Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netHe’s not going anywhere just yet as Robert Bolick is staying in San Beda.Skipping this year’s draft, the veteran playmaker showed how valuable he is for the Red Lions as he helped his team to pull off the 73-68 win over Letran on Friday.It’s just the kind of performance the San Beda faithful have gotten themselves accustomed to, and something they will look forward to as the Red Lions engage in a collision course against league-leading Pirates on Thursday.(5) Levi dela Cruz – G, Arellano Chiefs10.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 stealsLast Week: N/ALevi dela Cruz. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netIt’s easy to see Arellano flop after Kent Salado suffered a slight MCL tear in his right knee.But the Chiefs are still fighting, and one of the reasons for that is Levi dela Cruz.The pint-sized playmaker has taken the baton and ran with it to keep Arellano in the thick of the playoff race.Even dela Cruz would admit that he’s no Salado, but he’s doing an admirable job holding the fort for the Chiefs in this late run as they are just a win away from forcing a playoff for the fourth and final semifinals seat. FEU pushes shorthanded UST to brink of elimination Stellar in JRU’s 62-58 squeaker over Mapua on Tuesday, he was largely inefficient as  league-leading Lyceum bamboozled his side to a 100-63 beatdown.The Heavy Bombers may have already secured their seat in the Final Four, but it doesn’t mean that they can now fall into the trap of complacency, especially with motivated teams raring to upset them on their way to the semifinals.

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netTalk about staying alive.Dead and gone a few weeks back, Arellano woke up from its slumber just in the nick of time to make a late case for the Final Four.It shouldn’t come as a surprise, too, that Lervin Flores’ stellar play coincided with the three-game winning stretch as he rekindled his magic and established himself once again as a force to be reckoned with down low.One more win separates the Chiefs from their goal of forcing a playoff, and Flores is once again expected to backstop his side in their all-important clash against Perpetual.  (6) Jayson David – F, San Sebastian Golden Stags13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 stealLast Week: N/AJayson David.

Undermining of Christian, biblical values under President David Granger

first_imgDear Editor,There continues to be an undermining of Christian and biblical values under the watch of President David Granger, which is a worry because the President regularly says he holds these values dear when he engages the Christian community. Yet, the actions of his coalition have seen no adequate response from him.I am speaking specifically to two issues, corruption and the massive expansion of gambling in Guyana.Almost everywhere you go there are gambling shops being set up. Why isn’t President David Granger addressing this, especially since he presents himself as a good Christian?Almost every day I read the Kaieteur News online and wonder about the corruption in the oil and gas sector. Added to this is the regular reports from the different newspapers about underhand dealings of President David Granger’s Ministers. Why isn’t President David Granger addressing this?Editor, I am not saying that religious beliefs held by a President must take over. But shouldn’t they at least guide a President on the issues of corruption and gambling, which are, I think, black and white issues? Corruption should not be condoned. Gambling should not be so accessible that our young people are affected.The other social ills that seem to be taking a foothold in our society are also a matter of concern.Sincerely,Pastor DarionComacholast_img read more

City Equipment

first_imgity equipment was front and centre once again at last night’s regular Council meeting. As you may recall, the City has recently changed its policy, which had evolved over the years to allow a multitude of public groups to use City equipment, such as tents, stages, and bleachers, for nominal fees.The City had become concerned that this policy was costing the city too much money, and was providing competition to local businesses. However, the modified policy has now resulted in the Go Karts For Girls program being provided with money for tents, but not for any bleachers.Councillor Larry Evans says he thinks the new policy is too strict, and he wants to see non-profit groups being offered the use of City equipment if possible. [asset|aid=107|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=Evans-Equipment_2_Pub.mp3] However, Councillor Lori Ackerman says she would prefer to give grants to non-profit groups, so they can rent equipment themselves.- Advertisement -City Manager Dianne Hunter cautions that a policy allowing all non-profit groups to use City equipment would be not only expensive, but also discourage businesses from stocking up such inventory themselves. (She suggests one of the reasons the City was able to do such a good job setting up for last weekend’s softball tournament is that staff didn’t have to set up and deliver equipment for private groups.)Council will now revisit the issue at a strategic planning session, to be held in September.last_img read more

Liverpool and Manchester City chase Barcelona star

first_img Barcelona star Pedro with the Champions League trophy 1 Liverpool and Manchester City are among a number of heavyweight European clubs said to be monitoring Pedro’s future at Barcelona.The winger is reportedly considering a move this summer due to his first-team chances being limited by the formidable trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar.According to Mundo Deportivo, Pedro is open to a move away from the Nou Camp despite signing a new contract at the start of June.His new deal runs until 2019 but it is understood that Barca will contemplate selling the 27-year-old if they receive an offer of over £18m.Sources in Spain claim that Pedro would be keen on a switch to the Premier League, although Paris Saint-Germain would also provide an attractive destination.last_img read more

