Ray Parks Jr. does a Standhardinger

first_img“I’m definitely committed to Alab right now. Definitely committed, hopefully ‘til May,” says Filipino-American guard Bobby Ray Parks Jr. TIE BREAKER TIMES MANILA – Despite being selected during Sunday’s 2018 PBA Rookie Draft, Filipino-American guard Bobby Ray Parks Jr. is still committed to finish his obligations with San Miguel-Alab Pilipinas in the ASEAN Basketball League before jumping to pros.Parks, who was selected as second overall pick by Blackwater Elite, said he plans to finish first the 2018-2019 ABL season before moving to the PBA, the same path done by last year’s top overall pick Christian Standhardinger with the San Miguel Beermen.“I’m definitely committed to Alab right now. Definitely committed, hopefully ‘til May,” said Parks, who was not personally present during the PBA Rookie Draft due to Alab’s game against CLS Knights in Indonesia on Sunday night.“So hopefully, we’re still there at the end of the road. Trying to make history (with back-to-back titles),” he added. “I want to continue to just grow here and just enjoy my teammates (before moving to PBA).” Parks and Alab Pilipinas had a strong chance of winning its second consecutive ABL championship with its strong core led by Puerto Rican reinforcements Renaldo Balkman and Peter John Ramos.With Parks planning to finish the entire 2018-2019 ABL Season with Alab Pilipinas, he will not be making his professional debut until midway of the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.That move also will discredit the two-time UAAP and ABL MVP from winning the PBA Rookie of the Year award, same with Standhardinger, who was not present with the Beermen in the 2017-2018 PBA Philippine Cup.Under the PBA rules, a player must see action for at least 70 percent of the season for his team to be qualified for any individual award./PNlast_img read more

Bush scores hat trick as Argos get revenge on UNA

first_imgBush scores hat trick as Argos get revenge on UNA Share Shelby Bush scored a hat trick in UWF’s win at North Alabama (Photo by Chris Nelson) center_img    FLORENCE, Ala. – After being upset at home to snap a monster-winning streak almost an entire year ago, the West Florida women’s soccer team got revenge on defending Gulf South Conference Champion North Alabama with a 4-1 victory on the Lions’ home turf.Shelby Bush (Shalimar, Fla./Darton) recorded a hat trick and keeper Sarah Story (Hoover, Ala./Darton) played stellar defense with seven saves, including a blocked penalty kick, to keep the Argonauts (6-0, 2-0) undefeated on the season.On Oct. 23, 2011, UNA snapped UWF’s 56-game, regular-season GSC winning streak with a 2-0 victory over the Argos in Pensacola. UWF fell to Valdosta State in the conference semifinals and UNA went on to win the conference championship. Sunday afternoon was the Argos first shot at revenge.“To be able to go on the road against a very tough team like North Alabama, and come back from down a goal, speaks volumes to the mental toughness of this unit,” said UWF coach Joe Bartlinski.UNA got on the board early when Nikki Brown headed the ball into the back of the net off of a corner kick by Jennifer Osmond just 5:50 into the game. UWF took the momentum back 30 minutes later when Chelsea Palmer (Plano, Texas/Tyler JC) kicked the ball high into the air and into the box. Bush jumped into the air to attempt a header over the outstretched arms of the Lions’ keeper. Neither made solid contact, and the ball bounced before Bush shot a low header on a second attempt into the net to tie things up 1-1 with 34:50 on the clock.The Argos came out of halftime aggressive and worked the ball into the Lions’ box at the 50:55 mark. Daniela Cruz (San Jose, Costa Rica/University of Costa Rica) crossed the ball past a diving keeper to find Bush in front of the net for the easy score.Later in the second half, UNA was awarded a penalty kick after aggressive play in the box. Two-time GSC Player of the Year and current conference-leading scorer Chloe Roberts set up against Story, the defending GSC Defender of the Week. Story got the upper hand on Roberts, diving to save the shot and keep the momentum in UWF’s favor.Bush took advantage of one more opportunity with 66:47 on the clock. She worked the ball through a crowd of defenders and into the box, got tripped up, but snuck the ball under a diving keeper before tapping it into the goal with an outstretched leg before falling to the ground.Cruz added one more of her own five minutes later. She too drove the ball through four defenders before shooting it into the top of the net from the middle of the top of the box.UWF ended the game with 11 shots to UNA’s 12. A pair of UNA keepers tallied three saves in the game, and UNA had five corners to UWF’s three.Strong defensive play by the Argos, led by Taylor Harbison (Neptune Beach, Fla./Fletcher HS), kept Roberts scoreless for the first time this season.“I feel we can still get better,” Bartlinski said. “So, that’s what we’ll get to work on in practice this week.”UWF will play Christian Brothers (3-3, 1-2) on Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. at home.For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS#                          Soccer Game Summary (Final)                          West Florida Women’s Soccer     #7 West Florida vs #21 North Alabama (Sep 16, 2012 at Florence, Ala.) West Florida (6-0, 2-0) vs. North Alabama (4-1, 1-1) Date: Sep 16, 2012  Attendance: 233 Weather: Goals by period       1  2  Tot ——————————- West Florida……..  1  3 –  4 North Alabama…….  1  0 –  1  SCORING SUMMARY:  1.   5:50 UNA Nikki Brown (1) (Jennifer Osmond) – Kick off header  2.  34:50 UWF Shelby Bush (4) (unassisted) – Headed twice in left corner  3.  50:55 UWF Shelby Bush (5) (Daniela Cruz) – in front off net off cross  4.  66:47 UWF Shelby Bush (6) (unassisted) – knocked in off deflection while laying on the ground  5.  71:09 UWF Daniela Cruz (1) (unassisted) – drove through defenders, then upper middle Shots: West Florida 11, North Alabama 12 Saves: West Florida 7 (Sarah Story 7), North Alabama 3 (Schyler Arnold 2; Lauren Middleton 1)Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

