AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Marathon sets up perfectly before the 2020 Olympic Marathon Trials in Atlanta at the end of February.

Local elite runner, Rory Tunningley, will be running the Austin Half Marathon Sunday “to blow out his legs one last time” and seize some advance scouting for the terrain ahead in Atlanta.

Tunningley is a former University of Texas runner making his second appearance at the United State Olympic Marathon Trials Feb. 29 in Atlanta, Georgia. He also competed at the trials in 2016.

Last time, in 2016, Tunningley said he was just happy to be there while this year he has grander aspirations.

Tunningley isn’t the only runner using Austin as a tune-up for the Olympic trials nor is he the only athlete that compared the hills of the Austin course to what the country’s best runners will face near downtown Atlanta.

Austin’s downtown course provides several elevation changes — similar to what downtown Atlanta’s landscape will provide.

Austinite David Fuentes is fresh off his first victory at Austin’s 3M Half Marathon. Fuentes has also qualified for the Olympic Trials and will be helping race officials on Sunday..

Fuentes is a master of his craft winning several Austin Half Marathons over his running career, but he’s staying realistic on his chances at the Olympic trials.

“Of course, I want to go out and compete and crush the competition, but it’s a little out of the realm,” Fuentes said on his outlook going into Atlanta’s trials.

To be fair, the odds of representing the United States are minute, even for this quality of athlete.

There will be over 500 women and over 200 men competing for the top three spots on the Olympic Marathon teams. Only the top three finishers for men and women will qualify for the 2020 Olympics.

Tunningley know he’s in the upper-echelon of runners, but it is even harder to break through into the truly highest class of marathoners. Although, he does believe he’s capable of reaching that level this year.

“Every time I race I try to think this could my day…the day where I run out of my mind,” Tunningley said.

The Austin Half Marathon will get Austin’s elite runners ready for their course to Atlanta — and potentially the Olympics.

Utah vs Orego

Utah vs Orego : Free online [NCAAM] college basketball season 2020 Tv Channel to this point, the month of March is fast approaching and with that comes an abundance of projections for what is shaping up to be a chaotic free-for-all NCAA Tournament.

As mentioned last weekend, the Men’s Basketball Committee revealed its Top 16 seeds during their bracket preview show on CBS which aims to open the door into the criteria and selection process for seeding teams ahead of Selection Sunday on March 15.

Following the course of the season, the projected 1 seeds (Baylor, Kansas, Gonzaga and San Diego State) came as no surprise with each team holding a firm grip at the top with their respective profiles. The fifth team and overall top 2 seed revealed were the Duke Blue Devils, seemingly in prime position to leap up to the 1 line if the aforementioned four were to falter.

From a Bracketology standpoint, my latest bracket projections at One Man Committee have been updated (as of Thursday, Feb. 13) to reflect Duke’s current standing. No movement up-or-down has been made in line with the selection committee’s bracket preview as the Blue Devils remain the No. 2 seed slotted in the East region. There is also the aspect of the teams that will be placed in the East region as well, which is where you will find No.1 seed San Diego State. Along with the Aztecs, they will be joined by the likes of No. 3 seed Seton Hall (another team with NYC aspirations) and No. 4 seed Kentucky. The situation will remain fluid as we are still in the midst of the regular season with conference tournament play still to come, but the bracket projections will be a representation of how I would predict what the selection committee will come to in their final selections on March 15.

A brief deep-dive into Duke’s resume will further detail its current placement in the selection process and what opportunities present themselves that may adjust its seeding prior to Selection Sunday.

