Long way pays off

first_imgONTARIO – The Twentynine Palms boys basketball team waited nearly 50 years for this chance and drove 2 & 1/2 hours to get to Colony High School. Urged on by its fervent, colorfully adorned crowd, it desperately wanted to win a section title. “I dreamt last night I’d make a basket like that,” Harris said. “I was calm and I just shot it. It felt good.” Buckley never scored again as the Wildcats pulled away. Harris, an All-County football and basketball player, simply took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 10 points. He finished with a team-high 21. “We just did what we had to do,” Harris said. “I was feeling it and I knew I had to step it up.” Twentynine Palms started fast, taking a 16-5 lead by the end of the first quarter. The Wildcats (28-2) used their quickness and jumping ability to maneuver around and over the slower, less-athletic Griffins (24-7). But Buckley kept chipping away, finding its rhythm in the second quarter and moving to within seven – 30-23 – at the half. The third quarter was all about Polan, as he poured in 13 points to lift Buckley to a 47-46 lead as its red-clad fans rejoiced. The Wildcats had one final surge left. The victory will send the Wildcats to the CIF Southern California Regional, more rarefied air for Twentynine Palms. Harris had 14 rebounds to go with his 21 points. Backing Harris was guard Nico Matthews with 16 points and Pierre Singleton with nine. Polan led Buckley with 24 points and 12 rebounds. The Griffins hurt themselves with 23 turnovers, compared to 14 for the Wildcats. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It wasn’t disappointed as it surged in the fourth quarter to win the CIF-Southern Section Division IV-A title 63-51 over Sherman Oaks Buckley before 1,500 screaming fans. The section title was the first in school history for Twentynine Palms and prompted a wild celebration by the Wildcats and their raucous fans. center_img “I’m just relieved,” Wildcats coach Larry Bowden said. “I think I’m going to go out and cry. “The best thing is seeing all these kids who used to play for us come back to root us on. It’s great after all the times we got knocked out of the playoffs in previous years.” Trailing 47-46 to start the fourth quarter, 6-foot-2 sophomore forward Montreal Harris took over, scoring the Wildcats’ next three baskets as they took a three-point lead with 4:06 left. Buckley 6-7 center Richard Polan countered with a basket, but then the Wildcats’ Robert “Buggy” Harris made the biggest basket of the game, a 3-pointer form the corner to vault his team into a 55-51 lead. Harris wasn’t surprised by his shot; he rather expected it. last_img read more

These Antoine Griezmann comments are sure to disappoint Manchester United fans

first_imgAntoine Griezmann has made it clear the rumours about his future are unfounded and he is still an Atletico Madrid player.The France forward has been linked with a big-money move to Manchester United, to link up with international teammate Paul Pogba, as Jose Mourinho builds a team able to compete for the Premier League.In fact, he spoke on television earlier this week claiming there is a ‘six out of 10’ chance he will move to Old Trafford – although he did admit the chance of his staying with Atleti is ‘seven out of 10’.And the 26-year-old has now cast further doubt on a potential move to the Red Devils, after posting a message on his personal Twitter account.Griezmann’s statement translates as: ‘All the rumours are unfounded, I’m still Colchonero [Atletico Madrid]. My destination will be established after discussion with my agent.’ Toutes les rumeurs sont infondées, je suis toujours Colchonero. Mon orientation sera etablie apres discussion avec mon Conseiller Sportif— Antoine Griezmann (@AntoGriezmann) May 26, 2017//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Obviously the statement does not completely rule out Griezmann linking up with Mourinho’s side, through it does mean this already-long transfer saga is set to continue for even longer.

Half-time: Chelsea 2 Tottenham 0

first_imgA quickfire double from Eden Hazard and Didier Drogba put Chelsea in command at the break at Stamford Bridge.Tottenham were by far the brighter of the two sides in the first 15 minutes, with Harry Kane – starting ahead of Roberto Soldado – twice serving notice of his intent.Shortly after Jan Vertonghen had nodded just over, Kane latched on to a Vlad Chiriches cross but his header came crashing back off the crossbar.Kane then picked the pocket of Cahill on the left flank, outsprinted the Chelsea centre-back and bore down on goal, but screwed his angled shot wastefully wide of the far post.It took Chelsea 17 minutes to muster a meaningful attack. John Terry won the ball on halfway, Willian slipped the ball into Drogba and he teed up Cesc Fabregas – but the Spaniard’s clipped effort was straight at Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris.Tottenham didn’t heed the warning and Chelsea went in front a couple of minutes later.Hazard, who had been the Blues’ main outlet early on, played a neat one-two with Drogba before smashing in a shot under the body of Lloris at his near post.And another error from the goalkeeper allowed Chelsea to double their money moments later.The Frenchman’s wayward kick was recovered by Hazard, he fed Oscar, and the Brazilian slipped a perfectly weighted pass into Drogba, who held off Vertonghen before drilling home.The two goals settled Chelsea down after a nervy start and killed Tottenham’s early bluster, with Ryan Mason’s shot straight at Thibaut Courtois all Spurs had to show for the rest of the half.Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Drogba.

Iowa State U. Fine Tunes Its Decathlon Entry

first_imgAs the countdown to the 2009 Solar Decathlon continues, the Decathlon team representing Iowa State University has been working through a checklist of details that need to be addressed before its contest entry, Interlock House, is dissembled into six pieces and trucked to Washington, D.C., where the competition is scheduled to take place October 8-18.Beyond its net-zero-energy performance, a key feature of Interlock House – Iowa State’s first Decathlon entry – is its adaptability to both urban and suburban environments and its potential appeal to older homeowners. As noted in a recent story in the Des Moines Register, the target market for the project is baby boomers looking to downsize and green up. The house can easily be modified to accommodate people with disabilities, and can function efficiently in a cluster of similar buildings or as an outbuilding/guesthouse on a large lot.“It would help densify neighborhoods, interlocking retirees with family and friends,” Iowa State faculty member Clare Cardinal-Pett told the paper. “That’s a fun little concept.”Making the most of the lightThe walls and roof of Interlock House are insulated with 7 inches of BioBased foam and inch-thick batting made of recycled blue jeans. The combination offers R-50 thermal resistance.On its website, the Interlock team points out that the floor at the center of the house – which features an enclosed, south-facing sun porch – is covered with ceramic tiles over cement board. As sunlight heats the floor in the winter, the heat is distributed throughout the house via a series of vents. During the spring and fall, a collapsible-wall system on the perimeter of the porch – an assembly of track-mounted folding glass panels called the NanaWall — can be opened, along with doors on the northern end of the building, to allow cross-ventilation. When the weather is warm, the porch’s exterior set of panels can be left open while rooftop louvers shade the porch interior.The PV system on the Interlock House roof features thin-film solar panels made by PowerFilm Inc. (based in Ames, Iowa), which also is creating custom, thin-film panels for adjustable shading louvers on the eastern and southern sides of the house.last_img read more
