndash; Young Harris vs. Sioux Falls</p> <p>7 p.m. &ndash; <strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">Barry</span> </strong>vs. PR-Rio Piedras</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=184573&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank">YOUNG HARRIS-PR RIO PIEDRAS LIVE STREAM</a></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/stats.htm?eventId=184573&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank">YOUNG HARRIS-PR RIO PIEDRAS LIVE STATS</a></p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182138&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;">BARRY-SIOUX FALLS LIVE STREAM</span></a></strong></span></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/stats.htm?eventId=182138&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">BARRY-SIOUX FALLS LIVE STATS</span></strong></a></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=184576&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank">YOUNG HARRIS-SIOUX FALLS LIVE STREAM</a></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/stats.htm?eventId=184576&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank">YOUNG HARRIS-SIOUX FALLS LIVE STATS</a></p> <p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;"><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182139&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;">BARRY-PR RIO PIEDRAS LIVE STREAM</span></a></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;"><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182139&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;">BARRY-PR RIO PIEDRAS LIVE STATS</span></a></span></strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>CESAR ODIO THANKSGIVING CLASSIC NOTES</strong></span></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong> No. 20/24 Barry beat Florida Memorial, 91-68, Tuesday to improve to 3-0 ...

"We started to get a lot of great shots."</p> <p>It was a night in which <em>British Broadcasting Channel</em> was on campus to film the basketball program, along with segments with the school's mascot Bucky for a documentary reality show expected to air in the spring.&nbsp;</p> <p>It also was a night the Buccaneers appeared in the NABC national poll for the first time since being ranked No. 25 on Dec. 31, 2013, following a 9-0 start last season. The Bucs lost the first game after being ranked in the Top 25 a year ago, but this year they made good on their national respect.&nbsp;</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/UGizgFEcSck" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>Florida Memorial (0-3) led for different stretches in the first half, trading buckets with the Bucs (3-0).

"In the second half, we just made it a point of emphasis."</p> <p>Barry won the rebound battle, 39-29, grabbing 10 on the offensive glass in the second half. The Bucs outscored the Lions, 47-32, in the second half.</p> <p>Tied at 32-32 with 2:57 to play in the first half, Barry went on a 12-2 run when Ferrales, Yunio Barrueta and Arie Williams buried a combined four 3-pointers to take an eight-point lead into the break.</p> <p>"I thought that stretch for us, that just showed the versatility of our team," Furr said. We can do it in bunches, and we can put on a run really quick."</p> <p>The Bucs were 10 of 22 from 3-point range in a game that witnessed eight ties and nine lead changes -- all in the first half. Barry had 21 assists, including four each from Deric Hill and Anders Haas.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/Ik6I6yH47L4?list=UUg39y0CICWw6oeE9Rm2tllA" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>"In the preseason, we make it a point to try to teach our guys to share the ball," Furr said.

The theme is mascots&rsquo; involvement and influence at sporting events.</p> <p>&ldquo;The exposure&rsquo;s great,&rdquo; BarryU eight-year assistant coach Ryan Saunders said. &ldquo;BBC coming over here and doing something just adds to our name worldwide, I guess. We are looking at some kids from over there in London, England &hellip; so I think if our name gets out over there, it&rsquo;ll help us in a lot of different ways, help the school in a lot of ways, and help our program in terms of recruiting.&rdquo;</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/vDrGp2SONLc?list=UUg39y0CICWw6oeE9Rm2tllA" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s game against Florida Memorial is the first of three for the Bucs this week. The Buccaneers will host the Odio Thanksgiving Classic Friday and Saturday, beginning with Friday&rsquo;s 5 p.m. tip between Young Harris and Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras in the four-team tournament named in honor of former Barry coach Cesar Odio, who oversaw the program for 18 years, three of which culminated in the NCAA Tournament.</p> <p>FMU (0-2) is coming off a 74-48 loss at Florida International (3-0) Friday night. Samuel Dorismond scored 22 points for the Lions in the loss to the Division I Panthers. Shaquille Harding had 11 points, and Roody Romain pulled down 10 rebounds.</p> <p>Barry is 28-13 all-time against Florida Memorial, having won last year&rsquo;s game, 82-51, in front of 1,273 fans in the Health &amp; Sports Center. That win snapped a two-game Lions win streak in the series. The Bucs are 18-6 at home against FMU.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s a good game for the city, a good game for the community,&rdquo; said Saunders, who&rsquo;s been part of the rivalry since his playing days as a Buccaneer in 2003. &ldquo;They&rsquo;ll bring a lot of fans over. I know our Bucky&rsquo;s Crew will be in full effect, so it&rsquo;s really, really good for the community. Coach (Kenny) Bellinger does a good job. They always give us a very competitive game over here. Looking forward to the competition tomorrow night, and looking forward to the crowd and the support.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s Yunio Barrueta has scored in double figures in both of the first two games. He, Adrian Gonzalez, who was named the Sunshine State Conference Player of the Week, Juan Ferrales and Anders Haas have averaged 11 or more points per game in the first two. Barrueta leads the team in scoring (20.5 ppg) and rebounding (8.5 reb). Jevoni Robinson (7.0 reb), Tray Leonard (6.0) and Savad Garner (5.5) are key reasons the Buccaneers outrebounded their first two opponents by 15 boards per game.</p> <p>&ldquo;We looked at some film from the Mayaguez game. We did a lot of things well, and there are certainly some things we need to improve upon,&rdquo; Saunders said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s just another test for us. It doesn&rsquo;t matter who&rsquo;s coming in here. It&rsquo;s just another chance for us to get better, and keep plugging along.&rdquo;</p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182131&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">LIVE STREAM</span></strong></a></p> <p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;"><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182131&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;">LIVE STATS</span></a></span></strong></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25421Mon, 24 Nov 2014 11:31:00 GMTMen's Basketball Tames Tarzans<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25416___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. &ndash; Adrian Gonzalez tied a school record, going 10 of 10 from the floor, and Barry University&rsquo;s No. 22-ranked men&rsquo;s basketball team beat Puerto Rico-Mayaguez Friday, 89-64.</p> <p>&ldquo;I felt good.

I try to get my teammates involved. I don&rsquo;t care who scores, as long as we&rsquo;re playing well.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Buccaneers (2-0) were playing well all right, opening up a 57-26 halftime lead on the heels of 64.7 percent shooting. Barry never trailed in a game its benched outscored the Tarzans, 49-35. The Bucs also had 25 assists, 18 coming in the first half.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/o0WwdNjos5E" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>&ldquo;Don&rsquo;t worry about yourself. Worry about winning,&rdquo; Gonzalez said of the team&rsquo;s unselfish nature. &ldquo;The only way we&rsquo;re going to have success is if we move the ball and concentrate on winning.&rdquo;</p> <p>He had 22 points in 20 minutes -- mirroring a role he's accustomed to finding ways to produce. Yunio Barrueta had 12 points, seven rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes. Juan Ferrales had 11 points, knocking down his first four shots. Barry finished 36 of 71 from the floor for 50.7 percent.</p> <p>Barry outrebounded Mayaguez, 44-33, marking the fourth straight opponent, including two exhibitions the Bucs have won the board battle. The Tarzans (1-2) were held to 37.9 percent from the field.</p> <p>After both of the Bucs big men found themselves in first half foul trouble, sophomore power forward Alvaro Simoza spelled his front court partners, and finished with a career-best six points and three boards in 13 minutes. His four points, two boards and an assist in seven minutes in the first half earned the respect of coach Butch Estes, who now has another option to go to down low.</p> <p>&ldquo;Even though Alvaro doesn&rsquo;t play a whole lot, he&rsquo;s a key part of our team,&rdquo; said Gonzalez, who shares special Hialeah Gardens High School bonds with Simoza. &ldquo;I talk to him every once in a while just to keep his head up and keep going. He was here last year so now the offense is coming natural to him. He looked comfortable.&rdquo;</p> <p>Simoza knocked down a triple with 5:17 to play in the first half to extend the Buccaneers&rsquo; lead to 37-17 on one of Deric Hill&rsquo;s five assists. Hill also had eight points and two steals.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re happy with the win,&rdquo; Gonzalez said. &ldquo;But now it&rsquo;s on to the next task, and that&rsquo;s Florida Memorial on Tuesday.&rdquo;</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mb1121.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE&nbsp;</a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25416Fri, 21 Nov 2014 22:35:00 GMTMen's Hoops: Martin Begins Pro Career in Bolivia<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25415___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>Former Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball player Aaron Martin is beginning his professional career in Bolivia.</p> <p>Martin, a 6-6 forward who spent the 2012-13 season with the Buccaneers, landed a spot on the Universidad Mayor de San Andres Bolmar club in the Bolivian Basketball League. He debuted in the BBL Libabol tournament in October.</p> <p>Martin averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, while starting eight of the 27 games he appeared in for the Bucs. He shot 34.4 percent from three-point range, and his 251 points that season was third most on the team. Martin led Barry in free throw shooting at 78.2 percent.</p> <p>He scored a season-high 21 points in an overtime win over Florida Tech on Jan. 2, 2013. Martin had 20 points against Puerto Rico-Mayaguez on Nov. 19, 2012. He scored 15 points at Florida Southern on Jan. 5, 2013. He led the Bucs in scoring in six games, reaching double figures in all of them.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re happy for Aaron that he earned a chance to continue playing basketball at the next level,&rdquo; Bucs assistant coach Ryan Saunders said. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s a good perimeter shooter and a great guy to have on a roster. We look forward to keeping tabs on him as he begins his professional career.&rdquo;</p> <p>A Capitol Heights, Md., product, Martin transferred to Barry after one season at NCAA Division I South Carolina State, where he averaged 5.7 points and 3.9 rebounds per game as a junior.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25415Fri, 21 Nov 2014 15:12:00 GMTNo. 22 Men's Hoops Host Mayaguez 7:30 p.m. Friday<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25408___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. &ndash; When Deric Hill decided to transfer to Barry University to play basketball, he was hoping for big things.</p> <p>Last year, the Buccaneers point guard was fourth in the nation in assists and seventh in steals per game. So yeah, that&rsquo;s pretty big. But he has other things in mind this year &ndash; agendas that are even more grandiose.</p> <p>First things, first. Hill and BarryU host Puerto Rico-Mayaguez 7:30 p.m. Friday in the second regular season game of the year. The game will air on the <strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">Buccaneers Broadcast Network</span></strong> with<span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong> Danny Rabinowitz</strong></span> handling the call.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think we take the same route as we did playing against JWU, and we take the same to playing against Puerto Rico-Mayaguez,&rdquo; said Hill, who had seven assists and scored eight points in the Bucs&rsquo; opening-game win over Johnson &amp; Wales.</p> <p>Mayaguez (1-1) is coming off a 12-point loss at Lynn Wednesday after the Tarzans won their opener against National Association of Basketball Coaches NCAA Division II preseason No. 5-ranked Montevallo . All five Tarzans starters scored in double figures against Lynn, combining for 57 of Mayaguez&rsquo;s 77 points.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/PzWZuQFMm5E?list=UUg39y0CICWw6oeE9Rm2tllA" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>&ldquo;They have a very balanced scoring attack across the board,&rdquo; Bucs assistant coach Justin Furr said. &ldquo;Their relentlessness and ability to keep fighting means they&rsquo;re never out of a game. Their guards have an ability to make shots, and their bigs are very skilled inside. Mayaguez presents matchup challenges for us at every position.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry held JWU to 32.1 percent field goal shooting, allowing nine field goals in each half. Counting their two exhibition games against Division I top-10 teams, the Bucs have outrebounded all of their opponents thus far. In fact, BarryU&rsquo;s three-game rebounding edge against Louisville, Florida and Johnson &amp; Wales is 146-112. Only one party from that triumvirate &ndash; Louisville -- grabbed more than 40 rebounds against the Buccaneers. Barry has pulled down over 50 boards in two of those games, including against the Cardinals.</p> <p>&ldquo;Our defense is actually better than it was last year,&rdquo; said Hill, who had three steals in the opener. &ldquo;We established that.&rdquo;</p> <p>Defense is a hallmark of second-year coach Butch Estes&rsquo; keys to success. So far, so good. Of course, these Bucs realize there&rsquo;s a long way to go. They also know the No. 22 national ranking they picked up in the first Division II Sports Information Directors of America Media Poll released this week means nothing in November.</p> <p>&ldquo;It makes us feel good, but last year we were ranked for a week, and right after that we lost a game to Florida Southern, and that unranked us,&rdquo; said Hill, whose team was not in the NABC preseason poll and is 76<sup>th</sup> in the algorithm-based Bennent Rank.</p> <p>&ldquo;So I don&rsquo;t think we need to get too cocky about it. We just need to keep playing the basketball we&rsquo;ve been playing.&rdquo;</p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182128&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank"><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>LIVE STATS</strong></span></a></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=182128&amp;streamType=video"><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">LIVE STREAM</span></strong></span></a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25408Thu, 20 Nov 2014 17:49:00 GMTMen's Basketball Ranked No. 22 in Nation in D2SIDA Media Poll<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25405___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>Barry University men&rsquo;s basketball team is ranked No. 22 in the first NCAA Division II College Sports Information Directors of America Media Poll.</p> <p>The Buccaneers, who enter Friday&rsquo;s 7:30 p.m. home game against Puerto Rico-Mayaguez with a 1-0 record, received 51 points in the D2SIDA national poll.</p> <p>No. 1 West Liberty (W.

