BASSETERRE, St Kitts, (CMC) – Left-hander Vishaul Singh led a sterling Guyana Jaguars fightback with a high-quality knock but the visitors were forced to follow on, leaving Leeward Islands Hurricanes in control of the third round encounter heading into today’s final day at Warner Park.Resuming the third day on Saturday tottering on 53 for six in their first innings, Jaguars battled their way to a respectable 206, with Vishaul narrowly missing out on three figures when he was left stranded on 97.Sherfane Rutherford, batting at number nine, chipped in with 32 but debutant off-spinner Terrance Ward claimed four for 48 and seamer Jeremiah Louis (2-52) and off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall (2-62) two wickets apiece, to keep the pressure on.Following on by 206 runs, Jaguars ended the day on 53 for two with captain Leon Johnson carrying the fight with an unbeaten 27.They lost Chandrapaul Hemraj without scoring at the end of the sixth over with the score on two, caught at third slip sparring at a wide ball from seamer Mervin Matthew.And Tagenarine Chanderpaul spent 106 balls over his 16 before falling lbw to part-time leg-spinner Nkrumah Bonner, as Jaguars slipped to 35 for two.However, Johnson then came to his team’s rescue with a knock that has so far lasted 103 balls and included four fours.Jaguars require a further 153 runs to avoid an innings defeat.Earlier, Vishaul, resuming the day on 17, faced 182 deliveries and struck 12 boundaries, to hold the innings together and carry his side to lunch on 180 for nine.The day started poorly when Keemo Paul padded up to the third ball of the morning and was adjudged lbw to Ward but Vishaul and Rutherford then put on an invaluable 60 for the eighth wicket to rally the innings.Rutherford faced 60 balls and counted four fours and a six before driving Ward to cover where Jahmar Hamilton took a brilliant catch at 117 for eight.Romario Shepherd holed out to long-off off Ward for 13 but Vishaul found a handy partner in Keon Joseph (15) to add 75 for the final wicket and further frustrate Hurricanes.HURRICANES 1st Innings 412-9 decl.Jaguars 2nd Innings(overnight 53 for six)T Chanderpaul c Cornwall b Louis 3C Hemraj c Carty b Simon 23*L Johnson b Louis 2V Singh not out 97V Permaul run out 0S Chanderpaul c Hamilton b Cornwall 5+A Bramble c Louis b Ward 0K Paul lbw b Paul 4S Rutherford c Hamilton b Ward 32R Shepherd c Louis b Ward 13K Joseph c Bonner b Cornwall 15Extras (b2, lb1, nb4, pen.5) 12TOTAL (all out, 63.4 overs) 206Fall of wickets: 1-6, 2-8, 3-39, 4-39, 5-47, 6-53, 7-57, 8-117, 9-131, 10-206.Bowling: Louis 15-2-52-2, Matthew 6-4-8-0, Cornwall 23.4-6-62-2, Simon 8-0-28-1, Ward 10-1-48-4, Bonner 1-1-0-0.JAGUARS 2nd Innings (following on)T Chanderpaul lbw b Bonner 16C Hemraj c Hughes b Matthew 0*L Johnson not out 27V Permaul not out 6Extras (b4) 4TOTAL (2 wkts, 41 overs) 53Fall of wickets: 1-2, 2-35.Bowling: Louis 8-7-1-0, Matthew 8-6-3-1, Cornwall 9-3-17-0, Simon 5-1-15-0, Ward 7-3-7-0, Bonner 3-1-6-1, Carty 1-1-0-0.Position: Jaguars trail by 153 runs with eight second innings wickets remaining.
