PITTSBURGH –– The unimaginable 17-0 run stunned the record crowd of 12,925 in the Petersen Events Center. For the Oakland Zoo — the deafening Pittsburgh student section — raucous became reticent.‘We made as good a comeback as you’re probably going to make,’ Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said.It wasn’t enough.A team-defining comeback, a comeback for the ages, was never completed. Syracuse never led in its 74-66 loss to Pittsburgh. An Orange team roared back from a 19-0 deficit to start the game with a 17-0 run of its own. But without its leading scorer, Kris Joseph, the 66-54 Syracuse run after the horrid start proved to be short.Pittsburgh forward Nasir Robinson’s 21 points muscled the Panthers (18-1, 6-0 Big East) to a win in a battle of Big East heavyweights. It was the early exploitation of the middle of SU’s lauded 2-3 zone that helped the Panthers off to the 19-0 start.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU (18-1, 5-1) fought, but its defense continually allowed those physical body blows to its 2-3 zone for the rest of the game. Still, Orange point guard Scoop Jardine felt his team made a statement.‘We were right there,’ Jardine said. ‘And that is one thing — we are going to take credit from this loss.’Credit is due. After eight minutes, the game felt lost. Then came the improbable comeback. SU assistant coach Mike Hopkins danced on the sideline to sustain and spur SU’s 2-3 zone. It began because of a lone Scoop Jardine 3-pointer, eight minutes after the game started, a shot Jardine said he knew he was taking as he dribbled up the court. It thrived thanks to two Syracuse freshmen, C.J. Fair and Dion Waiters, who fortified Syracuse with half of the team’s initial 24 first-half points.And it came out of nowhere. In the most ominous of situations, perhaps, any college basketball team has faced all year. In the Panthers sold-out house, where it has never lost a single game to a top-five team. The house Brad Wanamaker said was at its loudest ever Monday night. Without its injured star player in Joseph.But with a sudden jolt of heady team-ball, Syracuse did the unthinkable: clawed back in the Zoo and made what was quickly becoming a laugher into a game again. SU reeled off those 17 unanswered points, silencing the crowd.‘These kids showed a lot of heart,’ Hopkins said. ‘Playing without our leading scorer Kris, the way these guys battled.’Without Joseph, the Orange made a lost situation become a legendary first half. Syracuse trailed 31-27 at halftime. The Orange tied the game at 41-41 with 13:52 left, thanks to a 3-pointer by Joseph’s replacement, James Southerland.Alas, it wasn’t enough. The hole SU dug was too deep for Fair’s team-high 16 points to help the Orange completely come out from. Jardine’s cold-blooded 3-pointer to put SU on the board for the first time with a little under 12 minutes left in the first half — and his clutch barrage of second-half 3s — were for naught. And a suffocating late-game press was unleashed too late.‘Every time we were knocking at the door, we just couldn’t get over the hump,’ Jardine said. ‘Down three. Down one. Down three. Tied.’Lost was never found. The Panthers ripped apart the heart of the SU zone with 24 first-half points in the paint.But the Orange soon found its heart. Without Joseph, though, the scoring that was needed wasn’t there for SU. No amount of freshmen magic would get SU to a lead. Never mind a win.And not enough wishing or dancing from Hopkins would claw SU all the way back. With his final jump up on the sidelines, Hopkins turned and spun as Ashton Gibbs hit a 3 to keep the Panthers up nine with 6:33 left. Five two-footed stomps followed from Hopkins.He couldn’t dance or stomp out what Syracuse did to itself. Even if it reclaimed its heart after a start during which the Orange looked lost in the Zoo. Syracuse couldn’t complete the comeback.‘Chalk this up as a great learning experience,’ Hopkins said. ‘This place is as loud as it gets in college basketball.’[email protected] Comments Published on January 16, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+

Facebook Twitter Google+ Kyan Hillsman wanted snacks. Quentin Hillsman wanted sleep.After Syracuse found out it would be playing Chattanooga in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Hillsman, SU’s head coach, guaranteed a win. He planned to watch 80 percent of the Mocs’ 32 games this season.And every day this week Hillsman has gone to bed just before 3 a.m., only to be woken up three hours later by his hungry 3-year-old son.“It’s tough when you’re up all night watching tape,” Hillsman said. “And your son’s alarm clock is between 5:10 and 6 a.m.”Hillsman has been in this situation before. He’s been to the NCAA tournament twice, but as has been the case for all five of the program’s past tournament games, the Orange didn’t advance.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Saturday, No. 6-seed Syracuse (22-9, 10-6 Atlantic Coast) will have another opportunity to make history when it faces No. 11-seed Chattanooga (29-3, 18-0 Southern) on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in Lexington, Ky., on ESPN2.“This is where you make your name,” SU guard Brittney Sykes said. “Yes, last year we made our name. We dipped our toe in the water, but now we’re trying to run through the water.”Sykes said that after the Orange lost to Creighton as a No. 7 seed in the first round last season, the feeling in the locker room was more of motivation than disappointment.It hurt to come up short, but SU already wanted another opportunity to get back for another shot.And now it has that.