Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense And after just a short practice, Norwood was elated with how members of the “23-for-23” list fared.“The biggest thing for me was when we actually put in the offense, it seems like everybody picked it up pretty quick,” he observed.“I don’t know how much the cadets and the younger guys did with the youth groups, in terms of the offense we were running last tournament, but everybody seemed to come out and picked it up quick, and guys weren’t afraid to ask questions and learn. So I mean, if you’re willing to learn at this point, you’re in good shape.”That makes Norwood all the more excited to see the new guys strut their stuff when they get their turn to represent the country in the 2023 Fiba World Cup here.“I’ll be cheering them from the stands, cheering my head off. But I’m really excited for the group. Who knows who’s gonna be in, playing here in Manila, so it should be an exciting time,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina 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 MVP: Present and future Gilas players in one court ‘a sight to behold’ Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone View comments Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netComing in a tad late at the resumption of Gilas Pilipinas’ weekly evening practices at Meralco Gym on Monday, Gabe Norwood admitted he was quite startled with the influx of young talent which attended the session.“It was wild waking in.

Walton still not ready to go
Jackson expressed satisfaction with Kobe Bryant’s balancing act this season, as Bryant has alternately dominated games and relied on his teammates. He did both in the fourth quarter Monday, scoring 11 points but also giving up the ball to Smush Parker for a key 3-pointer. “We really think that if we distribute the ball at the right time in the game when the focus comes on him, there’s some easy shots that people have,” Jackson said. “If he trusts his teammates in those situations, we’re really a difficult team to stop.” firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3607 But Walton was unable to practice Tuesday and his availability is questionable with the Lakers playing back-to-back games against the Pistons and Toronto Raptors. They will finish the trip Sunday at Cleveland. “He’s getting frustrated with the situation,” Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “It’s longer than he ever thought it would be. It’s just difficult for him to sustain it when you’re on the road like this and you’re trying to find a way to get out there and nothing seems to work right.” ATLANTA – At the outset of their eight-game road trip a week ago, the Lakers never would have guessed that forward Luke Walton could still be hampered with a sprained right ankle by the time they return home. Walton suffered the injury Jan. 26 and has missed six games as a result. He hoped to return Monday against the Hawks, then talked about using a two-day break between games to get ready to play Thursday at Detroit. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Jacob’s Creek Open Australia’s David Lutterus eagled his last hole – the par-5 ninth – for an 8-under 64 and a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Jacob’s Creek Open at Kooyonga Golf Club in Adelaide, Australia. Paula Creamer shot a 5-under 67 for a share of the first-round lead with rookie Paige Mackenzie and veteran Sherri Steinhauer in the LPGA Tour’s season-opening SBS Open in Kahuku, Hawaii. The 20-year-old Creamer is seeking her first win since 2005 when she won twice, finished second on the money list and earned rookie of the year honors. Last year, she had 14 top-10 finishes, including a second-place tie in the Tournament of Champions. Julieta Granada, the winner of the season-ending ADT Championship, was a stroke back at 68 along with Natalie Gulbis, Sung Ah Yim and Wendy Ward.

Hospital focuses on hearts
COVINA – Heart attack victims in the East San Gabriel Valley are getting faster treatment that saves more heart muscle, thanks to a change in where ambulances take them. The county’s Emergency Medical Services agency recently designated Citrus Valley Medical Center’s Covina hospital as a heart attack receiving center. Patients who before would have gone to any nearby emergency room will now be brought directly to Covina’s Inter-Community Campus hospital, where they receive treatment beyond the abilities of most emergency rooms. “When an artery blocks, you have 90 minutes to restore blood flow, or the heart muscle begins to die,” explained Joe Powers, the executive director of the Citrus Valley Heart Center. “One of the challenges has been how to get that artery opened in 90 minutes or less.” To get patients to ICC’s cardiac lab as fast as possible, the hospital applied to become a STEMI receiving center. STEMI stands for a ST-elevated myocardial infarction, referring to the undesirable raised blips on a heart-beat chart indicating a blockage – simply put, a serious heart attack. The county approved the hospital as a STEMI center March 1. Patients with a complete blockage in an artery, instead of a partial blockage or even simply indigestion, are taken to one of the county’s 23 newly approved heart attack receiving centers. The time-saving designation sped Glendora resident Agnes Orosz to the “cath lab” when she had a heart attack March 12. Orosz, 64, an avid cycler, had just ridden her bicycle to a dentist appointment when her heart attack struck. “I had a sharp pain, like very severe indigestion under the breastbone, and it just kept getting worse,” she said. The dentist called 9-1-1, and an ambulance whisked her past emergency rooms to Inter-Community. Orosz’s husband, Ed, remembered what happened next. “They actually bypassed the emergency room with Agnes and took her straight to the cath lab,” he said. “I think it was due to the speed that they got her to the cath lab that there wasn’t any more damage.” So is the program working? “It’s a little early to draw conclusions about the program,” said Bill Koenig, the medical director of the county’s EMS agency. But measurements of how long it takes to get patients from the ambulance to the hospital door and then to the cath lab “show it’s doing very well.” email@example.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2730160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

