West Florida Men’s Basketball Falls Just Short to Alabama Huntsville 77-71

first_img Share Jan. 19, 2008 Box Score  PENSACOLA, Fla. – For the second consecutive game, the West Florida Men’s Basketball team went down to the wire with their opponents, but couldn’t get the ball to bounce their way at the end. The Argonauts drop to 10-6 on the season, and 0-2 in the conference. With the Argos down by two points just inside two minutes to play, Josh Jackson’s driving floater rimmed in and out and it looked like Charles Bouie had the offensive rebound, but he was called for a foul. Alabama Huntsville hit the free throws, and West Florida could not quite rebound from that momentum changer.The Argos had one last chance, as Ryan Henry hit a three pointer to close within 74-71, with 30 seconds to play, and then Lucas Malone stole the inbounds pass. However, the Argos couldn’t convert and Alabama Huntsville hit three free throws to close out the contest. Charles Bouie had an outstanding game for West Florida before he fouled out. The Junior forward scored 16 points, with two blocks and two steals. Ryan Henry led West Florida with 18 points, including four 3-pointers.The game was close throughout, with 13 lead changes and 13 different times the score was tied. West Florida was out-rebounded 41-32, but evened that out by forcing 18 turnovers and committing only nine. The Argonauts were able to get 71 shots attempted to only 47 for Alabama Huntsville, but the Chargers connected on 51% of their shots to counter balance the steals and offensive rebounds that West Florida was piling up.Kenny Holmes, who scored 7 points and grabbed five rebounds in the first half, played only a minute in the second half due to a knee injury. Lucas Evangelista and Lucas Malone both played well off the bench to counteract the loss of Holmes. Evangelista scored four points and grabbed six rebounds, while Malone scored two points and had a big steal at the end of the game that gave the Argos a chance at tying the game in final seconds.Deondre Boynton, the conference leader in assists, dished out six assists and added 10 points. Meanwhile, Josh Jackson scored 11 points off the bench, and added two steals. The Argonauts connected on 13-15 free throws, and had a lead just inside three minutes to play, as each team hit several big shots down the stretch in the second half, for big momentum swings. Alabama Huntsville happened to have the momentum in their favor at the end.Head Coach Don Hogan likes the competitiveness of his team, despite two straight close defeats. “I am proud of the guys, they play hard and have put us in position to win the last two games, but our opponents hit some big shots, and that is not always going to happen. I like the way our guys responded when things weren’t going our way. We keep trying to improve and build off each game.”West Florida will travel to Carrollton, Georgia for their next conference game on Monday night. The Argonauts will look to get their first conference win, after dropping two close contests. Game time is 6:30 central time and will be broadcast on stretch internet. West Florida earned their first conference win last year, with an overtime win over West Georgia, and will look to get the first conference win at the wolves expense again this year.

Cyr Looks to the Future, Shares Wisdom from Years Gone By

first_img   PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida softball team has created history over the years since the team’s inception in 1986. Throughout the years, the team has faced obstacles and challenges but has always overcome them. Long days spent on the field practicing and perfecting plays or hits has paid off by the show of numerous awards and recognitions. The team’s success cannot be accredited just to the players, but also to head coach Tami Cyr.  Softball coach Tami Cyr has a long history with the University of West Florida. This season Cyr enters her 19th year at the university and her 17th season as the school’s head softball coach. Taking over the program in 1994, she spent the two years prior as assistant head coach under the direction of Coach Doug Palmer. Since Cyr took over, the softball team has made appearances in the Gulf South Conference Tournament every season since the program joined the conference in 1995. The Argonauts have won three conference titles and two South Region championships during Cyr’s tenure, in addition to making ten South Region Tournament appearances and two appearances in the NCAA National Tournament.Recently, Cyr earned her 900th career win against Lynn University. “It is quite an accomplishment to win 900 games, and I am humble and grateful more than anything,” said Cyr. “Humbled in that I have been able to go to work every day and do what I love to do, and grateful in that I have been able to call UWF my home for the last 19 years. Throughout our program’s history the school has had a wonderful accumulation of great UWF softball teams, led by young women that are dedicated to the winning tradition.” After 19 years under Cyr, close bonds have been formed by softball team members. Every year during homecoming, softball alumni come back to campus and reconnect with one another. “I look forward to homecoming weekend every year,” said Cyr. “It is amazing to see the eternal bond the teammates have with one another. They are all part of an undying tradition, a tradition that will forever define who they are and for what they so unselfishly stood for.”During Cyr’s career as UWF head coach, she has mentored 69 All-GSC players, and 23 All-South Region honorees. She coached two-time GSC East Player of the Year Jill Burnett, 1999 GSC MVP Blake Baskin, 2005 GSC Pitcher of the Year Amber Browning and 2009 GSC Pitcher of the Year Jillian Lafrance.As each season comes and goes it is important to work harder and build upon each year. Coach Cyr focuses on improving upon each season by recruiting quality student athletes. “Every year, players graduate that have given their heart and soul to our program,” said Cyr. “It is my responsibility to replace these athletes with young ladies that are willing and able to carry on the Argonaut legacy.”   At practices or during games, coaches give advice on how to hit or pitch well, but sometimes the best lesson is the pride that is instilled within the heart of an athlete. “It is my responsibility to provide an environment that is conducive to a strong sense of love and acceptance,” said Cyr. “To teach ladies on the team how to have pride that extends from within them to the UWF softball program is so important.”When Coach Cyr is not on the field coaching or traveling with the team, she enjoys the simple things in life. Hanging out by the beach and pool with her two-year-old son or playing an exhilarating game of beach volleyball brings her the most joy. The softball team is back in action this Thursday when they face Ouachita Baptist as part of the Gulf South Conference Crossover in Decatur, Ala. with games starting at 4 pm.Print Friendly Version Cyr Looks to the Future, Shares Wisdom from Years Gone By Sharecenter_img Tami Cyr has won 910 games in her collegiate career (Photo by Bill Stockland) last_img read more

