BeRecruited partners with Hi-Rez Studios for collegiate esports recruitment

first_imgSports recruiting company BeRecruited has announced a partnership with Hi-Rez Studios to give resources to high school students interested in playing Paladins or SMITE at a collegiate level.Earlier this year BeRecruited became the official recruiting partner of the National Association of Collegiate Esports, a member-driven nonprofit organization that develops esports programs at collegiate institutions around the country. Just last month the NACE announced its partnership with Hi-Rez as well to establish varsity programs in Paladins and SMITE for members of the association. The NACE also partners with resources involved in esports at a younger level like the High School Esports League, Gamer Sensei, The National Junior College Athletic Association and Twitch Student. Caedmon Patalano, General Manager of BeRecruited said: “There are currently about 83 college esports programs in the U.S. and the National Association of Collegiate Esports member schools offering varsity competitions for SMITE and Paladins. It’s exciting to see new doors to higher education opening up for gamers and we’re looking forward to helping SMITE and Paladins players find their way on to a collegiate esports team.”The collegiate esports scene is vastly growing with institutions establishing varsity teams, joining the NACE, offering scholarships and some even offering degrees in esports like Becker College.Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios Chief Operating Officer told Esports Insider: “The college esports landscape is exploding, with more than 80 college varsity programs and thousands of club-level programs. But I hear from campus leaders that they struggle to identify and recruit talent because there is no central database.  BeRecruited pioneered digital recruiting for traditional sports and we’re excited to support them as they expand into esports with Smite and Paladins and other titles”.  “We recognized early on that as a publisher we can play an important role in the success of esports in the college space. Our partnership with BeRecruited is critical because it allows us to connect players and college coaches in a mutually beneficial way, so the path to college for our players will be similar to that of a traditional collegiate esports athlete.”Esports Insider says: BeRecruited entering esports, in general, will be a welcoming tool for high school players interested in the collegiate scene. This further partnership with Hi-Rez Studios not only brings legitimacy to the platform but will open up new opportunities for students. We will certainly keep our eyes on the talent pool coming from BeRecruited.Sign up to our newsletter!last_img read more

Jazz get hot from 3-point range with Crowder, Korver and Ingles leading the way

first_img Brad Rock: Jazz are where they were last December — but why wait for a January surge? Utah Jazz’s defense saves the day in win over Golden State Three takeaways from Jazz’s 108-103 win over Golden State Kevin Durant, Steve Kerr confident that Utah Jazz can turn around season despite slow start Related Former Jazzman Jonas Jerebko feels ‘100 percent’ rejuvenated in new role with Warriors SALT LAKE CITY — Jae Crowder has been struggling with his 3-point shooting lately. Heck, the whole Jazz team has been struggling from 3-point range for the past couple of weeks.Crowder had only made 11 of his last 32 from long range over the past six games, while the Jazz, aside from one good game against Miami, had shot just 27 percent from behind the arc in the past half dozen games.But Wednesday night, the Jazz, ranked 25th in the NBA in 3-point shooting, outshot Golden State, the No. 1 3-point shooting team in the league, which was a big reason the Jazz came away with a 108-103 victory over the defending world champs Wednesday night at Vivint Arena.It wasn’t like the Jazz shot lights out as they finished making 16 of 42 from long range. However, it was much better than the Warriors’ 10 of 31, which included a 2-of-7 night from Kevin Durant and an 0-for-4 game by Klay Thompson.Crowder was especially good as he sank 5 of 9 3-point shots and he had nice help from Kyle Korver, who made 4 of 7 and Joe Ingles who went 4 for 9. Those three finished and even 50 percent, making 13 of 26, counteracting the rough nights for Donovan Mitchell (2 for 11), Ricky Rubio (0 for 2) and Derrick Favors (0 for 2).As far as Jazz coach Quin Snyder was concerned, it was just a matter of time before the shots started falling.“We’ve been really focused on our defense and felt at some point guys are going to make some shots to go with that,” Snyder said. “When you’re able to hit a few shots and see the ball go in it gives you a lift. We didn’t squander that lift because we kept defending and those guys got good looks. They were aggressive, ready to shoot and spaced the right way and we found them.”The key stretch of the game came midway through the third quarter when the score was tied 66-66. Crowder, Korver and Ingles hit 3-pointers on consecutive trips down the floor giving the Jazz the lead and then Crowder followed with a three from the right angle. Korver then sank one from the left angle and Crowder hit another from the top to give the Jazz an 84-78 lead.Crowder shrugged off his 3-point shooting display afterward, saying, “I got confidence because I work very hard on my craft and stay in the gym. I feel like my teammates have a lot of confidence in me because they know how hard I work. I felt like the flow of the game really got us open and gave us some open looks.”Like Crowder, Korver had been inconsistent lately with a couple of 1-for-7 3-point shooting games this month, but he looked much more confident Wednesday.“We made some shots — we made some threes tonight, which helped a lot,” Korver said. “I think there was a great energy tonight when we were making shots and the crowd was getting into it and we fed off that.”last_img read more

Conte urges Chelsea to seek win at Old Trafford

first_imgPremier League leaders Chelsea cannot afford to become complacent during the title run-in and must target victories to stay clear at the top, manager Antonio Conte said ahead of his side’s trip to Manchester United on Sunday.Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday helped them maintain a seven-point lead over second-placed Tottenham Hotspur but the latter’s run of six consecutive wins has put the leaders under increasing pressure to pick up points.“It’s important now in every game to try and take three points, including at Old Trafford. We know this game will be very tough but we are in good form and the players have the right confidence,” Conte told British media.Conte believes Tottenham have an easier game this weekend as they host 15th-placed Bournemouth and the Italian also knows that fifth-placed United will be keen to prove they can both beat the leaders and keep up their fight for a top-four spot.“If you compare these two games – we face United away and Tottenham face Bournemouth at home – I think that it’s easier for Tottenham to take points in their home stadium,” Conte said.“I think Manchester United for sure will have good motivation because they are playing against Chelsea… We know our schedule is not easy.“We are having a good season but we want it to become a great season. To become a great season and to write history you must win.”Chelsea have beaten United twice this season with a 4-0 win at Stamford Bridge in October and a 1-0 win in an FA Cup quarter-final last month but last won a league game at Old Trafford in 2013.last_img read more
