2021 Top 50 Players in College Lacrosse: Nos. 10-1 — Michael Sowers Still King
(Photo By Natalie Ledonne/Duke Athletics)
Ahead of the past two seasons, we’ve put out the Top 50 players in college lacrosse — considering both men’s and women’s players and their overall impact to their team and the sport.
If you at all followed college lacrosse the past year, the No. 1 selection is a bit anticlimactic. He had a new color jersey, a new number, but Michael Sowers is still No. 1. The now-Duke attackman was the clear top dog to end 2020, and reports out of Durham (and a loaded cast of characters around him) show no signs of slowing down into his graduate year.
The Top 50 list is a unique and difficult exercise comparing players across disciplines of the sport that, at times, can be wildly different. But, it presents all the college lacrosse athletes on the same stage.
Like everything in this offseason, it’s increasingly peculiar. You’ll see some players off the list because their status is in question (Maryland’s Jared Bernhardt is a notable one), and you’ll see a lot of new team names listed next to players because of the number of high-profile transfers.
10. Emma Trenchard, D, North Carolina
IL’s top-ranked defender, Trenchard has been a mainstay in the Team USA defensive corps for two years and is widely regarded the top 1v1 matchup in the women’s ranks. Trenchard’s ability to neutralize her opposition’s top scoring threat is unparalleled — and she’s regularly going toe-to-toe with All-Americans each week. As just a sophomore, Trenchard was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. The two-time All-American has picked up a career 56 groundballs, 45 draws and caused 32 turnovers.
9. Izzy Scane, A, Northwestern
One of the most powerful attackers in the game, Scane goes hard — really, really hard — and she’s nearly impossible to stop when she gets going. In her final game of the 2020 season, the sophomore exploded for a career-high eight goals vs. then-No. 1 North Carolina. During her rookie season, she broke onto the scene with 80 points, 26 groundballs and 59 draws, before helping Team USA capture U-19 gold the following summer. With three remaining years of NCAA eligibility, she’s the youngest player ranking in our top 10.
8. Jeff Teat, A, Cornell
It’s hard to think that, on this list ahead of the 2020 season, Teat was ranked No. 28. That was far too low. Teat’s a magician on the field. His 12-goal, 15-assist shortened season was punctuated by freakish games against Ohio State and Penn State. He has unfinished business, and he’s the rare Ivy League senior returning to his school to get it done. He was No. 1 in the NLL Draft, as well, a heralded box talent who’s been hyped for years.
7. Katie Hoeg, A, North Carolina
A smooth operator, Hoeg makes it look too easy at times. Her vision is unparalleled, as the Long Island native is already UNC’s leader in career assists (162) and assists in a single season (73 in 2019). In addition to distributing abilities, she’s also a prolific scorer—having racked up 99 goals throughout her career in Chapel Hill, as well. In 2020, Hoeg shared ILWomen’s National Player of the Year honors with teammate, Jamie Ortega.
6. Jamie Ortega, A, North Carolina
A sharp-shooting lefty, Ortega’s just flat-out lethal off-ball, and her quick first step enables her to be just as dangerous 1v1. Through her seven-game stretch in 2020, Ortega netted 32 goals on just 42 shots (76.2%) and currently claims 243 (183G, 60A) career points. Ortega, alongside Hoeg, are hands-down the nation’s top 1-2 punch offensively. The Long Island duo plays to each other’s strengths like few teammates that have come before them have.
5. Chris Gray, A, North Carolina
He put up 100-plus points at BU as the primary carrier. All eyes were on him after he transferred to North Carolina, where he dazzled with his ability to fit in, complement and enhance the Tar Heel offense en route to an undefeated start. His 27 goals, 21 assists showcased a balanced, team player who elevates everone around him.
4. TD Ierlan, FO, Yale
What more can be said about TD? No player changes a team like TD. His 1,159 face-off wins is an NCAA record, as is his 75.3% career winning percentage and 810 groundballs. He was picked No. 1 in the MLL Draft, but he’s back with the Bulldogs — another rare Ivy returner, allowed due to the number of semesters he’s been enrolled at Yale.
3. Ally Kennedy, M, Stony Brook
The nation’s top midfielder heading into the 2021 season, Kennedy has been a mainstay in the U.S. national team program in recent years. A two-time All-American, Kennedy dominates the box score in nearly every facet of the game. She’s totaled 248 points (193G, 55A), 133 groundballs, 43 caused turnovers and 242 draws in her career. Accustom to drawing the opposition’s top offensive threat from the midfield, her game is as solid offensively as it is defensively, and almost unrivaled nationally in between the 30s.
2. Emily Hawryschuk, A, Syracuse
Coach Gait’s most recent great out of ‘Attacker U,’ Hawryschuk seemed almost a shoo-in for a Tewaaraton finalist nod in 2021 after helping Syracuse to one of its strongest starts in recent years. A two-time first-team All-American, Hawryschuk was ILWomen’s “Clutch Player of the Year” in 2020 — key performances out of the team captain helped Syracuse to key wins over Maryland (5G, 1A, 1GB, 2CT) and Northwestern (6G, 3DC, 4GB, 2CT) early. Alongside Kennedy and Trenchard, Hawryschuk has been a multi-year member of the U.S. women’s national team.
1. Michael Sowers, A, Duke
He’d have a Tewaaraton sitting on his desk in the office if the 2020 season would have played out. He also would have had the rare May lacrosse appearance, as Princeton was tearing up its 5-0 start. He has video-game numbers (16, 31 in 5GP in 2020), and he’ll be on one of the sport’s biggest stages at Duke. It’s a loaded Duke team, and though there’s always changes with chemistry and roles at a new squad, Sowers has the skillset to be a chameleon, and the cast of characters around him is so good that when they’re elevated by Sowers’ play — it’s deadly.