Nara, Date-Krumm eliminated in first round at Pan Pacific Open

first_imgKurumi Nara crashed out in the first round of the Pan Pacific Open on Tuesday in a grueling three-set match against eighth-seeded Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro.It was a bad day all round for the host nation as 43-year-old veteran Kimiko Date-Krumm also made an early exit with a defeat against Belarusian Victoria Azarenka. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 KEYWORDS Suarez Navarro broke Nara’s serve to open their match at Ariake Colosseum and survived enough rallies to advance to the second round with a 6-1, 2-6, 6-2 victory.“It was really a tough match,” said the 26-year-old Suarez Navarro, who is ranked 19th in the world. “Kurumi played really well, she had a really good backhand and she fought for every point, every ball.”Nara’s backhand kept many first-set points in doubt, but she was undone by frequent unforced errors on her backhand and a poor service game that allowed Suarez Navarro to seize the initiative with aggressive returns.The 36th-ranked Nara, Japan’s top-ranked player, made better use of her serve in the second set, and combined that by finishing off more rallies at the net, but she left many opportunities wanting.Nara was even more hesitant in the third set and quickly fell behind 4-0 only to battle back to test her opponent’s resolve. But grit alone was not enough to overcome such a large deficit.“I really wanted to win,” Nara said after falling at the first hurdle at this tournament for the third year in a row.“I couldn’t play my tennis when I really needed to. This has been a really disappointing match.”In the following match, Date-Krumm took the opening set but struggled in the second set with physical issues and Azarenka prevailed 3-6, 6-0, 6-2 to advance to the next round.“I dislike retiring more than losing,” Date-Krumm said. “It’s regrettable I couldn’t see how things would have played out had my physical condition been just a little better.”Radwanska advancesSeoul AFP-JIJITop seed Agnieszka Radwanska hammered Polona Hercog Tuesday as she set out on a quest to successfully defend a title for the first time at the WTA Korea Open.The Polish world No. 5, returning to action after her U.S. Open second-round defeat to China’s Peng Shuai, won 6-3, 6-3 to get her title defense off the mark.Former Seoul champion Maria Kirilenko, playing on a wildcard after missing three months of the season with a knee injury, beat Croatia’s Donna Vekic 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 to reach round two.“It was a tough time after my injury last year. I haven’t played much this year and after Wimbledon it got worse so I couldn’t play much of the summer either,” said the Russian.“I really missed playing and I’m happy I could win this match today, because it was my first long match so far this year,” added Kirilenko, who lifted the trophy in 2008. Not her day: Kurumi Nara plays a return to Carla Suarez Navarro in the first round of the Pan Pacific Open on Tuesday at Ariake Colosseum.

Senate President Kelly Calls On House Majority To Negotiate A Budget

first_imgThe House added the dividend amendment Wednesday in passing its rewrite of the budget. Lawmakers have yet to finalize a separate state operating budget. Sen. Kelly, R-Fairbanks: “The State of Alaska is two weeks away from a government shutdown that will have serious consequences for Alaskans, and will prove costly for our public and private sectors. The Senate calls on the House Majority, again, to put aside the politics and resume negotiations on an operating budget. This must be our highest priority. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The special session is scheduled to end Friday, with the new fiscal year starting on July 1. Senate President Pete Kelly, R-Fairbanks is calling on the House Majority to resume negotiations on an operating budget following continued threats of a government shutdown. “The House Majority’s actions today add more than $800 million to a state budget that they have refused to cut. This clearly demonstrates how desperate they are to drive up state spending any way they can, to justify an income tax that is not needed under the Senate’s proposal or under the governor’s proposed compromise. “The Senate has actively sought a compromise on an operating budget to provide certainty to the public and private sectors. The House Majority has refused to negotiate this week, canceling two conference committee meetings and a floor session.center_img “The House Majority’s actions today on the capital budget are a distraction from the negotiations we should be having – that the Senate wants to be having – on an operating budget. They are running out the clock and threatening Alaska jobs and the economy. The Alaska Senate must decide whether to accept a capital budget that would pay Alaskans a full dividend from the state’s oil-wealth fund. “The Senate will continue to prioritize an operating budget and hopes the House Majority will join us in fulfilling our responsibility to Alaskans.”last_img read more