“We’ve been there. We’ve felt how it tasted,” Sykes said. “We’re more hungry to be there than a team who’s going for the first time.“We have to play 20-plus games just to get back to that same spot and change history.”On Wednesday’s practice at the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center with the team’s flight to Kentucky a day away, Hillsman was barking out instructions about what his team could see against Chattanooga.Thirty-four does this. Eleven does that. Make sure you don’t leave 44 open. He’s been preparing nonstop for the past 48 hours, and he’s making sure his players know as much as he does.“I feel like there is a bigger picture, but all of us are always focused on the first game,” SU guard Rachel Coffey said. “You want to get the first game done, then after that you worry about the second game.”Coffey makes it sound easy. But in the 43-year history of the program, there never has been a “second game” to play.On Monday, Hillsman went up to the second level of the Melo Center to watch the men’s basketball team practice. He wanted to watch Jim Boeheim, a coach that has led his team to 52 NCAA Tournament wins and the 2003 national championship.He saw him go through his game prep. He looked at the banners up around the center, almost all of which reflect Boeheim’s legacy and the team he’s built.Saturday, he has another chance to capture a program-building win and possibly raise a banner in the Carrier Dome.It’s a program Hillsman has built almost single-handedly, but the hard work is not yet tangible.A win in the NCAA tournament isn’t the end goal, but a start — and he’s willing to lose sleep over it.“Obviously you’re going into a situation where you play this game, and you win you play again, and you lose and you’re done,” Hillsman said. “So that kind of revs up the intensity a little bit.“I know we are more prepared at this point than we’ve ever been going into an NCAA tournament game.” Comments Published on March 19, 2014 at 11:40 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3
6 Jan 2020 ‘It’s a special feeling’- Dougherty’s message to class of 2020 Tags: England Boys’ Squad, England Girl’s, England Men’s Team, england women Nick Dougherty knows all about representing England and winning at the top level.Now the three-times European Tour winner and lead presenter at Sky Sports has encouraged the England Golf class of 2020 to pull on their kit with pride and never take the feeling for granted.Before embarking on a hugely successful professional career and then making the switch into broadcasting with consummate ease, Dougherty came through the ranks at England Golf.A three-times Faldo Series winner in his teens, Dougherty also helped England win the World Junior Championships in 1998 and 1999.In 1999, Dougherty also won the individual title at the World Junior Championships in Japan while that same year his England team were crowned European champions.His career as a boys’ and then men’s international is catalogued in the record books and also in framed photographs dotted about the hallways of the England Golf offices at Woodhall Spa.A look at the boys’ team portraits hanging on the walls brought a smile to Dougherty’s face as he returned to Lincolnshire last month to address the 2019 Performance Conference.“You can see from these photos I was a little bit behind on the fitness side!” said Dougherty with a laugh.But if fitness was a work in progress, then the golf game displayed by a teenage Dougherty following his debut in 1997 was already on track.Dougherty looks back with satisfaction at his days wearing the white of England in Home Internationals, European and World championship events.The 37-year-old says that those fortunate to presently be coming through the system at Woodhall Spa and the National Golf Centre should appreciate what an opportunity they have earned.“It really was the good old days,” said Dougherty with an undeniable pride in his voice.“My first cap with the boys’ squad was at Royal North Devon in 1997 (pictured above).“When you represent your country, it’s special.“Playing for your county is great, but I quickly realised playing for England meant there weren’t many people of my age better than me.“It was the start of me believing I could be a golfer for a living.“Isn’t it demoralising now to think it was a different century!“We won the Europeans, the Worlds and the Home Internationals in that time.“Ironically, the Home Internationals were the hardest to win as Scotland were particularly strong back then – to win all three was great.“For us it was special to represent your nation.“It’s one of the things you miss as a pro.“Even playing Seve Trophies with GB&I isn’t the same as representing England even though it’s a big honour.“Ryder Cup is another level again but it’s a strange vibe representing Europe.“England was always slightly ahead of the other unions and that made sure there was plenty of needle.“The matches against Scotland were massive but the games against Wales and Ireland were similar.“It was fun being part of a great team and it was the start of the journey for me. Today’s players should embrace it too.”England Golf moved to Woodhall Spa in 1995 and Dougherty was one of the first groups to train at the new facility.“It was a more professional set-up to anything I had seen at that stage in my career,” he added.“England broke the game down. Until then the plan was ‘hit it, find it and hit it again’.