  • Hughes hopeful over Guidetti deal

    first_imgStoke manager Mark Hughes hopes to give a different dimension to his side with the addition of Manchester City’s young striker John Guidetti, but other paperwork must be completed first. The Potters boss has expressed an interest in bringing in the 21-year-old on loan but has to make Stephen Ireland’s loan from Aston Villa permanent before that can happen. First-choice striker Peter Crouch and fellow forward Jon Walters both scored in the 5-3 defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday but there was no place in the squad for Kenwyne Jones. “There are certain parts of our game where we need a different option, to go in behind and we lack a bit of pace so we’d like to address that – but we’ve been looking since the summer,” said Hughes of a player he knows from his time managing City. “It is an obvious part of our play. “If we can get him in he’s a player that can add to what we have got and we are trying to add different options to our attack. “He’s a natural goalscorer and if we can get him into the right areas he will take chances. “He was there (City) as a young player and worked with our under-21 coach Glynn Hodges when he was also there, so we know him.” While Hughes is looking to add more goals to a team which has scored just 22 goals in 21 matches he has no worries about young goalkeeper Jack Butland, who made his full Premier League debut on Sunday. The England Under-21 international has been involved in the last three games – coming on at half-time of the New Year’s Day draw with Everton after injury to Thomas Sorensen – with first-choice Asmir Begovic previously ruled out for up to six weeks with a broken finger. “It was a difficult start for Jack as almost immediately he has conceded through no fault of his own,” said Hughes referring to Ryan Shawcross’s early own goal which opened the floodgates against Liverpool. “He will be an outstanding goalkeeper, we know that, he just needs to have more experience at this level and that is what I hope to give him in the coming weeks.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

  • Cricket News World Test Championship: With no Dhoni in Test matches, will India use Jersey No 7?

    first_imgNew Delhi: The upcoming World Test Championship will feature jersey numbers behind the white shirts for the first time but there are two numbers that the Indian team is unlikely to use during the Test series against the West Indies in Antigua starting August 22. Sachin Tendulkar’s famous jersey No.10 has already been “unofficially retired” by the BCCI from white ball cricket after pacer Shardul Thakur wore it briefly and was heavily trolled on social media.While no Indian players wears the No.10 jersey as a mark of respect for Tendulkar’s stupendous achievements, there is a strong possibility that jersey No.7 worn by Mahendra Singh Dhoni in limited-overs will also not be used in the days’ format.It is learnt that most of the Indian players will opt for their limited-overs jersey numbers.”Virat is expected to wear 18 while Rohit wears 45. Most of the players will wear their respective ODI and T20 numbers. Since MS is no longer playing Test cricket, jersey No.7 is available but there is very little chance that any of the players will wear it,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.”People relate jersey No 7 with MS. The consignment of numbered jerseys will only arrive in Caribbean only after ODI series,” he added.While a jersey can’t be retired officially, the BCCI may mull a move as Dhoni’s stature in Indian cricket is such and they also have the Thakur trolling incident on the back of their minds.Dhoni, who has been playing limited overs internationals since 2015, has taken a two-month sabbatical to serve the Parachute Regiment under the Territorial Army where he is an Honorary Lieutenant Colonel.The Ashes, starting August 1, will be the first bilateral under the World championship banner. It will also be the first such series where players will have jersey numbers.The move by ICC is an effort to popularise the game and help fans connect better with the players.

