Lionel Scaloni “We matured during the game,” said Argentina coach Scaloni. “We made two or three mistakes in the first half, but got a grip in the second half, were more patient and we take a lot of positives for the future.“I was impressed with the attitude, we didn’t give up when we went 2-0 down.”Germany head coach Joachim Loew admitted his side faded after a bright start.“We wanted to be in the game right from the off, but unfortunately we couldn’t hold on for 90 minutes,” said Loew.“We lost a few balls, a bit of courage and got into trouble.”Loew handed out four debuts in Dortmund. Freiburg defender Robin Koch and striker Luca Waldschmidt started, then Leverkusen forward Nadiem Amiri and Schalke midfielder Suat Serdar came on for second-half debuts.Loew was forced into a hastily re-arranged defence as Koch replaced centre-back Niklas Stark, who pulled out before kick-off with a stomach bug.Despite 13 withdrawals due to either illness or injury, Germany impressed early against an Argentina team missing Messi, Sergio Aguero and Angel di Maria.With Messi suspended for comments made at the Copa America, Juventus’ Paulo Dybala partnered Lautaro Martinez up front for Argentina.The friendly was a repeat of the 2014 World Cup final, yet Argentina’s Manchester United defender Marcos Rojo was the only survivor when the Germans won in Rio de Janeiro.Rojo partnered Manchester City veteran Nicolas Otamendi in an Argentina defence which crumbled early on.A week after scoring four goals for Bayern Munich at Tottenham, Gnabry put Germany ahead on 15 minutes.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Lionel Scaloni praised his battling Argentina side, missing Lionel Messi, as they scored second-half goals to earn a 2-2 draw in a friendly against an experimental Germany team on Wednesday.The Germans flew into a 2-0 lead with first-half goals by Serge Gnabry and Kai Havertz in Dortmund before Lucas Alario turned the game when he came on for Argentina with an hour gone.The Leverkusen striker pulled a goal back, then set up Lucas Ocampos for a deserved late equaliser.
Georgetown-Syracuse wasn’t just a basketball rivalry. It used to be the basketball rivalry. Towering coaches Jim Boeheim and John Thompson stalked the sidelines. Legendary players such as Patrick Ewing and Pearl Washington made their mark in Madison Square Garden every March. 1992 Big East Tournament Championship flashback Syracuse vs Georgetown Dave Johnson with the game winner. cc: @vintagesportstv pic.twitter.com/jkEOSuwk5i— Big East Hoops 24/7 (@BigEastTourney) March 19, 2017Aftermath Mourning was named the Big East tournament MVP despite playing on the losing team. The Hoyas lost 78-68 to Florida State in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Syracuse lost 77-71 to UMass — led by fourth-year coach John Calipari — in the second round. The Big East rivals never met again in the championship game. Syracuse beat Georgetown 58-55 in their final Big East tournament meeting in 2013. This game is hard to find on YouTube, and it’s one we’d like to watch. We would love to see it again. The Hoyas and Orange combined to win seven of the 10 Big East tournaments in the 1980s. There was a wrinkle to that rivalry, however, heading into their fifth head-to-head Big East championship match on March 15, 1992. Syracuse had never beat Georgetown in the Big East final. The Hoyas were 4-0 against Syracuse at that point, with victories in 1980, 1984, 1987 and 1989. That set up their final Big East championship in 1992. Buildup Georgetown — led by future NBA star Alonzo Mourning — was the No. 2 seed in the Big East tournament. The Hoyas beat Miami and St. John’s to reach the championship game. Led by Dave Johnson and Lawrence Moten, Syracuse beat Villanova and upset No. 1 seed Seton Hall in the semifinals. The Hoyas and Orange split two regular-season meetings. ‘Go out and try to create’ The teams played a typical-defensive game and were knotted at 54 when Dave Johnson spun into the lane and lofted a jumper over Mourning with 3.8 seconds left. “Coach [Jim Boeheim] said go out and try to create,” Johnson said via the Washington Post. “I wanted it. It was my last Big East game, and there’s a lot of prestige in winning this tournament.” Robert Churchwell’s desperation 3-pointer didn’t fall, and Syracuse had its first head-to-head victory against Georgetown in the Big East championship game.