It marked the Buccaneers fifth straight win over the previously unbeaten Wildcats in the series history &ndash; this one the by the widest of margins.</p> <p>The win marked the Bucs third straight season opener &ndash; this one the most impressive. The 1,267 fans nearly matched last year&rsquo;s home opener of 1,273 inside the 1,500-seat HSC confines.</p> <p>Barry shot 50 percent in the opening half, building a 45-28 lead, and never looked back. The Buccaneers held the Wildcats (4-1) to nine field goals in each half, while knocking down 34 shots of their own.</p> <p>Junior forward Yunio Barrueta had 29 points and 10 rebounds, going 11 of 15 from the field. He was five of eight from 3-point range in 33 minutes. Albany junior transfer Anders Haas scored 17 points on six of 10 shooting, while finishing with four rebounds and a steal in his Buccaneers debut.</p> <p>&ldquo;Anders did a really good moving the ball and picking his shots,&rdquo; assistant coach Mike Bradley said. &ldquo;He didn&rsquo;t force anything, and he let his offensive game come to him. That&rsquo;s one of the things we come to expect from Anders.&rdquo;</p> <p>In a game requiring only one lead change &ndash; Barry had to overcome an 11-7 just 3:30 after the tipoff &ndash; the Bucs took control for good on Barrueta&rsquo;s dunk at the 15:51 mark. His jam followed a Deric Hill 3-pointer, and was part of a 12-0 run over a 2:38 span. Haas&rsquo; second straight triple with 3:54 left in the opening half gave the Bucs a 20-point lead.</p> <p>Barry outscored Johnson &amp; Wales, 36-12, in the paint. The Bucs outproduced the Wildcats, 25-9, in turnover scoring. Barry had a 31-12 edge in second chance points, and outscored JWU, 14-2, in transition.</p> <p>Barrueta's five triples were a career-high.</p> <p>&ldquo;It can always be better,&rdquo; Barrueta said, half-kidding.</p> <p>Senior guard Juan Ferrales had 12 points, four rebounds and a block. Hill finished with eight points, seven assists, three steals and four rebounds. Senior forward Savad Garner, whose fast start kept the Buccaneers&rsquo; offense alive early, had eight points, seven boards and a steal. Both Ferrales and Garner were four of nine from the field.</p> <p>Sophomore guard Arie Williams canned two of his four triple tries, and finished with a steal in 14 minutes. Barry&rsquo;s 6-foot-8 power forward/centers Tray Leonard and Jevoni Robinson each had seven rebounds. Robinson also had a monster block in the waning seconds of the opening half.</p> <p>All 14 Bucs saw time on the floor in a game where 66.7 percent free throw shooting never had an impact. JWU&rsquo;s Ricardo Suarez and Luke Walters each scored 10 points.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m trying to develop that bench, I&rsquo;m trying to play a lot of guys,&rdquo; Bucs second-year coach Butch Estes said. &ldquo;There was a mistake on my part because we didn&rsquo;t play so well when I went to the bench, but we got a lot of people into the game, and it is what it is.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry, which will host Puerto Rico-Mayaguez next Friday at 7:30 p.m., outrebounded JWU, 51-32. Including the exhibition losses to No. 8 Louisville and No. 7 Florida, that makes three straight games in which Barry has won the battle on the boards.</p> <p>&ldquo;We just have a lot of guys that have that ability to get the ball," Estes said. "My biggest concern tonight was turnovers. There was some where we were trying to make the brilliant play."</p> <p>Lack of brilliance or not, it was a 38-point win the Bucs will hold onto for keeps.</p> <p><a href="https://webadmin.barry.edu:446/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2015/mb1114.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25389Sat, 15 Nov 2014 00:35:00 GMTMen's Hoops Open Season Friday vs. Wildcats<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25380___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. &ndash; Butch Estes doesn&rsquo;t need to think long to remember yesteryear. Not after Johnson &amp; Wales gave then Barry University&rsquo;s first-year men&rsquo;s basketball coach&rsquo;s team fits in the season opener.</p> <p>Guess what, opening night is right around the corner, and the Wildcats will be on the other side of the floor again.</p> <p>Barry hosts Johnson &amp; Wales 7:30 p.m. Friday in the Health &amp; Sports Center. The Wildcats are 4-0 entering the game.</p> <p>&ldquo;They&rsquo;re a pretty athletic, high-energy bunch of kids who are off to a pretty good start,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;I think the challenge for us is the mental part of the game after playing the opponents we&rsquo;ve played in preseason. These kids are very capable of playing us to a very competitive game. I&rsquo;m concerned that we&rsquo;re mature enough and experienced enough and have the proper leadership to really be ready to play on Friday night.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry owns a 4-0 series record against JWU, having won last year&rsquo;s game at the Wildcat Center in North Miami, 83-73, in front of a not-a-seat-available crowd of 1,017. The last three meetings have been decided by 11 points or less, including an eight-point Bucs win on Nov. 10, 2012 at home.</p> <p>Of course, all of that means nothing now as the new season wipes the slate clean for both schools. In the exhibition season this year, the Bucs dropped a pair of games against two Top 8-ranked NCAA Division I teams at Louisville and Florida. Now the real season begins. How all that factors into Friday&rsquo;s opener is still to be determined, but right now there&rsquo;s a buzz around BarryU.</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/nofyUm5idvs?list=UUg39y0CICWw6oeE9Rm2tllA" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>&nbsp;&ldquo;The pulse is pretty good,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;I think people are excited about our team. I think our team&rsquo;s excited about our team. And candidly even as a coach, I&rsquo;m always a little more guarded &hellip; we have potential to be very good. I think we have a lot of the parts that you would want in a good basketball team. I think we&rsquo;re all optimistic about it. I just think, you know, you hear the coach speak all the time, &lsquo;We&rsquo;ve got to stay grounded. We&rsquo;ve got to stay with the process. We&rsquo;ve got to make sure we&rsquo;re doing the daily things, and not take anybody for granted and be ready to play each night, and play the best we can.&rsquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;As far as talent, we do have some good talent. We have experience. So yeah, I think there&rsquo;s a lot of optimism and excitement and encouragement and anticipation on behalf of anybody who&rsquo;s associated with this basketball team.&rdquo;</p> <p>Senior guards Deric Hill (10.8 ppg, 7.6 apg) and Juan Ferrales (15.7 ppg, .426 3-point FG %), junior forward Yunio Barrueta (14.1 ppg, 9.0 reb) and senior forward Savad Garner (9.4 ppg, 6.6 reb) all were starters last year. Sophomores Adrian Gonzalez (11.5 ppg, .545 FG) and Arie Williams (4.9 ppg, .379 3-point) played significant roles in their first year in Estes&rsquo; system. With the addition of 6-foot-8 power forward/centers Jevoni Robinson and Tray Leonard, both of which had double-doubles at No. 8 Louisville in the exhibition, and shooting guard Anders Haas, one of six Division I transfers on this team, the Bucs bench is deeper than it has been in a long time. Especially considering sophomore forward Alvaro Simoza and junior guard Toure Hunt also have familiarity with Buccaneers basketball. Newcomers Kendall Leslie, Josh Irving and Charles Agumagu add extra depth and athleticism.</p> <p>&ldquo;I do believe we&rsquo;re playing an exciting brand of basketball,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s kind of a high-flying, up-tempo (style). It&rsquo;s really fun to watch. It tends to get crowds pretty excited if it goes well. Anytime you&rsquo;re an institution like Barry, we have to work at it.&rdquo;</p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>POST-GAME AT BUCKY&rsquo;S COVE</strong></span></p> <p>Speaking of which, after the home opener, the Buccaneers will begin a new tradition with a post-game gathering in the newly-renovated Bucky&rsquo;s Cove in the Landon Student Union on campus, where fans and students can interact with the coaches and players after the game.</p> <p>&ldquo;I am so excited about that,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s just right down my alley. I think in my past experiences, going to a basketball game has to become part of a quality of a student&rsquo;s life while at college. It&rsquo;s happening, it&rsquo;s fun, it&rsquo;s exciting, it&rsquo;s where you want to be. We are in the process of trying to create that atmosphere here, and I think this post-game celebration, or whatever it might be called, is just a beginning step because one of the important things is that our athletes are able to interact with our students. This certainly is creating an atmosphere where that will be very easy and very well-received by both parties. It goes in the category of fun. It goes in the category of making our players feel that they are special, and that they are creating an experience that they are making the student experience more fun here. I just think it&rsquo;s all positive in all directions, and I know we&rsquo;ll have to be patient with it because the first night it may not be full, but let&rsquo;s evaluate it at the end of a year, and see how we do.&rdquo;</p> <p><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>BACK TO THE GAME</strong></span></p> <p>Before the post-game festivities, there&rsquo;s a game to be played. One with cross-town bragging rights and pride involved. Estes insists his team will get the message.</p> <p>&ldquo;It will be stressed,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m also trying to, in practice this week, make sure they have honestly an uncomfortable week. I want them to be uncomfortable. The intensity with which we&rsquo;re approaching the opening game &hellip; it&rsquo;s a little bit more than normal. But there is an element, most players are pretty excited about the opening night. Motivation, usually on the opening night, is not a big thing because it is the first game of the season, (and) we have been through two straight losses even though we played well. So I anticipate us being ready, but with that said, they have some talented players. They have a guard that can really shoot the ball, they have a power forward that&rsquo;s really versatile, who can score in multiple ways. They have a center that&rsquo;s absolutely the same size as Tray Leonard. He&rsquo;s 6-7, weighs about 270. It&rsquo;s gonna be like two sumo wrestlers down there in the post. We may have to get two or three referees just for that particular matchup.&rdquo;</p> <p>JWU&rsquo;s Jumaoke Smith, Josh Medina, Luke Walters, Ricardo Suarez, Frank Bennett and Joel Kukulu are all capable double-figure scorers who&rsquo;ve proven that in the Wildcats&rsquo; four games this year.</p> <p>&ldquo;This is a team that&rsquo;s got some ability, and then you add on the fact that we&rsquo;re their big game, they&rsquo;re gonna bring a huge crowd over here,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;It should be a tremendous atmosphere here for opening night.&rdquo;&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/portal.htm?eventId=173114&amp;streamType=video" target="_blank">LIVE STREAM</a></p> <p><a href="http://portal.stretchinternet.com/barry/stats.htm?eventId=173114&amp;streamType=stats" target="_blank">LIVE STATS</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25380Wed, 12 Nov 2014 22:07:00 GMTMen's Basketball Volunteers for Leukemia Society<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25352___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>Barry University's men's basketball team volunteered part of its afternoon Friday loading a truck with supplies that will be transported to Bayside for the upcoming Light the Night Walk.</p> <p>The Buccaneers' assistance with the Leukemia Society is part of a multiple-event, two-week service initiative to give back to the community.</p> <p>Barry coach Butch Estes likes to refer to his team's ongoing community service project as "people helping people."&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25352Sat, 08 Nov 2014 00:27:00 GMTMen's Hoops Tests No. 7 Florida in Exhibition<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/25344___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>GAINESVILLE, Fla. &ndash; What Barry University&rsquo;s men&rsquo;s basketball team can take away from its encounter with a second Top 10 opponent in the exhibition season is simple: the Buccaneers have potential.</p> <p>Barry fell to No. 7 Florida, 79-70, Thursday in an exhibition game at the O&rsquo;Connell Center in front of 9,016 on a day they reiterated glimpses of what began to rear its head in Kentucky.</p> <p>&ldquo;They&rsquo;re gonna have a really good year, I would think,&rdquo; Florida coach Billy Donovan said of the Bucs. &ldquo;They&rsquo;ve got a nice team. They play fast, they play hard, they&rsquo;re physical. They&rsquo;ve obviously got a lot of pretty good transfers that are in there right now. This was very helpful for us. Hopefully the last two exhibition games will be good for their program.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry outrebounded the Gators, an NCAA Final Four team from a year ago, as it did against No. 8 Louisville six days earlier. The Buccaneers grabbed 13 of their 42 rebounds on the offensive end. Florida also had 13 boards on the offensive glass, and finished with 39.</p> <p>The Bucs whittled an 18-point deficit with 18:53 to go down to 10 when Tray Leonard scored in the paint at the at the 7:39 mark. Yunio Barrueta&rsquo;s field goal 1:02 later pulled Barry within 63-54. Florida increased its lead back to 14 before Bucs sophomore guard Arie Williams buried his second three-point field goal with 3:00 left on the clock.</p> <p>Barry senior point guard Deric Hill sank two free throws a minute later, Leonard hit a driving layup, and Anders Haas sank two free throws in the final minute as the Bucs kept the deficit in single digits.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think it doesn&rsquo;t hurt our confidence,&rdquo; Buccaneers coach Butch Estes said. &ldquo;You want to play people better than you are so you get better, so I hope that&rsquo;s part of our goal.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Bucs shot 40.7 percent in the second half, outscoring the Gators, 38-33. Barry outscored Florida, 22-18, in the paint. The Buccaneers went 24 of 62 from the field for 38.7 percent. The Gators shot 41.8 percent on 28 of 67 shooting.</p> <p>&ldquo;We have a lot of work to do offensively,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re not moving the ball as effectively as we need to to be successful in our league.