  • Powerlifting team arrives in Uruguay

    first_img– GAPLF president lauds Government’s contributionTHIRTEEN athletes and officials arrived in Uruguay, last evening, to commence participation in the September 17 – 22, PanAmerican/South American Powerlifting and Bench Press Equipped and Classic Championships, with the Guyana Amateur Powerlifting Federation (GAPLF), president Ed Caesar optimistic of the team’s success. Runita White, Nadina Taharally, Natoya Robinson, Lisa Oudit, Bjorn Williams, Franklin Brisport-Luke, Frank Tucker, Noel Cummings and Nairanjan Singh are the athletes, while White and Taharally will double as officials, along with Colin Andrew Austin (Manager), Erwyn Smith (Coach) and Gordon Spencer (Category 2 Referee). Kathleen Paul is the team’s Physiotherapist.Caesar, a former national record holder and PanAmerican champion in the sport, informed that athletes selected to represent Guyana at the prestigious powerlifting event, are all capable of winning medals, since “none of them is going there for experience.”  According to the former Chief Education Officer, all the athletes surpassed the basic qualifying standard set by the GAPLF.  It was also stated that the team reaching Uruguay would not have been possible without the Government of Guyana’s $3.6M sponsorship. Contributions were also received from a number of agencies and individuals. The relevant information, in this regard, will be made public on the team’s return. The Government’s contribution was channelled through the National Sports Commission (NSC), and Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, pointed out that he was more than delighted in ensuring that the lifters were given much-needed support in their desire to make Guyana proud during the engagement in Uruguay.

  • ‘Giving his heart away’: Syracuse remembers high school coach, close friend 2 years after his passing