AFC: Brady, Pats’ roll along

first_img On Saturday night, the Patriots beat them 28-3 with 4 ½ sacks by Willie McGinest and three touchdown passes by Tom Brady. Since the Jaguars’ last playoff appearance, a loss in the AFC championship game to Tennessee on Jan. 23, 2000, the Patriots have won three Super Bowls in four years. “We were at a disadvantage in the first half,” Del Rio said. “I’m not going to stand here and say that was a reason we didn’t play well.” They played worse after communications were restored in the second half. And Del Rio’s decision to use Leftwich rather than David Garrard, who was 5-1 as the replacement, didn’t work out very well even though Bruschi missed the game with a left calf injury. “I didn’t feel any rust,” Leftwich said. “I was excited to be back out there.” He was 11-for-15 for 101 yards and no interceptions in the first half and finished 18-for-31 for 179 yards with a very costly interception. Jacksonville thought the Patriots’ secondary could be vulnerable, but they played more double coverage than the Jaguars expected. “They played us differently than they played everybody else, I’d say, for the last 10 games,” Leftwich said. The Patriots didn’t blitz much, but McGinest had three sacks against Leftwich and 1 ½ against Garrard. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Jaguars got back to the playoffs and found out they didn’t belong at least against the Patriots. Not even the return of Jacksonville quarterback Byron Leftwich and the absence of New England linebacker Tedy Bruschi could help the Jaguars, the last team to beat the Patriots in the playoffs. That was in another wild-card game seven years ago in Jacksonville. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson But this season Jacksonville went 12-4, the fourth-best record among NFL playoff teams, while New England was 10-6. And the Jaguars won eight of their last nine games. The teams they beat during that stretch, though, had a combined record of 27-69. “We don’t have any say-so over the schedule,” Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said. “This was certainly the best team we’ve seen in a while.” For one half, the Jaguars kept up. They trailed 7-3 as Brady was mediocre and Leftwich played decently after missing six weeks with a broken left ankle. They even stayed close after communication malfunctions between Del Rio and his assistant coaches as they tried to send the plays in to Leftwich for much of the first half. Del Rio said he asked officials to take those systems away from the Patriots but was told there was no rule requiring that. last_img read more

Alan Mullery: Forget the title… Brighton have been magnificent this season!

first_imgBrighton have been ‘absolutely magnificent’ this season and should feel no shame in not winning the Championship title.That’s the view of former Seagulls boss Alan Mullery, who called into talkSPORT on Monday to hit out at suggestions the players had somehow ‘failed’ by losing out on top spot.Chris Hughton’s side sealed promotion to the Premier League on April 17 and were well poised to finish top, having moved seven points clear of Newcastle with three games remaining.But they were unable to get the three points required from any of their last three games to take the trophy and were agonisingly leapfrogged by the Magpies on the final day of the season.Mullery, however, insists everyone at the club should feel nothing but pride for their efforts.“They were far more disappointed last season by missing out on promotion to Middlesbrough on goal difference of one goal than they will ever be now,” he said.“That [winning promotion] was a cloud lifted off the players. They have been absolutely magnificent for 90-odd games.“If you have played 92 games over two seasons and you have not been out the top three and then you gain promotion a season later with three games to go, the heavy weight that they have had have over the past few seasons has fallen off their back.“They have been magnificent this season from start to finish. You have got to give credit to Chris Hughton and all the players.”last_img read more

Fabian Delph hails England’s character after dramatic win over Croatia

first_img Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions 4 Delph was arguably a surprise selection for this game, starting in midfield alongside Eric Dier and Ross Barkley, however, Southgate explained before the match that Jordan Henderson was carrying an injury.Starting Delph turned out to be a masterstroke, with the Manchester City man spraying the ball around brilliantly to the delight of England fans.But Delph, who played left-back for most of last season at City as cover for the injured Benjamin Mendy, admitted even he doesn’t know where his best position is.He added: “I’m not sure what type of player I am to be honest! Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT 4 Delph was in very impressive form during the game RANKED Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ndidi bid, targets named, Ozil is ‘skiving little git’ It looked as though England were going to slump to relegation from the top tier when Andrej Kramaric’s deflected strike gave the visitors an undeserved lead.However, the introduction of substitutes Dele Alli, Lingard and Jadon Sancho helped Gareth Southgate’s men get a second wind and eventually secure the win.And Delph cited the character in the England dressing room as the main reason for them completing the comeback, while also heaping praise on the second-half substitutes.Speaking to talkSPORT’s Nigel Adderley after the game, Delph said: “The win doesn’t surprise me. We’ve got a lot of character in the dressing room, we’ve got a management team that believe in us and we’re all heading in the same direction. “After going a goal behind I don’t think we panicked out there, we stayed true to ourselves and as I said we’ve got more than enough to come from a goal behind to win.“The subs that came on made a massive difference.“We only had two days to plan for this game after playing the USA.

SHAY HOPEFUL OF A MOVE OR A CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF

first_imgShay Given has admitted he is frustrated he is not playing first team football but he says he hopes he will get a chance to prove himself again.Shay – still hopeful of a move.The Lifford man, who is on a reported €70K a week at Aston Villa, still has three years left on his contract.Villa are prepared to let him go but few clubs will pay such high money for a 37 year old. Liverpool talked to the player but came nowhere near meeting his wage demands.Given said he is keeping himself very fit and is ready if he gets the call – from whoever.“Of course it’s just frustrating not playing, it’s hard to keep training and know there’s no game at the end of the week,” he said. “Things can change quickly in football with injuries and suspensions and if I get an opportunity I’ve got to be ready to take it if that hopefully comes along. I’m fit as a fiddle and feel really sharp. I’m just raring to get that chance.“I played in Stiliyan Petrov’s testimonial in front of 60,000 fans at the weekend and as a player that’s all you want to do, to show people you’ve still got the ability to play in the Premier League.”  SHAY HOPEFUL OF A MOVE OR A CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF was last modified: September 11th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Aston VillaLiffordShay Giventransferlast_img read more
