The Ateneo defense forced a season-high 28 turnovers on La Salle, which made a measly three assists the entire game.The Tigers, on the other hand, finally succeeded in trying to prove it was great at one thing the past five games: Shoot.All those attempts from beyond the arc finally found their mark as UST made 16 triples in an 80-66 conquest of University of the East in the other match.After bricking triple attempts in a three-game slide, the Tigers watched their run-and-gun style bear fruit for their second win in six outings. And all it took, apparently, was a break from basketball.“In the two days before our game I told them that we’re going to have a break and forget about basketball,” said coach Aldin Ayo, who used the birthday celebration of one of the team’s managers, Chuck Dumlao, as an excuse to send the Tigers on a spa and buffet break.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal LATEST STORIES Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award MOST READ Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Alaska adds to SMB’s troubles “We just focused on what we had to do and we did it well,” said Ateneo assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga.And what the Eagles do particularly well is play defense.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissLike it did to UST in a 32-point rout earlier in its schedule, Ateneo held La Salle to just 18 made field goals the entire game en route to putting pressure on undefeated leader Adamson (5-1).“We had a strategy on playing defense and that was the big emphasis coming into this game,” added Arespacochaga.

by ,

first_imgAn 85-year-old Corentyne, Berbice woman has been raped while in bed. Reports are the woman is also visually impaired and has difficulty hearing.Guyana Times was told that the woman, who was at the time in adult pampers, was left unconscious after the incident occurred sometime at about 04:00h Sunday morning.According to information received, the woman lives alone in her Corentyne home but one of her children lives close by. Following the incident, a relative said the perpetrator gained access to the house by breaking a window to the bedroom where the elderly woman was asleep. During the alleged attack, the woman lost consciousness.However, when she regained consciousness, she was heard screaming by her son who lives in close proximity.“I lie down on the bed; I cover from head to foot. I wasn’t asleep and suddenly somebody come and pull the coverlet and pull out the pampers and jump on me… ah feel like ah suffocating and ah say a can’t do that thing…,” the elderly woman recalled.The relative said the Police were contacted at about 06:00h on Sunday by the woman’s son. According to the woman’s son, when he went to the Police station, he was told the Police will respond promptly and he should go and wait on them. However, according to the young man, it was not until midday that the officers arrived.“She was in pain and really wanted to go to the hospital but I said the Police have to come first and they have to take her to the hospital because her eyes were swollen; blood was in her eyes. Her entire body was in pain. If we go to move her she start screaming because of the pain. The whole place was with blood; all on the pampers and on the bed,” he said.When the Police finally arrived, they took her to the Port Mourant Hospital where it was confirmed that she was sexually assaulted.He further related that when he inquired form the Police Officers at the hospital what was the next step, he was told that the matter is now in the hands of the Police and they were going to take it from there.According to the man, he made a request for the Police to commence their investigation at the scene of the crime and suggested that they could check for fingerprints.“They say everything is in the Police hands and they will do what is necessary, so ah say that I will keep updated. When I went the next day then they told me that I have to take my mother to the station in order for them to take a report.”The woman was eventually taken to the Police station on Tuesday where statements were taken from both the elderly woman and her son at the Whim Police Station.He said he left his telephone number with the officers and have not heard from them since.

Jawalla residents urged to embrace rebuilding process

by ,

first_imgResidents of the Upper Mazaruni riverine community of Jawalla, Region Seven (Cuyuni/Mazaruni), are now regrouping their lives after a freak storm that struck on Friday last at about 15:30h had brought them heavy winds and rainfall, along with lightning and thunderstorms, destroying 34 buildings in the area. The roofs of some buildings were damaged while other buildings collapsed entirely, one resulting in the death of 27-year-old Marsha Jordan, who was seven months pregnant at the time. The death of Jordan and her unborn child has plunged the entire community into a state of shock and mourning.When tragedy struck, Jordan and her two children were sheltering from the heavy rains under a house, when a strong wind caused the building’s support to weaken and it came crashing down. Jordan died instantly from severe head and neck injuries sustained, while her two children managed to escape death with minor injuries.According to residents, freak storms like this one occur often but have never previously resulted in the death of anyone. Minister within the Indigenous Peoples Affairs Ministry, Valerie Garrido-Lowe, and Minister Dawn Hastings-Williams met with residents and the family of the deceased Jordan to offer them comfort and support.Major Sean Welcome of the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) and Dr. Shamdeo Persaud, Chief Medical Officer of the Ministry of Public Health, accompanied the ministers to determine how their respective organisations could aid in the rebuilding of the community after the natural disaster.“We were talking about how perhaps we can bring engineers — the army engineers — to come and look at the structures of the houses, to see how we can build strong houses to withstand these freak storms that happen every now and then. I understand now it is increasing,” Minister Garrido-Lowe is quoted by the Department of Public information as saying.Upon assessing damaged buildings, especially those that collapsed, the team recognised the need for a redesign in the way wooden structures are built in the area.The building which crushed Marsha Jordan was considered a ‘disaster waiting to happen’. The elevated building was placed on wooden blocks approximately four feet off the ground.With the structures being redesigned, Jawalla residents are being urged to play their part in this rebuilding process.The CDC and the Indigenous Peoples Affairs Ministry contributed building materials to the village, and the toshao has been tasked with mobilising men from the community to undertake the task of rebuilding Jawalla.The two ministers also committed to being a part of the rebuilding process by making individual contributions.Meanwhile, a new home is to be constructed for Jordan’s husband, Gilbert Jordan, and the two children, Carmeline and Zalepha Jordan. “It would be a good thing if the men of the community come together, saw boards, and let us build a new house for Gilbert Jordan and his daughters.” one of the ministers expressed.The Civil Defence Commission would be supplying the village with relief supplies, including foodstuff, cleaning agents, and other items needed for basic living.last_img read more

Express FC chairperson Nakiwala courts SportPesa

by ,

first_imgFOOTBALL — Express FC chairperson Florence Nakiwala has put the recent controversial handling of a former player behind her by raising efforts to woo SportPesa into the country and Wankulukuku.Nakiwala who is also the Minister for Youth and Children Affairs was in attendance in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, to watch Gor Mahia play English Premier League side Everton in an off-season friendly match organised by SportPesa last week.Sources say the Red Eagles supremo was in Dar to personally extend an invitation  to SportPesa to venture into Uganda.It is reported that talks between Uganda government and SportPesa are proceeding albeit at a snails’ pace and if an agreement is achieved, the betting company will soon launch in Uganda.While a deal is vaunted as a nationwide cause, Nakiwala has exploited this chance to sell the prospect of SportPesa sponsoring Express FC.Over the course of weeks, Nakiwala is reported to have met with SportPesa chief executive Ronald Karauri but that it is still too early to draw conclusions on whether the betting firm will open operations in the country.The Kenyan betting firm are the official sponsors of English side Everton FC and Nakiwala and the Wankulukuku hierarchy are hoping that the financial muscles of the firm could change FC’s fortunes.The Red Eagles signed a Sh300-million sponsorship deal with pay TV giants DStv last year, and there was a tinge of feeling that their financial constraints that had become fodder for the press had been cured for a foreseeable future.But the 2016/17 season, in which Express FC finished fifth and struggled to pay their coaching staff and players for months painted a different image. The massive exodus of the bulk of first team players from last season’s squad has been blamed on poor remunerations.The lack of enough funds has been cited as the main reason the Red Eagles have not yet started pre-season training with the beginning of the new season a month away.Commentslast_img read more