When Andrea Edoria was diagnosed with a brain aneurysm at age 3, she spent six months at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.Fifteen years later, Edoria, who has fully recovered, is a spokesperson for CHLA — and a future Trojan.Good cause · Shiny Toy Guns performed a concert on Friday as part of Sigma Chi’s Derby Days. Proceeds were donated to CHLA. – Photo courtesy of Sigma Chi Through her work with CHLA, Edoria connected with her dream school, USC. Specifically, she connected with the Sigma Chi fraternity, which raised more than $50,000 for the Children’s Miracle Network at CHLA last year during its annual Derby Days philanthropy. Derby Days, which consists of a series of activities and a concert, typically raises more money than most other fraternity philanthropies combined. Admission to the concert typically costs $20 to $25 and the fraternity also collects funds from corporate sponsors.According to Lisa Coleman, assistant director of the Children’s Miracle Network at CHLA, most of the money goes toward meeting the needs of families with ill children — families like Edoria’s.Edoria met members of Sigma Chi for the first time last year, when she was invited to a barbecue. She was asked to speak at Derby Days to recount her experiences as a young child battling illness at CHLA. She has since been in constant contact with members of the fraternity.“I’ve met these [Sigma Chi] boys on different occasions, and they’re really good guys at heart,” Edoria said. “They’re really supporting a good cause.”For Edoria, who just recently committed to USC, working with Sigma Chi is just the beginning of her relationship with USC.“It’s like a dream come true,” she said.Edoria will be studying journalism at the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. She said she is very excited to become a Trojan and is grateful for the support she has received from members of Sigma Chi.“Since I was about 7 or 8 years old, I have always wanted to write. When I came across USC, I knew that was where I wanted to go,” she said.Though she officially becomes a Trojan in the fall, Edoria said she already feels like part of the Trojan family thanks to her relationship with Sigma Chi.“I definitely feel welcome,” she said.Although new restrictions from the Interfraternity Council forced Sigma Chi to limit the length of Derby Days this year, Stephen Lindgren, a member of Sigma Chi and one of the chairs of Derby Days, said the fraternity still had high hopes for the amount of money they could raise.“We’re hoping to match last year’s donations,” Lindgren said. “We feel a deep connection to Children’s Hospital and to Andrea.”
Reserve guard Ben Brust began the season on a good note: leading the Badgers with 14 points on 5-for-11 shooting.[/media-credit]Once again, an early-season game at the Kohl Center finished with a score more apt for a Badger football game than a matchup on the hardwood.The No. 14 Wisconsin Badger men’s basketball team (1-0) opened its regular season with an 85-31 victory over the Kennesaw State Owls (0-1) Saturday afternoon. Sophomore guard Ben Brust displayed the shooting prowess that has heightened expectations for him as a key contributor off the bench this season, tying for the team-lead with 14 points on 5-for-11 shooting from the field. The Badgers other’ sophomore guard, Josh Gasser, also scored 14 points while redshirt junior guard/forward Ryan Evans finished with 13. Star senior point guard Jordan Taylor finished with 11 points, seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.“When you let a team shoot 59 percent, they shoot 60 percent from three, they out-rebound you by 20, I don’t think there’s too much more that you can say, except you’ve got to go back to the drawing board,” KSU head coach Lewis Preston said.Kennesaw State, an Atlantic Sun Conference school of 23,452 students in Kennesaw, Ga., struggled to find much of an offensive rhythm that would match the bevy of scorers Wisconsin was able to put on the floor. Ten Badgers saw at least 10 minutes of playing time and scored. The Owls were led by junior guard Markeith Cummings with 18 points, but as a team, shot only 23.3 percent from the field, 20 percent from three-point territory and 56.3 percent from the free throw line.“I never read too much into one game,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “I know they were a little short-handed, their coach is new and he’s trying to install a system.”Jared Berggren scored Wisconsin’s first points of the season at the 18:52 mark with a three-pointer to match Kennesaw State’s opening trey from Spencer Dixon. Berggren, a redshirt junior forward/center finished with 11 points and three rebounds. Both teams attempted to settle in over the next two minutes until Taylor converted a layup at 16:27. From there, the Badgers scored 11 unanswered points. Following a media timeout at 11:46, the Owls finally scored again on a fastbreak layup by Markeith Cummings.Kennesaw State only scored three more points in the first half, on a free throw by Cummings and a jumper from guard Spencer Dixon, and entered halftime trailing Wisconsin 41-8.Struggling to hit shots and find open teammates, the Owls were clearly overmatched by the Badgers’ ability to create for themselves. Kennesaw finished with only two assists to its 12 turnovers, while the Badgers excelled in that department, as usual, with 23 and 10, respectively. As a result, Wisconsin frequently was able to consume the majority of the shot clock and convert opportunities – especially from outside. For the game, UW converted 15 of its 25 three-pointers, good for 60 percent.