first_imgPalm Beach County’s teachers union is asking the school district to keep campuses closed to students when the academic year begins in August.They say that a return to in-person schooling is “a dangerous gamble” with coronavirus cases increasing here.In a letter to district leaders, teachers union President Justin Katz said on Friday that the recent spike in infections makes it nearly impossible to guarantee a safe return, despite social distancing measures.“The dangerous trajectory of COVID-19 cases in Florida has led us to believe that (in-person schooling) should still be offered, but not until a point in time when the on-campus option can be executed in a safe and responsible manner,” Katz wrote. “We no longer believe that is possible at this time.”Katz calls on the school board to “limit instruction to virtual means with no on-campus activity with students until such time that the medical and scientific community are able to convey that it is safe to do so.”The district has been planning to start school Aug. 10.However, the union represents 12,500 teachers, counselors and other educators. Many of those individuals are 60 or older, placing them at greater risk from COVID-19.Tune in tonight for a Virtual Town Hall meeting to hear more about reopening options for this upcoming school year. Please submit questions to the regional offices in advance: https://t.co/Ixha7v9nJ6 pic.twitter.com/mt9Ih3ka6n— PBCSD (@pbcsd) June 25, 2020 District officials said Saturday that the union’s concerns will “receive serious consideration,” although they added that they are surveying parents and their own employees to help with the decision.“It’s important to remember that final decisions that the District will make will be based on a variety of factors including financial, legal, health and other requirements that the District must meet in the best interests of all students, staff and community members,” the district said in a statement.District leaders are still developing school-reopening plans, but intend for students to have an option to learn completely from home or take in-person classes in some form.The school board’s longest serving member, Debra Robinson, has called for delaying the beginning of the school year.A majority of board members said they are open to exploring that proposal.While saying it is theoretically possible that new cases could decline significantly in the six weeks before classes resume, Katz expressed doubt that would happen with enough time to prepare teachers and students for in-person classes on the first day.“We seem to be back on the wrong side of the curve,” he said, referring to recent jumps in the number of coronavirus infections in Palm Beach County and statewide, “and worse off than before.”last_img read more

Eight of his 12 rebounds were offensive, and 10 of his 15 points came on second-chance opportunities.“It’s funny,” SU interim head coach Mike Hopkins said after the game. “When Tyler focuses on rebounding, he seems to score.”And according to advanced statistics from Hoop-Math, Hopkins is spot on. By the numbers, Roberson has been the most effective second-chance scorer in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season. Hoop-Math defines a “putback” as a made shot that is taken within four seconds of grabbing an offensive rebound, and Roberson is at the top of the conference in that category.Below is a list of the players with the most putbacks on all 15 ACC teams, with their field-goal percentage on putbacks at the rim in parentheses. You’ll see that Roberson is not only tied for the most putbacks in the conference, but that he’s also converting at the highest rate around the basket among players with 20.1. Tyler Roberson (Syracuse) — 20 putbacks (83.3 percent)2. Charles Mitchell (Georgia Tech) — 20 putbacks (73.3 percent)3. Zach LeDay (Virginia Tech) — 20 putbacks (50 percent)4. Brice Johnson (North Carolina) — 15 putbacks (100 percent)5. Zach Auguste (Notre Dame) — 15 putbacks (50 percent)6. Abdul-Malik Abu (North Carolina State) — 15 putbacks (46.2 percent)7. Devin Thomas (Wake Forest) — 14 putbacks (57.1 percent)8. Chinanu Onuaku (Louisville) — 13 putbacks (62.5 percent)9. Anthony Gill (Virginia) — 10 putbacks (80 percent)10. Amile Jefferson (Duke) — 10 putbacks (66.7 percent)11. Terance Mann (Florida State) — 10 putbacks (50 percent)12. Jaron Blossomgame (Clemson) — 9 putbacks (33.3 percent)13. Tonye Jekiri (Miami) — 7 putbacks (66.7 percent)14. Rafael Maia (Pittsburgh) — 6 putbacks (60 percent)15. Johncarlos Reyes (Boston College) —5 putbacks (80 percent)AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhy Roberson’s “Putback” numbers are more impressive than Brice Johnson’sIt may be a bit confusing that I am calling Tyler Roberson the most effective second-chance scorer in the ACC while Johnson has a 100 percent conversion rate at the rim. But there are two factors at play here, one based in logic and the other in strategy.First, with 20 putbacks and a 83.3 percent conversion rate around the rim (Roberson hasn’t attempted any putbacks away from the rim), he has accounted for 40 points on putbacks. Johnson has attempted a few putbacks away from the rim, but none of them have come from 3-point territory, so he’s accounted for 30 points on putbacks.Second, Johnson plays with one of the best low-post threats in the country in Kennedy Meeks, which has an effect on his putbacks. Meeks often draws double teams in the post, which can leave Johnson alone on the weak side. This makes a good share of his second-chance opportunities uncontested, while Roberson doesn’t enjoy that luxury as often. That’s not to say that Dajuan Coleman, Tyler Lydon or Syracuse’s drivers haven’t drawn double teams this season, but being paired with a player of Meeks’ caliber only helps Johnson thrive around the rim.Why this matters for SyracuseIt has been well-documented that most of Syracuse’s offense is going to come from its 3-point shooting. According to Kenpom, 38.2 percent of the Orange’s total points have come on 3s this season, which is currently the 23rd highest rate in the country and highest among ACC teams. That makes Roberson’s ability to create scoring opportunities on the offensive glass particularly important, and his ability to convert at a high rate gives SU a valuable offensive complexion for a perimeter-oriented system.
