How Vain

first_imgRecently I read an article about Gene Keady and his famous hair piece.  It was reported that Gene spent $600 a week for his famous comb over.  Not only did he have this comb over hair piece, he also added hair extensions to cover more of his baldness.If the hair piece alone wasn’t enough, he went to a hairdresser twice a week to further dye the hair, add cream, and get it combed out in an attempt to look good on TV.  Most people would tell you that it didn’t work!Today if you see a St. John’s men’s basketball game on TV, you will see a very bald headed Gene Keady sitting on the bench.  He is now an assistant coach for a former assistant of his, Steve Lavin.  Steve is the head coach at St. John’s.  He went back to coaching after a stint as a TV commentator.last_img read more

Poyet retains hope of great escape

first_img “This world of football has given us another chance and it’s time to take it because we have left it so many times, it would be a shame if we don’t do it now. “If you believe in yourself, depending on where you play and against whom, you will always have another chance. Football always gives you a chance. “The problem is that there are only a few games left, so let’s hope we don’t need to wait for another one. We don’t want not to win this game and then need to go to Manchester United to win to give us another chance against West Brom. “I want to take one of them because we have lost a few.” Time and opportunities are indeed running out for the Black Cats, who travel to managerless United in their final away game next Saturday before two crucial home games against West Brom and Swansea inside the final week of the season. Poyet set a target of four victories for survival several weeks ago, and that remains achievable, although they have managed only seven in the league all season and just one in their last 11 on Wearside since November 10. He said: “I always said that we needed over 36 points, and I have not changed my mind on that. If after you need less, we are lucky. “But the idea is to go and win those four games that we said before. We have got a win and a draw so if we win another three, it’s over. “I know it’s going to be difficult, three from four. People will say, ‘Why are you going to win three from four now?’. “But why are you going to win at Stamford Bridge against Mourinho? Why are you going to draw at Manchester City?”. Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet has challenged his players to complete the miracle they started by winning against the odds at Chelsea. Press Association Last Saturday’s shock 2-1 triumph at Stamford Bridge, which came just four days after they battled their way to within two minutes of a similar result at Manchester City, gave the Black Cats a fighting chance of dragging themselves out of the relegation mire in which they have spent much of the season to date. Poyet’s men looked to have lost all hope of salvation after successive defeats by Norwich, Liverpool, West Ham, Tottenham and Everton left them seven points adrift of safety and with one foot back in the Football League. However, they head into a weekend which sees fellow-strugglers Cardiff travel to the Stadium of Light just three points worse off than the 17th-placed Canaries and believing once again following their heroics against two of the title contenders. Asked if the belief of his players has grown in the last week or so, Poyet said: “It’s been a good week, yes, it’s true. “They are human beings, normal people who were very down because of the situation, and then in four days, everything changed. “Now the idea is, with all respect, we have done something very special, but let’s say half of the miracle. The other half, we still need to make.” Poyet is confident his team are finally carrying the kind of momentum which propelled them to the Capital One Cup final and the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. However, it has too often deserted them in the league and the 46-year-old Uruguayan is conscious they will not be presented with too many more chances to redeem themselves. Sunderland have threatened to dig themselves out of trouble on several occasions, most notably after a 3-0 derby victory at Newcastle on February 1 which lifted them out of the relegation zone, only to slip back into the bottom three. Poyet said: “After the derby, it was better because we were out of the bottom three, but we have been in this position many, many times and somehow, we didn’t take advantage. last_img read more

