Carter, Chase give Barbados Pride second win

first_imgCAVE HILL, Barbados (CMC) – Jonathan Carter and Test batsman Roston Chase carved out half-centuries as title-holders Barbados Pride marched to their second win of the Regional Super50 with a comfortable seven-wicket victory over English County Hampshire here yesterday.Asked to chase an uncomplicated 228 at 3Ws Oval, Pride overcame a stuttering start to reach their target in the 47th over, and follow up their convincing win over Trinidad and Tobago Red Force on Tuesday’s opening day.Left-hander Jonathan Carter, adjudged Man-of-the-Match, was at the forefront of the run chase, stroking a classy unbeaten 92 while Chase was also in fine nick with an unbeaten 87.The pair put on 168 in an unbroken fourth-wicket stand which pulled Pride around from the discomfort of 63 for three in the 16th over.Sent in earlier, Hampshire rallied from 29 for three in the 14th over to reach 227 for seven off their 50 overs, with Zimbabwean Sean Ervine top-scoring with 63, Joe Weatherley getting 51 and Lewis McManus, 47.Fast bowler Miguel Cummins extended his excellent wicket-taking form with three for 27 from eight overs.Hampshire had a less than ideal start, losing Calvin Dickinson (9), Thomas Alsop (12) and James Adams (3) cheaply inside the first 15 overs.However, Ervine and Weatherley combined in a 112-run, fourth-wicket partnership to prop up the innings and push the visitors towards a competitive total.Ervine struck five fours and a pair of sixes in a positive 68-ball knock while Weatherly faced 78 balls and belted two sixes.Pride clawed their way back into the contest when they removed both in successive overs. Ervine pushed a return catch back to off-spinner Chase while Weatherley cut veteran left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn to Chase at point.Tottering again on 147 for five at the end of the 37th, Hampshire were revived by McManus and Bradley Taylor (20) who put on a valuable 48 for the sixth wicket.McManus struck three fours and sixes in an entertaining 42-ball innings before becoming one of two wickets to fall to Cummins in successive overs late on.Pride then suffered an early setback in their run chase when Kevin Stoute nicked a catch behind off seamer Bradley Wheal, to fall for two with five on the board in the second over.Captain Kraigg Brathwaite added 33 with Shai Hope (34) but failed for the second straight innings, bowled middle stump by former West Indies speedster Fidel Edwards for 12 in the 10th over.And for the second successive innings, Hope got a start but failed to carry on and was caught at cover in the 16th over, driving left-arm seamer Christopher Wood.However, Carter arrived to put any lingering doubts about the result to rest, dominating the Hampshire attack in an innings which required 113 balls and contained seven fours.Playing with quiet assurance, the out-of-favour Windies limited overs batsman brought up his half-century off 67 balls with three fours in the 30th over, but ran out of time with three figures beckoning.Chase, meanwhile, was no less authoritative, counting seven fours and two sixes in a 93-ball innings.Pride will chase their third straight win when they take on Windward Islands Volcanoes in their third match at Kensington Oval tomorrow.last_img read more

