Men’s basketball: Career days from Bronson Koenig, Vitto Brown aid in domination of Siena

first_imgLess than 48 hours removed from one of the worst losses in program history, the Wisconsin men’s basketball rebounded with a 92-65 victory over Siena.Although the defense started slow once again, Wisconsin built a healthy first half lead and then put the game away for good by making six of its first seven shots from the field to build a lead that reached a margin as large as 33 points.Junior guard Bronson Koenig, who poured in a career-high 23 points, scored six quick points after halftime to help the cause and secure No. 17 Wisconsin’s first win of the 2015-16 season. Junior forward Vitto Brown also had a career-high in points, with 16.“I did a better job of slowing the game down and letting it come to me,” Brown said.In defeat was a Siena team from the MAAC who, unlike Western Illinois two nights ago, was overpowered. The Badgers shot lights out from the field throughout the game, especially in the second half when they made 68 percent of their shots to finish the game shooting 58.5 percent.For the second straight game, UW started 4-of-6 from the field. Unlike Friday night, though, UW held on to the hot hand. More impressively, they did it without starters Nigel Hayes and Ethan Happ who spent some quality time on the bench because both picked up two early fouls.Despite limited playing time, Hayes managed to score 14 points and Happ finished with eight.The Badgers were committed to going inside early on, with five of their first six field goals coming from a short distance.“[We did a] much better job tonight to start the [game] and to start the half,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said.With all of the action inside, the Badgers frequented the free throw line, where they were much more effective than against Western Illinois. Wisconsin shot 25-for-30 from the charity stripe Sunday night.A straight-on three-pointer from Ryan Oliver gave Siena its first lead of the ballgame at 14-13 with 12:46 to go in the half. Siena made seven of its first 11 shots, but then went cold, only converting four of their final 17 attempts in the half.Koenig said UW emphasized defense during Saturday’s practice after the dismal performance on the defensive end of the floor during Friday’s loss.“You really couldn’t get much worse than Friday,” Koenig said.Leading the way for the Saints were Nico Clareth (21 points) and Marquis Wright (17 points).Vitto Brown had a career-high 16 points Sunday night. Jason Chan/The Badger HeraldWhile the rest of the Badgers were working inside, Brown got his mid-range game going, sinking jumpers to keep UW close. He hit one from the right wing to put Wisconsin up 17-16 nine minutes and 21 seconds into the game, a lead his team wouldn’t relinquish. Ten of his points came in the first half.“He seemed a little more focused,” Ryan said. “He was a little more under control and that’s what he’s going to have to do.”After taking 21 three’s in the opener, Wisconsin didn’t attempt a shot from behind the arc until 9:15 remained in the first half, when Koenig knocked one down from the left side to increase the lead to 23-18 and got the Badgers rolling. The Saints were an inefficient 1-for-8 from three and the deep shot selections stalled the offense.In the middle of the first half, Siena switched to a 2-3 zone to offset Wisconsin’s inside attack, but UW utilized patience and cerebral passing to adjust. It pulled ahead and carried a 43-28 lead into halftime behind shooting 50 percent from the field and 13 points from Koenig.The half came to an exciting end when Koenig failed to hit a last-second three and Zak Showalter flew through the air, met the ball at the rim and flushed it down as time expired to give Wisconsin its biggest lead of the half.The large lead allowed freshmen Alex Illikainen (six points) and Brevin Pritzl (four minutes) to make their debuts as Badgers.last_img read more

first_imgLufthansa expands A380 fleet in MunichTwo additional Airbus A380 aircraft to be stationed in Munich as of Summer 2020From Munich, Lufthansa will operate to Boston with the A380 for the first time and San Francisco will offered year round with the double decker  Starting in Summer 2020, Lufthansa will be taking off from Munich with two additional Airbus A380 aircraft. This will increase the Munich A380 fleet to a total of seven aircraft, with the remaining seven stationed in Frankfurt. Soon, Lufthansa passengers can experience the world’s largest commercial aircraft on five routes from Munich, including the addition of two new destinations served by the double decker. For the first time, Lufthansa will be operating the A380 to Boston and serving San Francisco with an A380 year-round. In addition to these routes, Los Angeles, Beijing and Shanghai are also on Munich’s A380 flight schedule for summer 2020. “Since last March, the A380 has been operating very successfully from Munich. A few weeks ago, we welcomed the millionth A380 passenger on board in Munich. Our customers and our crews love the A380 experience. The flagship of our fleet is perfect for our 5-Star hub Munich. We will continue growing where quality and costs go hand in hand,” says Harry Hohmeister, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.Currently, Lufthansa operates the Airbus A380 from Munich to Los Angeles, Beijing and Hong Kong. In the upcoming 2019/2020 Winter Schedule, the giant Airbus will operate to San Francisco, Miami and Hong Kong (until December 2019) as well as Shanghai (as of January 2020).The Airbus A380 has been the flagship of Lufthansa since 2010, with a fleet of 14 aircraft.  As of summer 2020, seven will be stationed in Munich and seven in Frankfurt. The Airbus A380 is the world’s largest commercial aircraft – 24 meters high and almost 73 meters long. Thanks to a high proportion of composite materials, the A380 is 15 tons lighter and has a 50 percent lower noise level than comparable long-haul aircraft. Moreover, the A380 flies in and out of airports, at the same speed of anA320. All of these characteristics contribute to the reduction of aircraft noise in airport surrounding areas.The A380 has 33 percent lower fuel consumption and correspondingly lower CO2 emissions than aircraft of the previous generation.Source = Lufthansa Grouplast_img read more