“Prior to joining up with England we were also told to make sure you have a big meal before you go out on the course so you don’t run out of gas!“Breaking it down to fitness and psychology was all part of my learning and what I went on to do as a professional.”Dougherty is now immersed in the professional game thanks to his TV work with Sky.However, he keeps tabs on the talent coming through thanks to conversations on tour with England Golf coach and Tommy Fleetwood’s short-game guru, Graham Walker (pictured with Nick above).“You hear of the kids and look at the big events and see a Ben Schmidt or a Conor Gough coming through,” added Dougherty.“At the same age as Ben, I won the salver at the Brabazon which I thought was special – it’s not as special as winning the main thing!“These events are a real pre-cursor to what they are about to achieve.“You can only beat the best around you. You can’t compare a Ben Schmidt to a Tommy Fleetwood, but you can compare him to his peers.“Maybe he will be the next one to challenge Tommy.“It’s more competitive now and that’s a testament to the coaches at England Golf and other unions.“It’s about creating the superstars of tomorrow as well as celebrating the amateur game.“The access to coaches, science and learning is here so it’s no surprise to see more players coming through.“If it was the same as we were doing 20 years ago then we have a problem.“Not everything we did 20 years ago was wrong, but the game has changed and the way information is used and transferred to the younger players is the right way.“The England Golf coaches have the right balance and that is shown by the results.”
(Visited 71 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 At a recent panel, scientists doubted whether it would be a good idea to revive the human species if it went extinct.They call themselves experts. In a report on Live Science, Laura Geggel says that five ‘experts’ engaged in a debate about ‘de-extinction’ of animals (resurrecting extinct animals back through genetics). Things got interesting during the Q&A when someone asked about another mammal, Homo sapiens. Geggel describes the response,If humans were to go extinct, would it be ethical to revive the species, to allow us to live once more on this blue planet?It’s a tough call, but maybe not, according to a panel of five experts who debated “de-extinction” during the annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City on Wednesday (March 29). Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the AMNH Hayden Planetarium, moderated the debate, which honors Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), a biochemist and science-fiction writer who famously wrote the “three laws of robotics.”The only beings that would be able to de-extinctify humans, though, would be mythical space aliens or further-evolved earthlings who understand genetics and know how to perform genetic engineering. What would they do with us low-lifes?Were another intelligent life to de-extinctify humans, would they put us in a zoo-like environment? For a sentient being, that would be “extremely frightening and scary,” said panelist Greg Kaebnick, a research scholar at the Hastings Center, an independent bioethics research institute in Garrison, New York. “The animal welfare concerns just get overwhelming.”Kaebnick must have forgotten that some of his evolutionist predecessors did exactly that. In 1904, led by hard-core Darwinian Samuel Verner, evolutionists exhibited Ota Benga, a black man from an African tribe of pygmies (fully human), into a zoo (see report by Jerry Bergman on Creation.com). He was exhibited as a “primitive man” or an “emblematic savage,” scarcely more than an ape, even though Mr. Benga later got married, learned English, was baptized a Christian. The dehumanizing treatment he had received at the hands of evolutionists, however, left him scarred for life, and he eventually committed suicide, Bergman says.We can tell it wouldn’t be real live African apes that we are familiar with who would bring back humans from extinction. Chimpanzees don’t appreciate Beethoven—or even Justin Bieber, for that matter. Phys.org says that music played to apes, including “work by Mozart, Beethoven, Adele and Justin Bieber,” fell on deaf ears. Contrary to previous reports, “Playing music to captive chimpanzees has no positive effect on their welfare, researchers have concluded.”Yes, it would be “extremely frightening and scary” to imagine Planet of the Apes soldiers torturing captive humans with Justin Bieber music all day. But we ask, how did ‘animal welfare concerns’ evolve? Is that not a question of morals? If morals evolve, then one could imagine a moral system emerging on Planet of the Apes that considers torturing humans with Justin Bieber as a moral good, in their captives’ best interests.We bring you these two reports to show how secular, liberal, atheist ‘experts’ have gone completely wacko. They are the intellectual progeny of staunch atheist Isaac Asimov who—having rejected the God of the Bible—created fantasy worlds of his own to sell to the public.Morality is rooted in human exceptionalism. As Jefferson famously wrote, we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. We are not just mammals, though our souls are housed in physical bodies (very exceptional bodies) that share all the mammal traits. To call the human species ‘just a mammal’ commits the fallacy of reductionism. We humans have intrinsic value not because of our mammalian traits, but because we are eternal souls created in the image of God.