Barry was credited with 11 assists.</p> <p>Florida improved to 63-13-1 in exhibitions, including a 38-2-1 mark under Donovan, whose history with Estes dates back 20 years.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m a big fan of Butch,&rdquo; Donovan said. &ldquo;Butch and I coached against each other when he was at Furman and I was at Marshall.

Only thing is he&rsquo;s still trying to figure out how he was penalized for getting punished.</p> <p>As a senior in 2006-07, Saunders under then-coach Cesar Odio, met defending NCAA champion Florida in an exhibition game in Gainesville. What Barry University&rsquo;s current assistant coach would like to forget is the elbow he took in the face from Al Horford, now in his eighth season with the Atlanta Hawks, in that Nov. 5, 2006 game.</p> <p>&ldquo;Still recovering, and trying to figure out how I got called for a foul on the play,&rdquo; Saunders said late Tuesday night.</p> <p>Thursday, Saunders and the Bucs will make a return to Gainesville to play their second Top 10 opponent in six days when they meet the No. 7 Gators in a 7 p.m. tipoff at the O&rsquo;Connell Center. The game will be carried on the SEC Network+/WatchESPN.com and WatchESPN app via live streaming. Larry Vettel and Mark Wise will handle the call.</p> <p>Barry, which played at No. 8 Louisville on Saturday, will mark the first opponent for the Gators this season. Both the Bucs and Gators open the regular season Friday, Nov. 14.</p> <p>Florida junior guard Michael Frazier II, who set the school single-season record with 118 three-pointers last season, is the Gators&rsquo; only returning starter from a Final Four team that went 36-3 last year. &nbsp;He averaged 12.4 points per game while shooting .447 from beyond the arc. Junior forward Dorian Finney-Smith averaged 8.7 ppg and 6.7 rebounds. Sophomore guard Kasey Hill was good for 5.5 ppg and 3.1 assists as a backup. Hill was named to the Bob Cousy Award watch list Tuesday as a candidate for the nation&rsquo;s top point guard.</p> <p>The Buccaneers shot poorly in the exhibition opener, going 24 of 72 for 33.3 percent &ndash; an area that will need to improve in a hurry as the regular season approaches.</p> <p>&ldquo;We didn&rsquo;t shoot it well,&rdquo; Barry coach Butch Estes said, following the loss to the Cardinals. &ldquo;We had a lot of shots that we normally take that most often we&rsquo;ll put down. We had a lot of really good shots that didn&rsquo;t go down.&rdquo;</p> <p>Still, Barry was not all gloom and doom at the KFC Yum! Center. Not after welcoming the addition of 6-foot-8 power forwards Tray Leonard and Jevoni Robinson for the first time in Buccaneer Red Saturday. Both delivered double-doubles, accounting for 28 points and 24 rebounds, 15 of which were on the offensive glass. Robinson also had three assists and three steals. Combined, the two shot 10 of 19 from the field.</p> <p>The Gators were one of the nation&rsquo;s better defensive teams a year ago, allowing 57.8 points per game.</p> <p>For Saunders, who along with the Bucs will see another Horford on the floor this time around as Michigan transfer Jon Horford, the younger brother of Al, suits up for the first time as a Gator.</p> <p>&ldquo;We are excited for another opportunity to face one of the best teams and best coaches in all of college basketball,&rdquo; Saunders said. &ldquo;The experience we gain from playing a consistent, tough and disciplined team like Florida will help us set the bar extremely high as we look to begin our regular season. We sort of put our guys through the ringer with the exhibition schedule, but they have been more than willing to accept the challenges that these teams present.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong> Barry lost to No. 8 Louisville, 91-71, on Saturday in the KFC Yum!

He shot four of five from the floor in the first half.</p> <p>&ldquo;I just wanted to get my teammates pumped,&rdquo; said Robinson, who recorded his double-double in 23 minutes. &ldquo;I believe that dunk excited them a little bit more to be more motivated to come out here and just want to compete.&rdquo;</p> <p>Leonard, a Fordham transfer, also had a double-double with 15 points and 11 boards while hitting five of eight. Leonard scored 11 points in the second half, including a jump hook over Mathiang and a triple from the top of the key that drew the Buccaneers within 78-64 with 4:29 to play.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was kind of a challenge, but I believe if you go out there and play hard, play hard every day you can compete with anybody,&rdquo; said Leonard, who along with Yunio Barrueta had second half blocks. &ldquo;</p> <p><iframe src="//www.youtube.com/embed/lvF5KMOopbU?list=UUg39y0CICWw6oeE9Rm2tllA" frameborder="10" align="left" width="560" height="315"></iframe></p> <p>Williams, a sophomore from Chicago, had 10 points and a steal, going 3-for-3 from the field including two triples.

Hill also scored nine points in his second game in the Yum! Center.

But the Cardinals&rsquo; inside presence dominated the Bucs, 50-30. Louisville parlayed 20 turnovers into 25 points. The Buccaneers converted 12 Cards&rsquo; turnovers into 16 points.</p> <p>The Buccaneers will draw another top-10 exhibition test 7 p.m. Thursday at No. 7 Florida at the O&rsquo;Connell Center in Gainesville in a game to be broadcast on ESPN&rsquo;s SEC Network.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m ready,&rdquo; Leonard said. &ldquo;Every time I step on the court, I kind of take it personal from the things I&rsquo;ve been through to get here to Barry.