No. 8 West Florida women’s tennis defeats No. 7 Hawaii Pacific 6-3

first_imgRESULTSPENSACOLA, Fla. – The No. 8-ranked University of West Florida women’s tennis team avenged a regular-season loss to No. 8 Hawaii Pacific by defeating the Sharks 7-2 at home on Wednesday at the Ralph “Skeeter” Carson Tennis Complex.  West Florida (18-3, 9-0 GSC) improves to 6-3 against nationally ranked opponents en route to the team’s fifth straight win. “It’s always good to get big wins this late in the season,” head coach Derrick Racine said. “Today we came out on fire and took two of the three doubles and then we had really good results all the way down our (singles) lineup.” West Florida’s No. 16-ranked doubles team of seniors Laure-Eline Faure (Toulouse, France) and Monika Kochanova (Bratislava, Slovakia) defeated Hawaii Pacific’s No. 11-ranked doubles team of Kristyna Hancarova and Nicole Hoynaski 8-5 at number one doubles en route to earning their first win over a nationally ranked opponent this year. Junior Nina Bubelova (Povazska Bystrica, Slovakia) and senior Fernanda Amaral (Curitiba, Brazil) won at number two doubles 8-5 while junior Katarina Dikosavljevic (Queensland, Australia) and sophomore Lisa May (Oviedo, Fla.) fell at number three doubles by a score of 4-8. “I think the key today was the doubles,” Racine said. “We came out and we believed that we could take two out of the three doubles and we did that today. We feel really good heading into the later part of our season.” Faure defeated No. 16 Hancarova at number one singles 6-4, 4-6, 10-5 and improves to 3-2 against nationally ranked opponents on the year. No. 18 Kochanova fell at number two singles 6-7, 1-6 and drops to 6-3 on the year against regionally tanked opponents. Dikosavljevic won at number three singles 2-6, 6-0, 6-0 while Bubelova won at number four singles 7-6, 6-3. Amaral won 6-3, 6-1 at number five singles while junior Sarai Flores (Mexico City, Mexico) won 6-3, 6-2 at number six singles. West Florida will next face No. 26 Concordia (N.Y.) on Thursday, April 2 at 1:30 p.m. CT.