    first_img Published on January 28, 2014 at 2:21 am Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb Too often, Robert “Apache” Paschall had seen young adults fall victim to the difficulties and dangers of growing up in New York City. He was almost one of those victims.He was well aware of the consequences of poor situations and poorer decisions. Apache had that in mind when he sat down four troubled players in the Henry Street gym in the Lower East Side of Manhattan before practice.One of those girls was high school freshman Taylor Ford, who at the time was stuck befriending the wrong crowd. She’ll never forget his words from that day.“Don’t be the person that people don’t want to be around with,” Apache told them, lecturing them for 20 minutes in a storage room. “You are who your friends are. Be the person who everyone wants to be around.”“Apache actually changed my life,” said Ford, now a sophomore forward at Syracuse. “Without him, I don’t know where I would be. I don’t know if I would be at a Division I college or home or whatever. Because of him, I’m where I am now.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textApache was the head coach at St. Michael’s Academy in midtown Manhattan from 2002 until it closed in June 2010. He then moved on to Nazareth Regional High School in Brooklyn, bringing with him Ford and other St. Michael’s players, where they won the state championship. The next season, current SU sophomore Brianna Butler moved to New York from Pennsylvania and joined Nazareth.Apache died on Jan. 3, 2012, at age 38 — midway through Butler and Ford’s senior year — of cardiac arrest related to complications from skin cancer. This January marked the two-year anniversary of his death.Throughout his coaching career, Apache talked nearly every day with his longtime friend Quentin Hillsman, who is now in his eighth season as Syracuse’s head coach.“He died giving his heart away,” Hillsman said. “He didn’t get rich in this game. He didn’t make money. He was pretty much on welfare and helping kids. That’s what he did.”The game of basketball saved Apache’s life, so in return he dedicated many years of his life to keeping as many girls off the streets as he could. He became one of the most well-known basketball coaches in the city, thanks to his two state championships at the high school level and the success he enjoyed with the Exodus AAU program he founded in 1996.And not even his cancer would stop him from coaching and influencing lives until the very day he died.“He had the heart of a lion. His heart was enormous,” said Lauren Best, Apache’s assistant coach and fiancée. “The day he passed, we were going to go to his treatment and then practice.“He could barely stand up but he said, ‘I’m not going to let my kids down.’”**Apache’s mother spent 16 years in prison for selling cocaine and his brother also did time for selling drugs.One of his uncles was killed while attempting a robbery and another uncle admitted to murdering five people.Apache easily could’ve gone down the wrong path himself, but basketball became Apache’s escape. So he made it his goal in life to teach girls that the game could be their outlet, too.His players became his daughters. He made sure they ate. He made sure they had winter coats. He made sure they had a shoulder to cry on and a friend to call at 3 a.m.“He wasn’t just a basketball coach,” said Ron Kelley, Apache’s assistant coach. “He wasn’t just a guy that showed up when it was time for practice or the game and then headed home until next time.”**Before Apache’s words changed Ford’s life, his actions may have saved it.“Taylor Ford is one of those young ladies that had some issues at home,” Kelley said. “Apache grabbed her, saw she had a little bit of talent, and just didn’t let go.”Ford’s parents separated when she was 10, and her mother worked two jobs to try and support her four children. In middle school, Apache introduced Ford to serious basketball by bringing her to his AAU Exodus program.Ford never thought she could earn a scholarship for basketball, but Apache saw just enough potential to push her to achieve one. When her visit to Penn State disappointed her, Apache was on the other end of the phone to comfort her.But as Ford put in the work to develop Division I potential, her overall attitude lacked because of the people surrounding her. She wasn’t particularly friendly or outgoing. Apache’s advice that day before practice at the Henry Street gym changed that.“I started to watch what they were doing and I realized I shouldn’t be around them,” Ford said. “He made me a more fun person. He made me happy about life.”**When Butler joined Exodus, she played behind a group of superstars. She was unselfish on the court and deferred to those players, but Apache thought she was doing it all wrong.And he let everyone in the gym know it.“He would just get at her during games and almost had to force her to shoot the ball sometimes,” Kelley said. “And by the time she was a senior, she had developed into this really aggressive scoring machine.”All of the yelling Butler took from Apache served as motivation. She’d spend an extra hour after practices working on her 3-point shooting, pull-up jumpers and ability to attack the basket. Butler sought to become more of an offensive threat and less of a passive player.Her dedication paid off in an out-of-state tournament game, where Butler had what Apache told her afterward was one of the best games he had seen her play.And by the time Butler left high school, she was the No. 13 recruit in the country. “If he’s yelling at you, you know he wants you to do well,” Butler said. “He taught me to be a killer and not back down from a challenge.”**Late in their friendship, a very ill Apache grumbled to Hillsman about having to drink protein shakes.“Listen, you have to drink this,” Hillsman told him.“You think this is so damn good? Then you drink some,” Apache retorted. Just so Apache wouldn’t have to drink one alone, Hillsman drank one – and it was “pretty nasty,” he said.Hillsman laughed as he reflected, then slowly become more solemn. “That was the last moment that he and I had together. You kind of knew that this was a moment you need to cherish, because he wasn’t doing well.”The two first met when they were in high school. As their coaching careers began to take form, they crossed paths enough in basketball gyms across the East Coast and realized they had much in common. They became a sounding board for each other, whether they spoke about basketball or life beyond the game.When Apache had three players that needed to get out of New York, Hillsman took them in to his Laurinburg (N.C.) Institute program. That team went 22-0, en route to the 2002-03 prep school girls’ national championship.With that, a pipeline was born.“Our players were our babies,” Best said. “You can’t send your child to play for just anybody. You got to send them to somebody who will take care of them, and Coach Q took care of our babies.”When Best found Apache unresponsive on the day of his death, her first call was for the paramedics. Her second call was for Hillsman to console her.**Butler and Ford don’t bring up Apache intentionally. Even two years later, his absence is still new to them. But once in a while a moment surfaces, and his words and mannerisms return as vividly as ever to the roommates.“We just stay strong for each other,” Butler said, “and we just know that he’s in a better place.”Both of their Instagram accounts pay homage to Apache and his favorite saying: “Love is love.”Behind Butler’s left ear is a tattoo that commemorates Apache and Exodus.They miss his pregame speeches, which were full of intensity and a single wisecrack. During practice, some of Butler’s tendencies remind Ford of the times Apache raised his voice at her. Each time Ford eats seafood, one of Apache’s favorite meals, she thinks of him.He may be gone, but he’s certainly not forgotten.“Every now and then,” Hillsman said, “you can just see his influences over our program and over those two and even over me, because we were so close.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

  • Elation, Ekali, Esports: Conquest 2018 thrives despite paused bonfire tradition

