Ginebra thwarts San Miguel’s grand slam bid, enters semis

first_imgOSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Joe Devance scored 17 points, hitting four triples, while guards LA Tenorio and Scottie Thompson had near double-double efforts and towering big men Greg Slaughter and Japeth Aguilar added 13 points each.“Nobody saw that coming. we just played great from start to finish. It was one of those nights for them and it came at a bad time for them,” Ginebra head coach Tim Cone told reporters.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogGinebra, who owned a twice-to-beat advantage as the No. 3 seed, dealt San Miguel its worst loss of the season.The Gin Kings made it look easy in knocking off the star-studded Beermen, who have the reigning three-time MVP June Mar Fajardo, but Cone said he didn’t feel at ease until Thompson buried a 3-pointer that stretched the lead to 30 with 2:35 remaining.

If you look at the score, the only time I felt safe was when we had a 102-72 lead,” Cone said.“I cant tell you how relieved I am that we’re not playing a knockout game with them.”The Kings outscored the Beermen, 23-9, in the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter capped by a basket by Brownlee for a 97-70 lead.The game started the way it was expected to be with neither team giving an inch. But Brownlee shifted into high gear and carried Ginebra with him in the second quarter, where he shot 16 points and San Miguel was limited to just nine.“Our defense really stepped up today. Going into this game that was really our battlecry because we all know the kind of firepower San Miguel has,” said Tenorio, who finished with eight points and 10 assists as he and Thompson outplayed the Beermen’s backcourt duo of Chris Ross and Alex Cabagnot.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson In ‘Jojo Rabbit,’ Comedy and Drama Collide Ross and Cabagnot combined for only 13 points, four rebounds and eight assists.Thompson tallied seven points, team-high 13 rebounds, four assists and two steals.Terrence Watson scored 30 points but he failed to step up when SMB needed him most. Fajardo, who is tipped to win his fourth straight MVP award, had 19 points and 22 rebounds with five blocks.It was only fitting that the last coach to win the Grand Slam prevented history from repeating itself.

Return to rational thinking and respect for rule of law

first_imgDear Editor,Let’s play a game. I did not invent it but the parameters and rules have been set by Guyana’s Court of Appeal (2-1). In this game, players add a single word to an Article of the Constitution then make an argument that this is what the framers intended. It seems a simple and innocuous enough premise and should the recent addition of “absolute” be upheld by the Caribbean Court of Justice, we can expect decades of fun and fees for the legal luminaries in the jurisdictions that subscribe to that court.I will take the liberty of going first, as is the prerogative of anyone who frames rules for games;Article 106 (7), notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and hold an elections within three months or such longer period as GECOM or the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by two-thirds of the votes of all elected members of the National Assembly determine and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office after the electionEditor, I expect that change is what President Granger wants and no doubt a Medal of Service will be due my way (I am ineligible for Silk). In fact, I quite expect David Granger to be the ‘man to beat’ at this game, for he has been playing it quite effectively for some time on his own; Granger’s masterpiece in altering Article 161 (2) by addition of“…provided that if the Leader of the Opposition submits or fails to submit a list as provided for, the President shall appoint a person who holds or has held office as a Judge or …”Editor, now that the Court of Appeal let us know the game exists and is viable, I look forward to a future of great uncertainty and never-ending chaos as we play ‘Words with Granger’, to the detriment of the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. I would much rather be playing ‘democracy’ and a return to rational thinking and respect for the rule of law.Respectfully,Robin Singhlast_img read more

Look who’s back

first_imgThe Hoyas trailed just once – on Mike Cook’s layup to start the game – and left no doubt as to how their first appearance in the finals since 1996 would turn out. Conference USA: No. 5 Memphis 71, Houston 59 Chris Douglas-Roberts and Antonio Anderson each scored 17 points and the Tigers extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 22 games to become the first Conference USA team to go undefeated in the regular season and win the tournament title. Mountain West: No. 25 UNLV 78, No. 23 BYU 70 The Runnin’ Rebels raced into their first NCAA tournament in seven years, rallying from a 13-point deficit. Jeff Green, the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player, had 21 points for top-seeded Georgetown (26-6), which won its conference-record seventh title and first since 1989. With John Thompson III now coaching Georgetown and Patrick Ewing Jr. one of his players – and their famous fathers sitting just a few rows behind them – these Hoyas established their place in Big East history. Mid American: Miami (Ohio) 53, Akron 52 Doug Penno’s 3-point bank shot sent the RedHawks into the NCAA tournament, but not before a wild twist at the end. With a hand in his face, the guard made the controversial shot off the glass as the horn sounded. Officials huddled at the scorer’s table for 10 minutes, eventually putting 0.6 seconds back on the clock. But the Zips could not successfully inbound the pass. Big West: Long Beach State 94, Cal Poly 83 Aaron Nixon scored 29 points and Kejuan Johnson had 20 as the 49ers rallied from a 10-point deficit in the first half to carry the 49ers to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 12 years. Atlantic 10 Conference: George Washington 78, Rhode Island 69 Carl Elliott scored 17 points to help the Colonials to their third consecutive NCAA bid. WAC: New Mexico State 72, Utah State 70 Justin Hawkins scored 20 points and Elijah Ingram had 18, including four rainbow 3-pointers, to lead the Aggies to an NCAA tournament berth. Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference: Florida A&M 58, Delaware State 56 Brian Greene’s buzzer-beating layup lifted the Rattlers into the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2004. America East: Albany, N.Y. 60, Vermont 59 Jamar Wilson scored 22 points, Jason Siggers had 14 and the Great Danes earned a spot in the NCAA tournament. SWAC: Jackson St. 81, Mississippi Valley St. 71 Trey Johnson scored 33 points to lead the Tigers into the NCAA tournament for the first time in seven years. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

