first_img“I think Florida is probably the better team, but if the ball bounces right, UCLA will win,” Tarkanian said. “If Florida is playing well, I don’t think anybody can beat them. But if Florida doesn’t play real well, and just plays real good, somebody can beat them.” Florida returned all its starters from a year ago, and many of the matchup issues that plagued UCLA a year ago still exist. The Bruins have no one who can individually match up with 6-foot-11 power forward Joakim Noah’s size and athleticism. Or with 6-9 wing Corey Brewer’s length. Or with the brute strength of 6-10, 245-pound center Al Horford, or his 6-9, 255-pound backup, Chris Richard. UCLA will use 6-5 Arron Afflalo on Brewer, who held Afflalo scoreless for the first 28minutes, 32seconds a year ago, and hope 6-8 power forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute can limit the inside-outside game of Noah, who dominated last season’s title game with 16points, nine rebounds and a NCAA title-game record sixblocks. Then there is Horford, averaging 13.2 points and 9.2rebounds per game, point guard Taurean Green, averaging a team-high 13.3 points per game, and 3-point specialist Lee Humphrey, who shoots 45.5percent from beyond the arc. “This is a team that shoots 53percent from the field, 40percent from 3,” UCLA coach Ben Howland said. “They shoot 59.8 percent inside the 3-point line. They hold their opponents to 40 percent from the field. They out-(rebound) them by seven boards a game. They lead the country in terms of margin of victory at over 17points a game. ATLANTA – NBA riches were waiting, but friendships, a fancy-free lifestyle and an opportunity for college basketball immortality brought them back. They were, by far, the most talented team in the nation, and by the time the Final Four arrived they were either loved or hated, with no in between. They were Jerry Tarkanian’s last great UNLV team. The Runnin’ Rebels were undefeated, flashy, arrogant, and beyond all the glitz, they were downright good … until Duke shocked everyone by rebounding from a 30-point loss in the title game a year ago to beat UNLV 79-77 in the 1991 national semifinals before defeating Kansas in the title game. It is an eerily similar situation facing defending champion Florida. Although the Gators are not undefeated, coaches agree they are the most talented team, they carry a level of arrogance, and are widely despised because of their favored status. Florida, the top seed in the NCAA Tournament, plays UCLA in today’s second NCAA Tournament Final Four matchup at the Georgia Dome. Yes, the same UCLA program embarrassed 73-57 in last year’s national title game by the Gators. “They’re an unbelievable shot-blocking team. They’re a team that employs a number of different defenses, primarily man-to-man. They have an outstanding bench. “So you’re talking about one of the best teams in college basketball in a long time, with everybody having returned with the experience of already having won a national championship. It’s a daunting task. It’s a huge challenge.” It puts UCLA, which has a record 11national championships, in the uncustomary role of underdog at the Final Four. “Everybody is pretty much doubting us just because they have all five (starters) returning and they’re the team to beat,” UCLA point guard Darren Collison said. “And that’s fine for us. We can’t get caught up in that hype.” Tarkanian said his team, which won the 1990 title and had Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, Greg Anthony and Anderson Hunt in 1991, was beaten as much by complacency as by Duke. The Blue Devils had Bobby Hurley, Grant Hill, Christian Laettner and Thomas Hill, but that still wasn’t expected to be an obstacle for a team on a 45-game winning streak, and twowins away from the first back-to-back national championships since John Wooden’s UCLA teams won seven straight from 1967-73. However, Tarkanian said regular-season road wins at Michigan State, Louisville and Arkansas played a factor in the loss to Duke. In each instance, Tarkanian said he warned his team about what a rigid test they were facing, and each time the game’s outcome was decided well before the final buzzer. “After a while, the kids don’t believe you as much,” Tarkanian said. “I didn’t want to play Duke. I was hoping they would get beat in the Elite Eight. I didn’t want to play Duke because we beat them so bad the year before.” Of course, the Gators weren’t about to admit complacency on the eve of its rematch with UCLA, but that has been the knock on them much of the season. And when Florida went through a four-game funk late in the season, losing on the road at Vanderbilt, LSU and Tennessee, concerns about Florida’s drive surfaced. “I can see (UCLA) coming out, playing a lot harder than they ever played before because it’s big,” Richard said. “Not only are they in the Final Four, but they’re playing against a team that beat them in the championship game. If we come ready to play like we can and should, I think we’ll be OK.” And one more thing: UNLV was widely considered the top seed in the tournament. Duke, like UCLA, was a No. 2 seed. “Every time you see UCLA play somebody, you come away and say how bad the other team played,” Tarkanian said. “I thought Pitt played bad against UCLA. Then I saw Kansas, and I thought Kansas played bad against UCLA. After a while you start thinking all these teams are playing bad against UCLA, and it’s because UCLA is doing something great.” (818) 713-3607160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_img0Shares0000KCB FC head coach Elvis Ayany is tossed up in the air by players and backroom staff after guiding the side back to the Kenyan Premier League. