Brian O’Driscoll feels being on this year’s British and Irish Lions tour is helping to keep him young. At the same time, there is a significant effect an elder statesman like O’Driscoll can have upon the new generation in terms of aiding their maturing process, and the Dubliner is very much keeping in mind that he is a thoroughly seasoned campaigner mixing with plenty of players for whom the Lions environment is entirely new. “There are guys on a completely different level to you, in their early 20s and on a massive learning curve,” he said. “I’m far from knowing it all, but I’ve seen a lot of things now in my professional career.” Of course, beyond the range of ages, the key way in which Lions tours bring together different types of player is with regard to nationalities, as men accustomed to taking each other on in international competition become team-mates. Leinster man O’Driscoll said: “The Lions is so unique; you kick lumps out of all these guys year on year, and they’re massive adversaries. Then all of a sudden they become your team-mates. “You’re forced to bond in a six or seven-week period, and play for one another against one of the three best teams in the world. You have preconceived notions about what sort of guys particular individuals are. You see the way they carry on on the pitch, and you might think they’re not your type of people. “But then they can completely surprise you; you can room with someone for two or three days and they become your best friend.” The 34-year-old Ireland centre, who has been involved in three previous Lions tours, was the oldest member of the squad in Australia until ex-Wales winger Shane Williams, 36, was called up ahead of Tuesday’s match against the Brumbies. And regarding his younger colleagues within the 2013 party, O’Driscoll told the Radio Times: “I have 12 years and more on some of these guys. Stuart Hogg is the youngest guy in the squad at 20. I’m 34, so I’ve got 14 years on him. That’s a frightening thought – 12 years ago he was in short pants! It keeps me young, though. I go into training every day and the level of conversation definitely keeps me young.” Press Association
Published on February 2, 2016 at 10:32 pm Syracuse’s first lead came under a minute into overtime, but the Orange (16-8, 6-5 Atlantic Coast) escaped with a 68-60 overtime win over Virginia Tech (12-11, 4-6) on Tuesday night in the Carrier Dome. The Orange struggled to score in regulation against the worst defensive team in the conference, but a string of deep balls in the extra period put Syracuse above .500 in ACC play for the first time.Here are three quick reactions from the game.OutletEven as Syracuse couldn’t hit water from a boat in the first half from 3-point range, Tyler Roberson grabbed eight boards and added eight points to stabilize the Orange. Four of those were of the offensive variety, which equaled Virginia Tech’s first-half team total.A second-half sequence where he flushed a two-handed dunk through contact and hit the front end of a one-and-one seconds later erased VT’s lead for the first time since the beginning of the game. It also gave him a double-double with about 10 minutes to go, his sixth on the season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse finished with a 14-7 advantage in second-chance points as Roberson ended with six offensive boards, 15 total rebounds and 12 points.Mustached manTyler Lydon thrust his arms in the air from the bench with 30 seconds remaining in overtime. The freshman had fouled out earlier in the extra period and was relegated to the bench for the finish of a frantic game that Syracuse rarely had in its grasp.Minutes earlier, Lydon corralled a missed layup by Michael Gbinije and slammed it home to put Syracuse up five for its largest lead of the night at the time. He provided a more than sufficient reinforcement to Roberson’s standout day down low.Lydon finished with 13 points and six rebounds, along with being the only Syracuse player not to miss a foul shot.Grinding it outTrevor Cooney stepped to the foul line for his inevitable first points late in the first half, an 0-for-6 mark from the field already to his name. But two misses and two scrunched faces from his dad in the stands later, Cooney stood 0-for-3 from the line in addition to a fruitless shooting first half.The first shot of the second half went to him, though, and he sunk a 3 from right in front of Syracuse’s bench to cut Virginia Tech’s lead to three. That’s about all he had going for him in regulation.Cooney finished an abysmal 1-of-9 from the field with only three free throws to account for his regulation scoring after opening the second stanza with a long ball. But with three minutes left in overtime, his second 3-pointer and made field goal of the night, Cooney screamed toward the Carrier Dome roof after putting the Orange up 61-58, a lead that never vanished.

