Panthers’ Defense Stymies Colonials in Win

MKE moves to 7-1 for the first time since 2016-17

Lior Halevi Scores First Points for MKE

MILWAUKEE, Wis.  – Defense was the story yet again for the Milwaukee women's basketball team as the Panthers forced 21 turnovers and held Robert Morris to just 23.1 percent shooting in a 56-37 victory. MKE held RMU to just 11 points at the half, a program record, and moved to 4-0 in Horizon League play for the first time since 2001-02.
"Even when we are not scoring, we have control over our defense," head coach Kyle Rechlicz said. "We're scrappy and we have people in the paint that can block shots. We just play with all of our hearts every single possession. I'm so proud of this team going into the break to be able to pull out those wins especially during finals week."
The Panthers' defense was non-stop the entire afternoon, forcing 21 turnovers with nine steals for the second consecutive game. Milwaukee (7-1, 4-0 Horizon League) held Robert Morris to just 23.1 percent from the floor and 16.7 percent from long range.
Offensively, it was a fast start for Milwaukee, who connected on its first four shots for a 9-2 run before defense really put the Panthers in control. MKE held Robert Morris (0-4, 0-4 HL) to 4-for-21 shooting in the first half for just 11 points.
Prior to Sunday afternoon, the program record for fewest points in one half by an opponent was 12 by Northern Kentucky on February 9, 2019.
The shots were not exactly falling for Milwaukee either, however, as the lead was just seven at the break. The Panthers finished the second quarter just 2-for-14 and missed on all seven three-point attempts.
Robert Morris came out of the locker room and cut its deficit to two, but Brandi Bisping took charge with 10 points in a 13-0 run to give the Panthers a 37-22 advantage with 1:18 to play in the third.
The Milwaukee defense continued to suffocate in the fourth, holding the Colonials to just 3-for-16 shooting from the floor as the Panthers earned the wire-to-wire victory.
The combination of Megan Walstad and Bisping inside helped the Panthers dominate on the glass and in the paint. Walstad finished with 13 points and nine rebounds while Bisping got to the free throw line, going 10-for-10 to finish with 14 points along with eight rebounds.
"They are incredible. Getting the ball in their hands, we feel safe. They are going to find a way to make a play and help the team," Rechlicz stated. "Because people have to double them, it allows open opportunities for other people. We've got a team that is really active and goes and gets the basketball, but it starts with our back line in Megan and Brandi."
MKE had 12 different players step on the court with 10 scoring at least one point. Lior Halevi (Kibbutz Tirat Zvi, ISRAEL) scored her first points in a Panthers' uniform and added three rebounds. 

Alyssa Moore recorded four steals along with three points, two assists, and a rebound in the win.
As a team, Milwaukee owned a 45-27 advantage on the glass. The Panthers finished 20-for-27 at the free throw line, their third game this year with at least 20 made free throws.

Black Bears hold on for victory at Hartford

      Dor Saar, University of Maine

W. Hartford, Conn. 12/23/2020 -- The University of Maine women's basketball team moved to 5-0 for just the fourth time in school history, and the first time since 1986, after it was able to hold on for a 52-49 victory at Hartford on Wednesday afternoon. The win, Maine's 15th in a row, gives the Black Bears a 2-0 start in America East play.

The Black Bears, who did not take their first lead in this contest until there were 38-seconds to play in the third quarter, were again led by Blanca Millan. Millan posted a game-high 22 points in the win while adding six rebounds and five steals. It was another milestone performance from Millan who surpassed former teammate Sigi Koizar to move into seventh on Maine's all-time scoring list with 1,678 points. Millan also moved past head coach Amy Vachon and into fourth on Maine's all-time steals list with 280 takeaways in her career.

Dor Saar, (Ma'anit, ISRAEL) posted her third double-digit scoring effort of the season with 13 points with a trio of 3-point field goals and three assists. Anne Simon added her second consecutive double-figure performance, tallying all 10 of her points in the second half.

Maine, which had not trailed at a quarter break through its first four contests of the season, struggled to find a rhythm from the floor. The Black Bears trailed 13-9 after one and and found themselves down 27-22 at the break.

The visiting Black Bears seemed to get back on track in the third as they began attacking the rim and were able to outscore Hartford 20-14 in the period.

A 14-9 run to start the third helped Maine force a tie late in the quarter. Trailing 33-25, Maine staged an 11-3 run, with two buckets each from Simon and Millan, before Saar's triple tied things at 36-all with 2:51 left in the third.

Maine fell back behind by three but quickly was able to put together a 4-0 sprint. A free throw each from Alba Orois and Simon cut the lead to one before Millan's jumper, her 20th point of the contest, gave Maine its first lead with 38-seconds left in the third quarter.

The Black Bears built a five point lead, their largest of the contest, in the fourth when triples from Simon and Saar came as part of an 8-4 run.

Hartford would respond with a 4-0 run, trimming the deficit to 50-49 with 53-seconds remaining in regulation.

