FEU also got solid games from graduating player Ron Dennison and Richard Escoto.FEU coach Olsen Racela said it would take more than their performance last Sunday to overcome the Eagles in the decider.“It was our best game so far and we’re hoping that it happens in Game 2,” said Racela, a rookie coach in the UAAP.“Actually, I told the players that we’re peaking at the right time so we’re looking forward to the game on Wednesday.”The Tamaraws entered the Final Four with an even 7-7 record, but looked sharper on both ends of the floor against the Eagles, whose only other loss came against fierce rival La Salle.ADVERTISEMENT CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA “The tough games we went through in the elimination round helped us (against Ateneo),” said Racela.“But then again, it will be about defending Ateneo’s disciplined offense.

Fans Poking Fun At Wildcats Recruit Isaiah Briscoe After He Accidentally Suggests Derrick Rose Went To Kentucky

first_imgJohn Calipari, to his credit, has had a great deal of success putting his college players in the NBA. While most of Cal’s representatives in the league hail from Kentucky, there are a still a few – like Tyreke Evans and Derrick Rose – leftover from his Memphis days.Wednesday night, during the McDonald’s All American Game, top UK recruit Isaiah Briscoe was asked by ESPN’s Jay Williams why he chose to play for Coach Cal. Briscoe’s response involved him listing off the names of numerous NBA stars coached by Calipari. And while he was probably just mixing up his words, he did suggest that Rose had played for Kentucky.Fans on social media, predictably, have been having a field day with the quote, perhaps unfairly. Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose”— The Golden Jew (@GoldenJew) April 2, 2015Isaiah Briscoe: Derrick Rose went to that other school called Kentucky which is actually called Memphis— Connor Gross (@Cgross920) April 2, 2015Isaiah Briscoe realizes Rose & Evans played for Cal at Memphis right? #McDonaldsAllAmericanGame— Jacob McCallister (@RockChalkJacob) April 2, 2015“@GoldenJew: Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose”” pic.twitter.com/UQZQ12VGHb— Christopher Burr (@HeisenBURRRg) April 2, 2015“@GoldenJew: Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose”” pic.twitter.com/mI1tN9g9mc— Keep It Real 2015 (@A2K4Life) April 2, 2015Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose” pic.twitter.com/rSMkVTx4UK— Keyser Söze (@WhoButMe_) April 2, [email protected]: Kentucky Commit, Isaiah Briscoe: “I chose Kentucky because of UK greats like Derrick Rose” pic.twitter.com/nCiItEK0Wx— Bryan Evans (@BryGuy2103) April 2, 2015Briscoe is clearly aware that Calipari coached at Memphis, so perhaps he just got nervous live on television.

Bucks look to spike Penn State from nations top spot

The Ohio State women’s volleyball team is picking up momentum. It recorded its first Big Ten weekend home sweep in more than three years,    After defeating both Purdue and Indiana 3-1 in last weekend’s matchups, the Buckeyes climbed from No. 36 to No. 32.  The Buckeyes are 17-6 overall, 5-5 in Big Ten conference play and No. 5 in the conference. The weekend’s biggest contributor, Ashley Hughes, has been named Big Ten Co-Player of the week.  On Friday against Purdue, Hughes posted 48 assists, seven digs and five kills.  It was a tough performance to beat, but she did just that. Saturday against Indiana, Hughes achieved two career highs, with 53 assists and 19 digs.  Hughes has been the starting setter in eight matches and has played in 12. She will be an asset in the team’s trip to No. 1 Penn State.The Buckeyes are entering the second wave of conference play on a positive note. Top-ranked Penn State is 22-0 and has held onto the No. 1 spot this season. The Buckeyes lost to Penn State on Oct. 7 in the first round of conference play. This time around, the Buckeyes have improved in hitting percentages and have employed a smoother offense.  The Buckeyes average 16.81 points per set, just behind the 19.46 points per set Penn State averages. However, the Buckeyes face bigger challenges. Buckeye opponents are hitting .180 and Penn State’s opponents just .091.    The Buckeyes fall just short of Penn State with 13.29 kills and 12.20 assists per set on average. They take the edge over Penn State with 1.58 aces and 13.24 digs on average per set.  It’s easy to compare two teams’ stats, but action on the floor determines the stronger team. The Buckeyes have the aggressive defense that is required to challenge a team with an undefeated record.   The Nittany Lions of Penn State host the Buckeyes at 7 p.m. The match will be televised by the Big Ten Network. read more

DEC Continues Working With Kenai On Beach CleanUp Efforts

first_imgNancy Sonafrank with the Division of Water: “The high bacteria had been found during previous fisheries and we think it’s mostly related to nearby seagulls that are feeding off of the fish as well.”  Fish waste can also be deposited at other Kenai Peninsula transfer facilities, including those in Cooper Landing, Kasilof, and Ninilchik, but in smaller quantities; all fish waste must be bagged in plastic trash bags with a limit of two bags dropped off per day. For the time being, the DEC reminds individuals fishing on the beaches to dispose of their fish waste properly, and to thoroughly clean their catches before consuming them. This comes after the DEC announced that water quality samples collected on Kenai Beaches, on July 3 and 13, contained levels above Alaska’s enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria limit for recreation and harvesting for consumption of raw fish and shellfish. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has been joining efforts with the City of Kenai to help clean up fish waste left behind by dipnetters and beach users. The Central Peninsula Landfill located at Mile 98.5 Sterling Highway 2.5 miles south of Soldotna accepts fish waste free of charge from 8am to 5:45pm seven days a week. Sonafrank: “Seagulls hang around to collect fish waste discarded on the beaches and then transfer the fecal bacteria into to the waters and on the beaches.” The DEC will conduct additional testing to determine if their efforts to keep these beaches cleaner have worked until the end of the summer. According to Sonafrank, most, if not all, the bacteria found during the testing is from seagulls.last_img read more