Archimede received a yellow card in the 48th minute. Then, a ball came toward him and Pittsburgh’s Sito Sena three minutes later. Archimede went up leading with his elbow, and Sena fell flat to the ground. The medical staff rushed out, Pitt players sprinted to the official and Archimede was forced to walk off the pitch at SU Soccer Stadium for the second game this season.“It’s a big learning curve for us,” midfielder Hilli Goldhar said. “We’ve had to deal with it twice now, so I’d say we’re pretty used to it now.”For 45 minutes of Friday’s match against Pittsburgh (3-3-2, 1-1-1 Atlantic Coast), Syracuse (3-2-4, 0-1-2 ACC) played a man-down. Two early goals cemented a 1-1 tie, but with a 10-on-11 matchup, the Orange dropped their defensive formation and only got offense from counter attacks and set pieces. SU held on down a player in the second half, and five minutes into overtime, Pittsburgh lost a player and evened the playing field. But despite both teams at 10 players apiece in the final stretch, Syracuse couldn’t muster another score en route to its fourth draw in five home games this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“That’s two ACC games that we’ve had to play down a guy,” head coach Ian McIntyre said. “In both those games, we worked extremely hard to get something out of them.”In a first half with 22 players on the pitch, Syracuse and Pittsburgh went back-and-forth, showcasing high octane offenses. 12 minutes in, SU’s Massimo Ferrin faked forward and his defender fell backward, trying to catch his footing after the mishap. Trying to find space, he shimmied right-to-left. The defender was late. Then, back to right. The defender was behind the action, again. “You gotta be a little tricky, little unpredictable,” Ferrin said.The senior attack swiped a cross toward the left side of the net. All Goldhar had to do was fall forward to head in his first goal of the season. “Honestly, I haven’t had too many headers in my day,” said 5-foot-9 Goldhar.Edward Kizza, the ACC’s leading scorer last season with 15 goals, was doubled in the box often to limit his production. The Pittsburgh junior didn’t have an assist coming into Friday’s matchup, but in the 36th minute, Kizza snuck deep into the box and three defenders converged. Knowing the pressure would pull toward him, Kizza slid the ball back to a free Veljko Petkovic. As Petkovic saw the ball touch nylon, he let out an echoing yell at Syracuse’s Julio Fulcar, who sat on the pitch. Archimede’s first red card came in Syracuse’s only other home ACC game against Louisville. It happened seconds before the end of regulation, but throughout two overtime periods, the Orange held onto a 0-0 draw. On Friday, the Orange would do the same. McIntyre yelled for players like Severin Soerlie to drop back, playing safe with his midfield and backline. “We were trying to pick our poisoning,” McIntyre said.But the Orange still mustered an even amount of chances. Midfielder Ryan Raposo kept the ball on his foot for two hops, but after twisting for space, lofted a shot into the Syracuse practice fields behind the goal. Defender Nyal Higgins pushed up for a free kick and almost scored after his head grazed the ball, but the shot fizzed wide. Then Ferrin, with seven minutes left in regulation, shot low, almost past Pittsburgh goalkeeper Arie Ammann’s swinging arms.When the Orange pushed overtime, the Panthers lost a man themselves. In the 95th minute, Petkovic received the second red card of the game for an elbow to the head of midfielder Simon Triantafillou. Petkovic patted each referee on the back and sprinted off the field. With a 10-on-10 now, Ferrin crept toward the penalty box 103 minutes into the game. After passing out to Raposo, he was left alone with Ammann again. The senior went for the game-winner, five yards from the net, but the Pitt goalkeeper blocked it. After an eventual boot out of play, Ammann pumped his fist.“I’m a little down on myself,” Ferrin said. “That’s one I could be scoring 10 out of 10 times.”So the Orange settled with a tie. Their longest man-down scenario of the season didn’t change the game. But its offense had plenty of opportunities to clinch a win. Instead, McIntyre’s team will live with just a point in its conference standings, again. “We were absolutely fantastic. Just warriors to hang in there,” McIntyre said. Comments
