He wanted the refs to see what he and most of the Carrier Dome fans had seen: Dolezaj wasn’t out of bounds. Syracuse shouldn’t have been losing possession. The ref didn’t look up, though. Instead, he formed a “T” with both hands, granting Dolezaj not only a technical foul but his fifth personal.“You suck” chants echoed through the Carrier Dome. Dolezaj’s plead didn’t matter, nor did Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim’s or the fans’ complaints. Three Syracuse forwards fouled out of Saturday’s game against Wake Forest with 5:42 left in the game. “Afterwards he told the coaches that I embarrassed him in front of the crowd and I just cannot do that,” Dolezaj said. Just more than a week after Bourama Sidibe and Dolezaj’s foul ejections led to a Syracuse loss at Clemson, the Orange found themselves in the same position. In a tight game, Syracuse’s foul trouble resulted in lineups SU rarely plays featuring players more used to the bench. Somehow, while playing a freshman forward and guard that had fallen out of Syracuse’s normal seven-man rotation, the Orange held on for a 75-73 win over the Demon Deacons.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“By this stage in the year, we should’ve learned you can’t do that,” Boeheim said. “For us to win this game without those three guys in there…it was amazing to me.”Syracuse’s foul trouble centered around players who spend most of their time near the basket. The main issue for the Orange was many of the fouls committed weren’t near their hoop. Boeheim said he doesn’t mind fouls that are contesting a shot — whether it’s players trying to stop a drive or block a layup, those fouls are generally OK.It’s those fouls away from the basket that got the Orange into trouble. Some of them came on the defensive side of the ball, but just not when Wake Forest was making a clear threat to score. Quincy Guerrier fouled a player bringing the ball up. Sidibe picked up a foul nearly 90 feet from SU’s rim. “It’s stupid, yeah,” Guerrier said. “There are some fouls that I can avoid…I got to think more and be smart about fouling.”Guerrier said he had two or three fouls that were avoidable. One of which came on the offensive end, which Dolezaj noted is the worst place to get a foul. Guerrier drove down the lane on a fast break with Elijah Hughes, Syracuse’s leading scorer running to the freshman forward’s right. Instead of passing around the one Wake Forest defender guarding the two Syracuse players, Guerrier attacked the rim. He said after the game he thought a pass would’ve been picked off by a trailing player. Instead, the drive led to a charge and Guerrier’s fourth personal foul. “Quincy tries to do something that nobody would ever try to do,” Boeheim said. “He’s playing in the summer. It’s a 2-on-1 fast break you make a bounce pass you’re up two more points than what we were up and he doesn’t have a foul. I’m trying to teach him he’s just not getting there.”“That was a stupid play for myself,” Guerrier said. “Next time I’m just going to pass him the ball.”Max Freund | Staff PhotographerThe final foul for Guerrier, which set off Syracuse’s string of foul limit breaches, came underneath the Wake Forest basket. At that point, Guerrier had scored 13 points, one short of a season-high, and grabbed three offensive boards. His aggression on the glass twice led to three-point plays as rebounds turned into made layups through contact.But with less than nine minutes remaining, Guerrier’s aggressiveness cost him. Syracuse’s heaviest player wasn’t in position for the rebound and a Wake Forest player had a clear grasp of the ball. Still, Guerrier reached for the ball as he dove by. Instead of hitting the ball loose, he smacked the player’s face. The very next possession, Sidibe fouled out.“Sometimes, I think I’m doing too much,” Guerrier said. “Because in my mind I got to be aggressive and go to the rebound. And even when I’m not in position to have the rebound, I’m trying to (rebound) too much.”When asked how to fix the fouling problem by “being smarter,” Dolezaj smiled and tapped his head. The junior forward said it’s about looking at the tape and understanding which fouls are smart and which aren’t. Last week, it mattered that Syracuse was careless with fouls. On Saturday, Syracuse did enough to make it hurt less. Next week, who knows? There’s no clear answer to how it stops but there’s a consensus in the Syracuse locker room regarding the fouls. “We just cannot do it, you know,” Dolezaj said, echoing his teammates’ and coaches’ remarks after the game. “Today (Brycen Goodine) and Jesse (Edwards) stepped up big, but in more games like this we just need to stay in the game.” Facebook Twitter Google+

