– Kamesh Yadram unbeaten 104 rescue ECDA gutsy unbroken sixth-wicket stand of 57 between Tevin Imlach and Ryan Shun has left the final round of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Jaguars Franchise League Three-day clash between East Coast Demerara and East Bank in the balance.East Bank were staring another defeat in the face after squandering their advantage with a second innings top-order batting collapse.But at the end of the second day, at the Enterprise Busta Sports Club ground yesterday, they recovered from a perilous position of 56-5, to close on 113-5,chasing 178 for victory.Imlach and Shun resumed on 52 and 17 respectively, with East Bank 65 runs short of victory.Resuming the day on 34-0, East Coast Demerara were bundled out for 217.Earlier, Kamesh Yadram cracked an impressive 104 not out to pull his side out of trouble. The hosts, who had collapsed to 61-3 when the elder Yadram came in, were eventually bowled out for 217, half an hour before the second interval.The left-handed Yadram hardly played a false stroke in 205 minutes at the crease, and against an older ball on a true pitch, he single-handedly rebuilt the innings with sound and stylish shot-making.The visitors buckled down to their task on a slow, dry-looking pitch and dismissed both openers Bhaskar Yadram and Keon Roberts,along with First-class batsman Chanderpaul Hemraj,in less than an hour of play.Sherfane Rutherford (4-39) and Steven Harris (2-58), both bowled with great control to pile on much misery on the hosts, picking up the first three wickets.The 18-year-old Rutherford removed Yadram (33), while Harris dismissed Roberts (22) and Hemraj (4),but could not,however,do the trick to remove the 22-year-old, Yadram during his 165-ball knock.His innings featured both aggression and maturity, counting ten fours and three sixes. He was never hesitant to step out and hit the spinners, and at the same time was equal to the task in finding the gaps.Yadram added 30 for the fourth-wicket with Amir Khan (20),and 66 for the sixth-wicket with Paul Wintz (23), but after those two partnerships, the remainder of innings belonged to the home boy Yadram.He continued to bat with typical aplomb and reached his hundred with a single off left-arm unorthodox spinner Totaram Bishun (2-62), off 157 balls.During Yadram’s milestone, the hosts lost Khan, Ramnarine Chatura (1), Wintz, Rohan Mangal (0) and Gavin Moriah (0);bringing the innings quickly came to an end.The visitors were then undermined by pacer Wintz who produced a brilliant opening spell to claim 4-41 off nine overs.The top order failed to show any sort of commitment with the bat, and were reduced to 56-5, with Wintz claiming the wickets of Deonarine Seegobin (1), Stephan Brown (19), Mark Rhobe (1) and Danny Narine (0), while Gavin Moriah accounted for Rutherford (10).But just when the hosts thought they had the game,wicket-keeper Imlach and Shun took charge until the end of the day’s play.Meanwhile, summarised scores from the other games are as follows:At Port Mourant, tournament winners Lower Corentyne amassed a mammoth 649/9 declared in reply to West Berbice’s 174 all out yesterday. At Tuschen, Romario Shephard’s 8/49 rattled Essequibo as the folded for 134 all out after resuming on their overnight score of 87/3. At GCC, Bourda, Georgetown resuming on their overnight 116/2,were dismissed for 216.Matches continue today from 09:30
Springfest will take place on March 30 at McCarthy Quad from 3 to 11 p.m. “It’s been very hard to control five or four entrances in the past [at Springfest], and it really spreads our personnel thin,” Stiers said. “We worked with [Goldenvoice] for [Springfest] to get tickets for Stagecoach and Just Like Heaven, and we decided rather than giving them away like we normally do, which is by running some sort of contest, that we would tie it to our social impact project to incentivize kids to participate,” said Concerts Committee Director Kira Stiers, a senior majoring in international relations and political science. “I think it’s a really great idea because people are much more inclined to contribute to a cause when it involves something they really enjoy or are excited about,” Helm said. Joshua Helm, a sophomore majoring in chemical engineering, said students will be encouraged to bring canned goods due to the convenience from donating and incentives. “It’s more so, at this point, about encouraging the spirit of caring for one another, especially among students,” Lee said. Students who do not have dining hall plans or have used the totality of their dining swipes and are experiencing food emergencies qualify for assistance from the Trojan Food Pantry. The amount available to students depends on the amount of donations the pantry receives day to day. Springfest, the annual music and arts concert hosted by USC Concerts Committee, announced on its Facebook page last Thursday that students who bring two canned goods