The company maintains a positive market outlook for 2018 and 2019, with all the main fundamentals pointing in the right direction’“It is difficult to forecast the exact timing of the recovery but, as our peers and segment analysts, I am firmly convinced the product tanker market is finally heading towards a positive cycle. In fact, all the fundamentals are pointing in the right direction, with all the variables aligned for rate improvements. In particular, a strong oil consumption is expected for 2018, also on the back of the estimated growth in global economic activity. This will obviously contribute to a more robust demand for the seaborne transportation of refined products,” Marco Fiori, Chief Executive Officer of d’Amico International Shipping, said.Furthermore, the high level of product inventories, which has been depressing demand for the last two years, seems to be finally coming to a more manageable level.In addition, the net fleet growth is expected to be 2.1 pct for 2018 and 1.7 pct for 2019, among the lowest growth rates in 15 years.Since the beginning of this year, the company took delivery of a product tanker newbuilding, M/T Cielo di Rotterdam, built by Hyundai Vinashin Shipyard, as part of its series of 22-strong Eco-design newbuilding program.Four ships remain to be delivered to DIS from the series. In February 2018, the company agreed with Hyundai Mipo Dockyard to take the delivery of one vessel in January 2018, two vessels in July 2018 and the last two vessels in January 2019.“By January 2019, DIS will have completed its long-term investment plan and will position itself on the market with one of the youngest and most versatile product tanker fleets, to meet the requirements of our top-quality customer base,” Fiori added. Product tanker owner and operator d’Amico International Shipping S.A ended the year in the red amid challenging market conditions.The company reported a net loss of USD 38.1 million for 2017 or USD 27.2 million excluding an impairment registered on three vessels held for sale in 2018.The loss more than doubled when compared to the figures reported for 2016 when the full-year loss came at USD 12.8 million.Rates were weak in 2017 for product tankers as the market was depressed by still high global product inventories, low trading activity and supply disruptions in the Atlantic during the hurricane season, the company explained.DIS’ daily spot rate was USD 12,026 in the full-year 2017 vs. 13,302 in the full-year 2016.

New UW goaltender Brett Bennett played at Boston University for two years before spending a year in junior hockey.[/media-credit]Anytime an athlete transfers to another school, there are inevitable questions. For Wisconsin goaltender Brett Bennett, there is one particular situation that tends to be brought up.“BU?” Bennett asked with a laugh.Exactly. Bennett played hockey for two years at Boston University before leaving the school following the 2007-08 season. He wouldn’t go into details about his departure, but said he didn’t regret the time he spent there.“I went there for two years. I was fortunate enough to be recruited there and [be] starting goalie there. I enjoyed it a lot, I liked the program, I liked the coaching staff, I liked my teammates,” Bennett said. “Unfortunately, it didn’t work out and I found myself here now. But it was a good situation, a good learning experience, and I’m glad I’m here.”Bennett, a junior in his first year at UW, played a season with the Indiana Ice of the United States Hockey League (USHL) after leaving Boston University. For Wisconsin head coach Mike Eaves, whatever happened in Boston would stay in Boston.“Something happened there out in Boston, I don’t know exactly what it was. But he ended up leaving,” Eaves said. “Our biggest concern — we didn’t go back and track what happened — we wanted to know what kind of young man he was when he was in Indy. Was he a good teammate? Was he a good guy? Could he be a good team leader? Those were the things that concerned us.“What happened before was in history; we wanted to know who the current young man was.”Currently, Bennett shares starting goaltending duties with Scott Gudmandson and is fresh off an April championship run with the Ice. His move from BU to Indiana is peculiar, as the USHL is a junior hockey league, though it is considered the top junior league in the country.Junior hockey comprises a number of mostly amateur leagues and is used as a developmental league for 16- to 20-year olds. Most players move from high school to juniors and then to the NCAA. UW forward Patrick Johnson played a season in Nebraska for the Lincoln Stars of the USHL before coming to Wisconsin and said it would have been awkward to go from college back to the juniors.“It’d be challenging, it’d be very challenging. You’d have a lot of questions thrown at you, why are you doing it, what happened, and all that,” he said. “[Bennett has] had a good attitude, he’s fought through it. I don’t know the situation with him, but he’s fought through. He’s here now, and he’s done really well.”Despite the rarity of his situation, Bennett decided to play juniors to try to find another college to recruit him. Eaves said UW started scouting him in mid-November of last year, once the need for a goaltender arose. He finished the season first-team All-USHL, going 35-17-4 with a 2.59 goals against average, in addition to helping the Ice capture the Clark Cup. After fielding offers from a number of schools, Bennett chose to sign with Wisconsin this past April.