Sankar sets up 8-wicket win for President’s XI

first_img… Berbice complete second winBy Clifton RossA STERLING exhibition with bat and ball from President’s XI captain Stephon Sankar helped set up an easy 8-wicket win over Essequibo, when Round 2 of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB)/Dave’s West Indian Imports U-15 Inter-county Tournament continued yesterday. Playing at the Everest Cricket Club ground, Essequibo stumbled, batting first, running into the spin twins Sankar and Ali Budhoo, who snared 4-25 and 3-26 in a clinical effort which inevitably strangled their opponents who were bowled out for 147 in 30 overs.Amidst the chaos, Essequibo No. 3 batsman Shazif Mohamed (32) and all-rounder Adesh Das (46) tried to get out of the blocks but failed, despite looking decent against the combined effort of the President’s XI bowlers.The chase was relatively simple for the eventual winners. Thanks to an unbroken half-century partnership between Sankar and his vice-captain Tulsiram Ramkarran, who ended on 25 apiece not out, their side finished on 148 for 2 in 40.5 overs. After bowling out their foes before lunch, President’s XI opener Afazul Kadir hit punched 5 fours in his top score of 40 while Tularam Chintimani (16) had a four to his credit as both players looked ominous from the start, with their team racing to 65-0 when lunch came.Upon resumption of play, Essequibo pulled things back with the wickets of both openers, who fell to the skill of Das in a short span of time. Although President’s XI lost two set wickets, the deficit was almost cleared with just 28 needed following the dismissals.Sankar, younger brother of former Guyana U-15 spinner Steven Sankar, and Ramkarran held their nerves during the chase.The duo played identical innings of grit and application, as neither batsmen scored a single boundary despite finding the singles with relative ease. Nevertheless, both players knuckled down and eventually steered their side to a most-needed rebound win, following their horrific loss to Berbice in Round 1.Meanwhile, Sankar for his 4 wickets and 25 runs was adjudged the Man-of-the-match.Earlier, it never looked promising for Essequibo, as the wily Sankar sliced through the entire top-order including Mohamed, who tried to keep the top together as he hit three fours. A brave effort from Das featured four fours and two sixes in a lower-order attempt to keep things alive following a catastrophic start; which ended on a high note for the President’s XI.At Lusignan, Salim Khan hit 39 and grabbed 3 wickets to help Berbice to another crushing win, this time hammering Demerara by 64 runs.Berbice were kept to 140 for 7 when their overs expired with Khan unbeaten on 39.Demerara then failed to gun down a relatively low target and were steamrolled for 76 runs during their chase. Round 3 continues tomorrow.last_img read more

Last time they played: Brand, Battier lead Blue Devils past Orangemen in Sweet 16

first_img Published on January 31, 2014 at 4:06 am Facebook Twitter Google+ Duke 80, Syracuse 67, March 21, 1998No. 5-seed Syracuse had a chance to upset No. 1-seed Duke and advance to the Elite Eight. 
The score was tied at 49 with 12:21 to go. SU was hanging around despite being the clear underdog. Duke’s roster was loaded with talented players Elton Brand, Shane Battier and Trajan Langdon. Syracuse had Jason Hart, Etan Thomas and Marius Janulis, but was outmatched on paper.The Orangemen didn’t let the difficult matchup faze them, and they nearly shocked the world. Duke (32-3) held SU off, though, beating Syracuse (26-9), 80-67, in front of 40,589 at Tropicana Field. Brand finished with 20 points and 14 rebounds, Battier added 14 and seven, and Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils used an 11-0 spurt to pull away in the second half. Duke’s offense averaged 85.1 points per game on the season, which was good for sixth in the country. But on Saturday, its defense was just as good. SU shot just 38.1 percent from the field and 61.9 percent from the line, struggling to generate any consistency against Duke’s aggressive defense. Syracuse finished with 16 turnovers, as the Blue Devils’ defense proved stymying when it mattered most.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor seven-and-a-half minutes, Syracuse was silenced. A 49-49 game quickly transformed into a 60-49 cushion for Duke. The game was nearly even the rest of the way, but it didn’t matter. Duke was going to the Elite Eight and the Orangemen were going home. Duke scored 40 points in both halves. Its consistent offensive output, coupled with steady defense, propelled it past SU. The Blue Devils pulled away thanks in part to a breakaway dunk by Chris Carrawell, who scored 10 points. Battier stole the ball and threw it up ahead to Carrawell, who flushed it home.William Avery hit a 3, which upped Duke’s lead during its pivotal run. Krzyzewski said Avery was crucial during the stretch and he helped Duke pull away. Duke burst out to a 14-5 lead at the start of the game, looking every bit the part of a No. 1 seed. SU had trouble converting around the basket, while the Blue Devils hit shots from all angles.The Orangemen embarked on a mini spurt, but Duke ensured SU never seized the lead. A 28-16 Duke advantage turned into a 28-24 game, thanks to an 8-0 run by SU. But the Blue Devils closed the half on a 12-6 tear to bump the lead back to double digits. Duke outrebounded SU by 11 and racked up more assists and blocks than the Orangemen. It was the kind of complete game necessary in the NCAA Tournament, and Duke’s superb all-around performance paved the way to victory.Jim Boeheim’s team couldn’t slow down the high-octane offense of Krzyzewski’s crew.Brand, who was the first pick in the 1999 NBA Draft the following year, was the best player on the floor. He dominated inside, hitting 10-of-14 field goals in 29 minutes. The Blue Devils fell to Kentucky, 86-84 in the next round, failing to advance to the Final Four. – compiled by Trevor Hass, asst. sports editor, tbhass@syr.edu, @TrevorHass Commentslast_img read more