ACC Announces 2021 Men’s Lacrosse All-ACC Team and Award Winners
GREENSBORO, N. C. (theACC.com) – North Carolina senior attackman Chris Gray was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Player of the Year and heads up the 2021 All-ACC Men’s Lacrosse Team, which was released Wednesday by the conference office.
The 2021 All-ACC Team and award winners were determined by a vote of the league’s head coaches.
Notre Dame graduate defenseman Jack Kielty was voted ACC Defensive Player of the Year, while Duke attackman Brennan O’Neill was tabbed ACC Freshman of the Year. North Carolina head coach Joe Breschi was voted ACC Coach of the Year for the third time in his career (2010, 2013).
ACC co-champions Duke and North Carolina led all schools with five All-ACC honorees apiece. Virginia placed four on the team, while Notre Dame had three honorees and Syracuse two.
The All-ACC team featured three repeat honorees, including Syracuse redshirt junior long-stick midfielder Brett Kennedy, who earned All-ACC honors for the third straight season. Virginia senior attackman Matt Moore and Duke graduate defender JT Giles-Harris claimed All-ACC honors for the second straight season.
Gray is the only player to rank among the top 10 nationally in goals per game, assists per game and points per game this season. He leads the ACC in goals (42), goals per game (3.23), points (77) and points per game (5.92). A junior attackman from Wading River, New York, Gray also averages 2.69 assists per game, which is second in the ACC. Among all Division I players this season, the Tewaaraton nominee ranks second in points per game, seventh in goals per game and eighth in assists per game. Gray owns three game-winning goals this season, second most among ACC players.
Kielty has led a strong Notre Dame defense that holds opponents to an ACC-low 8.5 goals per game, which is third fewest nationally. The graduate close defenseman from Morristown, New Jersey, has locked down some of the nation’s top attacking players all season and is a nominee for the 2021 Tewaaraton Award. The Fighting Irish have held four of their opponents to season lows in scoring in 2021: Robert Morris (7), Marquette (3), Duke (8) and Syracuse (8).
An attackman from Bay Shore, New York, O’Neill leads ACC freshmen in goals (38) and goals per game (2.71). He ranks second among all ACC players in goals, third in goals per game and 10th in points per game (3.29).
Breschi guided the Tar Heels to a share of the ACC championship with Duke, marking UNC’s first ACC title since 2017. Now in his 13th season at his alma mater, Breschi has led UNC to an 11-2 record and the top seed in the NCAA Tournament this season. It marks the Tar Heels’ first No. 1 overall seed in the tournament since 1993. UNC leads the nation in scoring this season with 17.1 goals per game.
All five ACC programs have earned bids to the 2021 NCAA Tournament, which begins Saturday. North Carolina (1), Duke (2), Virginia (4) and Notre Dame (6) each earned seeds, while Syracuse also claimed an at-large bid. At least one current ACC member team has advanced to the national semifinals in 39 of the last 40 years, and the current five ACC teams have combined for 24 national championships.

25 CIAC boys lacrosse players to watch in 2021
This felt like a harder cut than usual, maybe because we’re coming off a lost year with a lot of new faces in lineups. (Or it could just be that we don’t really remember what doing this was like in the past; it has been a while.) Either way, this state has a bunch of lacrosse talent, some of it coming from emerging areas, and let’s hope everyone stays healthy and we get to see it showcased.
Aidan Best, Jr. M, Staples: One of a number of juniors who come highly regarded in the FCIAC this year. Coach Will Koshansky calls him the “most competitive kid in our program.” Committed to Lafayette.
Brian Bouwman, Sr. A, Cheshire: The Rams’ senior class has a number of solid players, including this Merrimack-bound 6-footer who was second on the team in scoring as a sophomore.
Ryan Caione, Sr. M, New Canaan: Bucknell-bound standout doesn’t come as highly touted as some teammates, but he could be among the top players in the state.
Chris Canet, Sr. M, New Canaan: Like Caione, a creative contributor since his freshman year. Headed to Penn.
Henry Cohen, Sr. A/M, Weston: “He can get his hands free being guarded in a phone booth,” coach Josh Thornton said. Committed to RIT.
Ryan Colsey, Jr. A, Ridgefield: Committed to Virginia, will team with his freshman brother, Kyle (decent bloodlines there?), along with classmate C.J. Lauretani to lead the attack for his dad’s Tigers.
Matt Constantinides, Sr. FO, New Fairfield: As a freshman his work on faceoffs helped the Rebels win a Class M title. Did it again the next year. Committed to Towson.
Andy Demopoulos, Sr. G, Darien: A big sophomore standout in net, he’s committed to Brown.
Sam Erickson, Sr. LSM, Darien: Headed to West Point, a tough and tenacious defender.
David Evanchick, Jr. D, Darien: Another key piece in the defensive end for the Blue Wave. Committed to Villanova.
Owen Gaydos, Sr. M, Ridgefield: Put up some points as a sophomore and will be relied on for defense as a senior.
Jake Kozlowski, Jr. G, Waterford: One of the key players on a program that has been solid and that brought in former Hand coach Paul Deon this year.
Preston Kral, Sr. M, St. Joseph: Headed for Stony Brook, he’s athletic and plays a “polished” game, coach Brendan Talbot said.
Kevin Lynch, Sr. D, Staples: UMass-bound defender will also play man-up for the Wreckers and has a big shot.
Holt Matheis, Sr. A, Darien: There are a lot of high-end offensive players on the Blue Wave, with this co-captain and Georgetown commit likely to lead the way.
Aidan McDermott, Sr. A, Guilford: Football quarterback and a three-year starter in lacrosse, where the Grizzlies remain a solid SCC and Class M program.
Kasey Mongillo, Sr. M, North Haven: “Best player in the SCC,” one rival coach said, and those are some big words in a competitive conference. Has contributed since freshman year.