“UW just, I mean, just look at the rink here. It’s unreal,” he said. “The campus is great, everyone you talk to is like, ‘Oh, it’s a big-time program, coach Eaves is highly regarded coach.’ I was lucky enough to play for coach Parker at BU, who was another highly regarded coach. You take lessons from those guys, and it’s pretty cool to play in front of 15,000 every night.”Despite the lower overall level of competition in junior hockey compared to the NCAA, Bennett and Johnson agree the only real difference is physical strength, as most guys playing juniors are younger than college players.“A lot of the guys here [are] a little bit stronger because of some of the conditioning that we do and all that,” Johnson said. “The game is just a little bit faster. Other than that, the puck moves just as fast.”“Size and strength, guys are younger, they’re not as strong. USHL, all those guys come here and play college and usually are big-impact players,” Bennett said.For Eaves, talks with Indiana Ice coach Jeff Blashill helped convince him that Bennett would be a good fit. And regardless of what league he was playing in, Bennett’s performance on the ice was evidence that he could transition back to the NCAA.“The fact that he helped his team win a championship said his play was at a high level,” Eaves said. “He was one of the reasons they were successful, so that was part of our decision as well, knowing that he was keeping his play at a high level.”Johnson agreed.“A championship is a championship,” he said. “It’s a team concept, and if you can get that team concept going in the middle of the year toward the end of the year, anything can happen.”While his road to Madison had a few detours, Bennett thinks the journey was beneficial in the long-run. He hopes to have brought some of the experience and fortune his Indiana team found this year back with him to UW.“Once you win a championship, you look back and you [think], ‘What did this team have? What made us so special? Why did we win?’ and you kind of take something from that,” Bennett said. “You can’t even explain it, it’s just something that’s in the locker room and you just feel it. … That feeling, hopefully we can carry it over to Wisconsin and try to win a championship here.”
2. Make centers either play screens or sit on the benchGoing off the above note on Dayton’s small lineup, Flyers’ 6-foot-11 center Steve McElvene is the first off the bench and plays 18.3 minutes per game. Since Tyler Lydon is usually on the court at the end of games, Syracuse runs a four-around-one offense (with four perimeter players, including Lydon, and a big man in the paint) with either Tyler Roberson or Dajuan Coleman in the middle. If Dayton decides to play a “traditional” rim-protecting center at the end of games, the Orange needs to put Roberson or Coleman in dribble hand-off situations to force the opposing center to expose himself away from the basket or sag off and give up and open jump shot to the ball-handler. Luke Rafferty | Senior Staff Photographer Published on March 15, 2016 at 9:18 am When asked Sunday to assess his team, currently losers of five of its last six games heading into the Tournament, Boeheim sung Cooney’s tune. He pointed to a close road loss at top-seeded North Carolina, the fact that Syracuse was tied late at Louisville and a close road loss at Florida State to end the regular season, to say that the Orange’s current slide isn’t cause for worry.“We have maybe one bad loss, but all our losses were close games,” Cooney said after SU was selected to the Tournament field on Sunday. “We were in every single game and not many teams in the country can say that. I think that says a lot about us.”Surely Cooney wasn’t suggesting that he wants simply being in games to fully define his team, even if that’s a big part of its profile to date. Because now it’s really crunch time and the only thing a close loss can bring is the offseason.Jesse Dougherty is a Senior Staff Writer at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or @dougherty_jesse. Comments The Flyers, for example, can switch ball screens and handoffs at every position when Pollard and Dyshawn Pierre (also 6-foot-6) are their tallest players. But Dayton, like all teams that have played Syracuse’s screen-heavy offense like this, won’t switch screens when McElvene is guarding the screener. With that, a way to get good shots late in games is to attack that center as much as possible by using Coleman or Roberson away from the rim, and teams will either risk yielding open shots or have to bench their biggest guy. If the latter happens, SU won’t be able to use this wrinkle. But it would become much easier to control the paint on both the offensive and defensive end.3. Don’t be afraid to go really small (at least until it doesn’t work)To erase a late 12-point deficit in the Orange’s loss to Pittsburgh last Wednesday, Boeheim rolled out a lineup of freshman point guard Frank Howard, Gbinije, Richardson and Lydon, with Coleman and Roberson trading minutes. It was extremely effective — because of a well-oiled full-court press and Howard’s ability to penetrate Pittsburgh’s high-pressure man-to-man defense — and it seems that keeping Trevor Cooney in instead of one of the three big men could form an offensive juggernaut late in games. Even if Cooney isn’t shooting particularly well, his presence on the court eliminates a help defender and creates more space for Howard to create and Gbinije and Richardson to attack closing-out defenders. Yes, SU has often been hurt inside this season. But giving this lineup a try if the offense stalls late could be a low-risk (because you can always change