Cats top Cards 58-50 to remain perfect

first_imgIf a punch in the face is what the top-ranked University of Kentucky basketball team needed, as coach John Calipari said this week, fourth-ranked rival Louisville was happy to oblige on Saturday at the KFC Yum! Center.The two undefeated teams bloodied each other – quite literally, in UK point guard Tyler Ulis’ case – during a slugfest that featured few easy buckets and tension from tipoff to buzzer. But Kentucky took every shot and delivered blows back and finally pulled away late for a 58-50 victory.“That was a punch in the mouth,” Calipari said. “Everyone has made this like the end-all game and these young kids came in here and they performed. They weren’t rattled and they stayed focused.” In doing so, the Cats (13-0) might’ve cleared the tallest hurdle remaining in the regular season. They’ve now beaten five teams that were ranked in at least one of the major polls, including three in the current Top 10. Talk of a perfect season will get louder after UK won its road opener for the first time in five seasons. UNDER PRESSURE: Freshmen come through for Wildcats INSTANT ANALYSIS: Takeaways from courtside at the KFC Yum! Center WHAT WE LEARNED: Adam Himmelsbach breaks down UK’s win GAME REWIND: Tweets, videos, analysis as it happenedBut the Cardinals (11-1) made the visitors earn it. The Wildcats turned it over 10 times in the first half and shot just 37 percent before the break. Every bucket came at a price, which was pain.“I didn’t just get punched,” said freshman forward Karl-Anthony Towns, who had 10 points and nine rebounds. “I probably caught some hooks and some haymakers. Good thing I was watching ‘Tyson’ last night, so I learned how to handle it.“But we needed this. We needed this badly. We haven’t had a game like this in a while.”Not since UK’s exhibition loss to the Dominican Republic national team this summer, in Towns’ estimation. Louisville, down as many as a dozen in the final five minutes, managed a moral victory in becoming the first collegiate team to lose by single digits against these Cats. UK’s lead was only four at halftime, and even after the Cats quickly stretched that margin to eight after the break, Louisville surged. With Kentucky star Willie Cauley-Stein sidelined because of foul trouble, the Cards cut the deficit to two with 8:48 remaining. But that’s when the smallest player in a brutal game took over. Ulis, the 5-foot-9 freshman who took an elbow that opened a cut above his right eye and sent blood streaming down his face in the first half, calmly dissected U of L’s smothering defense.“They played rough,” Ulis said, but “we were ready.” Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Ulis finished with a team-high 14 points and although he had just two assists, he made even fewer mistakes. While starting point guard Andrew Harrison had six turnovers, Ulis and fellow freshman guard Devin Booker had none in 54 combined minutes.Ulis scored a dozen of his points after halftime, looking like a bandaged boxer but dancing circles around the Cardinals. He required three stitches after the game.“You’ve got to leave it all on the floor. Tyler Ulis always does that,” Towns said. “He almost gave his eye today for the game. When you have a person like that, it motivates all of us to see that if he can take it, we can take it.” Louisville made one final run at UK and had a chance to slash the lead to five with 1:32 to go when Wayne Blackshear was fouled shooting a 3-pointer. But he made only one free throw and the Wildcats finished the job. They held the Cardinals to 15-of-58 shooting and trailed just once, 13-12, for a total of 94 seconds.New CardsHQ and CatsHQ fan apps launchedAfter the lowest-scoring Kentucky-Louisville game since 1922, and after seeing his Cards manage only one assist to go with nine turnovers, coach Rick Pitino called the Cats “one of the greatest defensive teams I’ve seen in my 40 years.” That begs the question: Can anyone else push this Kentucky team to the brink in the regular season? Only Southeastern Conference games remain, and the league doesn’t have another team in the Top 25. And on Saturday, the Wildcats won despite Cauley-Stein producing just five points and six rebounds. They beat a top-five team on the road even when starting guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison combined to make just 3 of 16 shots. “Oh, we’ll be challenged,” Calipari swore afterward, adding that he isn’t worried about his team thinking this was the final test. “There was some disappointment. Willie and Andrew were disappointed in how they played. Aaron wasn’t exactly happy about how he played either.”But Kentucky’s coach, now 7-1 against Pitino since coming to Lexington, admitted he wakes up every day “whistling and skipping” because he has a team talented enough to overwhelm, deep enough to exhaust and unselfish enough to share.Then Saturday proved these Cats are also tough enough to take a punch.

Window closes with Austin and Phillips still at QPR

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook Charlie Austin and Matty Phillips remain QPR players after the transfer window closed without any late bids being made for them.Striker Austin had been widely tipped to leave Loftus Road this summer, with several clubs reported to be pursuing a deal to sign him.However, only Leicester, who had an offer rejected, and Crystal Palace, who were put off by the £15m asking price, made approaches. AdChoices广告In any case, Austin indicated that he would not be keen on a move to either club.He is in the final year of his contract and will potentially be able to move on a free transfer at the end of the season – an outcome QPR will try to avoid by making another offer of a new contract.Rangers rejected a bid from West Brom for Phillips in July and insisted they wanted £10m for winger.They were keen to offload some players before the deadline but were unable to agree loan deals for Sandro and Leroy Fer after discussions with AC Milan and PSV Eindhoven respectively.And there were no takers for Junior Hoilett or Armand Traore, who were made available on free transfers.Meanwhile, Italian defender Gabriele Angella completed his move from Watford, joining the R’s on loan until the end of the season.

The red with volt trim on red jerseys and vice versa are just horrible. I really hope they go back to a more traditional look as far as colors and maybe come up with something a little livelier as far as uniform design. Plain jerseys and pants with no stripes and a monotone design are so lame.  4,499 Posted January 30, 2017 Endzones look good.

Also I think it would be cool to have 5 different uniforms for each conference and let the fans vote from week 1 to week 8 for the uniforms. I think each of those ideas would bring some extra viewers. This is a gladiator sport and if you put something extra out there these guys will play and people will watch!