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 8 – Elvis Ayany was a KCB FC player in 2015 when they got relegated from the Kenyan Premier League but three years down the line, he has helped the team get promotion back to the top tier, though this time as the head coach.The bankers assured themselves of a slot in next year’s top league after beating FC Talanta 2-0 on Sunday cementing their hold on second spot with an eight-point buffer between them and third placed Nairobi Stima. “I was playing for KCB when we were relegated in 2015 and now I am thankful that I have helped the team gain promotion. It has been like a dream come true for me and I feel so proud of the players and the effort they gave,” the tactician told Capital Sport.The bankers have previously tried in vain in 2016 and 2017 to return to top flight but on both occasions, they failed to deliver, waning away on the final few weeks of the campaign.But this season, they prospered where they failed for the last two seasons, putting up a run of five wins on the trot to finally secure their place in top flight with a match to spare.“This season we did things differently. We took our last seven matches very seriously and we were not underrating any opponent. There was so much togetherness in the squad and cohesion was great. I think that is what made the difference for us,” the tactician noted.KCB FC players celebrate one of their two goals against FC Talanta during a National Super League match at the Camp Toyoyo Ground on October 7, 2018. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaHis sentiments were shared by skipper Bethwel Warambo who was part of the squad when they were relegated from the top tier and he says it was a huge relief for him to skipper the side back to the top tier.“The management sat with me after we were relegated and they convinced me to remain with the team. The plan they had was great and I decided to remain. I am glad that decision proved to be the right one and I am so glad that we have finally made it into the league,” the defender noted.He added; “Our focus is to get into the league and compete. We cannot afford to be relegated again and that is our first priority. We have a good team and the management has been behind us and we want to reward them with good performances.”Ayany has meanwhile said he is not in a hurry to draft the team’s strategy for the new season despite a short turnaround with the new campaign kicking off on December 8.“As at now we just want to celebrate the achievement and we will plan about the new season when the time is right. It is a short period but for us, it will just be like a continuation of the current season,” said the tactician who took over mid-season after the exit of John Kamau.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

It was an unforgiving ending to an otherwise impressive afternoon for Rappazzo, who twice denied Chaminade freshman Lauren Battung on breakaways, including one 10 minutes before Schoonover’s goal.

first_imgDonegal county councillor Michael Mac Giolla Easbuig has labelled the budget as a cynical one from a cynical government.Micheal Cholm Mac Giolla EasbuigHe said that having robbed us blind over the last four and a half years, they have dropped a few crumbs into our plates and with that they hope to buy the election.“They expect us to be grateful that they have given just a little back of what has been stolen from us and handed to the bankers and bondholders. “They expect us to forget that they have saddled us with huge debts which will take decades to pay off.“I am not impressed by the pale alternatives that have been offered by Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail. Today they said that they also would slavishly stick to terms of the so-called fiscal compact, the golden handcuffs imposed by Europe.”He said their argument against the Fine Gael/Labour coalition seems to the about the size of the crumbs we should get.“What we need instead is radical and fundamental economic change to decisively shift the balance of power away from the fatcats, the corporations and the rich, towards working people – and by that I mean those who have work and those forced out of work. “Let’s have a wealth tax. Raise corporation tax with no exemptions and no loopholes. Replace the so-called ‘Local Property Tax’, which is in reality a tax on our homes, with a real property tax which targets speculators who still own huge tracts of lands.“Let’s invest the huge amounts this would raise in fixing our health service, ending the housing crisis and properly financing our schools and local services.“We won’t get this alternative from any of the four mainstream parties.