    first_img[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”12″ display=”photocrati-nextgen_basic_slideshow”]Against a backdrop of vibrant fireworks and electrifying music from EDM artist Ekali and rapper Tierra Whack, nearly 5,000 students gathered at McCarthy Quad Thursday to celebrate the 15th annual Conquest rally ahead of USC’s matchup with crosstown rival UCLA Saturday.“I think [this year’s Conquest’ was different,” said Kira Stiers, co-director of the USC Concerts Committee. “We had a lot more interactive things, the experience was a lot better.” The event featured a ferris wheel, multiple carnival games, a jousting arena and an interactive black light tunnel where attendees could write and draw on walls with fluorescent markers. While USC Student Affairs and the Los Angeles Fire Marshal canceled the highly anticipated bonfire due to air quality concerns, the organizing comittee had alternative activities for attendees. “Pie a bRuin” allowed participants to throw pies at cutouts of Bruin bears. UCLA’s analogous rivalry rally, Beat ‘SC, also got rid of its bonfire at this year’s iteration.“I think it’s good that they’re being sensitive about the current situations and not putting a bonfire when there are so many fires recently,” said Kimberly Montana, a senior majoring in psychology and global medicine. The night kicked off with a League of Legends tournament that ultimately ended in a tie.Senior Keanu Concepcion, director of the USC Esports Union, said that the Esports competition would help “elevate” Conquest.“We wanted to really kick [Conquest] off and show USC … we’re here to build up a community,” Concepcion said. “[The tournament] is to help showcase to students that we’re going to do Esports and gaming in a really big and fun way.”Many attendees showed support for the debut of the campus varsity League team by cheering and shouting in the crowd.“[The tournament] was fantastic, the players showed character,” said Gordon Bellany, USC Esports’ co-advisor. “You found out with a little adversity, what you’re made of — and they showed us that they were USC Trojans.” After the tournament, the Song Girls kicked off the spirit rally with colorful and energetic performances set to popular songs, including “Lose My Breath” by Destiny’s Child and “Toy Soldier” by Britney Spears. Other student organizations, including Trojan Dance Force, a capella group UnderSCore, dance team Breakthrough and USC Cheer also performed to invigorate the eager crowd. Next, the Trojan Marching Band entered McCarthy Quad playing signature gameday cadences such as the “Fight Song” and “Conquest” alongside the Song Girls and Spirit Leaders. Multiple athletic programs such as women’s rowing, men’s tennis, women’s water polo and men’s volleyball were introduced. The football team was later brought onstage and the rally ended with a firework show. Rapper Tierra Whack, known for her debut album “Whack World,” opened the concert. To hype up the crowd, the rapper  chanted, “Crack kills, if it don’t get you Whack will” and performed several songs from her discography, such as “Toe Jam,” “Bugs Life,” “Pretty Ugly” and “Fruit Salad.” Whack threw Red Bull into the crowd to engage with the audience. However, the audience wasn’t as responsive, according to Ishan Shan, a sophomore majoring in computer engineering and computer science. “Tierra Whack was great, she really hyped everyone up,” Stiers said. “She’s just such a unique presence, I think people were really surprised.”Ekali, a Canadian DJ with a SoundCloud following of 187,000, headlined the concert. The set commenced with  his original song “Babylon.” He later remixed Post Malone’s “rockstar,” Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.” and Sheck Wes’ “Mo Mamba.” USC Concerts Committee handed out LED wristbands, which flashed colorfully and in tune with Ekali’s music.Gage Autry, a junior majoring in accounting, approved of the Concerts Committee’s bookings in the last two academic years.“[Ekali] was pretty good,” Autry said. “They’ve been doing this EDM vibe the past couple concerts and I think it’s fun. It looks like a lot of people are having fun.” Ashlynn Smith, a sophomore majoring in chemical engineering complimented Ekali’s set, saying that he was able to get the crowd’s attention with his bright sets and charisma. “I wasn’t expecting him to be as lit as he was,” Smith said.last_img read more

  • Syracuse football preseason storylines, No. 1: How Syracuse adapts to Dino Babers’ spread offense

    first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments At nearly every school the offense has been taken to — Houston, Baylor, Tulsa and Eastern Illinois — there’s been an immediate improvement. Bowling Green suffered a one-year, two-win drop off, but reached 10 wins, like it had the year before Babers arrived, in his second season.The Carrier Dome turf, save for Doug Marrone’s shotgun offense — it was created weeks before the 2012 season and was predicated on the formation — has been accustomed to “Northeast football.” Under center, running-based offenses.While the spread Babers is bringing uses the run often, it’ll sling the ball just as much, if not more than, any offense that has been put on the turf before.

