Leftovers & Loose Ends

We can’t always cover every little thing that has to do with DU and Denver, so here are some links to various pieces of content from all over the internet. It’s been kind of a slow news week at University and Evans thus far if you can’t tell. Take a look at everything below!

  • Have you seen the Warrior promotional video that was created during DU’s fall lacrosse game against the Canadian National Team?

  • 5280 did an interview with Rodney Billups. When asked if a personal goal was to go to the NCAA’s, he said, “That was the emphasis in my interview. I want to do something that no one has ever done and help the student athletes do something they never thought they could do. Want to read the full interview? Go Here.
  • Jim Montgomery is one of the best coaches in college hockey. One of the keys to success is faceoffs. Montgomery talks about the art of the faceoff in this coaching video.

  • With balmy temps in Denver, it is hard to believe that basketball season starts next weekend with women’s hoops Friday night and men tipoff on Saturday night. Plan on joining a pregame party at the Gold Club for $10.00 per head from 5:30 – 7:00. Register Here.
  • “If we had [him] on our team two years ago, we’d be two-time defending champs,” junior midfielder Tyler Pace said before last year’s NCAA playoffs. “But he doesn’t think of himself as the big guy on our team.” Who is Pace talking about? DU’s star faceoff man Trevor Baptiste. US Lacrosse Magazine  did a feature on Baptiste – The Perfect Storm: Trevor Baptiste here

  • In case you missed it, it is all about character. Skill counts, too, but Jamie Franks has developed a soccer powerhouse building a team with the right kind of guys. Go to this DU link to listen to the podcast (@106 Minute+ here). They put their streak on the line tonight against a tough Portland Team at CIBER Field.
  • Brace yourself for a fantastic finish for DU volleyball. The Pioneers defend their regular season crown with two home games starting Friday night. Then, it looks like the title will go down to a South Dakota State – Denver finale in Vermillion, South Dakota. Both teams are tied at 12-2 in the Summit and a road collision will likely determine the regular season winner. If you haven’t gone to see a match, there are two games left before the Summit League tournament returns to Hamilton Gym.
