Momentum swings sharply in favor of Hawklets in Rockhurst-SM East rivalry

first_imgLancer guard Jay Guastello looks to make a pass through the defense of Rockhurst players Will Bazzle (left) and Patrick Geha. Tight defense from the Hawklets prevented the Lancer from establishing any kind of flow on offense throughout the night.If the finale of the undercard was any indicator, perhaps SM East’s varsity boys basketball team on Friday could have sensed that the pendulum was swinging sharply in the favor of their chief rival Rockhurst.The Lancers walked away from the teams’ past two meetings with dramatic one-point wins that gave the spirited SM East student section bragging rights over their spirited counterparts from Rockhurst. But Friday, the only last-second thrill came in the junior varsity game, when Rockhurst sophomore Scotty Thompson drained a mid-court buzzer beater to give the Hawklets a 64-62 win.The varsity game, on the other hand, saw no back-and-forth dramatics — just a steady 70-44 beat down of the Lancers by a fired up Hawklets team.Rockhurst jumped to an early 9-2 lead in the first quarter, prompting SM East coach Shawn Hair to call a time out. His Lancers appeared to settle in a bit after the break, and brought the score to 14-8 at the end of the first quarter after a steal let senior Gunnar Englund put in a layup before time expired.But that was the closest the Lancers would get. The Hawklets extended their lead to 34-14 at the half, and things just went downhill from there for the Lancers in the second half. The Lancers couldn’t find a way to contain Rockhurst senior Patrick Geha throughout the night, allowing him to score a team leading 19 points. Senior guard Cartier Dean proved pesky throughout the second half, and finished the night with 13 points.For the Lancers, senior Lucas Jones and sophomore Zeb Vermillion led scorers with 15 points each. The Lancers clearly felt the loss of junior Joey Wentz, who left the team earlier this month.SM East will have a challenge when they look to rebound against a tough 10-2 Olathe North on the road next Friday.SM East coach Shawn Hair was looking for answers at his alma mater Friday.That about sums it up…last_img read more

Bay Area signs smart card deal

first_imgTHE LARGEST smart-card fare collection contract yet awarded in North America was signed by San Francisco’s Metropolitan Transportation Commission on May 27. The 10-year turnkey agreement with Motorola’s Worldwide Smartcard Solutions Division and the ERG Group provides for the installation of a smart card ticketing system that may eventually cover every public transport operator in the San Francisco Bay Area. The consortium will initially conduct a six-month trial of the new TransLink system towards the end of next year. This will cover about 5000 passengers using metro, rail, light rail and bus services worked by BART, Caltrain, Muni, Golden Gate Transit, AC Transit and Santa Clara County’s Valley Transportation Authority. If the trials are successful, TransLink will be expanded to cover the services of 26 operators from 2001, allowing seamless travel throughout the region. Motorola and ERG will fund the installation and operation of the equipment, and will receive between US$114m and US$157m, depending the level of card usage over the 10-year concession.last_img read more

Providence is next up in Dayton’s basketball-a-thon

first_imgCOLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Win an NCAA Tournament game. Celebrate. Get on a bus. Prepare for the next game — the fifth in eight days.From Brooklyn to Columbus with a pit stop at home, the Dayton Flyers have been college basketball’s busiest team.“We don’t get tired,” Dayton guard Scoochie Smith said Thursday, about 19 hours after the Flyers rallied to beat Boise State in the First Four. “Can’t afford to get tired.”The next game in Dayton’s basketball-a-thon is against sixth-seeded Providence and Big East player of the year Chris Dunn on Friday at Nationwide Arena.The 11th-seeded Flyers got to Columbus around 1 a.m. Thursday after making the 80-mile bus trip from Dayton on I-70.“It was rough,” said senior Jordan Sibert, the Ohio State transfer who hit a key 3-pointer late against the Broncos. “Just leaving the game and trying to get on a bus and come right up here right after the game. But we did a good job just sticking together and making sure that we enjoyed the moment last night, but as soon as we got back, we tried to get rested up as much as possible. Now we’re just moving on to the next game.”The next games have been piling up for the Flyers, who reached the final of the Atlantic 10 championship in New York last week, wrapping up with a loss to VCU on Sunday.That’s a lot of ball, especially for a team with only seven players currently on scholarship.“We’ve lost a lot of practice availability,” coach Archie Miller said. “We’ve lost the ability to do that in the last 10-12 days because of all the games. It’s more of a physical thing. And getting ourselves ready to go physically is the biggest thing, because mentally, we’re ready to go.”The Friars are in the NCAAs for the second straight season under coach Ed Cooley. They lasted only one game last season, but it was one of the best of the tournament. Providence let a lead slip away against North Carolina and lost by two as an 11 seed.Now the Friars are on the other side of the 6-11 matchup, but basically playing a road game.Dayton getting a home game to start the tournament and then playing so close to home as an 11 seed has been the source of much debate since Selection Sunday, but Providence doesn’t seem to mind.“We’re actually excited about it,” Cooley said. “We’re here to compete the best we can, and not so much worry about the crowd.”Some things to know as Dayton happily tries to lengthen what has already been a long week.LADONTAE’S CHOICEProvidence star LaDontae Henton, from Lansing, Michigan, had signed with Dayton out of high school, but when coach Brian Gregory left the Flyers for Georgia Tech, Henton had second thoughts. Miller agreed to let him break his commitment and find a new place to play.“I’m a firm believer in everything happens for a reason,” Henton said. “It’s been a right fit ever since I came here. And I think it’s one of the best decisions I made in my life to come to Providence College, and everything is working out for the best.”Henton has 2,041 points and 1,043 rebounds in his career, making him the second player in school history to reach both 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds. The 6-foot-6 forward was the Big East’s leading scorer this season at 20.1 points per game.PLAYING SHORTDespite not having a player taller than 6-6 on the roster, Dayton has managed to hold its own on the boards.The Flyers have only been outrebounded by about one per game (32.6 rebounds allowed to 31.4 gained), though Boise State outrebounded them 33-25.BENTIL BOOMFreshmen forward Ben Bentil became a starter for Providence in late December when Cooley decided junior Tyler Harris would give the Friars some needed experience off the bench. Bentil has surged late in the season.He had 21 points and 10 rebounds in the second-to-last regular-season game against Seton Hall and then had a double-double in each of the Friars’ two Big East Tournament games.“I still think Tyler is our third option, if you want to call it an option,” Cooley said. “And Ben is just emerging in front of ours eyes every single day. And the more he slows down, the more efficient he’s becoming. He’s not thinking. He’s playing.”___Follow Ralph D. Russo at http://www.Twitter.com/ralphDrussoAPlast_img read more

