LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Wisconsins work on the glass has earned the Badgers a shot at the Mau Invitational title. Adidas Pas Cher Destockage .Ethan Happ had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Bronson Koenig scored 20 points and No. 16 Wisconsin overwhelmed Georgetown on the boards in a 73-57 win Tuesday.The Badgers had a 19-1 advantage on offensive rebounds, leading to 20 second-chance points, and a 50-21 edge overall.I dont think were where we need to be or can be anywhere near that yet, Wisconsin coach Greg Gard said. But tonight was definitely a step in the right direction and obviously their rebounding shows the effort part of that, which has always been there.Wisconsin (4-1) used a short burst out of halftime to take control and stayed there behind the inside-out game of Happ and Koenig.The Badgers went 5 for 22 from 3-point range but made up for it inside, outscoring the Hoyas 38-16 in the paint and cleaning up nearly everything that came off the rim.The victory put Wisconsin in Wednesday nights championship game against No. 4 North Carolina, a 107-75 winner over Oklahoma State.I thought everybody did a good job of working hard and trying to get position and just going to the glass every single time, whether they thought it was a make or a miss, everyone went to the glass, Koenig said.Georgetown (2-3) held its own through the first half despite not shooting particularly well. The Hoyas never found their touch in the second half and had no answer for Wisconsins push after the break.LJ Peak led Georgetown with 18 points and Rodney Pryor had 14.We have to get some guys that understand that its not just about points and minutes, and care about all aspects of the game, Hoyas coach John Thompson III said.Neither team shot very well in the first half, except for Koenig and Pryor.Koenig was looking for his shot early, scoring eight quick points. He had 14 at halftime on 5-of-10 shooting to help the Badgers to a 32-29 lead.Pryor, who had 26 points against Oregon, scored 11 on 4-of-8 shooting, including 3 of 5 from beyond the 3-point arc.Wisconsin opened the second half with a brief burst and Koenig banked one in from nearly straight on, pushing its lead to 44-34.The Badgers began to stretch the lead from there, extending it to 53-39 on Charles Thomas putback midway through.Georgetown never made up the difference.They dont beat themselves, Thompson said. You have to go out and find a way to beat them.BIG PICTUREThe Badgers have bounced back nicely from a loss to Creighton with two wins in Maui and can cap it off with the title on Wednesday.The Hoyas put up a fight early, but have work to do if theyre going to compete with teams as talented as Wisconsin.POLL IMPLICATIONSUnless the Badgers get blown out in the title game, their run in Maui should move them up a notch or two in next weeks poll.UP NEXTWisconsin will face the winner between No. 4 North Carolina and Oklahoma State in Wednesdays championship game.Georgetown faces the North Carolina-Oklahoma State loser in the third-place game.

At age 40, Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan continues to serve honorably as one of hockeys great ambassadors. While leading a rebuilding club last season, Doan enjoyed one of the better seasons of his 20-year pro career and paced the Coyotes with 28 goals. This season, Doan has been tasked with mentoring one of the leagues youngest teams, which includes teammate Jakob Chychrun, an 18-year-old defenseman who was born almost three years after Doan was drafted, in 1995.The arrival of all this young talent -- including Arizona native Auston Matthews, with whom Doan skated as part of the Coyotes youth program -- makes Doan excited about the future of the game. Even if it does make him also feel kind of How complicated is it being a veteran on such a young team?Shane Doan:?At one point we had nine guys 21 and under. Thats pretty incredible. I dont think its like that anywhere else in professional hockey, including the AHL or the East Coast League. Obviously, its exciting for the future, but its a little more difficult for the You have four teenage children. Does that help you deal with the kids on your team?Doan: My oldest daughter is the same age as some of them. There are obviously similarities. But these guys are so mature. As a hockey player, you leave home when youre 15, 16 years old. It forces you to grow up. Our guys are great. Theyve handled themselves incredibly well. Its fun to be around Are younger players better prepared for the NHL today?Doan: I think, because of social media, you get to see the day-to-day life of an NHL player a lot more. If you follow someone on Twitter or Instagram or whatever, you see what goes on a little bit more because of that. That makes it a little bit easier. You understand things you may not have understood in the past because there just wasnt exposure to Do you wish you had social media when you were younger?Doan: No. Im so glad, so thankful that I didnt. Its crazy how much it affects our day-to-day lives as players and how much it affects the young What are the main differences today for young players compared with 20 years ago?Doan: Their skill level. It all comes down to exposure. When someone in the Swedish Elite league makes an incredible move, then the kids everywhere get to watch it and practice it -- and it becomes part of the hockey community. I think it pushes the skill level so much quicker because everybody can see things and their imaginations are kind of expanded by being able to see what other guys are doing around the world. In the past, if you saw it on the late-night sports TV shows, it was pretty amazing, but you only saw it once. Now everyone watches it over and over and can break it down. I think that helps. The skill of the young guys is just incredible Youre skating alongside players whose fathers you played with and against. Have you talked to any of them about playing with their dads?Doan: Ive played with quite a few of them.?Max Domi?and Connor Murphy. Weve hadd?Philip Samuelsson?and Brett Hextall on the team. Vente Adidas Pas Cher. Getting to play against Matthew Tkachuk after playing with his dad, or Josh Manson in Anaheim. They were in our dressing room as kids when I was a Have you reminded them about how you saw them as kids in the dressing room?Doan: For sure. Without a doubt. Thats one of the things that, as a player, you remember. Matty and Josh were so young, they dont really remember. But my daughter is the same age as Matty. They were both born here [in Arizona]. Ive gotten to know Josh as he got older. Its exciting. Its fun. You feel old, but you enjoy it, for Do you ever chat with Matthew Tkachuk about how you bought and moved into his childhood home in Arizona?Doan: Oh, yeah. We have horses here and Matty would come out and go riding at the farm. It was You skated with Auston Matthews while he was in the Coyotes youth program. What do you remember about him as an emerging young player?Doan: I got to know his family a little bit. His mom and dad go to the same church that we go to. Hes an unbelievable kid. Hes an even better person than player, and thats exciting because hes an incredible Was his talent evident right away?Doan: The first time he skated with us, it was just shinny. I think his team won or lost 5-4. He had all his teams goals and it was against NHL guys, and he was a year away from being drafted. I was pretty How important is it for youth hockey players in Arizona to see someone like Auston make it?Doan: Its huge for us. It gives validation to an organization like the Junior Coyotes. Any time anyone asks how the program is, you can say Auston Matthews grew up in the program. Thats huge for minor hockey and grass Your general manager, John Chayka, is more than a decade your junior. How often does he come to you with questions?Doan: Hes not afraid to come and ask for your opinion. But at the end of the day hes the one who makes the decisions. Thats the way it goes. As much as I think every player wants his opinions heard, its not our [call]. Hes very professional in that he asks questions and wants to gain perspective from people who might have experienced a few things. At the same time, he recognizes its his call and he makes those decisions when he needs Youre coming off one of your best statistical seasons, but have you given any thought to retirement?Doan: It crosses your mind daily. But you dont make those decisions on a daily basis. Ten days ago, if you had asked me I probably would have retired on the spot. Today if you asked me, I think Id sign a five-year deal. It kind of goes back and forth. You understand you cant make rash decisions like that. It has to be something you make over the course of the year. I kind of approached last year the same way I approach this year. Ill just see how I feel at the end.