The fundraising total surpassed the previous division record, set in 2012-13, by more than $50,000.</p> <p>Barry's efforts helped propel the Sunshine State Conference to third place among the 24 conference in Division II. The Bucs were responsible for more than half of the conference's total of $36,496.58.</p> <p>Since Division II student-athletes on the national Student-Athlete Advisory Committee <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WASVVjNNdY&amp;feature=youtu.be" target="_blank">started its alliance</a> with Make-A-Wish in 2003, the division has raised nearly $3.5 million for the national nonprofit &ndash; helping to fund more than 470 wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Last year alone, student-athletes raised enough to help grant about 70 wishes. Whether it&rsquo;s a vacation the child has always dreamed of, a visit with a favorite celebrity or tickets to cheer on a beloved sports team, the wishes the organization grants are designed to provide a positive, energizing experience for children battling medical conditions.</p> <p>&ldquo;For 11 years, NCAA Division II student-athletes have taken the skills that have allowed them to succeed in athletic competitions, such as teamwork and self-determination, and channeled them toward helping us grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions,&rdquo; said David Williams, CEO and president of Make-A-Wish America. &ldquo;This record donation &ndash; along with the more than $3 million raised for Make-A-Wish in previous years &ndash; will forever change the lives of the wish kids who have had their one true wish granted thanks in part to the efforts of NCAA Division II student athletes throughout the country.&rdquo;</p> <p>Nearly 77 percent of schools in Division II participated in the most recent fundraising efforts. Of those, 141 schools exceeded their total raised in 2012-13 and consequently received matching donations through Make-A-Wish America of up to $1,000 for local Make-A-Wish chapters. The matching donations amounted to more than $75,000.</p> <p>Shanteona Keys, a member of the Division II national SAAC and the Georgia College women&rsquo;s basketball team, said her school managed to bring in $9,385 through events such as a formal dance, a tennis tournament and a raffle. &ldquo;I think it has a lot to do with the student-athletes and the attributes we like to hold to high esteem,&rdquo; Keys said.</p> <p>At times, the division&rsquo;s Make-A-Wish alliance provides student-athletes with a front-row seat to see their hard work pay off. &nbsp;Because the money raised during the previous academic year by five Division II institutions exceeded the national average cost of a wish, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YM12e57ipCw" target="_blank">Barry University</a>, <a href="http://www.yourerie.com/news/news-article/d/story/warren-teen-gets-wish-granted/13239/scVu44QRwU62IryCztSXxA" target="_blank">Edinboro University</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLBPVbHBxxU" target="_blank">Molloy College</a>, <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXx0iadPsRc" target="_blank">Saint Leo University</a> and the <a href="http://www.wsbtv.com/videos/news/boy-with-cancer-gets-wish-to-become-ung-nighthawk/vCR8wS/" target="_blank">University of North Georgia</a> were each given the opportunity in February to host a wish celebration.</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s efforts raising funds and hosting this celebration helped Make-A-Wish send Gustavo, a Miami-area youth, to visit one of Silicon Valley&rsquo;s leading technological companies.</p> <p>"The entire university, actually for the first time, really got behind everything that was going on," Barry Dean of Human Performance and Leisure Sciences Darlene Kluka said. "You can't ask for anything more than that."</p> <p>Barry helped announce Gustavo&rsquo;s wishbefore the men&rsquo;s basketball game at Health &amp; Sports Center on Homecoming Weekend.</p> <p>"Our student-athletes have been phenomenal in their efforts to raise money to make wishes come true,"&nbsp;Barry University President Sister Linda Bevilacqua said. "Not only are they excelling in the classroom in their studies, but they're also, as members of the Sunshine State Conference, contributing to the goals of NCAA Division II. The energy that they put into raising money each year to make wishes come true with the partnership of the Make-A-Wish Foundation ... we're very proud of them, and what they have achieved."</p> <p>Division II is already looking to build upon its fundraising success, with its fourth annual Week of Wishes running Oct. 3-15. During that time, the division is encouraging its schools to host Make-A-Wish fundraisers at campus sporting events and to spread awareness of the cause on social media.</p> <h2>Top 10 Institutions:</h2> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td>1.</td> <td>University of North Georgia</td> <td align="right">$21,413.00</td> </tr> <tr bgcolor="#AC1A2F"> <td><strong><span style="color: #ffffff;">2.</span></strong></td> <td><strong><span style="color: #ffffff;">Barry University</span></strong></td> <td align="right"><strong><span style="color: #ffffff;">$20,220.50</span></strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td>3.</td> <td>Edinboro University of Pennsylvania</td> <td align="right">$10,767.98</td> </tr> <tr> <td>4.</td> <td>Georgia College and State University</td> <td align="right">$9,385.00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>5.</td> <td>Delta State University</td> <td align="right">$8,154.62</td> </tr> <tr> <td>6.</td> <td>Wingate University</td> <td align="right">$7,030.00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>7.</td> <td>Indiana University of Pennsylvania</td> <td align="right">$6,891.92</td> </tr> <tr> <td>8.</td> <td>Flagler College</td> <td align="right">$6,555.00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>9.</td> <td>Saint Leo University</td> <td align="right">$6,000.35</td> </tr> <tr> <td>10.</td> <td>Grand Valley State University</td> <td align="right">$6,000.00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>10.</td> <td>University of Findlay</td> <td align="right">$6,000.00</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Conference Rankings:</h2> <table> <tbody> <tr> <td>1.</td> <td>Peach Belt Conference</td> <td align="right">$55,293.61</td> </tr> <tr> <td>2.</td> <td>Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference</td> <td align="right">$43,400.65</td> </tr> <tr bgcolor="#000066"> <td><strong><span style="color: #ffffff;">3.</span></strong></td> <td><strong><span style="color: #ffffff;">Sunshine State Conference</span></strong></td> <td align="right"><strong><span style="color: #ffffff;">$36,496.58</span></strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td>4.</td> <td>Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference</td> <td align="right">$30,422.54</td> </tr> <tr> <td>5.</td> <td>South Atlantic Conference</td> <td align="right">$28,133.48</td> </tr> <tr> <td>6.</td> <td>Pacific West Conference</td> <td align="right">$25,912.66</td> </tr> <tr> <td>7.</td> <td>California Collegiate Athletic Association</td> <td align="right">$25,795.79</td> </tr> <tr> <td>8.</td> <td>East Coast Conference</td> <td align="right">$21,104.48</td> </tr> <tr> <td>9.</td> <td>Gulf South Conference</td> <td align="right">$20,935.09</td> </tr> <tr> <td>10.</td> <td>Great Lakes Valley Conference</td> <td align="right">$20,659.67</td> </tr> <tr> <td>11.</td> <td>Northeast-10 Conference</td> <td align="right">$16,417.92</td> </tr> <tr> <td>12.</td> <td>Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference</td> <td align="right">$14,567.00</td> </tr> <tr> <td>13.</td> <td>Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association</td> <td align="right">$14,248.58</td> </tr> <tr> <td>14.</td> <td>Lone Star Conference</td> <td align="right">$10,839.58</td> </tr> <tr> <td>15.</td> <td>Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference</td> <td align="right">$10,244.36</td> </tr> <tr> <td>16.</td> <td>Heartland Conference</td> <td align="right">$8,860.47</td> </tr> <tr> <td>17.</td> <td>Conference Carolinas</td> <td align="right">$8,852.54</td> </tr> <tr> <td>18.</td> <td>Great Midwest Athletic Conference</td> <td align="right">$7,049.67</td> </tr> <tr> <td>19.</td> <td>Great Northwest Athletic Conference</td> <td align="right">$5,830.31</td> </tr> <tr> <td>20.</td> <td>Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference</td> <td align="right">$5,703.99</td> </tr> <tr> <td>21.</td> <td>Great American Conference</td> <td align="right">$5,515.42</td> </tr> <tr> <td>22.</td> <td>Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference</td> <td align="right">$5,107.81</td> </tr> <tr> <td>23.</td> <td>Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association</td> <td align="right">$4,673.69</td> </tr> <tr> <td>24.</td> <td>Mountain East Conference</td> <td align="right">$3,487.50</td> </tr> <tr> <td>25.</td> <td>Independents</td> <td align="right">$1,121.40</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=25134Mon, 06 Oct 2014 15:39:00 GMTMen's Basketball Tryouts Sept. 24 in Barry Gym<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/24972___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p><strong>What:</strong> Barry University Men&rsquo;s Basketball Tryouts<br /><strong>When:</strong> Wednesday, Sept. 24<br /><strong>Time:</strong> 7:30 p.m.<br /><strong>Where:</strong> Health &amp;

It is the same team Raymonvil&rsquo;s old Bucs teammate Willie Whitfield spent his first two years playing for professionally.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s very gratifying,&rdquo; said Raymonvil, a 5-10 guard who is the lone American representative on this year&rsquo;s ASC Mainz club. &ldquo;By the grace of God I was able to eventually get something. It&rsquo;s about time. I&rsquo;m ready to go to work.&rdquo;</p> <p>In his final season with the Bucs, Raymonvil shot 35.1 percent from the three-point line and helped trigger a key overtime road win at Rollins when he canned a career-best 4 of 5 from beyond the arc to score a season-high 15 points. His 15 points fell four shy of his career high. He was a career .359 shooter from 3-point range. &nbsp;</p> <p>A former Miami Northwestern High product, Raymonvil met with coach Alex Heidbrink in Miami in person, and the German coach who tutored Whitfield had a chance to see him play.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;ve been doing a lot of praying,&rdquo; said Raymonvil, who received mild interest from other teams in Portugal, Dominican Republic and China. &ldquo;This is the only team that fully materialized. It&rsquo;s a more comfortable situation to actually interact with the coach. Just going away to another country, I wanted to make sure &hellip;</p> <p>&ldquo;It feels great.

Director&rsquo;s cup.</p> <p>Barry finished 34<sup>th</sup> in the overall competition, but was first in the spring season thanks to outstanding campaigns by the men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s golf and tennis teams. Men&rsquo;s golf and women&rsquo;s tennis both captured the NCAA Division II National Championship, while women&rsquo;s golf finished second and men&rsquo;s tennis was tied for third.</p> <p>The Bucs posted 373 points in the spring (100 each for men&rsquo;s golf and women&rsquo;s tennis, 90 for women&rsquo;s golf and 83 for men&rsquo;s tennis), to top runner up Armstrong Atlantic&rsquo;s 361.5 points.</p> <p>Barry added 25 points in the fall from women&rsquo;s soccer and 25 in the winter from men&rsquo;s basketball, for a total of 423 points for the year. In the 18 years of the Director&rsquo;s Cup program, the Bucs have finished in the top 20 percent of NCAA Division II 16 times. Since 2009-10, they have ranked in the top five schools in spring season points all five years.</p> <p>The Learfield Sports Directors&rsquo; Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and USA Today.

Albany beat Mount St. Mary's in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament before falling to Florida, an eventual Final Four team whom the Barry is expected to open the exhibition season against in 2014-15.</p> <p>Haas played for State College of Florida-Manatee as a freshman in 2012-13.</p> <p>&ldquo;He&rsquo;s a very gifted offensive player, who has three-point range, can take you off the dribble, and has a mid-range game,&rdquo; Barry head coach Butch Estes said. &ldquo;I see him giving us consistency and depth in the perimeter, and his ability to shoot will help us space the floor.&rdquo;</p> <p>At Albany, Haas scored a season-high 11 points in 10 minutes in an 86-56 win over the University of Maryland Baltimore County, in the America East quarterfinals. He had eight points in 11 minutes in a 70-59 win at Rider.</p> <p>He shot 34 percent from 3-point range, and was an 84.6 percent free throw shooter in a limited role. He appeared in 21 games.</p> <p>&ldquo;He was a highly-touted player, and was looking for a home where he could be a bigger part of the puzzle,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;He&rsquo;s a pass-first, unselfish player who fits our style. He wants to do whatever he can to help our team be successful.&rdquo;</p> <p>Haas attended his final two years of high school at perennial power Bishop O&rsquo;Dowd in Oakland, California, where he averaged 17.9 points and 7.4 assists per game, shooting 46.2 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and 90.1 percent at the free throw line. He was selected to play for the Under-20 Senior Men&rsquo;s Team in Denmark in the summer of 2013.</p> <p>&ldquo;Any time you get a player from an NCAA Tournament school, you&rsquo;ve got to be excited about that,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;I think Anders will bring a great deal of excitement to our team.&rdquo;</p> <p>Haas is the second signee in Barry's recruiting class. The Bucs also landed guard Hunter Osceola, a product of Class 5A state champion American Heritage in Plantation, Florida, in the early signing period.&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=24639Sat, 03 May 2014 16:11:00 GMTBarry Hosts Rising Stars Basketball Camps <img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/24637___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Barry University men's basketball coach Butch Estes will host two summer camps at the school's Health &amp; Sports Center, beginning July 7.</p> <p>Open to kids ages 5-16, the Butch Estes Rising Stars Basketball Camp first session runs July 7-11.

