Player of the Year Jalen Brunson made three 3s and finished with 18 points. Omari Spellman made three, as well, in a 15-point, 13-rebound monster game.About 1 minute into the second half, Paschall drained a 3 for Villanova’s 14th of the game, breaking a Final Four record first set by UNLV in 1987.Much earlier, at about the 13-minute mark of the first half, Collin Gillespie spotted up and swished for ‘Nova’s sixth 3 of the game, which gave it the NCAA record for 3s in a season, with 442.ADVERTISEMENT Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil 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 Povetkin back on cusp of world heavyweight title fight LATEST STORIES Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims MOST READcenter_img Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

Very few remember that team, though, because even though the importance of the long shot has grown as the decades have passed, it’s never been thought of as a guaranteed way to win consistently.Wright’s team is laying waste to that theory and, at times, making other teams look bad while doing it.On Saturday, the typical Villanova possession involved working the ball down low on the wing, then a skip pass across the bottom of the paint, followed by one, two or three passes around the arc until somebody got open. It usually worked. Most of the 18 makes barely skimmed the net.Villanova attempted 40 shots from 3, and only 25 from 2.Gillespie’s record-setter gave Villanova a 22-4 lead, and at that point, Kansas had as many turnovers as points and had taken as many timeouts as it had field goals.Coach Bill Self did what he could, urging his 7-foot center, Udoka Azubuike, out of the paint and into the faces of this group of hybrid forward-guards, all of whom can shoot. The big fella couldn’t get there.The Jayhawks, back in San Antonio on the 10-year anniversary of winning their last title here, made mini runs, but the deficit never got below double digits.Devonte Graham, the senior guard who has been the glue in this Final Four season, led Kansas with 23 points. Malik Newman, who pushed his game into overdrive during the postseason, had 21. They combined to make 6 of 13 3-pointers themselves, but didn’t get much help.About the only drama in the second half was whether the Wildcats would top Loyola Marymount’s tournament record of 21 3-pointers in a game (against Michigan, in a loss in 1990). Didn’t happen, mainly because they didn’t need it.But there’s still Monday. Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Villanova made a Final Four-record 18 3-pointers Saturday night and also became the most prolific 3-point shooting team in college-hoops history, playing long ball to snuff out the Jayhawks early in a 95-79 victory.Junior wingman Eric Paschall led the barrage, going 4 for 5 from 3, 10 for 11 overall, and finishing with a career-high 24 points.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownBut the hoop was as wide as the Alamodome for pretty much everyone in a Wildcats jersey. Seven ‘Nova players made 3s. Villanova shot 50 percent from behind the arc in the first half to put things out of reach — and 45 percent for the game.“That happens sometimes when you’re a good-shooting team and when you start that way,” Villanova coach Jay Wright said. “It’s hard for Kansas, it’s hard to come back.

LRA Hosts Regional Confab on Strategic Management

first_imgThe Elfrieda Stewart Tamba Administration at the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) is poised to make the entity a regional model in the West African region.Speaking at the opening of a four-day regional strategic management workshop at a local resort in Monrovia, she said strategic management is pivotal for every customs administration with the LRA being no exception. In her brief statement when she officially declared the workshop open, Madam Tamba noted that strategic management, especially in the revenue collection sector, cannot be ignored because it serves as the bedrock for effectiveness and efficiency in collecting taxes.She said she wants the LRA to be one of the best in the region, but this can only be done when staffs are adequately trained.Making remarks at the opening ceremony also was the Commissioner General of The Gambia, Yankuba Darboe, who said it is a great honor to be in Liberia for such an important program, which borders on experience sharing that would benefit participating countries.“This is a workshop that involves members of the WCO in West Africa, especially the English speaking countries, on management strategic planning, that has brought different countries together for experience sharing,” he said.The chief facilitator at the workshop, who is also a representative of World Customs Organization, Philip Wood, said the project will help to build the capacity of staffs to carry out their jobs effectively.He said effective strategic management process is key to custom administration and it also helps to move away from theory to practice. LRA Commissioner of Customs, Saa Saamoi, also said that the hosting of the workshop in Liberia is also meant to afford several of its employees the opportunity to form part of the workshop and is a vote of confidence that the country has returned to normal after the devastating Ebola outbreak.Meanwhile, the workshop is being organized through the West African Customs Administrations Modernization (WACAM) Project by the World Customs Organization. The project is being supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA).The workshop brings together participants from Anglophone West Africa, which includes Liberia, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Gambia and Nigeria. It is meant to help developed the capacities of customs administrations in the various countries, which would lead to the adoption of strategic management plans that would effectiveness and efficiency in revenue collection in these countries.