“[The Badgers are] one of the best shooting teams, late-clock, in the country; probably, the best overall,” Preston said. “It was kind of indicative with some of the threes that Brust knocked down, a couple of the threes that Jordan Taylor knocked down, a couple of the threes Gasser knocked down.”In the second half, the Owls shot a little better, converting seven of 20 (35 percent) opportunities from the field. However, the Badgers also shot better (64 percent compared to 53.8 in the first half) and used their obvious size advantage to murder KSU on the boards, out-rebounding them 41-20. Junior forward Mike Bruesewitz, in addition to his seven points and four assists, pulled down a game-high eight rebounds.“We’ve got bigs who can set good screens and then roll or space out and knock down shots, so it makes it hard for teams to scramble late in the shot clock,” Taylor said. “Our bigs can also put it on the floor and make plays. It’s just a lot for a team to try and handle, especially when you’re scrambling around like that.”Also of note was the playing time freshman Traevon Jackson and Frank Kaminsky saw in their first games as Badgers. Jackson, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound guard and son of former Ohio State great Jim Jackson, played 13 minutes, nailed one trey and pulled down two rebounds. Kaminsky, a 6-foot-11, 230-pound forward, played 10 minutes, scored five points and pulled down five rebounds.
Sam Arslanian | Daily TrojanThe Los Angeles Angels are off to their best start since 1979. Touting a 13-3 record in their first 16 games, the team has made a complete 180 compared to their previous two seasons, where the Angels finished 21 games behind the league leader in both 2017 and 2016. I’ve thought a lot about what the special sauce has been for the team in their recipe for success this year. In evaluating their success, there is no way to avoid talking about Halo’s two stars. First and foremost, there is Mike Trout. He has simply been a beast so far, not that he wasn’t a beast before. Trout is the most well-rounded baseball player in the MLB. There is no question about that; he is the definition of the term “five tool.” His batting average (.266) may not completely reflect that right now, but he leads the Angels in homers, RBIs and on-base percentage. But no one man makes a team, and for the first time in a couple years the Angels look like they have that figured out. The Angels hold the best team batting average in the MLB, and are in first place in runs — with the next team nearly 20 runs behind — and they have the third-best fielding percentage. The only team that could hold a candle to the Halos is the Boston Red Sox; hopefully, we will see that matchup in October.In addition to Trout, the Angels have another exciting, yet unconventional star in Shohei Ohtani. It is unprecedented to see a player like him. Madison Bumgarner is the only pitcher that I can think of who drew headlines for hitting performances. The difference is that MadBum hit well for a pitcher, while Ohtani stacks up with the league’s best bats on any given day. Oh, and of course, he’s a solid pitcher.Robert Whiting, the author of several books on Japanese baseball, noted that Ohtani will find success in the MLB because of his unique traits.“It’s hard to top a guy who wins two games and hits three home runs in a week,” Whiting told ESPN. “He is very affable and could well have a long career in American baseball — but most likely as a pitcher.”I do, however, think some of the “Sho-hype” is a bit premature — he’s been in the league for 15 games. There is no reason his signed rookie card should be selling for nearly seven grand at this point. Perhaps, there is another way to look at how Ohtani has benefited the Angels. At 23 years old and coming from the Japanese league, Sho undoubtedly breaks the norm of the Angels — a relatively older team. The level of excitement and freshness Ohtani brings must give the team some sort of spark that has lifted the Angels to such a fantastic start. In recent years, streaky seasons have haunted the Angels. At this point we are only about 10 percent of the way through the 162-game season, so the Angels need to beware of losing skids and injuries. Those unfortunate events are bound to happen — it’s a long season — but the Angels’ success will be defined by how they evade and recover from these downfalls.It’s entirely possible for the Angels to make a run deep into October. It’s a peculiar trend in baseball, because star teams don’t necessarily guarantee rings in Major League Baseball. But the 2018 Angels aren’t the Golden State Warriors nor the 2015 Detroit Tigers. The wealth of talent is different; it’s new, fresh and diverse. Any team that can mix the success of young and old, hitting and pitching and fast and slow will find success in the MLB.