Following a Maine shot clock violation, Hartford would call a timeout, advancing the ball into its scoring zone with 23-seconds to play. However, great defense from Saar, with an assist on the help-side from Fanny Wadling, forced the Hartford ball handler to travel.

A pair of free throws by Saar built the lead to three. Hartford would have one more attempt at a three to tie it, but the shot would hit the backboard and fall harmlessly as time expired. Maine would escape with the 52-49 road victory.

The Black Bears are back in action when they take their 5-0 record to New Hampshire for a two-game weekend set beginning on Saturday, Jan. 2 at 1 p.m.

Wildcats Edge Drexel

             Lior Garzon, Villanova University

VILLANOVA, PA. – The Villanova Wildcats improved to 6-0 on Sunday afternoon (December 13th) with a 48-46 win over the visiting Drexel Dragons. With the loss, Drexel falls to 2-1 on the season.

Villanova was out of sync early committing six turnovers over the first five minutes and connecting on just 2-of-12 from the field as Drexel raced to a 15-3 lead. Dragon senior guard Hannah Nihill led the early charge scoring nine of her team's 15 points.

Drexel led 21-15 with 1:43 to play in the second quarter, when the Wildcats scored the last six points of the half to send the game to intermission tied at 21-21. Senior forward Brianna Herlihy scored four of the six on a short jumper and two free throws, while freshman Lior Garzon (Ra'anana, ISRAEL) scored on a lay-up.

Villanova was 8-of-29 from the field, including a 2-of-16 effort from three-point range in the game's first 20 minutes, while Drexel was 9-of-33 and 1-of-10 from three.

The third quarter went back and forth with neither team able to open-up more than a five-point lead and Drexel led 39-37 entering play in the fourth stanza.

Neither team was able to score for the first 2:41 of the final quarter, before the Dragons broke the scoreless stretch on a driving lay-up by Nihill and Drexel led 41-37. After failing to score for the first 4:06 of the fourth, Wildcat senior guard Raven James drained a three-ball from the right wing to slice the Drexel advantage to 41-40 with 5:54 to play.

On Drexel's next possession, the Dragons answered with a triple of their own when Keishana Washington connected from long distance to put Drexel up 44-40 at the 5:31 mark. Villanova had three straight scoreless possessions, before sophomore Maddy Siegrist buried a triple and the Drexel lead was down to one at 44-43 with 2:46 remaining.

Villanova took its first lead of the fourth quarter at 46-44 with 1:24 remaining when James hit her second three-point field goal. Following an offensive rebound by Washington, Drexel called timeout with 54 seconds on the clock. The Dragons ran their set play to perfection and tied the game at 46-46 on lay-up by Kate Connolly. Villanova then took a timeout and advanced the ball to the front court.

Out of the timeout, James got the ball on the right wing and drove baseline where she converted a tough driving lay-up to give the Wildcats a 48-46 lead with 26 seconds remaining.

After a timeout Drexel got the ball to Washington who missed a short jumper. Dragon senior guard Kayla Bacon came in and forced a tie up on the rebound and with the possession arrow favoring Drexel the Dragons had one last opportunity with three seconds on the clock.

Washington got off a good look at a potential game-winning three, but the shot hit the back of the rim and Villanova escaped with the two-point victory.

In the win, Herlihy led the way with 13 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. Two other Wildcats reached double figures in points, including Siegrist with 11 points and nine rebounds and Garzon who had 10 points and eight rebounds. James finished with eight points.

Drexel was paced by Washington with 16 points to go with nine rebounds and Nihill who netted 13 points. Connolly added 11 points.

For the game, Villanova was 19-of-57 from the field (33.3%), 7-of-27 from three-point range (25.9%) and 3-of-3 from the foul line, while Drexel shot 29.0 percent from the floor (18-of-62), 22.2 percent from long distance (4-of-18) and 85.7 percent from the charity stripe (6-of-7). The Dragons owned a slim 42-41 advantage on the backboards.                                                                                                                                                       



  Israeli College Athletes Shine in Israeli Men's and Women's Tennis Championships

12/25/20 - Ra'anana, Israel

Israel's US College athletes got to see some serious action as the Israel Men's and Women's National Tennis Championships took place at the end of December.  As one of the few tournaments held in Israel this year because of COVID-19, it gave the athletes learning remotely via Zoom classes a chance to finally experience some competition.  It also gave us an opportunity to meet some of the new crop of Israelis coming to US schools next Fall.  On the women's side, Shelly Bereznyak (starting school at Ohio State in September 2021) reached the finals. On the men's side, Daniel Cukierman of USC reached the men's semis. New recruit from the University of Oklahoma, Jordan Hasson, also reached the men's semis in singles and won the men's doubles.  Also participating on the men's side were Mor Bulis of USC, Orel Ovil of Wichita State, Moty Radionov of Drexel and new recruit for the University of Kentucky, Yasha Zemel.   

All those athletes currently in school are reporting back to campus in January to hopefully start the college tennis Spring season. We wish them luck!