Will Montesi, Sr. M, Greenwich: He’ll play football at Army in college, but in lacrosse he’s a big, strong middie on a team that looks improved from last time out.
Jared Mozeleski, Sr. D, Glastonbury: A solid and physical defender in a program that’s regularly among the top teams in the north.
Kai Prohaszka, Jr. D, Ridgefield: Talented North Carolina-bound junior will have to be strong at the heart of a young defense corps.
Hayden Shin, Sr. FO, New Canaan: Headed for Trinity, the latest ace in the Rams’ stable of faceoff standouts.
Connor Smith, Sr. G, Notre Dame-West Haven: One of the top goalies in the state in two sports (on the No. 2 Green Knights hockey team). Committed to Sacred Heart.
Jake Sommer, Jr. D, Wilton: One of a slew of talented Warriors juniors. Committed to Notre Dame.
Kyle Stevenson, Sr. M, Fairfield Prep: A transfer from Avon Old Farms, he’s committed to Franklin and Marshall and should play in all situations for the Jesuits.
Mason Whitney, Sr. D/LSM, Fairfield Prep: The state’s hockey MVP puts up big numbers on the ice; on the field, he’s a disruptive defender. Will do a PG year at Taft.

An unusual mix of lacrosse players found a way to gel
The Duke men’s lacrosse team finished the regular season ranked second in the nation, tied for the ACC championship. The players were the top seed in their bracket in the NCAA. And they made it to the semifinals. But the unique complexity of the 2021 men’s lacrosse team found expression moments after a one-goal win over Syracuse in March, its first ACC game.
As time ran down, Duke clinging to a one-goal lead, a Syracuse attack man took a pass in the crease and shot directly into the goal mouth—where goalie Mike Adler made a point-blank save, winning the game. That’s Mike Adler, extra year of eligibility, graduate student—and transfer from St. Joseph’s University. You might call him a COVID transfer, one of some dozen extra players who swelled the Duke roster this year. Last year’s seniors, granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA, returned en masse, getting graduate degrees from the Fuqua School of Business. And students transferred to Duke, too. Graduates of Princeton, Amherst, Dartmouth, students who decided to use their extra year of eligibility to chase a championship with Duke.
Which left returning goalie, last year’s standout Turner Uppgren, not defending the goal for the most important play of the season thus far but on the sideline watching Adler make the save. Not on the sideline for long, though: Uppgren led the charge of celebrating teammates onto the field. Then, not long after the game, on Twitter, from Adler, this: “Not a big Tweeter, but Turner Uppgren is the best teammate I have ever had.”
Something special was going on in the Duke locker room.
At that point, even having a locker room was an upgrade. “We didn’t have a locker room in the fall,” said coach John Danowski. “We didn’t have the traditional social time they’re used to having. Going to a football game, a women’s soccer game, going to the movies together. All those things that are synonymous with college living have all been removed,” because of COVID. Players wore masks in the weight room, came and went without socializing, adapted to the normal of the moment. The NCAA granting an extra year of eligibility to athletes whose 2020 seasons were cut short raised the potential for locker-room friction. A class of rising seniors, expecting their moment in the spotlight, suddenly had last year’s starters coming back. Add in the transfers, stars from other schools who graduated and then, with extra eligibility, took advantage of a sudden opportunity to play for an ACC championship, to chase a national title. The team ended up with fifty-six members, where usually there are somewhere in the forties. A team that usually has a few graduate players this year had fourteen.
Yet instead of churn, instead of resentment or frustration, the 2021 team came together, a team in every sense of the word.
Uppgren explains. Given the opportunity to return—he had been a graduate student, earning a master’s from Fuqua; this year he completed his M.B.A.—he jumped: “I’d be here eight or ten years if I could.” But then “we found out there was going to be a ton of transfers, so we didn’t really know what was happening.” One of whom turned out to be one of the nation’s outstanding goalies. Uppgren was the goalie last year, a team captain the year before, and now… “How are you ready for something like that?” he asks. “There’s no playbook on it. So yeah, you’re literally just taken aback. And then I think the cool part is that initial reaction of, you’re not maybe thrilled or whatever, but then you get to meet these guys, and all that just goes out the window.”
With Adler on the team, Uppgren had competition in goal, and every athlete accepts that someone wins and then you move on. He saw Adler’s Tweet after the Syracuse game. “Obviously it’s great praise, and it means a lot coming from someone like Mike.” Last year he started in goal for a team with championship aspirations whose year was cut short by COVID. This year things are very different, but “now that I play less, you’ve got to find ways to contribute, right? I guess the case with Mike is if our team’s going to be successful, Mike’s successful, so how can I make Mike as successful as possible in the position he’s in?”
That means coaching from the sidelines, accepting complexity, and working with it.
Stories like that fill the roster. Princeton graduate Mike Sowers, considered by many the best player in college lacrosse, used his extra year to come to Duke. But no special treatment: Sowers remembers getting a little fancy in practice one day. “I threw a behind-the-back pass, and it didn’t go so well.” He shrugged it off on the field, as did everyone else. “After practice, Coach D called it out. This is, like two hours later. And he was just saying, ‘That’s not the way we do things around here.’ ” Sowers came to Duke along with his teammate Phil Robertson, older brother of senior attacker Joe Robertson. Joe was ready for his senior year in the sun, and then into the locker room walked not only Sowers but Joe’s older brother Phil.