Duke’s overall profile is relatively strong showcasing among the nation’s best in results-based metrics (KPI – #3, SOR – #7) and prediction-based metrics (BPI – #1, Pomeroy – #3, Sagarin – #3). The Blue Devils are currently No. 6 in the NET rankings and hold a 4-1 against Quadrant 1 teams–with two of those victories being a neutral court win over Kansas and a pivotal road win over Michigan State–and have a combined nine victories between the top two quadrants. Outside of conference play, the Blue Devils are also 10-1 (1-o road) against the No. 7 non-conference strength of schedule. They have also amassed a stellar 7-1 road record against the No. 12 strength of schedule, which is the proverbial beating heart of their resume and one of the key takeaways as to why they were their No. 5 overall seed.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are a couple of blemishes with Duke’s profile which has been discussed as a whole into what plays into the separation between the four 1 seeds and then the next group of 2 seeds. For the Blue Devils, they were the lone school within the Top 16 with a Quadrant 3 defeat (vs. Stephen F. Austin, 83-85). While on paper it may seem damaging, in reality though the Lumberjacks are a really good basketball team with a 22-3 overall record, the clear favorite in the Southland Conference and are a projected NCAA Tournament team by way of an automatic bid. Additionally, the Blue Devils only road defeat of the season came at the hands to Clemson back on Jan. 14. Notable for that game, however, was the absence of freshman forward Wendell Moore and sophomore forward Joey Baker. During the course of the evaluating process, the selection committee has and will take injuries into account and can view that loss in lesser value as Duke did not have its full complement of players available.

Looking ahead, of Duke’s remaining seven games it will have two more Quadrant 1 opportunities, both coming away from Cameron Indoor Stadium with road visits to Virginia (#55 NET) and NC State (#56 NET) later this month. Of the other five, three of those games will be played against Quadrant 2 opponents with the other two coming against Quadrant 3 foes. For the Blue Devils, they must remain clear of any upsets going forward as they will be projected to win out in each game to close out the regular season.

The light at the end of the tunnel in projecting Duke in this year’s tournament is its regional placement. As it stands, first and second round games in Greensboro are becoming a near lock. The shorter distance of travel, the better in the opening weekend of the tournament. From there, the target will be the East region played in famed Madison Square Garden in New York City for the Sweet 16/Elite Eight. With a mass of alumni in and around New York, it has been viewed as a home away from home for Duke over a number of years. The Blue Devils are 38-18 all time in Madison Square Garden, while also holding a 72-27 all-time record when playing in the greater NYC area.

The 2020 NCAA Tournament will conclude from this year’s Final Four host site in Atlanta (GA) from Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Apr. 3-6.
Kansas may trail Baylor in the Big 12 Conference race. But the Jayhawks’ NCAA tournament résumé keeps getting prettier to the point where one loss for the Bears would position them for the top overall No. 1 seed.

Kansas (21-3, 10-1) won their ninth in a row and added yet another Quadrant 1 win to their tourney portfolio by defeating West Virginia on the road in Morgantown. WVU (18-6) is a projected No. 3 seed and the win gives Kansas a nation-leading 11 Quad 1 victories.

Kansas, in addition to two defeats of the Mountaineers, has victories against Dayton, Colorado and Texas Tech. Its only three losses — Duke, Villanova, Baylor — all came against top-30 opponents.

Kansas guard Ochai Agbaji shoots a three pointer over West Virginia guard Jordan McCabe during the first half at WVU Coliseum.
A Feb. 22 rematch against Baylor will give coach Bill Self’s team an opportunity to show the committee its merit to be the top team on the bracket come Selection Sunday in a month.

► No. 1 seeds: Baylor, Kansas, Gonzaga, San Diego State.

► Last four in: Wichita State, Florida, Stanford, Cincinnati.

► First Four out: Georgetown, North Carolina State, Memphis, Richmond.

For the Blue Devils, they were the lone school within the Top 16 with a Quadrant 3 defeat (vs. Stephen F. Austin, 83-85). While on paper it may seem damaging, in reality though the Lumberjacks are a really good basketball team with a 22-3 overall record, the clear favorite in the Southland Conference and are a projected NCAA Tournament team by way of an automatic bid. Additionally, the Blue Devils only road defeat of the season came at the hands to Clemson back on Jan. 14. Notable for that game, however, was the absence of freshman forward Wendell Moore and sophomore forward Joey Baker. During the course of the evaluating process, the selection committee has and will take injuries into account and can view that loss in lesser value as Duke did not have its full complement of players available.

