first_imgJo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ Arinze Onuaku PHOTO BY TRISTAN TAMAYO/INQUIRER.netJust in case anybody forgot, Arinze Onuaku was the best import in this conference two years ago. And he reminded people why, putting together a performance that helped Meralco open the PBA Commissioner’s Cup strong Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.Onuaku punched in 30 points, missing just one of 15 attempts from the floor, while adding 19 rebounds, six assists, three steals and four blocks in a 43-minute stint that helped the Bolts stop the Columbian Dyip, 116-103.ADVERTISEMENT Ancajas-Sultan title tiff moves to Fresno Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “I believe that our locals, the other guys, also played well. KG (Canaleta), JD (Dillinger), and the other guys,” Black said. “Great effort, great start for us coming off the All-Filipino. Hopefully, we can sustain this performance the rest of the conference.”CJ Aiken played much better offensively with 21 points that went with 18 rebounds after scoring only nine in his PBA debut in Columbian’s win over Blackwater, but the Dyip obviously need more than just that if he wants to keep his job.Jerramy King, who erupted for a career-high 30 points three days ago, had only 12 points this time on a sputtering 4-of-14 shooting from the field.Until that late Meralco spurt, though, the Dyip—riding on a strong opening victory over Blackwater—kept backing the Bolts into a corner, establishing control in the first half and staying in the thick of the fight for most of the final two periods.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

‘Friends of TABOU’ Identifies with School for the Deaf

first_imgA group of professionals under the banner of “Friends of Tabou’s” (FOT) recently donated assorted items of food to several homes housing children with disabilities, including the School for the Deaf in Virginia, outside Monrovia.FOT President Jarlawah A. Tonpo, who made the donation on Friday, November 3 (Thanksgiving Day), said the items represented the organization’s way of reaching out to those in need.“This institution will continue to identify with all in need by making donations from their individual members to them to overcome their lifetime of challenges.“Taking into consideration Thanksgiving Day, we decided to move around and make a small contribution, with the prayer that God will provide the bigger ones in the future. All our members are from a refugee background, but we pray never to be refugees again,” Tonpo said.According to him, the return of refugees after the official end of the civil crisis led them to start FOT to lend a helping hand to institutions and individuals in society, especially the physically challenged.While in displaced camps in neighboring countries, Mr. Tonpo said many of his compatriots were sponsored by other people; something which motivated members of the organization to reach out to others in need.“Many of us who were sponsored while in exile continue to be blessed through the Almighty God. And so we think it is important also to share with others in our society,” he added.Andrew Tugbeh, interpreter and teacher at the School for the Deaf, hailed the organization for reaching out to them, especially for providing food. “We know that it was not easy living in different countries. We want to appreciate you in a special way and pray that you will continue to be blessed,” Mr. Tugbeh said, receiving the items.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Former Newcastle defender set for move to Norwich?

first_imgNorwich City are lining up a late January swoop for Inter Milan and former Newcastle defender Davide Santon.The right-back has made just nine appearances for the Serie A side since he completed a permanent move to the San Siro from the Toon in the summer.And now, according to Sky Italia, Norwich are keen to bring the Italian back to England as they bid to sure up their defence in their battle for Premier League survival.Santon hasn’t featured for Inter since October and it has been suggested the player is open to a return to England.The Canaries have the second worst defensive record in the league and shipped five at home to Liverpool at the weekend, prompting manager Alex Neil to reassess his transfer options.And the Scot has now identified Santon as a player who can bring experience to his back line and has ordered Norwich’s board to make contact with Inter before the transfer window shuts. 1 Davide Santon last_img read more

Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink praises ‘beautiful’ Manchester City

first_imgGuus Hiddink has bemoaned Chelsea’s inability to turn their dominance against Manchester City into a lead, having conceded two goals on the counter-attack in a 3-0 loss to the Citizens.Sergio Aguero struck twice in open play, and then from the penalty spot, to hand City a routine victory as the Premier League draws to a close.In the grand scheme of things, the loss has little impact for the Blues, as they have nothing to play for this season.Still, it was a humbling defeat at the hands of a rival, and the game showed just how far City are ahead of the West London club.However, Hiddink’s men had chances to go ahead, and they actually controlled more of the possession than the Manchester club.City scored twice after Chelsea had attacked, and Hiddink has criticised his players for failing to take advantage of their dominance, allowing the visitors to capitalise with their ‘beautiful counter-attacks’.“Manchester City are proven to be a very strong team, not just this season but in the last weeks,” the Dutch boss said.“It is not for nothing that they are in the last four in Europe.“We were warned they could have a beautiful counter-attack to harm us and it happened from our corner and made a beautiful goal for them.“The second was similar and they had a counter as well. It means we were in control without having the ultimate bite to kill it off.”If there is one positive to come from this season at Stamford Bridge, it has been the rise of certain young players into the first-team.Hiddink has explained that he has been utilising the academy stars to give them the chance to show themselves off to incoming manager Antonio Conte.They must show themselves,” he said of the Chelsea squad in the closing weeks of the campaign.“That is why we have put some young players in. We might not win any silverware, but give them a chance against strong teams to get them experience and I must say to pick out Loftus-Cheek, he is starting his third game and is gathering the experience to be grown up.”last_img read more

Trippier says there’s no tension with Walker despite Spurs and England rivalry

first_img1 Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker may be battling for the same shirt with Tottenham and England but there is no tension between the pair, who were happy to share a tent on the Three Lions’ military boot camp.Walker was already first-choice right-back for club and country when Trippier swapped Burnley for Spurs two years ago, a move that immediately pitched the pair into battle.For most of the time Walker has come out on top but Mauricio Pochettino favoured Trippier in big games against Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United towards the end of last season and that was enough to catch the eye of England boss Gareth Southgate.That puts them head-to-head in a new dressing room but they remain fast friends and teamed up when England were whisked away to the Royal Marines’ training centre in Devon for 48 hours of demanding exercises over the weekend.“Me and Walks were the only ones to get our tent the wrong way round,” said Trippier with a smile.“It was getting a bit too dark so we didn’t have time to put it back round…it was already up so we thought ‘we may as well just sleep in it’. He doesn’t snore…he’s a good sleeper!“Walks is a good lad, a good friend.”That friendship started all the way back at England Under-17 level, when Walker was still a central defender and Trippier had the right-back role to himself, and shows no sign of strain despite their professional ambitions.“I know we both play the same position but it is football and whoever plays, we are always there for each other,” said Trippier.“We always help each other, no matter who we play against, and it will be no different with England. I want to play and he wants to play but if he plays, I’ll help him. If I get picked, I know he will do the same for me.“I believe I can play at this level.”Trippier spent his formative years at Manchester City, who picked him up as a nine-year-old, but that did not stop him looking at their closest rivals for inspiration.Southgate has already spoken about his crossing ability being among the best in the Premier League and Trippier said it was David Beckham’s famed delivery that grabbed him as a boy.“He has been one of my idols and I have always practised since I was a young boy at City,” he said.“I always practise in training at Tottenham and if I can create and assist as many goals as I can I will be happy.“I don’t spend too long. just get a couple of mannequins and practise, either dead balls or running on to it.”For all of his skills, Beckham did not have much to teach an aspiring full-back about the art of defence, but Trippier was taking tips from another Red Devils great.“Gary Neville, I liked watching him,” he said. “He was a very good defender and he was great going forward as well. I have always watched how he defends and how he plays.“He was my main person to watch as a full-back.” Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker fight for the same shirt for both club and country last_img read more