But instead of sibling rivalry, the Robertsons felt like they were living out a childhood fantasy. “It was a dream” to play for the same school, Phil says. A year apart, they were pulled in different directions by recruiting. So though Phil recalls being devastated by the cancelation of the season and by the Ivy League’s decision not to grant its seniors additional eligibility, “I immediately started talking with Joe and kind of just said the only place I would want to play lacrosse would be at Duke with Joe.” They not only played together but lived together, in one of several houses of senior and graduate lacrosse players. Joe completely agrees. “Being separated in college and being on my own has made me realize how much I miss him, as corny as that sounds. We’ve always been best friends even through high school, so there wasn’t a single second I was going to regret this. I was just super-pumped.”
It also meant that Phil got to watch one of Joe’s greatest moments. Duke, then ranked number one, played Carolina, ranked number two, in April, and the game went to overtime. “You know,” Phil says, “growing up, like in the backyard, we were always joking around like, ‘Overtime, five seconds on the clock, counting down like, five, four, who scores the game-winning goal?’ ” In this case the ball came to Joe. “I was watching the play develop,” Phil says, “and as weird as it sounds, I saw Joe get the ball, and I just kind of knew he was going to score.” Which he did.
“And aside from running and stampeding the field with all your teammates and grabbing them, the excitement of an overtime win, after the fact I was just like, ‘I just got to watch my younger brother score the game-winning goal against UNC, playing at Duke, number one versus number two. ’ That’s something I’ll never forget.”
When Coach Danowski looks for the roots of the team’s success, he doesn’t point to the heavy roster. He traces them back directly to 2006, when the program collapsed amid false accusations of rape at a party and a general reconsideration of team culture. When the team disbanded in 2006, he says, every member of the team had permission to transfer to any program in the nation. “They had no coach, no future, in a sense, and all the seniors got together,” he says. “And they say, ‘Listen. We’re not going anywhere. We’re finishing what we started.’ All thirty-four kids stayed. Nobody transferred. And the reason I tell you that story is because I think that’s when the foundation of the program as I know it was built.”
And it’s not just love or team spirit, he says. Kids who this year lost starting spots at Duke could have played at other top schools, but they stayed—and practiced, and offered coaching and criticism. Adler agrees. “Once I got here, the culture is so ingrained,” he says. “The culture’s been this way for like ten years now, however long Coach Danowski’s been here. And the guys were super-welcoming, but you still had to earn your spot. Guys wanted to hear your story, wanted to see what you’re about. You had to be vulnerable, honest with them, and that was kind of a big thing.”
Outcompeting Uppgren at goal was intimidating. “Everybody loves Turner,” he says. “He’s kind of the heart, he’s the soul of the team. So in that aspect it was a bit off, but it was a competition, and I like that. I wouldn’t want to be handed anything, so that was awesome.” And once he’d won the job? “Turner handled it better than I could’ve handled it. He was giving me tips, telling me what Duke lacrosse was all about. He just became kind of that rock.” Adler has another year of eligibility remaining (he red-shirted his freshman year after being bitten by a shark) and hopes to stay another year.
This is what Danowski is talking about. “It has not been easy for these young men,” he says. At the end of last year’s suddenly canceled season, the program knew these issues would come up. “But we knew team chemistry needed to trump everything else.”
It has. When asked for moments that define the season, nobody talks about winning goals or comeback victories. J.T. Giles-Harris says he took “all of maybe thirty, forty minutes” to decide to stay on for a fifth year. He expected “to compartmentalize, and think that I had my senior year, so I’ve got to let these guys have their senior year and run the show and stuff.” Still he was elected captain for the second year running. He praises his teammates for their willingness to offer—and accept—the criticism that makes the team better, but looking back at the year, he talks about an almost mundane moment sitting on the field after practice as the sun goes down. “It’s cool lighting at practice, and we’re all just sitting there listening to Coach talk. You look around and see what we’re talking about and who everyone is, and it’s a cool experience. ”
But he also brings up a moment several other players did, which came after the overtime win against Carolina. “So it was like 10:30, 11 at night, whatever. And as people are leaving the field, you see like eight guys that didn’t play and a couple guys that did play out on the field, like shooting or doing wall ball.” After that exhausting overtime game, they still had a hunger for practice, for lacrosse. “You know, we won the game, but they’re still working.”

- The opposite of goalies was FOGOs, where five were taken. This illustrates how important it is for teams to not just have one starter, but have a starter-quality backup ready.
Hughes, Makar, Fox – the next generation of defenders
Q: Which defensive player in the US Collegiate Championship won the Calder Prize for NHL Rookie of the Season?
“Oh my God,” Makar says. “I have no idea.”
“I don’t know either,” adds Quinn Hughes.
Correct answer – Gary Suter and Brian Leach. Suter played for the University of Wisconsin team and won the Calder Prize in 1986. Leach played for Boston College and was voted the best NHL rookie in 1989.
Suter and Leach may be joined by one of three players in the NHL video interview on Monday: Makar (Colorado Avalanche), Hughes (Vancouver Canucks) and Adam Fox (New York Rangers)
Hughes ranks first among the newcomers in points (53 = 8 + 45, 68 games), Makar is on the second line (50 = 12 + 38, 57 games) For the first time in the entire recent history of the NHL (since 1944) The rookie top scorer list is topped by two defenders.
Video: NYA-WAN: Hughes’ OT win
Fox played 70 games with 42 points (8 goals, 34 assists). He shares fourth place with Buffalo Sabers striker Viktor Olofsson.
When the NHL suspended the season on March 12th, we had the opportunity to reflect on why these guys were able to make themselves known so quickly.
None of them are large in size: Makar’s height is 180 cm, weight – 85 kg, Hughes – 178 cm, 79 kg, Fox – 180 cm, 82 kg.They chose to get stronger physically and mentally in the US student championship and ended up in the NHL, where the manner of play changed, and they were able to fit into it due to their technical skills.
“A new generation of defenders, small and agile, is forming in the league,” Makar says. everyone can have their own way, but the game changes, it gets faster.It takes agility. ”
Hughes, the seventh pick in 2018, spent one season with the University of Michigan before signing with the Canucks. Last season he played five games with three assists.