it up at the next whistle), high-reward move.MORE COVERAGE:Roundtable: Dayton rematch, what SU needs to do to win and Cooney’s legacy3 things Jim Boeheim said at his Selection Sunday press conferenceBreaking down the Syracuse-Dayton matchup Liam Sheehan | Asst. Photo Editor Related Stories VIDEO: Syracuse erupts in team room after receiving NCAA Tournament bid3 things Jim Boeheim said at his Selection Sunday press conferenceSyracuse basketball roundtable: Dayton rematch, what SU needs to do to win and Trevor Cooney’s legacy Facebook Twitter Google+ Let’s rewind six days — before leaked brackets and the longest two hours in college basketball history — to a situation that Syracuse and its fans either have or will pretend to have already forgotten.Trevor Cooney, some 20 minutes prior, missed a fairly open 3 that would have surely made Syracuse an NCAA Tournament team. Instead, the Orange lost to Pittsburgh for the third time this season and Cooney was asked to make his case to the NCAA selection committee to give SU an at-large bid.He paused. He didn’t take his eyes off the floor of the Verizon Center locker room. He nearly whispered his answer, and the small crowd of reporters pushed their recorders and microphones close to his mouth to have any chance at picking it up.“I mean if you look at our schedule, we played a tough schedule and we were in every single game that we played,” Cooney said. “A lot of teams, good teams, got blown out a couple times this year, and we were in every single game. We don’t have any … the losses that we have, I mean we have a couple bad ones, but they are all close games.”On Sunday, Syracuse (19-13, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) was tabbed as a No. 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament’s Midwest region and will face seventh-seeded Dayton (25-7, 14-4 Atlantic 10) in St. Louis. Joe Castiglione, the chair of the NCAA’s selection committee, unsurprisingly cited “quality wins” over Connecticut, Texas A&M, Duke and Notre Dame, when asked how the Orange snuck into the Big Dance. But it’s hard to imagine Cooney’s elevator pitch — that SU competed to the end, or very close to it, of every game this season — not being part of what drew the committee to Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textYet once the Orange tips off with the Flyers at 12:15 p.m. on Friday, the fact that it “competes” in every game can no longer help unless it does the only thing that matters this time of year: Finish and win.“You just do it, I don’t know how to explain it,” said Michael Gbinije back in January when asked what SU needed to improve on to finish games better. “It’s the kind of thing you only explain by doing.”And because Syracuse has also been struggling to answer that question for most of this season, here are three things that could help the Orange finish games (with Dayton at the forefront of the discussion). These “suggestions” are geared toward the SU offense because Jim Boeheim has more regularly pointed to the offense when games have escaped his team. They are based on season-long observations, and sporadic conversations with players and coaches.1. Tirelessly work the ball to Malachi RichardsonA lot of Syracuse’s late-game struggles have been rooted in poor perimeter shooting, and freshman swingman Malachi Richardson is both a culprit and solution. Gbinije has been the Orange’s best offensive option all season, but Richardson has the fastest first step on the team and is most capable of going off the dribble when SU isn’t making its 3s. He also has Syracuse’s second highest free-throw rate — Kenpom.com’s way of measuring how often a player gets to the foul line — and high-percentage scoring opportunities at the stripe are crucial in crunch time. Lastly, Dayton head coach Archie Miller favors a lineup with 6-foot-6 Kendall Pollard as his center, and that will make it so the Flyers can switch all ball screens and make it hard for all of SU’s perimeter players to get to the rim. If that is the case Friday, Richardson will have the best chance to find the cracks in Dayton’s tight man-to-man defense.
For the second consecutive season, Syracuse will host Eastern Michigan, Dec. 27, SU Athletics announced Thursday afternoon.The Orange owns a 4-1 record against EMU, which lost in the Carrier Dome, 105-57, on Dec. 19 of last year. Eight Syracuse players scored in double digits, led by then-freshman guard Tyus Battle, who tallied 18 points off the bench.Two days later, SU suffered its worst loss in Dome history, a 93-60 embarrassment to St. John’s that, many experts said, may have contributed to SU missing the 2017 NCAA Tournament.EMU last beat SU, 68-65, on Dec. 14, 1996, and its head coach Rob Murphy, a former assistant at SU, enters his seventh season at the helm of a team that finished 16-17 last season. Syracuse finished last year 19-15 and lost in the second round of the NIT.On Wednesday, SU announced the Orange will play St. Bonaventure five days earlier, Dec. 22.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHere’s the Orange’s nonconference schedule:Friday, Nov. 10: CornellFriday/Saturday, Nov. 17/18: Texas SouthernMonday, Nov. 20: OaklandWednesday, Nov. 22: ToledoSaturday, Dec. 2: Kansas (at American Airlines Arena, in Miami)Tuesday, Dec. 5: Connecticut (at Madison Square Garden)Tuesday, Dec. 19: BuffaloFriday, Dec. 22: St. BonaventureTBD: Big Ten/ACC Challenge vs. MarylandWednesday, Dec. 27: Eastern Michigan Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on June 22, 2017 at 3:30 pm Contact Matthew: email@example.com | @MatthewGut21