first_img The NHL’s new rules, designed to open up the offensive game, have benefited no King more than Belanger, whose strong skating and puck handling is being rewarded because defensemen can no longer obstruct as easily. “I love the new rules; I think they’re going to be very good for me,” Belanger said. “It’s still the NHL, and it’s still hard out there, but it’s harder now for the defensemen and it’s easier to move the puck.” Belanger has two goals and three assists in eight games, including what was one of the best, jaw-dropping plays of the Kings’ young season, which he made in the second period Wednesday at Colorado. The Kings, who had trailed by three goals, pulled within 4-3 when Belanger chased down a loose puck in the corner of the Colorado zone and, in one motion, put the puck on his stick and whipped a pass through the crease and onto the stick of Sean Avery, who one-timed it for a goal from a tough angle. In part because of the depth among Kings forwards, Belanger remains firm in his role as the center of the Kings’ “energy” line. But even as roster spots were up for grabs in training camp last month, Belanger never had any reason to be concerned. “I think (coach) Andy (Murray) knows what I can bring to the table,” Belanger said. “I’m a guy who can play 16 or 18 minutes and over 82 games I’m not going to be great every night but I try to be consistent. I think that’s one of my strengths.” Winning combo: Craig Conroy and Pavol Demitra rarely played on the same line during their four-plus seasons together in St. Louis, but recently they have been giving the Kings’ opponents the blues. During Eric Belanger’s five seasons with the Kings, there isn’t much the team hasn’t asked him to do. He’s centered just about every line combination the Kings have thrown together. But not until this season have the Kings really seen all that Belanger can do. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week In the Kings’ last two games, Demitra totaled three goals and one assist and Conroy broke out of an early-season scoring slump with two goals and five assists. “Whenever you play with (Demitra) you know you’re going to get some chances, which is fun,” Conroy said. “(Earlier) we had a lot of chances but nothing was going in. Now they’re starting to go in.” Status report: Sean Avery (ankle sprain) will attempt to practice this morning but his status for Sunday is uncertain. The Kings had hoped Jeff Cowan (groin) might be able to play Sunday, but that now appears unlikely … Murray said he expects to start Mathieu Garon in goal Sunday against Calgary.

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week But much of what’s lacking in resources, students and faculty have made up for with resourcefulness. The most recent result of that resourcefulness is lights for the football field. During the summer, Vasquez athletic director Tim Jorgensen took out a personal loan to purchase used lighting equipment from Georgia Tech University through an online auction. Jorgensen rented a truck and drove the equipment back from Georgia in early July. Football players, their parents and volunteers from the community were up until midnight several nights digging ditches on the field so the lights would be ready for the Mustangs’ Sept. 3 home opener. The extraordinary measures the team’s players and coach took to make “Friday Night Lights” part of the Vasquez experience propelled the team to the best regular-season record in school history. ACTON – Amid the million-dollar ranch homes that dot the hills between the Antelope Valley and Santa Clarita, the sight of what appears to be a trailer park and an undersized plastic airplane hangar seems oddly out of place. Architectural incongruity is the most obvious hint that something isn’t quite right at Vasquez High School. Visit the small campus, and the clues pop out one after another. Looking for the cafeteria? The library? A usable gym? Even an activities room? Keep looking. At Vasquez, you’ll find none of those amenities that are fixtures in the American high school experience. Freelance Vasquez (7-2) will face Santa Fe League champion Salesian of Los Angeles in the first round of the Division XII playoffs. “When you walk out onto that field, something about it gives you another level of energy,” senior receiver/defensive back Casey Schlock said. “That’s what we worked for, that’s what so many people went to bat for us for. When you walk onto that field it sets you off and gets you ready to play football.” With about 600 students, 12-year-old Vasquez is about one-sixth the size of Highland High School or Palmdale High School. Vasquez is operated by a school district that has been in and out of financial trouble, the subject of a recall and other controversy since 1992, when citizens voted to secede from the Antelope Valley Union High School District so that Acton and Agua Dulce teens didn’t have to travel to Palmdale for high school. Vasquez High started classes in 1993 on the campus of High Desert School, and got its own campus of portable buildings in 1999. Three bond measures that would have brought funds to build permanent structures were defeated by voters. Vasquez is currently seeking the type of financial hardship assistance from the state that’s typically given to schools in low-income inner-city communities, not towns such as Acton. As a nonvoting student representative on the school board that’s been blamed for many of Vasquez’s woes, senior two-way lineman Mansur Ivie knows more than most of his peers about how local government works. Or to hear him tell it, doesn’t work. Opponents of the bond measures cited school board incompetence as the deciding factor in the board’s reluctance to fund future construction. Bond opponents said it’s not fair to blame the voters, rather than district officials, for Vasquez’s plight. “It’s easy to convince kids we’re the big bad wolves,” said resident Tana Lampton, who said Vasquez’s athletic