  • Dodgers manager Dave Roberts on lineup changes: ‘Our players have got to accept it’

    first_imgCINCINNATI — In his first two years as manager, the Dodgers won 195 games and reached the World Series with Dave Roberts mixing and matching lineups based on splits and analytic input, making frequent pitching changes in search of matchups and limiting the exposure of starting pitchers.In his third year, the Dodgers are underachieving, cut out of the playoff seating chart with 16 games to play and Roberts is being criticized for … mixing and matching lineups based on splits and analytic input, making frequent pitching changes in search of matchups and limiting the exposure of starting pitchers.“When I write the lineup, I believe that’s what gives us the best chance to win that day,” said Roberts, who has used 141 different lineups this season. He used 147 during the regular season last year and 120 as a rookie manager in 2016.“Would you rather have every single guy that you run out there that hits righties and lefties the same, both have the same OPS north of .800? Yeah, but that’s not the case. So when you have a roster that you can manipulate or manage it – yeah, that’s what we have. Every manager would like to have that. … When you don’t have eight Justin Turners then … that’s what happens. And this is the way I feel gives us the best chance to win.” Left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu could start Sunday on regular rest or right-hander Ross Stripling could come back on short rest after his 3-1/3-inning start against the Reds on Wednesday, looking to take advantage of the Cardinals’ heavily right-handed lineup, according to Roberts.“We haven’t made that decision,” Roberts said Wednesday.Wood leads the Dodgers in games started (27) and innings pitched (148). But his average fastball velocity has dipped below 90 mph and the Dodgers have pushed Wood back in the rotation multiple times in the second half. Over his past six starts, Wood has pitched beyond the fifth inning just twice, posting a 3.52 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in those six starts.“He hasn’t been as sharp,” Roberts said. “He was really sharp in that Texas start (seven scoreless innings on eight days’ rest). But outside of that, he hasn’t been as sharp as he has been earlier this year.“With my eyes, obviously when you’re talking about workload, that certainly plays a part in it. Talking to him and the training staff, he feels strong. But the fact is it’s not as crisp as it was earlier this year.”UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 7-5, 2.42 ERA) at Cardinals (LHP Austin Gomber, 5-0, 2.93 ERA), Thursday, 4:15 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), MLB Network (out of market only) How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season It has been more pronounced this year due to performance – or, rather, lack of performance.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.Players who were everyday players at one point have been reduced to platoon pieces because of a lack of production against a certain type of pitching (Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson against left-handers) or significant dropoffs in the second half of the season (Matt Kemp and Max Muncy, most prominently).With expanded rosters in September, Roberts has enough options that he has been able to “manipulate” the lineup from one day to the next, loading up on right- or left-handed batters as the matchup dictates – and switching again with pinch-hitters against relievers of the opposite hand. In one game against the Colorado Rockies last weekend, he started an all right-handed lineup, then used five consecutive left-handed pinch-hitters mid-game.Roberts has repeatedly praised players for “buying in” to the concept of playing the percentages, even if it costs them playing time as individuals. That sales pitch is more difficult for him to make when the results aren’t the same, Roberts admitted. But he does not believe the inconsistency in the lineup is the cause of an offense that has failed to perform with any consistency.“It’s something I believe in. Our players have got to accept it because this is the way it’s gotta be with our roster,” Roberts said. “I know it’s going to turn. We haven’t had (offensive) consistency all year. September, we obviously have a deeper roster but we’ve had these same inconsistencies all year. So it’s not about just September and this sample of September. We haven’t had traction offensively all year as far as consistency. I can’t just say, ‘Now we have more players and we’re playing a right-handed, left-handed lineup. Now this is the reason why,’ because it’s been the same all year.center_img “The challenge for all of us, myself included, is to look at yourself honestly and figure out what you need to do better and not make excuses. I think with any role, whatever we do, it’s not easy. You still have to do the best when given an opportunity. And that’s all of us.”PLAN AHEADThe Dodgers will start Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler and Rich Hill in the first three games of their four-game series in St. Louis this week. Left-hander Alex Wood will not start in the series. Instead, he will be pushed back and “potentially” start during the series against the Colorado Rockies at home next week, Roberts said.Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