“To go from college hockey to the NHL, you have to believe in yourself, hope that you are ready. Anything can happen, says Hughes. “The only thing left to do is to count on getting to a good place and you will succeed.”
Makar, No. 4 in 2017, spent two seasons at the University of Massachusetts Amherst before moving to Avalanche on April 15, 2019. when the team played in the playoffs.This happened three days after he was awarded the Hobie Baker Trophy (best hockey player in the US student championship). Two days earlier, Makar had played in the varsity championship final.
He joined Colorado as the team was about to warm up for the third leg of the Stanley Cup first round against the Calgary Flames. Makar was nervous, did not know what to expect. Then Tyson Barry approached him.
Video: OTT-COL: Makar scores from the blue line in the majority
“He patted me on the shoulder and said:” Everything is simple here, “says Makar.
Makar heard Barry and scored a goal with the first throw. “Avalanche” won that day – 6: 2. In 10 cup games, the defender earned 6 (1 + 5) performance points.
“I remember watching his first match with my buddies,” says Hughes. “We were in Michigan. And suddenly he scores in the tenth minute. We thought:“ Wow!
Fox was drafted by Calgary in the third round in 2016 with number 66. On June 23, 2018, he was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, and on April 30, 2019 to the Rangers.He played for the Harvard University team for three years and made his NHL debut this season.
“I was in no rush to leave university,” Fox said. “I wanted to stay there as long as possible to prepare for the transition. I thought I understood the game quite well, but I need to work on skating, physics and some other aspects that will come in handy. me in the NHL. ”
They all continue to work on themselves even now.
Hughes bought roller skates and plays hockey on the street in front of his Michigan home with brothers Jack (2019 NJ Devils # 1) and Luke (US U-17 defender).

Makar is waiting for the roller skates to arrive. He ordered them after watching Hughes play hockey on the street on social media.
“I saw a video of Quinn playing with the brothers, – said Makar. – I decided that I need to do this too.”
Let’s hope they can play for real soon.

90,000 A Brief History of the Origin and Development of Basketball: Early and Modern Rules of the Game
A brief history of basketball began in the late 19th century at the Springfield School of the Youth Christian Association.Its founder is Dr. James Naismith, physical education teacher. To diversify his indoor lessons during the winter, he came up with a new game in which you need to throw a ball into a suspended basket. More than 120 years later, this ball game has become the second most popular in the world.
A Brief History of Basketball
1891. The concept of the game was born
James Naismith came up with the idea of throwing the ball into a vegetable basket suspended above the floor. He named the game “basket ball”: “basket” + “ball”.
December 21, 1891. The first basketball game was played
Students from the Springfield training school took part in it. Naismith himself was the judge of the match.
1893 Basketball goes international
Christian Youth Organization held its first international matches.
1894 In the USA, the first basketball rules were published
Instead of a vegetable basket, a ring with a net appeared, and a shield was placed on the pole.
1904Basketball played at the St. Louis Olympics
Naismith unveiled a new ball game in an exhibition match. The same matches took place at the next two Olympics in Paris and Amsterdam.
1906 Basketball appeared in Russia
Chelny of the Mayak sports society in St. Petersburg played basketball for the first time.
1932 FIBA established
The International Basketball Federation was founded in Geneva to organize matches and oversee the development of basketball.
1935 Basketball was recognized as an Olympic sport
The first matches were held in 1936 at the Olympic Games in Berlin, 21 teams participated. At FIBA’s request, a tennis court was equipped with a field for matches.
The history of basketball: how winter and noisy students influenced the idea
Basketball appeared by accident. In the winter of 1891, 30-year-old physical education teacher James Naismith came to Springfield College of the Christian Youth Association.Immediately, he ran into problems: due to the low temperature, the students were conducting athletics classes indoors and were making a lot of noise. The head of the college’s physical education department, Luther Gulick, ordered Naismith to develop a safe game in 14 days that could keep the students entertained.
Naismith had a medical degree, which is why he was so concerned about the safety of basketball.
Naismith analyzed existing games: football, baseball, hockey, lacrosse and rugby and made three conclusions:
- The most injuries occur during possession of the ball when a player is running , hits or leads a projectile.This means that such situations need to be excluded and the ball should be moved only with the help of a pass.
- Goal protection is the most traumatic element of the game: the ball flies with great force and can cause injury. To move away from it, you need to make the goal difficult to reach – for example, hang it above the floor and throw balls with your hands.
- Among all existing balls, football is the softest and most comfortable to hold with your hands. The rest are capable of injuring players if they hit.
Later Naismith admitted that he took the idea of basketball from the game “hit the stone.”The point of the game is to knock down with a stone another stone that lies on a rock or hemp. As a child, Naismith noticed that to win, it was better to gently throw a stone along a gentle trajectory.
The history of the first rules and the development of basketball
Naismith called his new game “basketball”, combining a basket and a ball. Together with the concept, Naismith came up with 13 concise basketball rules: he forbade running with the ball and holding it with anything other than brushes. Also, James found that after three fouls the player is sent off the court, and the team ends up playing in the minority.In case of three fouls in a row by one team, a goal is awarded to its opponent. The winner of the match is the team that has thrown the most balls into the basket – one ball is equal to one goal.
The baskets were located approximately 3 meters above the floor. This distance has survived to this day – 3.05 meters
The history of basketball as a sport began on December 21, 1891: James fixed baskets on the walls of the hall about 10 feet above the floor, hung a list of 13 rules on the door and invited students.He briefly explained to them the rules of basketball, after which he tossed the ball in the center of the court and began to referee. The first drawbacks of the rules immediately emerged: since it was impossible to run with the ball, the students began tossing and catching the ball during the game.