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Farmers of all types face challenges everyday as they work hard to get higher yields and greater profits. Inputs throughout the growing season can help with reaching those goals, but only if those inputs are utilized to their full potential.Heavy rains in Ohio during the spring and early summer may have washed away some key nutrients and with them went top-end yield and profits.“Just traveling up and down the road I’ll see corn that’s definitely been nitrogen deficient sometime in its growth stage early on in the growing season,” said Brett Barton, Sales Manager in Ohio for AgXplore. “I wish that more farmers would protect their nitrogen. For the price of that input and adding a small cost to keep them where they are needed would’ve added a lot of bushels.”A nitrogen stabilizer, like N-Zone from AgXplore, is one solution.“We see two to seven bushels better across the board by using N-Zone and the cost is minimal,” Barton said. “Usually for less than a bushel to a bushel and a half of corn you have your expenses paid for this product, so we are seeing a constant return on investment.”N-Zone is a calcium copolymer product that is designed as a nitrogen management aid. It increases nitrogen availability and uptake, reduces nitrogen loss and manages nitrogen during key growth stages.“Being a calcium copolymer it helps keep moisture in the root zone and it binds the nitrogen to a soil colloid so it doesn’t escape through tile lines after heavy rains like we saw in the spring,” Barton said. “That is where I have seen a lot of benefit with our products. Growers that have used any of our N-Zone products are happy and they can’t believe for how wet as we were their crops look as good as they do.”N-Zone Max is formulated to be mixed with 28% or 32% or can be impregnated with dry urea. ContaiN is an NBPT (N-Butyl thiophosphoric triamide) with some N-Zone Max mixed in for above and below ground control. So it does the same thing that N-Zone does but it also has 3 modes of action for farmers that are top dressing wheat or dribbling some nitrogen on using Y-Drops. The third N-Zone product is GL, which is added to anhydrous ammonia.“Although we have seen more rain than we need, this year has been advantageous for showing what our products are capable of,” Barton said. “N-Zone keeps the nitrogen from volatizing and leaching so the plant can keep going even when it has wet feet. Producers that have used N-Zone this year would swear by it and will never go back to not using one of the nitrogen products that we offer.”

The Government is planning to establish a branch of the Industrial Disputes Tribunal (IDT) in Montego Bay, St. James, next year. This was disclosed by Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Derrick Kellier, during the IDT’s Christmas luncheon, held at Heather’s Garden Restaurant in New Kingston, on December 13. “Come next year, we will be looking more deeply into the matter to try and get a branch of the Industrial Disputes Tribunal established in Montego Bay, so that workers in that area of the island who have disputes will be able to access the IDT there,” he said. He argued that the work of the Tribunal is a significant one in keeping the business of industrial relations going in the country, adding that it has done a lot in helping to maintain industrial peace and harmony. “The IDT is one of those organizations that do not operate within the sphere of publicity, but the work that the IDT does in keeping the lid on industrial disputes in settling them amicably on behalf of workers and employers and ensuring that the country maintains a stable industrial climate, cannot be measured at all,” the Minister said. Mr. Kellier said amendment of the Labour Relations and Industrial Disputes Act (LRIDA), to enable non-unionized individuals to take their dispute to the IDT, has put a strain on their work load, so another office would assist greatly to deal with disputes. The House of Representatives recently passed legislation granting access to the Industrial Disputes Tribunal (IDT) to non-unionized workers, who have disputes with their employers. In the meantime, Mr. Kellier said he will be meeting formally with the Executive members of the IDT. The Industrial Disputes Tribunal has been the final level of the system of dispute resolution in Jamaica.