to the festival between 3 and 7 p.m. will gain entrance through a fast-pass lane. They will also be entered in a raffle for a chance to win two passes to local music festivals Stagecoach or Just Like Heaven. There will only be one main entrance to the concert between the Von Kleinsmid Center and the Social Sciences Building instead of the usual four to five entrances surrounding McCarthy Quad. The entrance will have four lanes, with one lane designated as the fast-pass lane. The canned goods will be donated to the Trojan Food Pantry, which aims to address food insecurity on campus by providing emergency relief to students experiencing food crises. The Concerts Committee asks students to bring either canned lentils, brown rice, canned beans, canned mixed vegetables, canned fruits, peanut butter or soup. They ask that none of the canned items contain meat. Stiers said students can still bring donations after 7 p.m., noting that the team will keep collecting as long as students keep bringing. The fast-pass lane will be a part of Springfest’s new logistical structure. This year’s Springfest will include stricter regulations for students attending, as well as a canned food drive for students to donate vegetarian food to the Trojan Food Pantry. (Sarah Johnson | Daily Trojan) “Something that’s really challenging with issues like food insecurity is that, often times, these students are hidden from the picture and it’s something that we don’t like to talk about,” USG President Debbie Lee said. This effort is a collaboration among Undergraduate Student Government and Graduate Student Government, the St. Francis Center, Campus Activities and USC Hospitality.
Coming into the weekend with only one Pac-10 road win all year, the No. 15 USC women’s volleyball team had something to prove in its last two away matches of the season.The Women of Troy did just that.Killer setup · Setter Kendall Bateman (12) had 40 assists against the Ducks on Saturday to lead USC. – Tim Tran | Daily TrojanBehind the strong play of their middles and a solid defensive attack, the Women of Troy swept away both No. 18 Oregon and Oregon State at the Galen Center to show the rest of the conference that USC might just be peaking at the right time.“These wins were pretty big, especially because we played extremely well,” USC coach Mick Haley said. “We have self-confidence. We’re more physical and we’re focused.”Led by junior middle blocker Audrey Eichler and senior outside hitter Jessica Gysin, USC (19-9, 8-8) swept the Beavers 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-17) Saturday to finish its weekend sweep.Eichler and Gysin both had 13 kills to lead the team against the Beavers. Eichler and fellow middle blocker sophomore Lauren Williams provided a dominant effort for the Women of Troy, as they played strong in the middle to help set up USC’s defensive attack. Williams hit .667 on the evening with nine kills.“Eichler is not as powerful as Williams, but she is an excellent blocker and continues to improve her offense. Williams is really physical,” Haley said. “When they play well, that just puts so much pressure on the teams that are big outside hitting teams.”Sophomore setter Kendall Bateman produced another consistent effort with 40 assists and five digs while outside hitter Alex Jupiter recorded a double-double with 11 kills and 10 digs to go with four blocks (three solo).Jill Sawatzky and Rachel Rourke had 10 kills each for Oregon State (12-16, 3-13).The sweep was the second in two days for the Women of Troy as they defeated the Ducks 3-0, (25-22, 25-18, 25-19) Friday night behind the strong play of Jupiter.The sophomore racked up 22 kills, 12 digs and four blocks to lead her team to its first win in Eugene, Ore., since 2006.Bateman, who leads the nation in assists per set, set the pace for the USC offense with 40 assists, five digs and three block assists. Williams had eight kills to go with seven blocks (one solo, six assisted), and Gysin added eight kills and eight blocks.Katherine Fischer and Heather Meyers had 11 kills each for Oregon (16-9, 6-9), but Meyers had 11 hitting errors on the night.Jupiter started a key run in the first set at 17-17 as USC scored four straight for the eventual win. Williams and Jupiter stuffed a Meyers kill attempt in the second set to make it 13-10 and would close out with the 12-8 run.Gysin’s kill broke a 14-14 tie in the third set, setting up a 20-16 lead to finish the sweep of the Ducks.“We’ve upped our game,” Haley said. “From the second week of October, we’ve gotten better every week. I was really impressed with our blocking and our defense, and Bateman is really the real deal. If she’s not the best [setter] in the country, she’s certainly one of the two or three best.”USC, riding a four-match winning streak, concludes its season this weekend when it hosts Arizona and Arizona State at the Galen Center. Following the matches, the NCAA selection committee will draw tournament positions on Sunday.