Looking ahead, of Duke’s remaining seven games it will have two more Quadrant 1 opportunities, both coming away from Cameron Indoor Stadium with road visits to Virginia (#55 NET) and NC State (#56 NET) later this month. Of the other five, three of those games will be played against Quadrant 2 opponents with the other two coming against Quadrant 3 foes. For the Blue Devils, they must remain clear of any upsets going forward as they will be projected to win out in each game to close out the regular season.

The light at the end of the tunnel in projecting Duke in this year’s tournament is its regional placement. As it stands, first and second round games in Greensboro are becoming a near lock. The shorter distance of travel, the better in the opening weekend of the tournament. From there, the target will be the East region played in famed Madison Square Garden in New York City for the Sweet 16/Elite Eight. With a mass of alumni in and around New York, it has been viewed as a home away from home for Duke over a number of years. The Blue Devils are 38-18 all time in Madison Square Garden, while also holding a 72-27 all-time record when playing in the greater NYC area.

The 2020 NCAA Tournament will conclude from this year’s Final Four host site in Atlanta (GA) from Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Apr. 3-6.
Kansas may trail Baylor in the Big 12 Conference race. But the Jayhawks’ NCAA tournament résumé keeps getting prettier to the point where one loss for the Bears would position them for the top overall No. 1 seed.

Kansas (21-3, 10-1) won their ninth in a row and added yet another Quadrant 1 win to their tourney portfolio by defeating West Virginia on the road in Morgantown. WVU (18-6) is a projected No. 3 seed and the win gives Kansas a nation-leading 11 Quad 1 victories.

Kansas, in addition to two defeats of the Mountaineers, has victories against Dayton, Colorado and Texas Tech. Its only three losses — Duke, Villanova, Baylor — all came against top-30 opponents.

► First Four out: Georgetown, North Carolina State, Memphis, Richmond.

Villanova vs Temple

Villanova vs Temple : Free online [NCAAM] college basketball season 2020 Tv Channel to this point, the month of March is fast approaching and with that comes an abundance of projections for what is shaping up to be a chaotic free-for-all NCAA Tournament.

As mentioned last weekend, the Men’s Basketball Committee revealed its Top 16 seeds during their bracket preview show on CBS which aims to open the door into the criteria and selection process for seeding teams ahead of Selection Sunday on March 15.

Following the course of the season, the projected 1 seeds (Baylor, Kansas, Gonzaga and San Diego State) came as no surprise with each team holding a firm grip at the top with their respective profiles. The fifth team and overall top 2 seed revealed were the Duke Blue Devils, seemingly in prime position to leap up to the 1 line if the aforementioned four were to falter.

From a Bracketology standpoint, my latest bracket projections at One Man Committee have been updated (as of Thursday, Feb. 13) to reflect Duke’s current standing. No movement up-or-down has been made in line with the selection committee’s bracket preview as the Blue Devils remain the No. 2 seed slotted in the East region. There is also the aspect of the teams that will be placed in the East region as well, which is where you will find No.1 seed San Diego State. Along with the Aztecs, they will be joined by the likes of No. 3 seed Seton Hall (another team with NYC aspirations) and No. 4 seed Kentucky. The situation will remain fluid as we are still in the midst of the regular season with conference tournament play still to come, but the bracket projections will be a representation of how I would predict what the selection committee will come to in their final selections on March 15.

A brief deep-dive into Duke’s resume will further detail its current placement in the selection process and what opportunities present themselves that may adjust its seeding prior to Selection Sunday.

Duke’s overall profile is relatively strong showcasing among the nation’s best in results-based metrics (KPI – #3, SOR – #7) and prediction-based metrics (BPI – #1, Pomeroy – #3, Sagarin – #3). The Blue Devils are currently No. 6 in the NET rankings and hold a 4-1 against Quadrant 1 teams–with two of those victories being a neutral court win over Kansas and a pivotal road win over Michigan State–and have a combined nine victories between the top two quadrants. Outside of conference play, the Blue Devils are also 10-1 (1-o road) against the No. 7 non-conference strength of schedule. They have also amassed a stellar 7-1 road record against the No. 12 strength of schedule, which is the proverbial beating heart of their resume and one of the key takeaways as to why they were their No. 5 overall seed.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are a couple of blemishes with Duke’s profile which has been discussed as a whole into what plays into the separation between the four 1 seeds and then the next group of 2 seeds. For the Blue Devils, they were the lone school within the Top 16 with a Quadrant 3 defeat (vs. Stephen F. Austin, 83-85). While on paper it may seem damaging, in reality though the Lumberjacks are a really good basketball team with a 22-3 overall record, the clear favorite in the Southland Conference and are a projected NCAA Tournament team by way of an automatic bid. Additionally, the Blue Devils only road defeat of the season came at the hands to Clemson back on Jan. 14. Notable for that game, however, was the absence of freshman forward Wendell Moore and sophomore forward Joey Baker. During the course of the evaluating process, the selection committee has and will take injuries into account and can view that loss in lesser value as Duke did not have its full complement of players available.