Darüber hinaus gilt es auch die zehnjährige Spekulationsfrist zu beachten. Denn auch gemäß
des Falls, dass nicht gewerblich gehandelt wird,
darf ein erworbenes Objekt nicht sofort wiederverkauft werden - zumindest
nicht steuerfrei. Es gilt: Wenn eine Immobilie innerhalb der zehnjährigen Spekulationsfrist veräußert wird, müssen die daraus erzielten Gewinne entsprechend
versteuert werden. Wer mit Immobilien Geld verdienen will, kann dies auch durch
die Sanierung seiner eigenen Immobilien tun, sofern diese vermietet sind.
Denn, wer als Eigentümer an seiner Immobilie Modernisierungsmaßnahmen durchführt, die zu einer Ersparnis von Energie und Wasser
führen oder aber den Wohnwert nachhaltig steigern, darf die Miete entsprechend erhöhen. Dank der
sog. Modernisierungsumlage können aktuell rund 11%
der durch die Modernisierung verursachten Kosten auf die Jahresmiete umgelegt und somit an den Mieter weitergegeben werden. Auch durch die Modernisierung von Immobilien, die unter Denkmalschutz stehen, kann Geld verdient werden, indem beispielsweise
Steuervorteile geltend gemacht werden können. Des Weiteren gibt es die Möglichkeit Immobilen zu
erwerben, die sanierungsbedürftig sind, diese zu dann sanieren und anschießend gewinnbringend zu veräußern. Allerdings müssen auch hierbei steuerliche Aspekte wie die Spekulationsfrist berücksichtigt werden. Wer kein ausreichendes Eigenkapital hat oder nicht direkt in Immobilien investieren möchte, kann natürlich auch
durch Immobilienaktien oder entsprechende Immobilienfonds Geld verdienen. Eine weitere Möglichkeit bieten Crowdinvesting-Plattformen, die sich auf Immobilien spezialisiert haben. Auf diesen Plattformen hat man als Privatperson die Chance, Projekte von Bauträgern vorzufinanzieren. Die
verschiedenen Plattformen werben dabei mit Renditen von bis zu 7% und mehr.
Allerdings muss dort das vermeintlich hohe Ausfallrisiko entsprechend berücksichtigt werden. Allgemein gilt: Ganz egal,
für welche Strategie man sich entscheidet,
grundsätzlich ist es möglich mit Immobilien Geld zu verdienen. Allerdings sind ein nachhaltiger Finanzierungsplan und das Investment
in die richtigen Objekte eine grundlegende Voraussetzung dafür.

Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform
like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm
completely confused .. Any ideas? Cheers!

First off I want to say superb blog! I had a
quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was curious to find
out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!

Betting, like all forms of entertainment and actions, could be very risky.

The pleasure and excitement can create serious consequences and legal issues if a person isn't attentive. Roulette, the card game many men and women understand and love, is no exclusion. The top online casinos offer the best internet gambling experience so players are able to fully enjoy the ultimate gambling experience whilst playing their preferred variant of roulette.
All approved online casinos have strong compliance procedures set up to guard both players and the ethics of this game.

An online roulette dining table offers players the chance to place stakes. At any particular time, a roulette player may choose to fold or bet on a particular number, pick, or combination of numbers to the roulette table. A person's success in placing bets and the amount they win be determined by various factors.
These factors consist of the first installation of the roulette table, so the number of winning bets (whether single or multiple), the payout structure and also the consistency of those wins. The Roulette wheel would be that the apparatus used to randomize the results of each spin of the wheel.

Roulette and Blackjack are very popular casino games as they can be played for cash as well.
Both have gained popularity since their beginning, so there are lots of sites offering these games to get both free and sale. A Blackjack hand total is the quantity of times that the blackjack player has won. There are three potential outcomes if a blackjack player stakes: they winthey lose, or they get nothing.
Because players may win, blackjack is considered a sort of betting.

To play blackjack you must learn to draw cards, both sides of this table. A standard strategy for blackjack involves counting card combinations, or the chances of getting specific cards. Many casinos require players to understand about the fundamentals of how to count cards, for example, rule which theces and eights total up to seven. This basic strategy can cut the casino's edge and improve the Blackjack chances.

Highcard Counting or HCC is still a common way for most blackjack matches, and it's also a portion of a basic plan for all sorts of betting. If you're at an online casino and want to check this out strategy, simply enter your highest hand into the port and add seven to the surface of your hand count.
This will give you the highest card counting hand that you could get (after the bonus round). The bonus rounds usually give the casino extra money so that it pays to bet the most you may. In the event that you may win after the incentive is applied, this could really improve your chances at the long run.

Double Blackjack is just another excellent strategy for blackjack that lots of players usually do not understand. This plan requires you to deal with your hand (following the bonus rounds have been implemented ) and bet on the 2nd card dealtwith. Players that are good at blackjack understand that a second card is more inclined to be dealt poor than the original.

If you are dealt a poor card, then you've got the choice of gambling the difference between the two highest cards on the card, however it is generally much better to bet the same on the first card. Afterall, players are often dealt with a second card in a terrible cost.