It’s all in the mind<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/24560___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>By Jim McCurdy</p> <p>MIAMI, Fla. &ndash; Barry University softball player Megan Copeland paused as she pondered the question. What is the state of a student-athlete&rsquo;s mind these days?</p> <p>&ldquo;Probably confused,&rdquo; Copeland said, chuckling.</p> <p>From the classroom to the practice field to meetings to competition to social life, college athletes juggle a lot every day. At Barry University, they have an outlet to turn to when the workload becomes overload. Enter sport psychology services.</p> <p>Duncan Simpson, an assistant professor in the Sport, Exercise, and Performance Psychology department at the Miami Shores-based institution, and Lauren Tashman, an assistant professor and Coordinator of Sport Psychology Services, are the backbones behind the program. Both are both Certified Consultants with the Association of Applied Sport Psychology (AASP-CC) and together, with the help of second-year graduate students, they provide valuable resources to Buccaneers athletes off the playing surface.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think the student-athletes have a lot on their plate, and they have a lot of pressures on them, both as a student and as an athlete,&rdquo; said Simpson, who&rsquo;s worked with professional and college athletes. &ldquo;Sometimes, these things they can&rsquo;t talk to their coach about. We provide services, and we provide an expertise where perhaps they can&rsquo;t get expertise in another area.&rdquo;</p> <p>The sport psychology department at Barry assists student-athletes in developing confidence, easing anxiety or pressures of competition and dealing with internal team issues with teammates or coaches.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re just another spoke in the wheel or another service, just like strength and conditioning,&rdquo; Simpson said. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re helping them maximize their mental approach. We&rsquo;re trying to help the athlete be the best student-athlete they can be.&rdquo;</p> <p>When Simpson and Tashman began working with student-athletes four years ago, their efforts were dedicated to a couple teams and limited one-on-one consultations. Now the school&rsquo;s sport psychology services have morphed into working with seven of the Buccaneers sports and 30 individual athletes. Second-year graduate students also work with the athletes under supervision, and receive contact hours for their field of study.</p> <p>Tashman, who also runs a private practice outside of Barry, works with students pursuing degrees in sport psychology and the student-athletes in a multitude of different areas. Those areas include vision training, thinking intentionally to improve mental approach to the game, team effectiveness, team coordination and team dynamics.</p> <p>&ldquo;There&rsquo;s two approaches we can take,&rdquo; said Tashman, who&rsquo;s also worked with Olympic athletes. &ldquo;One is performance enhancement, where we&rsquo;re looking at that athlete who doesn&rsquo;t have any issues, but just wants to work on the mental game to get even better. And there&rsquo;s performance restoration, where there&rsquo;s some problem with performance.&rdquo;</p> <p>Injuries can take a toll on an athlete, not only physically, but mentally. Barry men&rsquo;s soccer goalkeeper Johnny Rodrigues was an honorable mention All-American as a junior in 2011. But an injury in the first preseason game before his senior year sidelined him the rest of the season. His presence on a team that had high expectations, following a second round NCAA Tournament appearance in 2011, carried a lot of weight.</p> <p>After sitting out a year and returning in 2013, his role took on different meaning. When Rodrigues first began using Barry&rsquo;s sport psychology services, he discovered he needed to change the way he communicated with teammates.</p> <p>&ldquo;When I first started, I was working on my emotions,&rdquo; Rodrigues said. &ldquo;Then I started working on how to communicate with people as a captain. I learned you don&rsquo;t communicate with people like a coach. You have to use more of a friendly way to communicate. When I started changing my communication style, I got a great response. Later on, I figured out that you&rsquo;ve got to communicate with different people in different ways. There&rsquo;s not one set of communication skills that you can use for everybody. I think that was really useful in my last year because I was 26 years old, and I was playing with kids that were 18 years old, so there&rsquo;s a different way to communicate with those kids.</p> <p>&ldquo;I have an explosive personality, so for me it was harder to communicate to people. I was always good at listening or being able to assimilate everything that they are saying, but my problem was to express myself.&rdquo;</p> <p>Rodrigues&rsquo; teammate, Thomas Coombes, agrees that developing more effective ways to communicate is crucial to a team&rsquo;s success.</p> <p>&ldquo;The way you say things and the way you view things can alter a lot,&rdquo; Coombes said. &ldquo;It can change for the positive and the negative. You can say the same thing in two different ways, and it can be taken in two different ways.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s sport psychology services emphasize the importance of proper communication, especially as it relates to working within the team concept.</p> <p>&ldquo;Soccer is a difficult sport. You&rsquo;re playing with 10 other people on the field, and it&rsquo;s 10 other opinions,&rdquo; said Bucs women&rsquo;s soccer player Laura Rockel, who&rsquo;s used the services for three years. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s really hard to pinpoint to just one opinion where we all can agree on. With Dr. Tashman and the team, they&rsquo;ve really helped us because that&rsquo;s our issue, and we&rsquo;ve been working on it. You can see it in our success in the fall. Communication played a big role in that. It&rsquo;s helped people grow as a better player and as a better person.&rdquo;</p> <p>Rockel has had to cope with injuries the past two years, preventing her from seeing the field. Using the sport psychology services at Barry has cushioned the disappointment of not playing.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s helping me get past that stage in my life, and it&rsquo;s giving me a better outlook on what I need to do,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;I know from this experience and all the help I&rsquo;ve been getting, it&rsquo;s only helping make me a better player in the long run. It&rsquo;s really helped me grow. This is a process, and I&rsquo;m going to continue using it. It&rsquo;s helped me in many positive ways, and I think other people should utilize it as well.&rdquo;</p> <p>Tashman has worked with Rockel on stress management issues, juggling different demands and coping strategies.</p> <p>&ldquo;Those are very big,&rdquo; Rockel said. &ldquo;They help us on short-term goals and long-term goals. They help us in staying focused on a task at hand. I would say a lot of tools that they&rsquo;ve given me, like the different strategies to help me to focus on one task at hand have really been beneficial for me.&rdquo;</p> <p><strong>Barry launched its sports psychology undergraduate program in the spring of 2013. Barry is the only school in Florida to offer an undergraduate sport psychology degree</strong>. Its mission is to offer students a humanistic and psychological education to prepare them to become effective decision makers, leaders and lifelong learners.</p> <p>&ldquo;This is a vastly growing field,&rdquo; Simpson said. &ldquo;People are starting to recognize the value in it. People are now starting to see the importance of the psychology part in athletics. The U.S. military is the biggest hirer of sports psychology graduates in the US because it&rsquo;s performance. It&rsquo;s how do I cope under pressure? How do I be a good team member? How do I lead? How do I cope with my stress? How do I cope with my resilience? How do I have mental toughness? So whether its exercise, sport or performance, our graduate students can look into a whole host of fields.&rdquo;</p> <p>Surgeons are now using sport psychologists because they see the value in performing in high-stress environments without making mistakes. Athletes hold similar performance expectations.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m really a perfectionist,&rdquo; Rodrigues said. &ldquo;When you have too many things going on in your head &hellip; I felt like the first semester was kind of like a nightmare and then after it was more manageable. The year I got hurt, I would have to study for the GMAT to get into grad school. I had to finish my last semester of undergrad. I had to do rehab. I was on crutches for three months. I was mentally exhausted. Everything was frustrating me.</p> <p>&ldquo;The reason I started working with Duncan, I feel that it really helped me. I was the type of guy if the pen would fall off the table, I would get so mad. Nowadays, I can control that better. That really helped me to handle all the emotions and troubles that I had as I got injured.&rdquo;</p> <p>Simpson has published research which looked looking into mental skills training in intercollegiate athletics. The following are excerpts taken from his research:</p> <p><em>Mental skills training (MST) programs have been shown to improve athletes&rsquo; ability to cope with the pressures of competition (Curry &amp; Maniar, 2003; Thelwell, Greenlees, &amp; Neil, 2006). However, despite the benefits of MST, less than 40% of NCAA Division-I (D-I) schools offer such services to their student-athletes (Wrisberg, Withycombe, Simpson, Loberg, &amp; Reed, 2012). </em></p> <p><em>Whereas, the number of school offering MST services in D-II is likely to be even smaller. This is what makes partnership between the athletics programs and academic programs at Barry so unique. </em></p> <p><em>Research on 2,440 NCAA D-I student-athletes&rsquo; receptivity to MST showed that student-athletes are open to being taught mental skills if it would benefit their performance (Wrisberg, et al., 2009). Furthermore, a majority of student-athletes supported a role for a sport psychology consultant at their university. Research also shows that 84.5% of NCAA D-I coaches support the full-time availability of MST at their university if the services focus on performance enhancement issues as opposed to personal concerns (Wrisberg, Loberg, Simpson, Withycombe, &amp; Reed, 2010). </em></p> <p>Barry men&rsquo;s soccer coach Steve McCrath believes individual awareness of one&rsquo;s self is the first step in the resourcefulness of the sport psychology services.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think the biggest thing is recognition,&rdquo; McCrath said. &ldquo;When someone calls out something in your personality, and you&rsquo;re willing to look at it and say, &lsquo;Hmm.&rsquo; And the &lsquo;Hmm,&rsquo; leads to, &lsquo;Let me ask more questions about strengthening that area versus becoming defensive.&rsquo; I think sport psychology, the way Duncan and Lauren do their job, it&rsquo;s really helping our kids take the second step of after &lsquo;Hmm&rsquo; is how do I make an improvement there? So I think it&rsquo;s been vital in that regard.</p> <p>&ldquo;We&rsquo;re experiencing some success because when the players in their individual meetings with us say, &lsquo;You know coach &hellip; I never thought of that until this, and now I think this way.&rsquo; Or, &lsquo;I&rsquo;m practicing working on this, and I feel much more confident.&rsquo; So I think it&rsquo;s an incredible tool that I think has such great future to it, and the only issue is being willing to go through the growing pains of the failure side like you would as an athlete. But we&rsquo;ve had some good benefit from it, no question.&rdquo;</p> <p>Coombes uses the sport psychology services to get things off his chest, and to see other points of view.</p> <p>&ldquo;They give you a different outlook into your sport,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;If there&rsquo;s something you want to address, it&rsquo;s easier to get it out in the open and get some feedback on it. I&rsquo;ve never really done anything like this, so I came over here with an open mind. I think it should be implemented more. It lets you see something from a different perspective sometimes, which can only benefit the team in some way, and you as an individual.&rdquo;</p> <p>In early March, Coombes tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. During his freshman year, he tore the ACL in his right knee.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s hard to come back and still remain an influence on the team,&rdquo; Coombes said. &ldquo;Duncan is helping me stay positive and stay involved with the team. Our team is trying to become a lot more positive from the influences Duncan has put in place. For me personally, I&rsquo;m trying to remain a key part of the team while not being able to demonstrate what I can do, but taking a different approach to things.&rdquo;</p> <p>Time management is extremely important for student-athletes with all that&rsquo;s going on in their lives.</p> <p>&ldquo;Other students don&rsquo;t always appreciate the amount of work we put in,&rdquo; Coombes said. &ldquo;They say we have it easy because we&rsquo;re athletes, but in reality we have it ten times harder. You&rsquo;ve got to manage your time, but the way you go about it, you can be very negative towards school or you can realize that&rsquo;s effectively the main reason you&rsquo;re here &ndash; to get an education.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry women&rsquo;s tennis player Emma Onila is a self-admitted emotional player. She uses the sport psychology services to tone it down, so to speak.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s really helping me get into a deeper thought in how I control my emotions on the court, a deeper look into the way I can change different strategies and using routines,&rdquo; Onila said. &ldquo;It makes you think more about your self-control and really what matters in your sport. Sometimes as athletes you get really intense into a game, and you don&rsquo;t really think about the mental side anymore because you&rsquo;re so intense in thinking about the score and how you&rsquo;re playing. So I think the mental side is really important, especially for tennis. When you&rsquo;re mentally strong, mentally fit, it all comes together.&rdquo;</p> <p>Onila had always been told she was talented, but she believed she could become a better player if she enhanced the mental side of her game.</p> <p>&ldquo;I felt like talking to a specialist kind of opened my mind to a different side of my sport, and realizing more important things, rather than getting upset,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m learning how to control myself a lot better than I used to. I feel like going through these (sessions), it&rsquo;s kind of helping me mature on the court and off the court. It teaches you, even in life, sometimes things are going to be difficult, and you&rsquo;re going to have days where nothing is going your way. You&rsquo;ve got to learn how to deal with them.&rdquo;</p> <p>On the court, Onila has learned to take a step back when she doesn&rsquo;t feel in control of the match by using breathing techniques or seeking her towel for a reprieve.</p> <p>&ldquo;I feel like it has helped in developing a pretty big part of me as a person,&rdquo; she said. &ldquo;Even on the court because in my first semester, I knew I still played well, but I felt Iike I would get more irritated more often. I wouldn&rsquo;t use as many routines to help me get back on my game. Now I feel like it&rsquo;s much harder for the opponents to get me upset. I feel like I&rsquo;m a much stronger player, knowing how to manage myself when things are not going right.&rdquo;</p> <p>The women&rsquo;s tennis team began using the sport psychology services in 2010-11, a season which culminated with the program&rsquo;s first national championship.</p> <p>&ldquo;Most of our players come from an individual setting, and when you come to college, it&rsquo;s all about team,&rdquo; Bucs women&rsquo;s tennis coach Avi Kigel said. &ldquo;That&rsquo;s something that a lot of them are not familiar with or struggle with. So understanding the team concept, and you can help one another, that&rsquo;s something (Duncan) helps us a lot with for the whole team. We see individual improvement in behavior and the mental toughness, and we see improvement with team chemistry.</p> <p>&ldquo;I think it&rsquo;s good for the team to hear a different opinion from someone that&rsquo;s an outsider who can see a different perspective or who can relate in a different perspective. It can only help. I&rsquo;m definitely convinced that this is the right way.&rdquo;</p> <p>Four of Barry&rsquo;s women&rsquo;s golfers use the sport psychology services.</p> <p>&ldquo;Duncan plays an important role in helping our players talk about the mental side and understanding how important it is to think properly on the golf course,&rdquo; Bucs women&rsquo;s golf coach Shannon Sykora said. &ldquo;I think it&rsquo;s a valuable resource, however I leave that up to the players. I want them to feel comfortable in being able to make their own decision if they want to use a psychologist or if they want to talk to me about it. I feel like it helps them on the golf course in difficult situations.&rdquo;</p> <p>Bucs men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s assistant golf coach Chris Carlin began using the sport psychology services as a player during his junior year at Barry.</p> <p>&ldquo;I wish I would&rsquo;ve used it my freshman and sophomore year because I think it was a big help,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;Mainly, it&rsquo;s just you kind of getting a lot of the stuff out that as an athlete you kind of keep in. Most of the time they&rsquo;re listening and understanding what you&rsquo;re saying, and they kind of redirect your mind in a certain way.&rdquo;</p> <p>Carlin is one of the more decorated men&rsquo;s golfers in school history. He saw the sport psychology services as a means to playing the game with a more stress-free approach.</p> <p>&ldquo;You have so much time to think on the golf course that bad thoughts are going to get in,&rdquo; Carlin said. &ldquo;Over time, it can kind of wear on you a bit. Working with them helped me realize different ways to think on the golf course. If I get in a bad situation, I&rsquo;m able to just stay calm and move on.&rdquo;</p> <p>For some, the idea of seeing a psychologist, even in a sports setting, was an adjustment, maybe even awkward. But afterwards, they&rsquo;ve noticed the benefits.</p> <p>&ldquo;I never really believed in sport psychology, but decided to give it a try the beginning of my junior year,&rdquo; Barry women&rsquo;s golfer Francesca Perini said. &ldquo;I found it to be absolutely great, and it made me understand more about golf and myself. I thought psychologists would just throw theories at me, but instead they only made me realize things I was seeing &lsquo;blurred,&rsquo; and say them out loud in my own words. It helped me tremendously control my nerves on the golf course, and deal better both with good and bad rounds. It also helped in studying for school, and dealing with tough situations in my everyday life. All the graduate assistants are great, and absolutely into the work they're doing. They constantly keep up with us athletes both when we play or not. They came multiple times to the golf course for special sessions, and also came to watch us perform in real tournaments in order to analyze every situation. Talking to some impartial person outside my everyday life made me open myself more, and maybe even realize that some problems weren't actually problems.&rdquo;</p> <p>They say in golf, 10 percent is physical and 90 percent is mental.</p> <p>&ldquo;Going to see a sport psychologist doesn&rsquo;t mean that you are crazy or weak,&rdquo; Buccaneers junior women&rsquo;s golfer Daniela Murray said. &ldquo;On the contrary, it means that you are willing to work on every aspect of your performance to make you even better. The same way athletes work on their physical abilities, they should work on their mental abilities, too.&rdquo;</p> <p>Murray&rsquo;s brother, Patrick, a freshman on the men&rsquo;s golf team, also has benefitted from the sport psychology services.</p> <p>&ldquo;I would definitely recommend the sport psychology services because it can help one improve, not only in the sport he or she practices, but also in their private life,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;One can apply the knowledge gained through those services on to her or his private life. It is important for a student-athlete to have someone to talk to because a student-athlete has to deal with tremendous pressure coming from everywhere, including teachers, parents, coaches and sometimes even from themselves. Talking to someone can help to relieve some of the pressure. Knowing that you have someone to talk to gives a person a certain safety and confidence that he or she is not alone.&rdquo;</p> <p>Tashman sees the importance of developing a growth mindset as paramount these days, especially as it relates to athletes. She believes student-athletes need to focus more on the present moment and the immediate process for a better chance at success.</p> <p>&ldquo;Everything you&rsquo;re doing and everything that happens should be looked at in a way for you to use it as information to get better,&rdquo; Tashman said. &ldquo;I think a lot of times now the student-athlete focuses on just success or failure &hellip; and gets stuck in that, rather than thinking about, &lsquo;OK, so today didn&rsquo;t go how I wanted it to, and maybe it went really badly, but how do I learn from that and keep getting better?&rsquo;&rdquo;</p> <p>For an athlete, it&rsquo;s easy to get caught up the results that come from performance. But how those results are evaluated and compartmentalized may play an even bigger role in terms of future outcomes.</p> <p>&ldquo;We work so much on our physical game that we forget what sports are is mental,&rdquo; Copeland said. &ldquo;We spend four hours at the fields every day, and no time on mental game. Dr. T helps us to think about more areas of our game than just physical. A lot of the stuff that we&rsquo;ve been working on this year has been our attitudes, and how it can affect our teammates that we may not necessarily realize.</p> <p>&ldquo;A lot of us respond to different communication in different ways. We&rsquo;ve learned how to talk to each other when we&rsquo;ve made errors. We learn how we want to be treated. She&rsquo;s helped us to not just think about our sport individually, but think of it more as an aspect of our lives, and not just what we&rsquo;re here to do because that makes it very overwhelming. I know personally that she&rsquo;s helped me forget about everything that&rsquo;s happened in the past, good successes and failures, and to make sure that you&rsquo;re just living in the moment, and not allowing those things to affect you. Past successes and past failures can be really overwhelming. Personally, trying to live up to how I played last year is the hardest thing to do.&rdquo;</p> <p>What is the state of a college athlete&rsquo;s mind?</p> <p>&ldquo;The state of my mind is I&rsquo;m always very tired,&rdquo; Coombes said. &ldquo;I think, &lsquo;Why do I do this?&rsquo; I can kind of see myself being negative sometimes. Then the one day your coach gives you a day off, I find myself sitting in my room and I&rsquo;m bored, and I&rsquo;m like, &lsquo;What am I going to do with my spare time?&rsquo; In reality, I wouldn&rsquo;t change anything about being a student-athlete.&rdquo;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=24560Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:47:00 GMTPalm Beach Atlantic Agrees to Provisional Membership with SSC<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/24492___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>WINTER PARK, Fla. (Conference News) &ndash; The Sunshine State Conference (SSC) has received official acceptance from Palm Beach Atlantic University to become a provisional member of the conference beginning July 1, 2014. Palm Beach Atlantic joins Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, who will also become a provisional member this July.</p> <p>&ldquo;On behalf of the presidents in the Sunshine State Conference, we welcome Palm Beach Atlantic,&rdquo; said Chair of SSC Presidents Council and President/CEO of Nova Southeastern University Dr. George L. Hanbury II. &ldquo;We are excited for the opportunity to grow to 11 member institutions with the acceptance of Embry-Riddle in December and now Palm Beach Atlantic, both as provisional members.&rdquo;</p> <p>PBA will serve a three-year provisional term before becoming a full member of the SSC. The provisional agreement with the SSC requires the institution to meet certain requirements before it can be eligible to compete for conference championships and become a full non-conditional member. If all requirements are met, the Sailfish will begin competing fully in the SSC during the 2017-18 athletic season.</p> <p>&ldquo;The Sunshine State Conference is nationally known as the &lsquo;Conference of Champions&rsquo; and we believe this new athletic affiliation provides a significant competition platform for our student-athletes, who are well known for their commitment to academic excellence, sportsmanship and community outreach,&rdquo; said Palm Beach Atlantic President William M.B. Fleming Jr. &ldquo;The NCAA Division II recognized PBA as a leader in community engagement and the lessons our student-athletes know well will be freely shared with conference members.&rdquo;</p> <p>President Fleming added, &ldquo;The September 2014 opening of the magnificent Marshall and Vera Lea Rinker Athletic Campus and the University&rsquo;s alliance with the Sunshine State Conference ushers in an exciting new era for our students, faculty and Sailfish fans.&rdquo;</p> <p>Located in West Palm Beach, Fla., PBA is no stranger to the SSC. Since earning NCAA Division II full membership prior to the 2007-08 academic year, the Sailfish have been a non-conference South Region opponent for SSC-member institutions the past seven years. PBA is currently an NCAA Division II Independent institution. Prior to its transition to Division II, PBA was a member of the National Athletic Intercollegiate Association (NAIA) Florida Sun Conference (now called The Sun Conference).</p> <p>&ldquo;We are thrilled that Palm Beach Atlantic has accepted our invitation to become a part of what we believe is the top NCAA Division II conference in the country,&rdquo; said SSC Commissioner Ed Pasque.</p> <p>The nine current SSC member institutions, all private schools located in the state of Florida, are: Barry University (Miami Shores), Eckerd College (St. Petersburg), Florida Southern (Lakeland), Florida Institute of Technology (Melbourne), Lynn University (Boca Raton), Nova Southeastern University (Fort Lauderdale), Rollins College (Winter Park) Saint Leo University (Saint Leo) and the University of Tampa.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&ldquo;We are pleased to accept the invitation to join the Sunshine State Conference,&rdquo; said PBA Director of Athletics Carolyn Stone. &ldquo;The membership will provide our student-athletes an outstanding playing experience and promote the brand of both the Conference and University. PBA expects its student-athletes to be men and women of academic ability, integrity, character and drive, which are traits the SSC seeks in their member institutions.&rdquo;<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p>PBA currently sponsors 12 varsity sports including baseball, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s basketball, women&rsquo;s cross country, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s golf, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s soccer, softball, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s tennis and volleyball. As part of the provisional agreement, PBA is required to add men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s lacrosse and men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s distance track by the 2017-18 season. Currently, the Sailfish compete in men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s lacrosse at the club level.</p> <p>The SSC is currently in its first season of men&rsquo;s lacrosse and recently announced its sponsorship of women&rsquo;s lacrosse to begin in the spring of 2015. The addition of women&rsquo;s lacrosse will grow the conference sponsorship to 18 intercollegiate sports that compete in NCAA Division II.</p> <p>More than 2,000 student-athletes currently participate in the SSC in men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s cross country, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s soccer, volleyball, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s basketball, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s swimming, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s golf, men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s tennis, men&rsquo;s lacrosse, baseball, softball and women&rsquo;s rowing.</p> <p>SSC schools have won 84 Division II national championships and have earned national runner-up finishes 71 times. In 2012-13, the conference won six national titles in men&rsquo;s soccer, men&rsquo;s tennis, men&rsquo;s golf, women&rsquo;s golf, baseball and women&rsquo;s rowing. In the same season, four teams were national runners-up in men&rsquo;s swimming, men&rsquo;s golf, women&rsquo;s golf and women&rsquo;s rowing. The conference also captured three individual national titles in men&rsquo;s and women&rsquo;s swimming and one in men&rsquo;s golf.</p> <p>PBA&rsquo;s volleyball team has earned berths to two consecutive NCAA Division II Volleyball Championships, including the No. 2 seed in the 2013 NCAA South Regional hosted by Tampa. In 2012, they were the No. 3 seed and advanced to the South Region final before falling to Tampa. During those two seasons, they had a combined record of 64-8, winning 35 games in 2012.</p> <p>The Sailfish men&rsquo;s soccer, women&rsquo;s tennis and softball programs have also been particularly strong, ranking in their respective national polls annually.</p> <p>Academically, the SSC was named the top Division II conference in Academic Success Rate (ASR) for the seventh-straight year with a graduation rate of 86 percent. A total of 25 SSC teams posted a perfect 100 percent ASR, and eight of the member institutions had at least one program achieve the perfect mark.</p> <p>PBA fits right in with the SSC in academic success having an 86 percent ASR as well. The PBA athletic department also had a cumulative grade-point average of 3.19 during the fall semester for a record-high since joining the NCAA in 2007-08.</p> <p>Since the NCAA Elite 89 award was established in 2009-10, the SSC has had eight student-athletes recognized with the accolade. The award is given to the student-athlete with the highest grade-point average at the final site of their respective NCAA Championship.</p> <p>Located in Winter Park, Fla., the Sunshine State Conference is the only NCAA conference headquartered in the state of Florida. &nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p class="BasicParagraph">&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=24492Mon, 31 Mar 2014 11:13:00 GMTMen's Hoops: Barrueta NABC Second-Team All-District <img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/24429___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Barry University sophomore forward Yunio Barrueta was named to the National Association of Basketball Coaches All-South District Second Team Wednesday.</p> <p>A 6-foot-6, 218-pound forward from Miami who transferred from NCAA Division I East Tennessee State, Barrueta averaged 14.1 points and a team-best nine rebounds per game, shot .458 from the floor, and led the Buccaneers with 30 blocks.

