Former Syracuse star Griffin joins Dayton basketball staff

New Dayton Flyers head coach Archie Miller is continuing to reshape the coaching staff.

The newest member is 32-year-old Allen Griffin, who has 11 years experience in Division I basketball, including four seasons as a standout point guard at Syracuse University under Jim Boeheim.

His responsibilities over the years included recruiting, on-court coaching, travel planning, scheduling, game preperation and assisting in monitoring academics.

Griffin captained the Orangemen as a senior in 2000-01, when he averaged 10.8 points and 6.5 assists, ranking seventh all-time in school history for assists in a season. He had 409 assists in his career. Griffin played 133 games for the Orangemen and was a part of four NCAA Tournament teams. His Syracuse teams combined for a 98-36 record in that span, a .731 winning percentage.

After graduating from Syracuse in 2001, Griffin played professionally in Slovenia for a year, and worked as a teacher and girls basketball coach at Christian Brothers Academy for one season. In 2003, he returned to Syracuse to work on Boeheim’s staff as an administrative assistant. After two years in that position, he took an assistant coaching position at St. Francis (NY) for the 2005-06 season.

Following his first year at St. Francis, Griffin coached at Providence for two seasons before returning to St. Francis for another two years. Last year, he coached at Hofstra under former Flyer assistant coach Mo Cassara, helping the Dutchmen to a 21-12 record and a return to the post season.

Griffin and his wife, Tiffany, have two sons, Allen Jr. and Trey.

Reds beat Cardinals 7-2; wins series and takes first place

MEGASPORTSNEWS.com GAME COVERAGE

CINCINNATI, OHIO – When the Civil Rights Weekend series between the St. Louis Cardinals and  Cincinnati Reds began, most of us in the media were looking at the pitchers the Cardinals would throw to assess the Reds chances. Jaime Garcia was throwing on Friday; we figured the Reds would beat him, but they didn’t. We figured there goes the chance of at least winning one game in the series. Adam Wainwright was pitching next on Saturday and everybody said “not a chance.” However, the Reds were 2-2 against him and they beat him 4-3. Then comes the rubber game on Sunday and its Brad Penny who was 7-3 against Cincinnati overall and better yet, 5-0 at Great American Ballpark since the place opened and the feeling was “1 of 2 isn’t bad.” We 2-of-3 is good for the Reds because they beat Brad Penny. Penny was throwing pitchers between 93-100 mph, but he wasn’t fooling the Reds on anything. They hit any pitch he could no matter the speed.

Scott Rolen homered and drove in three runs and Bronson Arroyo pitched a complete game and drove home two more runs on Sunday leading Cincinnati to a 7-2 win that ended the Cardinals long domination as the NL Central Division’s top and dominant team.

St. Louis had been in first place since July 31, 2009. The defending champions had opened a five-game lead on the Reds before going into a profound slump in the last two weeks, losing nine of their last 12 and even went 9 games without hitting a home run.

The Reds keep a National League standings pole on top of the right field bleachers of each of the divisions: East, West and Central. It changes each day. After Sunday’s last out, a fly ball to Jay Bruce in right field, the public address announcer at Great American Ballpark told those in atterndance, a rain-soaked crowd of 26,712 to look to the Central Division standings poll to see that the Reds were on top by a half-game over St. Louis by winning 7 of their last 8 games.

Cincinnati hasn’t been in first place this deep into a season since June 8, 2006.

The move into first place is a long-awaited moment for the Reds, who are trying to break a nine-year losing streak. They improved to a 2010 season-high five games over .500 at 21-16 by beating the Cardinals at their own brand of baseball: balanced offense, great defense and solid pitching.

During this eight-game turnaround for the Reds, the pitching staff has a 1.88 earned run average. They haven’t committed an error in their last 11 games, the best streak since 1997. And they’re leading the majors in getting runners from first to third with a single.