France midfielder Nzonzi seals Roma transfer

first_imgRoma paid an initial fee of 26.65 million euros (30 million euros) for Nzonzi, who featured in five of France’s seven games at the World Cup, including an appearance off the bench in the 4-2 win over Croatia in the final.“I feel very happy to be here, and to be a new Roma player,” Nzonzi told the club’s official website.“I really felt that the club wanted me to come. I will give my best on the pitch, and hopefully be a very good player for this team.“I always want to improve – regardless of age, the most important thing is to give your best and work hard. I want to do that, to become a better player and help the team with my play and experience.”Nzonzi joined Sevilla from English club Stoke in 2015, and was part of the team that beat Liverpool 3-1 in the Europa League final in 2016.“Steven is a footballer with a mix of physical and technical qualities that we think will really add to the players that we already have here,” said Roma sporting director Monchi, who left a similar role at Sevilla for Italy last year.“With his arrival, we have even more quality and competition in midfield.”Roma, who finished third in Serie A last season and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League, begin the new campaign away to Torino on Sunday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Steven Nzonzi came on as a substitute for N’Golo Kante in France’s 4-2 victory over Croatia in the World Cup final © AFP/File / CRISTINA QUICLERROME, Italy, Aug 14 – France international Steven Nzonzi, a World Cup winner in Russia, completed his switch to Roma from Sevilla on Tuesday after signing a four-year deal with the Italian side.The 29-year-old midfielder was greeted by dozens of Roma supporters as he arrived at the airport in the Italian capital, before the club posted images of the player having a medical.last_img read more

Grooveshark Launches Subscription VIP Service

first_imgRelated Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… dana oshiro Not to be outdone by recent announcements from streaming music site Spotify, Gainesville-based Grooveshark announced a $3 per month or $30 per year ad-free Grooveshark VIP service. Grooveshark VIP offers users early access to development pipeline releases including early testing on the upcoming Grooveshark iPhone application and early August 24th access to Grooveshark 2 – the site’s next generation. In addition to offering users WordPress and Facebook integration, Grooveshark spokesperson Josh Bonnain laid down some key differences between Spotify and Grooveshark. Bonnain went on to explain that Grooveshark’s subscription services cost less than a quarter of Spotify’s monthly fees, and will offer many of the same features. For instance, both services stream ad-free music and both allow members to connect and discover premium content. Nevertheless Bonnain points out, “We’re in 231 countries, we’re web-based and our users can upload their entire catalogue to our site. Spotify requires users to install it on every machine they own and they’re only available in a few countries.” Additionally, Bonnain went on to point out the Grooveshark artists community and quiet honestly, we were thrilled to discover it. Beyond the fantastic experience of the music discovery engine and the listener-focused features of the site, Grooveshark actually has a Bandcamp-style service for artists to promote themselves.

Additionally, Grooveshark also allows bands to sell merchandise via Junkytees and TuniPop, license music via Creative Commons, land deals via YouLicense and crowdsource album funding via SellABand. Within the artist’s environment, Grooveshark monetizes its service by offering musicians a chance to have their music advertised and played alongside similar bands. With more than 7 million tracks in its catalogue, the company is effectively leveraging its size and existing audience to make a case as the premier destination for artist promotion. Artists can expect to see their tracks in community playlists and distributed via widgets, links and soon, through mobile playlists. While Spotify’s iPhone application has received a ton of buzz for its ability to play cached music streams, Grooveshark also has an iPhone application in the works. While the app’s current iteration does not allow for offline play, Bonnain assures ReadWriteWeb that the feature is in the mobile developer pipeline and it won’t cost $15 a month to try it when it arrives. While both Grooveshark and Spotify’s premium subscription programs are in their infancy, it will be interesting to see which service will find the right features and licensing partnerships to come out on top. 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more