Third-seeded Delta State (25-6) advances to Sunday&rsquo;s South Regional semifinals to play second-seeded Saint Leo.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m really proud of our basketball team,&rdquo; first-year coach Butch Estes said. &ldquo;I felt like we were in a position numerous times in the last two or three minutes of regulation and even midway through the overtime where we could have (won the game). We had opportunities which might have turned the game in our favor, but unfortunately we didn&rsquo;t get the break.&rdquo;</p> <p>It was Barry&rsquo;s first trip to the NCAA Tournament in four years. Delta State improved to 15-13 all-time in 15 NCAA Tournament appearances.</p> <p>This one lived up to the March Madness hoopla as the Buccaneers and Statesmen battled through 15 ties and 19 lead changes in a game where momentum swung back and forth throughout. The Bucs&rsquo; largest lead was seven not even four minutes into the game, while the Statesmen built its largest lead of eight in overtime.</p> <p>Barry junior point guard Deric Hill buried a triple in the closing seconds of the first half as the Buccaneers took a five-point lead into the break. The Bucs shot 44.8 percent from the field in the first half, hitting 13 of 29 shots. Barry connected on 8 of 15 3-point field goals for 53 percent. The Statesmen shot 56.5 percent from the floor, going 13 of 23. Delta State was 3 of 11 from long range.</p> <p>Delta State opened the second half with a 9-0 run over the first 3:58. Bucs junior forward Savad Garner&rsquo;s basket with 14:13 remaining tied the game for the eighth time, 45-45. Statesmen guard Jack Madgen&rsquo;s 3-pointer with 8:08 remaining opened up a 58-53 Delta State lead.</p> <p>The Buccaneers answered with 12-3 run, triggered by 3-pointers from Juan Ferrales and Yunio Barrueta as Barry reclaimed control, 68-63, at the 3:38 mark. But Delta State tied the game for the 12<sup>th</sup> time on Michael Weems&rsquo; three before seizing the lead again, 70-68, on Madgen&rsquo;s layup with 1:41 to play. Hill sank two free throws to knot the game at 70-70 with 1:09 left.</p> <p>Both teams missed scoring opportunities in the ensuing two possessions before Garner forced a Statesmen turnover with 1.8 seconds left underneath Delta State&rsquo;s basket. That gave Barry a last-second chance in regulation to win it. Senior Garrett Naughton threw a three-quarter court-length pass to Barrueta, who caught the ball in the paint. Barrueta turned to square up, but was falling away from the rim off-balance, and couldn&rsquo;t get the shot to fall.</p> <p>Barry hit the first field goal in overtime when senior forward Magne Fivelstad, who finished with 13 points and nine rebounds in his final collegiate game, knocked down a jumper in the paint. Fivelstad was 5 of 9 from the floor and 3 of 5 from the free throw line. He finished his career with a .582 field goal percentage, which ranks third in school history. He shot 80.7 percent from the line in his two years as a Buccaneer, which ranks fourth all-time.</p> <p>&ldquo;It was a great experience,&rdquo; Fivelstad said. &ldquo;We were picked last in the conference. For us to make it to the NCAA Tournament, I&rsquo;m proud of the guys. I&rsquo;m proud of how they played.&rdquo;</p> <p>Madgen, who had a career-best 32 points on 11 of 18 shooting, including 7 of 13 from long distance, hit a triple with 1:17 left in overtime to push the Statesmen lead back to four. Willie Readus, who had 24 points and 15 rebounds, sank two free throws with 29 seconds left to extend Delta State&rsquo;s lead to 81-73.</p> <p>Ferrales scored with 12 seconds left, and was fouled. After missing the free throw, Barry retained possession. The Buccaneers missed two threes before freshman Adrian Gonzalez scored after grabbing an offensive rebound with four seconds on the clock. But Madgen split a pair at the line on the other end, and Barry couldn&rsquo;t capitalize on its final possession.</p> <p>&ldquo;They were able to execute and make some awfully good plays down the stretch,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;Readus and Madgen had, obviously, great games.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Bucs outscored the Statesmen, 10-5, in second chance opportunities and 22-17 off turnovers. But Barry was 3 of 16 from the field in overtime, going 0 of 7 from 3-point range. Delta State hit 2 of 3 field goals in overtime, while sinking 7 of 10 free throws.</p> <p>Hill finished with 23 points and seven assists, going 4 of 8 from long distance, despite tweaking his ankle after Readus came down on his foot in the first half. Hill sat for six minutes in the opening half, but had his ankle re-taped and re-entered the game.</p> <p>&ldquo;When I first went out there, it was still hurting,&rdquo; said Hill, who finished the year as Barry&rsquo;s single-season leader in assists (215) and steals (70). &ldquo;I wasn&rsquo;t as quick, but I really didn&rsquo;t feel it.&rdquo;</p> <p>Readus, an All-American candidate, was 7 of 9 from the field and 10 of 12 from the stripe. Delta State went to him continually with an effective lob over the top to cause problems for the Buccaneers.</p> <p>&ldquo;Readus, he&rsquo;s really strong and physical, and if he gets you pushed off, he gets too much space between him and the basket,&rdquo; said Fivelstad, who had two assists and a steal. &ldquo;You&rsquo;ve got to trust your help, and if your help is just a split second late, he gets the basket.&rdquo;</p> <p>The Bucs grabbed 15 offensive rebounds to the Statesmen&rsquo;s six. Both teams scored 24 points in the paint. Barry outscored Delta State, 6-0, in transition.</p> <p>Barrueta finished with 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists. He capped the season with 22 straight games in double figures. Ferrales had 16 points, going 5 of 12 from the floor and 4 of 8 from 3-point range. Ferrales finished the season with 83 three-pointers, which ranks second all-time in school single-season history.</p> <p>&ldquo;We just have to take this pain, this feeling that we have, and use it as motivation for next season,&rdquo; Hill said. &ldquo;When we have recruits coming in, we&rsquo;ve got to show them the way so we can be prepared for next time.&rdquo;</p> <p>Garner had eight points, four rebounds and a steal. His 87 offensive boards rank sixth among school season leaders.</p> <p>&ldquo;What these guys have done, Magne being a senior, along with Garrett Naughton, have helped us lay the foundation,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;You know, we were preseason picked last in our conference. For us to be in the national tournament is a tremendous tribute to these young guys, and the way they came together as a team. Hopefully, we can build on this. We don&rsquo;t take coming to the national tournament for granted. We realize there are no guarantees, but hopefully it will help us grow as a basketball team and help our recruiting, and we can continue to put out a competitive team in the future.</p> <p>&ldquo;I kid these guys all the time about attitude and gratitude. We&rsquo;re appreciative of the opportunity to be here. Hopefully we can learn from the experience and continue to get better as a program.&rdquo;</p> <p>Fivelstad, last year&rsquo;s Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year at Barry, said there will be brighter days ahead for the Buccaneers.</p> <p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;m just grateful for the opportunity to play with these guys,&rdquo; the Bergen, Norway, native said. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m sure they will be even better next year. The chemistry is there now, and if they get one or two new players who can help the team, sky&rsquo;s the limit.&rdquo;</p> <p><a href="http://www.barry.edu/athletics-update/m-basketball/stats/2014/mbb0315.htm" target="_blank">BOX SCORE</a></p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=24407Sat, 15 Mar 2014 19:22:00 GMTMen's Basketball: Barrueta Named Second-Team All-South Region<img src='http://www.barry.edu/images-news/Top/24394___Selected_1200.jpg' width=100 hight=100 align=left border=1 hspace=10 vspace=10><p>MIAMI SHORES, Fla. -- Barry University sophomore forward Yunio Barrueta (Miami/Hialeah Gardens HS) was named to the Daktronics All-South Region Second Team.</p> <p>Barrueta averaged 14.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per game this year, while shooting 46 percent from the floor.