Looking ahead, of Duke’s remaining seven games it will have two more Quadrant 1 opportunities, both coming away from Cameron Indoor Stadium with road visits to Virginia (#55 NET) and NC State (#56 NET) later this month.

Eighth seed Casper Ruud and qualifier Pedro Sousa have had contrasting but equally impressive runs to this point and it will be an intense affair in the finals, with both players coming into the match with very high stakes.

Already projected to reach a career-best ranking on Monday, the 21-year-old Ruud will be eager to win on Sunday and break it into the top-32 of the world just in time for Masters 1000 tournaments in March. That said, it will be Sousa, who will be playing in the biggest match of his career.

Pedro Sousa is projected to reach a career-high ranking of he was to win on Sunday.
Pedro Sousa is projected to reach a career-high ranking of he was to win on Sunday.
The Portuguese qualifier is also projected to reach a career-high ranking of 95, come a win on Sunday. But a title after spending around a decade and half of the tour will be an even bigger prize for Sousa.

Sousa has played the better part of his career on the Challenger circuit and it was only in 2019 that he made his top-100 debut. And now he stands the chance of becoming just the second man from Portugal to win a youth-level title. Understandably emotional, he said,

I […] took my chance and am enjoying every time I’m playing in this tournament. Hopefully I can do a good job tomorrow.
And that’s just one side of it. The 31-year-old seasoned campaigner has played some solid tennis all week right through qualifiers and into the main draw.

Even though Ruud will be the clear favourite to win the match and the title on Sunday, Sousa has a lot of things working in his favour as well.

The unheralded challenger will be difficult to play owing to the surprise element of his game. Ruud has never played him before, but for one who has followed Sousa’s game, they’d know that the man from Lisbon has a few tricks up his sleeve.

For someone who has played most of his tennis on clay, Sousa has a surprisingly good touch and slice. And while his backhand is definitely the stronger wing, he can hit efficient, if not explosive groundstrokes off the forehand as well. Movement around the court is where Sousa, much like many other clay-court specialists, shines.

In essence, Sousa has the game to win, and win big. February has thrown up its fair share of surprise surges for the likes of Sousa, who have been around the tour for long without ever really getting their due. Pune had Roberto Marcora and Egor Gerasimov, Montpellier had Grégoire Barrère, but all of them came up just short. It is about time that one of them goes all the way through.
The 23rd edition of the Argentina Open begins in Buenos Aires from February 10 and will feature some big names of the tennis world. A part of the ATP 250 series, the Argentina Open is the second of the Latin American Golden Swing events that follows the Cordoba Open.

Australian Open 2020 runner-up Dominic Thiem was expected to be part of the tournament but withdrew, as a result of which world No. 14 Diego Schwartzman will be the top seed on clay at the Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club.

The Argentinian who went down to Novak Djokovic in the fourth round of the Australian Open 2020 will be joined in Buenos Aires by countryman Guido Pella who is seeded second while Serbia’s Dusan Lajovic begins the tournament as the third seed.

The tournament boasts of some big titleholders from the past like Rafael Nadal who triumphed in 2015 and Dominic Thiem who emerged victorious in 2016 and 2018.

Thiem lost to Diego Schwartzman in the semi-finals, in 2019, and Marco Cecchinato of Italy went on to win the title. Schwartzman lost to Cecchinato in two sets last year, but the Argentine top seed would like nothing better than to go all the way this time around.