Impulse down Frontiers to win Japan X Bowl

first_img Panasonic defensive back Emory Polley celebrates after an interception return touchdown late in the second quarter of Monday’s Japan X Bowl. | KAZ NAGATSUKA Panasonic Impulse quarterback Tetsuo Takata rushes as Fujitsu Frontiers linebacker Trasaun Nixon attempts to tackle him during the Japan X Bowl at Tokyo Dome on Monday. | KAZ NAGATSUKA IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 Fujitsu Frontiers, Panasonic Impulse, X Bowl Japan GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES RELATED PHOTOS It was the first X League title since 2008 and seventh overall for the Impulse, who play collegiate champion Ritsumeikan University of Kyoto Prefecture for the overall national title in the Rice Bowl on Jan. 3 at Tokyo Dome.“My players did a great job. That’s all I can say now,” Panasonic head coach Nobuyoshi Araki said. “The players have grown as human beings. That is what I’m happy about.”Takata, who went into the game with three overall national championships already under his belt, had another heroic big-game performance.With the Frontiers up 21-10 midway through the fourth quarter, Impulse linebacker Shogo Matsunaga intercepted Fujitsu quarterback Colby Cameron’s first-down pass and returned it to the Frontiers 47.On the very next play, Takata hit Tatsuya Tonka with a spectacular scoring strike to make the score 21-16 (two-point conversion failed).After forcing the Frontiers to a three-and-out, the Impulse had the ball at the Frontiers 33. Takata led the five-play winning drive that was capped by a 15-yarder to Koyama, then ran into the end zone and a successful two-point conversion gave them a 24-21 lead.The Impulse forced Cameron to fumble on fourth-down-10 and recovered the ball for the victory.“I was struggling earlier in the game. This is a team effort,” Takata, the game’s MVP said. “In the past, we might have lost this type of game. But we never gave up tonight. This is our mentality.”The Frontiers took a 7-0 lead when Cameron threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to rookie tight end Yuji Mizuno in the first possession. But the Frontiers failed to score in the next six possessions.The Impulse started slow offensively and their only drive to the Frontiers’ red zone (inside 20 yards) did not come until late in the second quarter. They advanced to the Frontiers 9, but were kept scoreless when a run play by Shun Yokota on fourth-down-1 was stopped with 0:47 left in the first half.Rather than kneeling down to run out the clock, the Frontiers chose to play out the first half, but it turned out to be a bad decision. Cameron’s pass on the third play was picked off by Emory Polley, who returned it for pick six, making it a 7-7 tie at halftime.“I knew they were going to be trying to get out of bounds and play the sidelines because of the two-minute situation,” said Polley. “So I played off, showed off, but I was looking for it. I read the receiver, read his job and I cut it.“The main this was getting pressure, first and foremost. We tried to disguise looks a little bit. Just trying to always confuse him, because we knew he was going to be able to throw the ball, as he did, he kind of torched us. But we were able to make some plays, which was good.”The Impulse made it to 10-7 on a field goal with 9:45 remaining in the third quarter, but the Frontiers wasted no time in countering, making it 14-10 on Cameron’s 16-yard scoring toss to Junpei Yoshimoto.Cameron threw another touchdown pass, this time to Takeshi Akiyama, making it a two-possession game with 7:08 left in the final quarter. They looked to have taken one step closer to defending their title when they forced a punt to the Impulse with 5:21 to go, but Matsunaga’s interception brought the momentum back to the Impulse. KEYWORDS The X League championship is heading to western Japan for the first time since 2008. So is the overall national championship.Tetsuo Takata threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to Taiji Koyama with 1:11 remaining as the Panasonic Impulse defeated the defending national champion Fujitsu Frontiers 24-21 on Monday at Tokyo Dome in the 29th Japan X Bowl.last_img read more

Press bitesize: Gloucester (h) – Gallagher Premiership

first_imgBack on track Dave Attwood says Bristol Bears are determined to get their Gallagher Premiership campaign back on track when they take on one of his former clubs, Gloucester at Ashton Gate on Saturday.The Bears are four games without a win in the league, but head into the game off the back of a successful Challenge Cup campaign, finishing unbeaten in Pool Four to set up a home quarter final against Dragons in April.And Attwood says Bristol can take confidence into Saturday’s West Country derby clash.“We lost our way a bit in the Premiership over that Christmas period, and no one is more aware of that than we are,” he said.“We had a couple of good results to push to the top of the pool in Europe, and that’s given us some good mental space around the calibre of team that we can be.”Last weekend was not a result we are thrilled about and we definitely feel like there is a point to prove, not just in terms of the Premiership, but also in terms of the kind of rugby we play and put out there for the fans – and also our record at Ashton Gate. So, there are plenty of things on the line for us.” Derby ding-dong Pat Lam is expecting another thrilling derby encounter at Ashton Gate on Saturday, as his side take on Johan Ackermann’s Cherry and Whites.”Both teams played great rugby last year and Gloucester are going really well this year too. Everyone will have that dip at some point, it’s about how you bounce back from that. We’ve seen an improvement in the last two games from us – even though it was a draw last week, we did some good stuff.”We’re looking forward to getting back to Ashton Gate. The last time we played there in the Premiership, we weren’t good, so it’s going to be a great game. Both teams like to use it, with a lot of physicality, so it will be a good challenge.” Familiar faces Attwood spent two years at Kingsholm from 2009-2011, playing 47 games for the Cherry and Whites – and the 32-year-old is relishing coming up against his former club this weekend.“It’s always a nice thing to play against a team that you have represented – particularly when there are one of two familiar faces who are still there. Admittedly, it was eight or ten years ago since I was in the Shed, so there’s not that many familiar faces there anymore, but there’s still a few and that’s a nice element.“My parents took a real affinity to me being a Gloucester player. They live on the south edge of Gloucester, so they have a lot of friends who are in that camp, and while they very much welcomed me back to Bristol – they’ve followed Bristol for a long time – they are very excited and it will be a good family occasion for me particularly.”center_img Dave Attwood in action for Gloucester in 2010.last_img read more