Popularization and worldwide recognition
A few years after the appearance of basketball, the whole of Springfield was already playing. The first news about the new game appeared in the newspapers, and one of the journalists suggested calling it “naysmitball” – James politely declined.In 1893, the Christian Youth Organization held the first international basketball matches – from here began the history of the emergence of basketball in other countries.
Women also played basketball. This is a photo of the Stanford University women’s basketball team
In 1893, Naismith revised the rules to address the obvious shortcomings of basketball matches. In particular, he replaced the baskets with iron rings with a net so that after a goal the ball would fall onto the court by itself. He also added a shield to the ring to protect against spectators – before that, fans often caught the ball in the stands and threw it into the basket themselves.
By 1904, basketball had become popular in the United States and Canada. Naismith seized the opportunity to persuade the organizers of the St. Louis Olympics to host an exhibition basketball match. James did the same at the next two Olympics in Paris (1908) and Amsterdam (1912), popularizing basketball in Europe.
The history of basketball as a world sports discipline began in the 30s of the last century. In 1932, FIBA was founded in Geneva – an analogue of football FIFA. The goal of the organization was to popularize basketball in the world and organize tournaments.On the initiative of FIBA in 1935 basketball was admitted to the program of the Olympic Games. The first matches took place at the Berlin Olympics in 1936. 21 teams took part in the competition.
At the Berlin Olympics, the entire podium was taken by the American teams: the USA (1), Canada (2) and Mexico
Modern basketball rules
Almost nothing remains of the original Naismith rules in basketball. Over time, FIBA abandoned the ban on running with the ball – now players can dribble by hitting the floor of the court and even take two steps with the ball in their hands.The ball still cannot be punched, but it can be touched with any part of the body except the legs.
Basketball match times have increased from two halves of 15 minutes to four quarters. The duration of one quarter is 12 minutes in the USA and Asia and 10 minutes in FIBA-sponsored tournaments. The rules for scoring have also changed – if previously one point was always awarded for one thrown ball, now the number of points depends on the distance of the throw.
Michael Jordan – provocative champion
What could be worse than keeping an eye on the world’s best player on the pitch, who can not only make fun of you by throwing a three in your face, but also a talc master? Probably not … The players who kept MJ on the court had a difficult life.This is what duels with Michael looked like. Not entirely fair, because Jordan was able to morally destroy his rival, and then finish him off the same night, having thrown +30 points.
His airiness provoked everyone and everything in the league. Whether you are his rival, teammate, club owner, or the President of the United States, he simply did not know fear. If he wanted to play with someone in the head, he would do it. We present to you some of the most famous situations where Michael has shown that he is great at provoking his opponents and thereby weaken them.
# 1 You’re weak and already
Victim: Rodney McCrae
According to ESPN journalist Rick Reilly, Michael Jordan could have ruined the career of his teammate Rodney McCrae . In 1993, when Jordan was covering his clubmate during one of the Bulls training sessions, he started his “conversation.” As it turned out later, he exaggerated a little. “You are weak! You were always weak! You can’t even hit the jumper! He shouted right in the face of his friend MJ.That same season, Chicago won the title and McCrae secured his first and final ring of his career, averaging just 3.5 points per game in his last season in Illinois.
# 2 Let me introduce you this
victim: Nick Anderson.
There were times when Jordan was so confident in his abilities that told defenders on the court, that he was going to do . Sometimes he had even reported his double-domain games before, but still no one could stop him.Shaq O’Neill recalls when he was still playing for the Orlando Magic that MJ told his former clubmate Nick Anderson:
“I’ll run. I will dribble the ball between my legs twice. Then I’ll make a fake pump and throw it in the trash. In the end, I will look at you. ”
So what’s next? According to O’Neill, “It just happened”
# 3 Victim Free throw without looking
: Dikembe Mutombo
Regarding provocations, we must not forget about the free throw with closed eyes.In a 1991 game against the Denver Nuggets, Michael Jordan found himself on the free-throw line. The basketball player himself had a great day, and after the first throw, Dikembe Mutombo began to provoke Jordan with thrash talcum powder, to which the offender replied: “This is for you,” then closed his eyes and shot the second free throw. …
# 4 One, two, three
victims: Steve Smith
Steve Smith and Michael Jordan loved to tease each other.One day Smith heard Michael counting something … “He said something like” 38 “, but I didn’t know what it was about. Then he said “36”. After a while, Heath realized that Jordan was counting down to the 40 points he actually scored that night.
# 5 I said that you are not forcing me to become
a victim: the whole Vancouver Grizzlies team
1995 Vancouver The Grizzlies started the fourth quarter 11: 2 ahead of the Bulls.Increasing the difference, Derrick Martin, running past the bench in Chicago, shouted: “I told you today that you are scoring!” Following this comment, Jordan returned to the dance floor shouting to Martin, “I told you not to provoke me . “ MJ scored 19 more points in just 6 minutes, giving Chicago a 94-88 win.
# 6 Try to stop me
Victim: Craig Elo
On March 28, 1990, Michael Jordan scored 69 points with 23/37 in play.When you are in this shape, it will be extremely difficult to stop you. As with Nick Anderson, Michael knew he could tell Craig Elo what he was going to do, and poor Craig had nothing to say.
“Listen. I hit everything, so I will tell you what I am going to do, and you will try to stop me. ” – provoked Michael. “You know there is nothing you can do. You won’t stop me. You cannot hide me, ”he added.
The Bulls star then told the defenders what he was going to play. “I will catch the ball with my left hand and then run to the left to the end of the line, where I hit the fade . “ We don’t need to say what happened next?