Newcastle United don’t want permanent signing – Magpies ready to negotiate…

first_imgFollowing a half-season loan spell at Newcastle United, the 24-year-old is still to have a clear picture of what his future will be.Sky Italia claims that the Magpies’ ‘new board’ are willing to negotiate with Inter Milan for a new loan spell.It’s made clear that this isn’t the only option for the player, because in case there is no deal between Newcastle and the Nerazzurri, then there are some German clubs who could go for him in the coming weeks.Embed from Getty ImagesThat’s all Sky Italia has to say, but most Italian websites such as Calcio Mercato are taking the news from another angle.They say this is a bad sign for Inter Milan, since it means that Newcastle have decided not to use the €20m buying option to sign the player.Lazario made 13 appearances for Newcastle this year, and has been mostly a rotation player in Steve Bruce’s side.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Rangers Send Eight Players to ‘B’ Team for Low Productivity

first_img*Place attackers on 40 per cent pay cut, source for quality marksmenIn a bid to stop the not too impressive run in the ongoing Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) season, the management of Rangers International F.C of Enugu has sent some of its players to the ‘B’ team of the club while also sourcing for quality attackers to beef up the squad.After an emergency meeting on Monday at the club’s camp in Enugu, the technical crew and management of the Flying Antelopes announced the decision to send the players to the ‘B’ team, stressing that it was part of the ‘Performance-based’ agreement signed by both parties. According to the Media Officer of the Team, Norbert Okolie, all attackers in the team have been placed on 40 per cent less of their monthly salaries until they improve on their scoring ability.Speaking, the General Manager of Rangers, Prince Davidson Owumi, stated that the situation in the team currently led to the measure so as to bring out the best from the players stressing, “I must say that this measure of sending some of the players to the ‘B’ team is for them to catch up with the form we saw in them before contracting them in the first place.“We need to start winning games and move out from where we currently occupy to where we rightly belong in the Nigerian top flight league,” stressed the former Rangers forward.In the meantime, technical crew of the club have started the hunt for quality strikers to beef up the squad to effectively challenge for honour in the remaining part of the season.It will be recalled that the seven-time Nigeria league champions started the season on a slow pace that has seen them win only one league game, drawn three and lost five of the nine matches played in the NPFL 2019/2020 season to be placed at the bottom of the 20-team log.A highly charged Rangers will today in a mid-week clash trade tackles with neighbors, F.C Ifeanyiubah in a match-day 13, NPFL 2019/2020 fixture at the main bowl of the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, with victory the sole target for the coach Salisu Yusuf wards after painfully losing 2-1 to Heartland F.C of Owerri in Okigwe at the weekend.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Two homicides linked to killing of psychiatrist who consulted on JonBenet case: Police

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PHOENIX) — The killing of two paralegals has been tied to the recent murder of the notable forensic psychiatrist who worked on the JonBenet Ramsey case in Phoenix the day before, Arizona police said.Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, were both shot about 2:15 p.m. on Friday near the law office where they worked as paralegals.One of the women was shot in the head and attempted to get help by flagging down a bus parked at a nearby intersection near the law firm the law firm Burt, Feldman, Greneir, whose offices are located on East 1st near North 75th Streets in the Old Town section of town.That woman was rushed to a local hospital and pronounced dead, according to a police release.Responding officers then found another woman who was wounded, police said.On Saturday, investigators in Scottsdale say the killings of Sharp and Anderson were tied to the murder of the psychiatrist, Steven Pitt.“Our investigation has determined that this double homicide is related to the shooting of Steven Pitt on May 31, 2018, in Phoenix,” they said.Pitt, a 59-year-old father of two children, was found shot to death outside his Phoenix office on Thursday night.Cops noted that there they were responding to reports of a third homicide on Saturday a neighborhood known as The Greens at Gainey Ranch — some 17 minutes away from the law office crime scene.So far, it’s unclear if it is related to the other three murders.He earned acclaim as a forensic psychiatrist who consulted with law enforcement on a number of high-profile cases, including the mysterious death of JonBenet Ramsey back in 1996.On Thursday, witnesses told Phoenix police they heard an argument between two people outside his office followed by gunfire, according to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV.A $1,000 reward has been offered for the capture of Pitt’s killer.Police describe the suspected shooter as a bald Caucasian man wearing a dark hat with a short brim.Steven Pitt & Associates is headquartered in Phoenix, but Pitt worked on a number of nationally known cases, including Ramsey’s murder. The murder of the 6-year-old beauty pageant competitor found dead in the basement of her family’s Boulder, Colorado, home has never been solved.Pitt was brought on by Boulder police and the district attorney to consult on the case in February 1997.In a 1999 profile of Pitt by the Phoenix New Times, centered around the Ramsey investigation, the psychiatrist was described as “a street-smart, openly ambitious wiseguy who seems most comfortable helping detectives sort out the psychopathology that has led someone — known or unknown — to commit a crime.”After Pitt’s consultation on the “Baseline Killer,” the suspect, Mark Goudeau, was convicted and sentenced to death in 2011 for nine murders.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