An unanticipated problem was encountered, check back soon and try again Error Code: MEDIA_ERR_UNKNOWN The wonderful run by the U.S. men’s national soccer team in the World Cup is over, which means it’s time for some people who love soccer to try just a bit too hard to make it mean more than it does.To be sure, Tim Howard was spectacular. People who say they don’t care about soccer cared passionately about this. In a country driven by winning, Americans by the millions realized that there can be both joy and dignity in missing the quarterfinals.(Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports)(Mark J. Rebilas, USA TODAY Sports)But let’s not over-interpret it – although I’m afraid some of us already have. If you haven’t heard the talk, it goes something like this:The 2014 World Cup will take soccer to an entirely new level in this country. People will want to follow these players on TV, if not in person. U.S. kids will want to play the game even more. And, if you don’t love soccer now, there must be something wrong with you.Whenever there’s a big international sports event involving a U.S. team, the nation invariably rallies behind it. It has happened in ice hockey at various Olympic Games, most memorably with the Miracle on Ice in 1980, and as recently as 4 1/2 months ago in Sochi. It has happened in women’s soccer several times, especially with the historic 1999 Women’s World Cup. It happened in Olympic gymnastics in 1984, and again in the women’s team event in 1996. And on and on it goes.It’s foolhardy for fans of any international sport to believe that the sport itself has captured the attention of the nation. We fall in love with the team and the sport and the moment because of national pride. Nationalism draws most of us to these games, not a particular love of soccer or hockey or gymnastics. Those are our boys. Those are our girls. That’s why we care.(Reuters)(Reuters)That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give soccer its due. It’s the world’s game even if it’s not ours, so when a U.S. team plays well against nations that live and die with the sport, it’s especially gratifying. Because the World Cup builds for several weeks, it creates its own natural crescendo, hence the street parties that never would be possible for a one-off Olympic event, especially in the winter. (Memo to Major League Baseball: After seeing how those big afternoon games bring people together, why not do the unthinkable and consider going back to a day game or two for the World Series?)And because several generations of U.S. children have grown up playing a sport that their parents or grandparents still barely understand, a natural fan base has developed that can’t begin to rival that of football, basketball and baseball on a daily basis, but is significant nonetheless.Now, time for a reality check: You think Tim Howard is big today? He is, no doubt about it. But gymnast Mary Lou Retton was bigger. (She also won, which is something Howard and Co. of course did not.) Soccer star Brandi Chastain made the covers of Time, Newsweek, Sports Illustrated and People in the same week, something that’s never happened to anyone else, in sports or life. And let’s not even begin to talk about the national appeal of Olympic hockey players Mike Eruzione, Jim Craig and their teammates in the winter of 1980.What exactly will change because of the thrilling World Cup run by the Americans? New fans were born for sure. But are the best boy athletes in the nation going to stop dreaming of careers in the NFL, the NBA and MLB and start planning for life as soccer players because the United States made the Round of 16? Probably not.So, while U.S. optimism dictates that the team will go further in the 2018 World Cup, reality says it might not.There’s certainly no need to force it. When some U.S. broadcasters change their grammar to sound British for a few weeks, they’re trying too hard. When some fans want to tell us that this year’s World Cup – not 1994’s, or 2002’s, or 2010’s – will be the one to change everything, why don’t we wait and see?A moment like this should be remembered not for what it might lead to, but for what it was.
