NCAA Final Four Set after blowouts, surprises

first_img(AP)—After a season of uncertainty, there’s a clear favorite heading to the Final Four.The Louisville Cardinals.While the other No. 1s have fallen by the wayside, the top overall seed romped to the Georgia Dome with four dominant wins in the NCAA tournament. And, if the Cardinals need any extra motivation, they’ve got it.Sophomore guard Kevin Ware, who played his high school ball in the Atlanta suburbs, sustained a gruesome injury in Sunday’s regional final against Duke. Before he headed off to surgery, he courageously urged his teammates to finish the job.Now, they would like nothing more than to win it all for Ware.“We talked about it every timeout, ‘Get Kevin home,’” coach Rick Pitino said.Next stop, the A-T-L, where three rather unlikely teams will be looking to knock off the mighty Cardinals.First up, the surprising Shockers from Wichita State in the semifinals Saturday. The No. 9 seed has already pulled off two major upsets, but this would be the biggest stunner yet.If Louisville makes it through to next Monday night’s title game, the opponent would be either Michigan, sporting a new group of Fab Wolverines, or Syracuse, which comes at you with the stingiest zone defense in college basketball. The two No. 4 seeds will meet in the other semifinal game.All are underdogs to the Cardinals, who are winning by an average of nearly 22 points a game in the tournament.“I thought we had a chance there, and then boom,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, who watched Louisville pull away for an 85-63 victory in the Midwest Regional final. “That’s what they do to teams. They can boom you.”In the other game Sunday, Michigan captured the South Regional with a 79-59 rout of Florida, leading from the opening tip. A day earlier, Syracuse shut down Marquette 55-39 to win the East Regional, while Wichita State punched its Final Four ticket with a 70-66 upset of Ohio State out West.In the final year of the Big East before it splits into two new conferences, Louisville and Syracuse provided a fitting send-off to a league that quickly became a basketball powerhouse after it was founded in 1979.Before it goes, this version of the Big East has a shot at one more national title.With two teams, no less.The Cardinals—who, like Syracuse, are moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference—shook off the incredible shock of Ware’s injury with about 6 1/2 minutes to go before halftime and blew out the second-seeded Blue Devils. The sophomore snapped his lower right leg after coming down awkwardly while defending a 3-point shot. The injury occurred right in front of the Louisville bench, where the players gasped and turned away quickly at the sight of Ware’s dangling leg, which was broken in two places.Russ Smith collapsed onto the floor, along with several players, and was crying as doctors attended to Ware. While Ware was loaded onto a stretcher, the Cardinals gathered at midcourt until Pitino called them over, saying the injured player wanted to talk to them before he left.“All he kept saying—and remember, the bone is six inches out of his leg—all he’s yelling is, ‘Win the game! Win the game!’” Pitino said. “I’ve never seen that in my life. We’re all distraught and all he’s saying is, ‘Win the game.’ Kevin is a special young man.”This is a special team. Smith scored 23 points. Gorgui Dieng had 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks.The Cardinals (33-5) simply refused to lose, breaking open a game that was tied at 42. They dove on the floor for loose balls. They pounded the boards ferociously. They contested every shot and swarmed around the Blue Devils like they had an extra player on the court.In a sense, they did, as Pitino reminded them during every timeout.“This is a gritty bunch,” the coach said. “From the beginning of the year to now, they’ve not had a bad game. I’m really proud of these guys.”Wichita State was the most improbable team to advance. The Shockers lived up to their nickname in the West, knocking off top-seeded Gonzaga in the second round and No. 2 seed Ohio State in the regional final Saturday night.Wichita State (30-8) built a 20-point lead on the Buckeyes, then managed to hang on through a nerve-racking final five minutes to pull off the latest upset in a tournament filled with them.That other team from Kansas isn’t content yet.“It feels very good,” said Cleanthony Early, a junior forward who, like most of his teammates, was passed over by higher-profile programs, “but we understand the fact that we’ve got to stay hungry and humble, because we’ve got two more games left to really be excited about.”Old-timers might remember Louisville and Wichita State as former conference rivals. The Cardinals were a member of the Missouri Valley Conference in the 1960s and ’70s, which meant annual games against the Shockers.Louisville holds a 19-5 edge in the series, but the teams haven’t played since 1976.Michigan (30-7) is headed back to the Final Four for the first time since the Fab Five era of the early 1990s, when the Wolverines lost in back-to-back national title games.

POLL SHOWS PEOPLE ARE NOT BELIEVING FIANNA FAIL – DOHERTY

first_imgSinn Féin’s Seanad referendum campaign director Pearse Doherty has said today’s poll showing the referendum to abolish the Seanad is set to be passed is evidence that people don’t believe Fianna Fáil when they say they will reform the Seanad. Pearse DohertyDeputy Doherty said the people have had enough of Fianna Fáil’s cronyism and their broken promises.He said “While not putting too much heed in opinion polls the continuing trend in this referendum campaign is that the yes side is leading and the referendum will pass. “This is despite Fianna Fáil’s attempt to hoodwink the people into keeping this Seanad on a promise that they will reform it.“However, even when they published their reform proposals we seen that they wanted to retain the most undemocratic measure contained within the current Seanad set up, the process of appointing people to the Seanad with the consent of the electorate.“The bottom line is that the people haven’t believed Fianna Fáil in this campaign, they are sick of their cronyism and their broken promises and this Friday they will come out and vote to abolish the Seanad.“With that said, it is important that people don’t get complacent and I would urge everyone to come out and vote on Friday and to vote yes.” POLL SHOWS PEOPLE ARE NOT BELIEVING FIANNA FAIL – DOHERTY was last modified: September 30th, 2013 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:Pearse DohertyreferendumSeanadlast_img read more

Like many other social sites, Nincha lets you upload photos, create polls, share bookmarks and review products.

From here you can follow others and share your uploads via email, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Digg and text message. While it’s too early to say which types of content will dictate the tone of this community, its obvious there are advantages to this type of social sharing. Rather then just adding your code to GitHub or your own website, you can share snippets of code to your favorite social profiles with a better chance of recruiting new programmers and contributors.

India Step Closer to Using LNG to Fuel Barges

first_imgzoom The Haldia Dock Complex, under India’s Kolkata Port Trust, revealed plans to set up LNG storage facilities near the Haldia Oil Jetty No. 1 as it designated some 10 acres of land for a period of 30 years for the project in light of the country’s efforts to introduce the use of LNG as fuel for barges.Namely, the move comes on the back of the Ministry of Shipping’s intent to reduce logistics cost and achieve the COP21 targets on cutting down pollution. Use of LNG as fuel for barges is expected to save around 20 percent on fuel, according to the ministry. Carbon Dioxide emissions are likely to get reduced by 20-25 percent and nitrogen/sulphur oxide emissions by 90 per cent.The efforts to introduce LNG as barge fuel is part of the overall efforts to promote transport on inland waterways and coastal shipping.The LNG storage project, which would also include laying pipelines and installing unloading arms through tender cum auction, will be undertaken on land lease model by granting lease of land by middle of December, 2016.LNG facilities are expected to be developed within 24 months from date of allotment of land.last_img read more