"You put all this together, and your dream is to play for a national championship. You've got all new players and a new system, and everything's new. I'm kind of amazed that we were able to get this far this fast, but it's great and certainly something we don't want to take for granted."</span></p> <p>Barry will be making its fourth trip to the NCAA Tournament in school history -- all within the past 10 years. The Bucs' last appearance was in 2010 when they went 1-1 in the national tournament, advancing to the Round of 32. Barry beat Florida Southern, 64-59, before losing to Rollins, 74-71, that year at Arkansas Tech in Russellville, Ark.</p> <p>Delta State won the Gulf South regular season title. The Statesmen lost in the GSC Tournament semifinals. Barry finished fourth in the Sunshine State Conference before being eliminated in the first round of the SSC Tournament last week.</p> <p>Statesmen senior forward Willie Readus is averaging a double-double at 19.8 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. Freshmen forward Devin Schmidt is averaging 15.2 ppg, 6.0 reb and a team-best 4.2 assists. Sophomore guard Jack Magden is scoring 9.5 ppg and shooting just over 40 percent from long range.</p> <p>"I don't know a lot about Delta State, but I'm sure they're a good team," said Barry senior forward <a href="http://www.barry.edu/athletics/basketball/men/roster/profile.html?type=athlete&amp;id=494" target="_blank"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">Magne Fivelstad</span></strong></a>, who is averaging 11.8 ppg and 7.2 reb. "We're going to have to prepare for the best."</p> <p>Barry is coming off one of its most poor performances of the season in which the Buccaneers shot a season-low 36.5 percent from the field. There's still a bitter taste lingering from their meltdown in the opening round of the SSC Tournament.</p> <p>"I made them think about and reflect on the feeling they had in the locker room afterwards," Estes said. "Our thought of the day was second chances only have meaning if you realize the mistake you made when you had the first chance. Hopefully we've learned and we've grown a little bit."</p> <p>Bucs junior guard <a href="http://www.barry.edu/athletics/basketball/men/roster/profile.html?type=athlete&amp;id=738" target="_blank"><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">Juan Ferrales</span></strong></a>, who leads the team in scoring at 15.7 ppg, is expecting the unexpected.</p> <p>"We don't know what could happen, so we have to prepare for every little thing," Ferrales said. "I've said it before, but we have to take the mature step."</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>GAME NOTES&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>LAST TIME OUT:</strong> Barry lost to Eckerd, 83-73, in the first round of the Sunshine State Conference Tournament ...