Aaron Ramsey scored in stoppage time to break the resolve of Crystal Palace and give title contenders Arsenal a winning start to their league campaign.Managerless Palace looked set for a point but had forward Jason Puncheon sent off for a second offence in the 89th minute before Ramsey pounced.The visitors took a shock first-half lead when Brede Hangeland headed in.The Gunners equalised just before the break when Laurent Koscielny nodded home from Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick.Despite kicking off their Premier League challenge with a win, it was an inauspicious start having barely made Palace keeper Julian Speroni work for his wage.Apart from the two goals, the only other time the Palace stopper was called to save his team was when he pushed away Jack Wilshere’s drive in the first half. Credit for keeping Arsenal at bay should be given to Palace caretaker boss Keith Millen. The 47-year-old, originally from down the road in Croydon, was thrust into the hot-seat on Thursday following the shock departure of Tony Pulis.So having had less than 48 hours to plan Palace’s assault on their London rivals, Millen’s team did brilliantly to restrict the Gunners for so long.But their good work came undone in three minutes at the death, when first they were reduced to 10 men when Puncheon went in late on Nacho Monreal, before Ramsey grabbed the winner. The Wales midfielder was quickest to the loose ball after Mathieu Debuchy’s snap-shot had been saved.Wenger might point to the fact he did not have his full squad available for the opening match as a reason for the below-par display – only five of the many who spent their summer in Brazil started today.One of those absent was Germany’s World Cup winning defender Per Mertesacker, who might have made a better fist of preventing Hangeland from scoring. The Norway player, who had not scored in the previous three league season for Fulham, was inexplicably left by Sanchez to roam to the near post to meet Puncheon’s corner.However, just before half-time, the hero at the other end appeared to lose his bearings as Koscielny sneaked clear to connect with Sanchez’s lofted free-kick.It was a good Premier League debut for Arsenal’s £35m Chile forward, who worked well out wide in a four-man attacking midfield.But it was when one of the other players rested, France striker Olivier Giroud, was introduced in the second half that the Gunners looked like a team who could steal the points.And in the closing seconds, the club’s top scorer last season played a key role when he headed the ball across goal for Debuchy whose shot was saved, only for team-mate Ramsey to tuck in.

Gonzaga wins if …The Bulldogs don’t lose patience on offense and stick with consistently getting the ball to dangerous areas of the floor. We saw Saint Mary’s successfully strangle the Gonzaga offense in the West Coast Conference championship game, in which wing Zach Norvell shot 1 of 11 from the field trying to force action. He can be a game-changing offensive player, but he has to know when he’s changing it for the better. Clarke and Hachimura got only 14 shots combined in that game. FSU’s defense should be even more effective; those two cannot be sealed off from access to the ball.Florida State wins if …The Seminoles are able to prevent the Zags from turning this into a faster-paced game. FSU has three victories this month against teams still standing in the Sweet 16, and didn’t hit the 75-point mark in any of them. In a half-court game, the Seminoles could create a lot of discomfort for Perkins, who runs the show for Gonzaga and shot only 3 of 9 from the field when matched against FSU in this round a year ago. The Seminoles care less about who scores the points than any team in this tournament — not just in the sense of being unselfish, but in terms of having the ability to pick the matchup that works the best for that particular game.