Wood takes victory at Pattana

first_imgIPGC Golf from The HavenMonday, June 8, Greenwood – StablefordAs the hopefuls gathered for a hearty breakfast the weather was rainy but as the skies brightened to the north east they set off, happy feet tripping their way to Greenwood where it turned out to be not as bright as Pattaya.  In spite of the ominous omens, a start was made but the first group had just made it through the second fairway, with the last group just teeing off when a huge deluge descended accompanied by flashes of lightning and heavy thunder, and as it appeared to be continuing for the foreseeable future a halt was called to the day’s golf.John Wood & Phil Cass. In spite of the signs advising that there were no rain checks to be had, the management was very accommodating, providing each player with a voucher for a green fee and cart fee to be used for their next visit to the course.Wednesday, June 10, Pattana B & C – Stableford(Yellow Tees)CSS 711st John Wood (24) 38pts2nd John Carlin (20) 37pts3rd Hal Hart (20) 36pts4th Walter Panichi (1) 35pts5th Vincent Gras (19) 35ptsFollowing Mondays’ cancellation, everyone was keen to get off for a full round of golf at the always immaculate Pattana where the B & C courses were the day’s test.  Following the area’s recent heavy rains the yellow tees were selected for play measuring just over 6,300 yards and with little run on the fairways.  The rain had also affected the green-keeper’s ability to cut the greens, leaving them slower than usual.John Wood had an exceptionally good day, which gleaned him yet another win to add to his total as he currently experiences a rare run of form.John Carlin also did very well to take second place just a single point behind after having made a strong run over the last four holes (scoring 10 points from them) but a weaker front nine had left him just a bit too much to do.Hal Hart took a very good third place with a level handicap round that promised much after the opening nine when he was four under handicap.  He started the back half with eight more points from the first three holes but unfortunately collapsed through the last six, scoring just a point from each.Walter Panichi had an outstanding back nine, shooting a one under gross 35 which helped him to win a count back for fourth by 20 to 17 to leave Vincent Gras in fifth place.Mike Hill had a quiet day until he reached the second hole on the C course where he slipped in a wonderful putt to clean out the rollover pot for the ‘2’s in the second division.Walter Panichi almost went even better but just missed out on winning an IPGC hole-in-one golf bag as he saw his 7-iron shot on the 156 yard seventh on the C course pull up just two inches from the hole.  It was so tantalizingly close to winning the bag but he had to settle for the solo 2 in the first division.Friday, June 12, Crystal Bay A & C – StablefordCSS 721st Phil Cass (16) 38pts2nd Markku Tynell (22) 33pts3rd Mike Hill (19) 32pts4th Hal Hart (21) 32pts5th Mick Lowe (16) 32ptsAfter a disappointing day the previous week at the sister course, it was a very pleasant surprise to find that the A & C courses at Crystal Bay were in much better condition, with the bunkers immaculate and the course in good shape considering the recent weather.  The caddies especially were several notches above their counterparts and seemed to be actually enjoying their day in the countryside.  All of which, added to the competitive pricing, made for an excellent day’s golfing.Phil Cass had a very nice outing, after he got over scratching the second hole, as he went on to take 18 points from the front and then 20 points from the back nine for a two under handicap round.  This was against a background of generally heavy going over a course made sodden by the recent rains in the area.Phil was the runaway winner by five clear from Markku Tynell in second, who never quite recovered from a poor starting nine but with a level handicap back nine had done enough to just keep ahead of a three-way count back for third place.  That was won by Mike Hill with 16 on the back nine as Hal Hart took fourth with 10 on the last six and Mick Lowe 7 after they had tied the nine on 14 each.There were no 2’s in the first division but Mick Lowe scored a wonderful ‘2’ on the 194-yard fifth on the A course, for the sole one in the second division to sweep the pot clean.Note: If you would like to play with The Haven group, you can contact 038 710 988 or call in to The Haven Hotel, 185 Soi 13, situated between Beach Road and 2nd Road. All transportation to the course is arranged and you do not need to sign up prior to the day, but you should be there by 8.15 on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday on the days that you wish to play.  If you would like to leave your golf clubs at The Haven, there are usually lockers available at a nominal charge.  A schedule of courses to be played can be found on our web site at www.thehaven-hotel.com.last_img read more