Athlon SportsAthlon Sports has ranked every college football coach, No. 1 to No. 128, ahead of the 2016 season. You can view the full list here. The top of the list is what most people care about, though, and inside Athlon Sports’ top 10, there aren’t too many surprises. The biggest “surprise” is probably that there is only one SEC coach in the top 10, but there isn’t a clear SEC coach slight. [email protected] ranked the top #CFB coaches in the country & only 1 SEC coach made the top 10 pic.twitter.com/cBaH9hzp4z— Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) June 21, 2016The No. 1 and No. 2 spots are extremely obvious and unarguable. After that, there are a handful of coaches who could be deserving of the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 spots.If you were starting a college football program tomorrow, though, Harbaugh would almost certainly be the choice behind Saban and Meyer.

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Uber has named Barney Harford its new COO, the same day the European Union’s top court dealt it a blow, ruling that the ride-hailing company should be regulated like a transportation company and not a technology service.Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said Wednesday that Harford would oversee Uber’s global operations, marketing and customer support teams beginning on January 2.Even before the EU setback announced earlier Wednesday, Uber has had a rough 2017, from the ouster of CEO Travis Kalanick, sexual harassment allegations and the revelation that it covered up a massive breach of customers’ data. Kalanick resigned in June, under pressure from the board after a video surfaced of the former CEO arguing with a driver for the company.Last week, a federal judge unsealed an inflammatory letter in which a former Uber security specialist accused the ride-hailing service of corporate espionage. The judge urged prosecutors to investigate allegations that Uber stole technology from Waymo, Google’s autonomous vehicle unit.The company, founded in 2008 and based in San Francisco, has also seen numerous defections by executives and board members in the past year.Harford, who has been serving Uber in an advisory role since October, is the former CEO of Orbitz and serves on the boards of United Airlines and RealSelf. He moved to the U.S. from Britain in 1999 to work for Expedia, where he worked with Khosrowshahi.

Archaeologists found four artifacts in total, one complete biface tool and three biface fragments, but could not make a cultural association, it said.The commission acted on an order under the Heritage Conservation Act to secure the four artifacts for protection and further examination, it added.It said the area had been logged twice, prepped and replanted, and all soil layers where cultural artifacts would typically be found had been removed and were at some distance from where the items were found.The Coastal GasLink pipeline would transport natural gas from northeastern B.C. to LNG Canada’s export terminal in Kitimat on the coast.With files from the Canadian Press HOUSTON, B.C. – Members of the Unist’ot’en clan are standing by their claim that indigenous artifacts were found at the construction site of the Coastal GasLink Pipeline.The Unist’ot’en clan said Monday the artifacts were recovered from a site that “had been heavily disturbed” by Coastal GasLink bulldozers. It said in a statement that the “cryptic bulletin” from the commission “ignores the role that CGL’s industrial activity has played in disturbing this cultural site and displacing these artifacts.”The Unist’ot’en have previously said the two tools were removed to protect them. The clan has also said an archeologist from the Smithsonian Institution estimated one of the tools dates back up to 3,500 years. The Oil and Gas Commission said in an information bulletin that investigators found stone artifacts on top of frozen clay soils and the archaeology branch of the provincial Forestry Ministry is working to return the items to the appropriate Indigenous communities.“The soils upon which the artifacts were found would not typically contain any such cultural artifacts, and this was likely not their original location,” the commission said.“However, a definitive determination on their exact location of origin cannot be made.”The two stone tools that were originally reported discovered were not present at the site, the information bulletin said.The Unist’ot’en said they have not been included in the archeological work done on their territory. “Wet’suwet’en cultural artifacts cannot be properly identified and analyzed without the input of Wet’suwet’en people,” it said.Coastal GasLink quoted the Forests Ministry as saying there was “strong evidence” the artifacts had been moved from their original location, as they were found sitting on top of a frozen slab of clay. Remaining sediments are considered to be “culturally sterile,” it added. The Forests Ministry said in a statement it was impossible to determine the age of the artifacts or attribute them to a specific Indigenous community.“There is no way to determine when or how they came to be in the location,” it added.Analysis of the artifacts is complete, and the branch is now working toward returning them to the appropriate communities, it said.In an emailed response to questions on Monday, the commission said the team examining the site was not aware the two tools had been removed.