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, I thought I would get an early start on my day-long celebration of commercialism and over-the-top flattery.This year, though, times were tough, so instead of going to the grocery store and spending my dimes on a glittery Hallmark card, I decided there was no better way to honor those who deserve a little extra love than with a nice spotlight.There are a lot of deserving candidates who could use some care and compassion right now.And no, I’m not talking about you, Everson Griffen and Mitch Mustain.No, this year, the roses and chocolates go to an especially unsavory cast of characters, who, in the words of Bon Jovi, “just want to be loved.”This toast is for college basketball’s cavalcade of quitters.(Cue the music to Bud Light’s “Real American Heroes.”)Today, I salute you, Mr. My-Minutes-Have-Been-Cut-So-It’s-Time-To-Quit-And-Transfer guy.That’s right, Larry Drew II of UNC, Bryce Jones of USC, Devoe Joseph of Minnesota and Gary Franklin of Cal — this is for you.PTPer used to stand for Primetime Player.But we all know you love yourself and your minutes more than you love the team, so the acronym has been fittingly changed to playing time pouter.When the going got tough in your relationship with coaches, who, by the way, have accumulated three national championships and almost 2,000 wins among them, you ignorantly got up and bailed.I get it.As the big man on campus, you expect to be treated well from day one.It’s nice to be coddled and fawned over by the local media and even Division I coaches around the state when you’re a recruit, but once you enter college, it’s time to grow up.Regardless of what you were told during recruiting trips, a starting spot is not earned based on past merit or scrapbooks full of amateur accomplishments.When you average 25 minutes a game as a starting guard at Cal, you can’t shoot less than 30 percent from the floor through 13 games, Mr. Franklin. Especially when you are trying to share the backcourt with 2010 California Gatorade Player of the Year Allen Crabbe, who, during that same 13-game span, averaged more points per game on higher field-goal and three-point percentages.As for you, Mr. Jones, whether it was an alleged fight in practice or the emergence of junior guard Jio Fontan that did you in, maturity is shown by what you do when the odds are stacked against you.Even with all the athleticism in the world, there are no excuses for the disappearing acts that began before the Fordham transfer was cleared to play. Not to mention a disastrous assist-to-turnover ratio that fell below one.It’s sad when this saga of missteps makes a Christina Aguilera anthem blunder look like a tale of character, but in the case of Mr. Joseph and his on-again, off-again battles with Minnesota’s coach Tubby Smith, there is nothing beautiful about this situation no matter what they say.After being suspended for the team’s first six games, Joseph’s emergence was the only thing more surprising in Minneapolis than an old, domed stadium caving in during a snow storm.With Joseph’s poise and a knack for being clutch in late-game situations, Gopher fans believed a Big Ten regular season championship could be on the horizon for the first time since 1982.So much for that.When the ball dropped to ring in 2011, Mr. Joseph dropped his own proverbial ball when he opened his mouth to teammates about wanting to transfer.Of course, he no longer is with the team, and they seem to be doing fine without his services, currently sitting at No. 25 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll.They say a seasoned point guard in college is like a fine bottle of wine — with age, they are a lot more enjoyable to coach. To be blunt, Drew is no Pinot Noir or Merlot.He might be a junior and the son of current Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew, but the apple falls far from the tree in this basketball family.Don’t tell Drew II this, but he isn’t exactly in the mold of Roy Williams’ other UNC products, Ty Lawson and Raymond Felton.In more than 25 minutes per game the last two seasons, Drew II averaged six points and five assists per game, all while shooting less than 30 percent from beyond the three-point arc.Not to mention, since he was replaced in the starting lineup five games ago by freshman Kendall Marshall, the Tar Heels haven’t lost and are ranked in the top 25.Here’s to hoping that after his college career concludes, the Encino-native finds a suitor in the NBDL.So, to you, Mr. My-Minutes-Got-Cut-So-Now-It’s-Time-To-Quit-And-Transfer guy, my hope is that as you sit on your couch of loneliness and despair this Valentine’s Day, you will look deeper than the jelly-filled substance in your chocolate truffles.My hope is that you learn that to be loved, sometimes you have to show you’re worthy of being loved first.“For The Love Of The Game” runs Wednesdays.
