    RIO DE JANEIRO -- In a scouting booth high above the court, his fingers flying across the keyboard a mile a minute, Joe Trinsey punches in every touch of every point in an Olympic womens volleyball match between Argentina and South Korea.Before the nights first serve, the Americans technical coordinator skips down a few stairs and adjusts a tiny camera that gives him the match feed on his laptop. He slaps hands with Chinas technical chief, Lingxi Yuan.Trinsey can rewind the match as needed. Its not.Just on the very slight possibility I miss anything -- very slight, he said with a smile between points.Do not even consider challenging this gum-chomping, knuckle-cracking number genius to a type-off. Hes the smartest guy most everybody with the program has ever met.Its like Moneyball, setter Courtney Thompson said of the baseball book based on the Oakland Athletics analytics-focused approach. When Joe tells us were going to get three, five, seven extra points a match off of this, its so motivating to us because hes so smart. When Joe says something, we all listen.The American women, who were chasing their first Olympic gold before Thursdays heartbreaking five-set semifinal defeat to Serbia, will play for bronze on Saturday against the Netherlands. Coach Karch Kiraly has embraced volleyball analytics the way baseball has turned to sabermetric measurements to evaluate players.Joe is the man -- 10 steps ahead of the rest of the world, assistant coach Tom Black said.Library of Congress, is how U.S. consultant Marv Dunphy, the 1988 gold-medal winning coach, refers to him.After each tournament, Trinsey pulls all-nighters evaluating each play -- there might be upward of 200 plays in a single match -- and turns over that information in 48 hours so Kiraly can begin presenting the data to his players.At the conclusion of last months Grand Prix, Kiraly sent an individual email to each woman breaking down her serve. The basic findings: serving to space, away from an opposing passer, is far more effective than serving right at someone.Its hardly that simple when Trinsey studies the tactic intently, yet thats how he presents such information to avoid making things too complicated.When Kiraly took over as coach for this four-year Olympic cycle, Trinsey offered to be janitor, a volunteer, to shag balls again -- any possible task needed. He had been retrieving balls during training and helping out as a volunteer assistant for the London Olympics. It took about six months once the rest of the staff was set, and Trinsey had landed a real, paying position from Kiraly.Karch could see I was grinding, Trinsey said, just logging long hours in the gym and doing the grunt work.And learning. Everywhere he possibly could.Once, in 2011, he decided to visit the strong University of Washington womens team during spring practices, paying $50 to sleep on a college students couch for a week.Again much like baseball scouting, the Americans relied on radar guns during the London Olympics to track serve speeds then ultimately figured out that didnt help one bit.Now, its more of a three-pronged philosophy to helping players improve: studying the game as a whole and evaluating trends, while knowing the fine details of every opponent. And then theres the teaching component: The U.S. players must be able to execute the material they are receiving.With everything, you want to look through the lens of How can we teach our players better? Trinsey said. We dont want the players to be mathematicians. We want to boil it down to one to three things they can work on.Going from volunteer gigs at Pepperdine -- working with Dunphy and U.S. assistant womens coach David Hunt -- and Loyola Marymount with Black, Trinsey ran some camps to keep the lights on. He moved out West from Delaware to chase this volleyball dream that mixes his coaching and playing background with his razor-sharp brain. A Division III All-American as a player, Trinsey received a degree in applied mathematics from New Jerseys Stevens Institute of Technology 2009.It was a risk in one sense, he said of heading to California with no guarantee of a steady job.The U.S. players are thrilled he landed with them.Everything he does is absolutely worthwhile, setter Alisha Glass said. As humans we err. We err in terms of perspective, we maybe dont have the right view. Just looking at the numbers, the numbers speak for themselves. <a href="">Cheap Jonathan Villar Jersey</a>. Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. <a href="">Cheap Eric Thames Jersey</a>. Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. <a href=""></a>. Now, correct me if Im wrong but I saw one official distinctly pointing at the net indicating a good goal but after an inconclusive review they overturned the goal. Shouldnt the ruling on the ice (good goal) stand after an inconclusive review? Why was this overturned? James Veaudry Pembroke, ON -- Hey Kerry, Youll get a lot of these, but why was the Montreal goal against Nashville Saturday night overturned? Eller puts the puck on net and the on ice ruling from the ref behind the net is a Montreal goal. <a href="">Cheap Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys</a>.

PAUL, Minn. ASHBURN, Va. -- Fending off questions about Washingtons worst-in-the-NFL third down defense, Redskins defensive coordinator Joe Barry brought the subject back to the basics.The bottom line is points, he said.Give up fewer points than you score is the name of the game, Barry contended, and his defense has been able to do that in the most crucial situations this season. Six out of seven times the Redskins kept an opponent from taking the lead late in the fourth quarter or overtime, a major reason theyre still in the playoff race with three games left.Coach Jay Gruden preachesmaster the situation all the time, linebacker Mason Foster said. He challenges us each and every week to master the situations and when we do a good job at it, we usually get the W. When we mess it up or break down in those situations we usually lose. ... We know what it takes.With a showdown against Cam Newton and the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers (5-8) on Monday night, the Redskins (7-5-1) would like to improve their defense on third down, which now ranks 31st in the league, and in the red zone, which is 29th. Those are situations Gruden and Barry would also love to master.But late-game stops have become a hallmark of Washingtons defense, which faltered only in a loss to Detroit when Barry and the coaching staff rushed three against Matt Stafford and the Lions. The defense held in twice tie against the Cincinnati Bengals and once each in victories over the New York Giants, Baltimore Ravens, Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.Questions about the defense getting the necessary stop were so pointed that some wondered if running back Chris Thompson shouldve taken a knee at the 1-yard line Sunday in Philadelphia to run out the clock rather than scoring a touchdown and putting the Eagles offense back on the field. Carson Wentz led the beginnings of a game-winning drive before a sack fumble by linebacker Ryan Kerrigan as the Redskins showed once again they could deliver with the game on thhe line.ddddddddddddThey played good when it mattered and thats important, Gruden said. Overall our defense hung in there, stuck with the plan and made plays when they had to.Players said the message in the huddle late in the Eagles game was about personal responsibility. The already-depleted defense was missing linebackers Will Compton (knee) and Sua Cravens (elbow) and safety Will Blackmon (concussion), who could be out again Monday against Carolina.Cornerback Josh Norman, who was an All-Pro last year with the Panthers, wants the Redskins to display an edge in late-game situations.At the end of the day you just got to have thatwant to in you, Norman said. When a guy crosses your face and you tell him that, `Youre not going to beat me and if he does, theres going to be a problem. If you do get a penalty for being aggressive, at least it was an aggressive penalty. It wasnt like they dont run over you. No, smack them in the mouth.Smacking the ball out of opponents hands has been a strength of the defense, which ranks sixth with 22 forced fumbles. Only recovering seven before Kerrigans game-saving play was a point of contention, especially as Gruden pointed to a lack of forcing turnovers as a reason for back-to-back losses at Dallas and Arizona.Even those were decided by one score, which 10 of the Redskins 13 games have been. Thats the epitome of situational football for a defense thats accustomed to things being close down to the wire.Our team has been in all types of game situations where we have to come back as an offense or make a stop on defense, defensive end Chris Baker said. It does help our confidence, but we would like to try to blow a team out every now and then so that it is not so stressful for us.---AP Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia contributed.---For more NFL coverage: and Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