Syracuse limits offensive playbook in 34-27 Spring Game win against defense

first_imgThe flashes of the future were interspersed during an afternoon filled with bubble screens.A 64-yard hook-up from Austin Wilson to Brisly Estime down the middle. A 54-yard completion from Wilson to Ashton Broyld, on a screen. An 18-yard connection from Mitch Kimble to Jeremiah Kobena, who ran all the way across the field before a Kendall Moore comeback block sprung him into the end zone.As a whole, the offense was just as simple as offensive coordinator George McDonald hinted it would be on Tuesday.But the glimpses of McDonald’s “full-bore blast” offense were there. And starting quarterback Terrel Hunt said there are plenty more to come.“There’s a ton of downfield stuff,” Hunt said. “I was a little upset because I didn’t realize we were on TV, so we didn’t want to show everything. I was a little frustrated like, ‘What’s going on?’ But then (McDonald) explained it to me.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHunt, McDonald and Co. left the 4,071 Syracuse fans in the Carrier Dome likely wanting to see more from the offense, but did enough to beat the defense 34-27 in Syracuse’s Spring Game on Saturday. Due to a banged-up offensive line, SU head coach Scott Shafer elected for an offense-versus-defense format — with a halftime punting challenge from Riley Dixon —rather than the Team White vs. Team Orange system the team has used in the past.Hunt finished 12-of-15 for 95 yards, orchestrating three first-half series, while Broyld hauled in eight catches for 126 yards and two touchdowns. The rising sophomore Wilson stole the show, completing all six of his passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns.“We got a lot of plays. We didn’t want to show the world what we’ve got, yet, because we don’t want anybody trying to steal our stuff,” Broyld said. “Right now we’re just working on the little things. The dinks and dunks, the get-the-first-down type plays. That’s what we’re getting good at.”There were dinks and dunks aplenty in the first half as the offense took a 17-5 lead into halftime behind a quick toss from freshman quarterback A.J. Long to Broyld on the right side and a well-placed fade from Kimble to Kobena.Junior kicker Alex Hodgkinson, who was brought on last year following Ryan Norton’s one-game suspension, connected on a 27-yard field goal and both PATs.After Dixon placed two of his four halftime punts inside the 10-yard line and one inside the 5 to bring the defense within 17-12, the offense stalled out on three straight drives.The first-down denials, valued at three points each, pushed the defense ahead 21-17.“I wanted to play more, but it was about just going out there and executing,” Hunt said.In his place, Long took the first two series and Kimble the third.Cornerbacks jumped screens. Ron Thompson sacked Long — they played touch for the quarterbacks — and Kimble fared no better.It wasn’t until Wilson hit Broyld on a 32-yard fly down the right side that the offense was reinvigorated.Two plays later, Kobena took a bubble screen for the circus touchdown.“We’re just trying to get the ball in space to our players,” McDonald said. “So if it’s a screen or a down-the-field shot, we’re really just trying to create one-on-one matchups across the field and just let our guys go out and play.”Estime showcased that best two possessions later, outrunning Julian Whigham on a post for 64 yards. A Hodgkinson 28-yarder finished the scoring for the offense.In total, McDonald said the unit churned out 79 plays.The pace was there. The potency is yet to be unveiled.