Ayala edges Perris to reach title game

first_img“I’m so proud of the babies,” veteran Ayala coach Mel Sims said. “I thought when we were down nine in the third and playing badly that we could be done, but good teams step up and come back.” Gardner, who finished with 29 points, stepped it up when the Bulldogs (28-3) needed it most. She scored 12 points in the final period, including the final six in the last 1:06 off a reverse, up-and-under layup off the glass and 4-for-4 free-throw shooting. The Bulldogs went 11-for-13 from the line, including 6-of-6 in the final two minutes. The junior coolly put Ayala up to stay with 8.9 seconds left, draining two free throws after being fouled in the lane by Perris guard Brianna Estell. It was a roller-coaster final minute for Estell, a senior guard who drew the Panthers (22-7) to a 65-65 tie with a fadeaway 3-pointer with 25 seconds left before being called for the foul, her fifth. “I feel for Brianna,” Perris coach Marvin Williams said. “As a senior this is something that she’s going to remember the rest of her life. But I guarantee you that Brianna Estell will be a stronger person because of this.” MENIFEE – The top-ranked Ayala girls basketball team stormed the court at Paloma Valley High School when the second-half buzzer sounded, ecstatic over what they thought was a 67-65 CIF-Southern Section DivisionII-A semifinal victory over fourth-seeded Perris on Tuesday. There was a problem, though. The officials called a foul on the Bulldogs on Tayesha Woods’ last-ditch 15-foot shot attempt, taken right around when the buzzing started. “I wasn’t sure what was going on,” Ayala junior forward Rebekah Gardner said. “We had just gotten the stop and we were celebrating, then we hear something about a foul. I didn’t believe it.” Gardner’s disbelief was correct. After conferring for roughly 15 seconds, the officials said the foul came after the buzzer, giving Ayala the two-point victory and a date in the D2-A finals this weekend against Temescal Canyon. center_img Ayala needed a boost in the third period, as Perris turned a 31-28 deficit into a 47-38 lead thanks to a 15-2 run. Perris had a six-point cushion, 51-45, going into the fourth and Ayala needed a shot of adrenaline. That’s when freshman guard Ariel Marsh came in. Struggling with her shot for most of three periods, Marsh drained a trey with the Bulldogs down nine, picking up her teammates in the process. Confidence intact, Marsh scored 10 of her 20 points in the fourth period, tying the game at 54 with a 3-pointer and putting the Bulldogs up 59-55 with 2:51 left on another. Gardner and Marsh scored all of Ayala’s fourth-period points. “As a point guard, I’m a leader on this team and leaders have to step up,” Marsh said. “Coach told me to keep shooting, and I knew if I did, they’d start going in. We drove two hours to get here, we weren`t going to lose.” Perris didn`t fade though. In the game thanks to big performances by Aishah Sutherland (18 points, 12 rebounds) and Natasha Hadley (13 points, seven rebounds) inside, the Panthers got hot from outside late in the fourth. But Gardner and Ayala weren’t to be denied, as Ayala reached its first-ever section final. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