Adrian Gonzalez, who finished with 15 points on 7 of 10 field goal shooting in 19 minutes, scored in the paint to push the Bucs up 99-69 with 3:55 remaining.</p> <p>Garrett Naughton&rsquo;s dunk on a feed from Magne Fivelstad gave Barry a 31-point lead. Naughton later threw down an alley-oop dunk on a lob from Toure Hunt to put the finishing touches on a runaway win. Naughton matched his season-high with seven points.</p> <p>Ferrales finished with 33 points, one under his career-high. His three 30-point games this season matches Jason Junker&rsquo;s three 30-point plus games in 2000-01. That same season the Buccaneers had four players score 30 or more points four times as Travon Broadway also hit 30 in 2000-01.

I have to thank everybody else because they helped me get there.&rdquo;</p> <p>Ferrales was 8-for-12 from 3-point range, and finished 11 of 17 from the floor.

Chris Carter had 11 points and seven assists. Corbin Jackson had 15 points, five boards and four blocks.</p> <p>The Buccaneers outrebounded the Panthers, 45-33. Barry finished with a season-high 30 assists, which is tied for second most in school history. The school record is 38 assists set on Dec. 12, 1999 against Puerto Rico-Humacao.</p> <p>&ldquo;This is definitely a big win for us, a big uplifting win,&rdquo; Ferrales said. &ldquo;All of our games are super close, so it was good to stretch this one out, kind of relax a little bit.

Landers sank two free throws with 4:54 mark to tie the game at 68-68, to complete a 9-0 Knights run.</p> <p>The Fighting Knights hit 11 of 22 threes, while the Buccaneers were 6 of 13 from beyond the arc.</p> <p>Aaron Harrison had 23 points, and Landers 17 for Lynn. Hill had 13 points, nine assists and two steals for the Bucs. Barrueta scored 14 points, and Gonzalez had 10 points and two steals.</p> <p>Fivelstad reached 20 points for the third time this season.</p> <p>&ldquo;You got to give credit to the little man Deric Hill,&rdquo; Estes said chuckling. &ldquo;A lot of those points came right off unbelievable assists. Deric keeps on assaulting that assist record here at Barry University.&rdquo;</p> <p>Barry&rsquo;s next test at Florida Tech won&rsquo;t be easy.</p> <p>&ldquo;Florida Tech has three of the best players in the league,&rdquo; Estes said. &ldquo;We were very lucky to win that game at home. It&rsquo;s going to be their senior night, so there will be a lot of emotion. It&rsquo;s going to be interesting to see how we respond. If we can go in there and get a win, it&rsquo;s great momentum going into the tournament.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>BARRY 82, LYNN 78</strong><br /><strong>BARRY (18-7, 8-7 SSC)</strong><br />FIVELSTAD, Magne 7-8 6-6 20; FERRALES, Juan 6-12 4-6 19; BARRUETA, Yunio 5-8<br />2-4 14; HILL, Deric 2-8 8-12 13; GONZALEZ, Adrian 5-7 0-0 10; GARNER, Savad<br />3-6 0-2 6; WILLIAMS, Arie 0-2 0-0 0; SIMOZA, Alvaro 0-1 0-0 0.

"You can't ask for anything more than that."</p> <p>Barry funded Gustavo&rsquo;s wish, announcing that his wish would be granted before the men&rsquo;s basketball game at Health &amp; Sports Center on Homecoming Weekend. The NCAA selected Barry as one of five schools across the country to hold the Make-A-Wish reveal on site.</p> <p>Gustavo was also invited to sit in with the men&rsquo;s basketball team in its pre-game scouting report and during a locker room pep talk before the Buccaneers took the floor. During the wish reveal near center court, Barry head coach Butch Estes presented Gustavo with a Buccaneers jersey, which he later had signed by the players.</p> <p>"It touched my heart," Barry University President Sister Linda Bevilacqua said. "I think it had to touch everyone who was in the gymnasium."</p> <p>Barry received an award as one of the top three NCAA Division II schools in the nation for its fundraising efforts to support Make-A-Wish. Last year, the Buccaneers athletic department was able to raise more than $10,000 to help grant two local kids&rsquo; wishes. This year, the school has increased its goal to $15,000 to help fund three wishes.</p> <p>"Basically, I wasn't really expecting this kind of welcome from you guys," Gustavo's father, Gustavo Sr., said. "We were impressed with the way Barry University put this together. I didn't see it coming. I think it was an amazing job, and we're very, very pleased and appreciative of what you guys have done. I'm very grateful for how you guys put this together, the athletic team, how you made this happen.</p> <p>"Barry University and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, they worked very, very hard. They do an incredible job, and they really do it from the heart. Seeing the faces of these kids, it's extremely gratifying."&nbsp;</p> <p>Barry generated over $5,587 through the weekend&rsquo;s Homecoming games to support this year&rsquo;s Make-A-Wish fundraising efforts. All of the gate and concession proceeds from this weekend&rsquo;s athletic events were donated to Make-A-Wish.</p> <p>"Our student-athletes have been phenomenal in their efforts to raise money to make wishes come true," Bevilacqua said. "Not only are they excelling in the classroom in their studies, but they're also, as members of the Sunshine State Conference, contributing to the goals of NCAA Division II. The energy that they put into raising money each year to make wishes come true with the partnership of the Make-A-Wish Foundation ... we're very proud of them, and what they have achieved."</p> <p>A silent auction, yard sale and other activities were also set up on campus, in addition to on-line donations, which has generated $1,785 so far to support the Make-A-Wish cause. Over the past five years, Barry has been one of the nation&rsquo;s leading NCAA Division II fundraising institutions. Barry has also been the top fundraiser in the Sunshine State Conference.</p> <p>"It's a privilege to be a student-athlete at Barry University," men's soccer player Connor Randel said. "One of the pillars of the Barry University mission statement is community service, and as a student-athlete we're able to commit that through Make-A-Wish Foundation. &nbsp;</p> <p>NCAA Division II has supported Make-A-Wish for more than 10 years, raising funds to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.</p> <p>"It was both special, it was memorable," Bevilacqua said, "and it was very touching to be apart of this celebration." &nbsp;</p> <p>To donate to Make-A-Wish, click <a style="font-size: 12px;" href="http://friends.wish.org/017-000/page/Jaime-Carrig/Barry-University-.htm" target="_blank">HERE</a><span style="font-size: 12px;">.&nbsp;</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>http://www.barry.edu/news/article.html?id=24290Tue, 25 Feb 2014 17:16:00 GMT