# 7 Jordan vs. Barkley,
Victim: Charles Barkley
Like Smith, Barkley liked to tease MJ. “Charles who does not speak is not Charles. He is just like me, he has hair. ” Jordan laughed. From a lot of chatter from both men, I chose the one that stuck with me the most. “Once I went up to him and said:“ You are old. He’s two days older than me, ”says Barkley . “ He told me, ‘You won’t get a chance today, you never got .” This is true. But Barkeli was one of the few who understood the essence of the duel with Jordan.
# 8 Victim Jordan
: Keith Gibbs
The next victim was “The Dude in Every Basketball Movie,” a retired college player who later became the actor known as Keith Gibbs.He has appeared in titles such as The Air Up There, Blue Chips and Space Jam.
“When we filmed Space Jam, we played basketball for three days. Three days later, I thought it was over and went to the airport because I wanted to leave the city. My phone rang and the receiver asked: “ Where are you?” Why aren’t you here? “ I answered: ” Are you still playing? ” I did not know about it “. Gibbs describes the game on set as the NBA All-Star Game, where celebrities such as Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller and Grant Hill met on the dance floor.
“In one of the actions I had to cover for Jordan because Chris shouted, ‘Kate, you are taking him.’ Gibbs says: “Jordan hit the jumper from 35 feet. With an outstretched leg, tongue – in his style. Then he shouted at me: “Hairpin ***** from the field!”
# 9 I Am The Greatest
Victim: O. Jay Mayo
In 2006, O. Jay Mayo was one of the best players in his college … He was also a confident player, which was later revealed to be held back by Jordan, who attended his summer camp that year.Mayo spoke of 43-year-old Michael, saying that he couldn’t stop him. Imagine that the boy meets the master for the first time.
“There were people everywhere, I could not go where I wanted to, so I decided to stop the camp. Send the kids to bed, ”Jordan said. “The next morning we went back to the dance floor and he started by saying“ You won’t cover me ”. In the end I said: “You may be the best player in college, but I’m the best basketball player in the world.” This is where MJ finished his lesson.
10. Self-Confidence Is Key to
Victim: Washington Bullets
During the final round of 1997, Chris Webber still remembers a photo of Jordan entering the Washington dressing room ahead of his third meeting at the US Airways Center. Back then, Chicago were leading 2-0, and Michael himself was so confident in his next title that Bullets entered the locker room with 90,069 a lit cigar of victory and asked who would stop him today . The overconfidence was justified when Chicago defeated Washington that night and advanced to the second round.
# 11 A fat, powerless striker …
Victim: Stacy King
If you thought Jordan’s teammates had a hard time provoking, then you were wrong. They even got it! In Jordan Rules, Sam Smith writes about an incident that is hard to believe.
On the eve of the meeting with Utah, some office workers attended the training, putting several signatures for the stars of Chicago. These promotions take place twice a year, then players line up in a circle and sign balloons, T-shirts and other accessories for various types of charity auctions.
“Look,” Michael said . “ Have you ever heard of a guy with a height of 211 cm and 104 kg? Someone so big and fat cannot collect three balls on the field. How is it possible that he runs all over the field and collects only two balls? “
The players gathered next to them covered their faces so as not to laugh, and Stacey King himself, because it was about him, answered shortly: ” Fuck you, Michael! ”
However, Jordan continued: “The guy is so big and he only collects one ball … He can’t even get in someone’s ass to collect more than one.A big fat man who collects one ball in three games. A strong striker … Maybe you should call this position a powerless striker? » After that, King could not resist, he got tired of Jordan, and he left.
# 12 How easy is it to ruin a career?
Victim: Muggsy Boges
After losing one point to Chicago, the Charlotte Hornets needed one basketball to stay in the 1995 playoffs. Muggsey Bogus started the Hornets game when Jordan faced Charlotte’s quarterback.
After an instant exchange of balls between the Hornets’ perimeter, MJ stepped aside, thereby giving Bogus space. He shouted: “Come on, you fucking midget!” Charlotte’s player missed and the Bulls advanced to the semi-finals against the Orlando Magic.
According to Johnny Bach, who coached the Hornets in 1995, God told him that this moment ruined his career . He never played the same game again, averaging just 5.9 points per game compared to the previous three years when the player scored twice despite being so small.
Brothers in the NHL | NBA and NHL Blog
At the moment, there are 18 pairs of brothers in the league, including the recently retired Sedin brothers.
Jamie and Geordie Benn
Despite being brothers and starting out in the same franchise, Jamie and Geordie Benn took different paths into the NHL. While the Dallas Stars drafted Jamie in the 5th round of 2007, Geordie fought his way through the minor leagues. He had to play for Victoria Salmon Kings in the ECHL and Allen Americans in the former CHL.
Jamie originally intended to play in the undergraduate league for the University of Alaska, but chose the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets instead. With only two seasons in the Junior Major League under his belt, the youngest of the Benn brothers was called up to the Dallas Stars main team and played their first full season in 2009. In the same year, Geordie signed with the Allen Americans and both brothers ended up in Texas.
Today, Jamie is the captain of the Stars, which he has been since the 2013-14 season.He played for Canada at the Sochi Olympics, scoring 2 goals in 6 games, including the only and winning goal against the United States (1-0). He became the league’s top scorer in 2014-15 with 4 points in the final game of the season and finishing with 87 points. On July 15, 2016, he renewed his contract with Dallas for 8 years and will remain with the team until the 2024-25 season.
Geordie spent three seasons at the Dallas farm club in the AHL at the Texas Stars club. He started playing for the main team on a regular basis only in 2013-14.On the 2017 deadline, he was traded to the Montreal Canadiens for another defender, Greg Paterin.
Marcus and Nick Foligno
Raised in a family of former player and coach and now a Vegas Scout, Mike Foligno, Markus and Nick were born and raised in Buffalo. Due to the four-year age gap, the brothers never played together on the same team. Given that their parents are Canadians, the brothers have dual citizenship (note, since they were born in the United States and their parents are Canadians). The elder brother Nick plays for the United States, while the younger one represents Canada in tournaments.