NEW MAYOR OF LETTERKENNY SAYS TACKLING TRAFFIC CONGESTION WILL BE TOP PRIORITY

first_imgMayor of Letterkenny James Pat McDaid with dad James and mum Peggy.The newly-elected Mayor of Letterkenny has said tackling traffic congestion in the town will be one of his biggest priorities in his term in office. Councillor James Pat McDaid, the youngest councillor on Donegal County Council at just 27, was elected to the post last night.Cllr McDaid, from Glenkeeragh, Newmills, told Donegal Daily he was delighted and humbled by his nomination by Cllr Ciaran Brogan and seconded by Cllr Liam Blaney. But he said there were now a number of key issues facing County Donegal’s largest town as it moved forward.“Letterkenny is a fantastic place to work, live and to do business in but he also has a number of immediate challenges.“One of the biggest ones for me is traffic congestion and I will be looking at that during my term as mayor including the pushing of the Bonagee Link.“Social housing is also a key issue as is the continued development of tourism in the town which were helped immensely by the two recent high profile visits we had,” he said. The son of James and Peggy McDaid, James Pat has two brothers Barry and Mark and also two sisters Aisling and Nicola.He added that putting on the Mayoral chain of office was a very proud moment for himself and for his family.“I am just so delighted to have been nominated and to have been elected Mayor of Letterkenny. It’s a huge honour and I just hope I can fulfil the faith that people have put in me,” he said.The winning captain of Glenswilly GAA Club’s only ever senior championship title in 2013, McDaid is back playing with the senior team in the Glen.It promises to be a busy year for the young farmer who many feel is only just starting out on what could be a very high-profile political career for many years to come.

first_imgMAVERICKS BARBERS: This week the male grooming experts at Mavericks Barbershop Letterkenny snip into the latest haircut trend to hit Donegal – the cropped fringe. As we enter the Easter season here in Mavericks we are noticing a change when the client begins their consultation for their next haircut. There is a big swing towards a textured style on top with the ever fashionable fade. The other big thing we see our clients doing is requesting a cropped fringe.Funny, it was only about 4 weeks ago that the Mavericks were sitting down and talking shop when one of them commented is the cropped fringe ever going to be as big or even properly happen around Donegal at all. Well, we got our answer. Lately the Mavericks have been working their magic on the latest trends, including the cropped fringe. Below is a sample of just a few:1. Medium fade, textured on top, cropped fringe.This version of the cropped fringe was produced with a lot of texture on top and some volume added to for good measure. The look was complete with a 0.5 medium fade which was dropped at the back and finished with a smooth transition. Styled with Dapper Dan Matt Paste. Barber Ronan. 2. High undercut, textured top.This hairstyle has real appeal right now the subtle undercut is very striking and the eye is drawn to it. There is no real over hang as the hair is quite short but it gives profound effect if styled properly. A 0.5 is brought right to the top. Hair textured on top using Dapper Dan Matt Clay. Barber Noel.3. Tapered sides and back, textured top with a cropped fringe.This haircut, done on one of our very own Mavericks is a cropped fringe with some volume and a bit of textured added for effect. The fade was given the cold shoulder here and a number two on the sides and back with a neat taper on the edges was preferred. Styled with Mavericks volume styling powder. Barber Darwyn.4. Medium fade, textured on top, cropped fringe & beard disconnected.This cropped fringe look was created using a 5 layered approach in order to achieve great detail in the finish. It continues in to a textured top with a zero fade on the sides and back. The beard is disconnected from the zero fade. Style with Mavericks volume styling powder. Barber Noel. 5. Medium fade with undercut, textured on top.This haircut was achieved with fading a 0.5 into a 1.5, performed below a high undercut. The top was left straight using all its length with a bit of texture and volume added to give the finishing look. Styled using vines hair tonic & dear barber shaping cream. Barber JP.The cropped fringe and the textured top seems to be what is in right now lads, but don’t be afraid to try something different.

Man Utd send their top scout on mission to land Seamus Coleman

first_imgMan Utd have sent their top scout to check out Donegal soccer star Seamus Coleman with a view to signing the Killybegs man.The Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho had told his talent spotter Thomas Bormann to go and see the 28 year old when he captains Ireland against Austria in today’s World Cup qualifier in Vienna.If Bormann likes what he sees then Mourinho will make Coleman a target during the January transfer window. Coleman has long been linked with a possible move to Old Trafford but this is the most concrete move yet.Mourinho has been on the look-out for a new right back to replace the raging Antonio Valencia, 31, and Coleman could fit the bill perfectly.Although he has said he is more than happy at Everton having recently signed a new deal, the lure of possibly finishing his playing days with Man Utd may be too much for Coleman to turn down.Man Utd send their top scout on mission to land Seamus Coleman was last modified: November 12th, 2016 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:donegalevertonJose MourinhoKillybegsMan Utdseamus colemanlast_img read more