MAN PUNCHED PRIEST DURING MASS, COURT TOLD
A man punched a priest during Mass after the cleric refused to accept a donation from him, a court heard today.Seamus Doherty, 66, arrived at St Colmcille’s in Glendowan, Churchill before 8pm Mass was due to start on January 15th, 2011.He went into the sacristy of the church and offered Fr Michael McKeever a donation of cash. The priest refused and went on to start Mass, the court heard.However when he started Mass, Doherty, of The Rock, Churchill, began to interrupt the ceremony.He began shouting and roaring abuse and standing in the middle aisle of the church.Fr McKeever asked Doherty to stop but he refused.At one stage he pulled a bottle of alcohol from his pocket.The priest asked Doherty to go to the back of the church but the accused began swearing at Fr McKeever and said he was not leaving.He then began to shout allegations that the clergy were responsible for the suicide of a young local man whose family was present at the Mass, the court was told.Fr McKeever, assisted by members of the congregation, eventually went down to Doherty and asked him to leave.However the accused became more aggressive and eventually punched the priest in the forehead before leaving.Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian told Letterkenny District Court his client had a problem with alcohol and also had mental health problems.“His behaviour is completely irrational because he has no issue with the clergy or the Gardai.“He has a long history but he says that by hitting a priest he has now hit rock bottom,” he said.Judge Paul Kelly said Doherty was obviously a serious risk to himself and to the community when he “loses the run of himself.”“I can think of little worse than a family hearing things like this in a church.“I have heard this man has problems. It may well be better that he is taken off the streets to address these,” he said.Judge Kelly adjourned the case until March 15th for a probation report.At hearing.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMAN PUNCHED PRIEST DURING MASS, COURT TOLD was last modified: January 19th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Churchillcourt case

Two barren draws on Tuesday as SUPL Match-Day 9 is rounded up
URA FC have now drawn 0-0 in all their last 5 league gamesStarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueTuesday, 04-12-2018 -URA FC 0-0 Tooro United-Ndejje University 0-0 Kirinya JSSURA FC were held to a fifth consecutive goalless draw in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Tuesday afternoon.Having fired blanks in games against SC Villa, Nyamityobora, Bul and Police before Tuesday’s encounter with Tooro United at Namboole, the Tax Collectors were hoping to go at least one better but it would not be the case.In a dull encounter, both sides started slowly with less chances created in the first half although the visitors should have led when Simon Sserunkuma beat his marker but there was no one to connect.After the break, URA head coach-Sam Ssimbwa introduced Vitalis Tabu and Mathew Tayo for the ineffective Shafik Kagimu and Robert Mukongotya respectively.URA started to dominate proceedings with Moses Seruyidde, Tabu and Joachim Ojera creating havoc for the Tooro United defence with the visitors resorting to counter attacking football.At the other end, Sserunkuma beat his marker but his cross into the area was met by Allan Kayiwa but his low shot was casually dealt with by James Alitho in the Tax Collectors’ goal.Kayiwa also volleyed over the bar from another Sserunkuma cross down the right.Wasswa Bbosa withdrew the former SC Villa winger for Davis Ssali before the introduction of Baker Buyala also came on as the search for at least a goal intensified.There was a penalty appeal waved away when Ojera seemed to have been fouled in the area but play continued.Tooro United remains 12th on the log with 7 points while URA leapfrogs Express FC to move to 8th with 13 points.At Bombo, on a water logged surface, Ndejje University and Kirinya JSS also shared spoils in a 0-0 draw.The Ndejje University IX that started in the 0-0 draw at home to Kirinya on TuesdayIn the first half, both sides missed opportunities to take the lead with Sam Matovu and Noel Nasasira the guilty pair for the home side while Faizal Muwawu, Fred Amaku and league top scorer-Joel Madondo could not hit the back of the net from promising positions for Kirinya.There was drama during halftime as Ndejje’s head coach-Reymond Komakech attacked a section of home fans who had hurled insults towards him and his technical bench during the first 45 minutes.Two police officers and a volleyball coach Johnson Kawenyera rushed in to salvage the situation as they refrained a visibly angry Komackech from the wrath of the fans who are demanding consistent positive results.Despite several changes by either side, none could find the all elusive breakthrough and settled for a 0-0 draw in the end.The draw was the first for Ndejje in the leagus this season and it elevates them into 11th on the table with 8 points from 9 games.For Kirinya, they remain 10th on the log with 12 points.The StarTimes Uganda Premier League resumes on Thursday afternoon with SC Villa hosting Maroons FC at Namboole.Comments Tags: kirinya jssndejje universityStarTimes Uganda Premeir LeagueTooro unitedURA FC