director was wrong in arranging for the stadium lights on his own rather than going through the elected school board. Among the most glaring examples of officials’ failures is the vinyl-roof building that was supposed to serve as the school’s temporary gym. The school is four years into a 10-year lease agreement, which costs $60,000 annually for a facility shuttered last year because of liability concerns. The gym hasn’t been approved by the state’s architectural board. It remains padlocked during school hours, but is used now by the YMCA. “If they tried to screw things up, they couldn’t have made it any worse than it is,” said former Vasquez volleyball player Chris Evans, a 2002 graduate. The failed bond measures would have qualified the district for state matching funds for construction. Jorgensen believes opponents of the bond measures are typically older retirees who don’t have children in local schools. “It’s tough because when you go (to school board meetings) listening to those guys talk,” Ivie said, “they make it sound like the high school is the biggest problem they’ve ever had in Acton, like this school is the worst thing that’s ever happened here.” Ivie finds it difficult to understand after spending part of his childhood in football-mad Texas. “I grew up hearing about Odessa (Texas) and small towns like that, that just love their football teams and surround their football teams,” Ivie said. “I really never expected this.” Gideon Rubin, (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

(Image: For more free photos, visit the image library)MEDIA CONTACTS Judy Davies Busa web communications +2711 784 8000RELATED ARTICLES • SABMiller invests more in Angola • Economy warms to new governorBongani NkosiSouth Africa and the US are set to strengthen trade and investment ties following the outcomes of the Africa Business Summit in Washington DC, which ran from 29 September to 1 October 2009.The partnership was signed by Business Unity South Africa (Busa) and the Corporate Council for Africa (CCA), which represents 85% of US private-sector investors on the continent.The US-South Africa business dialogue, co-hosted by Busa and the CCA, took place within the margins of the summit.It aimed at providing US investors with insight into trading opportunities in Africa and was attended by delegates from South Africa, Rwanda, Nigeria, Kenya, Senegal, Ghana, Uganda, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Sudan, Liberia and Tanzania.New era“The partnership will identify future areas of cooperation in order to deepen the trade and investment relationship between South Africa and the US,” said Busa CEO Jerry Vilakazi.His sentiments were echoed by CCA president and CEO Stephen Hayes, who said it “marked the beginning of a new era in the US-SA bilateral relationship”.Representatives from more than 30 South African and US organisations participated in the dialogue. These included African Rainbow Minerals, PricewaterhouseCoopers, SABMiller, South African-based stock exchange JSE Limited, Aspen Pharmacare, Johnson & Johnson, Motorola, South Africa’s Transnet Port Authority, Oracle, Lockheed Martin, Seacom and Westinghouse.“Specific issues were identified for further discussion in five key sectors, [which are] energy/power, infrastructure, health, IT and financial services,” Vilakazi added.Clear agendaIt is hoped that a clear agenda will be set up within the next few months to help strengthen South Africa’s relationship with the CCA.“We will also create networking opportunities and make it a priority to strengthen the important economic partnership between our two countries,” said Vilakazi, adding that the agreement will enable the private sector in both countries to “provide input into the Consultative Group on Trade and Investment that was established by the US and the Southern African Customs Union [Sacu]”.The Consultative Group on Trade and Investment came into force on 16 July 2008 to expand trade and strengthen economic relations between the US and Sacu member countries, which are South Africa, Swaziland, Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland.South African Minister of Trade and Industry (DTI) Dr Rob Davies and US Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs ambassador Johnnie Carson addressed the signing event.Both governments expressed their support for strengthened cooperation between the South African and American business communities. South African business leaders, including Busa founding president Patrice Motsepe, also witnessed the signing.Sound trade relationshipThe US is South Africa’s second largest trading partner after China, with 8.3% of all South African exports sold in the US in the first six months of the year.According to statistics released by the DTI, South African exports to the US declined by 42.6% in the first six months of 2009 compared to the same period of 2008. This decline can be expected given the US economic crisis.But despite the decline, trade relations between South Africa and the US remain sound.There are two specific programmes which grant South African products preferential access to the US market. The first is under the Generalised System of Preferences, which grants duty-free access for more than 4 650 products.The second is under the African Growth and Opportunity Act introduced in 2000 by then US president George W Bush. The purpose of the legislation, which expires in 2015, is to assist the economies of sub-Saharan Africa and boost trade and other economic relations with the region.South Africa and the US also signed the Trade and Investment Framework Arrangement (Tifa) in 1999. Such frameworks are formal arrangements under which the US and another country, or bloc of countries, can discuss issues related to trade and investment.The SA-US Bilateral Cooperation Forum, which was set up in 2001, is a further mechanism used to address trade and investment issues between the two countries.Queries or comments?