Nick was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the first round of the 2006 draft. He was traded to Columbus on July 1, 2012 for Mark Metau. After the 2014-15 season, he was named team captain. In this role, he remains to this day. He has represented the US national team in the world championships three times, most recently in 2016, with 5 points in 10 matches.
Younger brother Marcus was selected in 2009 by the Bufffalo Sabers. He made his league debut on December 11, 2011 and scored his first goal on March 10, 2012.On June 30, he became part of a large exchange and traveled to the Minnesota Wild. As a restricted free agent, he renewed his contract with Minnesota for 4 years. His only performance on the international stage took place in 2011 at the World Youth World Championship, where he won silver in the Canadian national team. In 7 matches, he earned 4 points.
The Foligno family (besides the Batyi, there are 2 more sisters) supports many charity programs after their mother died of cancer in 2009.Currently, both brothers and their sisters Kara and Lisa run the Janis Foligno Foundation. The foundation partners with 9 charities, including Meals on Wheels and Northern Ontario Families of Children with Cancer.
Markus and Mikael Granlund
Before moving to North America, both Granlund brothers played for HIFK in the Finnish Hockey League. Older brother Mikael was drafted 9th overall by Minnesota Wild. Markus was selected by the Calgary Flames in the second round a year later.
Mikael made his NHL debut on January 19, 2013, the first day of a lockout-shortened season. On the same day, he scored his first goal in the league. He developed to one of Wild’s best players and on August 1, 2017, extended his contract with them for another 3 years.
Marcus made his debut with the Flames on February 27, 2014, and scored his first goal on March 5. On February 22, 2016, he was traded in the Vancouver Canucks for Hunter Shinkaruk.
Both brothers represent the Finnish national team in many different international tournaments.Mikael played 5 times in the youth world championships, four times played in the senior world championships, once in the World Cup and once in the Olympics.

Dougie and Freddie Hamilton
Dougie’s younger brother, the Boston Bruins, picked 9th in the 2011 Draft. He was supposed to be part of the Bruins’ backbone, but on June 26, 2015, he was traded to the Calgary Flames for three draft picks, one in the first round and two in the second round.After becoming a limited free agent, he quickly signed a 6-year $ 34.5 million deal. As part of the Flames, he made a top pair of defenders with Mark Giordano. Already this 2018 offseason, Calgary suddenly pulled off a deal with Carolina, in which Dougie Hamilton became the defender of the Hurricanes.
Dougie played for the Canadian national team 4 times. Gold at the Ivan Glinka tournament in 2013, silver at the World Cup for players under 17 in 2011, bronze at the 2012 youth championship.
Freddie was drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the 5th round of the 2010 draft.He only played 12 matches for the Sharks and has played on two more teams since then. He scored his first goal for the Colorado Avalanche and was later traded to Calgary where he joined Dougie. On January 4, the Arizona Coyotes took him from the draft refusals and Freddie is still listed in their composition. The eldest of the brothers won a gold medal in the World Championship for players under 17 in 2009, as well as bronze in the youth championship in 2012.
Oddly enough, the parents of these Toronto natives have nothing to do with hockey.They met in 1984 at the Los Angeles Summer Olympics. His father won a rowing medal and his mother was a member of the Canadian women’s basketball team.
Jimmy and Kevin Hayes
Natives of Massachusetts, both brothers played in the undergraduate league for Boston College.

Daniel and Henrik Sedin
Gemini have recently retired and we consider it necessary to mention them in this article.
The Gray Brothers are the only twins in the NHL and there are many amusing cases associated with this. Once they changed places in interviews, and in Sweden they were periodically confused by the judges.
Before being drafted in 1999 under No. 2 and No. 3, Daniel and Henrik played for their hometown MODO team in the SHL (Swedish Hockey League). They were both drafted by the Vancouver Canucks, GM Brian Burke was the 2nd pick, and the Canucks were the 3rd. His goal was to draft both Sedins, and he got the opportunity after the Atlanta Thrashers picked Patrick Stefan as # 1.
Both have had excellent careers since joining the league.Both have made two seasons and both won the Art Ross Trophy. Henrik added the Hart Trophy to this in 2010, and Daniel finished 2nd in the vote in 2011. On the international stage, they played superbly for the Swedish national team.

In 2014, the brothers and their wives formed the Sedin Family Foundation to help schools and community centers in the Vancouver area.
Brendan & Riley Smith

Both played in the student league and both were finalists for the Hobey Baker Award as the best player in the country.Older brother Brendan played for the University of Wisconsin and was a finalist in 2010, Riley played for the University of Miami and was a finalist in 2012.

Eric, Jordan & Mark Staal
Although there are many brothers in the league, it is very rare to have 4 brothers playing at the same time. This is exactly what the Staals achieved when their youngest brother, Jared, made his NHL debut on April 25, 2013. He joined brothers Eric and Jordan at the Carolina Hurricanes and took to the ice against the New York Rangers.If their 4th brother, Mark, was healthy (he was a Rangers player), then all four would be on the ice in the same game.

Mark – the only four-brother defender – was drafted 12th in 2005 by the New York Rangers. He played his first league game on October 4, 2007 and remained a Ranger throughout his career. When he was healthy, Mark was a great defender with attacking potential, but he has a very long history of injuries, including those that have threatened his entire career, including multiple concussions and a lacerated retina when the puck hit his eye.He played 5 times for the Canadian national team and won 4 gold medals, including 2 victories in the youth championships.
In the 2006 Draft, the Pittsburgh Penguins chose Jordan Staal with a joint 2nd overall. Like his brother Eric, Jordan immediately joined the team and immediately stepped up the game.
