Virginia Tech has extended the contract of mens basketball coach Buzz Williams through the 2022-23 season. Nike Air Max Zero Essential Black .Athletic director Whit Babcock announced the extension Wednesday.Williams has coached the Hokies for two seasons, and last year produced one of the best turnarounds in Atlantic Coast Conference history. Virginia Tech went from 11-22 overall and 2-16 in league play in Williams first season to 20-15 overall and 10-8 in the ACC last year.The Hokies also beat a pair of top 10 teams -- No. 4 Virginia and No. 7 Miami -- and won a program-record six consecutive league games on their way to a spot in the NIT.Last season also ended a string of four consecutive last-place finishes in league play.Williams, who came to Virginia Tech after six seasons at Marquette, originally signed a seven-year contract.If he remains at Virginia Tech through the life of his extension, he will make $3.3 million in the 2022-23 season.Coach Williams has made a positive impact on the culture of our basketball program at Virginia Tech in a very short time, Babcock said in a release from the school. Just as importantly, hes a teacher, an educator, and hes served as an ambassador for Virginia Tech, not only on our campus and in Virginia, but also all across the country.The school also announced that Williams and his family have endowed two scholarships at the school, one to be awarded to a student at Virginia Tech with a disability and the other for a female student-athlete, preferably a minority who is also the first person in her family to pursue a college degree. Nike Air Max Zero Mens White . JOHNS, N. Nike Air Max Zero Essential Mens . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. In recent times South Africa has presented some of the toughest conditions for batsmen: the pitches usually have a fair covering of grass, and offer plenty of seam movement and bounce for fast bowlers. In ODIs, though, much of this changes: the grass is shaved off, but the pitches still retain true bounce, making them excellent batting surfaces on which you can hit through the line of the ball without worrying about seam movement or uneven bounce.That has been in evidence in the ongoing South Africa-Australia ODI series, with both teams, and especially the home side, making huge scores: Australias 294 in the first game was chased down with more than 13 overs to spare, while South Africa made 361 in the second, and successfully chased 371 in the third. In three matches the average run rate has been 6.99, the second highest so far in any ODI series of two or more matches. (The highest is 7.15, in the England-New Zealand series last year.) A part of the reason could be the absence of Australias top bowlers for this series, but that doesnt explain the economy rates of some of the top bowlers who are playing in this series - Dale Steyns is 7.33, Kagiso Rabadas 6.66, and Adam Zampas 7.52.In the last five years, the scoring rates in South Africa have gone up significantly, to 5.66. The only host country with a higher run rate - among countries that have hosted 25-plus ODIs since the start of 2012 - is India, where the rate is 5.70. During this period, there have been eight totals in excess of 350, which is the joint highest, along with India. Seven of those have come in the last couple of years, which indicates how batting-friendly conditions have been in South Africa recently.South Africa wasnt always such a great country for ODI batting, though. In the period between 2005 and 2011, the run rate here was 5.10, which was lower than those in India, New Zealand, Pakistan, England and Australia. In the last few years, though, batsmen have relished ODI conditions in South Africa as much as they have probably disliked them in Tests. That is most apparent in the opening partnerships: in Tests the average opening stand since the start of 2012 is 31.37, which is lower than the average in all countries except Sri Lanka; in ODIs, the average is 42.53, whichh is second highest among all countries, after Indias 44. Nike Air Max Zero Womens White. 1. The run rate in opening stands has been 5.42, which is higher than in all countries except Sri Lanka and New Zealand.In Tests the early overs with the new ball are usually a period when bowlers inflict plenty of damage in South Africa. That doesnt seem to be the case in ODIs, where the average runs per wicket in the first 15 overs is 39.19, which is better than the average in all countries except India. The run rate is only 4.83 - Sri Lanka, New Zealand and England have all done better - but that picks up in the middle overs, to 5.69, which is the highest among all teams.On the truer pitches of South Africa, these overs represent the best scoring opportunities for the batting teams, unlike in the subcontinent, where pitches often slow up and make it difficult for batsmen to force the pace. The last ten havent been as prolific, relatively, but the middle overs have ensured the overall run rate stays extremely high. In the ongoing South Africa-Australia series, the two teams have been going at 6.53 in the middle overs. These have been tough times for bowlers in South Africa, but some of them have risen to the challenge, taken wickets and kept the runs in check. South Africa have a 23-12 win-loss record at home during this period, and while the batsmen have scored a bucketful of runs, the bowlers have perhaps been the bigger heroes, restricting opposition line-ups in batsman-friendly conditions.Dale Steyn has had a wretched series against Australia so far, conceding 198 runs in 27 overs (economy rate 7.33), but he has a stellar record in home ODIs during this period, taking 36 wickets in 22 games at an economy rate of 4.51. In all but six of those matches he has gone at under 5.50 an over. Imran Tahir has been superb in the middle overs, going at 4.87 per over while taking 19 wickets at 28.63. All the eight top wicket-takers during this period have strike rates of fewer than 33 balls per wicket, and have gone at less than 5.50 per over. Those numbers have had a huge role to play in South Africas outstanding home record over the last five years. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
